Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was the first time that we stayed at Xtabi and we had a very good experience in our 10 day visit. I'll start off by saying that we chose this hotel because of the amazing location; probably the best location to stay in our combined 7 trips to Jamaica. We were also planning this trip on a budget and...

We stayed in room 17. I would not recommend it only because the bed was very uncomfortable and the noise from...

We went to Xtabi for an afternoon of snorkeling and lunch and the cliffs did not disappoint! The bar/restaurant overlook the beautiful Caribbean Sea. There are stairs that lead down to the water or you can jump in from one of the two cement decks. You will find lots of coral and fish in this area. The caves were fun...

Sixth stay at resort over 12 years. Adequate accommodations. Nothing luxurious, but cottages are comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful. The setting is spectacular with gorgeous unobstructed sunsets. Getting into the water requires jumping from heights of 3-15(!) feet or climbing down a ladder. Due for updates/paint.

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...

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.
