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 a relaxing vacation-- however, if you enjoy luxury-- this is not the place for you. The service is incredibly spotty-- the pool is sketchy (not sure if there is chlorine) and don't expect ANY service when in the pool area. The rooms are nice enough-- no TVs, but the authentic Jamaican feel is nice. The food at the Xtabi restaurant is DELICIOUS... the best food we had on our trip, and the bartenders are very nice and accommodating (when you are in their site) otherwise they forget about you. The price for food and beverages at Xtabi is reasonable, and actually a lot cheaper than what you would expect from a Caribbean destination. The front desk and matinance crew is OUTSTANDING -- extremely helpful and friendly. Overall, we had a great time, and have no real complaints. However, I am more of a beach person so I most likely will not be returning.
