This lovely pousada overlooks a deep valley with a beautiful river / lake - fabulous countryside - the pousada is attractive, clean and nicely appointed.
The staff are very friendly and the food in the restaurant is very good indeed, and not over-priced.
Make sure you book a room which has a verrandah or balcony.
The pousada is quite difficult to find - my state-of-the-art gps kept taking us to a certain hamlet on the mainroad leading north away from the lake, but no sign of the pousada - it is actually located further on north up the hill on the left about 2 miles away from where the gps says it is.
It is an enchanting place to stay.

Room Tip: Book a room with a balcony or verrandah

This was our first(of 4) Pousadas where we stayed for 3 nights. Lovely view from our room, the room was spacious and all facilities well maintained. The swimming pool was excellent and the staff both friendly and welcoming.

Room Tip: Best views from 2nd floor

We spent three nights here as part of a tour staying in Pousadas, all I can say is if the following Pousadas are as good we will be more than happy. The staff were friendly and could not be more helpful, very comfortable room with the most spectacular views over the lake and mountains beyond, we felt like we were really on holiday in a relaxed mode after only being there for a couple of hours, surely the sign of a good hotel. Lovely pool which was very clean and well kept, would thoroughly recommend for a relaxing stay.

Room Tip: Our room 207 and rooms either side have fabulous views of the lake, plus you are away from the main block and the car park.

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
