We stayed for a couple of nights following four nights at the Yaktsa sister hotel up the road. The Miramar is a lovely hotel and larger with more communal areas and a better atmosphere. It is a better choice for families and couples looking for more to do. There is a lovely pool area, and place for sunbathing with steps into the sea and better dining and bar facilities. However, it is busier and you have to book your sunbed in advance unless you're happy to pay for the four poster beds or the VIP areas. For couples looking for a quieter stay, opt for the Yaktsa.
We ended up with the most basic room, which faced the road and hill. It was lovely inside with good quality furnishings, but we missed our balcony and sea view following our stay at the Yaktsa. However, the additional facilities at the hotel and slightly cheaper drink prices made our stay more enjoyable overall.
We dined at the a la carte restaurant and enjoyed our meal of lamb and risotto. Again, the prices were too high at €14 for a small strawberry tart and had they been more reasonable, we'd probably opted for the full three courses!
Car parking is charged at €10 per day. We did not know this until we checked out. Fine if your have a sports car, but it turned out to be more expensive to park our hire car than it did to rent it each day! There was no parking charge at the Yaktsa.
Both hotels are lovely and good choices if your staying on the French Riviera, however be aware that no breakfasts are included in the room rates, there are no in-room tea and coffee facilities and complimentary water is only provided on the first night. Standard sun beds are included but you have to pre-book. Prices are higher than most luxury 5 star hotels we've stayed in.
