“COMING BACK FOR 6 WEEKS NEXT YEAR”
5.0
20-11-2014
SANDRA G, London, United Kingdom
We stayed for two weeks in May and Sept/Oct this year with Thomsons on a half board basis having previously stayed at the Mogan Valle apartments (next door) about 5/6 times and 3 times previously in Tauritio (Suites and Princess). Don't know why its taken us so long to get here - but we're glad we did. It appears most guests have stayed previously so I wo'nt elaborate on the facilities or food - but we personally enjoyed the attention to detail - staff - beautiful grounds - visiting the burial site - chapel - aviery etc and probably the most important the feeling of safety within the town. We have cut the apron strings with Thomson for our next visit (too inflexible and difficult to book 6 weeks - got to be half board and anti social flights getting in at 3.30AM at Gatwick etc etc). We enjoyed the evening meals but after two weeks found them too repetative and have therefore booked on a B&B basis with the flexability to purchase an evening meal when we want - there are loads of eating places locally. One thing we did miss on the second stay was the afternoon tea up on the 1st floor near reception. On our first visit it was a great venue for meeting people and swapping tips on where to go and how to get there (we used local buses frequently - on time - good value and comfortable). It stopped according to staff because of poor attendance but I'm sure if it was advertised better (in lifts - flyers etc) it would be really popular again - we miss it. We were well looked after on my birthday with a cake - cava at the dinner table and 2 hours for both of us in the spa. Cant wait until June 2016 - thank you all the staff.

Cordial Mogan Playa is a nice, large hotel in the beautiful little place, Puerto de Mogan. Easy to get out walking in the mountains, a lot of nice places to eat out at night, nice little beach. After the tunnels came, it is easy to get there also.

First visit to this hotel, the booking prompted by the more than positive reviews posted on this site. We were not disappointed. The greetings from Lourdes in Reception was warm and welcoming, helped by a glass of champagne. Our room was 1331 - on the third floor and with a marvellous view from the balcony. The room had all that we needed, including a fridge and free wi-fi. We stayed on half-board and the meals were top class. Breakfast offerings included cava, a wide selection of fruit and fruit juices, a variety of breads, cold meats, cheeses and pates, cereals, yoghurts, warm meals and selections of fish. The evening meal was in two sittings and with a choice of eating area, we selected the garden room and stayed at the same table each evening. Again the variety and quality of the buffet was first class, certainly equalling the buffet meals we have experienced on 5 and 6 star cruise liners. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Even though many guests did the usual trick of claiming their sunbeds well before using them we did not find any difficulty in finding a suitable spot on the days we remained in the hotel to enjoy the sun. The hotel grounds were a real delight with tropical plants and flowers. A short walk took us into Puerto with its beach, marina and a multitude of restaurants and friendly bars. A perfect place for a peaceful vacation. We will be following the example of other reviewers and will be returning next year.

This was our second holiday at Mogan Playa. We asked for the same room and was pleased that this request was given to us. The staff in the hotel were friendly and in particular, the reception team were so helpful. The meals in the restaurant were excellent in quality and variety. We asked for a table in the outside part and as soon as one was available it was allocated to us. Overall, an excellent holiday.

This is only our second Tripadvisor review - the first described the horrors of the Rui Clubhotel in Montigo Bay. What a difference! Cordial obviously know the true meaning of such words as WELCOME - QUALITY - SERVICE - TRAINED STAFF - ETC. My wife uses a mobility 'walker' and was somewhat concerned about her ability to get around but this was not a problem as we were giver a room on the second floor situated very close to the dining room, pool and bar. Rather than spell them out I can only support all the compliments paid by the other reviews - especially those addressing the cheerful and very well trained staff and the food. If I don't book again soon for next September I'm not going to get any peace over Christmas ! A very big thank you to all of the Cordial team for making our first of many visits such a joy.

A real pearl for holiday! The hotel surrounded by wonderful tropic garden was a pleasure to stay in! The hotel itself was very clean and tidy. Even the heated pools were clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was very large and there was everything one could wish for. Location of the hotel was splendid, just a short walk from the harbor and the beach with all the restaurants. Courtesy rooms available for late check out, very tidy and functional. Taxi took us half an hour to airport, sunday evening though. Can definitely recommend it and will for sure go back one day!

I went to the Cordial with no great expectations but was delighted with the hotel. Our room had a lovely balcony with great views and the beds were very comfortable. The half board option gives you access to wonderful buffets at breakfast and dinner. All the staff were very kind to all guests and seemed to like everyone whether elderly couples or very small children. The hotel has about 450 species of tropical plants, palm trees and cacti and both pools are surrounded by palms. The food and its sheer variety is exceptionally well done.

We just arrived home after our 6th 2 weeks stay over the last 3 years (2012, 2013 and 2014). We have enjoyed all our stays in this fantastic hotel with a very high standard and service, not to menion the Unique architecture, tropical gardens, all the activities and not at least the very efficient and professional service from the staff and management. And vi have already booked our next 2 weeks stay in spring 2015. We have been in the travel industri all our working life, and have traveled all over the World freequently.

Her kan alle kose seg. Rolig sted, med fest og moro og god underholdning hvis en ønsker det. Spa-avdelingen er veldig bra med flinke terapeuter. Turområdet er så bra. Her kan de fleste klare en tur til fjels, med fantastisk utsikt når en kommer opp. Maten er veldig bra, Nesten så det blir vanskelig å velge. Rent og pent og fine bassenger. Det er en opplevelse å gå rundt på hotellet med så mange kreative stilige ganger, bekker, blomster og tær. Personalet er blide og hjelpsomme. Og så er selve byen Puerto Mogan et herlig sted med mange fine spisesteder og butikker, og stranden er veldig fin for barn og voksne. Og ikke minst, en føler seg trygg i Mogan og godt i varetatt. Vi har prøvd andre steder, men vi sier alltid, NEI, neste gang blir det Mogan.

Dette er et fantastisk hotellanlegg, rent og pent overalt, utrolig vakkert anlegg med planter, trær og bassenger. Flere restauranter på området, og går du gjennom Hagen er du nesten nede i Mogan senter. Luksusfølelse med champagne som start på dagen og start på oppholdet, med en stor frokostbuffe daglig. Anbefales på det sterkeste!

My wife and I have recently returned from a two week holiday at the Cordial Mogan Playa and I can say without any reservation that this is one of the nicest Hotels that we have ever stayed in over many years of holiday travel. This last holiday was our third consecutive visit and we have just booked again for 2015. The Hotel is located in an ideal location within a short walk into the centre of Playa Mogan with its many varied and good class restaurants,pretty walkways, Marina and safe light sandy beach The atmosphere in the evening is quite special in that the Restaurants are all busy and,there are plenty of people enjoying themselves without any rowdyism.. The Hotel is set in extensive gardens with many different varieties of plants,shrubs and trees and everything is immaculate and well cared for. The accomodation is first class and the Staff are all very friendly and helpful. The food is of a very high standard with plenty of variety. It is well worthwhile visiting the Hotel website which shows why I am so enthusiastic about this holiday venue.

La estancia en el hotel ha sido genial, tanto la comida, como la atención de todo el personal en general y no solo a la hora de resolverte las dudas, sino que también con su amabilidad. Las instalaciones del hotel están muy bien cuidadas, y todo el conjunto de la decoración muy bien cuidado. Yo sin duda recomiendo ir a este hotel, yo repetiré seguro.

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed. Situated at walking distance from pittoresque Puerto Mogan port. This hotel not only has an exotic touch but also offers a great number of services. As a cyclist I want to mention the complex houses an office of 'Free Motion Cycling rocks' where you can rent 'top class' bicycles (make an on-line reservation upfront !!). Be aware, you need to be very well trained to explore Gran Canaria by bicycle. Last but not least I would like to mention the restaurant with its overwhelming buffets, great choices of quality food (breakfast and dinner). We appreciated the dinner in 2 shifts: 18:30-19:30 and 20:30-22:00.

October 2014 was our 5th stay in consecutive years and has become an annual event. We both need a restful holiday towards the end of the year, where we will be pampered and fed well. This has been a constant on every occasion. The smiling faces at reception set the tone for the week and all are extremely efficient and pleasant. The staff are pleasant and helpful and the accommodation is spotlessly clean and the gardens are maintained to a high standard. The beauty for us is that there's no learning curve. Once we arrive and drop the cases into our room, we are straight into chill out mode. Such is our happiness with the hotel because we know for sure that we will be treated more like a returning friend than a client. This year we had an evening at the a la carte restaurant "Los Guayres" which is attached to the hotel and had a wonderful meal with excellent service and ambiance. This is well worth a visit if you are celebrating something special. To round off my review, we'll be making our annual pilgrimage to Cordial Mogan Playa once again in 2015 and already looking forward to our 6th stay

The best hotel I have been to. Fantastic service, excellent food and nice rooms. This was our 2nd stay here at Cordial Mogan Playa. The staff is very friendly. We arrived at 02.30 am since the plane was 12 hours delayed. In the middle of the night, the reception asked if we were hungry, and offered to get us something to eat. That's was I call service.

We had a wonderful 10 days at the Cordial Playa Mogan in early October and we most definitely hope to return. The layout of the hotel is superb, the food, facilities & gardens are excellent. All the staff are charming and cannot do enough for you, the name 'cordial' is very appropriate. There were children at the hotel when we visited and we did not find them a problem at all. Looking forward to our next visit. Playa Mogan is a charming little town with lots of nice restaurants, it is not over-commercialised and I hope it stays that way.

What better recommendation can you get for any hotel than to see how many holiday makers return time and time again. This was our fourth visit, testimony itself as to the quality of the hotel. Everyone is welcomed with a smile and a glass of bubbly or soft drink. The check in is quick and efficient and a porter provided to take your luggage to your room. We had a room overlooking one of the 2 pools which we enjoyed because of the vista provided but it can get a little noisy at times so if you are looking for somewhere totally quiet then perhaps one of the rooms situated between the pools would be more suitable. The rooms are spacious and well equipped and ours had a balcony on which we enjoyed G&T's watching the sun setting. The rooms are cleaned daily and bath/hand towels replaced when requested. Large pool side towels can be replaced as and when and you can hire a kettle (money refunded upon return). There is usually an extra pillow on the top shelf of the wardrobe and each room has a TV and tea making facilities. The hotel has beautifully well maintained gardens and water features. The whole of the hotel is wheel chair friendly and can be navigated without encountering any of the few steps that are there. For the first time we had four generations of our family staying at this hotel ranging from 8 to 85 years old. We went in the childrens holiday period so there were more children around than normal. We struggled to get our 8 year old granddaughter out of the pool and when we did she got involved in lots of other activities like making paper broomsticks, treasure hunts, making special cookies and pumpkin carving. she missed more activities than she actually participated in. Every evening at 8pm there was a 'mini disco' with games, music and 'Carlos' the caterpillar. This was followed by the adults entertainment which varied in standard from a brilliant quartet of professional gymnasts and a calypso band to a rather amateurish version of 'mamma mia'. There is a super market opposite the hotel and an open market in the port on Saturdays. The walk from the hotel to the port has the slightest of gradients and takes about 10 minutes - even my 85 year old mother in law with bad knees managed it with consummate ease. There are a good variety of shops and restaurants in easy reach. The problem is that once you have eaten at the hotel you do not feel hungry for anything other than a slight snack. The breakfast starts at 7.30am and we were still there after 10.30am. There is everything you could possibly want from a vast variety of cereals, fruit, soft drinks, teas, coffees, and continental breakfasts. All the hot food is cooked to order. For the alcoholics there is even Vodka for bloody Mary's and Cava available. You just get what you want, when you want. The evening meal has two sittings. The first is from 6 to 7.30 and the 2nd. from 8.30 to 9.45pm. There are dedicated chefs who freshly cook 3 choices of fish and meats separately. The menu changes daily. There was hake, sole, cod, swordfish and many other varieties of fish. The meats included beef, chicken, turkey, fillet steak, lamb chops, lamb, suckling pig, veal, rabbit and many more. There were 2 soups daily, salads and vegetables and even a children's menu. The only thing that they do not have is fresh cream (it is all synthetic due to the heat). The adults as well as the kids loved the chocolate fountain and 4 varieties of ice cream. My favourites were the Danish pastry dunked in the chocolate fountain and banana ice cream with a banana liqueur (there were another 2 option of liqueurs available) poured over the top. If you really want to indulge yourself then a trip to the a la carte restaurant 'Los Guayres' is a must. Although this is an exclusive restaurant each hotel guest gets 15 euros deducted from their bill to compensate for missing their normal meal. The staff make you feel at home and you can eat inside or out (which is still indoors as it remains within the compound of the building). I cannot find fault with anything at this hotel. I have read reviews where people have said it is unsuitable for children. All I can say is ask my 8 year old granddaughter and she will disagree. Unbelievably I have read where people have criticized the food. All I can say to that is ask any one of the four generations in our party and they will all disagree with them to such an extent that after his first visit my son wants to return again with his daughter. That is the effect it has on you. I had a memorable birthday here and would stake my reputation on recommending this hotel. Special praise must go to Christian who organised many events to make my birthday complete. Thanks Christian to you and all your staff. I look forward to my next visit.

Der Name der Hotelkette "CORDIAL" = herzlich, freundlich wird hier von allen Mitarbeitern gelebt. Wir waren schon in einigen Hotels (auch höherpreisigen bzw. gehobeneren Häusern) zu Gast, aber dies ist das Beste was wir bis jetzt erlebt haben. Die Mitarbeiter aller Abteilungen waren überaus freundlich, hilfsbereit und entgegenkommend und sprachen neben spanisch auch englisch und deutsch. Im gesamten Hotel sind die Aussen-und Innenbereiche sehr sauber und sehr gepflegt. Beschädigungen an öffentlichen Einrichtungen wurden sofort beseitigt bzw. repariert. Zwei kleinere Beanstandungen in unserer Suite (defekter TV und defekte Toilettenspülung) wurden innerhalb von 10 Minuten zur vollsten Zufriedenheit beseitigt. Die Junior-Suiten verfügen über ein Wohnzimmer und separaten Schlafraum, jeweils mit Zugang zum Balkon bzw. Terasse und ein großes Badezimmer mit Badewanne und separater Dusche. Im Bad findet man/frau Bademäntel, Körperpflegeartikel (Duschgel, Lotion, Kamm usw.). und einen mal nicht angeketteten recht leistungsstarken Föhn. Der Wohnraum und der Schlafraum verfügen über getrennt regulierbare Klimaanlagen. Weiterhin gibt es ein Flat-TV (mit ca. 9 deutschen Sendern), Minibar-Kühlschrank und ein Miet-Safe. Auf dem Balkon bzw. Terasse befinden sich neben einem Tisch mit zwei Stühlen und Sitzkissen noch zwei Sonnenliegen mit ca. 8-10 cm dicken Wohlfühl-Posterauflagen. Die Zimmerreinigung ist tadellos, den Handtuch- und Bettwäschewechsel bestimmt der Gast selbst. Die zweistöckigen Gebäude mit den Senior- und Junior-Suiten befinden sich im "unteren" Hotelbereich bei der Kapelle und sind herrlich in die üppige, grüne Gartenanlage verteilt. In der weitläufigen Gartenanlage finden sich zwei große Pool-Landschaften, eine im "oberen" Bereich beim Atrium/Haupthaus und ein zweiter im "unteren" Bereich beim "Blauen Haus". Beide Pools sind sehr sauber und es gibt ausreichend viele Liegen mit ca. 8-10 cm dicken Auflagen und Sonnenschirmen. Besonders schön finden wir am unteren Pool die vielen kleineren Liegebereiche, die sich durch die auflockernde Bepflanzung ergibt. An den Pools werden Getränke und Snacks vom Servicepersonal der Poolbar an den Liegen serviert. Die Animation ist abwechslungsreich, aber unaufdringlich. Das Abendessen wird im Haupthaus in zwei Sitzungen eingenommen. Dies mag für manch einen zwar "blöd" erscheinen, aber dafür hat man über die gesamte Urlaubszeit einen fest zugewiesenen Tisch. Dafür entfällt jeden Abend das Gerenne und Gedränge um die besten Tische und am Buffet. Die angebotenen Speisen sind sehr vielfältig und von durchweg sehr guter Qualität. Sicher gibt es immer wieder mal was der ein oder andere nicht mag, aber das ist schließlich Geschmackssache :-) Die Suite-Gäste frühstücken nicht im Hauptrestaurant sondern in einem separaten Frühstücksbereich (im Blauen Haus). Auch hier ist das Speiseangebot sehr vielfältig, schmackhaft und qualitativ hochwertig. An dieser Stelle möchten wir ein besonderes "Danke schön" sagen an die Servicemitarbeiterinnen im Restaurante Sama ("Blaues Haus"): Sarai, Lili, Noelia und Maria Jose, sowie an Monica (ihr Abschieds-Omelett werden wir sicher nie vergessen **Mmmmhhhh lecker!!!!**) Danke für Eure immer überaus fröhliche, freundliche und herzliche Gastfreundschaft, wir haben uns jeden morgen auf Euch und aufs Frühstück gefreut. Abschließend auch ein Danke an alle anderen Mitarbeiter des Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa für einen wunderschönen und erholsamen Aufenthalt bei Ihnen. Wir freuen uns schon auf ein Wiedersehen... und auf den schönen Ort "Puerto de Mogán"

We have been to Cordial Playa in Mogan for a number of years now and we were once again not disappointed. The hotel, food and facilities are all excellent and the staff really cannot do enough for you. We had a family room this year which was excellent with our 14 year old son being delighted to have a room of his 'own'. Mogan itself is a lovely place to staff and I would highly recommend staying at Cordial Playa.

This is a really fantastic hotel. We were greeted with a glass of bubbly by friendly staff at reception and this friendliness was equalled throughout our stay by all staff including management. They are all well trained in customer service and really do enjoy their roles. You will not meet a happier person at his work than Sergio Yaina the bar manager who was constantly on the go. We both celebrated birthdays while we were there and the little extras provided were a very nice touch and really appreciated. The grounds of the hotel are superb and so beautifully maintained. There is a good selection of food and in the evening there is the option of 2 dining times so once you have chosen your sitting you have a guaranteed table for the duration of your stay. The waterfront of Puerto Mogan is delightful with regular ferries to neighbouring resorts and is only a short walk from the hotel. We wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend this hotel.

Arrived late afternoon after 45min transfer from airport. A very friendly greeting from staff with glass of wine/bubbly whilst you check in. Your pool towels are provided right away which are taken with your luggage by such a friendly porter who tells you everything on route to your room, where to find the shade or fun sun. Room overlooked the spa it was clean and spacious no Tea making facility but did find out a little too late that I could have arranged that for a small fee. Grounds are truly amazing a little jungle with waterfalls and stream running past you. Fab swimming pools with a push button service for drinks so no need to leave your lounger.....perfect. Food lots of choice a little spread out for folks with difficulity walking eg: toaster quite a walk away from the marmalade!! just something my mum found awkward (84yo) nevertheless lot of varity. Entertainment there in the evenings. All in all a lovely place for R & R with a stroll down to the harbour, shuttle boat to neighbouring bays just a great destination and I will be back next year

We have recently returned from a holiday in the hotel. We had a suite and stayed on half board plus. The suite had a spacious bedroom , well fitted bathroom with shower and bath ,lounge with a kettle and a fridge and a lovely patio and garden. The breakfast room for the junior suites was light and airy with a lovely outside dining area. Great choice for breakfast with lovely staff. Pool area was superb especially for little ones with a great gentle sloping entrance. Lots of sun beds available. We enjoyed dinner and chose the second sitting . The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful in this hotel. The gardens are superb the hotel is very clean and well maintained and the hotel is in a delightful quiet resort. We hope to return.

Arrived late evening to a very friendly greeting from reception , we thought we had missed dinner as it was 9.40pm but the staff told us to leave our check in and took us down straight away to the restaurant and explained the buffet would be cleared at 9.45pm so take everything we wanted at once and take as long as we wanted to eat and not to rush, which was appreciated . We returned to reception and quickly checked in and porter arrived immediately to take the luggage and show us to our room. Room very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful , so many lovely paths between all the blocks of rooms a pleasure to stroll around. A short stroll through the grounds to reach the beach and pretty Marina. The food choice was excellent and the quality brilliant , I think one of the best buffets we have ever had. Lovely heated swimming pools , one quieter than the other , sun beds so very comfortable , nice thick cushions . All the staff were very pleasant , we will definitely be returning .

The entrance to hotel and reception is amazing with fountains ,waterfalls,relaxing chairs and couches.Warm welcome from receptionist and glass of bubbly before porter takes luggage to room. We were half-board and the array of food is truly amazing at both ends of day. To walk round hotel grounds is well worth the time going through the lush tropical ferns,palms and cacti both inside and out. Cordial is well placed for ten minute walk to the safe curved beach,shops,bars,restaurants and the busy little harbour. All staff throughout were very mannerly polite and helpful. I must thank General Manager and P O for my birthday surprise of birthday cake in room, at dinner a bottle of sparkling wine and free entrance within holiday to Spa for two hours( you must visit the spa for true relaxation with its many pools,steam rooms,saunas,etc). Much appreciated. Truly an experience to be repeated and thanks again to all the hard working staff

Ann D,
I bought this holiday for my wife's 50th birthday, we will return. From the moment you book in there is simply nothing to worry about. I would advise private transfers from the Airport and back too. Room requests are generally adhered to if you have a preference, and late departures are accomodated by either a courtesy shower and changing room, or a modest extra room charge if the hotel can accomodate on the day of departure meanign you can enjoy an extra day hassle free. They are very much into continuous improvement, and take your questionaires very seriously, that is another great sign of a business that cares for it's customers. Some of the evening entertainment is, lets say amusing, though they do try, but the Cuban night is not to be missed. You'll laugh louder after a few cocktials at some of the more dodgy acts. That aside, the most relaxing holiday we have ever had.

Every time we go we worry that something will have changed - but so far, after 5 visits, the only changes are for the better. The food is always excellent, the grounds are both beautiful and always spotless but most of all the service from the friendly, helpful staff is just brilliant. It is nice to see several staff who are still there from the first time we went, I think that says a lot. Watched the new video of the swimming and pole dancing and can't wait to get back again next year.

Stephanie B,
We stayed at The Cordial Mogan Playa a couple of weeks ago and had a lovely holiday there. The location of the hotel is perfect, and a stroll through the beautiful gardens takes you just a stone throw away from the beachfront and beautiful harbour side. We found all of the hotel staff very friendly and helpful. The food was lovely, we stayed half board. We stayed on the fourth floor overlooking the pool, which I would recommend. It's good to be higher up to get the better views. One downside was there are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room, but you can get a kettle and cups from reception so we did this and bought tea/coffee and milk from the supermarket which is conveniently across the road from the hotel. The only other problem we had was a faulty fire alarm going off in the middle of the night outside a room, but this was dealt with. The hotel and grounds are beautiful, well maintained and very clean. We will be returning. We had a lovely holiday and can't wait to go back.

This was our first time to Gran Canaria and to stay in the Cordial Mogan Playa hotel. It is easily the best hotel we have stayed in for this type of holiday. We had half board and the food was excellent both morning and evening with plenty of choices for any taste. The staff were very pleasant and helpful at all times and it appeared that they never stopped cleaning in all areas, including rooms and grounds. The grounds are beautiful with planting which would be the envy of some Botanic Gardens which we have visited in the past. The only complaint we had was that we couldn't get a decent cup of tea. However, we solved that by visiting the excellent coffee shop Bish Bash Bosh which is at the top end of the shopping centre facing the hotel. The owner there (only open 5 - 6 weeks) was more than helpful with local information regarding bus services etc. We had some lovely salad lunches and pots of tea there on a few occasions. Market day in Puerto Mogan was a bit hectic and we also went to the market in Arguiniguin, which didn't seem quite as crowded. Also visited Maspalomas/Melonares which is worth a visit with its lovely sea-front walk and posh shops!! The local Global bus services from the terminus near the Spar supermarket were excellent and, indeed, we discovered that we could have travelled from the Airport to Mogan on a Global bus. This would have been preferable to the 2 and half hour transfer which we endured with Plus Airport (Ryanair's partner). There were about 20 couples on the bus each couple staying at a different location and, of course, we were last to disembark, being the furthest location from the airport. Will not be doing that again!! We don't often return to the same place for a holiday but Puerto Mogan and the Cordial Hotel might just be the exception!!

Stuart R,
Been staying at Sandygolf for the past 12 years, we now holiday there twice each year. Made many friends from the UK and Europe. The complex is very well laid out, well maintained and the people on reception are most helpful. Our main attraction is the pool. Never ever busy, always plenty room, no rush for the sunbeds here, and as of October 2014 the sunbeds have all been upgraded both around the pool and by the bungalows. Very quiet in the evenings, and a perfect holiday for people who like peaceful relaxation. Taxis are always available for a 3 Euro ride to Playa De Ingles and the Yumbo Centre, or down to the Lighthouse at Meloneros. I think returning twice a year for 12 years pays all the compliments needed.

We stayed at Cordial Mogan Playa for a week and absolutely loved it. The hotel is a 5/10 min walk from the beach and the beautiful harbour section of Puerto de Mogan. Based on the other places we saw/visited in Gran Canaria - Puerto de Mogan would definitely be the best place to stay on the island. The old part of town by the harbour is beautiful and there are plenty of great options for eating out. The grounds are very pretty and well-maintained and the rooms are nice - we'd recommend one facing south/west with a pool view. It is quite a large complex but there are two relatively large pools, plenty of space in the buffet restaurant and a huge team of staff to ensure excellent service. The cleaners did a great job with the rooms and I don't think there was one member of staff that didn't say hello and smile at us when we passed. Breakfast was included with our stay and the extensive spread put on for the buffet was very impressive - everything you could think of! Even a selection of sparkling wines and a jug of Bloody Mary! We didn't eat in the buffet restaurant during our stay but the a la carte restaurant was very good and the setting on the veranda was lovely - definitely book and request an outside table! The beach in Puerto de Mogan is relatively small with a few too many sun loungers and umbrellas and not a huge area for swimming, but there are probably lots of other beaches to visit too if beaches are your thing. The watersports here were great and the Friday markets are worth a visit. We'd recommend hiring a car (we used Autoreisen) if you want to explore the rest of the island. A small area around Faro de Maspalomas has loads of great restaurants and there's an open-air cinema nearby. Horseriding just inland of Maspalomas was also good. Overall a brilliant holiday, which we'd definitely recommend!

Stayed again at the Cordial Mogan Playa this Month, and for 2 days in the middle of our stay we caught the tail of the extreme weather which came across the Atlantic, this however, did not spoil our 4th stay in this very good hotel. The food and the varied choices are excellent, the staff are very helpful and efficient, the gardens and surrounding areas are clean and very comfortable. My wife and I, highly recommend this lovely hotel, set in the quiet and peaceful resort.

Hotel Cordial still have some positive surprises! We got a room in another building, and the view became new and beautiful! And the room was excellent! The large cage for the canary birds was empty when we arrived. But it was no close-down, just maintanance and cleaning. Twittering glad birds next day! The bar in the reception has become more popular, a fine place for a starter

We have just returned home after 11 days at Cordial Mogan Playa. The ambience of the hotel is just perfect for a holiday in the sun. The staff are wonderfully happy people. The pools and gardens are full of exotic colourful plants and the spa is so peaceful if you want to hide away and be pampered for a few hours. We don't particularly like buffet meals but the Cordial does them very well indeed. Lunch in one of the pool terrace restaurants is waiter service so that is a great alternative to lounging around all day in the sun. The port, beach and village of Mogan are close by just down a gentle slope.The whole place is so clean. Don't want to sound too enthusiastic or we may not be able to get a room next time we want to book!

Kate_and_Andrew_C,
It is very rare for us to visit the same place twice but the quality of this hotel and the location demanded a second visit. We were not disappointed. Once again the standards of service, maintenance and cleanliness of the hotel were outstanding and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff made it special. While we don't usually opt for half board the quality and variety of food was superb. The option of swapping dinner for lunch also allowed us the option to dine out in the evenings if we chose to. The free evening entertainment was good and varied but not intrusive if you didn't want to participate - the hotel has plenty of quiet spots. The location is only a few minutes walk from the harbour and beach and all of Puerto Mogan's amenities. The sports opportunities are many and varied and if you enjoy diving or challenging road cycling or mountain biking, there are some fantastic routes out of Puerto Mogan and hire facilities in trhe hotel. We will be back again for sure.

Extremely jovial, courteous, with an excellent professional attitude and service. Some members of staff remembered us from our previous visit and very welcoming. Rooms again were spotless and we were in the same block as last time as requested. The food continues to excel. Please go and visit and see for yourselves what a fantastic hotel this is

Food is top quality and if anything too tempting!! The facilities are comprehensive and there is a range of entertainment available, the Oktoberfest lunch was a particular highlight. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to relax and and enjoy an indulgent holiday.

Spent a week celebrating our Silver Wedding Anniversary in the Cordial Mogan Playa and what a hotel! Absolutely brilliant in every way. It's a beautiful, relaxing, hotel surrounded by exotic plants, by the rooms, along the walkways, around the pools, in reception - everywhere! Every single member of staff we encountered was extremely friendly, polite and helpful. There are plenty of sunbeds with lovely thick cushions and towels available. There are two pools, one for adults which always seemed busier than the other pool where there were more children, although mainly under 5s when we were there. There are also places to relax away from both pools. Food was plentiful in the restaurants and of good quality both at breakfast and at dinner (Gents are requested to wear long trousers in the evening for dinner). The beautiful fishing village of Mogan is about 5-10 mins stroll where there are several restaurants / bars overlooking the small harbour. We changed our half board dinner at the hotel to lunch in order that we could eat in Mogan. We also went a couple of times during the day for a wander including venturing to the market on Friday. We went early in the morning and it was therefore not too busy (or hot) although understand it does become very busy at popular times. There is also a small shopping mall opposite the hotel. We ate at Los Guayres, the a la carte restaurant at the hotel on the evening of our anniversary and it was wonderful. There was a slight mix-up with a cake that my husband had ordered and when we mentioned it, they couldn't do enough for us to ensure it didn't mar our evening, resulting in a very memorable and romantic time there! Their Customer Service is something the hotel should be proud of. So, to celebrate a memorable occasion, or for a week of pure relaxation (there is nothing much to do other than to relax - we had a busy day when we had to turn over on the sunbeds!) then we would definitely recommend this hotel. Thank you for helping to make our Anniversary so special.

Our third vist and the four of us ( two couples) have already booked for next October. All the staff are so friendly and helpful, excellent food with so much choice.. Ideal location with a short walk to Porto Mogan which must be the best resort on the Island. Friday early evening is "Meet the Management" with drinks and nibbles. They do this so well and you appreciate how genuine they all are to make your holiday so very enjoyable.

This was my 2nd stay at this hotel after my friend Marnie who has been 4 times recommended it to me. We find it so relaxing even though it is set in a very large complex of what feels and looks like botanical gardens! The pool areas are kept very clean and tidy, the childrens pool is far enough away from the main pool that you don't hear any noise. The staff are very friendly and efficient especially in the dining room. We always got a table in the area we liked to sit for breakfast and were allocated a table for the week for dinner. The food was varied and very good, especially the fish. What I would point out to anyone who wants to drink and party all night, forget it, this hotel and the whole area in the resort close their bars and any music entertainment around 11pm which we liked very much as we got a good night sleep every night. The pleasant 10min walk to the Port area and shops was just right and there are plenty of cafés and restaurants over the little bridge that takes you into little streets like Venice, very pretty. Needless to say we have booked again for next April to see what the Spring is like there!

I have spent my last 8 holidays at the Cordial Playa - Sad, you may say - on the contrary, I shared this same view so took a holiday in another island in the Canaries and after 2 days wished I was back at the Cordial! It's not just the softness of the beds, nor is it the cleanses of all areas, nor is it the genuine friendliness of all staff in every department. It's the overall feeling of caring, complete interest in each customer, a true desire to do the very best by each member of staff. It's like coming home, except its 5 star and sunny! I don't usually post about this hotel, I love it so much that I don't want anyone disturbing the loveliness but now, after all these years, I see how that attitude can damage the profitability of this place and these people that I love so much. So, just get there and love it just as much as everyone who goes there! I estimate that 80% of all customers are return custom! You just can't find anywhere better!

My wife and have just returned from Gran Canaria. The Cordial Mogan Playa is a 4 star rating hotel ,this must be incorrect the service is amazing the staff cannot enough to make sure you stay is trouble free and you just relax and have a great time. As a disabled traveller the access getting around the hotel is so easy ramps to all facilities and lifts to all floors. This is a large complex but never feels that is over crowded the landscaped gardens are just out of this world and tucked away they have there own chapel if you want a quite place to think. The swimming pools have easy access with slops leading down to the water so if like me steps are a problem you can swim with ease and the water is not to deep so great for children .The rooms are large and has all that you will need for your stay, The restaurant is large with a choice of hot and cold food for breakfast and dinner something for everyone, it served buffet style so you can eat as much as you want no need to go hungry. What stands out is that the hole complex inside and out is so clean and well kept. You have easy access to Purto Morgan a small fishing village 5mins away with it's neat houses and harbour restaurants. We will return as soon as possible a real gem

We have just stayed for a week here and found it really one of the best hotels in the Canaries. Everything was of good a standard the staff were very pleasant and helpful and everywhere was clean, the food was really good with lots of choice. There are two pools one more for families and a quiet one which is the one we used. Nice comfortable sun beds and lots of parasols. The main restaurant is buffet with so much choice of everything anyone could find something they would like. Breakfast was the same with lots of choice even a glass of wine and Vodka with tomato juice. Did partake of one glass of wine but thought better of the Vodka but a nice touch. The rooms were very nice we found the beds a bit hard so rang reception and asked for mattress toppers which were brought within minutes and this was 10.30 at night with a smile that's what I call service. Toiletries were provided and replaced everyday towels were nice and white and changed everyday. The entertainment was a bit hit and miss but the entertainment area was a nice place to have a drink anyway. Lots of waterfalls and beautiful gardens a real credit to this hotel. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone. Easy walk to the harbour with nice restaurants and the Friday market is interesting for a walk round.

We have just returned from a fantastic stay at the Cordial Mogan Playa in Puerto de Mogan, Gran Canaria. We had visited Puerto de Mogan as part of a day trip from a Canaries cruise and fell in love with the place so we just had to return. We chose this hotel because of the excellent ratings on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed. We were greeted with a glass of cold champagne on arrival, and this set the tone for the holiday. Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean. We had a balcony overlooking the gardens and the waterfall near the dining area, which was a great place to enjoy a drink in the evening. The staff were very helpful and really wanted to ensure you had a great holiday. My husband is a part time wheelchair user and we found this very wheelchair friendly. There are steps, but there are also slopes so all areas (except I think the bowling alley) were accessible. There are two pools, both with bars and café/restaurant attached. One pool had a sloped access, which was great for children. We were on holiday as a couple but there were activities for children and a children's club. There are amazing gardens which are kept in an immaculate condition, and an archaeological area which you can visit. We were on half board-the breakfast and evening meal were buffet style. There was a great deal of choice for both, including champagne, caviar and smoked salmon for breakfast on occasions! In the evening there was a choice of 3 roasts. fresh fish, pizza, pasta, paella etc. and a huge choice of puddings, including fabulous crepes and a chocolate fountain. We wanted a lazy holiday so did little but lie by the pool. We ventured out into the port area a couple of times, once for the Friday market which is huge-the largest on the island. We also rented a car and ventured to the north (not for the faint hearted)! Our enjoyment of this holiday was helped by amazing weather-in the high 20's-low 30's all week. We met many British guests who return each year and we are already planning our return visit. This may be a 4 star hotel but it beats some good 5 star hotels in the far east that I have stayed in

Just back from our third stay at the Playa de Mogan and were as impressed as at our first visit. This time was in October with other visits being March (for a special and wonderful birthday) and December when the hotel was gloriously decorated for Christmas. We chose here again because we knew the standards set by the management. It has always been so clean, well run and so beautiful. There are waterfalls set into the volcanic rock, little streams and lovely botanical gardens. As well as that the rooms are comfortable, the food plentiful and varied with something for everyone. Other reviewers have said more about the restaurants and we agree with all those great comments. The hotel is laid out over a large area so that even when the hotel is busy, you never feel cramped. There is much to commend this hotel and Mogan itself so we felt very happy to recommend it to friends and family. So far, five sets of friends have stayed and all were as pleased as us. Needless to say, we'll definitely be back.

Das Hotel Cordial ist zu meinem absoluten Lieblingshotel auf Gran Canaria geworden! Schon der erste Eindruck beim Eintreten in das Hotel war ich total beeindruckt. Die Lobby ist großzügig, hell mit einien Highligts. Gemütliche Sitzecken laden zum Verweilen ein, ein großer Brunnen ein Blickfang, ein einer Ecke steht ein Klavier mit Sesseln drumherum (abends ist ein Klavierspieler oder eine -Spielerin da). Und alles in allem ist dieser große Raum immer sonnendurchflutet. Man wird hier sehr sehr freundlich empfangen und es ist sofort jemand zur Stelle, der die Koffer ins Zimmer bringt. Schon beim Weg zum Zimmer stellt man fest, die Anlage ist groß. Man hat aber nicht das Gefühl, in einem Hotelbetrieb zu sein. Herrliche Pflanzen und Blumen werden hier gepflanzt, gehegt und gepflegt. Es macht Freude, durch diese Anlage zu schlendern und alles mögliche zu entdecken. Da findet man einen kleinen Teich mit Fischen, eine ganz wunderbare Pergola und wenn man Lust hat, kann man auch einen Hügel erklimmen. Auch der Blick von der Dachterasse des Hotels lohnt sich! In der Hotelanlage ist alles vorhanden, was das Urlauberherz begehrt. An beiden Swimmungpools ist jeweils ein Restaurant, wo man zwischendurch kleine Gerichte bekommt. Natürlich gibt's auch Eis und Kuchen. In der Anlage selbst befindet sich auch noch zwei Restaurants für den gehobenen Anspruch. Aber das soll nicht heißen, dass das Essen im "normalen" Restaurant nicht so gut ist. Im Gegenteil! Wir hatten morgens und abends das Buffet gewählt und waren mehr als zufrieden. Die Auswahl war unbeschreiblich. Ich kann hier gar nicht beschreiben, wie ausgezeichnet es war. Man hatte immer sieben verschiedene Buffettheken zur Auswahl. Wer also hier abnehmen möchte, ist fehl am Platz! Unser Zimmer war groß, sehr gemütlich eingerichtet mit einer kleinen Terasse. Der Zimmerservice, den wir einmal in Anspruch genommen haben, klappte vorzüglich; die nette junge Dame war fix und sehr freundlich. Hier im Hotel Cordial habe ich einen Service und eine Freundlichkeit erfahren, die ich noch in keinem Hotel so erfahren konnte. Freundlichkeit ist fast zu wenig, hier herrscht wirklich Herzlichkeit. Der Weg zum kleinen Hafen und somit in das Herz von Puerto de Mogan führt durch die üppig bewachsene Hotelanlage, vorbei an einer kleinen Kapelle. Er dauert, wenn man gemütlich geht, ca. 15 Minuten. Als Fazit kann ich sagen: "Ich bin begeistert und komme auf jeden Fall wieder hierher!"

We have just returned from our 1st holiday at this beautiful hotel. We have stayed in many, many 4* hotels, but this is something else. Fantastic rooms with good views overlooking the pretty pool area, wonderful situation (just 10 mins walk from the charming town of Mogan), great food with plenty of variety and above all very helpful and friendly staff in all areas of the hotel who seemed to have permanent smiles on their faces, nothing was too much trouble for them. There are beautiful walks along many winding paths through the beautiful tropical gardens that stretch down to the town, they are breathtaking. The two sittings for dinner worked well as you are allocated your own table so there is no queueing!! What a great idea. We both had a great time and will be returning in the Spring.

This was our 4th stay in this hotel. It has never disappointed us. The staff are helpful and pleasant. The reception staff speak excellent English as do a lot of the other staff. It was so good to recognise so many of the staff from our previous visit, including Christian, who had helped us with a room change on a previous visit. The gardens are beautifully maintained.......rather like a botanical garden. The room we requested was there for us and the standard of cleanliness is high. It was not as busy in the first week of October as it seems to be between seasons and before school holidays begin. That meant no problems with the sun loungers !! This year we had joined the Cordial Club, this gave us 10% off the bar and pool restaurant (apart from the cost of the room safe). We had an excellent meal at the Los Guayres restaurant within the hotel.............a truly magnificent meal with superb service from Henry and Maria del Pino. We swapped our evening meal that day to a lunch. The walk to the harbour is an easy 10 minutes and there are numerous restaurants and shops. It is a most attractive area and I feel sure we will be making plans for our next visit soon. Should we go in March (which is our usual choice) or will we go in October again ? whichever we choose, we have the confidence of knowing that it will all be perfect !

My wife and I have just returned from a weeks holiday at the Cordial. From the moment we arrived until we left was an amazing experience. The staff could not be friendlier or more helpful. Our room was very spacious and had a lovely balcony overlooking the pool and gardens. (room 4508). The room was also immaculate. The choice of food was something else. Every night they provided food fit for a king and the variety was incredible. There definitely was something even for the most picky of eaters! I cannot really put it across how good the food was and the variety, even breakfasts were beautiful. The hotel gardens are maintained within in an inch of their life. All sunbeds were washed down of an evening too. One morning I was up at 6.30 and went onto the balcony to see the tiled pathways being washed down for the day ahead. Puerto de Mogan itself is a lovely little place if you like the quiet life. Definitely more upmarket than the other places along the coast. My advice is get It booked!! We are definitely going to go back at somepoint which is something I have never done in the past.

This incredible hotel nestles between two towering craggy cliffs, the surrounding area being quite dry with sparse vegetation, but oh my goodness, wait till you get to the hotel, it really is a pearl in the valley, leading to the pretty port and village. Our jaws dropped as we entered the foyer, and I really can't add anything that all the previous reviews have mentioned. We were also impressed with Thomas Cook, we had the obligatory meeting with the rep, but they were very knowledgeable, and advised us on sun care...the sun is very fierce here. The hotel staff were excellent, hard working and all acknowledged you as you passed by. We both had a spa treatment, wonderful, spotlessly clean, and my husbands first Indian Head massage, which he enjoyed for one who doesn't 'do' spas. The gardens, as mentioned in other reviews were stunning, and immaculately kept. The evening entertainment was patchy, but the magician and dancing troupe were excellent. There was an incredible choice of food for the buffet breakfast and evening meal, and once you'd worked out where everything was, it was great. We loved cocktails in the bar before dinner, and thanks to Yassica(?) for her great service. We also dined in Los Guayres, a more formal dining experience with waiter service, a nice change from serving yourself. The taster menu was lovely. Thank you to all the staff, in front and behind the scenes, for making our holiday so fantastic. There is a tour round the hotel, (which we missed) so you can go behind the scenes. Don't hesitate to book a holiday here, you won't be disappointed. We will return!

We have travelled all over and this is the only hotel we have returned to and we will do so again next year

My first stay here, hopefully not the last. A great design, built on the theme of a lovely tropical paradise. Palms, waterfalls, streams, pools - and this is just inside the building! Two swimming pools, one with its own artificial beach, both with pool bars. Great restaurant with superb and varied choice of foods. Large spacious room with free wi-fi and flat tv/dvd player, immaculately cleaned every day. This low rise hotel is welcoming and relaxed. All the staff were unfailingly helpful polite and cheerful. As a client with some difficulty walking any distance, I would have been able to hire a mobility scooter and use it even up to my room, as many guests did. The air conditioning is quiet and effective, and the bed was ultra comfortable (even the pillows). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here to anyone, and hope to pay a return visit one day.

Have just returned from our second visit this year to Cordial Mogan Playa and we are now planning our next trip. The staff were very friendly and attentive . On one occasion we had a minor problem in our room when we got back at 1130 pm one night , so we phoned reception and within a few minutes a member of staff arrived and sorted it . Impressive service at that time of night. It was my wife's birthday during our visit and the management sent their best wishes together with a cake. We liked the wide range of food available for breakfast and dinner , and the ability to swap dinner for lunch , so we could eat by the marina on occasions . The hotel was spotlessly clean and it was a delight every day to stroll through the well maintained tropical gardens. The sun beds were the most comfortable we have ever come across and , of course , the weather was a perfect 30C. All in all a most relaxing enjoyable holiday

We stayed at the Hotel Cordial the last week in September . Some friends recomened the hotel to us, they have stayed there many times. After reading Trip advisor reviews we were more than convinced it was the hotel for us. We were not disappointed . We asked for a room close to reception and dinning room as I have recently had a knee operation,our wish was granted. The room was spotless, beds very comfortable, food better than we have had in five star hotels and so much choice.The pools are immaculate, sunbeds are a dream and the gardens are wonderful. All the staff are so friendly and helpful. We will be going again next May , for two weeks this time , one week was not enough. Many many thanks to all the staff for making our holiday one to remember.

Me quedo corta en palabras para describir mi estancia en el hotel. Estuve por segunda vez el último fin de semana de agosto y ya como socia del Club Cordial y quiero destacar la gran profesionalidad del personal que allí trabaja, pero especial mención al camarero de piso Melo que cada día nos atendía con una gran simpatía y nos hizo sentirnos mejor que en casa. Pude degustar una cena en el restaurante Los Guayres y todo , todo exquisito para repetir. El hotel tuvo el detalle de obsequiarnos con una cesta de fruta y agua en la habitación por ser socia del club y al recomendárselo a unos amigos que fueron con nosotros también tuvieron un detalle con ellos una botella de vino de la tierra. Y que decir de la comida, el buffet fantástico tanto del desayuno como la cena, y nosotros almorzábamos en el restaurante la Sama junto a la piscina y todo bueno, de calidad y fresco. Lo recomiendo al 100% , si buscas tranquilidad y relajarte.

Lesley L,
Every revue we read before booking was positive and we can see why. Lovely hotel, the most amazing friendly, helpful, lovely staff everywhere in the hotel and the best buffet style food we have ever experienced. The most comfortable bed we've slept in whilst away and a thoughtfully designed hotel where you don't spend the entire night being disturbed by people returning to their rooms. Bliss!! Would definately recommend and visit again. Loved all the relaxation areas and especially the coktail bar and selection of lovely drinks on offer

We stayed in the hotel in the last week in sept, the hotel was spotlessly clean with lovely pools and gardens. The food was exceptional with a great variety. Mogan itself is a lovely little port and nice bars and places to eat of an evening. At the hotel the staff are so polite and helpful, it was my birthday whilst at the hotel and I would like to say a thank you to francisco guerra one of maitre'ds he went out of his way to make my day one to remember such a kind man. To sum up this place it is top quality and me and my wife will definetly be back.. Once again thank you to all at cordial mogan.

This was our 2nd visit to Mogan Playa and we enjoyed ourselves as much this time as the last. The staff are all so nice and go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Nothing is too much trouble for them. The food is of excellent quality. Our room in block 1 was nicely furnished and cleaned every day our balcony overlooked the swimming pool. To me this is the best. In the evenings we enjoyed walking down to the town and spent many an evening at Dani's Bar listening to live music. About to book to go back next September it will give us something to look forward too while we face winter at home.

This is a lovely hotel designed with peace and beauty in mind, supported by the most customer friendly staff you will find outside of a 5 star. The location and quality of the accommodation, together with excellent food and service makes for a wonderful holiday. Every other customer we spoke to had previously visited, which is indicative of the loyalty of clients, the hotel sustains. We will return!

This is the second year that we have stayed at the Sandy Golf bugalows Maspalomas & it couldn't be better. It is a very quiet place, not a lot for children to do & quite a walk to Playa del ingles or Maspalomas, but my wife & I enjoy walking, cycling or just catching the free courtesy bus to these places. The bungalows are basic but well kept with enough facilities to cook a basic meal if you need to. There is a large patio area outside each bungalow with a sun shade, 2 sun loungers & a table & chairs, so no need to venture out if you want to lay in the sun. There is a small supermarket on site & a bigger one at Faro 2 just across the main road. The staff are very friendly & helpful & the maids change the towels & bed sheets nearly every day of the week. All in all a very pleasant place to while away a couple of weeks & we will definitely be back next year.

Just returned home from a wonderful stay at the Cordial. This was our first time to visit but certainly won't be our last! We arrived late at the hotel, almost 10pm, following a nightmarish shuttle journey from the airport (no fault of the hotel). We were stressed, tired and hungry, but Enrico at reception took charge of the situation, suggesting that we go straight to the restaurant for dinner then return to him for check-in. We took his advice and so began a lovely week at this beautiful hotel. Standards generally are very high, from staff, food, cleanliness, attention to detail etc, The gardens are amazing and the pool areas are lovely. Cushions on sun-loungers are very comfy and the daily supply of, free of charge, clean pool towels is a nice touch. All staff work very hard to make your holiday a wonderful experience and all requests are dealt with efficiently. We would particularly like to mention Cheryl in reception, always pleasant and helpful. Also Sofia in the snack bar. She worked so hard and no matter how busy she was she always had a smile on her face and a pleasant word for everyone. We could go on and on but most of the positives have been mentioned by others who stayed here. Just one suggestion! Some live music, maybe a piano or guitar, playing in the foyer during pre and after dinner drinks would complete the idyllic picture! We are already looking forward to our next visit. Well done to all at the Cordial. Patricia & Tony

Another wonderful holiday at Mogan Playa - our third and counting! Quite simply, we enjoyed a fortnight of sheer luxury and relaxation in this wonderful hotel. In addition to other great nembers of staff that we have mentioned in previous reviews, we met the charming Noelia who we named "Smiley" and the lovely Senorita Gonzalez who we named "Speedy". They both live up to their names and are excellent additions to the staff in the "blue restaurant". A special mention also goes to Melchor and Aziz for their caring attention at dinner. The caring attitude of ALL staff mirrors the excellence of the entire management team.

