“Quiet Hotel - good value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2008

I stayed at the Mirage Resort Guesthouse from July 5-9, 2008. This was my third stay at the Mirage and I would stay again. The price for the room is a good value. Some may not like the Mirage for the property is old and could use some updating/repairs and it is not on the beach or near restaurants and bars.

The Mirage is small seaside property located between Negril Escape and Tensing Pen. The rooms are large with king or queen beds, AC, mini-fridges, coffee makers, and TV (about 7 channels). There is no beach, pool, bar or restaurant. There is sea access, nice jumping, swimming, a quiet scenic place to sun, lounge, or to fish. The Wise Choice market is close by and it has a good choice of drinks, snacks, and supplies. Most places to eat are about a ten minute walk away or a short route taxi ride. For breakfast try Sips and Bites or LTU Pub. For dinner take her to the LTU Pub if she's mad, De Bar and Grill or 3 dives for Jerk Chicken, or the Sea Star Inn. The Sea Star Inn has a $12 buffet on Saturday night that includes live entertainment and they pick you up.

Robert, Canada
I am a frequent traveller to negril and this in my opinion is the best value resort on the cliffs.
Great rooms, nice patio and sunning areas , easy access to the water for snorkeling and clothing optional sunbathing. Pat is the General Manager and lives on the premises and truly cares about her guests and the success of the Mirage. She goes out of her way to ensure you enjoy your stay. Any concerns were immediately adressed and she arranged trips for me to Bloody Bay and into town at fair and reasonable prices by the driver Vincent. Rosemarie, is the housekeeper and is pleasant , courteous and conscientious.
This is a small resort within walking distance to several resteraunts. It is ideal for anyone wanting a relaxed quiet vacation with a really nice room at a very reasonable rate. I paid about 50 USD per night in mid April and will be back in November.
Thanks Pat , Rosemarie, and Vincent

My daughter and I spent a week at Mirage and it was delightful experience. It's a great place to be if you want to relax. The view is breathtaking. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff are great. You have the feeling of being at a B&B more than staying at a hotel. Meeting Patricia and the boys was one of the highlights of our trip--along with feeding Chipster and looking at her new puppies! If you want to relax and unwind--at a very reasonable price--this is the place to go!

We spent a week at Mirage in one of the 1st floor rooms (the largest on the end towards the beach).
Patricia, who oversees the property, is wonderful! She lives there with her two young boys and was always very attentive to any needs we might have.
The room was very nice. It was HUGE, and very clean with mini frig, cable TV with remote, excellent a/c with remote, coffee maker and fan. The room also had a comfortable king sized bed and a balcony with table and two chairs, a lounger and a wonderful view of the sea!
The bathroom was also HUGE, with wardrobe, sink area and large shower. There was always hot water; however, the water pressure for the shower could have been better (but I think its a Negril thing and not the hotel itself).
Excellent maid service was provided daily and she would wait until you were heading out for the day.
The property is right on Cliff Road, a 10 minute walk to Rick's Cafe (very nice place to hang out a few times), and a short taxi ride to the beach.
It sits right between the renamed Mariner's Inn (now Negril Escape) and Tensing Pen.
Of course you only have to wait about 10 seconds to get a taxi to anywhere you want to go, but negotiate the fare. They try to charge you $10 for a ride to the beach, but we always ended up paying only 3J.
Most days, we took a taxi down to Mirage's sister property on the beach, the Charlea Inn, which is a very nice beach location and they had plenty of lounge chairs/towels (you sign for) to provide you and lots of shady areas under their numerous palms.
The Charlea Inn is next to White Sands, so we took advantage of their special 2 for 1 drinks several days.
This was our first trip to the cliffs and we enjoyed it; however, I (wife) missed out on some of the beach nightlife I would have liked since once we got back from the beach, I couldn't convince hubby to go back out! There is no bar/restaurant/pool on the property and not a lot of choices very close by. There are two small grocery stores within a short walk.
The Mirage advertises it is clothing optional. We did not find the resort very conducive to this however, and didn't see anyone taking advantage of this, but there is a small secluded area where you can sunbathe in the nude if you choose to. We did not feel comfortable doing this.
Mirage is a wonderful small cliff hotel for anyone who likes to stay on the cliffs. It is definitely a place for peace and quite! They have security at night from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. and they lock the gates at night and open them for you whenever you return.
