My Husband and I just returned from our 3rd stay at Xtabi - after several years of staying at other places in Negril, we now call Xtabi our Jamaican "home" for a few weeks each winter. We love the laid back atmosphere at Xtabi, the clean rooms and well tended grounds and the sense of safety and security. The bar... More

Stayed in a sea front cottage. All are wonderful - old-school Negril. Some are less private. Mine was very private, but close to the bar - but which was never a problem. Beautiful gardens. Good restaurant. Well located - easy to reach all cliff-side hotels, bars and restaurants, and the beach is 10 minutes away. One of the most beautiful... More

I've been to Negril about 14 times and stayed at Xtabi on the garden side twice. Both times my husband and I went with another couple, and we had a great time. We have stayed a few other places in the cliffs and we really enjoyed Xtabi's whole package - price, cleanliness, staff, view, food. This is not a fancy... More

We really liked this hotel but there doesn't seem to be much maintenance. Our toilet ran and they checked it out and said "jiggle the handle" which we did but didn't seem like a real fix but the worse part was the Air Conditioner that kept freezing up and then dripping water all over and making a racket so bad...

This is a simple, beautiful, fun place to stay. Jamaica loves its tourists! They go above and beyond to take care of them and I always felt safe and welcome. The staff is like family. I DID NOT get to enjoy the gorgeous caves beneath the bar because the rocks + hurricane force winds = certain disaster but I did... More

A current visitor at Xtabi - I couldn't be happier. Negril itself is a beautiful city, but this hotel is like a "once in a life time" experience, yet you'll love it so much, you know it won't be just once. There are staff members who have been here since the beginning, which speaks to the loyalty of the people... More

Spent a few days here and enjoyed it immensely. The grounds are well kept... spotless really... and the staff is friendly and professional. We had a small room overlooking the ocean. The view and the ambiance was great, We really enjoyed going across the street for a breathtaking view of the cliffs, and a stroll through the caves

What a great week I had at Xtabi. The swimming off the cliffs was so beautiful I was in at least 2 times a day. The cliffs were perfect for jumping and the snorkelling was awesome (I suggest snorkelling over to the cliffs of 3 Dives to see the lobster graveyard!). The staff were so friendly and genuinely happy. They... More

Xtabi is a great choice if you want to stay on the cliffs in Negril. We were wavering between the cliffs and the beach, but chose to stay on the cliffs for the peace and quiet.

I stayed at Xtabi for four nights in early November in a garden side superior room. The room was spacious and equipped with a small TV and A/C. The A/C worked great as it was still a little hot and humid. The TV had a good variety of channels. The bed was very firm and comfortable. The bathroom was basic... More
