I wrote a review for the Miragem last year because I was so impressed with this hotel. We returned this year to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary, and wow, I am just if not more impressed. We booked four rooms, with a total of seven adults and two kids. You can not go wrong with this hotel. We have traveled all over the world and stayed in many 5-star hotels, but this hotel is something special. They attend to every detail, from the selection and service at breakfast, to stuffed animals for the kids, to frozen grapes passed at the pool in the afternoon. Every singe employee that we met was professional and kind. The rooms are spotless, roomy and so very comfortable. The maids do a tremendous job. And need we mention the value for the money? You would never get this anywhere else in southern Europe. Anyone who has a problem with this hotel has no idea what traveling is about. Thank you to EVERYONE at the Miragem for making my parents anniversary so special. It is a time we will never forget! And we will be back next summer!

We look forward to staying at this hotel every year. The ocean side of the hotel provides a great way to start your day. You will find that the view
from your balcony allows you to remember why you have worked so hard all year.
YES - The breakfast is great and you can just sit back and relax at the pool but the real reason you want to stay at this hotel IS THE STAFF !!
WE HAVE NEVER BEEN TO A HOTEL THAT HAD A BETTER GROUP OF PEOPLE. From the time you enter the hotel, everyone wants to make sure you enjoy your stay. The restaurant staff greeted the guests every morning and made sure their every need were addressed. The bar staff was well trained in the wine area and always happy to make a suggestion.
If you get the chance to visit this area - make sure you stay at this hotel !!

We stayed 10 nights with our 2 year old. Very friendly staff on arrival, especially the baggage/concierge guys, made us feel very welcome. We were given a wonderful spacious room on the top floor which unfortunately was a smoking room when I did specifically request a non smoking room when booking. Note: the top 2 floors of this hotel are all smoking. We went out whilst they sorted another room for us, this room again was very spacious although smaller than the first and had a slightly restricted sea view. Huge bathroom and a very comfortable bed. Unfortunately we had to move rooms again half way through our trip due to a problem with ants! This time we were upgraded to a suite, lots of room and a super view of the sea/town. The rooms are very well insulated so peace and quiet. The hotel has a Holmes Place gym as part of it, the gym (if you are a gym enthusiast like us) is fantastic, large and plenty of classes on offer, it also houses the indoor swimming pool. The outdoor pool at the hotel is very nice, overlooking the ocean and plenty of sunbeds around, it never felt too cramped. The food and service at the pool restaurant could certainly benefit from some improvement! Slow service and lack of choice. The sushi restaurant below the hotel was very nice, we ate there a few times. The hotel is in a good location, albeit on a busy road but this wasn't an issue. 10 min walk into town where there are some superb restaurants. Also a very very good little cafe/ restaurant on the sea, directly in front of the hotel (first one you come to) serving fresh fish every day for lunch. Overall a super hotel that just lacks a little attention to detail in places, however, would def stay again.

Had great expectations of this hotel based on previous reviews. However, there were some aspects disappointing. Pool & pool deck area very small. August is busy time and sunbeds were pretty much on top of one another. Breakfast was indeed very good, but repetitive. No variety in what was offered over the course of 8 days. Service at breakfast was extremely efficient tho & the waiting staff were very friendly as were the pool staff. The hotel lobby while very impressive begs the question why so big when so underused. Doesn't lend itself to any interaction between front desk staff and guests. Bedroom was good size, we had booked room overlooking pool with sea view and was worth the extra. Location of this hotel very good and the standard of the hotel furnishings, atmosphere, etc are certainly 5*, but it just lacked something in atmosphere or sense of being special.

Good location, service and all round great place for the family. Breakfast really top notch... Suite great for a family of 4 - enormous balcony and superb views. We only
ate at the hotel nice in the evening and it was perhaps a little quiet and therefore soulless - plenty of good reastaurants in the town centre down the road.
