My fiance and I stayed at Xtabi from July4-July9, 2014 and it was absolutely everything we imaged and MORE! We stayed in cottage 1 (highly recommend and the most private). The views are out of this world, the food was fresh and consistent, and the staff is so friendly and welcoming. They made us feel safe and at home. I... More

Staying here for the location alone is worth it! It is right across from the cliffs with 2 snorkeling platforms, a bat cave, and a cliff jumping spot. We had a blast spending our time snorkeling in the ocean [which we rented equipment from someone who worked there] and the waters are crystal clear and the views are beautiful. The... More

The cliff side of this resort is beautiful! Right off the cliffs and nothing but ocean view! The swimming pool here is nothing at all to brag about, felt like bath water and not very clean, but who needs the pool when you have the ocean to swim in right there. Very nice and clean rooms, the shower was outside,... More

I have stayed @ X-Tabi, on and off over the last 25 years. I really enjoyed when Janet ran the restaurant, and I miss her sweet and personable demeanor. I got to X-Tabi early in the morning,(June 3rd) and I had to move right in, because I had "stuff" for my mini frig. Room #21 is spacious, and I like... More

This review is based only on the Xtabi as a swimming location. Wonderful and beautiful for the experienced swimmer ONLY. Three different area the check out, two platforms and a cave entry, WoW. The beer is pricey just FYI and open from 8am - 11pm to non-hotel guest.....enjoy.

I visit Negril annually as an independent traveller. I usually go for small basic properties but was travelling with my son and his partner so went for Xtabi. Set out on both sides of the road with chalets/rooms/gardens and the swimming pool on one side and bar/restaurant/sun decks on the other. This is not an issue as it takes seconds... More

The most important thing to mention here is the excellent people who work here. The staff is so nice. In particular, Abby, Kevin, Omar, Laconia, Kimberly, George, and the cleaning maids made the stay so much fun. The views from the cliffs are incredible. Some of the best restaurants I've ever been to are nearby. So is a convenience store.... More

If you can find a safe, reasonably clean, ocean front hotel in the Caribbean for $65 (USD) per night, please respond to this review and let me know. That $65 price at Xtabi includes A/C and TV with a balcony or porch looking into the flowery-green, bird-filled courtyard. Rock-bottom cheapest room? $50/night! We were there for the last week of...

Xtabi is a nice hotel on the cliffs of Negril. Gardenside rooms are across the street from the ocean and are cheaper than the rooms on the water. You don't hear any noise from the road and are a great value!! The rooms on the water are cottages and offer awesome views of the ocean! The restaurant has a great... More
