Please note that the resort is continuing its ongoing multi-million dollar expansion and as a result there will be work within the Residences in the Park causing intermittnet noise between 9:00 am to 5:30 pm. No public areas are affected.
Crane Beach has been affected by large deposits of brown seaweed, called Sargassum and is affecting the entire South coast of Barbados. In efforts to ensure our guests are as comfortable as possible we have implemented several measures to lessen the impact.
Guests are offered a complimentary beach shuttle service to an alternate beach when they are significant deposits of seaweed on our beach.
Seaweed is cleared from beach by a small tractor daily in the morning before the majority of guests are on the beach. We cannot predict when the seaweed will appear or disappear however we will continue to work assiduously to control it.
