At The Crane Resort, we value every guest and we remain focused on meeting our guests’ expectations. Here are some top reviews from TripAdvisor of some of our recent guest experiences:

Fantastic View in A Bossed Up Penthouse! 😎

This penthouse is mindblowing! My family and I were in Barbados for my moms wedding and we came here right after she got married. The staff are very friendly and they brought my mom a gorgeous bouquet of flowers to congratulate her shortly after we arrived💗. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom penthouse on the highest floor (5th floor) where you can see the entire view of Diamond Valley. We also had a long beautiful balcony with a 4ft. plush pool. To top it off there is a rooftop terrace with a jacuzzi and the view up there is to die for! On the rooftop there is also a BBQ grill and a sink for entertaining. There is a washer and dryer in the penthouse with huge amounts of space in every area of the house. They have restaurants on the resort, one restaurant particularly one on a cliff with a fabulous view. The service there was excellent and I ate the best steak I've ever had 😍. To top it off, they also offer room service! I will never forget this resort, it was spectacular!

Absolutely Beautiful experience

I am absolutely happy we chose this resort for our vacation. We stayed here for 7 nights . The entrance of this resort alone makes you realize that you made the right choice. The staff is super friendly and all restaurants we went had delicious foods. The beautiful view of the Atlantic ocean is one you'll never forget because the hotel is located on a cliff. The King ocean suite is very spacious. This resort I highly recommend to any family seeking to have a high standard family vacation. I cannot wait to return to this resort.

The Crane Resort - Outstanding!

Just returned after 7 nights at the Crane resort. We stayed in a King Ocean view suite and was not disappointed. Very large and beautifully appointed suite with full kitchen, separate living area, huge master suite and bathroom, plus another full bathroom and washer/dryer. The Crane has multiple restaurants on site and the food was exceptional. The Crane village at the resort is a big plus. The pools and grounds are beautifully maintained and landscaped. The staff are very pleasant and attentive to guests needs. The Crane is located on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic ocean with stunning views.

Very friendly and engaging staff.

We had a most relaxing week as anticipated. The staff is so friendly and helpful. A fantastic, quiet get away if you want seclusion from the busier west side of the island. This is a top rated resort which has consistently exceeded expectations on each of many visits.

Family holiday

If you want to completely relax and “get away from it all” then The Crane has it all!

Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly and helpful staff and with fine restaurants offering good food, a bar with nightly live entertainment, swimming pools, a spa and a gorgeous beach, you need never leave the Crane if you don’t want to!

It’s safe, it caters for your every need, it’s a true piece of Paradise!
