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.

The Pousada ist wonderful located, the view ist breathtaking and the nearer surrounding perfect to discover the nature (the lake, the hills, the national park) and for sports (hiking, mountainbiking...). The Pousada itself has so much character. The rooms are beautiful, the lounge invites for a cozy get together, the meals in the restaurant are delicious. The staff is extremely...

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. 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...

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...

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?

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
