Rated 5 out of 5 by Vicki28 Dinner was below expectations
We stayed for a special occasion and have stayed many times previously, however this time to say we were unhappy about the buffet dinner was an understatement. We could not fault the service however the food was at best, substandard. Having been before we know the standard but on this occasion it fell far below. We stayed for the convenience of not having to leave the resort, but after having to pay so much $ for two plates each (one of which was dessert) we will consider staying elsewhere next time unfortunately. Which is a shame because the Sheraton mirage is a beautiful resort.

This was our second stay at the Sheraton Gold Coast and I have already booked our third. My family and I are truly thankful to the hard working staff members that have at every turn gone out of their way to make my family comfortable and welcome. In particular we would like to thank Jane and Claudia at Terraces Restaurant and also Phejas and Daniel at Pearls bar for being attentive and taking the time to make our stay that little bit more special. I have also handed out some Gold ‘Thank You’ cards and I hope that these staff members benefit in some way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ECEJon Brilliant first stay!
I must agree with many reviewers regarding the resort's location; the huge free car park, the buffet dinner(fantastic fresh seafood!).
I had a nice panoramic sea view room, it's truly fantastic! I was on my own and on a short business visit and it was more than adequate for me.
I stayed in the north side of the resort, it's quite a walk to the gym as it's run as a separate enterprise, it closes quite early at 8pm weekdays and earlier over the weekend, however you could do a nice jog along the beautiful Main Beach front, absolutely wonderful!
Ruby from reception is exceptional, her knowledge and recommendations of local shops, restaurants, shopping venues are spot on. When you have Ruby, no concierge is required!
I shall be back with my family soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Terri27 Another great wedding anniversary at Sheraton
33rd wedding anniversary spent at Sheraton which we are trying to make a tradition.Had fantastic time only disappointment was I did request a certain room (SENTIMENTAL REASONS)which I do know couldn't be guaranteed but we were given a room on the opposite side as last year.Didn't accept but receptionist did try her hardest to accommodate us but to no avail and we accepted cheaper room on ground floor which had nothing to look at except lawn and hedge.Got over my disappointment overnight but would never stay on ground floor again.Hopefully next year I can book the room I requested or one nearby.Also thank you Helen in Guest Services for sorting out a small problem we had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KRhed82 A Great Stay
This hotel is one of the few locations in the area that offers beach access. The pool area is also very nice with bar service. Though I was here on a leisure trip, they have great accommodations for me to keep in touch with my office (Wi-Fi at the pool). The staff was extremely helpful with planning activities throughout our stay. Very close to shops and restaurants as well as a short bike ride to Surfer's Paradise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vanessa11 The best hotel on the gold coast
This is a great hotel right on the beach at Main Beach. The resort is spotlessly clean, the rooms are spacious, the bed comfortable, the grounds are gorgeous and there is a huge pool. The resort is set on a patrolled beach. Free parking and free Wi fi. The staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. The food at Terraces restaurant was really superb. Could not ask for more and will definitely return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kylekyle Another great stay
This must have been my sixth or so stay since the refurbishments. The staff were still very friendly and helpful. Very prompt service received at Terraces. and thank you to housekeeping for replacing towels and wiping the wet bathroom floor during turn down service.
Just a few minor points:
1. Noticed that there were no mouth wash in the bathroom amenities this time, yet I spotted them in the housekeeping cart.
2. The tube of body lotion in the bathroom amenities was past its expiry date.
3. This was my second time staying as SPG Gold, but I've never been offered an enhanced room at check-in as part of the Gold benefits.

