Reviewed 4 December 2012

Clean hotel and its interesting as its like stepping back to the eighties. Not sure if its good value as we signed up all inclusive but we couldn't eat the food. My wife says I can eat anything but it beat me and we had all meals out. Shame as the rest of this hotel is good - budget as not inclusive and you won't go far wrong.

great hotel, friendly staff, good food. there's a thousand and one steps to walk up an down if your heading into town, but good form of exercise if you've over indulged on the buffet, overhaul generally good nice and quiet hotel out of the way from the noise would reccomend to anybody looking for a quiet break.

Just got back from a weeks holiday in the Miramar. This hotel was good and all the staff were quite pleasant. The Hotel was clean and we had a spacious room. We asked for three things and although we were told there was no guarantee we got all three. These were a double bed. A sea view and balcony, so we were happy. I was told though that in winter a room at the back of the hotel gets the afternoon sun. The hotel however was up a hill with a good 20 min walk back up, but if you go through the garden that leads down into the town its a beautiful walk encompassing a smashing man made waterfall within the garden. A quick taxi ride back up the hill is only 3 euro so the hill should not put anyone off.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the back of the hotel get the sun in winter I was told. But the sea view without t...

This is one of the nicest 3 star hotels I have stayed in, very quaint. Booked as a last minute cheap deal and was not expecting much for the cheap price we payed, however I was very impressed, the hotel is spotless, the staff well manered and friendly, the gardens beautiful. The food .... well there was not much of a choice but what was there did the job just fine. If this had been important for us we would have not booked this hotel at the price we paid. I overheard a few people moaning about the food, which I do not think is fair on the hotel, I am aware that you get what you pay for, and the hotel Miramar exceeded my expectations, had a wonderful relaxing time.

just back from a 2 wk stay.our 3 bed studio room 716 faced a tropical garden,to one side sea views and the other mount tiede,spectacular views in daytime and night which was a bonus.room was very clean bright and spacious,large cupboard and plenty drawer space,shower/bath always hot water.carpeted in our room and hallway which i didnt really like, seemingly other rooms had wooden floors.rooms were cleaned, given fresh towels and beds were made everyday.downstairs at reception area was quite classical designed,could do with a bit of updating but comfortable,adds to it's charm i guess.the lift was old and we got stuck in it for approx 3 minutes,handyman/mechanic came quickly and fixed it,so no harm done.hotel has 2 pc's (1 euro for 15 minutes,2 euro for 30 min)for internet use and tables for card games/board games etc,2 tv rooms,plenty comfortable chairs for relaxing,only a few chanels on tv,only 1 british.swimming pool reasonably sized,pool area was kept clean and tidy,had toilets and showers,crazy golf,table tenis and small play area,swings etc was easy accessable,wheelchair friendly.beautiful tropical plants,flowers and trees in the gardens,banana tree and papiya tree laded with it's fruit.we saw alot of cute lizards which came out for a nosey,which our daughter loved,it added to the fun of our stay,the food was very good and always hot/cold appropriately,something for everyone.the waiter pedro stood out from the other staff as he spoke good english and was friendly.the entertainment was once a week on a saturday nite only music and man playing keyboard/trumpet,most nights bar wasnt very busy.
a short distance from miramar was gorgeous biotanical gardens and waterfalls......down the hill and many stairs later were the shops,restaurants and bars.the front promenade was busy every day and night with that much needed buzz after being in a quiet hotel.alternatively take the free shuttle bus down the hill from hotel and back daily mon-fri only,a bit old and rickety but has good brakes!we would take the stairs down into town then on occassion use the bus ride back up.
our stay was comfortable and pleasant,good value for money.hotel a bit too quiet for us normally but we would return happily.we had a great holiday at miramar!

Room Tip: rooms higher up have better views

Mother and two kids aged 10 and 12, first time abroad alone.

This was a very late booking so a little apprehensive, however I was very happy with all aspects of the hotel and had a lovely holiday.

