Going on holiday in Portimao

Portimao is blessed by year-round fine weather including mild winters and scorching summers. The summer season is considered the high season, so expect more crowds, particularly on beaches around August. To avoid these crowds and find cheaper deals, Portimao is beautiful in spring and late summer. From February to March, orange trees are in bloom with fragrant, colourful petals. This can make a pretty backdrop to inland hikes or coastal walks. While the ocean may be too cold for swims in early spring, things start to heat up by late April. Winter is tranquil and quiet in Portimao and the Algarve. Some resorts and restaurants close throughout the region, but most of Portimao’s services remain open.

The opinion of the Voyage Privé travel expert on Portimao

Jupiter Marina Hotel 4*

Portimao is a richly historic jewel on the Algarve coast. From its sun-drenched beaches to its colourful plazas, it’s a treat for families and friends to explore. This prized location on the Arade River offers a wealth of aquatic activities and excursions. Follow the stunning Algarve coast east to discover the iconic Benagil Caves, among other delights.

Portimao – from medieval forts to fishing factories

Portimao’s intriguing history is written in its unique and vibrant streets. With a strong Moorish influence from the 11th century, the town has roots in the ancient Phoenicians. Explore historic castles like Castelo de São João do Arade or enjoy the Gothic bravado of 15th-century Igreja Matriz. Its more recent history as a fishing hub provides a unique 19th-century backdrop of factory conversions and museums. Chief among these is Museu de Portimão, an award-winning museum that's among the best in the Algarve.

Hotel Portimao, customer reviews

Hotel Jupiter Marina (Portimao - Portugal)

Customers testify
We really loved this hotel, everything from the decor to the food, and the service. The staff were attentive without being an obvious presence, and always extremely pleasant. The view rom the bar of the Arade river is beautiful, and if anything even better from the infinity pool. The hotel is in an excellent position, and a 15 minute walk takes you into Prai da Rocha with it's beautiful beach and lively bars and the hotel offers a daytime shuttle service for those who find walking a challenge. In the opposite direction you can walk easily into Portimao, which has a fine church and several bars around the square where you can sit and watch the fountains and enjoy a glass of wine. There is a local bus which leaves opposite the hotel if you prefer. If you want to venture further afield there are several bus services which leave from the area around the square, paying on the bus. We went to Alvor which is approximately 5 miles from the hotel and it was €3 return.

The staff at the hotel, the roof top pool and bar areas were all excellent. Portimao is an ideal base for exploring the area - and it was great to be in a Portugese town rather than a resort.

beautiful hotel that opened on March 1, 2018, well quiet place 10 minutes walk from the beaches but the hotel offers free shuttles, the staff is very welcoming and the restaurant is excellent with a very varied breakfast with fruit juice fresh and fresh fruit (mangoes, pineapple, kiwis ...), pool and rooftop panoramic bar, beautiful, we spent a very good stay and Portimao is much prettier than Faro

Perfect hotel at all levels. Nice clean Scandinavian style room, large balcony with table and chairs ... No noise around our room not giving side road. Bathroom just no storage but otherwise well equipped ... Location 10/15 minutes walk from the beautiful beach with plenty of restaurants or the city .... Ideal location to discover Portimao on foot.
