This is a top quality location. Snuggled in the hillside between Tauro Park, the old colonial styled municipal building and the tree lined, pool and waterfall strung, wildlife rich gardens running down to the centre of town, this is an excellent, relaxing place. The hotel gardens and pool are a delight and views over Puerto from the higher rooms are spectacular by day and night. El Teide towers high above and if you're lucky the sun will shine. This side of the island is often cloudy but never despair because the sun will often appear by late morning to reward your optimism and patience.
The Miramar is an old style hotel with 2 sitting rooms/ libraries/ TV rooms and an excellent card table room with scrabble and other games. The rooms are decent though bathrooms need a refit (probably all the other 3 stars in Puerto as well) . The bedrooms and public areas have had a fairly recent decoration job and there are delightful views from the dining room. Puerto de la Cruz is the best place to stay on the island if you want surf, character and variety. The Lido is good for a sunny day, the beaches at Punta Bravo are fine and the old beach by the breakwaters is an exciting place for a morning dip. There's an outdoor olympic pool and the Loro Parque if that's your bag. You can enjoy enjoy and enjoy again the walk down into town and get fit by running up the millions of steps on the way back up.
So what's so very very blue? The aged, almost exclusively male staff are morose and fairly unhelpful though their poor service quality appears to be very even handed. Spanish, English, German, they don't adjust their mumbling glare. Also, you'll need a sense of humour at meal times as the food is often in the desperate category. Poor range, poor quality, poorly cooked, poorly presented. Poor.
Go B & B, ignore the staff and enjoy the rest.
