“Wonderful Welcome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2006

A warm welcome awaits you at the Yellow Bird Hotel. We had a lovely spacious and well equipped room with a phenomenal view, right at the edge of the famous St. Lawrence Gap where the night life is buzzing. A lovely break. Many thanks.

The location of the Yellow Bird hotel is probably the best on the “Gap”. It has an uninterrupted view that overlooks a small sandy bay with half a dozen small fishing boats anchored there. There are several restaurants, of all standards, offering good quality food within easy reach.

Our room was light and airy with a functional kitchenette area, comfortable beds, and reasonably sized bathroom. It was cleaned and serviced every day. Our balcony was the perfect place for us to chill. From there we “people watched”, listened to the rhythm of the sea washing up onto the shore and, with an ice cool “sundowner” in hand, witnessed spectacular sunsets as the days slipped into nights.

The hotel was run efficiently by friendly staff, all of whom made us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. All of the staff added to our enjoyable stay at the Yellow Bird hotel, thanks to all of them.

The only down point we feel we should mention, and its not the hotels fault, was the noise coming from the nearby “Reggae Lounge”. Most nights it was just about tolerable. On the Thursday night some joker of a DJ let rip with a torrent of screaming, yelling and shouting into a “pumped up” sound system from 2am to 4am, it was horrendous. Something needs to be done to contain the noise to within the “Reggae Lounge”.

It was my first visit to the island and staying at the Yellow Bird added more enchantment to a wonderful visit. The room was very clean, it had two large comfortable beds, a small kitchen which facilitated getting my morning off to a good start, the yellow bird is not far from a local supermarket if you want to stock up, and the bath was very roomy as well. The view, the view right out to the water, the sounds of the ocean rolling in with the waves. Perfect. The staff not only asked how my day was on the first day but everyday after as well, not just an idle question but real concern if they could be of any assistance. Very much enjoyed my stay.

We stayed at the Yellow Bird hotel for one week, whith two young children, and had the most relaxing holiday you could ask for. The hotel was great, clean and tidy, and the staff were excellent, providing everything we needed and were brilliant with the children. If you visit you must try one of Roderick's Mudslides -they are to die for.

Very convenient, comfortable and excellent value for money. Friendly staff and for me very convenient to the wonderful Graham Hall Sanctuary, the best birding spot on Barbados.
