Really enjoyed our time at Fairmont Miramar. We came to this property for my company's annual holiday party and it did not disappoint. Every single member of the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. We arrived early and we're able to unload our bags with the valet to be delivered when our room was ready. The coffee shop was perfect for much needed energy and small bites/smoothies. The property was gorgeous and thoroughly entertained our toddler with the many fountains. I don't think there is a bad view in this place, but ours was perfect for the sunset. Cannot say enough good things about our time here.

This hotel has a perfect view of the ocean. The hotel is old but well maintained. Thank you for the early check in. However we were put into a room right next to the renovations they were being carried out in the room next to ours. The noise was unbearable. We asked to be moved. They obliged. The problem was that we were put in a room right next to another room that was being renovated. This made for a noisy stay. We had purchased room and breakfast all inclusive. Only to be told that breakfast was only to the value of $70USD per room. You might think that that is a lot. Well think again. Scrabbled eggs with 3 bits of bacon was $28.00. Our total breakfast was over $80.00 per day. In our booking there is nothing to say it’s $70. Be careful when booking this. I am a Diamond Accor member and was not offered any of the benefits that come with that status. There was one guy on the front desk who was rude and very unfriendly. There are 3 things that I expect from a 5 star hotel. location. This place has a great location. Value for money: this hotel falls very short when talking about value for money. And Friendly staff: most of the staff were very nice and helpful. All but one on the front desk. I was disappointed with this hotel.
