We just returned from a 10 day stay at Villa Mirage. I had a conference in Scottsdale and decided not to stay at the conference hotel instead pick one with nice rooms. We discovered this place because we are knew another Sunterra resort down in Florida, which completly satisfied us during the last years. And this resport was no disapointment either.
We booked a two bedroom suite, even we were only two people. It is only some USD more, and provided so much space: full kitchen, big living area and two bathrooms. All of that is nice. The rooms are very well maintained, even though we had the feeling, the equipment is somewhat older/less high priced than in Orlando. But we felt very comfortable over our whole stay. The beds are nice and cosy, and the whole resort in an excellent condition. The appartments are organized as two story buildings, we were lucky, because we had ground floor. There are no elevators.
The personal was always very friendly and helpful when we needed them - but just to mention: we did not contact them after check-in again. But they have all what you may need during your stay, we simply don't need much in this direction. What I found somewhat annoing was that after a more than 20 h travel we had to talk to the concierge, and she wanted to interest us in a sales presentation about Sunterra. Just to mention: after such a long travel I'm not open minded for that, I simply wanted to go sleeping. But beside that she was helpful, providing excellent maps for the area and tips.
What we liked at this resort as well, was that it was easy to park our car directly outside of our appartment and even when the hotel was filled up, it was never a problem to find a good parking lot. The hotel also provides many facilities such as: BBQ places with tables, pool, spa etc.. Even though this is my only concern. We were single travellers without any kids, and we discovered that this is a family place - means: many kids and at the pool there was too less space even though this thing looks big. Running, splacing water, diving right next to where you are talking to other travellers in the pool was normal. Also the cleaningness of the water is questionable: the smell in the afternoon hours was saying all about where the restrooms had been over the day for many of the pool users. We would have wished some kind of a quite pool area, where you could simply cool down from the high temperatures without all that mess. So we never spend more than about half an hour there. This was really sad.
The location: this is great, where close to the loop of 101 and close to restaurants and malls. Easy to find, even not with the Hertz navigation system, which has a street in its mind which does not exist.
Overall this is a great place. For the pool we may consider next time a hotel either with bigger pools or more business oriented. But a great choise for families.
