We booked our room after doing extensive research on Trip Advisor and other sites. The New Years holiday week is a busy week with lots of people who own rooms (who normally rent them out) coming back to celebrate. We were fortunate enough to find The Whistling Bird and read through the vast reviews. This is a family run establishment... More

How wonderful to renew our wedding vows right on the beach!!!! Staff was amazing and catered to our every need. It was a low key affair but amazing!!! Water, beach and sunsets are steps from the cottages. Back to the real Jamaica!!!! Perfect time away from the craziness of life to reflect, soul search and make plans for the future!... More

Traveled to Jamaica last march for a leadership study abroad course. The whistling bird was our home for one week while we worked on a construction project for a local school. What do I have to say about my experience? It was one of a kind. The staff are incredibly friendly and very genuine people. I was able to sit... More

For absolute relaxation, this is my favorite place in Jamaica! The setting is beautiful with only a handful of private cottages and hands down, the best beach,sunning and sunsets! The staff will take care of you hand-and-foot, or let you do your own thing. A great little bar and for food you can let them know what, when and where... More

Authentic Jamaican holiday. It`s like being at the cottage. The exotic room cabins are nestled in a garden well hidden from the public beach but footsteps away from the warm sea.The food is exquisite. The sunsets breathtaking.The service is personalized, warm and friendly. James and Amanda, not to forget Miss Jee and Norton always make our stay feel perfect, a... More

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
