The hotel

This is the first of the Centara resorts in the UAE, and they’ve pulled out all the stops to create the ultimate family themed family resort to make your dream holiday come true. Inspired by mythical Thai and magical Arabian adventures, everything has been taken into consideration when it comes to suiting family trips, with interconnecting rooms and bunk beds available for all family sizes, and there’s even a childrens spa to sit alongside the adults one, so they can have their fair share of pampering too – after all, it’s tiring going down the water slides all day long! If you want to add that extra touch to your stay, upgrade to a Mirage room for access to the Family club lounge, complete with family-friendly check-in, a kids’ play area and snacks throughout the day to keep you all full. It will be hard to pull them away from the adventure water park for food though, complete with water slides, high ropes, and a lazy river – it’s unlikely you’ll see much of them in the day, especially with the E-zone too. If this is the case, sneak away to the rooftop bar and enjoy a sundowner cocktail or a spot of shisha before dinner, overlooking the Arabian gulf.

We spent amazing holidays as a family of 5. The main buffet is Thai and not international but it's delicious and we discovered many new things. It's complicated to get a sunbed near the pool or the beach but overall it was a great experience. We recommend this hotel.

We stayed for 10 days in a family bunk bed room Pros Lots to do, staff are friendly, beautiful and new Cinema on the beach and games rooms are fantastic. Kids club is great. Staff are friendly and the hotel is absolutely beautiful Cons As it was a new hotel lots of teething problems. Our room cards stopped working 5 times or the swipe machine at door! It was a nightmare, one night we waited 45mins for a technician to let us in around midnight with 3 kids! My son and husband got terrible diarrohea one night, we hadn't left the hotel so it was definitely the food in the restaurant. Asked for some dioralyte and was told they can't give anythng. Long waiting times at breakfast. We preferred the 8th floor breakfast. There is no wardrobe space, just a couple hanging spaces. Cabs are rare but u can use kareem to book taxis My daughter cut her foot in the pool, not sure how, but the first aid room wasn't very helpful. The hotel is remote with nothing else on the island. If you want anything you have to go in a taxi. Honestly it's a fabulous hotel, we will definitely return but they really need to sort out teething problems. When you complain noone really cares, nothing is done quickly. They need a manager on duty to handle concerns or complaints. When we were there they didn't do anything for my husband's diarrohea or the inconvenience of our keys/keypad not working. Just said next time u come u can have an upgrade. Read less

We visited the Centara Mirage Beach Resort during April (UK Easter hols) for 10 days. It was very busy but a fabulous hotel. We have 7 yr old twins, the pools were perfect for us, lifeguards everywhere, all pools within the girls’ depth, helpful staff, a comfortable room and lovely food. We found the main buffet restaurant hideous, so we ate breakfast at the sheesh or sands restaurant everyday, which was fabulous. The Sands pool staff kept us fed and watered everyday, with amazing pizza/burgers/cocktails etc, don’t know what we would have done without Brian and Thua Ta. We also had Jeevan looking after us towards the end of our stay. For evening meals we ate at either Sheesh or Sands. Followed by popcorn on the beach with a movie. All staff were helpful, especially Aju in concierge, when needing info. We booked a trip which didn’t quite go to plan, so the hotel moved heaven and earth to rectify the problem! Thank you Joy and Aju for your help. Plenty of taxis available outside the hotel for a trip to the cities. One major downside is the sun bed scrap everyday! Which is my reason for 4 stars and not 5. You need to set an alarm to get up early and join the queue if you want sun beds for the day. Security were helpful and would remove towels from bed hoggers that never returned. Otherwise a cracking, upcoming. Hotel. Read less
