We had a great time in this hotel, the staff were very helpful & friendly. The facilities were super too...3 pools/kids play areas/lovely food/fab entertainment & the large apartment's/balcony's are fantastic. Only a 15 min walk to the beach area with a Gr8 selection of bars/restaurants to choose from if you wish. We can't wait to go back. I would highly recommend this Hotel :).

Our first stay at Mogan Valle. The apartment was very spacious and comfortable with both the bedroom and large living space having patio doors onto the large balcony. Our accommodation was very welcoming and cosy to come back out after an evening spent down in Puerto Mogan on the waterfront dining in one of the good choice of restaurants available. On a bed or breakfast basis and found the quality / choice of food of a higher standard than some 4 star hotels I have experienced elsehere in the Canaries. The staff are very helpful and indeed 'cordial' which creates a lovely atmosphere. We hired a car to explore the island which you could park freely outside the hotel. Puerto Mogan is a real gem and only 10 minutes walk away with its safe sandy beach, promenade and harbour. Sunny and gently warm in the Xmas week. We personally didn't encounter any of the problems highlighted in some of the more recent reviews although I did request a very comfortable mattress topper and would recommend if you prefer a softer bed (available free on request). It was all splendid from our perspective and would recommend if you are looking for a relaxing and restful holiday in a quiet hotel and location with family or friends.

Our annual visit was just as marvellous as ever. Another home , but in the sun! Staff are lovely, really friendly and helpful, the place is spotless and apartment comfortable. With reliably warm weather it's the place to be to escape a British winter! Great facilities and perfect for couples, or those with young children. Not really for teenagers, as a quiet resort, but perfect for anyone else!

We stayed at Cordial Valle on recommendation from a friend. Went beyond our expectations. If you arrive and feel a bit confused getting to your apartment - It's only initial logistics as it is easy to navigate. The staff are wonderful - from housekeeping to reception. I found them charming, helpful and friendly. Our apartment was comfortable and the kitchen was sufficient for breakfast & lunch! We were on the ground floor, beside the north pool.........couldn't have been better! The food, should you eat in the restaurant, buffet or the adjoining Hotel Cordial Mogan was excellent. There were plenty of activities & entertainment - great fun! The supermarket was 5 min away & in Port Mogan their was a Eurospar! There is a market in Mogan on Fridays! The restaurants are many & excellent & they suit all tastes & budgets. Would we go back? In a minute. Totally relaxing - no nightclub strips - family friendly - for couples & retirees.

We have booked in December 2014 for our fourth stay at the Cordial Mogan Valle. We have been very happy with the accommodation on each of our previous visits. The accommodation is spacious with a well equipped kitchen for self-catering, good living and sleeping rooms, large bathroom and terraces ranging from very large to large in our experience. All the staff are welcoming, friendly and courteous with particular mention of the Reception Team and cleaners. The Reception staff are informative about services offered in the complex and the local and wider area and are always available and friendly. We love Puerto de Mogan and would return anyway. There are other accommodation sites which we have investigated and look good but we would have to say that the Cordial Mogan Valle offers really good value. The site is a little way back from the harbour/marina but that suits us fine as we like the 15 minute stroll each time and enjoy returning to our base. We do enjoy the harbour and eat out on occasion but we have to say that we like self-catering as well and love the large and well stocked Super-Dino supermarket opposite. We would highly recommend Puerto de Mogan and the Cordial Mogan Valle accommodation and will continue to visit both in the future.

Un Viajero de Expedia,
Rundum die Beste Wahl bezüglich Ort und Hotel. 10 Minuten Laufen stört uns gar nicht. Den Touri-Restaurants sind wir aus dem Weg gegangen, haben schön landestypisch gegessen, auch im Ort Mogan 7km landeinwärts!! Es lohnt sich die Insel anzusehen und in den Bergen zu wandern. Auch Las Palmas Altstadt ist einen Ausflug wert. Der Ort ist traumhaft, nicht überlaufen und vor allem nicht zugebaut mit Hotels und Beton. Hoffentlich bleibt das so. Absolut störend war die Tranferzeit vom Flughafen von über 2 Stunden. 9:00 gelandet 12:30 im Hotel - FLOP liebe Reisegesellschaft!! 60 km mit dem Auto max. 35 min. Da lohnt sich ein Mietwagen.

Had a great week's stay here. Apartments great size - balcony lovely & big. The service in the restaurant was amazing - all the staff were amazing. They all worked so hard and always were friendly & always smiling. I would recommend this place. It was spotless. We moved onto a 5* Star Hotel in another area about 15 mins away. Cordial Mogan Valle was far better - I would def recommend it and plan to go back again in September

Très beau appartement, pratique à 10 minutes à pied de la plage, facile d'accés et de se garer. Le service y est très bon, beaucoup de jeux pour les enfants. Les 3 piscines sont suffisamment grandes pour ne pas être surpeuplées. Les petits déjeuners sont de très bonnes qualités.

Zijn hier al meerdere keren te gast geweest en alles is opnieuw perfect verlopen. Zeer gedienstig en beleefd personeel. Het eten in het restaurant is zeer gevarieerd, verzorgd, warm en lekker. De appartementen zijn uitstekend en zeer zonnig gelegen en beschikken allemaal over een groot terras.De leefruimtes zijn ideaal van grootte en de ingerichte keuken is compleet. Het verwarmd zwembad is een pluspunt vooral nu in de Winter. Ook een pluspunt is de supermarkt recht tegenover het appartementen complex. Het dorp ligt op wandelafstand en is zeker een aanrader om het te bezoeken. We verbleven er deze keer 4 weken en komen in februari terug voor 6 weken, want beter kun je hier in Puerto de Mogan niet vinden.

Cordial Valle is a fantastic place to stay and offers all you need. Fantastic nice and well located appartements close to one of the most beautiful places in Gran Canaria. Fantastic buffet, aswell breakfast as dinner. Best food we ever experienced in a hotel!!! It was our second stay this year and we have already decided to come back next year. The while staff is friendly but special thanks to the waiters and their chief in the restaurant, never experienced so nice people. If we could give 6 stars, we would.

Our 5th visit was as previous ones great. Warm welcome upon arrival and quick check-in. Clean tidy apartment. Fully equipt kitchen although only one small and one huge saucepan -would be good with a middle sized pan... Comfy matresses. Towels and handtowels for the whole family. Requested cot was there which seemed brand new. Quiet apartment, cant hear neighbours apart from when balcony furniture is being moved around. Decent bar prices. For the kids in the hotel grounds ; kids pool, small playground, bigger playground, kids club pony ride and ballpit. Mini disco 8pm 6 nights week. Fantastic, happy, friendly and helpful staff. Will stay here again and fully recommend.

This is by far and above the best place i have stayed in the Canaries. Mogan is a beautiful place to stay. Quiet and because of the low number of hotels, has a feel of being exclusive and just for you. From little venice to the beach area its clean tidy and welcoming. The Mogan Valle is an excellent group of apartments. Yes the lifts take a bit of getting used to by i thought it made it more fun than anything. We stayed bed and breakfast. The food was superb with a very varied choice. The buffet style breakfast was kept fresh all the time with staff constantly checking that all was ok The room was great with the biggest balcony i've ever seen. The sun lougers on it were a real bonus. If you want quiet try the pool at the top end of the hotel, we never had a problem getting sunbeds or using the pool. Will be going back for sure.

Hoewel voor de 4e keer hier gelogeerd blijft het complex super ! De appartementen zijn in een woord: prima en de service is niet minder. Over het restaurant heb ik geen mening omdat Puerto de Mogan zich bij uitstek leent om de avond in de haven door te brengen en elke avond weer te kunnen genieten wat daar wordt geboden. Cordial Mogan Valle leent zich bij uitstek om de dag joggend of wandelend te beginnen. De zwembaden zijn top ! Kortom: de volgende vakantie zal wel weer Cordial Mogan Valle worden !

Our apartment was spacious, very clean and well equipped. Reception and cleaning staff very helpful and friendly. Whilst being close to a road we experienced no traffic disturbance at all with little noise from adjacent apartments. The place is a bit of a rabbit warren but you quite soon find your way around. We did not use the on site bars and restaurants preferring the comfortable 15 minute walk down a pleasant avenue into the harbour/beach area where you are spoilt for choice for excellent restaurants and bars. Small supermarket on the site doorstep providing whatever a self caterer might need.

Just returned from a weeks holiday at Cordial Mogan Valle apartments. Super apartment, large balcony and extremely well equipt kitchen. Although we were half board plus it was still good to have fridge kettle microwave ect. The staff were all very friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble for them. We were even invited to have cocktails with the Manager. Although it was half term there were not too many children in the South pool and the ones who were there were well behaved. It was also nice not to have loud music blearing out all day. The pool was the coldest I've ever been in but once you'd got over the shock it was bearable. They do heat the pools from November might be an good idea to start in October. Will definatly be returning next year.

Stayed here for a week in September after being recommended it by a friend. We were not disappointed. Our self catering apartment was a good size with fully functional kitchenette, living room area and bedroom with doors out to our extensive balcony (the same size as the inside space). The room was clean and nicely decorated, which made us feel more at home and the balcony was a great space for our 2 year old son to run around on. The sun blinds that can be pulled down on the balcony were great when the sun was at its hottest and you wanted a bit of shade. The kids facilities were good too, we didn't use the kids club but spent a lot of time in the kids pool which at only 30cm deep was perfect for splashing about in. The pool area was busy but at the time we went wasn't so busy that you couldn't get a lounger which was perfect for us. The kids soft play area which is situated by the bar and outside lounge area was good for the little ones especially when it was really hot as it had a canopy over it so was always shaded. We didn't eat any main meals at the hotel (we 'self-catered' a couple of nights) but went down into the port area (less than a 10 minute walk away) the other evenings. The hotel has the supermarket less than 2 minutes away so ideal for self catering too! The town of Mogan itself is lovely, with lots of eateries right on the beach front, and the beach itself being a sheltered lagoon bay made it ideal for wee ones to play and swim. The only recommendation i would make is that if you go with small children request a room that is not on the ground floor but not too high up as the ground floor rooms have access right onto the pool sides and less privacy and the higher you go the more lifts you have to take (as the hotel is built into the cliff side, it requires different lifts to access different areas of the hotel). Would definitely go back and would recommend to others!

It was a pleasure to be in a warm, friendly environment in a lovely situation. The rooms were comfortable and the balcony a pleasure to relax on. The swimming pools, although a little bit chilly, were very welcoming. The grounds were kept extremely well and the staff very friendly and helpful - we will return!!

Great stay, 10-24 October. Previously stayed at the wonderful playa mogan next door, but the size of the private balconies drew us to self catering for the first time. Not disappointed! It was great to be able to totally relax in peace & quiet. Not a long walk to harbour area & some really great restaurants (Taj tandoori on top floor of shopping centre opposite & Calima Italian restaurant lounge overlooking the beach) our particular favourites! Dino supermarket opposite is well-priced for all the basics. Apartments are well equipped, but in high season the fans would not be enough to cool the rooms so prepare to hire aircon if travelling then. We didn't use restaurant nor even any of the bars, so can't comment, but maid service great & reception staff very helpful. All in all, another great holiday - thanks Cordial. Next stop, fuertaventura....!!!

Stayed in the beautiful Cordial Mogan Mogan Valle apartments at the beginning of October this year for 11 nights. Everything about the place is fantastic. Could not find one fault, very clean rooms and perfectly maintained grounds. You have a choice of 3 pools, each of which are lovely, the one at the south of the complex was our favourite as it was quiet. The balcony is so large, includes table and 4 chairs and 2 sun loungers. Even a shower to cool off. Had a 9th floor room (921) which allowed great sunshine and lovely view. No problems with lifts or stairs. There is a supermarket just across the road which has everything that you could want. Beautiful resort and marina with restaurants to suit every taste. Will definitely be returning.

This is a great place to stay if you want a break. Perfect if you dont want the night life crowd staying near you. Lights out on all balconies at 11pm so no worries about crazy guests!! The swimming pools are not heated but this is fine as the two weeks we stayed it was very hot. Loved every minute of it!

Hotel is excellent for young families. We stayed with our 20 month old daughter and it was perfect for us- 3 pools, 2 play areas soft play area, kids disco most evenings, day time activities for older kids. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and made a real effort to make us feel welcome. Food was really good (tasty, varied and child friendly) although I would suggest eating out a couple of nights to avoid getting bored. We went half board so ate breakfast and dinner in hotel and lunch out, there is a supermarket just two minutes walk away so supplies can be bought there if you want to eat on the balcony. The sister hotel located next door is also lovely and there are even more facilities, we went for a look but didn't really use anything there as there was enough to entertain us. Next door to this there is a bike hire place, my husband went off cycling one day and really enjoyed it. I used the spa, it's 7 euros and it was a bargain, there is a hot tub, sauna, steam room, ice room, floating cave and outdoor relaxation area. Don't come in October if you want to bask in the sun on a morning, as the pool and balconies didn't get sun until about 11am. This wasn't a problem for us as we generally try to stay out of the sun but enjoy the warm temperature. It was lovely and warm at this time of year and around the hotel I would say there was sun from around 11am - 6pm. Consider private transfers- we booked with Jet2 and transfer was 1hour 45 mins, taxi takes about 35 mins. There are very mixed reviews on here for this hotel which put doubt in my mind when booking it, I'm so glad I did as for our circumstances it was perfect. I don't normally go to the same place twice but would definitely consider going here again as with kids it's nice to know you've booked a great place

We stayed here for the first time a couple of years ago on the recommendation of a family member and found it such a calm and relaxing place that we vowed we'd return and we did so in September. We certainly weren't disappointed by our second stay either. We booked the holiday this time through JET2 Holidays as this was the most economical way to do it, but made our own arrangements for our transfer to and from the hotel. From our initial reception at the Cordial Valle to our final day and check-out our stay was everything we hoped for. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and found the wealth of choice for breakfast as staggering as last time. All of the food is of a good quality - except for the small croissants which were bland and a bit tasteless, but that's a very small niggle - and staff were constantly replenishing the different foods. We always felt that we'd had a very good start to the day. We didn't eat in the hotel at all apart from breakfast so can't comment on anything else. The sunbeds around the pools were always very busy and although guests are warned not to reserve sunbeds with towels etc., many people still do this and despite what the warning notices say, staff never seem to bother removing the towels and books. Fortunately, this is not a problem for most people as each apartment has at least two sunbeds on the balcony. We didn't cook much in the apartment but the kitchen is reasonably equipped. We chose either to eat out or bring take away meals back to eat out on the balcony. If you like quiet pretty resorts where you can relax then these apartments in Puerto Mogan are ideal. We caught the local bus up to Mas Palomas and enjoyed our day there too, so it's possible to get to other resorts, but we were always happy to be coming back to Puerto Mogan. We won't hesitate to return at some point in the future.

