Xtabi is my go to rest and relaxation destination. Xtabi is real Jamaica with a wide selection of charming accommodations supported by a delightful and attentive staff. It has an excellent location on the cliffs of Negril's West End...central to most things while avoiding the hustle-bustle of 7-mile beach or Rick's Cafe. Not only is the view topshelf but the...

Pros The location of the oceanfront villas is like no other in the world (that we have seen) We were perched on top of a low cliff looking into the clear blue waters, really quite amazing We had a private stairway to the ocean (27 degrees Celsius!) and pretty good snorkeling. This was so enticing that we snorkelled twice a...

The hotel looks great on the outside. The room we had needs an update. I would prefer to spend a bit more and have better linens, lighting in both bathroom and bedroom was very dim, TV did not work. Apparently smoking is standard, the room smelled like an ashtray.......The hotel has so much potential. The staff was attentive and accommodating.

Have been going for years. It's sort of like going home. Where everybody knows your name...Rooms are great,. Idk the new air-conditioned but they always work. They need new bathroom towels but honestly who cares. Staff is fantastic. Omar, Kevin and George at the bar are great. All in all a 9. Get new towels.

Place is quite nice with decent location on the cliffs. However, staff in reception stole my card details and 500 USD were withdrawn in the US. Of course the person denied it when confronted. So PAY ONLY CASH IN THIS PLACE!

. We are not even sure how this could happen as my husband wakes at every little noise- we have been told by numerous people it is possible we were drugged or sprayed with a drug while we were sleeping. Which goes beyond shocking – imagine sleeping through a robbery where people came into your room while you slept. The...

This was one of our favorite experiences while visiting Negril, but I will HIGHLY recommend their air conditioned rooms! It's only a $60 difference than non AC and the most worthwhile money you'll ever spend. We spent two nights and three days snorkling around the cliffs (with equipment we rented on site) and eating the awesome food! Their restaurant had...

We ate at this restaurant a couple of times during our vacation. He food is great as is the atmosphere. You can walk down into the caves to see the water splashing up. You don't have to get wet. Carful of the slippery steps.

I have been coming to Jamaica for many years and find that every hotel property has its pluses and minuses. You'd be hard pressed to find fault with Xtabi. The rooms are reasonably priced and aside from perhaps being a little outdated they are very comfortable. The seaside rooms are charming, the outdoor showers awesome and the beds comfortable.