We've just returned from another brilliant stay (our tenth!!) at the Cordial Mogan Playa - and are already planning our next one! Although more people are finding out about this fantastic gem, it never seems over- crowded and is just a perfect place to chill-out. All the staff are so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble - we genuinely feel like one of the Cordial family! The rooms are still meticulously cleaned and maintained, the food is still superb and the gardens are still incredible. Why go anywhere else when we've found our own little Shangri-La in Puerto Mogan? Many thanks and congratulations to Mr. Alberto Pernalete and his staff - you are doing a marvellous job!

My wife and I went recently for our 3rd visit to Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa. As previous guests we had joined Club Cordial and were able to take advantage of the offers provided as a result of this. The hotel remains one of our favourites with the fantastic staff, great food and wonderful gardens and pool areas. We always stay in a Junior Suite. These are situated in a beautiful area of the hotel site in small two storey blocks the upstairs suites having a great balcony within the palm trees, fruit trees and wonderful floral displays. The lower suites having their own private garden. Suite guests have breakfast in a small restaurant close to one of the pools with outside tables but have their evening meals in the main restaurant. The spa is wonderful and if you don’t wish for any treatment you can pay for a couple of hours in the fantastic spa area in its beautiful setting in the cactus garden. A short walk takes you Puerto de Mogan a beautiful little village. There are two areas of the village. A beach area with all the usual facilities and a lovely marina area with slightly more upmarket restaurants, bars and shops a fantastic array of yachts and beautiful floral displays. You can also get boat trips from here and take the ferries to Arguineguin, Puerto Rico and Anfi. All in all Puerto de Mogan is a great place and the Cordial Mogan Playa makes it extra special

After being totally spoiled on our first visit to this fantastic hotel we were not disappointed on our second visit. The service was excellent, the staff couldn't do enough for us, the rooms spotless and the grounds superb. There is enough variety of food to please everyone and it is cooked to perfection - we couldn't fault it. The location of the hotel is ideal. We have an 85 year old in our party who now finds walking a little difficult but the short walk to the marina and shops is easily achievable. The local bars offer a friendly service and the market is well worth a visit. So, it is no wonder we are looking forward to our third trip next month and, if it is half as good as the last one, we'll still be happy!!

1st visit last April for and almost immediately decided we need to come back for longer. So 2 weeks this time. Next year I think it will be 3 weeks. Last time was just to chill. This trip we did venture out and about. There is none of this “looking forward to getting home” stuff when you stay here. We didn't want to come home. This hotel does have it all but the thing that really make it is the STAFF. The people add the edge. Friendly, helpful and hardworking. Nothing seems to be to much trouble. This trip we were in room 1321. Building 1, Floor 3 and room 21 overlooking the North Pool. Always nice to see friendly faces on a late arrival. We were delayed so missed dinner. So reception provided us with a lunch voucher for our departure day. And there was still light bites available but we were more tired than hungry. So 2 weeks of exploring beautiful Puerto Mogan and further via local bus, VIP Island trip, ferry boat, and helicopter. The hotel is a few minutes stroll from the local Bus Terminal. Take the #1 bus (less than 2€) to Puerto Rico(PR) Bus terminal. Here we bought a combined return and Red Bus tour hop on and off in Las Palmas for the discounted price of 25€, From PR you catch the fast bus #91 to Las Palmas the capital. About 1.5 hours trip. Just ask reception. Good to check its not a "bank" or religious holiday otherwise everything is closed. Same on a Sunday. Some great walking as well. Step outside the hotel and look up to the sky and you will see the occasional runner or walker on the ridge. Turning right leaving the hotel and walk up the apartments next door. Look left around the roundabouts and you will see a road snaking up the hill. Its about 25 minutes to the top (take water and do it early). Once on top there are loot s of trails to walk. Walk toward the blue and white light beacon and you will get great pictures of the valley below and bays beyond. Or just laze by the 2 excellent pools. Always sunbeds available because they hotel monitors bed reservation to 90 minutes. no show and your stuff is moved. While the pools are great the Spa is amazing and well worth the entrance fee of 18€. Cant wait till next year. We plan to hire a car and go more solo

The hotel and gardens are extremely clean as are the swimming pools and hot tubs, its well laid out with some fantastic gardens and a nice little church in the centre of the complex. we stayed in room 1322 block A, a nice room location overlooking the top swimming pool, hotel also has entertainment during the day and night and this year it was very good, 4 or 5 bars in and around hotel, ask Hong ( barman ) for a mojito, best mojito in mogan. You will not be disappointed if you go to this hotel, its great ! we have already booked for a return visit in 2015.

Stayed at Cordial Mogan for 10 nights at the end of August and were really impressed. On a late arrival we were greeted by a very friendly reception team and after a light bite to eat were escorted by Jose to our room. He pointed out places we needed to know on our way to our room, whilst taking our cases on a trolley. As it was late and we were tired it was so welcome and he was really helpful. Food was superb and Reduan and the other waiters and waitresses were cheerful and fun. Hotel immaculate / Fantastic room service and a great Spa. Towels provided daily for use by the pool . Lovely live music played each night at the bar by the pool which we could listen to on our balcony.

We stayed for 5 nights to relax and unwind. It was the perfect place to do this. Pools are both lovely, it was easy to find empty loungers and the cushions pads were most welcome! Pool towels are provided which was nice. Pools clean and not too cold, just right. The room was large and comfortable and had everything we needed. The dining experience was good. On the first night you choose between two times for dinner and are allocated a table for your whole stay. This made the experience a lot more pleasant than other all inclusive hotels we have been to as there was no rush or fighting for tables! The food was tasty and varied but sometimes could have done with better labeling as sometimes labels were missing or wrong. Loved the chocolate fountain! Lots of cats around, which are looked after by the hotel which was nice to see. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Area around the hotel is a bit run down and there isn't much near by to see but this didn't bother us as we were here to relax and the hotel had everything we needed.

Nuestra estancia fue a principios de agosto con un bebé de 11 meses. Contratamos la media pensión y fue más que suficiente pues el desayuno era completísimo y la cena la tomábamos a primera hora. Por el medio algo de fruta (hay un super justo frente al hotel) y unas cañas en el bar de la pisci fueron todo lo que necesitamos. Para el bebè dejamos encargado un puré todos los días (que recogíamos en el bar) y le pedíamos pescado a la plancha durante la cena y a la salida no quisieron cobrarnos nada. Ya ves que guay. La piscina junto a la recepción genial, bastante tranquila y hay sitio y tumbonas para todos. La otra ni la pisamos porque era donde había actividades (yoga, aquagym y esas cosas) y huíamos de cualquier ajetreo. Sólo la minidisco que al bebé le gustó mucho así que nosotros contentos.

We went last year and returned this year. We had room 7325 full sunshine all day (so quite warm) and also a lovely distant view of the sea, great view of the swimming pool, tennis court and mountains. Food is fantastic so there is something for everybody, you can hire kettles for your room for that afternoon coffee/tea or there is a cooling fridge for that little tipple. There is a supermarket to the left outside main reception for your little extras. Evening meals come in two settings 6.30 to 7.45 and 8.45 to 10.30 The gardens are lovely to walk through and your door key can be used at the rear door though the gardens or also the side door onto the large promenade walk. If you like walking then there is a great walk up to the mountains overlooking all of Mogan, turn right outside reception go around the back of Dino supermarket out to the main road and look for the black tarmac winding road, follow this up and then at the top you will have these great views. (At the beginning of this road it does show a sign of a person with a X across it don't worry it means walking only,no cars) make sure you take water it takes around 45 minutes to get up but you may stay to admire the views for a while. There is a ferry from mogan marina worth taking also and takes you to 3 different beaches and promenades and marinas and also lovely views of the mountainous landscapes. For a local entertaining evening make a night to go to Dani Bocatta bar (turn left outside reception and it's the bar to the right at the end of the promenade with the yellow awning. It's a family run bar ( you can get basic food) but from 8.30pm they entertain you with music till 11pm believe me if you go once you will go back. We love this place and will go back again.

This hotel is beyond description... I am returning for the 3rd time in 12 months next week.. that I think is the best recommendation I can give this hotel. From the moment a guest arrives to the moment of departure everything is just perfect. The rooms are spacious, I always like to stay in the first block near the reception, and near the north pool. As mentioned in other reviews the food is so varied, that I always eat too much, it is just too hard to resist. The staff are wonderful and friendly and in particular the restaurant staff remembered me from my first visit, and always brought a big pot of coffee to the table for breakfast, without I having to ask for it. I love my coffee first thing in the morning!! It is the small things that make this hotel very special. I have recommended it to so many people, and this time I am bringing my parents to the hotel for the first time......... it won't be my last visit and I don't think it will be their's either.

My husband and I have just returned from this superb hotel. The room (suite), food and hotel cleanliness were faultless. Staff could not have done any more to make our stay perfect. One particular member of the animation team deserves a mention, Michał Kosciukiewicz. We looked forward to his Yogilates session every morning. He followed up with aqua aerobics, injecting copious amounts of humour into his sessions. He even enticed us into a game of waterpolo, something I would never have done in the past. I scored three out of the six goals! Much to my husband's annoyance, I continued to remind him of my sporting prowess throughout the remaining holiday!!! The hotel provided an opportunity to have professional photographs taken by Fotoeventi Group. Photographs are taken around the hotel, with guests permission. One is not under any obligation to buy. There is absolutely no pushy sales tactics or encouragement to purchase any pictures. My husband and I chose to have some photographs taken around the hotel by Claudio; and in addition Andrea took us to Mogan village. Both photographers were extremely professional and good fun. One of the main highlights of the holidays was our evening spent with Andea, as he took photo after photo in the harbour. To describe the photographs as being lovely, is doing both Andrea and Claudio a disservice. The pictures are phenomenal; the lightning and focusing and all those intricacies that professional photographers need to produce exceptional pictures were first class. If staying in this hotel, I would highly recommend contacting Andrea and Claudio.

Acabamos de estar 8 días en este hotel y solo puedo decir que la experiencia ha sido inmejorable. El trato de todos los empleados ha sido exquisito: las camareras de la habitación, recepcionistas, camareros de los restaurantes, botones, personal de piscina, etc. Te hacen sentirte como en tu casa. Mi mujer es celiaca y cuando se lo comunicamos, estaban siempre pendientes de su menu. Segun entrabamos a desayunar, comer o cenar, le preguntaban si queria su pan sin gluten, que platos especiales para ella le habian preparado (previa peticion al chef), e incluso el chef se la llevaba a dar una vuelta por el buffet para decirle que cosa podia comer y cuales no. Unos buffet muy completos y variados tanto para desayuno, comida y cena. La cena se ahce en dos turnos y esta muy organizada. Las instalaciones del hotel estan en perfecto estado, muy cuidadas y son muy variadas: 2 piscinas enormes en dos zonas diferentes, con zonas que cubre poco para los niños (aunque tambien tiene pisicnas especificas para peques), bolera, pista de tenis, un ajedrez gigante, etc. Una cosa a destacar es que las consumiciones que te ofrece el hotel (en la piscina, en la sal de fiestas o en cualquiera de los restaurantes) son muy ajuastadas de precio (un refresco 2,40 €, un agua de 1 litro 2,10 €), por lo que "no te da cosa" pedir nada. En la piscina todos los días hay animaciones para adultos y crios y estan muy bien organizadas. Por las noches hay un espectaculo para los peques a als 8:15 y para los mayores a las 9:45. Ambos estan muy bien y merece la pena (se hacen en la cocteleria del hotel y son gratuitas). En cuanto a las habitaciones solo puedo hablar de la que nostors tuvimos, una junior suite. Estaba muy bien, con un salocito con un safa cama y la tele y una habitación muy amplia y grande. El baño muy grande con bañera y ducha por separado. En nustro caso elegimos una habitacion en planta baja, que tenia una zona de jardin privado con 2 tumbonas y una mesa y dos sillas, perfecta para los peques. Disponen de aparcamiento gratuito y de wifi gratis en todo el recinto del hotel. Ya termino. Solo deciros que cogimos un coche de alquiler pensando en hacer excursiones y solo media pension pensando en que comeriamos fuera. Bueno pues al final solo bajamos una tarde a la playa y a penas usamos el coche. Estuvimos todo el tiempo en el hotel, pasando una semana de autentico relax y desconexión, en la que mi crio disfruto como un enano de todo. Una experiencia inolvidable. Volvere seguro.

Have just returned from the Cordial Biarritz where we had two apartments, 1 x 1 bedroom and 1 x 2 bedroom, these apartments are spacious with separate bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, the lounge/ diner is split level with dinning area on the top and then down two steps to the lounge and then outside to the patio. Our son had a two bedroom with the same area, seven though there where five of them they where not on top of one another, the two bedroom where both a nice size as was the one in our apartment, staff are friendly and polite, the rooms are clean, came back from the pool to find the bed linen on the bed and soon realised that when I made the bed the maid did not like to disturb the bed when I left it un made she changed the sheets, nice drying area off the kitchen which was great for drying your towel or washing, the apartments are close to the Yumbo centre and 10 minute walk to the beach, plenty of sun beds, if you want a bit of shade you have to use the trees, plenty of room to swim in the pool our grandchildren loved the pool, wifi is available in public areas both our apartments could get it some time we had to step out side and it connected and then we could use it in doors, if you are self catering then hop in a taxi and ask them to take you to San Fernando and the mercadona super market the prices are a lot cheaper here, if you want some English food then to go Kim's bar in the Gran chaperal, we wood differently go back. Going to Gran Canaria Is like going home for us as we have been going there since 1999

I have never written a review but felt I should this time. Simply loved the hotel and the overall experience. As per other adult reviews:loved the pools, spa, tropical gardens, food (amazing and huge choice), flexibility to move dinner to lunch whenever, quality of rooms, tennis court, gym, and great service!! Our 11 month old baby loved it too! On arrival we asked to change rooms as we didn't want to be on the ground floor as wanted to leave baby asleep on the balcony- got moved with no problems at all! We were given a kettle for the room as needed it to make up the milk and 2 bath mats to ensure baby didn't skip in bath. The baby cot was great and was waiting for us in the room. Every night we asked for a cup of warm milk, which we were never charged for. There was a huge choice of food at breakfast for my baby: scrambled eggs, beans, veg, fruit, yogurt etc. I brought some porridge with me so asked for hot milk, which I got right away. Also, plenty of options at lunch or dinner. There were hundreds of high chairs so we never had to wait for one or look for one. There is a supermarket directly opposite the entrance to the hotel which sold all main brand nappies, wipes, non branded baby food and snacks. But a supermarket which was 2 mins away sold all branded baby food like Ellas kitchen, so there is no need to bring food with you! The salt water pool was perfect for a baby or toddler and the little pool had warmer water for the littles one that didn't like the big pool. There was AstroTurf along the perimeter of the pool where we chose to base ourselves as the baby could crawl around and play without getting sand or pebbles all over her. The loungers were lovely and soft and there were plenty of parasol's to hide our baby from the sun. Unlike the rest of GC, the resort was completely flat so it was very easy to walk around with the pram and the resort had lots of wonderful gardens where you can go for walks with the baby. Every evening we did the bath & feed routine and then put baby in sleep suit/grow bag and and took her out in the pram. Thanks to the fresh air she fell asleep very quickly which allowed us to eat out every night! Overall, it was a stress free, easy and relaxing holiday to have with a baby. We have never been back to the same place twice but because of how much we all enjoyed ourselves have booked to go back in October. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who has a little baby with them. It's a hidden gem and we loved everything about it, despite having been to many luxury hotels in Carribean and the Indian Ocean.

We had a fantastic break in Gran Canaria. Puerto Mogan was beautiful and our hotel Cordial Mogan Playa was wonderful. Great staff, beautiful gardens and pools, delicious food - we are planning to visit again. Our two teenage girls (15) had a brilliant holiday - it was a safe resort and we were close enough to the beach and restaurants and bars to not have to stay at the hotel resort all the time (although many people did). We made use of the tennis court, pools, bars and we couldn't recommend the hotel highly enough.

This was our 2nd holiday to Cordial Mogan Playa after first enjoying a fabulous holiday here last summer and we were yet again not disappointed. As a well travelled family of 4 (including our 9 year old daugher & 5 year old son), we can honestly say that this is definitely one of our favourite places to holiday, with both the resort and hotel living up to all of the positive reviews it recieves. After staying here last year, we of course knew what to expect and we seemed to have an even better time this year. The hotel is quite stunning aesthetically which you realise upon arrival outside and also when stepping into the lobby and reception area. The facilities there are fantastic from a Spa, to Tennis Courts, Ten-Pin Bowling, 2 large pool areas,Jacuzzis, and plenty for children to do with a games room & a great mini-club that they can dip in and out of, and they are really great with the children. The pools themselves are nice and warm and large enough to never feel crowded at all, and always plenty of sun beds to go around. The restaurant is also fantastic, very large seating areas and fabulous choice of food to cater for all tastes both at breakfast & dinner. Being allocated the same table each night for familarity is also catered for, or they are happy to switch you to another area or dinner slot if asked so it is both very professionally organised and also flexible at the same time. The gardens are particulary stunning just walking through them and are well tendered each day. We had an inter-connecting family room which was just perfect for us and our 2 young children, giving us both a bit of space in the main room and they had their own room with the security of being inter-connected. We have found the staff always extremely warm, friendly, very efficient and seem genuinely happy to work there, a big feature of this hotel we feel. The resort itself also provided everything we wanted with the beach just a short stroll away, plenty of places to eat or drink and a walk around the marina each day was one of our highlights as it is just stunning. Would recommend a boat trip to Anfi to get out for the day which we all really enjoyed, plus we met other families who hired a car to explore the island a bit more too. Biggest compliment we can give is that we will definitely be going back again and cannot recommend this hotel enough.

Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa is a wonderful hotel build in Canary style, with an oasis of green plants around the facility. We are a Family of two children and we absolutely LOVE this hotel. The hotel offers Family rooms and that is great, and the hotel is very well maintained and clean! The staff is so friendly and professionals! Both breakfast and dinner is exceptionally good! This is so much better for us as a Family than a typical Family hotel that the travel companies offer, here can the adult and the children have a wonderful time together! For ex; the adults can lay by the pool watching one child swimming and one play in the sand, and still get some sun without running around! We really recommend this hotel!

This is a fabulous hotel. My wife and I discovered it three years ago and we would really recommend it . The complex is like a large tropical estate with really beautiful gardens. Plenty of sun beds, free pool towels and 2 lovely huge swimming pools. The food is excellent and there is a terrific variety on offer. The staff are lovely and there is entertainment most nights .Because of its location, there is no traffic noise. It about 15 mins. stroll into Puerto Mogan. We have booked again and we will be going out this September 2104 for 9 nights.This is our 3rd. year in a row. Don't just think about it , book it. We don't think you will be disappointed.

Our third visit to Cordial Mogan Playa Hotel booked through www.cordialresortholidays.com and it wont be our last. The hotel facilities are excellent with a spa, two pools and three dining rooms, the food is buffet style and cant be faulted, extremely clean and helpful happy staff. There is so much to do within the hotel. I must say is the Canarians love this resort and the location is the hottest on the island. Mogan itself is a pretty harbour town with a popular Friday market although a little out of the way,ideal for a quiet holiday but with plenty to do if you want to find it. We cant wait to return.

My husband and I had been recommended this hotel by our niece and now we can understand why. We stayed at this wonderful hotel for 9 nights at at the end of June and can honestly say it was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. It was so pretty with lots of little pathways of tropical plants and trees. The two pools within the grounds were immaculate but we always went to the 2nd pool as there were so many quiet areas to sit and relax on the lovely comfortable sun loungers. The staff were extremely helpful and couldn't do enough for you, particularly those in the restaurant. We had a lovely spacious, clean room with amazing mountain views from the front and rear of our block and having requested a quiet room overlooking the outdoor spa we couldn't of asked for more.There was so much choice in the restaurant with something different each evening. Everything had been freshly prepared & some dishes were cooked in front of you. We will definitely return to this hotel in the future and have already recommended it to other people; one couple have already booked to go in February and we know they will not be disappointed!! Thank you Cordial Mogan Playa for a wonderful stay.

The Cordial Mogan Playa is truly fantastic. My boyfiend and I stayed in June this year for 9 nights. The whole experience was faultless. The staff were very attentive and extremely friendly. Food was also excellent. It did get busier towards the end of our stay, but the service remained as good. There was a good selection of food for breakfast and dinner. We also took the option with our half board packge to swap our dinner for lunch, which was also excellent!! We only used one of the 2 pools, but both seem well catered for with sun loungers and umbrellas etc...They had a good rule which meant you couldn't reserve sunbeds. The location was also ideal. The resort as a whole is very relaxed and had a good selection of restaurants and a few bars. The spa is also a must to add to the overall relaxing experience. We will definitely be back!!

We have just returned home from The Cordial Mogan Playa on 9th August. This was our second visit to the hotel and it did not fail to wow us yet again. We stayed at this hotel last year for our 25th wedding anniversary and loved it that much we returned with our 2 sons this year. We had raved about it to the boys and I'm sure they thought we were exaggerating. Well, when we arrived they were in awe of the reception and the absolutely fantastic warm welcome we received from Monica (one of the reception staff). She remembered us from last year and made us feel like part if the family. The standard of this hotel surpasses that of many a package holiday hotel we've stayed at before (and we've stayed at some lovely ones). The staff are courteous and cannot do enough for you. The food is fabulous. All areas of the hotel are spotlessly clean. Sunbeds are plentiful (we did notice a few people reserving them, but there really was no need to). I will definitely return to this hotel without a doubt. Just to summarise...... Love it, love it, love it!!!!!!!

We were at Cordial Mogan Playa in October '13 and loved it, so much so that we are coming back in September this year - we have never done a return trip to a hotel in 19 yrs of holidaying as a couple.The reasons for us coming back are the food (which is varied, of good quality and crucially to us it is very tasty as well as healthy - amongst countless possibilities check out their selection of sliced fresh tomatoes which you can season with a selection of exotic salts - heaven !), the professional and ultra helpful staff (last year I handed a wet plastic bag containing the proceeds of a fishing trip to a female receptionist who arranged with a smile for it to be taken down to the kitchen - we then had perfectly grilled fish brought to the table by one of the chefs at evening dinner) the entertainment, the plant displays, the coloured glass dome in the reception building, the value, the pretty resort, the excellent climate. Kevin Bacon would say just go - it's a no brainer.

What a fantastic holiday & all due to the amazing Cordial Mogan Playa. The hotel was superb, fantastic for our 5 year old boy who voluntarily wanted to go to kids club each day, spent half his time in the pool & made lots of friends! The animation team were excellent, I even participated in the aqua aerobics each day! Food was amazing so much choice for all, rooms spacious & very clean, staff very friendly & considering over 400 rooms the hotel was very quiet & chilled. Also great to be within strolling distance of a picturesque harbour & marina. We will be back!

We read the excellent reviews and were not disappointed. The service was superb and I am so grateful for the way this hotel helped me retrieve some jewellery which I had left in the safe. Despite me not getting their message they left me for 2-3 weeks as I had not set up voicemail on a new phone, they kept it safe until I contacted them when they sent it by recorded delivery. The food was wonderful both at breakfast and dinner, with a magnificent choice of dishes. The gardens were a delight and maintained beautifully. Can thoroughly recommend this hotel and definitely want to go back.

Nous avons testé beaucoup d'hotels 4 étoiles dans les Canaries mais celui-ci est le meilleur de sa catégorie. Nous y sommes actuellement pour la 4e fois, en suite junior. Celles-ci se trouvent au bout du domaine, avec accès très rapide vers la plage. Ici, pas de foule au déjeuner puisque votre suite donne accès à un buffet spécifique aux suites. Vous pourrez alors déjeuner dehors près de la piscine ou de l'autre côté du resto, près de la petite chapelle canarienne typique située au milieu du magnifique jardin des suites. Les suites ont balcon ou jardin si vous êtes au rez-de-chaussée. Dans ces suites, vous êtes comme chez vous ! Les repas du soir sont excellents et les buffets sont très répartis dans le restaurant, ce qui évite de faire des files comme dans beaucoup d'hotels. Le midi, à l'endroit du déjeuner des suites, il y a un beau buffet. Le personnel est souriant et très gentil, pas stressé comme ailleurs. La philosophie de l'hôtel est saine: ils recherchent la qualité pour garder leurs clients... et ça marche. De plus le petit port est charmant. Bref nous conseillons vivement.

My wife and I have just returned from 2 weeks half board stay at Cordial Mogan Playa. From check in to check out the service provided by the staff was impeccable. They are all the friendliest staff that we have ever encountered ..... and no loss of efficiency either ...... a lesson there for some hotels. The rooms are as expected and very comfortable ...... we had room 7223 ..... which gave us exactly what I requested by direct e.mail, i.e a view across the southern pool to the Atlantic beyond ( the room is on the 2nd floor) All of the meals provided some of the best food encountered in a hotel of this rating ..... well presented .... hot and tasty. The grounds are beautiful and always lots of loungers available ..... no reserving required (or allowed). Location is great .... literally 5 minutes from the back gate to Mogan beach. We shall definitely be making a return visit at some time in the future. My recommendation is to get booking and go ...... you'll love it !

My boyfriend and I had a week's holiday at the Cordial Mogan Playa in July 2014 and I can't praise the hotel and its staff highly enough. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms spacious and clean, the staff friendly and welcoming, and the pool (there are actually three, but we used the main one) fab. We were half-board and the food was excellent - great variety. Mogan, which is a five-minute walk away, is a lovely town not spoiled by tourism with a pretty beach and harbour. Don't hesitate to book this hotel: it was very good value (we paid about £540 each for flights and half-board, including transfer, which is about a half-hour drive), and worth every penny - I'm not sure why it isn't five star. Can't wait to come back: THANK YOU!

Just spent one of the most relaxing weeks of our lives at the glorious Cordial Mogan Playa Hotel. We could not fault this hotel except perhaps for too much delicious food, it really was superb, very varied - although buffet style, but you have never seen a buffet like this. A delightfully designed restaurant with trees, plants and waterfalls surrounding. The food is set all around the restaurant and there was never any queuing. You could eat as much as you wanted and you could return to the buffet as often as you wished. We actually booked half board plus which meant our drinks at dinner (or lunch) were included. We calculated we saved about about £20 a night by booking this up front. Right from the moment we arrived, eleven hours late at 3 in the morning because of a plane delay, we were made to feel so welcome. We were offered food and drinks - beer, wine, champagne, soft, anything we wanted. Check in was quick, smooth and efficient courtesy of a very friendly (and sympathetic) receptionist. We booked a suite which was lovely, we even had our own little tropical garden, as we were on the ground floor, with personal sunbeds. The room was spotless, cleaned every day and bins emptied and towels changed twice a day, if necessary, the second time when the beds were turned down at night and chocolate left for us! The ambiance, furnishings, gardens, rooms and staff are the best we have experienced in a long, long time. The free Wi-fi was very good and the hotel have just had fiber optic cabling put in which, when connected by the Canarian phone company, will vastly increase the speed. The grounds are spectacular with streams and waterfalls, trees, plants and flowers everywhere - inside and out. In fact the reception and foyer resembles the tropical Dome at the Eden Project! Beautiful. The hotel never felt busy or crowded, even though there are 480 rooms, it is designed so well that you are hardly aware of anyone else. There is a passeo or walkway directly outside the hotel leading to the village, beach and harbour. It is a ten minute stroll or 5 minutes if you walk through the hotel grounds and exit through one of the gates. Don't miss the market in the village and all around the harbour on a Friday - also the Hotel's 'behind the scenes' tour is on a Friday - very interesting. Fabulous holiday and will definitely return - with our returners loyalty card - they think of everything!

This is our 2nd holiday to Cordial Mogan Playa and it was just as good as the 1st time. Staff are very friendly and attentive and the food was excellent even for us vegetarians. The beach and shops are are easily accessed near by. Hotel and surroundings amazing and spotlessly clean. We highly recommend this hotel.We will come back again and visit and enjoy hopefully many times more.

Once again we had a wonderful holiday at the Cordial Mogan Playa. From the moment you enter the stunning reception area you know this is a first class hotel. It offers superb service, excellent accommodation, extensive and beautiful gardens and a wide range of facilities. The choice of food offered in the buffet is second to none and the friendliness of the staff add to a pleasurable dining experience. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Gran Canaria and am already looking forward to my next visit.

Ya son cuatro años seguidos que hemos pasado una semana en familia en el Hotel Cordial Mogán Playa. Cada año mejor que el anterior. El trato del personal exquisito tanto en recepción como en la cafeteria/bar Fula como las camareras de habitaciones. La comida muy buena y variada y ¡ qué decir del restaurante Los Guayres! De los mejores de la isla de Gran Canaria. Volveremos el año próximo. Peter Pamment

We've stayed several times at Cordial Mogan Playa in the spring time and always look forward to the tranquility and service. The junior suites are spacious and comfortable, breakfast every day is a leisurely affair on the terrace or indoors if it's still a little chilly early in the morning. The food is excellent - we usually opt to take lunch instead of dinner under our half-board arrangement, but occasionally we eat in Los Guayres, the hotel's 'fine-dining' restaurant, which is well worth trying; the standard is extremely high for the price and the restaurant has a lovely ambience. The hotel is always immaculately presented inside and out; the gardens are beautiful and very well-tended. We hope to return each year for many years to come.

Finally getting round to posting a review, we stayed here at the end of September 2013 after previously staying in the apartments next door. If you're looking for somewhere to chill out and relax then this is the perfect spot. We'd a lovely ground floor room near to the pool which we were very happy with. We stayed 10 nights on half board plus, the food and service are first class and nothing is too much bother. We tried the taster menu in Los Guayres restaurant on one evening (they give some discount is you are staying in the hotel) and can really recommend you give it a go, the mojito foam is delicious!!! There are 2 large pools with plenty of sunbeds and pool towels that are changed daily. We loved the added bonus of waiter service for drinks! There are activities during the day, if you don't feel like joining in you're not forced to! We can't really comment on the hotel entertainment as we walked down to Mogan port most evenings. Mogan is not for those looking to party but if you're happy with a beautiful fishing port that has plenty of restaurants and a few bars then this is the place for you. We just love the excellent food, service and relaxed feel of this hotel. This year we thought we'd try somewhere different to holiday but just couldn't see anything that could match our expectations. We've just booked to go back to Cordial Mogan Playa in September and really can't wait!

My husband needed a holiday. I booked this hotel. Fingers crossed. From the time we arrived to the time we left we enjoyed ourselves. We booked a junior suite, half board. Breakfast varied and lots of it. Dinner had different choices every night. Good entertainment in the evening. Staff throughout the hotel were friendly and helpful. Position of the hotel meant we were a 5 minute walk from the beach. I can't find any negatives about this hotel except to say should have booked 10 days instead of 7. Will definitely be going back.

Wow! What a hotel. We booked it 5 years ago but had to cancel due to health reasons but always had aspiration to visit and we finally achieved it in June. We were not let down, Everything that has been said about this hotel is true so I won't repeat it, save to say we had a fantastic time and it will be our No. 1 choice for a "chill out" holiday in the future. The little touches also really contribute to the experience. We arrived late evening and were offered the usual welcome drink, but also a picnic bag as we had missed dinner. We were also told we could get a voucher for lunch on our last day to compensate and this was given without question. At check out we were informed that we could use the courtesy suite provided for changing as we had an evening flight home. All freely offered without having to ask. Fridge and hairdryer provided in room and we could get supplies from a good supermarket almost opposite. It's nice when everything works and it does here so we are likely to become regulars. Well done Cordial Mogan Playa, you ticked all our boxes and we will be back soon.

No tengo sino buenas palabras para explicar mi experiencia. 100% recomendable, estuve un fin de semana a finales del mes pasado y volveré a repetir en agosto. En cuanto al personal , decir que fueron muy amables y atentos en todo momento. Los jardines son una maravilla, el buffet es buenísimo todo muy fresco y gran variedad, recomiendo coger media pensión, merece la pena. Para mí el mejor hotel de la isla para desconectar y relajarse. Volví a casa con las pilas recargadas y con pocas ganas de volver a la rutina, todo hay que decirlo, y mas después de haber gozado de un magnifico masaje en ese espléndido Spa. Lo dicho no dejéis de ir, os lo recomiendo.

We got a nice room in the middle of the north wing. Rooms and balconies are big, good Internet, very tasty food with a good choice of dishes on HB, all facilities and equipment for self catering in the kitchen (toaster, kettle, microwave, etc...). Good value for money when booking through official web-site. I'm ready to return right now:)

We stayed here 13/27th June 2014. It was my wifes' birthday on 14th and when we came back to our room in afternoon found a " Happy Birthday" letter from Hotel Manager, two cakes and a complementary spa pass for two. Went down for our evening meal and what was waiting for us? A complementary bottle of champagne !!! The waiter said that reception always check passports when you check in to see if it is your birthday. What a lovely surprise !! As for the Hotel itself we can only agree with the majority of comments, the staff are wonderful the food is great but most of all the gardens ( and reception area ) are just fantastic. It is like being in some Tropical Paradise. Will we be back ?? Well we have joined their club to get even MORE benefits when we return.

My husband and I stayed between 5 and 12 June 2014 - what a fabulous place to stay - we would rate it five star rather than four. Everyone made us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We arrived late due to a delay with our flight and we missed our dinner but that was no problem - we were given a welcoming drink and some food to take to our room. Our luggage was taken for us and we were given lots of information on the way to our room. We had a standard room overlooking the spa and the cacti garden - very quiet and peaceful. The grounds of the hotel are stunning and beautifully kept. The rooms are very comfortable with individually controlled air-conditioning, fridge (no extra cost) and flat screen TV with lots of international channels. The bathrooms are well stocked with toiletries and even a has a shaving/makeup mirror. The food is buffet style with waiter service for drinks. The quality and choice is excellent - anything from caviar to a burger! The two swimming pools are beautifully kept and we had no trouble getting sunbeds during the day. There is also waiter service at poolside which makes you feel very pampered. As mentioned by other reviewers, we too feel the evening entertainment could be better although we did enjoy one evening in the hotel foyer where a Spanish guitarist was playing - Walter Silva - he was fantastic. The town of Mogan, which is a short stroll from the hotel, is beautifully kept and consists of small streets and waterways full of beautiful flowers and trees. There is a good selection of cafes and shops in the town and on the harbour/beech front. Overall we had one of our best holidays ever and will certainly be returning to the hotel.

We also like that the majority of staff have been working there for many years and welcome us back like old friends each and every time we visit.

Had the most wonderful two week break at the Cordial Mogan Playa, and really can only reiterate all that everyone else has commented on before, it is a beautiful hotel, lovely grounds, very clean, plentiful choice of food, short walk to Mogan, which again is very pretty. But the best aspect of the holiday were the staff, everyone of them were friendly, smiling and helpful, and if they had the time, always up for a little chat and a laugh, which was lovely. My Husband and I are looking forward to, hopefully going back in October, thats if we can get booked, it is a very popular hotel we have found.

Returned from a week's stay at this hotel. The atmosphere is very relaxed and nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff. The registration was faultless and the information given was clear, the glass of bubbly unexpected but refreshing after our long journey. The restaurants are run extremely efficiently and the food is fantastic with a huge selection, everyone is catered for. The Gauryes a la carte restaurant is well worth a visit. We ate there on our anniversary and the food was exceptional, beautifully presented and the staff were unobtrusive but attentive - well done Christina and colleagues. Our room was spacious, clean and airy. The pools were lovely and well maintained. The bars well staffed and the gardens really beautiful. The evening entertainment was very varied and a lot of effort made to keep the guests happy - particular the 'Three Tenors' - WOW! The hotel also has an archeological site! All in all we are looking to return next year - the weather helped too! Thanks again Cordial Mogan Playa.

Just returned after a week at this hotel, had a brilliant holiday, our first visit to Gran Canaria and this hotel one of the best I have ever stayed in. The hotel is immaculate, the gardens surrounding the hotel are amazing, never seen so many different plants and flowers, the garden staff do a brilliant job, there are little waterfalls throughout the hotel, rooms are big and comfortable, with a fridge,kept spotless by the staff. The staff at this hotel are so helpful, the see to your every need, the food is excellent, lots of choice breakfast and evening meal, we stayed half board, good thing is you can change your evening meal to lunch if you want to, so if you fancy going down to the marina one night to eat at one of the many great restaurants there, if you fancy a change. It's about a 10 min walk to the beutiful Marina,there is also a supermarket opposite the hotel. There are two pools to go too, one quiet and the other with various activities and we had no problem getting a sun lounger, pools were great and towels provided by the hotel, our flight home was at night, check out was midday but we could still have full use of all the hotel facilities and there is a courtesy room available with showers complete with shower gel, fresh towels, hair dryer, even beds that we could use to freshen up before we had to leave for our flight home. I can not find fault with this hotel, the management have done an brilliant job at running this hotel You won't find better than this hotel, should be 5 stars

Die grosse Anzahl der Reisenden, die immer wieder zurückkommen, spricht für sich selbst. Wir waren jetzt zum achten Mal dort und der einzige Trost bei der Abreise war,dass wir schon wieder eine neue Buchung für Ende November haben. Die ganze Anlage ist herrlich mit den beiden grosszügig angelegten Poolzonen zwischen Palmen und blühenden Sträuchern, wo man nie das Gefühl bekommt in einem sehr grossen Hotel zu sein. Schon das Frühstück ist ein Erlebnis. Man kann es im Wintergarten, im Speisesaal oder auf der Terrasse einnehmen und die Auswahl der Speisen ist so ausgiebig, was es dort nicht gibt, gibt es nicht. Aber das wichtigste in diesem Hotel ist das Personal. Es ist unfassbar wie sie es schaffen, immer so freundlich, zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit zu sein und jegliches Problem schnellstens zu lösen.

We have just returned from our 5th year at Mogan and I am pleased to say that nothing has changed and the hotel still has the high standards that are so much its selling point. The staff are exceptional and nothing is to much trouble for them as we required extra pillows, toppers and a kettle which were all supplied within minutes of arrival. As we have been on a number of occasions we know the system they use for breakfast and dinner and would advise newcomers to walk around the restaurant area and become fully aware of the vast array of superb quality food selections available rather than picking up a plate and walking about looking slightly overawed by the choices of food. The pool and gardens are a true joy and are a real plus to this already superb establishment so spend some time at both of them and relax at the spa or if you feel like a change of pace then go to the local market in Mogan every Friday which is an experience in itself! We so enjoy the atmosphere that the Cordial Mogan Playa has and will be booking for 2015 very soon so come and join the growing army of fans of this very special place!

We have just returned from 10 blissful nights at the Cordial Mogan Playa and leaving was very hard. From the minute we walked into reception the friendly and courteous staff did all they could to make ours a holiday to remember. We arrived late in the evening but despite this, the reception staff made sure we got something to eat in the restaurant and what terrific food it was. With countless options of high quality, we certainly didn’t go hungry throughout our stay and breakfast was just as good with fresh pancakes, omelettes and amazing fruit just a small selection of what was on offer. On top of the great food and service it’s the little things that can make all the difference with our spacious room overlooking one of the two huge pools cleaned every day and a bowl of fruit on our arrival was another nice touch – as was the fresh pool towels every day. The hotel complex is maintained beautifully with rock pools, waterfalls, one of the best hotel receptions we’ve ever seen, add to the amazing gardens that are worth exploring on their own…and if this wasn’t enough it’s a short walk to a beautiful harbour and beach. A special mention must also go the Julia in the Mini Club she was brilliant with the youngsters, they all loved her. Our three year old loved the activities throughout the day and the other animation team staff for organising the mini-disco each night – a real hit with the little ones. We couldn’t find a fault with our stay and this gem of a resort and would recommend it to all our friends. The only disappointment was having to leave…but we were already planning our next trip back while on the way to the airport.

We stayed at the Mogan Playa just over a week ago and it was our forth visit to the hotel. I must say that this hotel is amazing and every time we've been to stay it has been pleasant. The staff are all very friendly and will do there upmost to do everything you ask. We are a family of 5 with 3 children under the age of 8 and they are all well catered for from the daytime around the pool area, kids club to the mini disco at the evening. Also we find this hotel to be reasonable on drink prices as we charge all the drinks to the room and at the end of our stay we pick up the bill, which can sometimes be a nail biter but on our previous stays certainly isn't. (10% discount card). We have booked for New Year again as we went last year & really enjoyed it as the weather was in the 70s everyday which added to our great stay once again at the Mogan Playa.

We have just returned from a 16 day holiday at this hotel.We have never written a review about a holiday ever in the 50 years we have travelled the world but really feel we need to praise this hotel for the fantastic time we received. We had a junior suite on full board plus status. From our arrival to our departure we could not fault our visit.Staff were so courteous, friendly and were always ready to assist.To mention a few;Christian,Claudia,the pool lifeguard who lives across the road from the hotel,the pool exercise girl,the breakfast and evening meal staff, the entertainment guys,the gardeners maintaining the fabulous grounds of the hotel, the cleaners, in fact everyone who makes this hotel run like clockwork. They all work hard and deserve a big thanks from us. We are definitely returning in 2015 and we hope to re-aquaint with all the friends we made. The hotel is by normal standards quite large, exceptionally clean and modern, and the food etc.,excellent. I hope no one finds this review boring but it is a great hotel, well run and in fantastic location. See you soon many, many thanks.

This hotel was recommended by friends and it did not disappoint. We spent a week (2 adults and 2 children aged 7 and 6) at the Cordial Mogan Playa during the May half-term holiday. We arrived late in the evening following a flight by Thomson (2 hours late leaving Gatwick!); despite our late arrival the private taxi from the airport (organised by Thomson) was excellent. The staff at the hotel at 3 a.m made us feel very welcome and we quickly settled into our adjoining rooms, which were very spacious and spotlessly clean. We had booked half board and this was perfect for our needs. You were very much spoilt for choice at breakfast and dinner - the food was first class during our stay and the staff in the main restaurant were both courteous and attentive. The hotel's facilities were also excellent - our girls loved the pools and kids' club. This hotel was perfect for our family needs and we are very much looking forward to our next visit. Some of the guests that we talked to had stayed at the hotel over 8 times - a great indication that the Cordial Mogan Playa had found a winning formula. Great staff, great food and a really lovely hotel to take your mind off the pressures of everyday life!

We stayed at this hotel for the first time in early April, although we have visited Puerto de Mogan a number of times before, staying in apartments. This is an excellent hotel which is very well managed, set in beautiful gardens and in a charming resort. The only issues which I could point out are fairly minor and these have been addressed by other reviewers. We will certainly be returning for another winter/spring break and have joined Club Cordial so that we can benefit from 10% discount on drinks etc.

My Wife and I stayed again after two years I was impressed with the hotel, staff and the special people who remembered us from our last visit. I would recommend to anyone who want to go on a holiday to remember the Cordial Mogan Playa is the place to stay. Thanks again for your detail especially for my wifes birthday, it meant a lot and she was so happy for the whole evening the flowers, cake and the staff that sang happy birthday and the bottle of bubbly you kindly gave us See you in Two years time Len and Sally Whayman

Herzlich, freundlich, warm, aufrichtig, belebend, stärkend, ist die Wortbedeutung von "cordial". Da können wir nach einem tollen Urlaub im Mai 2014 fast nichts mehr hinzufügen. Als Großfamilie mit drei kleinen Kindern (2,3,6 Jahre) haben wir nun zum sechsten Mal im Cordial Mogan Playa drei Wochen Urlaub verbracht und wir werden immer wieder kommen. Dieses Mal war alles mehr als perfekt, obwohl wir das erwartet hatten: Der Service aufmerksam und immer superfreundlich, schnell und zuvorkommend. Der Poolservice nicht zu überbieten. Die Zimmer täglich gereinigt, sauber und frisch. Reklamationen werden immer und sofort ernst genommen und sofort nachgearbeitet. Das Essen hat nochmals zugelegt, eine riesige Auswahl verschiedener Vor- und Hauptspeisen und vom überwältigenden Angebot an Nachspeisen gar nicht zu reden. Ein perfekter, toller Urlaub! Unsere Kinder wurden sehr herzlich und bestens von dem Miniclub-Team betreut, Claudia ist schlichtweg die Seele des Teams und nicht wegzudenken. Das Essen im a-la-carte Restaurant Guayres verdient immer noch einen Stern im Michelin und Henry, der Oberkellner kommt jederzeit in jedem Restaurant dieser Welt unter, besser geht´s einfach nicht. Für uns das beste Hotel auf den Kanaren, wir kommen immer wieder und planen bereits den nächsten Urlaub im Cordial!

Desde su inauguración he estado en varias ocasiones en el hotel. Han sido estancias en pareja y en familia. El trato siempre ha sido cordial y atento. La última visita ha sido con motivo de mi cumpleaños y tuvieron muchas atenciones en ese día tan especial. Piscinas muy limpias. Bonitos jardines.

After visiting this hotel for the 4th time it was still as excellent as on the previous occasions. Could not fault any of it . We have been to this hotel both on our own as a couple & also taken children & grandchildren & have found it excellent for all ages. I would return again even though I normally prefer visiting new places. We always feel at home immediately on arrival at this hotel & nothing is too much trouble. This time is we also had a meal in the hotel's A La Carte restaurant which was superb, probably our best meal ever experienced.

Our first visit to this hotel, was not disappointed. Were do I start! Should be 5 star for starters. From the champers on arrival to the speedy checkout at 7am everything was perfect, cannot fault this hotel. The rooms, comfy beds (asked for extra pillows up in 10 mins) fridge for your drinks, rooms cleaned every day. The food was wonderful plenty of choice, even smoked salmon and caviar for breakfast and good old English fry up if you want it. The staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. The gardens are very well cared for and the pools (two huge pools) are heated and the pool waitress (you have a bell) will bring drinks or food to your sunbed. The sunbeds are fab great pads and plenty of pool towels on tap. The spa was fabulous, yes there is a charge 18 euros for 4 hours which is long enough. All the usual in the spa with the addition of a floatation pool, very nice and hot! too. Would I stay again, can't wait I thought I'd died and gone to haven! Well done Cordial Playa.

He estado en casi todos los hoteles de 5 y 4 estrellas de la isla, pero hasta ahora por unas u otras razones no había estado en el Cordial. He pasado cuatro días en este hotel y me he quedado encantado. Globalmente me parece incluso mejor que muchos de los hoteles de 5 estrellas que conozco (este es 4 estrellas plus). Los espacios comunes son muy amplios y con una vegetación exuberante y variada, muy bien cuidada. Las piscinas están muy limpias y hay hamacas suficientes y muy cómodas. La comida, tanto en el bufé del desayuno como en la cena es de muy buena calidad y de una variedad que no he visto en hoteles de mayor clasificación. Supongo que habrá habitaciones de distintos tipos, la que me correspondió a mí era lo suficientemente espaciosa y además contaba con una terraza muy amplia. El Spa no es muy grande pero cuenta con lo suficiente para que te den ganas de pasar allí unas cuantas horas y al igual que el resto del hotel está muy limpio. Tuve la oportunidad de cenar en el Restaurante Los Guayres: Una cena excelente (pedimos el menú degustación), de una gran calidad. Para clientes alojados en el hotel el precio del menú degustación es de 30€ (vino incluido) y para los que vienen de fuera del hotel 45€; no me parece excesivo en ningún caso, dada la excelente calidad de la comida. Después de reflejar todas estas cosas tan positivas poco más y mejor se puede decir...........pues aún puedo decir una más y posiblemente la mejor: el personal del hotel con el que nos encontramos fue en todas partes de una calidad humana, atención y disposición para atender a los clientes magnífica, los mejores profesionales de la hostelería con los que nos hemos encontrado (en Gran Canaria y fuera). En resumen un excelente hotel para volver una y otra vez.

This was our first visit to Cordial Mogan Playa and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, would definitely return in the future. This is a four star hotel but you get five star treatment from the minute you arrive until you leave. The pools and surroundng areas are stunning, everywhere is kept so clean and the staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. There is a very good choice of food at breakfast and dinner time - I am a bit of a fussy eater but there was no problem and everything was nicely presented. The hotel is only a few minutes away from the main resort which is very pretty, we had a great time and would have no hesitatation in recommending this hotel to others.

Having returned from our second stay at the Cordial Mogan Playa Hotel, we can only say that we will definitely be going back for another fabulous holiday. The Hotel staff are so accommodating - the majority are the same as the previous year, and nothing is too much trouble. The Hotel is extremely well maintained - the pools were warm and even though the hotel was full, there were always plenty of sunbeds and parasols available. We will definitely be returning to this first class destination.

