One of our best hotel experiences ever!

I can't say enough about our stay at Miramare in Positano, the highlight of our trip to Italy. First, let me start with the spacious balcony and amazing view of the Mediterranean and the rolling hills of Positano. The view by itself (which was a living postcard) was worth the hotel stay, and I highly recommend you pay extra for a water front balcony.
The room was very comfortable and clean with lots of Positano-style decor which gave the room a lot of character. Out of all of the hotels we stayed at in Italy, Miramare had the largest room. My only complaint about the bathroom was the small shower stall, but hey, this is Italy, there are no hotel rooms the size of Texas. The free breakfast buffet was top notch as well with a great spread and sea views.
The staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Rosita, Carmella, and Nicola made us feel like family and were very passionate about delivering great service. They were extremely helpful making reservations on our behalf and providing recommendations for site-seeing/restaurants throughout our stay.
Perfect location, about a 5-10 minute walk to the beaches and shopping areas of Positano. There are about a dozen great restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. Everything is situated on cascading hills in Positano, so prepared to walk up and down quite a few steps, although the hotel is on one of the lower hills of the city.
Overall, a superb hotel and very memorable experience!
