Heaven on Earth
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

MY birthday weekend was perfect! Though I had never been to Hotel Mockingbird Hill nor have I ever spoken to anyone who has stayed there, I have always wanted to stay, and eat at the restaurant. I just knew in my heart it was all heaven and peace and love and I was right. It was beyond phenomenal and EVERYONE there... from the waiter to the handyman...made our stay amazing. And the food... it was everything. My only regret is that I didn’t get to stay longer. So Thank you thank you thank you to everyone at Hotel Mockingbird Hill. I will be back! (Had too much of a good time so forgot to take photos!)

Still heavenly after all these years!

A second stay at Mockingbird Hill after 7-8 years served to remind us what a special place this is. Enhanced by the natural beauty of the beaches, forests, mountains, and great people of Portland parish, this is technically a 4-star class hotel that actually provides a 5-star experience. What it lacks in modern amenities (e.g., A/C, minibar, daily newspapers, TV, etc.), it more than makes up for in beauty, charm, eco-friendliness, serenity, and especially top-notch personalized service delivered by a gracious staff and knowledgeable management.

We stayed in room 10 this time. It may be a bit pricier than others, but the panoramic views are absolutely breathtaking and worth every penny. The complimentary breads, spreads, fruits, and beverages got us off to a perfect start each morning. An authentic Jamaican breakfast is also available. Free entry and transportation to nearby Frenchman's Cove (rightfully and consistently rated as one of the world's most beautiful beaches) is another huge boon. The owners will also gladly arrange reliable transportation to and from the airport and to the many incredible nearby sites. Dinner at the romantic Mille Fleurs restaurant is very pricey but very good. Also make sure you save time to take a leisurely walk in the impressive gardens that surround the hotel. You can easily get lost for hours there.

While Barbara and Shireen (the owners) were away, we were left in the capable hands of Angie, Carmen, Orlando, and other smiling staff members who continually went out of their way to make our stay a complete joy. Thanks to each and every one of them!

Holiday in Paradise
Reviewed 2 months ago

I felt myself indulged to the point of bliss while staying at Hotel Mockingbird Hill.
The hotel is completely stunning. Beautiful, unique touches are everywhere. The owners have married the gorgeous main building and rooms with the idyllic natural environment to create a space which is breathtaking.
Wake up to the myriad of bird song and fall asleep to a chorus of cricket and frog calls. Breathe in the heady scent of wildflowers. Its transporting.
At the onsite restaurant I ate the most succulent ribs of my life, enjoyed salads busting with surprising flavours and saw delightful touches on every plate. The complimentary breakfast of homemade breads and local fruits, savoured while overlooking the sparkling Ocean and picturesque town of Port Antonio, always helped me to start my day in the best possible way.
Top Tips: If only staying a short time don’t forget to take in the view from the Perch. It will strike you dumb for a good minute. Take a walk around the grounds. Sit and look at the mountains in the distance, quietly, with a beer, and just listen and watch. Just before sunset is best, or just after nightfall to catch the Firefly displays.
The local town of Drapers (10-15 minutes if walking down, 20 if walking up..) is charming and full of local atmosphere. Check out Vinyl nights on Sundays for a great slice of it.
Absolutely beautiful beaches are a short taxi/shuttle/road taxi (red number plates-pick up and drop off along the main road for 100 JSD) away; Winnifred also has the ‘vibes’, Frenchman’s Cove and Blue Lagoon are stunningly beautiful in different ways.
Port Antonio is a pretty safe town, and the local people are great.
Visit this place and have an incredible time.

JAMES BOND ?ECLIPSE?!
Reviewed 3 months ago

That's what the new James Bond movie is rumoured as titled :) So....spent a fabulously restful night here AGAIN .. 100% cotton sheets, rainforest and sea views, one of Jamaica's ASTOUNDING natural honeys at breakfast, honestly have never tasted as many honey flavours in one country as Jamaica... so you know... most of it all natural .. not sugar fed etc etc. AND I found out this is one of the hotels UTTERLY booked out mid April to May because JAMES BOND requires a rumoured 800 rooms to support the production while in Port Antonio... if you can find a nook or cranny while in Portland Jamaica April to May ... get here ... will be absolute serendipity in the middle mind you of .. (so keep your 'sensible personal safety radar' up and running)...Jamaican political jockeying for member of parliament around here :) ... stick to beaten path, be friendly and firm (learn a few choice Jamaican bad words :) ) get on with having fun and trust me your fortune could literally get made by who you bump into in Port Antonio... hundreds of true life versions of this tale here

Dinner at Mocking Bird Hill
Reviewed 3 months ago

Ought to just go and see what you see. It's a sort of legend.
Do call ahead and ask the possibilities for the evening
and be prepared to enjoy and carry on. It's Jamaica.
Start with the sunset from the building top and let go.
House wine is only OK as white and red but it's time
passed. The house needs a better pour.
Two vegetarian starters of Risotto and Lentil Soup had sincere flavors and textures. The vegetarian main course was done
with care and the one Jerk Lobster had a three tails. All were
eaten with a sparkle. Dessert was cake and ice cream. The
espresso was good. A la carte pricing to the tune of $136.30.
