Our experience from day one -when it rained but we got into our room hours earlier than expected- at this boutique hotel was just perfect. The manager /owner, (Geeta) who hosted a cocktail party on Friday -takes such a personal interest in her guests and in her community. She and her staff, are, to a person--the front desk, the bartenders-stellar...

All rooms face directly onto a small bay. Rooms are clean, and fairly well equipped kitchen. Staff are really friendly and helpful. The hotel is at the bottom of the gap, which has late bars and nightlife, so can be a bit noisy at night into the early hours.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Yellow Bird is a newly renovated boutique hotel situated 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 during summer 2015. The extensive project included a total facelift to all guest rooms and public areas including the building's exterior, lobby & reception, public rest rooms and restaurant. Our Fabulous Location Also known as "The Gap", this area 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.
