Mark from Zimbali recommended this place, we went for lunch and was very taken with the resort. Felt a relaxing getaway, the pool and sunbathing area spacious and intimate due to the layout and the structure being cliff side. Cocktails were fantastic, food was wonderful. Our party had a selection from the menu and all shared, we were all very happy with the service and food. A lovely warm place to eat and drink, plus a very romantic hideaway. Thank you Tensing Pens ❤️
Came by for a tour of the resort, Jade from Front Office did an amazing job of giving that tour. She was very friendly, warm, and informative. I haven't stayed here yet and I would legit recommend this place to anyone inquiring 10/10. Love the integration of nature with the whole resort, love the doggos even though one was cranky because I woke her (sorry). Overall a great experience. Day passes are also available and fairly priced !
I've looked at getting to Tensing Pen for a while and am so thrilled I finally made it to this beautiful, relaxing, enchanting resort! From the moment I arrived I felt completely at home and ready to book a return trip. The sea was rough most of the time we were there but Tensing Pen offered so many places to relax and just soak up all the beauty. We were able to jump off the bridge - a must if you visit - on the last full day. The staff is gracious and kind and interactive with guests and you feel more like family. There are stashes of books and games for relaxing fun. All sorts of Negril activities either short walks or cab rides from the resort.
I am so happy I bookmarked Tensing Penn when I read about them in Condé Nast awhile ago. When my husband and I were looking for a last minute getaway for our anniversary they fit the bill perfectly based on what I read and they didn't disappoint. Our room (South House 2) was clean, well appointed and had a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea. The food was very good as was the service, The spa services have a short list of options but are located in an open air hut overlooking the ocean which I happen to love and I had the best massage I've ever had by a lovely masseuse named Maxcine. I went back for a second one before I left :) The property is home to 3 large dogs which we enjoyed very much They visit when you are eating and sunbathing but they don't beg for food. They are very well behaved. They ended up liking us a little extra one night and we had all three of them sleeping in our bed. The front desk was kind enough to come get them for us. There are no phones or televisions in the rooms. I communicated with the front desk via What's App daily and they always replied immediately. They brought me an extra lounge chair, I made dinner reservations, ordered taxis, booked day trips, made the massage appointments through the app. I never had to wait for a response. Note there is no room service or other service by the pool etc but it didn't bother me at all. The bar and restaurant are so close by and I brought a small coffee maker with me for my morning brew on the balcony. I didn't miss it. Also no beach, everything is built into the cliffs and is spectacular watching people jump into the water from the cliffs. Thanks again to all the staff. Everyone we encountered was lovely. All the best, Merrilee & Cesar…
Beautiful meal for a 50th birthday. Group of 23 visited. Easy to book, staff very good. Food was lovely and place was amazing. Would definitely come back to stay here. Great place. Drinks were very good quality but expensive. Food was very good quality but quite reasonable.
I have lost count, but I think this April 2022 trip was our 15th visit to Tensing Pen.We missed last year, due to Covid and, like everyone everywhere, our mental health needed a boost which we knew the resort would provide. As soon as we arrived, we felt restored and rejuvenated. The beauty of the place overwhelms me each and every time we arrive and it truly feels like being welcomed home. The lodge at TP is my favorite place to have breakfast overlooking the beautiful blue sea. Fresh fruit and pastries and that incredible coffee! Actually, every single meal is not only delicious but served with that view and the warmth of the servers and chefs. The staff is always gracious and friendly throughout the entire property. This was our first time going in April rather than February and it was a bit more rainy then we are used to. However, the cozy cottages with the covered porches are the perfect place to enjoy a tropical rain shower. We are already looking forward to next year.....…
From the amazing accommodations, Spectacular staff and out of this world views and sunsets, there is no better place than this! If you love dogs, bring treats for Tensing, Obi and Zuri, the huge and docile Rhodesian Ridgebacks who will be your best friends for treats and a rub. Calene, the sweet and efficient coffee and breakfast waitress who starts our day, to Palmer, Razor, Rooster, Crystal and ALL the staff who work tired to make the resort beautiful and guests’ desires realities. Dining is a whole other exquisite experience with specials each night that tantalize and taunt the taste buds.
I just got back from a week at this exquisite boutique hotel on the cliffs of Negril. It’s an amazing place.. beautiful setting amongst tropical gardens with breathtaking sunsets. Imagine how it feels to get the best massage you’ve ever had by either Georgia Maxcine or Pamela and then to go back to the lodge where Razor makes you the best dirty banana you’ve ever had while the sky is turning scarlet. The feeling of relaxation and peacefulness prevails the entire time you are there due to the entire staff from the minute you are greeted by the lovely women at the front desk, the hospitality from the entire wait staff and the morning greetings from the gardeners while you are having coffee on your terrace. The rooms are kept spotless and fresh from the housekeeping staff and anything you may need is taken care of immediately. My friends and I love coming here every year meeting new friends and seeing old friends that also return year after year. Sophie K Long Island New York…
We stayed at Tensing Pen the first night of our honeymoon and can’t wait to return! One night was not enough at this beautiful resort! The grounds are immaculate and the service is top notch! I was too nervous to jump off the bridge this time around, but will try again in November! Thank you for a great start to our Jamaican honeymoon!
Just returned from a week "working vacation" in Negril / Tensing Pen. I don't know how else to say it but this place (repeat visitor) just MELTS me and makes time almost seem to slow down. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the bed/bedding is well above average. The views (I always choose an elevated room) are just out of this world and every evening, I'd almost couldn't wait to go to bed as listening to the ocean waves as you are lying in bed is absolutely THERAPEUTIC. Last and certainly not least, the staff here are excellent with a wonderful balance of friendliness and professionalism.... still sad that the masks are hiding all the warm Jamaican smiles. If you enjoy absolute serenity, top-notch service and amenities... LOOK NO FURTHER!
