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.

Cobblers Cove never disappoints - from the welcome back through to the cheerful rally of all staff to ensure an uninterrupted experience of top drawer service amidst a surprise storm! The beauty and cleanliness of this charming resort is a tribute to its caring staff. The food was spectacular in taste, presentation and profile of local ingredients. An early morning swim in the Caribbean Sea was the perfect way to start each day. We can’t wait to plan our next visit, a tradition we’ve enjoyed for over a decade! Read less

We have been lucky enough to visit Cobblers a couple of times now and we love it. The suites whether situated with an ocean view or overlooking the garden are lovely. The food delicious. Service and cleanliness can't fault. Staff very friendly and helpful. Feels like home from home.

Stayed for one week. Never been to Barbados before and would definitely go again and stay again at Cobblers Cove. I really couldn't fault it. Beautiful with excellent service whilst at the same time having a relaxed atmosphere. Very good food and excellent water sports.

From the moment we got off the plane we knew we had made the right choice. We opted for the airport pickup and were greeted at the doors by a gentleman who filled out our customs forms and then skipped us past 400+ people to the front of the line! My wife immediately told me "this is gonna be good." This was our first time doing the all inclusive resort type thing. We liked it because we actually didn't have to do "full" inclusive and just did the food package and paid a la carte for drinks. (My wife was pregnant so we didn't think the drink package would be worth the money) We picked Cobblers Cove primarily because of the restaurant and it did not disappoint! The Sea Cat (octopus), barracuda, and Lobster were among our favorites. During our 6 days we didn't have a bad meal and one of the nicest perks was being able to have any meal in our room on our balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea. We even went by boat and had a picnic lunch on another beach one day! It was my first picnic to have lobster and fillet. :) The resort is small, but it had everything we needed and wanted. It doesn't have a few amenities like beach volleyball, but we loved it for exactly these reasons! We were greeted by the manager upon arrival, the staff knew our names, and even anticipated our different drink orders at different times of the day. I don't think we would have received the same level of service and care at a larger resort. Besides the service and food and drink, the beach and pool and watersports were all amazing. The water is a lovely turquoise and you can do great snorkeling right there 5 feet off the shore. We went every morning to check out snorkel gear from watersports. I skiied, we swam with turtles, we boated to other beaches, and enjoyed a couple boat ride tours as well. This beach was different in that we didn't lie on towels on the sand, but we laid on incredibly comfortable beach chairs on the pool deck overlooking the beach 5 feet away. The pool chairs pretty much had memory foam mattresses on them and it will be hard to go back to laying on a towel on the sand. Each pair of chairs had a huge umbrella that could be easily adjusted to shade both of us easily. The only bad part of the trip was leaving and we're trying to figure out how soon we can come back! PS -We had read bugs could be an issue, but we didn't have a single bug bite and never saw any in our room. The only times we saw bugs were in the garden. Thank you, Cobblers Cove, for an absolutely wonderful stay! Read less

This is a small, family owned hotel, with the feel of a pampered retreat. Dean was an excellent host when we arrived, making us extremely welcome. The rooms are very comfortable (lovely linen) with everything you need (including effective and non-smelly mosquito spray), although there were no issues with mosquitos whilst we were there, one of the rare occasions we’ve been away without getting bitten. We loved the treats left with the turn down service. The food really is very good, we went to The Cliff one evening but thought the food at Cobblers was better! A big thank you to Dee and the rest of the restaurant staff for such friendly, great service. Enjoyed all our meals, the Sunday buffet and Island Night are excellent. Thanks also to the bar staff for all the delicious cocktails! Another big thank you to the water sport team, my son Matt was soon waterskiing with confidence, thanks to excellent tuition! We also really enjoyed swimming with the turtles and paddle boarding. The gardens are beautiful, especially when lit at night, very, very pretty. We hired a car whilst there, there are many places to visit and driving is easy, especially if you are from the UK! So thanks again to the team who make Cobblers such a lovely, friendly, well run hotel, we hope we will return soon! Read less
