Upon our arrival at Tensing Pen, my family and I were greeted with hot towelettes and a refreshing drink by the courteous staff. From the moment you walk in, you can start relaxing!

Tensing Pen is by far my favorite Caribbean destination. It's 100% Jamaican, for one, the real deal. Instead of finding yet another homogenized spa resort with all the same old amenities, everything from the thatched cottages to the food is unique, casually yet also gracefully done. It's a relatively small resort, holding maybe a maximum of about 40 people. Breakfast...

My wife and I stayed at Tensing Pen on our Honeymoon in October of 2012. We arrived and the resort was beautiful, the staff was kind and very helpful when they could be. This is the only positives we could say because the trouble started with walking into our room. Since it was our honeymoon we went ahead and paid...

TENSING PEN - A GREAT PLACE FOR "ROUGHING IT" While we respect the views of nwd07 we find the claims surprising. Our records indicate that this guest was informed that we were hosting a wedding during the chosen dates of stay and that the cottage selected has no air conditioning . When this guest made a complaint in our Front...

The Tensing Pen is perfect for those seeking peace and quiet, set on a beautiful cliff. The rooms are gorgeous, intricately handcrafted and look out onto the stunning ocean. An ideal location for couples.

In short, Tensing Pen is amazing if your looking for an intimate, seaside resort with character. The people are really wonderful, the food is soooo good and the location really chill. I like how you feel that you're in Jamaica at Tensing Pen. It's not one of those enormous all-inclusive compounds where you could be anywhere in the world. It's...

To start with this property is one of the most interesting and serene places I have ever been. We stayed in the Long House with our family. It is by far the best view as it is front and center directly behind the bridge that connects the two halves of the resort. We stay here after four days on 7...
