Jupiter Algarve Hotel

The Jupiter Algarve Hotel has an incredibly polished look. The pool’s very smart and is framed by a sun terrace with lime-green loungers and pale parasols. When you fancy a change of scenery, the hotel overlooks Praia da Rocha’s beach, so you’re only a short walk away from the tempting sand.

Inside, loungers surround the hydro pool and steam bath in the spa. You can also sign up for massages and beauty treatments.

The hotel’s restaurant specialises in buffet spreads. During the day, you can also head to the pool bar for drinks, and after dinner, there’s a live performance every evening.
