We had, in the summer of 2015, four-day stay at Pousada do Geres. The hotel has a great location overlooking the mountain areas and are well placed for trips to the national park. Book a room with a view - it's fantastic. The staff is helpful with directions for walking tours in the national park and if you want good...

We arrived here after visiting the pousadas in Alijo and Braganza, We anticipated that this stop, which are all at Pestana hotels/pousadas, would be a highlight. Nothing could have been further removed from our expectations. The view of Canicada is there-- should you be lucky enough to have the right room. Ours, which was the size of a rabbit hutch,...

This hotel is situated on a mountain with an exceptional view of the river below. It is close to the monastary of sao bento and worth a visit to sit on the outdoor patio and have a drink.

A very comfortable pousada with a wonderful terrace and unique view on the lakes. The restaurant is good though by no means excellent (and rather expensive). The problem is that there are not too many good restaurant in the area (except for the Lurdes Cappella in Geres).

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
