We stayed for 3 nights at Zmar and we loved our experience. Everything from check in to check out was great. Their daily activities schedule allow you to just chill and not need to plan anything for your kids to do. We have a 4 year old son and we absolutely loved everything - breakfast, Kids Club, playground, planned activities to interact with the animals at the farm, pool area and wave indoor pool too. They also have bikes available for rental. Their cabin is very comfortable, we had a kitchen for us where we were able to cook our meals. Everything very clean and spacious. It is also a great place to learn and teach the kids about nature and ways to be more self sustainable. Would recommend for any families, it is great for the kids to play freely and for the parents to relax.
I gave this place 4 stars, the missing star goes to the ant problem inside the bedroom!!!!!! First moment entering the villa saw the corner of the main bedroom does has a lot ants crawling in line. We slept in the other room, the other day we found out the ants even climbing up to that bed! Can you imagine that if we slept there overnight? This is the only bad memory with zmar. Other things are awesome, staff are nice, big pool, even has waves maker for the indoor pool that's more than just perfect for kids to spend the whole day. They loved this place! But consider the price we pay more or less 300 euros per night for this 4 star resort, the room are just don't qualified at all, definitely more maintenance!
Zmar has its flaws, but overall it's a very nice experience. Considering the price you pay, you do get a lot for your money. The housing works, even though they could inform you beforehand that you would need to bring some extra stuff for the kitchen, such as a frying pan and other useful utensils, as well as your own towels when using the swimming pool. But these are details. Going with your kids is fantastic. There are daily events for them (and us grown-ups), and they are free. Also, on kids, if your child is 3+ you can leave him/her in the kidz daycare and take some time for yourself in the spa or swimming pool. All in all, this is a place to recommend.
Very disappointing experience. Poor quality of everything, like an old youth hostel, but charging 178€ per night. The bathroom is in very bed condition. Unacceptable. Mattress is super uncomfortable. Just see the pictures and decide yourself.
Payed 60 euros for 2 meals and a dip on a cold, yet supposed to be warm pool. There was no play ground for children as mentioned. Everything was closed. Ended up taking my son the the heated pool, yet after 15 minutes in it was purple and shivering to the point we had to warm him up with towelsthe sun and a hair dryer and leave. Overpriced for one day visitors for sure. Beautiful, organised, clean... But I just felt like I was robbed.
