About Julie and Peter Morgan
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.
Julie and Peter Morgan purchased this Hotel Suites in 2010
Why Julie and Peter Morgan chose Diamond Valley
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!

Crane Beach Resort Barbados
Loved our stay at Crane Beach Resort in Barbados...Julie was very helpful in making the entire process easy...the staff at the resort were awesome!
I stayed for 3 weeks in Barbados at this property. It is really only a large hotel room with ensuite bathroom. Sadly it is interconnected by a locked door to another room. This was occupied during most of my stay by families with babies and children and was extremely noisy at night with babies crying. I also have to say the property was not as described in the
' Notes' section of the description on the site. It does not have a washer/dryer as stated. The very small. kitchen area had 2 knives 2 forks 2 plates and 2 cups. and 2 glasses, 2 pans and minibar sized fridge. I merely mention this in case anyo
ne is hoping for a full kitchen as is usually the case with properties advertised on Homeaway. I ate out most of the time. This property is in a Time Share hotel Hotel which is rather isolated from the rest of the Island. so you would need a car or be prepared to take taxis everywhere. However the grounds of the resort are very very nice. several pools, and what would normally be a very lovely beach. This is covered with sargassum smelly seaweed which is brought in by the Atlantic tide. They do not have this problem on the Carribean side of the Island. This has been deposited on the beach since 2008 according to the people I spoke with. The Hotel offers really 7 day cheap packages from Canada and the US and is now being run by Hilton Grand Vacations.
Barbados surprised me as the people on the Island are very poor the Island is in need of TLC especially the roads and the there are only a few beaches which have not been seriously eroded by the sea. I met some lovely Barbadian people when I was there, but sadly I do not think I would return in the very near future. The new prime minister has a long job ahead of her after the corruption of the last ten years. To be fair this has nothing to do with the property but I thought I would just provide a fair general picture of my stay over 3 weeks.
Beautiful resort with the friendliest staff
This was our second visit to the resort so we knew what to expect. Beautiful beach, adult only pool and also large pools that are family friendly. Several wonderful restaurants on the property but also 2 great spots just off the property and within walking distance: Cutters and Marco Polo. Booking through Julie was easy and safe. I would I definitely do it again. One thing to note, by booking thru a member, you are a guest of that member. As a member, Check out is 10am, as it’s noted on this site but if you book thru the hotel check out is noon.
The hotel is very accommodating to hold your bags and offer showers to change if you happen to have a later flight. This wasnt an issue, just something I think can be helpful to know. We will definitely be back!
Very good Place to stay!!!!
Very good place to stay and a exceptional service frow the owner!!!
The staff at the Crane were excellent and the beach is amazing. We have loved Barbados for many years.
The resort is beautiful and the staff is very helpful and kind! We loved the beach and breeze!
The resort and rooms are clean and well cared for. The only thing missing from this resort is a hot tub by the pool area. The grounds are so beautiful at night that sipping a rum punch with my feet in a warm hot tub would have been icing on the cake! Will recommend to all our friends.

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.