We enjoyed a lovely relaxing week’s holiday at these apartments in September. We chose the complex because of the good reviews it had received and we were not disappointed. Our apartment was very spacious and spotlessly clean. We loved the large balcony with the sun beds where we spent lots of time relaxing and enjoying the view. All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. The resort itself is beautiful with some lovely restaurants but very quiet if you are looking for night life. The centre of the village is about a ten minute walk from the complex along a nice pedestrian walk way. Overall I would recommend these apartments for couples or families with young children.

Stayed here recently (for 2nd time this year) - which speaks for itself. The apartments are clean, of a generous size and fixtures and fittings in good order. Even the showers are good (both of them). The cleaners are excellent, reception staff efficient and courteous and all very friendly. Outside the hotel is a marble walkway down to the square, beach and harbour area, great for a relaxed stroll down to the restaurants- no cars just the odd cyclist or runner. The resort itself is quiet with a good selection of bars and restaurants, nice beach,plenty of loungers. Almost nothing to do for younger holiday makers

Absolutely love the Cordial Mogan Valle Apartments. We received a free glass of champagne on arrival, which wasn't expected and the checking in process was quick and easy. Our apartment was very spacious, clean and well fitted. No air conditioning, but we found the ceiling fans to be enough for the temperature in September. Large balcony with table and four chairs, two sunloungers and even a shower! Blinds to pull down to keep the sun out of the rooms if so desired. Lovely and quiet at night, no rowdy guests, but we did go out of season. My only complaint was the mattress was too firm and made my back ache so mentioned this to reception when we checked out and was told i could have had a mattress topper, so my fault for not saying something sooner. Beautiful relaxing place with friendly staff. Puerto de Mogan is a beautiful, quiet romantic place it has a lovely sandy beach and pretty harbour with lots of little bridges. Great for couples, families and recycled teenagers. Loads of places for eating and drinking, but if you are looking for nightlife and clubbing this isn't for you. Supermarket across from the Cordial and bar next door that does take away pizza, also Spar shop down the road near the bus station. Would recommend the yellow submarine its 29 euros but worth it. Use the local buses they are cheap and regular. Best holiday abroad in a long time, will definitely go back soon.

The Mogan Valle apartments are our second home - we visit 2 -3 times a year. This time we stayed 2 weeks - not been this relaxed for a long time. We are never disappointed with the service, cleanliness and the lovely balconies. The staff are always polite and ensure we have a great stay. The housekeeping is always good - our apartment is always kept clean and linen changes 2 times a week. Can't recommend this place enough.

My wife and I spent two weeks here in September 2013. We have been to Gran Canaria previously and have visited Puerto Mogan to visit the beach. This time we decided to have a hotel in this beautiful spot. What a delight this hotel is. The apartments are clean, bright, well furnished and spacious. The location, a 15 minute walk from Puerto Mogan beach is superb and the whole surrounding area is quiet and 'refined' - not a football shirt in sight anywhere!! Friday market day is busy until mid afternoon but apart from that it is a quiet and upmarket resort. There are a great many positive comments on this site and we would agree with them all. We arrived at the hotel at about 9,30pm and as we had missed dinner we were provided with a very welcome salad in our room. We had only one complaint during our stay and this was resolved very quickly and we were given a bowl of fruit as an apology. It was a very minor matter! Hotel staff are professional and friendly and do appear to care that your stay is a good one. Well done Cordial Mogan Valle - and thank you.

Just home from another lovely holiday at the Cordial Valle in Puerto Mogan. We love staying here. It's comfortable, clean and the balconies are huge. We hired a car this time and had a fantastic day in Las Palmas. Rode on the open top bus hopping on and off when we pleased. Not such a good trip up into the mountains with its narrow roads and sheer drops. Definitely an experience though. Found some lovely beaches too. Restaurants in Puerto Mogan are good and we enjoyed some lovely meals. Our favourite Is La Cicala, an Italian restaurant over looking the beach. We went there five times enjoying delicious pasta dishes. We love it here and will probably be back again next year to recharge our batteries for the winter.

We decided to take to Gran Canaria on the South side of the Island this year, Sept/13, and was probably the best choice of taking Holidays to the Canarias's. We found this hotel to offer a service to a premier level, which included a spacious apartment, spotlessly clean throughout. the staff including the reception team were so helpful and very caring, nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to ensure a guaranteed holiday, compliments also to the hardworking maids, whom I believe looked after the apartments as if it were their own home. Puerto de mogan is a lovely place offering an excellent variety of restaurants supported by a friendly and warm welcome. were going back in January without doubt.

FairWem,
This was our 4th visit in 3years and found it to be as good as usual. Staff very friendly and approachable in all areas of the aparthotel, from the manager downwards. The fact that the staff appear to remember you and treat you like a friend and not a client makes you feel very welcome. If you want a quiet relaxing holiday this is the place to go. The huge balconies are an added bonus. We were half board which was excellent for us but if you only wanted self catering the facilities were good and a couple of well stocked supermarkets were close by. The resort of Mogan was clean and catered for most people looking for a quiet holiday- thankfully no party animals! We will return

Have just returned from our 2nd visit to these apartments. The first was over 3yrs ago and it was as good. We asked for and got a high apartment which we were given which was private and not overlooked. Balcony is brilliant, being so large. The staff are lovely, friendly and helpful. With the supermarket nearby and the resort centre with its restaurants and cafes a stroll away these apartments are ideal.

Instalaciones de buena calidad,nuevos, limpios y amplios. El trato con el personal, muy bueno nos facilitaron todas las comodidades que nos fueran necesarias y sin ningún problema. Las tres piscinas con buen mantenimiento y limpias. El único inconveniente es que los apartamentos no tienen aire acondicionado.En Agosto de 2013 las instalaciones estaban llenas y no se notaba ya que hay espacio suficiente para estar y sin aglomeraciones.

Tried Puerto de Mogan after having endured Puerto Rico in June. Mogan much quieter and the hotel is far better. Within walking distance of the Marina. 3 pools, snack bar, kid's entertainment seem way above average. Great location if you like cycling of the climbing variety. Wheelchair friendly, staff even more so. Classy and relaxing place. I don't do the towel thing, so haven't been bothered by it. I'd be more than happy to come back here. Slight downside is the strange numbering of floors and rooms. Top floors require 3 lifts with walks between. Not a big issue, but unexpected. If you have little children, come here.

Just returned from our 3rd visit to the Cordial Vale apartments, and I am pleased to say it remains just as good. The staff are friendly. The apartments are spacious, very clean and tidy, as is the whole complex.We stay on the top floor and despite the hike it is quiet. We find the pool facilities very clean and tend to stay at the largest pool on the ground floor as our 9 year old son enjoys the space for jumping and diving in. It is also a pleasant,, approx 15 mins walk to the beach front. We liked to dine at one of the harbour restaurants just a further 5 mins walk, as it is such a nice view. The resort is so lovely, it is named the little venice of the canary Islands and you will see why, if you visit. If you are looking for a quiet resort but enough restaurants to choose from and no mosquitos or wasps to contend with then this is the place for you. Overall another very enjoyable family holiday, and we will certainly be going back.

This was our second visit to these apartments and we were not disappointed, Puerto Mogan is such a lovely resort, fairly qiuet but picturesque and with many good restaurants, a safe beach and lovely fishing port and is a 10-15 min walk to centre from cordial Mogan Valle. We asked for an apartment near to the one we had before - we always make note of apartment no.s in case we return - and were given one 2 doors down. This was on the 6th floor. The 3rd, 6th and 9th floors are best because have better balconies and corridor to apartment is open air. Ask for 6th or higher for best views. All staff are very friendly and helpful. Buffet Breakfast good quality and the variety is vast Apartments themselves are spacious and the sofa beds very comfortable Pity there is no air conditioning in rooms but safe to leave doors to balcony open which provides some air along with ceiling fans Swimming pools busy and we did join the sunbed reservers as like spot where can get shade for part of day Rooms clean and towels changed regularly though quality of same varied Great location near well stocked supermarket Daytime entertainment good All in all we had a great holiday and hope to come back again sometime. By far the nicest resort we saw on gran canaria!

Estos apartamentos son maravillosos. Modernos, amplios,comodos,limpios y con una terraza fantanstica provista de ducha para refrescarse !!! Son preciosos en decoracion. Bastante tranquilos. Existen 3 piscinas una dedicada mas a las familias con niños pequeños y las otras dos aunque mas pequeñas son mas tranquilas. Tienen un pequeño Spa muy bien cuidado y las ofertas de masajes es amplia. Las zonas comunes amplias,ajardinadas y limpias. Eso si la habitacion no tiene aire acondicionado pero no es necesario si abres la puerta de la amplia terraza, aunque puedes pedir en recepcion el aparato de aire acondicionado tipo pingüino. El entrono es precioso, Mogán es un municipio precioso,una pequeña venecia. A parte la amabilidad del personal y sobre todo el buen trato de su director!! Gracias .

We stayed here with our 2 boys. 4 and 7 years. Everything was so convenient! The apartment was great and the staff were seriously helpful! We even had 2 phone calls in the apartment asking if we were enjoying our stay! Very cheap supermarket literally across the road, with some beautiful bars and restaurants within walking distance! The place modern, the apartments clean! The pool was spotless! We would definitely go again. If I had to offer any advice it would be to book yourself a private transfer. We used sun transfers it was 100 Euros for a round trip. Brand new Mercedes, with air con! 30 mins to and from the airport! We will be back x

We really enjoyed our first visit to Puerte de Mogan and especially staying at Cordial Mogan Valle. We were a family of 4 and originally booked a 2 bed apartment but were allocated 2 x 1 bed apartments next door this was fine as our girls are 16 and 19. We were on the 9th floor which was great as we requested a top floor apartment .As the building is built into the side of a mountain there are 5 lifts to the various floors this was fine as we needed the exercise The apartments are very spacious and have everything you need there's are fans in the ceiling to cool you down and were great The complex has 3 pools and we used the largest one on the ground floor.Theres a Hyperdino Superdino supermarket across the road which is very well stocked and another one Spar about 5 mins walk on the way into Puerto de Mogan Puerto de Mogan is a little gem of a place full of lovely restaurants of which we would highly recommend the following La Linterna Calima Mogan Mar Basil's Dennehys We also tried Dr Fish for the foot therapy the fish clean your feet as you sit there All in all a lovely break with the family and yes we'll be back

Stayed here for the second time at the end of may. It is a lovely place, very relaxing and the children loved it ( two girls age 10 & 13) . The restaurants at the front are all excellent , would recommend Mogan Mar ( at far end of beach) , Zoo bar & La Cantina. We also went on the submarine and this is definitely worth a trip & good value for money. Can't wait to go back!

Vi som familj (två vuxna och två barn) blev rekommenderade att pröva på Det här lägenhetshotellet av både Apollos personal samt att vi hittade mycket goda referenser här på Tripadvisor för hotellet. Från allra första början till slut var vi fullt nöjda med hur det låg till i läge och renlighet. Lite svårt först att hitta till rätt avdelning för lägenhet men därefter ingen som helst konst att hitta fram till dem olika delarna som vi skulle till. Sängarna lite för hårda men annars bra. Personalen var otroligt serviceinriktade och det var lätt att få en mera personlig kontakt med dem då man väl behövde i olika ärenden. Personal hälsade varje gång man mötte dessa och det med ett leende så att man verkligen kände sig välkommen på hotellet. Personal var otroliga i sitt bemötande med barnen och kostade på sig en minut att skoja med dem trots ett stressigt tempo ibland. Extra plus var att det fanns två personal som pratade flytande svenska men för övrigt gick det bra med engelska. Rent och snyggt överallt trots alla dessa vattenflaskor som ska handlas hem för att drickas. Rena och snygga pooler med plats för alla, fanns inte plats så ordnades detta omgående för den som behövde. Kort promenad ner till centrum där man kunde hitta en rad trevliga resturanger med samma trevliga bemötande, kan varmt rekommendera dem allra flesta. En hel del små mysiga butiker med en uppsjö av olika artiklar, lite värre med butikerna som säljer elektronik där det var mer påträngande bemötande om du hade kamera med dig. Vi kan djupt rekommendera Cordial Mogan Valle och självklart, vi kommer tillbaka 2014 men då i tre veckor istället för två

Ok, after reading 100s of reviews and finally visiting here, this is my account of hotel. If you read a review about peeling paint, cracked walls, cockroaches or plugs hanging out then don't for one minute let this put you off from staying here. these are minor issues and will be addressed immiediately if you report it to reception. The hotel is very clean, one of the cleanest places ive ever seen and the smell of reception is a smell that will stay with you forever. we were self catering but ate breakfast, buffet a few times and dinner, also buffet. lots of selections of different foods, salads, meat, fish, pasta, fruit, almost everything. food very nice, breakfast was 9.50 euros an adult 4.75 a child, dinner was 15 euros an adult and 7.50 a child. reception staff, bar staff, restaurant staff and the cleaners all had smiles and always said Ola to you. the hotel IS huge and there are many lifts but don't let this stop you going because as adults you will get your bearings eventually. Please do not let people moaning about rooms and lifts stop you from going to this wonderful and warm hotel. Supermarket over road and 10 steps further down a restaurant on the lower floor. please visit here, not many people do because they walk past but have a look and you will pay another visit, even if only to drink and play free bingo and play your cards right. its family run and the father is Spanish but talks with a Scottish accent, they are lovely and welcoming people. A nice stroll to harbour, beach and restaurants is around a nice leisurely walk, around 15mins?. lots and lots of restaurants to choose from but just take a walk around, its a lovely walk too. lots of meat, pasta and pizzas, but do taste different. we ate at La Lonja one evening and my husband ate the shoulder of lamb, he said it was the best meal he had eaten there. we ate at many restaurants in 2 weeks but we ate at The Zoo around 5 evenings. the food was exceptional and the service. We travelled with Thompsons and went on 3 excursions booked through our rep when we got there. Our rep by the way was called Andrew, a lovely and helpful person. We went on the catamaran cruise on the west of the island, which was lovely, the waterpark in maspalomas, it was ok ,the one in Majorca is better, and we also went on the Camel Capers. this was brilliant, for me anyway. we were collected from outside the hotel, taken to maspalomas, around a 40min ride on the camels, I was so excited it was brilliant, anyway, then we had 1 hr 45 mins to have a walk around maspalomas, then picked up and taken back to hotel. this trip is well worth the money and I can guarantee that when you see the dunes for the first time you will go WOW and you will want to return. If you have been looking at this hotel then please book. you will not be disappointed. if you are then that's a shame. if you have any questions then please contact me and I will be happy to answer if I can. Overall a fantastic hotel and area. thankyou Cordial Valle for an amazing memory. xx

We spent 10 days at Cordial Mogan Valle in July 2013 and had a great holiday. The complex was very clean and well maintained and the apartment was excellent (except for a lack of air con, ceiling fans instead). The staff were incredibly friendly (as we found at their sister hotel in Tenerife last year) and the facilities were very good. The 3 pools were ideal and the restaurant served excellent food at breakfast and evening meal. The only slight disappointment was the 1st and 2nd sitting system for evening meals. The restaurant couldn't seat all guests at once so they gave you a 'sitting'. The first sitting, which we had, was from 630pm to 745pm (the second was 745 - 9pm. We had a 5 year old with us so the time was ok but we felt we would have liked to choose when we ate and not feel obliged to get there at 630 in order to be finished for 745. Having said that, it didn't really detract from the holiday and we would go back. The local beach was excellent (lovely sand, shallow water, plenty of space) and the harbour was lovely with plenty of places to eat out. If you wanted to go further afield car hire is recommended as public transport and taxis aren't cheap (a basic car with aircon cost us 32 per day and we only wanted 2 days hire). The Taurito Lido/mini water park around the headland (6 euros in a taxi) was great fun too.