Vivo en Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, he ido en varias ocasiones y espero volver. ideal para ir con la familia y los niños. Las instalaciones están muy limpias y cuidadas. El servicio es excelente y muy atento. La comida es muy buena y abundante. Da gusto estar en la piscina, rodeado de una vegetación que parece que estamos en la selva. Buena relación calidad/precio. La pena es que estás tan bien en el Hotel, que no te apetece salir a visitar el cercano Puerto de Mogán y, sobre todo, la gran tragedia es el día de dejar el Hotel, pues uno piensa en abandonarlo todo y quedarse a vivir allí.

This is a 4 star plus hotel set in acres of green grounds. The rooms are in groups of five story buildings with several lifts and grouped around the pools. The main reception and dining building is amazing with rivers and waterfalls inside. We went at the beginning of March and the weather was lovely. It has two large pools some distance apart. One is quiet and the other has activities at various times. There is entertainment every evening after dinner if you want it and a couple of nice bars and poolside bars in the day. The restaurant is buffet style with a tremendous choice. All the staff from the reception to the hotel and bar staff are friendly and helpful. The guests are about a third English, a third German and a third Scandinavian. There is no real need to leave the hotel as it is so nice but the small quiet resort of Mogan is only a ten minute walk and half that is through the hotel grounds. There is only one small hotel in Mogan which is very picturesque and built around a marina. There are no high rise hotels. We found it best to pre-book a return taxi from the airport which took 45 minutes. Some people were on a coach for a couple of hours dropping off at other resorts.

On this occasion we didn't book a transfer with the travel company but booked direct through the hotel. There were four of us and we were greeted in the arrivals hall by the driver who took us to our seventeen seater minibus. Plenty of room there then! Journey to hotel took approximately 40 minutes, all motorway and tunnels. Greeted on arrival with a cold glass of white wine whilst one of the staff took our cases to our rooms. This is our second time at the hotel and on this occasion we were in block 5. Rooms seem to be exactly the same whatever block you're in. Room was spotless and well appointed. For those who like to watch tv there is a flat screen with a USB input if you want to bring your own films. Main pool is heated and a perfect temperature to compensate the glorious sunshine. What makes this hotel so special for us is the quality of the food. If you want something for breakfast then they have it. Always at least four or five different cuts of meat for dinner. Normally when we stay half board we end up eating out at least two or three times as the food gets repetitive. Not at this place. We actually looked forward to dinner. Staff are extremely polite and courteous and can't do enough for you. We didn't really drink at the hotel as the beach and local bars are about three hundred yards from the back gate of the hotel. This hotel may be a little more expensive than other 4* places in the Canaries but it's worth every penny.

Lauri A,
These apartments were beautiful. A few years back I stayed at the Cordial Green Golf across the road so I was expecting a little less but was very happy! Rooms were very clean and regular maid visits were made. Pool area was fairly quiet and chilled which was nice. About 20 minute walk to Playa De Inglis night life or 10 minute walk to Faro shopping centre which doesn't contain much but does have a large supermarket and a few restaurants. Staff were very friendly and helpful, would definitely stay here again. I've stayed at Vista Flor, about 5-10 minutes along the road, for past 3 years but these are just as nice!

I have been to the canaries on 10 occasions and have never found a hotel that I consider perfect! Until now ! From the champagne at check in we have been impressed by every stage of our stay. The junior suites are just the right size and immaculate, the meals are always served cold or hot as the case may be and the half board + plus status was a great buy as the house wine the beer and soft drinks were of decent quality and served as if you were paying top dollar and always with a smile. The grounds are a credit to the groundsman. I searched to find an untidy border in the whole vast complex but could not find one. The place is obviously managed by passionate people and the staff follow, not once did I see or hear any bad word or temper from any team member and this says a lot. I have travelled a lot and I do expect a lot but this hotel delivered on every level. I will book again and promote this great find.

My self, my wife, two little munchkins (ages6&4) together with the in laws spent a fantastic 9 nights in this gorgeous complex during this years Easter break. The hotel had everything - great location, great food, great entertainment, great and friendly staff (and water yoga for the two women :-). We have found a lot of the towns and accommodation to be pretty average in the Canaries, but, this hotel and town definitely bucks the trend. The port town itself is gorgeous ( but definitely more pricey than most locations in the Canaries). However, having stayed in lots of different towns over the years in both Gran Canaria and Lanzarote - we have finally found the perfect place for us to return to. Only minor criticism is that most of the kids club activities for the younger kids was indoors. We would have preferred if the were outdoors, although our two weren't bothered with the club most of the time anyway. Definitely one to recommend. The hotel has something for everyone ( although I put on half a stone with that fantastic breakfast buffet of theirs :-)

This Hotel offers excellent value for money and exceeded all our expectations. The gardens are magnificent and the Hotel is spotless and offers a variety of delicious food and good, friendly service. The swimming pools are beautiful and the sunbeds are comfortable and they supply clean towels daily. This Hotel has a lot to offer but read their magazine to help take advantage of all that is available. Puerto Mogan is a lovely little harbour full of character with enough bars, rest & shops to keep your interest and the marina, small streets and canals offer a lovely atmosphere. We are already planning a return visit.

Had my first visit here in May, and was not disappointed, would def recommend and return. The staff are efficient, professional and engaging. Food was great considering it was the buffet style. I would agree with other reviewers it is an odd lay out of food at the buffet, some main dishes and one side of the room, and others at the other. Both pools are clean and surprisingly warm. Sun loungers comfy with the extra mattress on them. Well done to the team.

Found this hotel wonderful and everything is done to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. Lovely marina and beach area with lots of little cafes to eat or just have a quiet drink. This was our first stay and we don't normally return to the same hotel twice but would break that rule as this hotel was so special. Restaurant was busy but the food was excellent, no complaints, would recommend this hotel without hesitation as long as you enjoy a quiet resort.

Just come back from a marvellous stay in the Cordial. Everything about this hotel makes sure you are soon relaxed to enjoy your holiday. The staff and cleanliness of this hotel is second to none. We had half board plus which we mostly used for lunch as we like to go out to eat in the evening. Plenty of excellent restaurants near by but by far the best is the restaurant attached to the hotel, The Guyeres, absolutely first class. Can't wait for our next visit.

We've just come back from our 7th stay at this great hotel and it was the 3rd stay with our son, who is now 4 1/2 years old. This hotel offers great accommodation, a fantastic kids club (run mainly by Julia, who is fantastic !!!), a great location, great service and a relaxed environment. If you take the half board package, then you can also swap dinner for lunch and enjoy one of the many restaurants in the harbour, which is only a short stroll away. The beach is within a few minutes walk of the hotel and is great for families.

Another great holiday from Thomas Cook We enjoyed this holiday so much we have re booked for this October Coach from the airport with stop offs takes about forty mins Checking in was simple and efficient with a welcome glass of carver Porter takes your cases to the room Hotel The minute you walk into the hotel it smells lovely and has a great feel to it All the comments on trip advisor are spot on as this really is a great hotel Throughout our holiday staff cant do enough to make your holiday what it should be, fun relaxing and something to remember Rooms Our room was positioned in courtyard with fantastic palm trees and even a fishpond block 7000 Well laid out but I will e mail the hotel ahead of our October holiday and ask if they can provide extra hangers Toilets well stocked There is a mini bar facility which just outside the hotel is a Spa shop so we stocked with cold drinks Food Got to say the food is 100%, great variety, brilliant staff You have to provide your choice of sitting we went for 8pm This gave us enough time around the pool and to get back and change without rushing TIP I will e mail ahead and ask for a table on the Terrace, these tables are in an area that is enclosed but feels like you are sitting Al Fresco, plants etc, really pretty. We booked into the other restaurant which you have to pay for and this is really good value Steak was one of the best one of our groups had eaten Pools There are two main pool areas We went for the area past the tennis courts Plenty of sun beds You can ask for a buzzer that you can put by your sun bed and ring for service Nice touch Entertainment They put on kids shows early in the evening and then have various nights The Grease show put on by staff we thought was excellent However some of the others where a little tame There is a smoking area outside the door to the far left that feels like you are in some cave area, nice little spot for those wanting a smoke Drinks are good value We was in a group of four, and did not hold back, drinks, cocktails at night, drinks around the pool during the day with snacks, and bill was around £1000 for the group From the pool mentioned you will see a small church / chapel in the grounds At night the grounds are beautifully lit, Follow the path and it takes you to a gate at the rear of the hotel This gate takes you to the Spa shop and into the Harbor area Harbor Puerto de Mogan There are some nice bars around this area We walked in one day when football was on and found several bars showing sport All have free Wi Fi Can recommend the Irish bar, nice people, good service and to our surprise the food was really excellent Overall loved this Hotel and am looking to our return in October

He vuelto a repetir experiencia en el hotel y la verdad es que la experiencia ha sido completamente diferente. El check in excelente a nivel de información y servicio tanto por recepción como por el acompañamiento a la habitación, las materias primas de los desayunos y comidas excelente, quizás con esa calidad en la materia prima se le podría sacar un poco mas de provecho a las comidas, la fruta espectacular, las mejores papas arrugadas que he comido jamas en un restaurante, la carne fresca y de alta calidad. La situación del hotel con respecto a la playa es muy buena si te quedas en las habitaciones cercanas al final del hotel ya que esta a 2 minutos caminando de la playa. El tiempo donde esta situado el hotel inmejorable prácticamente todo el año por algo mogan es el municipio de europa con mas horas de sol al año. Las hamacas y la piscina es de las mejores con el agua climatizada a 25º, es un placer darse un baño una vez que se ha ido el sol, aunque es una pena que la piscina cierre a las 18:00 h Las habitaciones son cómodas, el colchón de la cama es muy confortable pero avisad si sois paraja para que unan las camas. Mi pareja se hizo una sesión de masaje y estética en el SPA y su impresión fue inmejorable ambas cosas, en el trato en la técnica. Los jardines y cuidados exteriores del hotel son excelentes y tienen una variedad de actividades como sala de juegos, bowling, pista de squash, tenis. En definitiva un hotel que se ve que esta en continua mejora de su calidad y servicios y con una incansable de mejora. Una mención especial al director Alberto por sus gestiones para hacernos sentir la verdadera experiencia del Cordial Mogan y a Marcos por su amabilidad durante el fin de semana.

A wonderful time in this beautiful hotel. Everything was first class. I had very high expectations After reading all the reviews. Everything was great, the view from our lovely well appointed room. The pools were great plenty comfortable sun beds. Food in restaurant great in particular the Al a Carte restaurant attached fantastic. A very high standard of cleanliness throughout. All the little touches made it a very special experience. It was my birthday at the time and a bottle of bubbly was in my room with a pretty little cake and a free entry for myself and my husband to the spa. Their was nothing you could fault. As for the staff first class. A very pleasant stay and I will recommend it to my friends and I know we will return. Thank you every one at the hotel for mag King our holiday. Oh not to forget the resort was pretty and very nice.

We stayed at the hotel in May 2014 for a week and found the whole experience amazing. The room was large, very well furnished and cleaned to a very high standard every day. We received complimentary champagne on arrival and one member of the party was left a bottle of champagne and cake in the room on her birthday without any prompting . WOW ( customer service of the highest degree) The food was excellent and indeed the hardest thing to do was choose from the great variety on offer at each meal. Staff were all excellent with a young scottish girl on reception standing out in particular giving visit/sights advice and generally making sure we were all happy with everything. Facilities were fantastic and it would have been really easy not to leave the hotel for the whole of our stay.However the island of Gran Canaria is lovely and i would suggest that anyone visiting should allow time to travel around. Porto Mogan itself is a lovely little fishing village but might be found a touch quiet for some. An excellent choice for anyone wanting to really relax.

This will now be our 6th stay in the hotel. Why? Well, it's like putting on a comfy pair of shoes - they always fit and are familiar; so is the hotel. We have had fantastic service in the restaurant with the restaurant staff being helpful and providing that little extra by bringing something over and above the vast choice of food, if requested. The grounds and hotel are kept clean and the staff helpful. The location is great with no traffic problems and the port only a short walk away. Let's hope the weather will also live up to our expectations.

Estuvimos en Semana Santa, en régimen de MP en una habitación suite. Las instalaciones del hotel están muy bien: las dos piscinas climatizadas, las instalaciones deportivas, los jardines y zonas verdes interiores (que estaban muy cuidadas y bonitas), la habitación, etc. La habitación (suite) con mucha luz y muy tranquila. Amplia y con dos split de aire acondicionado (uno en el dormitorio y el otro en el salón). El baño amplio, con bañera y ducha. El dormitorio amplio. En el salón un sofá cama y dos sillones, con una mesa con el televisor y otra baja. El bufet muy bueno. Tanto en el desayuno como en la cena muy tranquilos, sin aglomeración. Las mesas amplias y con servicio de tela. Los camareros muy atentos y amables en todo momento (pero sin hacerse pesados). Buena variedad de productos (que iban variando a diario) y en la reposición. En la recepción muy amables y atentos. Está a menos de cinco minutos de la playa y de la zona de tiendas. A pesar de que el hotel es grande, no da la sensación de estar masificado. Es muy tranquilo y silencioso. Lo recomiendo si quieres pasar unos días de descanso y tranquilidad, en los cuales te dejas cuidar y mimar.

Stayed for a week over New Year and we were very impressed. The hotel put on a great New Year's Eve party and finished it off with a fantastic fireworks display. Even though the hotel was full, it never felt cramped and sun loungers were relatively easy to get - even later in the day. We had a south facing room with sun on the balcony until 7pm. All very clean and spotless. For buffet style food, you won't get any better anywhere and there is plenty to choose from. We had one meal in their 'al la carte' restaurant and enjoyed the food - we'll worth the small upgrade fee. We also ate out at the ' que tal' - the food was Michelin starred quality and not cheap at 160 euros for 2 - but worth every penny for the ambience, quality and matched wines. The grounds are immaculate and a credit to all the hotel staff who keep it looking lovely. It is only a short walk to the pretty harbour where you will find lots of nice places to eat and drink. We visited a few other places on Gran Canaria and would say that Mogan is definitely the nicest area. We hired a car from autoreisen and had no problems getting there - it is nearly all motorway and only 40 minutes away. Weather was a nice 21 degrees throughout the holiday and a perfect winters treat.

Just returned from the Cordial Mogan Playa. This is the fourth holiday we have had at this hotel in the last two years and are due back again at the end of May - so this must tell you something. My wife and I have been as a couple and also with our family which includes our grandson who is pre-school. Either way it is an ideal hotel and location with two superb pools and set in beautiful gardens. The staff are some of the friendliest and most helpful we have come across - nothing is too much trouble. We think that they offer really good value for money at an excellent hotel set in a lovely quiet location. Looking forward to our next holiday.

Once you have found what you are looking for, why go anywhere else? Our family of 5 stayed for a week over the Easter break and loved every minute of our stay. The Cordial Playa is like our second home now. The hotel staff are still first class, nothing is too much trouble for them and the customer always comes first. The whole ambience of the hotel is excellent and the environment quite stunning .Mogan remains the Jewel in the crown of Gran Canaria and my advice for any readers who have yet to make their mind up about booking this hotel is simply to do it! There is absolutely nothing to dislike about the place. My family and I cannot wait to go back.

This hotel deserves every great review it gets. We went at the end of March as a family of 4 and stayed in a spacious family room. Everything about this hotel is great; the rooms, the pools (the family one is definitely warmer), the staff, the food, the grounds..... the list goes on. The location is also great, the small fishing village with its sandy beach and marina is picturesque and unspoilt. We stayed half board which suited us as there are 2 supermarkets within a 5 minute walk where you can pick up fresh bread for lunch - you really don't need much lunch after an amazing breakfast and before a fantastic dinner! Can't wait to go back!

Been to the hotel at least 4 times now and the attention to detail is great. Heated pools are the best as it means you can be in them for a long time, especially in April where you need to cool down from the sun but normal water temperature is still cool. Food excellent and entertainment is fun. We will be back. PS a lovely uphill trek along the hills of mogan on the old road give you fabulous views of the harbour, but you will need trainers and water. 1 1/2 hour round trip walk, but well worth doing.

Our third stay at this hotel lived up to our expectations with the previous high standards maintained. This is ideal holiday accomodation for those wishing to either chill out or explore the countyside. The management set high standards for the staff with an ethos of meeting customer expectations and this is well followed through. The close proximity to the centre of Mogan is an extra bonus, offering plenty of options for travelling to other parts of the island and for a wide range of dining. The layout and facilities are so welcolming and well maintained that it is very tempting not to move from the hotel site.

Deuxième séjour dans l'hôtel, en solo cette fois ci. Ce fut parfait... La direction de l'hôtel a mis en place deux services pour le dîner, 18h30 et 20h15. C'est fort agréable de pouvoir choisir et de laisser les familles avec jeunes enfants manger tôt! J'ai découvert que ma chambre (1325) donnait sur une des piscines et cependant, à mon grand soulagement, était très silencieuse le soir. Les buffets sont toujours variés et bons, mention spéciale pour le petit déjeuner avec un choix excellent. Le personnel est particulièrement attentif et souriant! Le cadre est magnifique, l'eau des piscines chauffée, les chaises longues en quantité suffisante, bref je suis aussi satisfaite que lors de mon 1er séjour. J'avais réservé une navette pour mon transfer vers l'aéroport au retour et à 2h20 du matin j'ai particulièrement apprécié de pouvoir accéder au restaurant pour prendre un café! C'est à ces petites attentions qu'on distingue un très bon d'un excellent hotel!

Very comfortable room, excellent food, plenty of activities and entertainment, pools and gardens, proximity to port and beech, great weather not too hot and very friendly staff and general well being.

Nos gusto mucho ...pues hay muchas terrazas donde disfrutar,de acuerdo a la hora o lo que se busque ....conversar, beber, compartir, disfrutar de la belleza de su decoración tan variada y elegante...en fin es un lugar que tiene para escoger sin aburrirse de lo mismo. La piscina la encontramos bien no tuvimos problemas con la temperatura....a poca distancia tiendecitas,.... mercadillo el domingo y el puerto de Mogan..para disfrutarlo caminando por sus calles . También cerca la playa de Mogan si se quiere disfrutar de un dia diferente. El servicio sin problema , al igual que las habitaciones y la variedad de sitios donde elegir alimentarse. La iluminación nocturna en la zona de jardines entre tanta vegetación y piscinas es bella. Volveriamos a repetir

We were a bit apprehensive about going back to the same hotel - would it be as good as we remembered? We need not have worried, as soon as we walked in it all came back, the luxurious reception area, the friendly staff and the relaxing atmosphere. We soon relived the sheer pleasure of just walking round the gardens, well more like a botanical garden, taking in the palms , the cacti and amazing Mediterranean fauna. The rooms were spacious and fully air conditioned and even though it was still February, they were a welcome escape from the mid day sun. Speaking of the weather, we stayed for 28 days last February/March we only had one day of rain and a couple of fully overcast days, which was pretty good going. There was no real change to the food and dining arrangements, excellent is the only fitting term for the quality and standard of service from the busy but attentive waiting staff and the quality of the varied and extensive offerings. Once again we marvelled about how the whole operation ran like well oiled clockwork. We spotted many people who we recognised from last year, and before long met up with one family who had returned every year for seven years - maybe that will be us one day. One thing to remember is to get a Club Cordial Welcome back card from reception because it entitles you to 10 percent off things bought at bars and the dining room ( on subsequent visits) and it soon adds up !!! This advantage also applies to dining in the hotel's Los Guayres restaurant, which is generally considered to be one of the best, if not the top, restaurant on the island. Those staying half board benefit from an additional 15 euro reduction as well. That is fine dining at a bargain price. There is nightly entertainment held mainly in the bar area next to the dining room. It's usually good but since they try to cover a large range in tastes, not everybody will always like what is on offer, but I imagine that is the case wherever you go and even so, the bar area itself is very pleasant and once the entertainment has finished it is a good place to relax and let the world go by. One of the more unusual features we liked was the service around the pools. Scattered around amongst the sunbeds are little white coloured discs. You press one and magically a waiter/pool attendant appears to take your order - not quite as fast as Aladdin but equally effective. So in conclusion, it's a place where you can have a good relaxing holiday and eat good food in pleasant surroundings. So go!!

Second visit to this hotel, and just as good as the first. now a member of Club cordial, we had an excellent room overlooking the smaller pool, afternoon sun up to 6.30pm. We had a welcome gift of fruit,, flowers and wine, and also my birthday fell during the week, cake delivered to our room, and sparkling wine with our meal, all with compliments of the hotel, nice touch. The hotel are now actively tackling the problem of reserving of sunbeds, by only allowing people to reserve for an hour only, then towels are removed, seems to work, One suggestion, coffee to be available in the restaurant after the evening meal? Will definitely return

I went there with my wife and 2 kids for a week. We had a fantastic stay. Despite being half board, the food was great, and any extras we bought, such as drinks and ice creams by the pool were very reasonably priced. There was also, lots for our 2 youngs sons to do throughout the stay. Being close to the beach and other bars and restaurants was also great. The hotel also has free wifi in most areas which is a nice bonus. We'll be going back this year.

This was our 3rd stay at the Cordial MoganPlaya. We stayed the first week in April, the weather was glorious. The staff at the hotel are really friendly and helpful and do their utmost to meet your wishes. The pools are lovely and warm and there are plenty of sunbeds. We have already booked to return for 2 weeks in September. The rooms are nicely decorated and furnished with a balcony with table and two chairs. The hotel is kept spotlessly clean and staff always have a smile. Puerto Mogan is a lovely little place with plenty of shops and restaurants and a charming harbour and beach.

We have just returned from yet another perfect week at this wonderful hotel in Puerto Mogan. The staff cannot be more helpful and friendly, this is our 6th visit and we have booked to go back again in September and we believe our standards to be very high! The food continues to be excellent, with a good choice of food for all nationalities and preferences. The rooms are kept immaculately clean and the maids work hard to make your space clean and tidy on a daily basis. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble for any member of staff at this hotel and the standards in all aspects remain consistenly high. That is why we will continue to holiday at this hotel on a regular basis. I can recommend the top pool restaurant for Tapas which is very very good. The Los Guayros restaurant is amazing and must be tried once at least. We have experienced some very nice luxury holidays and this is certainly one of them. Enjoy!!!

We spent an excellent week at this lovely hotel at the beginning of April. The junior suite was perfect for our needs and set in the beautiful grounds of this complex. Having eaten to excess each evening in the buffet or hotel a la carte restaurant we were grateful for the walk back through the well kept gardens with their mature subtropical plants. The service from all staff in all areas was great and nothing was too much trouble. We certainly intend to return to the cordial Morgan player and would look no further for a location for a lazy holiday in the sun. However if you are looking for a more active environment there was plenty on offer ... We just chose to sit by the pool, read and relax taking dip in the warm pool every day.

We have been to the Cordial Mogan Playa on several previous occasions and it is now a firm family favourite. Our last visit was in the first week of April when we had really good weather. Our family group includes a range of ages and it has now become a tradition to celebrate our birthdays at the hotel and there is no better way of celebrating a birthday at the Los Guayres restaurant. Excellent food, wine and service is always guaranteed. The same can also be said for the buffet style breakfasts and evening meals where there is a wide range of superbly prepared foods on offer. One noteable feature of the hotel is the friendliness of the staff and the efficient way they maintain a high standard of service and hotel cleanliness. On our last visit we were really pleased to see that that the hotel has taken steps to minimise the 'towel reservation' of sunbeds which has brought a big improvement in availability. We will be back at the hotel in October to celebrate another family birthday.....can't wait !

Just returned from a lovely weeks holiday with 2 young children staying at the hotel. All the staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Everywhere was extremely clean and I couldn't fault it. The buffet was very plentiful, although some careful choosing was required sometimes and could be bland for some, but the freshly cooked meat was great. The area was lovely with no yobs or loud music so felt very safe. We've just booked another week there and can't wait to return!

I recenty spent a week at this hotel with my husband and it was a fantastic experience. The Reception Staff were very welcoming and the guy who took us with our luggage to our room, gave us such a good overview of the facilities available, I was impressed by his knowlege and speed. The staff were always very helpful. There is something for everyone at this hotel. The start of our holiday was children free and once Easter holidays got on the way more children arrived, making the hotel very lively, but not noisy, and they were plenty of activities for them. Although buffet style, the food was sooo good. The Chefs did a fantastic job cooking to order.. Entertainment very good. Beach within 500 metres, lots of restaurants to choose from, all with very good food. The beach was very clean and uncrowded with good facilities. We took a ferry to Puerto Rico and Arguineguin and this was very enjoyable although a little pricey at 38 Euros. The Resort was easy to get around and the weather for the time of year started off a bit cool, with lots of sun between10:30 - 4:30, however once the sun disappeared it became very cool quickly. If visiting during early April, I would strongly recommend a cardigan/jacket, if wanting to take an evening stroll.

Hope we can return next year.

We stayed for a week in early April. We had stayed at this hotel on previous occasions so we were well prepared as to what we could and could not do. The transfer coach took about 40 minutes from the airport to the hotel. The girl on reception spoke very good English and explained everything in detail and we had a champagne (cava) reception while we waited for the bell boy. We were a family of 6 ranging between the mid 50's to mum who was 85. We were delighted to be allocated 3 rooms next to one another. The rooms were reasonably sized and each had a balcony with a table and 2 chairs (there was an extra chair inside) and this proved an excellent vantage point looking over the pool area while we drank our G&T's watching the sun set - Pure bliss. We all had a good nights sleep (I needed an extra pillow which I found in the wardrobe) then it was down for breakfast. The food, which is all self service, consisted of everything you would ever want ranging from numerous fruits, cold meats and cereals to freshly cooked bacon, eggs and omelets. There was a wide range of cold drinks plus various coffees and teas and there was even Cava and Vodka? The dinner in the evening was also like a banquet with all manner of hot and cold meats as well as a choice of freshly cooked fish. They also had soups and various vegetables.The desserts were more European in nature (cold rather than hot) but I especially liked the chocolate fountain. We found the drinks waiters attentive and efficient. The hotel is situated a short 10 minute stroll, which has the slightest of inclines, to the beach and marina where there are no end of tavernas and bars. All the staff were so friendly and the complex was spotless. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have already booked to go again in October with 4 generations of our family in the party of 8. Special mention must be afforded to Christian and Monica for there help and assistance in making this a most enjoyable stay.

We returned to this hotel hoping that everything would be as good as last time. I'm pleased to report that most aspects of our stay were even better this time. Following our first visit we had joined the 'Cordial Club', which offers a degree of preferential treatment to members and this may have helped us to get a room in the spot we had requested. The staff are first class and always aim to please. Our room was kept spotless throughout our stay, the reception staff are very professional and always helpful, even when under pressure. There is always a wide range of good quality food and the waiters generally clear dirty plates etc from the tables quickly. The restaurant staff are usually under pressure, but never appear to lose their temper and are always ready with a smile.

This was our third visit, the only hotel we have ever returned to on two more occasions, and we were not disappointed. My two previous favourable reviews still apply. The weather was perfect, and we were greatly refreshed by the week's break. One highlight was the delicious meal at the Los Guayres a la carte restaurant in the hotel - well worth a try (see photo attached). It would be nice to see some new (lighter) décor in the bedrooms for repeat visitors, but as there are no off-seasons and the hotel is usually fully booked, that may prove difficult. Fun highlights were a demonstration on making sangria, with free tasting at the end; aquazumba; and Mam Mia performed by gifted members of the animation team. Definitely our top hotel and one we hope to return to again.

Spent 11 days at the lovely hotel in early February 2014. Booked it after reading such glowing reports on Trip Advisor and wasn't disappointed in any way. Wanted a sunshine break in winter for my Dad and myself. My Dad had his 86th birthday whilst we were there and he received a Birthday letter and cake from the hotel management (unprompted by me, they just noticed and put them in our room whilst we were out for the day). A nice, thoughtful touch. Dad was thrilled (he thought it was my doing initially!). The hotel complex is huge with lots of different accommodation blocks built around quadrangle gardens which are just amazing. Large trees, plants, waterfalls, bridges, stepping stones etc. I'm sure later in the season there would be spectacular flower displays but in January there were only a few plants in flower. Inside the main hotel the gardens continue with more streams, waterfalls, bridges and even more outside around the pools. It really is more like a botanical garden. The hotel was spotlessly clean everywhere. Even around the pools the 'sandy beaches' were raked and cleaned every evening. Rooms were cleaned daily and beds were comfortable without any plastic covered mattresses. DVD player was provided - a pleasant surprise. We took a travel kettle but could have borrowed one at no charge from reception. Have never come across this service before. Large beach towels provided at check in for use around the pool. Change them as often as you like for a clean one. The food in the restaurant was mostly well cooked and plentiful - eat as much as you dare but you'll come home a stone heavier if you do! Never had to queue more than a minute or two at the 'a la carte' counter and fish and meat cooked to your preferred taste. There are 2 sittings in the evening and you need to select this on arrival (and keep to your choice for the duration of your stay) but this seemed to work very well. We opted for 1st sitting, could go down anytime between 6 and 7pm and as long as we were out by 8pm, there was no rush or pressure from staff. The restaurant is large and things are spread out over a large area with fish in one corner and meat at the opposite end, with food stations for the 'help yourself' food at both places. Soup and cold meats/salads and puddings/sweets scattered around in between. For those with mobility problems, this might mean quite a lot of too-ing and fro-ing unless someone is with you to go and collect it for you. Tea and coffee at breakfast served in pots on your table - non of these hot drinks machines we've experienced in previous hotels. For those with mobility issues (like my Dad) I would recommend emailing the hotel in advance and ask for a room in the first accommodation block nearest reception, preferably get a room near a lift too. We did this and were glad we did. My Dad walks okay without a stick but he still struggled to get from our room to the restaurant as it is quite a long way and involved 2 lifts. We ended up hiring a motorised scooter through reception for a week (about 90 euros) which was delivered to hotel for us. You can also get wheelchairs and frames and all manner of gadgets from the same company. The scooter meant my Dad wasn't exhausted by the time he got to the restaurant and meant I could leave him during the day and he could get to and from our room to the pool etc. any time he wanted. Puerto de Mogan is also flat enough to tour about on one of these scooters without any difficulty. We also used it to have a grand tour of the hotel and gardens which my Dad couldn't have managed on foot. If you want a room with sun on the balcony you'll need to be on 4th or 5th floor (some 3rd floor ones okay) as the trees are so tall in places any sun or scenery is blocked. Many balconies do not have much outlook at all or may be in total shade so don't be afraid to email your request in advance - the hotel was most helpful to my request. There was evening entertainment every night - some better than others and may not suit all tastes. Upstairs in the bar there was a violinist some evenings and a pianist too one night. They were okay but not the best. As background music the violin was fine but the pianist was a bit too loud - and I didn't rate his singing..... but others guests seemed to enjoy them so maybe just not my taste. Can't add any more to the other reviews already posted. It really is by far the best hotel I have stayed in and I know my Dad was similarly impressed. It helped that we had some lovely weather with lots of sunshine and no wind (previous holidays in Tenerife and Lanzarote were cold in comparison) but maybe we were just lucky this time. Thank you to all staff at this fantastic hotel for looking after us so well. We hope to come back next year.

I don't often write reviews...but on this occasion I felt the need! We visited gran canaria ..cordial playa de mogan holt last May. It was so good we have booked to visit again this April. The hotel is fantastically located close to beach and restaurants...should you want to leave hotel. It has two fantastic large pools...and a great kids club. My hubby and I had one of the junior suites...it was immaculately clean and ideal for a family. Having the little garden made it very convenient with the children. The staff could not of helped us more...they accommodated our needs and made us feel very valued as a guest. It really isn't often that we return to a resort but we don't feel there is a better place for us. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a hassle free...relaxing family holiday.

Hotel is spotless and the staff very friendly. We stayed half board the food is of a good standard and plenty of choice as is usual for buffet restaurants, plenty of fresh meat and fish cooked by chefs so never had to wait very long. The marina is a ten minute walk which has an abundance of lovely restaurants and is very pretty. We stayed in the block looking over the pool which had plenty of afternoon and evening sunshine. Once again an enjoyable week of relaxation and sunshine for myself, husband and teenage daughter.

The room and balcony was large and clean as was the bathroom with bath and shower. The breakfasts and evening dinners were excellent with a very large choice of freshly cooked meats and fish. We have never seen such beautiful and well-kept gardens with such exotic plants. Puerto Mogan is a beautiful port with a lovely beach. There is a huge selection of bars and restaurants around the port. Plenty to do if you wish and a super place to relax.

The staff were most welcoming and professional. We had half board and the quality and variety of the food was first class. We will need to diet! Above all we loved the superb gardens with the huge variety of plants and trees, all well-maintained and labelled. Puerto Mogan was the prettiest place we saw on the island and there were lots of bars and restaurants in the flower-bedecked streets and around the harbour. We did not want to leave and we will definitely be back.

Just returned from a week at the cordial playa. The hotel is beautiful, staff all excellent, and standard of food very high. Cannot fault the hotel in any way. The hotel is in a nice area about five to ten minute walk to picturesque marina and beach. My husband and I dont usually go half board as we enjoy eating out and find we can sometimes tire of hotel food, however this was not the case in the mogan playa as the variety on a daily basis was excellent. Special mention to the young man who seemed to be in charge of the entertainment programme. His language skills were very impressive and he managed to communicate effectively with a wide range of tourist from varying countries. Looking forward to a return visit next year.

We spent 2 wonderful weeks in Cordial Playa. First week together with family members ,19 in all. Second week with good friends. This was our second stay. First visit four years ago,when I decided this was The Place for my anniversary celebration, So I started saving money. We had half board pension , chose dinner buffet and experienced an abundance of various delightful dishes. Even kids and youngsters were more than satisfied. On request we had a suite with a little private garden. Beautiful. And a nice place to have a garden-party with strawberries , cream and cava. Swimming-pools were excellent for all of us. From 5 years to 70. We all like a little warm water! Birtday-party at Zona Verde was delightful. In the garden. Long table, candle lights, and a large grill Chateaubriand was a masterpiece with all its accessories. Personal at Cordial Playa were all very nice and helpful,willing to find solutions when necessary. Puerto de Mogan is a lovely picturesque little village , hope it doesn't change too much. Fireworks at Playa de Canteras the last day of the Carnival in Las Palmas was an extra bonus before returning home.

Having read some of the many reviews for this hotel, my wife and I booked a two week holiday there commencing in late February on a half-board basis. We thought that if only half of the good things we had read about were true then we should have a good time there. In reality it was all true! The gardens, the food, the friendly staff, that amazing reception building - splendid. No wonder just about everyone we got chatting to had been before, some of them many times. All this set in the very pretty village of Puerto Mogan. We look forward to another visit soon

Just back from 2 weeks in this lovely hotel. A lot of people return here several times. It was our first stay here although we have been visiting Gran Canaria at this time of year for about 15 years. Temperatures in the twenties during the day,a bit cooler in the morning and evening. Puerto de Mogan is the nicest tourist area on the island. It is south west. We have found it windier in the south east. The food in the hotel is delicious. Outside there are two pools and jacuzzis. There is an umbrella and table/stool for every two sun beds. The pool towels are large and free. They can be changed each morning at the pool. The rooms are large with a Queen sized bed, small fridge and glasses, and plenty of storage. There is no kettle but one can be hired or bring travel kettle. TV and DVD player. DVDs can be hired for 10Euro deposit returnable from hotel shop. There was no BBC1 or 2 reception when we were there but there are news channels in English and True Movies. Safe rental about 15Euros a week. Air con. quiet and efficient. Bathrooms are large with hair dryer, magnifying mirror and toiletries. Shower over the bath which can be slippy. We asked for a bath mat. Rooms cleaned every day. Clientele mostly seniors but there are some families with under school age children. There is a small kids club. There is a popular cycle hire at hotel. (The Canary Isles are used in winter by serious cyclists to train). Staff are really pleasant and helpful. This resort is the furthest from the airport so be prepared for a long transfer unless in a minibus or taxi. The journey is worth it. We will return here again.

Für die Eltern (um die 80) und für mich (um die 50) ein absolut erholsamer Urlaub.

I stayed at Cordial Mogan Playa with my family for a week last April. The stay could not have been a greater success! The overall facilities, our room, the food, the guests and the swimming pool area exceeded our expectations. We are going back this year!! It is a big hotel, but does not really feel like it. To mention a few highlights: a great variety of tasty food dishes for dinner and a well kept lush garden that kept us smiling...

Our week spent at Cordial Mogan Playa was super. Although a 5minute stroll to the beach & pretty marina area with its inviting restaurants, the hotel's pool and immaculate garden environment provided a relaxing and peaceful area. The restaurant provided an excellent choice of self-service menu. Our room was a 'smaller' one as we had changed from a larger garden view room so that we could have one facing the pool which got some late afternoon sun-for our G&T on the balcony. All the staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. Guess we will be returning for a week of winter sun, or maybe longer, next year.

Just back from a week at the Mogan Playa. It is a huge hotel with nearly 500 rooms and not what we would normally go for, but we wanted a bit of winter sun, not too far from the UK so we thought we would give Puerto Mogan and the Cordial a try. We can only agree with the vast majority of reviews on here, it really is a first rate hotel. We opted for a standard double room and were surprised at how spacious it was, with seats and tables both in the room and on the balcony and more storage space than we needed. We also opted for half board and were again impressed by the range of food provided at breakfast and for dinner. The only downside was having to to choose between a 1800 or 2015 sitting for dinner. It wouldn't be right to to leave this review without mentioning the staff, who were without exception very friendly and efficient. Just watching them at breakfast or dinner was tiring ! The guests last week were predominately Scandinavian with a sprinkling of Brits and Germans and even some Americans. Apart from a few couples with children, I'd say we were in the bottom of the age range at the hotel with most people being retired I would guess. This makes the hotel and indeed the resort a fairly quite and slow paced destination. If you are looking for bars with thumping disco music then you had best head off down the coast ! The only downside was that the beds were a bit hard for our tastes, but you can rent extra mattresses.

Tetford,
This was our first visit to Gran Canaria and we chose this hotel due to the wonderful reviews in Trip Advisor. We were NOT disappointed. Lovely greeting by reception staff on our arrival and we were very happy with the quality & size of our bedroom which was what we had requested. We had half board and the restaurant was fantastic including lovely friendly & efficient service all throughout our stay. The hotel is set within beautiful well maintained tropical gardens. We were very fortunate to be able to stay for 4 weeks - all I can say is that not only do we hope to return in the near future but we would most certainly be returning next February. The evening entertainment especially the "Animation Team" was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our evenings, especially the "pocket editions" of Grease, Mamma Mia and Chicago - we loved it. The management have got it right and everything extremely well organised. Apart from that the hotel is perfectly situated being alongside a very pretty fishing village, beach and port with lovely restaurants, cafes & shops within easy walking distance. The only problem was trying to fit them all in! And my only regret is that if too many people read this I might have a problem getting my next booking! T & S, Hertfordshire

It is almost embarrassing to have nothing new to say about this hotel after our 4th visit.Once again the 1st 2 weeks in February were almost totally sunny every day.The high quality of service,food ,gardens and pools were certainly as good as before and it is hard to believe the fabulous architecture of interior of the main building. The evening entertainment was enhanced by the splendid .presentation of 3 shows by the "--animation"team,Grease,Mama Mia and Chicago.

Vi har vært her i januar de siste 5 årene og har hatt det strålende hver gang. Hotellet er reint og fint med store koselige rom. Vi trives med sol på balkongen om ettermiddagen, med utsikt til frodige planter og flott svømmebasseng. Hotellet har mange aktivitetstilbud,vanngymnastikken kan anbefales. Vi gledet oss hver dag til en velsmakende frokost med storslått utvalg. Hotellets a la carte restaurant kan vi trygt anbefale og sammen med de mange spisestedene ved havna har vi hatt mange koselige kveldsmåltider. Både stedet og hotellet passer oss godt. Vi kommer gjerne tilbake.

We had a lovely week's break here. Our room was facing west, so had the afternoon sun. The best rooms in the winter are probably south facing with west the next best thing. Very relaxed setting, helpful staff and good food. (Buffet style so watch you don't overload your plate!) Easy enough walk to centre of resort which stops short of being too "twee".

Our 7th consecutive visit to celebrate our wedding anniversary - we cannot think of anywhere better to do so! The hotel and staff are superb, as is the cuisine; it's the perfect spot to relax during the winter, now only half an hour from the airport. We spoke with several others there who all endorsed our feelings, some there for the first time, some returning. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff - they live up to their high standards, the customer's happiness and comfort at the top of the agenda. We so look forward to our next! Chris and Kit Slade

This was our first visit to the Cordial Mogan Playa following a recommendation from friends and we were certainly not disappointed, in fact the whole experience far exceeded our expectations. It is an excellent hotel set in beautiful tranquil gardens and is spotlessly clean throughout. We stayed in junior suite which had plenty space and its own private terrace and garden. The staff are friendly and attentive and nothing is too much trouble for them. The quality and selection of food in the main buffet restaurant is very good but, if like me you don't particularly like buffet restaurants then the a la carte restaurant Los Guayres is exceptional. This is a wonderful place to enjoy some winter sunshine, we really didn't want to leave and have already booked for February 2015!!

We spent the last week of january at this beautiful hotel. It has a wonderful well kept garden that gives it a unique touch together with the interesting architecture. Allthough a big hotel it feels smaller because of the small buildings. The service is excellent. We had the half board which is good priced with a variety of canarian and international dishes. It takes a day or two to learn to know what food to choose because of us not speaking spanish (yet :) ). We got a room to the north, quite calm but no sunshine, next time we will try to choose one facing south or west. This was our first visit to Spain and the Canaries but we sure will return here!

Our grandchildren, 2 and 4 years old really enjoyed the Mini disco and were treated with love by everyone in the staff.

This was our 2nd visit to Cordial Mogan Playa and it exceeded our expectations once again. The grounds are lovely and there was always room around one of the amazing pools. The food was the same exceptional high standard as on our last visit 2 years ago and the staff are so friendly and seem really happy in their work. The hotel is classy and modern with a truly relaxing atmosphere. It doesn't take long to unwind and soak up the sunshine in this chic resort. Its a few minutes walk to the beach and lovely harbour, and the bars and restaurants are plentiful and not overly expensive. We found the town rather quiet in the evenings but it was lovely to have a stroll around the harbour after dinner in the hotel. We will certainly return to this classy hotel and lovely resort for another week of winter sun. We can't recommend it highly enough for a relaxing holiday.

We stayed for one week. This is a great hotel. Good location within 5 minutes walk of the Marina. We went half board. The quality of food at breakfast and dinner was excellent. Drinks at dinner are not included. Two lovely pools with plenty of sun loungers. There is a bar by each pool which serves light food, snacks and drinks. The hotel is beautifully maintained and everything is very clean and tidy. The staff could not have been more helpful and pleasant. Our room was spacious with a large ensuite and roomy balcony. The wifi in the room was a bit intermittent but was fine around the rest of the hotel. Checking in and out was very efficient and quick. Apparently you can hire a kettle for the room, which is a very good idea. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Ben van 9/2/2014 tot 16/2/2014 voor derde keer naar dit hotel geweest. Alhoewel ik zelden een hotel meerdere malen bezoek, blijft dit hotel één van mijn favorieten en verleidt het me telkens hier terug te komen. Zowel de kamers, restaurants, accomodaties, service in het hotel zijn voor mij van hoogstaande kwaliteit. ,Ook biedt het hotel een gratis ondergrondse parking. Er is ook a la carte restaurant met schitterende gerechten op de kaart en prima service. Het hotel heeft dan wel geen zicht op zee, toch vind ik de ligging prima op wandelafstand van het pittoreske puerto de mogan. Echt een aanrader voor wie van kwaliteit houdt. Ik denk hier zeker nog eens een vierde keer terug te keren in komende jaren.

Hadde en lyst å "trimme" litt før frokost så var det en fin gå/jogge tur opp i fjellet. Flott utsikt utover Pourto Mogan. Trim turen tok ca 1time i "passe" tempo.

Our first trip to the Cordial Mogan Playa and to Gran Canaria. We were very impressed with the hotel, both with its design and with its cleanliness and efficiency. In fact it's really almost like a small village with beautiful sub-tropical gardens and courtyards and immaculate pools. Although our room was north-facing we had the enjoyment of waking each day to the sun striking the top of the mountains up the valley. The room was very comfortable and well equipped (although we did take our own travel kettle and cups). The food is excellent and there's a huge variety to choose from although the buffet-style main restaurant can be a bit overwhelming at busy times. I can recommend the spa which we thought was reasonably priced and very peaceful. All the staff at the hotel are very friendly and courteous and seem to take the company policy of being kind to heart. Altogether a brilliant hotel and well placed for the harbour and town. Don't miss a minibus trip into the mountains to get a feel of the other Gran Canaria away from the coastal tourist resorts.

Food is of a very high quality as are all the facilities in the hotel. Just a short walk is the lovely harbour with some lovely shops to browse. If you are up for an early morning jog or walk round the harbour you may see the fisherman bringing in the daily catch. Can't rate this hotel and staff highly enough really would recommend it to anyone.

My husband picked out this hotel as we stayed in Amadores last year & visited Mogan a couple of times & as we were not going all exclusive, we wanted to be in a place with restaurants & some shops. We had a very relaxing week & enjoyed all the hotel has to offer. The Cordial is in an ideal location in Mogan, about 10 mins walk to the harbour and you can walk through the gardens if you want to & come out on a street and you are half way there. Our room was a double & had a nice balcony with a really nice bathroom, very spacious incorporating the toilet with a door in the bathroom. The sun hits the hotel about 11am and our balcony then had the sun till about 6pm which we enjoyed. The layout of the hotel, pools etc is good and easy to get around, very clean everywhere & we still saw the cleaning ladies at 11pm at night in the main hotel. The variety of food was very good & catered for everyone.Everything you could think of was available at breakfast as you would expect & the evening buffet. We ate in the pool bar some lunchtimes which was fine but also ate in Mogan which we preferred as lot more choice & lovely to eat overlooking the beach. Hotel has not bad entertainment every night & we really enjoyed the Country Legends act in the downstairs bar which is a good size & you don't have to fight for a table. The bar & surrounding sitting areas in reception are very comfortable & even sitting outside the entrance in the evening was nice. There is a shopping centre opposite the hotel which has the shops you need & incorporates a big supermarket with lovely bread & cakes.The port of Mogan is very quiet at night at this time of year after 9pm, but it is still nice to go for a walk down there after dinner & look around the pretty buildings with all the flowers. There is a very good market every Friday till about 2pm in the streets surrounding Mogan & on to harbour so worth checking out.All in all had a very relaxing week in a lovely place & will definitely be going back next year. You won't see many cats in Mogan as they have a system in place to control numbers & being cat lovers we were really pleased to see that first time ever there were designated places around the hotel where the cats have food & water trays. They won't bother you & just have a very nice life sleeping amongst the gardens & rocks.

We just returned from two weeks in late January having read the good reviews on Trip advisor. We agree with much of what has been written about all of the excellent aspects of the hotel. It may help to put a different perspective on some who had concerns in some areas. WiFi was without doubt the best we have ever experienced and quicker than our optical WIFI at home. So in every Hotel location we had instant Free WiFi which was superb. We did not find any rigidity with the meal times, if you go in at the beginning of your sitting its clearly quieter than at the end of the sitting but after a day or so you get used to it and we met some great guests on nearby tables. We strongly recommend reading the Becordial magazine in your room its give much of the information you will need. We also recommend going on the Hotel behind the scenes Tour. It was being run for an hour or so on Fridays when we were there. Then you will understand the incredible work that went into the design and management of the hotel. Underneath much of the Hotel are the Heating, Water, Pool, Laundry and interconnecting passageways which enable clean sheets and towels to be brought to your area via staff access to your block without corridors being blocked by trolleys which is a familiar sight at most hotels. And below you will see all is spotlessly clean with a pride in the work they do. Staff are clearly well trained and selected. The place is just brilliant. We have never met so many people who have returned time and time again to this hotel. As friends John and Joyce said. Once you have found perfection, whats the point of looking elsewhere. We hired a car for the two weeks. Secure underground parking was brilliant and always plenty of space despite the hotel being full. Although some guests wanted South facing rooms, in reality most agreed they spend very little time sitting on their balconies. The general guidance on Trip advisor is good advice. We hired a kettle and took a small travel iron. The hotel does not promote some events as much as we would have liked. Like the Hotel Tour or the Astrology presentation. So best use the giant iPad in reception or ask one of the receptionists. Apparently one of the reasons you do not get pestered by street merchants like some other towns, is that the town has its own private security. As a consequence you always feel relaxed and safe walking around the Town at night and its great fun trying out the huge variety of places to eat.

