Luxury 1-bedroom Deluxe Park Residence (includes sofa bed and second cloak room with shower and so can comfortably accommodate 4). The residence is air-conditioned and has traditional mahogany furniture, including 4-poster king-size bed. A large en-suite bathroom, with separate shower and Jacuzzi bath. A large balcony that can be accessed from both bedroom and living area. Two large flat screen TVs, safe, in room WiFi and a daily maid/room service. The Crane Hotel was built in 1887 and the resort was recently sympathetically renovated and expanded, to include several swimming pools/jacuzzi pool, a variety of restaurants/bars, spa, gym, floodlit tennis courts and a duty- free retail shopping village. The Crane Beach has been declared “one of the ten best beaches in the world” and has a glass fronted elevator to the beach. This truly unique property combines elegance, old-world charm and an incredible natural beauty with a romantic sense of seclusion.
We have been visiting Barbados since the mid-1980’s and then were fortunate enough to live on the Island for 3 years from 2007 to 2009. Having fallen in love with Barbados, we knew that we would always want to frequently return to the Island. Hence, we decided to invest in The Crane and purchased a quarter share in a 1-bed deluxe park residence. We plan to spend 2-3 months each year at The Crane when we retire, but until then we privately rent out ten of our weeks each year, which can be booked at any time throughout the year.

The Crane Hotel, built in 1887 has been sympathetically restored into a luxury 5-Star resort. It is set on the world-famous Crane Beach, overlooking a perfect azure blue sea. It is simply the most beautiful and enchanting resort on the Island of Barbados – for us there was no other choice – this is Barbados at its finest!
Recognized for its stunning beauty, The Crane Beach was named ‘one of the Ten Best Beaches in the World’ by Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Lounge on the spectacular powder soft, pink sand, caressed by the rays of the Caribbean sun and fanned by gentle trade winds and you will understand why the Crane Resort is regarded by those that know it as one of the most beautiful places anywhere in the world!
This truly unique property combines elegance, old-world charm and incredible natural beauty with a romantic sense of seclusion, creating a feeling among guests of having retreated to a spot on earth where life is truly…simpler.
The unique benefits of staying at the property include the many facilities of The Crane Resort, plus the use of Guest Services, who give an insider view of Barbados and The Crane and are always there to assist with advice and recommendations. There are five swimming pools and a large Jacuzzi pool, a variety of restaurants and bars, a Serenity Spa and Wellness Centre, a gym, floodlit tennis courts and a duty- free retail shopping village. Most of these facilities are only available to residents of The Crane.
The apartment is beautiful and very comfortable, you feel like you are at home and it has all the amenities you need for self catering. Maids come in daily and clean so it makes such a great cross between self catering and a hotel - you can also have room service from the restaurants in the village. Julie was extremely helpful with information on Barbados to make sure our stay was the best it could be, I couldn't have asked for anymore.
Just to let you know we had a fab time at the Crane, your residence is perfect and we are very envious!! The resort and beach were beautiful and the staff were so polite and friendly it was unreal!

Beautiful property and grounds in a stunning location. We had a very relaxing holiday and made use of all the restaurants and both the pools. Would definitely recommend.
Beautiful property and well recommended. Property and grounds were immaculate and we had a very relaxing stay.
Our apartment within the overall facilities of the Crane Resort was large, spacious, super clean and fabulously equipped. It had two full bathrooms and a superb private balcony. There are several pools on the large property of the resort with spectacular views of the Atlantic sea. The Crane beach itself is fabulously gorgeous with some of the best sand you will ever find. But it is NOT a beach if you like to swim in the sea - only for playing around in the shallow part near the shoreline. My only criticism (which is in no way a refection of the apartment we stayed in) is that the Crane resort itself - having splendid grounds and amazing pools and friendly helpful staff - is super expensive to eat at the restaurants and shop for supplies, and the resort itself feels charmless and fabricated. If you don't have a car then you are quite isolated within its walls with a sense of being in a gated community. You cant walk around and explore anything except the resort itself.
On another note, Julie and Peter who rented us the apartment were excellent do deal with - easy to contact, and always answered my emails within 24 hours. I sent money to a bank in the UK via wire transfer and it was super easy and the money was received with no problem at all within 2-3 days.
The Crane is a fantastic resort with great facilities. The staff are friendly and helpful. The beach and pools are amazing. We arranged a hire car via the concierge as you need one to explore the island - the Crane is away from the main touristy areas and taxis can be very expensive as there are no meters. All in all very good value - I would recommend the Crane to friends.
The property was everything we expected it to be. It was tastefully decorated, well presented and excellently maintained. Julie and Peter were exceptional in responding to all our questions and provided us with some very useful information. The Crane resort itself had all the amenities we required without being over commercial. The beach which is normally beautiful was often covered in a sea moss but The Crane beach management are installing a seaweed boom which we hope will resolve the problem.
Beautiful resort with everything one needs for a great holiday contained within the 5 star resort including a fantastic beach .
No hesitation in recommending Crane to anyone looking for that special holiday.

Restaurants, spa, and shopping at The Crane can be purchased and charged to the residence and settled on departure. Including beverages and light meals from The Beach Hut on Crane Beach.
The only additional charge is for the air-con if used, which is on a meter – we prefer to open the windows and let the natural gentle trade winds keep the residence cool.
