We visited Xtabi from November 21-28. We booked in Janauary so I spent many night reading all the reviews and doing my research, when we arrived, we were not disappointed. The property is quite amazing and cottage 4 is so very quaint. Omar and Kevin were very good, but the true shining stars were Sharon( our housekeeper), the groundskeepers, Michael...

The owner and staff are awesome, easy to deal with and very friendly. The restaurant on site is quite good, a staple on every reach.....I love their fried...

This looked great on the website and lived up to my expectations! The location just on the cliffs, with a private swimming area and clean beautiful water. Great ocean front room, rooms were a bit dated and fan a bit noisy but overall this will always be a favourite of mine. Staff were good for a chat and helped us...

We were traveling as a party of 6 so, we reserved Seaside Cottage #1 and 2 Superior rooms. Everything went very well and as planned. Novine handled most of our reservation process and was truly a delight. It felt like Omar was our personal bartender /breakfast friend and Michael does a great job with the maintenance of the grounds. Even...

After many years at a nearby hotel, we finally made the jump to stay at Xtabi this year. So glad we did! We had one of the cliffside cottages and it couldn't have exceeded my expectations more. The staff is delightful, the grounds are lovely and well kept. The restaurant and bar staff took amazing care of us, too. For...

I've been coming to the west end since a baby and have stayed at rock house, heartbeat and many places on the beach. However, Xtabi is still the best! The rates, the people and THE CLIFFS are all here. If you are looking for a peaceful getaway without the hustle the book Xtabi. The resort is situated in its own...

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Xtabi when we visited 19th of August through the 27th 2016. We had ocean view cottage #3 which was very nice with a comfortable bed and AC (very important). The clear blue water was excellent and if you are brave enough you can cliff dive from the cliffs outside of the restaurant....

Been to Negril now 5 times now always at different place. Xtabi was great! Bar staff, Omar and Kevin are the best. Stayed in Hut 6 with A.C. and the view was fantastic!

I visited a friend staying at the resort and I fell in love with the place.
