The staff are so friendly and helpful it is such a shame it has been neglected. However, tourist companies should not use hotels if they are not up to scratch. The room is big and airy , with a fantastic view of the ocean ,but the bathroom is an absolute dump, with a trickling shower and cold water every morning.... More

We stayed at the Yellow Bird on our honeymoon. We were welcomed with a bottle of brut upon our arrival which was lovely. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful especially wanted to mention Monica on the front desk who was amazing. The view from our balcony was perfect so was the clean pool and garden.

We really liked the location of this hotel in St. Lawrence Gap, it's close to everything. The view from our balcony was beautiful from morning to night when the sun set. The room itself is outdated and needs some work, but it was still fine. The bathroom is nice and big. The shower head desperately needs replaced, as the water... More

We stayed here in November/December 2014 and it was hot! I loved it. I've split my review into several key areas as these were the things that I was looking for when I was thinking about booking a hotel in Barbados. Noise levels - these vary, depending on the day of the week. There is no denying you will hear... More

The location of this hotel is stunning, just at the start of The Gap across the road from a beautiful bay with awesome sunsets! All the rooms are facing the ocean, we stayed on the 3rd floor, which I think must have the best views..our room wasn't upgraded but this didn't bother me at all, it had everything we needed,...
