The Grand Hotel Miramare is like something out of a movie. It's stately and lovely with amazing views, great staff and in a good location. I had an ocean view room for my first night which was just spectacular and while I had to move rooms to the back of the hotel during my stay, the room was still fabulous,... More

We had never been to the Italian Med and found this hotel through Fodors. We have never gone wrong with a Fodors Choice hotel or restaurant btw.

This hotel overlooks the sea and is an elegant hotel. My wife felt like a princess staying here. Breakfast was great - eggs, bacon and all the usual stuff in a buffet. The lounge/bar area was very nice and we were able to buy a reasonable Vermintino which was excellent . The grounds were beautiful. You will not be disappointed.

We stayed three nights at the Hotel Miramare, and wish we’d stayed several more. It was the most relaxing, beautiful place in our two week vacation in northern Italy. We traveled by train and took a cab from the station the short distance to the hotel - perhaps 1.5 miles, past the town of Santa Margherita Ligure to the hotel.... More

The hotel has a very nice, large swimming pool and pretty gardens. It is across the street from a beach which was quite crowded but still enjoyable. Santa Margherita is located between the Cinque Terre and Portofino. We spent a nice few days exploring that part of Liguria.

This hotel has true Italian style. Building, garden and pool are all very classy and the service is outstanding with great attention to detail. Probably the best breakfast I have had in a large hotel. The hotel is directly located on the waterfront within easy walking distance to restaurants and the beautiful promenade.
