What's to Love

The property is on one of the best beaches in Barbados. Plus, every suite has been finished to an incredible standard.

What We'd Change

The beach is beautiful but not that gentle, and the waves can get quite big. On the upside, there are 6 great pools!

Why You Should Go

If you want elegant accommodation, a huge beach, and some nice restaurants, this is the place to go.

Hotel Description

Crane Resort and Residences: Get Away From It All

The Crane Resort and Residences is located on spectacular Crane Beach, named one of the "Top Ten Beaches in the World" by Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, and overlooks a half-mile of pink sands. Known for casual luxury and warm hospitality, many of the resort's luxurious suites feature their own private pools or gardens. The Crane Resort offers on-site shopping and superb dining - including Zagat's #1 Restaurant for Food in Barbados.

The first sight that will take your breath away is The Crane's unique clifftop setting on one of the most beautiful pieces of beachfront in the world, the Southeast coast of Barbados. For history buffs, this is a great place to be since this hotel holds the unique distinction of being the island's oldest hotel! Not to worry though, the facilities are all new. Now transformed from a very small property into a first class resort, The Crane still maintains its historic and intimate feel while boasting new and luxurious amenities.

From the moment you step foot into the hotel, its management and staff will be at your service. In fact, the resort's increasing emphasis on service has been rewarded with AAA designation.

After you've had your fill of the beach, it's time to fill your tummy. The hotel's dining has been twice rated number one by Zagat for best food in Barbados. Enjoy some magnificent Japanese/Thai fine dining with seafood fresh from the ocean.

Not sure what else you want to do? Crane Guest Services agents provide personalized service to give you an insider's view of Barbados and The Crane. This includes assistance with transportation, island tours, sailing and diving trips, spa reservations, in-room salon services, babysitting services, golf tee times, restaurant recommendations, Crane property tours, and more!
