The grounds of the hotel are beautiful with a direct access to the incredible praia de falesia, it’s located outside of Albufeira but we used Uber to get to restaurants in the evening and we ate twice in restaurants nearby the hotel. We had a really pleasant stay unfortunately the last 2 days were a little spoilt as there was a big group (20 people) staying and they took over one of the pools, playing music, drinking, smoking and being loud not exactly the vibe of the place which usually is more peaceful & relaxing. The view from our room of the gardens and the ocean in the background was beautiful.

The stay in itself was great! But there was a particular staff member who was rude and I did let her colleague know during checkout. Regardless of this aspect, the stay was very good. Everything else was perfect, aside from this one instance.

Overall Epic Sana Algarve is a very beautiful resort, with great amenities, and superbly polite, friendly, and welcoming staff. The food was very good (although repetitive). Staff service was excellent, very friendly, professional, and efficient, making stay very comfortable and enjoyable. Resort has three full size pools and one for the little ones, a great direct, few minutes, path to the beach, a very welcoming bar ( with very good musicians playing every night). Their drinks were excellent in quality. …...but ......…. Unfortunately my stay was marred by a very glaring problem with the dining buffet options included with the reservations which ultimately depended on building one was given, which in turn depended on number of people in room. My party ended up renting 5 rooms, with 4 being offered breakfast and dinner, but one (Suite for wife, 12 year old daughter and myself) being offered breakfast and lunch, but no dinner (not an honest offer - who will stuff themselves for breakfast and then again 2-3 hours later for lunch ?). Offered to replace lunch with dinner and pay difference in cost, but no luck. Ultimately took three different appeals to finally get someone to see the absurdity of their offer (little too late - had only one night left by then). At minimum Hotel should have presented all options at time of reservation to permit a better decision on cost per value. I would recommend a 3 night stay at most, arriving early on 1st day, and leaving late on last.
