Positano, Amalfi Coast, Italy
Although the Miramare could use a little updating, its location — within a 10-minute walk to the beach and the center of Positano — is hard to beat. The Mediterranean décor is warm and welcoming, and rooms have amazing views of the Gulf of Salerno. Given its location on a cliff, guests should expect to do a lot of walking up and down stairs, but this is the norm in the area. Although there's no pool and the property lacks the newness and luxury of hotels such as the Villa Fiorentino or Il San Pietro up the road, the Miramare’s convenient central location make it a great value.
