Mocking Bird Hill

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.

Travelers staying at Mocking Bird Hill can anticipate a truly memorable experience, as this 5-star lodge is considered to be one of the best accommodations in the entire region.

Located near the center of Drapers, Mocking Bird Hill offers a warm welcome to customers who are interested in staying in this village or somewhere close by. If you're wondering, the center of Port Antonio is two and a half miles (four kilometers) to the west.


The 10 rooms at the Hotel Mocking Bird Hill combine elegance and comfort, at an affordable price. All rooms are decorated with locally handmade furniture comprised of sustainable woods, and the fabrics, art, and shuttered windows give the rooms a very tropical feel.

Guests staying in the Garden View Rooms can sit on the balcony and enjoy amazing views of the surrounding flora and fauna; the romantic Sea View Deluxe Rooms are perfect for honeymooners because of the privacy they afford guests and the lovely views they provide; and Superior Rooms are located on the upper level of the hotel and offer breathtaking views of Port Antonio and the Caribbean Sea.

Mocking Bird Hill has a total of just 10 rooms, so we classify it as a very small property. Accordingly, it appeals to visitors who enjoy a relatively intimate setting.
