Very nice little resort the first few days here. Clean rooms, staff is pleasant and helpful and the grounds are lovely. However, their policy on pot smoking (as most of the places in Jamaica) is that although it is illegal, they look the other way, ask you to be "discreet". Personally, I don't care if the other guests smoke it,... More

After vacationing in Jamaica several times, this was my first stay on the West End Cliffs. My garden room across the street was adorable with an outside shower. It was clean, had a little table on the patio, and plenty of chairs around the pool. The food was good, especially the breakfast. How can you not enjoy a wonderful cup... More

We stayed 2 nites at Xtabi in a garden room across the street for $115 per night. Room was ok but locks on doors were sketchy and saw no security. Didn't sleep for two nights but maybe security is not needed as cliffs are more remote. Food was good and views unbelievable. The caves underneath were so cool! You can... More

Greetings, I have read your comments, and I appreciate you taking the time to post. I am sorry you did not sleep well, I would like to advise you that our security wears plan cloths, and moves around regularly, I personally watch the watchmen every night . I do agree that the cliffs are more private than the beach, but... More

Xtabi is the epitome of paradise - simply stated. The rooms and cottages are unique and beautifully decorated. We had a sunk in shower/tub that felt like a little pool inside our cottage bathroom and some friends we met had an outdoor shower. Not all rooms have a/c - we didn't and i am happy (although with initial hesitance) because... More

This is our third stay at Xtabi. We stay for two weeks and it is always the most pleasant and relaxing two weeks of our year (other than some of the taxi rides LOL).

Describing the Xtabi resort is quite hard. I'm sure the cottages on the seaside of the compound (directly near the Xtabi Restaurant, which is very good, see distinct review) are very nice, deliver a great view over the cliffs and serve as an adventure on its own. However during our 3 nights stay we had one of the garden side... More

9 days we stayed @ Xtabi and loved very minute. The location is magnificent matched by the most attentive and charming staff. The snorkeling at your door step is terrific. Xtabi is not on the beach it is on the cliffs which we choose for the hassle free environment.

My boyfriend and I stayed here in Room 23 right next to the pool. We had a great weekend at Xtabi. The rooms were clean and comfortable, this particular room doesn't have a/c or tv but we didn't need either. The fan above the bed worked great and it was plenty cool at night. We ate several meals at the... More

First and foremost, if you are a fan of the beach, Xtabi is NOT the resort for you. It is nested among the cliffs at the end of seven mile beach with NO beach access (you are able to swim in the ocean off the cliffs, but can be scary, especially for a family). Xtabi has everything you need for... More

West End Hotel right on the cliffs. We stayed on the garden side for the 2nd time. Convenient to wake up, have breakfast , and grab some snorkel gear for 10 dollars and jump off some cliffs. Depending on what your in the mood for, the cliffs are more for the mellow, quiet, relaxed people. To get to seven mile... More
