It's a lovely, clean hotel, better than the pictures that are shown on the website. The staff are helpful and very friendly especially the poolside staff. Our room didn't have a view it overlooked a rock wall 3 metres away, this was disapointing as the hotel didn't appear to be fully booked and we stayed for 6 nights. A room with a view would make the experience better, as you could then use the private balcony to read or enjoy a drink.

Hotel Micalosu is a really friendly hotel. Set out on the hillside with beautiful views to the sea, it makes for the perfect location for a relaxing break. The staff were always ready to help, offering advice, making phone calls on our behalf for information (such as local trips, restaurants and scooter hire) and giving us lifts to and from the beach. The hotel has a homely 'village' feel, a great pool with beautiful views along the coast and the advantage of being up a hill and so a bit cooler with a breeze on scorching hot days. Most visitors had a car which is an advantage but not a necessity...as long as you don't mind a 25 minute walk in to Cannigione (it is a steep climb!), which we didn't, but it won't suit everyone! I would thoroughly recommend Hotel Micalosu and the area to couples, families and solo travellers alike - I would love to go back.
"We had an excellent stay, but be careful to specify your room"
On arrival, we were shown to our room, which was very disappointing. Whilst the bedroom was clean and adequately furnished, the bathroom was below par. Worse, the external door had a clear glass panel that was covered only by a soiled piece of cloth. The hotel's own web site stated that all rooms had either a terrace or a private garden. This room had neither. We returned to Reception and complained. The response was excellent - they said that they had become aware of the error on their web site in July (after we had booked) and had subsequently changed it. They moved us to another room, which we could not fault, and which had a lovely balcony looking over the swimming pool. Most of the rooms are of a very good standard. However, we would not have wanted to be at the front of the hotel, as there is a busy road outside. There is only Italian terrestrial TV in the rooms. There is free internet access. The swimming pool is superb, and big enough for serious swimmers. The views are sensational. The gardens and large grounds are well maintained. The staff were all friendly and attentive. The food was good without being outstanding. Breakfast was the typical Italian cold meat, bread and pastries, and a very good fruit bowl. The hotel is quite remote, so a hire car is essential. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, but we were (eventually) lucky with our room. We would recommend anyone intending to book to insist on a room overlooking the swimming pool.

After reading some of the reviews before we left I was slightly concern but all I can say is there is obviously no pleasing some people!! BRILLIANT staff from the moment we were met at the airport, they could not do enough to make your stay special, outstanding with the children nothing was to much trouble, even when they were not working they would willingly interact with them.Lovely spacious apartments with amazing sea views, all requirements for self catering, cleaned every day with clean towels daily and bedding changed after 3 days. oh and plenty of toilet rolls! One of the most important things was how safe the children were day or night you could walk anywhere with out a second thought. We managed without a car, but would probably recommend hiring one (if you are brave enough to get behind the wheel and tackle the roads and other drives). The beach is perfect for sun bathing, swimming, snorkelling, canoeing or any other of the water sports on offer its safe with life guards and staff to entertain the children. The sea is crystal clear and you can watch the marine life whilst relaxing in a canoe. Excellent holiday would defiantly recommend it

We realised as soon as we arrived that we were at a very exclusive place, within 24hrs had settled in to the exquisite surroundings. The food was superb, especially the daily lunch experience!Wonderful setting, we had the most relaxing holiday ever! We will return!
Extremely well managed hotel with excellent staff & friendly feel. Spotlessly clean & relaxed atmosphere. Lovely restaurant - open air with spectacular views over the bay at Cala Di Volpe, food is very nice if a little simple, but top quality service in all areas. Very nice pool area, again spotless & well maintained, as are the gardens.
Will definitely return - highly recommended!!
