Yellow Bird Hotel Barbados is certainly no stranger to cheap beach vacations, but before you start conjuring up images of dingy hotel rooms with substandard service, you might want to read on.
This delightful boutique hotel offers 18 beautifully appointed rooms for a fraction of the cost of staying at a superior or luxury residence.
The hotel was renovated in 2015, and this was by no means a casual spruce-up. The major overhaul includes new room fixtures and furnishings, new porcelain tiles, and granite counter tops. Property upgrades include a renovated façade, lobby, reception, public bathrooms, and restaurant.
The Yellow Bird Hotel has been around for as long as I can remember and is one of the island’s most established boutique hotels. As a testament to its longevity and the service it has provided over the years to its guests, the Hotel was awarded the Trip Advisor Hall of Fame Award in 2016 and the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence Award for 7 consecutive years.
Visitors looking for cheap beach vacations usually select the South Coast of the island for its affordable hotels and guest houses.
The Yellow Bird Hotel Barbados resides on this coast and sits right at the St. Lawrence Gap entrance (also known as The Gap), a popular Street known for its mélange of restaurants, bars and sports bars, hotels, nightclubs and beaches.
The hotel fronts St. Lawrence Bay, a popular spot for water sports, and is within easy walking distance to lots of area amenities and public transportation to Bridgetown.
The area is quiet during the day. Resident taxi drivers comb the area for business while a handful of delivery trucks make their rounds. Local vendors showcase their art along this strip and you can take your pick from shaded make-shift tables to air-conditioned shops like Walker's World.

At night it is quite the opposite, especially on weekends. If your vacation is centered around lots of activity, then this is a great place to start for good rates and a top location.

Yellow Bird Hotel Barbados features 15 deluxe studios and 3 inviting two-bedroom suites including 1 penthouse.
The two-bedroom deluxe suites are located in the annex next to the hotel, which also fronts St. Lawrence Bay. Once inside, the suites are quiet and deliver lots of privacy.
