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.

Based on the photos. I expected a vintage styled glam version of Barbados. I was thinking marvelous Mrs Maisel. Instead I got to compare photos to actuality time and time again. The buildings are pink and the staff is nice. However the room descriptions are not 100% honest. Our partial ocean view suite consisted of leaving the patio (which faced the wall to the kitchen) then turning a hard left and standing on your toes. The suite portion was not air conditioned but rather just the bedroom was. The bathroom lacked ac as well. The living room was open with the option to close shutters. Think outdoor porch. No glass in windows etc.. Had I had a beautiful view and an ocean breeze I would not have minded as much however staring at the kitchen wall was not the romantic holiday I had planned or paid for. After spending 40 min trying to figure what hotel we could move to we called the front desk and were moved to a garden room where the suite was enclosed and air conditioned everywhere but the bathroom. The view was of the garden which is fine but once again not what I came there for or paid. I was not given a refund for the room difference even though the partial ocean view was more expensive. The beach.... there are no chairs on the beach as it is too narrow by the property. You could walk down the beach but no chairs. The water is crystal clear and warm and the sunsets are breathtaking. The pool had enough chairs and and 12 apprx of them overlooked the beach if you woke up and got chairs at 8am. Otherwise enjoy a chair by the pool. I struggled with this review as the staff were really nice but the bottom line is that I would hate for someone to go to Cobblers cove and have the wtf moment we had, but if you score a great deal just know what you are in for. We would not go back. Top tips for management: 1) unless you can view the ocean from the room it is not a partial ocean view. 2) disclose that some rooms, all areas are not air conditioned. 3) if a client downgrades because of the ac/view issue refund them the difference.

We stayed over Christmas and new year 2019 and had the time of our lives, making fabulous memories. The suites are superbly decorated and layed out with ample space and the beds were dreamy, slept so well! Housekeeping we're genres, fresh sheets and towels daily, what more could you ask for. We found all the staff to be professional friendly, very helpful to the point they could anticipate our needs- nothing was too much trouble. I have to say I've never had such comfortable sun loungers, infact I defy anyone to find better ones! The watersport's team were great and took us to swim with turtles, another must. Having travelled all over the world this place is without question in the top two, the other one being my own house! If your going to Barbados it is a must. Read less

Cobblers Cove is a fantastic hotel experience, that said it may not be everyone’s cup of ‘afternoon’ tea….. If you prefer to remain in a 5 Star bubble surrounded by perfection and soulless service, then there may be better options for you on the island. CC is far from soulless – it exudes personality. Whether it’s the water pistols on the breakfast table to discourage the birds or what can only be described as the comfiest (could they really be feather!??) pool loungers ever made. The staff were lovely and looked after our family’s every need. Bradley and the water sports team were excellent, patient teachers and my son finally managed to water-ski around the bay on day 3, much to everyone’s delight. Will Oakley is the GM and focuses his time on getting to know the guests unobtrusively – he has a fantastic ability to understand what makes them happy, whoever they are, and deliver accordingly. For us the personal touches at CC make it the perfect boutique hotel in Barbados. We will never forget our stay and can't wait to return. Read less

We stayed in a cottage at Gibbs Beach and visited Cobblers Cove on a number of occasions for drinks and a lovely evening meal - the food was delicious with excellent wines and impeccable service- the sunset view is in our opinion one of the best on the island. Absolutely perfect spot that will not disappoint
