“Yet again, an amazing stay!” Yet again our stay at The Crane and the Penthouse was beautifully relaxing and just what we needed.
We were amazed on our return that some of the staff in the Carriage house remembered us!

Holiday Apartment Suite with roof top pool, in the Crane Resort, Barbados.
Great for relaxing and as a base for exploring.
The resort is well situated away from the hustle and bustle of the west coast but within easy striking distance by car and public transport. The apartment itself benefited from the rooftop pool and balcony area (with shower) which provides privacy and breeze and drying area. Playing in the pool became a favourite past time activity for our son - often joined by us as a convenient way of cooling off. A short walk to reception and the rest of the complex provided ample opportunities to swim, sunbathe, drink and eat. The beach was maintained in a pristine manner and the views from above are breathtaking. The apartment was situated close to new development at the crane but work did not impinge on our enjoyment of the facility. It is an end-of-block apartment near to the car park and close to the lift and stairs, providing convenience and greater privacy with views across Barbados to the West. A well stocked supermarket is less than a ten minute ride in the car and it is cheaper than the resort shop but nothing is particularly cheap in Barbados!
The room was serviced well and the inventory had all that was needed. The dishwasher and large washer/dryer were especially useful. Unfortunately a number of items were missing, including the sofa bed that was for my son to use. On arrival, a normal sofa was there but following our request a change was made quickly and he had a bed to sleep in that night. One had the impression that items are moved around residences according to need. The kettle malfunctioned but that was dealt with in due course. There was sufficient of the inventory for our needs and for self catering for three of us but I did mention that items were missing before we left.
The provision of shower facilities with towels in the fitness centre was most helpful between having to leave the apartment and leaving for the airport, even though the water tended to trickle rather than gush out of the showers.
The staff were always courteous, friendly and helpful. A good place to be if you are willing to be a little laid back about life and go with the flow! …
