Over the years I've visited probably close to 20 pousadas and Sao Bento / Geres has to be one of the absolute best. Wonderfully maintained, full of character, with magnificent location and great views. We stayed two nights and enjoyed two excellent breakfasts and two first class meals. Eusebio was a skilled bartender and waiter. Our room was fine and...

Good option for accomodation to visit Peneda Gerês national park. The region is beautiful the waterfalls included. The Pousada has very good views to the valley and the dam lake. The staff is nice and professional, specially in the restaurant that serves very good food either. Breakfast is according to a four star hotel. The rooms are cozy and clean....

Geres is one of the most natural environments in Portugal and Pousada do Geres is a very good place to stay while visiting the region. It has an amazing view over the valley, whilst not being on the "confusion" of Geres (ok, confusion and Geres in the same sentence is a bit exaggerated). The place is a bit old-fashioned, but...

Amazing hotel, great staff and top of all is the view of the amazing lake. One slight issue is the Wi-Fi is not available in rooms. Overall excellent location and lovely hospitality. Will surely return soon for a personal trip with wife.

I've spent my honeymoon 25 years ago in this Pousada, and every time I go back I find new details that enchant me. Also something that never changes and still marvels me every time, the beautiful view over the Caniçada Dam while savouring a drink sitting outside.

Grand scenery for photos. The Hotel is a big wood Chalet. Nice and clean rooms. It looks like we are at the Alps. Professional Staff. A lot of fresh air, because we are in the central National Parque of Geres.

This was our second visit to this hotel in four years. We loved the hotel so much we wanted to return. No doubt it the view that lured us back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada do Geres, Canicada, is right in the Peneda-Geres National Park, among the breath-taking forests, the translucent cascading waters and the unforgettable sights. Geres is one of Portugal's more attractive Natural Regions, considered by UNESCO to be a World Biosphere Reserve. The Pousada is located at an authentic vantage point, overlooking the Canicada dam in the Cavado River. In the background you can see the end of the Portuguese territory and the beginning of the Spanish territory. The landscape is of such a beauty that you will feel the need to swap the comfort of the Pousada for the chance to discover the Minho Mountains. The Pousada's restaurant offers regional cuisine with influence from rural farming and made from natural products. The honey, the reservoir trout, the baby goat, Barrosa veal, the sausages, the garden vegetables and the Minho desserts are unique delicacies, true treasures of the Portuguese cuisine. ... more   less
