We’ve just been out to see our latest client – the classic Caribbean hotel Cobblers Cove (www.cobblerscove.com). The hotel is small and has real charm and an old time feel that you don’t find in many hotels anymore. The bar and drawing room have the ambience of a plantation house.
The hotel has its own fisherman, Mr Barker, who delivers his catch to the kitchen daily and is eaten that night. The hotel is one of only five Relais and Chateau hotels in the Caribbean and the food is extremely good.
Guests staying at the hotel get one complimentary boat ride a day so we took advantage of this and hopped down the coast to Lonestar for lunch, saving on an expensive taxi fare. We also took the boat to swim with the turtles just ten minutes north of the hotel. They are pretty tame but it can be unnerving when they swim right up to you as they are big.
If you are going to Barbados you should check out the newest restaurant Cin Cin, which has a very sleek balcony overlooking the Caribbean and the new Limegrove cinema with waitress service to your seat.
