After a brief time, we continued on our way to the main area. This is where the professionals were working. I was kind of disappointed since they all were still sculpting. Guess tomorrow is when they will be finished. I think they are working throughout the night to finish them, but I think I got some good pictures anyway.

After dinner, we stuck around for a couple of hours for visiting. I played a couple of games of FARKLE and Bob visited with Larry Gordon.
Now it's time to relax and get ready for bed. Tomorrow is going to be a busy day starting with breakfast, then a membership meeting.

Tomorrow the rally continues with lunch and dinner. Afraid that these next few blogs will not be very informative with few or no pictures (like today). It's kind of hard to embellish eating, which is mostly what we do at this gatherings. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews La Mirage Condominiums Port Aransas
I keep seeing these bad reviews on La Mirage. My family and I have stayed every year at la Mirage for 10 years. Yes, the building is in need of paint but not during the busiest time of the year. I spoke with some of the staff and complemented them on how much better the property it starting to look.
Great condo and pool
We were there August 1-4 2004
We had a great time. Each Condo is owned by diferent people . The one we were in was along way to the beach, But it was in great shape . The furniture was beautiful. Large Tv,dvd -vcr player ,cordless phones. Great beds. Just wish we had taken our own pillows, theres was flat. Our condo was exalent. The pools and hot tubs were sparkaling clean. I would recomend it to a friend. But next year we will stay in one close to the beach.
My family and I just returned from a long weekend at La Mirage, and I have to say that I was mildly disappointed. I'd done all my research on the internet on condos in the Port A area and this one seemed to be nice and fairly priced. The pictures that are shown on the net must be taken from quite a distance away because the resort is worn and in need of a paint job & repairs in a lot of spots. The assigned parking was ok since it was covered and out of the sun but it was quite a walk to the condo with baggage and the kiddos. There are rolling baggage racks provided, but if you're there on a busy weekend--good luck finding one. Inside the condo, the wallpaper was peeling in some spots, the decor was a little cheesy, the shower was dark, the applicances were old but worked ok, and the furniture was tearing at the corners. The table & chairs out on the balcony were also old and falling apart so we couldn't even go sit out there and enjoy the view. These were all of the disappointments, but on a positive note--when you go with family, you make lemonade out of lemons. The boardwalk to the beach was nice & they had a shower area for you to rinse the sand off before you head back to the rooms. The condo itself was very spacious ( we were a group of 6) and the washer & dryer came in handy when we wanted to pack up clean clothes to take home. The staff was what looked like a group of high school girls but they were friendly enough and gave us directions into town to the IPG grocery store and to the aquarium in Corpus. All in all--we had a great time and the drive into town Port A was a straight shot just a few miles away. Word to the wise, if you're planning on cooking, bring as much as you can from home. The prices on food, paper goods, and condiments at the little local store in Port A was a lot higher than HEB. They also tell you that beach loungers and umbrellas are available at the beach on a first come first served basis, but every time we went down there the "beach boy" was no where to be found and all the chairs and unbrellas were chained together. There always seemed to be plenty--just no one to unlock the chains to hand them out. I would consider staying here again if there were no other vacancies, but I think next time we'll try a newer resort.
La Mirage is a great family vacation spot
We had a great time at La Mirage. The beach was a bit dirty but it had been storming. The Port Aransas area is not as crowded as other areas on the gulf, and it is less inhabited - more natural. La Mirage had a nice 3 bedroom condo to fit our family of 7, and 2 pools with 3 hottubs. Several outdoor grills are also available. Take a cooler, buy some groceries at the friendly local market, buy a good paperback, and take the kids to the beach where you can lay out in a chair with an umbrella which is provided at no extra cost. It was a great, stress free week!
Last minute trip to Port A decided. In the past have stayed at Port Royal and the SandCastle. Of the three, the Mirage would be low on the list. Generally the unit was clean and appliances worked but everything was starting to show its age. Finding your parking spot (at night) was a chore. AC condensor drain was in the shower ceiling so when the AC ran, the condensor unit drained/dripped into the tub. Beach access was good. Not the worst place on Port A but not the best either. For the price - not bad.
I chose these Condos because of the very favorable reviews on tripadvisor. I may have gotten the last condo that was available but there problems that all condos would have. Don't ever rent condo #300 -- it has never been renovated and the bathroom floor was awful. The bathroom had extensive water damage in the floor and there was mold and the flooring was soft from the damage. The toilet even was not solid due to the damaged floor. I did see in other condos and most were in better shape -- had new tile or wood floors. However, this is not a fantastic resort like the reviews made it seem. The lobby is the size of a Motel6 and there is peeling paint in all of the painted areas.
We love La Mirage in Port Aransas
Our family has been going to Port Aransas for many years and have almost always stayed at La Mirage. It is relaxing and there are many opportunities to be entertained as well. Each time we stay our condo is well equipped and clean. Having a washer and dryer is a real plus and the staff is always very helpful and polite. The grounds are well kept.
We will, no doubt, be staying at La Mirage in the furure.
Can't wait to go again
We wanted to get away for a nice stress free week and La Mirage made that possible. They have a wonderful staff. I look forward to another week at least if not a couple of days.
My family and I went to Port Aransas this fall. We had a great time. The weather was fantastic. We stayed at La Mirage Condomiumns. It was a beautiful property. Pool, hot tubs, basketball & volleyball courts. The condo was beautiful and had a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer. We enjoyed the large patio. Look forward to making La Mirage our annual fall break destination.
Relaxing in Texas
A very family friendly place. The heated pool and jacuzzis were nice. Having a washer and dryer in the room saved a lot of hassles with laundry. the office staff was very nice,and helped us find things to do when we were tired of loafing. Very relaxing, just like being at home except for nice weather and a beach. most definitely will return.
