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!

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
