Tensing Pen was the perfect place to spend our honeymoon. The hotel is kept immaculate, the people are so helpful and friendly, and you really feel like you've gotten away from it all. We loved the relaxed feel and the beautiful views from the cliffs. It was great to be able to come back to this relaxing location after being out on 7 Mile Beach. It east enough to take a 5 minute cab ride to 7 Mile if you want some quality beach time, but it was definitely nice to have the option to leave the area which feels very touristy. We stayed in the Cove Cottage which was really beautiful, but I don't think you could go wrong with any of the rooms. We'd like to stay in the Middle Pillar next time for the high view of the ocean and sunset. The food was amazing. The swimming was amazing. The people in the front office were very helpful with restaurant suggestions and arranging taxis to take us wherever we wanted to go.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Cove Cottage which was really beautiful, but I don't think you could go wrong with any of the rooms. We'd like to stay in the Middle Pillar next time for the high view of the ocean and sunset.

I got married at Tensing Pen in a bride and groom only ceremony last week. I first have to say thanks again to Shanique the T.P wedding coordinator who we exchanged multiple emails with in the months prior to the wedding. Very professional, patient, and hardworking (she also helps setup the wedding site) and she had everything we requested ready for the big day.

About Tensing itself; really gorgeous resort that never felt crowded at all (50% booked at the time we stayed there I believe). There are multiple ledges to jump into the water from (including the famous bridge) and multiple outdoor daybeds around the property. We felt very safe and everyone on staff we interacted with was very courteous and helpful. A self-serve continental breakfast spread is offered which consists of cereal, bread, PB&J, fresh fruits, coffee, and tea. We ate dinner at the resort twice which was good but if you want more of a local fare for breakfast or dinner you might have to go off-site (Sips and Bites a 5 min drive away has really good local food).

We stayed in Rock Cottage II which is their most popular room. The room has adequate AC and ceiling fan as well as a large porch with 2 outdoor daybeds, safe, in door bathroom, and a queen bed I believe. It is in a semi-private area of the resort with great views of the ocean from the front porch. We will definitely be back at some point in the future.

P.S If the couple that bought a bottle of Champaign for the bride and groom is reading this; we really appreciated it and wished we had the opportunity to say thanks!

Room Tip: We were in a room near the ocean (Rock Cottage II) and heard very little noise except the ocean. Great room and fairly private.

Tensing Pen was a perfect vacation for relaxing. The staff was unbelievably attentive and helpful. The food was incredible. The first night I was there, I got a seafood rice dish that came with fresh vegetables. All of the food and juice was fresh and delicious! Every staff member was wonderful to deal with, especially the bartenders and servers! As a somewhat nervous traveler, I felt extremely safe at Tensing Pen (it was a gated community with a guard at all times). The views are absolutely breathtaking. There are cliffs with dazzling turquoise water. There are hammocks in the shade if you want to take a quick nap. There are also ladders into the ocean, which is so blue and clear. Overall, this was one of the best vacations I have ever taken!

Room Tip: There are some rooms that have AC. We stayed in the Red Birch Cottage and it had a powerful AC system, which I liked!

We have been coming to Tensing Pen for 30 years and are always thrilled to be back. Laid back, beautiful, and fun, we can't imagine a better place to stay in Negril. The food is very good. Razor, the bartender, is hilarious. The staff can't do enough for you. We'd go on, but fear we won't be able to get reservations in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side are quieter. Most rooms close to the sea have dramatic views, but no air conditioning.
