Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Not stayed here just decided to go for dinner as we were staying locally. The views are great but the food less so. Firstly what restaurant doesn’t have white wine, when serving fish on the menu. Also no Diet Coke or orange juice but we did get warm water beer and sprite so not all bad. The meal was average, starters were okay, nothing special but the mains were just a piece of fish two potatoes and big pieces of ginger. A total rip off for $95 plus the restaurant is separate to the bar $14.5 so they bring you two bills and it’s cash only. When it came to desert we weren’t asked if we wanted some we were told “you don’t want desert do you” 🤣 waitress tried to take away my drink that was half full and obviously wasn’t trained in waitressing. Such a shame as it would have been a lovely place to have a nice meal. If nothing else it reminded us a bit of faulty towers.

We had a wonderful week at the mockingbird hotel. Immersed in 7 acres of lush gorgeous jungle. It was peaceful and re-energizing. Absolutely gorgeous unspoilt and almost deserted beaches and falls nearby. The staff at mockingbird were incredibly kind and helpful. Angela organized a wonderful hike into the blue mountains for us at the last minute. The cherry on the cake was the food. Michele, the new italian chef, is absolutely amazing. We ate so well that we didn’t go anywhere else the entire time we were there.!The place could use a refreshing facelift but it was clean and the beds were very comfortable. We had the whole place to ourselves for most of the week and slept to the sounds of nature which was lovely- until a group of guests showed up and it got a little noisy as there are no windows (only shutters). Overall a wonderful magical place.

Set in beautiful gardens, hotel mockingbird hill was certainly an escape and a place of calm. As an eco friendly hotel you can also be reassured that you won't be negatively impacting the wonderful nature that surrounds you. There is a restaurant that will serve breakfast which at the time of our stay which was to be paid for separately in cash. The nearest alternative was a 25-30 minute drive (19USD taxi) into Port Antonio. There were a couple of hiccups to our stay. We had planned a number of excursions to explore the country further but we weren't informed of the correct prices for these (we were given written pre-pandemic prices then charged a higher price after the event) and the quoted driving distances were underestimated also due to poor road quality. In regards the pricing we were able to flag this issue with the staff who graciously resolved the situation. If intending on embarking on any excursions I would suggest clarifying both price and travelling time before agreeing to anything to save any head or heart ache. Similarly the Frenchman's cove beach pass and free shuttle is no longer provided by the hotel complimentarily as per the written information we were provided with so please be aware to clarify this. The drivers associated with the hotel were all lovely and overall we felt very well looked after.

For anyone interested in birds, peace and quiet, the real Jamaica away from resorts, and great beaches, Hotel Mocking Bird Hill is the place to be. I went with my 7-year-old daughter and we had the trip of a lifetime together. Getting there is not for the faint of heart (do _not_ attempt to drive there at night from Montego Bay or Kingston!) because the roads are not great quality and map apps can lead to some confusing wrong turns. That said, the staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautiful and can be enjoyed from four levels as well as on the grounds of the 7-acre gardens (where I saw half of Jamaica's endemic bird species). The breakfasts and dinners offered by Wilkes Seafood are delicious, healthy, and veggie friendly. The Blue Mountains (great birding, coffee, views) and the John Crow Mountains (great birding) are an easy drive away. And Boston Beach, Winnifred Beach, Frenchman's Cove, and other fantastic spots for swimming, lounging, water activities, and trying local foods abound. Seeing the sun set over the Blue Mountains or watching a rainbow form into the Caribbean from the canopy seating are experiences too beautiful for words to describe.

I just returned from a week long stay at Hotel Mockingbird Hill and it was spectacular! After spending a week in Negril and at another location in Port Antonio, I was excited to check into Hotel Mockingbird Hill for a week of relaxation and bird watching. This ended up being the perfect place to rest, rejuvenate, and see lots of birds! I also had delicious meals from their new restaurant menu (Chef Kion is spectacular) and Anise always provided great service. I am lucky enough to be able to work remotely, so I had to work two days of my stay. I was a bit nervous about the internet, but it was stable enough to support me being on VPN and having multiple calls a day. Strangely, the upload speed is faster than the download speed here (most places its the opposite) so if you are trying to stream video or games all day you might have an issue. This is not the place for that though! This did end up being a VERY relaxing place to work - Anise recommended the most beautiful desk in the photo - and I would recommend it. As the upload speed was high I had no issues in my meetings and people said my connection was stable. As another reviewer mentioned this would be a great place to write a book or work on a project thay requires concentration. Once I got my obligatory two days of work out of the way I spent tons of time exploring the gardens. These are the true highlight of the property and I spent several hours just walking the grounds. The hotel is also very close to Frenchmans Cove and multiple other beaches, but I would not recommend walking at this time due to the dust of the roads at the bottom of the hill. Its a short drive and there are taxis once you get to the bottom of the hill - which is an easy walk. As multiple other people mentioned - yes - there is construction going on and it makes the journey here a bit slower. In my opinion you can DEF do them without a 4x4 you just need to take your time. One other comment I wanted to address was about the bugs! Yes! You are in a tropical climate and in an area with lush vegetation! There will be bugs! Bring some bug spray and youll be fine! I stayed at a 5 star hotel in the area that cost 3x the price and they had mosquitos too! Its unavoidable and dont go into nature if you dont actually like nature lol! Thank you again to all the staff at Hotel Mockingbird Hill that made my stay do wonderful. I will be returning soon!

The proximity of the hotel to recognized birding hot-spots was one reason for staying here, but the grounds themselves were truly wonderful to explore or simply to enjoy via overviews from the comfortable upper-level porch. Welcome signage in the rooms encourages guests to pay attention to water conservation and to minimizing the use of non-recyclables. Angela and the staff were so helpful, and the meals we had onsite were beautifully presented and very tasty (especially the coconut curries).

This was my first visit to Jamaica, and it was as part of a group of 11 people with birding guides. Our first 2 nights were in Montego Bay and then we drove a few hours to reach this magical place. Angela, the manager, was very gracious and everyone who worked on the property were helpful and friendly. My room overlooked the forest trails and the ocean and there were even more stunning views from the upper decks of the main hotel building. The bed was comfortable and I slept under the mosquito netting (on the king sized 4-poster bed) so that I could leave the lovely shutter-doors open to the night sky and sounds. A fantastic getaway from screens and electronics, and lovely flowers and well-maintained nature trails for hiking, birding and photography right on the grounds!!

I stayed there for 4 nights with a birding group. It was ideal for birding as the grounds are just lovely with native vegitation and filled with birds. It is too bad they don't serve breakfast earlier than 8 AM though. That is much too late for birders. Dinner was excellent and the chef is just incredible! My room was palatial and so light and airy. The view of the Caribbean Sea from the hotel is amazing.

Management very difficult. We left early so we could enjoy our vacation Worth it to lose money rather than have more of a very bad experience. The property is beautiful but it is for sale and the absentee owners just want to sell

Such a relief to arrive at this charming small hotel with efficient sympatico front of house, elegant, airy rooms complete with comfy beds and mosquito nets. Food ordered in from local caterer along with beers. The fine extensive gardens teem with wildlife , lots of birds, a mongoose and delightful lizards. Sound track on Sundays start with spirited preaching from local church followed by vinyl Sunday reggae. Rest of the time bird song, and at night cicadas and frogs. All very relaxing. We will prioritise a further visit next time we are in Jamaica.
