We went 3 times during our stay to the Zenzi beach bar, since they had a sort of partnership with the hotel where we stayed. They have nice places to lay down and enjoy a whole day at the beach. Service is great and always nearby. We were mostly served by Martin and Carla, and they were always making sure... More

We stopped here to lay on the beach and have a bucket of beer and some nachos and it was perfect! The staff was amazing, the beach beds were comfy and shaded and we had a great time. I wish we went back for an evening, it looks like fun all day long!

Had a breakfast buffet for the wedding my guests the next day after the wedding by. Great food and good service. Location is right in on the beach. Recommend breakfast or lunch - sit and enjoy the sea breeze.

Great live music in a relaxed spot on the beach. Loved the atmosphere:) we had cocktails which were okay, but found the alcohol content light on. We did not eat there but food looked fantastic. If we were to go again we would try the free salsa lessons on Thursday night!

What's not to like? We did not eat here but it way more happening thanthe famed chain Blue Parrot. They claim live music every night (though by night they mean 5-9 pm, it seems). Band we saw was great, blues, Santana, took requests, very appropriate to the on-the-sand setting.

They decided at zenzi that they didn't want to have us there... we stayed for near an hour and nobody handed us a menu or even said hi... we asked to talk to the manager who seemed careless about it, he said nothing but "here's a menu" ...really?? Ee left!! And they didn't do or say nything... Hated zenzi!!! Too... More

We got a deal through our hotel so didn't pay for the sun longers so not sure how expensive they are but beers are averagely priced and food is too. Music was good and not too loud.
