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

I just went there with a big group and I felt like I was in heaven. I think a lot of the negative reviews of this hotel stem out of people who may not understand that the hotel is not like Sandals where there is a first-world style of service, whereas the whistling bird is run by Jamaicans and the...

I love the Whistling Bird! The little cottages are snug and clean, the staff friendly and helpful, the grounds secure and attended by watchful security and the lovely greenery well groomed and lovingly tended to. On the seven miles of white sand beach in Negril, the Whistling Bird is a beautiful way to enjoy the beach, the ocean and fabulous... More

This was such a relaxing place to stay! It's my first visit to Jamaica, and I am really enjoying it though there is some "culture shock". My stay at this resort helped me to settle in by giving me a safe and quiet place to relax. The staff at this resort are so friendly and treated my boyfriend and I... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beach cottages in a unique enclave. Totally immersed in nature, intensively landscaped. The cottages can be large or small, simple or deluxe. Whistling Bird offers amenities, several are unique. It's a small family business - an UNhotel, yet we have a pretty full slate of service to offer. We can do food and drink, a simple breakfast or dinner for example. What we really like to do is show off fine dining with our five course meal plan of refined Jamaican dishes. ... more   less
