My husband and I stayed here for a week, Oct 6-13th. We are Marriott timeshare owners, and exchanged for a week into the Villa Mirage, because we were assured it was also considered a "5-star" property.
Well, it definitely is not. The rooms are decorated nicely, there is a so-so amount of space, and the single pool was "nice." But that's just it - everything was nice, but there were not the extras or "WOW's" that you should have for a top rated resort. Just having one pool for so many units was not enough. There is a large multi-person jacuzzi by the pool though, as well as a kiddie pool and water fountain/water jets area for the kids to run through. But the activities were only aimed at kids or families, and as a couple on our own, it left us with very little to do.
There was no bar or pleasant casual eating area, but a tiny snack bar with limited breakfast & lunch. There are two tennis courts, and those seemed to be used a lot. Also, two work-out rooms nicely equipped.
There were only two or three picnic table areas, with a few barbecues. All in all, not enough facilities for the amount of villas in the place. We had a one-bedroom villa - nicely furnished, but would have felt crowded with the two more that are suggested to sleep on the sofa. Nice large bathroom, though, and lovely balcony. The best thing about the Villa Mirage was the complete cleanliness of everything. We needed extra hangers, and they were brought quickly and with a smile. When both flourescent bathroom bulbs burned out around 7:00 on a Sunday night, they were there to replace them just as we were leaving for dinner.
Overall - "nice", but should have more to do, and more upscale furnishings, to have been rated 5 stars by the Interval International and RCI books.