This is our second visit the first was in a Lagoon Terrace Room which was lovely and it was my husbands birthday and a beautiful birthday cake from the hotel was greeting us in the room, we thought this was great, this time we had an ocean view room and once again we had a wonderful time. Our room was amazing I woke up at 4 a.m to watch the sunrise over the ocean......I did not want to go home. Each visit we have had a very relaxing time, this time we had cocktails round the beautiful pool. We can't wait to come again. All the staff were friendly and helpful too which all added to our stay. We highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by discoverer thanks for the effort
Spent two beautiful nights on the beach at Mirage.
After a minor mix up with room preferences our manager personally bought the keys to our new room while we were having a relaxing cocktail in the bar.
The staff member who took my call obviously realised what our issue was and it was fixed within half an hour with a smile and a handshake. We will be back..what a beautiful room by the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by robbo no better conference destination
The team @ Marina Mirage took a very taxing 5 day conference from what could have been tiring and yuck to a really enjoyable time.
I spoke with colleagues at the airport and we all agreed there was nothing more which could have been done
Thanks guys :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by expectbetter Well you asked for feedback...
There appears no benefit to being SPG. No favours at check-in, room not ready until 3pm. We requested King bed and received twin ?queen?double. A cold night, and we discover the A/C not working at 10pm. Feedback forms in the room had scribble all over them. Please don't bother responding, my wife not interested in returning.

I continue to return to the Sheraton Mirage Gold Coast as they always make me feel special and well looked after. The staff always go above and beyond expectations and the level of service is exceptional. Coupled with the beautiful beach and glorious sunshine, is there a better place to unwind and be pampered?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jepnann1 Great resort.....wonderful staff
We had a lovely time .... many thanks for a great experience. The location of the resort was terrific as it was close to everything . the room we stayed in was spotless on arrival and was religiously serviced daily . the grounds impeccably maintained but what we found most pleasing is the teams professionalism and enthusiasm. nothing is of trouble and they always have a smile on their faces . The restaurant team is 1st class and pool bar team is also equally impressive. The quality of the meals are also worth mentioning. We normally go overseas to be pampered , good to know we don't have to travel that far get the same wonderful experience ........
Thank you all so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SammyJ Beautiful hotel in a superb location.
From the moment you enter the lobby you know that you have chosen a truly 5-star hotel. The pool is excellent and has a bar also! It is located right on the beach which is ideal. Also ideal is the very short walk to the boutiques and restaurants of Marina Mirage. We would book again with no hesitation.

This hotel is brilliant in layout, facilities and service. Its what you expect when you stay with Sheraton to be made to feel welcome as if you are home.
One of my favourite Sheratons I would recommend a stay any time.

Had an overnight stay and arrived for Father's Day breakfast and unfortunately the line was very long from external persons wishing to dine. We are a Star Privileges Member, we did not book (no advice received at check-in that we should book even though we said we would be having the buffet). We also were told we could not have the 2for1 breakfast without our temporary letter or SP card in hand. Hotel would charge us and then reimburse once provided Membership confirmation. We ended up leaving and eating at a Cafe in Beenleigh on our way home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bearsinmelbourne Great Location with Beach Access
My family & I have just come back from a very relaxing stay. The only issue arose when we checked out. The hotel "holds" onto money which more than covers one's stay but wouldn't allow us to use this held amount to paying our bill (the bill was $452 & they held onto $620+) & then just reversing the difference. We managed to sort it out by calling our bank in Melbourne as computers located at reception wouldn't allow us to access internet banking via a FireFox wall. This caused us to nearly miss our flight back to Melbourne and this was stressed to the receptionist who was unsympathetic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pesto Renewed Enthusiasm
We have stayed at this resort several times, but not for two years as it was really needing a renovation, this has now occured. Its a great location, fantastic for kids with a passion for the pool, and has a brilliant array of dining options, both on property and across the foot-bridge. Beachfront access is immediate if you so choose. The true highlight is the staff, their keeness to ensure nothing is too hard is more consistent with a US property than an Australian.
A sudden need to execute some contracts for work on short notice including scanning and emailing was handled without drama by the front-desk team. So often in other situations this becomes a drawn out affair, not here and it is appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NathaenM We Can Not Stay Away
We just can not stay away!
Myself and my wife are frequent stayers at this property, and each time it just keeps getting better and better and...............................BETTER! Our stay from 13/6-16/6 was to celebrate my birthday. Upon arrival and finding a park in the large free underground carpark we ventured up to the lobby and soaked up the relaxation as we looked out of those huge panoramic windows across the pool and out to the ocean. Just fantastic. Check-in was quick, efficient and the Duty Manager Thomas even went of his way to come outside and welcome us back (thanks Tom.....was great to see you too!).
Upon arrival at our room (3100) there was a birthday surprise of balloons etc waiting for me which my wife had organised through the team here. She told me the story of how she did it and was so excited that what was left more than exceeded her expectations! A bottle of champers was waiting in which we indulged sitting on the ledge of our wide opening window overlooking the surf.
Now to the room........like most here at the resort, clean, open, spacious. What more could one ask for? The Sheraton beds are so comfy that sleeping is not a problem! We went for dinner at Terraces and like always brilliant. When I made my way to the carvery Chef Rob was already slicing my pork and preparing my crackling.......ummmmmm maybe we come here too often if they know me that well! (and keep on coming back we will!). The staff in the restaurant prepared a small tasting plate of desserts and a candle to wish me happy birthday! Just before our departure the F and B Manager Mr Elakis came and wished me a happy birthday and invited us to the refurbished Pearls Bar for a cocktail. Let me say the rejuvenated Pearls Bar is brilliant! A diverse range of seating from barstools to lounges....it was great. The local mixologist David created us two drinks which were amazing. So amazing we made Pearls a regular stop each night we stayed!
Breakfast at Terraces like always was great. It's worth noting that if you are a SPG member that the prices are heavily discounted during the winter months. Well worth it!
From Friday 21/6 we stayed at the resort for another two nights to celebrate our anniversary. This time we were allocated room 2051. This room had a resort view and was extremely spacious! Once again the bed was a dream and the room well equipped with everything we needed. Thank you so much for the champagne to help us celebrate! We again went to Terraces for dinner. Due to the rotating menu there was no pork this time! Oh well, the ham was still yummmmmmy. John, our waiter was right on to it. He didn't miss a beat and I over heard others in our area also comment on his nature and attitude. Well done John!
As part of our anniversary I treated my wife to a spa experience at the Golden Door. She said it was absolutely amazing and I am glad that it was money well spent!
It is worth noting that the lagoons are currently undergoing a major refurbishment. However, staying consecutive weekends it is easy to see the progress that has been made and it will be great to see the finished product on our next visit in October. Though the facilities are wonderful, it really is the warm nature of the staff that put this place into a whole new category. Some may say....."well that's their job"......in that case, they do it super well!
Thanks again team.

