Such a great place to stay and difficult to leave. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The Seaside rooms make for an exotic stay but might not have air-conditioning which can be burdensome. We enjoy staying in the gardenside rooms across the street. The cliffs are beautiful and the waters are fun to snorkel and explore. We stay here... More

I've been to Jamaica twice both times I have stayed at xtabi. The staff are amazing and they work hard for you. It's a amazing setting and just breathtaking , it's not luxurious. I use it as a base camp for my Jamaican adventures, I got to say Omar (bar), Michel (gardener) Devon (gardener) were realy helpful and friendly also... More

We stayed at Xtabi July 21-27. We had stayed on the cliffs last summer and had supper at Xtabi and decided to book through Expedia (great deal). We'd seen the resort so pretty much knew what to expect. It's an older resort but the location is amazing and we loved the fact that it was such a small resort. The... More

This resort has a lot of Jamaican charm on the cliff side, with wood carved spiral staircases and outdoor showers. Awesome views of magnificent sunsets. Snorkeling right out your door each day. Close to the Seven Mile Beach via taxi. The also have small air conditioned rooms located across the street for a lot less than the cliff side.

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
