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.

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.

great hotel staff were very friendly and attentive

Posted 05-Oct-2013
Pros: ever thing
Location: only downside as not near to any local activities.You need to hire a car to enjoy these.
Food as excellent and not repetitive Best hotel we have stayed at for a long time. Would not hesitate to recommend to our friends. Evening entertainment was also good. Pool facilities were to die for.

The infinity pool will blow your mind!

Posted 01-Oct-2013
Pros: The infinity pool is definitely the most impressive feature.
Cons: Rooms could be made a little more luxurious, and meals could be a little more varied.
Location: Definitely hire a car - the hotel is kind of in the middle of nowhere and I don't think buses are that regular.
We are a young (26) couple who stayed at the Michelangelo for a week in September 2013. Temperature was perfect - around 30 degrees C, with very little cloud and quite windy (which was nice). Infinity pool area is amazing - great bar, good music, nice cocktails, amazing view, comfortable sunbeds. Rooms are fine but they are photographed incredibly well on the hotel website, and are not quite as amazing and spacious as they look! But still fine - just a little more basic than we expected. Breakfast was great - fresh pancakes and waffles each morning; would be good to have a variety with different options for breakfast each morning, and more fruit choices... But still good. We did not have lunch or dinner in the hotel at all. Definitely hire a car - the hotel is kind of in the middle of nowhere and I don't think buses are that regular; we had a car so Kos town was only 15 min drive away. We found some good restaurants on the island - namely Lofaki (up the side of a mountain - great sunset views, but be careful not to take the perilous mountain road route to get there!), Petrino (in Kos town, with an amazing garden dining area and excellent Greek food) and El Gallo (tapas restaurant on the waterfront in Kos Town, on G. Averof St). There were sadly a lot of very touristy places in Kos that we tried to avoid, but these 3 restaurants really impressed.

peaceful oasis

Posted 24-Sep-2013
Pros: The staff,the ambience and above all the extensive infinity pool
Cons: Very little; perhaps the bathroom lighting could be improved.
Location: Quiet,between minor road and the sea, little to do nearby but Kos town 15 minutes away by frequent bus service
Excellent facilities,attentive but unobtrusive staff,everywhere clean and neat.Ideal for a restful holiday; not for those seeking full on entertainment,
