    Visited June 2017

    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.

    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!

    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!

  • Louise

    Visited September 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.

    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.

  • Lorena

    Visited June 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.

  • Joanne F

    Visited April 2015

    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.

    Visited December 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.....

  • A H London, Trip Advisor Review

    Visited November 2014

    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. 

EPIC SANA Algarve Hotel - An epic experience.

Rugged cliffs and golden beaches illustrate the charming Algarve region of Southern Portugal in which Epic Sana welcomes wellness and sports enthusiasts. Indulge in outdoor activities, fitness classes and spa treatments to wind down and revitalise.
