Positano - Miramare or Poseidon?

We stayed at the Poseidon two years ago. It was very nice; great view, location, bathroom. The room itself was okay. We are returning to Positano for our 25th anniversary in July, and thought to try out the Miramare (the famous room #210) instead.
Has anyone stayed/been to both?
The Miramare's website does not have many pictures, so it's hard to compare. Is there another site with more pictures?

We stayed at Miremare in October and were lucky enough to book room 210. we have never stayed at poseidon but can guarantee if you are looking for a hotel room you would never describe as just "OKAY" then the miramare is for you. It was our 21st Anniversary and this hotel and room made it more like a honeymoon. Web site does leave a little to be desired but hotel and staff made up for it for us.

We spent the first 3 nights of our honeymoon (just this past Sept) in room 210 of Miramare. You will not be disappointed!!! The room is absolutely fabulous - gorgeous wall of windows, and a wonderful large terrace with 2 chaises and a table/chairs for 2. The staff is wonderful. We had breakfast on our terrace (just call the front desk and ask) and it was an amazing experience. The view is fantastic - you feel like you could dive right in the ocean. Enjoy!!!

I know that there are big Poseidon boosters on this board, but at the risk of this board sounding like an echo chamber, another vote for Miramare. Here's a link to my trip report, with a description of Room 210 and the pros and cons of the hotel:

I didn't walk into the Poseidon, but just by walking by, I noticed that that hotel doesn't actually open up onto the sea directly, but actually sits right above the main street in Positano.

The location at the Miramare really cannot be beat. There is literally nothing between your terrace (any terrace at the Miramare, but in particular Room 210) and the sea. You can see clearly the dome, a vast stretch of the Amalfi coastline, the sea, and the Li Galli Islands.

There are no better pictures of the Miramare, sadly (believe me, I scoured the web before I left!). One consolation, however: although I had high expectations of Positano and Room 210, I wasn't disappointed. Part of the fun was imagining the place with the mind's eye.
