This was our first trip to Negril and our first stay at Tensing Pen. What a wonderful place!! We stayed in Rock Cottage 1 and nothing beats opening your eyes and seeing the ocean right past your toes. The ocean is calm at TP due to the coves. We spent many a hour floating in the water. We never had...

My friends and I were recently guests in the Long House at Tensing Pen while running in the Reggae Marathon. We LOVED it. The staff is all very friendly. We ate at the hotel restaurant and at other locations. Each time we left the hotel, the staff arranged transportation and reservations. The coco bread is amazing and the chef made...

After more than 20 trips to Tensing Pen we have yet to be disappointed. It is truly our second home. Hurricane Sandy did have a few effects on Tensing Pen but none that interfered with the trip. Most noticeable was a few of the sea grapes that provide shade on some areas. We have seen this before at TP and...

This is my second trip to Tensing Pen. My wife found the place purely by accident last year, and we will most likely be long term returning guests. This vacation was shortly after hurricane sandy hit Jamaica, and while Negril was largely spared, some damage was taken from the storm surge along the coast. I have the impression however that...

This hotel is approximately 1 1/2 hours from Montego Bay's airport. Suggest you make online reservations beforehand for round trip transfer to and from hotel at a cost of around US$50. Otherwise, you could be paying US$70 one way. On your return, plan to arrive early to airport so that you could enjoy the local cuisine at the Island Grill...

I cannot say enough about Tensingpen and their staff. I went there for a friend's 25th anniversary. The resort is beautiful; the ceremony and food were 5 star. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. Excursions are easily planned-make sure you do Famous Vincent's Snorkeling and horseback riding where you ride in the ocean. I ended up in a special...

Not sure about the Trip Advisor rating system but after forty trips to Negril there is no question that Tensing Pen is by far the best location, has the best rooms and service and really great food. The value is also much better than these higher rated locations. The only problem is that they are mostly booked and it is...

Let me first say that if you are considering a destination wedding and/or vacation in Jamaica this place is absolutely a perfect choice! Tensing Pen is simply wonderful! It is a warm, intimate, refined rustic experience. The owners, the staff, the property, the food, the EVERYTHING is out of this world! We have stayed at 2 other places in Negril,...
