Very Good8.0
Beautiful and Historic Resort
Check-in took a while but, in their defense, I was early and they did give us an upgrade. Staff was professional and helpful. The resort is an old but beautiful location. They do need to do some upgrades since things are getting worn with age. The Zen restaurant was good but I wasn't impressed by the Italian restaurant. Also, I enjoyed the beach but it is somewhat difficult to reach and has a lot of debris present. The resort is very expensive but we knew that before going there.

The Crane Resort, Barbados (all)
We booked a week long vacation based on the hotel’s description as an all-inclusive. When we arrived we were given a vague and unclear explanation that, as of some time in November, the Crane no longer offers the all-inclusive option. We were told that we could pay an additional set fee per meal per day. We chose to pay for breakfast each day but the food was overpriced and mediocre at best so most days we skipped breakfast and bought food from the cafe. We also had several meals at the Carriage House, D’Onofrio’s and Zen and found the service and food to be good. Our first room was not well cleaned (stray hairs, dust and stained chairs) and a window was held closed with balled up toilet paper. The staff did offer us an upgrade to a similar room with an ocean view and small plunge pool. That room was in a nice location but the main shower didn’t work and appeared to have mold and water damage so we could only use the small shower in the second bathroom. The kitchen appliances and washer/dryer seemed quite worn and we had to fiddle with the dryer to keep it closed. Our children enjoyed the pool and the beach was beautiful and well-maintained. Overall, we had a very nice vacation inspite of some challenges with the hotel.
