I just think this is the most marvellous, old world hotel! I had a wonderful stay at the end of October last year and have been meaning to write a review. It rained the whole time, it was the end of the season, the place was empty, but still, I loved it so much! Grazie!

I loved this grand hotel that was exceptional in every way. The location is prime - across from the pebble beach (the concessions at the beach are not owned by the hotel but some loungers are free for hotel guests, based on availability), 3 mins walk to some restaurants and about 10 mins to the center of town, and a...

Family trip with adult children and friends. Took the train from Florence to SML in late June 2014 and stayed at Grand Hotel Miramare. It was our first trip to the "Italian Riviera." It was a good rest stop at the end of week one in Italy. Took a pre-booked taxi from the train station to hotel. We received a... More

Evertything works. From the arrival, the initiative of the porters to park your car, deliver your luggage, and at departure returning your car, convertible open as it was on arrival .... The concierge with his politeness and educated gentle diplomatic way was more than helpful recommending and advising where to go, all staff, be at the reception, arrival hall, restaurant,... More

The property looks beautiful; the setting is charming; the beach right across the road; tranquil gardens are very inviting; Portofino a pleasant boat ride away; and Cinque Terre easily accessible. The concierge was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. However, the reception desk was so efficient that they came across as being rude. I spent 30 minutes trying to attract a... More

The Junior Suite was spacious and so very comfortable. We had twin beds, ocean views, and a balcony. The breakfast included is excellent. Very fresh. Concierge and front desk were so helpful and professional. They never made you feel like you were imposing on them. Walking distance to town and try La Paranza family restaurant which is very near hotel... More

This was my 6th stay at this hotel and it's still my favourite place in the world. The hotel is a beautiful old style building set in gorgeous gardens with a wonderful view of the sea. It's so relaxing sitting on the terrace or by the pool and looking out over the Mediterranean. The rooms are tastefully decorated and kept... More

I have just returned from my third stay at this hotel and look forward to returning many more times. The hotel is beautifully traditional with lots of charm but with all the modern comfort standards expected of one of the best hotels. It is in a wonderful location close to the town of Santa Margherita and also from here it... More
