Thanks to Shireen, Barbara, Jason and all the other staff we found Mockingbird a wonderful place to stay. Everyone went out of their to be helpful. We could not fault the service, food, accommodation or trips out. And Barbara's artwork throughout the property was a joy to behold. Thank you.

There are many beautiful places on Jamaica island, but I will tell you what I like the most. Set off in a northward direction from the capital Kingston towards the town of Port Antonio – Jamaica’s main banana port – then continue eastward along the coast and you will find the private beach known as Frenchman’s Cove, a magical place...

Beautiful hotel, with beautiful food. Wonderful rooms, magical gardens, genuinely memorable food. No aircon in rooms may be problematic for some (there are fams but these were noisy). Rooms were in my opinion, expensive compared to other hotels in the area (albeit that the competition is not as beautiful). We stayed in the cheapest room at over $300 per night.... More

We were hoping to do some walks in the back country and boy - did Shireen deliver. After a brief phone conversation, Shireen graciously invited us up for tea to discuss some options. Upon arrival at the hotel, it was obvious that we had stumbled on to a magificently beautiful oasis. And then, what a pleasure it was to spend... More

This beautiful little eco-friendly inn -- only 10 rooms -- has gardens you can get lost in. Magical for birding. They told us not one tree had been taken down to build the inn or create the gardens! I was looking for something totally stress-free and restful in Jamaica and my husband was looking for waterfalls and hiking. We found... More

You cannot find better place to stay around Port Antonio - sleep there once and take a dinner there and you will understand! Breakfast is something unforgetable, too. Of course, all food in open air, with really stunning views. The accommodation itself is great, without any doubt.

As a local resident of the area, I am familiar with the many choices available. Mocking Bird Hill stands apart as an oasis of tranquility with arresting views of this very beautiful piece of Jamaica. We love to start our day with a yummy breakfast on the veranda drinking in the views or ending it with a cocktail and a... More

From the moment of arrival, we felt like spending our vacation at the house of an aunt or a cousin who has set her mind to make our stay special and relaxing. The hotel has the atmosphere of a plantation home set in the middle of a beautiful large garden. The premises allow for privacy, as does the building layout.... More

We had a great welcome from Barbara and Shireen, the two owners of the this oasis in the hills above Port Antonio. The hotel was almost empty and they upgraded us. Lots of flowers and little gifts in the room. Food is home-cooked to order from a varied menu and the quality is excellent, though it naturally takes a little... More
