I have lost count, but I think this April 2022 trip was our 15th visit to Tensing Pen.We missed last year, due to Covid and, like everyone everywhere, our mental health needed a boost which we knew the resort would provide. As soon as we arrived, we felt restored and rejuvenated. The beauty of the place overwhelms me each and every time we arrive and it truly feels like being welcomed home. The lodge at TP is my favorite place to have breakfast overlooking the beautiful blue sea. Fresh fruit and pastries and that incredible coffee! Actually, every single meal is not only delicious but served with that view and the warmth of the servers and chefs. The staff is always gracious and friendly throughout the entire property. This was our first time going in April rather than February and it was a bit more rainy then we are used to. However, the cozy cottages with the covered porches are the perfect place to enjoy a tropical rain shower. We are already looking forward to next year.....

From the amazing accommodations, Spectacular staff and out of this world views and sunsets, there is no better place than this! If you love dogs, bring treats for Tensing, Obi and Zuri, the huge and docile Rhodesian Ridgebacks who will be your best friends for treats and a rub. Calene, the sweet and efficient coffee and breakfast waitress who starts our day, to Palmer, Razor, Rooster, Crystal and ALL the staff who work tired to make the resort beautiful and guests’ desires realities. Dining is a whole other exquisite experience with specials each night that tantalize and taunt the taste buds.

I just got back from a week at this exquisite boutique hotel on the cliffs of Negril. It’s an amazing place.. beautiful setting amongst tropical gardens with breathtaking sunsets. Imagine how it feels to get the best massage you’ve ever had by either Georgia Maxcine or Pamela and then to go back to the lodge where Razor makes you the best dirty banana you’ve ever had while the sky is turning scarlet. The feeling of relaxation and peacefulness prevails the entire time you are there due to the entire staff from the minute you are greeted by the lovely women at the front desk, the hospitality from the entire wait staff and the morning greetings from the gardeners while you are having coffee on your terrace. The rooms are kept spotless and fresh from the housekeeping staff and anything you may need is taken care of immediately. My friends and I love coming here every year meeting new friends and seeing old friends that also return year after year. Sophie K Long Island New York

We stayed at Tensing Pen the first night of our honeymoon and can’t wait to return! One night was not enough at this beautiful resort! The grounds are immaculate and the service is top notch! I was too nervous to jump off the bridge this time around, but will try again in November! Thank you for a great start to our Jamaican honeymoon!

Just returned from a week "working vacation" in Negril / Tensing Pen. I don't know how else to say it but this place (repeat visitor) just MELTS me and makes time almost seem to slow down. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the bed/bedding is well above average. The views (I always choose an elevated room) are just out of this world and every evening, I'd almost couldn't wait to go to bed as listening to the ocean waves as you are lying in bed is absolutely THERAPEUTIC. Last and certainly not least, the staff here are excellent with a wonderful balance of friendliness and professionalism.... still sad that the masks are hiding all the warm Jamaican smiles. If you enjoy absolute serenity, top-notch service and amenities... LOOK NO FURTHER!
