june 2008 was not as nice as usual due to the oasis needing to relocate some of their all inclusive guests, which made it very rowdy and alot of complaining brits.
we have always found the miramare a relaxing and friendly hotel.
the food is fresh and local. and they cater from toasted cheese sandwiches right through to their a la carte red room restaurant.
the staff are attentive from serving you at the poolside and helping you to move your parasol.
rooms are cleaned daily, maids even wash your coffee cups and turn down beds in the evening.
a fabulous location, with its own private beach and fabulous restaurants within walking distance.
every evening their is something going on from dancers to a wonderful funny magician
not the greatest hotel for families as most guests are regulars and there to relax, not the place if you want to sunbathe topless. a little more reserved than many cypriot holtels

How wrong could they be. We were told by the rep at the welcome meeting that it was and never has been a family hotel and that it was only doing all inclusive because of the situation with the Oasis.
I must say that this hotel was taken over by the Atlantica group at the back end of last year and alot of cosmetic improvements have been made since then.
It really is a beautiful hotel. Very classy in its appearance and I would imagine ideal if you were looking for a hotel for a couple.
Unfortunately we had two 15yr old girls. The facilities at the hotel are very good and the staff very attentive.
This hotel does however cater for a majority of Greek and Russian tourists and everything seems to be geared up for them. The evening entertainment consisted mainly of greek folk singers or lounge singers.
The only decent night was Thursday night and the magic show. The daytime animation team was a russian girl who I think we saw once, and then she was trying to round up the russian lads for a game of french boules.
She apparantly snubbed all the british children in favour of the russian kids when given a load of pirate hats and bandanas.
The food at the hotel was very repetitive. The same meals served on the same day each week. It was all luke warm and again catered more to the greek and russian palate.
They sometimes had a kids section, I think it depended on how they felt and then it was chicken nuggets. On the barbeque night we ate on the terrace near the beach and although the hot section was covered, it was still only luke warm.
The salad selection and the desert section was left in the open and i think the flies really enjoyed it. One of our party is a real fussy eater and on some occasions was left with just a bread roll.
The other thing was the carvery section. The guy carving the meat was very reluctant to part with his meat and looked at you in disgust if you dare ask for more.The meals were served in any number of locations dependant on whether they had booked any functions. I half expected to find us eating in the carpark.
We did have a couple of hiccups with the cleaning of the rooms aswell. One day i went back to the room to find the beds made, the patio doors open, window wash bottle on the bathroom side, a brush leant up against the wall on the balcony(waiting to be used).
I phoned reception and was assured that housekeeping would take care of it. Four hours later the cleaning equipment was in the same place the balcony had still not been swept.
So I contacted reception again, within twenty minutes a woman came, let herself into the room without knocking, went onto the balcony, picked up her brush, went into the bathroom and picked up her window wash and left without a word.
All in all the Miramare have bitten more off than they can chew ifeel. The staff are very polite and efficient but without the friendliness of the Atlantica Oasis staff.( I think anyone who has been to the Oasis will know what I mean). So beware of this hotel if you have kids!
Thank god for the Atlantica Gardens!
