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

Stayed 2 nights with my husband and 19 year old daughter, wish we could have stayed longer. Excellent location on the cliffs, walking distance to Ricks Café. Based on reviews I read I was hesitant to book for family vacation, however this place works for both family or romantic getaway because of the placement of the cottages. Strong Wi-Fi which... More

Could only stayed 1 night, but didn't want to leave. It is a fantastic place to stay. Everything you would want in a place. But must stay more than 1 night to really enjoy it. I will definately be going back to finish my stay there

Excellent restaurant and good drinks at the bar. Jump off the bridge. No TV but that suited us just fine. We stayed in Sea Grape 1 which had AC. The dogs... More

Tensing Pen is just incredible. After falling asleep to the sound of the ocean every night, I am glad that we chose Cottage Cove over one of the pillars. We had a view of the bridge and the beautiful water and cliffs below. You will not miss the beach! Jumping off the bridge or the cliffs is an incredible experience.... More