I cannot speak more highly of these apartments. Absolutely fantastic complex. Love it so much we have just booked to go back next April for the 3rd time. The apartments are lovely & clean & very spacious. We love the big balcony with the sunbeds on & the shower. It's nice to lay on a sunbed on your balcony in privacy for a change instead of by the pool. The staff on Reception are really lovely & friendly. The glass of bubbly you get on arrival is a really nice touch after your journey. The location is great too. Would highly recommend Cordial Mogan Valle Appartments.

We visited Puerto Mogan in mid-July. The four of us (couple with two teenagers) had booked a 2-bed apartment. When we were checking in, we asked for a quiet location, as we usually do. The receptionist offered us two neighbouring apartments on the eighth floor at no extra charge. This was a fantastic decision - we had enormous balconies with room for all four of us to sunbathe on loungers, sit in the shade, eat out, even an outdoor shower for cooling off. The adjustable outdoor blinds are a great idea too. The apartments are very well decorated and furnished, with little extras like washing up liquid and dishcloths/teatowels provided. Cleaning was five days out of seven, to a very high standard. We couldn't praise the standard of accommodation enough. We found the ceiling fans with doors open at night to be sufficient, so did not feel the need for air-con once we remembered to lower the shades in the evening sun. Recommend the fans on at 2-3, which makes hardly any sound, but work well. The lifts are a necessity due to the 'vertical' building arrangement, but most building in this lovely valley has been done to fit in with the steep ravine sides. The pools were busy, but we found sun-beds when we needed them. We spent a great deal of time in the lovely apartment and on the huge balconies. Puerto Mogan itself is a quiet little place with a small safe beach and pretty harbour/marina with lots of restaurants and bars. There are no noisy clubs - if you want them get a taxi to nearby Puerto Rico. Down near the church, a few small bars are open late in a quaint old laneway with some good music and atmosphere. We had a relaxing break in a lovely setting. This is one to go back to.

Emjaywicks,
To start with the supposedly 'horrible' maybe we got lucky but we though it was great it was about 1 hour and a half long going and and hour going back. Nice comfy coach I get very travel sick but felt fine. Would definitely use the transfer again! I requested a high floor room, after given cava on arrival he told us we had been given a high floor room but the balcony was small so we could change in the morning as it was fully Booked! Room was a trek (floor 8) but was lovely so much space as for small balcony it was still double the size of normal sized one! However we did change rooms as our view was of the mountain but the rooftops of the apartments in front was the first thing you saw, plus why not change if the balcony could be even bigger :) (picky I know!). We were bed and breakfast, this was a great decision breakfast was fab! Fresh pancakes and omelettes every morning, you wanted it they had it! The pools were great infinity pool stunning but hard to get a place! We got up at 8 one morning and stayed there all day! It was worth it though:). People do try to save sun loungers with towels but staff put notes down threatening to confiscate towels and we noticed the next day not as many people did it :) the town is beautiful there's a lighthouse that has been converted into a bar out at sea which does lovely sangria unfortunately it shuts at 10! Bit of a walk but worth the trip :) restaurants we found were nicer by the beach that at the harbour especially the steak house :). Friday market is huge we like going for the experience though they all pretty much sell the same thing! We booked a couple of exertions without a doubt Thomas cooks 'spirit of the sea' is a must!! 98% chance of seeing a dolphin or a whale if not free boat ride and we saw both! Hundreds of dolphins and turtles which they walked around the boat with! Great way to end the holiday we wnt beginning of July was reaching 40 degrees very hot! We went as a couple there were plenty of other couples and lots of families :) Would 100% book again!!

RG G,
Arrived here on 17/7/13 on Ryanair flight from Edinburgh to Las Palmas which went perfectly & on time. Private transfer from Airport to Puerto Mogan Valle apts took appx 35 mins along the new motorway arriving at midday.The room wasn't ready so we had a look about & had lunch in the hotel. First impressions are great ,my 6yr old & 9 yr old kids love it, they've been in 2 of the 3 pools as we decided to steer clear of the infinity pool to give the people there some peace & quiet & appears to be mostly adults. We are full board plus which gives unlimited free local alcohol with meals or the usual soft drinks & bottled water (Tropical lager from GC is pretty good). The food is plentiful & in my opinion of good quality & varied to suit all tastes & nationalities.You can have pizza/hotdog & chips or salmon,steak or like me squid & mussels & much more. You can't take your drinks from the restaurant & the bar is about 9 euros for 2drinks. The weather is fantastic ,all staff very helpful / friendly & we're getting used to the layout of the apts. So far we think we made a good choice coming here & we haven't even headed into town yet.

Went here with my husband and 2 children aged 8 & 5, stayed from 22 June - 06 July 2013 half board, Best Points Accommodation is very good, and cleaned thoroughly by the maids 5 times a week. Breakfast was good, Evening meals are good if you like fish and red meat, i only eat white meat not on the bone and they only served it twice while we were here and i didnt enjoy the evening meals. Go to Dennehys restaurant in Mogan their food is delicicous especially their home made cheescake. Balcony's are massive and lovely to sit at in the evening when kids are going to sleep Staff are so friendly, our two kids loves the entertainment team which was Silvan and Tino Bad Points Got resort hoppa transfer which took 2 hrs 35 mins as this hotel is the last one on the route and if you go straight from airport to accommodation by private taxis it is only 40 mins.

Sitting waiting for transfer to airport so decided to do this. (It is the last resort this side of the island - our transfer time here was MUCH longer than 60 minutes!!) My 18 year daughter have been here a week and have had a really lovely holiday. Peurto de Mogan is a stunning location, very picturesque harbour. Beach is small but never seems to be too crowded and it has loads to offer, jetskis, parasailing etc. Also has water taxis to other locations along south west coast. Good number of restuarants all wanting your business! However it does look like there is development going on so maybe in five years time it could a bustling holiday resort much like neighbouring Peurto Rico :( The apartments and self catering facilities at cordial valle are second to none (alhtough could do with either a grill or small oven). The suoermarket is literally 5 minutes stroll and seems to be reasonably priced (there is a larger Spar also about 10 minute stroll). I used the gym a few times and was the only one there - its small but has all you need (2 euros per session). Spa looked lovely but didn't find time to use it (7 euros but treatments obviously extra) The three pools are fab, the one with kiddies pool and bar seemed to be heaving when we ventured that way. We tended to use infinity pool and north pool. Didn't really have a problem finding a sunbed but then we were busy either at beach or on excursions til mid afternoon so didn't get to pool til 3ish. Can't really comment on restuarant or bars as didn't venture into them. Having read previous reviews I did email direct to request higher apartment - we were given B809 - superb - massive balcony, sun on it from about 9 onwards, the outside shower is fab (especially after a run or gym!) Also the blinds help to keep apartment cool and provide much wewlcome shade when eating on balcony. Its away from the pools and bar so peaceful. Could do with air conditioning, fan in kitchen and bedroom, I believe you can hire portable units if desired but my daughter decided to sleep on balcony on sun lounger instead! As mentioned on other reviews, getting to apartments takes some getting used to - YOU WILL GET LOST AT LEAST ONCE! We found using the stairs so much easier in the end! If your looking for a quiet self catering holiday in the sun then this is it. No noise late at night, no rowdy 18-30 holiday makers, just indiviuals, couples, friends and family spending quality time together :D

From the moment we arrived we it was obvious to us we were going to have a good time, Reception Staff's politeness and attitude to 3 tired travellers was fantastic . We booked "Half Board Plus" and it was well worth the price. The Hotel is a definite for couples with young children as we had a three year old girl with us . Play area's clean well maintained and had plenty for her to do . Pool's were as you would expect and again pool area's clean . Distance Puerto Mogan and beach a short and relaxing walk . This area is more suited to Couples looking for a relaxing and peaceful holiday. Food and Service was excellent. Many Thank's Cordial Mogan Valle and we will be back.

My partner and I stayed here the last week of May 2013 and have no complaints what so ever. We emailed in advance to request a top floor room and on arrival we were happy to be allocated one. At check the staff were friendly and very helpful and the directions to our room given were spot on we found it no problem. The room was huge we had a bedroom and separate living room/dining kitchen, and large bathroom with shower over bath. The balcony was perfect for afternoon/early evening sunbathing, and being able to wind down the shade at either side of the balcony when sun got too hot was ideal. The rooms were cleaned to a high standard 5 days out of 7 and always had a supply of fresh towels. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would return if only the resort was not as quiet in the evenings,being put out of restaurants at 1030-11 was a bit odd, not that we stay out late, we would have liked to choose whether or not we stayed out for a drink or two and most of the restaurants were very quiet sometimes only a couple of tables being occupied.

LollyLoo2,
My boyfriend and I have just returned from a one weeks stay at the Cordial Mogan Valle. Beautiful place and a beautiful hotel! When we first arrived at reception we were slightly early for check in (we arrived at 1 o'clock and check in is at 2) so the staff at reception offered us a welcome drink, stored our cases in the case room and gave us a pass to allow us to get access to the hotel facilities while we waited only half an hour for our room to be ready. When we got into our room, we were not disappointed. After reading the reviews and viewing the pictures on trip advisor we did have high expectations and these were certainly met. Our room was on the 8th floor and had a beautiful large balcony with gorgeous views over the mountain. The balcony had 2 sunlounges and a table with 4 chairs. It got the sun for around 11 until 7 so it was a lovely option to have to enjoy the sun. As many reviews have mentioned, there is no air con, nevertheless we found the fans to be sufficient. There were also blinds on the balcony which could be adjusted to stop the sun hitting the glass doors and this really did stop the room getting so warm. The room was well equipped: kettle, toaster, microwave, hob, fridge and even had washing up liquid, cloth and drying towel. The only thing we had to pay for was the safe. This was 14 euro for the whole stay (2 euros a day) which seems pretty reasonable. The rooms were kept clean with the cleaning service 5 days a week and the towels were changed every 2 days! There were 3 pools at the hotel, however we mainly used the infinity pool. This seemed to be the smaller of the 3 but we did not find it a problem to get sunbeds at any point (up until the last 2 days - however this could be due to the school holidays starting at the place getting overall busier). On the last couple of days, people were going to down to the pool about 7/8 in the morning and putting towels down (even although this is not allowed by the hotel) and not using the sunbeds until mid afternoon. This is the only fault which the hotel should be addressing but the loungers on the balcony do, in a way, provide an alternative to the pool so it's not a complete disaster. The hotel is a short walk away from the restaurants and the beach and a slight bit further away from the port. The supermarket is right outside the main hotel entrance and was ideal for us as we went self catering. They had resonable prices and fresh breads and pastries on offer every day. Mogan is beautiful but quiet. Ideal for a relaxing getaway. We did not eat in the hotel so can't comment on the food there, however we did eat out at a different restaurant every night and did not have one bad meal! Lovely to eat out while looking over the beach or the port. Cordial Mogan Valle is an excellent hotel in a beautiful and peaceful location. All the staff we dealt with were very helpful and pleasant. This is definitely a place which I recommend and will no doubt be returning to at some point in the future!

my wife and I have just returned from a two week stay at these apartment on the 20 of june.To say we had a wonderful time would be an understatement as this was our 14 th visit to the apartments. there are three swimming pools plus a small pool for the kids.The apartments are cleaned to a very high standard and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Puerto de mogan is a beautiful old fishing port with lots of restuarants around the harbour, and has a beautiful beach with a huge outdoor market every Friday. We hope to return early November this year to celebrate our golden wedding anniversary as we have enjoyed all our holidays here. so what can I say give it a try you wont be disappointed rab and Jessie.

My wife & I went at the end of April and true to reports this is a great complex. 3 swimming pools which includes a quiet pool, nice landscaped surroundings, large apartment with huge balcony and furnished to a good standard. Breakfast was excellent with plenty to choose from. Puerto de Mogam very nice with good beach. The only thing that let the resort down was lack of good restaurants. Not sure if we were unlucky but food was of a poor standard in most places we ate at and we are not fussy. Luke warm food, etc left the eating out a bit disappointing. However Mogan Valle apartments superb so more positives than negatives and supermarket just next door so very handy.

Just back from 2 weeks in cordial mogan valle. very clean, spacious self-catering apartments. We got a room on the 8th floor with a sea view. 3 pools to choose from, very little reserving of sun beds. always plenty available. the weather was great and the location stunning. This is a quiet resort with a beautiful harbour area called little venice. We ate out every evening and the meals were a mixed bag. No lager louts, time share etc. Hotel staff excellent. we went as a couple so did not eat in the restaurant or go to the shows in the accommodation, these were mostly attended by families so can't comment. recommend the walk up the mountain facing the hotel. As a quiet holiday in a lovely location this place would be hard to beat. would like to return again soon

First time visiting Gran Canaria. Pleased we chose this location as it was away from the more touristy areas. The apartment was first class, well appointed and spotlessly clean. Although it lacked air conditioning this was not a problem at the time we visited. The food was excellent, with plenty choice and and good range of local and other dishes. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. We visited the on-site Spa a couple of times. It had good facilities - particularly enjoyed the "Flotation Pool". We arranged a hire car in advance which gave us the freedom to explore. We went to Maspalomas a couple of times. We enjoyed our evening cinema under the stars, complete with blanket and coffee served at our settee. We'll be back!

