We really felt spoiled with this culinary-themed vacation! From the culinary standpoint, this was a great experience. We elected for "wine" tasting which turned out to be a private tasting of 4 ports paired with imaginative appetizers led by Al Quimia's sommelier. The sommelier was able to get us a bottle of our favorite port to take home. Our second...

I took part in the mindfulness retreat at the hotel after going through a stressful time in my life. The hotel was the perfect place to unwind and relax. The staff were amazingly friendly and the spa facilities were excellent. The treatments I had were of a very high quality. I think I can say that this is one of...

This was our 4th visit to Epic SANA and I had some reservations about whether the magic might have worn off. I needn't have worried! Without exception, every single member of staff seems to take great pride in what they do. Whether at the bars, pool or buffet restaurant, or the outstanding Al Quimia, we are always greeted with courtesy,...

This is a beautiful place, but I have never stayed somewhere with such unfriendly, stiff, offhand, rude staff - and this is supposed to be a 5* Hotel! In the buffet restaurant there was one male member of staff who was cold and rude. One time he started to reset the table for the next customers WHILE WE WERE STILL...

I found it by mistake actually because a boutique hotel had to cancel on me. I am really glad they did. What impressed me the most at Epic Sana is the perfect integration with nature. Also, the fact that they took care of the most insignificant details that many other hotels would have missed. After all that you go to...

First time travelling with our 1 year old and we felt so comfortable and at ease in this hotel. We had a room in a separate building from the main hotel and we had our own dining room and pool. The majority of people in this end were young famlies so it was great as this made us feel at...

Spent 2 nights at the Epic Sana and had a fabulous stay. It was quiet time of year, but staff were very friendly and accommodating. Upgraded to sea view room and we weren't disappointed. My partner enjoyed the Yoga - whilst I ran along the headland to Vilamoura. Very clean and fresh - will definitely return.

“All the rooms are very well appointed. But there are ones a fair bit away from the main reception which involves a lot of walking.”
