The Hotel was perfectly situated and gave fantastic views over the bay and beyond. The hotel staff were always friendly and seemed to work extremely hard. There was a lot of steps down to the pool but it was a pleasant walk. The pool staff always greeted you with towels and a smile. The room had a great view and... More

Our room was great a junior suite for my husband and I and 2 kids - ages 8 and 9. The amenities were great, great shower, the view amazing and the terrace! A beautiful room for sure. The walk to the pool was fun and the pool was really nice. The staff was very nice, but maybe not the best... More

Many reviews said this already, I can just add my 2p worth - this hotel clearly was 4* some (long?) ago, but it is not in need of a good re-modernisation, and that's because their rate are very much 4*. That said, it did the job (almost) perfectly for us - we were in our room just to sleep, have... More

My husband and I have just returned from a great holiday at the Grand hotel Miramare. Having read some of the more recent reviews I have to say that I was a little concerned about my choice of accommodation .I really shouldn't have worried. Firstly, it is important to remember that this hotel was built in the 1920s as a... More

Like many reviewers have said of this hotel it's 4* rating may at one time been deserved but it definitely is not any more. It has all the pretensions of 4* but just doesn't deliver. The positives are its location which is great - near enough to town for a pleasant walk and far enough away to be peaceful. Also... More

We booked on line and were bowled over by the photographs of this hotel online. Sadly it is very tired, the rooms were very basic scruffy bathrooms, broken chairs on the balcony as we paid extra for a large balcony room with a view. Despite having reported the broken chairs on arrival, still a week later nothing done! The lift... More

This hotel has a good location, on a quiet road (although our room was at the back), and only 10 mins walk to the main part of town, or 5 mins to the cable car which led down to the beach. The staff were helpful and a little on the formal side. The pool area was tranquil (no kids while... More

Sadly the once great hotel is now really tired. Great location and lovely views, however the rooms are 1 star standard. Our room had a really disgusting and tatty bathroom. Not what you expect or are paying for. Sad to say this hotel has really been let go. I would try elsewhere.
