The best resort in the Caribbean!

Wonderful rooms with the best views in Barbados and the grounds were beautifully maintained. Staff friendly and helpful. Couldn't ask for a better experience. Luxury at it's finest. Restaurants, shops, bar, the best beach ever and many wonderful pools.

At the world's edge in Barbados

Crane resort is a classy property with views to die for - anywhere the eye goes it takes your breath away, whether it's a plant, stone on a walking path or mind numbing expanse of the ocean ahead. Buildings are beautifully appointed, with nature's touch present in the best of ways. Staff are friendly, patient, and helpful. Love this home away from home!

Ahh paradise

We stayed here for one week as a celebration for my birthday. It was great in every way. The staff were so helpful and friendly. The concierge in particular was great. She arranged for an island tour for my husband and I and had wine and dessert sent to our room for my birthday. The resort is gorgeous. It is tranquil and so relaxing. Our room had an ocean view. We slept with the sounds of waves crashing and crickets and frogs chirping. The room was very comfortable and spacious. It was great to have a kitchen to use. The beach had bright blue water and soft sand. I enjoyed every minute of my time there I especially loved the bar at the beach. The mahi mahi wraps were great. We ate at all the restaurants in the resort except Zen. The food was very good everywhere. We also walked to nearby Foul Bay beach which is a nice walk to a very beautiful spot outside the resort. Loved this place and can’t wait to return.

All I ever wanted

If you want quiet, beautiful surroundings, brilliant blue ocean, fine dining, it’s here’s! If you want to add more excitement to your stay you can... the many pools with amazing scenery and endless ocean views are a must.
Every single staff member was helpful, friendly, and engaging. More than willing to help or share there knowledge or lend a suggestion.
The accommodations were exactly what we pictured. Beautiful, updated, well kept.
We dined at the Zen with window seating and ocean view....wow gorgeous. The food and service equally good.

The beach was spectacular as was the beach staff, fun, happy people !
We will be sure to make this one of our top resort Island spots from now on.
