Just spent 8 days at Zmar and can't say enough about the value, the friendly and helpful staff, the fabulous food and the beauty of the natural surroundings and the amenities. There is walking involved as the spa/resort covers 81 hectares but I came to love walking the gravel roads, the sounds of the birds, the donkeys, the whole chorus... More

A great choice for a family with kids, the fun of the little ones is a sure. We loved to stay in the place, all the surround was good for us, great playground and a lot of space for the "ZKids" to have fun, great outdoor pool and also a nice indoor pool (with waves each hour). As it is... More

I was there for 3 nights and I loved it! It's a very calm place, perfect to take a break of a stressful life and relax. Very nice and friendly staff. Didn't like that much the pool bar, drinks and food doesn't worth the price.

Great choice of bungalows, good leisure equipments, helpful staff (except with the plague of "reserved" poolside chairs), agreeable meals, and a unique choice for camping in Portugal. The "eco" attitude is mainly a pose, albeit a nice one. It's true there's nothing near to do or see. But your kids will love it for sure.

I recently stayed at Zmar and was incredibly frustrated by their system of payment. First I pay for my room at reception, then for anything extra I have to first load some card at the info center (another location). I wanted to use my credit card at the restaurant but I was told I couldn't. If the restaurant has a... More

went for the pool which is great. However after that can't think of anything good. Probably not the kind of place for us, but unless you're a family with a load of kids I would question whether it's for you. Friendly staff did nothing to resolve the complaints we made, (cynic in me wonders is it just that they get... More

I liked staying there, even if only for a night. The area is nice, good for a few walks, with options to entertain kids. There's a nice pool of waves, and a spa resort. Of course I was only looking for a night in a ecobungalow, in a nice place. Honestly, it is too expensive for what it offers... I'd... More

We have stayed at ZMar for 6 days, specifically in a two-bedroom Zchalet, which was well-maintained, very clean and with all the amenities necessary. Zmar is actually a very clever concept, mixing activities for all the family with an ecological concert, which is shown in the care with disposables management and in all the construction. There is entertainment for all,... More

I imagine this to be the equivalent of the uk s centre parcs, it just does not hit that spot, accommodation worn, extremely basic and grubby. Self catering but two rings to cook on.
