Our stay at Epic Sana

Jérôme, father of Achille, 5 years old, from Brussels

 

 

During the last summer holidays, we headed for Portugal and stayed at Epic Sana hotel.

 

AN IDYLLIC SETTING

With its turquoise sea and ochre cliffs, the Algarve had always been a region we dreamt to visit. We were not disappointed as the hotel has direct access to the beach. To get there, you have to take a wooden staircase, which is very suitable for children, but not very practical for babies still in strollers.

As everywhere on the coast, private beaches do not exist. The hotel does not have its own beach chairs. Nevertheless, comfortable deckchairs with screens are available for rent at a price of 7€ per person per half day. This is a very affordable price compared to other destinations such as the French Riviera.

This part of the coast, unlike neighbouring places like Sagres, is less windy and the sea here is warmer. In addition, the beach is very kids-friendly, waves are low and the sea depth is gradual.

The hotel presents itself as a contemporary complex built in harmony with nature. The buildings are no more than two storeys high and give the impression of blending into the landscape.

“The beach is very kids-friendly, waves are low and the sea depth is gradual.”

The vegetation is omnipresent and lush. It is very pleasant to walk through the paths that border the hotel. We also appreciated the human size of this establishment. The distances are not too long between the different points of interest and there are not too many customers. It feels really good.

The decoration is modern, with lounge accents and touches of pep colour such as orange and apple green.

 

FOR KIDS

The rooms at Epic Sana are very large and therefore suitable for families. Some offer a view on the gardens; others overlook the pool or the sea. We stayed in the “residence” part, a place that families are particularly fond of. Our suite featured a nice kitchenette equipped with Smeg and a living room separated from the bedroom by a decorative partition. In this living room, there was a comfortable sofa bed in which our 5-year-old son slept.

The hotel has several swimming pools, the progressive depth of which is particularly suitable for children. There is even a paddling pool specially designed for babies.

Every evening, we used to have a swing under the “love tree”. A super cool tree on which you can hang your wishes or declarations of love. The place offers a nice sea view and it’s really fairylike.

“We used to have a swing under the “love tree”.”

We enrolled our son in the kids-club and he had a lot of fun there. He met children from 4 to 12 years old, mainly French, Portuguese, German and English. The place where the kids-club is located is really beautiful and protected from the sun thanks to the natural shade of the trees. Moreover, the kids-club was located close to our room, which was really convenient. The two girls who manage the children’s activities are friendly and come every morning to meet the children at breakfast. This allows the children to discover the day’s programme and makes shy children want to take the plunge. Well done!

There is a lot to do with your family in the Algarve region. The hotel is located close to the main attractions: zoo, water park, boat trips etc.

 

FOR US PARENTS

On arrival in our room we received a 15€ voucher to be used at the spa. We used it and had a relaxing time together, while Achille was having fun at the kids-club. We also played tennis a few times.

My wife liked the different group sports classes that were given every day, such as spinning and cardio training.

We also rested a lot. Epic Sana really is the perfect hotel to relax!

“Epic Sana really is the perfect hotel to relax!”

The hotel has 3 restaurants: a gourmet restaurant, an Italian restaurant and a buffet restaurant. Although we stay on half board, sometimes in the evening we paid for our meal à la carte at the gastronomic restaurant or in the Italian restaurant in order to vary the pleasures. This is perhaps the only small recommendation I would make to this hotel: vary the dishes served in the buffet restaurant and raise its overall quality level.

Regarding the rest, it was perfect. We had a wonderful stay and left invigorated!

 

A great adventure that I recommend!

Jérôme
