After the drive from Montego Bay we were welcomed to Tensing Pen with a cold glass of juice from the bar and the very friendly staff from the hotel. In addition, two of the most beautiful Norwegian Ridgebacks came to welcome us as well. The dogs live on the property and added a fun element to our stay. We traveled with our daughters ages 17 through 23. I would not recommend the place for young kids unless you are willing to keep a close eye on them. We loved the rooms and felt like we were in a very clean tree house! At night the waves crashing against the cliffs rocked us to sleep with a wonderful breeze coming in from the ocean. During the day we were greeted by a great breakfast in the main house in the morning. It's a great place to get to know the other guests as well because it is small and intimate. We loved having no tv, newspapers or telephones while we were there (although I checked my e-mails in the office once). We read lots of books, swam in the very warm ocean, jumped off the bridge and the cliffs, took yoga and did some major relaxing! Lots of great places to eat within walking distance and the food at Tensing Pen is great too. The rooms were clean although rustic. Not a lot of amenities, but you don't really need them there. We are planning on returning next year.
