Rated 5 out of 5 by Lam1 Awesome Beach!
The Gold Coast is rather crowded with high rises and in summer full of partying students. The Sheraton is on the other end of the beach, very low key with a gorgeous stretch of beach that you have virtually to yourself. Perfect if you love quiet, beautiful beach experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Onthehop55 Love The Sheraton!!
Stayed here in a Mirage room on the 3rd floor. Bed and pillows were like sleeping on a cloud. The whole ambiance of the resort was so relaxing and even one night get away felt totally worthwhile. I live on the GC and will definitely be going back. Breakfast was devine

Rated 5 out of 5 by KJAJ GREAT HOTEL
THE HOTEL IS PERFECTLY SITUATED RIGHT ON BEACH AND HAS AN AMAZING POOL AREA FOR RELAXING AND FUN. ROOMS ARE WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT AT A5 STAR HOTEL. WE ALWAY MAKE SURE WE USE THE RESTAURANT EVERY TIME WE GO THERE AS THE FOOD IS GREAT. DEFINATELY WILL STAY THERE AGAIN.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosie34 This hotel has a fantastic position
Upon arrival we were upgraded to a superior spa room which overlooked both the pool (which was fabulous) and the ocean. Service was excellent and so much so we didn't want to leave the hotel to have dinner. Our stay was too short and we are looking forward to coming back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shannon87 Subtley superb
The resort was awe-inspiring upon first walking, the views of the beach and pool from the main foyer were fantastic. The room itself was clean, spacious and very accommodating. Food at the breakfast smorgasboard was fresh and tasted wonderful. Definitely stay here again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nicki6 What happened to be piano bar?
This hotel used to be my favourite hotel, fantastic staff, great atmosphere and that included the piano bar, where I would sit and relax. But now the piano has gone. Yes, the staff are still great, the views are fantastic but without the piano bar I may have to defect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by scb222 Very Nice Indeed
A lovely hotel, the room was also nice. Breakfast buffet couldve been better, food wasn't hot. Service in restaurant below par. Breakfast fruit choices, wonderful. Facilities at this hotel are great and we really appreciated the free self-parking. Can't wait to return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jamin65 A lovely location but its the small things that failed
We decided to take a two bedroom Villa with study as we have teenage children - while overall the gardens and rooms presented well and our stay was comfortable we encountered numerous little issues - rubbish had been hidden in the bottom of the fruit bowl, the equipment was old, the TV required a technician to come to our room to get it to work, the spare bed was not comfortable and we were put in the Villa that was beside the highway making the verandah useless. The worst experience was as we left, one of my daughters left a ring in the room - we had checked out and as she is old enough, she approached reception herself, she was told to wait while the lady at reception found someone to let her back into the room - ultimately 30 minutes later I went to the room looking for her - I was let into the wing by a friendly guest and then found a very friendly cleaning lady who let me in to the room - while she waited I found the ring and went in search of my daughter who was still waiting at reception 45 minutes later. Very poor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rudi reular stay
The renovation of the hotel was successful and the rooms are modern, pleasant and comfortable. Bathrooms lack certain sophistication. especially with the unwanted and unpractical Jacuzzi.. This time I got a suite which was perfect but not much helpful because I was on my own.
The door-concierge on arrival desk give an amazing service, very professional. thoughtful and efficient. The reception service however is very slow (I had the same experience at every stay at this hotel).
The Restaurant service is also very mediocre, the service staff does not pay enough attention to immediate service and I have each time difficulty to attract their attention.
In the morning I called the concierge for an extended time to bring my car out but there was no one who answered. I then called the Guest Service number and had to wait over one minutes until I someone finally took my callo.
The hotel has a great location, is nicely renovated but it just needs the improvement for efficient service. Maybe is not catering for business travellers?

Rated 3 out of 5 by Halong very basic room inclusions
We haven't stayed here for a few years and compared to then the accommodation was disappointing. One expects the 5 star treatment and inclusions however the inclusions such as coffee and toiletries were very basic and what you would expect and get in a 3 star hotel.

Love this place. It has become our home away from home for a quick break away and is a real treat every time. Beautiful environment, sparkling pool, friendly staff, gorgeous rooms and divine meals. It's like being able to head to a tropical island for the weekend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Martin11 This hotel has an excellent location
This is our second stay at the Sheraton Mirage, and we enjoyed it even more than the first. Its ocean front location provides both an excellent beach and a great pool.
The staff is definitely customer service oriented and all very good.
We will go back soon!!

Received a phone call day before to let us know the lagoon was out of action, made the place look terrible. Room was way under expectations and pretty tired looking. TV didn't work, but fixed straight way on request. Spa bath looked as if it had been patched up.

From the time we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The staff are friendly & efficient, the rooms are great, and as always, the pillows are amazing! I am going to get some for our home! The breakfast has to be seen to be believed - delicious. We will be back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rocket1 Eco friendly not guest friendly
On opening the door to our room the temp was 27 degrees and the room felt very very stuffy. We opened the window but this shut the air conditioner off. We closed the window and one hour later the room had reached a reasonable temp.
We left to go to the pool and on returning the room was back to 27 degrees with another one hour wait until it cooled down.
Every time we left the room...........same story.
Feeling thirsty I went to grab a bottle of water and nearly died of shock. At $9.50, I could have bought a bottle of wine for that.
Went to get some ice and you guessed it the ice machine was out of action. Checked the floor above and the floor below..........same story. I guess the ice machines are not eco friendly. I ordered some ice from room service which arrived one hour later. By this time I vowed never to return.
Not good enough Starwood !!!
Suggestion: Install a guest override on the room air conditioner, fix your ice machines and offer your bottled water and Internet for free, your room rates more than cover those costs.

I have been coming here since the hotel opened and couldn't see how they could make the hotel any better, but the new decor and furniture is outstanding and modern and the staff as always very helpfull and polite. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tris1983 Slow start that got better by the day
Had a bit of a shady start with one staff member who had no idea of customer service, have no idea of the name of the staff memvber in question she was meant to be our waitress in the restaurant on friday night only time we saw her was when she placed two glasses of water at the table never asked if we would like drinks and then when I went to pay the bill she handed it to me as i queued at the counter to pay. The food and beverage manager on duty was informed immediately by other staff that I had an issue and resolved it straight away and that made up for the poor service. The next morning the Assistant Food and Beverage manager was on the next morning and he also could not apologise to much for the service and you could see how sincere he was with his apologies. it is a great hotel and the Spa Studio rooms are very spacious with a great view over the resort, Stayed in room 2102 and could see out onto the beach front through a side window. Will definately be back there soon and I only ever choose starwood hotels where ever I go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 13alkay The hotel would have to be one of the only hotels in a city that makes you feel like you are in the middle of an oasis
The room was just perfect for our stay
The food and service was second to none
The environment was extremely relaxing
The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful
We enjoyed staying within the confounds of the hotel and were more than happy not to leave

Recently stayed at this hotel, found it to be overpriced compared to where we would normally stay & what is included in the price.. Hotel is in need of upgrading & property needed updating (outside pools/pool facilities). Certainly tired looking

If you want a fabulous resort, in a great location, with gorgeous views and sensational comfort and the ocean right on your doorstep then this is for you. And you don't need your passport or a day of traveling to get there. It was fantastic!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sharmi I did not have a good sleep
- The staff were great
- The dining was fantastic
- The pool was truly joyous
- I dint have sleep because of the aircon in the room. It was too noisy. I was given an option to shift to a similar room which wasnt of much help.
