It is with a heavy heart that we had to close our doors last March. Finally, with vaccination programs being rolled out in all countries, we are happy to re-open again.
As coronavirus restrictions begin to ease, the Team at Mockingbird Hill has been considering how we can best adjust to the new health and safety requirements and still provide a highly personalized holiday experience.
As the world begins to gradually reopens, we would like to welcome guests interested in exploring and discovering the many natural attractions of Jamaica away from the main tourist resort areas. We understand that in these difficult times, there are challenges for travelers and recognize that you will understandably have a heightened awareness for your health and safety especially when it comes to your choice of accommodations.
Our team is focused on adapting to meet the needs of all our visitors. Our efforts must ensure the wellbeing of our customers, our team, and the community of which we are part.
We have therefore decided to change our services and amenities to address the concerns of guests and ( delete : will be reopening our doors with) have adjusted our services that to minimize contact between guests and associates while maintaining customer service. We can provide a very personalized service experience as guests see the same few staff every day and the staff can quickly adapt to guests and anticipate their wishes.
Intimate boutique properties provide an opportunity for a vacation experience that eliminates all the stress involved in being in a new environment with strangers, which is important during the COVID-19 situation and will continue to be so, while meeting your health and wellbeing standards. You can enjoy a non-restrictive, safe vacation with the exclusive rental of the facilities as a private villa providing you with much more space and privacy without other guests.
Value is becoming increasingly important and we want to address this aspect as well. With the reduced service ( only pre-ordered Continental breakfast, which we can also provide as a packed breakfast-to-go), we can offer excellent value and also minimize personal contact.
With these changes, we can easily comply with the best health practices and still provide our guests with an outstanding vacation experience while protecting their health. Mockingbird Hill has developed a detailed reopening plan with all the protective measures recommended by the health authorities.
Even after travel bans are lifted, Maintaining a healthy physical distance from others is easy in an intimate retreat like Mockingbird Hill. You are likely to have the pool to yourself and can enjoy the perch on your own to enjoy the sunsets.
