Snorkel equipment available at lobby or better book an ocean snorkel trip for 35.00 with Vincent. Book in lobby, catch book at bridge in resort and go. Afterwards,... More

A family holiday brought us to this breath-taking resort where the blue-green waters and stony cliff-faces were brought into natural play with accommodation facilities. So many nooks and crannies to relax in with ajoupa style huts and hammocks, beautifully landscaped gardening and of course the breath-taking views from every room. Food was always tasty and other restaurants are within close... More

Loved this hotel, with its large rooms, bed, bathroom and balconies. Not forgetting the amazing views. The room and bathroom etc was very clean and I'm quite picky. Hotel and restaurant staff were excellent too. My only complaint would be about the bad service and high costs of drivers and taxis but that's probably a trend in Jamaica. I only... More

We stayed here on a family trip this year at the end of July. The resort is amazing beyond words! So beautiful.. The service was exceptional and everyone was so friendly.. These pictures don't do it justice but you can get a glimpse! We have already booked our trip here again next year! Can't wait!

This non-inclusive resort (just breakfast) is located on the cliffs with easy access by ladders directly to the open ocean (no actual sand beach) in quiet protective coves which was refreshing and worked very well with us. The grounds are immaculate and full of local folliage and the rooms are nicely spread out for maximum privacy. We stayed in Seagrape... More

This resort is absolutely stunning. We came here for a wedding and it could not be more perfect. Located on the cliffs, it was so peaceful to sit and watch the dolphins swim by, and the sunsetting. The food was amazing, especially the buffet breakfast. The pool was always clean, and of course you could jump into the ocean for... More

Tucked on top of the rocky cliffs of Negril, Tensing Pen gives visitors a real taste of Jamaica. After dividing our visit between an all inclusive in Runaway Bay and Tensing Pen, I would choose Tensing Pen again and again. The resort is intimate and the rooms are secluded from one another giving visitors a ton of privacy, which is... More

The hotel and their staff were awesome. Our room was perfect, very romantic. We had privacy in a wonderful place. The view from our room was great. I was able to swim freely off the cliffs. I only stayed here one night, but I really wish I had spent my whole vacation here. I would not recommend that you wander... More
