When an American lady and a Jamaican gentleman had an idea back in 2017 to build a custom one of a kind motorized Tiki bar, nothing could stop us. Our dream became reality in 2018 when our cruising Tiki boat first set sail on the world renowned 7 mile beach in Negril. We made history in Jamaica as nothing like this had ever set sail on Jamaican shores. We take much pride in knowing that our Tiki is 100% Jamaican made and built from the ground up by local Jamaican boat builders. When booking with us know that you are supporting a small family owned and operated business that employs an amazing crew of local Jamaicans to guide and entertain our guests. Our floating bar and famous rum punch is ready to host your own personal party Pon Da sea!! We greatly value and appreciate your support to our Tiki Family!!

The Dreamer catamaran was an excellent choice of excursions while docked in Jamaica. Even those who did not choose to snorkel had a wonderful time. The crew was very interested in making sure everyone had a good time. I'd recommend this excursion for all ages. Dreamer Catamaran Sail and Lagoon Snorkel
Crew did a great job. Food, water, rum drinks and foot massage as well as the captain giving us a history and environmental lecture completed. The beautiful reef and fishes. Montego Bay Sailing Tour Guest
It is a breath of fresh air to work with a vendor who is reliable, honest and understanding. Words are unlimited in describing the team at Dreamer Catamarans as they go beyond the call of duty to ensure that everything is done with excellence and expeditiously, always with the customer top of mind. The boats are of the best quality and kept in pristine order. Myrtle Dwyer, Glamour Destination Management
As we got on the catamaran it was a perfect day. The staff were gracious and informative. We had a great sail to the snorkel site and plenty of time in the water. After snorkelling we had a tour of the bay and lots of rum punch and beer. Great day of snorkeling!

How a couple from Cleveland ended up owning one of the top resorts in Jamaica

  • Published: May. 15, 2024, 8:23 a.m.

Tensing Pen, Jamaica

  • Susan Glaser, cleveland.com

NEGRIL, Jamaica – Before he was building some of Northeast Ohio’s most notable residential developments, Clevelander Sam Petros was peddling everything from tennis shoes to cigarette lighters to fake Rolex watches on the streets of Jamaica.

He was in his early 20s and trying to figure out a way to pay for his frequent trips to the Caribbean nation.

Twenty years later, Petros discovered an easier – if more expensive – way to guarantee those frequent visits to the island paradise. He bought his favorite resort.

If it comes as something of a surprise that a lifelong Clevelander owns a resort in the Caribbean, it wasn’t exactly in Petros’ business plan either.

Still, said Petros, now 67, “I don’t think I would trade it for anything. It really enriches our lives.”

Buying a Jamaican resort

In Cleveland, Sam Petros, CEO of Petros Development Group, is perhaps best known for the many residential developments he’s helped build, from upscale suburban housing neighborhoods to One University Circle, the high-rise apartment complex across from the Cleveland Museum of Art.

In Jamaica, he’s known for something else entirely: Saving one of the country’s most beloved resorts, Tensing Pen, with 26 suites and cottages on the cliffs of Negril.

The small resort is a short walk to Rick’s Café, the well-known tourist destination where visitors famously leap from the rocky cliffs into the turquoise sea, and a short drive to Negril’s spectacular Seven Mile Beach. It consistently ranks among the Caribbean’s very best resorts on lists compiled by Travel + Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler and other travel publications.

“I’ve never been to a resort like it anywhere,” said North Olmsted travel agent Kathy Yarian, who has been recommending Tensing Pen for years, but only recently learned it was owned by fellow Clevelanders. “I like that it’s so small and quaint. The entire resort is on the cliffs in Negril which is perfect. You can jump off the cliffs into the beautiful clear water. It’s a very romantic resort, too. It’s truly a quiet getaway but you can get to the action in Negril, which is close by.”

The story of how Petros came to own Tensing Pen is long, complicated and dates back decades.

Among the highlights:

* Petros first went to Jamaica in the early 1970s, looking for someplace warm to hang out. He fell in love with Negril, on the island’s west coast, which he described as a “sleepy fishing town” back then. He was young and poor and funded his return trips by traveling with needed items that were in short supply in Jamaica – from tennis shoes to cigarette lighters to fake luxury watches. “I had to figure out how I could afford to go back.”

