This is a popular beach and it gets crowded fast. Go early if you want to find chairs.
Water was clean, a bit rocky getting in.
The food at Zest beach bar was decent and service was good.
The infinity pool at papagayo is nice to look at but it feels like you're swimming in sunscreen rather than water.
Service seemed spotty. Late afternoon we sat at one of the tables for a drink. We tried to flag 2 people to order. One ignored us,
the other said her collegue would come to take our order but half an hour later we were still waiting.
In the end we had to go the the bar to get the drinks ourselves.
The shopping center is small but good place to go to get out of the sun for a bit.

Jan Thiel beach was a last day program for our tourism trip but it paid back. The beach is totally artificial, it looks quite a swimming pool but it is a very pleasant place. There is a lot of beach chairs, showers, restrooms and restaurant and bar service. In fact the bar has people circulating in the sand area that can bring your orders directly to you. The restaurant together with the bar offered a good meal, you can try. And turning to the beach, despite it is artificial, do not forget to take your mask and snorkel, it is good. You will pay for the entrance, but I think it is worthwhile. There is a parking area you can leave you car. The bech chairs also require a fee. Anyway, I recommend visit and if you have a chance take a look at the side of the beach in the Papagayo and Zesta clubs that are seen as good places for the night in front of the sea.

good for friends, families, teens, adults; also for sitting, swimming, chatting, dancing. saturday evenings / nights are great. Happy hour at zanzibar from 5 to 6pm. Nice place to watch the sunset. U can hire chairs and towels at zanzibar in case u want to lay down.
