We visited Zama twice during our trip -- once with just Randy, Carl and me, and another day with our entire crew. I don't know if it's changed since we were there, but Zama was a wonderful place to spend the day. Both times, we arrived around 10 or so in the morning. At that time of the day, there were very few people and it was like having our own private beach club. Notice how calm the water is in the pool behind Carl:

and hanging out with Mommy:
The lady in the lounge chair near us was from NJ, I believe, and very nice. Her husband is a boat captain who takes some wealthy guy to various Caribbean spots to fish...while she gets to come along and enjoy land-locked activities - like tanning at Zama. What a life!
The grounds and beach at Zama are very clean and just lovely. Maria enjoys the beach, with that incredible, soft, white Isla sand...
Lots of motor yachts and sailboats pass by...

This handsome fellow stepped out of the bushes near the pool to say hello:
Carl was curious, but a bit unsure about his new-found friend.
Randy and Carl tried out one of the free kayaks - fun! As they head back in to shore...
Maria and I give the girls their bottles down on the beach level:
It is oh, so relaxing here at our private Zama beach club! What's that? Why, yes, I would love another pineapple juice! Meanwhile, little Olivia takes full advantage of the peace, quiet, and her hammock:
After a while, we decide to order lunch. I highly recommend snagging one of the tables up "top" by the jacuzzis. Great view overlooking the entire place, and the trellis provides just the right amount of shade. All the food was good, but I think Carl's was the best. He ordered the fish "sticks" from the kid's menu, and when they arrived, they were actually very fresh fish fillets, deep fried in light, crispy batter. Yum!
Hey ... are those day-trippers in the background? Didn't anyone tell them Zama is a PRIVATE beach club?!? I suppose we can let them share our slice of paradise for a little while.
On both of our trips to Zama, we staked out our claim next to the jacuzzis early in the day, so at least our chairs were safe! ;) And, one of the day-trippers was kind enough to snap a (partial) family photo for us. (I think this was on the day when it was just the three of us there.)
We are all feeling relaxed and happy. A quick trip on our golf cart, and we are back in town for dinner and bed. Night-night! Tomorrow? Perhaps a golf cart tour, the beach, or maybe both...
