The hotel was awesome! The room was spacious and moderns. The restaurant had good food. The bar tender was terrific. He was quite inviting and helpful. The assistant manager- Leah, was an awesome help! She answered my multitude of questions I had about the hotel with a very pleasant attitude. Loved the stay and look forward to going back.

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Barbados at the fabulous Yelliw Bird Hotel. The staff at the hotel especially Monique and Jason, couldn't do enough for Barbie and me. The room was spacious and clean set up like an apartment with its own kitchen. The bed linen and towels were changed daily. Views from our balcony were... More

We read all the excellent reviews and hoped for the best. Well, they're true! It really is a find. There is very little to add. Customer care is prioritised. Even before we arrived, my emails were answered promptly and courteously. We found the 2nd floor provided the fabulous view without two much stair climbing (no lift). If stairs not an... More

We arrived here after staying for a week at a five star hotel on the West coast. It was lovely and I cannot fault it, the service was impeccable and I would rate it a five. But we would also give the Yellow Bird an equivalent rating as I don't think you could find better value on the island. From... More

There is a clear reason why this is ranked number one. The hotel is fantastic and the room are amazing. Incredibly spacious with a great balcony and view over the sea.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Yellow Bird is a newly renovated boutique hotel situated in St. Lawrence Gap, Barbados, 7 km from the airport and 10 km from Bridgetown. This 22 room hotel underwent a US $1.25 million renovation during summer 2015. The extensive project included a total facelift to all guest rooms and public areas including the building's exterior, lobby & reception, public rest rooms and restaurant. Our Fabulous Location Also known as "The Gap", this area is home to a collection of fine restaurants, clubs and bars. In the midst of it all, you'll find several street-side "chefs" grilling up anything from burgers to local favourites such as local fish, macaroni pie and other mouth-watering treats to tantalize your taste buds! During the day, you can choose between Sandy Beach, only two minutes away or the larger, more popular Dover Beach, a mere 10 minutes walk from our hotel. If you want to tour the island or head into Bridgetown, there's a bus stop right outside our hotel. All of our studios and two-bedroom suites are oceanfront and are newly renovated with porcelain tiles, granite counter tops, 42" LED TVs and custom made furniture. They are designed to make you feel right at home with kitchenettes, private balconies, air-conditioning, room safes & free wifi. Stay with us and see why our repeat guests usually book their next stay with us as soon as they return home. We guarantee you great value, spacious and immaculate rooms and an exceptional team who take pride in their jobs. Our staff will go out of their way to make your holiday one that you will remember forever. Recipient of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award for 7 consecutive years - 2010 through 2016.
