Grand Hotel Miramare
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 2, 2013

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Miramar for 3 nights and found the hotel to be excellent in every aspect. On arrival, we were upgraded to a corner suite with a wonderful view out over the sea. The room was very large, comfortable, with a lovely sitting area where we could read while occasionally looking out at the view. The gardens are lovely, although it was a little early in the season for most of the flowers. The staff was extremely helpful. They helped us organize a day trip to Portofino, there by local bus, return by boat. For the following day they gave us help for our day trip to Le Cinque Terre by train. Breakfast was excellent. The location is very good, because you can just leave the car and walk to explore Santa Margherita. Also there is a wide choice of restaurants within easy walking distance. We did not eat in the hotel, except for breakfast, but I got the feeling that it was mainly groups at dinner. Overall, a wonderful experience. In high season this hotel would be out of our price range, but in early April, the cost when booked directly with the hotel was very reasonable. My advice, if you are in the area out of season, is to splurge and have an unforgettable experience.

This hotel sits right on the Mediterranean, on the road to Portofino. Service is excellent with wonderful, dedicated staff. Rooms are up-to-date and very well mainted. The village of Santa Margherita, is an easy walk, as is the harbor and the local fish market. Far better place to stay than Portofino. Less "touristy." Hotel staff is what makes this property extra special

This is a great hotel in every way. First it's location near the harbor of Santa Margherita Ligure. and next to the sea. We had a room with park view, but this was not a turn down we looked out on a neat and well attained garden and views of the town. Friendly and helpful staff great breakfast with fresh orange juice and great coffee. The room had everything it needed to relax, We took a swim in the large outdoor pool (unheated) with a dept of 3,9 meter great to take a dive. In the evening don't forget to drink a delicious cocktail at the bar. Love this hotel and will certainly come back!!!! I can recommend it to everyone.

We stumbled upon this hotel and what a find. Beautiful rooms, truly 5 star service and amenities, and then there is the view. Whether you overlook the sea or the gardens, it is beautiful. We were there in the early fall so it was quiet and the price was slightly reduced.

extremely helpful, courteous and knowledgeable staff throughout. Excellent rooms and food with a wonderful park setting and overlooking the sea. There is nothing the staff won't do to make your stay as comnfortable and memorable as possible. Not cheap, but well worth every penny

Room Tip: my personal preference would be to overlook the garden but the sea view is wonderful too

Fantastic friendly staff.
Upon arrival the manager personally took us to our rooms to ensure our comfort and then showed us other rooms and gave a free upgrade!!.I realize it was a quiet time of year ,however it was a lovely gesture and we were extremely happy with this offer!This was typical of the staffs wonderul attention and willingness to help.
The breakfast was good.
Hotel was clean.
The dinner excellent with both waiters being fastidiously attentive and wonderful to deal with.
Hotel is in great location with panoramic views.
If you are driving,there is a little carpark the hotel owns directly across the road on the water side which makes it easy and convenient to unload in.
