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 wife and I stayed at Yellow Bird while we quarantined in December. The accommodations were great and had a very nice view. The staff was fantastic and took care of booking and transportation for our 2nd Covid test. They actually took care of all of our needs and with a very friendly attitude. Would recommend this hotel very highly!!!

A huge thank you to all of the fantastic staff at the Yellow Bird hotel who all really looked after us during our quarantine and subsequent stay once we had the all clear. We cannot rate this fantastic, small hotel highly enough. A great spacious room, with magnificent views of the ocean and the turtles. It was a fantastic balcony - shaded in the morning and full sun in the afternoon to catch the (strong) rays. We even saw a green monkey one early morning, a green parrot and we both loved the sounds of nature all day and night. Everyday in quarantine we had room service deliver great food. We also took full advantage of the happy hours!! Well - we were in quarantine so why not?! The small kitchen was well equipped with everything you need and once you're free to be out and about there are amazing restaurants and great shops nearby. A few favourites include cafe sol, castaways, primo and harlequin. This is a fantastic choice for remote working as the WiFi is excellent. We honestly couldn't have asked for better and highly recommend it for quarantine and longer (we stayed for 10 nights). A special thank you to Michelle who arranged for our 2nd PCR test privately with Dr Jackson for $200 (expensive but worth it - bring cash!) and car hire. Sonia our great cleaner, Audley for the room / bar service and Peter the security guy... everyone else was excellent too. Thank you all so much. Highly recommended. Read less

From check-in to check-out the staff was great (my new best friends). My quarantine stay was great and i spent the next two week enjoying my stay.Needed reliable internet for work and Barry and staff worked to ensure I had reliable service from Monday for the 2 weeks stay. Every room has full kitchen as well as a view of the beach restaurants and bars stop music at 11 ish and this allowed for a great nights rest and relaxation. Took in the lovely warm Caribbean sea daily, breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the patio was a welcome bonus. No elevator and I was on the 4th floor and i got my exercise in but wasnt a fuss as the view awaiting me was AMAZING. Business / Solo trip Read less

All I can say it's like being at home Not a five star hotel but five star staff who make you feel wanted. Kindest staff I have ever met from the receptionist to the security and cleaners. Room service also excellent and only a short walk from brilliant beaches with a stunning view of the ocean from all rooms Thank you
