My fiancé and I selected The Crane as we were interested in a quiet get away to enjoy the beach and recharge our minds and bodies. The Crane certainly didn't disappoint. A picturesque, impeccably maintained resort perched on cliff with spectacular views of the ocean. The photos do not do it justice. And Crane Beach, although public, rarely has anyone on it except resort guests so it feels like a private beach. We never had any challenges getting resort provided beach chairs and umbrellas throughout our 9day stay. The food at the restaurants onsite was delicious and very high quality. Resort staff are friendly and the room exceeded expectations. We had a king one bedroom ocean view on the views from the balcony were spectacular. I recommend taking the Crane's exclusive Cool Runnings catamaran cruise. We can't wait to return to the Crane on our next visit to Barbados
Upon arrival got in fine through security and everything. Caught a cab to the apartment 2 bedroom was nice. I liked what I saw but here is the kicker. It was about 8 to 10 miles from the main city and is located in a residential area. The neighbors were friendly. There is a gasoline station and restaurants for food within walking distance. The bus runs outside the street for $1.00.
I am not sure I would stay here again only because of the distance. I enjoyed Barbados very much and would go again. Stay in Christ Church or Bridgetown. Not close to the airport. If you stay near the airport please rent a car this place is not convenient. Owners are super nice.
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 .
