My husband and I visited Positano for the first time in Sept. 2013 as our last stop on a week and a half trip to Italy. I heard wonderful things about Positano and knew we'd need a relaxing last stop after visiting the busier cities. I did a TON of research on hotels before deciding on Miramare. There are so many good options and honestly I had a very difficult time making a decision. The one thing I kept hearing was that the views are amazing and it's important to get a view from your room. What I loved about miramare is that every room has a view and you don't have to pay more to get it! We couldn't afford a good view at some of the more pricey hotels so I decided on this one. Let me say, we were not disappointed! This place has to have the best view in the city!! I could not believe how amazing the view was from our very large balcony! It was so nice sitting on the balcony in the morning and evening and just watching the sunset while drinking a glass of wine!! The hotel is positioned in the perfect spot, so the view is not obstructed by anything else (this is the case for several hotels).
Everyone mention Rosita and I wasn't sure what to expect and she was better than I even imagined! It was like being welcomed from an old friend! I felt so comfortable during our two night stay and she was so passionate about her hotel and making sure we enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was by far the best we had in Italy and they had fresh fruits, eggs, and lots of different breads/meats.
The room was small but nice overall. The balcony was actually bigger than the room! I liked that we had a refrig in the room.
The only negative is that the hotel doesn't have a pool. Since the beach is so pebbly, I would have liked to have a pool. we did meet a couple staying at Palazzo Murat (sister hotel) and got to spend time at their pool though.
overall great experience and highly recommend!!
P.S. you must take the FREE boat tour that the hotel offers! What a great deal for a really nice trip.
