We had a lovely room, but truly enjoyed jumping from the bridge at the resort and swimming in the pool overlooking the ocean at sunset! The bartender was great, and we enjoyed the dirty banana drinks! Beautiful setting for an enjoyable stay!

What a great location, quite small, very private, beautiful setting. We loved our week at this place, clearly other people do to as we met a number of people who were on return visits. The staff were all very courteous, with the slight exception of the old grumpy bar tender. You can dive off the rocks into the sea here,... More

We stayed at Tensing Pen 2 nights. We loved it. We got welcome drinks and fresh up towels as soon as we arrived. Our garden suite which was on the first floor had a beautiful balcony with sea view. The room is big and well decorated. Loved the flowers and the little details just like the swan towels in our... More

This place is amazing....The best place I have ever stayed. It's even more unique and beautiful than the pictures. My boyfriend and I went for 10 Fabulous days. When he first told me about the Tensing Pen, I was unsure... No all inclusive? No TV? Well, that did not matter at all. There are too many wonderful things to enjoy... More

We stayed at Tensing Pen for a long five night weekend. It was great! If you want to be in Negril then this is the place to stay. Walking distance and/or 5 minute taxi ride to pretty much everything. Great rooms, too - you don't need the super expensive room to have a great room. All rooms are just a... More

Loved the place, it was perfect to decompress from a frantic year. In low season you can have low prices and the place all for you. The staff is following you closely and he experience is great. Clean, luxurious... We got a great deal. It's so much better to be on the cliffs! The beach is so chaotic... No problems... More

Tensing pen is just beautiful!! Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room (patio) met our needs-fridge, wifi, AC. Great location-walking distance to ricks café and short cab ride to other spots. Very intimate setting. Just what the Dr. ordered!

We spend the first couple days of our honeymoon at Tensing Pen and stayed in the Pine Pillar. The views are amazing! Laying in bed listenting to the ocean and waves was so relaxing! We were worried as the room didnt have a/c but it cooled off at night and with the big doors open and the breeze and fans,... More

We just got back last week and I was very sad to come home. As a couple, we travel a lot and this was a perfect spot to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. I was concerned about the weather and not having a beach, but it was not an issue at all. There are so many spots around the resort... More