2 Wochen in der richtigen Lage (nahe der Kapelle), Zimmer und Service ausgezeichnet, Gestaltung wie ein botanischer Garten, Abends Außenbeleuchtung von Berghang und Gebäudeteilen wie in der Antike, 13 Sonnentage und 1 Gewittertag, das machten diesen Aufenthalt zu einem echten Erlebnis, das in Begeisterung für den Ort Porto Mogan und das Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa mündet. Die Servicemitarbeiter an der Rezeption, für das Zimmer und im speziellen Haus für das Frühstück waren sehr engagiert und freundlich. Wir möchten hier insbesondere den Publik Relation Manager Christian hervorheben. Beim Abendessen im großen Speisesaal war es natürlich manchmal etwas hektisch. Die Auswahl der Speisen war sehr umfangreich, insbesondere frisch gegrillter Fisch und leckere Süßspeisen waren eine große Versuchung. Wir empfehlen hier, Halbpension Plus, d.h. incl. inländische Getränke beim Dinner zu buchen. Wir haben bewusst keine Vollpension gebucht. Der wunderbare kleine ehemalige "Fischerort" ist ja so schön gestaltet, dass wir jeden Nachmittag zum Sonnenuntergang an den kleinen Sandstrand, mit kleinen Bars und Restaurants gegangen sind. Dort konnten wir 2 bis 3 Stunden das besondere Ambiente des Sonnenuntergangs, an manchen Tagen mit Gitarren-Musik der 60er, 70er und 80er Jahre eines Straßenmusikanten, vor der Kulisse des Puerto, der Palmen und der Masten von Segelschiffen genießen.

This is a very nice hotel. The 4 star rating is somewhat misleading, this hotel is better than some 5 star hotels we have visited. Normally we are not very fond of the type of hotels that try to look like a Spanish village, but at this hotel it works, and it works very well. For example, there is no real garden here, and yet it is, and a very nice one to. The whole walk through the hotel down to the port is one long beautful gardenwalk. It is probobly the most priceworthy hotel we have ever visited. If you are going to live on a good 5 star hotel, you will have to pay apprimately 50-75% more. If every 4 star hotel was like Cordial Mogan Playa, we would shift from 5 star to 4 star. (Perhaps with one exeption, when we are in Puerto de la Cruz, our favorite place, we will always stay at the Botanico.) We have been here twice, and we will return. Jan K

This was our second stay within 2 years at this excellent hotel which just gets better. Certainly the best hotel in this resort, the 230 staff individually make you feel welcome, right from the Reception check-in to the check-out, where the front desk even offered to go through all the many tiny Euro coins we'd accumulated and changed them into more manageable denominations! The Cordial Mogan Playa provides a quiet location securely walled in a mature garden setting, indeed we spent an afternoon just photographing and enjoying the exotic display of plants, all individually named. The half-board deal is an excellent value for money package - we opted for buffet style breakfast and dinner with an impressive choice of freshly prepared help- yourself dishes, freshly cooked fish and meats for dinner plus a plethora of fresh fruits and puddings. For those who want a more intimate dining setting with discreet yet attentive service there's an in-house gourmet restaurant, Los Guayres, which is also excellent. Parking is easy under the hotel or nearby and now the motorway extension has opened, the airport transfer of 51 kms (30 miles) was even quicker this time. We will certainly return.

We´ve been to Cordial Playa for the second time now and it´s a very nice hotel with a fantastic breakfast and the dinnerbuffet is outstanding. Hotelservice is the best and Puerto Mogan is a beautiful place to visit.

Based on previous wonderful experience of Cordial Mogan Playa we did not need to think twice about a return visit and were not disappointed. Once again we found a happy staff who seem dedicated to doing anything within their means to ensure you have the best time possible. Nothing is too much trouble. I would, and have, recommended this hotel to anyone looking for this type of holiday.

My wife and I and our 2 year old daughter have just returned from a week long stay at the fantastic Cordial Mogan hotel. We booked half board and booked a room beside the Spa (you can hear the spa music on the ground & first floor which is really relaxing). We cannot fault the hotel at all, the room, food, staff, atmosphere, entertainment and location was excellent. The breakfast and dinner buffets are brilliant with a great selection of food to suit all tastes. We did venture down to the port two nights for a change, Cafe de Mogan and Dennehy's Tavern are both good places to eat. The photographer service provided by the hotel is also good especially for families. We would recommend you book a table in advance at the fine dining restaurant in the hotel, we left it to the last night to eat there but it had been booked out.To conclude we will definitley be back and we cannot recommend the hotel highly enough. The entertainment in the hotel is also excellent with a kids disco each night and adult entertainment afterwards. The staff are very helpful and great with kids. The pool area's are great

We enjoyed a fantastic four week break at this hotel, celebrating a very special birthday, Christmas and New Year. The hotel staff did everything possible to make our holiday special. Thanks to the generosity of the management, champagne flowed for all of the celebrations. The buffets for breakfast and for the evening meal were amazing. There was everything one could wish for - something to suit everyone. On Christmas Day and New Year's Eve the chefs surpassed themselves. We were allocated a spacious room overlooking the pool, with fridge and a balcony. We loved Puerto de Mogan - it is a very pretty village with a sandy beach and a fascinating harbour. There are lots of shops, bars and restaurants plus a vibrant market each Friday. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and wholeheartedly recommend this hotel.

Wir waren jetzt zum siebten Mal drei Wochen in diesem Hotel und hoffen, dass wir bald wieder zurückkehren können. Es ist ein Platz wo man sich wirklich wohl fühlen kann. Alles ist harmonisch,stilvoll und grosszügig angelegt, der Garten ist ein subtropischer Traum. Wenn man bei strömendem Regen, was sehr selten vorkommt, unter dem Blatt einer Fächerpalme steht, ohne nass zu werden, glaubt man, im Urwald zu sein. Alles ist sehr sauber und gepflegt und das Angebot an sportlicher Betätigung ist sehr gross. Das Frühstücksbuffé ist ausgezeichnet und sehr grosszügig, was für uns jedes Mal Gewichtszunahme bedeutet. Das a la carte Restaurant Guayres sollte man auch absolut besuchen, wirklich kulinarisch und sehr gepflegt. Zum Glück kann man den gastronomischen Versuchungen mit viel Bewegung einen Ausgleich geben. Absolut empfehlens wert ist es, sich den Sonnenuntergang oben vom Leuchtturm über dem Ort anzusehen. Im Winter um 18:15 und im Sommer um 21:15. Im Sommer geht sie direkt hinter dem Teide auf Teneriffa unter und im Winter versinkt sie im Meer. Das Hotelpersonal ist einzigartig. Es ist mir ein Rätsel, wie sie es schaffen, allen so persönlich, freundlich und herzlich entgegenzutreten bei dieser enormen Menge von Gästen. Bei Gesprächen mit anderen Gästen haben wir verstanden, dass viele immer wieder zurückkommen, sodass man vielleicht frühzeitig buchen sollte.

Before I go on to talk about the Hotel, I would like to offer a big thank you to the staff who were exceptional. As soon as we arrived we received a wonderful and friendly welcome from one of the reception staff along with a refreshing glass of cava. We were given free pool towels which could be refreshed each day by the pool as well as a kettle for tea making facilities in your room (10 euro refundable at the end of your stay). The safe is also free of charge located in each room. The rooms had wonderful bathrooms with a bath,overhead shower, complimentary shower gel, soap, sewing kit, comb etc. The corridors around our room were reminiscent of a Moroccan riad along with waterfalls and exotic plants, quite beautiful. There is a porter to take your cases straight to your room so no worry about getting lost on your first day. If you like a really comfy sleep ask for a free mattress topper and extra pillow at no extra cost. There are no mosquitos here so you can also leave your patio door open for that extra breeze. The reception is a beautiful area to relax before your evening meal, where there is gentle entertainment including a pianist and singers. New Year's Eve had a carnival of dancers and salsa music to welcome the New Year in along with a huge firework display. There is entertainment each night, but we never managed to get to see it as we ate quite late and were happy chatting with friends in the piano bar. The dining area is large and has an area where we ate breakfast each morning which was surrounded by exotic trees, plants, orchids and waterfalls (as this part of the dining room is cooler remember a cardigan) The main dining room was spacious and well laid out in order that there were no queues. Plenty of variety, meat, fish, vegetarian something for all. The gardens to this hotel are exotic and very well kept. There is also a small area with canaries which is quite beautiful. Even though this hotel is large we were never stuck for a place to sit on an evening, whether this be for the entertainment or for a quite drink. The marina and area around the beach front has many wonderful places to eat and drink and we often walked around to the Faro lighthouse restaurant for an afternoon drink and tapas where the wonderful staff made us really welcome. The views from here are also excellent. If you are feeling energetic ensure you take a hike up the local hillside for great views of the marina and hotel. There are two walks one a shorter walk to the cross another longer walk around 11 miles through banana and marrow plantations, with soaring eagles and other birds of prey. This ends in a small volcanic beach. Make sure you take water with you as it gets quite hot. There is a small gym, cycle hire and diving/snorkelling facilities on site, and a local gym with further facilities around 3 minutes walk from the hotel by the boules ground. We took a kayak out for a couple of hours from Mogan beach and went along the coast and navigated through caves and passed a few out of the way secluded beaches. This is great fun and worth a try. Make sure you put on your factor 30 to avoid burning. This is one of the quieter resorts and ideal for families and couples wanting a relaxing, safe, no hassle and chic place to stay. The weather has been brilliant. Cool until around 10 am warming up and getting hot by noon until around 5 pm when it starts to cool down again. We will be booking to return for next New Year's Eve and hope to meet many of the friends we met this year, especially Dave and Lynn who were really good company, as once you have been to this hotel you will definitely return............... very best wishes from Chris and Sharon Williams

We came back from a week's holiday in this hotel 2 days ago and already miss it so much! It was perfect for us! Very nice heated pools, beautiful gardens on hotel's grounds, great kids entertainment, really good food - what else could you wish for?! We had Half board and were very pleased with it - always plenty of choice and really nice Xmas dinner! All the staff is extremely pleasant and helpful! Rooms are very clean with lovely views. Little town of puerto de mogan is so beautiful and very short walk away from the hotel. Plenty of restaurants and shops and a calm beach there! We've had a great time! We always stay at 4 star hotels but this one is by far the best one we've been to! Worth 5 stars for sure! We are definitely coming back there!:)

Wir hatten Halbpension.Die Auswahl der Speisen am Morgen sowie am Abend sind qualitativ und quantitativ sehr gut und abwechslungsreich. Das Hotel besticht auch durch seine geschmackvolle Architektur, die gepflegten und weitläufigen Gartenanlagen mit seinen wunderschönen und exotischen Pflanzen sowie die großzügigen und sauberen Poollandschaften. Das Hotel bietet alles was wir uns für einen erholsamen Urlaub wünschen. Wir träumen schon jetzt von unserem nächsten Urlaub im Cordial Mogan Playa.

Eigentlich hätte es fünf Sterne verdient - das Cordial Mogán Playa. Es ist eine Freude, dort zu wohnen, vor allem, wenn man beim Transfer vom Flughafen noch andere Urlauber in den Bettenburgen ab Playa del Ingles abliefert und einem dort das gesammelte Betonelend vorgeführt wird. Am Ende wartet dafür ein echtes Refugium! Hier stimmt einfach alles und in jedem Bereich: die intelligent verschachtelte Architektur der Anlage in subtropischem Garten-Ambiente, die hochwertige Inneneinrichtung und der Service - kaum gesagt, schon gemacht, schneller, freundlicher und effizienter geht es kaum. Nicht zu vergessen der hervorragende Restaurantbereich mit einer selten so gesehenen großen Auswahl hochwertiger Lebensmittel in perfekter Verarbeitung für eine doch recht große Gästezahl. War schon im vorigen Jahr so und ist diesmal fast noch besser. Wir sind Fans geworden und geblieben.

Dette hotellet anbefaler vi på det sterkeste. Hotellet ligger fint plassert i den lille byen som er ren og pen. Slik sett er hele Puerto de Mogan et ypperlig feriested.

Just back from our second stay at this great hotel. Standards are so high it feels like 5*, congratulations to all staff who seem genuinely happy and proud to work there. We stayed half board and exchanged the evening meal (obtain voucher at reception the day before) in the main Hotel for lunch at the 'Tamaragua Restaurant' situated close to the lower swimming pool. Staff at the Restaurant made us feel very welcome each day and really helped to make our stay so special. The grounds of the Hotel are superb with some of the nicest tropical plantings we have encountered, love the cacti garden and again the grounds maintenance staff should be congratulated. We joined as Cordial Members on our previous visit which entitles holders to benefits and reductions. We cannot wait to return to this Hotel and the beautiful resort of Playa de Mogan.

Wow, we have recently returned from another fantastic holiday at the Cordial Mogan Playa. We have been coming on holiday to the Cordial Mogan Playa, twice a year for several years and it never fails to please, surprise and impress. The Management and Staff are so friendly and cannot do enough for you. The hotel, rooms, pools and gardens are kept spotless and clean and the meals and food is delicious and varied with several dining options. The Los Guayres Restaurant is not to be missed and is ideal for that special treat, the meal is excellent and the service adds that special magic to the occasion. The evening entertainment is varied with some very talented acts and something for everyone. The hotel is ideally situated and it is only a short walk to the centre of Porto Mogan with its fine safe for the kids beach, shops and bars and perfect for that afternoon or starlight evening walk. We would like to thank all the Management and Staff once again for making our holiday feel so very special. We are already booking our holidays for next year and cannot wait for our next visit.

Cordial Mogan Playa - exceptional hotel - like an OASIS near the beautiful harbour of Puerto de Mogan. A hotel with handsome gardens and swimming-pools, waterfalls both inside and outside! So immaculatelely clean and delightful room and balcony with view to a beautiful SPA-garden. The staff were wonderful and on my birthday, a birthday cake and a nice letter from the general manager were placed in our room. One year ago, I organized a Dental Conferance, July 2012, at Cordial Mogan Valle, close to Playa. About 50 dentists from Norway enjoyed a fourteen days stay here. Some of the arrangements were placed at Cordial Playa, among them, our banquet. Amazing! My colleagues even taks about it today - never forgets these days in 2012...... And my sweetheart and I decided to stay alone now, at "The Palace Playa", Cordial Playa. And before leaving Mogan, and Cordial Playa, we decided to come back next year and the years following, for celebrating "yearly honeymoon". THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!

The food was very good, the pool and gardens lovely. All the staff, without exception, were friendly and helpful. Loved the location, as Mogan is a very pretty old fishing village and harbour that hasn't been spoilt by too much tourism. Just the place for a relaxing holiday.

A great hotel in a very good location, just 45 minutes from the airport via the new motorway, and a 5 to 10 minute walk to the very pretty harbour of Puerto de Mogan. It is set in magnificent gardens full of many sub-tropical shrubs and flowers. A walk through the gardens leads to a gate giving access to the road to the village. Two heated pools, with ample sun beds and soft cushions, and plenty of umbrellas and/or shady areas if required. Towels could be changed whenever you wanted. We preferred the more 'open' feel of the lower pool, which is also where the aerobics and water polo takes place. The higher pool is generally quieter but is surrounded on 3 sides by the hotel. We stayed on a half board basis, and our table for the evenings was situated in the lovely small area off the main restaurant, next to the waterfalls and beautiful plants. Wine was brought to the table with an ice bucket. The variety of food on offer was incredible. We tended to opt for the fish and meat cooked to order (salmon, tuna, sole, prawns, steak, chicken etc) but there was a wide range of other mains. Then salads, vegetables, soups, desserts, cheese, fresh fruits etc. For breakfast you sat wherever you want (we liked the conservatory) and again the choice of food on offer was enormous. And you could even have a glass of Cava! The entertainment was good and there were one or two live bands during our stay. There is a weekly tour of the hotel, not just the public areas but also 'behind the scenes' underground - including the kitchens. A very interesting tour which I would highly recommend. The water aerobics was great fun, and a special mention to Sarah. Our room was spacious and the balcony got the evening sun. The fridge was large enough to take bottles of water/wine/beer etc and there is a large supermarket across the road. There is a room safe but they charge for this (?). Staff on the whole go out of their way to make your stay an enjoyable one. We ate out most lunchtimes at some of the many restaurants down at the port, but had a couple of nice meals at the hotel restaurant by the pool. There are quite a few tours and places to visit on the island but we just opted for the ferry down the coast, which was enjoyable. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and hope to be back soon.

We have been to this hotel for the third time in September - We are going back in May next year and will probably return every year after that. Rooms - Try the Junior Suite, a nice treat :-) Facilities - Something for everyone, you should never be bored Staff - They truly make Hotel the place it is. Always polite and helpful and they make your feel so special, from Managers to Cleaners - you are special to them no matter who you are. Food - You should never be worried about what to eat as the variety is amazing - even if you are watching the pounds Location - With a short walk down to the fishing village and a supermarket directly opposite the Hotel , you will never be lost for that emergency thing that you need.

This was our first trip to this Hotel & my partner & I arrived in the early hours of the morning due to a 3 hour delay to our flight & a very long transfer neither of which were any fault of the Hotel but just one of those annoying things! We were both shattered & grouchy but both perked up on entering the Hotel as we were greeted by the wonderful lady on reception,Monika I think , with a big smile, a glass of Cava & a little picnic bag for if we were peckish ! We were shown to our lovely room which was spacious, clean & tidy & had everything required for our ten day holiday.The Hotel grounds & two swimming pools were magnificent & very well looked after & all of the Hotel buildings & many different areas,walkways, entertainment venues & bars were great. We could tell that all of the staff who work at this hotel took pride in their job & every single member of staff we interacted with always had a friendly smile & helpful demeanour. We stopped on a half board basis & found both the Breakfast & Evening Meal to be superb. The food was plentiful ,well presented & very well cooked , their was something for everyone's taste. Sun loungers were plentiful & comfortable & the poolside drink service was an added bonus if I was feeling particularly lazy. We had an evening flight so we used the rooms/ showers provided for departing guests to get ready for our trip home & found these more than sufficient , clean & tidy & saved us the expense of paying for a late checkout from our room. We walked down to the town, Peurto de Mogan ,most days & evenings & found plenty to explore & we also had a couple of trips out & about using the local bus services some of which proved quite long journeys but never the less were a good & reasonably priced way to explore the islands other resorts & towns. Both my partner & I would 100% love to come back to this Hotel again & would thoroughly recommend it to anyone wanting a lovely relaxing break away from it all. Thank you to all of the management & staff for making our Holiday just what we needed.

just returned 1 week before half term but still plenty of children ,quite suprised there was so many as quite an expensive hotel. no problem with sunbeds upper pool is in the shade till around 11, lower one gets sun much earlier, so you can get beds anytime. upkeep of pools and surrounding area spot on ,the grit not nice but no slipping here.got a high floor sunny balcony as requested, check in was conducted quickly and efficiently with a glass of bubbly most welcome,even shown to room by receptionist,staff very helpful at all times. picked second sitting for dinner and got a nice table in conservatory out of all the tooing and frowing. once you get used to where everything is its not a problem to find what you want to eat , the choice is vast and quality very good you will not go hungry here believe me. rooms good with a couple of uk stations ,mini bar left empty to put your own drinks in, upkeep spot on. puerto mogan is a lovely small resort, harbour area really nice, able to swap dinner for lunch one day and restaurant was a nice change,prices of drinks in resort not bad still able to get a pint for 2 eu . good beach with beds & brolly 9 eu. the resort has coped well with the downturn nothing shut down and felt upmarket compared to most canaries resorts. we will definately return to cordial mogan again and would reccomend to all.

Our second stay at this hotel was just as great - if not greater - than our first! Thanks again to the wonderful staff. In particular (in alphabetical order) I would like to mention Ana-Maria (cleaning staff), Christian (public relations manager), Juan (chef), and Juana, Lazaro, Lili, Marie-Sussi, Melchor and Tania (serving staff). But the staff are not the only special factor in this magical equation. The accommodation, gardens, facilities and food are all consistently first-rate. I have stayed in several 5-star and good 4-star hotels and cannot understand the criticisms of the food and dining arrangements at the Cordial Mogan Playa, but everyone is entitled to their opinion. Suffice to say, we shall be returning early in 2014!

Just back from a week in the Cordial Mogan Playa booked through Jet2Holidays. The hotel didn't disappoint. We had requested 3 twin rooms, and were pleasantly surprised to find that we had been allocated 3 adjoining rooms with a garden view. This turned out to be overlooking the garden area of the spa. The hotel complex is very impressive, in particularly the gardens with mature plants (for a hotel that is only around 10 years old) that are well labelled for those who are interested. Our welcome at around 11pm on a Saturday evening was very warm and helpful, and despite having missed dinner there was a basic but adequate buffer available for us to enjoy. The pool facilities are really good, with plenty of loungers and good waiter service from the bar. We were on half-board plus (the plus including drinks) and were satisfied with the range of food on offer. The quality was a little variable, but overall it was difficult to find fault. Given the range of restaurants and pretty harbour only a short walk away in Mogan, I would recommend sticking to B&B and eating out. The hotel were happy to allow us to swap dinner for lunch to allow us a bit more variety. Also worth noting that they provide a courtesy room for those guests whose airport pick-up in late in the day. The courtesy room is a purpose built facility, with 4 separate bed-rooms and male and female showers which was perfect for freshening up after our last day relaxing by the pool.

Have just got back from family holiday at this hotel. Have nothing but positive things to say. The layout of the hotel with the trees and plants is very pretty. The food was lovely, lots of choice and different things each night. The staff at the hotel could not have been better, the maid came in twice a day, once to clean and at 7 to turn down the beds. The pool was heated and there were always enough sunbeds with thick pads to put on. Excellent would go back.

From the time we entered the reception area we were impressed by the exceptional attention to detail in this hotel. From the waterfalls inside the building, the live music performance in the reception area, the beautiful tiled panel on the stairway to the restaurant,the wonderful range of flowering shrubs and trees both inside the building and throughout the grounds, the huge variety of food in the restaurant and the standard of furniture in our hotel room. We arrived on 7th October and enjoyed blue skies and temperatures in the high twenties for 12 memorable days. We chose private taxi transfers from airport to hotel. Expensive, but quick and hassle free after a long flight. Next time we visit we will ask for a room well away from the noisy Spa area.We found car hire less expensive in Playa Ingles. Good local bus services to most parts.

Bei diesem Hotel stimmt alles! Erholung pur, wenn man möchte und nicht auf Tour geht zur Erkundung des Ortes und der Insel! Die Anlage ist abwechslungsreich gestaltet und mit 2 großen Pools (entsalzenes Meerwasser!) sowie einem sehr schön angelegten Kakteengarten und einer antiquen Grabungsanlage (zur Besichtigung) versehen, die Zimmer sind sauber und freundlich bis komfortabel eingerichtet, die Lobby und die darin untergebrachte Bar sind anheimelnd und ein schöner Treffpunkt! Der Speiseraum ist sauber und sehr großzügig angelegt, die dar gebotenen Speisen abwechslungsreich und sehr delikat. Wer hier nichts findet, dem kann nicht geholfen werden. Auch das Frühstücksbuffet dürfte jeden Wunsch erfüllen und sollte doch einmal etwas fehlen: das Personal ist sowohl im Speiseraum wie auch in der gesamten Anlage sehr zuvorkommend, hilfsbereit, freundlich und schnell; auch, falls mal wider Erwarten Reparaturen nötig sein sollten, was nie vorgekommen ist bei unseren 3 - bisherigen - Aufenthalten. Das wissen wir nur von einem anderen Gast! Schade ist nur eines - aber vielleicht auch gut: vom Flughafen aus gesehen liegen Ort und Hotel am anderen Ende der Insel (Südwesten). Fakt ist: Wir werden den Weg weiterhin gerne zurück legen, da wir wissen, was uns tolles erwartet! Ein jeweils schöner Urlaub und sei er noch so kurz!

This is our fourth visit to this hotel and once again we were not disappointed. The hotel is spotless, both inside and out by the pool areas. The staff are courteous, the food extremely varied, entertainment good. I'm not sure if I had young children I would go to this hotel but for couples it is fantastic, so very relaxing. There are two pools, one which caters for those who are looking for games, exercise etc. and the other for ones like us, who just want to chill and read our books! We had two weeks here and didn't want it to end.

Just back from week in the sun. From the moment we arrived until we left the staff were polite and courteous. Our room overlooked the pool and was well situated for the last rays of the sun. Beds very comfortable. The hotel grounds well kept and a delight to walk through. Food also excellent. Went on a couple of excursions which we thoroughly enjoyed - jeep safari and dolphin watching.

My wife and I would like to thank all the staff at the Hotel Cordial Mogán Playa for there hard work in ensuring we had an enjoyable stay. The hotel is very impressive, all the amenities were 1st class from the fabulous reception area to the comfortable accommodation, beautiful grounds & lovely clean swimming pools to name a few. We found our stay very relaxing and came home looking forward to our return next year. Could I just mention the restaurant, the staff were very friendly and professional and the food choice fantastic (but don't take my word for it). We will return and look forward to seeing you all soon.

We have just returned from our first visit to Cordial Mogan Playa Hotel and will definitely be going again. The Hotel is situated in wonderful gardens with two large swimming pools. The food was fantastic so much choice and high quality, the restaurant setting was delightful. Our room was very spacious , as was the bathroom , well equipped and spotlessly clean. We found all the staff very attentative and everyone made you feel welcome. There is a lovely walk through the stunning gardens to the small town and fishing harbour. This is a fabulous hotel to stay for a real rest to unwind and relax.

Just returned from 1 week stay in this hotel & really can't think of anything negative about it. The staff are first rate - obviously really well taught & thoroughly enjoy their work - they are a credit to the Company. The rooms are immaculately clean & well decorated & serviced twice daily by helpful staff. The food is excellent in both quality & choice at breakfast, lunch & dinner - if you choose the option. The gardens & pools are well kept too. The amazing diversity of the flora & fauna add to a tremendous experience. I would recommend this Hotel to any-one who wants a relaxing break.

We have just returned from a super relaxing week at the Cordial Mogan Playa. This is a very well operated hotel, who's staff work well as a team and genuinely appear to enjoy making their guests feel very welcome. The gardens are a particular delight and are kept in an immaculate condition this was particularly nice as the surrounding hills and countryside are extremely arid. There are two freeform pools with plenty of sun beds with soft covers. All pool towels are complimentary, large bath sheet size. The pool bar/cafe staff come to you with drinks and snacks when you press a bell on the menu card, again all very friendly. Dinner as other reviewers have mentioned caters for most european tastes, pretty good standard for a buffet, you keep your table for the whole week, and can swap between the two sittings if you ask 6:00 or 8:30pm. It is probably the largest dining hall I have eaten in and it is not a calming place, great if you like to people watch though!! The hotel is well situated in Puerto de Mogan being only a 5-10 minute walk away to the pretty marina and harbour which is lined with restaurants. It has an upmarket feel about it. This is a very quiet place so you will not find night clubs and loud bars here.There is a market on a Friday by the harbour, leather goods, tablecloths etc. The Sahara imported beach is quite small, we like to snorkel and this was only really possible near the breakwater. We used the water taxi ferry "salmon" to explore other resorts along the coast, Puerto de Mogan was the nicest by a long way. We hired a car for a few days and pretty much did the whole island during this time, the highlights for us were the walks up to Roque Noblo, where we could clearly see the volcano, Mt. Tide on Tenerife, and Roque Bentayga, this mountainous area reminded us very much of parts of western USA. The village of Tejeda was worth a look too. Some of the mountain roads are extremely twisty lots of hair pin bends, in particular the road that goes from Mogan to Agaete in the north. The views from Mirador de Balcon are spectacular. We do not usually take package holidays, but we were in need of a quick fix after a stressful year, Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa certainly was the perfect place to do just that

We've stayed at the Cordial Mogan Playa many times over the last seven years and it really is a very special hotel! From the moment you enter the reception area and are greeted by the smiling and very helpful receptionists with open arms (literally if you have stayed there as many times as we have!), as you walk through the very beautiful gardens, as you enter the restaurants (again, being greeted with open arms!), you realise just how special the Cordial is to us. The design of the hotel is quite exceptional and different from most of the concrete monstrosities that litter the Spanish resorts The food is excellent and very varied - have a meal in their Los Guayres restaurant Evening entertainment is not as good as it should be The swimming pools (2) are kept beautifully (very slightly saline and isotonic, so the water does not hurt your eyes). Sun loungers are comfortable and are plentiful An organised tour of the hotel (every Friday) opens your eyes to all the activities that go on behind the scenes The route from the airport has now been greatly improved with the motorway passing through a number of new tunnels, which reduces the journey time to about 35 minutes - previously the journey took much longer, winding all around the coast road - very dramatic views but much longer The hotel is a short stroll from the beach and very attractive harbour area. There are two supermarkets within a short walk from the hotel and a good weekly market in the harbour area every Friday

My Husband and I stayed at the Cordial Mogan Playa from the 5th to the 12th October and had a wonderful holiday, the setting was fantastic and even though the hotel was vast it never seemed crowded. The Gardens were a delight with many areas to explore. The pools were excellent with very attentive staff who would bring your drinks from the bar for you to enjoy on your sun lounger, of which there were always plenty. No need to get up at the crack of dawn to reserve your sunbed. The Food was fabulous with so much variety of fresh meat, fish and all manner of delicious vegetables, salads and accompaniments. I would highly recommend the crepes for desert and the fresh fruit was amazing. The entertainment program for adults started at about 9.30 and finished about midnight which for us was fine, this is not a hotel for late night discos and the resort in general is more suitable for families with children or older couples. I would highly recommend the accommodation the beds were very comfortable and the rooms were quite well sized with TV and DVD player, which can be obtained in the reception. Only down side was that they was no iron or ironing board available, only way was to send your items for pressing by the hotel which was a bit pricey! Men need to wear long trousers for dinner which in 28 C heat was a bit uncomfortable, smart shorts should maybe be considered in the dining room. Finally the hotel staff were second to none, I have never been treated so well in any hotel in my life, i have stayed in 5 star hotels and didnt get this level of service. Well done to the Management and staff of the Cordial Mogan and keep it up! its what sets you apart and will continue to bring people back to you year after year.

My wife and I visited the above Hotel for the 5th time at the beginning of September 2013 and again had an excellent time. The staff are all so friendly helpful and polite. If you want a peaceful holiday that's the place to go. The hotel is enclosed by a wall all around, two swimming pools, excellent food and entertainment. It is also ideal for disable people in wheel chairs where ever there are steps a slope is always near by and good size lifts. looking forward to going again next year.

Stayed here for a week at the beginning of Oct with my Husband and a friend and her husband,we had an amazing holiday, the whole hotel and grounds are very beautiful, The food was so good we did not eat out once which is very unusual for us ,great selection at breakfast and dinner, lovely area to eat which is kind of like a huge three story conservatory in a rain forest at night they light candles and it is magical,great service,staff very attentive, we would like to mention Cheryl on reception who was lovely and very helpful. The bedrooms are also lovely with a fridge so you can have cold drinks to hand,across from the Hotel is a shopping centre with a few very nice shops,lovely bags and purses at a very reasonable price.also opposite the Hotel is a very friendly bar just go down to the lower floor of the shopping centre and the bar is in the open and serves brilliant sangria. My friend and I used the spa one day as our Husbands went to play golf,this is the nicest spa I have ever been in, lovely outside area to relax with really nice daybeds a hydrotherapy pool,steam room, sauna and a salt water flotation pool.it costs eighteen Euro for four hours not including any treatments but well worth the money,fresh juice,fruit and water to help yourself to loved it. The resort of Mogan itself is gorgeous a beautiful beach and harbour, the boats leave from here every hour to various resorts along the coast we went on the boat to Peurto Rico and the coast line is stunning, thirty minutes each way for ten euro great value for money,the market on a Friday is huge and worth a look,but we found the shops were cheaper than the market, to sum up this is a beautiful Hotel in a stunning location we are booking for next year, cant wait.

We have just returned (8th October 2013) from another wonderful week at this amazing Hotel. This is the fourth of our visits and stays here and it really is consistently very good. Where to start...... it has to start with the professional and very friendly staff. Nothing is too much trouble for them and every member of staff is friendly and helpful. Every area of the hotel is very clean and the maids work hard to keep the rooms nice. The Tapas restaurant is excellent and good value for money (but not included in your Full Board +) but worth the visit and we had the treat of dining at the Los Guayros Restaurant during out stay which can only be described as divine!! The food, service and ambience is really worth the treat. At the hotel restaurants the food is amazing and the variety is huge, but this does not compromise on quality in any way. We always stay Full Board Plus and find that the house wines are really very good. Sarah the exercise trainer who does the classes is a dedicated and friendly member of the team who does some really fun classes (aqua particularly) if you want it. What else can I say? Other than we will be returning for our fifth visit in either December or March...... Cant wait!!

We stayed at the Cordial Mogan Playa for two weeks in September. It is a wonderful hotel with an exceptionally attentive staff and management. We have stayed in many 4 star hotels over the years but quite truthfully this hotel surpasses them all! The rooms are excellent, the hotel grounds are magnificent, great entertainment and fantastic food and service! No problems at all during our holiday. We have already booked to return again next September. Well done to all the staff and management! See you next year!

This was our first visit to this hotel and upon arrival (late evening), we thought "Oh Dear! Is this going to be too big and impersonal?" However, once we'd found our way around the very impressive grounds, pool areas and other public areas and encountered the friendly and very efficient service of the staff, we realized, despite it's size, we felt happy and comfortable there. The large bedroom was very clean and comfortable which included a refrigerator (most useful) and in the bathroom there was an excellent shower over the bath and a good hairdryer, which was easy to use (unlike other we have encountered). Our balcony overlooked the Wellness Centre, a quiet and relaxing area. The breakfasts were excellent and the buffet dinner reasonable, bearing in mind it's difficult to cater for such large numbers, with varying tastes, but overall there was a good selection. Once a week the hotel invites guests to take a tour of the hotel to see not only the public areas, but also the underground working areas, which includes the carpenters workroom, the large laundry, the kitchens etc.etc. and even under the one swimming pool. We have never known any other hotel to offer this experience. Cleanliness of all areas of the hotel is really evident. If you want a quiet relaxing holiday in a pretty resort we would recommend Cordial Mogan Playa

We had a great time at the Cordial Morgan Playa and returned to the UK grinning from ear to ear. The staff and even our fellow guests made the whole trip unforgettable. We sat lazily by the pool, soaking up the sun, and swimming two or three times a day. The hotel is amazing, and the staff are incredibly friendly and professional. There is a lot of food to choose from at the buffet, but for a change we swapped supper for lunch on a few days and ate in the nearby port. The bars in the port are very friendly and not too pricey. We will be back!

Just back from our first visit to this hotel. Speedy taxi journey (35 mins) fom airport to hotel. On arrival check-in very good, staff very friendly and given glass of Cava. Our room was lovely, on the fifth floor overlooking large beautiful pool. The grounds of the hotel are large and immaculate. So many trees, plants and waterfalls. I can only reiterate the positive reviews of others - the staff here are exceptional, nothing too much trouble and very friendly. Others have commented on the dining room in the evening being a bit chaotic. We only found this on one evening when a lot of new arrivals came in at the same time. Yes there are two sittings for dinner - when we were there the later sitting had changed times. It used to be 9 - 10.30 but changed to 8.30 to 10.30 and this suited us. We couldn't fault the choice of food at breakfast and dinner, plenty of choice. We particularly liked the fresh fruit at breakfast - sliced oranges, sliced melon, sliced pineapple, plums, pears, etc. All in all we had a lovely holiday and we would return to Cordial Mogan Playa Hotel. All in all we had a lovely holiday weather hot and sunny

We stayed here 23rd September - 8th October, we booked half board. What a great place, fantastic apartment with lots of room, it was very well equipped and comfortable. It also had a large balcony with a couple of sun loungers, a table and four chairs and a shower. The good news didn't stop there, we had free wifi should we need it and the apartment was also well insulated as we had very little noise from the apartments above. The quality of the food was good and the scrambled eggs were the best I've tasted whilst on holiday, there was something for everyone and it was always hot. Dinners were varied and generally good. Lovely grounds around the complex and the pools were lovely and clean. All the staff were friendly and polite, especially helpful in the dining room where I used my mobility scooter to get about always making sure that I had somewhere to park it. We went out for dinner on my husbands birthday and chose to eat in La Factoria in the village, we would both recommend a meal here, we had a seafood starter, which was good followed by swordfish steaks which were recommended by the owner, they were amazing but a little large for us. Mogan is a pretty little village with a nice harbour, it is probably too quiet for teenagers or those wanting to party. We shall certainly be going back there.

My husband and I stayed for two weeks from 13th September half board and had a lovely time. The hotel was beautiful I loved the gardens and the pools, the staff worked tirelessly to keep everything looking immaculate and were always smiling and friendly and ready to help. We normally go on a touring holiday but fancied a restful holiday for a change and it was certainly that. The food was lovely and very varied and my husband who is quite a fussy eater never had any problem finding something to eat and it was all of such a high standard. The rooms were exactly as shown in the brochure which makes a nice change. The only thing I would maybe change is the entertainment, most people were there for two weeks and the same entertainment was repeated the second week on most nights which got a bit boring but apart from that I would certainly recommend it and will be back.

Esperamos que te ayude a planificar tu viaje.Mostrar traducciones automáticas Sí No stayed for 2 weeks from 23 september - 8 october. on half board. This was the best holiday we have had. If you want relaxation this is the place for you. Descriptions in brochures are very adequate. Hotel offers everything. Beautiful grounds with excuisite plants covering very large areas, 2 lovely swimming pools and i childrens.. lots of sunbeds-no need to reserve and thick mattresses supplied also towels free , can change daily. Pool staff are so helpful. 1 umbrella for 2 chairs and a stool.bar and food at poolside is very good. lovely toasties. Bedrooms are large and kept immaculate with nice balconies and flat screen tv in rooms.we had room on block 2 and 4th floor facing pool 1, absolutley gorgeous and had sun until 7.3o from early afternoon.WE had 2nd sitting in dining room at 8.30. WE found it very relaxing and no rush. Once you get the unusual lay out of the dining room it is easy to navigate.Can sit outside amongst the plants and waterfalls, amazing. no smoking which is great. Food was more than enough. there was enormous variety. piping hot plates and all vegetables hot and nicely displayed. could not fault it. Spoilt for choice. Big thank you to Carmello in dining room. He is genuinly concerned that everybody is happy and does not leave with a complaint. He is always smiling. Hand sanitiser outside dining room is getting painted as it blends in with walls and customers are missing it. Reception staff are also very helpful and polite.all areas outside are immaculate.The resort is as advertised... quiet after 11pm when all music outside stops, but can drink until later. Hotel has professional shows 2/3 times per week and of course the animation team perform. We enjoyed most of the shows.You do not have to attend as there are other areas where you can sit with bars inside and outside. The resort of Puerto Mogan is idyllic. Friday is market day. do not miss lovely atmosphere and lots of bargains. Beautiful harbour area with lots of bars and shops and the most amazing flowers in the side streets overhanging houses etc.absolutely beautiful. Boat trips from harbour to surrounding areas, and great bus service also from near harbour and terminus. Helpful drivers to give you directions. If you want a noisy, busy resort in evenings this is not the place for you, but we loved it. We wanted an upmarket resort without loud music and found it and will definitely return. Thank you Cordial Mogan Playa

Wow, what can we say? Well done Cordial Mogan Playa - we cannot praise you enough. This hotel is excellent and we cannot understand some of the negative comments....all we can say is that some people must be very, very difficult to please. We have stayed in many hotels in different countries, including Canada and the USA and this hotel has to rate as one of the best hotels we have encountered. The cleanliness was superb, both room and communal areas - even the sun loungers had a thorough clean during our week's stay, which is something we have never encountered before. Our room was very spacious and exceeded our expectations. The gardens were stunning. The staff were very pleasant and hard working. Our breakfast time was certainly not chaotic, as we were fortunate enough to be able to have our breakfast in the smaller restaurant overlooking pool 2. The only problem we had was deciding what to eat as there was sooo much choice. There was plenty of entertainment around the pool area, particularly aqua aerobics which was very well supported by guests. If some of the guests who have complained about Pool 1 being too quiet then they should have moved and found a seat around Pool 2 instead of complaining about having 'more fun in an old folks' home'!!! We too were on the first sitting for our evening meal but we didn't find it chaotic at all - we usually arrived at about 6.45p.m. Yes, there were people milling around wondering what to eat because, again, there is sooo much choice but once we decided what we wanted to eat we didn't have to wait long before we were served and the vegetables were a couple of steps away from the meat. The food was definitely NOT bland as a recent reviewer has said, in fact we would say that there was a superb choice of both hot and cold foods so much so that it reminded us of the choices and quantities you get on a cruise ship. Having stayed in a hotel in Cape Verde last year where there was a similar set up for dining, the Cordial Mogan Playa far, far exceeded the quality and choice of that hotel. If it's lively nightlife you are after then this hotel is not for you. We shall definitely be revisiting this hotel in the future.

I have just returned on 26th Sept from a marvellous week in this great hotel. I have never seen grounds so beautiful in any hotel I have ever stayed at. The staff are second to none and nothing was too much trouble for them. As I like a shaded balcony I was given room 1043 in the building next to reception which was ideal. The amount of choice in the restaurant was more than I have ever come across and as I am very picky this was great for me. I look forward to returning to this hotel sometime in the future. I have no problem at all in recommended this hotel.

We have recently returned from our third trip to this fantastic hotel feeling completely relaxed. We choose this hotel for its beautiful gardens, the friendly staff and the food. We like to wander around the small town and have coffee overlooking the beach or marina. The entertainment on several nights was brilliant so please give it a go. Management were always around and very approachable and it is obvious that the guests' experience is very important to them. Any requests were dealt with very quickly. Thank you to Marcos and Carmello for your help especially when we were a group of two, then four,six ,four again and then just the two of us. We really appreciated this. The rooms are spacious and comfortable.The beds are quite firm but mattress toppers and a pillow menu are available just ask at reception. We will be back.

This is a truly wonderful hotel. We have visited here 3 times and are due to fly out back here this October. The food variety and quality is excellent. All staff are exceptional. Set in an ideal location, not to far away from the beach. Hotel is surrounded by botanical gardens and only 5 mins away from the beach. Worth a visit!

Entras a la recepción y el majestuoso hall te da la bienvenida a uno de los mejores hoteles de Canarias. En el check-in te ofrecen cava o cualquier bebida no alcohólica. Un botones te acompaña a tu habitación y te explica la distribución del hotel según sus restaurantes, piscinas y bloques de habitaciones, además de las actuaciones de la noche. Cuenta con 2 piscinas, una de ellas emulando la orilla de una playa, muy trabajada... Varias terrazas/bar en las piscinas y el restaurante principal, justo debajo del hall, muy bonito. La comida excelente, había buffet de todo tipo de carnes, así como de pescados, todo hecho al momento a petición. Las piscinas de agua salobre, la tranquilidad en el ambiente, y la sensación de jardín botánico en cada rincón del hotel, te invitan a visitarlo de nuevo.

Just returned from our second visit to this hotel and still amazed by the beauty of the hotel and gardens. We woke every morning to waterfalls and the fragrant smell of flowers, its as if this hotel was built in the middle of a botanic garden. The staff are wonderful and always go out of their way to make your stay special. We were half board and the food was amazing with a huge selection of different foods to choose from, the desserts were irresistible. Our room was comfortable with a large balcony and table and chairs for relaxing. The room was cleaned daily and towels and bedding are changed at your request. The hotel has two large pools with ample sun loungers and brollies around the poolside so no need for anyone to rush and put out towels (although some people still did) you are given pool towels on arrival and can change them daily at the pool side so no need to bring heavy towels in your luggage. The pool area and bars were kept spotlessly clean. There was entertainment every night and music at the poolside bar in the evening for outdoor relaxing. I would highly recommend this hotel and will probably return again ourselves sometime as I don't think we could find a better hotel.

I have booked a return visit to this hotel and cant wait. I never normally go back to the same place but definitely wanted to make an exception when it came to this hotel. Last September I was looking for a break from work and did the usual, searched the internet and TripAdvisor ratings to find somewhere that was relaxing, with excellent food and accommodation. Reviews for the hotel said how great it was so deciding to take a punt I booked and I was not disappointed …so where do I start..? Being greeted by welcoming and friendly reception staff and handed a glass of fizz when checking in; smiling porters taking our bags to the room; spacious room that was clean and light with the sea in the distance, was the beginning of a fantastic week. The grounds are beautifully well kept, a cactus garden by the spa area, luscious plants by the rooms and pool areas to provide natural shade and a variety of water features both inside and out, which culminates in a waterfall by the main restaurant. You could pick your table for breakfast but were allocated a table for the week for the evening meal and so onto the food… my mouth is watering already…choices for breakfast and evening meal were wide and varied, freshly cooked omelettes in the morning, fish or meat in the evening and suitable vegetarian options. Dishes were labelled so you knew what you were eating and were regularly replenished across all the areas. I didn’t eat in the A La Carte restaurant that is open to non-residents as the quality and quantity in the main restaurant was more than sufficient (as my expanding waistline over the week demonstrated!). The two pool areas were well maintained with plenty of sun beds and umbrellas and natural shade from the trees and plants if you wanted it, not sure about the shingle as it was a bit uncomfortable to walk on but then I wasn’t doing too much walking! To get the pool towels you had to go to the diving school by the second pool which was the only confusion on the first day but the friendly staff pointed me in the right direction. The entertainment in the evening was varied but was nothing outstanding and a couple of nights in the week there was a singer in the bar outside by the main pool. On Friday’s outside the hotel on the promenade leading down to the beach and the marina area is a local market that has a range of products; bags, shoes, jewellery, paintings etc but is only on in the morning so don’t leave it too late to make a purchase. Across the road from the hotel is a shopping centre which wasn’t full but had some nice shops and a tax free shop for tourists. It is an easy walk down to the local beach which isn’t very big but has some nice bars, restaurants to sit and relax by the sea. Did the hotel live up to the reviews I had read? Yes. Is this the first review I have written? Yes, because the hotel staff and management deserve the recognition for making holiday experiences what they should be…. Pleasurable, for all the right reasons…and I am looking forward to going back to experience it all again!

Just spent two weeks at the Cordial Mogan Playa and we were not disappointed. What a great hotel! There was nothing we did not like, we even found the night time entertainment amusing. The staff were always friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were spotless and tidied everyday. I highly recommend this hotel and hope to return one day.

Ottimo albergo, personale estremamente gentile senza essere invadente, giardino curatissimo con grandissima varietà di piante e una collezione di cactus invidiabile, parti comuni eleganti e curate, piscine ottime e pulite si trova sempre posto, buon ristorante a buffet con grandissima scelta (buffet sparso per tutta la sala un pochino scomodo ma alla fine tutti sono ugualmente distanti), camere pulite forse da rimodernare arredamento, bar con spuntini alle piscine, parcheggio interno gratuito, posizione tranquilla. Per il mio compleanno ho trovato una bottiglia e un dolce al ritorno della spiaggia e a cena nuovamente ... tavola apparecchiata con cura e bottiglia di vino in fresco e tutte le bibite offerte ... che dire? questa è veramente la cura del cliente che da noi spesso manca. Bella spiaggia, paese molto tranquillo, poca gente anche se l'hotel+appartamenti è molto grande, centro commerciale per lo più chiuso e poco movimento la sera (dal 16 al 22 settembre). Lo consiglio a tutti a parte chi cerca espressamente discoteche e movida :-)

We spent 7 nights at the hotel from 16th - 23rd Sept and thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of this great experience. Check-in was very smooth and informative and our 4401 was very well located overlooking the reception and top pool area. The room is a good size with a very nice bathroom. The hotel grounds are vast with amazing gardens scattered everywhere. The plants and shrubs are numerous and very well looked after. The pool area at the top end was nicely set out with padded sun beds to die for, so relaxing! The snack bar area La Fula had exceptionally helpful and efficient bar staff, and they always had a smile on their faces. The food both at breakfast and dinner was exceptionally varied and delicious. There was a very good wine list although a little on the pricey side. All the previous reviews are correct in there reviews as this is a very well run hotel and deserves more than the 4 star category they have been given. The staff are some of the best I have experienced and totally professional and committed to ensure you have a great stay. I will definitely be going back to this hotel as it is one of the best I have stayed in and my business takes me around the world to various locations. If you have booked to go or are thinking about it, just do it and lay back knowing you are going to have a great experience. Well done Cordial Mogan Playa!!

Just returned from a week here and was very pleased with the standard of accommodation. The apartment was spacious, very clean and the balcony was fab especially having sun beds on so each day we could escape the noise of the pool and have the change to bathe in peace. I requested a high floor and pool view and they accommodated me with both. We stayed SC but on arrival there was a slight mix up with our room which caused us no upset but to say sorry they gave us a free meal with drinks. They couldn't do enough for us and all the staff where very helpful especially Christopher on reception. The resort itself very quaint and quiet so great for a rest and plenty of places to eat out. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet holiday in fab accommodation.

This is a fantastic hotel, from the moment we arrived, we were so impressed. After a simple check in we walked through reception into a tropical paradise. Greeted by huge palm trees and water falls. The gardens are truly amazing, there are too many varieties of plants to count. On arrival to our room the wow factor continued, large and well furnished. Nice welcome pack of fruit and wine. There are two large swimming pools and a children's pool, with plenty of sun loungers. Both pools have a bar, and there are further bars inside. The dining room is large, but try and sit in the outside area, where you dine on a suspended floor above, yet more water and more water falls to view while sampling the well prepared food and a good wine selection. You are allocated the same table for the duration of your stay for your evening meal. There was plenty of choice and variation throughout our stay. Breakfast was particularly good, we even had Cava every morning. The hotel is approx five minutes walk to the delightful harbour and beach, with plenty of good bars and restaurants. This is a hotel we will return to.

