“Paradise on Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Miramalfi Hotel is very affordable compared to other hotels in Amalfi. Spectacular view from any angle of the hotel. Very relaxing atmosphere. Good breakfast in the dining room facing the sea. My room was clean with a balcony and a it had clean bathroom. Nice pool with beautiful surroundings and steps to go down in the sea. The only problem we had was that Miramalfi Hotel is located about 500 meters from downtown. Even though it is not a great distance this is not an ideal walk for every one. The hotel has a van that brings guests downtown at no charge only at certain time of day but going back to the hotel at night we had to take a cab. This was the only inconvenience. Looking forward to go back next summer.

Room Tip: Make sure to stay in a room with balcony and view facing the sea.

We recently spent one week at the hotel. It has absolutely insane views! It almost feels as if you are in a painting! And laying on the cliffs and using the stairs to swim in the pristine waters is an experience everyone must have!
This was our first time in Amalfi but have visited several other spots in Italy. We were not sure which town on the coast to choose. This is the prefect choice if you want complete relaxation. The hotel is very quiet and there isn't much to do in the town, so this is not a place to visit if you are looking for excitement and noise (except for hearing the plumbing in our room from other people's showers).
The hotel staff is wonderful, Everyone from the front desk employees, to the guys at the pool, to the restaurant staff is so friendly. There must be less than 20 people who work there because you will leave knowing everyone's names.
The reason for the 4 stars is because of the eating situation. Breakfast is delicious and complimentary. The problem is that we are early risers because we wanted to make the most of our days and this led us to eat breakfast when it opened. The dining room didn't open til "1" (in actuality 1:15 or later). This would mean 6 hours without eating. We tried to order from the pool bar 2x, but the food stunk. They only offer sandwiches and the sandwiches were mostly bread and unfilling. It would be great if they added a sandwich that had chicken or some salads. You can go to town for lunch, but who wants to clean up their lounge chair, go to their room change, go to town then come back, change again and scavenge for a chair again (often times it was a fight for the lounge chairs; not enough). And if you eat lunch, the dining room didn't open again til "8" for dinner (really 8:15). And the refrigerators in the room are too small to store any substantial food.
So overall I think this is a great hotel but not excellent.

The views are spectacular, the rooms were bright and comfortable, the food was excellent, and the staff and service can not be beat! What's not to like. My wife and I spent four very relaxing days at the Miramalfi. The pool and swimming area was great and there was always time for a leisurely stroll in town. We had it all!

Whilst this hotel was a little expensive for what you got (room wise) when compared to others in the area it is hard to beat. All rooms have sea view, as they say on their website and are truly amazing. The views from the terrace where breakfast is served is stunning as are the views from the 'lunch time' restaurant. Only criticism was that the air conditioning in our room was very noisy and on talking to other guests this seemed a common problem in some rooms, we did get used to it though!
Service from reception and all the waiters and maids was exceptional and any meals we took here were always of a very high standard. Drinks are reasonably priced for an Italian hotel and compare to what you would pay in Amalfi town.
Be prepared for stairs/steps if staying here and although there are lifts they can get quite busy at peak times. The terracing around the pool and down to the 'beach' (all accessed by steps except there is a lift to the pool level), is brilliant with lots of sun beds, however, despite the rules posted about not leaving your towel etc whilst you whizz off on a trip or go for lunch, this is ignored by the ignorant amongst us and not enforced by the lifeguards! If you want the sun for most of the day, head for the furthest right hand side of all the terraces as you face the sea!
The walk into town isn't as bad as some people make out and it takes about 10 minutes there and a little longer back as it's uphill with quite a few steps. There is a hotel shuttle service but it doesn't run very often.
The boat trips arranged by the hotel were brilliant and we had great fun.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel on it's proximity to Amalfi town, it's service and the stunning views.

Worst value for money ever. Very hard to find staff speaking anything else than Italian.
We booked a junior suite as we have two children. We ended up in a standard room with a canape / bed for the kids, useless to say that there were no space in the room. Air conditionning was very noisy and prevented us from spleeping during 3 days. I mentionned it to the staff and I wanted to have a discussion with the manager..... impossible to meet with him as he was never there. Staff not welcoming and not service driven. Anything but a 4 stars hotel

....... especially in the hotel's restaurants. Giovanni, Gabrielle and the rest of the staff elevated our stay with old world charm whether dining in La Grande Carte (the main restaurant on the top floor with 3 walls of floor-to-ceiling glass, an outdoor veranda and stunning sea views) or Le Onde (an open-air restaurant perched on a lower floor terrace). The romantic rooftop bar (open in the summer months) offers spectacular panoramic views of Amalfi and occasionally, live music. The hotel is far enough away from the hordes of tourists crowding the downtown area yet close enough to access town on foot or by using the hotel's convenient shuttle. A salt water pool is located among multiple lower level sunning terraces some of which provide direct and private access to the Mediterranean. The superior and standard bedrooms and bathrooms our family rented were clean, spacious and had beautiful hand painted ceramic tile floors. Several guests we met during our stay were repeat visitors and we hope to join that club on our next trip back to this beautiful area.

That hotel has a spectacular view over the amalfi coast and the sea. All the hotel rooms are sea view. And our balcony had some overwhelming scenery. The receptionist was very warm and welcoming. Upon our arrival we hit the pool and the sea. Soooo amazing. The lift is a bit slow though and scary to me. The hotel also is a bit far from the central, where all the buzz is and where the amazing church of Saint Andrea is located. The hotel do grant u some free shuttle bus to the center but they are not as frequent as needed. From 10 until 4:30 no transfers are available. And after 7:30 u have to go walking of course. We suggest the hotel to make more frequent shuttles, like once every hour. The breakfast is a bit normal and refill is slow, but the waiters are helpful. The worst of our experience in the hotel was the clear noise from other rooms. the walls are so thin that what you hear you think the person is with u in the room. for example we could hear the hairdryer for almost one hour while my husband and i were trying to get a nap. It is very annoying and where could we complain!. The price is very high also for such simple rooms and few amenities. But my husband and I were justifying that maybe it's because of the high season. Anyway the hotel is good to try.
