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...

We love the Yellow Bird. The accommodations are not 5 star -- some of the appliances in the cottages are older and need some work -- but the positives far outweigh the negatives. When we go to Jamaica, we always stay here because the staff treats you like family and the resort feels like home rather than a hotel. You... More

Arranging transportation with him in advance was a great idea. The accommodations were basic, not fancy, but they were clean and we had everything... More