We stayed at the Cordial Mogan de Playa hotel for eight fantastic nights in September and can't fault the place. From the wonderful staff who are only to happy to help you with any problem, to the beautiful gardens which make it a joy to wander between the various buildings that make up the complex, everything was first rate and I recommend the place wholeheartedly. Our room was on the third floor and we had a lovely view of the pool and towards the sea. The room was large, comfortable and quiet. The two big pools were fine, although I think we were very lucky in that it was quieter at that start of our stay and these pools did get busier towards the end of the stay. Guests are a nice nice of families and slightly older holidaymakers, so younger couples such as ourselves were a bit in the minority. This suited us fine, and I think if you want a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings it is ideal, although if you want more bright lights and night life you might be better off elsewhere. Puerto de Mogan is a lovely little fishing village, with a good variety of restaurants, bars etc., in a gorgeous location around the port-a cross between Venice and Whitby I thought! It is easy to travel along the coast around the island either by hiring a car or using the very good bus service, and the climate is wonderful. Food in the hotel is through the buffet-style restaurant, with an a la carte option being one of the best restaurants in Gran Canaria which is located in the hotel complex (we didn't try this as we found the buffet fine.) Just outside the hotel there is a small shopping centre with a very handy supermarket and it is just a quick stroll down to the port and beach. We didn't go on the beach in Puerto de Mogan itself as it did seem to be quite busy with children and families (it looks very safe and great for little ones) and we wanted a bit of piece and quiet, but I'd recommend travelling around the coast to Maspalamas, where a visit to the slightly surreal sand dunes and the lovely beach is not to be missed. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and are really missing it! Hopefully we'll be back again soon.

We have just returned from 1 weeks stay at this wonderful hotel - it was our 1st visit to Gran Canaria and Puerto Mogan is lovely. After a good flight and private transfer we were met at Reception by friendly staff and a glass of fizz. A porter took our luggage and showed us to our room;on the 4th floor overlooking the top pool. The view was amazing, the room very large with a big bathroom and balcony and had everything we needed. Breakfast in the restaurant was superb with lots of choices and we sat in the atrium every morning. We chose the 2nd sitting for dinner and were given a table in the conservatory area - this sitting seemed quieter and again there were plenty of choices. There is an a la carte restaurant but we didn't try this as the food in the buffet restaurant was very good. Both the pools are large, very clean and there were always plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas free - there are 2 pool bars run by friendly staff. The reception bar was a lovely place to sit and have a drink before dinner and there was an evening disco bar - the only negative being the entertainment, which could be improved. The hotel complex is large and surrounded by fantastic tropical plants and trees, is very clean, has a relaxed atmosphere and is run by friendly and helpful staff. There is a nice walk down to Puerto Mogan from the hotel and here you will find plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be returning in the near future.

Wir waren jetzt zum 4. Mal dort und werden definitiv wieder kommen. Wir sind begeistert von der gesamten Anlage, welche wunderbar angelegt ist und auch gepflegt wird. Das Restaurant hat mindestens 5 Sterne verdient, denn die Vielfalt und Auswahl der Speisen ist bemerkenswert. Das Personal ist durchweg sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Publikum ist für uns ideal in der Mischung (vorwiegend Deutsche, Engländer, Spanier) und auch größtenteils etwas älter was ein sehr ruhiges und erholsames Ambiente am Pool verspricht. Für Familien mit Kindern gibt es einen extra Pool wo auch die Animation stattfindet. Die Zimmer sind gemütlich und bieten alles was man zu einem schönen Aufenthalt benötigt. Wir sind sehr zufrieden und haben hier unser Urlaubsdomizil gefunden.

My husband and I have just returned from a week's stay at this wonderful hotel. We visited in 2009 and enjoyed it very much but think it is even better now. All the staff are so friendly and helpful, going out of their way to give assistance and help the holiday feel. We loved the variety and freshness of the buffet - everything imaginable ... and more! From the delicious cooked to order omelettes at breakfast to the array of fruits and salads, well presented and tasty desserts (especially those pancakes served with liquers) as well as fresh breads, meats, cheeses, and accompaniments! The pools were great - lots of sunbeds and parasols and everywhere so clean. Just not so sure of the purpose of the shingle areas - a bit hard on the feet! The bars and cafes were brilliant - not that we needed more food! All the public areas were well tended and we enjoyed strolling around the gardens - especially the cactus area. Our room was a delight - spacious and so clean with adjustable air con. The view from our balcony was interesting - we could see one of the pools and the buffet restaurant - we enjoyed some people watching as they walked in for breakfast or dinner. Overall, a wonderfully relaxing holiday in sumptuous surroundings with superb staff. The managers' cocktail party was lovely and it was good to hear from the different managers and their roles. Entertainment was of a high standard and the bar waiters were attentive. We hope to come again.

Terzo soggiorno al Cordial Mogan Playa. Arrivati in aeroporto abbiamo trovato ad attenderci l'auto privata con autista che avevo prenotato dal sito dell'albergo. Con stupore siamo arrivati in hotel in limousine. (è costata meno del taxi!!) Alla reception il personale è sempre gentilissimo, da tre anni trovo sempre Enric, è un piacere rivederlo. La stanza era la 7325, al terzo e ultimo piano di una delle palazzine fronte piscina, con vista mare. La sicurezza di ritrovare il personale sorridente e la cortesia di tutti rende il soggionro piacevole ancora prima di partire. Devo dire che il giardino curatissimo è sempre più bello, l'ordine e la pulizia sono eccellenti. Mia figlia di 5 anni si è divertita tantissimo al miniclub e ha sfruttato a pieno le piscine dell'hotel. Che dire..... ritorneremo di sicuro!!!

We have just returned from our 6th stay at this great hotel. This is the 2nd time we have travelled here as a family and we all love the hotel, grounds, staff and location. The staff are fantastic and many have been there since the hotel was opened in 2004 (always a good sign !). The kids club is great and provides lots of different activities for kids throughout the day and our son couldn't wait to go every day ! There is also a kids disco 6 nights a week. The hotel is within walking distance of the beach, 2 supermarkets and a great harbour with lots of restaurants surrounding it. I would highly recommend a stay in this great hotel. We'll certainly be going back !

janiceken,
My wife and myself stayed here for 2 weeks from 28/08/13 to 12/09/13 as soon as you enter this amazing hotel it gives you the wow factor, we stayed in room 2501 overlooking the pool area and what a lovely view we had.Food was very good, we stayed half board and enjoyed all meals. Make sure you take a beautiful stroll through the tropical gardens in the hotel and visit the burial site as well which is full of history. If you want a great night in a local bar go out the front of the hotel and turn left about a hundred yards on your right is a bar called Bar Dani with yellow awnings. At about 8.30 every evening the owner and he's friends play guitar, harps, accordian and sing local songs ( look out for their young son Dani also) A walk to the marina is a must and also take the ferry to 3/4 different beautiful places for 13 euros each instead of taking the bus although a bus to Maspalomas along the cliff edge views is also a must.We loved this holiday so much we are looking at booking for next year and we have never gone back to a place before.The weather was spot on every day.

This truly is a wonderful hotel which I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone of discerning taste. It is staffed by the friendliest team I have ever encountered. We were warmly greeted at reception, which is situated at the front side of a huge three-level atrium full of exotic sub-tropical plants, by a lovely lady who refreshed us with ice-cold Cava. The Bell-Boy loaded our suitcases and other bags and wheeled them through the complex to our suite. We had booked a Junior Suite. The suites are situated at the rear of the complex and as such have the use of their own restaurant for breakfast, which is perfect as it is nice and close and never crowded. The suite, we were in room 9103, Jasmin block, block 9, 1st floor, room 03 and consists of a lounge with settee, chairs, tables, large flat-screen tv, dvd player, fridge, double doors onto a large balcony and a separate Juliette balcony. There is a square hallway with wardrobes, drawers and the safe. Off this is the bedroom which also has a Juliette balcony and a further set of doors onto the main balcony which is furnished with chairs, tables and sun-loungers – plenty of space. No balcony is overlooked by another. The lounge and bedroom have their own, separate air conditioning, which is excellent. It’s my first trip of many to the Canaries where I’ve actually been cold at night! Easily fixed by using a duvet and turning the air-con down! The fridge is free to use, the safe costs 18 Euro for the week. Breakfast was vast, mostly buffet style, but with a cook always present cooking eggs, etc. to taste. There was always pink and white sparkling wine freely available. There were loads of cold meats, smoked salmon, mackerel, ‘caviar’, cheeses, etc. plenty of smoothies, fresh fruit juices, tea, coffee, full cooked breakfast choices, fruits – fresh and in juice, yogurts, etc. Breads, jams, in fact everything you could wish for! The double pool towards the rear is where the entertainments take place. These are never too frequent or too intrusive – in fact the daily aqua-aerobics was pretty good fun! The pools are only chlorinated to the absolute minimum under Spanish law and mostly salt-treated. This works really well as your swimwear doesn’t get bleached and your eyes don’t sting! There are plenty of sun-loungers and they are fitted with changeable, comfy mattresses. Pool towels are free and changeable daily. There is a small baby-pool next to the main ones. There is also a further double pool towards the front of the hotel which is entertainment free. Both pools have drink and snack bars at the side. The evening meal is again buffet style but with two chef run cooking stations, one meat, one fish. There is also a choice of three roast every evening, again chef served. While we were there the choices included rack of lamb, beef, chicken turkey, rabbit, duck, suckling pig, pork fillet, salmon, hake, langoustines, sole, etc. – a huge variety of choice. Plus all around this there are probably eight other stations with all the cold selections, fruits, deserts, etc. I particularly liked the huge Grana Padana cheese with the top sliced off where you just cut out chunks from the inside. Wi-Fi is free and is available throughout the hotel and in all the rooms. The hotel does a ‘behind-the-scenes tour’ and I highly recommend it. I was so surprised by over a kilometre of tunnels and service routes beneath the hotel. You get to see all the workings and infrastructure from the laundry room to food-preparation, and you even get a free drink at the end. It’s a testament to the hotel that it opens itself up to such intimate inspection, the Director even includes his mobile number in the room information should there be any problems not immediately resolved. The Animation team work very hard and are very good at what they do. My seven-year-old couldn’t wait for the mini-club sessions – which even included pony riding! We didn’t attend any of the evening entertainments past the children’s mini disco, but there seemed to be a good, varied selection every night for those who could stay up later.

Just came back from a week so just a quick review of our findings. Location, perfect for a quieter holiday. Puerto Mogan is a lovely little village with some great places to eat (if you want to) and have a few beers We arrived late (about 01:30) and were greeted with a nice friendly member of staff on reception, being very helpful getting us to our room as quickly as possible as he could see we had a long day. The room itself was spacious enough and very clean. Nice comfy beds, although twins pushed together but that didn't bother us. We requested a balcony as I think that some rooms don't have them (I could be wrong). Our room was in a block that didn't get any sun on the balcony, for me this was better as it meant the rooms never got too hot, some people might not like this. Rooms had air con which actually did the job when it did get a bit warm. 2 x clean pool areas with plenty of sunbeds although there were people trying to reserve them before 09:00 but these were minimal. Temperature of the pools was perfect, not too cold as sometimes you can find. Both pool areas also had a jacuzzi. You received a 'pool' towel on your first day and you could exchange this daily for a fresh one if required. Food. Going half board I was a bit dubious as it was 'buffet' style, I have to say there was no need to be. The breakfast was excellent with a lot of options on offer catering for all tastes and nationalities. Evening meals were also excellent, once again there was plenty of choice available. Everyday they had different cooked meats, carvery style and also most days there was freshly cooked fish available. Desert could sometimes be a little difficult to get as it ran out quickly but they did fill it up as soon as possible. All foods were cooked properly and they were always hot. If you didn't want to have an evening meal one day you could 'exchange' this for the lunch menu, cant comment as we never did this. I heard some people complaining that you had to pay for drinks for the evening meal (unless all-inc) but I can't understand why you would moan, if you go to a restaurant you don't get them for free so this criticism was a bit harsh Staff, this is the first hotel I have been to where I can honestly say we didn't meet a single grumpy or unhelpful member of staff. In this day and age this is a very rare quality and I wish all hotels had staff like this... We didn't try the evening entertainment as we were always down at the many bars in the village (Mogan Mar is great). We would definitely go back

Back from 9 days at the Cordial Mogan Playa with my 2 girls aged 5 and 7 and I can honestly say I will definately be back. We have stayed in 5 star hotels and this is up there with them if not better. We arrived at 1am with our hired car from autoplus (which cost 80 euros for the duration) and we were greeted by a friendly lady and a glass of cava and much needed juice for my girls. First impressions were the pictures on the website do not do any justice to this wonderful utopia. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The whole place is extremely clean and well cared for and surrounded with beatiful gargens and waterfall features. The mountain views are amazing.The food both at breakfast and dinner was plenty, well cooked and varied. I cannot fault this place. My kids loved the kids club. I went there to celebrate a very special birthday and my kids informed one of team members. So on my birthday I was left in my room chocolates and a birthday card. When we got to the restuarant we had special plates on our allocated garden table. After my dinner the restuarant staff brought me a beautiful cake and sang Happy birthday to me. The whole this was extremely emotional and I was also presented with a Spa voucher which I thoroughly enjoyed.The hotel has rest rooms which are fully equiped with shower rooms, 3 bedrooms with twin beds, kitchen with a fridge freezer and microwave and a lounge for those that require them if they are catching a late flight. Thank you so much management and staff for the attention to detail you pay to your customers and making our stay extemely special from the receptionists, cleaners entertainers, lifeguards and everyone in the restuarant.

This was my first all-inclusive experience and I was very skeptical. The Cordial Mogan Playa fully exceeded my expectations The grounds were lush with tropical plants and trees, all labeled and well kept. Our room was nice, overlooking the pool. I was even impressed with the food selection -- we were there for a week and I found good things to eat every day -- even though I generally think buffets are lowest-common-denominator dining -- this was not the case here. Most importantly, I adored the village we were in. Such a gorgeous little fishing village. We loved our stay and will go back sometime in the future!

Just back from seven days at Cordial Mogan Playa Hotel (31st Aug-7th Sept 2013). This is a fabulous hotel set in its own grounds. Four bedroom blocks surround the double pool (child and adult areas) with pool snack bar/evening music bar, main hotel foyer and dining areas completing this section of the complex. Walking a little further you then come upon the spa, five other bedroom blocks, another double pool and day-time cafe/restaurant, plus various other features. The grounds are all beautifully landscaped and the whole complex has been fantastically designed. We travelled with Thomas Cook and transfer time was approx 1 hour each way, with only three or four drop-offs/pickup stops in total. Every aspect of the hotel-service, food, staff, pool area, cleanliness, etc was excellent. We had no problems getting sun beds though the gravel areas are difficult to walk on and not pleasant in bare feet. Some comments indicate that there was only "moouse" for dessert but while alot of moouse there were also many other things to choose from each evening. I had limited mobility on this occasion following recent knee surgery and found the complex very suitable although sometimes you had to walk a little further to the lift rather than use stairs. We will definitely be back in the future. Great for a relaxing holiday.

Excellent hotel very colourful with wonderful array of plants in the garden areas. Two similar pools and never a problem getting sunbeds even in the school holidays and there were 5 of us!!! Food in the restaurant was excellent with a varied choice each evening. The meat station had 3 variations of fresh 'carvery' meats each night. The rooms were very good and clean with a proper sized bath and powerful shower. The resort itself down by the port is fairly traditional and pretty. You can see that the island has not escaped the recession with a large shopping complex out side the hotel on two floors but with only about 5 shops in it open. All in all a very nice hotel and quiet resort.

We have stayed at the Cordial Mogan Playa from 26 Dec to 2 Jan for the past 2 years so we decided to try the hotel in the peak holiday season. The weather was superb but be careful as the sun is strong. The hotel is wonderful and again exceeded our expectations. We stayed in room 4504 which looks out on the first pool and is on the fifth floor so very quiet. I would have liked the travel agent to have offered us a junior suite so both us and our 10 year old had a bit more privacy so next time I shall book earlier and request it. In the afternoon you get the shade on the balcony which is pleasant so you can have a drink on the balcony in the cool shade after your shower. The hotel food is of an excellent standard and the buffet style breakfast and evening meal meant you could choose what ever you fancied. I must agree with dkeight's comment about the mousse and there being too many of them but a minor issue in the whole scheme of things. The staff are very kind and helpful and my son who can be quite shy took to them and joined in with most of the activities. The room was cleaned every day and a request for another pillow was brought to our room that evening. We had my husband's trousers dry cleaned and they got temporarily mislaid but again a minor issue to me but my husband did have a whinge (his only one of the holiday :-)). The pools and gardens are beautiful and always a pleasure to walk around. We took a walk most evenings to the harbour area (through the gardens or down the "fish" walk which is the pedestrian area out the front of the hotel) of Puerto De Mogan and enjoyed sitting watching the boats come in from the day and people milling around. What I really liked was that alot of Spanish people holiday there so it must be good! I would definitely recommend this hotel and if you are returning do not forget to apply for your Welcome Back card as that saves 10% off drinks and food.

un hotel eccezionale, con bellissime stanze, ritrovi e parti comuni di grande stile, ristoranti ottimi e sopra ogni cosa ... le piscine, la vegetazione con piante di ogni tipo seguite con cura e passione dai giardinieri. a poca distanza dalla struttura si può godere della spiaggia di Puerto de Mogan di origine vulcanica. alla reception si viene seguiti con competenza e gentilezza. Tour per ogni gusto permettono di assaporare il territorio in tutti i suoi aspetti.

We returned to the Cordial Mogan in August, having first stayed there in October 2012- we were not disappointed. At the risk of repeating what other travellers have already said....the staff were fantastic, hotel and gardens immaculate, excellent choice and quality of food and entertainment 'entertaining'. We stayed for two weeks half board plus (includes drinks with evening meal-local beer, wines, soft drinks). The restaurant management went to great lengths to accommodate us with a table of our choice and we had a very pleasant table in the conservatory. Whilst initially worried about returning to the same hotel twice, i found myself browsing availability for another trip in October as we enjoyed it so much.

Desde el pasado 19 hasta el 27 de agosto del corriente tuvimos ya no sólo la oportunidad sino el honor de poder alojarnos en el Hotel Cordial Mogán Playa. Es nuestro destino obligatorio como mínimo acudimos en dos ocasiones al año, ya que son tantas las comodidades y hospitalidad que te ofrece el hotel que hace que siempre el cliente repita. Si me remonto a mi experiencia en dicho hotel, la primera vez que asistí fue a la fiesta de fin de año que el hotel organizó tras su inauguración, y desde entonces, año tras años, no dejamos de acudir al mismo. En el Hotel Cordial Mogán he podido vivir los mejores momentos de mi vida pues allí comencé mis veraneos con mi pareja, posteriormente celebramos nuestra luna miel, mis embarazos, y desde entonces... con la familia ya al completo...y si llegamos... esperaremos celebrar allí nuestra jubilación. En todo caso, agradecemos enormemente el trato tan personal, exquisito que siempre han tenido con nosotros y como no iba ser de otra manera, hasta pronto.

Returned to this hotel at end of August 2013 and found that it was still excellent. We stayed in a junior suite which is situated nearest to the village and beach at the end of the hotel complex. Suite had a very private balcony with table chairs and two loungers and was ideal. Suite users have breakfast in a separate area from other guests and the food was as normal varied and well presented in a buffet style. Dinner is taken in the main dining area. Staff as usual were excellent and Hotel pool areas and restaurants likewise as is the spa which you can use for 15euros for 4 hrs with no treatments but pool, jacuzzi and sunbeds are supplied. Please please please. Do not take the tour operator bus as transport to this hotel. It took us 2.5 hrs by the time it went to other hotels in puerto RICO etc. if you like seeing a 10ft wide bus trying to negotiate a gap of 10ft 2 in in streets of resorts then this is fine but I don't. Taxi is 60 euros one way and takes 25 mins via the new motorway which now goes direct to Porto mogan and this is well worth the extra money. Private transfer may be cheaper than taxi but we couldn't face the return leg by bus on the return to the airport.

Hotel anlagt i utroligt flotte omgivelser. Først og fremmest skal fremhæves beplantningen. Næsten som at befinde sig i en botanisk have. Rigtigt gode restauranter og flere store pools samt alsidige og righoldige aktivitetstilbud. Store og flotte værelser. Hotellet ligger i en mindre fiskerby med masser af mulighed for at handle. Eneste lille minus: hvorfor badekar istedet for brusekabiner?

Just back from our second fabulous stay at the Cordial Mogan Playa and I am still sulking at having to leave! Firstly may I stress that we are a well travelled couple having stayed at many 4 & 5* hotels including Sandals Deluxe and we have always said that we would not visit the same place twice! We have to say that we cannot understand any bad reviews at this hotel?? Either these people have confused this hotel with somewhere else or are just too hard to please!! The Cordial Mogan Playa is a delight! From the moment you arrive and walk into the spectacular reception hall you know that you have stuck gold! It is totally different to anything else we have seen! The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean, with everything one would need. As we had been before we knew that there were no tea & coffee making facilities so we brought our own kettle and the hotel staff are happy to provide you with cups etc.. We found out later in our stay that you can loan a kettle from reception for a refundable 10 euro deposit. Also you can request a mattress topper if you find the beds too hard. Nice to know for our next stay! The grounds are a tranquil spectacular botanical garden with exotic plants, lemons & orange trees and we even spotted pomegranate this time. Add waterfalls and features, a bird aviary with colourful finches and canaries, Heaven!! There is a lovely Cactus garden, well worth a stroll around just to see the different species of Cactus. The garden's are a credit to the gardeners who work really hard keeping them so perfect! Love the tiny chapel too! The pools are gorgeous, we tend to use the one nearest reception as it is the quieter pool and we like to read and we understand that the other pool is where they hold the activities. Both pools are very clean with plenty of sunbeds. We had no problem getting a sunbed at anytime of day, which is surprising especially holidaying in August. We didn't use the Spa but other guest that we spoke to said it was lovely. Definitely Something for our next trip!! Breakfast is a feast, so much to choose, from cereals to pancakes, array of yoghurts and fruit and then the cooked options. We like to sit in the outside area overlooking the waterfall. Dinner is a bit more formal. You are given the same table for the whole stay but I cannot see why guest complain as if its not to your liking then the restaurant staff are more than happy to move you to a more suitable place. To the gentleman that complained in his review that he didn't like the fact he had to wear long trouser for dinner I say have some respect!! No one wants to eat in the evening with a guy bopping around in shorts!! (can't understand some people). The food is excellent with plenty of choices. Something for everyone. Loved the salads too!! You can swop dinner for lunch if you choose to eat out or are going on an evening excursion which is nice. Totally recommend you do the Music Hall Tavern, brilliant fun night out, so funny!! The evening entertainment on the whole is good. We saw some really good acts, loved IL TRIO one has to remember that this is hotel entertainment so it does vary. Now I kept the best until last! We have stayed in lots of nice hotels, with nice pools, nice rooms and good food so we thought about what makes this hotel stand out above the rest and we concluded pretty quickly that it Is the staff. It is quite evident that the staff are united in one thing.. their passion for the Mogan Playa. From the Reception staff to the Housekeepers, Gardeners, Pool staff, Bar staff, Restaurant staff, They are a team of people who are most polite, helpful and friendly but still remain professional at all times and make you feel like you are the only guest! Well done to the Management on building a team of people to be proud of!! We can't wait to come back!! We travelled with Thomson's this time and we have to mention that Andrew our Rep was an absolute Star! He was so informative and helpful. There was a slight mix up on our plane seats going out which Andrew sorted for us immediately we arrived also my partner was taken ill during our stay so we had to cancel a trip and Andrew went out of his way to get us on a later trip that was already fully booked! Thanks Andrew!!

I have just spent 11 days in the hotel and it was great. I have not been there for 5 years but the standards in the hotel have improved. The food was excellent and it was great to see quite a few of the old staff members still there so service is excellent. The wellness centre has been completely revamped and the gym is now a dedicated room with excellent modern facilities. The rooms and the bathrooms have been vamped up and the British tv stations have also n em considerably improved. The two new tunnels mean much quicker transfers and the towel service for the pools is excellent so well done and I will definitely return

Hôtel très calme bien situé à proximité de la plage, un parc magnifique, le personnel très pro souriant et aimable. Nous avons loué une voiture pendant 2 jours pour visiter l’ile. (Les dunes de Maspalomas, roque nublo , le long de la cote entre Agaete et La Aldea de San Nicolas et aussi le Monumento natural del Barraco de Guayadeque à voir absolument ). Nous avons aussi visité les fonds marin avec un sous-marin qui est situé au port de Mogan, c'était moyen car les poissons n'étaient pas au rdv. Le seul bémol au niveau de l’hôtel c'est l’horaire pour aller manger vous avez 2 services une à 18h30 et l’autre à 21h donc si vous avez faim vers 20 h vous devez attendre jusqu'à 21 h pour y aller. Le choix du buffet est varié et de bonne qualité. Je recommande cet Hôtel car mon épouse et moi avons passé de bonnes vacances .

I was fortunate enough to book the Cordial Playa Mogan for a couple of nights in July with my wife and 2 youngish boys. The first thing that impresses is the outstanding foyer of the hotel, both its size and styling is perhaps one of the most memorable you will find. The hotel room was terrific as it consisted of 2 actual apartments behind one external apartment door. My boys thought this was terrific. Some have remarked on here about some holidaymakers having the audacity to wear shorts for dinner! I can't get excited by such things and it is after all a holiday hotel in the Canaries. I should add that I wore trousers for dinner however. Their is commentary about the buffet lacking choice, well you must be hugely fussy people because the choice here is huge every night and although not cheap is excellent quality so you get what you pay for. The spa was superb according to my wife who had an exotic adventure treatment! We did not use the Michelin type starred restaurant as the food was too specialised for a 10 and 9 year old but would suit those either on their own or with older family members. The menu does look very special. Both the pools are lovely with small shingle type stones round them and not sand so you don't get covered near the pool. The location is a 10 minute walk to the lovely little "Venice harbour" where unsurprisingly they know how to charge the closer to the boats you get for both food and drink but it's very nice. This is an excellent stop off point for say a week or so and has calibre entertainment in its own stage area and thankfully not some student enjoying summer employment. Book in and enjoy a large gin of your choice and sit back and relax in the excellent surroundings. The new motorway gets you there very quickly by taxi at around £50 costly but fast and efficient but I was surprised how quiet the whole of Puerto Mogan was in the middle of July. I am happy to give more detail if you are considering this excellent hotel.

We recommend The Playa Mogan Playa for the very young to the young at heart with its fantastic swimming pools, choice of food, entertainment, don't miss the production of Grease its hilarious and most of all the wonderfully friendly management and staff. It can' get any better than this.

My family and I have just spent two lovely, relaxing weeks and had our third wonderful holiday at the Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa. The rooms were spotless as always, and once again all the staff were exemplary. We would particularly like to thank Monica on Reception (who was so helpful), and all the waiters and waitresses who served us in the restaurant. We would recommend using your discount at the Los Guayres restaurant - an experience not to be missed for any special occasion! Our only suggestion for improvement would be not to play sport on televisions in the la Fula bar when the musicians are playing relaxing music as this can often spoil the ambience! We were pleased to see that Cordial Mogan Playa is still a wonderful place for a holiday, and we look forward very much to visiting the hotel again in the future.

Passamos uma semana neste magnífico hotel com o nosso filho de 2 anos e recomendamos vivamente a experiência! O hotel em si é fantástico (os espaços exteriores são muito agradáveis, as piscinas fantásticas, os quartos bem decorados, a entrada - onde se encontra a receção - no mínimo, sumptuosa! O pessoal foi extremamente atencioso e simpático. O pequeno-almoço e jantar variados, com várias opções: comida italiana (muito procurada pelas crianças, por exemplo), comida local (paellas, patatas bravas, ...) e comida internacional. Há atividades a decorrer ao longo do dia em diferentes espaços do hotel, bem como animação noturna, em ambos os bares. Está muito bem localizado - a praia e um bom supermercado ficam a cerca de muito poucos minutos a pé; vários restaurantes, bares e lojas de souvenirs também. Aconselhamos a visitar as localidades próximas de Puerto Rico, Amadores e Anfi del Mar (uma excelente surpresa) - boas praias e áreas circundantes. Em conclusão, não temos nenhum aspeto negativo a apontar. Foi tudo ao encontro das nossas expetativas e, por isso, queremos encorajá-lo a decidir-se por uma experiência no Cordial Playa!

We just spent a week in the cordial playa and came back more than happy from our one week vacation! We booked a last minute package so we had it at a nice price. The hotel is beautiful with a lot of plants and water falls or fountains. It is located 200-500meters from the (very) little town Puerto de Mogan where you can find the beach, many restaurants and other attractions (boat tours, market, watersports). At the hotel we had half pension and were pleased by the wonderful buffet we had every day! There's always something new to try, and everything is delicious! Really the food was the one thing which was very important to me, and it was better than expected! Best hotel restaurants I have ever had. The rooms were perfectly sized and clean, and all the staff very nice and allways there to help. The swimming pool is just the right temperature, and there is always a seat available, no need to rush! (Actually there are two pools, so you have the choice!) There are a lot of activites like bowling, billard, video games, chess, tennis, mini disco, fitness or yoga... You certainly will find something to do... And if not it is easy to take the bus or the boat or even rent a car to do some sightseeing :) I would definitely go back there for another holiday!

We returned to Mogan Playa in June, our second visit & once again it ticked all the boxes. So nice to return knowing what to expect & it didn't disappoint. Staff from our previous visit last September remembered us & they couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. If you have any problems like accessing english channels on the tv, just mention it at Reception & they can soon solve the problem by a technician retuning. On friday mornings there is a tour round the hotel which we found interesting as we met working in a hotel ourselves. Hopefully we will return one day & make it a hatrick.

I stayed for a week in July 2013. Lovely relaxing hotel. Wide selection of very good food at breakfast and dinner. Perfectly clean. Friendly service from all staff everwhere in the hotel. Hotel complex very well laid out so never seems crowded and lovely grounds. Two pool areas and I always found free sunbeds. Just a short walk down to the seafront and town with plenty of cafes and restaurants. This is a genuine 4 star hotel. I've stayed in hotels before calling themselves 4 star, but really they were just very nice 3 star hotels. The cordial is really 4 star standard. I recommend this hotel for a quiet holiday to unwind and enjoy the pleasant town.

Wir waren zum 6.Mal zu verschiedenen Jahreszeiten dort und sind imer noch so begeistert, dass wir schon wieder eine neue Buchung gemacht haben. Die Hotelanlage ist sehr gepflegt und die Zimmer sind geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Obgleich das Hotel sehr gross ist bekommt man nie den Eindruck, da man in einem grossen botanischen Garten wohnt und es zwei grosse Poolanlagen gibt. Das Hotel bietet sehr viele verschiedene Aktivitäten an, es gibt was für jeden Geschmack. Wir empfinden es sehr angenehm, dass Gäste aller Altersstufen vertreten sind. Das Personal ist einzigartig, immer hilfsbereit, immer liebenswert und freunlich,man fühlt sich wirklich wohl. Der Ort gefällt uns auch sehr gut, ein kleines Fischerdorf mit Lokalbevölkerung und mit den meisten Sonnenstunden auf der ganzen Insel. Ausserdem gibt es gute Busverbindungen zu anderen Orten an der Küste. Für uns ist dieses Hotel unsere Oase, unser kleines Paradis geworden und bei Gesprächen mit anderen Gästen haben wir verstanden, dass wir nicht die einzigen sind , die immer wieder zurückkommen.

A late review for our family of five. We stayed at the Mogan Playa in June 2012 and had interconnecting rooms. The contact with the group to arrange this was easy and helpful as the chance of being located at opposite ends of the site concerned me when booking. Checking in was easy with a cold drink available as we waited. The rooms are well appointed and the hotel has the faciliities that you would expect. The gym would benefit from more equipment but our children loved the entertainment team and the on site facilities for kids. Pool's were never a problem to find a space near by and we didn't need to down at 830 to bag a bed which is always a relief. No complaints about the food or the service through out our stay and would happily stay there again.

My only slight issue is the room temps, they do get very, very hot at night and the roof fans are quite noisy to leave on,we hired an aircon unit which did help but what do you expect for late July!!

We've been there twice (july 2012 & july 2013) and we will go back. If you are looking for a quiet hotel with a magnificent garden, very good food, nice swimming pools, very professional and friendly staff next to a beautiful little harbor/town: stop your quest and book! Other positive points: always enough chairs around the swimming pools, and there is an archeological site on the terrain. Since this year the highway from/to the airport goes all the way to Puerto Mogan so transfer is only 40 minutes by car/taxi. More important: the old way around this valley has therefor become a practically unused route (less noise than last year) A last tip - for the adventurous: go walking (if you are in good condition & with lots of WATER) in the mountains just 200m away from the hotel (google: "Tabaibales").

We spent a week here for our honeymoon in April. From the minute we arrived we were impressed by the hotel. The service and surroundings were just perfect. The grounds of the hotel were beautifully kept with great care taken with the upkeep of the plants and gardens. We ate in the restaurant most nights - with such a selection it was easy to vary your meals. Despite what other reviews have said, we had a great laugh with the entertainment - your holiday is what you make of it too! There were some lovely touches in the hotel - the classical pianist in the cocktail bar, the bird house outside on the way to our room, and of course the big chess board outside - perfect! We were so delighted by the Cordial Mogan Playa that we are hoping to return next year for our anniversary - this time for longer!

We stayed here for the second year running taking my son and his girlfriend . What can I say other than what an outstanding hotels!! I requested the same room or same block as the last time we stayed via email and they fulfilled my request . We asked if we could have our evening meal in the conservatory outside they fulfilled our request again . They cannot do enough for you , I requested a topper for my mattress and it was on my bed before I went back to my room . The service and the staff are wonderful , the food is excellent so much choice and the hotel setting is magnificent . We cannot fault this hotel in any way , my son and his girlfriend enjoyed it too. It is a lot quicker to get to now that the new motorway is open although the taxi fare is the same but we booked through alpha rooms and got a good deal . The resort of Puerto Mogan is beautiful too a beautiful tranquil resort, not for those who crave night life tho as there is only a handful of bars open after 11pm . A fantastic time yet again and we will be returning

Just back from Mogan and well to be honest there's no complaints from me about this hotel, the minute you walk through the door to the minute you leave, the staff are doing there best to make your stay a good one. You talk to the staff and be polite to them and it will be returned no problem, from the cleaners to bar staff even the guys emptying the bins will be very helpful to you. If I could give a bit of advice it would be try and lose a bit of weight before you go out as the food here is some of the best I've ever had and if you can't find something you like here well stay at home in future. The manager even came to our table and evening meal and wished us a safe trip home and thanked us for going to there hotel. now about Mogan it's self if your looking to party have a wild time them don't go here' but if you want to relax in some beautiful surroundings and totally chill them you will be very happy here as it's a place to relax and enjoy life. We went on the submarine tour it was very good, also the dolphin trip was well worth it. Go enjoy be happy and most of all chill

Having returned from one weeks holiday 4th-11th July at this lovely hotel, we can only agree with other reviewers. Cleanliness is first class and the grounds are magnificent. All the staff seem to work hard to maintain this high standard. Having taken tips from other reviewers we e-mailed the hotel prior to arrival requesting a high floor and pool view and within minutes we had a reply stating that they would try and accommodate us on this. On checking in we were allocated room 2504 top floor of the block overlooking the pool. Both breakfast and dinner left us wanting for nothing as the range was vast and varied. We unfortunately missed the "Behind the scenes tour of the hotel" which we were looking forward to attending as we had done one before at another hotel. This was due to it clashing with the Thomas Cook welcome meeting. The only negative point was that the evening entertainment in the Fataga Bar was not all that good and could definitely be improved. Don't bother to go across the road for water as it is cheaper in the hotel shop. The road into Puerto de Mogan is a winding mountain road - so be aware if hiring a car. We would recommend this hotel to anyone and we hope to return soon ourselves.

This is only the second time in over 30 years of holidaying abroad that we have returned to the same hotel. The hotel is fantastic, staff are helpful and all speak a good standard of English. The rooms are lovely, this time round we had a first floor room facing the top pool which had a balcony and small garden. We emailed the hotel and requested a room in this block and they arranged it on arrival. I wouldn't worry too much about where you are located as all rooms in different areas have things going for them. The rooms are well equipped and the air conditioning works. Only small gripe there are more German channels on the TV than English, though quite a few children's channels are in English. On this note there were many more German people staying this year than last, which is probably due to the standard of the hotel. Food is excellent diner is set over 2 sittings 6.30pm and 8.30pm, we choose the 2nd again this year, we didn't have the children so there was no rush to eat however we found we were still eating at 10pm and as we are early risers we were quite full going to breakfast in the mornings. The pool bar is lovely and they have entertainment there every evening 8-10pm which is a decent standard. In fact I think better than the main attractions at the club in the evening which starts at 10pm. General points, wifi is free in main building and around the pool, I could just about get a connection on our balcony. They have a lovely libary/internet lounge.The hotel is spotless. The hotel is probably more suited to couples. The hotel itself is very picturesque, particular at night when the mountains in which the hotel is cut are lit. The resort of Puerto Mogan is small but beautiful, what shops there are sell good quality goods. There is a huge market on a Friday which encompasses the whole harbour. There are ferries dropping boats loads off into the harbour every 30 mins, quite an attraction. I have no reservations recommending this hotel.

It really is a fantastic hotel to stay in. We spent 9 days here with our 4 and 7yr old boys. They loved it and we loved it. As many have mentioned before, the place is spotlessly, beautiful. The staff are exceptional. Having stayed in many hotels around the world, we have never experienced anything like the fantastic service this hotel has. It is important to have the right decor, grounds, pool, food, rooms etc., etc., but too often we see all this let down by poor staff selection and attitude. In Cordial Mogan the Staff score 5 stars+ as far as we are concerned – a special mention for Marlene in the children club and Carla Rivera an excellent waitress. The pool area is beautiful. Quick confession: We were one of the culprits who put towels down while having breakfast. The only reason was so we would have an unimpeded view of the kids while they played in the pool, which was most of the day. I hope we didn’t put too many out. (When they’re older we promise not to do this!) Cordial, we cannot wait to return. Thank you so much for a brilliant albeit too short summer holiday.

On arrival for our second stay at this hotel we were greeted at reception by friendly staff who explained all the necessary information we needed for our holiday. Being Club Cordial members we had requested a specific room selection and were delighted to get the room we wanted. We were also pleasantly surprised to receive a welcome gift of wine and fruit as a consequence of returning to the same hotel again. The hotel facilities and food were once again superb and the staff pleasant and efficient and catered to our every need. The hotel gardens and pools were fabulous and we can't wait to return next year for our third visit. Many thanks to all associated with Club Cordial at Mogan.

The hotel was fantastic from the moment we arrived to the moment we checked out. As we checked in we were offered a glass of champagne which was nice, we didn't expect to get shown a laminate showing all the things you weren't allowed to wear in the restuarnt in the evening, hadn't seen that on here before. My husband had to wear his jeans and shoes every night, men are not allowed to wear shorts, flip flops or vest tops in the evening for dinner. We spoke to one couple who had been out and bought a pair of shoes to wear at night. The food was amazing, everything you could wish for and catered for absolutely everyone, there was always an excellent selection every day. The restaurant was clean and the staff were friendly. The bedrooms were just as they looked on line and were cleaned every day, the only thing missing was a kettle, there was a fridge in the room but not kettle. the grounds of the hotel were amazing with little waterfalls and beautiful plants and trees. The spa at the hotel is also a must - at 18 Euro's per person you can go for 4 hours and is usually quiet and so relaxing. All in all the hotel has everything for everyone and this is the first time ever when we have had dinner bed and breakfast and not eaten out at least one night, we ate at the hotel every single night as the food was amazing.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we were treated with so much care and attention. They give you champagne on arrival and take time to explain EVERYTHING you need to know. The room was lovely and immaculately clean and hygienic. The balcony and view from the room was beautiful. In fact, the entire hotel was breath-taking with stunning plants and waterfalls. It is a big hotel with lots to do. The pools are large, good temperature and there are plenty of sun loungers (but people do leave towels on loungers, but that is not the hotel's fault). The food is amazing and varied, with lots of fresh food cooked in front of you. They give you a personal table throughout your stay. The spa is also brilliant, they have a bowling alley and games rooms for children. The evening entertainment is not as bad as people seem to suggest (in my opinion). The location is wonderful too with the beach 10 mins walk away, and lots places to eat, supermarkets, a marina for taking boat trips etc. The submarine adventure is a must! Overall me and my wife thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I would encourage everyone to pay a visit to one of the best run hotels you will ever see!!

My mother has being staying at this hotel for the past week, on her own she is 85, my self and my family have been staying next door at the sister apts. she has been treated with extreme kindness, respect and politeness from all the staff at the hotel, as have we when we have been in and out daily to spend time with my mother. The facilities at the hotel are exemplary as is the food. All of this warrants 5 stars however if I could award an extra 5 for the way the staff helped us yesterday when my daughter fell ill while we were having lunch there, I would. It was a very frightening experience and the staff reacted quickly and efficiently with concern and tact, organising a doctor and then an ambulance to take us to a hospital. My daughter is recovering and I can't thank the staff enough. I would particularly like to thank Marcos Aquilar, who took time to sit with my mother and soothe her while the panic was going on! Thank you again everyone.

a20dun,
My husband, three kids (6, 5 and 2) and I have just returned from 10 days at the Cordial Mogan Playa. It was without doubt the best holiday we could have wished for. As we had travelled to gran canaria previously we knew that the resort of Mogan would suit us perfectly and we based our choice of hotels on the reviews we had read on trip advisor. Everything lived up to our expectations and more! The reception staff were welcoming and helpful. Our family suite (which included two adjoining rooms, a communal hallway and two well equipped bathrooms) was ideal for our large family and offered accommodation which we doubt we would find elsewhere. Each room also had a private, furnished balcony which overlooked the main pool. The bonus points for the rooms were the individually controlled air con, very comfortable beds, tv/dvd player and an empty fridge to use as you wish (as a mum of young children this was a huge bonus as we were able to keep cartons of juice, fruit and yoghurts fresh and cold for any time they needed a snack. It also meant we could enjoy cold drinks on our balcony once we put the kids to bed). The bathrooms were kept immaculately clean with a constant supply of hot water. Our towels were replaced each morning and bed linen changed whenever requested. We had a very comfortable stay because of the carefully thought out attention to detail within the rooms. We cannot fault them! The facilities, pool area and vast grounds were definitely the highlight of our holiday. Our sons (5 and 6) both shed a tear last night when it was time to leave their pool! We spent each day at the "second pool" which was immaculate. I am usually quite fussy about the cleanliness of public swimming pools but it didn't cross my mind once throughout our stay. The daily towel service, comfortable padded sunbeds, waiter service to your sunbeds and the general atmosphere around the pool area all added to our amazing experience. We also enjoyed a game of tennis and a walk around the archeological site just outwith the hotel grounds. The grounds within the hotel really are breathtaking. Walking through the grounds either during the day or at night (my personal favourite) you could not help but feel you were experiencing a little bit of paradise. The resort of Mogan provides just the right amount of bars, restaurants and shops centred around a beautiful beach and picturesque harbour. I hope my family and I will manage another trip to this hotel in the future. For people reading this who are looking for a relaxing holiday within an exceptional hotel which suits all ages I cannot recommend the Mogan Playa highly enough. You will be glad you booked!!

I usually prefer to go to different places but I have now been here 3 times and would go again as all aspects of the hotel are as excellent as the first time we went. We have now been here 3 consecutive years both as a couple and also with my family with age ranges from 1 to nearly 60. A brilliant time was had by all and the hotel staff are always friendly and helpful.

Booked many months ago after reading trip advisor, but became very wary prior to going as it seemed to be "Utopia", by trip advisor. No bad write ups, no problems and everything just as it should be. Could this be right. Have returned after one week being in the said "Utopia"". Everything is spot on and just as trip advisor says it is. Food is exceptional - so much choice, and the hotel believes in quality as well as quantity. The staff are polite and will help where they can. Nothing is too much trouble. Steff the Thomas Cook rep is brilliant, and dealt with a problem we had , professionally and courteously. This is one the first hotels where I can pretty much find no fault at all (there is an on-going problem with reserving sun beds - this is probably impossible to stop, but the hotel are looking into the problem). Special mention must go to Marco the Assistant Manager, and Redjuan the mad waiter who in our opinion went the extra mile. We didn't partake in the games and evening entertainment so unable to comment on that. There is a market in Puerto Mogan on a Friday (Don't miss it - superb), but don't forget to haggle. Half what they say, and then take another third off of it. This is a quality hotel, and everything about it is quality - Food - Pool - Staff - Location - Rep - Cleanliness - Service. Go there and be someone.

This was our 3rd visit to the Cordial Mogan Playa hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary and probably not our last. I cannot praise the hotel, staff and management enough. They all work together as a team and this shows as they obviously have pride in their job. The grounds have to be seen to be appreciated, you cannot see how wonderful they are by photographs. Food at both breakfast and dinner is very good. The choice is vast. Both pools are spotless - extremely clean and the correct temperature. Never had a problem in getting a sunbed. In our opinion this hotel takes some beating and we would not hesitate to visit again - hopefully very soon! Thank you everyone at the Mogan Playa.

An excellent hotel.Everything was exceptionally clean - they were even cleaning at 9 in the evening. The food and service were very good and there was always a good selection of food at both breakfast and the evening meal. The staff were always polite and very friendly which added to the relaxing nature of the holiday. There were always sunbeds available and the hotel grounds are spectacular. The resort is generally quiet and pretty - except for the extremely busy market on a Friday. Nightlife is limited so this hotel and resort are not particularly suitable for teenagers and younger adults - most people were in the older bracket. To sum up if you want a quiet relaxing holiday in clean peaceful surroundings then this hotel is well worth a visit.

Hemos estado varias veces en este hotel, estancias cortas y largas, y nos encanta. Desde la recepción hasta el último día todo es perfecto,la atención del personal en cualquier parte del hotel, todos muy amables y eficaces, la comida, la limpieza...siempre que vamos me pregunto como no aparece un solo bichito con toda la vegetación maravillosa que tiene el hotel y que lo hace diferente a cualquier otro. También nos gusta la cercanía a la playa. Perfecto para ir con niños, sobre todo si alquilas una junior suite. Si hubiera que ponerle algún pero quizás es un poco molesta la arena que rodea a la piscina....pero se puede soportar. Ya estamos planeando nuestra próxima visita.

A peine revenus (cette nuit), nous tenions à faire part nous aussi d'un commentaire concernant cet hôtel. Le plus difficile à faire est de trouver quelque chose de négatif.... cet hôtel est si luxueux, planté dans un endroit magique. La première impression quand vous arrivez est " wouahhhhhh... le cadre est trop beau", une réceptionniste vous accueille avec le sourire, et à partir de là, les vacances commencent. On vous accompagne dans des chambres impeccables.. avec coffre-fort GRATUIT (et c'est rare quand il ne faut pas payer ce genre d'option). Nous étions dans le bâtiment bleu avec un superbe terrasse dominant la piscine... pardon, splendide piscine parfaitement chauffée, et très agréable (je pense un mélange eau de mer et eau douce), dans laquelle nous y avons passé 6 heures par jour dans l'eau.. A savoir, que dans cet hôtel, vous trouverez toujours un transat de libre, pas de bousculade inutile et de devoir se lever à 6h pour vite y placer un essuie... tout est prévu!!!! Et qui dit vacances dit repas... et que dire de plus .. un choix incroyable aussi bien au petit déjeuner qu'au dîner, frais, varié, très bien présenté,... bref rien à redire.. Les animations sont sympas, et ils vous proposent sans insister.. c'est aussi ça la différence avec des clubs qui se montrent insistants. Le soir mini-disco pour les entants à partir de 20h.Les spectacles commencent relativement tard (22h ) et si comme nous, vous êtes accompagnés d'enfants.. c'est vraiment trop tard. J'aurais aimé avoir une soirée plus "dancefloor" juste un soir... On arrive au dernier point sur lequel je marque un grand centre d'intérêt.... le personnel, les animateurs, tout ce petit monde qui prend soin de vous n'ont qu'un seul mot d'ordre "vous faire plaisir" Toujours souriant, aimable, disponible et à très attentif... Cet hôtel c'est de la follllllllllllllllieeeeeeeeeeeeee

The reviews on this hotel are spot on. Just returned from a week here with hubby and 18 year old son ( who is very snobby about where he stays!!!) and we were all equally impressed. Hotel is spotless and set in lovely tropical gardens. We stayed half board and can say that the food was excellent both at breakfast and evening meal...plenty of choices of fish and meat dishes, something different everyday...if you don't like the food here there must be something wrong with you!! Best of all are the staff, they are some of the most polite and helpful that i have come across abroad. I would recommend this hotel and will look forward to a return visit in the future.

