        This was our second trip.How different!

        The pool was roped off.The Sunbathing area and loungers were filthy,and after 200steps Down to the pool the Bar and Snack area was closed.The Air con in our room was not operating and the only shower was hand held.The place was almost empty.

        The view is beautiful. Car parking available.

        Paper thin walls - could hear everything from adjacent rooms and corridor. Beds like concrete. Bathroom dated - flushing mechanism extremely loud. Claim to have bar which consists of some glasses on a table by the dining room - never saw it manned...

        The hotel has a lovely view over the coast, it is convenient for walking into the centre of town, staff were friendly and the buffet breakfast was good.

        The bathrooms need updating and strangely the plastic thermos jugs in which coffee was served at breakfast all had badly damaged spouts (to the point of being unhygienic). When I took this up with the receptionist on departure, I was told that there were many things that needed replacing, i.e. it wasn't considered to be particularly important. Wifi internet service was only available in the ground floor lobby.

        You can park in the hotel, and the swimming pool is nice

        The room needs to be refurbished urgently: specially the wc (that's not a 4 star hotel!) When trying to sleep, there are annoying noises from other guests, people in the corridor, wc, etc. We were hosted in a room without seeing the sea but a dark ground floor room to the service area. Either if you want to go to the centre or to the beach you need to walk up the hill for 700 km

        It was really close to the bus terminal, namely on the other side of the street. So once getting of the bus you could easily arrive to the hotel by walking with all the baggage we had. The Pool was just great surrounded by all the floors and trees on the mountain, though we used it only once since the sea was to prefere for us. We got a sweet even if we had booked a standard room because they were out of rooms so that was very good for us because we got a much bigger room with a great view (all the rooms have a great sea view by the way). the staff were very kindly and helpful. The breakfast was good as well. the walking distance to the city center was about 5-10 min, very close.

        not really.

        The hotel had a very luxurious feel and look. We were updated to a beautiful room with a balcony with no extra charge. The location of the the hotel is excellent, oppisite the interbus for all transfers and excusions and very close to all shops and attractions. The buffet breakfast was wonderful and situated with fantastic views. The only downside was the greeting gentleman at the reception who was not particulary friendly and helpful.

        It's old-style feel with potted palms. Quiet and convenient location with spectacular views. Helpful staff. Upgrades of rooms was much appreciated, with french windows opening out on to main terrace. Rooms were well appointed, subject to one comment below.

        The shower "cubicle" in one room was too small and surrounded on 3 sides by a plastic curtain, which sticks to the body while showering. Curtain is also too short. The shower in the second room was fine, as it was larger and had rigid plastic walls and door.

      • Couple
        8.8

        The hotel is in a perfect location directly across from the bus station which is convenient for the airport transfer and for any day-trips but it is still only a few minutes walk from the main centre. Although there are a large number of steps to the pool, it is worth the effort as the pool is very quiet with lots of sundbeds and umbrellas and the pool attendant is very attentive. The pool side cafe serves a nice lunch. The communal areas are all very pleasant.

        The bedrooms need some updating in facilities for example the hairdryer is very poor and the safe is very small and old fashioned as you needed a key whereas most hotels now have the keypad facility. These are not major complaints but an inconvenience.

        The Miramare has a great location and has the most beautiful views. Its charm is that its original grandness is slightly jaded but overall it offers great value and a feel of real sicily. We had a delightful stay and would recommend the hotel.

        Sound proofing and quieter plumbing.

        Wonderful views from the terrace and swimming pool, convenient location a couple of minutes' walk from bus station and about 10 mins to centre of Taormina. Very pleasant staff.

        Lovely old Hotel right beside bus station and funuvia so handy for trips.Large balcony with amazing views.Peaceful, pretty pool area.Due to a sudden death our friends had to cancel last minute and staff were very understanding

        Knew about the steps to pool but it did put you off going for a quick dip.The balcony area is not very private if the next room is occupied.No bath but the shower was good

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        The staff at reception were at best monosyllabic and at worst very rude. The staff in the breakfast room, however, were very kind and helpful, even when often late for breakfast. The room was clean and large, with a small balcony and stunning view but for the price the bathroom was dated, tatty and not really in line with the standard of the rest of the hotel. The actually water system seriously needs sorting out as the entire hotel must have been woken up every time you flush the loo. The worst thing, though, was the completely unfriendly and rude reception staff who left me feeling quite depressed at the end of the holiday.

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        The hotel was in a great location just a 15 minute walk away from the main town, and just 5 min away from the cable car which takes you down towards the beach. The hotel had a nice swimming pool, but it was a bit of a walk down lots of steps. The views from the back of the hotel are beautiful and we were lucky enough to be upgraded upon arrival, so we had a view right across the bay with a balcony. We stayed at the hotel with 2 other couples for a friends wedding..... There was plenty of space around the pool for the 6 of us. The food by the pool is satisfactory..... By day 4 we were getting a little bored of it. The staff were great and really friendly.

        The hotel staff went out of their way to be so helpful..and I will stay there again for sure. The only thing I did not like were the bathroom showers that were a bit flimsy. Other than that the location was perfect.

      • Couple
        7.0

        The swimming pool attached to the hotel was excellent as was the views from the balcony. The room was immaculate clean and the hotel was in an excellent location close to the bus station and close to the town centre without being in the middle of town. The breakfast provided was also very nice.

        We were a couple but were given a room with 2 single beds and then when we complained the hotel simply joined them together. Also the staff were not overly friendly to the visitors, which is unusual for Sicily.
