This is a small, charming hotel on the east coast. The views of the Atlantic Ocean are stunning with the rough surf and crashing waves. It is not safe for swimming, though. You need to go to the west coast for that which is a good drive. The restaurant is excellent but there is little else within walking distance. This hotel is perfect if you want a quiet stay.
A stay at the Sea-U gives you a completely different experience of Barbados compared with the upmarket glitz of the west coast and the all-inclusive fun of the south coast. The island's east coast, and Bathsheba in particular, is wild and unspoilt and Sea-U fits perfectly into this ambiance with its traditionally built wooden buildings and relaxed atmosphere.

It was a very nice hotel ,clean,air conditioned rooms and a communal swimming pool. The only problem might be the location as its a little off the beaten path . For those who would prefer their hotel located nearer the beach or centres of activities then this would not suit your needs. It's about a 20 min drive (yes you'll need to hire a car if you choose this hotel) to the nearest beach . But overall, this hotel is for guests who would want a stay in a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist trail .
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.
Excellent situation if you enjoy peace and quiet and being able to sit and watch the ocean.sandy swimming beaches restaurants etc are not far but you need a car or you can use the frequent local buses which stop a few minutes walk away and go all up and down the south coast .
We were pleased with our room and the help fullness of staff and considered it ocean spray good value
We stayed there just recently. The hotel is lovely and the rooms are very clean. As an elite plus member they did upgrade us to a room which was ocean front. If you want ocean front you better specify because on of their buildings is ocean view and is across the street. The room was nice and had a refrigerator and a microwave. I do suggest going to the supermarket for water, beer, and snacks. The restaurant at the hotel has decent food but it is very expensive. You can go right next door to the surf shop and get beer for $2.00/ each its about $5.00 at the hotel bar. You can also go to surfers bay restaurant and bar which is a short beach walk and has good food and is very reasonable. Nice place to hang out. The hotel is a bit far but if you have a car its not that bad. Honestly we loved the seclusion. The pool area is lovely there are beds all around the pool and ocean front to lay on. You might wanna invest in a small cooler to bring drinks to the pool area so you don't have to buy them from the bar. The hotel staff is super friendly. My main complaint was the internet service was terrible. If you are ocean front you CANNOT get internet in your room. If you are on the street side you can get internet. I was not happy about that because it said internet in all the rooms but I am told they are working on that. All and all is was an amazing vacation. Barbados is beautiful and I cannot wait to return. Nice place for couples or families.