We are just back a week from Puerto de Mogan having stayed at the Cordial Mogan Valle Apartments and I had one of the best holidays in years. The Valle apartments are absolutely fantastic and spotlessly clean, all the staff from the housekeeping to the maintenance to the restaurant and reception staff are just fantastic. We stayed on a half board basis and the food in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner was superb and there was something for everyone. the only negative I can give is as a younger couple in our early 30's with no children, the bar in the complex wasn't really for us but honestly we didn't mind at all, there were plenty of bars down on the beach and port to take a stroll down too. We just didn't want to leave, we will most definitely be back! Stay here.... you won't regret it!

Just back from our 4th visit in 3 years, this is a perfect place to stay when you have young children. We have first stayed here with 6 month old (and pregnant) and now the kids are 3 and 20 months and loving it. NIce big clean apartments , every time the requested cots have been there. very friendly and helpful staff, easy to approach only the only time i needed to talk to them was to check which day it was pony ride. The kids pool is fun and the playground and mini disco too. we now have a royalti card (free) which gives you offers at the valle apartments e.g. discount on food and drinks and on rooms, really good little extra luxury :) would recommend familes to stay here, everything you need is here and supermatket just across the road.

Papasascha,
Wir wurden positiv überrascht von dieser sehr sauberen Anlage in einem tollen Hafenstätchen. Die Anlage wird leider von sehr wenigen deutschen gebucht hauptsächlich Skandinavier, Britten und Holländer was uns aber nicht gestört hat. Drei Pools bietet die Anlage und es iss immer irgendwo eine Liege frei. Positiver Gästeservice WIFI in der gesamten Anlage Gratis. Die Appartments sind sehr gut ausgestattet für Ferienwohnungen und werden 5 mal die Woche gereinigt was für eine Ferienwohnung wirklich ausergewöhnlich ist. Das einziege was uns hier im Hochsommer fehlen würde wer eine Klimaanlage diese kann aber an der Rezeption nachbestellt werden im Junin war das noch nicht nötig. Viele tolle Restaurants von Chic bis Friettenbude in wenigen Minuten erreichbar. Auch der Supermarkt liegt direkt vor der Türe. Wir hatten ein Mietauto was wir wohl nicht mehr machen würden da direkt vorm Hotel Busse in alle Richtungen pendeln. Wir empfehlen diese Anlage alle dennen Leuten die mit Kindern unterwegs sind und es etwas normal und nicht so verkrampft im Urlaub wollen. Pärchen ohne Kinder sind hier definitiv fehl am Platze. Hier sind überall Kinder die schreien brüllen und spaß haben also Ihr Kinderlein kommet und das finden wir richtig gut Actio am Pool und auf allen 300 Balkonen.

We recently returned from the Mogal Valle apartments which we had booked based on the trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The hotel is at the back of the resort, about 10/15 minutes walk to the beach along a lovely pedestrian promenade. We requested a high floor apartment and were given one on the top floor. It took us a while to negotiate the lifts as you have to use several due to the way the apartments are set into the hillside, however, we very quickly worked out which we needed and how to get around. As others have commented, the balcony was huge. We had a table and 4 chairs, 2 sunloungers, an outdoor shower and still had room for at least 2 more sunloungers. The apartment was well stocked, and there is a large supermarket just across the road, although we didn't use the kitchen, as we had booked half board. There is a dafe in the room at a cost of 2 euros a day. The only down side is that although there are ceiling fans, there is no air con in the rooms. Thankfully the weather was not too hot whilst we were there and so a combination of the fans and opening the balcony doors was sufficient. There are three pools around the complex. We used the main pool which also had the childrens pool within it. It was never over busy and even going down after lunch it was easy to find sun loungers. The staff were extremely friendly and spoke excellent English. Our daughter has special needs and the restaurant staff were fantasic with her. We booked half board and found the food excellent. Everything you could possibly want for breakfast and omlettes, fried eggs and pancakes cooked fresh to order. In the evening, there was plenty of choice and meat and fish again cooked to order. We were glad to have boked half board as we felt that the prices in the restaurants even for a basic meal was quite expensive. Bottles of wine in the hotel were 9.75 euros which we didn't feel was too expensive. Puerto Mogan itself is beautiful. It was very quiet when we were there at the end of May and every corner you turned was a picture postcard. The beach is only small but nice golden sand which shelves gently into the sea so great for children. We took a trip through the centre of the island wjich was spectacular and booked this at the local tourist office. The office staff are extrelemy helpful and friendly and have the bus timetables if you want to use the local buses which we did. There is a lovely waterpark in the next small resort of Taurito which we used a few times. this is smaller that the main acqualand, but a lot cheaper and much quieter. Taurito itself is a tiny resort, but some lovely tropical gardens lead down to the beach. We also visited the Palmitas tropical park. This is a lovely day although the ticket is quite expensive. We booked the hotel and flight separately rather than through a package company and so booked a taxi transfer. Would recommend this as it takes 35 minutes from the airport to the hotel, via the newly opened motorway. If you are looking for a lot fo nightlife, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a quite evening walk to watch the sun go down and a drink in a quiet beachfront bar, then this is the place for you. We will be going back again next year.

Just home from a week in the wonderful Cordial Mogan Valle and we couldnt fault it. staff all very friendly and helpfull, excellent food at the buffet breakfast and dinner, plenty of choice even for the fussiest of eaters!! 3 pools so plenty of choice if you want busy with activities you can go to the bar pool, Silvan the entertainment guy provides plenty to do, water polo, aqua aerobics etc. or if you wasnt a quieter life then the infinity pool is there. not a great view from it but nice place to relax!! rooms were very clean, big balcony and very comfortable. toaster, microwave, kettle, fridge/freezer and hob top with pots and pans avaliable for use and with shop just accross the road its very handy for cooking meals if you were there on self catering. Ceiling fans in bedroom and living room. warning, they are quite noisy! we both woke up the first night thinking it was lashing rain!!! Mogan itself is a lovely resort but dont go there if you are expecting a wild night life. Bar in the hotel shuts at 11 and the evening entertainment isnt great. there are a few nice bars down in the port that stay open late though. if you are looking for a night out Peurto Rico is only a bus or taxi ride away. couple of euro on the bus or about €11 in a taxi. reception will order you a taxi and they will be there in 10 mins to collect you. Just be very carefull with the ammount you give the taxi driver! our first trip, our driver tried to scam us out of money!! loads to do in the area, plenty of water sports in Mogan and pretty much anything else can be gotten to easily by bus. Highly reccomend the Moonlight Cinema in Maspalmos! great night out! If you are looking for help organising things to do and are there without a travel company as we were, contact the Thompson reps in your hotel. they were great. even though we wern't booked through them they offered their help and we went on their trip to the dolphin Boat tour. Highly reccommended! Best thing we did in our week.

We stayed here in a one bedroomed apartment on the ninth floor from 3d to 10th June. We were on a half board plus holiday deal. The apartment was spacious and spotless. The restaurant was good with a good choice for breakfast with omelettes, fried eggs and pancakes being freshly cooked. The evening buffet had a choice of 4 freshly cooked mains with a good choice of other options. We had free drinks from the house wine list or other soft drinks and beer. We expected one glass of red and white wine with a bottle of water and were presented with two bottles! The safe was 14 euros for the week with free Wi-Fi and remote control. We even got a free spa treatment but didn't use it so can't comment. The complex was very pretty and well looked after. Three great pools plus a children's pool. We loved Puerto de Mogan itself and used buses and a glass bottom boat to get around.

This was a testing trip for us, and our first with our 9 and a half month old daughter! In total, there were 6 adults and 3 children, aged 3 and a half, 14 months and 9 and a half months. Puerto Mogan is the last drop off for shared transfers. Ours only took around an hour so no complaints there. Unfortunately, it took two hours on the way back to the airport after going round the other resorts and picking others up. If you dont fancy this, organise private transfers as Puerto Mogan is also the first pick up point On arrival, we were greeted with a glass of sparkling wine, unfortunately only one of the three rooms was ready at the time. We dropped the bags and went off to explore... Two hours later, we all had our keys, so went to see what was there. The supermarket across the road is reasonable and has everything you'll need for your room. The rooms are excellent and the balconies are huge with 4 sun loungers and a dining table. The sun shines on the balcony from around 10 am until the sun sets around 8pm. As there is nothing across the road from the hotel there is no one looking into your apartment either. The beds are huge and very comfortable which helps too! The apartments are clean, spacious and very well equipped with a fridge/freezer, 2 ring hob, microwave, kettle, toaster etc. We had a two bedroom apartment with a cot which we requested. If you want a high chair you have to rent it from reception. The rooms get warm, but the ceiling fans help. If you want an a/c unit, this can be hired and will cost 60 Euros for the week (the fans were fine for us). The bedrooms also have blackout curtains which are great for helping the little ones sleep while the sun is still out. We stayed half board and had breakfast at the buffet. There is an excellent choice of food and it tastes great! The staff were very good and stop to say hi to the children which they enjoyed! I would recommend this option as it eliminated the need to organise breakfast and was a relaxing way to start the day. There was plenty space at the poolside and we easily got sunbeds at the kids pool everyday. In the week we were here, I didnt see any towels on unoccupied sunbeds at this pool which was a refreshing change from other places ive been. The pool is salt water and is pretty cold too. Would have preferred it if the kids pool had been heated. We walked down to the front each night for dinner and there are a number of restaurants, serving all types of food. For seafood, id recommend 'El Capuchino' and for burgers i'd recommend 'Zoo'. Both are situated in a little square over the bridge towards the Marina. For steak, the tex-mex restaurant on the front facing the beach is excellent! (the fillet steak is superb). There is a small bar called 'Cuba Libre' situated one street back from the beach. Its a great little place for sitting outside at night, relaxing with a few drinks... The apartments are well situated, well equipped and the staff could not have been more friendly, especially towards the children. We are already looking at going back around this time next year and would recommend these apartments to anyone. If you want a holiday in Gran Canaria with all night partying, clubs and large crowds, dont go here. This is a perfect resort for relaxing, eating good food and catching some sun. If you're going though, stay at the Cordial Mogan Valle.

Stayed in Mogan Valle Apartments from 1st. to 8th. of June and could not have been happier with our stay. I had requested a high floor as suggested by other reviewers and we were given an apartment on the 8th floor, not so sure if this was a good idea after all, the balcony was indeed fantastic, very big with great views, however, being in full sun from around midday on meant that it really was too hot to use in the late afternoon/evening when I would have enjoyed sitting in the shade after being by the pool for the morning. That said everything else about the apartment was fantastic, modern, bright and spotlessly clean. Pool area was lovely and while we were there it was not necessary to be up at all hours to put towels on beds which has been our experience for many years as there were always beds available when required. We were self catering but we did go to the restaurant for breakfast on the first morning and the buffet was very good. Food at the snack bar was also good. Would have no hesitation recommending Cordial Mogan Valle and praise for this complex is both accurate and deserved

Spending our last night in Cordial Mogan Valle hotel in Puerto Mogan and have had a wonderful time. This hotel is fantastic, all the staff are professional, friendly and very helpful. We have been here two weeks on a half board basis and can honestly say that you would struggle to find any better a place. The food has been excellent and varied, I am a fussy eater and have thoroughly enjoyed all the meals. Other people have complained that they had to queue for breakfast, the hotel was full when we where here and the longest we had to wait for a table was about 2 minutes on 2 occasions. Even though the hotel was busy you didn't feel rushed or pressured to hurry to leave the dining room and the buffet meals and restaurant staff were first class. We stayed in room 838 which we found no bother at all with the directions given to us. I had emailed the hotel to ask for a room with a view of the harbour and the apartment was excellent and had a fantastic view down over Puerto Mogan and the harbour. The apartment was well laid out and had everything we needed. There was plenty hot water and the beds are very comfortable. We rented the safe in the room which was approx 30 euros for the 2 weeks. The apartment was cleaned 5 days a week by Inma our maid who was excellent. The pools and pool areas where spotless as was the whole hotel. We didn't go to much of the entertainment as enjoyed a walk down to the harbour at night but what we did go to was very good. Puerto Mogan itself is quite quiet but very picturesque, we did venture out and about to Puerto Rico by water taxi but the journey there and back was the only nice thing about the place. It's stuck in the 90's and all the way along the promenade you are hassled by people trying to get you to go to Anfi and sign up for time share - an absolute nightmare!!! We took a trip to Las Palmas with a Thomsons tour which was lovely but about a 2 hour journey there and back. We also went to Arguinegen and Melonares which are both very pretty and definitely worth a visit. To sum up the Cordial Mogan Valle hotel is fantastic and you won't be disappointed with your holiday here. The people who have complained about this hotel are nit picking ! I spend ages reading reviews before I book a holiday as I am very fussy but will definitely be returning here again.

The resort is lovely with a nice beach and harbour. It is quiet however and not suited to the 18-30 type of holidaymaker, but it is ideal for those with young families, the elderly, and those with mobility issues as the resort is flat with few steps. The apartments are very clean, spacious and well equipped. Our room F742 even had a kettle. Our large balcony was quite private and caught the sun from noon until sunset. We were self catering and the supermarket opposite the apartments was well stocked and reasonably priced. It is only a 10 minute stroll to the beach and harbour area down a pedestrianized avenue and there are plenty of restaurants to cater for every taste. All in all, we had a nice relaxing holiday and would highly recommend these apartments

Agree with all the good reviews.Had a very relaxing holiday. Lifts no problem were on 8th floor 3 lifts to apartment, worked it out very quickly. You would need to have a very poor sense of direction to find them a problem. We were on breakfast only and was a very good selection and something for everyone's taste. Agree that resort although beautiful is quiet but there is entertainment on in the Morgan Playa which was very good and the cocktails were actually cheaper than most of the bars in the town. All in all had a lovely time in lovely clean and quiet apartments an would return with no hesitation.

This was always going to be a difficult review to write - it was our second trip to the apartments and we had fallen in love with them the first time we stayed. So there were always going to be some tiny, minor niggles which raised their heads during a second visit. I think I need to visit a standard holiday complex to get some perspective! As always, the check in process was lovely and easy, with a very welcome glass of fizz. We were up on the 9th level which was fine, although there were problems mid week when one set of lifts was inaccessible due to the pool works and another lift was out of order making getting in and out a little tricky with the buggy (although this was sorted after about 24 hours). We had one of the double height apartments which was lovely, but one of the curtains was jammed meaning it wouldn't shut. Not a big issue but it meant my daughter couldn't sleep in there in her cot as the balcony nights are on all night. Again, a minor issue but despite reporting it, it wasn't fixed during our stay. The spa was lovely as usual, one lady below has said she didn't fancy the sauna etc and I don't blame her, but the flotation cave is worth the 7 euros alone. Very very relaxing. We used the kids club for the first time and it was brilliant. My daughter adored Tino, and was at his side throughout. He and Silvan work incredibly hard. Tino invited us to one of the shows he was in at the hotel next door, and the hotel welcomed us in. It was lovely to go for the evening. Please don't get me wrong, it was a lovely, lovely holiday. Its a lovely resort, brilliant for kids, incredibly welcoming restaurants, and the apartments are generally brilliant. We will be going back!

