A Wonderful Choice!
My wife and I have just returned from a one week stay at the Miramare and we recommend it highly to all. We are frequent visitors to Italy (once or twice a year for at least the past ten years) and have travelled all over that beautiful country, and it would be fair to say that we are fairly "fussy" about our accomdations. While this property is not inexpensive (we paid about 290 euros per night) in terms of value it is definitely worth the expense.
We had a lovely room with a small balcony facing the sea. There is a fair amount of street noise (the ubiquitous Vespas mainly) with the doors to the balcony open, but with those doors closed the room was perfectly quiet and there was no problem sleeping. The individually adjustable AC kept the room comfortable when the doors were closed, and with the shutters closed one could sleep 'til noon if desired. An in-room safe, terrycloth robes, and hair dryer are nice amenities.
The staff is mostly bilingual and very accomodating. The first concierge (Bruno) is especially helpful! Parking is available in a nearby garage and the staff will park and retrieve your vehicle at a moment's notice. A very nice buffet breakfast is included in the room rate and is served on the outdoor patio when weather permits, and the breakfast selection even included bacon, sausage, and eggs for those used to a larger breakfast, as well as a full complement of fruits and juice, yogurt, cereals, breads, etc.
We returned to the hotel one evening after midnight and were hungry (Hungry in Italy???...it's a long story!) and the bartender in the American bar was quite happy to get two nice sandwiches for us to accompany our drinks. That was at additional cost, of course, but still not something that you would find in many hotels at closing time.
All in all, we were most happy with our stay at the Miramare, and would recommend it most highly. We would certainly return there if our travels take us to Liguria again.
One of the best.
We just returned fron 10 days in Italy. Have travelled throughout Italy many times but never to Santa Margherita L.. The Miramare was a beautifal property, the staff was very nice and helpful(also spoke English). We had a jr. suite that was large with a huge bathroom. The hotel was immaculate. Nicer than many 5 star hotels I've stayed in. Great breakfast. Highly recommended.
Fantastic!!!! Absolutly gorgeous, the best hotel we stayed at in Italy. If you get a chance to stay here, take it!
Best hotel we stayed in, in Italy
This was the perfect ending to our honeymoon. We stayed in some great hotels, but none with a COMFORTABLE king size bed, large bathroom, and 2 sinks! We had a great view of the sea and the pool was very nice. We loved staying in Santa Margherita which we thought was the best spot on the Italian Riviera.
I love this hotel. It's in a fantastic location, opposite the water, with beautiful gardens and a wonderful view across the Italian Riviera. The pool is lovely, but the restaurant is the most memorable. The food was superb and each evening was served with style by restaurant staff. Unfortunately, this hotel is not cheap but its worth it just to experience the food, and to spend some relaxing evenings on the hotel's terrace overlooking the sea. The staff were also very helpful, professional and polite. Its only a short walk into the centre of town, where there are also plenty of nice restaurants. A lovely hotel in a beautiful location. I look forward to staying there again.
Wonderful hotel. The staff here was very friendly and helpful. Make sure to ask for a room with a balcony, our friends got one and we did not. IF the sound of vespas both you ask for a garden room. It was a beautiful spot. We really enjoyed the pool. Prices are expensive here, but better than Portofino!! The bathroom was to die for, I really enjoyed my bath!
High Class, High Price
My wife and I stayed at Grand Hotel Miramare in March 2004. Our room with an ocean view was great and the breakfast buffet was very well done. The location is on the eastern edge of Santa Margherita so you need to do some walking to get around town. It is a one mile walk to catch a local train to the Cinque Terre. There are a couple of small family owned restaurants nearby with terrific Ligurian food. One word of caution: this is a fancy hotel. The staff is helpful but very formal and some of the guests certainly play the role of being on the Italian Riviera.
We have been staying at the Grand Hotel Miramare on and off over the last 25 years, and will do so until we reach old age!Not only is this a beautiful hotel and grounds, the same staff have been there for years and greet you like old friends. The rooms and their views are superb.
People staying here should take advantage of the gourmet food in the splendid restaurant, and the mouthwatering lunchtime buffet by the pool.
Perfect ending to our trip
We visited all the hotels in Santa Margerita, and picked the Miramare.
Everyone was extremely helpful. The saltwater pool was perfect, the location is the best. If you want to relax this is the place to stay.
Beautiful in white
It was such a wonderful surprise to arrive at the Grand Hotel Miramare and to be greeted so warmly. Our room was so gorgeous in white that I had to take pictures of it before we unpacked. You could bounce a dime on the bedspread! And we had a balcony view with trompe l'oile painted all around the exterior windows, loved it. They also have the kindest and most informative of concierges ever in all our extensive travel. It is a perfect location for hiking to the cinque terra close by. perfect perfect perfect.

... bar with a selection of pastries at the door so I went and got Saach and we went back to attempt to master the Italian way of coffee and breakfast. Una Macchiata con latte and one of those was all I could muster. We managed. The coffee was great but I will go without the milk tomorrow, and I don’t think I will have too many more pastries for brekky. The bar had a constant stream of people coming ...
See my Italian is pretty good. I can lead in with a few words, sound kinda local, then they talk back to me in fluent italian.... Then I'm ******. Sorry please excuse my french mum, but that's actually English. I know English and I know no more than a few intro words in italian. But I want to learn more, and what better way to do so than the quiet village of Riomaggiore. I am so glad I chose this village out of the five I could choose from, here goes ...

Her son cooks and the daughter brings out the food and water. I was able to find that great dish I love with pesto, pasta, potatoes, and green beans. It's an interesting mix of amazing flavors. Everything was so fresh. The ladies also ordered some fish which was locally caught that day and equally delicious. We made ...

Seafood dinner, vino and beers followed as we met and hung out with some new friends (an Aussie working in Amsterdam - Jason & his Dutch girlfriend Astrid. I think we will be catching up with these guys again in Holland.

Once back at the campervan we discovered that the umbrella had not really been covering the backpack as everything inside it was soaked. Fortunately we had not brought the video camera into Lucca. Considering that our trip began in December, it's surprising that this was the first time that we ...
