We just got back from Tensing Pen and had an incredible time. Not an excursion vacation, but a hang out and chill one. We ate at Ros Roddy's Veg Restaurant Stand just out of the gate. Ahbee's burgers and Red Stripe right next to that! The Ivan's for Lobster Fettuccine Alfredo and Lobster Tails grilled with garlic and butter. Every... More

Great hotel - great room, South House ll - great view - great people - great good - great bar! We picked Negril because we wanted away from the crowds - picked Tensing Pen because it was smaller and the meals were not all inclusive. We relied on other comments and we were not disappointed. SH ll is on the... More

My daughter and I returned from a week at Tensing Pen and had an amazing time. The property is gorgeous, and I'm so glad we opted for an intimate resort vs. gigantic all-inclusives. Negril is a bit out of the way from the aiport in Montego Bay (about 70-90 min) but is well worth the trek to get away from... More

Nice location. Beautiful setting. Staff not very enthusiastic and it seemed like they do not enjoy their work very much. Food was alright. Our room (garden b) needed a thorough cleaning. We were expecting more. I would not return for another visit.

Had the most amazing stay at this beautiful hotel. All the staff were super friendly and even upgraded our room upon arrival. Would highly recommend a visit here. Only negative comments was that t.v's are not included in your room and free wifi is poor, however this is not a major concern with the beautiful views in which Tensing Pen... More

PROS: Tensing Pen is beautiful. The landscaping between all the cottages is stunning, and you can't beat the dramatic view of the cliffs. Our room was incredibly quiet at night, all we heard was ocean. Clean room and bathroom. Friendly, helpful staff. The resort in general was very quiet. All the other guests were quiet, respectful and not at all... More

The location and views on this property are some of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen. The sunset is breathtaking. The cliffs were awesome and I had fun jumping off of them and the bridge. Food at the place is good, but expensive compared to similar places around Negril. The three dogs (Rhodesian Ridgebacks) were awesome, loved Beasy,... More

Tensing Pen is a lovely property in a nice setting. The rooms (although very nice) were very musty and in dire need of a thorough cleaning! The staff were also lackluster and didn't really help to create a holiday experience for guests. All in all, I probably would not stay at Tensing Pen again.

This boutique resort was AMAZING! I stayed here back in October of 2013 for a wedding that I was apart of. Everything was absolutely wonderful. From the staff, to the food, to the awesome views, Tensing Pen is the perfect location for getting away from it all. Unlike many other resorts, this one is unique because it is very small... More

Tensing Pen was the perfect place to spend our honeymoon. The hotel is kept immaculate, the people are so helpful and friendly, and you really feel like you've gotten away from it all. We loved the relaxed feel and the beautiful views from the cliffs. It was great to be able to come back to this relaxing location after being... More
