“Fantastic Stay!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2012

Our family stayed in a lovely three bedroom unit for a full week and absolutely loved it. The unit had everything we needed, was lovely and clean and overlooked the pool and park with nice views of the ocean.
It was very family friendly. The kids especially loved the pool which was perfect for children with so much space to play.
I would recommend the Mirage to anyone and everyone because not only is it a lovely place to be, it is close to so much on the the Sunshine Coast.
A real home away from home! Thanks for a great stay!!

We agree with everything you have said! Thank you for taking the time to write of your experience here on trip advisor. The pool is such a great feature of our property, such an innovative design to cater for kids of all ages and swimming levels. Look forward to welcoming you back to the Mirage for another family holiday.

We recently stayed at the mirage with our baby and 2 friends in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apt. We paid extra for the top floor which includes a private rooftop balcony. The apt was very nice, had air con throughout and balconies had ocean views. Staff were very helpful and the pools and grounds were beautiful. I believe the apartments are all individually owned and furnished so they may not all be like ours but we were more than happy. Will definitely stay again

I love your title “Holiday away from the crowds” because isn’t it amazing how our location gives access to everything on the coast but is so private and restful. Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience at The Mirage, hope your baby enjoys many happy holidays with us!

We stayed here from the 3rd to the 5th of December with the family. The hotel is much better than the photos on their website, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It is definitely one of the best value for money hotel around. We had a very good time staying there and will return if ever going back to sunshine coast again.

Room Tip: Get the room facing the lake and the sea, best view ever

Staff at the Hotel were extremely accommodating, organising an early check-in without hesitation. They certainly made our stay most pleasurable and welcoming. The Hotel managers had even gone out of their way to turn on the lights and fans prior to our arrival.

Our spacious 3bdrm apartment was very special. The decor is very modern and luxurious and had everything we needed and more. The views from the balcony in our very comfortable chairs was certainly a highlight of our stay.

The facilities were very well maintained and the pool was a delight with different areas to explore.

All in all this was one of the best places we have stayed at and we definitely received value for money. Although it wasn't on the beach we enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle of the and could still walk there and see it from our balcony.

The park with pond and playground in front of the complex was most enjoyable and we enjoyed walking to the local restaurants and surf club for dinner.

Room Tip: All of the rooms had great views so I don't think any was better than the other. Ours had air c...

Wonderful place, very helpful and friendly Managers.
They went out of their way to help us and offer extra help, pool toys, beach toys etc. All above and beyond what I'd expect from any accommodation. The range of pools and varying depth of them was brilliant for the kids and made it easy and enjoyable for us to spend plenty of time there. Easy walking distance to the beach and local surf club and a huge local playground.

We had a fantastic big 3 bed apartment and the kitchen had everything we could have needed. Nice and spacious with leather lounges which is wonderful with small kids as you're not worried about them spilling things on fabric.

Loved the ceiling fans in all the rooms! So nice to be able to sleep with fresh air coming in the windows rather than not having a choice but to sleep in aircon like many places.

We will definitely be back! We all loved it and have declared it our new family escape location- so easy to get away for a few days when everything you need is catered for.

The surrounding grounds, pools, BBQ and tennis court were great at The Mirage and the staff were nice too. Unfortunately the two bedroom apartment was very disappointing. The decor was very 20+ years out-of-date and did not reflect the wotif's photo gallery or The Mirage's photos on line. The apartment was in good condition and clean - just very out of date. The air conditioning was only in the lounge room and not throughout the apartment. Unit 4 on Level 1, is definitely not an apartment for a family as the windows in the bedrooms do not have security or screen for climbing toddlers!! Ocean facing balconies do not give you a view of the ocean or even glimpses. The cost for this particular apartment was then I believed overpriced.

Room Tip: If you want FULL airconditioning throughout make sure you ask if your apartment has this. What is t...

the staff at the Mirage were very pleasant and helpful, but we found that the 2 bedroom apartments did not look anything like what is featured on their website!

Only 2 apartments have full aircon so if you dont like the heat this will be a problem in summer.
Bedding is very old fashioned for 2011 and the price paid.

pool area and lap-pool is lovely. only a stroll from the beach but no views.

we felt definitely overpriced compared with other similar locations.
