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 to the environment, attractively decorated, comfortable, well maintained but not fancy. The atmosphere is like that of a guesthouse or inn as Shireen and Barbara's very well-mannered dogs are frequently found lying on the tile floor of the reception area. We were attracted by the owners' commitment to sustainability and the opportunity to experience this firsthand. Shireen was gracious in answering all of our questions, providing context and candor about their efforts to provide more than just luxurious lodging and exceptional cuisine in an "exotic" setting. The hotel property includes a series of garden spaces reached by paths winding down the hillside with places to sit and watch the hummingbirds or marvel at the tropical foliage. Beyond Port Antonio are the Blue Mountains and the Rio Grande River. Both provide memorable experiences of the real Jamaica enhanced by the local guides whose personal pride in their country and knowledge of the local environment is impressive and enjoyable.
