Stayed 4 nights in Garden room B. Nice little cottage. Great porch. This place is quiet with lots of greenery around the cottage. Great place for a couple to chill out. Food was good. The restaurant closed at 9 every night and they do not make any drinks other than what is on the menu. You could see the ocean...

My wife and I stayed at Tensing Pen Resort in Jamaica for four days, attending my niece's wedding (her fiance's family, from Canada, have been vacationing there for 20+ years!), and found the place to be spectacular. The resort has several thatch-roofed cottages spread out over the property, in varying sizes and styles, surrounded by lush vegetation and all with...

I just returned from Jamaica doing sit inspections at several all inclusive resorts and independent resorts and I will have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by Tensing Pen. It was so cute and romantic. If you are looking for a truly unique, quiet and romantic vacation, this is the spot. It is the complete opposite of an all...

Paradise! This place is beautiful, romantic, and awesome. We stayed in the North Pillar, which had a beautiful view, we loved it! It doesn't have AC, in case you need that, but we were fine with the ceiling fan and a standing rotating fan. The queen bed was very comfortable and the pillows too. It is rustic and beautiful! The...

Tensing Pen was fantastic. We were there for a wedding and had the Cove Cottage. We were greeted by the front desk staff, a cool towel and a rum punch. The staff really stands out...Razor, Malcolm, Tracy and the rest of the staff were fantastic, and that is what really makes Tensing Pen amazing.

We stayed at an all inclusive resort on the beach in Negril for our first half of our honeymoon & when we came to Tensing Pen for the last half (April 12-16), I almost cried it was so beautiful. It was sexier, quieter, more romantic, and way more peaceful. The perfect spot for our honeymoon. The rooms were rustic &...

Just stayed from 11 April through 14 April 2013 and had (per usual) an amazing time. We first found this place 8 years ago (before they even had a pool !) and keep coming back. Love it so much that we even had our wedding there 5 years ago. We have stayed in many of the various cottages and huts...

This is a much different experience than you would get on the beach. Sometimes it seemed like you were the only ones there. Stayed April 10-17th. We were in the Cove cottage it was nice and very clean. The beds are really comfortable. But due to it's location, and surrounding vegitation, it gets very little breeze, and there isn't a...

The accommodations are fantastic and the setting is second to none. It was so nice to have the quality accommodations, friendly staff, and good food in a place that never gets crowded. The setting on the rocks with access to the ocean gives you the best of Jamaica without the crowds at the beach. We felt perfectly safe walking outside...

We found the Tensign Pen to be the perfect match for us. We took both the South House 1 and 2 rooms for us and our two children. We loved jumping off the bridge and the cliffs into the ocean. The views were spectacular. Also, the restaurant for dinner was exceptional. We ate there several times during our stay and...
