Head Cook and Bottle Washer at Hotel Mocking Bird Hill. Painter and Sculptor. Environmentalist
Barbara was a lovely and communicative guest.
I had an amazing time at Hotel Mockingbird Hill with Barbara and Shireen during their 15 year celebration. We stayed for a week and explored the real Jamaica from their eyes. We joined a river tour on a bamboo float, ate jerk chicken and crab on the beach, hiked around the surrounding towns, went with Barbara and Shireen to get supplies from a local organic supplier, etc. etc.
The hotel was a restful and luxurious retreat from the busy day activities. In addition to the beautiful main hotel area, Shireen has done a beautiful job landscaping the gardens behind the hotel, pouring in all of her love and energy. I'm sure it's even more improved since I've seen it last since the ladies always have big plans for making the hotel better whether its connecting to the community by empowering local women or implementing sustainable technologies like solar panels.
I'd love to visit again. Hotel Mockingbird Hill really feels like home! Can't recommend it more!
