Negril cliffs have always been one of my favorite places to visit. Took some friends and family for their first visit and everyone really enjoyed their stay.For 30 years I have stayed in this hotel at least three times, and everytime we are pleased . Great views, good food, and wonderful people.

George the Manager was great - even for a Liverpool fan! Lobster thermidor to die for. Reasonably priced, and we didn't need to book. Thanks to the taxi driver - O'neill - for suggesting it. Superb restaurant on a fantastic cliff top position.

Little cottage in the garden! That's #21. We were there for a week. Our little "house" at Xtabi has a charm of the 1970s style with wooden shutters and wooden walls-- so cute. Loved it! It has a tin roof (the only cottage with a tin roof), it's clean, and there are nice towels and soap provided. There is also... More

We traveled to Negril via our most gracious driver Astley with a few notable stops along the way. Having smoked fish with his friends at a hill top bar for the locals and then a more public establishment further down the road. These wonderful segways along the way brought us to our destination of Xtabi. It is a most peaceful... More

I had lunch here and spent some time on their patio and visited the caves. It was a lovely spot. I am hoping to stay at the hotel in the near future. It was great food and great service. I met a lot of people who were there just for the afternoon. Seems to be a popular hang out.

Beautifully located on the West End with great swimming and snorkeling opportunities. We had a garden room which is cheaper than the individual cottages with their own access to the sea, but clean and comfortable. Staff are friendly and welcoming without being over-zealous. Service in the oceanfront front restaurant is fast and efficient and the food is good. A 20... More

My husband and I stayed in another hotel on 7 Mile Beach, but we wanted to see the famous Negril cliffs as well. After doing some research, we took at route taxi from the beach to the cliffs (route taxis are $1 by law, but be sure to confirm before you get in one!). We had our taxi drop us... More

It has been 15yrs since my first stay at Xtabi, this trip was my 14th stay. Ventured away once, only to be disappointed. The laid back vibe, happy accommodating staff, beautiful views, food and drinks (dirty banana...yuuuum) will always bring me back. We have been staying in cottage #3 for a few years now. If you require some afternoon shade,... More