I ordered room service.
I asked for some tissues as BOH left two tissues in the box in the bathroom.
He immediately tried to instruct me to ring house keeping, pass the responsibility.
This appears a bit bureaucratic for a 5 star hotel.
Also the toilet was not cleaned properly twice. This may be due to the choice of toilet bowl design.
As a alcoholic i find it discrimitory that i pay more for a Mocktail than for a full strength scotch. Also Non alcohilic beer appears to be a novelty in Australian hotels. Amercian cruise ships have a choice of three on board ships????

We have stayed at Mirage in past as a small family of 3 & have enjoyed both experiences. I'd like a bit more room to move in the room but I guess the amount of space is standard for a hotel situation. The Mirage provides an elegant environment featuring water views from in many directions. The restaurant buffet breakfast offers an excellent choice and gorgeous surroundings of fountains and views of the many lagoons outside. I'm sure we will stay again if in Goldie. Deb

Loved every moment at Sheraton Mirage. My husband and i chose the Dinner, Bed and Breakfast package.-we enjoyed a sumptuous buffet dinner whilst surrounded by magical ambiance of Terraces dining room and foyer .That evening we relaxed in our spacious Spa Studio room, which featured a lovely private courtyard area which overlooked manicured garden and lawns. Next morning we walked through the beautiful pool area- and experienced the delicious breakfast in the Terraces Restaurant. We can't wait for our next opportunity to visit the Sheraton Mirage !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jack Excellent Service
I stayed at this property last weekend and having stayed there plenty of times, you always feel special. One of the very few hotels in Australia that still provide you with the good old fashioned 5 Star service.
Renovations on this property is fantastic. Restaurants are very good..the facilities are the best in Gold coast.
Did anyone make me feel special... Yes..the guest service person (Helen) was the most helpful services staff I have come across since quite a while. I am an SPG Platinum and Hilton Diamond member and therefore have stayed in quite a few properties. Helen exceeded my expectations by a mile.
The one less than perfect experience during this stay was the lack of recognition as a platinum member. While they upgraded me to another type of room...they also upgraded a non spg member to the same type of room as i was.
I will definitely go back there again.
