As the recession continues to bite, holidaymakers are increasingly looking to make their money go further. The Crane Residential Resort in Barbados has tapped into this emerging trend with the introduction of an all-inclusive dining option for its patrons.

However, unlike traditional all-inclusive packages, guests taking advantage of this new offering will not be required to stand and queue for mediocre buffets as the dining options are a la carte with dishes lovingly created by the hotel's top chefs and made using only the freshest ingredients.

The all-inclusive dining plan guarantees guests a relaxing holiday worry-free of the final bill upon checkout and safe in the knowledge that they will enjoy the very finest cuisine Barbados has to offer at three of The Crane's four world-class restaurants.

Guests can take their pick from the resort's L'Azure Restaurant which specialises in fresh seafood and offers panoramic sea views and outdoor seating; D'Onofrio's Trattoria, an Italian restaurant offering a wide choice of pizzas and pastas, making it a popular choice for guests with young children or The Carriage House, a poolside restaurant that serves light meals in a casual atmosphere. Premium Alcohol, tropical cocktails, wines by the glass and non alcoholic beverages are on offer whilst dining at our restaurants or at Bar 1887.

In between meals, guests with a sweet tooth can indulge themselves at The Village Café - a celebration of all things sweet, the café is a wonderland for both the young and young-at-heart serving specialty coffees and sinful treats.

Set on the world-famous Crane Beach, overlooking a perfect azure blue sea, The Crane is the oldest operating hotel in the Caribbean. Built in 1887 and fully restored and expanded in the 20th century, this truly unique property combines elegance, old-world charm and incredible natural beauty with a romantic sense of seclusion.

With 252 luxuriously appointed residences and suites, The Crane offers unparalleled levels of service and spacious accommodation with private pools, gardens and ocean views. The resort also boasts a spa, cascading outdoor swimming pools and duty free retail shopping at the Crane village.

The Crane's all-inclusive dining package is available now and bookable directly with the hotel or through tour operators.
