We stayed at the Yellow Bird over Christmas and New Year and would not hesitate to go back. The hotel is in one of the best locations on the Gap, very close to bars and restaurants yet just far enough away to enjoy some peace and quiet! Our room was very comfortable, overlooking the sea, spacious and clean and the...

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.

After visiting the Yellow bird for a manager's party, we went back the next morning for breakfast. We were greeted by friendly staff and enjoyed our eggs Benedict & fruit with a lovely view overlooking the beach. Our breakfast was reasonably priced and came within a short wait. Worth a stop while in St. Lawrence Gap

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.
