Just finished a five day vacation staying at Tensing Pen. Honestly, what more could you ask for in a Jamaican resort. Located on the beautiful cliffs on the West Side of Negril, (and a short ridw to the commercial 7 mile beach) this is a small, boutique resort that caters to your every need. This visit we stayed in North...

It's one of those places where you want to tell people that they won't like it just so that you can keep it to yourself. It's a paradise; a playground for adults. It's quiet, peaceful and it feels like you're at a cottage somewhere back home except you're in beautiful Negril! You get to watch some of the most beautiful...

My wife and I stayed 5 nights in the North pillar and the best part was sitting out on the balcony stirring at the sea no more the 50 yards away and being able to keep your balcony doors open all day and night. It is a little more private then the other pillars but you don't hear the waves...

My husband and I stayed at Rock Cottage One for a week from the end of January to the beginning of February. We spent our anniversary there. It was so incredibly beautiful! Our patio opened up to the ocean, and every evening we could see the sun setting into the water. The staff at the office was fantastic, and we...

We stayed at Tensing for 5 days and it was the most relaxing, spectacular trip I can remember. We stayed in seagrape and it was beautiful, open air, full view of the sea and cliff, quiet, perfect. Hot during the day and cool at night. We had no bug problems in January but we did use the nets at night...

My wife and I just returned from our trip to Tensing Pen last week and already we are trying to figure out when we can go back.
