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"!

My Husband and I just returned from our 3rd stay at Xtabi - after several years of staying at other places in Negril, we now call Xtabi our Jamaican "home" for a few weeks each winter. We love the laid back atmosphere at Xtabi, the clean rooms and well tended grounds and the sense of safety and security. The bar...

Stayed in a sea front cottage. All are wonderful - old-school Negril. Some are less private. Mine was very private, but close to the bar - but which was never a problem. Beautiful gardens. Good restaurant. Well located - easy to reach all cliff-side hotels, bars and restaurants, and the beach is 10 minutes away. One of the most beautiful...

I've been to Negril about 14 times and stayed at Xtabi on the garden side twice. Both times my husband and I went with another couple, and we had a great time. We have stayed a few other places in the cliffs and we really enjoyed Xtabi's whole package - price, cleanliness, staff, view, food. This is not a fancy...

We really liked this hotel but there doesn't seem to be much maintenance. Our toilet ran and they checked it out and said "jiggle the handle" which we did but didn't seem like a real fix but the worse part was the Air Conditioner that kept freezing up and then dripping water all over and making a racket so bad...

This is a simple, beautiful, fun place to stay. Jamaica loves its tourists! They go above and beyond to take care of them and I always felt safe and welcome. The staff is like family.

A current visitor at Xtabi - I couldn't be happier. Negril itself is a beautiful city, but this hotel is like a "once in a life time" experience, yet you'll love it so much, you know it won't be just once. There are staff members who have been here since the beginning, which speaks to the loyalty of the people...
