Over the years I've visited probably close to 20 pousadas and Sao Bento / Geres has to be one of the absolute best. Wonderfully maintained, full of character, with magnificent location and great views. We stayed two nights and enjoyed two excellent breakfasts and two first class meals. Eusebio was a skilled bartender and waiter. Our room was fine and contrary to other reviews, the Wi-Fi worked. Our only problem was the room lacked convenience outlets for chargers. Sadly, I'm guessing no more than four of the 38 rooms were occupied, so they probably lose money, and the room rates were very, very reasonable.
What could have been better? The drink prices were a bit steep and we could have used a bit of guidance from the staff as to the best route to see the sights of the National Park. We'll just have to come back to enjoy this magical place

Good option for accomodation to visit Peneda Gerês national park. The region is beautiful the waterfalls included. The Pousada has very good views to the valley and the dam lake. The staff is nice and professional, specially in the restaurant that serves very good food either. Breakfast is according to a four star hotel. The rooms are cozy and clean. There is an outdoor swimming pool. To regret the charge permission they ask at check-in (in value of the stay plus 50€ per day), neither legal nor respectful.

Room Tip: Choose a room with views to the valley

Geres is one of the most natural environments in Portugal and Pousada do Geres is a very good place to stay while visiting the region.
It has an amazing view over the valley, whilst not being on the "confusion" of Geres (ok, confusion and Geres in the same sentence is a bit exaggerated).
The place is a bit old-fashioned, but it's worth cause of the location, service and coziness of the whole experience.

Room Tip: always choose the lake-view ones: price diff is worth!

Amazing hotel, great staff and top of all is the view of the amazing lake.

One slight issue is the Wi-Fi is not available in rooms. Overall excellent location and lovely hospitality. Will surely return soon for a personal trip with wife.

The Pousada ist wonderful located, the view ist breathtaking and the nearer surrounding perfect to discover the nature (the lake, the hills, the national park) and for sports (hiking, mountainbiking...). The Pousada itself has so much character. The rooms are beautiful, the lounge invites for a cozy get together, the meals in the restaurant are delicious. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I felt very comfortable.