Just returned from a 10day stay in the Cordial Mogan Valle apartments. We arrived at about 11.30am but our room wasn't ready so we headed of to explore the harbour after dropping our bags. Check-in wasnt very speedy but the guy was getting trained in so you would expect as much. Reception area is impressive and very retro looking. We were given a room on the 6th floor which was great, high enough, and got sun all afternoon and evening. Kitchen was well equipped with plenty of utensils. Bathroom also was very large and spacious. The apartment itself was great with seperate large living area. Like most apartments there was only3 English speaking channels and they all seemed to be news channels! But it wasnt really a problem as we werent in much! Very clean, cleaned 5times a week with towel changes 3 times a week. As mentioned before, balconies are massive with 2 sun loungers and table&chairs. There are also parasols that come out from the apartment above you if you prefer to sit in the shade or want to cool off. The outdoor shower is also handy for this too. Def the nicest and largest apartment I've ever stayed in while abroad. Onto the pools and amenities, there are three in total through out the complex. The bottom one also has a kiddies pool next to it and we spent some days here. The middle pool is the infinity pool and is adults only I believe. Very peaceful and relaxing and near enough to our apartment so we often went to this pool. Cold initially when you get in but you get used to it!!! The other pool at the north of the complex appeared nice enough the day we went for a look but it is shaded a lot from the trees down there so didnt stay at it. I cant comment on the spa as I didn't go down there. Himself went to the gym which he said done the job ok but there was no aircon in there so got very hot very quickly. The only thing I will say about this is it only opens at 10am and closes at around4pm! Would be better if it opened a little earlier and you could go before the temperatures got too high and also before breakfast. Instead we went for a few early morning runs while there was still some shade &then back for a hearty breakfast. We were on half board basis and I have to stay I couldn't fault either the food or the staff in the dining hall. The staff here work increibly hard and very long days but are always pleasant and have a smile for the guests. For breakfast there was varied selection including fresh fruits, cereals, nuts and yoghurts, the continental selection included everthing you'd expect along with smoked salmon and kippers etc. You could also get eggs cooked fresh to order with the hot food buffet which included hash browns, sausages, streaky bacon, mushrooms etc. There was also a selection of pastries and pancakes. It would be a very fussy person that couldnt find something there. I cant comment on lunch in the snack bar as we never ate in there but we did get the cooked chicken to take away one day and it was delicious. There is a HiperDino outside the apartments so we usually got provisions in there for lunch. Very reasonible prices there too. Evening meals were of similar quality to the breakfasts. Great variety and a kids option every single night too. Buffet meals as well as fresh meat and fish cooked infront of you on the hot plate. Roast beef was on2 of the nights and was delicious the night I had it. Plenty of desserts too. We had our drinks included and the house red&white wines were very nice. The one thing I will say about the drinks with your evening meal was there seemed to be a problem taking your wine outside once you were finished your meal!! Which is sensless to me as you have paid for it so what difference does it make where you consume it within the complex. This is a bit of a nusance if one is drinking red and one white like we were! There are 2sittings for the dinner , the early one 6.30pm to 7.45pm and the later one 8.15pm to 9.30pm which we didnt realise until the 1st night we arrived at the 8.30pm one!! To be honest the early sitting was just too early for us as I found we were rushing up from the beach or the pool to be showered and ready for 6.30pm. I think it would suit families with kids better or people a little older that may prefer there dinner earlier. It definitley wasn't for us though and If I had been made aware that we were required to stick to this for the 10days I would've requested the later sitting. It wasnt anything major but it did mean we ate out a few nights instead of rushing back up for dinner. So as you can see I wouldn't have consumed a bottle of wine in an hour and we had to be out of the dining hall by 7.45pm so therefore it was ridiculous that you had to leave your drink behind you. The kids entertainers work very hard both during the days and also during the night time program. Everyone with kids appeared to be praising both of them and all getting involved. A lot of very happy kids every evening. There is also a libraby to swap books in the reception area which is a godsend if you are a fast reader, saves on carrying them with you. All in all had a great relaxing and carefree 10days and would have no hesitation in returning to these apartments. Great location, great staff, wonderful food and atmosphere. But would just try for the later sitting. :)

We staying here for one week in the beginning of May and our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. Our double apartment was spacious and clean. It as great to have the two bathrooms including 2 baths. The balcony was large and plenty of seats, sun beds and adjustable shades. The kitchen had cloths, washing liquid and coffee machine but had to buy filters (sold in packs of 80). Excellent cleaning service. We used the south pool (heated) beside the kiddies pool (cold). Plenty of sun loungers- no reserving. Nearby, clean toilets. Lovely play facilities for the kids especially the jungle gym one beside the snack bar. About a 10 min amble on a flat, safe pedestrian walkway to the beach and restaurants. The beach was lovely - gentle slope, gentle waves - brilliant for children. We ate in several different restaurants and all the food was fantastic. Transfer from airport is about 45 mins on a motorway with 10 tunnels through the mountains. We will definitely return.

We have just returned from our second visit to the Cordial Mogan Valle Apartments in Puerto Mogan. Again, like last year, we have no complaints. I notice many people complaining about the transfer, but we couldn't fault it at all, however with our booking through Low Cost Holidays, we only made about 4 stops, so the overall journey took approx less than 1 hour. We arrived late afternoon at the apartments and as previously were greeted by the pleasant reception staff with a welcome glass of champagne. We checked in quickly and smoothly (don't forget the free wi-fi code) the only slight niggle we had was finding our way to our allotted apartment via the lift system as the signage doesn't seem to make much sense, but we did find the funny side in this with another newly arrived family who were following us via the steps just to laugh at us each time we got off on the wrong floor. We eventually found our room and as they are almost all identical, we knew what to expect and were not disappointed, the balcony with two sun loungers, outdoor shower and table with four chairs, although slightly smaller than our apartment last year, it was ideal for just the two of us. Inside was a good sized bathroom, kitchen area, lounge area leading on to the balcony, with separate bedroom also leading onto the balcony. Room Service are very efficient, in fact if anything too efficient as my husband enjoys a long lie in we had to turn them away in the mornings, so he was grumpy, but they always return without fail in the afternoon, which is a pleasant surprise after you have been out for a while to return to a fresh smelling apartment, beds made and clean towels. (Ladies, you know what I mean, I enjoyed the luxury of having someone cleaning up after me for a week and made the most of it ;-)). As we were self catering, we made our way to the Super Dino supermarket just across the way and stocked up on toiletries, (amazingly, this time I managed to travel with just cabin baggage to save a few quid) snacks and drinks for the week. Ladies,there are also hairdryers in the bathrooms, so no need to take your own, save on your luggage weight. The walk to the beachfront is approx half a mile, but this is a pleasant walk down a paved pedestrian walkway lined with palm trees. We tried a few more restaurants than last year, but can still highly recommend the Mogan Mar, even though we noticed it was 25% more expensive than last year, thanks to the good old EU :( We had wonderful meals at the El Capuchino Restaurant excellent if you enjoy freshly caught fish, I have never eaten so much fresh tuna and another night we enjoyed a fantastic pepper steak at the little Irish Bar on the marina. At night we wandered around the sea front and found The Ferrari Bar for late night drinks. We drank there each night and Marcos the owner was charming and very hospitable, this we found more relaxing as this bar only serves alcohol so you can relax and unwind without being hurried as in a restaurant waiting for free tables. If you are looking for a relaxing get away, this is definitely the place for you. There are no noisy night clubs, fish and chips and sky sports bars to be seen, but if you want the best of both worlds, Puerto Rico is not far away. I have never returned to the same resort twice, you always know whether you want to return or not within a couple of days. Well I am already planning the next week away, hopefully September/October time and wouldn't change a thing. In fact I intend to return as often as possible so even planning on having Spanish language lessons ;-)

The other reviews largely say it all - excellent spacious appartments, pretty resort, good transport by bus or boat to other places so you can easily do without a hire car - but for me the big plus point was the food. I had emailed in advance to ask about gluten free food and had a reassuring email back. On the first night the chef went round the buffet telling me what I could eat and then said they would cook me some chips in uncontaminated oil which arrived a few minutes later, a huge portion. Every day 2 sorts of meat and 2 types of fish were grilled to order so apart from the other stuff on the buffet I always had choice. I was told to request gluten free pasta but a couple of days later, without me having asked, the chef brought me a delicious huge bowl of gf spaghetti with prawn and tomato sauce. So I asked another night and got some with a pepper sauce. For dessert there was always fresh fruit, flambeed fruit which I had with ice cream (the chef couldn't guarantee the ice cream but I risked it and was fine), usually flan (the creme caramel sort) and cheeses. Every breakfast I was brought a warm crisp gf baguette which was a real treat.After a couple of days they said they also had gf cereal, cookies and cake - all of which I tried once I knew they were available, though I didn't need them as the breakfast buffet is vast. I have told them they should inform coeliac guests exactly what they have as we just assume there isn't anything. So, the food made my holiday - especially as the Kalisa ice cream you get in Gran Canaria marks those suitable for coeliacs (most of them) and even has no added sugar ice creams which suited my diabetic husband. And the weather was wonderful!

It was a little daunting when we first arrived as the apartments were spread over 9 floors and we didn't think we'd find our way around however staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and we soon got used to the lifts. Lovely location as just a 10 minute stroll to the sea front and beautiful port. So relaxing. We took advice from a trip advisor review and asked for a higher floor room which afforded great views and a lovely big balcony. Plenty of parking outside which was handy as you need a hire car in Puerto Mogan. If you're looking for nightclubs (which we weren't) don't go to Puerto Mogan

delofan,
We are almost finished our week in this wonderful place. From the start everything looked good. Reception check in was quick, smooth and friendly. We were offered a glass of cava while checking in. As we were too late for dinner reception arranged a cold plate for us. Room was very clean and spacious with a great view. Staff exceptionally friendly. Breakfast great and dinner also very good. We had intended to eat out at some of the restaurants in Mogan but the food at the apartments was so good we did not feel the need. The free wifi was great and reception great across the apartments. Supermarket across the road must have the cheapest prices on the island. This is one of the best holidays we have been on and would highly recommend Cordial Valle to anyone.

My husband, son (aged 6) and I spent Easter vacation at Cordial Mogan Valle. Based on our overall experience, I would highly recommend this hotel and this location for families with (younger) children. We stayed on the 6th level and the location was great. Easy access to the rest of the hotel by either stairs or elevators. Spacious rooms and a balcony as big as an extra room! Sun all day, from around lunch-time. Kitchen and hotplate to make easy meals on the go. The only draw-back with our room was the bed. The mattress was very hard and the pillows were not the best either. Got used to it after a couple of days :) I can not praise the service of this hotel enough. The staff is excellent. Friendly, helpful and very understanding with children. All questions are answered and all problems are solved. We decided to have the breakfast buffet only and that was a good choice for us. Nice and clean breakfast area, we especially enjoyed the opportunity to sit outside for breakfast. Down-town Puerto de Mogan offers tons of places to eat and we tried different foods every day. Also, there is a huge supermarket across from the hotel that has all kinds of foods and supplies. We usually ended up eating breakfast at the hotel, one meal down-down and one meal at home during the day. The hotel offers activities for the whole family, every day but Monday. Our son did the mini-club and mini-disco a few times and he really enjoyed it. We also used the different pools quite a bit and the play area. Depending on the kid of course, I think that maybe it would be a bit boring for teen-agers. Most activities are geared towards families and young children. The hotel is located a short walk for a very charming down-town. Make sure to visit both sides of the harbour, as the side further away is much more quiet and quaint! For part of the trip, my father and his girlfriend also joined us. They stayed at the hotel next door, more posh and expensive. All of us truly enjoyed Puerto de Mogan. Considering we range in age from 6 - 79, that is pretty good! In closing, I would highly recommend renting a car to drive around the island. It saves much time compared to the bus-service. Also, with the new road just opened i March 2013, the traffic is not bad. We found our way around pretty easy by following signs and maps. Would especially recommend a trip to Las Palmas. A nice town to visit to walk around and shop etc. We will be back to Puerto de Mogan and Mogan Valle for sure.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment with two bathrooms and had an amazing huge balcony with comfy sunbeds and an outdoor shower. The apartment was very nice, modern and so clean. We got sun all day from 11, were near the lovely infinity pool and were not on a high floor. I cannot recommend this place enough. We stayed half board and the food selection was good. We ate out at the marina two nights for a change. The staff were lovely, the whole place clean and it was only a 10-15 walk down to the marina. We will definitely be back. The only thing that could be added to this place is air conditioning as there were only ceiling fans.

Once a year we have spent in this apartment hotel and we are after 4 stays still of the same opinion that this is a first-class hotel for families and couples. We have booked two 4-weeks stay also in 2014. Excellent service in the room and the hotel in general. There are several pools and fine dining options near the hotel. A large store with a good selection of food and drink, including current Norwegian newspapers. With 15 minutes walk to the beach and very good hiking up the hill, this has become our regular vacation spot.

This was our third visit to this popular hotel in Puerto de Mogan and I'm pleased to say that standards have been maintained. We were a little disappointed to have been allocated one of the lower apartments in H-block, which doesn't get much sun in January but, apart from that, we were once again very happy here. There were a few minor problems with the room this year - including a light fitting which suddenly "popped out" of the ceiling - but these were sorted out quickly and efficiently following a quick call to reception. We're looking forward to going back next year!

On our arrival we were very impressed with the Reception staff who were very informative and helpful regarding any questions we asked. While checking in we were offered a glass of fruit juice or champagne (yes you guessed right we took the second option) we were on holiday. I did request a high floor and they did not let us down. Our apartment had 2 bedrooms,2 bathrooms not bad for just two persons . We did use the Tex Mex Resturant which we would advise anyone to go. The service and food was excellent.. All the staff are very pleasant and friendly and helpful, and we will definetly be back

Researched this hotel on Trip Advisor and we were encouraged to go and try it. Absolutely no regrets. We were welcomed right from the word go, with a glass of cava and a smile, even though we arrived at 9pm. We were even told that the supermarket across the way would be shutting and the receptionist suggested we leave our luggage in a safe room by the front desk while we shopped. The apartment was fantastic, large lounge, large bedroom, "humungus" terrace and quiet. We had our room cleaned every day and the towels changed at least 3 times. The pools were all nice and clean and we were very close to one. The only bad thing I would say is that the bars were all shut between 4 and 6pm. We would certainly go again.

