We got a great deal I. The low season. The cliffs swimming was amazing. Their food was reasonably priced and tasty (breakfast and lunch, not sure about dinner.) The accommodations were comprised of much higher quality material than we'd seen thus far on our trip and was immaculately attended to. This is not a place we're guests "party" together, from...

The room was kitted out with Jamaican flair and the beds were super comfy! You get a great complimentary breakfast to kick start your day and it's A 2 min walk...

This is definitely a review with mixed feelings. The staff at Tensing Pen was friendly and helpful. We booked through TripAdvisor which booked through Expedia - which did not have correct information. We were only given a choice of garden view or ocean view, and were not told when booking that our room was one of three which did not...

We spent a night here and absolutely loved it. Was a nice quiet hidden away gem. Would definitely go back again. Great location away from the strip. Awesome views. Our cottage was very nice. Stayed in the patio cottage

Tony and I fell in love here. Then we got married and we had to return to this magical place where we became "One and One"...Everything about it just feels good mon.

Very high price for what it offers. Average room, a very limited breakfast with nothing included and you need to pay every extra even for 1 egg (4$). A hotel that looks good from the pictures but it's really nothing special!
