In January we stayed 6 nights at Tensing Pen's Pine Pillar Suite for our son's wedding. Each night we all gathered at a different location on the grounds for the beautiful sunsets. Shanique helped my son & his fiancée with the wedding plans. The Seasong Hut and sunset view were breathtaking for the wedding and reception. The food, drinks and... More

My husband and I just traveled to Negril and stayed at the tensing Pen resort with 2 friends. The resort is about an hour and a half away from the Montego Bay airport - you pass through many towns on the way which was nice to see - but Negril is something special! We had the most amazing experience. The... More

I miss Tensing Pen. It has been 3 weeks and I gaze longingly at the picture on my phone, wishing I was there. Tensing Pen will always be special and hopefully I will be back one day. Long review, but I broke it up into sections. The Accommodations: We had a group of 14 staying at the resort. We occupied... More

Never a let down! Tranquility spiced with adventure, tensing pen is a Tropical Paddling Paradise! Pristine waters with several caves easily accessible to paddle in and out of, beautiful cliffs and a 7 mile beach. So much to explore on A paddleboard. We took two inflatables, checked in on the plane with luggage without any issue. Tensing Pen is so... More

I have been to Tensing Pen twice now with my family and it feels like home. The property itself is beautiful, with oceanside and secluded cottages spread across the property. We saw dolphins swim by almost every single morning. The bridge is amazing to jump off of and the pool is perfect if you don't want to be in the... More

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
