Just spent a long weekend at the Miramar and yes all the positive reviews are true. It is a fabulous facility with impeccable service. Our double room in the Tower was lovely, great view of the beach and the pool and bungalows below. we received nothing but the best service from the front desk staff, concierge and wait staff. BUT, the hotel seemed to have more going on than it could handle. there was a wedding and/or large function over the weekend which not only restricted access to the hotel via it's main entrance; it caused congestion in the bar and patio area so that it was near impossible to find a table or chair. I'm guessing that many guests at these functions were also staying at the hotel because the pool area was packed and after twice attempting to get some pool time into our visit, we just gave up. Most disappointing! To make matters worse, the hotel Restaurant, 'Fig' was closed for bar renovations on Monday morning which meant anyone who wanted breakfast was forced to find seating in the lobby bar or outdoor patio . Both areas became over-run with irate patrons while the desperate wait staff attempted to do their best. After waiting half an hour for our breakfast order, it arrived with an apology from our amazing waiter Mark T. Who informed us that it would be free of charge. So, yes I would recommend this hotel but suggest that when you book, find out if any renovations are happening and if any large events are booked during your stay.
