I've stayed at Whistling Bird so many times that it is like being at home. If you are searching for an authentic Jamaican vacation where you actually get to meet Jamaicans and avoid the gigantic resorts, Whistling Bird is your place. With private bar and restaurant Anthony and the crew at Whistling Bird will make sure you have a great... More

If you are like us and you don't enjoy staying in Resorts, this is the perfect place to enjoy a real Jamaican experience. For me spending time in a resort, is detached from the country that I am in. Each resort is the same as another. This was our second stay at Whistling Bird and we met a few people... More

Wonderful authentic Jamaican food coupled with some regular favorites provide appetizing meal options on property. Great beach view, friendly staff and unique surroundings make this a taste of Jamaica full of personality and local flavor. Comfortable mattresses and powerful fans create a pleasant sleeping environment despite the humidity and heat. Can't wait to be back at the Whistling Bird!

If you want to really experience jamaican hospitality this is the place. Major renovations, upgrades, and training have occurred since the original owners have passed and left the property to their son James. Food is good. Mattresses are good. Staff is awesome including round the clock securit. Not the best water pressure or temperatures, bugs, lizards, people selling stuff on... More

I stayed here whilst on a service trio through my fraternity. The service and rooms were wonderful. The owners and staff were friendly. The food was stellar! The week I stayed was one of the best experiences I've had!

It was the perfect place for my partner and I. The staff was very kind and accommodating. We got engaged on the beach at sunset and the staff went out of their way to make it extra special and romantic. This was our first time to Jamaica and in the future the whistling bird will always be the place where... More

I recently went to Jamaica for the 1st time and stayed at Whistling Bird for a few nights. What a delight! No...this is not Sandals...THANK GOD! This is a family-owned and operated business that has been around for a long time. Amanda and James were so friendly and always eager to make everything just right for us. The open air... More
