we stayed here 3 days and left for our other resort...only to return 3 more times to tensing Pen to enjoy the property. They were so accomodating. This place has an amazing feel for it and never dissapointed us.

Safely Cliff Jump and Snorkel in Paradise
AMAZING! You can't beat the natural beauty of these cliffs! Stay right on the water in a private bungalow among the trees and listen to the waves crashing into the cliffs, lulling you into sleep. Safely jump from these cliffs into crystal clear, warm Caribbean waters and snorkel with beautiful tropical fish. You're gonna love this unique boutique hotel that gives you unobstructed west-facing views of the sunset. Romantic, quiet, secluded, paradise.

What can I say about this awesome hotel that other reviews haven't already said? Incredible service all around. Special thanks to Niney for the nature walk/tour and all of the great tips he gave us about native vegetation whenever we saw him. Great food at the on-site restaurant. Great service from the bar. Impeccable grounds. We stayed in the lowest priced garden view room which was awesome but wasn't very private as there was a walk-way right in front and we had to leave the shades/slats on the windows closed at all times. I highly suggest spending the extra $25 or so a night for an upgrade garden room which also have larger balconies and provide a bit more privacy. There are a few restaraunt options within walking distance including the famous Rick's Cafe. If you want a beach experience, it's a cab ride away to get to the beach for more restaraunt and shopping options. I'd suggest that if you have an extended vacation planned, spend 2-3 nights at a place on the 7 mile beach and wrap up with a week at Tensing Pen. Be aware that there are two large "house dogs", Tensing and Beezy, that roam the hotel freely but they are gentle and want to be everyone's friend. I just mention in case there are folks afraid of dogs that should be aware. We will definitely be back!

Best hotel in the West End.

Fair 4.0
If you want slow service, go to this hotel. NOTHING moves quickly there but again it is Jamaica. The rooms have nothing in them but a bed and a bathroom. The room you get makes a big difference so know where you will be located. Some are almost streetside. Some are more quaint with porches and thatch roofing. The food is not good in my own personal opinion. The cliffs are cool but there is no sand anywhere which I missed. The dog on the property is low key but sits on all the chairs which I didn't like. The people working at the hotel know nothing about the hotel itself. They don't know why it is named what it is nor can they answer even general questions about it. Whatever you do, leave the hotel an browse the local area and no matter how long the drive, go see the other sights that you think would be fun to see. Most sight seeing places are 2-3 hour drives from this hotel.

This place is truly exquisite. Each room has a different name, offers a different experience, and will appeal to a different kind of guest. The Pillars have outdoor showers on the lower level and are equipped with a balchony overlooking the ocean. *Pine Pillar is the only one of the “Pillars” that has A/C. “Bungalow”, where we stayed, features a large patio, a queen-sized bed, and a moon roof. Save for the roof, it’s nestled mostly under a canopy of trees, near the “Garden” villas, and adjacent to “Long House”, which overlooks the cove and bridge. If you enjoy the sound of crashing waves at night, you’ll want to choose “Cove Cottage”. However, its proximity to the property’s most Instagrammable features (the cove and bridge) may attract loitering by scantily clad guests endeavouring to take photos of other scantily clad guests, from the vantage point of your room. Pros and cons. The staff were all courteous and accommodating. Unlike your average all-inclusive, you won’t spend 30-40 minutes in the lobby waiting to check in, and you won’t be subjected to solicitation or haggling by outside vendors on the beach. (There’s no beach here.) Tensing Pen was designed for the more discerning among us, and appeals to young professionals and empty nesters alike. We appeared to be the youngest guests present (late 20s, early 30s), and we didn’t come across anyone or anything that we found obnoxious. Our only regret was ‘not staying longer’.

Great hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms and grounds were beautiful and the cliffs and pool area were awesome. Really nice place to relax in the sun and jump into the sea from the bridge to cool off.
