My husband and I stayed here for a wedding. Tensing Pen had everything I wanted in a vacation. Cliff jumping for my adventurous side and hammocks and incredible views for my relaxing side. Each room was very unique. We stayed in the bungalow which was small and quaint (minus those pesky mosquitos). We didn't plan on spending too much time...

For years I have traveled to Mexico, Florida, California, and various other places for vacations. I just returned from Tensing Pen yesterday evening and am already looking to book a future trip. I can't say enough good things about this place! The staff truly care about their guests and treat everyone like they are royalty! The bartender, RB, went way...

We have been here twice in the last 6 months- and have loved each visit. From the beautiful Jamaican inspired rooms, fabulous sun sets, ample breakfast buffet and great service- Tensing Pen has it all. The atmosphere at this resort is what makes it so much more special then other resorts. I miss my covered sun bed by the pool...

If you want a get-away-from-it-all vacation, this is the place! Gorgeous views, private accomodations, attentive and courteous Jamaican staff, swimming in the turquoise Caribbean rocky cove or in the small but pristine pool. Satisfying continental breakfast of local fruits (pick your banNa off a stalk!), breads, cereal, juices and Blue Mountain coffee. Or, you can order a hot breakfast supplement...

Choose to have my September 4th, wedding at Tensing Pen because of its excellent private setting. My wedding planner Shanique was very pleasant and helpful. The environment was clean and peaceful. NATURE by itself was great. I got all I ask for within my budget. Thanks to Tensing Pen.

After staying at another hotel nearby for the last couple of years, we were curious to try something different. Tensing Pen is a beautiful property with plenty of 'hiding spots' for relaxing! Check-in was friendly and fast and we were escorted to our room in no-time. We stayed in the Garden Cabin and while the room was beautiful and comfortable,...

Unfortunately, we only got to stay one night. We stayed in Middle Pillar and had a beautiful view overlooking the ocean. Service was good (not great), and we enjoyed the location within walking distance of Rick's and Ivans Restaurant. I liked the "hut" feeling of Middle Pillar, but I would have preferred to have an indoor shower (the only shower...

I had the pleasure of staying at Tensing Pen over the summer for a girls' getaway trip which was 100% worth it! I stayed here a week before a major project to relax and unwind, it was great for stepping away from the usual hustle and bustle of the city and office life. Property I loved the peace and serendipity...
