Honeymoon, you get the idea. This was the perfect place to stay for the first half of our honeymoon and the weather was absolutely perfect for it. We stayed here (very quiet during our October visit) and took taxis into the nearby towns of Olhas d'Agua and Central Albufeira for activities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Gorgeous property with ok service"
This hotel was extremely hard to find and there wasn't much around it. My boyfriend and I went for a romantic getaway and felt the service could've been better. There were some sort of conferences going on when we were there and half of the bars were closed or just catering to the people at the conference. At times or was a little annoying. The property […] was gorgeous though and it would've been great if so much of the hotel wasn't reserved for the larger groups. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely resort, but total rip off!"
The resort itself was very lovely, but even after choosing the half board option we left with a hefty bill as drinks, lunch, etc were totally over priced considering that this is Portugal and wine and groceries are super cheap! You're already paying 5 star prices when you book the hotel, so I found it disappointing that the resort is also gouging it's […] guests on food and drink. Also it was annoying that the room didn't even have wine glasses or a wine opener and the opener they brought broke in the cork and we had to request another one. Seemed ridiculous that there were no wine glasses in the room, but there were champagne flutes. Likely a ploy to get you to drink the overpriced champagne in the mini bar. Also missing in our room was an ice bucket and an iron/ironing board. These were all minor annoyances. All in all we did have a relaxing weekend at a lovely resort, but we will not be returning. For context, we are Canadians who are living in Lisbon. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Meet the expectation"
Nice hotel. We wish we could have stayed a bit longer. The only downside is not much restaurant choices within the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Highly recommend will return. Modern, new and excellent positionGenuine Expedia guest review
Beautiful hotel, fantastic service. We had an ocean view room with a balcony. Very comfortable beds, quality bedlinen... the online pictures do not do it justice. Access to the beach directly from the Hotel. Would certainly recommend and definitely stay here again without hesitation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing hotel, not much nearby , but good to relax"
This hotel is really really nice. The reception area makes an imposing first impression, and our room and the public areas of the hotel were equally impressive. We had a studio apartment and it was huge! It had a microwave/grill, dishwasher, fridge and nespresso machine (coffee is 1euro per sachet) The bed was a super king if not bigger. There were […] two tv's and a fair size balcony area. The shower was also enormous but just a glass box in the bedroom - not so good if you are with children. The main downside to this place is that it is just within a huge sprawl of hotel complexes, with very little else around. There is a small supermarket and about four restaurants (we tried three, all of which were nice) just over the road. It's about 45 mins from Faro and 30 mins from Albufeira. The hotel beach is down about a million steps, but is very nice, although the sea was too rough for our three year old to play in safely. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Luxurious and quiet"
Its very hard to find any faults with Epic Sana. Food was good - but expect around 50 Euros including drinks each for dinner if not included with deal.Area around has some shop and local restaurants but generally very quiet area. Hotel itself is quiet and is in lovely grounds with ample pools and chairs and overall very spacious and elegant without […] being too stuffy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Style over substance"
Arrived for a 10 night stay August 22nd. We hadn't been able to book ocean view due to technical issues - I had emailed the hotel several days ahead asking for a possible upgrade or at the very least a decent view ie NOT over the car park. The hotel replied with a standard email and no offer other than stating we had booked a resort view. Not helpful […] at all. I replied enquiring about views and guess what ..no further reply.. so imagine our dismay when the very room (328) we were shown was over the front entrance including car park..they declined an upgrade but offered an ocean view (really more of a glimpse in between landscaped gardens) at the princely sum of 70 Euros per night!! Needless to say we declined. We compromised with a room (334) a few doors away from the car park with a dismal view over some 'brown' earthy area with less green that the entire hotel and about half an hour of sunshine at 6pm. Not exactly the best welcome. They said they'd move us if a better view came up but that's the last we ever heard about it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is only 1 year old. The facilities are superb. The staff is great. We are a family with two little children and the staff did everything possible to make everyone happy. The hotel is a short walk away to a beautiful sandy beach. Do bear in mind that it is not a private beach and when we were there (August) it was very busy. Overall highly […] recommended!!

"Very good hotel, right next to the beach"
The Epic Sana is beautiful, with great pools and a superb location on top of the cliff, right next to the beach. Service is very good, rooms are stunning. It's a little out of the way, so you need a car or a taxi to move around. Food at the main restaurant is not great, but there are some cosy places just outside the hotel grounds (better quality and […] less than half the price) or you can go to plenty of fancy restaurants all around the area.

