Jupiter Albufeira is not open yet. There is a very long thread on this forum regarding the late opening and many families of holiday makers have been let down very badly. Depending on when you intend to visit I would go for somewhere other than Jupiter for this year anyway. Hopefully it will be up and running for next year.

Have you read the mega thread on the Jupiter Albufeira and its problems? You can skip the first 700 or so posts!

The two locations could hardly be more different. Jupiter Albufeira is the former Hotel Montechoro, rebuilt and rebranded. It is in a heavily built up area a mile or so from the beach called Praia da Oura, a few steps from the main tourist bar and partying areas of town called 'the strip' and not far from anywhere else.

If you really liked the location at Salgados Palm Village, then comparing it to the Jupiter Albufeira (which has had a lot of complaints already) would be wrong!

They are completely different types of areas and resorts, one being fairly quiet and scenic with beaches, the other being quite touristy and near to the centre of all the night life, so would think carefully and do your research before making a decision.

Thanks for the heads-up Cubsur, I went straight to Page 87, summarised the whole Jupiter situation, or should I say, mess, perfectly! That is a very sorry state of affairs!

Natasha12, good decision, if you loved Salgados Palms, you will hate anything in Montechoro.
