We truly enjoyed our stay at TPR. The grounds are lovely. The staff is warm and welcoming, and very attentive. We took advantage of the wonderful massage offered (thanks Georgia, and Pamela!), and the yoga. The food was delicious, served up by the charming Leroy (aka Splinter!), and the drinks from the bar (per Razor Blade!) were delicious! Try the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Over the past 15 years we have visited Tensing Pen at least 1/2 dozen times, I have remained reluctant to write a review....only because we would love to keep Tensing a secret. But when there's a place so special, you want to tell everyone! From the stunning property, to the amazing sunsets and everything in between you cannot go wrong....

Being on the cliffs of negril is magical and the vibe is just so relaxing. Really recommend the massage by the ocean. They do a great job. Malcolm impressed me in the dining hall. Rooms are little dated and could use some renewing imo. Overall I was happy with my stay.

Dear FreedomChild, We appreciate you taking the time in posting your review. We are happy to hear Mr. Malcom exceeded your expectation, he is a wonderful gentleman. Our rooms being hand-built by local artisans, with handcrafted materials, need more upkeep than a standard "concrete and cement everywhere" all-inclusive, but our staff is very attentive too it. Hope to see you...

This was our second trip to Tensing and we loved it. We enjoy that it is laid back, quiet, well kept. We stayed in the Cove Cottage this trip and loved hearing the sound of the ocean crash into the cove all night long. Our bed was very comfortable and the option to turn on the AC was a bonus....

Great spot to get away from it all. Up on the cliffs, the swimming and cliff jumping was paired wonderfully with the sunbathing and pampering. Friendly staff, great meals, unbelievable views, comfortable accommodations. Just wish we stayed longer. We would recommend for couples who like to unplug.

My husband booked our trip to Tensing Pen Resort. I wasn't sure what to expect on our drive from Montego Bay to Negril. We passed many all inclusive resorts and I was hoping our accommodations would be as nice. When we pulled up to Tensing Pen I was thrilled!!! This Boutique style hotel exceeded my expectations.
