Had a great time here. It's a great size not too big & not too small. Staff are fantastic, very friendly. Diving off the cliffs & bridge are great fun & the sunsets are to die for. Basic breakfast included which is a bonus. I would definatly stay here again. To take full advantage of the location make sure you... More

We have never gone on back-to-back vacations at the same spot. The fact that we returned to Tensing Pen over Easter, having just spent Christmas vacation there, says a lot about this property. Accommodations are spotless. Staff is attentive, very friendly and attuned to repeat visitors. Restaurant is quite good.

Everything about this resort was amazing. The staff bent over backward to make you feel welcome, comfortable & pampered. The accommodations were beautiful. Every cottage has a magnificent view with breathtaking sunsets & beautiful flora overlooking the serene Caribbean. The 3 dogs really added to the comfort & hominess of the experience. Meals on the patio overlooking the cliffs &... More

We loved tensing pen! We had south pillar and the view was spectacular! We were only here for 3 days as we did a split vacation with 4 days on 7 mile beach. I love the beach but almost preferred the cliffs. If we ever return to jamaica, tensing pen would be our choice for the cliffs. We had fun... More

My husband and I spent four nights at Tensing Pen and enjoyed it very much. From check in to check out the staff took good care of us. We stayed in Rock Cottage 1 and would choose it again. It had a great unobstructed view of the ocean and sunset. We had a moderate sized porch with two loungers and... More

We went all around Jamaica, from Kingston to Montego Bay, and Negril is by far the nicest place on the island. I was skeptical since the hotel didn't have a "beach", it's more of a cliffside resort and boy I was mistaken. The ocean is spectacular and it's so fun to have to dive into deep blue water. It was...

In January we stayed 6 nights at Tensing Pen's Pine Pillar Suite for our son's wedding. Each night we all gathered at a different location on the grounds for the beautiful sunsets. Shanique helped my son & his fiancée with the wedding plans. The Seasong Hut and sunset view were breathtaking for the wedding and reception. The food, drinks and... More

My husband and I just traveled to Negril and stayed at the tensing Pen resort with 2 friends. The resort is about an hour and a half away from the Montego Bay airport - you pass through many towns on the way which was nice to see - but Negril is something special! We had the most amazing experience. The... More