This Hotel should be rated as a 5*. We have stayed in many 5* Hotels throughout the World but in Europe this was one of the best hotels we stayed in. We literally couldnt fault one thing about it. The resort is quiet but it suited us (couple 48-51). The hotel grounds are like walking through a botanical garden, beds comfortable, food is the best I have ever had in a Hotel and I hate buffet type meals but decided to go half board anyway because its usually worth it even if you only eat 2 or 3 times but there was a chef on a hot counter and you could get a proper dinner like beef, chicken etc instead of picking up a bit of everything. I could type all night about this hotel but suffice to say we will be going back for many years to come. A tip is to ask for a room that has the sun in the evening and is not block by some of the wonderful trees on the grounds. We had room 1531 on the top floor of one the bocks not sure which one but it was a great location. Staff were brillant from the cleaners to the reception staff. Lovely spa best pedicure I ever had cost €50 you can pay €15.00 pp into spa for day and use the facilities. Entertainment is much better than I have ever come across. Usually its just the animation team putting on shows for the week but this Hotel brought in outdoor acts e.g. Drifters Tribute Band, some guy who won Pop Idol some years ago, the animation team put on Grease the musical which was very enjoyable.Better stop now before I bore everyone one one more thing The Irish Tavern down by the port serves excellent food and market on Friday is brillant.

We like everything about this hotel. The people, from manager to maid, are pleasant, helpful and efficient so we as customers have a smooth stress-free stay. The Hotel Tour is a nice touch and gives an insight into the life of the "hidden" workers such as those who work in the laundry while we lounge on the sunbeds or swim in the perfect pools. It's a pity, however, that the tour is on a Friday and coincides with the market which is also well worth a visit. Maintenance is swift and done with a smile while the gardens are perfect and the variety of plants is amazing. We've never heard so much bird song anywhere as in that garden. What more can we say? This is our favourite hotel because of the friendly staff, the wonderful food, the pools, the entertainment, the grounds and the location. No-one could possibly find fault with a holiday in this hotel and it goes without saying that we will be paying our fifth visit next year. Definitely! Margaret and Charles Hearn

Just returned from a weeks stay at this hotel, and I have not one bad thing to say about it. I am fussy, and I can say honestly, that this hotel is amazing with equally amazing staff and facilities, they have pretty much thought of everything. Even down to courtesy rooms and showers to allow you to shower and change before you leave, with a fridge, cots and bedrooms etc, all free. Clean and immaculate, beautifully green and lush around the complex, with a few cute feral neutered cats that have their own eating station and litter trays and are no trouble at all. Some are friendly, but keep themselves to themselves and you see them dotted around sleeping on the cave like areas dotted around. I have a bad back and when booking I requested a mattress topper, which was there on arrival ( and I hadnt expected that and in fact I had two! ) sadly my back wasnt great after the first night, and I asked at reception if they could do anything. Maybe add another topper? I spoke to Nerea, and she had helped me at check in, and with my mobile phone too, she said no problem, it would be sorted. Well, I am used to a negative response from most and "oh sorry we can't do anything", but not here. There was no waiting around either, it was done virtually immediately. The staff are so helpful and friendly and puts some of the service we recieve in this country to shame. I went with a friend who has been several times before, I can understand why. The rooms, hotel grounds, pool, food are all exceptional. The hotel is quiet, and even children around the pool are well behaved and seem to have a great time. I treated myself to a massage with Michelle, wow! I am used to massage and chiropractic treatments. I was suffering from a bad neck which was really bothering me when swimming. She soon sorted me out, it was a lovely treatment and she knew exactly what she was doing. I felt so much better afterwards and didn't suffer two days later as can sometimes be the case. ( being sore after being puuled around ) If you're thinking of going, think no more, book it! Weather perfect, with long hot sunny days. Although I am sure the staff can't control that! Arrived back in the UK, what a come down. Long, long wait at Stansted to go through passport control, no smiley faces and the lady at the taxi rank barely raised her eyes to look at me let alone really speak. Yes, I was home.. Well Done Mogan Playa.. a superb week away, Thanks so much for a relaxing break. Kim

I just spent 9 days in the Cordial Mogan Playa. I am 6 months pregnant and brought my 4 yr old son (Hubby had to work ...!!). Getting the main points over with first - this is a fabulous hotel, super food with an incredible selection in their buffet and the staff were second to none. The design of the hotel is beautiful. Full of trees, little caves and stone walk passes, bridges and little water features. And that is both the outside and the inside !! The buffet is not done justice by calling it a 'buffet' such is the selection, the quality. Much of the meat and fish cooked freshly in front of you at dinner and the same for eggs and omelettes at breakfast. There is very little that you could wish for that they don't cater for food wise. They have a little children's room off the restaurant with DVDs playing so my son and I often had our dessert there. Dessert choice is fantastic too. There is so much healthy food, as well as ... well let's just say indulgence food. I might be eating for an extra 1 being pregnant, but I think I actually ate for many, many more....I had to try everything.. The pool area is gorgeous and spotless. The whole hotel is spotless in fact. It's also a large hotel with 2 large separate pool areas and a baby pool. Loads of sunbeds. Towels offered daily too. Plenty to choose from at the pool side snack bar. There is aqua aerobics and other classes daily too, if you want to join in. Evening entertainment is varied every night. From a relaxation perspective this was 10/10. Lots to avail of in the hotel but no night-time noise or interruptions. DVD player in the room also if you wish to have a few quiet nights in after dinner(suited me and my 4 yr old). Mogan itself is a beautiful port village and is very picturesque and friendly. The hotel is a very pleasant walk to the beach ( 5 mins) and the Port just beside it. Lovely restaurants (Tu Casa by the beach and The Marina Bar at the Port) On a more personal note. I had a few minor scares with my pregnancy (all good now) and the staff in the hotel were terrific. That says it all for me. Days later they still thought to ask me how I was and could they do anything. It was their personal touch during this time of concern that really proved to me how customer focused they are. Will I be back? Most certainly. And I cannot wait. A great hotel, with great facilities, great staff and great food. Pleasure after pleasure. 10/10 for me.

Visited this very efficiently run hotel in April. Management and all staff go out of their way to get it right to make your hoilday memorable and special. Superb weather and I believe the island is an excellent winter destination. Apparently the hotel's busiest time is Nov - April. Food is Self-service, but dont let this put you off. The choices are excellent for both breakfast and dinner. One must be a terribly fussy eater if your unable to find something that suits your palette! Room was large, airy, quiet and very clean with a balcony, overlooking the pool area (which I'd recommend). There are two wonderful pools, with ample, comfy sunbeds. We used the main pool nearest the dining area and everywhere around is pristine clean. Amazingly the pool was slightly heated! The hotel's location is perfect and has a lovely walkway through the hotel's lush, pristine gardens, out onto a quiet road towards the beach, resort and marina of Mogan Playa, which takes approx 10 mins. Along the front you'll find ample eating/drinking places, whether it be for coffee, lunch snacks/tapas or an evening drink. We spent a week here and felt thoroughly rested. The only gripe...entertainment not up to much, but then that's often the case!

After a long cold wet Winter, my Wife & I returned to the sunshine for two weeks in June 2013 to the Hotel Cordial Playa,This was our seventh consecutive visit, and having travelled and stayed in numerous hotels in many countries, we have yet to find one which offers such a friendly and courteous service, with all the other added comforts. The hotel is situated within a garden growing many exotic trees and shrubs,which extend into the interior of the hotel. Water features add to the pleasant and peaceful atmosphere. The gardens, pools, and hotel buildings are immaculately maintained. The food is something to look fotward to, and all meals are buffet style There is a fabulous choice and the service is excellent. We have returned home fully restored, and definately will be visiting again. Thanks to all the staff for making all our stays there such memorable occasions.

We stayed in Cordial Mogan Playa for 2 weeks with my 2 year old daughter. I can say that this is the best hotel we have stayed in(even better than 5 star ones). It is managed perfectly, the grounds are beautiful and the staff are AMAZING. Everywhere is spotless, even the gardens. The photos on the website don't do it justice, the swimming pools and the grounds are beautiful. The food and entertainment is very good as well. I wish I could give 10 stars for Service, Value and Cleanliness.

This is one of the best if not the best hotel we have stayed in. The transfer was a nightmare we had extra drop offs and it took nearly three hours. Check in was simple and had a drink waiting for us and some cold food as we were too late for dinner. All of the staff were really friendly,the gardens were very well kept the best we have seen. All areas were spotless including the rooms. The food was second to none,we will be going back for sure and can see why people return. We can't understand why this is not a five star hotel. We walked to the harbour every day and most nights which is lovely. Thank you for a great holiday.

Mostrar traducciones automáticas Sí No Please don’t book to go to this hotel as it may mean it is fully booked for when we plan a return trip!! We recently arrived back from a week in Gran Canaria staying at Puerto Mogan in this hotel and we had a really lovely holiday. Wanting to fly from our nearest airport, which is Exeter, we looked at various destinations and finally decided on Gran Canaria, it was then a matter of deciding on which hotel. As usual we checked out the reviews of hotels on Trip Advisor, this is something we always do now before deciding where we will stay. The reviews of others seemed really good regarding the Cordial Mogan Playa so based on this we booked our stay there, it turned out to be a great decision. We arrived at the airport in Gran Canaria at around 10pm and as part of our travel agent booking had a private taxi transfer included. This was excellent as we collected our cases and then straight out into our waiting taxi and were at the hotel within 30 minutes. It was here that our good experience at this hotel began!! The lady on reception(Monica) was lovely, giving us a very friendly welcome, was totally efficient and we were very quickly helped to the room by the hotel porter who was telling us all about the hotel on the way to the room. Due to our late arrival we were given a packed lunch type box which was okay without being great. The room itself was very very nice, well set out and spotlessly clean. Waking at around 9am we were a bit disappointed to see it was cloudy however by 10am the cloud had gone and it was a beautiful sunny day! This was the same virtually every day and seems to be because Gran Canaria has what is termed a microclimate. Deciding not to go down for the breakfast, included in our half board booking, we ordered breakfast from room service which arrived very quickly and was lovely. The porter the night before had said the hotel was almost full so we expected it to be very busy when we ventured down to one of the two free form pools. This was not really the case we had no problem finding loungers and cushions and collected our towels at the pool. The towels you keep for the duration of your holiday but can change for fresh ones at the pool at any time. As I mentioned the hotel has two lovely pools each with poolside restaurants/bars, they also have access by gentle sloping walk in steps which would be great for anyone who is disabled. One of the pools has activities going on during the day and is where most of the children at the hotel went although to be honest there were not that many at the hotel during our stay. We elected to use the other pool which we loved due to the design and layout. At this point I have to say whoever designed this hotel did a brilliant job, it may have been full but at no time did you feel that it was. It is divided into blocks each with a lift, so no humping up any stairs, all of which I would guess have a reasonable view from their balcony. The reception is lovely, open planned and has a piano bar where you can sit for a drink before your evening meal. So in my opinion you have a hotel with a great layout then you come to the icing on the cake, the gardens!! They are stunning!! To be honest they are more like a botanical garden, there are plants everywhere and they have been put to great use to make this a lovely hotel. There was entertainment every night which we enjoyed, maybe not show time in Las Vagas standard but enjoyable none the less. The prices of drinks and snacks around the hotel were not cheap but definitely in line with what you would expect in most of Europe these days. As I mentioned the package we booked was on half board, normally we book bed and breakfast so we can eat at local restaurants. However we went down to the main restaurant on our first evening and never went anywhere else afterwards. The food was really good, the variety was amazing, generally buffet in style but with a carvery station and areas where meat and fish were cooked fresh in front of you. We went down for breakfast a few times and the variety was equally excellent. Outside of the hotel was great, short walk through the hotel grounds brings you to a short street leading to an open square bordered by shops the other side of which are the Marina area and promenade beside the beach. The whole of this area is lovely, beautiful little streets adorned in flowers, spotlessly clean and a pleasure to walk around. The other big bonus for some would be that the walk from the hotel and around the town of Puerto Mogan is that it is almost totally flat. Immediately opposite the hotel is a shopping centre with a variety of shops for picking up bit and pieces. There are also several banks with ATM's in the town as well. Our plan for this holiday was to relax so we did nothing but chill out for the week so we can’t tell you what the rest of Gran Canaria is like but if you want a lovely hotel in a great setting, spotlessly clean and with lovely friendly staff look no further. This hotel is advertised as 4 star and I think that is right but it is close to being 5 star and to be honest I don’t think I have stayed in a better 4 star hotel. We have already previously booked a holiday for later this year and one for early 2014 but hopefully we will return to this hotel later next year. We will be looking forward to it. A big thank you to the hotel management and the staff who made our holiday very special!

Returning to this hotel is a joy and from the time you enter reception until the sad farewell day, you are treated in a 1st class manner by all the staff and management and it must not be forgotten that this hotel holds 4 stars only but is high up on that scale of quality. This was our 3rd visit and due to my disability I had requested a room close to the main reception and was put in the room we had requested from the previous year which was ideal. I asked for extra pillows and a bed topper and these arrived promptly even though we had only just arrived on a late flight. A+ Service!!! The hotel is relaxing and is well positioned for a walk to the Harbour so you can take to the water in a variety of ways ,Glass bottom boat, Submarine or Pedlo! Food is a high priority on Mogan Playa,s list and the choices are wide and varied, but if it is your first visit it pays to take a bit of time to accustom yourself with the food layout in the restaurant, as we have often seen new arrivals walking around with a plate not knowing what to chose! The staff are exceptional as it seems that nothing is too much trouble for them and all you have to do is ask and they will bend over backwards to help. The only way to experience this hotel is book it and be amazed that places like this exist hence the reviews.

We have returned from 9 nights with our 2 boys. All the excellent reviews of this hotel is spot on. Our children loved the mini club and disco each night. The staff were all excellent and all made a fuss of the kids each night. It was quite quiet the hotel but this meant we could get sun loungers and no rush at meal times. Food was excellent and the kids loved Carmelo! Room was lovely and spotlessly clean, Only issue we had initial room was facing a residential complex and some dogs were barking non stop until 12pm at night and started again at 6am. The hotel obliged with moving us right away. Dont usually visit the same place twice but would most defintely book to go again here, the best holiday we have had with the kids in last couple of years.

This was our 4th visit to the hotel, and will not be our last. The staff as always were friendly, and nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was good with a varied choice, and a brilliant breakfast to start off the day. The gardens are kept immaculate, and everywhere clean. I would recommend the cordial playa to anyone who is looking for a peaceful holiday at a reasonable price.

There's little more I can add to the 5 star reviews already given by previous contributors. The hotel is great. The food is the best buffet-style food I have ever experienced - a vast selection. We were given the option of sitting inside or outside for our meals and we chose outside. This was in a lovely uncrowded glass conservatory which was extremely pleasant. We were allocated a table for dinner - something I don't usually like. However, we were more than happy with where we were seated and always felt we had plenty of space around us. The piece de resistance with this hotel is the beautiful gardens. They are immaculate - some fascinating plants, all labelled and a real treat for visiting gardeners. The resort of Mogan Playa is quiet but very picturesque with some very good restaurants and just a short stroll through the gardens from the hotel. I'm sure we will return to this lovely place.

We spent 2 weeks in this amazing hotel. The hotel is beautiful, pool areas fantastic, food is out of this world but the most wonderful of all is the staff. We had a junior suite with a garden, table and chairs and sun loungers which was nice to relax before dinner. The suite was spotless and cleaned every day by friendly maids. The beds were turned down every night and chocolate left - which was a nice touch. Nothing was too much bother for the staff. When we arrived at 11pm we were offered a buffet meal as we missed the evening meal. As our flight did not leave until late we were given a lunch voucher on checking out. Not many hotels go that extra mile. The ground of the hotel are beautiful with species from all over the world. There is an archeology site within the hotel grounds and a chapel. Nice to stroll around in. The choice of food in the buffet restaurant is huge and is of a high standard. A diet is definitely required when you return. Would recommend this hotel for those wanting a carefree and relaxing holiday

After just spending a wonderful week at this hotel we are already planning a further visit. We were amazed how calm and unhurried this hotel is, totally relaxing. The weather was wonderful, food excellent and the staff exceptionally friendly. The whole ambience of the place leaves you feeling good. We went to the al a carte restaurant on Saturday night to celebrate our wedding anniversary, it was lovely. Food was delicious and the staff very welcoming - will definately eat there again on our next visit. We walked around the grounds many times and never failed to be impressed. The church is lovely and so unexpected in a holiday complex. But then again this is no oridinary hotel. We met some lovely people and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Well done to the whole team who made our stay memorable.

We are just home from Cordial Mogan Playa and felt we had to comment on the excellent service at this hotel. This was our 3rd time staying at this particular hotel and it was just as good as before. We have been here ourselves before and also with our daughter and family and whether you are here as a couple or with children all needs are catered for. The children love the kids club and mini disco and the adults can either participate in the aqua aerobics etc or not. It is never noisy, no one is fighting over sun beds etc, the staff are so courteous and obliging, the food is plentiful and excellent... We cannot fault it... We will be back at the end of the year.. Fab!

I now feel motivated to continue the classes back home An overall relaxing stress free experience we intend to go back

We enjoyed our 10 day holiday in this hotel very much. Our rental car we booked from home through CICAR, 160€ for 10 days.The hotel is easy to reach from the airport with a rental car on the new motorway(35mins.) The service was always friendly and the room (we booked a suit) always clean and beds made twice a day. The food was good, especially the breakfast and the goumet restaurant. Our daughter(6y) enjoyed the childrens entertainment and loved Claudia, Carlos(hotel mascot) and the childrens evening disco. The hotel has 2 large, identical pools and beautiful tropical gardens. 5 min. walk into the small picturesque fishing town, Puerto Morgen. There is a small man made beach, restaurants and small shops but no night life, if you are looking for that. We found the hotel perfect for a relaxing holiday in the sun. We spent alot of time by the pool but also did afew day trips to Maspalomas and the sand dunes and the mountains which we can recommend. We can highly recommend this hotel and we would like to visit again.

Just returned from this gorgeous hotel and cannot recommend it enough. Ideally situated about a 5-10 minute walk from the beach, restaurants, and shops. Peurto Mogan is absolutely beautiful and rightly named as little Venice. No time share sales people bugging the life out of you, just a relaxed way to spend a well deserved week away. The locals are so friendly , the staff are friendly and extremely helpful in all areas of the hotel, the rooms large, air conditioned,and well equipped with hairdryer, toiletries and the little extras that we all forget such as a nail file and comb ! We will definitely be returning to this excellent place

The food has so much choice, it would be impossible not to please even the most particular of eaters. The rooms and all areas of the hotel are spotless and clean. The hotel offers all kinds of activities (if you want them) and entertainment (again if you want it). This hotel has extremely high standards and comes highly recommended in a quiet and peaceful unspoilt resort. Cant wait to get back there!

Estuvimos en este hotel de Gran Canaria la primera semana de junio y pasamos unas vacaciones excelentes. En esta época es temporada baja por lo que el hotel estaba muy tranquilo. Las instalaciones son de primera calidad, el restaurante de buffet es buenísimo y muy variado y qué decir del restaurante Los Guayres, en donde celebramos nuestra cena de aniversario, que es una cocina muy elaborada y buenisima. Todo el personal del hotel es muy amable, desde la gente de recepción,hasta los camareros, la gente de la piscina... La playa está a menos de cinco minutos caminando y también es muy bonita y no cubre mucho. Es un hotel recomendado para todo el mundo, para parejas, familias... ideal para personas que buscan vacaciones en una zona no tan concurrida como Maspalomas

This Hotel just gets better, we have stayed here 3 times and we cannot find any faults, the food, the friendly staff, and the overall experience is one we would recommend to anyone. The resort is quiet and peaceful, and this hotel makes your holiday one to remember. We had the earlier evening meal 6.30 to 8.00 and because you are allocated a table for the duration of the holiday you have the chance to meet other guests, which we did and formed a nice relationship with another couple.

Recently stayed for two weeks and will definitely return in the near future. Standards across the board are still very high, possibly improving since our visit last year. Most recent reviewers have been very fair, praising all that is good without too many complaints and this is just reward for the staff who strive to maintain their reputation as one of the top holiday hotels of this type and price level. The accommodation is spread around a large area of tropical gardens and room positions could change markedly from one visit to the next but there are very few obvious complaints suggesting that most positions are satisfactory. Our room was at the main pool near reception and that was fine. The food is good, lots of choice and varied (no curries though!). The nightly entertainment is still below par in the show bar but the musicians in the foyer bar, when on, make it a lovely place to spend a couple of hours. The pianist and saxophonist duo were excellent as was the singer/pianist. There's no need to go to the show bar when acts of this standard are on. Well done management, keep them on! My wife insists on giving Sarah's fitness classes a very special mention. She was very professional and enthusiastic, maintaining the very high standards she showed last year. We have been to many, many hotels over the years and these classes are as good as you get. More support from hotel guests would help but those who do attend get full benefit from an excellent instructor. Well done Sarah! I used the gym daily finding the varied equipment in good working order as before but there is a case for installing a rowing machine (I moaned about this last time too!). Walkers of all levels please note that there is a hill across from the hotel with some of the best walking available in the Canaries. A 30 minute steady climb, up an old road gets you to a great viewing area which most reasonably fit people should manage. Follow the road a little higher to more level walking and peace and quiet for miles and miles. There are other, rougher paths branching off which lead to views that go on and on - we walked everyday and would go back tomorrow just for the walking. It's a pity that on our last day we found that a couple from Skegness had taken a pot of paint to the top and in large letters had written their FULL names, where they lived and the date (05.06.13) for all to see. Only the Brits could do that. Ashamed? so am I. Once again, well done to the hotel staff, see you soon!

Food was very good the only complaint i would have is could not get a hot cup of tea.Mangement in the restaurant were very attentive , when we arrived on our first night they give us a table in the centre we asked if it would be possible to have one at the window and two days after they obliged us .

We had an absolutely peaceful holiday at the Cordial Playa. Arriving just in time for dinner they organised our luggage whilst we ate. Food at each meal had choice and good variety, yes you had to pay for water but you do at most hotels these days. After having an accident I needed a comfortable bed and they provided mattress toppers and pillows to make it more comfortable...excellent service on arrival nothing was a problem. Staff always approachable and gave good service. Hotel is in walking distance of Mogan harbour and shops, restaurants. We used the spa which was fairly priced. Plenty of sunbeds and no need to place towels on beds at all! Would definitely go again

My wife and I are not long returned home after our second 2 week holiday in this lovely hotel. We are happy, rested and refreshed and full of pleasant memories of our stay in Mogane. I have no doubt but that this has been facilitated by the good humour and happy disposition of every member of staff whom we encountered during our two week stay. Any wish or request was favoured with immediate and positive attention. The Hotel gardens of perfectly manicured shrubs, exotic colourful flowers and amazing cacti, give the whole environment a most pleasant ambiance. Our air conditioned modern room with flat screen tv and dvd and balcony overlooking one of the two pools provided a most pleasant refuge from the heat of the midday sun and our chosen torture of fitness workouts which were provided by the wonderful and exuberant instructor, Sarah! we will miss her. One unusual feature of this Hotel which we found was the in-house shop! Here they were selling large bottles of water for as little as 1 Euro and we found other goods and trinkets to be similarly competitively priced and again, served with a smile, well done here! Finally I should mention the Cordial Welcome Back gold card, offering discounts and treats to returning guests, very nice touch this. We look forward to our next visit..

Our first stay here, but certainly not the last! My husband and I spent a week in the end of May 2013, and being quite "spoiled" from travelling we were positively surprised. What a lush and fertile oasis, in the middle of the desert-like island. The pools with comfortable sunchairs in sand, the waterfalls, the stone caves, the paths, the cleanliness, the quiet surrounding, the constant blue sky and gentle breeze - a blessing for two worn-out norwegians. The food was also a surprise; we often experience the spanish cooking to be a bit flavourless and tame. Not so in this hotel. Everything fresh and tempting, and the a la carte restaurant was excellent. The service was impeccable, at any level (Hi, Sofia! :)). The only downside was the beds; the mattresses and sheets are not very comfortable. Warmly recommended anyway! We'll be back!

Cordial Mogan Playa Hotel This is my second visit to this hotel with my wife, the first being in 2008, only a few years after it opened. We are mature travellers. This hotel is still fantastic in every way. My wife and I have been to more than a hundred hotels in Europe in the last 17 years, most of them 4 and 5 star hotels and to be corny, in the words of the song by Tina Turner this hotel is ‘Simply the best, better than all the rest’ in our opinion. How this hotel is only a 4 star plus amazes me but the only reason I can think of is that it is not on the beach. The beach is only a few hundred yards through the beautifully maintained Botanic gardens. The reception is amazing with a huge coloured dome with sunlight shining all the colours on the waterfalls, restaurant etc. areas below accessed my two glass lifts. All the staff are brilliant, the food in the morning and evening is varied and you can find something different every night form counters with Chefs cooking meats and fish, to buffet style counters. There is also a choice of smoked salmon, sardines, mackerel, pilchards etc. most mornings besides the usual cooked breakfast, and plenty of fresh or tinned fruit. I cannot praise this hotel highly enough and will be returning. I would also like to thank Estefania Deniz who managed to allocate the same room as our previous visit, overlooking one of the large pools and gardens. I e.mailed ahead and the hotel said they would do their best, and they did. Puerto Mogan itself is a beautiful resort sometimes called little Venice. If you go you will see why. There are no negatives with this hotel or the area.

My husband and I have just returned from our first visit to Gran Canaria and the Cordial Playa Mogan. We were impressed by the courtesy and kindness of the staff, nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Our standard double room with balcony was very spacious and very clean. The hotel has a high standard of cleanliness. We booked HB and found that worked well for us, the food was plentiful and various, lots of opportunity to try new flavours. We particularly enjoyed the gardens which were well kept and interesting. Puerto Mogan itself was charming, ideal beach for very young families, older children may need more in the way of entertainment however the lack of commercialisation adds very much to its charm compared with other resorts. We will certainly return to this hotel.

I never review on here but had to share this. As a family with 3 young children 4, 3 and 8 months and grandparents travelling these were the perfect apartments. We booked 2 x 2 bedroom apartments, all I can say is wow! Large bedrooms with en-suite off the main room plus separate bathroom. The balcony was brilliant extremely large sun all day 4 sun loungers, table chairs and a shower perfect for chilling out in the afternoon. Play area and soft play for the kids, 3 swimming pools. Could not fault it will definitely return. Puerto Mogan itself is lovely 10 minutes walk from apartments, very safe for families, lovely beach and marina with shops and restaurants, we stayed for a week and ate somewhere different every night. Would recommend Zoo, Tex Mexs and Marina Irish Bar.

Wow, what a place! Stayed between 2nd May to 9th May 2013. Never been to this side of the island before and was not disappointed. Let me start with the hotel, we stayed at the Coridal Plus venue which for us included full board plus. The design and build of the complex is amazing. Lots of internal plants, trees and waterfalls and the walkways, paths and pool areas are beautifully decorated. Our room was a twin room which had an extra fold up bed - we had to move some of the furniture around to fit the fold-up bed in. The room was clean and nice - bathroom was spacious with a attached hair-dryer. A small 'mini-bar' (but empty) fridge is in the room for personal use. TV has a range of English and foreign channels. Air-Con is part of the room. Rooms were cleaned every day which kept the place nice and clean. Food was fantastic. For breakfast there was a massive range of food on offer even down to the chef making omelettes when requested. Lunch was buffet style with a smaller range of food but dinner was on an epic scale of food and themed foods during the week. For dinner, you have to select one of two sittings - the reason why you do this is so that you are allocated the same table each night at the same time slot - handy to know without debating where to sit and the table is all prepared waiting for you. If you book Full Board Plus then you have an option of free drinks available to consume and this also applies to lunchtime. If you require drinks during the day then you have the choice to pay cash or put the charge onto your final hotel bill so it reduces the need to carry cash with you. We stayed mainly by one pool for the week which clean and not busy. For active people, there is a tennis court, ten-pin bowling alley, pool table, tennis table and some arcade machines. There was entertainment every evening and found that this was a bit hit and miss which normally started at 22.00 and was over by 23.00. When I stayed, there were mainly older couples or very young families which added to the peace and quiet of the area. The harbour is less than 10 mins walks away which is a very pretty place along with a beach and an option of boat trips to other parts of the island. There is a main bus station less than 5 mins away although I didn't use any buses during the week. Would I go back again? You bet I would - as mentioned, a fabulous place, wonderful staff and a beautiful location of the island. Happy to answer any questions....

Séjour en Junior Suite, au calme, et avec beaucoup de place. Environnements de jardins très agréable. Petits déjeuners dans un bâtiment séparé, là aussi pour les JS. Bons buffets, pas trop de bousculade. La plage est sans plus, la petite station Puerto Mogan est à taille humaine, mais manque un peu d'authenticité (un peu surfait). Cela reste quand même bien agréable à côté des grosses stations qu'on peut trouver aux Canaries. Les piscines sont chauffées, ce qui n'est pas le cas dans tous les hotels...

Just returned from our EIGHTH visit to the Cordial Mogan Playa and already planning the ninth! What a gem of a hotel this is. All the staff are so friendly and accommodating - they really make you feel welcome and can't do enough to make you comfortable - from the general manager to the gardeners, it's like one big family! We've tried lots of other four star hotels in many different locations but none of them come even close to this one. For a relaxing, chilling-out holiday with or without children, I would cerainly recommend the Cordial Mogan Playa.

We travelled here on a first family holiday with a 22m old. It was quite superb. While we have some suggestions these are really to add to the experience, not things that took away from it. The hotel is a lovely place, with extensive grounds and although was, we were told, nearly full to capacity didnt feel crowded. The three pools (2 large and one kiddies) were warm and well maintained, and there was a good presence of staff around. the grounds are extensively landscaped with lots of arid region plants, mostly with labels. There are a good selection of restaurants and bars, and again not crowded. Puerto Mogan is a couple of hundred meters away via a mostly pedestrianised surface, good for a buggy! Nice beach and all the trimmings, a nice marina also with astoundingly clear water. We were on half board so ate each evening in the hotel at the buffet. No complaints, lots of food and all good to above (veggies so so but...) with different themed meats and fish most nights. Over a week you couldnt really tire. A fantastic breakfast buffet. One thing I will say is the staff were astoundingly nice to all, and mostly so to any kids we saw them interacting with (including ours). Really nice, pleasant and warm and very very obliging. We had a lovely room, not very large but perfectly ok for a week, with a small patio area. Main suggestions to make this even better is perhaps some more toddler/wobbler toys in the children club and to perhaps create a botanic trail perhaps with a selfguided tour. The gardens are wonderful but if your like us you look and wonder "What is that " a lot...

El Hotel Cordial como bien su nombre indica se caracteriza por la gentileza de su personal y la máxima atención al cliente, y el clima donde se ubica este hotel también hace referencia a su nombre. La existencia de hoteles superiores o iguales en categorías de estrellas en la isla de Gran Canaria no hay diferencia quien se lleva el mayor galardón. Sin duda en cuestión de hospitalidad, limpieza interior y exterior, entorno y alimentación, el Hotel Cordial es el mejor hotel en Gran Canaria para pasarlo en familia, pareja, amigos, bien por unos días o largas estancias, dado a su calidad-precio.

My husband and I have only ever once returned for a stay at the same hotel abroad over the years, as there are so many wonderful places to visit in the world. This will change, at least for our Spring holidays, from now on! After the 'non summer' of 2012, followed by the long and miserably wet and cold start to 2013, we desperately decided to seek some sun, but not to a 'long haul' destination. What a gem we happened upon in the shape of the Mogan Playa. All the positives commented upon on Tripadvisor, relating to this lovely hotel, are exact. Gardens, rooms, public areas, staff all tip top. We were totally impressed by the choice and quality of the food at both breakfast and dinner buffets and I should like to comment in particular on the layout of the 'food stations'. Room to browse before choosing and space aplenty to serve yourself. What a joy after the jostling RIUesque 'school dinner lineups' we have experienced at buffet meals in the past. Altogether a holiday to be repeated next spring. Thank you Mogan Playa!

We expected a good 4 star hotel experience. We got a much better than expected, excellent value for money holiday. The room was clean and serviced well, the food was amazing in its range of choice, quality and presentation and the grounds are stunning. Although the hotel was busy it never felt crowded because of the well laid out accommodation blocks and the outdoor facilities. Most staff were friendly and helpful and enhanced the holiday experience. Not only that the hotel is a very short walk to a beautiful, very attractive village and harbour/port area. definitely a place to return to, which is not something we often do!

This excellent four star hotel is a definite cut above most other hotels in this category and delivers outstanding value and wonderful hospitality. The lush gardens are a special treat and there are many amenities including two huge very warm pools. The rooms are well maintained, very comfortable and well equipped. The staff are kind and well trained and do everything they can to help. There is a good balance of all ages and families are well catered for, although it is not a noisy hotel and different activities are sensitively arranged to ensure nobody is disturbed and there is something for everyone. The breakfast is excellent and there is a huge variety of good quality food. The evening food is buffet style in the main restaurant, although there is an a la carte restaurant which I did not try. The dinner was plentiful and appetising. You can walk down to the harbour front in a few minutes and there are pretty bars and restaurants and a clean safe beach. It is not spoilt and there is almost no large scale development which adds to its charm. Previously the downside of that was that Mogan was only reached by a windy road and the journey from the airport was over an hour. Now it is well under the hour, thanks to a new motorway that delivers you within a two or three miles of the door.

We are currently at the Cordial hotel in Puerto Morgan. Situated a short walk to a sheltered sandy beach (golden sand) and in a valley with volcanic cliffs either side, the hotel is packed with friendly, helpful staff. Food is plentiful, high quality and lots of choice. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and immaculately cleaned (lots of staff) they will change the sheets daily if you really want them to. The hotel is apparently full but it doesn't feel like it, there are lots of poolside beds and no shortage of them, buffet :-)buffet style meals are held in two sittings, no problem with queues or choices not available. An a la carte restaurant is available. Around the pools are fantastic botanical gardens which you can explore down towards the beach. The port of Mogan is small but many beach side bars and cafes with sea food the speciality. A large beer is 2 euro and coffee and cake 3 euro. There is evening entertainment, not the most exciting and last nights would not have won x factor but the G and T was excellent. I can't fault this place, there are all ages but it is not noisy, rowdy or disruptive. Great weather, lovely clean pools and all the food and drink you could want. No real night life so if its clubbing you want then look elsewhere. Many people appear to be return visitors, we will probably join them.

Hotel très beau ,personnel adorable,aussi bien à la reception ,qu'au restaurant,les femmes de chambres adorables,tout le monde au petit soin pour vous!Il faut simplement parler anglais /allemand ou espagnol bien sûr car le français est très peu parlé,ça c'est pareil partout aux Canaries! Tout près de l'hotel il y a un supermarché et à environ 500 mètres se trouve Puerto de Mogan,la mer,la marina,des boutiques et des restos les uns après les autres! Ideal pour les familles avec de jeunes enfants,la mer calme sans vagues peu profonde,des aires de jeux un peu partout ,des restos délicieux à petits prix ,pleins de boutiques souvenirs et accessoires de plage et la marina somptueuse ,possibilité de prendre le bateau pour quelques euros à peine pour vous rendre dans les villes voisines Puerto Rico,Arguilegin....mon fils a adoré! Hotel de rêve parsemé dans un immense parc subtropical ,le plus bel hotel que j'ai vu en Europe et j'en ai visité pas mal voyageant régulièrement,2 piscines somptueuses,une calme pour les personnes plus agées cherchant le calme et une plus animée idéale famille ,et de magnifiques jaccuzzis à coté des piscines,mon fils est tombé sous leur charme voulant passer tout son temps dans les bulles! Animation le soir jusqu'à 23h puis hotel très calme la nuit puisque fréquenté essentiellement par des personnes avec jeunes enfants et des personnes retraitées donc pas de cris hurlements ou autres au milieu de la nuit,très appréciable de pouvoir dormir tranquilement! Je recommande ce sompteux hotel à tous ceux qui recherchent le calme ,le soleil la mer dans un endroit attipique et très pittoresque dans un hotel niché dans un jardin luxuriant vraiment sublime! Enfin chambre de courtoisie à disposition lorsque vous quittez l'hotel dans l'après midi et que vous devez liberer la chambre à midi,super appréciable lorsque vous voyager avec de jeunes enfants.... Rien à redire ce fut une semaine de bonheur pour moi et mon petit garçon et même presque 1 an plus tard,toujours pleins de merveilleux souvenirs plein la tête et les albums photos...

From the moment we got into the hotel-arranged taxi, a luxury Merc limo, at the airport, we thought it was going to be good! Thirty-five minutes later, as we checked in, with a complimentary glass of bubbly in our hands, we thought, "It's getting better!" When we were taken to our room and saw the facilities, we thought it couldn't get much better, until we went for lunch! The variety on offer at the buffet astonished us, and the house wine was very palatable after a long journey. At dinner, Christian, the excellent Public Relations Manager, greeted us warmly and showed us to a charmingly located table. The dinner buffet even exceeded the expectations set by lunch!The food was better than at any other hotel we have visited on mainland Spain or the other Canary Islands. We enjoyed a French appetizer, a Chinese starter, an Indian main course and a Spanish dessert. In fact, we have got to go back for at least a month to sample everything that was on offer! I was able to practise my Spanish with our wonderful cleaning lady Ana-Maria, and in fact all the staff could not do enough to make our stay happy and comfortable. I also saved on perfume - the grounds smell so delicious because of the wonderful flowers and plants I decided I just couldn't compete! Finally, I must mention the complimentary wine and fruit left in the room on my birthday. We had a fantastic time. Thank you so much - see you again soon!

After reading numerous reviews and seeing such a good rating, I decided to book it for my wife and I for a one week break in April to see if it really is true what everyone is saying.I can report it is true, We were blown away with this Hotel from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We were greeted with a glass of Cava at a very welcoming reception our bags were taken to our room and from then on the service and quality did not stop until we left. The restaraunt is incredable I have never seen such a choice of foods for breakfast and dinner,very high quality, we were invited to a mangers champagne reception with live canarian music one evening where during his speech to all guests he declared it is of most importance to them that no guest should want for anything and should be totally satisfied, I have never seen this openly declared at a hotel. Will certainly go back here again and would certainly reccommend to anyone.

This is only the second time that my husband and I have written a review but thought it really worthwhile. We stayed at the cordial mogan player for a week from the 13th April and had a throughly lovely holiday. We have travelled a lot and at this time of year just appreciate a relaxing week in the sunshine. Culture and sightseeing are not on the agenda, but we enjoyed a week of excellent service from lovely hardworking staff always helpful and seeming to enjoy the jobs that that they do. Beautifully kept gardens and pools and considering the number of people staying in the hotel the food was perfectly good! Always lots,of choice and constantly replenished. Would recommend this hotel and would certainly return.

My sister and i stayed at the hotel in April, well what can i say the hotel was wonderful, reception staff, the waiters and all the staff are so very friendly nothing was to much trouble, food was amazing my sister and i are gluten and dairy free it wasn't an issue. If i was going to be picky there could have been more choice for dessert for us.......but i suppose thats are fault we never let the hotel know before we arrived. Breakfast was fantastic so much choice. The grounds were beautifully maintained. The pool area was lovely everything about the hotel was fantastic. We can't to go go back there again.
“An Idyllic Hotel in an Idyllic Location”

Where to start? I first visited the enchanting Puerto De Mogan on business in 1995 when all that existed was the old village, the marina (little Venice) and a very rocky beach to the left of the inlet. Subsequent years have seen some considerable development but not to the detriment of the locality which in my opinion has retained a charm that makes it among the best resorts in the Canaries. Furthermore the recently completed motorway link has reduced the 1½ hour travelling time to 30 minutes which is in itself a major bonus. So what of the Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa where I have just returned from ten days of sheer bliss? I have previously rated only two other 4* hotels (St George in Paphos & Grand Hotel Nastro Azzurro, Sorrento) as outstanding and this hotel is up there with them and probably the best of all. I have no desire to go anywhere else in the Canaries now. Initially I struggled to understand the official rating that has been allocated (4*+) as it had all the hallmarks of a quality five star but having visited two 5* establishments in Melonoras during our stay I can understand the differentisl in terms of building facilities, but nothing else. The quality and standard of this hotel can be evidenced by it’s inclusion in Thomson’s 2013 summer A La Carte programme. Rooms I contacted the hotel prior to travel requesting a quiet, top floor room with afternoon sunshine if at all possible. I was allocated a superb room with two French windows, one opening onto a Juliet balcony and another onto a private terrace housing a table and chairs together with two sun loungers. The room itself was spacious with a flat screen TV that received Sky news, BBC1 & BBC2. Unique to the Canaries from my experience. There was a fridge to keep the personal drinks supply cold and a safe deposit box somewhat surprisingly charged out at €2 per day but “c’est la vie”. Needless to say the room was serviced spotlessly on a daily basis and nothing was too much trouble for the maid who despite limited English was always friendly and polite. Facilities The architect responsible for the building of the hotel in my opinion deserves an award for taste and inventiveness. Built into the hillside of the Mogan Valley the design has incorporated a huge Atrium which serves as the fulcrum of the main reception building and which houses a central piano bar positioned above the restaurant and night club which appear to have been cut into the rock face. The restaurant has a conservatory extension surrounded by water and a waterfall and an area within the atrium which gives the appearance of eating in a tropical garden. The extensive site incorporates residential buildings, waterfalls, streams, an ancient archaeological site, two swimming pools, Spa and gardens that resemble a botanical nursery with all the plants identified by labels. Located in the grounds is a small chapel ideally suited to wedding planning with a small piazza outside for additional seating and at the opposite end is a restaurant capable of housing the social reception. Dining I cannot comment on the two restaurants providing lunchtime dining facilities and located near the swimming pools as we stayed on a half board basis and after breakfast, which is served until 10am, lunch was not a requirement. Evening meals are taken in the main buffet restaurant which accommodates two sittings during the times 6pm-7.30pm and 8.30pm-10pm which ensures the provision of fresh food on both sittings. Guests on a half board basis are able to exchange the evening meal for lunch if desired. I have read criticism of the catering by previous contributors and quite frankly cannot believe that anyone could not find any suitable choices from the huge variety of food on offer. On a daily basis the restaurant offers two soups, a wide range and variety of salad dishes, a carvery offering three meats, a griddle producing three fish varieties and a wide range of other dishes served in sources or stir fried. A speciality table serves a daily range of food from different nations which included by way of example fresh Japanese Sushi and Mexican Enchiladas. Needles to say the wide range of main courses are complemented by an equally wide range of deserts. All food was well prepared, served hot and very edible. Drinks are quite expensive in comparison to local bars but not excessive to general hotel prices. As an alternative to the buffet there is the Los Guayres a la carte restaurant located above the main buffet which boasts some prominent gourmet credentials in terms of the chef, the menu offered and the quality of food served. Residents on half board are allowed a €15per person deduction from the final bill. A glass of champagne awaited our arrival at our table as we dined alfresco on a Saturday evening in extremely warm temperatures and the whole experience was excellent. The maître d’hôtel took our order, recommended a quality Rioja that was not on the wine list and attended to every need with the support of his waiting staff. We chose the €42 six course taster menu for what was a special occasion and every course was presented to the highest of standards and tasted thoroughly delicious. I have no hesitation in saying that it lived up to all its self professed platitudes. If Michelin stars were awarded in Gran Canaria I would anticipate this restaurant would be suitably rewarded. Entertainment Not the strongest section of the facilities on offer with some quite basic artistes but they helped to pass an hour on as the very substantial dinner digested. Conclusion I apologise to readers for the length of this review but a hotel of this quality deserves to be properly reflected. If this hotel continues to operate as at present or even continues to develop it cannot fail but to go from strength to strength. It is certainly the Cordial group flagship and having stayed at the Cordial Golf Plaza in Tenerife I have no hesitation in saying that there is no comparison. I cannot wait to return and I am currently exploring the possibility of spending Christmas there this year.

We are just back from an idyllic week in this fabulous hotel.. I can only echo the last few reviews.. Hotel is faultless.. Lots of lush greenery everywhere.. Food is beautiful and accounts for all tastes, be as healthy or as naughty as you like (!) I stayed here with my husband and 3yo son and my 70+ parents and all had a ball, if it is a sun drenched week of fab food and lots of bits to do for all you could not do better. Special mention must go to Claudia and Carlos in kiddies club.. Our son Hugo adored the kiddie disco every night,super fun! I cannot imagine anyone having a bad word to say about this hotel.. We will definitely return. Staff were just amazing, lots of friendly Germans and French staying same time as us which to me was a great sign! ;) all had the same impression as us. The only advice I would have is regarding the shuttle taxi in case you book one ( like we did with a travel package)... It is approx 35 mins by motorway to this resort from airport (which we found out on our return!!) the transfer we booked and paid for took approx 3 hours whilst it dropped off people from other flights .. Up and down hills.. Reversing in and out of car parks.. Dropping off 1/2 people in other resorts.. A bit of a nightmare with a tired 3yo and elderly parents. My advice.. Pay for a taxi!! ;)

We enjoyed our visit to this fabulous hotel so much last year that we decided to return. We were not disappointed. From the friendly 'champagne' check in greeting to the final check out it was a dream holiday. A special mention must be made to Christian - Public Relations Manager - his assistant Alexandria and our waiter Patricio Eduardo who all contributed to making our stay such a pleasant experience.The cleanliness throughout was exceptional - there always seemed to be someone cleaning something somewhere, whether it be in the rooms, gardens, pool, or atrium. I do not know how some trip advisors can criticise the food. The breakfast was superb with such a variety - even sparkling wine was available. The evening meal was even better. Everyday there was something different. There was always a choice of fish (sea bass, hake, sole and swordfish to name but a few). There was a choice of 2 soups, meats (entrecote, fillet beef, lamb, pork, veal, duck and even rabbit) and some superb sweets, pastries and ice creams. The chocolate fountain was to die for. They had themed nights with chinese and mexican foods. Even my mother-in-law ate heartily and that is the best compliment the restaurant could ever have. The new spa was well worth a visit even though it was not cheap. The only criticism I could find, even though it did not directly impact on our group, was that the 'no reserving sun loungers' rule was not observed and as far as i could see not enforced (but if truth be known I did my bit by swapping a few towels around). To summarise:- This hotel has everything. It is ideal for all ages. It has activities for both children and adults. The food has to be seen to be believed. The rooms are spacious and cleaned daily. The balconies can take 6 chairs and 3 round tables. The port is about a 10 minute saunter away and flat which was ideal for the elderly. There is a supermarket only 2 minutes away. The bus station is about a 5 minutes walk. The cabaret / entertainment was a bit hit and miss but we did see one of the best groups for a long while singing motown songs of the 70's. All in all an excellent experience. A must try place.

Having already discovered Mogan, probably the most picturesque resort in the Canaries , we were delighted to see the building of the Cordial Mogan Playa and have now stayed there for the last 7 years, mainly as a couple but also with friends and on one occassion with our grown up children and grandchildren. Perfect for each scenario. Beautiful hotel, great staff, pretty gardens,wonderful location and of course loads of sunshine !Can't fault it, we'll be back next year and hopefully for many more.

We've stayed in a lot of Spanish hotels and this was by far the best. I really don't know why it isn't a 5-star. The staff were great, the food was brilliant and so much choice each day at the buffet that the only problem was choosing what to have. The whole place was kept very clean and the gardens were lovely and extremely well kept. Our room was perfect, we even had enough wardrobe space and that takes a lot of doing. Playa de Mogan must be the best place to stay in Gran Canaria - away from all the endless built-up hotels and apartments in some other parts of this beautiful island. We wouldn't hesitate to go back because we know how good it will be. It could NOT be faulted.

This is a lovely 4 star hotel. Customer service – excellent. Friendly, English speaking, very accommodating. Rooms – comfortable, clean, spacious. I believe some other Tripadvisors have advised requesting a sea-view. I didn’t have this luxury, but was perfectly comfortable in my room (for the little time I spent there). Spa – beautiful, relaxing, though expensive. If you want a basic mani/pedi – there are plenty of local salons which are much much cheaper. Swimming pools – lovely. However be warned, although it is documented in the hotel brochure that reserving sun loungers is not allowed, I observed many people doing this. People put their towels down the night before, came down before breakfast and swapped them for clean towels, disappeared off then reappeared around 11am. Some people therefore secured the best spots at the pool for their entire stay. There are some other sun loungers around in sunny places, but I did find it annoying. Food – excellent buffet breakfast. Half-board meant that there was a buffet evening meal. If you want the earlier setting, you need to specify this clearly early on, maybe prior to arrival, as this sitting seemed to be the most popular. I was also informed that if you preferred to have lunch, this was possible too. However my experience that the breakfast was so plentiful, and you could take a “doggy bag” of fruit and pastries, so you don’t really need lunch if you are having your evening meal in the hotel. I had no complaints about the food, unlike some other Tripadvisors. Activities – there are numerous sporting activities which, as far I could tell from the hotel brochure, are free. I didn’t get involved in many of these, but the aquagym looked fun. Beach – 5 minute walk away. Sun loungers for hire. A lovely walk in the evening to Puerto de Mogan. Lots of things to see and do. I particularly enjoyed watching locals playing dominoes. Entertainment – I thought this was great despite some of the other comments of Tripadvisors. Family-friendly, good fun. Supermarket – 2 minute walk away. I would recommend stocking up on water and soft drinks here. Summary – fantastic relaxing family-friendly hotel.

