GRAND HOTEL MIRAMARE
In 1903 Mr. Giacomo Costa transformed his private residence into a hotel, entrusting the management to the Kuoni-Stoppani family, founders of one of the oldest European travel agencies: this is how the Miramare soon became one of the first Grand Hotels on the Portofino coast. The Grand Hotel Miramare with its large liberty style building, overlooking the promenade to Portofino, dominates the Tigullio Gulf. An exclusive holiday destination for more than a century, the Grand Hotel Miramare offers its guests an atmosphere of elegant simplicity and comfort. Since 1945, the hotel belongs to the Fustinoni family.
The Hotel has 75 rooms either facing the Mediterranean Park or the sea, and 5 junior suites and 4 suites, all with sea view and balcony. All rooms are air-conditioned and have satellite TV, mini-bar, direct dial telephones, Internet access, safe, hair dryer and Etro bathroom amenities.
The panoramic restaurant "Les Bougainvillees" has regained its old splendour with the restoration of its stuccoes and frescoes which decorated the great hall in 1903, the year of opening. Famous for its renowned wine cellars, the restaurant is also open to non-resident clients. The Piano Bar Barracuda is an elegant alternative to winter nights in the Riviera. The hotel also offers poolside summer buffet and barbecue, beach restaurant and pool cocktail bar and American Bar "Le Colonne".
Heated open air sea water pool is open from April to October. Sun beds, umbrellas and towels are available free of charge. All the main water sports are catered for: sailing, yachting, canoeing and diving. During the summer, acquagym courses and swimming courses for children are organized at Miramare Beach. The Rapallo Golf Club is one of the oldest clubs in Italy. The course, mild in winter and airy in summer, has a wealth of natural obstacles and requires a continuous demand on the player's skills. Guests of Grand Hotel Miramare have special arrangements at the club.
