The Miragem is a great escape away from it all. My family stayed last year (2013) for a week. We had 3 teenagers and a 12 year old to keep happy and they absolutely loved it. The beach is right in front of the hotel and they had the freedom to ramble around the town which felt safe. ( they did not have any negative experiences out and about). We took the train to Lisbon another day for a flavour of city life. The train station is also very near be hotel and travels along the coastline.
Our rooms had a magnificent view of the sea and the food was delicious. The teenagers even got up for breakfast after being out late the night before...... That's says something! The Miragem has a terrific state of the art gym which the teenagers used some days. It is free for hotel guests. There are fitness classes of all types for those needing to let off that extra bit of energy built up from practicing "extreme relaxation all day" I went to a yoga class one day for a stretch which felt great. The infinity pool is on the 3rd floor and overlooks the sea. What I love about this was that you are not forfeiting the view of the ocean to have the comfort of the pool, with sun loungers, day beds and umbrellas. Staff at the pool are extremely helpful and will find you a lounger, provide fresh towels and are there all day if you need them.
This year (2014) my husband and I were celebrating our 25th Anniversary. We wanted to go somewhere convenient( from Cork) as we only had 3 nights without children! We searched online but kept coming back to "the Miragem". We were so glad we made the choice again as the Hotel standards and friendliness of the staff are hard to beat. We were greeted with a "congratulations on your wedding Anniversary", had champagne, port and chocolates in our room and extra touches like petals on the bed chocolates on the pillow just made it that little bit special. The room again had a balcony with a direct view of the ocean which was beautiful to sit on for a drink in the evening. Management and staff are all are professional and competent and go out of their way to make the stay an experience to remember. The the attention to detail in the open areas of the hotel is tasteful, lending a sense of luxury and calmness. There are all sorts of nice extras during the day (better to experience yourself as these nice touches make a difference). The hotel is Five Star.... but does not have the stuffiness that might be associated with this level. Instead it is friendly and open ....and special. The break away was short but very sweet and I left us wanting more again when leaving....I will have to come up with another excuse to return!
The hotel strives for excellence and in my opinion achieves it and goes beyond.
