For an excellent very exclusive place to stay try Xtabi. Located on the far west end of Negril on the Cliffs. I have been staying here off and on from 83 to 2013 and it's our favorite spot. Great sea side cottages with caves. The restarunt serves excellent food with excellent service. Get those flags back up at the bar,...

Although I didn't stay at Xtabi, I came here 3 or 4 times last week because I enjoyed it so much. Xtabi will allow non-guests to enjoy their property, but please by a drink or some food as a "thanks". Xtabi sits in a beautiful locations along the cliffs, looking out over the Caribbean Sea. It offers good snorkeling, and...

Writing about Xtabi is like writing about an old friend. I first encountered this enchanted little cove on the cliffs of Negril in the late '80's thinking it was the best swimming hole in the world. My wife and I stayed in a garden room in 2005. I can remember imagining myself as a Taino Indian perched on the top...

We love Xtabi! We stayed in cottage #8 - which I would pick again in a heartbeat. It has a fantastic partial view from a veranda that we spent a lot of time on. I couldn't believe how quiet it was here- except for the background reggae music coming from the bar, which we enjoyed. It really is worth the...

Thank you once again to the staff and management of Xtabi Resort. We once again chose Xtabi for the second time as a stop over place on our way through Negril. We stayed in Cottage #8 - the second floor of #7. The cottage is quaint and we love the outdoor shower. Always clean, well cared for, no phone, no...

Fabulous view, but the food is not even mediocre... I took a friend here as a "thank you" treat and was embarrassed by how bad both the service and the food were. The night we were there, the youngish staff was much more consumed with chatting amongst themselves than waiting on the customers. Comments to the waiter that the food...

Xtabi exploits Jamaican-style charm with it's rustic cottages which enables you to feel the atmosphere and vibe of the island. If you prefer to stay in 5-star resorts when you travel, then this place is not for you. But if you like to submerge yourself in the culture of the places you travel, then this resort should be on the...

I have been going to Xtabi for over 20 years, roughly 13 stays in various rooms and cottages! when you find something good why change! The cottages are so quaint. And the staff are friendly and sweet. I will return to Negril and will definitely stay in what I consider my "home away from home"!
