Situated amidst lush tropical gardens in the verdant hills in the outskirts of Port Antonio, the eco-friendly Hotel Mocking Bird Hill is a great place to get away from it all. Guests can chill-out in their cozy rooms while taking in lovely vistas, go for a walk through the 6.5 acres of botanically diverse gardens, enjoy complimentary tea in the afternoon on the hotel terrace, or venture outside the hotel grounds for a number of activity options.
