Great Privacy if you book the right room.Posted Oct 16, 2014
Pros: Personal pool and privacy.
Cons: Room survive and checking the rooms before guests arrive.
Location: Hotel is far away from the usual haunts but all are within 20-30 minutes. I stayed there to be away from the action.
Booked a room with a plunge pool with a sea view. Got in at 8pm Friday. Check in was typical for hotels, got to room and realised that I was upgraded to a room with a 12ft personal pool on the veranda and sea view but AC wasn't working. It took over a hour for them to find a temporary room and make sure that the amenities were all present. Replacement room was same size but the veranda had a staircase to the roof with a pool, garden, BBQ grill full BBQ station with large table. Though this was a garden view room, the privacy and amenities, I thought, were nicer. Went back to the original room the next day and enjoyed the rest of the weekend (oh I had to ask for towels and a iron and ironing board). Had the buffet breakfast, it was fairly good but the one day that I took room service it took forever. With the size of the property I expected it to be a while but it took really, really (>2hrs) long. I requested a late checkout at 6pm and got it complimentary, due to the earlier AC inconvenience. Overall good experience. Would return without second thought but avoid the room service. Definitely would book the temporary room over my original booking.

The Crane is spectacular!Posted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: The location, the grounds, the look and feel and the staff.
Cons: The air conditioning is a little lacking but we also realize we are not used to the heat and at home keep our house fairly cool.
Location: The hotel is on the southeast coast so the water is rougher than the west coast but also less crowded than the west coast beaches.
Having never been to Barbados, my husband and I did not know what to expect. You see lovely pictures, read reviews but you are always taking a chance. I have to say the Crane was as beautiful, if not more beautiful, than the website or pictures others have provided. The grounds are a tropical paradise. The staff was over the top helpful, courteous and friendly. In some cases, they could be more informative but it was our understanding there had been some recent changes. All of the restaurants on site were very good and accommodating. We were served quickly and the wait staff were very timely in their responsiveness. We loved the facility so much we are considering the option of a timeshare which is something we have never considered before. The people of the island are extremely friendly as well. We will definitely return soon.

Hotel had lot of charm and amenities in the suite.Posted Sep 2, 2014
Hotel was in good condition and service was friendly but slow. Great spot if you just went to chill and stay on property and not interested in doing anything on the island outside of the property. Close too airport. Would recommend it for a vacation where you just want to chill in a great environment.

Disappointing.Posted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: The jacuzzi
Cons: The shutters in my room were broken, the floor was dirty, the bed was always half way made, four nights in a row I had to call for clean towels.
I expected a lot more from the facilities and was disappointed. The bathroom was the best room and the staff was very friendly. There was construction going on and the premises was not as clean as it could.be.

Need transportationPosted Aug 16, 2014
The facilities and staff are outstanding. Hard to get around, driving on the left and poorly marked roads. Taxis are expensive. But still a great place.

Excellent hotelPosted Jul 15, 2014
The hotel was excellent with its own beach. This is the hotel if u want peace and tranquility, as it's far from the town. However local buses and taxi's are there or you can hire a car. Nice contained village feel, with all that you need! Nice pools and a beautiful beach. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Must do silver moon cater man cruise, harbour lights and Atlantis submarine, these can be organised through the hotel. Highly recommend an ocean view room too. Food is expensive, but most restaurants in Barbados seem lthe same in terms of price. Bar is great, rum punch is perfect for the climate!. Great hotel, beautiful barbados!

The Crane is a wonderful resort. We enjoy the Atlantic Ocean and this is the best location for that. The staff was friendly and helpful. The resort is set away from other resorts and hotels but, you can rent a car or get a taxi to other areas. We rented the two bedroom which was ample space for our family of four. There are plenty of activities you can set up through the hotel.

lovely stayPosted Jun 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
We spent 11 days at the hotel and had an incredible time. The beach and pools were amazing, the staff was very helpful and the other guests were friendly. Lots of people from different countries. There isn't much bad I can say, I would definitely recommend it!
