We stayed for a week in January & we loved it. The staff can't do enough for you & the rooms are well kept & clean. We stayed in garden b & the garden cabin both were nice. My only grumble would be the relentless barking through the night from the dogs next door which I'm aware is not the... More

Great staff and beautiful rooms made this a welcome place to stay in Negril. Make sure you have a zoom zoom- it'll change your brain! Great cliffs and fun to lounge about. Also walking distance to some great restaurants.

Tensing Pen was a fantastic resort to stay at in Negril. We stayed in one of the large cottages and it was absolutely beautiful. All of the cottages also have a wonderful view of the ocean (and sunset). There is quite a bit to do around the resort, although I would recommend exploring negril and the surrounding area as much...

I picked this place based on tripadvisor reviews. Majority of them skipped on the fact that among locals , the restaurant has a terrible reputation . Also the place needs an upgrade on service and infrastructure. With that said, it's a magic setting close to natures best gifts. If you like surflodge in Montauk , this will remind you of... More

One of my favorite boutique hotels. Beautiful bungalow rooms, right on the cliff where you can jump into clear, deep water or lounge by the pool. Walking distance to Rock House (we were so glad we stayed here instead) and a short drive to the sandy white beaches. Food was good, too. Note: wouldn't take small children here as it's... More

As a habitual fidgeter, I reluctantly booked this place because my wife demanded "laid back and sun" in lieu of our traditional "cultural" christmas vacations (Prague and Vienna last year). No TV, no phones, erratic wifi. Just rebooked it for Easter. What a great place. Wonderful staff, B plus to A minus food with enough menu variety that we ate... More

This was our second stay at Tensing Pen. This resort is the best place we have ever stayed. The restaurant is great, the staff wonderful, and it's location on the cliffs of Negril- unbeatable. Tensing Pen truly defines the perfect vacation spot. We stayed in the Long House two years ago and this time in South Pillar. We feel lucky... More

This was my 4th trip to Tensing Pen, and they never stop amazing me. The facility is always beautifully maintained and the staff could not be any more welcoming. Every time I come back, I feel like I never left. If you are looking for a place to unplug and unwind with your significant other, you can never go wrong... More

Stayed here for a few nights to wind down after our beach stay. Have to say we really enjoyed out time here and wish we would have booked longer. The property and staff were great, everything we expected. Even gave us a free upgrade to a pillar cabin which made it that much better.
