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.

Friendly service. Nice rooms. We had the 2 bedrooms and both rooms were spacious with their own bathroom. The food was good and the rum punch was outstanding! I would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Although this was a short stay trip (one night/ 2 days in-transit) we would definitely return for a longer stay. Due to covid19 restrictions we had to remain in our room/ private patio area for the first 12hrs of our stay, after that we just stayed in the room/ hotel grounds as they were so relaxing. The room was massive and room facilities were great. Huge bathroom and the in-room kitchen facilities would allow for you to make all meals in your room if so chose. We did room service due to our short stay and it was great. We were on the ground floor and the ocean view across the road was amazing! My wife and I will be returning with our daughter next time and will no doubt have a great stay at this hotel. All hotel staff we encountered (front desk/ room service etc etc), we really nice, welcoming and helpful. Read less

We loved the how intimate the property was, it was like our home in paradise. The staff were warm and very accommodating, especially the restaurant staff lead by a very friendly and professional manager, The food was excellent and on time every day we were there. There were a couple things that we felt could be improved: 1) the couch in our room was old and very unattractive, it should be replaced; 2) the front desk should be more explicit when making arrangements for guest, this ranges from arranging a taxi to making reservations for sailing, snorkeling, etc. We would prefer when arrangements are made the details should be provided in advance of the activity, so time, cost and logistics are perfectly clear; 3) Please upgrade the TVs to smart TVs, in the rooms so guest can stream and access Netflix, Hulu, and others. To be clear we had a blast and staying and the "Yellow Bird Hotel" was an important part of our enjoyable and relaxing trip to Barbados. Read less
