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

Stayed at Xtabi in July 2014. A most relaxing week with no problems. This was my 6th time staying at this great cliff location. The rooms are clean and the service is outstanding. Very quiet and beautiful grounds. Perfect place for total relaxation. Thanks to Sharon, Devon, Paul, Michael and everyone else who always make my stays at Xtabi wonderful!!... More

A beautiful place to chill. Not the place to go if you like big pools lots of noise and entertainment If you like sitting watching the sunset, swimming off the rocks and chilling. With very friendly staff and good food. we did not have the wonderful looking rooms perched on the rocks overlooking the caribbean which looked fabulous. Our room... More

Just Returned from another amazing Jamaican adventure at Xtabi. We stayed in unit # 1 the week of Oct. 18th thru 25th. Been traveling there for over 20 years and really enjoy the tranquility of the cliffs. Xtabi looked to be in good shape and we were treated with respect our entire trip! We never had a bad meal anywhere... More

If you can handle not having air conditioning, opt for a bungalow on the cliffs over an apartment-style room - you will not be disappointed. The rooms are sparse, but comfortable. Most of the bungalows have a loft with an upstairs bed...and a magnificent view of the Caribbean. During the late spring into summer and early fall, it may be... More

No need for a big pool, games and entertainment: Just chill on your bungalow terrace above the crystal clear waters, jump in for snorcheling every now and then, and enjoy the great service of bar and restaurant.