We spent 5 nights in the Cordial Mogán Valle Apartamentos at the start of December. Over all we found it to be really lovely with the apt being clean and very spacious. The balcony was big with a table and chairs, plus 2 sun loungers. We were self catering so I can't comment on the food. We found the staff to be exceptionally helpful and they changed our apt when we were unhappy with the first one. Puerto Mogan is lovely with both a beach and a nice little marina to walk around. It's quiet though, which is great if that's what you're after :-)

Er nettopp kommet hjem etter 3 uker på dette idylliske stedet og dette vidunderlige hotellet. Den gode atmosfæren møter deg allerede i resepsjonen. Vennlige mennesker som kan sine ting. Nyt et glass sjampanje mens du venter på tur. Selv de små får et glass med sprudlende drikke. Leilighetene er veldig fine og store, for ikke å snakke om hvor overrasket vi ble av terrassen. Her var der liggestoler pluss bord med 4 stoler. Sengene var helt supre, og det gjaldt også hodeputene. De fleste har problemer med sistnevnte, men disse var deilige. Frokosten var en opplevelse i seg selv, med mat og drikke for enhver smak. Vi fikk komponere vår egen omelett! Kjøkkensjef Sergio er gull verd! Smilende mennesker overalt! Å se Nerea ta seg av de små med lek, dans og sang, var en opplevelse! Hun gir alt! Selv gartnerne smilte og var høflige. Hit vil jeg igjen! Anbefales på det varmeste.

The staff welcomed us to the hotel and did not make any any fuss that we were late arriving there. Our room was very comfortable and had all we needed. Plenty to do in the hotel with very good entertainment. Food was of a good quality, wines in the restaurant were reasonably priced and of a good quality. Puerto Mogan is a lovely resort but in addition to the local beaches, there are plenty of walks in the mountains surrounding the valley. Inland there are some lovely villages, and there are some very spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. Rather than booking a coach transfer, it might be better to hire a car so that you can visit other towns in this attractive and interesting island

We had two very enjoyable weeks here in October. As everyone else says, it's a place for a relaxing holiday, probably not for those who want to hit the nightlife. Most apartments are one bedroom, with relatively few two bedroom units. The two bedroom version has two good sized bedrooms, two bathrooms (both with hairdryers) and ours had a huge balcony with seats for 6 around the table, 4 sun loungers, a couple of little tables, the outdoor shower, and a good array of screens and blinds that can be adjusted. Outdoor tables and chairs are good and comfortable, not wobbly plastic moulded things that stick to your legs. Not all of the two bedroom units have such a large balcony, so you may get one that has only two sun loungers and/or is shaded. Ours was overlooking the infinity pool - close enough that we rarely spent any time actually sitting by the pool, because we could have a swim then go back to our apartment to sit. We were also lucky in that we were fairly central, so not much walking and not too many lifts to get to the reception/entrance area. Because of the large balconies, the pool areas don't ever get over-crowded and we never had any trouble finding space there when we wanted it, despite some persistent sunbed baggers. Kitchen is simple but has most things you need. Microwave, but no oven, and 2 ring hob, which limits your options a bit, but that's fairly typical of such apartments. Furniture in the living room is a cut above the usual we've experienced elsewhere. A large sofa-bed that folds out to two singles, and is actually comfortable to sit on. Two comfortable chairs and plenty of cusions, so space for four or more people to sit in reasonable comfort if you do get some bad weather and have to stay in. We didn't use the television - I think you might have to get the remote control from reception, and not sure if there is a charge. We didn't use any of the bar/cafe/dining/evening entertainment facilities, so can't comment on them. We didn't use the spa facilities. They did seem ridiculously expensive, but maybe I didn't understand the price list. There's a small library area in reception where you can borrow/deposit books, but it seemed that people don't generally keep it tidy - languages are all mixed up, rather than having separate shelves, but that's not really anyone's fault - it's probably impossible to keep it organised once the rot sets in. There were relatively few English books (lots of German I think), so probably not something you can count on. I think the Kindle is killing off such libraries. Unlike many resorts, there is no problem taking your own drinks/snacks to the poolside. Of course you shouldn't take glasses to the pool area, but the supermarkets have packs of plastic cups and glasses. Do take some mugs if you want decent sized cups of coffee and tea. Our apartment had only tiny espresso cups, and when I asked if they had any larger ones they looked at me like I had two heads. We ended up buying some souvenir mugs just so we could enjoy our coffee. Do take several power adaptors. Unlike many places, there are loads of power sockets all over the apartment, so it is handy to have several adaptors for phones and gadgets. Wifi access is free - just register at reception to get an account and password. Reception was generally good, but the connection would sometimes drop or be fairly slow. Do ask for an upper level apartment if you want a larger balcony. There are also some apartments that open directly onto the lower pool areas, which would be good if you want to let the kids play in the pool while you keep half an eye on them from your apartment without you having to commit to a big excursion to the pool. The walk to the beach and harbour area is about 10-15 mins slow amble, and it is completely flat and well lit. Some reviewers have said that they thought the restaurants in that area were rather expensive, but I think that probably depends on what you are looking for. I suppose if you are looking to eat out every day and you are looking for cheap-ish pizzas and burgers, it will be expensive. If you are looking for a good quality main course of fresh fish, seafood or meat, I think the prices were very good and the quality extremely high. House wine was generally very acceptable. Starters/tapas were quite expensive and in the one place we had tapas for lunch the quality was rather poor. In most places deserts were just those over-priced manufactured ice-cream things. So we usually went for simple garlic bread starter, a proper main course and skipped desert in favour of an ice-cream or pastry from the supermarket. The restaurant Calima on the beach front deserves a special mention. Certainly not the cheapest, but the quality was extremely high, and they did do proper home-made deserts. That was our go-to-again-on-the-last-night place.

Just returned from these apartments (20/10/12) and can recommend it to any normal person - not 18-30!! We had the best of both worlds by having an apartment with seperate bedroom - more space, but had half board at the dining rooms. Food always adequate and well cooked; meat and fish cooked to personal request. Lovely views from the restaurant as a bonus. Three pools to chose from outside or a 10 min walk to a lovely beach. One pool was advertised as adults only but we always seemed to have kids in them all. (there's always somewhere in the world where it's school hols!) The sister hotel next door had quality shows every night and the drink prices were not excessive. Hotel and apartments are built on the side of a canyon/hill/slope and therefore have many steps and twelve elevators. Transfer to/from the airport is a drag; 2hours in, 2.1/4 hours return, best book a taxi. All in all brill and we hope to return.

We stayed at the Cordial Mogan Valle apartments from 29th September to 13th October 2012 on a half board basis. Being a 3* apartment you never really know what to expect but we were not disappointed. The apartment itself is the best we have stayed at for 3* - you had everything you needed with a good sized bedroom, bathroom and kitchen/living area. What made it extra special was the very large balcony that had plenty of room for a table and four chairs and two sunloungers with the added bonus of an outdoor cold shower to cool you off if you decided to sunbathe on it. The cleaning service was excellent with towells changed and beds made 5 days of the week. The down side for some people maybe that there is no air conditioning but for the time of year we went we were absolutley fine with just the 2 fans (you can hire air conditioning if needed). The food variation in the restaurant was very good and I would expect that only the VERY FUSSY would not be able to find at least one dish that they liked each day and for those people I would say go to a 5* apartment/hotel instead where you usually have multiple restaurants on the complex to choose from - at the end of the day you get what you pay for. We must give a special thank you to Eugenio the Restaurant Manager who looked after us extremely well and runs a very efficient and friendly team of staff. Also thank you to Agata our waitress who was always on the ball. As with most complexes like this the entertainment was mainly based around children which is great if you have kids with you but as we did not we did find that the kids mini disco got to us a bit after a few days but no problem we just wandered off down the sea front/harbour or to Manolos bar opposite the complex for some grown up time. As we were there for 2 weeks we did eat out a few evenings for a change of scenery and to spend some time on the sea front where there are some wonderful restaurants. Special mention to The Porto Allegra Restaurant where my husband booked for my Birthday meal-it was superb and the chef had even baked me a cake on the house as a suprise complete with candles. We can also recommend the Indian Restaurant that is opposite the apartments, we had a really good meal including a shared starter, 2 main courses with nan bread and a bottle of wine which came to a very reasonable 42euros especially as the portions were large and we took home a doggy bag. All in all the holiday was good value for the money, very relaxing and we would definitely return. John & Julie (the coconut couple)

It was our third time at Cordial Mogan Valle and we took two other couples with us this time. Again a fantastic time. Excellent staff and apartments. Loved the resort as usual. Needed paramedics early one evening after husband had bad ankle cut in room the staff were outstanding, reacted straight away calling them for us, one of the cleaners came into clean up the apartment and each day we had a telephone cal from reception asking on his progress and sent us a bowl of fruit up. Can't speak highly enough of the staff. Can't wait to return next year. Love Puerto Mogan. The staff in the bars welcomed us again and all were very friendly. Apart from husband's ankle accident can't find anything negative to say about apartments, staff or resort. Would recommend canary transfers for transfer to resort and back, excellent service.

The Cordial Mogan Valle is a great place to relax.I cant believe anyone could give anything less than 5/5 the location is fantastic and very chilled.Its only a 15 minute walk to the marina which is full of excellent resteraunts at a reasonable price.We stayed at the cordial valle for the first week in october and it was hot every day which us why we chose to hire air con for the room @60 euro for the week(its a must). When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with a nice glass of champagne and my request was met by the nice lady on reception which was for a high up room(810)which had bigger balconys than the lower floors.The rooms are spacious modern and very clean.There are 3 pools here all of which are great,one pool seemed to be mainly for kids which after the first day we then found the infinity pool which was lovely and quiet with plenty of beds all day long.This suited us as we just wanted a relaxed weeks break in the sun before a long winter ahead in the Uk,and thats what Cordial Valle gave us. Some people seem to moan about the airport transfer but on arrival we found it ok 40mins but on the way back we had about 10 pickups which added an hour onto the journey :( Across from the entrance to the hotel is the supermarket and shopping centre which has a nice indian resteraunt.5mins walk towards the marina on the right hand side you will find Zona Verde which is where the food is cooked on a wood burning stove(not BBQ)the food is out of this world and you will need to book,dont worry about the look of it as you approach because once you go round to the front there is a lovely terrace with overhanging trees draped in fairy lights.The price was good for the quality starters fresh galic prawnsx2 fillet steak x 2 vodka&coke x 2 bottles of wine x 2=87euros and all cooked fresh in front of you. We are now planning our next trip to Cordial mogan valle after being too porto rico the last 3 times this place is our Favourate.....

went 28th september for 11 days travel republic/ryanair.me and the other half have just had the most relaxing holiday,weather great,resort quiet but great.the we stayed appt in 640,all you could want for the price £500 for 10 nights.clean,basic kitchen stuff,but your out all day your not living there.agree with all the reviews about the curry house opposite bang on dinner.the restaurants on the beach front v good ok bit samey but 45-60 euros food and few light ales(went lanzarote last year paying 60-80 euros a meal),back to appts,staff v friendly,layout little bit strange but got it after 1 day,would def go back. tex mex restaurant at the far right of beach 1.5 euro a pint and the same next door,cafe maritime good breakfasts/omelettes.had 2 meals in the marina cafe de mogan very nice and the irish 1 (dennehys i think) also v good. the only thing that cheesed me off was the car hire from GOLDCAR do not use them it is a bloody rip off.all payed for this end,but when you go to the desk they want extra insurance 66 euro and a massive 91 euro to fill the tank back up. a ford fiesta cannot cost 91 euro to fill up but the woman was having none of it,just wanted to get to resort so payed extra 157 euro on top of £110 on original booking will not use again.other then that fantastic holiday

We chose the Mogan Valle based on reviews we'd read and weren't disappointed. We requested a quiet apartment in advance and were accommodated in the north end of the complex which was by far the quietest area. The apartments are huge, spotlessly clean and decorated to a very high standard. Nice details such as lights coming on when you open wardrobe doors, quality beds/bedding and magnified shaving mirror in the bathroom. Safe and air con were extra - we went without air con (there's a ceiling fan in each room which was fine once you got used to the noise!), and the safe was 14 euros for a week which we thought was reasonable for peace of mind. We were on the first floor (room 508) and had a vast balcony surrounded by palm trees overlooking the north pool (by far the quietest of the three pools - no kids area, easy to get sunbeds any time of day). The only downside was no bar/bar service - poolside cocktails and fresh coffee would've been a bonus - but it was less than a minute to nip up to our apartment to stock up on drinks/snacks and there was a vending machine with cold soft drinks, crisps/sweets etc. There's a big supermarket right opposite reception which had everything you could need at reasonable prices, including freshly baked bread, fresh fruit, salad etc. It's a 10-15 minute walk to the beach and about a 20 minute walk to the harbour where the nicer restaurants are. Zona Verde (by far the best steak we had) was about 5-10 min walk on the pedestrianised path to the beach. Don't be put off by the back of the building - the delicious food is cooked fresh on a wood burning barbecue on a secluded patio area. All in all it was a lovely place to stay in a pretty little resort - highly recommended if you want sunshine and a bit of peace and quiet.

Our 2nd visit to the Cordial Mogan Valle and enjoyed it all, a lovely apartment and really like the spacious balcony with table chairs and sunbeds. We were half board plus and thought there was a good selection of food and the included drinks with dinner in our opinion were excellent value. We had a hire car from the airport and never had a problem parking on the streets around the hotel. The free wifi throughout the hotel was an added bonus. Must also mention the staff from the friendly welcome at reception, the restaurant and bar staff and the lovely lady who kept our room spotless, it all made up to a lovely relaxing holiday. Thank you to everyone, hope to be back one day.

Ive just come back yesterday from this hotel , we had a lovely time . Just a few things about this hotel , its 20 Min's walk from the hotel to the harbour and 15 Min's to the front. We walked it everyday and its fine and its a pedestrian walk way . The supermarket is over the road and i found it great and better and cheaper than the Spar in the centre and just as large . We found the lifts ok the map we were given was easy to understand and found our room very quick on the top floor as we asked for a high room, the rooms were very large and the balcony even bigger room 921 was great only down side as it was 24 at night and only a fan on the ceiling sleeping was a little difficult and this would be our only complaint , but we would come again maybe later in the year when its cooler the staff were all great and very helpfull, not that we required any help . This hotel was value for money and if you dont mind a 20 min walk its value for money and very very clean . Thanks for a lovely holiday

We went to Gran Canaria at the begining of september and stayed at Cordial Mogan Valle, I went with my husand and brother-in-law. We stayed for 10 days, it is by far one of the best holidays we have had and the apartments themselves were outstanding. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would thouroughly recommend the Cordial Mogan Valle to all of my friends. We would give it a massive 10/10 and will definately return to holiday here again. The rooms were to a very high standard and very spacious as was the balcony.

