“Wonderful week in tropical paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

My wife and I spent a week at the Sheraton Mirage as part of a great deal we got through My Qld Holiday. This was a package including return air fares and airport to hotel transfers and two trips to the Barrier Reef.
The Sheraton is a lovely hotel to stay at, with a beautiful pool edged by pristine white sand, and set between a very good golf course and 4 mile beach.
We had some very good meals at the hotel but also enjoyed some magnificent dining experiences in the town which is only 10 minutes away in a regular bus service.

We booked a one week package with My Holiday Queensland which resulted in a great value holiday. The Resort although built in 1988 was clean and functional, The staff were helpful and the meals were terrific both in variety and value.
Our trips to the reef were interesting although the weather spoilt on trip.
All up a great trip and value for money.

We had reservations at this property during our visit to the Great Barrier Reef. It is in terrible need of a remodel. The landscape was unkept, the pool and water features need a major cleaning, there was no one available to help guests, we were concerned about eating the food as there weren't many people around and we were concerned it might not be turned over enough to be fresh, the drinks at the pool bar were terrible--they made them again and weren't much better.

The sleeping room was musty, rusty and doesn't look like it had been touched since it opened. There were spiders, bugs all around--it was much like camping.

There were so few people staying at the property, it was a little concerning--made us feel uncomfortable. After returning from dinner and seeing more of the property, we decided to go to our room and find other accommodations. We were fortunately to find rooms at the new QT Port Douglas.

The highlight of the trip as the hotel's flexibility at the front desk in getting us out of our reservations and allowing us to move to the other hotel.

I've read other reviews on the property, and cannot beging to see how anyone would rate this other than a terrible experience.

The land/site of the hotel has the potential to be spectacular--with the right owner and investment it could be incredible.

We attended a conference at the Sheridan Mirage Port Douglas and stayed at the resort for a few days. We stayed in the pool view room and it was excellent, quite, cool and very roomy. The staff were very polite and helpful which made the stay perfect. Yes the style is back in the eighties but I think this is what gives it its charm. The gardens and beautiful and pools are well kept and is a joy to just walk around and sit in one of the many lounges and read or take a dip.

Room Tip: Pool side rooms are lovely.

I think Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas is the best hotel in Australia.
I stayed seven nights in November / December.
It was the best holiday I have ever experienced.
The resort is harmonious with the tropical flora and fauna.
This resort has a beautiful aura.
Mellifluous healing energy revitalises, reenergises and restores.
The gardens are enchanting.
The resorts mystique peaks in the early morning.
Many happy memories have been created at this resort.
There is so much to treasure.

Room is a bit old. But we have the pool view with 25 bucks extra and it's beautiful. Additional 10 bucks for room service is a turn off. Do buy the discount vouchers for 240, it works out 20 bucks for a breakfast - good value.
Pool is excellent - a real delight.
Hotel lobby is very grand - free internet as well.
I wish free wifi provided in the room too coz it's an expensive hotel.
The green idea is great, you get 15 bucks credit if you don't require daily room service.

The rooms are fairly old, but everything worked and the beds were comfy and the room was spacious. The pools are amazing and just beautiful. The resort meals were a little over priced, but we chose to eat in town most nights and had some wonderful meals.
The staff were friendly, polite and helpful and I would definitely stay there again.
