First time in Jamaica - we booked Xtabi for 9 nights in a gardenview room. Xtabi arranged transfer from the airport. Even though our flight was delayed, the driver was right outside waiting. Check-in was pleasant. Room was better than in the photos - very clean and secure. Food was excellent, and my husband is a very picky eater! Staff... More

Affordable, clean, and the best snorkeling right from your cottage. The food was great, and people come from all over Negril to snorkel and swim from the bar. The staffwere helpful, and it was a great quiet place to stay. Bring bug repellant. No a/c in our cottage but the fan worked well, a great breeze at night.

We booked for 3 nights at this resort via Expedia and checked out after our very 1st night. That's how horrible the resort is, I wonder if it is right to call it a resort in the first place. It is just a one star dingy place to stay. 1) Light - The rooms are dark, decor and furniture are... More

I have been a regular visitor to Negril since the 1990's. I was staying at the Samsara one year, and discovered many great places in Negril's West End, above the cliffs. I found Xtabi, ate and drank there and found that it was one of the greatest locations in the world. (I have been to India, Thailand, Mexico, Turkey and... More

Stayed for a week. Had a great time. Our accommodation was across the road from the cliffs but that didn't matter at all. The garden was very beautiful. The pool was nice to cool down in. The cliff area was perfect for a snorkel and a bit of cliff jumping. Make sure you check out the cave area too. The... More

I've not stayed at Xtabi Hotel but having gone to Negril over 20 times since the 80's I've spent many an afternoon at Xtabi, The food at the Restaurant is fantastic and reasonably priced. You can lay out on their deck, go snorkeling in the ocean, order lunch and they'll come get you when it's ready. No need to sit... More

It's on the sea cliffs in Negril with good access straight in for swimming and snorkelling. The rooms are basic and came with ac. There is no kettle or coffee making facilities. You can rent a fridge for 6 dollars a night. You have to pay for every meal including breakfast all off the menu. I found it expensive and... More
