million dollar views

Posted Feb 12, 2017
Pros: Views!!the water, the pool, the caves.Very pretty location. Also great food and friendly staff. Outdoor shower with room was so nice!
Cons: The only downside was how "dead" it was in the evening.The bar was open but it was a sleepy quiet vibe. There is a bit of room to improve there.
Location: Just close to 3 Dives and walking distance to many West End locations.
My husband and I just got back from a stay at Xtabi. It was our first time in the West End of Negril and we were very pleased with our stay at Xtabi. We felt safe and it was very relaxing. It's not fancy but it's charming and has everything you need. We really liked our room with the deck and outdoor shower. We did not have AC but the ceiling fan was more than enough to keep us cool at night. The location on the cliffs is superb and the views breathtaking. We were on the garden side near the pool and it was very mellow and quiet. Very relaxing atmosphere. Lots of spots to sit and relax both on the garden side and the cliff side. We ate at the hotel several times and the food was consistently good! Great coffee and breakfast with the open horizon views. So beautiful! We met several guests who had been coming to Xtabi for many years. We got the feeling that guests were treated like family. The only negative we could think of was that it was so dead quiet at night. If you want a party nightlife you can go to the beach area but I think it might be possible to find a middle ground and bring a bit of life into the bar area after dinner without going wild. But this place does seem to cater to an older crowd that is more mellow so the bar area in the evening is very quiet. But for the price there are more pros than cons to this place for sure!

Unique- more authentic feel - caves cliffs snorkel

Posted Feb 8, 2017
This stay was our second time at Xtabi, and we were there for two glorious weeks. Beautiful pool and gardens with pathways, sculptures, trees. Private rooms with patios and seating outside. Quiet area but within a close distance to the town of Negril and seven mile beach. Lovely restaurant- clean, great food and a beautiful bar all overlooking a fantastic view of the ocean. This is a smaller resort so it's quiet and the staff are so friendly and welcoming! Most other guests had been there many times. If you want romance privacy and a more authentic experience of Jamaica this place is perfect!

Beautiful view

Cons: Bed was very uncomfortable
Location: We took a boat ride, snorkeling, lots of swimming and great restaurants
The hotel has a beautiful view over looking the cliffs. Staff was excellent and food was outstanding. They do charge for extras, like refridge and safe.

Cottage on the Cliffs!

Posted Dec 12, 2016
I have been staying at Xtabi for 8 years. The staff is so nice and accommodating. I recommend staying in a superior room as it has a/c and a tv. The food is great from the restaurant and is very reasonably priced. The bartenders are very friendly and make an amazing dirty banana. It is the perfect mix of entertainment and relaxation. If anyone is hesitant to stay at a non-all inclusive, this is a perfect place as there is so much within walking distance for great food and drinks - 3 Dives is right beside Xtabi and Rockhouse Hotel is close by too which offers a spa and a great bar! This isn't a great please for children as the road can be busy and there isn't easy water access off the cliffs.

Location: We had a rent a car so explored further places as well- did not walk to far on the busy street
Enjoyed the water sunsets the smallness and closeness of everything. Food was excellent.

A little local paradise

Posted May 3, 2016
Pros: The staff!
Cons: Nothing really sticks out.
The rooms were just fine. Not the fanciest, but certainly clean and spacious enough for 2 people. The views from the cliffs are indescribable and incomparable. Most of all, the staff was fantastic and made us feel more than welcome. Michael and Beenie Man always went out of their way to help us, and Damion was the man when it came to getting us where we needed to go. I would recommend this resort to any of my friends wishing to go to Negril.
