Everything was excellent. Cottage we stayed in was clean and comfortable, restaurant had great service and delicious meal selections. Staff of resort was friendly and provided the great service. We will return there this fall again.
Tensing Pen simplifies your life and where dreams are made. When the hardest thing to do is decide what you want to eat for lunch, your day is good. This is Tensing Pen at its best. You will not regret it.
We stayed here to get away from it all and that’s exactly what we got. This relaxed no pressure resort gave me the relaxed vibe I had missed on other trips to Jamaica. The staff was spot on with a friendly smile at every turn. Helpful in every case and a pleasure to interact with. No beach but the rock cliffs gave it a remote feel that embraces me every morning. Don’t come here for the crazy life, come here for the headspace
what an amazing spot. Magical water and the best sunset. Felt like family. The food was delicious. We'll be back next year for sure. Stayed at a number of spots in Jamaican, this is my favorite. Love!
Ok so this post is alittle long. The COVID-19 Pandemic has been hard for everyone but especially those of us in the travel industry. We were supposed to attend a Destination Wedding but when it got cancelled we decided to go ahead with our trip to Negril. Sooo glad we did. Yes we were a little apprehensive about traveling during the Pandemic but we felt very comfortable and safe in Negril. The Jamaican people are taking the protocols very seriously, especially the hotels!! We weren’t sure if Jamaicans would be happy we were there. Taking a Covid test and filling out a travel authorization form were no big deal to have a week in paradise. We have been to Negril at least 15 times in the last 10 years and love it. We usually do split stay - cliffs and beach. This was our first visit to Tensing Pen and for sure won’t be our last. I can’t say enough good things about TP. Tensing Pen is amazing in so many ways. The property is spread out, which is great for social distancing, so no space ever felt crowded. Plenty of nooks for enjoying the sun and some cliff jumping. I loved how calm the cove was. Perfect for chillin and floating. We’ve stayed at Catcha Falling Star many times and I definitely like Tensing Pen much better. The vibe is calm, relaxing and inviting. The employees were fabulous!! Anything you wanted they made it happen and always with a smile. I don’t think I’ve been to a property where employees were always so attentive to guests or just getting to know you with some friendly chit chat. From my first correspondence with Datanya in the office to Razor who makes a fresh drink 🍹 to Calene so sweet and fun and always there to bring me a delicious Dirty Banana or a nice bottle of champs. My husband wanted to do some fishing of the cliffs and one of the water sports guys got him some bait. Also must mention Paul the lifeguard he showed my husband some great jumping spots off the cliff. I’m sure there are others I’ve left out. We stayed in the Garden Patio which was perfect for us. Loved the relaxing patio. The only negative is it is next to lobby but not really a big deal. I needed a room with AC and it was nice and cool. So many great room options can’t wait to try one of the other rooms next time. The food was AMAZING 😍 We are foodie people and honestly we never had a bad meal. We ate on property probably more than we usually do since we were there during Hero’s weekend which is a Jamaican holiday so many places were closed. We love the Jamaican breakfast - Ackee and salt fish so we always upgraded our breakfast from the included meal. They will stock your frig with Red Stripe for a great price. Loved that. Super convenient vs going to the little grocery store across the way. Most of the people there were repeat guests which always says a lot about a property. No review is complete without mention Tensing!!! We have a big yellow lab so we loved hanging with Tensing. He is such a sweet dog 🐕 and I think he liked us too since he hung out at our room ❤️ We heard the puppies but never got to meet them. Maybe next trip. Thank you Tensing Pen for an amazing vacation!!! Can’t wait for our trip. Soon Come 🇯🇲…
