Spent three days here. I found the staff friendly and helpful, especially when I could not unlock my door as the lock was a little temperamental, staff was sent immediately to remedy the situation. The room was fairly basic but the spacious bathroom provided a good shower in a bathtub and plenty of hot water. The kitchen and wait staff... More

I spent a week at Tensing Pen and loved everything about it. It is a beautiful, and quaint resort that is nestled in the cliffs. I was looking for a peaceful and relaxing getaway and was not disappointed. The pool always had room and if I wanted solitude there were several options along the cliffs that provided peaceful serenity. Previous... More

When we checked in it however tzook them 15 minutes to get us our keys.Then the bothering parts started: the shower just dribbled luke warm water (after taking off the shower head... More

This is a very nice property with the true Jamaican charm that visitors will be looking for. It's a rustic resort with relatively good customer service. The rooms are basic. I stayed in North Pillar which is a single elevated Hut with a direct view overlooking the sea, and a small balcony which a couple can use to enjoy that... More

The food is amazing, the views out of this world, the drinks delicious. Shanique our wedding coordinator did a fantastic job! Walked away feeling like we really experienced the essence of Jamaica,...

I arrived in the pouring rain, weary after 8 hours of driving and ready for a comfortable, clean place to stay. I had come to Jamaica for the wow factor, the gorgeous water, the cliffs, the fact that there's much there that you just won't see in the US... Tensing Pen had all that I was looking for along with... More

Came for a wedding in November, stayed for five days. Tensing has amazing views. The only drawback is that there is no beach area at Tensing Pen or Negril for that matter. Our room was huge and it had AC. If you go- make sure you request one with AC a few of the couples on the trip who did... More

We came for a 15 year anniversary, with the intention of not dealing with laptops or phone and just RELAXING. This place was perfect! While you do have connectivity there, we loved not having a TV or a landline phone in our room. We got up each morning and jumped right into the ocean for a swim before breakfast. We... More

This hotel was wonderful through and through. The staff across the board was friendly, accommodating, helpful and welcoming. The rooms were clean, as were the grounds, the pool area and the dining area. This is the only place we stayed (out of four throughout the island) that actually had reliable wifi if that matters to you. The stonework throughout the... More
