Why Children Will Love The Crane

Why Children Will Love The Crane

Planning a family trip is fun but it can also be a little stressful for parents who want their children to fully enjoy the experience. Here are six reasons why children will love The Crane Resort.

Calypso Kids’ Club

This club for children was named after the traditional music of Barbados which is known for being lively and fun. The Calypso Kids’ Club reflects the characteristics of the music with lively and fun activities for children. Children will enjoy their activities such as arts and crafts, story time, nature time and more with friendly and professional staff. This kids’ club is complimentary and for children ages 4 – 12 years.

Kid’s Pools

The Cliff Pool Complex is a hit for families staying at The Crane, as there’s something for everyone. This complex is made up of a children’s wading pool, a waterfall pool and an alfresco Jacuzzi spa pool. This pool complex is perfect for families with the wading pool being perfect for smaller children. Bigger children can enjoy the other pools while parents can lounge on the deck or join the children for some pool fun in the sun.


The Crane set the standard for luxury accommodations, but these rooms are also great for family vacations. The rooms are spacious and some even have their own private pools! Children might never want to leave.

Crane Beach

Crane Beach has received many accolades over the years because of its incredible beauty. The beach, which can be accessed by stairs or a glass front elevator, is also popular among younger guests. Children have fun building sand castles, frolicking by the shore and exploring. With supervision, they can enjoy boogie boarding and swimming in the inviting blue water. At the end of beach days, children never want to leave and they usually can’t wait to return the following day.

Koi Ponds

The Crane has several koi ponds around the property. Children are usually excited to watch these beautiful fish in these ponds. They are always amazed by the varying sizes and colours and some even feed the fish which can be a very exciting experience.

Friendly Staff

As a plus, The Crane has wonderful staff. The staff are warm, welcoming and helpful and are definitely children friendly. They try to make families feel comfortable and at home and they always keep a special eye on children to ensure they they’re safe and having fun.
