We absolutely LOVED this place. I have no words to describe how much of a great time we had there. The service, location and food are great. However, the best part of this place is the amazing private roof terrace. We had dinner and breakfast in that special spot every day that we were there and we will definitely go...

The hotel just completed repairs after Hurricane Matthew. Rather than turning us away, our gracious host, Petrona "cooked up" a delightful breakfast while we basked in the sheer beauty of the restaurant overlooking the Caribbean Bay. Would love to go back...a must see for friends..

My partner and I enjoyed three nights at the Mockingbird Hill Hotel in early November with our ten month old baby. The hotel's setting is very beautiful. It is located in the midst of a vast and lush tropical garden with many spots to "hide away" and to snug up with a good book. The rooms are spacious and tastefully...

I recently visited Jamaica for the first time and stayed at Hotel Mockingbird Hill, somewhere I'd known of from other travellers for many years. What a delight. I've stayed at many, many "eco-lodges" or boutique hotels that aim for sustainability, but few if any have succeeded as does Hotel Mockingbird Hill. The rooms (I was in #5) are all different,...

Unfortunately we didn’t like the Mockingbird Hotel at all. The only positive surprise of this hotel has been the young German intern doing all the service there. She has been really lovely and helpful. But: She was the only person working in service there. An intern… Also the hotel is quite run-down. It is old, the furniture looks from the...

Despite the fact that our records show no guests from London, UK in August, and we do not recall welcoming anyone from London during this time (hence our inability to say goodbye) we are sorry to learn that you did not like the hotel. We are however glad that you did enjoy the meals served. Unfortunately, based on your comments,...

After a meandering drive from step back in time Port Antonio, you turn off the main in Drapers, just before Blue Hole and Fairy Hill, is the commencement of a worthwhile adventure. The climb up the Portland-lush hill side, aiming right turn after right turn, is worth it...then there you are, far from the madding crowd on the door step...

First of all, you definitely have to spend some time there. Even if it is just for one night but it is an experience itself. You are welcomed with a cool and well smelled chill towel and a fresh welcome drink in the bar enjoying the first impressions – what a view!! You get a folder with lots of information...

Nestled in the hilltop forestry of Port Antonio, Jamaica sits Hotel Mockingbird Hill. With views of the ocean in the east and the curved indent of the town below, you are close enough either way with both the beach and town being no more than a 5min drive from either, but still up in the seclusion where you can breathe...

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...

The best part of travelling is being open to new experiences, exploring and discovering new things and yet feeling at home.

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.
