Tensing Pen is amazing! It is a beautiful resort on the cliffs of the West End of Negril. We phoned the resort to send a car to pick us up from the beach. We arrived at the hotel around noon and was greeted by friendly staff. Our upgraded room was not yet ready so they offered us a free welcome... More

The Long House at Tensing Pen was perfect for us and our friends, another couple. It was our 4th or 5th time in Negril, but their first. Super fun to share the amazing beauty of the cliffs of Negril, jumping off the bridge, and chilling by the pool. Very relaxing and chill vibe. Got to meet the famous Razor and... More

Tensing Pen is our new favorite place to vacation! We will be back. It's is away from the hotel chains and heavy tourism. You absolutely feel like you are on your own little piece of island property. The views are breathtaking and the property is beautiful and well maintained. The staff is wonderful and very accommodating. Get a massage on... More

The majestic cliffs and waters of the West End are simply breathtaking to one's eyes. Tensing Pen lives up to its reputation as a place to unwind in paradise. The resort is quiet and a wonderful place to simply unplug from the world. My husband and I feel in love with the solitude and relaxing vibe this resort exhibited during... More

This time for a change we stayed in Garden A, and a Pillar room. Loved both. The hotel is the same wonderful mix of laid back employees, guests, sun and sea. Rent a scooter! Travel around to local restaurants and stop and have a beer and meet the locals. You won't regret it. We go in November and never seem... More

Meant to write this review years ago when I stayed at Tensing Pen - but it truly is one of the most amazing places I've ever stayed. While a little far out from the airport and the all-inclusive resorts in Negril - this is a good thing! You get the beauty of Jamaica without all the unnecessary "touristy" attractions that... More

This is long overdue, but we got married here. (A small wedding of only 25 people.) It was superb. The cliffs, the bungalows, the pool, the food. So lovely! The staff was nice and very accommodating. Their suggestions for flowers and photos, etc were excellent. The grounds are very unique, very zen and yet dramatic with the rocky cliffs. Fun... More

What a great hotel! It's was everything I expected and more. Upon arrival, the front office provided scented hand towels and punch while we checked in. They helped carry our luggage and escorted us to our room. We stayed in the 'Patio'. This unit had AC which was great. We left it off and opened the door/windows a lot instead.... More

This boutique hotel was great. It is very seclusive with a private beach. We stayed at Pine Piller Suite and it was amazing!! I only wish they had air-condition in that unit as it was very hot. Also, breakfast choice was poor. We stayed at a Rock House hotel for a few days as well but we liked Tensing Pen... More

I attended my best friends wedding here in April. The place did not disappoint. the staff was amazingly friendly. the grounds are something out a a fairy tale with all kinds of little nooks to escape to, cliffs to dive off of and a great pool to lounge in. I was in this amazing treehouse cabin overlooking the ocean with... More
