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 recently traveled on 3/6 to 3/12 and stayed at The Crane. The grounds were lovely, the staff extremely pleasant, the rooms are beautiful and the food is delicious. The wonderful staff was warm and so accommodating during our whole trip. We were initially in room 831b which was a beautiful jr suite however it was in a very loud location with some repair work outside during the day and karaoke/ live entertainment at night. Traveling with a baby who needed naps we asked if we could change rooms and we were upgraded to a full suite across the way. It was amazing, full kitchen, 2 baths, Jacuzzi tub, living and dining room and huge porch area. Breathtaking and so very relaxing with zero noise besides the animals at night and birds early morning. The restaurants were great, we ate at the Italian place twice which is delicious. The outside pool restaurant was good too for burgers. The cafe for deserts was great we snacked on scones and ice cream. The only place I wouldn't recommend is the breakfast buffet. It was extremely overpriced, I'm assuming you are paying for the view not the food. The pools are lovely and my only complaint was not enough shaded lounging areas. We got there early some days yet they were all taken. My assumption is people put their towels out early to reserve them because often I didn't see anyone in them. Owner should add a few more overhang areas so more can enjoy the pool. It is hot so after an hour we had to leave each day, the sun is very strong. The beach is okay, I've been to better and there's alot of seaweed most days, however the view is pretty from the cliffs. Great for pictures! We felt extremely safe and welcomed and if the beach were a bit more like the ones on the west coast we'd probably stay again. Overall a great place to stay if you like luxury style rooms and good food for a reasonable price.

We spent a celebratory weekend at the crane. From arrival all the staff were very friendly. We had a lovely room, very clean and spacious. There was even flowers and wine and a lovely card congratulating us on our birthday and anniversary celebrations. We ate at Zen on our first night and the food and service were exceptional. The food overall was very good and the service in all the resturants was great. There was no need to leave the resort for the weekend. All areas of the resort are clean and appear to be well taken care off. We will definitely be coming again.

What a fabulous property! You want for nothing when you are at The Crane. The food is very tasty, the property clean and lush, accommodations are turn key perfect. The beds are comfortable and it was nice having a kitchen and pool in the unit. The bar had nightly entertainment that I enjoyed. Great local musicians and singers! The staff at The Crane went above and beyond during my trip. I had a bad reaction to a bug bite and they helped to get me to an excellent medical clinic for treatment and followed up for the remainder of my stay as I got better. The Barbadian people are lovely and very kind! Thanks for making my vacation one I will not forget. I will definitely be back!
