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. The hotel was pretty much as we had remembered it with one exception. The dinning room, has been "lightened up" a bit, and we feel it lessened the charm of... More

What a delight! We didn’t expect such marvelous and grand scenery. Wonderful staff all around, especially at the front desk, very nice restaurant, great views. We did a slight upgrade to get a small terrace with valley and mountain view, which was a real treat. The park is outstanding, but be ready for some serious mountain driving on the winding... More

Spectacular location friendly people, but lots of kids and very family oriented. Food was ok and zero wine selection. Do not get stuck there between 3-7:30 if you are hungary unless you like sliced bread and cheese?

The pousada da Caniçada could easily be a 5* place, but it isn´t. The place is incredible, the location is incredible, the staff is very friendly. The rooms are in serious, serious need of an update.

Great location with a stunning view over the lake and Geres. Nice pool, old but classy rooms and really the old-fashioned outdoor atmosphere. Allthough the food is not much more than 'okay', the terrace seating is spectacular! Don't forget to have a swim at Tahiti Cascade.

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
