Welcome dear travel fans! I've been traveling around the world for 20 years and most of my trips were to Asia. I think I am crazy about Asia since I was a child and will be happy to share this passion with you...
During our vacation on Kos Island we stayed at the Sensimar Michelangelo resort & spa hotel.
As I mentioned a few times, the reason why we chose Kos as the place to go to for a vacation was the hotel. We spent a few days reading the reviews and viewing the pictures of the hotel and its infinity pool, and as a result we booked the flight and the hotel on Kos. It turned out to be the right choice.
We travelled a lot but it was one of the rare occasions when the description and the pictures fully reflect the reality. I must say that the reality turned out to be even better! We more than enjoyed our vacation on Kos Island and it was to a large extent due to the hotel.
We knew beforehand that we expected to get the highest possible pleasure from a hotel and booked a sea-view suit. The price difference was $15 but we got much more than we expected! We got a wonderful first row suit right in front of the pool.
Kos offers plenty of breathtaking views but the view from our room was just fantastic and unforgettable and we could enjoy it during our entire vacation. We would sit without saying a word enjoying the view day and night, early morning and late evening. One day we even didn’t go for a walk and spent wonderful time on our balcony speaking and enjoying the fantastic view.
I’m not sure that photos and videos can convey our feelings but in reality the view was charming and magnetic. I don’t know whether all the sea-view rooms were the same but as for our suite we found it really fantastic. It was a beautifully designed spacious room with a large and very comfortable bed, air conditioning and nice bathroom.
As I mentioned above our room was in the first row. The hotel is housed in a few buildings and small houses each of them having between nine and twelve rooms. One of the buildings dominating the whole complex is a building with lobby, restaurant, bar, Spa and wellness centre.
As for us we made half board booking. The hotel offered very good breakfasts including a large variety of cheeses and salads, several types of pudding and eggs. Besides, fresh juice and a wide selection of desserts were always available. The supper was nice too and included a wide selection of meat and fish dishes, salads, soups, spices and desserts. As you probably know from the hotel reviews, you are not permitted to bring your own water and you have to pay for it. But you just have to accept it as it is the rule common for most hotels.
The hotel complex is located 8 km from Kos town. If you rent a car on Kos Island you will never have any problems. Here is also a shuttle bus that runs every 15 minutes from early till late and the cost is 1.5 euro. If you are in a pinch you can take a taxi.
The complex offers three swimming pools the main and the most beautiful of which is an amazing infinity pool. Although the water is a bit cold swimming in it is really beyond words. Even just relaxing near the pool with a glass of cocktail is really cool. Apart from the pool there is Jacuzzi and a bar in the other, smaller pool.
The hotel has its own private beach. It can be regarded as one of the disadvantages as it is far from the hotel. Besides, it’s a beach covered with pebbles and even cobbles. Frankly speaking, it’s not the best beach on Kos Island.
Another disadvantage of the hotel is its location. You have to walk up the hill in order to reach it. Besides, strong winds always blow here and you never can understand what “wind” means until you feel it.
The hotel is for adults only though sometimes you can see kids there. It’s being presented as a 15+ hotel and if you are a couple looking for romance the hotel fits the bill.
Sensimar Michelangelo resort & spa does not offer some special night shows. Usually it is saxophone or a themed night but to my mind that’s enough.

As you understood from my reviews we liked the hotel very much and we highly recommend booking it!
