It is the second time we go to Mocking Bird Hill and the experience has been, once again, wonderful.
The staff is efficient, makes a special effort to accommodate our requests, but most of all they are very welcoming and make you feel special. The owner takes time to discuss with you what best corresponds to your wishes.
Our stay was punctuated by nice attentions, like offering to serve us coffee at the swimming pool when we were having a swim at 7am, preparing an extra plate of fruits for our 2 year old, leaving a small gift every day in our room, offering to organize various activities, offering a complimentary drink on the beautiful terrace overlooking the hill when you arrive, etc.
The rooms are cute, very clean, spacious and personal. We immediately felt at home on the entire property. Everything is beautifully decorated, with magnificent bouquets of fresh exotic flowers put on your table every day. There are various 'hidden' spots on the property and in the luxuriant garden where you have the feeling to be completely alone.
But what we most liked was the commitment the owners have made to preserve the environment (solar panes are installed on the roof, the food is local and organic, they offer 2 vegetarian course per night, plus the meatless Mondays), to help the local community (products are made by local people, they support a local school, a reforestation projects, etc.)
It is indeed generally pretty expensive, but the economy room is much cheaper (and still very nice) and the meals cost the same as in Kingston, but are of a much much higher quality!
It is a worthwhile touristic and human experience!
