We stayed in room 432. It has a million dollar view and the accomodations were lovely, with daily cleaning service. Our kids love the beach and and the pools. D'Onofrio's restaurant was excellent dining. The trade winds kept the unit nice and cool. We loved it here!

This resort is amazing!! Our room was more like an apartment, the views were stunning, the workers went out of their way to make sure you had everything you needed! We are usually "pool" people but we were at the beach everyday!! Big shout out to Dwayne on the beach!! Every day he made sure we had our lounge chairs...

I had ocean view one bedroom suite in Windy Ridge building. Better than pictured on their website. The General Store wasn't great for supplies and the people working in it were not helpful. This was not the case for anywhere else. The Carriage House for lunch overlooking the pools and the ocean was great. L'Azure breakfasts/ buffet make for the...

We've been visiting for 8 to twelve weeks every year since 2000. Frequently bring friends and family who love it. Wonderful breeze and fresh air, wonderful shade and amenities. Best sun is earlier morning and later afternoon, but possible at any time. Friendly helpful staff, amazing beach and surf, lovely locals. Quite safe to wonder off campus or round the...

Had an amazing time in Barbados, loved the island and The Crane. The people are super friendly and helpful. Note, the beach is beautiful but the water is very rough. Big waves and strong tide. I lost my GoPro Camera and sun glasses in the beach as I got hit by a massive wave. If anyone finds, please let me...

Lots of fabulous stuff - the beach is great, the accommodation with full kitchens and multiple restaurants means the perfect combination for mixing self catering with eating out, the cafe we used a lot with great coffee cakes and ice-cream, the pools are fabulous and most of the staff are terrific. We used the Crane fast track and transfer service...

We have just enjoyed a few days of relaxation at the Crane resort. We had a garden view suite, which was large and had a well equipped kitchenette. This enabled us to self cater easily for some of our meals. Rooms were clean but had a few issues, including very noisy air conditioning, and the shutters would not close properly,...

Beautiful part of the island the landscape and beach are great. But during our 6 day stay it rained all day on the 3rd day, while we were out during the pouring rain our room sprung a leak in the bathroom behind some tiles causing a puddle throughout the room, it was so bad that the power went out twice....

Great place to kick back and relax for a romantic get away. Leave the kids at home for this one. If your looking to just hang out by the beach and pool without the hustle and bustle of the typical resort this is the place. There are plenty of options to enjoy eating and drinking to keep you occupied from...

My husband I stayed in a spacious one-bedroom suite for a week in June. From the courteous bellman and efficient seated check-in process to the housekeeping staff, Crane staff are top-notch. The variety of pools is fantastic but nothing beats having your own private plunge pool as we did! And forget about air-conditioning, there's endless fresh breeze. The range of...

Guests are spoilt for choice with ultra-spacious one and two-bedroom suites, and three bedroom penthouses, many featuring lush gardens, private pools and rooftop terraces. There are also several fantastic dining options, including Zen, the No.1 Zagat rated restaurant in Barbados, which features Thai and Japanese cuisine, L'Azure which offers Caribbean delicacies with an international flair, The Carriage House which offers poolside favourites, D'Onofrio's, the Italian restaurant and The Grove Bar and Grill on Crane Beach which offers light grilled fare. The centre-piece of it all is The Crane Village - 55,000 sq. ft. of retail space complete with duty-free shopping, a Jazz bar, open-air dining, a fitness centre, day spa, an art gallery and the newly opened Calypso Kid's Club catering to younger guests.
