I've stayed at Whistling Bird so many times that it is like being at home. If you are searching for an authentic Jamaican vacation where you actually get to meet Jamaicans and avoid the gigantic resorts, Whistling Bird is your place. With private bar and restaurant Anthony and the crew at Whistling Bird will make sure you have a great...

If you are like us and you don't enjoy staying in Resorts, this is the perfect place to enjoy a real Jamaican experience. For me spending time in a resort, is detached from the country that I am in. Each resort is the same as another. This was our second stay at Whistling Bird and we met a few people...

Wonderful authentic Jamaican food coupled with some regular favorites provide appetizing meal options on property. Great beach view, friendly staff and unique surroundings make this a taste of Jamaica full of personality and local flavor. Comfortable mattresses and powerful fans create a pleasant sleeping environment despite the humidity and heat. Can't wait to be back at the Whistling Bird!

If you want to really experience jamaican hospitality this is the place. Major renovations, upgrades, and training have occurred since the original owners have passed and left the property to their son James. Food is good. Mattresses are good. Staff is awesome including round the clock securit. Not the best water pressure or temperatures, bugs, lizards, people selling stuff on...

It was the perfect place for my partner and I. The staff was very kind and accommodating.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beach cottages in a unique enclave. Totally immersed in nature, intensively landscaped. The cottages can be large or small, simple or deluxe. Whistling Bird offers amenities, several are unique. It's a small family business - an UNhotel, yet we have a pretty full slate of service to offer. We can do food and drink, a simple breakfast or dinner for example. What we really like to do is show off fine dining with our five course meal plan of refined Jamaican dishes. ... more   less

“Ask for a room with screens on the windows. it will be more comfortable than a room with closed windows and an a/c unit. Screens allow fresh air to come in without the mosquitos.”
