We were able to buy a day pass for Cobblers Cove during our stay in Barbados. On arrival we were greeted at the desk by a delightful young lady who escorted us through the grounds to the beach front. The setting was beautiful and we felt we had walked onto a film set. During the day we dined in the restaurant and the food was very tasty and the staff very attentive. The day beds on the raised platform led directly onto the beach and were extremely comfortable. We understood that the hotel was closing later in the week for a few weeks for refurbishment work. We hope you don't change too much and have our fingers crossed that you keep the day pass offer for next summer when we are back on the island. Was unsure about writing this review as we didn't really want to share this amazing place we have found. Many thanks.
Very good restaurant.
Many of the staff were very friendly - Will and Dean were both great.
Really enjoyed mingling with the other guests.
Not so great:
Hotel needs some updating.
Staff could be patchy at times - but Will mentioned that culture and training were still a work in progress.
Will went on holiday during our stay (I'm sure well deserved) and standards did drop in his absence.
Possibly staff feel under pressure to meet revenues targets - we had a dispute over the spa services / charges and it was initially handled very, very poorly.
Mosquitos were a real problem throughout the stay and even after we told staff, their help was half hearted. In the end we had to see the doctor on the Island and then ended up in A&E in the UK.
Conscierge services / information was patchy.
Do a hand drawn map of the near local area: Mark on restaurants, supermarket, pharmacy, doctor and bus stops / taxi ranks. With approximate bus times and local taxi numbers. Means that guests can hit the ground running, rather than have to discover these things for themselves and potentially miss out during short stays.
