My wife and I travelled to this hotel in November for my 50th birthday and needless to say I wouldn't have had it any other way. From beginning to end the trip was over the top if you want to get away from the hustle and bussle and just sit back and enjoy paradise. Just not having any electronics in the room or the area makes you think where am I, as there are not cellphones going off or everyone carrying a blackberry. Leave them at home and if you really need to use a computer there is wifi in the lobby. The grounds and the buildings were amazing and the staff kept apologizing for the hurricane that had done some damage to the property. Staff were great and workers were cleaning up the remainder of the damaged areas. The cottages were fantastic and created the relaxing atmosphere that is Tensing Pen. The continental breakfast was simple but satisfying and eating at Tensing Pen or any of the boutique hotels or small restaurants in the area and all are reasonable. Go and see Leroy and Rose in the tin shack across the street for a fabulous jerk chicken plate of food. They will make you smile everyday. Alices across the street was also great and we can really say that every place we ate from the Rockhouse to Catch a falling star and Tensing Pen offered great food. We walked on the road day and night and felt very safe. We walked into the Town of Negril on two occassions (1. hr) walk. A few stores around but nice to go into the local area stores and see their wares and share in some of their foods. There is nothing like sitting on a cliff every night watching the sun slowly drop into the ocean with a rum and coke or a glass of wine and the new friends you meet. We met people from all over at this resort and a lot of them are returnies.... 4th time 6th time and we now see why as we will definitely be going back.
