Tensing Pen is absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the Rock Cottage 1 which was amazing!! The views cannot be beat. The cottage was clean and extremely comfortable. This is our second stay at Tensing Pen and cannot wait to return. The ocean is beautiful and great for swimming, floating and snorkeling right at the property. The staff is all wonderful!...

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....

Small, beautiful views, rustic. Cottages that you won't find anywhere else. Friendly helpful staff. Cottages with thatched roofs sit up on stone pillars that look out over the Caribbean. Quiet at night. Excellent restaurant!

This was one of the most gorgeous places I have ever been. I adored the layout of the resort--it had all these wonderful little spots to lay out and relax without being right next to a bunch of other guests. The food was really good (and affordable) and the included breakfast (with all day coffee and tea) was a great...
