We have stayed here many times. Love the location. Always stay on the cliff. The lobster eggs benedict is one of my favorite three breakfasts in the world. Appears to be a little deferred maintenance, not all the stairs and ladders are in good repair. But still a lovely place to stay and enjoy the sea.

A unique small independent Jamaican owned boutique resort. Cabanas that are located on the cliffs offer one of the most beautiful locations in all of Negril. We stayed on the garden side across the street. The upstairs air conditioned rooms are simple but quite adequate for an active outdoor vacation. The value of the resort is the kindness and grace...

We have stayed at several places in Negril, but Xtabi is now the place that keeps us coming back. Situated on the Cliff side of Negril, it is just a short walk to the center of town and a quick ride to the beach. We love the snorkeling and jumping into the seas off the cliffs and visit the beach... More

This used to be my second home in JA before I bought my second home in JA! They have a variety of villas and rooms all with various levels of comfort. But I didn't stay here for the room. I stayed here for the vibe! And the FOOD! And the STAFF! You don't stay in Xtabi. Xtabi stays in you!... More

I have been going to Negril for about 28 years and have stayed at numerous places. I have gone alone, with friends and family. By far, Xtabi is my favorite place to stay. Since I discovered it, I have only stayed there. There are a variety of accommodations suited to varying budgets and I've tried them all. I've stayed on... More

Just returned from Negril on a visit with eight friends and we spent the last half of our week at Xtabi - my 9th time. A great small resort on the rocks with an awesome swimming cove and some cool caves under the property. The staff is great and always helpful. The restaurant serves a good breakfast and lunch and...

We stayed in Xtabi Resort in December 2013 and it was recommended to us by our friend. We rented a room first and after 2 days exchanged that for one of the cottages on the cliffs. That was the best move! Private balcony with the gorgeous sun sets everyday! Private entrance to the water - just on the reef where... More

I really enjoyed this little hideaway. It was perfect for my low keyed getaway mood. Located in the west end of Negril this small cottage style resort was well worth the price. I went just before peak season so prices were much more reasonable. I stayed in cottage 5 which was just private enough to make me feel I had... More

I stayed here after my brother recommended the place. The room was just o.k. but the real reason to stay is the location. The cliffs and the caves on the property are AWESOME! Watch the local kids cliff dive then grab your mask and snorkel around the caves to feel like a pirate. I ate several meals at the restaurant... More
