I spent a week at Xtabi in early December. I have been to Negril a number of times over the past 20 years but this was my first time staying on the West End and at Xtabi. I would definitely go backi. The location is excellent and the facilities are more than adequate. I was very happy with the level of service provided by both the staff and the management. They all made an effort to make my stay a pleasant one. If you are an avid snorkeler such as myself this is a great place to stay as there are a number of ladders on the resort's ocean front area that provide access to the ocean. The sea caves and marine life were very cool. I ate at the on site restaurant often and was happy with the quality of the food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The conch items on the menu were particularly tasty.
I read with interest Chris Hill's recent review. I can understand that he may have had a problem with his booking but his reaction seems unduly harsh. He professes that he did a lot of yelling and screaming which seems a poor way to handle any problem. He also says his best friends in Jamaica work there but that he is going to use his influence to put the place out of business. I doubt his "friends" are happy with that strange attitude. I had limited dealings with the manager Sonya but I found her to be efficient and helpful.
