Yellow Bird Hotel

Barbados, Caribbean

Virgin rating

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.

This was my second stay at The Yellow Bird and, again, it was wonderful. Its position in The Gap is ideal, opposite a small bay and within easy walking distance two beaches and all the restaurants. The rooms are large, with a nice kitchenette, comfortable beds and lovely balcony. Everything is exceptionally clean and the restaurant food and drinks are excellent and good value. But what really sets this place apart is the amazing staff. From reception, to housekeeping, restaurant and maintenance, they all go above and beyond to make your stay perfect. Special shout outs to Monique, Michelle, DeShaun, Sophia, CarolAnn and Anderson. Thank you for all of your help and care. If visiting Barbados, then this is the place to stay. Read less

Really nice small hotel with amazing water views. Staff at front desk are extremely accommodating and helped us with booking a car rental as well as a catamaran boat trip (which was great as well with Tiami). Thanks Monique and all for a great time. As others may have mentioned the hotel is near bars which can have loud music on busy nights. For us, Friday was the louder day. Not a big deal for us, but something to be aware of. The hotel does have a relationship with the bar and can ask to turn the music down :) Read less

The Yellow Bird Hotel is in a fantastic location and the hotel ticks all the required needs. From arrival to leaving the desk staff were friendly and couldn’t do more to help us. The room was spotless, spacious, and very comfortable with all the facilities from fridge, microwave, kettle iron etc. The bed was massive with memory pillows really comfy. 10 out of 10 for our room. We ate lots of meals in the restaurant, these where all very tasty with great service, they where a little on the expensive side, this is not down to the establishment but every meal we ate and all the items we bought from the shops is steep compared to the UK. The local bars and eating places where all in easy reach, from very good restaurants to the local Cabin style places, I would encourage you to go to them and eat with the locals, fantastic. There is a little downside, there is a bar close to the hotel that is crazy loud till 3 am you will need to drink large Rums to help you sleep. This didn’t bother most people, I read lots of reviews prior to going and all I would say is I am 65 years old and would not stop me going back. Thank you, Yellow Bird for a great stay. Read less
