We stayed here 3 nights. The place was very difficult to find. The room was quiet small and not very modern. We had to drive every day a lot to see more interesting places. Breakfast was not a big choice, but very nice service by the waitress. Dinner was really good, with allways a nice bottle of good wine.

Went with my wife, sister and brother in law who were visiting from the UK. Firstly let me say the service was excellent, but that was all that was. The chestnut soup was calde verde with some added chestnuts - poor and tasteless. The 3 others had the duck and all 3 were cold. I had the veal. It could... More

It is in fact almost half way between Vila Real and Amarante and once you have the instructions easy to find. We learned this was the first pousada built in Portugal ... in... More

This pousada was by far the most expensive that we stayed at during our time in Portugal, and sadly the most disappointing. Yes, the views from the bedrooms, lounge and restaurant are good, and yes the rooms were comfortable and clean. But I am amazed that none of the reviews here, or the review in the Rough Guide (which has... More

It was a long and winding road off to the Pousada de Sao Goncalo, located high in the Marao Mountain range . The roads are curvy and wind higher and higher into the sky but off in the distance is the orange tiled roof with the blue and white paint and there stands the pousada ! Upon entering, it is...

We had booked for 2 nights expecting really good class accommodation. The whole hotel was sadly in need of complete refurbishment. We complained about the shabby state of the first room we were shown to but were told that the hotel was full. We were given a better room for the second night but for the price they charge they...
