Renfrew, Pennsylvania
Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We stayed in the Seagrape II, absolutely beautiful view of the water/sunset from our balcony! The villa style hotel was nice and clean, the staff was very helpful and pleasant, the food was lovely, and the snorkeling can't be beat. We saw small sting rays, an eel, and a wide array of fish. So beautiful and peaceful without the bustle...

Dear Juliette B. Thank you for this great review of Tensing Pen. We are so glad you chose to stay with us. The Long House is such a lovely choice for 2 or 3 couples, and it seems you had a good time, since you jumped off the bridge :) We look forward to welcoming you again to Tensing Pen,...

Great view, relax place, nice place to jump the cliffs, good service, nice place to couples. The hotel have a bridge over the cliffs, perfect to jump. It's a little bit expensive and they charge for omelets in the breakfast. But everything was good

Anyone can look at the pictures online and tell that this place is paradise but what left a mark on me more than anything was the kind and warm people that worked so hard to keep us happy during our stay. Massive thanks to all our new friends and apologies for those whose names I may have missed or misspelled....

We loved everything about Tensing Pen. The views, the people, the property. It is just magical! Every morning we would drink delicious orange juice and jump off of the bridge into the water. We had a wonderful massage and facial. I highly recommend Tensing Pen.

Garden like location with good snorkeling. Expect to be greeted by the two Rhodesian ridge-back dogs, they are very friendly and perfectly safe. Best part was no TV.

One of the coolest and romantic resorts we've been to. Food was really good and didn't feel we had to go anywhere though we did venture out. Clean, quiet and comfortable. Great choice for those who want to keep things low key and relaxed. No tvs or phones but good internet. Take a < 10 minute cab ride to the...

We have always done the beachy, palm tree, all inclusive thing and decided to go a bit off the grid. Tensing Pen was just the thing my wife and I were looking for. Small resort with excellent cottages, well appointed. Crisp white sheets with four poster beds, and the verandah faces the setting sun! What more could you ask for....

We stayed at Tensing Pen for 7 nights. In hindsight we probably should've stayed 5. While the property is absolutely beautiful, there really isn't much to do. There were several times that we were literally the only guests milling around, very quiet. We floated in the ocean every morning for two hours after breakfast, had lunch and then from around...
