We've visited Barbados on a number of occasions but this was our first stay at the Yellow Bird and I think it's safe to say "we'll be back!" From the moment we arrived we received a wonderful welcome and all the staff are fantastic and friendly.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Yellow Bird , it is a fabulous location right on the beach, the staff exceptional and very helpful. Large rooms with kitchen and balcony , we would certainly stay again. Easy walk to some beautiful beaches. If you want an unpretentious small hotel , this is the one for you .

It was our visit to the Island and we choose the Yellow Bird. The Hotel was perfect, it was clean, great people and a great view and location. The only reason I did not give it five stars was the café which is attached. Everywhere was buzzing and busy apart from this place, there was no atmosphere, we would have...

We chose Yellow Bird having visited for a meal on a previous holiday to St Lawrence Gap. We were not disappointed! Rooms were brilliant . We asked to swop to a ground floor room as I was recovering from knee surgery. They accommodated us without hesitation.

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.
