We stayed at the Zara boutique hotel in July 2013 we had read quite a few of the reviews on here with regards to smells but found no problems at all. We stayed in the royal villa with a nice size pool with a large bath and plenty of storage. We overlooked the stream and the beach. The hotel just... More

We were a little early to arrive so we waited in restaurant while our room was organized. The river is a little daunting at first slightly smelly but not enough to spoil you're time here. Our pool villa was great but no privacy when using pool. Main pool is good as is the bar there. Staff are amazing all very... More

We stayed at the Zara, going by the pictures and reviews online to celebrate our anniversary. We'd only been able to book the smallest room which didn't have a pool as it was the only one available for booking on booking.com with the exception of the largest apartment which is suitable for a larger party. We felt really let down... More

We were expecting luxurious place where to have great and relaxing vacation in a luxurious environment. It was definitely not the case.

We stayed in the Zara Beach Resort and were very happy with our choice - the staff is very polite and attentive, the villas are comfortable and the resort is, literally, in front of beautiful Lamai beach. The restaurant in front of the resort, on the beach, provided wonderful meals and drinks, all served with a smile. The prices were... More

This resort is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are fantastic, including the little beach huts. The private area on the beach is ideal, the staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Fantastic value, lovely restaurant, free WIFI, beautiful grounds, near the centre of Lamai. Couldn't fault the place
