“nice hotel..but.......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

The yelllow bird hotel is a lovely hotel on the very edge of st lawrence gap, idealy located for resturants all with differant flavours, mexican,brazilian,greek and local all within in 3 minutes (or less) walk from the hotel, there is a beach directly across from the hotel, you can get to this by crossing a not very busy road, having said that ,the beach is not ideal as it is very small, but just a short walk (5 mins) up the main road there are some stunning beaches, where you can hire sunloungers and parasols ( i suggest getting them from the guy nearest to the carrib beach bar, they are more comfortable) Back to the hotel, All the staff are very friendly, very polite and very helpfull, THE MAJOR DOWN SIDE TO THIS HOTEL IS THUS, although it is idealy positioned for restuarants, you have to take into account there are also bars, VERY NOISEY ONES, the music from these bars went on until 2,3 AND 4am, and the music is played on volume 11, the hotel is so close to these bars you can actually hear the songs being played, not muffled noise thats carried on the wind, this is the only problem with this hotel, every other aspect of it is A1, Would i stay hear again......... despite the noise, YES I WOULD, i had a great time there.

Room Tip: we where in room 202, the room had a stunning view of the carribean ocean, if you get this room, i s...

We felt like we were being greeted by family when we arrived, the staff remembered our names and was expecting us. The room was wonderful, overshadowed only by the magnificent view. Three different times we swam with turtles in the cove right in front of the hotel! Because we have visited Barbados multiple times, the management even got us and some other guests invited to a special event at the Prime Minister's house during our visit. We booked for next New Years before we checked-out, and I think the couple that came with us will be returning as well. Love the Yellow Bird!

Room Tip: The rooms on lower floors are quieter at night when the local restaurants and clubs can be noisy.

My cousin and I stayed at the Yellow Bird Hotel from the 7th-11th Nov, we had a blast.
The staff was very accommodating and kind. The location of the hotel is just across from the beach which was so relaxing, going to bed and waking up to the pounding surf was fabulous, the view from our room was great. We got lovely pictures.
The Pool and restaurant was exceptional. (Yummy food).
The ambiance of the hotel is that of warmth and joy. The staff educated us on the island tours and booked everything for us.
The location again is on the GAP, which is walking distance from beautiful beaches& restaurants.
Could not ask for a better hotel and location.
I will stay there again in the future.
Love always, Nina :)

Room Tip: Get the top floor, view is great :)

Just returned from a week in Barbados staying at the Yellow Bird Hotel. Rooms are a little basic and tired but very clean and the staff are so friendly and welcoming.We had a great view of the ocean and all the bars and restaurants in the Gap are just a few minutes walk away.

My sister and I stayed here for one week, wished it was more! Hotel room (202) was a little jaded and in need of a refurb but it had a beautiful view of the ocean. It was a huge room and perfect for me and my sister. The location is super for eating out, relaxing and central for transportation around the island. A little noisy at times but then we should have stayed out later...... The noise of nearby music places stops around 3am. The staff were very helpful and always pleasant, nothing too much trouble especially when I broke the handle on my beach bag. I would def stay again.

Just returned from our third visit to this wonderful little hotel.Thank you everyone for being so helpful and kind to my friend and I. The location for us is firstclass as we are two ladies who love to sit on our balcony in the evening and look at the uninterupted view of the carribbean sea. Watch the fishing boats come in, cross the small road and buy some just caught fish from the fisherman, buy avocados the best you have ever seen from the lady with the basket on her head,watch the people strolling up and down the Gap dressed in their finest evening clothes.This is all in your backyard at Yellow Bird. Every review is correct all those people can't be wrong but please save a room for me next year!
