“Great views, but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

First of all, hotels in South of Italy have to be treated with special care...

Miramalfi seamed to us by far hotel with the best cross between location, beach and price out of all hotels in Amalfi.

PROS: location, views, small but nice beach. Nice breakfast, served by excellent stuff, on amazing terrace

CONS:
First of all - beach closes at 18h. Not just pool, also the beach. Which is weird and very inconvenient, especially when you come home in the evening from Pompei trip. I believe I am not the only one urging the management to review this rule.

Rooms - well, they are old. Bathrooms are old and they need maintenance. And getting to them - the elevators are even older...

Wi Fi - really? Not just not free, but expensive. Even third world hotels offer wi-fi for free or at least with reasonable prices. If you are just checking the emails - do it with data service on your phone.

Management issues - well, you are in Italy.

It seams here that I listed more cons then pros. Well, I still maintain that this is the best option to stay in Amalfi, but if they want to claim 4 stars and show 4 points of excellence from TripAdvisor, they will have to... try harder, invest more...

We stay here a week great views but could be a lot better .our first room the bath shower leaked all over the floor and water was every where , we rang reception they brought towels but we had to clean it all up . Room was nothing like the photos . They next day they moved us still not happy with room but could not move us to the style of room we book . The view is great and pool is lovely . Breakfast nice , expensive for dinner . It was not cheap to stay and is only a 21/2 str hotel . The property needs a good up date especially the rooms . They say that rooms have a spar this is not true , they have a shower with a panel down the side that shoots out water , this is suppose to be spa no enjoyed when water squirting in face . They are very good with people with disabilities .

Room Tip: Ask for the room in here Boucher . Do not o summer very expensive

My husband and I stayed at Miramalfi for 2 nights. We had just come from a stunning hotel in Annacapri and maybe that affected our view of this hotel.

The good: Service and food at the restaurant at dinner time was above average! The patio/balcony of our room was spacious. The views of Amalfi were spectacular. Service was great! The folks at the main desk were extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast buffet was limited but good.

The bad: The room, though spacious, is ugly and dated. The pool chairs are a joke. Aside from being the most uncomfortable chairs ever, you cannot be next to someone...they are arranged (as there is not enough room) toe to head next to each other. The pool was not inviting at all.

Overall, the pictures on-line sold us and set our expectations high; but in person, it failed to deliver.

We visited the Amalfi coast and stayed at the Miramalfi Hotel. Outstanding location and service! We had an excellent stay. Food and service was very good. The whole place is cut and built into a cliff that plunges to the sea. The salt water pool was an elevator ride down the cliff side and had a full view of the town of Amalfi as did all the rooms. Climb down into the sea or dive off various elevations cut into the rocks. Water was warm and wonderful. Food at the Miramalfi was very good and the view from the three locations was spectacular. The village of Amalfi was lovely and well worth the trip.

My husband and I got married here and I must say that the staff went out of their way to make our day memorable. We live in London so the whole team (special shout out to Raffaela, Francesca, and Gabriele) were amazing and organised all of our requirements for the wedding without any hesitation. On the day, each and every member of staff chipped in to make our day perfect.
We stayed there for 3 nights and on the day of our wedding, I even got a smiley-faced cappuccino and my husband got breakfast in bed just so that we had a great start to our day.
The rooms are spacious, clean and have the most amazing views of Amalfi. They also have the perfect balance to bring the original elements of Amalfi to life.
The food was second to none! We had the pleasure of dining in both restaurants and their breakfast spread appeals to both continental and local preferences.
We also had the honeymoon suite on the day of our wedding night which by far has the best view of the coast! Not to mention one killer jacuzzi.
We are so happy we chose Miramalfi as our wedding venue and choice of stay in Amalfi and like to thank the wonderful team that went above and beyond their roles to make our day the best day ever... We can't wait to come back and celebrate our Anniversary with you!

Hotel Miramalfi is located on an amazing property, with direct water access, great dining facility, and a nice (salt water) pool. However, I was thoroughly disappointed with the room furnishings, which desperately need updated. The mattress was very uncomfortable (hard) for my taste, and I found it so odd that one of the pillows on our bed was extremely heavy. Our bathroom, while relatively spacious, had a garden tub with jets with an adjustable shower head, but there was no enclosure or shower curtain around the tub, which caused a lot of water to get onto the bathroom floor. We found the staff to be very friendly, and we very much enjoyed all of our dining experiences (two breakfasts, one sit-down lunch, one lunch from the snack bar, and one formal dinner) and felt that the food was great quality and reasonably priced. We were able to borrow snorkeling masks from the snack bar, which we appreciated, and the front desk also arranged a full-day boat trip to Capri for us. I was a little disappointed with the arrangements, however, as I emailed a month before our arrival in order to secure a reservation for the boat trip and was told that it would need to wait until we arrived. When we arrived, the larger of the two boats (which was what we wanted to take) was already full and we had to take the smaller (rubber) boat. I did not understand why this arrangement could not be finalized before we arrived.

It was such an experience that we cannot wait to go there again. The hotel facilities, although build on the cliff of the mountain, are exquisite. But what was indeed to remember was the staff, their hospitality beats any other place we've been, all around Europe, and we've been almost everywhere. Especially the restaurant, starting from the waiters (mainly Tonino but also the others) and ending with the chef. Because how much you can appreciate a perfectly cooked meal served by a numb waiter. On Miramalfi, on the other hand, the atmosphere created by the waiters on top of the delicious napoletano specialties served all day are relly making a trip to remember.
