Pastel pink, country house-style sleep set along the beach on Barbados’ west coast
Tropical English elegance. Hummingbirds flit around the palms and bougainvillea at the entrance to this pretty pink and white Caribbean sleep. The decor of the ground floor sitting room in the main house is akin to what you might find in a friend’s country house, with comfy blue and white patterned sofas where guests can sit and play chess or curl up with a good book. Attentive service from staffers (many of whom have been at Cobblers Cove for over 25 years) adds to the homey vibe.
Bed and Bath
The 40 suites, scattered around the three acres of grounds, are full of homespun charm. Cobblers Garden Suites and Ocean View Suites feel like little apartments, with terraces leading to whitewalled lounges filled with rattan furniture (including a sofabed, ideal for families), a counter for preparing tea and coffee, and a simple bedroom at the back with a kingsize bed. Oceanfront Suites have a similar layout but get more sunlight and are a coconut’s throw from the beach. The two top suites, Colleton at the Great House and Camelot at the Great House, lie in the main house and include four-poster beds, rooftop plunge pools and chic interiors (think writing desks and chaise longues) by Prue Lane Fox.
Cross the palm-lined lawns to reach the freshwater oceanfront pool, tennis court and sweet little spa, which features a full range of treatments with Pevonia products. Free afternoon tea is served between 4 and 5 p.m., and guests gather at the intimate cocktail bar for sundowners and free canapés before hitting Camelot Restaurant at Cobblers Cove — you can join local fisherman Barker on an early morning boat trip to catch your own supper. A daily 15-minute waterskiing session included in the room price works off the excess pounds.
How to Get There
If you are looking for a 5 star all inclusive “get me what I want any time” kind of place, go somewhere else. What this hotel offers is special atmosphere, beautiful garden, huge rooms, excellent food and service, quiet and idle setting around the pool, beautiful and clean beach. This is a boutique place and still quite luxury. The tennis courts were super cool too.
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.
Just back from Cobblers Cove after the fifth consecutive year, which already tells you something!
This really is a wonderful place, and due in no small part to the deft stewardship of Will Oakley. The staff, many of whom have been working at the hotel for quite some time are charming, patient and extremely helpful.
If you're looking for a classy, discreet and elegant hotel with good food, great interiors and a stunning garden, look no further.
Can't wait to return next year.....!
Forget all the rest, this is the place to stay. British Colonial Caribbean elegance. I felt like I came out of a Somerset Maughn novel. Pack a lot of outfits, can change 3 times a day and dress to impress! This is not the place if you want to party and get loud.
I visited the property over the July 1st Canada Day weekend with a friend to relax and recharge.
Cobblers Cove didn’t disappoint and the customer service, food, ambiance and relaxed experience was exactly as expected.
For those that enjoy an old school charm - this property is for you.
For those millennials that want a quiet getaway at the most instagrammable hotel in Barbados - this is it!
Recommended room: Ground Floor Ocean front suite - named the “skeets” room. Best view and location.
Details that really made the difference: In room wet bar and sitting area for cocktails. The custom pattern bone China. The high quality food at the restaurant. The high tea service.
I will definitely be back!
