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.

Delicious food in a glorious setting. Allow yourself time to settle in and enjoy the ambience. This is a languid tropical experience of old school glamor. The menu is fairly extensive and each dish is presented with flair. Waiters are charming and attentive. There is an excellent vegetarian menu. Wine list is good. I enjoyed the smart uniforms,… Read more
Delicious food in a glorious setting. Allow yourself time to settle in and enjoy the ambience. This is a languid tropical experience of old school glamor. The menu is fairly extensive and each dish is presented with flair. Waiters are charming and attentive. There is an excellent vegetarian menu. Wine list is good. I enjoyed the smart uniforms, comfortable rattan chairs set among tropical plants overlooking a coral reef. Children are cared for but this is essentially an adult experience. Read less

I genuinely could not stop laughing for the first 24 hours as I was in shocked disbelief that such a magical place could exist. This is the desert island dream come true, except it comes with a world class kitchen, staff and bar. The sunny Caribbean sea, the cool breeze, the palm trees, the wonderful atmosphere, the smiling people. Timeless elegance, glamour and charm, yet a totally relaxed and unfussy feel. This truly is the good life. Of course, such a life is not complete without impeccable cocktails by Pearson the barman, concocted in a silver cocktail shaker in front of you as you inhale the Barbados air, listen to the rhythm of the tree frogs and admire the sunset. The staff are brilliant and truly try hard to please and look after their guests (who, by the way, are all smiling in content wonder as a result). The food is exquisite - smoked flying fish for breakfast with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice a particular favourite, and well earned after a morning swim in the clear blue waters. Water-skiing, swimming with turtles, a fishing trip... the magnificent Cobblers staff can arrange anything you ask for. And the supremely talented chef will then turn your prize catch into a mouthwatering lunch to be shared with your friends. One other useful thing to note is that quarantining at the hotel (mandatory in line with government rules) is about as delightful as quarantine can be. Plenty of quarantine areas beyond your rooms where you can eat, drink and relax. In fact you'd happily test positive. Indeed, I almost wish I had on my last day so that I couldn't leave. Cobblers Cove is one of those incredibly rare places that is able to suspend reality. It is impossible to worry about anything here and I cannot recommend it more highly. Magnificent hotel with magnificent staff. Every little thing is going to be alright. Read less

Overall we had a wonderful stay. The team was very accommodating and not intrusive at all although friendly and chatty. Cobblers is a gorgeous, small boutique hotel, quietly set on the stunning platinum coast line with a beautiful pink main building, bedrooms set in a lovely garden and views over the lapping water. Sunbathing by the pool, with the warm calm sea right next to you is the biggest treat. The check in and reception team were lovely and our room (garden view) was perfect for us. We had to quarantine for 48 hours on arrival, but this was managed well and there were separate areas for guests in quarantine or after testing. We really enjoyed the water sports on offer and went paddle boarding, snorkelling and swimming with turtles- incredible. The restaurant looks over the water which is a real treat, the breakfasts were good, they occasionally missed things from our order or things weren’t available but nothing to much. We only had one dinner in the restaurant, on island night, where the service was great and the food was delicious. Our only real gripe about the food was the cost of the sides on the bar menu- it was 2 sides for 1 fixed price, but if you only ordered one side you were still charged for two- this seems silly but once we knew we just ordered two. It might be worth the bar staff mentioning this when taking an order and offering a second if only one is requested. All in all we loved our stay, all the staff were really friendly and made an effort with the guests. Clearly guests are needed on this beautiful island but although it was quieter than it normally would be, it was a wonderful stay, thank you! Read less

For the discriminating, the spoiled, the discerning and the travelled this hotel is a shining star. It’s hard up against the ocean with a coral break that discourages all hawkers. The privacy and tranquility is made completely by elaborate tropical fern planters and emplacements and ultra high end recliners allow to relax while enjoying the birdsong and waves with no music. Management clearly gets it in every way with thoughtful design touches enhancing basic “ Barbados Beach House” sensibilities with well chosen triple weight towels, ultra comfortable beds and pillows, high end linens with the best light robes I’ve ever seen. Super friendly welcome at the front desk gave way to thoughtful service at the restaurant and pool. This hotel is a gem and I am a grateful current guest. Read less
