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.

My wife and I recently had a very nice stay at Cobblers Cove and we would agree with the overall characterization of the hotel by many of the reviews here. The hotel aims for a low key and personalized experience and in many ways it delivers. That said, there were a few elements of the hotel that didn't work for us and we thought this would be worth pointing out for travelers considering this property. Our room was a ground floor garden suite, very spacious and nicely furnished in a comfortable traditional English style. We would have enjoyed it more though if the windows had glass and screens. The windows have shutters with louvers that can be opened. Unfortunately because there is no glass, we couldn't have the shutters or louvers open to get some natural daylight if we also wanted to run the air conditioning. It was one or the other. Having an actual glass window would have also mitigated the noise from the leaf blower outside our window early Sunday morning., Consequently our bedroom felt a bit cave-like and we had to turn on the lights whenever we were in the room. Also since there are no screens, we weren't comfortable opening the louvers at night since dengue is present in Barbados. I get it that this is a traditional style in Barbados but we found it annoying. We were also surprised that the rooms do not have TV's and that we could have one put in the room for an extra daily fee. We don't expect people to come to Barbados to watch TV but at this price point it shouldn't be an extra. The hotel should consider providing multi-outlet USB chargers in the rooms so that guests don't have to search for electrical outlets to charge phones, tablets, etc. It would also be nice to have a Bluetooth speaker so that guests could stream music from their phones. The wi-fi service was generally OK but weak at the gym. We found the restaurant service to be the hotel's real weak point. The food was very good and the staff were friendly and generally well-intentioned, but often inept and clueless. We had a few dinners and all of our breakfasts at the hotel and at no time did any server ask if everything was OK with our order after it was served. It only takes a moment, why is that so hard to do? We realize that Cobblers Cove has many devoted and repeat visitors and we don't expect the hotel to change what clearly is a winning formula for them, but we thought our experience was worth sharing.

Cobblers Cove is just delightful! Not a large bustling place, they offer attention to detail. Our room was very comfortable indeed and imaculately clean. The breakfast was presented beautifully and tasted delicious. The coffee was spot on! The beach is lovely and the entrance to the sea is clear and easy. Pool service was very welcoming. We would certainly recommend. Read less

We had one night here to Quarantine while awaiting our PCR results. The hotel is gorgeous and the staff were lovely. I just love the aesthetic of the hotel, old fashioned chic. The rooms are huge, there is a separate sitting room and great small kitchen area. The sun loungers are the most comfortable I have ever sat on. The actual beach area is quite small but beautiful. The PCR result was back by 7pm. As a fully vaccinated traveller I was able to go to the pool and restaurant. The only restricted area is the beach and of course you are not allowed to leave the hotel. Once you get your result and email it to reception you are free to go anywhere on the island. Read less
