I visited this beach club for dinner at the end of November. The food was ok. Prices were reasonable when you take the extras into consideration: live music and fine breeze. Overall good experience.

First of all Zenzi has a different business model when compared to other places here in Playa Del Carmen, in fact you can have your beach-chair and umbrella for free if you buy food and beverages from them. That's not the way it usually works...More

Thank you fro your review. Yes, corrext, we dont charge for the use of beds / showers etc. All we ask is that you consume 'something' - no minimum either. As far as the small amount of beach beds, yes, unfortunately we depend on nature......More

Overall a pleasant experience with very good food, but the drinks were a little weak on alcohol. It was awesome to sit on the beach and relax while having a good meal.
