Zanzibar is a nice place to stay at. Around the bar there is plenty of space to sun. A free shower is available after swimming in the sea. Food is good and staff is friendly. Nearby are other bars, shops and facilities.

It is a nice beach with great facilities. We spend one day here and it was the ultimate relaxation. Swimming and snorkeling where a delight and the lunch was good for a fair price.

The place is known to be one of the nicest in Curaçao (which is not that difficult) and indeed this lounge is quite well located on Jan Thiel beach. But when it's about having Lunch there that things start to get average. 5 people in a raw asking us what we want to drink but none of them bringing us... More

Poor service and little food. I waited 20 minutes to place an order. The worst restaurant I’ve been in Curaçao.

Waited over 20 minutes for a drink at the bar... and this was after 30-45 minutes of trying to get service on the beach. The bartenders were either poorly trained or just did not feel like working that day. We had multiple people walk by us without so much as a look. When we finally flagged someone down, she asked...

The free range chicken and pizza were s favorite among our group! The drinks were my favorite on the island! It's a great atmosphere on the beach to relax and enjoy a great meal!

We had lunch here almost everyday during our 2 week stay on the island. And also dinner for most of the evenings. This place has it all; nice views, good atmosphere and tasty food at good price. Love this place!

For lunch you can go for the panini's, they are very nice. Sit back and relax on a beach chair, while they serve you. In the evening we went for the pizza's. Maybe a little bit expensive, but truly one of the best pizza's on the island. Especially the pepperoni and Libanese pizza. Just go and try it! We had... More
