EPIC SANA Algarve Hotel, Albufeira, Portugal
Beautiful beach, lovely hotel
We really enjoyed the Epic Sana. The grounds were pretty and the rooms nice and spacious. The beach was beautiful. Service was very good. I loved the food and wine pairings at Al Quimia, but I felt like the food from the buffet and bar area was only average.

Very Good8.0
A nice place to stay but pricy.
Stopped here for a night during a whirlwind trip of Portugal. The place was excellent and of wish I could have stayed longer. The food I tried was good and reasonably priced. This hotel is Very expensive for Portugal, but it’s in a nice location.

Very Good8.0
Beach access is amazing and resort is very nice. The only thing I would mention is that if you want to leave the resort to go to dinner offsite you have to take a taxi at least 20 minutes away to vilamoura or albufiera.
