“Great Two Hour Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This was a great half day adventure. We had an informative ride up with our tour guide Ken from Doctor Bird Tours. The bird sanctuary was well worth the money as you got to feed humming birds and see all the other birds in the area. The humming birds would land on your finger and feed from a bottle of sugar water, the children loved the experience. Would go back again!

“Attack of the Hummers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We went to Rockland Feeding Station on the way to the airport on our last day. It's only six miles from Montego Bay but the last mile might best be walked. Describing the road as bumpy is like saying a hurricane is a bit breezy. It's worth it, however, as once there you are treated to a once-in-a-lifetime chance to feed a hummingbird. In addition, there are lots of other birds and flowers in this garden oasis. I took a nature walk to observe other birds while my wife and brother-in-law stayed behind to feed. I hurried back after my hour walk because I thought they would be bored, but they were in no hurry to leave.
The only downside was a bit of a common hustle we encountered throughout Jamaica.
As we finished, the guide asked for $20, then after you give it to him, he says that it goes "to the owner" and can I give him something? This strategy was repeated often where ever we went. But that's another story.
That being said, feeding and viewing the birds at Rockland is an experience well worth pursuing. It's the kind of place you really don't want to leave and won't ever forget.

“Something to love about Jamaica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

If you like nature and want a great side trip, go here. History or original owner is interesting and nice that this place continues to operate.

“Wonderful for bird & flower lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Our second trip here in 7 years. Still a wondefful experience and always a memoriable and unique experience. My granddaughter loved it at age 5, and again at age 12. Very relaxing setting with remarkably tame and beautiful hummingbirds. Well worth the trip up from the coast.
