Alan Rogers Review

Zmar is an exciting project which was set up in 2009. The site is located near Zambujeira do Mar, on the Alentejo coast. It is a highly ambitious initiative developed along very strict environmental lines. Renewable resources such as locally harvested timber and recycled plastic are used wherever possible and the main complex of buildings is clean cut and impressive. A terrace overlooks an open-air pool that seems to go on forever. The 132 pitches are 90 sq.m. and some, mainly for tents or smaller caravans and motorcaravans, benefit from artificial shade. All have 16A electricity. Caravans and wood-clad mobile homes are also available to rent.

In addition to the outdoor pool, the complex features an indoor pool area with a wave machine and a wellness centre. The very large and innovative play park for children has climbing nets, labyrinths and caves. There is also a children’s farm and a large play house. For adults, many sporting amenities are available around the resort’s 81 hectare park. Although several hundred olive trees were planted all over the site, many of these have sadly not survived and a new programme of planting is planned; for the moment, the environment looks a little stark.
