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.

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

We were able to buy a day pass for Cobblers Cove during our stay in Barbados. On arrival we were greeted at the desk by a delightful young lady who escorted us through the grounds to the beach front. The setting was beautiful and we felt we had walked onto a film set. During the day we dined in the restaurant and the food was very tasty and the staff very attentive. The day beds on the raised platform led directly onto the beach and were extremely comfortable. We understood that the hotel was closing later in the week for a few weeks for refurbishment work. We hope you don't change too much and have our fingers crossed that you keep the day pass offer for next summer when we are back on the island. Was unsure about writing this review as we didn't really want to share this amazing place we have found. Many thanks. Read less

What's good. Excellent watersports. Excellent beach. Very good restaurant. Many of the staff were very friendly - Will and Dean were both great. Really enjoyed mingling with the other guests. Not so great: Hotel needs some updating. Staff could be patchy at times - but Will mentioned that culture and training were still a work in progress. Will went on holiday during our stay (I'm sure well deserved) and standards did drop in his absence. Possibly staff feel under pressure to meet revenues targets - we had a dispute over the spa services / charges and it was initially handled very, very poorly. Mosquitos were a real problem throughout the stay and even after we told staff, their help was half hearted. In the end we had to see the doctor on the Island and then ended up in A&E in the UK. Conscierge services / information was patchy. Suggestion: Do a hand drawn map of the near local area: Mark on restaurants, supermarket, pharmacy, doctor and bus stops / taxi ranks. With approximate bus times and local taxi numbers. Means that guests can hit the ground running, rather than have to discover these things for themselves and potentially miss out during short stays.

If you are looking for a 5 star all inclusive “get me what I want any time” kind of place, go somewhere else.

Beautiful setting with lush gardens on the Platinum West Coast of Barbados. A gem from start to finish for the short staycation. Staff, Room, Food all wonderful. We can't wait to return! It was a haven tucked away on the most beautiful coastline.
