“Loved our lunch here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Just got back from a trip to the area and spent a couple afternoons in Playa. One of our afternoons we spent 3 hours just sitting at Zenzi, having lunch, drinks, and enjoying the perfect view of the beach. Very laid back place; Fernando, our waiter, never hurried us and actually encouraged us to just chill and stay as long as we would like, which we really appreciated!. My husband's blackened tuna sandwich was great, as was my pepito sandwich. Prices were reasonable, too. Zenzi is on our iist next time we are back in PDC!

“Solid beach club”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

Great location and gorgeous stretch of beach. Not overly crowded, like the beach down towards Benitio Juarez. Pleasant staff and nice loungers

“slow service cold food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Service was slow, and so was the food. Even ordered water that never was served, although on the bill.

“love it!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

This beach bar was fantastic, open all day, they offer tons of delicious food and definitely some great drinks. They have a daily special for food every day. My favorite day was sunday as they had a BBQ on the beach EVERY sunday. For all you can eat BBQ chicken, ribs, burgers and sausage.
