I have been coming to Zenzi for the past four years. Love the live music! My biggest issue was the service until we found Rachel! This young lady is amazing. She sets the level of service at a very high bar. She has an contagious smile and makes sure you have enjoyed your experience at Zenzie. This proves that can... More

Always our first stop when we arrive in playa. All of the staff have become family. The food is top notch with many choices. Music every day and night. Even salsa lessons. It's a friendly energetic vibe.

This is a great beach bar and restaurant. We stayed nearby and visited Zenzi almost daily. We were never disappointed. Rachel served us our first dinner here and she was amazing! She is always smiling and full of great humor.She remembered what we liked to drink, and was fast, efficient and professional. Rachel is a real asset to the Zenzi... More

Nice place to chill by the beach with some food & drinks. Service is a bit slow but there were a lot of people so that shouldn't really be held against them. There's a small dance floor and live music is a definite plus.

We were lucky because we got a buffet promotion for a really nice price. The buffet was until 6pm, that allows you to eat, drink and relax. The place is nice, not that big, first we had to seat in a regular table then after a while (not that much) changed to a bed in the sand and stay there... More

Came here with a group of 9.. half local friends half us on vacation. We got a large table closest to the water and just had drinks. Definitely a cool experience, would like to come back during the day next time.

My girlfriend's favourite place to go for dancing in playa. I have to say I agree. The drinks are priced well, the snacks are good. The staff is fun and helpful. The bathrooms clean and the live bands are worth sticking around for. If you want a fun night of looking like a fool dancing on the beach I cant... More

Four of us came here on Saturday evening for dinner. The waves lapping on the beach, full moon (almost) in the sky and live entertainment that was great for dancing to but not too loud to talk over. The flavours are all very fresh and we were all impressed with our meals. Even the fish and chips! The sesame crusted... More
