We found the Calema Hotel in Monte Gordo fairly average/nothing special. The apartment was however very spacious, and clean, and the reception staff extremely helpful.
We were half board, so ate every morning and evening in the restaurant which was very small and pokey - if you were a couple you had to sit squashed in the middle of the room - there were tables for 4 and more around the side, but on more than one occasion guests were very rudely shouted at if they dared attempt to sit there if there were only two of them. Understandable if the restaurant was busy - but as not many guests used it, then I saw no need for that attitude. We could not complain about the food in the evening - even though there wasn't much of a choice, we really liked what was on offer, although I would definitely not recommend eating there if you are a vegetarian, or even if you are someone who loves their puddings - as there was hardly any choice of desert - 2 flan type dishes and/or fruit. Also If you like your breakfasts, then don't eat there either; only bread rolls, with ham/cheese, Jam/marmalade, 1 choice of yoghurt flavour, and 1 choice of cereal. OK I suppose if you were going for a short time, but it got very boring after 10 days!!
Monte Gordo itself was lovely - HUGH beach, - though noticeably hardly any young families. Certainly at the time of year we went (September) the average "Tourists" I would say were early retirement age and above.
We would go back to Monte Gordo, but probably find a different hotel.
