This was the second place we stayed at on our travels through Jamaica. Sherri, the owner of this lovely place, exudes love and comfort and a welcoming space as do the rest of her team. She gave this place a feeling of being home and though again there are a lot of places you can go to and bird watch... More

We stayed four nights and wished it had been five. Mockingbird Hill is a magical place. Situated at an elevation above the lush jungle hills outside Port Antonio it allows guests to settle into a place of calm and tranquility while gazing out over the tree canopy to the sea and mountains along the coast. The rooms are ideally suited... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 days as part of a 7-day birding tour of Jamaica, and wished we could have stayed longer. It is one of the top 5 places we've stayed at during 20-plus years of international travel. Not only is the accommodation lovely and comfortable as noted in previous reviews, but it sets the high bar... More

It is gratifying to learn that you noted and appreciated so many of the responsible practices implemented in operating the hotel. Hopefully they added "meaning" into your holiday, knowing that there is this additional dimension to staying here which also enhances your experience. So even though you only stayed here for a short time, we appreciate that you enjoyed spending... More

We spent 4 days in January of 2014. Beautiful gardens, peaceful, many nearby attractions. A profoundly relaxing experience. The food was a treat; great choices and new options every day for dinner. Spend a day at Frenchman's cove!

I stayed at Mocking Bird Hill for 4 nights with a birding tour group. After a long (we often started at 5 am) hot day in the field, returning to the peaceful beauty of the hotel and its gardens was a wonderful restorative. The approach to the hotel is deceptive; up a pot-holed road bordered by heavy vegetation, the façade... More

This hotel is situated on a beautiful hillside outside Port Antonio. The views from our room and the public rooms are outstanding.Watching the sun go down over the bay while sipping a cocktail was one of the highlights of our stay. The gardens are extensive and birding them was very rewarding. You can see many endemics without leaving the grounds.... More

It's lovely to hear that you enjoyed yourselves and felt at home and safe - despite the negative perceptions and apprehensions that many have and some query about their safety and wellbeing due to the press highlighting some incidents without putting things into perspective. Thank you for reassuring others that in this quiet corner of the island, everyone from our... More

This is the third time we have stayed at Mocking Bird Hill. Apart from the fact that it is in a beautiful location, with fantastic views down to the sea, it is also a real haven of peace.

Back in November, my two girlfriends, one child and I, took a few days to explore Portland. We woke up in the morning ready to find an eatery with a good breakfast menu. Little did we anticipate that Portland was like ghost town in the mornings and we'd be driving around for an hour looking for somewhere to eat. Inpatient... More
