Fantastic place to stay in the middle of 7 mile beach. The staff is great and the resort is in the jungle instead of the rest of the resorts on the beach that are all sand and palm trees . It is very authentic and the food is very good. The cottages are a bit rustic , but the management...

I have visited Whistling Bird 3 times since April 2016 and will be returning April 2017. To be honest I didn't want to let others know what a wonderful treasure I'd found. I researched for 6 months every possible location on 7 mile. When I found Whistling Bird, I knew my search was over. I'm not the all inclusive type....

The staff at the Whistling Bird are very attentive and friendly, the famous Jamaican hospitality is practiced here. The Chef is wonderful and we ate most of our meals at the resort.

The perfect spot for a relaxing vacation ... old time negril... natural and beautifully laid out. Beach had lots of shade if needed. Staff were lovely and all very welcoming. Perfect for kids of all ages due to the size of the property. Breakfast well worth it.. Rosie the masseuse based by the beach gives a great facial and massage....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beach cottages in a unique enclave. Totally immersed in nature, intensively landscaped. The cottages can be large or small, simple or deluxe. Whistling Bird offers amenities, several are unique. It's a small family business - an UNhotel, yet we have a pretty full slate of service to offer. We can do food and drink, a simple breakfast or dinner for example. What we really like to do is show off fine dining with our five course meal plan of refined Jamaican dishes. ... more   less

“Ask for a room with screens on the windows. it will be more comfortable than a room with closed windows and an a/c unit. Screens allow fresh air to come in without the mosquitos.”
