We picked Xtabi mainly as it offered good value for the location. Our requirements were a pool, a/c, off street parking and a refrigerator. Had to pay $4 extra a day but worth it for ice and cold drinks.
We did have a few issues like TV not working- quickly fixed, the fridge stopped working after a power surge- quickly replaced and the a/c leaked- again quickly fixed!
We stayed in room 15 on the garden side, so you now know that everything should be working fine!
The bar is lovely and we ate lunch and dinner twice at the restaurant overlooking the cliffs. Good access into the sea, either down the cliff side steps and a metal ladder or further round down steps cut into the cliff down to a little hidden beach. Great place to swim or snorkel.
Overall I would say that it is good value but no frills and we would stay there next time we are in Negril.More
