We have just come back from a lovely three day stay at this picturesque eco-hotel. It was already dark when we arrived, which was fun when trying to navigate the steep winding hill up to the property. This looks a lot more daunting than it actually is. Once parked in the ample car park we were met by the night... More

We didn't stay but booked for dinner when staying in the area. What a beautiful location and property - even though it was raining heavily we could see how stunning it was both inside and out. We had a lovely meal, beautifully served, and the staff were very warm and welcoming and good with our young son. It was one... More

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the meal and the setting as well as the care and good service. Thank you. The opinions on the portions vary - most guests find them very generous especially with all the complimentary accompaniments that are provided, including a generous basket of home baked breads and rolls and an amuse bouche.

Damp bedsheets, maybug infestation, mosquito infestation, insufficient lighting, regular power cuts, no air conditioning, intimidating rude staff who double up as the owners, appalling food cooked by the owner, very misleading website and grossly overpriced. I have absolutely no idea how this hotel continues to receive any positive reviews -it simply doesn't make sense. I've stayed in many hotels across... More

These guests have chosen to write another vitriolic review complaining about the owners of the hotel, the service, the food and the property having already done so in a previous one (Scary Authoritarian Owners Made Us Run Away). They wonder how we could have ever received any positive comments. The fact is that in 23 years we are proud to... More

Port Antonio is a little off the beaten path from most of the typical tourist destinations in Jamaica, which means if you're going there the most important thing to bring is a sense of adventure. If you don't have that, you might have a hard time enjoying yourself no matter where you stay. As long as you're feeling adventurous though,... More

Killing one may have been the title of that much lauded American novel, but here's another one to die for. North eastern Jamaica has to be the most alluring part of the country, granted it's relatively remote and well beyond mainstream tourism and the over proliferating all- inclusive, but it's all the better for it. Half a mile up a... More

We stayed last November 2015 in this eco-boutique hotel. It's our first time in the Caribbean so we were super excited for our week holiday in Jamaica.

Have you ever had such thoroughly unpleasant experience in a hotel, that you've left several hours after you've arrived? We hadn't until Mockingbird Hill! Firstly, we would like to establish that we were offered our room at a discounted rate as the advertised price felt too expensive and furthermore it was the beginning of the off season. We appreciated this.... More

As individual consumers, we often find that there are things we personally don’t like - whether it relates to fashion, music, food or hotels and we must accept that the particular brand or product is simply not to our taste or shall we say “not our cup of tea”… but we should never attempt to abuse the proprietor, misrepresent the...

If the tranquil surroundings and the amazing views from this hotel do not help you unwind, then nothing will!
