"This 10-room inn, on a quiet hillside 600 feet above the shoreline, is like a family-run New England B&B that's been plopped among palms and bamboo."
Fodor's
"With only 10 rooms, some overlooking the sea and all with views of lush hillsides, Mocking Bird Hill is much more like a cozy bed-and-breakfast than a hotel." Full review
Travel + Leisure
"The restaurant at Hotel Mocking Bird Hill has become a destination unto itself, thanks to chef Melvin Laidlaw, who gets most of his produce from an on-site garden." Full review
Frommer's
"This charming, homey, and well-maintained inn competes effectively with hotels and resorts that are larger, grander, and sometimes, much more pretentious." Full review
