My daughter and I went to Monte Gordo - mainly for some sunshine and cycling. We got both.
The hotel was spotless - a must for me. We had a broken drawer on arrival - not a problem, this got whisked away and was fixed and back in place by the time we came back to our room. The staff took a few days to warm up (maybe they thought we were complainers!), but were very helpful after a few days. We even borrowed an board & iron - it was not trouble for the chap to bring up.
Menu was "set" in the evening, a bit unusual for our tastes but several choices and ample for our needs (stopped you overeating!) - lovely surroundings.
We hired bikes and cycled to and from Villa Real every day - except the trip days. Nothing much in Monte Gordo, but perfect if you're looking to get a quiet spot on the beach - plenty to be had. Supermarket prices were pretty similar to the larger Pingu Doce in Villa Real.
A quick ferry crossing to Spain from Villa Real - cheap and cheerful. But watch your timing! don't go on a Monday - the wee zoo is closed! and things shut in the afternoon - there IS an hour difference between Spain and Portugal.
All in all a nice mother/daughter break.
