Bottom Line

An elder statesman among the Strip's mega-resorts, the upscale, 3,044-room Mirage Hotel & Casino relies less on thematics and a booze-fueled party scene for its appeal -- opting instead to emphasize comfortable (if small and worn) rooms, an enormous pool, diverse dining options, and plenty of entertainment. Attractions, from a giant volcano with a nightly fire-and-water show to a dolphin habitat, are aimed at a multigenerational clientele. Rooms are starting to show their age a bit, but the spacious, multi-bedroom villas are a decadent choice for those who want to splurge, with backyard pools and lots of modern amenities. For nicer and larger rooms, guests might want to consider the Venetian, which is suitable for both couples and families.

The Mirage Hotel & Casino

Scene

Giant upscale casino hotel with atrium-style lobby and tons of kid- and adult-centric features

One of the first mega-resorts to hit the Strip, the Mirage opened in 1989, the first project for now-famed casino developer Steve Wynn. Somewhat of an elder statesman of the Strip, the 3,044-room Mirage goes relatively light on the glitz, though it certainly doesn't spare entertainment, with a resident Cirque du Soleil show, and a volcano feature at its entrance that "explodes" hourly every night. The lobby is equally attractive, particularly during the day, thanks to a 90-foot-tall garden atrium full of tropical greenery. Overall, The Mirage is among the more family-friendly destinations in Las Vegas, with entertainment for all ages, though there are a few features, notably a topless pool, that might deter families from staying here.

Location

At the north end of The Strip, across the street from the Venetian and Harrah's

The hotel is located on the densely packed stretch of hotel-casinos known as the Las Vegas Strip, between the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace and Treasure Island, and across the street from the Venetian and Harrah's. A free tram takes guests between the Mirage and Treasure Island. Taxis are easy to find at virtually any time of day or night. A generally less expensive option is the Deuce, a double-decker bus that runs up and down the strip 24 hours a day. There's also a monorail system, which stops at MGM Grand, Bally's/Paris, Flamingo/Caesars Palace, Harrah's/The LINQ, the Las Vegas Convention Center, the Westgate, and the SLS Las Vegas. McCarran International Airport is about a 10-minute drive away. Ride-share services such as Uber and Lyft currently operate in Las Vegas.

Rooms

Contemporary rooms with solid amenities, plus luxe villas with private pools

Starting at 394 square feet (36.6 square meters), rooms are a decent size, if a bit smaller than other properties in this price range, but they pack in plenty of thoughtful touches that enhance comfort and maximize the spaces. They're tastefully decorated with a contemporary, dark palette including a deep-red, brown, and tan color scheme, patterned carpets , and beige and gray accents, though some rooms are showing sings of wear and tear. Amenities include iPod docks, 42-inch flat-screenTVs, electronic safes, well-stocked minibars, and free Wi-Fi, but no coffee- and tea-making facilities. The bathrooms are smallish at 45 square feet (a touch over four square meters), but perfectly functional. Shower/tub combos come standard and are kept in good condition.

Guests can upgrade to the Tower Deluxe rooms on the 24th or 25th floors, which include soaking tubs and separate walk-in showers. Suites range from the 812-square-foot (75.4-square-meter) Mirage Suite with two bathrooms and a whirlpool hot tub, to the 1,714-square-foot (159-square-meter) one- or two-bedroom Hospitality suites. For something even more luxurious, two- and three-bedroom villas have private backyard pools and loads of modern amenities such as Apple TVs, iMacs, and iPads, plus private entrances and 24-hour personal chef and butler service.

Features

Large casino, plenty of entertainment, giant pool and adults-only topless pool, and a spa

The Mirage features a wide range of features with a heavy emphasis on entertainment and fun. The casino here is popular, and along with the typical slots and table games, there's also high-limit lounge for big spenders, a 25-table poker room with four different games and "sit-and-go" tournaments, and a 10,000-square-foot sports book with 150 individual viewing screens. Entertainment options include the Cirque du Soleil show "Love," an extravagant circus performance set to Beatles songs, which has been highly successful since its 2006 debut (the soundtrack won two Grammy awards in 2008). Ventriloquist and impressionist Terry Fator, who won the second season of TV's amateur-hour show America's Got Talent, occupies the Terry Fator Theatre, where standup comedians Jay Leno, Ray Romano, and Lewis Black have been known to make appearances.

The pool at the Mirage befits the hotel's stature as an upper-tier Vegas mega-resort (which is to say: it's gigantic and full of waterfall features), with beautiful greenery, luxury cabanas, a nearby bar, and a cafe. There's also a separate adults-only pool, Bare, where women are allowed to go topless. It offers drink service from bikini-clad servers and live DJs play the latest in pop and hip-hop. However, it costs extra to access.

The spa offers a variety of treatments, along with steam rooms, saunas, and whirlpools. A salon and huge, well-equipped fitness center offering fitness classes are also here. Dolphin Yoga is available at the on-site dolphin habitat, which offers several other experiences, including painting with the dolphins. Note that there's a daily resort fee added to rates here, which is typical for Las Vegas area hotels. Wi-Fi is free throughout the property.

All-Inclusive / Food

There are also a Starbucks, cafe, and a frozen yogurt place, and room service is available 24/7.
