Cobblers Cove

Cobblers Cove is an elegant, classic hotel designed to feel like an English country house set on the northwest coast of Barbados and is one of the Caribbean's best-loved hotels. The 40 air-conditioned Suites are either Garden or Ocean View and have their own living areas with a patio or balcony, attractively combining rattan furnishings, cool terracotta tiles and soft cottons. Two further exclusive Suites have their own roof terrace with private plunge pool and uninterrupted sea views. Facilities include a pool, gymnasium, tennis court and spa.

The hotels Camelot Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, perched on the edge of the Caribbean Sea. The focus here is on locally sourced ingredients and freshly caught fish which the chef uses to create seasonal island specialities.

In addition to the hotel’s own facilities, you are also able to enjoy a host of complimentary activities including waterskiing, hobie cat sailing, kayaking and exploring the house reef. For keen seafarers, why not head out with the hotel's long-serving fisherman in search of the day's catch.