"Impossible to get better!"
Not much to say, the only words that come to my mind is brilliant, perfect and epic... Only suggestion I have in mind is the food on the open deck bar, needs to be improved, however this hotel clearly sets a new standar for me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Perfect hotel, excellent service, immaculate rooms, stunning grounds and loads space around the pools for relaxation. Cant fault this hotel.....apart from the buffet dinner. The restaurant is great for breakfast but has zero atmosphere in the evening. It really doesn't warrant €98 for two including drinks. Big shame. Other than that, book yourselves […] a real escape in a stunning hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Spent 3 days at the Epic Sana ealry May with my best friend on a mini-break. Hotel is fabulous, very modern & in a lovely beachside location. A bit out of the way from Olhos D'Agua where we socialise but we were happy to just stay aroudn the hotel in the day & then take a taxi down to the centre. We had a fabulous time & wouldn't hesitate to return. […] Loved it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful hotel shame about service"
The hotel is beautifully designed with excellent pool and beach facilities. Unfortunately more thought has gone into the look of the hotel rather than the service.

Neues modern gestyltes Hotel mit kühler puristischer Architektur, gepflegte und weitläufige Anlage auf grosszügigem Areal direkt am Strand, sehr gut ausgestattete Deluxe-Appartments, freundliches Personal.

"Geweldig hotel voor de verwende gast!"
Geweldig hotel, voldeed geheel, of meer zelfs! aan onze verwachtingen. Jong en zeer bekwaam en behulpzaam personeel. Zowel achter de receptie ,als in de bediening tijdens het ontbijt, als de jongens van de valet parking etc. Niets is hun teveel en service stahoon be aan hun lijst. Het hotel is clean, trendy, heerlijke kamers met super badkamer en eigen […] nespresso machine mèt cups(scoort bij mij;-) maar ook de inrichting van alle openbare ruimtes is een lust voor het oog. Geen gezeur ook met extra betalen voor wifi/gym/tennis, maar alles all-in en het werkt ook allemaal. Heerlijke ligbedden/handdoeken bij het zwembad. Elke middag komen ze langs met fruitspiesje bij t zwembad, enfin, ik kan nog wel even doorgaan (en t ontbijtbuffet!!!) maar wil je even luieren en je in luxe wanen, een aanrader!!! Aan de overkant van het hotel zijn verschillende leuke restaurants en een supermarkt. Wij hebben een heerlijke week gehad:-) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"TIs hotel is a must!!!!"
03/25/15 CarlisleGoldie carlisle
I stayed with my husband for one week in the height of summer. It exceeded expectations from the breakfast, the service to the rooms. A very relaxing stay, if feeling like a walk you can walk along the beach or the cliffs to the resort of Vilamoura it takes about 45mins but there are a few more restaurants to choose from
"The hotel you must visit!!"
03/22/15 SBSMCS London, United Kingdom
This hotel is absolutely a must for couples who wish to take a break from busy lifestyles. The service is fantastic, the staff are always available and happily ready to help. The cleanliness is what you would expect in a 5 star hotel. The hotel is brand new and very well designed with state of the art modern decor!! The hotel in reality is far nicer than what you see in the pictures!! The grounds are most breathtaking and relaxing and extraordinarily well kept!! Spa was always nice and quiet so it provided the optimal spa for couples experience!! Another plus is that the beach is right next to the hotel with private access! Overall we had an amazing experience and would definitely visit again and would highly recommend to all. Thanks again Epic Sana!!!
"Beautifull, peacefull, relaxing"
03/21/15 arsenal7533 Paris
I stayed at the Epic Sana for one week in Suite 516. Form the moment you step in the spotless lobby you feel you are in the right place to relax. This relatively new hotel is very modern, the staff is freindly and efficient. From the lobby to the restaurants, from the suite to the SPA everything is perfect. I especially recommend suite 516 which is a corner suite with a view over the pinetrees and the oecan. The suite is spacious, contemporary decorated, with an amazing bathroom. The terrasse offers both privacy and a beautifull view. The hotel is 5 min away from a beautifull beach. The Bleubar is beautifull and the music played is just great. I had a wonderfull time there and I highly recommend it to those who are after contemporary hotel, with a zen / fashion edge.
"Amazing in every way"
03/16/15 228dan Cheshire, United Kingdom
I cannot fault the hotel, not only met my expectations but surpassed them constantly. Best breakfasts I have had anywhere in the world and friendly staff who seem to enjoy their job. Beach access is hilarious if you don't like steps but to mark the hotel down because of the local landscape would be stupid, it's an amazing hotel, amazing staff and I will be returning.
03/06/15 petejamesyes Greater London, United Kingdom
This is a very nice and large resort with beautiful landscape. The beach is very close by with a walk way for easy access. The staff were great and accommodating. The breakfast was 2nd to none and the grounds and facilities 1st class. There are four pools with very comfortable sun loungers, the grounds are immaculately kept, stunning landscaping. The location is a little out the way with just a couple of restaurants and a mini supermarket just outside the hotel. yellowfish taxi was booked for our private transfer. Wow...what a service and with free wifi onboard. A++++
"Cool New Hotel with interesting bathrooms"
03/04/15 Douglas R Denver
We stayed in the cabana or bungalow area which is an upgraded room and is more like an apartment. It was quite large although it did not face the beach but was quiet and had a nice pool unto itself and it is very near the lobby and the main part of the hotel. Kinda a hotel within a hotel. They had a nice kitchen layout and even free cereal and milk and fruit left for us for the morning, although this may be due to it being New Years Eve and kitchens may be closed in the morning.... not sure if this is a regular thing. The bathroom was interesting in that it is ALL glass and there can be no privacy at all if that is what you desire. You can lower a screen or have the shower in full view, (which could be fun,) but there is a lot of glass so you may want to coordinate who is in the front of the apt at any given time if you don't want to share all. The hotel is very new and google maps doesn't even know its there. We initially had some trouble finding it but there are lot of signs on the road pointing towards it so if you see them, it is easy to find by car. TIP: If you stay in the main building, the higher floors will offer the best views as the lower floors may give you more pool than ocean based on the layout of the hotel. Pools were not heated so too cold to use in January, but the spa had a heated pool and other facilities. The overall feel of the hotel was nice and the breakfast buffet and restaurants are plentiful with a beach a very short walk nearby. This is a good hotel to get away from it all and I would stay here again.

