We are half way through our two week stay here and pleased to report all is well, our room is in the fourth floor (403) and recommended for great views over the bay.

So we canceled our reservations at a larger resort and chose to stay here for two reasons... Less money than the amount we were going go spend at the other place and because this is number two on trip advisor so what could wrong right? Well we are still here having another delicious breakfast here and I'm just writing this...

We recently spent a week at Yellowbird Hotel. The hotel is very clean and well kept. We found all of the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. It's unique location at the top of St. Lawrence Gap enabled us to experience many of the restaurants and beaches nearby. We would definitely revisit and would highly recommend this hotel to...

We stayed in a deluxe 2-bedroom suite on the main floor. Clean, comfortable, and well appointed for our needs. The staff were kind, friendly and very helpful. View from deck was "a postcard" according to our teenager. The beach, just across the street was sandy and a great place to hang out. Pool was clean and well kept. Ideally located...

After having spent some time on the west coast I can safely say you'll get a more authentic experience in St Lawrence Gap. Yellow Bird Hotel is perfectly located on the tip of St Lawrence Gap, over looking a beautiful beach view. The views, especially sunsets are second to none. The location is ideal for people watching, and a great...

We booked this hotel based on the great reviews here and it's location. We have stayed at a number of places in the Caribbean and none can top the friendly staff, location, view and room quality of the Yellowbird. Although this hotel is close to the nightlife of St Lawrence Gap (meaning noise) the rooms were very quite. We hated...

If you want a truly warm stay in Barbados then you must consider Yellow Bird. The rooms are very modern and stylish (their website photos don't do it justice), well equipped, fabulous beds, rain shower and quiet. All this and with a beautiful south west view that allows you to bask in the sunshine on your private balcony and drink...

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.
