A lovely hotel with the most memorable view. A lovely property which provided us with a lovely oasis on our extended trip Tom Spain and.Portugal. We would recommend it as a especial treat if you're looking for one.

Rooms were tired and the whole place is in need of modernisation. There was a serious lack of staff whenever we needed them (although those we did meet were welcoming and helpful).
The hotel is in an isolated location and yet it does not offer a full restaurant service in the evenings. During our 3 day stay they only served a lackluster fixed price buffet, for meat eaters only - this meant we had to drive out on small country lanes in the dark hunting for restaurants instead of relaxing at our hotel.

We booked months in advance and elected not to pay in advance, as we wanted to have the cancellation option due to various health issues. I was therefore very surprised to be asked for payment on arrival, and then have to pay for extras on departure - bizarre, and didn't happen anywhere else on our journey through northern Spain and Portugal. We stayed in a superior balcony room which was worth paying extra for as we had the most amazing view from our small balcony, the room however was on the small size for a superior room.
You are likely to book this hotel on a half board basis in view of its location, so it was disappointing that the dinner menu did not change daily, and that certain things were unavailable on the menu.
Outside space in need of some tender loving care, with part of the terrace outside the main lounge area in a dreadful state, and whilst the pool area was lovely, the pool itself wasn't very clean and we didn't feel able to use it.

This chalet~style pousada is high above the Geres valley with the most magnificent views of the valley and national park. The rooms are very comfortable but not all of them have a balcony so I'd recommend you request a room that does. The dining room overlooks the valley and ~ if the tables haven't all gone ~ there are some tables on the outdoor patio for breakfast and dinner. The pool has a little cafe as well as another viewing point above it. Good food; friendly, helpful staff. A great location for exploring the area provided you have a car.

Came here because of a random picture found on the internet that took my breathe away and tracked all the way down to this cute cottage style accommodation. Location-wise, not the easiest to get around, but totally worth it with the view we got from our room and dining area
