04-11-2015 Great place to spend some days relaxing....Fantastic view! Staff is very kind! It's not a brand new and modern hotel with modern furnitures... It's more old fashion style.. But still, the value is on the view and the localization.

Most everything in this Pousada is great: The location and breathtaking views. Sitting outside enjoying a drink after a day of hiking and looking at the sunset. Customer service - everyone we dealt with was exceptional. However, it needs updating - the carpets are in dire need of being replaced. The rooms show significant wear and tear. Everything is clean,... More

We stayed here for 1 night on a motorbike. Go careful when entering as the incline is steep and the final small hill into the unsecured car park is very steep. The hotel rooms are quiet but a bit smelly with water stains under the radiators however the rooms are clean. The pool was freezing in Early October and not... More

We booked 2 nights here for the view. It was just as well that after our first 24 hours, the rain finally stopped, the clouds lifted and we could see it! Wow. Before then, however, it was starting to feel like an error of judgment. Our room was like a cheap chalet. Worn furniture, very basic, a bathroom verging on... More

Ok so the rooms are a bit old and the restaurant overpriced but you forgive it all for THAT view that you get from your balcony or the hotel balcony and for that authentic old world hunting lodge vibe.

The pousada do geres (or: pousada sau bento - as you can read on the sign at the road!?) is located beautifully. The rooms and the entire property are clean. However, everything looks a little old fashioned and quite used - especially the carpets and the dark wooden windows. I am sorry to say; I was reminded of a good... More

The pousada has a great view and that is about all. It is very high price for what you get. We had a standard room with an extremely small bathroom, the carpet was not very clean and the breakfast was not at all comparable with what we got in the pousada of porto altough we apid the same price there....
