great hotel, good service, worth spending the money on a room with a view. 2 days is enough time to drive around and admire the views. Do not bother to go through the park to Spain, the views are better on the Portuguese side. Go to Vieira do Minho ( next town over ) pick up a nice bottle of...

The Pousada is very well located and some rooms have stunning views over the lake and surrounding mountains. There is a beautiful and inviting pool.The room I was allocated to was nice, although the bathroom is very tiny. I was on my own so no problem there but with two persons the space is really not sufficient. Bathroom fixtures are...

The room had an amazing view across the valley. The place is beautiful. While the room was a nice size the bathroom was tiny. So small that the toilet seat wouldn't stay up as the toilet bowl was squeezed so close to the water tank. Sound minor? I found it annoying. The food at the restaurant is very limited which...

We stayed for four nights in room which has a side view of the river and everyone must admit that the view is amazing. You'll get a better view on the terrace and at the restaurant. However it's a charming pousada with character it would benefit from a refresh in the rooms (already said by other visitors). The furniture of...

Charming pousada with character perched on top of mountain. As mentioned in recent reviews it would benefit from a refresh, especially the rooms.

The location is outstanding, the hotel a little bit old but charming. The room offered to us was small and dark. For just 28 Euro more per night we had the perfect room with a terrace with a perfect view into the valley in the new part of the hotel. The upgrade was worth every cent of it. The restaurant...

We stayed here for two nights in room 213 which has a side view of the man made lake. As previous reviewers have said the view is amazing. Shame the pousada does not reflect this beauty.

As others have said, it is all about location at this pousada. On the southern edge of the Parque Nacional de Peneda-Gerês, it overlooks the valley and lake (by Gerês) and the peaks behind it. The views from the terrace and from the balconies are stunning. Service is friendly (as is usual in Portugal) and generally efficient. The lodge atmosphere...

Most Pousadas are nicely located, but this one close to the Geres Nat Park is really nicely located - overlooking the valley, water and mountains. We had a Junior Suite (believe the only one they have) and the balcony allows privacy as well as fantastic outlook.

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
