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.

Just when I thought the only cool Yellow Bird was on Sesame Street, I came to this lovely gem. During my quarantine stay at the Yellow Bird Hotel, I was first greeted by friendly staff (Big ups to the front desk staff and Akeem). The room was spacious and super comfortable and my view of St. Lawrence Bay was spectacular. Breakfast was included in which I must say, it was awesomesauce!!! Kudos to the chef, Ms. Alleyne and the staff of "On the Bay" restaurant. I enjoyed every meal especially the Flying Fish and the fresh selection of tropical fruits. I definitely would recommend checking out Yellow Bird hotel for your stay here on the island. Read less

My stay excellent. The hotel was clean: the room was large and clean; the staff was friendly and the food was good. I would highly recommend this hotel. It is conveniently located in relation to public transportation and walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The area was quiet and peaceful.

I loved everything about my stay. From the super helpful assistance as I planned and booked to the warm welcome upon my arrival, everything was perfect. I loved my room. The kitchenette was perfect, especially as I couldn't leave the room the first day until my test results arrived. Food was delicious. I'll have to make it a point to stay a few days at the Yellow Bird on each of my trips before heading to be with family. Read less

I stayed at the Yellow Bird for just over 3 months. The large rooms are great with everything you need...full size fridge, stove and oven etc. and look quite new.

The staff is so friendly and if there is a problem, they are in it straight away. The food at the restaurant is delicious and if brought to the room, fairly quick. I was there when a volcano at a nearby island erupted and the staff were constantly cleaning the property and rooms trying to minimize the ash everywhere and keeping us updated. I could not recommend the Yellow Bird more! Thanks for an amazing and stress free time! Read less

Given the Covid-19 situation it's understandable the hotel had to adhere to protocols but great room, wonderful service, quiet atmosphere and the best food ever. Room service was very prompt. Looking forward to a 3rd stay.
