The location is special being on St Lawrence Gap, a great area for tourists. The staff are the strength of this hotel. They are very attentive and friendly. The restaurant and pool are a ++. Having the beach so close is great. Only negative would be lack of hot water. They seem to provide it during the day and not...

I don't actually know where to start with this review. My husband and I renewed our vows here in April 2017 I spent two years researching and came up with this gem for 12 of us. I contacted Erin in 2015 and have been emailing her constantly since along with Leah, the lady that organises weddings or renewal of vows....

Spent 11 nights here and are planning to return next year. All the staff were amazing, very friendly and helpful. Know some of their names but not all so don't want to single people out but be rest assured all the staff are a credit to the hotel. We left a couple of dollars for the maid who knocked on...

What can I say.....it's a home away from home. Our first visit to the island was in 1999 and every time we go we stay at the Yellowbird Hotel. Every room has a view of the fabulous ocean. So that means that every meal you have can be eaten on your own balcony by the sea. The rooms have been...

The staff at the Yellow Bird are top notch - very friendly and helpful! The premises are very clean and well kept. The location is perfect. Had a great time watching the sea turtles swimming in the bay from our balcony!

This is a small/boutique hotel but the level of personalized service, cleanliness, and attention to detail are more like a luxury/high-end property. Great place to stay on St. Lawrence Gap, and all rooms have an unobstructed beach view. The beach, while small, feels like a private beach--we never saw more than four other people there at any one time.

We stayed at this fabulous hotel for two nights prior to joining a cruise. Could not fault anything about the hotel and would definitely stay there again. Staff were very friendly and the room was lovely. Definitely recommend this hotel.

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. Yellow Bird Hotel, where you "Come as a Guest and leave as a Friend". ... more   less
