Best stay ever! New windows and AC units, along with fresh paint and upgrades to the sleeping rooms has done wonders for this property. I have been staying here for 24 years and this is the best I've ever seen the place look. Bonus added when the YB family family is the same year after year. I almost hate to...

I stayed here a few years back and whenever my Aunt comes to Jamaica, this is where she stays. Always a pleasant place to visit! Right on the beach and close proximity to a bar :) Would recommend this place!

Also docked on property is Rasta Mikey's glass bottom boats. The daily tours take you to snorkel on the reef and to Booby Cay for...

Our stop in Negril was last from our tour in Jamaica, we did not stay at this hotel, but on our beach walk, looking for the perfect spot, we found Yellow Bird beach bar and it was the best! Great cocktails at a reasonable price with a friendly staff!

We did a side trip into Negril and on the way back, our driver took us to the Yellow Bird. We had drinks at the bar on the beach and watched the sunset. It was beautiful and the ambience at the bar was great. This looks like a quaint little resort - none of the hustle and bustle of the...

The YB crew always greets me with smiles, more than helpful to make my stay as comfortable as possible. The rooms are clean and basic (new windows installed). My favorite part is the the grounds are open and clean, perfect place to enjoy yoga, workout or nap. YB has one of the best beach areas with a bar. Beach vendors...

We stayed there for 8 nights. The grounds were well taken care of. The rooms were clean and basic. The tiki bar was awesome. The staff were very friendly and checked on us regularly to make sure everything was going well. I would stay there again.

I've been to Negril six or seven times for the Reggae Half Marathon in December, and have stayed at different places every time. I loved this place... to me, a great vacation is when you can meet fun people, sit on a beautiful beach, and have great drinks. Yellow Bird is definitely not a luxury hotel and you're not paying...
