Can I say at the outset that the Miragem is a lovely hotel in almost every respect,and I would echo all the nice things that has been said by previous guests.The staff are really nice welcoming and friendly.The hotel itself is beautiful,lovely rooms all overlooking the pool and sea.The food is lovely with a nice buffet lunch.It has a fantastic restaurant serving wonderful food.
So we are giving the Miragem top marks, we really enjoyed our stay,its a great hotel..................................IF............. you like this type of hotel.For all its fine furnishings, its grandeur ,its enormous lobby area with lovely sweeping staircase and beautiful fresh flower arangements,for me it lacked atmosphere.Its too big.It has no soul.I would have prefered something smaller more intimate.
A major disappoint to me also was the location vis a vis the beach.This is NOT a beach hotel.To get to the beach you have to go down 3 floors out through the main lobby cross a very busy duel carrageway walk 100m ,again cross the busy carrageway into a dank graffiti covered underpass and emerge on the other side of the rail line to a concrete area then walk back 100m to a very crowded tiny beach.
Once you are aware of these limitations you will have a wonderful stay at the Miragem.
So my search for a nice hotel ON a beach continues.Any advise from tripadvisarians??very welcome.
