    Hi Ladies,

    I am planning to get married in Negril in November 2009. Looking for another location on a tight schedule ... yikes!

    The Tensing Pen looks like an absolutely amazing wedding venue but the only drawback is that only a few rooms have AC. I was wondering if any brides that have had their weddings there have had any complaints from guests re:no AC?

        I have not stayed at Tensing Pen but my wedding will be there... I have visited Jamaica and the Tensing Pen property in December and April. Jamaica is what I think most Americans from the north consider hot all year round, but at night is when you need the A/C and Tensing Pen is surrounded by the ocean and has breezes that flow through the rooms, many of which are shaded by trees. Both of those things make the A/C less necessary. I have some guests who can't imagine being refrigerated at all times. They also could not imagine not having a TV, Tensing Pen does not have phones or TV's in the rooms. Nearby Rockhouse is a good alternative for those guest who must have A/C.

        I prefer not to have the A/C and have never had one in my home.

          I haven't stayed at Tensing Pen, but I stayed at the Caves which is right up the road - also on the cliffs. We did not have AC in our room, and never missed it. At night, we actually closed the windows because it was cool. The resort I got married at also did not have AC. If you are on the water, most places in Jamaica don't need it...

              Wow! The photos of Tensing Pen are beautiful. thanks for posting them.

              I found a great wedding planner who suggested another beautiful location on the cliffs, Villas Sur Mer. So I'm hoping this one will work out!
