Xtabi Resort - Lighthouse Road, West End
Yes, the furnishings are simple, rustic and a bit outdated, but Xtabi gives you a taste of the old days - a laid-back and relaxed Negril.

Some have kitchenettes, some (the newer ones) have A/C, some have cable TV and others do not. All have private bathrooms, fans and a verandah or balcony, and no building is higher than a palm tree. Snorkeling is great here along the cliffs and the views are spectacular. If you’re looking for luxury and every amenity under the sun, Xtabi will not make you happy. But those seeking a cozy and romantic spot for pure relaxation with some charm and natural beauty should enjoy this friendly resort, and the rates are very reasonable if you are budget-minded. The resort is located in the middle of the cliffs so there are a lot of good eating places, bars and the beach within easy walking distance. However, Xtabi’s restaurant has some of the best food in Negril, so you may never want to leave! Free wireless internet service is now available. Phone: 876.957.0121 or 876.957.0524.