We visited this hotel in January, and were so impressed that we decided to visit again. Prior to arriving, we e mailed to ask for the same room. On arrival, this request had been obliged and we were pleased to find flowers, fruit and wine in our room. The overall service at this hotel really is first class, and although Mogan offers a wealth of food and tranquility, if you wanted a truly lazy & relaxing break, you wouldn't need to leave the hotel because nothing appears to be too much trouble for the staff. The simple touches, such as every member of staff saying hello, or good morning, the restaurant manager showing care about the service provided, and the constant cleaning are just some of the things that make this place so relaxing. We enjoyed this stay even more than the first and I'd whole heartedly recommend a visit to anyone.

Returned here with my husband after visiting twice with girl friends. He is not a mad keen sun bathing person - however he ( and I ) had a great holiday. The staff are exceptionally helpful and polite and the hotel continues to be kept lovely and clean - with beautiful plants and flowers. The food is lovely - and the choice is vast. We went on some walks over the cove - by the banana plantation. Check it out on Google Earth if you are feeling energetic. If you go with girlfriends - stay on your lounger and drink Sangria - you can press a little buzzer and the waiting staff come to your lounger .

This was our third time back to the hotel. Yet again it was faultless. The staff continue to be so helpful and friendly, the accommodation is kept to a very high standard and I can't recommend it enough. Well worth going on the hotel arranged hotel tour as it takes you behind the scenes of the hotel and you can see how it all runs. Thank you Cordial playa again. We will be back!

We have just returned from our second trip to this excellent hotel. The rooms are spacious and have the facilities that you would expect. I saw a previous review that said that the rooms would have been perfect if there had been tea making facilities; If you ask at reception they will give you a kettle and you have a supermarket next door to the hotel to buy milk etc . The gardens to the hotel are a real feature as is the bird song which you often hear as you walk through them. Given that this is quite a large hotel, the food is to a high standard, especially if you pick the freshly cooked meat and fish dishes. The wine list, which is mainly Spanish is reasonably broad and not bad value. There is a wide range of activities on offer, including various classes, such as Pilates and yoga with a truly excellent instructor, Sarah. There is also some very good cycling on offer, both on road and mountain biking with a local specialist company, In Motion,offering very good guided tours or rental, as you wish. There are some very high end bikes available and as challenging routes as you could wish for. A review would not be a review without one whinge and here that is the high cost of bottled water which is all that is available in the evening at the dinner table but this is a minor irritation.

The motorway has now been extended right through the mountain into Mogan so expect your transfer to be about 35 minutes. What a great start to your holiday. The hotel is as good as ever and one small example illustrates their focus on customer care. During our first breakfast we overheard a Manager having a conversation with a German couple with a small child( both speaking in fluent english I might add!) regarding their child's need for a glutten free diet. It was clear that the Hotel were making serious efforts to accomodate this dietary need and my wife and I could not fail to be impressed by the Manager's helpful attitude. This is the kind of ethos embedded in the organisation. We also noted that that management and staff work alongside eachother in a mutually supportive way which was also impressive. I am not going to add much to the usual list of praises for this brilliant hotel, but I would strongly recommend you try the taster menu at the A La Carte restaurant. Both the service and the food were first class. Mogan continues to be a chilled out and classy resort so my advice, yet again to those of you who have yet to try to Cordial Playa, is simple. Book it! ( Try Monarch for the rooms, we saved at least £70 per person and their were 6 of us travelling) We will make it a 4th visit next year without a doubt.

I am writing this review as I sit in the spa on our last day at the Hotel Cordial Playa. (Using free wifi to do so which works very well everywhere) Like most of the other reviews on here I have to say this really is a gem of a place; The hotel is very clean and welcoming, after arriving here last Saturday afternoon we were welcomed at reception by some very gentle and polite staff who also gave us the customary glass of Cava which was needed after flying Ryanair to get there (sure you all know what I mean if you have had to use the terrible airline). After asking if I could buy a bottle of the Cava, as we had not come all inclusive, they said yes it was 14 euros and once I had agreed to pay they gave it to us for free, suffice to say this set the tone for how good this hotel is! I can recommend this hotel to couples, family's, elders and more as really works well for all from what I can see, we do not have children but they seem very well catered for with various activities. The staff here really make it what it is as they cannot do enough for you, they do not seem to have the word no in their vocab! The food is great, plenty of choice and, while we normally would not go for this 'food hall' type of holiday, it has been really good although we have said when returning we would probably choose B&B (instead of H/B) as we would like to get to the port more and experience different restaurants. Must mention the climate here if you have not been to Gran Canaria before, it's perfect, lovely and hot during the day yet cool enough at night to sleep. Hope this helps.

We are currently staying here with a family of 6 all under 11. I felt it necessary to put a review on ASAP as this has got to be one of he best Hotels and destinations we have ever been to weve dine it all Sandals carribean dubai the lot.. and will be returning in winter. There are really no faults and nothing but great thoughts here. The location the staff the food the pools even other holiday makers are nice people I think this is a real "secret " I'm happy Travel Republic advertise this gem as I would not have found it otherwise. I recommend if you can afford to book "Full Board Plus" we haven't had to spend a penny since arriving all drinks are named eg Pepsi in bottle Shweppes and bottled tropical lager is spot on. The house wines are very good we personally think the Rose is the best. If your booking a holiday Look no further Go For It you will want to return again and again..

Voici un très bon hôtel, assez luxueux (sauf détails) mais en même temps sans prétention. Personnel charmant (en général) et prompt à satisfaire nos demandes. La station de Puerto Mogan est vraiment adorable, nichée dans une petite crique, la mer est belle, plein de bons restaurants bordent le bord de mer... L'hôtel permet aussi de profiter de deux belles piscines, une plus pour le plaisir des enfants, l'autre plus pour les séniors qui souhaitent nager tranquilles... avec des jacuzzi, des cours d'aquagym, yoga, etc. Mini disco super sympa pour les petits loulous le soir, spa pour les mamans, parfait ! La demi-pension est correcte, grand et riche buffet - sans surprise, pas de grande gastronomie, mais produits frais et bons. De plus, pour notre fille intolérante au gluten, c'était très bien, pan cakes ou céréales adaptés le matin, suffisamment de plats sans gluten ou même des pâtes sur demande.... A recommander !

My husband and I stayed for 1 week for our honeymoon at Cordial Mogan Playa. The hotel was just great and beautiful. We had an amazing week! Thanks. This hotel have really all what you need! Beautiful swiming pool area and fantastic garden to relax and have fun! A lot of fun activities all the time, such as aqua gym with instruktor Sara (my favorite), water polo, fitness, yoga, football, cocktail games etc. The hotel offered fun things to do all the time. In the evening they had a mixed variety of entertainment and music acts. The breakfast buffett every morning was great, as was the dinner buffett which we tried a couple of days. Everything with the hotel invites you to relax, enjoy your holiday and participate in fun activities. Thank you Cordial Mogan Playa!

Ma femme et moi avons passé une semaine (du 30 mars au 6 avril) dans ce bel hôtel. Les chambres (standards) sont propres, le buffet de nourriture est de qualité et varié. Il y a quelques animations durant la journée (surtout pour les enfants). Spéciale dédicace à Sara et William que nous avons appréciés. Les animation du soir ne nous ont par contre pas convaincues. Notre objectif était toutefois de nous reposer et de profiter du soleil. Les piscines et les jardins sont très biens. Bref, je recommande cet hôtel. On trouve certes moins cher sur l'île, mais la qualité et les services étaient au rendez-vous.

We stayed at the hotel in late May with children. The four stars are well deserved. The hotel has nice gardens and a good pool area with a children's pool and a shallow area in the main pools. All the services were working (shop, bars, kids club etc.). The restaurants were good with a big selection at the buffets. The standard of food served was good throughout and some excellent local dishes had been prepared. The age clientele was mixed, but perhaps a bit older than in the more lively parts of Gran Canaria. The walk to the beach is short and the beach itself is as nice as it looks in the pictures. It is shallow and sheltered and suitable for children. The Puerto Morgan village an marina are picturesque with many good restaurants and relatively few tacky shops. We will be back there.

We have just come back from a fabulous holiday in the Cordial Mogan Playa. Everything was lovely and very good quality from the staff to the rooms to the gardens, pools and the food in the restaurant. The breakfast buffet was amazing with everything you can think of. The evening buffet was very good too with sole, swordfish and many other lovely things being cooked to order in front of you. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The tips on here for requesting a room helped as we were given what we asked for; a high floor with sun in the afternoon. This was Ok at this time of year, just though, as the terrace would become unbearable with no shade on it. The cocktails and drinks at the bar are very reasonably priced which enabled us to enjoy them!! We would recommend this hotel and we will definitely be going back there next year.

Siamo stati al Cordial Playa con nostra figlia piccola, la prima settimana di marzo 2013. Il tempo non è stato molto bello, infatti abbiamo avuto un giorno di pioggia ed uno di tempo variabile. Per fortuna che abbiamo scelto questo hotel che è davvero accogliente e ti fa stare anche in una giornata senza sole! È posizionato in uno dei posti piu belli del sud della isola, un grazioso paesino con porto e spiaggia che si raggiungono in cinque minuti di cammino lungo una passeggiata pedonale. Nel paese ci sono buoni ristoranti. La spiaggia è pulita e ben organizzata con negozie e ristoranti vicini. Il mare nonostante vicino al paese e chiuso dai moli del porto è pulito, anche se con il fondale di sabbia scura. La struttura è grande ma si ha sempre la sensazione di essere in un posto riservato e tranquillo. Il giardino gropicale è curatissimo e da solo vale una visita. Il personale è molto professionale ed estremamente cortese. La camera è abbastanza spaziosa, arredata con gusto e sempre pulita, tutte hanno terrazzo o giardino. La maggior parte delle stanze affaccia sugli splendidi giardini in cui si sono due piscine magnifiche, calde e pulitissime. La sala ristorante è ampia, affaccia su un laghetto con piante e rocce, il tavolo rimane lo stesso per tutta la settimana. Il primo giorno si sceglie il turno delle 18 o delle 20.30 per la cena. Contesto informale ma comunque distinto per la cena. Buona la qualita del cibo, soprattutto di carni e vedure. La clientela è totalmente nord europea, rarissimi gli italiani, prevalentemente su di età. Comunque si trova anche qualche famiglia e d è disponibile un servizio di baby club con pochi bimbi ben seguiti e la baby dance a ssre alterne. Il silenzio e la quiete sono i punti di forza. Insomma, consigliato cento volte.

This is our 2nd time and we enjoyed it much more than the first. The hotel is spotless and the staff go out of their way to help you. We were half board but swapped our dinner for lunch each day so we could enjoy meals out in the town - this gave us the best of both worlds. We loved the fitness classes with Sarah and Pilates and yoga in beautiful surroundings was perfect. We wanted 5 days of sun, relaxation and fresh fish and we got exactly this.

Once again we have had a wonderful time at this hotel.... our 3rd visit. The hotel grounds are like a botanical garden and beautifully maintained. The hotel rooms are clean and we got as requested the room of our choice. The food is amazing, nothing more could be wanted ! The marina is just a short walk away and what a picturesque place it is. Add to that the weather and you have the perfect holiday. The staff are always very friendly and make you feel special. Their ability to speak good English would help if indeed there was any problem. For those who like a good walk there is a walk up to a banana plantation which takes approx an hour and a half each way......good to use up those extra calories ! We will be back !!

We usually stay in 5 star hotels. I like 5 star hotels and I like the Cordial. It is very well run and we could hardly fault it. If I was looking for something I would say that I do not like the gravel sections around the pool. The rooms are good and very clean. We booked B&B so can only comment on breakfast which was very good. Something for everyone I think and great service. We also tried the Los Guayres restaurant which, while not outstanding, was very good and one of the best if not the best in town.

Wir hatten das Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa ausgewählt wegen der etwas ruhigeren Lage abseits der großen Zentren, welche wir je nach persönlichem Bedürfnis sehr empfehlen können; allerdings halten wir die Anmietung eines Leihwagens für empfehlenswert. Der Empfang am Abend unserer Anreise war ausgesprochen freundlich und professionell; es gab eine ausführliche Einweisung bei einem Getränk nach Wahl. Das Gepäck wurde auf das Zimmer transportiert. Das Parken des Leihwagens erfolgt kostenfrei in der Tiefgarage des Hotels; die Einfahrtstür wird mit dem Zimmerschlüssel bedient. Unser Zimmer machte einen freundlichen, sauberen und gepflegten Eindruck: wir haben keine Schäden oder Gebrauchsspuren entdecken können. Angenehm: Toilette und Bad sind getrennt von einander. Unser Zimmer war im 5. Stockwerk im Block C der Anlage oberhalb des Swimming Pools; sehr ruhig gelegen und nicht durch störende Geräusche beeinträchtigt. Was uns beeindruckt hat war die Tatsache, dass die Anlage trotz ihrer Größe nie überlaufen wirkte; sehr einladend gestaltet mit üppigem Pflanzen- und Blumenschmuck. Der Weg durch die Hotelanlage führt durch die verschiedenen Gebäude direkt zum Hafen Puerto de Mogán, nur wenige Gehminuten entfernt. Wir hatten Halbpension (Frühstück und Abendessen) gebucht; die Qualität würden wir mit gut bis sehr gut und die Auswahl an Speisen als sehr gut bewerten. Allerdings war die Frühstücksauswahl sehr auf englisch sprachiges Publikum zugeschnitten; dennoch war die Qualität und Auswahl gemäß unserer Bedürfnisse ausgesprochen gut. Abendessen wird in 2 Sitzungen angeboten; beim Empfang soll man die frühe oder spätere Essenszeit wählen. Es war allerdings möglich zu dieser Zeit des Jahres (Ende Februar) auch spontan Änderungen bei dem sehr freundlichen und zuvorkommenden Personal vorzunehmen. Das Abendessen war nach unserer Meinung sehr gut, und es gab jeden Abend unterschiedliche Auswahlmöglichkeiten. Nach dem Abendessen gibt es die Möglichkeit in der Bar zu verweilen und einen Espresso o.ä. zu genießen; in dem Lounge Bereich wird man nicht zum Verzehr angehalten, man auch ohne Getränk dem Abendprogramm zuhören. Über den Spa-Bereich können wir keine Aussage machen, da wir diesen nicht benutzt haben. Zusammenfassend können wir das Hotel Cordial Mogán Playa nur empfehlen.

My wife and I have been going to the Cordial Playa at Puerto Mogan for the last 5 years now.We go for either three or four weeks from mid Feb to mid March. Apart from the climate being absolutely marvelous (8 hours of full sun almost every day), we find the hotel to be truly excellent, the gardens are fantastic and so extremely well kept.The staff right through out the hotel are all so cheerful, and most helpful. The standards of the hotel are very high and the thing that you can't help noticing is how spotlessly clean the whole hotel is. The Los Guayres restaurant is a special treat, making a change from the dining room An excellent choice for a break in the winter and we look forward to our next break next February.

This hotel is fantastic! You get a welcome glass of cava on arrival and your bags are taken to your room for you. The staff are superb, they can't do enough for you. This is our third visit and we will be going again next February. We have a six year old and the girls in the kids club are excellent, eve says hello! We met a lovely family, the Foleys from Edinburgh and our kids played together every day. They went into the kids club for two hours in the morning and two ours in the afternoon as well as going to the disco each evening. Anyone that has an complaints must be mad! The food is great, it's a very large buffet restaurant so if you want waiter service then go elsewhere. The hotel has another restaurant with waiter service but we didnt use this. Overall we had a great time with some sunshine in February, what more cold yo want?

The botanical gardens which are all around the hotel are really well looked after. The morale and motivation of the staff is what really distinguishes this hotel. They are all uniformally excellent.

Our second visit to the Cordial Mogan Playa was just as enjoyable as the first, even though we had to pay for this one! Our first visit was almost three years ago, just as the “ ash cloud” which prevented outward travel from UK , had lifted. Then we had actually booked the adjacent Cordial Mogan Valle self catering apartments, but arrived to find them temporarily closed as they took advantage of a paucity of arriving guests in order to carry out maintenance work. As a result we were hived off next door to the Mogan Playa - on complimentary half board - a hardship we managed to endure with good grace!! My wife felt somewhat guilty and always said that we would return at some stage to the hotel and actually pay. Well, following in true Wilson holiday tradition, we arrived in a very heavy downpour which spoiled the first afternoon and evening somewhat, but after that the weather picked up and was what we anticipated for the rest of our week’s stay. We had a room on the second floor of block 7 which received the sun on the balcony from about mid day onwards, and had a minor sea view. The room was kept spotlessly clean by our maid , who managed to purloin us some extra pillows after my wife wrote a pleading note in her best holiday Spanish. Although the hotel has lots of rooms, its architecture & gardens means that you do not feel hemmed in , it has a Moorish feel , built around courtyards with fountains etc . There was a great variety of good quality food available at the ample breakfast buffet, peak flow seemed to be about 9am so avoid this time if you don’t want it to be busy. Window seats in the conservatory at the side of the dining hall tend to be greatly prized We had one incident when, after eating our fruit & cereal starters we wandered off together in search of some eggs /omelettes etc and returned to find two strangers sat merrily munching away in our seats! So we had to move. After that we tended to mark our territory with a book or hat . Evening buffet meal is at an allocated table so it doesn’t matter what time you come in during the sitting slot you have chosen. Whilst we were there the hotel moved both the 1st and 2nd sitting forwards by 30 minutes to make them 1730-1900 and 2000-2130. The food on the evening buffet is of a good quality, and there is lots of freshly cooked meat and fish available as well as a range of other dishes to try. Whether a vegetarian would find it of sufficient variety I am not sure, and those who prefer their veg al dente may be a tad disappointed at times. As a treat we booked Los Guayres ,the a la Carte restaurant, and were impressed with the food and the service. Those on half board get a 15 Euros discount from the cost of the meal. I was tempted by the six course tasting menu which was excellent. There were sufficient sunbeds and umbrellas available around the hotel so there appeared to be only the occasional incident of dawn raids in order to bag favoured beds around the South pool which we tended to use. Puerto Mogan is a very walkable resort on the flat , attracting many day visitors , and on one day there was a painting competition taking place which had attracted artists from all over Spain . It is well served by buses to other resort areas plus local villages in the hills and there are ferries leaving from the Port to go down the coast every 15 minutes , so there are opportunities to get out and about. There were even some “turns” on in the little square near the port during the day, although whether you come to Spain to hear such C&W classics such as “I’m proud to be an Okie from Muscokie” is a matter for conjecture. Overall a very relaxing week : probably ate & drank too much, maybe dozed too much, read some crappy books, got a bit sunburned , walked a bit and laughed a lot. What more can you ask. We will certainly return again to this well run hotel with its attentive management & staff.

Had a fantastic time at this hotel and would definitely return. The rooms were spotless, the food was very good with enough variety to keep myself, my husband and 2 young children happy for the week. The hotel grounds and pool were lovely and it was just a short walk to the picturesque town with the pretty harbour and sandy beach. In short it was everything we wanted for a family holiday in the sun and allowed us to escape from a grey February in the UK for half term week. The only negative was the quality of the kids club which we only used twice as there didn't appear to be much happening apart from one nice young lady doing face painting. I would like to give a special mention to the reception staff, who were fabulous. The baggage handlers were on strike at the airport when we arrived and we got to the hotel late at night with no luggage and 2 crying children (1 of which had just been sick over his only clothes and my husbands!) Happy days! The staff rushed over and wrapped him in towels and then arranged for his clothes to be cleaned. They also found spare clothes for my husband.They were so kind. In addition to this one of the ladies repeatedly phoned the airport and managed to get our luggage delivered to the hotel the next day. Thank you so much. In summary, despite the horrendous journey, we had a fantastic time and can't wait to return next February!

We were so impressed with our previous stay in April, 2012 (when cost of staying was at lowest), that we booked again to stay for two weeks at the end of February, 2013, still in the high season. We were allocated a pool view room with garden & balcony - great! As returning guests we were greeted with a bottle of wine and bowl of fresh fruit in our room, just the sort of customer service we remembered from last time. At our request, reception also arranged for mattress toppers (two for my wife who prefers a much softer bed) to be provided whilst we were at dinner on the first night. The emphasis is on customer service and very high standards of cleanliness and comfort. The gardens were always immaculate and the food was delicious - possibly the one drawback - we both put on weight despite swimming, walking, petanque...There was such a wide selection of beautifully prepared and displayed food that we were tempted to try a little of each, we were never disappointed. Mid way through our second week, we had a very disturbed night's sleep when a couple with two very young children arrived in the room next door and both children cried regularly through the night. We mentioned this to reception and were offered another room in another block for the rest of our stay and also arranged for help with the move. Great service. The new room was even better - two holidays in one. Needless to say we are arranging to return next year.

Gemma T,
First holiday abroad with 7 month old baby, hotel was stunning & location was equally as perfect for us. A level walk to beach, shops & harbour was all very easy for pushchair. Food was first rate, however breakfast was a bit of a free for all at the busy times & staff- whilst pleasant, were certainly a little stretched during these times. The hotel tour was also very interesting to give a behind the scenes look - we were amazed with how efficient & clean it all is. Unfortunately baby came down with tonsillitis on last day, but hotel staff did everything they could to get dr to us & arranged taxis etc... Would recommend for families - as there is plenty to do/or relax for everyone!

My wife and I certainly like the area , not being too crowded and particularly friendly. We had stayed at the Cordial self catering apartments ,next door, for two weeks for the last two years. We had a good look round the hotel and decided to stay there this year, for three weeks from Feb 11 till March 4. The hotel met our expectations perfectly. The rooms were clean and well maintained, the food was excellent and varied and there was entertainment to suit all tastes. We like walking /hiking and there is lots of opportunity and we managed to meet a lot of walkers of many nationalities, some of whom we had met in previous years. It is difficult to make any meaningful criticism and as soon as bookings are open, we will be booking for next year.

Thanks to our neighbour's advice we headed for this hotel in Puerto Mogan & found it perfect! The layout is lovely with beautiful gardens & swimming pools & standards throughout are very high. The food was very good too - we had half board & sadly we were usually too full to try out the seafront cafes & bars! Puerto Mogan is very attractive with a lovely little beach with imported golden sand & a 'lagoon' area for swimming.The marina & port area make for a nice after dinner stroll! We would definitely return - for a longer stay & do some exploring further afield - provided the resort doesn't become 'over developed' this is the Canary Islands at their best!

I've stayed in a lot of very good hotels but this is probably the very best ever. I was there for one week in Feb/March as a solo traveller. Very comfortable, well equipped room with balcony. The gardens, pools and outdoor areas are truly beautiful ,well tended, and of interest to gardeners the plants were labelled. The pools are attended by lifeguards and access was suitable for wheelchairs and the less mobile. I was on a half board basis and the food was served by buffet. At first this can be daunting as particularly breakfast can be a bit frenetic but the staff are so helpful that it soon seems familiar. The choice and quality of food at both breakfast and dinner was truly awesome, even the most picky amongst us could not fail to find something to their liking. Some dishes were outside my experience but the dining staff seemed delighted to tell you what the ingredients were and their country of origin. The in house entertainment was good and there were quality 'sporty' opportunities available - a seemingly endless list, including diving. The holiday is suitable as an active experience but also provides for a quiet rest and relaxation in beautiful surroundings. The hotels' over riding asset is the quality of their staff - they are helpful, kind and obviously trained. The common areas and rooms were very clean, and towels and bed linen changed without request. I have rated the whole holiday as excellent, so good in fact that the first thing I did on return was to book a further three weeks later this year.

Har tillbringat 1o dagar på detta underbara hotell. En fantastiskt vacker anläggning i lummig miljö. Att hotellområdets yta är på nästan 50000 kvadratmeter märks inte. Bra mat med bra service. Bra solstolar och stora gedigna parasoller. Man mår helt enkelt utomordentligt bra att vistas på detta härliga hotell. Förstår att den ligger i topp på Trip Advisor lista. Nära till hamnen. Mycket prisvärt hotell som varmt rekommenderas. Min andra vistelse här och kommer tillbaka nästa år igen.

Chose this hotel after extensive research into Gran Canaria, it just felt right. Prior to arrival I had e-mailed to ask for a high room overlooking the pool. Arrived at 7.20 pm after a longer than average trip from the airport, dropping off at about 15 hotels on the way. First tip invest in a private transfer which takes about 45 minutes. We were greeted at reception by a happy, smiling lady who welcomed us with a glass of champagne. A good start got even better when she had our e-mail request in front of her and allocated just the room we asked for. We asked for 2nd sitting at dinner, 1st is from 6 to 7.30 and second from 8.30 onwards. We were allocated a table but asked to change after the first night because of a draft from a nearby door. No problem at all. The food at the hotel is excellent with plenty of variety, empty dishes were soon replenished and the variety is very good. One minor niggle, sometimes the food was a little on the cool side. However, there is a microwave and a short blast soon heats it up. Breakfast can be a bit manic as no tables are allocated so you have to sort one out for yourself, however, empty tables become available all the time and are re-set quickly. We were not kept waiting at all. There are two pool bars and one that serves a buffet lunch if required. Snacks are available at both bars. Rooms are quite large and comfortably furnished, the bathroom needed a little tlc as some grouting needed replacing, minor problem. They are clean with change of linnen as needed. The grounds of the hotel are extensive, beautiful, well maintained and contain two very large pools. Unfortunately the usual morons get up at 7am to get towels on chairs despite being asked in the room info not to do it. I do wish hotels would remove all towels on chairs before a certain time. Some were reserved at 7.30 and not occupied until the afternoon, completely selfish. There are plenty of beds so you can usually find one at one or other pool. Staff at the hotel are brilliant, nothing is too much trouble and they are always smiling, suggesting a very happy team. Friday evening there is a Managers reception when all managers are present to talk to guests whilst enjoying a complimentary drink. In my experience few senior managers put their heads above the parrapit and expose themselves to the every day complaints of customers, these did and this showed how confident they are in the product they have. The walk into the port/beach area takes about 5/7 minutes. It is a beautiful area with narrow streets, all pedestrianised, containing bars, shops and restaurants. Relax with a drink overlooking the sea. The whole sea front has the same mix of facilities. The beach is golden sand with both chairs/umbrellas and a large area if you want to sit on the sand. Friday there is a huge market which takes over the whole of the village and is great for wandering through. Having spoken to other visitors from other parts of the island who visited the village all agreed it was the most attractive village they visited, this was borne out for us whilst dropping off people at different hotels an our arrival. All in all a great hotel with terrific service and good food. Relaxing and most enjoyable. Would we return? Most definately, Would we reccommend it to others? Most definately

This is our second holiday at this hotel and we had a wonderful two weeks in February. Everything is just perfect - the rooms are comfortable and clean and the grounds and gardens are so quiet and beautifully maintained.The staff are all so very welcoming and helpful and nothing is too much trouble from senior management to junior waiters. Breakfasts can be a little overwhelming when everyone arrives at the same time and is trying to find a table, however a member of staff will soon help you out. We spent most of our days at the beach which is only 10 minutes walk along a very pleasant pedestrian area and were blessed with wall to wall sunshine every day which can't be bad! We plan to return again next year.

Vi åkte i slutet av Februari med 9 personer och hade stora förväntningar eftersom vi redan hade varit där en gång, Rummet låg precis mellan de två poolområderna, och var väldigt fint med hall, sovrum, badrum och egen balkong, maten var väldigt bra, speciellt frukosten, i alla gångar mellan husen och poolerna var det en trädgård med växter och kaktusar, poolerna hade ganska bra temperatur, sängarna i rummen var däremot inte alls bra! Staden utanför är en lugn fiskeby med ett shopping center, strand och en hamn.

Our sixth visit and booked for another! Every year we return to celebrate our wedding anniversary the Staff are friendlier than ever; nothing is too much trouble, their motto being "You're happy, I'm happy!" The grounds are immaculate. The quality of food has improved each year, we now dine in every night at either restaurant. A big thank you in particular to Claudia, Christian, Juana and Henry, extended to everyone who made this holiday such a dream. Added to all this was wall to wall blue, a lovely temperature, a great chill out - heaven revisited!

Vi er lige ved at afslutte en uges ophold med morgenmad på dette fantastiske luksushotel. Det er uden tvivl det flotteste hotel vi nogensinde har boet på. Værelse og ALT er perfekt og vild luksus. Der er 2 kæmpe opvarmede swimmingpools med sand rundt om. En kæmpestor men hyggelig reception med klipper, vandfald og 8 m høje palmer og en morgenmads buffet med mere end ALT hvad hjertet begærer uanset hvilken nation du kommer fra. Der er endda også champagne til morgenmaden! Det er helt sikkert en hotel, som vi meget gerne vil besøge igen hurtigst muligt og byen MOGAN er vildt hyggelig med mange gode restauranter i rimeligt prisleje. Kanon ferie!!!

Nous avons passé une superbe semaine du 17 au 23/02/012! Le temps annoncé était ensoleillé pour 22 degré. En réalité, nous ressentions bien 28-30 degré!!! Le bonheur !! (tout de même 2 jours d'acclimatation nécessaire le temps que le corps s'habitue au changement de température (nous avions 0 degré chez nous en Alsace). L'hôtel est superbe, les chambres spacieuses (avions rajouté un lit pour notre fille). Seul hic c'est que nous n'avions pas un lit double mais 2 lits accollés pour les parents.. Salle de bains spacieuses, tout parfait pour les handicapés! Le buffet est très variés et bon! Chaque soir au menu, des poissons/viandes différents et un repas à thème (chinois, mexicain, ...) Vous gardez la même table tous les soirs pour le dîner, qui est servi en 2 services. Placement libre pour le PDJ. Le personnel est très agréable! Pour les enfants, il y a un mini-club et une mini-disco le soir (il faut absolument manger au 1er service! Un peu tôt pour des vacances, mais que ne ferait-on pas pour nos bambins! Les piscines sont très belles et propres! Les petits cailloux sont bien mieux que du sable qu'on trainerait partout. Ma fille ne s'e, ait pas plainte, au contraire, elle s'imaginait des châteaux de cailloux ;) Pureté de Mogan est très joli, le sable de la plage est super fin et tiède, très agréable. Il y a plein de petits restau sympas. L'idéal est de louer une voiture à l'aéroport. Visites à faire: palmitos park (possibilité de caresser un dauphin pour 20€ et une photo), ou de participer au show des dauphins dès 7 ans. Aller aussi à Maspalomas voir les dunes de sable.. Attention, ça brûle les pieds!!! Vacances géniales, les gens forts sympathiques, ... Nous avons hâte d'y retourner.

We are serial returners to this hotel, among others , but this is probably my favorite. We have lost count how many times we have stayed here since it opened. The manager is absolutely right when he says it has the best weather on the island because it really does. Puerto Mogan's microclimate is fantastic as is Puerto Mogan and it is well worth the longer drive from the airport. For a taxi, pre book before you go. We go for the junior suites because they are 2 storey buildings in the gardens and have a separate room with a sofa bed for a child. When our son was younger, we opted for ground floor rooms with a garden but these are a bit shadier than the first floor rooms which are also quieter. Breakfast for the junior/suites is in a nearby building and much quieter than in the main restaurant. The communal areas are fantastic, the pool is always warmer than anywhere else we have ever stayed in the canaries and the atmosphere is very welcoming and relaxing. I have enjoyed better food in the canaries, however the food is still very good. You choose a table on your first night and keep it for the duration of the holiday which is great and means no rushing to get a good table for dinner as at some hotels. The staff are very helpful and do everything to accommodate your requests. In difficult financial times this is still a safe holiday investment, and the fact so many of the other guests are also serial returners is a reflection of the attentiveness of the management and staff at the hotel. We'll be there again later this year.

We have just returned from our third holiday in this hotel - and we booked our next year's visit before we left! Cordial Mogan Play is exceptional. It is a large hotel capable of accommodating up to one thousand people but due to the clever architectural design it does not appear so. Rooms in nine blocks of varying sizes and heights are positioned in beautifully maintained gardens almost to botanical standard and one can always find a place to sit in privacy and seclusion. Play tennis or squash or bowls, relax in the wonderful spa. Swim in one of the two pools, have some diving lessons, go to the gym or hire a mountain bike. Visit the library or make use of the hotel's wifi. Or do none of those things and just relax and enjoy this stress free environment. There have been some comments about the dinner in recent posts. The selection is huge and it can be sometimes daunting to find one's way around all that is on offer but one soon learns what appeals. What can be so bad abut beef carpaccio to start, pork in mustard sauce with rosti potatoes and ratatouille and crepe suzette to finish - or rare roast beef, or swordfish, or salmon or sole cooked as you wait with a very fresh salad.. Michelin star food it is not but it is excellent buffet food served to large numbers of people. Go to Los Guayres for fine dining and benefit from the discount if you are on half board. We eat well every night and we like our food. But the real stars of this hotel are the people who work there. The management team is always visible and not tucked away in their offices and the staff are wonderfully well trained, professional, competent, friendly and willing to do everything they can to make your holiday a happy one. Book today!

We had halfboard and the food was very nice and there was a lot to choose from. All very well prepared and very nicely displayed. The wine list was very good. All in all my fiancé and I would go back time and time again.

Excellent endroit pour passer des vacances ultra reposante en plein hiver. Nous y avons séjourné fin février pendant une semaine, résultat: 27 degrés à l'ombre...Cet endroit (puerto de Mogan) bénéficie d'un micro climat, en effet nous nous sommes rendus deux fois à Maspalomas , Playa de Ingles (à une heure de route en bus) il y faisait froid , venteux et très nuageux, alors qu'à puerto de Mogan il y faisait magnifique. Il faut dire que l'hôtel est très bien protégé par de formidables plantations exotiques et autour de la piscine c'est un vrai régal de lézarder au soleil dans une ambiance calme et décontractée. Que dire de cet hôtel: il faut prendre une chambre supérieure dans le bloc "bleu", pour le petit déjeuner vous avez accès à l'extérieur, c'est beaucoup plus calme que pour le bloc "orange" et c'est un vrai paradis de pouvoir déjeuner dehors entouré d'une végétation luxuriante avec vue sur la petite chapelle avec un verre de cava rosé (le blanc est plus sucré)à la main, histoire de bien commencer la nouvelle journée de farnienté.. Le buffet du petit déjeuner est excellent et très très varié. Nous avons pris la demi-pension, le buffet du soir est excellent également et très varié, à part les desserts qui le sont beaucoup moins et pas d'une qualité exceptionnelle! mais rassurez-vous, le reste est très bon (pour un hôtel en Espagne entendons-nous bien!) Que dire encore, il faut y aller, c'est une valeure sûre si vous voulez passez un moment très déstressant, vous ressourcer..ne compter pas faire la fête tout les soirs, vers 23 heures il est l'heure d'aller se coucher après une petite animation d'une heure (chanteurs, magicien, ou autre groupe de musique tous d'un bon niveau). Le bonus, les petits déjeuners sont disponibles de 9 heures à midi, encore une fois: pas de stress d'arriver en retard! Il faut se promener le long de la plage et du port de puerto de Mogan, il y a d'innombrables restaurants pour se restaurer, d'ailleurs nous retournerons au Cordial Mogan mais pas en demi-pension, histoire de changer d'air et de découvrir les petits restos du petit port de plaisance. En bref, j'ai déjà séjouné à Ténérife, à Fuerteventura et c'est ici qu'il y a le meilleur hôtel pour se reposer, et j'insiste pour se reposer, pour la fête n'y aller pas! Il y avait également pas mal de jeunes couples ou de papy et mamy avec de jeunes enfants, la piscine est particulièrement adaptées aux enfants (faible profondeur, pente très douce pour y accéder...) mais le bruit des enfants ne nous a pas déranger plus que cela. Nous avons testé le SPA. Il est très beau, encore une fois, le paradis: nous l'avions pour nous, après avoir eu un peeling à l'orange, un cocon au thé vert et un massage relaxant à l'huile essentielle de fruits exotiques ( 90 euros par personne), nous nous sommes reposé au soleil dans de grands relax en forme de feuille, ou de lits à baldaquin entre les divers coussins... Le prix n'est pas donné, mais la prestation est de qualité. En ce qui concerne le personnel: très gentil, serviable, il n'y a jamaiss de problèmes ou d'énervement, leur devise: le client est roi, et il faut qu'il se sente bien durant son séjour. Je peux vous assurer qu'il y sont parvenu, en tout cas en ce qui nous concerne.

We spent a week at this hotel earlier this month. We were initially appalled on approach to see a hideous supermarket dominating the entrance but mercifully this first impression rapidly gave way to delight once we entered this amazing oasis in a fairly arid region. The hotel is huge, luxurious and beautifully and imaginatively built, and furnished. Everywhere you look there are trees and flowers, both inside and outside the hotel. Our room on the top floor overlooking the pool and gardens was excellent, the food was completely amazing. They cater for 1000 guests in two sittings in the evening in the main restaurant (there are 2 more!) and every type of food you could imagine is there (with the sole exception of fresh cream which, in common with other Canarian countries doesn't seem to be used). Lounging around either of the two pools in a joy although as in most other places people are reserving sunbeds from the crack of dawn. We found the further away pool to be a bit better in this respect. The staff were polite and helpful. I asked for a kettle for our room and a mattress topper as the bed was rock solid. Both were immediately provided. The hotel is a ten minute walk from Puerto Mogan.

This is a wonderful holiday hotel: it has everything you could wish for. We stayed as a couple looking for some winter sun and a chance to get some exercise by walking in the mountains but we also just enjoyed meandering round the hotel gardens: it was like a Botanical Garden and also included a small archaeological site. Our room overlooked one of the pools but it was never noisey nor did we hear anything of the live music when it was on. It seemed to me that this place had struck a perfect balance between all the amenities and activities you could wish for: disco; live music; cocktail bars; children's entertainment; pool exercise; spa and wellbeing; games rooms; mountain biking; hiking tours; diving; tennis; squash; bowling and more, but at the same time it was peaceful and relaxing. We stayed B&B but we did eat in the hotel a la carte restaurant one night and the food was excellent. Breakfasts were stunning, there was just everything you could imagine and all excellent quality. There were also copious bottles of Cava to get the day off to a good start :) Staff were truly remarkable, I don't think I've ever stayed in a hotel, business or holiday, where people were so friendly and also where they actually looked as though they were enjoying themselves too - this gave the place a really great atmosphere. Rooms were a good size, I had wanted to book a suite but they had all gone. I was more than happy with the room though when I saw its size. The beds were really comfortable and a special mention for Marlene, our maid, who relalised after our first night that we wanted our bed making up as a double, not twin, and when we came back from breakfast it had been done without us even having to ask. Excellent service.

This will probably be my shortest review yet . Simply put, from the moment we checked in, this hotel did not disappoint . Rooms, pools,lounges, gardens, restaurants, cafes all great but I think that what's special about the Cordial is it's staff. Everyone, from reception personnel to the housekeeping staff, went out of their way to make us feel welcome . It's no wonder that people keep going back. I love Mogan and to stay here is the icing on the cake . Well done Cordial !

El mejor complejo hotelero en el que hemos estado ( y hemos estado en muchos). En primer lugar en Puerto de Mogan hace siempre un clima fantastico y eso hace mucho cuando vas en invierno. Despues el complejo en si con sus magnificas piscinas climatizadas, sus maravillosos jardines y todo un entorno encantador. La gastronomia muy bien cuidada y sobre todo la exquisita atencion de todo el personal, muchas gracias a todos y en particular al maitre gallego, a Diego que nos toco de camarero y a Maria de animacion, encantadora con los niños, todo un acierto tener una animadora española (otros años solo habia dos animadoras extranjeras y con los niños no se entendian). Solo decir que pronto volveremos.

Just back from Gran Canaria after a very relexing week in the Cordial Mogan Playa. The hotel had everything you could want and was really good for a break at this time of year. Puerto Mogan is a very quiet place and perfect for oldies like us. We booked a junior suite which was lovely with a private garden etc only one small point it did not get sun at any time of day but that was the only thing but other then that it was perfect. The buffet for breakfast and dinner offered a great choise. The lace is beautifully kept with lots of things to do. After being in the Canarias before I though I would not ever go back but Puerto de Morgan is well worth a visit.

How can you start different to any other review, the place is brilliant, the staff are first class and polite and friendly, the rooms have all you want and cleaned daily. the buffet has something for everyone, how anyone can complain we have no idea. there is 3 pools with lots of beds, although people do put their towels on them very early and then not use them! and the staff do try, we saw them leaving notes to people asking them not to do this, but to no avail, maybe there should be a new rule, no towels on beds before 11am unless you are sat on them, otherwise your towel will be taken and sun creams books ect put into a box, you then have to pay 2 eruo to get another towel! we all like rules and this would stop the silly behavior, there are enough beds for everyone. This said, it did not detract just how well this hotel is run. Every one of the staff just want to please you, come on how many places can this said about? The restaurant beside the pool is fab, the young lady there brought us the same every morning at 11am, after ordering a cortardo (small coffee) two mornings, she knew this was what was required and brought them without even asking!! thoughtful, there are a lot of people there, but you are treated like you are the only one that matters. Will we be back? YES this is only holiday I have been on where I wasn't ready to come home, another week would have been great, 3 weeks next year, yes please.

Firstly, I do not think there is a more beautiful place in Gran Canaria than Puerto de Mogan and if you want to stay there then the Cordial Mogan Playa is the place to stay. We stayed there at the beginning of February and were not disappointed. The rooms are large and spacious with a wonderful bathroom with shower.The whole hotel is clean and tidy. We stayed half board and both breakfast and evening meals were buffet. Both meals have a large selection of food and I thought of a high standard. Whilst we were there sunbeds around the pools were always available. I am not sure if this will be the case in the summer months. Staff were helpful but unobtrusive. It is just a short walk to the town and beach and both are excellent and you also have a harbour were you have a regular service to Puerto Rica ( a pleasant boat ride to a rather tacky place although the cafes on the beach are quite nice!) I would certainly recommend a stay at Cordial Mogan Playa and hope to return next year.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Cordial Mogan Playa and it is the first time we have returned to the same hotel and location for our Winter Sun holiday; that alone speaks for itself. We were not disappointed. The hotel facilities are maintained to a very high standard. All the staff are polite and helpful. We stayed Half Board again and enjoyed the wide selection of food. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for all ages. Don't go to Puerto Mogan if you want nightlife; it is a delightful peaceful haven and is a great location for relaxation. The motorway extension to Mogan opens in March 2013; we hope that doesn't spoil this idyllic location. We just wish it was only 2hrs away instead of 5hrs; it would be great for a long weekend break to recharge the batteries! We are already planning a return.

Excellent hotel and beautiful little harbour town. Can't speak highly enough of it. Lovely rooms, clean and spacious with views over the gardens or pools. Food was excellent with a great choice. We stayed half board and were not disappointed with the carvery. How many hotel managers take the time to come and say 'thank you' to you on your last night? This is the only one where I've ever experienced that. Their attention to detail is superb. We'll certainly go back and will be highly recommending to all our friends.

This hotel was recommended to us by Mr & Mrs Ian Smith, whilst in a transfer taxi, last year, from Bellapais to Larnaca. What a gem! can't thank you enough if you happen to be looking at this review! Hotel BRILLIANT - best we've ever stayed in - GREAT location, hotel faultless, excellent room, fantastic food, staff, cleanliness - we could go on, but dashing to travel agents to book here again!

This was our third visit to CMP, same time the last three years. Bearing in mind the many people who walk through their doors it's lovely to be met with, "Hi, welcome back!" Needless to say the staff were as excellent as ever, in particular Nerea on reception, who treats everyone like her own family. Ignore the negative comments re the food. With such a big buffet you need to go for a wander first and see what's on offer. We dined differently every time we ate. Fresh food - fish, prawns, rabbit, beef, pork duck, lamb - cooked in front of you, how you like it, cold meats, cold fish dishes, cheeses and with hundreds of side dishes. what's not to like? A vegetarian would not be disappointed here either. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained and the spa is great too. Brilliant location five minutes walk from the charming harbour town, where you'll find excellent restaurants. The service can be quite slow in most of them but you're in Canarian time, relax and go with the flow. The reason it takes time is they're making it fresh for you. All in all a fantastic hotel, great location, and see you next year!

Just returned from a very relaxing week at Hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful food amazing and so many choices. Pool areas immaculate with attentive staff. We had lovely views of the gardens which were a delight to walk through, once we found the gate at the end of the garden, which took only minutes to reach the beach. Will certainly be booking again, thank you for a great week.

We have just returned from a week at this high quality hotel; all the staff are very friendly, going out of their way to greet guests and the smiles are genuine. We wanted to go to Playa de Mogan because compared to other, larger and frenetic Gran Canaria destinations this resort is much quieter, with well-maintained mature plants and trees. There is for example no traffic along the marina front which retains a traditional charm and there are no high rise blocks to spoil the view. Cordial Mogan Playa Hotel provided us with high levels of comfort and services we needed and excels in serving a very wide range of high quality buffet style food, there is also a themed menu on most nights and for something special there is a smaller gourmet restaurant. We enjoyed our walks to the harbour through the hotel's extensive gardens where all the plants are named. We will return!

We spent a 9 days at Cordial Mogan Playa in January 2013, and now I can say that is ideal for a break during winter holidays (especially russian winter holidays-very long and very cold). Everything about the hotel was good (including location). The hotel was very beautiful inside.The gardens were full of exotic trees and flowers and had a little cactus park. Pools were clean but could be some heater. Architecture of the buildings was beautiful and the hotel even had an archaeological zone. Our junior suite was nice and comfortable and we had a sun on a balcony from 1p.m. till 4p.m. The food in the hotel was very delicious and very varied. We had half board and it don't includes the drinks! And that was the only problem, because good dinner needs some wines, but even ordinary wines were very expensive. All the staff were so friendly and helpfull (especially thanks to Monica). So the hotel is a great place for a relaxing holiday

We have just returned from a week at the Cordial Mogan Playa. This is the second year we have been because we enjoyed it so much last year. Nothing has changed it is still superb. The rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The catering is fantastic, you certainly will never go hungry and there is such an amazing selection at every meal to chose from. Despite its capacity to house a large number of people you do not ever feel crowded. The gardens are beautiful and the staff are so friendly and want to help whatever you need. We shall b booking again for next Janaury very shortly.

Just back from a week break at the Cordial. This is one of the best hotels I have experienced in over 60 years of travelling. The staff were exceptionally friendly in all areas of the hotel; facilities are spot on. The buffet dinner was excellent with the widest selection of choice imaginable. Pool area was always clean and well managed. For once I can find no negative aspects to comment upon. I can recommend this to anyone wanting a relaxing break. Top marks Cordial!!!!

Picked this hotel as part of Thomas Cook package. We have stayed in many hotels during our lives but this one is right up there! From the warm welcome from the reception staff (including a glass of Cava), and the exceptional "bellboy" who arranged a choice of two other rooms after we were mistakenly shown to a "smoking" room , the service was top quality! Our room, with private balcony, was bright, clean and spacious. The grounds were like a botanical garden with a number of ponds with tropical fish and even a small aviary with Canaries (what else?) dotted throughout. The swimming pools beautifully clean and there were plenty of semi-private spots to relax on sun beds. The Buffet style restaurant was incredible! Forget "buffet" as we know it, Roast Pork, Half Duck, Roast Beef, Chicken - you name it, it was there! Sushi, Chinese, Italian and of course Spanish, you could not fail to find something you liked. You chose a table on your first evening and that table was guaranteed every evening unless you requested a change. The Restaurant staff could not be more professional - friendly, attentive and always ready to enjoy a laugh but never intrusive. The town with its wealth of restaurants and bars is only a short walk and the Friday market should not be missed.This Hotel is the complete package!

Obwohl das Hotel hauptsächlich von älteren Gästen besucht wurde, fühlten wir uns mit unseren beiden Zwergen sehr wohl! Das Personal und auch alle anderen Spanier sind soooo Kinderfreundlich, dass es eine wahre Freude ist! Die Entfernung zum Strand, sowie zum sehr schönen Hafen (Fische beobachten) war für uns immer ein willkommener Spaziergang! Der Transfer zum Hotel dauerte 40 Minuten und beinhaltete 4 Stops bei etwa 10 Gästen. Das war absolut ok! Der Transfer zum Flughafen beinhaltete 8 Stops bei ca. 50 Gästen und dauerte 2 Stunden... das war etwas anstrengend, vorallem mit kleinen Kindern!

This four star plus hotel was one of the best hotels we've stayed in, on any of the Canary Islands over the last nine visits. Set in magnificent tropical gardens, it is surrounded by exotic trees, shrubs and flowers. There are three swimming pools - a little one for toddlers, and two spacious, heated pools. All are spotlessly clean and well maintained. There are lots of sun beds, and fresh towels are available whenever needed. The public areas of the hotel were very well maintained and had lots of seating. The desk staff were very helpful and extremely friendly and even presented us with a glass of champagne on arrival. We will definitely return this hotel.

