Incredible location right by the beach, generally helpful staff, great breakfast selection and a balcony with a view of the beach and ocean (We had an upgraded room). The only downsides were that live music every other day until 12 pm can get quite annoying and can be heard fairly well inside the rooms. Additionally the check in time of 3 PM is quite late. We arrived at 10 AM, and check in was delayed until 3:30 PM. Otherwise staff was very acommodating and many popular tourist trips could be booked in the lobby with pickup right by the hotel.

We have stayed at this hotel on 5 occasions, never had any cause to complain other than a couple who wanted to fight one another at 2am. We were moved in the middle of the night and reallocated the next morning all our belongings moved by staff,that was our first visit some five years ago. Our most recent visit was on a bb basis,sea view room,fantastic maid service daily, high floor recommended. Plenty on sun beds. Everywhere kept spotlessly clean. Staff attentive and polite. Breakfast. Plenty of variety all fresh and kept filled up. Yes if situated on the front music and people enjoying themselves. We will return

Warning if you want rest and relaxation this is definitely NOT the hotel for you Pros: staff friendly No fighting for sun beds at stupid o lock Cons : if you have a seaview room and go to bed before 1am you are in for a rough night music from hotel played outside at pool area till 12 midnight, then the guy opposite (painter carries on the racket till 1am or after , I am currently lying in my bed listening to constant noise even with earplugs in 😡 We needed this break and are absolutely exhausted we have 2 more days to go and we are desperate to get home we paid £2457 for this holiday we would have been as well to throw our money away Food : we were half board plus but downgraded to b n b Definitely not for the British palate ,it's a buffet with a menu with about 3 starters and 4 mains mostly fish in one shape or form This isn't an adult only hotel as I don't mind children on holiday but we are next door to a family who's baby wakes up ( crying) at 6am now I wouldn't mind but considering we can't get to sleep till 1am makes this old dear a bit tired So if booking just bare these things in mind Location is faultless beach is literally 5 min walk

First 2 week holiday for 3 years but well worth the effort. Hotel was fantastic and right at the heart of the resort and so close to the fantastic beach. Staff were great especially Marcelo, Aime and Filipe in the restaurant. Only complaint was the taxi rank down the side of the hotel which was very noisy at night

We visited in February 2020. Very nice clean and friendly place. The rooms have everything you need and the bed was very comfy. The safe is charged by the day and key operated rather than a combination type. The shower was very strong and you get toiletries provided. The mini bar prices are reasonable. There is a fair gym at the hotel which is accessible all the time. Can get a bit warm in there but better that way for a work out. There is a cash machine immediately outside the hotel entrance which is handy as the area is generally cash only. Right opposite the beach which is great. The hotel is on the main strip which is also handy. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance. The breakfast at the hotel is very nice. We went half board plus so got breakfast, evening meal ( with one drink ) included which was also good but could do with being a bit hotter at times. Plenty of variety. The evening meal was €19 if you needed to pay. The drinks at the bar are good for the price. The servers especially Manuel were very friendly and quick. They served drinks at the pool area and nothing is too much effort. Manuel even took our sun bed table away to be cleaned before he brought our drinks out. Very nice person and an asset to the hotel. The pool is heated and even under a removable cover. Plenty of beds available for when we went. The food at lunch time around the pool is also great value and very tasty. If you are leaving for home early they provide a breakfast take away box( need to order ). Great touch if you are leaving before the breakfast restaurant opens. I would definitely come back again even in February as the weather was surprisingly warn around 20 degrees.

I was absolutely gobsmacked by how I’ve been treated by the staff at Jupiter Algarve Hotel! On arrival the staff requested I left an abnormal deposit of £250 to hold until the end of my trip, so they could inspect the room & make sure everything was fine & there was no damage to the room. Usually hotels would request a passport to hold on to. I didn’t have a problem with that as it seemed like a genuine respected hotel. On the day of my check out, I requested the money back. They mentioned they would inspect the room and if everything was perfect they would have the £250, I repeat £250! ( which is a lot of money) sent back immediately. I was travelling around Portugal so a quarter of a grand was very significant to have with me. I sent numerous emails & called loads. They were extremely unhelpful. They placed me on hold for over an hour and seemed to be waiting for me to hang up. I finally received an email after a week of calls and emails. They said they have issued the payment and I should have received it. I obviously hadn’t received it & after speaking to my bank which Jupiter advised to do, Santander said they haven’t received a payment. I then have sent multiple emails to Jupiter to pay me my money as there is nothing the bank can do. They have continued to ignore me. The hotel is lovely but there are plenty other places in the area I wish I had went to! I was in Portugal Travelling with a tiny budget because of this & I would really want this message to be seen by people who visit & dismiss this hotel. I would hate for people to go through what I have gone through. I still haven’t gotten to the end of it as they will not reply! Traumatic experience for me!

Dear johncX7237MK Thank you very much for choosing our hotel during your visit at Praia da Rocha, and for taking the time to share your opinion regarding your stay. We are pleased to know that you find Jupiter Algarve a lovely and well-located hotel. On special occasions we are requesting a 250 euros deposit to cover possible damages, in your case this deposit was done with credit card, please note that no money was taken, but a pre-authorization was made, the amount was never withdrawn from your account, being merely captive. Since the 12th of July, the day after your departure from our hotel, we have exchanged several e-mails with you, including the proof of the reversal of the pre-authorization. We also inform you, several times, to check with your bank, because what we would have to do was done immediately, the day after your check-out. All your emails have been answered and the last one has been answered on 27 July by our Financial Manager, who has looked at your situation closely and given you the same feedback given previously. We do apologize for any inconvenience caused by this situation, and we remain at your disposal for any further clarification. Kind Regards
