    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Miramare Santa Margherita Ligure

    A Wonderful Choice!

    from

    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.

    from

    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!!!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Stunning

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Glorious Riviera

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

Treating me much like a third suitcase, I was also deposited gracelessly through the door onto the carriage. But on we were. Except we were on the wrong carriage. Once again, for mysteries reasons, the two first class carriages on Italian trains move between the back and front of the train. So, one train ...

Just near the end of the walk, there was an Italian man offering fresh lemon juice, lemoncello or cold wine. Whatever we wanted. It was delightful and very Italian. He told us, he wouldn’t be there selling this for long today as ...

Being a responsible person who put two and two together and could also smell coffee I decided to stay and keep company with my new friends. Very concerned for Steve's life we went directly to a beautiful little cafe bar surrounded with little pots of flowers and gift shops. We chatted about America and exchanged addresses. It was delightful. Walking to the train station ...

    On our last evening, I tried spaghetti con vongole (with clams), Nathalie enjoyed a delicious seafood plate that had the biggest prawns we had seen (and apparently the tastiest). Mark and Heath both went for different forms of pizza - enjoying the last of our Italian food for a while before we made the leap (or long ferry cruise) to ...

The people here over hundreds of years have created through backbreaking work, a series of levels of terraces where they grow the food they need and some of italy's best olive oil, lemons and basil. Along with their fair share of the tastiest tomatoes this along with the local fishing is the basis for ...
