Yellow Bird Hotel

Barbados, Caribbean

The hotel

This chic hotel is reputed to have some of the friendliest staff on the island! It's also located across the road from St. Lawrence Bay where the waters are exceptionally shallow at low tide — enabling you to safely walk miles into the ocean (you might see some turtles along the way!). There’s a lovely restaurant on-site or you can head round the corner to the centre of St. Lawrence Gap for some lively nightlife. Refurbished studio rooms have large balconies offering stunning views, a kitchenette and complimentary WiFi.

My husband and I spent seven nights at the Yellow Bird Hotel and we were quite pleased with our stay. Our room was spacious, well kept, and had a stunning view of the ocean. The hotel staff (Monique, Michelle, Barry) were very helpful when it came to organizing activities, answering questions, and just making sure that our stay was awesome--and that it was! The hotel staff were even helpful before we arrived; we needed tickets to a New Year's event on the island, and they reached out to the venue and was able to send us secure links to purchase our tickets. We would definitely stay here again. Read less

Great boutique hotel in the Gap. Nice pool but never used because across small street from beach. Great staff, Monique. Great pubs and restaurants. Area could be noisy, especially New Year’s Eve but didn’t bother us

We had such a pleasant time at the Yellow Bird Hotel. We had two rooms, one on the first floor with a balcony that led out to the pool and one on the second floor with its own balcony. Every day, at any time of the day was a stunning view of ocean. We loved the small boutique feel of the hotel. It was very quiet, but also offered conveniences of a pool, bar and full-service restaurant. Every staff member that we encountered at any time was fantastic. The front desk staff, the pool staff, the wait staff, the maids- no one could have been nicer. They even left us a card (signed by the entire staff), rum and cupcakes on Christmas! What a nice little touch. The rooms were clean. The linens were changed every other day. There were plenty of American outlets for all our devices. There was plenty of sitting area. The shower always had hot water. We didn’t really take advantage of the full-size kitchen, but the large refrigerator was nice. We went to the grocery store at the beginning of the week and it was nice to have room for a 24 pack of water. I literally don’t have a bad thing to say about the Yellow Bird. Thank you for a great Christmas vacation! The location was perfect- there was numerous bars and restaurants within walking distance. There wasn’t anything that we needed that we couldn’t walk to. Our favorite thing we did was to take a bike tour of the island from Randy with Bike Caribbean. I highly recommend that too! Read less
