3rd Visit - Says It All
Good choice of : Accommodation Restaurants (3) Bars (2) Pools (4) Easy access to Falesia Beach. All staff smart and friendly, providing good service. Minor comment : Shaving/ washing face difficult in wash hand basins - tap overhangs half of the basin and while the waste outlet is covered there is no way to retain water in the sink.

Amazing hotel
We are just back from an 8 day stay at the Epic Sana in the Algarve and we had a wonderful time. I have stayed in various different places but Acoteias is my favourite. At the Epic Sana we had a one bedroom suite as we were travelling with our two year old and this gave us plenty of space. The room was cleaned daily to a good standard and free bottled water provided. We also were able to use the lunch buffet restaurant for free due to our room type which was a welcome addition. The staff at breakfast and lunch were very friendly and the food choice was exceptional. Lots of standard dishes along with Portuguese specialities like chicken pies, octopus, custard tarts and almond cake. I enjoyed the yoga - so relaxing! Pools were great too. Falesia beach is simply one of the most amazing beaches in the world and we loved the easy access. Can’t wait to return

Exceptional hotel with fabulous customer service
Outstanding! Beautiful hotel with the most amazing staff. All exceptionally friendly, the service was fabulous and we wanted for nothing. A few exceptional service ambassadors: Hannah in the spa, Danilo, Wiler & Adriano from the restaurants and bars. These guys are a credit to their employers and certainly went beyond what was expected to make our stay very memorable. The rooms very spotless, facilities well maintained and the attention to detail was second to none. Will definitely return. Thank you for a brilliant stay.

8/10 Very Good

The stay in itself was great! But there was a particular staff member who was rude and I did let her colleague know during checkout. Regardless of this aspect, the stay was very good. Everything else was perfect, aside from this one instance.

8/10 Very Good

Overall Epic Sana Algarve is a very beautiful resort, with great amenities, and superbly polite, friendly, and welcoming staff. The food was very good (although repetitive). Staff service was excellent, very friendly, professional, and efficient, making stay very comfortable and enjoyable. Resort has three full size pools and one for the little ones, a great direct, few minutes, path to the beach, a very welcoming bar ( with very good musicians playing every night). Their drinks were excellent in quality. …...but ......…. Unfortunately my stay was marred by a very glaring problem with the dining buffet options included with the reservations which ultimately depended on building one was given, which in turn depended on number of people in room. My party ended up renting 5 rooms, with 4 being offered breakfast and dinner, but one (Suite for wife, 12 year old daughter and myself) being offered breakfast and lunch, but no dinner (not an honest offer - who will stuff themselves for breakfast and then again 2-3 hours later for lunch ?). Offered to replace lunch with dinner and pay difference in cost, but no luck. Ultimately took three different appeals to finally get someone to see the absurdity of their offer (little too late - had only one night left by then). At minimum Hotel should have presented all options at time of reservation to permit a better decision on cost per value. I would recommend a 3 night stay at most, arriving early on 1st day, and leaving late on last.
