We stayed for two nights at the Xtabi in July. We stayed in cottage 2 on the cliffs. The cottage was very nice, no tv , no air conditioning . We didn't miss the AC at all, they have huge ceiling fans that keep you cool. We loved the outdoor shower. The resort is beautiful, stunning. We got the true...

Mr. Charles, Did have an intrusion, and it is unfortunate, but it could have been avoided if he had closed and locked his door that evening. The police find it different that the intruder did not take his wallet or money, computer, or other valuables that were left on the table as the person left the cottage, they did take...

Xtabi is a long established hotel on the cliffs... Time just has a way of slowing down there... They have rooms ranging from modern AC rooms with TV (why would you want TV) to charming old fashioned wood cottages. The prices for the AC rooms are hard to beat and the rooms are way above average for Negril... Cottage 1...

Wear a swim suit for cliff jumping. Also explore various stair cases down to the caves which end at water. A couple of caves have steps going right into the ocean. There are various swim platforms out on the water with steps going up the cliffs back to the resort. A friend staying at Xtabi said breakfast and lunch were...

This is a lovely place, it was quiet when we were there, seemed to be out of season. The only thing I would make people aware which has nothing to do with the hotel is the guys on motor bikes (so called tour guides & taxi drivers) As we drove there, we were constantly annoyed by them the would annoy...

I am writing this 9 months after the fact. Xtabi continues to be my favorite in Negril. While the rooms and cottages are simple and clean, the staff is the real gem at the resort.
