Historical Traveler Reviews Miramalfi Hotel
You won't regret it
Have just come home from a magical stay at Miramalfi October 2004. The hotel location and panoramic views are TO DIE FOR. If you can fault this hotel, you are too fussy. We had meals in the fabulous glass walled restaurant listening to the 3 Tenors. Atmosphere plus! You get breakfast and a 4 course supurb dinner included in the rate per night. It is exceptional value. The wait staff were all very accomodating and went out of their way to look after us. The pool is just gorgeous carved into the cliffs and the ocean diving platform is equally impressive. Amalfi is the best location on the coast and the town has the best essence of Italy. Try the local cheeses too - Bellissimo! Don't stay at Positano - catch the ferry and day trip. You'll love every bit of Amalfi! It's amazing.
We spent a wonderful week at the Miramalfi in July this year. Could not fault the hotel - perfect location and we particularly enjoyed the food! The staff were wonderful, especially in the restaurant and bar. So friendly, so welcoming and we'll definitely be back!
Let me premise this by saying that I absolutely agonized over choosing this hotel. I had no idea what town to stay in and then what hotel!?! I was very torn between staying in Amalfi or Positano, I even debated the little towns in between but decided against because they are not really towns and don't have a variety of restaurants, shops, etc. I am very satisfied with having stayed here.
We took a bus from Salerno going, and a ferry back (definitely advise taking the ferry, much faster, more comfortable and only 2 blocks from station in Salerno). Take a cab when you reach Amalfi, we hoofed it with the bags and it was too much. When we got to the hotel I was scared, the entrance is a little unexpected you have to go down from the street into the lobby, but the view right off the bat...the hotel itself is 3 stars but the view and beach are 6 stars and that says it all.
There is no satellite cable, even though they advertise it, the rooms are large by European standards, the double beds are litterally 2 twins pushed up against each other. The decorating leaves a little to be desired. And still I fully recommend it. This hotel has a better view than the Santa Catarina (which has the same kind of beach). The terrace for dining is beautiful. Breakfast is good, they run out of things but all you have to do is ask and they will bring it out for you. Tony the maitre d'it is excellent. There is a very good and reasonable restaurant across the street Il Preferiti and a bar with internet access.
Amalfi is a quaint town with no real sand beach, instead the "beaches" are carved into the cliffs with the most phenomenal view. UNBELIEVABLE!!! You should stay here for that reason alone.
The only thing I really wished was that this hotel had more water toys, like kayaks and paddle boats, etc. The Santa Catarina and the Bussola (had small sand beach) had those and I was a little jealous, however our beach and our view beat them both by far!!!
So back to Amalfi and/or Positano. Positano is supposed to have a beautiful beach and be a really cool place to stay. We took a day trip on scooters (must do for unbelievable views everywhere you look) and it was teeming with tourists everywhere and the beautiful beach... is rocks not sand. However, the shops for linen were great!
Now, since having seen the coast I can say that if you want sandy beaches go to Marini di Conca, Ravella or Maiori. If you want a crowd go to Positano (oh and stay at Il Pallazzo de Murat, it looked BEAUTIFUL much nicer than Il Sireneuse). If you want the best view and a more local feeling stay in Amalfi.
If you want the best view, decent hotel, great beach stay at Miramalfi. If you want to splurge stay at the Santa Catarina, it is a much nicer hotel.
Have a wonderful trip!!! It is so beautiful there.
Perfect location, professional and friendly staff, exceptional value.
My husband and I spent 2 nights in this hotel in our latest vacation, mostly based on the reviews i saw from this web site. The view and breakfast were good, however the room didn't meet our expectations. We got a superior room, with jacuzzi!, but know the jacuzzi you would hope for.... decor was boring and room lacked of little details such as conditioner or body lotion, details you can expect from a hotel that charged me 120 Euros per person! and is about 1 1/2 mile from town. I guess I got a little spoiled after spending couple of nights at The Vesuvio (best hotel in Naples) La Residenza (Capri), Park Hotel Miramar (Ischia) or Albergo Miramara (Positano)were I paid less, got beautiful rooms and all them with ammenities ranging from sleepers and vanity kits to free excursion boat. Miramalfi is more of a 3 star hotel.
Loved the Miramalfi
Stayed at the Miramalfi at the end of May and it certainly contributed to a wonderful week in Amalfi -The rooms were immaculate - as if they had just been freshly decorated and the decor was simple and charming. The views from the balcony were stunning and waking up to the waves crashing on the rocks below was beautiful. The staff were very efficient and friendly and the food in the restaurant was very good (and very filling!). Breakfast on the terrace, looking out onto Amalfi bay was certainly a special experience. Another high point is the swimming pool, carved into the rock. There are lots of different secluded levels containing sun loungers, all looking out to a view of the bay and gradually descending to diving off points into the clear, green sea water. It takes about 10 minutes to walk into the centre of Amalfi. I would definately recommend a stay at the Miramalfi to anyone that is looking for a relaxing and special holiday.
Exceeded our expectations!
My husband and I and my brother and his wife stayed at the Miramalfi off-season for two nightsduring late March, 2003. We had a marvelous time on the Amalfi Coast and loved Hotel Miramalfi!Our rooms were spacious, immaculate, had modern tiled bathrooms and the views from ourprivate balconies were awesome. We appreciated the convenient parking and also the excellent complementary breakfasts. The staff was veryhelpful and I especially want to thank Mr. Manciero,who we never met, for his prompt replies to our E-mail inquiries. I would like to add that we are senior citizens and highly recommend this hotel for our age group. The hotel's website is miramalfi
Great views, great food, great service.
Fantastic views - especially at night with a full moon. My wife and I are in our late 20s and loved this place. Its a bit less extravagant than the Santa Caterina (stayed there last year), but for the traveler who wants a great room at a great price, with the same views and luxury you would expect from a four star, this is the place. The formality was less than that of the Caterina as well, so if you visit for the fun of it, and not the glitz, you'll feel right at home. My suggestion, if you plan to visit Italy more than once, would be to stay here when your young, stay at the Santa Caterina in your 30's - 80's.

There’s a keyboard player who plays the melody and an “orchestra director” who makes dramatic gestures telling people when it’s their turn to bang away.

He has perfected the clasping of hands behind his back and walking ever so slowly like every older Italian man in every Italian village, town or city.

My one big question though and maybe I need to direct ...
