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,...

Tensing pen provided a very relaxing, enjoyable, and memorable experience for a getaway vacation and destination wedding. Even with the aftermath of hurricane sandy, our trip was unforgettable. Tensing staff were helpful, polite, and easy to connect with. Most exciting part of the trip was the cliff and bridge jumping. Truly a paradise. Make sure to get to know the...

If you are looking for a romantic relaxed atmosphere, then Tensing Pen is your place. Pros - Privacey, quaint, clean, away from the "party", best for couples/adults, food is excellent, walking distance to the famous Rick's Cafe. Love the waves crashing against the cliffs. Love the high cliffs to jump from into the deep clear turquoise water. Love the massages...

My husband and I have been to Negril several times. We've always stayed on 7 Mile beach at the all inclusives, but wanted to try the cliffs and "get out more". The room was much more beautiful than the pictures - which is remarkable! We stayed in Rock Cottage 1 facing the ocean. We could lie in bed and watch/hear...

I truly miss the staff, the guests we met, Negril. We felt at home right away with the staff. We would wake up every morning and go to breakfast and get to see the same familiar faces starting their day. It truly, to me, felt like a little family with the guests and staff. It is true there is not...

We booked our 10 day stay at Tensing Pen almost exactly 1 year before the trip - highly recommended if you want to stay in one room for the entire trip as this place is hard to get into for more than a few days at a time, on shorter notice! If you are booking on shorter notice, call rather...
