Fabulous place. Quirky little cottage style lodging. Very clean. Some rooms have sea view. Restaurant beautiful setting but food poor. Had the worst polenta I have ever tasted. Was like eating sawdust. Food overpriced. This place is situated in quieter part of negril. Drinks at bar in hotel very expensive. 8 dollars for cocktails but then most of negril is... More

I stay far away from the big resorts in favor of small luxury hotels and Tensing Pen was a perfect fit for my taste. I was a little worried about the lack of a sandy beach and that the waters would be too rough but actually ended up loving jumping in from the bridge or using the ladders that lead... More

It wasn't our first choice (which was booked out) but we really enjoyed our stay at Tensing Pen. Clean, tidy and very comfortable rooms at a really reasonable price. Great spot on the cliffs although it was quite windy for most of our stay.

We really enjoyed our stay and the workers have the best customer service and very professional. We stayed at the North Pillar beautiful sea view while relaxing on our balcony. This hotel knows about relaxing by not having any TV/phone in room which we think is a plus. We checked out at 12 noon left bags at hotel and went... More

I visited Tensing Pen the third week of March during a trip to Negril to scout wedding locations. We stayed at Spa Retreat because we didnt know about TP at time of booking. Spa Retreat is lovely and newer. We thought about having our wedding there next April but as with everything at Spa Retreat, EVERYTHING is expensive. I guess... More

Tensing Pen is the the standard against which i measure all of my carribbean resorts. In fact, every time i book a trip to a new island, i realize I'm reading TripAdvisor looking for similarities between unknown properties, and this lovely little boutique. Ive been now three times to Negril (also to Montego Bay and Ocho Rios) the fight to... More

The staff we're friendly & helpful. They made our stay even more pleasant. Everything was clean & even more beautiful than the photos. We we're in walking distance of the... More

We hosted a beautiful bridal luncheon at Tensing Pen a few weeks ago. The team was incredibly helpful & made planning an event from far away extremely easy. We took over the the yoga hut which we were afraid might appear a little sparse but they transformed the space into a beautifully intimate and vibrant setting. From jumping off the... More

A group of six friends stayed at Tensing Pen April 19th-21st all in our late 20’s. This was mine and my husband’s second stay at Tensing Pen but the first for the rest in our group. Four of us stayed in the Red Birch cottage and the other two stayed in a garden room. Upon arrival we were checked in... More

Once again, we had an amazing week at Tensing Pen. If you need a place to get out of winter and totally relax this is it. The grounds are so beautiful and colorful. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Lots of new restaurants in he area to choose from as well as the one at Tensing. Hope to be... More
