What can I say, everything was perfect. Every member of the staff was wonderful, our room and view was amazing. Only regret, we didn't stay longer. Was worried that Gap noise would keep us up, not an issue. Rooms were noise tight. Location even better than it looks, we did a ton of snorkeling and turtle watching at next door...

What a fabulous place to stay! It's at the end of the Gap....close to the action but not noisy; newly done, modern rooms decorated with bright Caribbean colors and all the amenities you want. There's even an equipped kitchen for nights when you feel like cooking in. All the rooms have spacious balconies that overlook a beach and the beautiful...

We just got home from staying nine days at the Yellow Bird Hotel in Barbados. The room was spectacular, the view was to die for, but what made it even more special yet was the amazing staff!

Just got back from another great holiday at the Yellow Bird Hotel. This was our sixth visit and just as enjoyable as previous stays. The hotel's refurbishment some two years ago enhanced the quality of the rooms and they continue to be maintained to a high standard. The full facilities in the rooms enable self catering, especially leisurely breakfasts on...

Yellow Bird is a small hotel and run with admirable efficiency and a personal touch. I undertake a lot of business travel and hotel efficiency is really important to me. It is a pleasure to find a holiday hotel that runs as smoothly as an operation more geared to business travel and where nothing is too much trouble. The location...

We had a room on the top floor with great views over the sea. Room was well appointed and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. In a convenient location near Dover and Worthing beaches. Worthing is better for swimming as protected by a reef. Lots of eating places nearby.

We just spent the week at the Yellow Bird, and it was an excellent experience all around. Worthing Beach ("Sandy Beach" being the local name for our end of it) is perfect for children. Our little boys are 6 and 9, and we were able to swim with the big Hawkbill Turtles right in front of the hotel. The water...

Had a tasty lunch at this hotel mid week and the food was great and the service good but unhurried. Good value and good eats. It has parking in the back which is hard to find in this area. Hotel was booked solid (I asked) and is right across the road from the water.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Yellow Bird is an award-winning newly renovated boutique hotel 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 in 2015, including a total facelift to all guest rooms, the building's exterior, lobby & reception, public rest rooms and restaurant. Our fabulous location also known as "The Gap", 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.