I love this hotel. I actually stayed here shortly after the soft opening in June 2013. We, as a family stayed in the apartments as we traveled with my 7 month old baby, The apartments were extremely clean, big, well laid out and fully stocked with all our required kitchen utensils. We certainly enjoyed the the pools, especially as there is a direct access pool within the grounds of the apartment. At the time there was only 1 restaurant open. A little bit disappointed with the dinner but extremely happy with the fresh breakfasts. However, there is a great pizza restaurant a short walk from the resort, within a small parade of shopping outlets. Our biggest wow factor was the mod-cons. Ultra modern facilities, and a very classy feel to the resort. Would I recommend the hotel? Yes definitely. Infact a few friends have visited since. Would I return? Absolutely.
"Zen hotel with Splended service. "
02/15/15 Mieke D
A came here as a single to reload. And i found What i was searching for. When I entered Someone was carring, showing me around. They have everything in the hotel, different swimmingpools, sauna, whirlpool, ect.... You can go to THE fitness, there is an instructor and you can take groupslessons. THE rooms are very clean and there is enough place. You can go to THE beach it is in THE Backyard of THE hotel or you can walk in THE mountains. Everyone is very Nice and welltrained in service. I only would recommend more Yoga.. But It is THE place to reboot. So singels don't hesitate.

Great location with magnificent view on top of the cliffs. We had the most wonderful experience from start to finish. The staff was very helpful and polite. The hotel is modern and looks very new, the rooms are very spacious and well equipped. Spa, gym and pools are perfect for families and couples. There's also a cafe a couple of shops pizzeria and Chinese opposite the hotel. Albufeira is 15min away in taxi about 8€. A private transfer with free wifi onboard and very friendly and professional drivers cost 60€ return. Highly recommended company and hotel.

Spread across 8 hectares, this hotel is one of the largest and most beautiful I stayed in. For business, and although during low season, it was a great culinary, relaxing (when time permitted) and generally perfect stay. The staff are helpful, the spa is great and the food was probably the best hotel food I've ever eaten. Well thought out design meant all details were thought of, and great working wireless everywhere. Beautiful place, worth a second visit for a holiday next time to enjoy the beautiful beach and one of the many outdoor pools!
