JAMES BOND ?ECLIPSE?!
Reviewed 1 month 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 1 month 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.

Beautiful but dinner outrageously priced
Reviewed 2 months ago

We loved our stay here and we certainly would have given this stay 5 stars if the dinner and cocktails weren't overpriced as they are now. The hotel is situated on a hill with a tremendous view off the coastline and the blue mountains. We had a very nice room with a mosquito net over the bed. The premises of the hotel comprises also a large and lush garden.

What we really found ridiculous was that we had booked a stay including breakfast and so we got a continental breakfast (which is pretty good). In this breakfast were no eggs included, what I don't like but okay that is possible. So we ordered a extra omelett. Now comes the ridiculous part, they ask $8,50 US for one extra omelette with onion and tomato or peppers, which is a ridiculous price for just a omelette, but it get worse, they didn't have any tomatoes and peppers (which I don't mind). So I ordered a omelette with onion and cheese. This was possible but then the omelett would get $1 US more expensive. So now was the omelett $9,50 US, but they didn't give us any discount for the missing tomato and peppers, very bad management. This proofs that their only concern is to get as much money from you as possible.
We stayed as a couple for 3 nights and had both a omelette each morning so it costed us $57 US extra vor 6 omelettes, which is outrageous.

Dinner is good and delicious but also overpriced. So if you stay here for more then one night we would recommend you to have dinner on some nights somewhere else. There are enough options in this area.

Except form the prices the hotel is good. If you want to visit frenchman cove you can get a free entrance ticket to the frenchman cove beach. Each morning they come and discuss with you what your plans are for the day and they give you some good advices to do and if you need towels they give you an extra pair of towels.

A great location for someone who is keen to see the endemic birds combined with relaxation
Reviewed 2 months ago

I’m a very keen birder and this location fits the bill. I saw 18 endemic birds without leaving the hotel and a further 4 more just a short stroll from the hotel. My wife celebrated her birthday here and. They could not have beenmore helpfull. If you are looking for something to please both partners in terms of birds, the beach, great location and great food. I would recommend this hotel.

A fantastic stay in Jamaica
Reviewed 3 months ago

The hotel is situated in an excellent location almost on top of the hill with a fantastic view all the way to the Blue Montain.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, and could not do enough for you.
The food was always fresh and locally sourced, and the menu was new every night with a wide selection of different meals.
The whole experience staying at Mockinbird Hill was great, and we enjoyed every minute.
