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. Unfortunately the restaurant serves very expensive meals that were tasteless and inedible. In particular the goat and rice dish was dry and... More

If it was all about the view, this pousada would be rated 5 star! The view from the terrasse as well from the room with private balcony is stunning. But the pousada seems slightly worn out and even thoug the kitchen knows how to cook, the food in the restaurant is a wee to simple/honest. We had dinner the 4... More

We stayed here for two nights during a trip to the Gerês National Park. The staff were welcoming and friendly. We had a beautiful view from our bedroom as well as from the restaurant. Unfortunately the decoration of the rooms is tired and the bathroom could do with being modernised. Breakfast service was varied but the coffee is the worst... More

The location is great. the view is great, the aera of the national park is great... Unfortunatly we could not have a room with a balcony even if the view was nice.

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). Breakfast service is excellent, served on the same terrace with the wonderful view.... More

We stayed at this Pousada as part of Titan holiday. We were supposed to be at the Pousad Mosteria de Amares but Pestana claimed to have internal problems hence the change.

This lovely pousada offers nice views from the restaurant and terrace. Rooms are not big, but adequate. The swimmingpool is nice. Friendly staff. The National park is closeby and there is a lot to see in the area.

The Pousada is set in a wonderful location, in the middle of the forest, with a spectacular view over the Caniçada dam reservoir and the Gerês mountain range.
