Cobblers Cove Barbados

Barbados, Caribbean

The hotel

An aura of understated class pervades this charming hotel hideaway, with many of its guests returning every year for an authentic Barbados experience. The attractive, colonial-style building with its iconic, coral-coloured Great House, vibrant tropical gardens and lovely rattan furnishings, overlooks a white-sand beach on Barbados's west coast. Pleasantly secluded, you are still only a short drive from some lovely restaurants and bars — that's if you can drag yourself away from the gourmet wonders of award-winning Camelot Restaurant which offers mouth-watering cuisine, weekly barbeques and a special seafood menu including a selection of freshly-caught local fish. There's a generous array of sports, which include tennis and complimentary daily lessons in water-skiing, sailing and windsurfing for each guest. The spacious suites are beautifully furnished and are packed with amenities. Each has its own balcony or terrace, dressing area and large bathroom filled with REN soaps and toiletries.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 night stay here and will definitely return next time we go to Barbados. Our room was lovely and spacious with a large sitting area with fully opening shutters, a small kitchenette and small private garden with loungers which opened onto the main decking area and beach/pool. The air conditioning in the bedroom was very effective. It was particularly hot during our stay and it was so nice to be able sit in the shade and still look out to the sea. With reference to a previous one star review by a guest, we found that there were more loungers than guests so there was absolutely no need to reserve one as there were always plenty available. Food and service was excellent and we didn’t feel the need to eat elsewhere in the evenings as we doubt the food could have been bettered. We felt that the snack menu at lunch could have had more choice as we found everything was either too large or too small. Afternoon tea and the cocktail party was much appreciated! Swimming and snorkelling from the beach next to the hotel was excellent, with several patches of coral and colourful fish, and we regularly saw turtles on the small man-made reef off the beach. The complimentary private boat trip up the coast to see turtles fed was a lovely touch. As we mostly go to Barbados for swimming in the warm sea, we do feel that it’s a shame that there does not appear to be any rules for jet skis or speed boats and it seems that this is an accident waiting to happen. It would be fairly easy to introduce lanes and a 5 knot buoy system as in the UK so that you can swim safely without the fear of an out-of-control jet-skier running into you. You do need to take a float with you if you plan to snorkel any distance off shore. Overall we had a great holiday and would thoroughly recommend Cobblers Cove. Read less

We loved Cobblers Cove right from the start. Excellent room, great food, intimate hotel where you get to chat to the manager on the regular ‘Managers Cocktail evening’. The service was very good and water sports are provided at no extra cost. Swimming from the hotel beach was lovely. Don’t really have any criticisms at all and only good memories.

My wife and I traveled back to Cobblers Cove to celebrate our 30-year wedding anniversary -- we spent our honeymoon at Cobblers Cove in May 1989. Our return trip did not disappoint, and it was everything we thought it would be and more. We noticed the property had changed over the years with many improvements including beautifully upgraded suites, a new pool deck, and expanded lush, well-maintained tropical gardens. Cobblers Cove is an exceptional quaint, small hotel that offers excellent food, relaxation and attentive service. One person in particular, the bartender Virgil Wood, is excellent. He is kind, courteous and made amazing cocktails with an attention to detail. I highly recommend Cobblers Cove to anyone who wants a quiet, relaxing experience filled with great food and service. Based on our experience, my wife and I have decided that we would like to return more often and regret having waited 30 years to do so. Read less

This is the first time I have reviewed a hotel on trip advisor, after years of using the site to help pick holidays. My inspiration is the incredible Cobblers Cove hotel, which, after years of travelling, my wife and I agree is the best place we have ever stayed. From the moment we arrived, and were greeted by Will, the excellent hotel manager, to the day we left (reluctantly), we could not have dreamed of a more pampered stay! The hotel, rooms and gardens are beautiful and extremely well maintained. We began our stay in an ocean front suite, which was roomy, very clean, had an incredible view of the Caribbean blue sea, and had lots of thoughtful touches including comfortable bathrobes, delicious coffee, with fresh milk every day, more fresh, fluffy towels than you needed, and even candles to help enjoy a romantic evening on the patio. Sun loungers. Never a problem finding spaces. If you want sun or shade, the staff are happy to move furniture for you. The loungers are the best we have ever laid on, with the deepest cushions you could ever want, and the staff take care of you with cold water, sorbets, and fruit kebabs. Excellent! Food. My wife and I are very fussy when eating out, and are often disappointed with bland food on holidays. No such problems here. The food is a very high standard, fresh and delicious. From breakfast to dinner, there is a vast choice, all presented beautifully and without doubt, the best we have ever had in our many visits to the Caribbean. Staff. Friendly, helpful and always happy to help. I have a terrible memory for names, so can’t mention all, but Demanta deserves a special thanks for bringing us an amazing last night dinner to our room. And what a room..... When we booked we were told that our sea front room was only available for five nights, and our last two would be in a partial sea view room, which was fine as all accommodations looked lovely. On the day to change, we were shown to our new room, only to find that they had upgraded us to the penthouse suite as it was available for the end of our stay! What a room!!! Not only was it bigger than our house, but it was gorgeous with a 180 degree sea view, huge patio and private pool!! We cancelled the next days excursions, and lived like royalty instead!! A HUGE thank you to everyone at Cobblers Cove for an unforgettable stay. We will be back, and we would heartily recommend a visit to anyone. Read less

This probably is one of our best holidays ever. Cannot fault anything from arrival to departure. The staff are really lovely and very well presented at all times. The accommodation was perfect - rooms kept immaculate. Linen and towels of best quality and spotless. The food was just amazing. A huge selection for breakfast with everything you could possibly want (even champagne!) The evening meals were fantastic and enjoyed every one during our 10 night stay. Enjoyed drinks by the pool along with complementary refreshments including sorbet, iced lemon water at all times and fruit on sticks. The beach in front of the hotel is gorgeous and we didn't feel the need to look elsewhere for a better one. The tropical gardens surrounding the hotel are wonderful. All in all we can't praise it highly enough and definitely hope to return next year. Thanks to all at the amazing Cobblers Cove - we'll be back! Read less
