With intoxicating views of the Blue Mountains and the stunning beaches of Port Antonio only a 10-minute drive away, Hotel Mocking Bird Hill is a hillside paradise in Jamaica’s lush northeasterly enclave.

The hotel feels remote and is a 20-minute taxi ride to Port Antonio town. Take advantage of the free five-minute shuttle ride to the nearby white-sand beaches of Frenchman’s Cove, relax by the small on-site low-chlorine pool, or enjoy a treatment in the Massage Gazebo.

Surrounding the resort are nearly seven acres of landscaped gardens, which are a magnet for birds, making this one of the best places in Jamaica for birdwatchers.

With just 10 rooms, the hotel prides itself on personalized service and hospitality, leaving gift baskets in every room filled with take-home treats and memories of the stay. Mosquito nets are provided and every room has an outside space with a hammock overlooking the gardens, ocean or lush hillside. Expect décor awash in whites and blues and a breezy, laid-back Caribbean style, with locally made furniture from bamboo and sustainable wood. Luxury Suites are particularly suited to families, with a separate living room area and sofa bed, and two bathrooms. Wi-Fi is complimentary.

The gourmet Mille Fleurs restaurant serves Caribbean and European fusion cuisine on its terrace overlooking the ocean, with a focus on locally sourced ingredients including the hotel’s own vegetable and herb garden. It is an excellent choice for vegetarians and vegans, including a weekly Meatless Mondays menu.

  • "The restaurant at Hotel Mocking Bird Hill has become a destination unto itself, thanks to chef Melvin Laidlaw, who gets most of his produce from an on-site garden" -- Travel + Leisure
