  • About this holiday

    Cobblers Cove Barbados is highly recommended by Expressions Holidays for those who want a luxury, boutique hotel, cosy and traditional, with the feel of a large house party yet where seclusion and privacy can be obtained. It is slightly set apart in the north of the west coast, yet you can reach the busier beach bars and beaches of the west coast by taxi very easily.
    "Even more lovely" Mrs V, May 2018

    Our opinion

    Cobblers Cove is a charming mix of traditional, sophisticated and cosy. This is a boutique beachfront hotel that attracts you from the moment you arrive. It is calm, secluded and offers a sanctuary in the tropics.

    Hotel description

    Cobblers Cove Barbados is one of those wonderful hotels that has an atmosphere of sophistication without being ostentatious. Combining cosiness and style, the atmosphere is of an English country house in an exotic climate. On a classically Caribbean palm-fringed beach of golden-white sand in a quiet spot to the north of the famous west coast, this Relais & Chateaux hotel consists of a charming pink-washed historic main house surrounded by the two-storey houses of suite accommodation. The main house is the focal point of the hotel with its breezy lounge of comfortable sofas and armchairs and an open-air bar that leads on to the terrace restaurant at the side of the beach. In the pretty gardens all around are tall coconut palms, flamboyant trees and flowering shrubs of frangipani and hibiscus, all of which attract the hummingbirds and banana quits. From the gardens there is direct access to the sandy beach, or you can relax by the swimming pool. The 40 suites, either ground-floor or first-floor, are spacious, charming and comfortable. Designed to blend into the beautiful gardens outside, the suites have a living room which opens onto the balcony or terrace, where comfortable loungers wait invitingly. A mini bar with fridge and kettle, dressing room, towelling robes and air-conditioned bedrooms add to your sense of wellbeing and comfort. The Colleton and the Camelot are two very luxurious suites with their own rooftop plunge pools located in the main building. The Terrace Restaurant with its tiled floor, wooden beams, palms and open walls is an elegant but relaxing venue for dinner. The cuisine enjoys an excellent reputation and offers interesting flavours based on an enticing combination of local fish, vegetables and fruits.
