This past April we visited Barbados for the 16th time since our first visit in 2003. Except for two of these visits we've always stayed at the Yellow Bird. We were on the island in December of 2014 but we stayed at a house on the beach in order to be near friends we were traveling with. The beach house... More

We stayed in the same room as we did two years previously and again we were more than delighted with what the hotel had to offer. The refurbishments will freshen up the rooms, but they will come at a price. The staff, as ever were fantastic, courteous and knowledgeable and we loved sitting out on our balcony looking over Little... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks and have to say the hotel is definitely in a great location to access not only the local area but also the entire island. I'll get the bad stuff out the way first, the room was in need of a massive facelift. Both the bathroom and the kitchenette were not in a great state, very... More

The Hotel did not look like the pictures. The website did not mention it did not have stairs and my room was on the 4th floor. The staff seemed friendly but I was not impressed by the accommodations. The room had very hard double beds and the view showed a small lagoon with small fishing boats. The bathroom had a... More