I e mailed ahead having read reviews here and asked for a quiet room with a good view. I was a little disappointed that the main view out of our window was the mountain and the neighbours empty swimming pool, with a sideways view of the sea. However it seems that this was indeed one of the better rooms, spacious and ideal for myself and two kids, or two adults and a child as the third bed was round a little wall which meant I could read while they got off to sleep.

Maid service every day, rooms exceedingly clean and well decorated, comfy beds, lots of clean towels, good shower and plenty of hot water, although pool showers were not heated.

No kids club, no evening entertainment apart from a fella on a keyboard on sat night, but I liked it this way, was more like being at home with your own pool! Nightlife in town if you want it.

Food was very good for the price, some frozen veg and tinned fruit but also plenty of fresh salad and fruit, home made hot food every night, not adventurous but wholesome and tasty, we ate very well. Plenty of cheese and egg and fish dishes if you didn't want meat.

I would agree that some of the staff are less than welcoming and not very smily, although all were helpful, maybe it's a cultural thing, Spanish pride? Apart from the room maids and one lady I saw very occasionally on reception, all the staff were male.

The gardens are beautiful and the pool was a highlight for the kids especially, the views are stunning by day or night, take a moment to go up to the roof if you can manage.

Puerto cruz is a lovely little town, I felt very safe, no rowdy unsociable behaviour anywhere that we saw. Coffee 80cents and sandwiches available for 1.50euro.

Unless you're hiring a car buy a bono bus ticket for much cheaper fares and visit some of the other local towns, lots to do although Julie the rep won't/doesn't tell you about anything that she's not selling, she had no idea about kids needs her info was limited to a pub selling coffee and the two big parks which you couldn't fail to miss anyway. Loro parque and Siam water park are very worth a visit, I have been to Florida several times and these are as good as the ones there, kids loved them.

Right next to the hotel is a park with a small bar/cafe and child's play area, lots of joggers at all times of day, coupled with the 200+ steps up and down to town lots of potential to get fit!

My only warning would be for anyone with very small children, all the windows slide open like patio doors leaving a gaping hole in the building, toddlers would need to be constantly supervised, the windows do lock when closed but are not difficult to open, and there is no way to prevent them opening fully. There are ground floor rooms with enclosed private terraces, these might be best.

Overall we had a great time, there is still lots on the island to explore (that Julie didn't tell us about) would definitely go back to this location and this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for what you fancy!

Just returned from a 2 wk stay.

Location - perfect. In green/tropical park area. Fantastic hotel grounds, views from all angles, not overlooked by other buildings. E4 each to visit private water gardens below the hotel - lovely, views of the sea. Short walk to the left of the hotel, Taoro Park - volcanic gardens, to the front of the hotel, Taoro Hotel gardens, Right of hotel, pretty road with a 5 min walk to beautiful terraced water gardens into town.- killer steps returning!

Interior of hotel - Faded elegance, charm, even though its tatty in places, needs refurbishment.
Clean, cool and airy, you don't feel you are in a 'package hotel'. Large dining room, long windows overlooking quiet tree lined road and gardens. Side window views of the garden, sea, and hills. TV room and small library, odd decor but that adds to the charm for us.

We had Room 803, panoramic views of the sea, gardens and hills and coastline, sun on the terrace in the pm. Large airy room, lots of storage space, generous sized bathroom .Lots of hot water.

Outside - small side garden near a building - apartments? views to hills. Pool was superb, quiet, clean, plenty of loungers and chairs, shade. Pool wc and showers, and outside shower.
Glorious garden and bar, super bar food . Pretty games area, pool, crazy golf, table tennis.

Staff - great - reception staff at times appeared preoccupied, but always friendly - but so are we! Super waiters -Pedro and Esteban and others. One chap wasn't over friendly in the mornings, but was ok. Ed the bar man speaks good English and his dad is the pool barman. Lovely people when you make the effort to get to know them.

FOOD - Traditional, please don't expect British food, not for faddy eaters. It varied from ok to really lovely - you can 'graze' and fill up on every meal. There is room for improvement, please can the food be HOT! Having said that I've put a stone on!!

Absolutely would return. It was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. Would still return at £50 per head more (to fund needed improvements), it still would be good value.
