Guest Reviews of Epic Sana

The customer service when booking the holiday with Health and Fitness Travel was excellent, as well was the service at Epic Sana! What a lovely hotel, the rooms are stunning with a good attention to detail on everything. The location next to the beach is stunning and the little commercial area just outside is very useful for any extra bits needed. Also great to discover authentic towns and villages of the Algarve area. I recommend this holiday to everyone looking to relax and exercise in great location.

-Susan, June 2017


This place really is a paradise…The holiday was all I could dream of. Everything was organised and wonderful! The Yoga Classes are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!


- Leila , March 2017



Thank you so much to everyone at Health and Fitness Travel and Epic Sana! I will definitely be back to you next year! The accommodation, facilities, cuisine and staff were fantastic. I probably would like to have more group classes but all aspects of the programme arranged by you was excellent!


- Elva - November 2016





I had a fantastic time! Hotel was amazing, great food, staff were really friendly, talkative and helpful. My BodyBreak programme was brilliant, the instructors pushed and challenged me, which was just what I needed. They were also so friendly and lovely to be around. I have nothing to suggest as an improvement at all! Return is on the cards.


- Louise - September 2016





It was a great short break. I had very strict requirements and you managed to accommodate them nicely. The weather was perfect and the facilities were excellent. Trainers and staff were very good - I particularly enjoyed the bootcamp and meditation sessions.


- Jill - July 2016





Our holiday was great and we really enjoyed the hotel, the classes and all treatments. You now have a satisfied traveller who will get back to you every year.


- Lorena - June 2016





I had a great time! Feel brilliant now and much improved after the 5 days. The resort was excellent and the classes and sessions were all superb so you can pass on my compliment to Andrè the PT and the excellent yoga and Pilates instructors. I feel really energised and fitter for the training provided.


The only negative aspect of the resort was the slight stinginess with drinking water in the rooms which was only replaced once, but other than that it was a great break and I really appreciate the service you provided and would easily recommend you to anyone looking for holiday like this.

We stayed here as a family of three with a 4 year old over half term. I was not sure what to expect from the Algarve or this hotel although I had high hopes from the reviews on here.

The hotel is quite simply stunning. The staff are polite, friendly and have excellent English. The décor and furnishings are very modern and spotlessly clean. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment in the residence section of the hotel which was where most of the families appear to be as it is close to the family pool and the kids club area. The room was huge with the biggest bed I have ever slept in. It was also incredibly comfortable. The bathroom was bigger than your average British living room with the luxurious oval bath. Everything was spotlessly clean. The room was more than big enough for all of us. I would say though if you have two kids of more than say 5 or 6 years old then may find the sofa bed a little too small for them both and you may want to book one of the garden suites.

The room had a kitchen area with everything you could need if self catering. We chose to stay half board - so on to the food.

The breakfast was extravagant and plentiful with at least a dozen types of bread and pastries every day. The cheese, fruit and meats were plentiful and the cooked breakfast was perfect. Our son loved the waffles and pancakes. The staff were efficient and knew our coffee preferences after a day or so.

I was a little sceptical of a 'buffet' evening meal as I had visions of lukewarm or overcooked food. I need not have worried. The food was amazing. Small individual 'fine dining' style starters and then at least 6 different types of meat or fish for the main course. The meat was all perfectly cooked and more was cooked to order if you required it. The deserts were excellent and there is an ice-cream bar for the kids. Kids are not pandered to with the meals however. There was a pasta dish every night but no other 'kids' food. This was fine with us but might be a problem if you have fussy eaters although there was always plain chicken or fish too.

We really enjoyed the food in the snack bar by the pool too, prices were reasonable for food and drink throughout the hotel.

In fact this lack of pandering to kids was evident throughout. The place is very family friendly but kids are not the focus which we thought was fabulous. It is a proper adult hotel where you can take your kids. The kids club and playground are tucked away and there are no slides or anything in the pools. There was no kids entertainment while we were there (it appears to finish at the end of September) which was not entirely clear from the website but again this did not bother us as out son was happy on the beach or in the pool.

The pools are freezing but the indoor pool is lovely, again a lovely adult looking spa pool but that kids are welcome in.

The hotel was very quiet when we were there, probably 10-15% occupancy and it was bliss. I had expected it to be busy as it was half term but we had the pool to ourselves at times. The weather was excellent too.

I had a fabulous massage in the spa too - well worth a visit.

The local area is lovely, not too touristy and there are fabulous beaches very close by including the one accessed directly from the hotel (via a lot of steps). There are a few bars and restaurants and a little supermarket just outside the hotel which were very quiet while we were there. Vilamoura a few miles down the road is well worth a visit.

I would not hesitate to go back to this hotel and will recommend to my friends it was a first class experience and exceeded our expectations.

- A H London, Trip Advisor Review - November 2014



This hotel opened just over a year ago and I have visited 4 times so far. Situated about 30 mins from the airport this ultra modern 5 star hotel in nestled on the cliffs between Villamoura and Albuferia in a secluded quiet location. If you are looking for the strip and tourist shops go to Benidorm. If your looking for tranquility, ultra clean and modern surroundings, great food ( we go half board and it's the best food I have ever eaten in a holiday hotel) and very efficient friendly staff, then you have found the right place. But, shhhhh it's our secret.....
