I just want to tell you everything was perfect. The Hotel clean and spacious near the sea, the Spa excellent, the people nice and polite, the food amazing. It was a really relaxing experience for me and my children. Everything great, I do not have enough words to tell how beautiful it was.
Suzana, Croatia - 09 January 2024
We really enjoyed it!!! The preparation was very nice, your fast communication really made us to chose SIS to organise our holiday. EPIC Sana was wonderfully luxurious, clean and what a lovely people everywhere! The fact that the staff paid so much attention paid to us and to our bodies during the treatments made the whole experience complete. The only tip is that in our case we were the only ones in the hotel who followed the program at that moment and therefore we were easily ¨forgotten¨. We made sure that we could have lunch in the cozy bar instead of the large empty restaurant, but that was all possible and not a problem at all. Perhaps there could be a a bit more choice of different tastes, because we did not like the porridge, whole wheat pancakes and green bean soup, for example. The nicest and most beautiful moment of last week was the SPA where we had the best treatments. We will definitely recommend you!

We love this

  • The personal attention and guidance the personal trainers give you during the program is exceptional! They even join you for dinner if you wish and are there to support you all the way through your program
  • The location is spectacular, near the cliffs overlooking the beach & ocean, surrounded by pine forest, it gives you a real sense of peace and tranquility
  • You can access the wooden stairs that wind their way down to the award-winning Falesia beach direct from the hotel grounds.
  • The rooms are spacious and beautifully designed in natural colours and with a large balcony

This not so much...

  • This is not a hotel exclusively dedicated to wellness. There are also ´normal´ holiday guests. If you follow a weight loss or detox program your diet is served in the normal restaurant where you´ll have to walk past a large buffet every evening so some self discipline is required.
  • This is not an adult only hotel and particularly in the school holidays you will find families with children. However there is an adult-only pool and if you do wish to take your children there is a kids club so you can enjoy some treatments while your children are being looked after.
  • The Algarve is very touristy. So, whilst you have perfect peace in the hotel, if you venture out expect to see a fair bit of hustle and bustle.

Our tips

  • Traditional food market in Olhão: Olhão Food Market is located along the water front, which is a 'must visit' for the huge variety of fresh fish and sea food straight from the port and the vast array of locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables. Olhão is well known for it's fish market. Also take this opportunity to have lunch in one of the numerous local cafes along the roadside nearby - you won't be disappointed!
  • Take a boat trip to Ria Formosa: Ria Formosa has been elected one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal. The Ria Formosa is mainly a coastal lagoon separated from the sea by five barrier islands and two peninsulas with unique landscapes and breathtaking views. In this protected area you will find environments such as barrier islands, marshes, sand banks, dams, dunes, freshwater ponds, water courses, farmland and forests and of course a great diversity of flora and fauna. At Ria Formosa you can also find ecotourism activities and boat trips. This is a beautiful area to enjoy incredible moments during your holiday.
