“Clean and basic”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

This is a genuine two star hotel so don't come expecting luxury. Those guests we saw who were unhappy had set their sites too high. You get what you pay for and for a very reasonable rate you will get a place to sleep and some of the basics like a small pool and beach. The bar is only open in the afternoon so the evenings are very quiet. Food is quite good but the restaurant is very dull and you are usually alone in the dining room.

We recommend renting a car while staying here so you can get to restaurants and towns. This hotel is off the beaten track and a good distance from the city and other beach attractions. If you're a diver, it's perfect. Walk down the steps and jump on the dive boat. Enjoy your day with Capt Crabby and the crew.

This hotel is very clean. The rooms, the grounds, the pool -- all immaculate. I don't mind a basic place as long as it's clean and well taken care of. The staff at Bird Rock are the friendliest I've seen and seem to genuinely care that you are happy. Thanks for great morning coffee tray Ms. Abbott!

Room Tip: Worth it to get a room with kitchen. More space and convenience. There's little around Bird Rock...

We stayed here for two weeks and had a delightful stay. This is a locally owned, older property. In the US, you might compare it to a Motel 6. It is clean, comfortable, and the delightful staff will leave a light on for you. The pool is nice, and down the stairs is a delightful beach with a bar (chicken tacos are fab). We found everyone to be helpful about getting the rooms set, calling cabs, etc.

It is a bit far from anything: you can walk into town, and we did several times, but if you aren't renting a car it can feel a bit out of the way. On the flip side, it's in a nice neighborhood surrounded by homes and we enjoyed walking around. The owner has breakfast there everyday: the Resturant food is good and fresh.

You can rent snorkel or scuba gear here.

The rooms are dated--other reviews mentioned the 1980s--but my big thing is that it was clean, the view of the ocean was amazing, the grounds were lovely, and the people terrific.

We met many lovely locals here: I think a place that locals will go is a good place. We would stay here again.

I stayed at the Bird Rock hotel in January 2013, not the best on the island but you get what you pay for. Staff were friendly and helpful, room was clean and AC worked. Pictures on their website are not total true to life. Food was ok but portions are very small. If you can eat some where else. Walls are very thin, could hear the TV on in the next room all night long, could hear their phone calls too.

My husband and I stayed at the Bird Rock our first night in St. Kitts before staying at the Marriott. It was a decent stay; the accommodations aren't the best but, then again, you are not paying for the best. :)
What you will get is a friendly staff and the best cup of coffee you'll ever have in the morning.

The Bird Rock has a full service dive center on the property with and dive boat. It was great to walk from my room right to the boat in the morning. Having traveled the caribbean I would rate Bird Rock as a good local hotel. If you want the crowds, american type amenities $$$ stay at the Marriott. Bird Rock is an good value, with a friendly staff, clean rooms, and good food on property. We stayed 7 nights here on our honeymoon.

When you see the pictures of the place, it looks wonderful. Its NOT its run down, small,A/c barely works, furnishing are wore out, and over priced. $19.95 a nite hotel in the US. Its was all BAD!!! Door to the balcony was off the tracks water tap leaked all night. many empty beer bottles were laying around on the grounds. Any place on the Island is better than this!!!

Room Tip: Stay Away, just vist it to see what might have been.

Very practical accommodations with a great view of the ocean and Basseterre. If you are looking for high-end luxurious accommodations with all of the amenities, this is not the spot. But if you want a basic room with convenient kitchenette in your room at an affordable price with very courteous staff, this fits.
