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...

First you must realize you are not in a 5 or 4 star property. You are on an Island. Open your door and step out right on to the beach( 7 mile). The cottages are old and in need of a facelift BUT the staff is eager to please and you need to just RELAX. I/we have stayed here a...

Ask Corrin to make a dirty monkey, she will laugh and know it came from me, she makes the best margarita I've ever had,. You can rent a chair on the beach there in the shade, do it. You will love the atmosphere.

The Yellow Bird is not a 5 star resort and doesn't pretend to be either. What the Yellow Bird is though, is a place where the staff is excellent, the services is fantastic, and it sits right on a beautiful beach. The atmosphere is relaxed and is a perfect place to get away and have a great time. There are...

The Yellow Bird is a smallish hotel on the beach but this review is of their beach bar only. Whenever we are walking on the beach, we always stop by the Yellow Bird for their great blended drinks. If you are walking by (it is located close to Legends), stop in. The featured drinks are two for $5 US so...
