The vacation in the EPIC SANA Algarve Hotel was very relaxing. The rooms are clean and the food was delicious. Futhremore there was a big garden and the beach is near to the hotel. There are many pools, so you can swim without awful noises. This is excellent for relexation, because the resort is unbelievably big. They also have a fitness room with an indoor pool. It won`t get boring for adults, teenagers and children. The enviroment is outstanding and fascinating. You can go for a walk at the ocean. All in all the hotel and his enviroment is a nice place for families and couples. You can book tours, drive to cities and you can go swimming in the ocean.

We stayed here on a Jet2 package holiday on a bed and breakfast basis. The hotel’s location is close to the beach and there are 151 steps down a gully between the cliffs to lovely sands. There are several local restaurants close by and a small supermarket. Albufeira, Vilamoura and Loule are each about a 20/25 minute Uber ride; a hire car would be advantageous to see more of the area. Our holiday was curtailed by a day as we were expatriated early to the UK due to the Covid 19 issue. As this started to take hold the hotel (rightly) cut back on its facilities by first closing the spa and then its upmarket restaurant. The pools were also ultimately closed, although it was still possible to sit in loungers in the pool area. Throughout the process the hotel provided clear communication to keep guests informed. Under the circumstances the staff in the dining room for breakfast and also in the Blumm Bar were absolutely terrific. They always had a smile on their face and remained friendly and attentive. The buffet breakfasts were always good with a wide choice of foods. The bar food was tasty and the evening dining offered a wide option; many of the foods were rather rich, although clearly everyone has their own taste. The hotel’s location is ideal for a restful vacation away.

a beautiful hotel, lots of space for that special quiet time, a great place to recharge . private access to the beach but no wheelchair access, yoga or pilates most mornings, not to early either, rooms are beautiful and very clean, fridge contents are very expensive, leave them alone, lovely little supermarket less than 5 minutes away from hotel. our only disappointment was the hot food was not very hot, and did not stay hot in the heated dishes, 1 tea light candle under a large serving dish full of veg was not going to do the job, but otherwise a lovely relaxing place to be
