First, forgive the tardiness of this review sometimes life gets in the way.
Our trip was in late October 2011. We chose this hotel based on the great reviews. I spoke with Rosita who speaks very good english. She was very helpful, kind and friendly over the phone, which put my mind at ease immediately. I reserved 3 months in advance and in between that time we had several e-mails concerning my needs for our upcoming trip. She arranged for everything we wanted. She provided a great car service from Positano to come pick us up from Rome, when we arrived she was there to greet you in open arms, her smile is infectious. We felt like we've known each other for some time. She made us feel so welcomed, the staff was wonderful and friendly, Nicola was just as awesome he's funny and kind always ready to attend to your needs.
This was our 1st trip to Italy and we made Miamare our home base for one week. Rosita arranged for all our needs to sight see in the area. We spent a day in Capri, we spent a day in Amalfi, then to Ravello, all amazing. Rosita arranged for most of our dinner reservations she gave very good suggestions.
The hotel is beautiful nestled in the rocky hills of this vertical city, the views from your room are one word 'breathtaking'. Always clean and kept, beautiful decor, charming. Our breakfast was in the dining hall (that had breathtaking views) it was delicious, the staff was very attentive to any of your needs.
I can't leave out the steps (as I'm sure you have read with the other reviews) yes, they can be daunting it's part of the charm to reach this little jewel of a hotel. My only regret was that I packed way too much for this trip (16 days in Italy). To get to Miramare you have to go down many steps (100 or so) they have their valets waiting for you at the top to take your luggage down. Our valet (he was my Samson) carried my over packed heavy luggage to the hotel. And when we left he did the same. Be sure to tip him well (as we did) you will know him when you see him. The whole staff goes above and beyond and we can't say enough great things about them.
We loved our time in Positano, it will forever hold a special place in our hearts, thanks in part to Rosita and the staff.
