I have been staying at the Epic Sana for 5 nights on a yoga retreat. It is a really beautiful hotel, surrounded by lush forest and 5 mins walk from a truly breathtaking beach. The yoga course has been wonderful - Juan is inspiring. The spa and food are also great. And to top it all off I saw dolphins...

We really enjoyed this hotel. Not our usual type of accommodation as we usually prefer Boutique or small luxury hotels but it surprised us on many levels. The building is only two stories high which helps it to blend in, somewhat hiding the fact it has so many rooms. Bedrooms were very spacious and bathroom was modern and nicely "quirky"....

And among the many reasons, the first one is their staff. Something unexpected happened so we had to make a last minute (really) reservation at this hotel. Given it was Dec 30 it could have gone messy but their staff went the extra mile to make things work out. Added to that, other features such as the hotel being so...

We've stayed here for one week and we had a pool view room. Clean rooms, very nice staff, confortable bed, the food was really good mostly based on fresh fish. We loved the attention to details. I totally recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for three days for a business review. Was an excellent choice. The hotel is spread across a very large tract of land with multiple swimming pools, terraces and eating areas. The interior is of subdued elegance and the ever smiling staff are always around for help. Would have loved to stay longer.

Visited the hotel for a conference and had a nice time. The hotel is new, great big rooms with all the amenities. Service was of high standard and staff polite and eager to service you. Nice pool area and lovely gardens, short walk to the beach. Conference facilities are excellent and convenient. Food was good, breakfast excellent. Strongly recommend It.

This hotel is such a special place in a gorgeous area. The design is amazing as is the service, the rooms, the food and the location. It is a hard to think of something that could be improved at this fabulous place. The only negative is that there is only one lame tennis court. There - a suggestion to add...

We have stayed at some of the best hotels in Europe and the Epic Sana Algave is defiantly one of the best. Looking at other peoples comments who disagree seem to have unrealistically high expectations for a hotel unless your paying thousands of pounds a day. It is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location that is out of the...

I stayed here for a yoga retreat and Joao the instructor is just great! Would definitely come for that again. But the hotel is far away from being a 5 stars hotel. Service at the restaurants just average, requests for specific had to be reminded more than once. Complaints were considered but no real solution offered.

“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.”
