just back from here and had been worried by some of the reviews but I dont know what these people expected for the price etc.!! three of us, good apartment, paid for air conditioning after 3 nights as the temp was 36-40 degrees all week!! we did have a lot of mossie bites no matter what we did to stop them but that was expected in the heat. the receptionist MARIA who was on in the evenings was very helpful and sorted out air con for us as we were suffering a bit through lack of sleep in the heat. the snack bars and restaurant were very good and the staff really friendly and helpful. great boat trip to Corfu town for shopping,we also paid a lot for snack lunch but presumed it was inflated town prices.the harbour area was lovely for eating at night we never had a poor meal etc and we found a gem called Yani's which was on the left fork road on the way down to Kassiopi Harbour, wonderful views of the sea and sunset, great service and fab food. a bit dearer than the others but great value and well worth it. we all felt that the one thing lacking was a shuttle bus service to the harbour and back as a routine service as it was a very hot walk with little shade,we realise that they would like us to stay there but everyone likes to explore and eat by the sea if possible. the beaches are cooler than the pool and you do need sea shoes to get in the water as the pebbles and rocks are too difficult to walk over barefoot. Mythos beer very good and the whole area was lovely with great bays and scenery. the taxi from the harbour cost us seven euros so he must have thought we were so glad to have a ride back from the beach in the heat that we didnt mind the cost!! it is steep walking back so be aware of that. overall a great place to stay, very helpful local people and the British folk we met were good fun and no yobs in sight.

Ok the drive from Corfu Town is not for everyone and does take a while, but I found the view breathtakingly beautiful .
Michelangelo Village appartment complex was fine, the newly built pool was the highlight along with the friendly staff. Paying extra for air con was annoying, greek pumping is tempermental and room service is not as sparkling as elsewhere. I always take antibacterial wipes and a pillowcase with me anyway (obviously a nut!) Its an advantage to organise your trips early, especially if you are nor keen on self drive, we usually like to use public transport but this was not really an option.
We did Theos BBQ, Aqualand and Corfu Sundowner all of which were well run and we enjoyed. We went with two teenagers for a week and had great weather, very hot, enjoyed the pool, relaxing and two local pebble beaches where the water was very clear for snorkelling and went out sailing. The local restaurants were all good, particularly enjoyed the beach taverna ,sorry don't know name, and also Janis on our last evening. The walk to Kassiopi wasn't a problem for us, but may be for those with younger children or for older adults. Overall the location won out over any quibbles with Michelangelo appartment

I've just got back from Michelangelo apartments n the weather was amazinggg. it was hitting 50 everyday but it was hard cooling
off as the pools were quite warm and its hard 2 sleep as night as theres no air con,unless your willing 2 pay up 2 £160 euro for it! The pools are small and the chlorine turned my hair green which wasnt nice.staff were soooo nice and the little shop the managers mum owns was handy.dont take young children here as theres no kids entertainment its more for an age range of 30 +. the clubs didnt open in the town til 2.30 which was too late for us in the heat so we didnt have a decnt night out.i didnt like the walk to the town it was a very bumpy road with lots of fast scooters going past,theres no pavement so u have 2 be really careful as the drivers arent considerate to tourists.the appartment rooms arent that nice we had a broken shower so it leaked alot and the kitchen equipment is very basic with only 2 hobs so u can only cook small meals.the foods nice in the restaurant and the bingo,quiz,karoke n greek nights r good fun. The beachs are small pebble beachs so its painful on your feet and the waters arent that clear.they have turtles u can feed and pick up freely in the complex which was lovely.overall it was a good holiday but i was dissapointed with the rooms.

We stayed in Michelangelo from 1st to 15th June and whilst the weather during the first week was changeable, it soon
picked up in week 2. The Michaelangelo apartment village is on the outskirts of Kassiopi - a gentle 10-15 minute downhill stroll but can be a struggle on the way back (?5 for a taxi is well worth it!) There's a restaurant on site serving breakfast, lunch and dinner and the two English girls - Rose and Lucy make you very welcome (and the food is good and very reasonable too). The bar opens early evening until Emilio decides it's time to close and George is amazing at remembering your drinks night after night. Nelly on reception along with her team are always ready to help and Naomi the Thomson Rep was the best rep we've ever encountered. Our room was always cleaned well but we did hear of people who weren't quite as lucky. As for the resort - there was a wide variety of bars and restaurants from snacks to excellent (but not cheap) meals. A trip to Janis Restaurant is a must (pre-book a table with a view over the beach for the sunset) but don't think about the cost - the food is fantastic. Try the Fishing Trip (we used Cosmic) on the Pirate ship either evening or all day and if you want to experience the place to go in the future try a day trip to Albania (we used Thomson and would recommend it even though it's a bit dearer than some). From a drink in the Harbour Bar to a meal in the Three Brothers (have any fish dish and you won't be disappointed) or just a stroll on the harbour there's something for everyone. However I would say it's more a resort for 30+ adults than children or 18-30 groups. Beaches are few and far between but further down the road from Michaelangelo (about 1.5km) is Avlaki - a crescent shaped shingle beach with a couple of tavernas and there are small ones dotted about Kassiopi which can be reached from the harbour or even by boat. Hire a car and visit some of the other nearby villages/beaches - Kalamaki, Barbati, San Stefanos and Nissaki to name a few. If you want a quiet holiday - but with a bit of life for a change then this is the place to go. The location, staff, accommodation are excellent and we would recommend a visit
