We are just coming back from an amazing 4 days stay at Hotel Mocking Bird Hill in eastern Jamaica.

The hotel has wonderful views on both the ocean and the mountains. It's quiet and peaceful, yet surrounded with many things to do and explore.

Our room was large, luminous, super clean, lovely decoration with fresh flowers, and organic bath products.

Service was great. Everything, starting from the welcome drink and gifts awaiting in the bedroom, is done so that you feel at home in a very friendly and cosy atmosphere.
Barbara's organic slow food is super tasty and fresh. Bread, yogurt, jams, tomato sauces are home made. We loved our early morning cup of coffee and stroll in the tropical peaceful garden... with all sorts of birds!

There was a booklet in our room with very useful information on things to do.
Each day we left to explore the surroundings thanks to Shireen's tips and phone calls to arrange everything. We liked the way the hotel's owners promote a tourism which supports local businesses and communities. We went to Frenchman cove bay, a little paradise beach where the river melts into the sea. On day two, we swam and jumped in the river going up to Reach falls. Coming back to the hotel to get a herbal bath and a massage under the huge trees late afternoon is just... heaven. On our last day we went down the Rio Grande on a bamboo raft conducted by captain Howard. Belinda was there that day cooking on the riverside and we enjoyed her great jerk chicken!

It was our fist time in Jamaica. We know exactly where we'll come back .... far away from all-inclusive resorts and the madding crowd.

Room Tip: A superior room for the best view

We stayed at HMBH recently for a week, and had a lovely time. We had never been to Jamaica, and are not really the “big resort on the beach” kinds of folks. We much prefer small, less hectic, more mountain/jungle than beach, but with a certain level of amenities and excursions. We’ve stayed at eco-lodges in various locations in Central America and the Caribbean and were looking for something similar. HMBH advertises as “eco-chic boutique” and delivers on that promise. It is a small boutique hotel, with a gorgeous garden/grounds area (7+ acres, lovely setting for a morning stroll, lots of birds if that’s an interest), extremely friendly and helpful staff, great accommodations and delicious food. The hotel sits atop a hill offering great views from our balcony of the gardens and sea. They set up several excursions for us – birding (one of us is an avid birder) and non-birding – which went off without a hitch. In addition to the day trips, we also took advantage of the hotel’s free transportation to Frenchman’s Cove – a lovely small, local beach 5 minutes from the hotel by car. Port Antonia is also close, and we enjoyed a short afternoon walking the marketplace there after our river raft trip. Shireen (one of the owners) was wonderful and very attentive to us during our stay, greeting us every day at either breakfast or dinner, and offering suggestions for trips we might enjoy. The food was delicious and as good as any 5 star. I would highly recommend the HMBH and look forward a future stay.

Stayed: February 2016

Thank you for your positive feedback. Nice to know that both of you ( birder and non-birder) enjoyed yourselves and were able to find a good balance that suited both of you.
It was a pleasure having you and we hope the time here will help you to bridge the cold spell till spring comes along. Our best wishes for the Easter Holiday and a wonderful weekend.

This small boutique hotel is a must if one is seeking a quiet vacation, away from the crowds. Very friendly owners that put the guest in the first room.
Their staff is very nice and service minded.
Rooms nice and clean.
The food was outstanding, marvelous breakfasts and an excellent 3-course dinner.
The hotel is placed on a hill with a very nice view over the Caribbean Sea.
The hotel offers free transer and entry to a small but clean beach.
Mockingbird Hill exceeded our expectations and we must really recommend this amazing place for everyone who seeks the quiet away from the crowds.

Room Tip: Mockingbird Hill is overall quiet and very friendly. Some rooms got a little less explored views though to growth in the beautiful garden.

We had six nights at this very well appointed lodge on the northeast coast of Jamaica. Peace and tranquility in a beautiful location. Excellent rooms and a fabulous restaurant made for a memorable stay. All the staff at the Lodge are well trained, knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Breakfasts are an experience not to be missed and the dinner menu always has something to excite the palate - simply wonderful flavours in every dish! There is little not to like about this place - highly recommended.
