Great hospitality. Employees are the best. Being part of 9-Mile Beach in February is so relaxing and the Tiki Bar is wonderful. As far as I'm concerned, it's the best place in Jamaica to soak up the sun and forget about all your worries.

Spent my day at Yellow Bird with a friend who was staying there. Two for one drinks at the bar from 9 AM to 6 PM. Nice friendly staff. Rooms are kind of basic but ok. great beach location. No food I could see but near a lot of places that had food. Budget get away.

We recently went to Negril, and almost everyday we enjoyed some of the best dirty bananas on the beach at the Yellow Bird...For 400 JA, or $4 US we had two perfectly made dirty bananas...We were never disappointed. If you want a good cold drink stop by when you are walking the beach...
