No a honeymoon hotel, but if you want to relax a couple days in the East of Sicily and explora Taormina and the Etna then Miramaro is a good place to stay. Rooms are nice, the reception is friendly and the food is good. It takes a little walk downhill to the swimming pool but it's worth.

The first good thing to point out about the Miramare is that it IS located in Taormina. While doing our research we found several hotels that claimed to be in Taormina whereas they were located in the tiniest village underneath. What is the point? Well, you need to get the funiculare to go up and down and you miss the... More

Great location, clean good rooms, great views,friendly service and overall left a very good impression. Downside (for me) was the atmosphere. Not bad but just very quiet and almost genteel. As in many 'Grand' hotels in Italy there was an air of faded elegance in the restaurants nod communal areas. There was no bar as such but available service on... More

We booked this hotel to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The staff were very friendly and patient at our attenpt to speak italian! We loved our room which over looked the pool and a spectatular view of the sea. On a clear day you could see the mountains and coast of Calabria. The pool area was so relaxing and each... More

Just returned from a holiday at the Grand Hotel Miramare and feel it's not up to the 4* it has been awarded. Apparently this is the last week this season as they plan to carry out refurbishment works, mainly to the furnishings and bathrooms, which are both quite dated and tatty. The position is fantastic and the staff are helpful... More

My husband and I booked a junior suite for a week and when we arrived were given a quite large and dark room with a balcony and an obscured view. We had a marvelous view of the beautifully maintained, terraced garden and the stairs down to the pool; however, everyone using the stairs has a view of the room unless... More

We had a great holiday in taormina and the hotel was in a fantastic position with great views We had a lovely terrace on our bedroom with a view over to isobella island.The hotel was very elegant but I felt that it needed some work done on the bathrooms to make it 4 star and maybe a better television.

Wonderful choice of hotels in Taormina. My wedding planner Liz Gaan recommended this and many of my family stayed for 4 nights in this hotel. The rooms are clean and spacious and the view is beautiful. The staff including Claudia were wonderful.

We had a most enjoyable week at this hotel. Our bedrooms were spacious, the bathrooms good and we had a wonderful view looking out at the sea. We thought the decor could be improved! The reception staff were friendly and helpful. We only had dinner in the hotel twice - the food was good but not imaginative and the dining... More

We stayed at this hotel some 10 years ago and decided to return. Glad we did - at first we were concerned when several lights were not working in our room and some repair work was needed in our bathroom, but these issues were quickly sorted out. This lovely hotel is only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Taormina.... More