* His real estate career took off in the late 1970s and 1980s, and Petros moved to Singapore for 10 years, where he worked on numerous development projects. When he came back to Northeast Ohio in the late 1980s, he renewed his love for Jamaica. He discovered Tensing Pen during this period, founded in the early 1970s on the cliffs overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

* The resort was sold in the early 1990s to an American who called the property the Love Solution and made some other changes that chased visitors away, according to Petros. “I told them – if you ever want to sell, let me know.”

After the owner’s death in the early 1990s, his wife called Petros and offered to sell him the resort. Petros responded: “I don’t care what it takes. I’m buying it.”

Petros brought back the resort’s previous owners, Karin and Richard Murray, and ran the property with them for 25 years. Petros and his wife, Anne-Marie Petros – they married in 1996 – have been the sole owners since 2017.

Along the way, they’ve faced numerous challenges – from hurricanes to COVID to economic downturns. Hurricane Ivan in 2004 was particularly destructive, wiping out three-quarters of the resort, said Anne-Marie Petros.

“It’s not a brain investment, it’s a heart investment,” she said. “We hold our breath every summer.”

After the destruction in 2004, the Petros took the opportunity to add a swimming pool and convert the large house on the property into a restaurant. More recently, they’ve expanded the restaurant, remodeled bathrooms and rebuilt the resort’s iconic treehouse suites.

The motto of the resort is “Life is Simple.”

There are no TVs, no radios, no phones, said Sam Petros. There are also no all-you-can-eat buffets.

The Petroses have steadfastly resisted the urge to convert Tensing Pen into an all-inclusive resort, which have sprouted across Jamaica in recent decades.

“We will never be an all-inclusive,” said Anne-Marie Petros. “We’re super supportive of the restaurants in the area.”

The couple, who live in Hinckley when they’re not in Jamaica, typically makes about a half-dozen trips from Cleveland to Negril every year. In the early days, before the hospitality infrastructure developed, they traveled with suitcases filled with sheets, towels, coffee makers and other items that were difficult to find in Jamaica.

Speaking of traveling from Cleveland -- Sam Petros lamented the early cancellation of Cleveland’s first nonstop service to Jamaica, which started in March on Frontier Airlines and will end in June. Petros said hopes the airline gives the route another chance. “They should have started it in October, not March,” he said.

The resort’s name is a reference to Tenzing Norgay, the Nepalese sherpa who accompanied Edmund Hillary to the summit of Mount Everest in 1953. Previous owners named the resort after their dog Tensing, and the name stuck.

The dog theme has been retained at the resort, which is home to three Rhodesian Ridgebacks, a large breed that is known for its tolerance to heat. “They take turns staying with guests who love dogs,” said Anne-Marie Petros. “We’ve become known as the resort with the dogs.”

Sam Petros said he can’t take credit for developing the resort’s laid-back atmosphere. “I’d like to say I created the culture at Tensing Pen. I didn’t. I just continued it.”

The Red Stripe Catamaran is perfect for a small group. It is anchored in front of the Boat Bar which is exactly mid-beach on the main beach area of Long Bay and beside Rondel Resort. Look for a petite Jamaican woman wearing a huge sun hat named Myrna. She is the agent for the boat and when not walking the beach can be found at the Boat Bar.

My husband and i would love a very private day sail just for the two of usn and a crew. Anyone have ideas as to where to start looking?

Private cat charters start at $900.00 usd. $45.00 pp min of 20 people.

yacht rentals in negril jamaica

If you are willing to charter a glass bottom boat (as opposed to a cat or sailboat) likely it will be fairly affordable. There are many of them anchored along the beach to choose from.

An example of what I have paid for a snorkeling trip of about an hour or so is $20US per person, so depending on how long you and the hubby want to stay out, do the math and negotiate with the captain.

Make sure you also explain "any special requests" you have with the captain so there are no misunderstandings. Then you can wear whatever you like (;~})

better yet Ellie...my recommendation for you and your 'tastes' ...jump on the Hedo boat. Totally !

Ok I'll indulge you with a response.

We're looking for more than a Hobie Cat...............someting in the 30-40' range......we realize the cost likely will be $1,000-$1,750. That's not an issue.

People .....................please don't obsess as to what we might or might not wear. That'll be between us and the captain.

http://www.negrilonestop.com/tours_catamaran.shtml

Ellie, I too will honour you with a response. lol.

No one is obsessing about your lack of clothing options.

I believe people are recommending things now to you with your 'tastes' in mind but more importantly to respect everyone else.
