|About these ratings|
This tropical-themed MGM establishment experienced a full-on makeover; it now features a luscious palm tree forest, tumbling waterfalls and peaceful lagoons, not to mention an expansive aquarium shared by 90 or so species of fish. Even the renowned Mirage volcano earned a few more special effects. Plus, many travelers praise the Mirage's central-Strip location.
The casino itself is very atmospheric, and Frommer's claims that this is one of the most enjoyable places to gamble: "Facilities include a plush European-style salon privé for high rollers at baccarat, blackjack, and roulette; an elegant dining room serves catered meals to gamblers there." However, be prepared to battle the crowds; this is one of the most popular casinos in town.
For the non-gambler, the Mirage has plenty to offer: pool and spa facilities, golf, fine dining, high-end shopping and exciting nightlife. The Mirage also hosts a variety of headlining entertainment acts, including Cirque du Soleil's "LOVE" show and Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat.
