Qualidade do sono
Lugar excelente tanto para dormir quanto para curtir o feriado
Avaliou em 8 de Abril de 2019
Quarto excelente com vista espetacular para o mar e uma estrutura com trilhas, matas, decks, restaurante, piscina, área de lazer. É aquele tipo de lugar que vale a pena tanto para dormir e conhecer a cidade quanto para passar dias de descanso.
Um hotel simples e para amantes da natureza
Avaliou em 15 de Janeiro de 2018
Trata-se de um hotel para amantes da natureza e isso deve ser levado MUITO em consideração na hora de fechar a sua reserva. Se você está procurando um hotel eco-friendly com uma pegada bastante 'roots', muita tranquilidade, muita natureza e não liga para luxo, esse hotel talvez seja uma excelente opção para você. Mas não era o meu caso. As instalações são bastante simples. O hotel é bem menos bonito do que as fotos da internet mostram. O hotel é localizado realmente dentro da mata nativa. A iluminação à noite é precária e é não é nada confortável andar do estacionamento até o quarto no meio da mata e sem luz. Você ouve literalmente todos os barulhos da natureza de dentro do quarto. Não há ar condicionado e há muitos mosquitos, então repelente é item obrigatório, mas o hotel não fornece. Aliás, o hotel não tem nem para vender, o que eu achei uma falha grave. Vale destacar, entretanto, que o staff é bastante atencioso e o restaurante é muito bom. Jantamos uma das noites no hotel e a comida era realmente boa e com um quê de sofisticação. O café da manhã é bom. A vista do último andar do hotel é muito bonita, já que você vê a floresta e ao fundo o mar. Certamente é um hotel excelente para quem está querendo uma experiência de sustentabilidade, muita tranquilidade em meio à natureza, com boa gastronomia e não liga para sofisticação. Não era o meu caso na oportunidade. Se você gostar de natureza mas não abrir mão de conforto e um pouco de sofisticação, considere investir um pouco mais e ficar em outro hotel, como por exemplo o Geejam.
This is horrible

This place shouldnt be open its a scam and the real owners are sitting in germany clueless to the fact that the manager is NOT i repeat NOT holding this hotel upp to standars. The rooms are NOT being sanitized properly according to covid-19 sanitation standards. They are NOT complying to the sanitary rules the industry demands. They have a watersystem that cleans the water so its drinkable but they have no clue of witch filter goes in what tube carbonfilter goes right or left??? So drinkable water NO so you really cant drink it and be100%sure plus there is NO running water so if u want to wash take a shower u need to go down to the rainwatercollectors and get a bucket to your room??!!?? Forget about having the fan on at night they have a huge electrical malfunction that costs around 200us dollars to fix but they really cant afford it (heard the manager Angela talk to electrical repair company) so shes trying to get a bargain?!?! For the electricity?¡?¡ that should be common sense to get fixed immediately!!!! I wonder if the owners know of this!!?? So with no electricity no running water, wich means no pumps running means a messy pool really messy not up to par and yeah you cant flush and if u need to well i told you about the bucket right!!?? The staff are getting payed around 100-150us dollars a month (thats modern day slavery to me!!) beacuse as the manager Angela puts it "well they get to live here". The manager Angela also has bookings that she dont even tell the owners about todays date is September the 8th 2021 and just now 3 guests local guests checked in needing 2 rooms the manager charged them 200us dollars a night per room ( also heard her talking to somebody from jamaica who wanted to make a reservation for some music producer) she then pockets the earnings ,do the staff get anything for it NO!! Again wonder if the owners know anything about this?The manager is a scamartist! We feel sorry for anybody that books a night at this hotel its awful the way they showcase there diplomas about beeing an eco-friendly hotel and then have a firepit in the jungle were they burn everything that doesnt go in the compost. Wooow its that what u call eco friendly??? And they charge you to, between 200-300 for a night NO restaurant open nothing for sale NOTHING!!So you wonder how i have accumulated so much knowledge about how this facility is beeing run beacuse we came here as volunteers we came with good intentions wanting to help spent a lot of money to get here to realize that it was all a lie. were leaving tomorrow after being here 14 days in total,13 days to much if u ask me and thuru all our travels the last 5months and we have been to many places helping as volunteers we must say this was absolutely our biggest mistake. So i really think the owners should take a good look at what they are facing or they should just CLOSE the place. Hope evrybody is staying safe be well!
Eco-friendly Birthday Brownie Points
Avaliou em 6 de Janeiro de 2021
Nestled in the beautiful hills of Portland, this hideaway hotel really surprised me and my partner. It was a birthday celebration that was made extra special by the accommodating support of the management and staff. The service was really exceptional and made for a wonderful stay.
Not only did we learn to birdwatch, but we also enjoyed delicious meals including a specially curated birthday dinner. As this was pre-COVID, we were able to engage with other visitors at dinner and breakfast which was an intimate touch.
We truly felt special and enjoyed the experience that was provided.
Beauty without the Bells and Whistles
Avaliou em 17 de Março de 2020
Located on the foothills of the Blue Mountains just outside of Port Antonio, Mocking Bird Hill is notable for its hard to reach but beautiful location and grounds.
It is a Eco-Hotel so forget about air conditioning - the evenings are often breezy and there were no windows, just slotted plantation style window and porch doors that allow the breeze (and mosquitoes) in - so use the provided mosquito netting at night or expect a few bites. If the night gets hot and there is no breeze, ceiling fans will help air circulation.
Breakfast is mostly fruit and bread with great coffee and juice. I went on a birding trip with a private guide, leaving early in the morning, and staff packed a great breakfast picnic for me! I was very impressed.
Besides the swimming pool, not much for children to do, but fine for couples. Dinners in the restaurant were hit-or-miss and generally not impressive. The true allure of this spot is in it’s beautiful gardens - numerous winding trails invite birdwatching and peaceful meditation.
The staff were friendly and helpful. Transportation from airports in Kingston or Montego Bay can be very expensive or cumbersome - renting and self-driving the 4 hours from Montego is cheaper but not for the faint of heart as rules of the road are almost non-existent and there are some dangerous switch-backs. The road up to the hotel is also fairly rough.
Also, I strongly advise exchanging your money to Jamaican Dollars before reaching Port Antonio as many vendors in the area will take advantage of tourists who only carry US$. We often found ourselves in issues because we didn’t prepare well with local currency.
If you like things a bit less touristy, love gardens and birds, this is a beautiful location for a few nights.
