About Chuck Whitmore

We have traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean and have fallen in love with Barbados. We are celebrating our 25th visit to Barbados and our 25th wedding anniversary. We have owned a timeshare in Barbados since 1992 and watched the Historic Crane Hotel transform into a unique luxury resort that we currently enjoy. We now own 11 weeks and enjoy renting our unit to friends and family.

Chuck Whitmore purchased this resort in 2011

Why Chuck Whitmore chose Saint Philip

This resort is the oldest in Barbados, first opening in 1887. It is a blend of restored history and new buildings traditionally furnished with handmade mahogany reproduction antiques. The service and furnishing blow us away!

Spectacular views and accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for first time visitors! Crane Resort's amenities fit all of our needs. We did not need to rent a car and risk the novelty of driving on the opposite side of the road. The resort is a mini town containing restaurants, entertainment, swimming pools and beachfront activities. The quaint architecture, wide paved walkways, Koi ponds, and landscaping were captivating.

The only disappointments were the seaweed encrusted beaches at the beginning of our stay lack of barbecue grills for the guests, and the disappointing Wednesday Marketplace. Later in the week the seaweed problem was remedied when a bulldozer pushed the seaweed off the beach to allow for more convenient access to the water's edge.

Chuck Whitmore's villa was a comfortable haven in this tropical paradise. We would highly recommend a vacation in this lovely resort.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review! Glad that you enjoyed all that The Crane had to offer. I understand that the equipment needed to remove the seaweed from the beach is now operating and the resort has the manpower to keep it clean. The seaweed is a new but passing issue. Chuck and Vikki

Wonderful vacation, great resort...

  • 5 of 5

The only reason I can't give our holiday a 5 * review is the room/suite itself. I don't know how to remedy this but I would heartily suggest a THOROUGH room inspection before unpacking. We had some serious problems with the second a/c, non-flushing toilet, no-functioniong washing machine and iffy electric and there was no working elevator to our third floor rooms

We did, as suggested, call the manager and finally on day four all was rectified and graciously.

This place is stunning.

The staff is, to a person, friendly, happy and very well trained in C/S.

The food at the resort is world class. We ate at every restaurant at least once and ZEN saw us four out of 7 nights.

Although we did tour the island one day there is no need to ever leave this property.

It is stunning.


We both had wonderful massages in the spa

I do recommend booking those apps. in advance as they fill up quickly

Make sure you have an ocean view...It will transform you.

Owner's Response: We are glad that The Crane exceeded your expectations for the resort and all amenities! We understand that the Crane manager on duty, Mel Harding provided a wonderful dinner at the Zen to help offset the inconveniences experienced with the suite itself. Thank you for reporting all the wonderful reviews on the many restaurants, spa and the magnificent grounds with breathtaking views! We are very glad that all of the issues with the suite itself were responded to by the wonderful Crane staff and that a portable AC unit was installed in the "B" suite to make that area more comfortable for your stay. Thank you for your confirmation that the Ocean Views from the suite was transforming! The building has been renovated with a new elevator that is functioning very well now. We understand that the AC system in that suite has been overhauled for the comfort of the next visitor. We are looking forward to having you stay with us again very soon! Thanks for letting us know that you plan to return!
