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 "UN" hotel,more like staying with a Jamaican family than a hotel in Jamaica! Ane we have and excellent Staff and a pretty full slate of services to offer. We can do food and drink, a simple breakfast or dinner for example. We offer a Genuine Jamaica lifestyle and serve Jamaican food and beverages in our private, open air bar and dining area.
