How to get there

If you are coming from Kingston : To leave Kingston ask at the front desk of your hotel for directions to Waterloo Road. Drive up Waterloo Road past Devon House, straight on past the Canadian High Commission to Upper Waterloo Road until you come to a T-junction. At the lights, turn right on to Shortwood Road. Continue on Shortwood Road until it forks. Follow the main road taking the left fork on to Olivier Road.

At the traffic lights (past the golf course) turn right on to Constant Spring Road which leads you out of town. On the way the road forks at one point - follow the curve of the main road to the right and continue on Long Lane up the hill to Stony Hill.

Drive straight through Stony Hill Square on to the A3 otherwise commonly known as the Junction Road which takes you to the North Coast along the Wag water River . As you reach the North Coast at Agualta Vale the road forks just before a gas station. Stay on the right. A few meters further you come to a T-Junction. Turn right here to head east.
Follow the road until you get to Buff Bay. As you drive in to the centre of this town, the main road curves to the left past a gas station. Follow the main road further east until you come to Port Antonio.

The main road takes you to the centre of the town. You will face the clock tower in front of the old Court House in the town centre. The one-way street system will direct you to the left of this building between the gas station and court house to the sea front. Turn right and continue along the coast out of town direction East towards Frenchmans Cove.
You will pass 2 major landmarks. First the Trident Villas and Hotels on your left and after you drive along the next cove, you will pass a large white palatial looking building on your right ( The Jamaica Palace Hotel ). Continue another 200 meters. Turn right at the first right after the Jamaica Palace hotel Mocking Bird Hill is signposted here.

***Take the road uphill. It is a 5 minute drive uphill and on the way up the road forks twice. Each time take the side going up-hill. The asphalted road actually ends at the property
As you take the last curve to the left you will drive up to the reception area. The parking lot is straight ahead.
If you come from the east along the St. Thomas south coast from Kingston, then drive past Blue Lagoon, San San and Frenchmans Cove towards the town of Port Antonio. You will then pass through the village of Drapers. As you leave the village, the hotel is signposted on your right and then again at the actual turn off, which is about 100 m. further down. Take the first sharp left hand turn uphill. Then continue as described from *** onwards.
