Went as a visit. Just a good day by the pool. Also used the gymn. It has interesting activities but would have to pay extra (because of being only a visit). Anyway a kind of expensive nice day but worth it for the space, conditions, view, etc.

One of the best camping site I've ever been to (I used a Caravan). Amazing pools (including indoor wave pool), great spa venue and service, and the best toilets/bathhouses. Lots of entertainment for children and parents. All staff very kind. A must go in the beautiful Alentejo Coast, 200 km south from Lisbon.

If you want peace and tranquility this is the place. Good food, great staff, beautiful walks along the wild flower paths, and gorgeous bird life all contributed to one of the most tranquil vacations. The housing is basic but very clean. A great family destination.

Been at Zmar with my wife and daughter. All experience was fantastic. The staff was friendly, bungalow was very nice and clean, outside places and swimming pools are amazing. You've always some thing to do around. Restaurant food was amazing. In my opinion the breakfast schedule has to be improved because sometimes we've to wait sometime.

We stated here for the weekend with our kids. The surroundings are very nice. The wooden chalets were better than expected. The Waves pool was also interesting. The bad thing IS that everything you want to do you have to pay. More than that you can't pay with money what is very annoying. Interesting experience to go once.
