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. The hotel was tired, the staff in the bar were non-existent and the buffet meals we were served in the evenings were grave reminders of package holiday meals of... More

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.

I stayed at the Pousada da Caniçada for 2 nights, mid-June, room 205. 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. The building blends perfectly with the landscape and has a quaint, charming mountain lodge look. Most rooms have a... More

Distant from a town, and the national park, and other restaurants. Nevertheless it has a beautiful view. Room is comfortable, restaurant somewhat formal with very good food and service. Good breakfasts. Nice pool.

Not your traditional Pousada..more like a Alpine style hotel. Room was modern,large, clean and comfortable and we could see clear across the valley. We had a very nice terrace and on our arrival we ate lunch outside.The breakfast buffet had a good variety of fruits, meats, buns, pastries, yogurt as well as eggs and very good bacon..The front reception was...

This was a 5 star experience in the middle of the mountains. The staff was so nice and polite, the food was incredible (although a bit expensive), the bedrooms were big and the beds were super comfortable and clean. The hotel is perfectly placed, as you easily get to the towns around and also get to enjoy a quiet place... More

Tucked away in the Geres National Park in northern Portugal this Pousada is a gem. Set on a hillside overlooking forests and lakes the views from balconies are magnificent. There is plenty to do in the area with many attractive villages as well as numerous walking routes through the park. Guides for these routes are available at local tourist offices.... More

The pousada is excellent situated to visit the National park and has a very nice view over it. The common areas are basic but cosy and so are the – very small - rooms. The air-conditioning didn’t work. The breakfast and dinner are nothing special but they have a nice wine list. Also remarkable is the excellent pool. In my... More

Pousadas used to have a reliably excellent reputation, but now that they've been privatised, it's hit and miss. This one, apart from the view, is one to miss. The bedroom smelled of damp mould -"from carpet cleaner" we were told but the carpets were all dirty and stained. The bathroom was poky with no functioning ventilation so our swimmers still... More
