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.
