Overview

Established in 1887, The Crane Resort All Suites in Christchurch holds the undisputed status of being the first resort in the Caribbean region. In fact, the remains of 17th and 18th century buildings have been beautifully integrated into the layout of this tropical paradise. The resort consists of themed properties such as the Marine Villa, Palmetto, Mount Pleasant and Residences in the Park. A duty-free shop is one of the many unique features you will find at this historic retreat. The main outdoor pool is made up of several lagoon-shaped basins that are interconnected by cascading waterfalls and steps.

off season issue

Would recommend Tue, Oct 20, 2015
The room was fantastic. The only issue we had was that we were at the Crane during off season and found that shops and restaurants had limited hours and no signage indicating that especially when certain restaurants were closed for several days.

Not at all what we expected from the best hotel on the island.

Would not recommend Fri, Oct 16, 2015
Our flight got in at 8:30 pm. We got to our hotel at 9:30 only to find that there was no restaurants open, couldn't order food from the bar, no room service, couldn't even get a bag of chips and a soda. No food petiod, unless we wanted to pay a cab to take us 15 minutes to the closest restaurant. The next morning it stated room service for breakfast started at 8am. I called at 8:02.....no answer. Called at 8:10....no answer. Finally called front desk that transferred me to restaurant. Ordered my food at 9:05 still no food. Called restaurant again. They said they lost it and it would be there in 15 minutes. Finally get at 9:35 it is delivered and it was missing 2 items from the continental breakfast. That was brought up by 9:45 and we weren't charged for the breakfast. We had 10 am meeting with concierge got there at 10:05 because our breakfast was way late only to find out no one in the concierge area knew about the 10 am meeting welcoming the guests and letting them know what was available to us. So around 10:20 two concierge people sat with us and basically just answered our questions about what we already knew. And this all happened within 13 hours of us getting to property....very very disappointed. So we asked why no places were open for us to order food once we arrived after our 3.5 hour flight. They said oh you came in on American. You should have ordered it before you got here and had it waiting in your room. Okay I emailed 4 different times and called 3 times before we got there about transportation from the airport to the property and it was never mentioned to us! We also spoke with 2 other couples that this happened to also and they were not happy either. Another issue was the availability of food. They have 4 restaurants on property, one closed for construction, one was only available if you were dressed to the nines, and the other 2 were hit and miss on when they were open. So we decided to go off property to eat the 3rd day we were there. We picked out the restaurant and asked concierge how long it would take to get there she didn't know she had to goggle it. Seriously this island is smaller than most major cities in the us and she didn't know how long it would take to get there?!? Once she had an answer she told us and we said okay we would like to go there. She just stared at us like okay so I asked if she would call to get us reservations and a cab. We told her we wanted to go now so she called the restaurant made the reservation and then looked at us like okay you have reservations...go. I said and the cab? She rolled her eyes and summoned a cab. Her job is to take of the people staying there and it was liking pulling teeth to get her to do her job. The best service we received while we were on the island was from the cab drivers. They were full of info and extremely friendly. I had a massage for my birthday and that was amazing. The night before we left we paid our extras billed to the room and set up for a cab to be waiting for us at 4:45 am so that we could catchat our 6am flight. We get to the office were they are going to pick is up and no cab. Security had to call him. Thankfully another cab was just waiting in the parking lot so we went with him. For being best resort on the island I was not impressed....hate to see what the second best was like.

Amazing Resort, October is great

Would recommend Tue, Oct 13, 2015
We got a ridiculous deal on a 1 bedroom ocean view room for a week. The place was huge, immaculate, and wonderful. The only complaint I had was that it's very far from everything else. But Crane beach made up for it in my opinion. Simply Stunning. They also should invest in hot tubs, the place was lacking because of it. And it was very quiet which is what we wanted, but it was very quiet. Pools were great, food was pretty good. Staff was overall nice but not super outgoing. No one says hi to you when you pass. But it's very nice. Much better than staying somewhere like the Hilton.

Most incredible experience

Would recommend Wed, Sep 16, 2015
The property at the Crane with its magnificent architecture, has a garden-like atmosphere, calming and serene from the moment you walk start your walk about the grounds and throughout. The bridges a part of this garden scenery, and the blue water beneath adds to its beauty and a spectacular reminiscence of a fairy tale. Its quite therapeutic indeed and certainly aids in relaxation. I can't say enough about the Crane, and Oh! I can't forget the fish pond filled with colourful fish. Staff at the Crane are very helpful and enthusiastic about helping guests whether its about finding directions or curiosity about the Crane, staff are very helpful to find answers, but are also friendly. Staff appears to truly enjoy their work here and their pleasant countenance suggests the same.

quiet and relaxing

Would recommend Tue, Sep 8, 2015
Stayed at the Crane with my wife on a trip with other family members. The Crane is a great Hotel although at the time i was there was still more construction going on, no workers during my stay. Its very large like a small town, some of the rooms have pools, which we did not get but in my 10 days there i only saw maybe 2 people use theirs. Plenty of restaurants to choose from but we ate many times at a small family restaurant down the street, walking distance, much cheaper and a different vibe. the negative is that the Crane is a good distance away from many of the happenings on the island and we rented a car at the start and on some days caught the city bus which was not a bad experience. Overall a great hotel for a romantic get away but if you want to enjoy the island scene then it is a bit far away. the beach at the Crane is also great.

Stayed for one night to catch a flight the next day - wish it could have been longer. The natural environment was fantastic, the man made facilities added the extra. A great place.

I have to say that staying at the Crane was such an awesome experience! I absolutely loved my 3BR Penthouse suite with plunge pool! It was so private and roomy and all my guests were very comfortable and felt at home. I definitely would recommend this hotel and this particular suite to anyone who is visiting Barbados. Spectacular view and amenities

Great family hotel!

Would recommend Sun, Aug 2, 2015
Great hotel and service. The grounds are well kept. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a rum punch. The rum punch was the best, started our trip just right. We stayed in the garden suite, love that area of the hotel. Was able to see the Barbados green monkeys everyday from our balcony.We were there in December so, we were able to hear the local school children sing Christmas songs at night in the square. What a great treat, the children were awesome.