We visited this hotel last April '12 and loved it. I worried a bit about going to Gran Canaria for Spring sun as I thought it may be um, how do I say this......overcrowded with English and loud. How wrong can I be. Puerto Mogan is a lovely little town, with lots of character. Hotel Mogan Playa is a well run hotel, with beautiful grounds. The best I have seen anywhere. We did have a room that was high up and facing the top pool near reception that received the evening sun. Lovely to come back and have a glass of wine sitting on the balcony before getting ready for the evening! The reason for the late review is that we have booked again for this May '13 so I have been keeping an eye on the reviews. This is the first time ever in my travelling life that I have returned to the same hotel/place. So that says a lot about how much we enjoyed our visit. The food......For the size of hotel, we were truly amazed at the fantastic standard and variety. For a buffet we thought it exceptional. In the best of restaurants, there will be something not liked. So if you want roast beef/turkey etc abroad, stay in England! To sum up: Lovely hotel with good size, clean rooms. Smiley, helpful staff. Good food. Entertainment every night if you wish. An attractive resort a short walk away with good restaurants if you fancy a change of scenery. Local bus stop is not far for visiting other locations. (Is next to a little shop where you can buy the wine for the balcony!) After our visit in May I'll put another review on, from the comments I've seen I'm sure it will be just as good. No stars for the Spa, purely because we didn't go in there.

Just spent a week at the Cordial Playa. The staff can't do enough for you, the restaurant and service were superb (although I do agree with a recent review regarding the luke warm coffee at breakfast) the entertainment was good, and the extensive gardens were beautifully kept. And as non-cat lovers, we were pleased to see that the two resident cats had their own feeding station and beds, so they didn't "pester" guests around the pool or bar area! We'll be back!

I stayed here at Christmas 2012, and have booked to go back this year we were so impressed. The overall hotel facilties are marvelous. The staff made us feel very welcome, and may i add were all local people.The food was freshly made ,and served to you, by very friendly staff. The rooms are all stratigically layed out in a village like formation, you dont feel as if you are in such a large hotel. The grounds of the hotel itself are very well kept, and maintained to a very high standard. The swimming pools cater for children and grown ups alike, as there is more than one area to bathe. It was very good value for money and i would highly recommend a visit. I particularly enjoyed all the staff singing christmas carols and handing out champange to us on christmas day, nice personal touch. Feliz navidad.

Just come back from Cordial Mogan Playa for second year. Fantastic hotel . Very quiet resort with lovely harbour area, plenty of restaurants and bars. Lovely beach although we are not beach people. Hotel staff can't do enough for you and any complaints are dealt with straight away. My husbands birthday while we were there and the hotel gave us a bottle of Cava and a happy birthday lettery which was much appreciated. Rooms very good and maid service excellent. Staff remembered us from last year which is quite a feat after all the clients they have during the year. Will definitely go back again. Sophia on breakfast duty fantastic lady and sang happy birthday to my husband with a lovely card and gateau!!!!

Un endroit magique : Mogan Playa et le Port (la "petite Venise"). Un climat exceptionnel (20°-24° à midi, en janvier), plein soleil alors qu'il pleuvait ou ventait sur le reste de Gran Canaria ! Et au milieu des collines de lave, un village-oasis avec son propre "jardin botanique", ses bâtiments isolés ,à taille humaine et de couleurs gaies, des chambres et des services ****, un vrai paradis en hiver ... Bien entendu, le rêve et la beauté ont un prix ... certain, mais justifié par des prestations exceptionnelles. Mais attention : le plus pénible dans un tel séjour, c'est la fin et le retour en Europe continentale, en pleine neige, alors que la veille je me baignais encore dans celle des 2 piscines qui est chauffée à 25 ° en permanence.

This was our second stay here. We spent one week during the Christmas holidays and were just as satisfied with our stay this year as we were last year. Cordial Mogan Playa is a perfect place for relaxing. The staff made us feel very welcome and did all they could to make our stay as comfortable as possible. A special thanks to Nerea at the reception who speaks perfect English and helped us change our room to one with more sun in the afternoon. She also managed to get us a reservation for the New Year’s Gala Dinner at the superb Los Guayres restaurant even though it was fully booked. Great work, Nerea! The hotel is big, but because of the architecture and the many buildings spread round in the wonderful garden, you don’t get the holiday factory feeling that is often very present in other big Gran Canaria hotels. Even though the hotel was full when we were there, the atmosphere was quiet and relaxed. We had half board and enjoyed dinner in the buffet restaurant, but for a change the a la carte restaurant Los Guayres is a great experience. Different entertainment every night and several activities during the day. There is free WIFI in all the rooms, and free parking in the hotel garage. Free pool towels which can be changed every day if needed. There are two big pools with lots of sunbeds with thick and comfortable mattresses. If you prefer the beach, it’s only a five to ten minutes’ walk away. Cordial Mogan Playa is an excellent hotel situated in what is probably the most charming resort on Gran Canaria. We have already started to plan our next stay here.

We have stayed at this hotel in Dec. for the last 4 years and in Jan. last year. The Cordial Mogan Playa is by far the best hotel we have stayed in, and deserves a 5 star rating. The moment you arrive you are greeted with a glass of champagne and made to feel special and welcome. All of the staff are very helpfull and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and the gardens are amazing. If a problem occurs, very rare, it is delt with immediatly. The rooms are spacious and a fridge is provided for your convience. There is a small shop in the hotel which sells souveniers and importantly water and suncream cheaper than the local shops. We hope that we are able to stay at this hotel many times in the future and would not consider any other resort or hotel in Gran Canaria.

This was our first stay at this wonderful hotel, it was amazing, and only 5 minutes walk from the beach and port, the hotel itself was magnificent, the service first class and very friendly, the rooms were spotless, the director even offers a drink to the guests every Friday, our only issue was that the dining room is so big and you have so much choice, is that in the evening it was not always easy to find what we wanted, it took us a few days to get used to, that's why we will be going back again, without doubt but in general amazing, plus we had the sunshine every day. Like to say here thank you to all the staff who helped give us a wonderful holiday.

We stayed at the cordial Mogan Playa for the second time, arriving on January 5th and staying for one week. We are a couple ages 43 and 50, having travelled all over the world, staying in many different hotels. One of our absolute favorite experiences is when viviting Puerto Mogan and the Cordial Mogan Playa. The welcome greeting from staff is always excellent, you feel welcome and relaxed at once. The rooms are cleaned so perfecktly every day, we often had to comment on how clean are roooms where every day. Breakfast is enjoyable and there is absolutly nothing missing, just for you to enjoy all kind s of fruits, eggs, omlette, all kinds of breads, all kinds of cakes, champagne, coffe, tea....the staff is so help ful at all times. We did not have lunch or dinner at the hotel so I can not comment on this. Short way to walk to the harbour and enjoy the lovely Puerto Mogan. We were suprised and really enjoyed the entertainment this time, we saw 4 shows during the week and especially liked - Frequencies (kind of IL-Divo music)and the group from Cape Town(Well know soul music from the sixties) high quality shows at night. We will go back again - next January, it is a trip to pamper yourself! Make sure to bring a sweater as the nights can be quite cold. But sunshine all day long:) No worries, worth a visit if your going to Gran Canaria, you will not be dissappointed.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at this beautiful Hotel after spending 7 nights in a different resort. Our only regret is that we weren't staying longer. It is without doubt the nicest Hotel we have ever stayed in. It's rating is 4* plus - cannot see why it's not a 5 star. We were greeted with a glass of champagne on arrival and a porter took our cases and showed us to our room. The room was lovely - tastefully decorated and equipped with fridge, HAIRDRYER, toiletries, etc... We had a beautiful view overlooking the stunning gardens and pool. The whole hotel is immaculately clean. The common areas are amazing and it was just a case of WOW everywhere we went. We found the food to be excellent with a wide choice and beautifully presented. Just a short stroll to the harbour of Mogan which is so pretty with its winding streets, beautiful flowers and choice of many restaurants and bars, the hotel is ideally situated. Could go on & on but can only conclude by saying this Hotel is extremely ' highly recommended' and that we hope to return there very soon. Just one more thing.......the staff all across the board were very professional, helpful and welcoming & went out of their way to be accommodating to all their guests. If there were to be any down sides ......there were certain times when there was a bit of a drain smell and also the beds could have been firmer.....but really only minor niggles and didn't spoil our holiday .....as previously said the only thing that did that was having to leave!

Un pequeño paraíso enmarcado en la zona más bonita de Gran Canaria, el puerto de Mogan. Lo que más nos ha impresionado es lo atentos que han sido todo el personal del hotel, sobretodo con nuestra pequeña Zoe, o "la muñeca" o "la farola" o "ojazos" como la conocían casi todo el personal del hotel y principalmente del restaurante Tamarona. Las instalaciones impecables, limpieza absoluta en todas las estancias y detalles por todos lados. El jardín tropical, precioso y las piscinas muy buenas y limpias. Nosotros hemos estado en Enero de 2013, con unos 21 grados de media y gracias a la climatización de la piscina, nos hemos podido bañar razonablemente bien a media mañana. De toda nuestra estancia solo un pequeño pero, la rigidez en los horarios de restaurante y de zonas comunes como las boleras, los cuales están más dirigidos al huésped foráneo (inglés o alemán) con unos horarios más "tempraneros". Pero esto para nada empaña nuestra maravillosa estancia en este pequeño paraíso. Gracias en especial a todo el personal del restaurante Tamarona, nos habéis hecho pasar una estancia inolvidable.

We stayed at this hotel for the last week in July and first week in August 2012 and had a wonderful holiday. The hotel is beautiful and the gardens are stunning. It was lovely to be able to sit on a sunbed in such lovely surroundings. The ages of people staying, ranged from babies to great grandparents. As we have 2 teenage daughters, I was a little concerned that they may be bored, but they made lots of friends and had a great time. The water polo was the highlight for them and did get rather competitive at times, but was a great hit! The staff were very helpful, and the hotel and grounds were extremely clean. We had requested rooms overlooking a pool, which I know they cannot always managed, but the reception staff were very accommodating and managed to get us moved after one night. We also took advantage of the great classes offered by the pool - from yoga & meditation to aqua aerobics! The buffet dining room was large and offered a great variety of food. Towards the end of holiday it did start to get a busy at meal times, and the level of greed shown by some people shocked me. I will never understand why people pile their plates so high with food, and then just leave it. The staff were constantly re-filling, so there was no reason for it. It was a little off-putting, but not the hotels fault at all. As we were leaving, getting a sunbed started to become an issue for some people. The towel reservation system started to come into effect!! Having said that, we never had an issue getting a bed. If you couldn't find one, the pool attendants were on hand to help you. I think it was more for people who wanted to be right on the poolside. Sat away from the edge, in amongst the lovely gardens was often more peaceful anyway. Mogan itself is very picturesque, but quiet. It is not the place to go if you want a wild holiday. It was lovely and relaxing and a good base to explore the rest of the island.There are some lovely shops and restaurants. One thing we did notice was that the exact same items in shops in Playa des Ingles, were a lot cheaper in Mogan. We used the bus service and the boats that left from the harbour, and were very efficient. We would definitely go back to this hotel again, and have no problem recommending it to others.

In December 2012 my family and I including two small kids stayed for a week in Cordial Mogan Playa. The hotel was very beautiful inside, and the standard of the rooms we had, was high. There were new entertainment almost every evening in the bar area, a spa department was also available. The pools were very nice. The hotel even had its own church on the property. There weere two nice girls, Alina and Sarita, looking after children and playing with them in a special room for children. These nice young ladies also took part thogether with Santa Claus in a seremony where all chlidren got a litle present. This was very popular. In the hotel there also was a kiosk where I every day could by Norwegian newspaper from the nice girl named Nudia. It was 5 minutes walk to the beautiful senter of Pourto Mogan with a beach. I really enjoid the stay at Cordial Hotel.

The hotel setting is very nice. Our room was clean and there was a cleaning guy coming every day. Every room has a balcony and ours was great to sit and enjoy the view of the mountains and the pool when our little boy was sleeping. There were 2 pools, one for children with music and animation staff. Other is quiet and generally older people were there. We stayed there for Xmas and the New Year and there was a dinner gala for those 2 nights with free drinks. Our 17 months old son enjoyed the mini club and kid's disco. There is a small playground. Puerto de Mogan is 5 mins away if you prefer to walk. Nice beach and harbour, many cafes and restaurants for lunch and dinner. Supermarket in a few mins away to buy water or baby food/nappy. Breakfast staff and buffet were excellent. Every staff loves children and our son received a lot of attention. I definitely go back and recommend it everyone except couples. It wasn't a very romantic place for honeymoon. Especially if you don't like children.

The reviews give an accurate picture of this hotel. My one observation - the pool could have been a few degrees warmer. The staff are excellent, always helpful and with a smile. Plenty of sunbeds near the pool and the Spa was terrific. The weather was excellent and Mogan is an attractive smaller location with some good sea front restaurants. We hope it stays that way for the future as some of the other locations appear very busy and aimed at a hectic nightlife. We took the day trip to the central region, up into the mountains and the clouds - this was very enjoyable, Big Gary giving the running commentary between the 3 people carriers that formed the convoy. It gives a view of life beyond the tourist hotel - but - it can get very cold in the clouds -take multiple bits of clothing ! We also took one of the local 'dolphin viewing trips' from Mogan - we met Big Ronnie on the beachfront selling the tickets - you may want to view the vessel before signing up ! - The trip was good without being spectacular - but we were pleased to reach dry land 5 hours later after hitting some fairly friskie waves ( for landlubbers like us anyway ! ) I think there are better trips available than those available through Big R. We hope to return next year - its a great place to spend the Christmas Hols.

We stayed in the hotel from the 21. December 2012 and a week forward. We really enjoyed our stay. We were impressed with the layout of the hotel, which ensures that children can play freely, while adults can relax away from noise. The rooms were nice, clean and spacious and the staff is very servile and friendly. Breakfast was delicious and elaborate, so definetly worth a try. The hotel grounds are designed as a botanical garden, which makes for a relaxing environment and at the same time ensures some privacy from other guests. The fancy restaurant at the hotel is worth a try as well. Finally, a word about Puerto de Mogan playa and harbour. At the end of the hotel grounds you will find PDM town, which ends to the left with a small lagune and to the right a beautiful harbour with great restaurants and views. Enjoy your stay:)

Wir waren jetzt schon zum sechsten Mal in drei Jahren in dem Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa und sind immer wieder begeistert. Man hat das Gefühl in einem botanischen Garten zu wohnen und nicht in einem großen Hotel. Viele fleißige, hilfsbereite und herzliche Angestellte tragen dazu bei, daß sich die Gäste sehr entspannt wohl fühlen können. Dies beginnt bereits an der sehr professionellen Rezeption. Die freundlichen und kompetenten Mitarbeiter der Rezeption laden die neuen Gäste zu einem kostenlosen Getränk (Sekt, Orangensaft, Wasser) ein, während die notwendigen Formalitäten erledigt werden. Die Zimmer sind großzügig und sehr sauber. Die gesamte Hotelanlage ist sehr gepflegt und bis ins Detail durchdacht. Wir sind rundum zufrieden und freuen uns schon darauf auch im nächsten Jahr wieder Gäste im Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa zu sein. E&R

We have just returned from spending Christmas in this hotel, it was fab and will definitely return the staff at the hotel were outstanding could not do enough for you, We spend 5 night in Gloria Palace in Porto Rico and 5 nights in Morgan the only way I could describe the difference in the hotels is it was going from hell to haven the Gloria Palace which is suppose to be a 4 star was awful the staff were the most rudest people I ever came across the rooms are big an outdated with old carpet in the room, the smell from the room turned my stomach every time I entered the room the T.V. was a old big outdated telly I would not recommend the Gloria Palace to anyone the only thing it have going for it was the view of the sea which was beautiful. On the other hand the Cordial Hotel was out on it own the staff were unbelievable each and every one of them. The Hotel was beautiful from the rooms to the gardens and the reception area to the pools it was a beautiful relaxing break, the port was beautiful picture est with beautiful flowers everywhere and lovely restaurants it is only a small area and would not be suitable for young people looking for night life, we have stayed in 7 different hotels in Gran Canaria area over the past few years and I would rate the Cordial Hotel as the best experience of the all and will return again for a winter break in 2013.

Wir waren jetzt zum fünften mal drei Wochen dort und sind immer noch begeistert. Ein Platz wo man sich wirklich wohlfühlen kann. Man wohnt praktisch in einem botanischen Garten und hat nie das Gefühl in einem grossen Hotel zu sein.Die Anlage ist sehr grosszügig, es gibt was für jeden Geschmack. Alles ist sehr sauber und gepflegt und die beiden grossen Pools ohne Klorgeruch laden zum Schwimmen ein. Das Personal ist einzigartig, immer freundlich, entgegenkommend und hilfsbereit mit einer Herzlichkeit, die man nicht so oft findet. Es ist schwer sich zu trennen, wenn man abreisen muss. Wir sprechen schon von unserem nächsten Besuch dort. Eveline Mair

Just arrived home after a week in the beginning of december, I will once again say it is a fantastic hotel. The staff and the service they give is outstanding. Rooms nice and clean. The breakfast and the buffet at nigth are perfect. But most of all we like the architecture of the hotel, there is always somtething new for your eyes to look at, a new detail you just discover and which surprises you. The same is for the tropical garden, very well kept and again arranged with different plants and flowers. All this gives your eyes something new to look at and gives you good feelings. We will for sure be back in the coming year.

Wanted to celebrate my birthday in sunnier climes, and as my father celebrates a December birthday (he was 79 years young) it seemed a great idea to get away from it all. Delighted that the four of us, myself, partner and parents chose Cordial Mogan Playa. Beautiful Hotel and grounds, with modern and well appointed bedrooms/bathrooms. Staff were very friendly and helpful and appeared to love their work, making it a very fine environment to be within. Everywhere was immaculate, without exception and beautiful to boot! A big thank-you to the General Manager Alberto Pernalete, who organised complimentary ice buckets of fizz to be placed in our bedrooms on our respective birthdays. Must also mention the main restaurant, which supplied varied, well presented tasty food. Especially loved the night time entertainment of the Tenors (our favourite of the week). Would highly recommend this hotel, and can understand why many holidaymakers return to this hotel and resort.

Out of over 35 Spanish holiday hotels we've stayed in over the years, this is easily the best. The rooms, the pool area and the grounds are beautifully looked after and the buffet is excellent. What is also oustanding is the quality of the staff. They are bright, intelligent, knowlegable and helpful - but more than anything they are all clearly happy in their work which creates an atmosphere that pervades the whole hotel and is a credit to the management. Not surprisingly, almost all the guests we've talked to were repeat visitors who to fully intend to keep returning. The many other reviews already describe in detail why the hotel is so well thought of - so this review will provide just a tip for first time visitors. Puerto Mogan is at the furthest point from the airport. This means that a shuttle bus takes a LONG TIME!! On our last trip, the flight arrived at 5.45 in the afternoon, the shuttle bus left the airport at 7.05 and we arrived at the hotel two hours later at at 9.05. This meant dashing in for dinner before the restaurant closed. Had we taken a taxi, we'd have arrived at the hotel at around 7.00, unpacked, showered and had a leisurely evening. The return shuttle involved a 2 o'clock pick up for a 6.45 flight! This was beyond the call of duty so we arranged a taxi for 4 o'clock and were dropped at the airport 39 minutes later. The taxi costs 65euros each way - and is worth every penny.

It was our fourth visit to this hotel and now with children and grandchildren, total 6 adults and 3 children and we stayed in juniorsuites that is the best you can have. If you choose ground floor you do have a little garden and if you take one at the first floor you do have a big balcony in both you have sun chairs. The only negative is that if you are on first floor there is no roof and sometimes ? it rain or the sun is very hot. We do recommend that You don't have half board because there's so many nice restaurants in the village that is only 5 to 10 minutes away. And You should walk up to the mountain besides the village to have a good view of it all and it is a easy walk we met people of all ages. The only negative is that we found the pools colder than earlier but they were not to coold

What a fantastic place. The hotel is top class, the staff were brilliant and it is so, so clean. The hotel and it's neighbouring self-catering villas are the main accomodation in the area (there are some other, smaller places, but very few of them came up online) so we were a bit concerned about being isolated. We were pleasantly surprised though. Not only was there loads to do at the hotel, it was only a short walk (5-mins) to the beach and another couple to the harbour. Both of which had plently of shops, cafe's and restaurants although we enjoyed the food at the hotel so much, we hardly ever ate out. The included dinners were all buffet's but very, very good ones with plenty to chose from. You are allocated you table on your first day and that table is yours for the rest of your trip which I really liked (dinner only, mornings you help yourself to tables) be warned though, gentlemen are asked to wear trousers in the evening. Which I personally tink is a nice touch, but as someone who would often only pack shorts to such a hot place, I was glad to have read the same advice on here previously! We really cannot praise this place enough, the only people we felt it might be a bit unsuitable for is heavy pubbers/clubbers who want a high energy night life. But for most people wanting an enjoyable and relaxing holiday, it is fantastic!

Cosy hotel, far away for a concrete complex, Nice and friendly staff. High quality breakfast, the evening buffet is ok but not more Calm and quiet and perfect for r&r. The Friday market was rather busy and crowded. Not my cup of tea, but I am not much of a shopaholic either.., At the next stay, I will skip the half board and go for the many restaurants in the harbour instead.

My second visit to Cordial Mogan Playa - and this time on my own, I was made to feel very much at home and thoroughly enjoyed my two week stay - the weather was great and the staff were as usual helpful and friendly. A great place to chill out, relax and soak up the sun. Will definately return again next November - such a good time to escape the cold here in the U.K.

Everything you read is true! We traveled (my husband and I) with our 16 month old. We stayed last week in room 9018 (south facing suite). The room has a rather small living room, but nice size bedroom and a great garden with lots of sun, flowers and places to sit. The staff are happy, helpful and fun. They doted over our daughter! The place is simply spotless (and that's by Swiss standards!). I had a really nice massage/wrap at the Spa (highly recommend!). Also recommend renting a car and going to the Palmitos Park in Maspalomas. Definitely worth a trip. The only thing I could possibly wish for is an ocean view/private beach - but I think this would have mad e the trip unaffordable for us (looking at some of the other prices on the Island). The beach is only a five minute walk from the suites and is lovely for little ones. We will absolutely be back!

Esta es la segunda vez que disfrutamos de este fantástico hotel. Como siempre, el personal fue muy atento ante todas nuestras peticiones: mandamos un mail para elegir un tipo de habitación concreta y cuando llegamos lo tenían todo preparado. La comida del restaurante es excelente, las carnes son de gran calidad y cada día hay gran variedad de platos a elegir. A pesar de estar el hotel casi lleno en pleno mes de noviembre no hay problemas para poder coger una buena hamaca en la piscina, incluso si acudes tarde a ella. He estado en muchos hoteles de alto standing en diferentes países, y tengo que reconocer que en este hotel tiene un encanto especial, tanto es así que es la primera vez que hemos querido repetir. Lo recomiendo a todo el mundo.

Returned last week from our first visit to this wonderful hotel. Arrived about 8.30pm and the reception staff could not have been more informative or efficient. There are two sittings for dinner and you can choose which sitting you prefer and are allocated a table for the duration. The range and variety of food available at meal times was amazing, every taste is catered for and was always excellent. There is even a chocolate fountain several times a week at dinner! Our room was on the third floor, spacious with an excellent en suit and balcony, but lacking much of a view due to 2 large palm trees right outside! Excellent range of toiletries provided, you don't need to bring shower gel or soap and usual hotel wall mounted hair dryer. Immaginately designed main building containing bars, main restaurant, a la carte restaurant (pricey) bar with nightly entertainment - free. 2 large pools with plenty of loungers with 3in thick cushions and also lots of umbrellas. Pool towels are also provided. The hotel is set on the edge of the village against a mountainside so that in November when we were there the sun does not get over the ridge to reach the main or lower pool until about 9.30am. The "quiet" pool outside the main building gets the sun about half to three quarters of an hour later. There are lush plantings everywhere and all the plants are labled. A short stroll through the grounds to the back gate takes you to the edge of Puerto Mogan and after two minutes you reach Puerto Mogan beach with restaurants and shops. A minutes further walk takes you to the port and more restaurants and shops and the ferry down the coast. Highly recommended. Would go back again.

Second time in this wonderful hotel. First we got at room with some noise from the street, but when we asked to change, there was no arguing, we soon got a nice quiet room. Very good service, polite and kind staff. Nice pools and this fantastic, huge garden. Short walking through the garden to the charming restaurants by the sea and close to a beautiful mountain for walking or jogging.

My friend and I stayed for 1 week 2-9 November and the hotel exceeded our expectations. All our booking requests were met ie. high floor, south facing quiet room and from the very friendly welcome by Elena to our leaving we just had the best time. Fantastic food, beautiful gardens, great spa treatments, very friendly staff and good choice of exercise sessions throughout day. Loved the architecture of the hotel and how it nestled in the mountains and how the layout felt intimate. Mogan is beautiful and we will certainly return to this hotel. No need to look any further for a holiday in Gran Canaria. A perfect holiday - thank you.

My husband and I stayed here 3rd November for 1 week, half board. We booked via Travel Republic, whom we have booked through previously, and had no problems! and booked our flights with Thomsons who were superb. We were early to check in as travelled by local bus from Maspalomas where we stayed for our 1st week, we were allocated our room on arrival and were able to access it by 2pm which was good, we enjoyed a complimentary cava and orange juice drink on our arrival. The hotel is very plush and has 2 lovely pools, Pool 2 has the activities - e.g meditation, pilates and aqua fit in the pool, and there seems to be more children there, but both pools lovely and never really crowded. The entertainment was hit and miss, and really could be better for such a lovely hotel! There could have been some entertainment around the pool areas at night which there never was, sometimes there was some music in the bar. The shop could have done with being open longer than 4pm in the afternoon. We found the drinks very expensive in the hotel and that the wine wasnt great. We had half board and did the 1st sitting which was 5.30 - 7.30pm, we tended to eat around 6.45 as felt the 2nd sitting was too late for us, and then we could go out and explore afterwards, it was great to walk to the beach area and grab a beer only 1 euro 50 at La Lintern! or pop by the picturesque harbour for a meal or a drink ( we loved it there - and had a beautiful fish dinner at Costa Bella!) We found some places had live music which was great! You can swap your dinner for a lunch which we did, and the lunch is served at pool 2, both pools served meals generally and it was nice to sit and enjoy a beer or two there. The food in the hotel was very good and very varied, I particularly enjoyed the fresh fish cooked while you waited, the buffet was very spread out, but always of good quality. You kept the same table at night, and we had a lovely table in the garden area, which I chose when we arrived when I went to look at the restaurant, my only bug bear is that they seemed to put families with young children out there to dine, and some of them were running around, I dont think it is a hotel for families personally, and think there could maybe a separate sitting for them. Whilst we enjoyed the food in the hotel, it was lovely to eat out too, and everything is so close 5 minutes or so. The supermarket is very close by, and we enjoyed having a gin and tonic on our balcony, the rooms are all air conditioned and have a fridge, we took a kettle,but you could hire one from the hotel and the restaurant were fine if you wanted cups and saucers, It was nice to have a bath and a shower ! On the friday evening, there was a managers cocktail evening and sangria, cava and soft drinks were served in the bar along with canapes, which was a nice touch, and the manager even came round to us at our table at dinner, to wish us a safe journey home and hoped we had enjoyed our holiday. This was our first time in Gran Canaria, and we were very impressed! I can recommend the Friday market, which spreads out round to the other side of the harbour, and a trip on a glass bottom boat, and using the local buses. We also enjoyed staying in Maspalomas, and camel riding.

Another wonderfull stay at the Mogan Playa. Stayed in a junior suite again as the surrounding gardents and being able to take breakfast in the blue building is so worth it. Breakfasts with bucs fizz still a highlight, saw some good acrobatic entertainment in the evenings and the pools still beautifull and not crowded. A new activity (not linked to the hotel) was trying the Spanish game of paddle - a cross between tennis and squash. The courts are opposite the side of the hotel (through the back door by the swimming pool). Only 4 euros for an hour but you have to pay on a card. They will supply bats and ball. Great fun!

This hotel is unique both in size, hospitality, service, activities and food. One of the best hotels in Spain. Absolutely the best breakfast ever tasted. The rooms are quite big with a varanda, large bathroom og a huge bed. There are a number of pools two of which are quite big and both for children and grovn ups. To each pool there is a pool restaurant with light meals and beverages avaliable. Allways enough space for everyone.

We've stayed here for the past 3 years in October and the high standards have been maintained in all areas. There is little doubt that we will return in 2013 for what has become a chill-out week. We experienced rain here for the first time but consider this to be a one off. One piece of advice:- book a taxi from airport to hotel and for the return journey. 40 minutes in air conditioned style whereas our first stay here was done by coach transfer and took 2 hours and 20 minutes.

As others have said this hotel deserves it TripAdvisor rating. This was our first visit to Playa Mogan and the hotel lived up to our expectations. The staff are very helpful, the two pools are lovely, the grounds immaculate, and only a 5 minute walk to the seafront. Yes you do have to choose a sitting for dinner but we were aware of that before we came and had no problem with it. There was an excellent choice of food at both breakfast and dinner and one evening had a chinese theme. For those with children there is a DVD player in the rooms so bring your own for a rainy day or you can rent them free from the hotel shop by leaving a security deposit. Other things to keep the children entertained are kids club, tennis, games arcade, pool, table tennis and of course the mini disco in the evening. There are two good size pools with plenty of sunbeds so we never had a problem getting one at any point during the day. The pool by reception is the quieter one and slightly deeper so tends to attract more adults than kids. The other pool is at the bottom end of the hotel grounds by the restaurant that opens for lunch so attracted more families but still not noisy. Finally rooms were large with twin beds pushed together with room for a put up bed. Also a good size bathrooom to a good standard. We will come back? Yes one day as plenty of other places to visit first. Tip - Dont bring pool towels unless you are going to the beach as the hotel provides them and you can swap them for fresh ones every day.

Just returned from my 5th stay at this hotel. Thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to go again. Food standard was good however possibly a bit limited for vegetarians. The gardens are beautiful having grown considerably since the first trip when they first opened and are very exotic. A new service is a buzzer where you can call for a waitress from your sun lounger round the pool which is very nice. Overall staff very pleasant, decor to a good standard and very clean.

This was our third stay at the hotel and once again we were not disappointed. My husband and I went with my sister and her husband for a chill out week and once again The Cordial Mogan Playa was perfect. All the staff are so friendly, the complex is always spotlessly clean and there was a wide variety if delicious food on offer. We dined at the al a carte restaurant, Los Guayres, where we received faultless service and food. If you want a quiet, peaceful and relaxed holiday then this is the perfect place. Mogan, which is a gentle stroll down the road, is lovely with it's pretty harbour, shops and restaurants and there is a lively market every Friday. We will definitely be returning!

What a super hotel the Cordial Mogan Playa turned out to be, We had a great time from arrival to departure. The 2 swimming pools were excellent with plenty of loungers, sun shades and free towels and quite a few shapy areas when it got too hot. The games organised for children and adults were fun and very well run. The buffet breakfast and dinner were very good with just about everything you could think of on offer. The staff were very friendly and efficient and aways available. The evening entertainment was very varied and enjoyable. The en-suite bedrooms were a good size, well maintained and servised by excellent and efficient staff. We would especially recommend the hotel tour which takes place every Friday. Following a fascinating insight into the hotel management we were taken around the backrooms of the hotel and were given an insight into the operation of many departments, laundry,restaurants, swimming pool and many others. The beach area was a five minute walk away, the beach was clean and well maintained with loungers and sun shades available at very reasonable prices. The port area was interesting with many restaurants and shops to be enjoyed. We travelled to Mogan Playa with Thomson Holidays from Gatwick and found them to be well organised with flights both ways on time. The staff were friendly and aways contactable during our holiday. Simply a great holiday with no complaints.

Just back from our annual visit to this fabulous hotel and the good news is that it is even better than before. Great friendly staff and management, free WI FI in rooms and plenty British TV channels if you need a TV fix. Would recommend to get a full board plus deal which gives you house wine, beer and water with lunch and dinner. Buffet restaurant has great selection of well cooked food but prepare yourself for weight gain when you get home after tackling the breakfast! If you are a couple request a table outside the restaurant or in the conservatory for really nice atmosphere. We always have a couple of visits to the a la Carte Los Guayres which has fabulous gourmet meals. If you are on half or full board you receive a 15 euros per person discount on your bill. The rooms although not ultra modern are comfortable and well furnished with a powerfull shower and hot water. A mini bar is available if required and the room safe is not to expensivePlenty of sun beds at both pools, with one more suitable for small children and has a small playground. All in all this hotel is a great place for couples and families with young children to relax and recharge the batteries. I wouldn't however recommend it for teenagers or young couples as the nightlife in Mogan is restricted to restaurants and one ot two small laid back bars. Thanks to all the staff and Henry for their fabulous service already looking forward to next years visit

Il Cordial ci è piaciuto tantissimo. A cominciare dalla hall bellissima e con personale velocissimo al check in. Giardini meravigliosi con piante provenienti da tutto il mondo una più bella dell'altra . Due piscine favolose con vasche idromassaggio che per 2 giorni non siamo andati al mare per quanto si stava bene. Le camere standard senza essere nulla di eccezionale ci hanno fatto passare comunque una settimana comodissima , carine con un bel terrazzo o giardino , pulitissime e con la lodevole idea di lasciare il frigobar vuoto in modo da potersi comprare le bevande preferite . Unico imperdonabile difetto la endemica mancanza del bidet scoperto in Italia qualche anno fa ma ancora semisconosciuto in quasi tutte le latitudini. Per quanto riguarda la ristorazione il Cordial fa una politica da applauso. Prevede solo la mezza pensione con possibilità di scambiare la cena con il pranzo in modo di favorire la sopravvivenza dei ristoranti e i bar di Puerto de Mogan e non far diventare l'hotel una cattedrale nel deserto. Questa è una cosa molto importante che in Spagna sarebbe ora che fosse molto più diffusa. Ristorazione forse non molto varia ma con ingredienti di buona qualità . Grazie ad una recensione precedente che spiegava che il tavolo assegnato la prima sera diventava definitivo ci siamo assicurati una posizione all'aperto fantastica che ci ha permesso cene piacevolissime . E anche se piuttosto esigenti per la prima volta abbiamo cenato tutte le sere in albergo. Complessivamente consigliatissimo siamo stati benissimo e ci torneremo . Qualche idea per migliorarlo : a posto dei bar alla piscina io metterei 2 ristorantini etnici magari Sushi Bar e Caraibico che funzionino anche per cena in modo da variare l'offerta gastronomica e fare un piccolo sforzo per migliorare le camere. Un discorso a parte merita Puerto De Mogan. Bellissima . Una piccola Venezia con case deliziose ristorantini negozi carini . Sembra Porto Cervo ripensata nel 2010. Eravamo entusiasti poi abbiamo visto il mare.... E' Incredibile . Ma come si fa a distruggere un posto così bello fra l'altro su un isola non con il porto come suggerisce qualche recensione precedente ma con uno scarico a mare che raccoglie tutta..... Mogan . Censuratemi ma poi affacciatevi dal romantico ponte a fianco alla spiaggia.... Noleggiate una Seat . Playa De Anfi Playa Des Amadores o le dune di Maspalomas . Non sarà Formentera ma ad Ottobre e Novembre ( la stagione migliore secondo noi per le Canarie ) vale davvero la pena.

We recently stayed here and really liked it, the staff was very accommodating and the place was clean and the grounds beautiful. the walk to the beach is easy and no problems. it's a very relaxing place. they have mattress toppers but the beds still could be a little more softer. we also went to Mogan to get our Open Water Dive Cert at Gran Canaria Dive center located right on the beach. Great place to learn. we are 50 y/o and took the course with our 14 y/o son, the place is fantastic and the water is clear.

Wir haben bereits zum wiederholten Mal unsere Herbstferien in diesem absolut empfehlenswerten Hotel verbracht und werden auf jeden Fall im kommenden Jahr hierhin zurückkehren! Abgesehen von der wunderschönen Gartenanlage, den tollen Pools und den reichhaltigen Büffets verfügt das Cordial Mogán Playa über ein ausgesprochen nettes und herzliches Animations-Team, was vor allem für Familien mit kleineren Kindern ein herausragender Pluspunkt ist!

Prima hotel, mooie tuin, goed zwembad en ligt in leuke omgeving. We zaten er half pension. Leker eten, misschien te veel eus en uets te weinig variatie. Thema avonden? Vriendelijke mensen. De mgeing is prima, wij hebben half zwembad, half aan het trand gezeten. Helaas geen 2 pers bedden. Een aanrader.

Spent two nights at the Cordial Mogan Playa after a week in a timeshare in Maspalomas. This hotel is simply stunning and is as good a destination resort as I have seen anywhere in the world....and I have traveled a lot. Elegant luxury in a beautifully landscaped setting. Even the plants in the garden are labeled!! Guests are mainly English and German with a number of Scandanavians. Staff are attentive and communicate effectively in English. Really enjoyed the weekly Wednesday afternoon Staff versus Guests friendly tennis tournament and have the T-shirt to prove it! Buffet food, both breakfast and dinner, was excellent with a wide variety of choice although the large number of guests did create some congestion. Double beds are made up as two side-by-side singles (only suitable for couples going through a bad spell) but on request they will quickly re-sheet the bed as a double. For those with evening flights, and subject to availability, late checkout until 6:00pm for only 30 EU is possible. This is great value and effectively added another day to our stay. Be warned that the in-room safe will stop working at noon. Free in-room wifi runs a bit slow at peak periods but sitting on the balcony or near a window was a big help. Mogan Playa has its own charm. I hope that they never allow anyone to open a night club there. Numerous small restaurants provide a pleasant change to the hotel's catering. For us this is now the only place to stay in all of Gran Canaria and we hope to return for a longer stay one day.

Hotel is very impressive, very clean and very friendly. The staff are excellent. Food is good quality and varied. The entertainment provided is good and children are well catered for. I don't think I would go full board as its nice to go out now and again. They allow you to change dinner for lunch a couple of times which is ideal. Will definatelty return.

Dette hotellet kan virkelig anbefales! Vi er en meget reisevant familie, som har bodd på mange flotte hoteller, men dette hotellet hadde det "lille" ekstra. Ved innsjekking ble vi møtt av noen flotte ansatte, som virkelig kunne service. Har vel sjelden følt oss så velkommne. Da vi er en familie på 4 hadde vi to rom med dør i mellom, veldig greit. Rommene er godt vedlikeholdt med fine bad. Det er to flotte basseng og deilige solsenger. Servering ved solsengene, for de som ønsker det. Hyggelig bar/restaurant ved begge bassengene. Flott spa. Vi hadde frokost og middag inkl. i prisen. Maten er nydelig. Variert og stort buffet med alt man kan ønske seg. Servicen på hotellet er den beste vi har opplevd, imponert over de ansatte: ) Vi gleder oss til å reise tilbake!!!

We travelled to Gran Canaria 15th September arrving late in the evening, following what felt like a really long transfer. This would be my 1st tip - book a private transfer or taxi rather than a communal transfer; the last thing you want is a tour of gran canaria in the dark following a long day travelling. When we arrived, dinner was just finishing so they guy on reception said for us to go down to get something to eat and drink and he'd sort everything out and come up when we are ready. The dinning hall is large with a wide variery of choice that should cater for everyone unless you are looking for a gourmet meal; if that's the case you can book a table in the hotel's a la carte restaurant and receive 15e discount per person - great foof and great wine selection. The food in the main area is good, but can become a little repetetive, so we exchanged are evening meal for lunch and eat out most nights. This seemed a good idea, as the hotel is only 10 minutes from all the restaurants in the village. As we had a junior suite, we had a seperate restaurant by one of the pools; a 30 second walk from our suite made ideal first thing in the morning. From what we were told by some guest, the main restaurant at breakfast can be a bit hectic. There is a good choice with a happy chef who will cook omlettes, eggs how you want, cook your bacon as crisp as you like. The hotle is spotless and set in idillic gardens with great pools. We could always find a sun lounger and the days' we spent by the pool were very relaxing - even when they played the hotel song. Playa de Mogan is a very small resort; we stayed onlyone week and decided we wanted to chill rather than explore - this was enough. If we were staying longer a few trips would have been needed, just for a change of scene. The "playa" and old town are full of restaurants, where you should find somewhere to suite your tastes. We would go back to this hotel as it is well situated, freindly, not loud, clean, great pools and flexible so you can enjoy the town as well.

This was me and my husband's second visit to this hotel in the last 2 years and it was as excellent as the first, if not better. Hotel grounds, service, restaurant cannot be faulted. Puerto Mogan harbour is beautiful and peaceful. No night life just bars and restaurants. We requested a particular room and got it so we were very pleased. Room has small fridge for keeping drinks etc cold. No brewing facilities at hotel, so we took travel kettle and plastic mugs which sufficed. Book this hotel you will not be disappointed. Please feel free to ask any questions.

We have just spent three marvellous weeks on a half board basis at this amazing hotel. It was our second visit, so we were able to make full use of our Cordial Club card, which entitled us to 10% off the extra food and drinks we purchased during the day at the various bars. Well worth applying for one. It also helped ensure our room request was granted: we were in block 7 on the second floor, with a splendid view of the lower pool and even a glimpse of the sea over the rooftops of the picturesque port area. Sun on our balcony all day! It is worth contacting the hotel a week or so before your arrival to have the best chance of obtaining the sort of room you would like. We took advantage of the facility to swap the evening meal for lunch on two occasions, choosing both times to eat at the magnificent Casito Mediterraneo restaurant down by the marina – truly superb food and service. We also ate at the hotel's A la carte restaurant, Los Guayres, one evening - excellent cuisine, highly recommended. For our breakfasts and evening buffets we sat out on the terrace area – very relaxing. You can ask to change tables, if you are not satisfied with your original allocated spot. As with everything else, the staff are prepared to bend over backwards to meet your wishes. Any problems, report them immediately, and within a matter of minutes something will be done to resolve them. We had an initial issue with our safe, but all was sorted within half an hour by the two technicians who arrived very promptly. Yes, you can single out the odd feature that could perhaps be improved, but the overall experience is overwhelmingly positive. We will almost certainly return for a third visit soon. It has become our favourite place to relax and chill out.

Vemund G,
Andre gang vi var på Cordial. Denne gangen i oktober. Temperaturen lå rundt 30 grader og sol hver dag. Servicen på hotellet er fenomenal i alle ledd,fra rengjøring,resepsjon og oppvartere i frokostrestauranten og La Fula. Hotellet ligger i en passelig promenadetur til den sjarmerende fiskelandsbyen Mogan

Like an oasis in the desert! The brochure & website do not do justice to this hotel - the setting is beautiful - The rooms are fine - and the food in the restaurant is very good. We rarely had to queue, but it was worth it for the freshly cooked steaks and fish. This is a 4* hotel offering excellent value for money - very impressive

We choose this hotel in part from the TA reviews and it didn't disappoint. We are 3 couples in our 50's and spent much of the time just chilling in the immaculately kept grounds. The public area's are all very clean, smart and well maintained butthe grounds were particularly impressive. We found the restaurant system ok, you can flex between the early and late sittings if you tell the restaurant manager and the total buffet had decent quality food with a huge variety. Staff were universally happy and helpful. Booze prices reasonable, beer 3.7 euro's for 0.4litre, wine around 18 euro' for decent bottle. It is a 5 minute walk to a very cute but busy marina area and there is a SPAR nearby if you want additional provisions. All in all, a very good choice for some winter sun. And definitely the prettiest cove on then island. Only negative point was the bloody annoying habit of having to reserve sun beds early on to get a group together. Should be banned!

Absolutely beautiful hotel, the grounds are fantastic, staff do friendly and helpful. We upgraded to a junior suite which although lovely room spotlessly clean as was everything in the hotel the problem was we were in 9013 and it was quite dark, with only been there for a week we didn't say anything but if we had been staying for 2 weeks we would of asked to be changed and from speaking to a couple at the hotel they asked to be changed and they were given another room straight away. I cannot praise this hotel enough, in actual fact we had booked to go to Mexico for the 6 th time next year as we love it and didn't think we could find anywhere we would love as much, it we have that is why we have cancelled Mexico and transferred it to the cordial moganplaya for next September. We also love the area of puerto mogan it is lovely, there is no pressure when you are walking round to go into bars or restaurants, no time share reps coming up to you. We were half board in the hotel so we diidnt eat out it what we seen of the food that was served it looked lovely and really ample portions especially in a bar/restuarant called the Zoo, and the staff were lovely with 1 of the girls coming from my area which was nice. I could go on and on about the hotel and the area. But if you read all other reviews they all agree with me. If anyone does find anything well all I can say they must be very very hard to Please.

We stayed here from 13th - 20th September 2012, and from the moment we arrived the quality, service and hospitality were exceptional. Having arrived at 9.30pm, we expected a 'plated up' salad, however we were greeted with a glass of cava on checking in followed by our evening meal in the restaurant! Our room in Block A Level 3 was perfect, overlooking the beautiful gardens and one of the pools - lovely to sit out in the evenings listening to the singer in the pool bar and watching the sun go down with a G & T! We booked Full Board Plus, which was exceptional value. The quality and selection of food at all meal times was excellent. We were always able to have a lazy long lunch, out of the strong sun, with a bottle of wine sitting out on one of the restaurant terraces. At the evening meal you were allocated a table for the full stay of your holiday - this was really good as you got to know the people around you and the waiting staff always knew who to expect, what your drinks order would be, and had a chat about your day. As other reviewers have said, the grounds at this hotel are outstanding - the gardens are so beautiful and very well maintained. Sunbed availability was never a problem, there was no need to get up early at this hotel - and the lovely thick mattresses made them so comfortable. Access to the resort of Puerto Mogan is only a five minute walk. The resort is lovely and uncommercialised, a lovely safe beach at one side and 'little Venice' at the other. The only possible negatives here is that they have made 'beach' areas around the pools with very coarse grit like sand - this becomes very hot and is difficult to walk on and does end up being trailed into the pools! Also I would advise a taxi transfer rather than the bus that comes as part of your holiday package. The resort is not that far from the airport but on the transfer bus there are many drop offs in Puerto Rico, Taurito and Amadores which prolongs the journey on very narrow twisting roads!! We will definitely be returning to this hotel and have recommended it to many others!!

What can I say , great place to stay food is fantastic room is clean and all you could ask for, all the staff are great and always helpful, it happened that it was my birthday today and when returning to my room the hotel had laid on a bottle of champagne. The resort is also great with some lovely places to eat, if your looking for a break you need look no more.

Having read several of the other reviews, all can do is endorse their comments.It is a truly astounding setting beautiful, quiet and peaceful . The gardens are superbly laid out. Each plant whether bush , shrub, tree or cactus has an ID plaque with it's botanical name. Our room ,in block 7 of 9, was clean and spacious. The staff are brilliant. Every member of staff we met was helpful, friendly and efficient. I cannot think of a single negative comment. Ideal if you want a restful break in a superb setting

The hotel is stunning, from the atrium style reception with glass lifts to the magnificent tropical gardens. The rooms are comfortable and very clean and of a reasonable size. As far as the food is concerned......Breakfast has an enormous choice of cooked food as well a an excellent selection of breads and pastries. Lunch is served in the Blue building and is adequate especially the fresh cooked fish. Dinner is also very good with something for everyone, especially the roasts, grills and fresh fish. We were on full board plus which meant wine, beer or soft drinks with lunch and dinner a good choice. We also had a meal in the Guayres and even though had a surcharge it was well worth it. To end the day the evening entertainment and the bars were first class. Will definitely return.

After two years of illness my husband and I wanted a holiday in a peaceful, picturesque resort, a first class hotel and guaranteed sun! We were certainly not disappointed. We chose the hotel mainly through reading the many reviews on TripAdvisor. It is well worth reading as many of these as you can if you are considering the hotel. I found out a great deal of useful information and it prepared me well for our two week holiday. I e-mailed the hotel with a room request and received a prompt reply stating that they would do their utmost to fulfil the request. We were delighted when shown to our room that it was exactly what we had hoped for. We found that the staff, from being greeted by a porter as our taxi arrived right up to the receptionist who checked us out, were friendly, helpful and professional. The hotel is beautifully designed both inside and out. We were more than happy with our large, comfortable room.The fridge provided was very welcome and well-used, but it certainly didn't stop us using the bars in the hotel. We loved the well-cared for gardens and all the amenities the hotel has to offer and its location in Puerto de Mogan is ideal. We went on the hotel tour on the first Friday of our holiday. It was very informative and Jens was enthusiastic and entertaining. We had booked half board and chose the second sitting for dinner. We enjoyed the entertainment pre-dinner in the Fula bar, especially the amazing singer David Searle who performs each Tuesday and Sunday. He has a repertoire of hundreds of songs and sings in a number of languages. We made a point of going to hear him each time he was there. We loved the breakfasts and for this meal you choose where you want to sit. This was never a problem at whatever time we arrived. In the evening we were allocated a table in a beautiful area just outside the main dining room.This wouldn't suit everyone as it was a long way to go to the varoius buffet stations for our food, but we loved it. We had intended to eat out much more than we did, but because of the table we had we only ate out on two evenings. We are not lovers of hotel buffets but sometimes to get everything else we want we have to put up with it. However, there is plenty of choice and it was never too crowded. On the evenings we ate out we exchanged our dinner for lunch which is taken in the Tamaragua restaurant by the larger pool. This was a lovely experience - very relaxing - and there are tables inside or outside in either the sun or the shade. The only thing we didn't enjoy about the holiday was having to pack up go home, but we are planning to return as soon as we can.