My partner and I and our 2 children aged 2 and 8 stayed here with another family of 4 in August. On arrival we were treated to a glass of wine and the children orange juice, staff were very friendly and accommodating giving us 2 1 bed apartments with huge Balconys and great view as requested. It is true that the complex is a bit confusing at first changing lifts 3 times just to get up to your room but once you get use to it it's not a problem. Apartment was lovely and large, huge balcony, beds were ok, full bathroom and no air con, we found that if we left 1 of the electric keys in the slot all the time even when we left the room it kept it so much cooler and at night open balcony door we found it bearable, the fans were sometimes noisy but I found if i switched it off let it stop then switch it back on again the noise went away. The pools are lovely keep very clean as is the complex, kids didnt use the clubs but loved the ballpit there. It's about a 10-15 min walk into town, very quiet and shops close early eve but restaurants are open until about 11-12, the beach and marina are lovely with lots of nice restaurants to choose from. All in all had a lovely relaxing 2 weeks holiday and would return again.

Me and my husband stayed at Cordial Mogan Valle for one veek in January 2009. It was a great holiday. We had an 2-roomapartment and it was very good. It had a large balcony with sunbeds, shower, chairs and a table - perfect for a relaxing holiday! The breakfast was super!! They had a large selection of food that was very tasty- both hot and cold. We also ate lunch a couple of times in the snack bar and the food was great! The service from the staff was also very good! They even came to our room to check ithat everything was good :-)

This is our third time back to these apartments. Safe, secure and perfect for children. The staff are friendly and cannot be more helpful. The apartments are very well equipped, and spotlessly clean in all areas. The rooms ca be very hot, even when the sun has gone down, I would therefore suggest hiring air con on arrival.

Have just returned from a fabulous weeks holiday at the apartments. The staff are friendly and couldn't be more helpful. The apartments are very clean and well equipped. We agree with other reviews that the rooms are hot at night with no air conditioning but apparently you can hire a portable unit for the week. It is well located and the resort itself is very pleasant. We would definitely recommend!

We recently stayed in these beautiful apartments for 10 days. My husband and I were travelling with our 14 month old son. Our apartment was a 1 bed and was lovely and spacious, modern and spotless. The balcony is enormous so our son had loads of room to ramble around. The main pool area is beautiful and we never had a problem getting a sun lounger at any time of day. We saw the infinity pool but never went there as there was no kiddies pool...I believe there is a third pool somewhere on the complex but we never went looking for it. We didn't eat in the hotel at all so I can't comment on that. There is a great supermarket (Hiper Dino) across the road that stocked everything you could possibly need, and also a Spar about a 5 minute walk down the pedestrianised walk way. The village/marina of Puerto Mogan is about a 15 minute slow stroll away and the whole place is very buggy and baby friendly. Restaurants in Mogan were all beautiful. We averaged at around €50 per night for 2 starters and 2 mains as well as either a bottle of wine or a drink or two per person. I would only recommend Mogan to those who are looking for a very laid back, relaxed holiday. Everything in the village shuts down early I believe and in the apartments even the balcony light automatically switches off around 10.50pm - this is a bit much I think, if you are out enjoying a drink on your balcony you are suddenly plunged into darkness! Overall I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these apartments. We have stayed in various apartment complexes in Lanzarote over the years and nowhere comes close to the Cordial Mogan Valle in terms of cleanliness and just over all satisfaction.

would i return? YES most definately,and that says it all really.lovely apartments,clean and welcoming.didnt use the cooking facilities as we ate out all the time,also cannot comment on the food service as we were self catering.did try to get a drink in the bar one night after returning early from our meal out,about 10;30 but felt like we were not welcome as furniture was being stacked up,so we decided to give it a miss and chilled on the balcony instead. staff in reception very friendly and the cleaning staff are wonderful.glass of fizz on check in most welcome after thomas cook delayed our flights. for a quick snack with all football matches shown try "el ecuentro"lovely host,directly facing the apts down some steps next to the supermarket. we ate at "la linterna" 3 times in the week,which shows how good the steaks were,it is on the beachfront 3rd from the very end(tex mex) steaks average 15 euros and were the biggest i have ever been served.only downside,on our last night the waiter brought our bill,i put 60 euros on the plate,he took it away and didnt return,bill was 42 euros,when we eventually called him back for our change he tried to say we had never had the bill!!!needless to say we didnt tip this night and it did spoil it a little bit but it was our last night so we got over it. we also went in" casito mediterraneo"and can see why this is voted number 1,the trio of fish is second to none,wish we had gone back there for our last meal! also tried dennehys irish bar,lovelyand friendly staff. bus station half way between the apts and the harbour,got the bus to las palmas one day 15 euros each,lovely trip but very hair raising driving around the mountains.the ferry at the harbour is 14 euros return to anfi,takes just over an hour and is a lovely sail,10 euros return to puerto rico but didnt get off there.had lunch in anfi then got a later ferry back,lovely resort. back to the apts,we were lucky our apt was on the same level as the infinity pool so 1 lift only,but we did have a wander around the complex to try to make sense of it,it is complicated but you soon find your way around. 2 laundry room with 2 washers and 2 dryers in each,1 near the quiet pool and 1 near the family pool,i'm not sure if powder is provided as i didnt use them but it was 4 euros for the washing machine which would be handy for a family. the balconies were in the sun for all the afternoon till it set over the mountain at 19:10 every evening,only then was it cool enough to start getting ready to shower and go out,so very hot and even though i only got back yesterday i'm missing it already !!! market day is friday,my hubby decided that was the day he was going sea fishing(50 euros from the harbour for 6 hours) it got really busy.sat on the balcony watching coach after coach arrive as it is a trip from other resorts.stalls started at the bus station and went all through the village and all the way around the harbour HUGE market,very enjoyable but i preferred the sleepy atmosphere of the village on the other days.

Just back from a weeks self catering. Great welcome on our arrival together with a wee glass of fizzy wine. Our apartment was on the ground floor and looked out onto the pool which was ideal for us. Hotel staff were great. Room fantastic and cleaned frequently. Lovely and peaceful which may not suit anyone looking for a lively, upbeat holiday, no music or entertainment after 11pm. Great wee supermarket a stones throw away from hotel and is adequate for necessities and a large Spar Supermarket also nearby. Local produce tasted lovely. Plenty of restaurants at the Marina, although we never used them. Indian Restaurant across the road was good, prices comparable to home. Everything on the level which makes walking easier for the less abled. One of the other guests described Puerto Mogan as 'Pensioners Paradise' although there were a few families with young kids who appeared to be having a good time. Overall a fantastic holiday. Only downside was that we booked for a week. Will definately be back in May 2013 ,this time for a fortnight.

Acabamos de llegar de pasar una semana en sólo alojamiento en los apartamentos Cordial Mogán Valle con nuestros dos hijos y con mi hermano, mi cuñada y sus dos hijas y tengo que decir que no puedo poner ninguna pega seria, ni respecto a la calidad de los apartamentos, que estaban muy bien equipados, ni respecto al trato del personal, muy atento y servicial en todo momento. Por comentar un par de detalles, el día que llegamos (sobre la una de la mañana, nos dejaron una garrafa de agua de 5 litros y un litro de leche para poder preparar el biberón de la mañana y simplemente nos pidieron que se lo repusiéramos del centro comercial que hay enfrente (Hiperdino). Los domingos y los jueves no hacen habitaciones, pero la verdad es que no nos ha parecido un contratiempo: era evidente que el resto de los días le dedicaban el tiempo suficiente a la limpieza de los apartamentos, ya que estaba todo impecable. También coincidió que durante esta estancia fueron los cumpleaños de nuestros hijos y nos regalaron un botella de vino blanco cada día. Teniendo en cuenta que el cumpleaños era de niños, el regalo podría haber sido algo para ellos, pero en todo caso es un detalle. Respecto a la ubicación de los apartamentos, decir que en menos de 15 minutos caminando tranquilamente por una amplia avenida peatonal se llega a la playa y el puerto de Mogán. Nos pareció curioso que las luces de las terrazas de los apartamentos (muy espaciosas y con acceso tanto desde el salón-cocina, como desde la habitación) no se pudiesen controlar desde el propio apartamento, sino que es el propio establecimiento el que las enciende (creo recordar que sobre las 8:30 de la noche) y las apaga (a las 11 en punto). Supongo que eso contribuirá a que el complejo sea tan tranquilo como es. Por poner un par de peros, decir que se echa en falta el aire acondicionado en las habitaciones, ya que cuando hace mucho sol, los ventiladores que hay en el salón y en la habitación se quedan escasos, y que se echa en falta un parque infantil más completo que los que hay. En definitiva, si volvemos a Gran Canaria (no hay dos sin tres), este complejo será la primera opción que barajemos

Just got back yesterday from a week at these apartments. We had a really lovely holiday and would recommend Mogan Valle apartments to anyone looking for a rest! Our apartment was spacious, and spotlessly clean. Some tiny areas looked a little tired, but that did not matter one bit. We did not use the cooking facilities as we were half board, but the fridge was nice to chill our wine. The fresh melon from the supermarket was amazing - best I have ever tasted, and that too was nice to eat for lunch chilled from the fridge. As most reviews point out the balcony area is huge, with a table and chairs and 2 loungers. Good shade is optional from the canopies. The pool areas were fantastic - and we always managed to get a sun bed. Plenty of umbrellas too, for those liking a bit of shade. The food was really good - freshly cooked meat or fish to order, and masses of fresh salads etc. Breakfasts just lovely too! There is a very nice area outside to sit and have a drink in the evening, or a stroll down to the beach and harbour is something we enjoyed after dinner. By far the best thing about the place is the staff team, they are all so friendly.

This is the first time I have stayed at Sandy Golf Bungalows and would definately stay again. Everything runs smoothly, accommodation is very clean, private and the surroundings peaceful and beautiful. The pool was never very busy, always clean and tidy. We stayed half board and cannot fault the food. Very good value for money. Staff were all friendly and helpful. I would recommend this accommodation for those wanting a quiet break away from the hustle and bustle of the town. A free shuttle bus will take you to Maspalomos and Playa del Ingles, taxis are cheap if you want to return earlier of go in the evenings (about 4 euros).

We had an excellent, laid-back holiday in a wonderful little resort in a lovely apartment complex which easily met and in some cases exceeded our expectations. We chose this holiday based on favourable reviews and we were certainly not disappointed. The resort itself is small but is beautiful mix of beach, harbour, quaint little streets and even a modern shopping centre. The claim of "Venice of the Canaries" is probably pushing it a tad - Yes, there is a canal of sorts and there are a few pretty little bridges over it, and yes I suppose I can understand why they push the feature but it doesn't stretch more than a few hundred metres and I believe it it designed to disperse rain (when it comes) into the sea. We used the beach quite lot as it was easy to get sun-beds and umbrella's whatever time of day and the bars and eateries are all very close. The beach itself is small but big enough for a pleasant atmosphere with the usual water-sports available and safe swimming (the area is hemmed in by a breakwater and harbour). We ate at a different establishment each night and were seldom disappointed. We recommend 'Porto Alegre', 'Zoo' and 'The Irish Tavern' (not a tavern at all but a nice little friendly bar/restaurant). There were a few that were probably not value for money and the food not quite up to scratch (can't remember the names) but overall the prices were reasonable and have no major complaints. The Mogan Valle Apartments were big, spotlessly clean and well equipped. The staff were friendly, efficient and clearly pleased for the custom from the receptionists to the cleaners with everyone greeting you with a smile whatever their function or time of day. We had B&B so can only comment on the breakfast but have no complaints there as the choice, quality and amount of food was hugely impressive as was the friendliness and efficiency of the restaurant staff so even at the busiest times we were able to get a table. There are three pools but only one has a bar and in our view it would have been nice to have one in each. Our only other minor negative is that there is no air conditioning although portable units are available for hire - we did hire one but it didn't work properly and sent it back and in any case we soon got used to the hotter nights and slept reasonably well. Overall it was a marvellous, relaxing ten day holiday and the place was populated by others who also enjoy and respect the same. In many ways it was unbelievably quiet in the evenings considering it was peak summer but we were reliably informed by the bar and restaurant staff that it gets a lot busier in autumn and winter by influx of Scandinavians and Spanish mainlanders. If you are after a busy, boisterous holiday with loud bars, clubs etc then this is definitely not the place for you but if you want relaxation in a complex and resort with enough bars/restaurants to be able to eat somewhere different every night and where we didn't hear one single English swear word the whole time we were there then you will not be disappointed with Puerto de Mogan and the Cordial Mogan Valle Apartments.

In August we went to the Cordial Morgan Valle for our family hols this year and it was brilliant the kids enjoyed every minute of it. Estelle and Pedro the entertainment staff were great they kept everyone entertained adults and children with games and compertitions throughout the day. We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was very spacious and kept spotless by the cleaners. We went half board and we all agreed that the food on offer was very good the staff from the maids to the reception were great and would do every thing they could to help. This was the best family holiday we have had and would definetly recommend it

Visited in July this year at start of kids summer holidays. We only went for a week as the children are still young, wished we had booked for longer. We hired a car as we like to get out of airport quick, can't be doing with long coach rides with two little ones. Really easy to get to resort, roads clearly signposted and roads in good condition. Brilliant welcome, very friendly all our requests made prior to travel ( via emailing hotel directly) were granted, given welcome drink of champagne or orange juice too! Room spacious, modern and clean. It was cleaned nearly every day we were there with fresh towels etc. Accommodation and facilities were great very geared up for families with children but would suit other people too. Never an issue getting a sun lounger, pools warm and clean. Animation staff worked very hard and were great with adults and particularly the children, they were never forceful or a nuisance and the activities didn't get in the way o any relaxing. Although much smaller outside area than upper level apartments, we had a ground floor room. This was brill as didn't have to worry about safety issues for the children, it wasn't overlooked and handy to nip back to room from pool area. The resort itself is beautiful, beach 10 min walk down pedestrian walk way, so very safe for children to have a run up and down and lovely for an evening stroll, supermarket across the road. Beach and sea clean and calm, marina lovely too. Very quiet place :) loved it ! Not a cheap holiday but( not being snobby) non chavy. Hope it stays this way- looking to book for next year.

