“We will be back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Awesome pool, really large and refurbished apartments. Close to the beach which is also awesome. Loads of life guards. The location is great, not as busy as Maloolabah but close enough to walk to.
Highly recommend going whale watching and head to the Australia zoo!

Stayed October 2013

Hi and thank you for taking the time to write about The Mirage. We love the location of The Mirage, so close to the beach but away from the maddening crowd. Your comments will help future customers know that even though we are not on the main road we are oh so close to that beautiful Alex Beach! Please come back and enjoy the Mirage again soon.

Rooms were perfectly clean, beautifully designed and a pleasure to stay.
We loved the pool and BBQ area.

Thank you for taking the time to write of your stay with us. We are so fortunate to have such spacious apartments here. That is one advantage of having a slightly older building, in many of today's buildings rooms are much smaller. Please come back any time and relax around our pool and BBQ!

We had the most awesome holiday ! The Mirage was amazing we felt like we was in paradise, everything was spot on. we look forward to coming back ! Our room was perfect , ample room for the four of us with lovely views and very spacious inside , the grounds are very well kept , our favourite was the hot spa every night before dinner we would hop in for an hour! Nearly a month after our holiday we still talk about it and have the best memories ever !!!

I love it when I go on holiday and it is so good every time I remember it I feel happy - sounds like The Mirage provided this for you and that's what we love to hear. We never get tired of that spa, we even feel like we get a better night's sleep after a relax in it. Thank you for sharing your experience online and that you are still talking about us, we really value this precious feedback. Our intention is to continually improve all we offer at The Mirage so look forward to seeing you in the future.

My son and I stayed here last week and found the accommodation extremely comfortable and well maintained with everything you could ask for. The managers Ray and Wendy were always around and would do anything to make our stay more enjoyable.
We played tennis which was free, the pool was a great size and the spa a must for young teenagers. There was also a basketball court!
We will be coming back here again soon.
This is a big thumbs up from us!

Thank you for your great feedback from your October holiday. Keeping teens entertained on holiday is often a challenge. We find that while the little ones are happy to stay all day in the pools teens need more variety. Good you mentioned the tennis and basketball courts as these are free to use and often left out of property descriptions. There is also the free skate park across the road and ten pin bowling next door (if they have saved that pocketmoney!). At least after all that activity they will be worn out and you may get to relax.....

Selected The Mirage from a google search. Had planned a one night stay as a surprise for fathers day with my children. Could not had been happier with the room, the facilities and the staff. My children loved it and we can not wait to get back for a longer stay next time.

Thank you Google! Thank you Kevin R - we know it is quite a mission choosing accommodation from the list of places google gives you as available on the Sunshine Coast! So pleased you loved your stay and are already planning to return. One night is never enough time we agree! Don't forget we can sometimes offer return guest discounts for direct bookings so let us know you have stayed before when next booking.

My family and I frequently holiday on the Sunshine Coast and we know to always stay at The Mirage, we just had another great holiday there. The rooms were a great size, clean and tidy and with a great view. The place is quiet and relaxing even in the peak of school holidays. We walked down the road to the beach and wen't out to eat but also had a great bbq next to the pool. The heated pool was so nice, the kids never wanted to get out! The staff were pleasant, always greeted us on the way through and were very helpful with where to go for great food and things to do. We'll be back as soon as we can.

From one great location to another, Emerald Beach is one of our favorite places to visit when heading south! Thank you for taking the time to write of your experience during your Oct stay at The Mirage. We particularly love to know that our staff are doing a great job keeping the apartments clean and of course being friendly!! Look forward to seeing you again next year.

I just spent four days at the Mirage with my 2 year old and wife and I'll definitely be going back. We loved the pools, I usually don't like resort pools with so many people but there was a lap pool, a kids pool with a waterfall, a big pool (that was nice and warm) & a spa so there was plenty of room - perfect for my boy and his pregnant mum! I will add that the big pool has a big area of shallow water which was great for my son to play on and I wasn't worried about him. We were surprised at the size of the apartment and the view was nice even from level 1, it looked over the pool and lagoon, we could watch the ducks and swans from our balcony (quiet romantic really).
No busy roads, a short walk to the beach and shops, just a pleasant place to stay really.
I'd recommend it for everyone, especially families. Happy holidayers.

It has been a little while since I have read your review (yes, sorry to take so long to reply) but it reminded me that I wanted to say a great big THANK YOU for sharing how amazing the Mirage is for family holidays. Having the range of pools makes all the difference, we also have staff committed to maintaining our reputation of having the best resort pools on the coast! So, looks like we will be welcoming you back with a larger family next visit.
