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 had a wonderful stay at Cobblers Cove. The entire hotel grounds are perfectly decorated - everything is beautifully selected and placed. Everything is gorgeous and so photogenic.

We had a wonderful stay at Cobblers Cove. The entire hotel grounds are perfectly decorated - everything is beautifully selected and placed. Everything is gorgeous and so photogenic. The hotel doesn't have a massive beach, but there is a nice sand bar to directly enter the ocean/sea. They also have a boat (pink, of course) that you can request (free) boat rides on. We went snorkeling with turtles, which was definitely a highlight of the trip. Additionally, it was nice to be able to walk to Speightstown from the property within 10-15 minutes. The front desk staff were kind enough to book us a dinner reservation, as well as give us many other recommendations, which we really appreciated. At 30, we were definitely the youngest couple there, but overall, the vibe is very relaxed and easy-going. Would definitely recommend this for a relaxing week away. Read less

We had a wonderful stay at Cobblers cove, and didn't want to leave ! It is so beautiful right on the beach and our room overlooking the sea hidden in the gardens was second to none - the service is amazing - I can't wait to go back - I highly recommend it to everyone.

My partner and I decided to return to Cobblers Cove to celebrate his milestone birthday. We’d enjoyed a fantastic first experience in June when I celebrated mine. And this wonderful boutique hotel, dripping with sophistication and old-world charm certainly lived up to expectations this time around. The staff is professional, polite and friendly, starting with Joanna Roterberg, Cobblers' Cove most accommodating General Manager, who made us both feel special and appreciated on each occasion. Indeed, welcome cocktails at the bar and champagne on ice in our suite were a great way to start the festivities. Joanna and her team were central to making each birthday celebration a wonderfully relaxing experience… even accommodating our request to stay in the same elegantly designed suite as the first time. Featuring high ceilings and tastefully decorated with white rattan furniture, it is spacious, with a separate living room and bedroom and a balcony overlooking lush tropical gardens. Guests are treated to complimentary water sports and we certainly made the most of it. The boat trip along the coast was exhilarating and we thoroughly enjoyed swimming with the turtles, kayaking and snorkelling. And although we are both novices, we certainly had great fun trying our hand at water-skiing… much to the amusement of any bystanders, I’m sure. Cobblers Cove has established itself as a firm favourite with us and it is with absolute pleasure that we look forward to returning to this truly exceptional hotel. Read less

I recently returned from Cobblers having spent 8 nights there and it could not have been better. I've been to Cobblers before and was instantly welcomed by friendly faces. The pool and sun bed area has been refurbished and they've done a fantastic job. A lot of space for lying out and each pair of sub-beds now has a more private feeling surrounded by palm trees and flowers. The refurbished rooms are very smart and spacious with beautiful interiors and a large shower in the bathroom. The view from the restaurant as you enjoy the many delicious meals is again fantastic and the quick access into the warm sea and a swim to the pontoon is ideal. A favorite place of mine and somewhere I will certainly go back to. Read less
