The Crane Resort in Saint Philip, Barbados

Situated on one of Barbados's best beaches and touted as the first resort to grace the Caribbean, The Crane Residential Resort is an haute and historic retreat at once. Overlooking Crane Beach, the original hotel - once a 19th-century mansion - has been restored to its original splendor. Each of the rooms enjoys high ceilings, hardwood floors and authentic antique furnishings, coupled with oversize four-poster beds carved from mahogany. Complementing the historic mansion are the newly-built Junior Suites with Garden View, featuring bay windows with cedar shutters, mini-kitchens and a furnished balcony or terrace. The Private Residences are also available and come with incredible amenities such as coral stone walls, private plunge or full-size pools, and all the privacy you can envision.

The Crane Residential Resort houses some delightful dining venues including L'Azure Restaurant, known for its tempting range of classic Caribbean dishes, fresh seafood and panoramic ocean views. Nestled at the heart of charming Crane Village D'Onofrio's is perfect for families with younger children. There is a wide choice of pizzas and pastas, as well as Old World classic dishes. The Grove Bar & Grill offers casual beachside dining in authentic Barbadian style. Enjoy the Carriage House Poolside Restaurant, a century-old stable transformed into a chatty space where guests can enjoy divine food and tropical cocktails all day long. Swim in one of four sparkling pools, including an infinity-edge design as well as another pool that teeters on the edge of a cliff. The beach, with its powdery texture and lush coconut grove, is protected by a natural coral reef and offers the best swimming on the island

We stayed here for a week in August and loved every moment of our stay. The hotel was lovely, the views gorgeous at every turn and the staff warm and friendly. While we had plans to leave the resort and partake in other island activities we ended up being so in love the the resort we only left twice (once for the Ostin's Fish Fry , and once for a catamaran cruise) We still think of it everyday and we hope to return!

I visited the hotel beach on a previous trip to Barbados and I fell in love with the hotel. I promised my that I would return for a stay. My husband and I spent 4 nights & 5 days at this beautiful hotel. The rooms and hotel were always clean, comfortable and it great condition. The sea breeze is unmatched, I just lounged around by the pool and the breeze made me doze off numerous times. I had not a care in the world lol. For us, the only drawback with this hotel is its location. It's away from Bridgetown, other hotels, restaurants and popular spots like the Gap. All of these are about 30mins drive away. If you're looking for a hotel that's away from the tourist hustle and bustle then The Crane is for you.

We spent 5 nights at the Crane this month because we needed to get a break for a few days. It was our first proper stay at a hotel in Barbados, and we wanted somewhere where we could really relax and unwind. Turns out the Crane was the perfect choice! It was absolutely stunning, very relaxing indeed and the staff were genuinely friendly. The food was great, the nightly entertainment was very enjoyable, and the added bonus of a lovely art gallery with local art was very welcome. The jacuzzi in the room was great for relaxing in and the bed was super comfortable. We will definitely be back!

I am currently staying at the Crane in a 2 Bedroom Penthouse with Plunge Pool, suite 952A. This resort is certainly not up to par with the standard that they pretend to uphold. The room, while nice and large, is becoming extremely dated and maintenance is definitely an issue both in the room and at the resort in general. Light bulbs are burned out in various fixtures in the room, doors stick and do not open once closed, the appliances are dated, especially the microwave, the blender had no blades, the dryer portion of the washer/dryer did not dry clothes, hot water was virtually non-existent and no maintenance was done on the plunge pool for the entire length of our stay which, by the 5th day of our 9 day stay, was sucking air and gurgling loudly due to the low water level. We could also look down from our balcony to the 28’ Infinity Edge garden pools which, at no point during our stay had enough water in them to have the infinity edge work and were never, during the course of our 9 day stay cleaned or maintained in any way and, in fact, had cups and various refuse floating in them. This suite also has an adjoining Junior Suite which can be utilized as a 3rd bedroom if wanted. Even though the resort was no where near capacity during our 8 day stay, a couple was checked into the room on Tuesday, who proceeded to have a domestic dispute and smoke marijuana repeatedly, every day for the remainder of our stay. Even though this was reported twice to security via telephone and once, directly, to the front desk, nothing was done. Evidently the staff and management at The Crane condone the use of marijuana even though it is illegal in Barbados. While the staff at the resort were pleasant I would not, in any way, recommend this resort to anyone and will definitely, in future, stay at the Sandals resort on the island where the illegal drug policy is both stipulated in the in room literature and enforced. I have reported all of this to a relative who works in the tourism industry on the island in the hopes that she, in conjunction with this review, can steer people clear of this once beautiful resort.
