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

I got married at Tensing Pen in a bride and groom only ceremony last week. I first have to say thanks again to Shanique the T.P wedding coordinator who we exchanged multiple emails with in the months prior to the wedding. Very professional, patient, and hardworking (she also helps setup the wedding site) and she had everything we requested ready... More

Tensing Pen was a perfect vacation for relaxing. The staff was unbelievably attentive and helpful. The food was incredible. The first night I was there, I got a seafood rice dish that came with fresh vegetables. All of the food and juice was fresh and delicious! Every staff member was wonderful to deal with, especially the bartenders and servers! As... More

We have been coming to Tensing Pen for 30 years and are always thrilled to be back. Laid back, beautiful, and fun, we can't imagine a better place to stay in Negril. The food is very good. Razor, the bartender, is hilarious. The staff can't do enough for you. We'd go on, but fear we won't be able to get... More

My wife and I planned a 5-night stay on 7 mile beach and 3 nights in the west end at Tensing Pen. The last 3 nights we spent at Tensing Pen. Wow is how I’ll begin to describe it. It was our first experience at a non AI on the cliffs in Jamaica. Check-in: Check-in was a breeze. They provided... More

Stayed here for a week with three friends in June in two bedroom Red Birch Cottage. Open air living room looked out onto ocean, every staff member was friendly, swimming in pool and off the cliffs was incredible, and dinner was one of the best during our stay. Not one bad thing to say. Perfect spot for getting away and... More

Tensing Pen makes you feel like home. Every aspect of the property from its landscaping to the suites and most importantly the staff make it so wonderful. I stayed in the Bungalow and The Patio, both are exquisite. Everything was very clean. The beds were so comfortable and I had great sleep. The dining area is welcoming. It is not... More

Tensing Pen is a beautiful resort on the cliffs of Negril. We stayed in garden b and the room couldn't have been much better. The only reason to stay in the more expensive rooms is if you desire a view. It appeared as though all the rooms had fridges which was very nice as there is a small grocery across... More
