Lovely hotel with amazing views of Turkey

Posted 04-Aug-2014
Pros: the stunning location, the glorious views, the infinity pool, the friendly staff and the general quality of the place.
Cons: The flush on our loo was a bit temperamental.
Location: It is about half an hour by taxi from the airport at the far east of the island. there are things to do in the area and reception have information.
Myself and my two daughters shared a comfort room with sea view. We had a double bed and sofa bed which was fine (as long as you like a hard bed!). View was spectacular from large balcony- Infinity pool, sea and the coastline of Turkey. Food in the buffet restaurant was very good indeed and varied every day (we were there for a week). Ate in the a la carte restaurant twice and food was good too - portions are very large though! The infinity pool was amazing - very large, immaculately clean lovely poolside service from the bar. Great club sandwiches at the pool bar. Only swam in the sea from the each once - pebbly beach, clean water, lots of sun beds. About a 5 minute walk down. We used the spa which is really peaceful and relaxing - pool, massage showers, sauna and steam room all free to all-inclusive guests. We had some treatments which we paid for and which were really good. There is a hairdresser and manicure place there too. There are lots of steps to get up and down from restaurant to rooms and pool, so not suitable for people who might find steps difficult. We needed a late checkout and couldn't find out if we could have it until the morning of departure, but we got it (for €100) and could have stayed until 10pm. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Staff are lovely, food good and facilities excellent.

Beautiful Hotel but flawed

Posted 11-Jul-2014
Pros: as above
Cons: as above
Location: as above
The hotel looks beautiful, but is let down in a number of areas. As the Michelangelo is on a hill, the beach is a long walk down a steep hill and is actually stony, not pebbly, with grey dusty sand. However we preferred it because you had the room to move the sunbeds round to follow the sun. That could not be done by the Infinity Pool because the sun beds were crammed in with a foot between each set. This meant that you could be in full sun all day, not good in the hottest part of the year which is when we stayed there. We also had a flooded room when we let the bath water out only to find it bubbling up from a vent in the bathroom floor. Customer services cleaned the room but advised us to "let the bath water out slowly as it wasn't designed to cope with the flow of a bath emptying! Some of the changed towels and bed linen had tears in them, not good for a five star hotel. The hotel is also almost at the end of the road, with only Thermes before you hit the mountain wall, so there is little else to do there but stay in the hotel, or take the local bus into town (a 10 minute trip and a good service fortunately). We ended up hiring a car for four days to explore the island (highly recommended). This allowed us to see the beaches on the north of the island, which are much better and sandy and we spent a lot of time there. All in all, a very nice hotel, in the wrong place on the island and flawed in its detail.

Lovely Location

Posted 17-Jun-2014
Pros: Infinity pool, quiet, relaxing atmosphere
Cons: Evening entertainment was a bit boring.
Location: Isolated but good bus service to Kos town. We had a car for excursions to other towns/villages.
Hotel was great. Only downside was that it is a bit isolated. However there is a good bus service into Kos town ( about 15 mins) so if you want a change of surroundings, I recommend the bus. We went B&B as that gave us the option of eating out. The evening meal in the hotel was nothing special and I would imagine becomes very samey if you are all inclusive. The pool and rooms were great and we will go again.

What a Hotel!

Posted 27-May-2014
Pros: Everything.
Cons: Variety of food - if I was staying for any longer than a week, there was little variety in the lunch/dinner buffet.
Just got back from a blissful 4 days with my girlfriend at this hotel. Stunning Ocean Views, that compliments the 50 metre infinity pool perfectly. Friendly staff, clean rooms, good food. Also attracts friendly, polite and fun clientele. Firm believer in never going back anywhere I have been before, but would make an exception for this place. 1 thing though - bring trousers or you will not be able to eat dinner in the main hall :(.

Perfect relaxation spot

Posted 24-May-2014
Pros: Staff Atmosphere Setting
Cons: Very hard to fault
My wife and I travelled to Kos for 5 days, initially staying at the Michelangelo for 2 days. We lengthened this to all 5 days due to the lovely location, fantastic staff, relaxing setting and general welcoming vibe of both the hotel and guests. I really couldn't fault the staff. Every member of the team from front reception staff, to housekeeping, to restaurant staff were all very friendly, professional and keen to assist you. The infinity pool was beautiful and we could have happily stayed for another few days. Getting into Kos town was very easy by local bus as well. I would recommend whole heartedly for couples keen to have a relaxing, quiet break. Expedia enabled us to get the rooms for an absolute bargain as well!

I liked it

Posted 01-May-2014
It's a good hotel if your looking a 5* that works in April in Kos. The stuff is quite nice, the food is OK. The rooms are clean and new. The bathroom is finished by saving the costs (the shower head is the cheapest you could find it in the store). The tennis racquets are worn out, the lights in table tennis room works 1/4. The water in the spa pool is cold. Everything else is OK.

Beautiful resort off the beaten path. It is 8km from Kos Town. Would be helpful if hotel offered shuttle services to/from town, but renting a bicycle also easy way to get around. Food was great.

Lovely hotel in beautiful location.

Posted 27-Apr-2014
Pros: Infinity pool gorgeous and views over to Turkey
Cons: Shower.
Location: Short bus ride to Kos town for 3 euros return. Car hire is cheap and useful to visit the whole island.
Lovely week in the Michelangelo. Staff all very friendly and food very good. We were half board and we had all our breakfasts sitting outside. The rooms were very comfortable only negative being the water pressure and consequently the power of the shower particularly noticeable just prior to going for dinner every evening.
