Stayed for 7 nights in August. Slightly dated rooms but views from balcony more than made up for this. Pool bar had almost every drink you'd wish for and the pizza was the best we had. Location is ideal for seeing Taormina on foot. If we return to Taormina we will stay here again.

Whilst the roo was a bit tired, it was very comfortable for our ten day stay and the view was to die for...unbeatable. The only downside was that it didn't get the afternoon sun, but there were lovely terraces to sit on and a garden. The staff were excellent and very obliging and friendly. As for the restaurant, we ended... More

Overall this is a very good hotel high above the sea with panoramic sea views, reached after negotiating many hairpin bends. My only disappointment was the room I was given. There was only one small lift which took me down four floors where I had to walk a long corridor before descending four flights of marble stairs to a tiny... More

I recommend it if you are not picky about the breakfast and if you don't mind stair climbing! They tried to be helpful. The pool was great surrounded by trees and flowersand I loved the view of my room. Pizza was great but they closed right at 2 and even it was just an order for a child and simple... More

This is a graceful hotel with an impressive dining room and helpful staff. Our room, 916, had beautiful views across the sea from high up. It was a comfortable room with a minibar and good, free WiFi. Breakfast is excellent and our evening meal was wonderful. We would love to return.

I'd give this 4.5 stars - it's a lovely, well-run hotel set in beautiful gardens and has absolutely wonderful sea views. The Miramare is set on a quiet road, about 10 minutes walk from the main town centre of Taormina, and has a beautiful cliff-top location with amazing panoramic views and beautiful well-maintained gardens. Bedrooms are of a good size,... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at this hotel. I understand that this is one of the oldest hotels in the resort and it still has the charm of an old hotel. Yes , the pool is a long climb down from the hotel (and of course a long climb back), but given that it is built on the edge... More

I really like this hotel, needs tweeting here and there but certainly,overall,a great choice. This hotel is set high up on the cliff face so views are exceptional, particularly if you have a balcony, (pay the extra it is worth it) I was very impressed by the cleaning regime, they wait until you have handed your key in then come...

The hotel is located an easy 10-15 minute walk from the town center and the views from the Sea facing rooms are stunning, but that is the extent of my enthusiasm for this hotel. Aside from the somewhat dated room decor and furnishings, there is little wrong with the 'fabric' of the building, public areas are clean and smart and... More
