Tensing Pen Brides?

Recommended Posts

Congrats mrseyes! I'm sure you'll have a beautiful day! I'm sure the new WC will be of more help; unfortunately the old one turned me off with her nonchalant attitude. At least pretend you're as excited as I am for my wedding day even though you see dozens a year, lol!

Hi Ladies,

 

I just came back from a trip to negril and I am debating between Rockhouse and Tensing Pen. I plan to have about 80 guests, and I like both hotels, but Rockhouse's requirements turn me off! They require 27 rooms booked in order to host your wedding. Although I plan to have 80 guests, my cheapo family will def try to squeeze 4 to a room in as many rooms as possible, and since they only have 14 of the rooms priced between 120-150 a night and the rest, priced at $220 ( only two at this price)-350, I'm just not sure it can be done. i just sent an email to Shanique at Tensing Pen. Hopefully, they are more flexible

UGH!!!

 

All of the hidden fees at Tensing are killing me.

 

Shanique sends me the following confusing message:

 

1. It is my understanding that there are additional fees per person:

$10/per person for a set up fee and $7/ per chair cover. Is this correct? Should I be adding an additional $17 per person?

 

The costing for the set up and break up fee is subject to change depending on the final number of your wedding party.

The costing for the chairs, chair covers and bows is US$7 per person.

I can tell you that the Tensing Pen is beautiful. I just went and looked at the wedding location. It is awesome. This place is the most relaxing place I have ever been.

We are having dinner at Catch a Falling Star tonite. I will post my thoughts about the location later tonite.

I visisted both places last week. I was in Negril for a wedding and figured I'd kill two birds with one stone. Rockhouse was my first pic, but too damn expensive. Now I'm choosing between Tensing and Catcha. Catcha is, so far, the cheapest, but I don't think it will be as nice. Let me know what you think! If you see Marvette or Andrea at Catcha tell them Lisa ( the bride andrea has been emailing), wants your opinion :).

Here are my thoughts. I think catcha is very nice. The food was the best I have eaten in Jamaica. I did not see the ceremony site. I think a reception by their pool would be beautiful. However, if it were my wedding, I would choose the tensing pen. It has a rustic beauty that is untouchable.

Thanks for your opinion! I'm doing the math tomorrow ( once I have all of the prices) and will make a decision based on that. If when it comes down to it, tensing is not so much more, i will go that route. Besides, Tensing can hold 80 people, so I can invite a few more. Catcha can hold 60 tops...so i was really cutting people out.

LisaAndDre, just be careful of the hidden fees at Tensing. I found this out from another bride that used to be on this forum and had some issues with Tensing. She was the one that alerted me to a $10 set up fee per guest- made me wonder what else they would be charging for! I'd rather know up front what I'm getting into...Rockhouse doesn't even charge for day passes, and if the rooms are split between 3-4 people the price isn't that bad at all! Just be sure to check everything out.
