I love Xtabi so much that I have stayed there over a dozen times, including renting the entire resort for a business reward ceremony. The prices are very reasonable, the view is unparalleled, the skin diving is superb, and the staff is amazing. I always feel like family and very well taken care of when I visit my favorite island getaway. I love it so much that my next stay is for my 50th birthday with my family. If you’ve never been to the island you should definitely stay here, and avoid the all inclusive and fake resorts. This is the real Jamaica.

My 15 year old son and I spent a week in Cottage 24 (the 2 bedroom cottage that used to be part of the owners' suite) during a 3 day pandemic- related lockdown and a 2 day tropical storm, and let me tell you, we had a great time! Grounds were immaculate, pool was cleaned every day, the fruit trees (mangos, guineps, breadfruit, and the best ackee I've ever tasted) were abundant, and everyone- front desk, housekeeping, grounds crew and bar staff- was so lovely! The owner, David, and one of his sons were a very visible presence, which was super nice. Just an all around good vibe. I've stayed in pretty much every type of room at Xtabi over the years, but this was my first time in Cottage 24. We loved it! Beautiful porch, spacious full kitchen (4-burner stove and full-sized refrigerator) and living room (with flat screen tv, which we never bothered to use), 2 big bedrooms (the main bedroom has a brand new air conditioner) and a large bathroom (with bathtub/shower) in the back, directly connected to the main bedroom and separated from the other bedroom by a little hall area. The only upgrade they really need to take care of is to get a new refrigerator- the one they have doesn't work at all (fridge is hot and freezer is warm). To be fair, I never mentioned that it was broken. There was too much going on with the lockdown and the storm to bother anyone over that. So yeah, Xtabi is still one of my all-time favorite places to visit. Thank you everyone for another wonderful stay.

Xtabi Resort is on the West end cliffs. Very nice spacious rooms. Excellent restaurant and access to the Caribbean Sea. The restaurant prices were average and the food is outstanding. I had friends staying at Xtabi so i utilized their services when i visited.

We’ve been to Xtabi three times. In 2006, 2008 and 2020. We’ve stayed in the two bedroom suite (24), cottage 1 and 21. Cottage 1 is on the sea side and highly recommended - outside of the rainy season. 24 is nice and spacious with a proper oven and stove, really nice for cooking your own meals!! 21 is in the garden and a bit set back. This cottage is really cute if you like being tucked away. Beware mosquitos are fierce during the rainy season, bring bug spray. You can expect more rustic accommodations at Xtabi, however the heart of this place is the people. We love the housekeeping staff and reception staff: Novine, Cherie and Charmaine. They really made sure we were taken care of. The towels and sheets could use an update. Perhaps a coat of fresh paint in the place too. Omar, the bar tender and creator of ‘dirty bananas’ (an amazing rum drink), is your go to for anything you need such as ganj or edibles. He’s young, fun and has a great way about him. George is another bartender we absolutely love. Lively and energetic George can make anyone smile. He’s sweet as pie! Lily was the Manager on-site while we were there and made sure we were comfortable. She also knew about all the hotspots and delish places to eat which was great since we had not been there in soooo long. Lily truely was an incredible delight and we are so happy to have met her. Xtabi has awesome drinks, great food, fabulous views, the best people, and is perfect for those that like more down to earth accommodations and can go with the flow. We hope Xtabi survives all of this Covid mess and that it gets the love it needs in the areas that need a bit of fixing. Xtabi also has a pool which is great for lazy days or evening swims. Nothing better than the stunning sea when it’s calm tho!!

of all the islands, Jamaica is the best. I have been staying on the cliffs for 35 years and Xtabi was one I stayed in years ago. It's convenient for getting up and down the road, getting over to Ricks. Staff work hard, and the area is just great
