This was one of the most gorgeous places I have ever been. I adored the layout of the resort--it had all these wonderful little spots to lay out and relax without being right next to a bunch of other guests. The food was really good (and affordable) and the included breakfast (with all day coffee and tea) was a great...

One of our friends, who is a veteran of a dozen vacations in Negril, recommended TP and joined us with his girlfriend. He had never...

We have been visiting Tensing Pen since 1999. However, it has been about 4 years since we stayed there. This trip was one of our best yet and we fell in love all over again with one of the few places that speaks directly to our heart and soul.
