Cobblers Cove

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Attention to detail is unparalleled: something beautiful to see wherever you look, delicious food, warm and efficient staff. Highlight has to be having an old-fashioned Cobblers tea with homemade lemonade, scones and perfectly cut sandwiches, in a lush tropical garden while looking out at the bright blue ocean!

We stayed at half term for a week with the family and had two beautiful ocean view rooms with the most comfortable beds. The hotel is small and quaint. The children waterskied every day and swam with turtles. Thanks to Virgil we had quite a large bar bill but it was great sitting round the bar talking to all the lovely staff about the island. It's a family run hotel and the general manager was very helpful with any queries we had. I will stay there again and would highly recommend. It is a very special hotel.

Cobblers Cove is truly charming small hotel. The service it attentive without being obtrusive. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable and quiet. Many of the staff have worked at the hotel for decades. There is no better place to stay in Barbados if you are looking for refined charm.

I didn't imagine places like this still existed. It's rather like stepping into a Wodehouse novel. Sublime decor, very clubbable, intimate, the right side of exclusive, just short of snobby, utterly charming team running the place like clockwork. I was once told by someone wise to choose a school for my kids by looking at the parents. The same can be said for a hotel and it's guests. Everyone we met was charming, mannered and respectful of one-another and the people looking after them. I can totally understand why people return year after year. It is hard to imagine why you would want to go anywhere else. Unless you miss tattoos.

This is one of the most beautiful boutique hotels I have ever visited. The staff is exceptional, unobtrusive, but able to anticipate every need or whim. The rooms are large and soothing - I almost wanted to spend the day there - but the crystal ocean (with sea turtles!) and the lovely pool beckoned. The grounds are immaculate and afford each cottage privacy. And the food, oh the food! We met delightful guests to compare adventures with and suggest new ones. I will return as often as possible. Many many thanks.

Stayed here I in 1979 and 1980 - the place was just the same in my visit July'17. It is a truly lovely place. I was given a room overlooking the sea on this occasion, which was really nice, but in all honesty the boardrooms I stayed in during my other visits, were excellent.

We've been coming for twenty years. It's still privately owned and many staff members are still here. Recently refurbished - and v well done. About 25 rooms in two arcs around a beautiful tropical garden. A great fine dining restaurant. Afternoon tea. I wouldn't change a thing.

We recently had dinner at Cobblers Cove and although it was quiet this has to be one of my favorite restaurants in Barbados. The setting was excellent, the restaurant very quaint and the service was second to none> Very colonial and highly recommended!!

This is a lovely, small property with what I would call a colonial feel. Most of the clientele, myself included, tend to be older. If you are looking for a large resort with tons of activity, this may not be the place for you. However, if you want peace, quiet, and personal service in beautiful surroundings , I think you will be very happy here.

We found Cobblers Cove online whilst searching for hotels in the area, and we are very glad we chose to stay there! It was perfect in every way...we couldn't fault it. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was amazing, with a good selection to choose from. We had a lovely ocean view suite which was very modern and spotlessly clean. There was excellent snorkelling from the hotel beach, and we even managed to swim with sea turtles close to the hotel which was really special. We visited in the off peak season which was very nice as the hotel was quiet. We would highly recommend this homely, family run hotel.'s the best hotel we have ever stayed at.
