Nestled in the beautiful hills of Portland, this hideaway hotel really surprised me and my partner. It was a birthday celebration that was made extra special by the accommodating support of the management and staff. The service was really exceptional and made for a wonderful stay. Not only did we learn to birdwatch, but we also enjoyed delicious meals including a specially curated birthday dinner. As this was pre-COVID, we were able to engage with other visitors at dinner and breakfast which was an intimate touch. We truly felt special and enjoyed the experience that was provided.

Located on the foothills of the Blue Mountains just outside of Port Antonio, Mocking Bird Hill is notable for its hard to reach but beautiful location and grounds. It is a Eco-Hotel so forget about air conditioning - the evenings are often breezy and there were no windows, just slotted plantation style window and porch doors that allow the breeze (and mosquitoes) in - so use the provided mosquito netting at night or expect a few bites. If the night gets hot and there is no breeze, ceiling fans will help air circulation. Breakfast is mostly fruit and bread with great coffee and juice. I went on a birding trip with a private guide, leaving early in the morning, and staff packed a great breakfast picnic for me! I was very impressed. Besides the swimming pool, not much for children to do, but fine for couples. Dinners in the restaurant were hit-or-miss and generally not impressive. The true allure of this spot is in it’s beautiful gardens - numerous winding trails invite birdwatching and peaceful meditation. The staff were friendly and helpful. Transportation from airports in Kingston or Montego Bay can be very expensive or cumbersome - renting and self-driving the 4 hours from Montego is cheaper but not for the faint of heart as rules of the road are almost non-existent and there are some dangerous switch-backs. The road up to the hotel is also fairly rough. Also, I strongly advise exchanging your money to Jamaican Dollars before reaching Port Antonio as many vendors in the area will take advantage of tourists who only carry US$. We often found ourselves in issues because we didn’t prepare well with local currency. If you like things a bit less touristy, love gardens and birds, this is a beautiful location for a few nights.

It’s one thing to write a review based on a short stay of 1or 2 nights. But to be able to sum up your experiences over a fortnight, when you have had much more contact with the team and a better sense of how we treat our guests, as a wonderful experience, that is a great compliment. We are so glad, we were able to exceed your expectations. Thank you for the great review, which has made our day! We appreciate the time you have taken to share this lovely review with us and the community and helping us with your recommendation.

Three of us just finished a wonderful week in the eco-resort Hotel Mockingbird Hill. Its pleasures included a porch with a sweeping view out over rain forest vegetation down to the Caribbean, swims in the sea at Frenchman's Cove, great food, the best massages we've ever had, an underused swimming pool -- underused because there are only ten rooms -- and a chilled vibe that creeps up on you and leaves you relaxed and happy after a few days.

I had the good fortune to spend 9 nights relaxing at Hotel Mockingbird Hill. I was looking for an authentic Jamaican eco hotel and certainly found it. The beautiful building is nestled in a fabulous 6 acre tropical garden filled with every kind of flora and fauna, it is a bird spotter’s paradise. The local beaches are within easy reach and are some of the most beautiful in the Caribbean. The staff from the moment Mr Whittley White collected me from Kingston Airport could not have been more helpful. Angela made sure everything ran smoothly during my stay, accommodating my dietary requirements with some of the best Jamaican food I have tasted. Angela also does massage which is a must. Orlando and Patrona could not have been more helpful as well. Very sad to leave but I will certainly be returning with my family very soon.

Wow! Thank you so much for your wonderful remarks. It was a pleasure to have you as our guest. We will be sure to share your comments with the rest of the team. They will be happy to know that you felt at home and welcomed by all. It’s also gives us great pleasure to know how much you enjoyed the gardens - sadly, those booking very short stays sometimes do not even get to see them. We are delighted to hear that you found our staff warm and friendly and our restaurant excellent. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts – your feedback is greatly appreciated and motivates our team further. We hope to see you back with your family at Mockingbird Hill very soon.
