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 best friend and I just got back from Barbados a few days ago and we spent 5 days at Yellow Bird. From the minute we stepped foot in the hotel, everything was great! We arrived a little early before check in time but our room was ready so we did not have to wait. We had room 601, 2 bedroom with roof top deck. I highly recommend this room. It overlooks the bay and it's so relaxing to have a cup of coffee in the morning. It's at the beginning of the Gap and within walking distance to many things. There are a few markets you can go to and we also walked to the supermarket (Tri-Mart) which was about 10 min away. Front desk staff (especially Nicholas) was very helpful with directions, suggestions for restaurants/bars and excursions. we did a catamaran cruise the day before we left and it was the best. Swam with some turtles, saw a shipwreck and had lunch. The hotel is close by to a few beaches and 15-20 min away from the Boatyard. We did not get a chance to go there but it looks like alot of fun. If you want a relaxing vacation, definitely check out the Yellow Bird. You will not be disappointed! Read less

We returned from Yellow Bird Hotel last week, all I can say is what a fabulous place. The food is amazing the staff are so friendly and it’s in a great location right at the start of St Lawerence Gap. Close enough to enjoy the nightlife but not right in the heart so you can get a good nights sleep. It was our 30th anniversary while we were… Read more
We returned from Yellow Bird Hotel last week, all I can say is what a fabulous place.

Close enough to enjoy the nightlife but not right in the heart so you can get a good nights sleep. It was our 30th anniversary while we were there and they made us a beautiful breakfast and made a big fuss of us which was lovely. I will definitely be returning. Read less

Our stay in Barbados started at Sandals but since we were told what a safe island Barbados is, we decided to extend our trip and do a couple nights off the resort at the end of our stay there. After much research, I chose the Yellow Bird based on reviews and location. I was pleasantly surprised by how close we were to virtually anything we wanted to do (restaurants, bars, clubs, shopping). The view from the room was AMAZING. The balcony was a great size but in order to enjoy it you had to turn the A/C in your room off because the unit blew hot air on this patio. Not a big deal. Bathrooms were updated but bed was very uncomfortable. Also note, this hotel doesn't have an elevator. We were on the top floor (4th floor). I knew this going in though and figured I needed the exercise. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful when we arrived. The hotel also has an on-site restaurant that is nice and overlooks the pool and bay. Has a couple different happy hours and the rum punch is great. We sat at the bar one day chatting with Cherry-Ann the bartender who was a delight to speak with. It is people like her that make us want to return as soon as we can. The food, drinks, and views at every restaurant within walking distance were outstanding! Thank you for an amazing stay in Barbados, we plan to return to the Yellow Bird soon! Read less

Impressive hotel! Every staff member that I encountered is courteous, friendly, hospitable, and professional, and I interacted with staff members of every position. The ENTIRE hotel is maintained in pristine condition. My room was clean, comfortable, tranquil, and serene. The color scheme of the property is perfect. It is situated in an ideal location. There is access to a nice beach and public transportation. The view was excellent. All views are Ocean view. There is accessibility to many restaurants. However, the hotel restaurant makes great dishes. Every meal that I ate from the hotel restaurant was delicious. Hot meals were served HOT and cold meals COLD. This hotel is great for classes of guests (i.e. Solo, couples, family, etc.). Read less
