We love the Yellow Bird. The accommodations are not 5 star -- some of the appliances in the cottages are older and need some work -- but the positives far outweigh the negatives. When we go to Jamaica, we always stay here because the staff treats you like family and the resort feels like home rather than a hotel. You can walk across the lawn to get coffee and chat with the staff in your pajamas. There is plenty of room for our kids (2 and 4) to run and play. There are community get-togethers regularly, like cookouts. There is a community atmosphere among the people who stay at the cottages. The staff is very accommodating.
We don't want a resort atmosphere -- my husband is a Jamaican -- so we like that the Yellow Bird feels as if you are living with the locals. If you want a "real" laid-back, relaxing Jamaican experience, stay at the Yellow Bird. If you are an uptight tourist who expects Jamaica to be the same as America, this is not the place for you.
