The staff there is absolutely the best! Shannon seriously made our trip so much better! The rooms themselves are nice size with good amenities. The sheets and blankets though are seriously rough. They felt like sandpaper and after a day at the beach where we got a little pink, none of us slept very well. The hotel has a restaurant...

They had plenty of recommendations for places to eat, get groceries, excursions and most importantly how to get around and use the transit in Barbados. Gorgeous ocean views, comfortable modern room.

All the staff at Yellow Bird Hotel are amazing!!! They are super nice and so helpful. Location is perfect!! Rooms were great. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others and will use for any return visit myself. If I had to recommend any improvements I would say more comfortable pull out sofa beds and softer sheets/towels.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite located in the adjacent free standing building. We were on street level. Nice porch/balcony; great sea views. Super quiet bedrooms as they were positioned toward the rear of the suite; great A/C. 2 updated bathrooms and a kitchenette. Super friendly and helpful staff. Loved being able to walk to restaurants & bars!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Yellow Bird is an award-winning newly renovated boutique hotel in St. Lawrence Gap, Barbados, 7 km from the airport and 10 km from Bridgetown. This 22 room hotel underwent a US $1.25 million renovation in 2015, including a total facelift to all guest rooms, the building's exterior, lobby & reception, public rest rooms and restaurant. Our fabulous location also known as "The Gap", is home to a collection of fine restaurants, clubs and bars. In the midst of it all, you'll find several street-side "chefs" grilling up anything from burgers to local favourites such as local fish, macaroni pie and other mouth-watering treats to tantalize your taste buds! During the day, you can choose between Sandy Beach, only two minutes away or the larger, more popular Dover Beach, a mere 10 minutes walk from our hotel. If you want to tour the island or head into Bridgetown, there's a bus stop right outside our hotel. All of our studios and two-bedroom suites are oceanfront and are newly renovated with porcelain tiles, granite counter tops, 42" LED TVs and custom made furniture. They are designed to make you feel right at home with kitchenettes, private balconies, air-conditioning, room safes & free wifi. Stay with us and see why our repeat guests usually book their next stay with us as soon as they return home. We guarantee you great value, spacious and immaculate rooms and an exceptional team who take pride in their jobs. Our staff will go out of their way to make your holiday one that you will remember forever. Recipient of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award for 7 consecutive years - 2010 through 2016. Yellow Bird Hotel, where you "Come as a Guest and leave as a Friend". ... more   less