Just got back from a weeks stay at these apartments and we loved it! Me and my boyfriend went, i'm only 19 and my boyfriend 22, we have very high expectations and wanted a fairly cheap hotel. and we loved it! Was much more then we expected. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and really tried hard with the language barier and you are greated with a glass of champaign or a drink on arrival. The whole place was very clean and well presented. Our apartment was amazing! very big, clean and kitted out well, with your own double balcony and sun beds and they would be cleaned 5 days a week which was nice! the only down side is there is no oven if you are self catering and there is no air-con in the rooms just fans, which worked well but not as good as air-con although you can rent it out air-con if you wish. The hotel says it only has wi-fi in the repception but we still got it in our room and by the pool which was on the 6th floor! it was a little tricky to find your way round at first but when you get the hang of it its easy. There are 3 pools so its good to see which one you like best. We spent all our time at the infinity pool which was right next to us. its was lovely!! and a nice touch. The town of Puerto Mogan is lovely! not to busy and very quiet. it's in a valley so its nice to feel on your own. The main bit was only a 10 minute walk from the hotel. There are lots lovely resturants and nice little shops. The beach was gorgeous to! lots of sunbeds to pick which were very cheap, it did get busy but all beachs get busy! lovely sand! Very good transport system! buses running every half an hour and take you anywhere for nothing, the most we spent was 17 euro for both of us and that was to get all the way across the island. Over all it was a lovely place and would highly recomend this place to anyone thinking about going.

After having been to Gran Canaria several times over the last couple of decades, I thought we were done with this island. But when my husband found this hotel, we thought we'd give it one more try. We were NOT disappointed! Puerto Mogan is nothing like the busy, tacky resorts you find in Playa Ingles or Puerto Rico! If you are looking for nightlife and late nights, this is not the place for you. But if you want a qiuet, relaxing holiday with plenty of good restaurants and a charming town centre, come to Puerto Mogan! Cordial Mogan Valle is a big hotel, and as people have commented on; a bit tricky to navigate at first. But you quickly get the hang of it. We had a ground floor apartment, and it was spacious, clean and comfortable. I think, however, next time we go, we will ask for a flat higher up. Not just because of the view, but the balconies were huge up there! We spent most days at what was known as the quiet pool, and it really was. Some times during the day there were almost nobody in the pool! Also, there were hardly any lilos or other inflatables so you could actually swim! The only downside for our two 9 year olds was that the pools were a bit deep for them. We went self catering, which was fine, the supermarket across the road had everything we needed. And although the apartments have no oven, we managed just fine. I don't go on holidays to be slaving over a hot stove! Besides, Puerto Mogan have so many good, reasonably priced restaurants, you'll be spoilt for choice! Have to mention Zona Verde, we ate there twice and the food was fantastic! Did not try the hotel restaurant, so cannot comment. Overall, a great family holiday and we will definately be returning!

Hemos pasado una semana en estos apartamentos y la verdad que lo hemos pasado muy bien. Los apartamentos son muy amplios y tienen una terraza amplia. Fuimos en media pensión por lo que pudimos comprobar que el servicio de comedor era muy bueno, gran variedad de comida y de muy buena calidad. El personal muy amable y atento, la verdad que eso se agradece y te hace la estancia más placentera(que lo oigan los jefes) eso te hace recomendar el sitio a tus amigos e incluso te hace repetir. En definitiva un lugar encantador para descansar en familia y llevarte un buen recuerdo.

Arrived back from mogan valle a few days ago and have to say we had a brilliant two weeks of sun, fun and relaxation. Could not fault the apartment apart from the fact that it was hot at night without air conditioning but like most people we got used to it and left the doors to balcony open all night. This did not spoil our holiday in the least. The apartment was spacious and cleaned most days with towels and bed linen changed very regularly, overall very comfortable. the balcony had loads of room and we had lovely views to the sea and the mountains. We had breakfast included in our package and the choices available every day were excellent. Food was of a very good standard and empty dishes were constantly being replaced. All staff we encountered were very pleasant. The day time entertainers were just that -entertaining- the kids all loved them particularly Pedro. There was something on for kids and adults every day apart from Mondays. We visited the 3 pools, there was hapily no mad rush ro get up to save sun beds, usually several available when we wandered down after breakfast. We ate out most evenings, great choice of restaurants by the beach and the marina and overall provided good quality food, friendly service and good value for money. Everywhere does seem to close up around eleven but this suited us fine. We wandered back to the apartment and had our own few drinks. The market on fri was worth a visit full of the usual - bags, belts, jewellery - some bargains to be had if you are prepared to barter with the looky looky men. Took the boat to Puerto Rico, lovely trip but did not like the resort much. Mogan a far nicer place - quaint and friendly with a real laid back atmosphere. We would definitely return to mogan valle again!

This is probably the best holiday we've had in the Canary Islands. Friendly staff and roomy apartments. However there was a problem in the first week as there is no Air conditioning and there was a heatwave reaching 40 degrees. The beds were not the most comfortable but that does not take anything from this resort. We stayed in J block as requested after a tip from a Trip advisor review. The views were superb! Huge balconies as mentioned before. It can be difficult to find your room but once you've been there a few days its no problem.

We went here at the start of July and had requested (as advised) a high room. We got room number i533 which was perfectly positioned for the infinity pool as well as daytime sunbathing in private and beers on the balcony in the evening sunshine. The apartments were so spacious and balconies were indeed fabulous - totally superb. Having read numerous reviews I agree that there is minimal you can cook without an oven but it was so hot we wouldn't have bothered anyway. With a fab supermarket literally outside the apartments we dined on fresh goodies for breakfast, yummy salads and gorgeous home made sandwiches for lunch; walking down to the town centre every night for dinner. Having read differing reviews on the length of the walk into town we timed it (!!!) and it is a 10 minute brisk walk, 15 minute stroll. Max. Those who said 25 minutes must have been rolypolying or crawling down the boulevard - which is (for the record) flat, well maintained, clean and a pleasure to frequent every day :) Restaurants in the centre - I am frightful at remembering names but the one down the far left hand side, La Lintera (or something?) was our favourite with Zoo in second place. There are plenty of restaurants to chose from and we found them all to be reasonably priced. The beach is lovely and clean, with sunbeds to rent for 3 euros for the whole day. The town is lovely and feels very safe. It is however really quiet, everything stops at 11pm so if you are looking for a few wild nights out this isnt the place for you!! We are a young (ish!) couple so we missed maybe just one bar with a bit of live music or something but our main priority was to chill out and rest - which we achieved so for us it was perfect. There are three swimming pools and whilst we like children, we wished the infinity pool was adults only as the kids had the other two to splash around and scream in! There were also a few issues with people reserving sunloungers which some days the management were on top of, others not so much. But these really were minor issues, we had a fabulous time. The place was spotless and given the price, location and facilities, it suited us perfectly. PS: We didnt rent the aircon units and just slept with the balcony doors open as there weren't any mosquitoes (which made a lovely change!!).

We stayed here in July, having booked through BargainHolidaysOnline for a very cheap price. The Hotel is in Puerto de Mogan, a relatively quiet enclave of Gran Canaria. It has a nice beach, and lovely little port area with great, cheap restaurents. The hotel itself is excellent. Our room was well-designed, laid out, and very clean. The shower was powerful, and the balcony was huge. The two pools were great, a little busy during the day but in the afternoon the infinity pool always had a sun lounger or two available and has great views. Staff were helpful, and there is also a little book area for exchanging books in the lobby - I found this useful when I ran out. Only minuses - no oven in the room (despite self catering), and no air-con. But for the price we paid you really cant complain. An excellent stay and highly recommended.

Just got back from Cordial Mogan Valle. Reception staff are friendly and efficient. Welcome champagne or orange juice on arrival. Our room wasnt quite ready so we chilled in reception. Room was lovely, no aircon but ceiling fans gave a welcome cool breeze. My son slept on sofa bed which was very creaky and so decided to sleep either on the sofa itself or on mattress on floor. Our beds were singles pushed together. We asked for mattress toppers which were put on bed within the hour. I noticed that the light swithc was coming off in the bathroom and reported it to reception. We went for a walk and when we returned to the room less than an hour later it had been fixed. The balcony was big with loungers, table and chairs as others have mentioned. Dining room was fine, you are allocated a table for whole stay. Buffet meals were good, not always things that went with each other but on the whole you could usually find something you liked. I did notice that the tables werent cleared very quickly between courses but it was very busy and the waiters/waitresses did their best and were very friendly and helpful. We booked bed and breakfast through travelzoo and were upgraded to half board plus which included drinks with dinner......as many as you want! If you ask for wine, you get the whole bottle! You had a choice of 3 pools, we chose to stay by the infinity pool as it was quieter....it is supposed to be adults only but this wasn't the case. There was entertainment every evening...we only went to the Abba tribute which we enjoyed. All music is finished by 11 so you are able to sleep...if you can with the heat...we slept with the patio doors open as it was so hot. Only problem with this is that our apartment overlooked kiddies pool with a water fountain which stayed on all night...not good if you are a light sleeper like me...add this to the heat and the whirr of the fan and didnt really get a good nights sleep. By hey...I could rest by the pool in the day so not a problem. As for Puerto Mogan itself.... absolutely beautiful. A nice flat walk into the the village and marina....very pretty.....loads of restaurants to choose from although we only had drinks in them as we had dinner at hotel. Supermarket near hotel and a spar a few minutes away. There is an excellant shop which sells perfume, cosmetics etc at really good prices in the village. There is also a perfume shop in the small shopping centre opposite the hotel but it is more pricey that the one in the village. We had a transfer by taxi from airport which cost £99 return for 3 of us...abs excellant service and only 40 minutes compared to 2.5 - 3 hours by shuttle bus. Hair raising journey around the mountains but well worth it. We went on a boat trip to Puerto Rico...£10 euros each. Lovely boat trip but hated Puerto Rico. Watch out for scratchcard people, we won a gold prize and so agreed to go to look at hotel for 1.5 hours. We did get lunch and a drink, 2 t shirts a bottle of bubbly and free taxi ride but they want you to sign up for something similar to time share. Checked them out on google and they are a scam...feel sorry for people who got their credit cards out while we were there so beware! All in all a fab holiday, would certainly return

Just come back from a 10 night stay at the cordial Valle and we had a great time! We got there quite late and finding the room was a little tricky as the lift system is a little complex but once you find it you soon get the hang of where your going! The appartments are huge there was just me and my boyfriend so plenty of space for 2 in a 1 bed appartment infact there would have been plenty of space if we had children too. The balcony was huge! Two sun loungers and a table and chairs we spent a lot of time on the balcony. I was a little worried about the fact there isn't a sea view but the view of the mountains was amazing, needn't have worried :) we stayed in room 908, I would advise getting a high up room if you want a larger sunnier balcony. We had the sun on our balcony from 10.30am until the sun when down over the mountains at about 7.30pm! The rooms were clean and the maids came 5 days a week, everyone very friendly! We didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on that. The pools were big and clean but we struggled to get a lounger most days. The location was great it was a 10-15 minute walk to the beach front along a pedestrianised walk way, there are shops and a few bars along the way! There were plenty of resturants along the beech front and the marina would recommend them all, we ate out every night and had 10 lovely meals! If your looking for a nightlife this maybe not the place for you most places are closed by 11 with no late night bars, it was exactly what we were looking for, relaxed and chilled out. We would definatly recommend the cordial Valle and would definatly return not a bad thing to say about the place at all!

Puerto de Mogan is a lovely quiet resort and these apartments are in a pleasant location just 10 minutes walk from the centre and beach. I have never before seen hotel restaurant staff laughing and smiling so much - they're fantastic! Most speak fluent English and German (and Spanish obviously!), and seem genuinely pleased that you're having a good time. The food is pretty good too, and they offer a package with free drinks at dinner which is incredible value - and the wine's nice too. My only criticism is the lack of air conditioning, but I hired a portable A/C unit (at extra cost) and that was fine. Everything else was great. We also found a fantastic bar / restaurant (Mogan Mar - it's the last one as you walk away from the town along the sea front) where the staff were very friendly and the beer was cheap! Food was good too.

Booked thru a third party so my request for top floor apartment had been overlooked. Advise to email or telephone directly regarding booking requests. The manager was able to move my family to level 9 and stated that "If your happy I'm happy" Superb. Apartment large includes kitchen, dining area, sofa bed, TV and patio doors to balcony. Bathroom has shower and bath. Other room had double bed fitted wardrobes and patio doors to balcony. Balcony large with 2 loungers 4 chairs and a table. Outdoor shower also with ajustable canopy's also for more or less shade to suit. If self catering kitchen has 4 bowls, plates, cups, glasses, pots and pans, knives/forks and lots of other stuff but no corkscrew! Fridge good size, cooking hob and microwave. Safe only 14 euros for 1 week. Main Pool very good and scenic, inflatables allowed(there are other smaller pools also. Good loungers and look out for the animation team who will ask children and adults to take part if they like. No cost. Activities include water polo, pool games( games are brief so do not be put off and the pool is still available for personal use), archery amongst others. I slept thru the fan noise but a light sleeper may not. We did not request air con requires emptying. The apartment in general was very quiet even in the late evening when we could sit out in the balcony and watch the stars. Overall excellent complex with friendly helpful staff.

Arrived back yesterday after an amazing holiday! After a tiring flight a lengthy transfer, the service of the receptionist staff made it so much better, cold drinks on arrival and an excellent briefing about the apartments and where to find everything. Although we were the last stop on the transfer, it was well worth it, I was anxious when driving from Las Palma's airport as alot of the resorts we drove through looked alot like concrete jungles, when you arrive into Mogan the beauty of the resort is mindblowing. We were on the 4th floor (above the infinity pool) and the apartment was beautiful. To the right of our balcony was an incredible mountain backdrop where you could watch the sun dissapear behind in the evenings and to the left you could see the town right down with the beach almost in view. The supermarket was only a two minute walk away and provide all the essentials for our holiday. We spent a lot of time at the bars on the beach front and we were so shocked to find a pint of beer was only 1.50 euros! After being to mainland Spain and being exceptionally pleased, this place is a whole new level, best holiday we have been on ever!

Just got back from cordial apartments, 3 star? - rubbish - We have stayed in worse 5 star!!! champagne on arrival by extremely friendly and efficient staff. given map to apartment, which helped as it is a bit of a maze. We have travelled all over the world and it is the first time ever that it has got a 'WOW!!!!!!!!!!!' out of us! the apartment was fantastic. Very modern and well equiped kitchen, with hob, microwave, kettle, toaster, coffee maker, and the all important beer fridge. Dining table also. the lounge was really nice. with bed settee. and doors onto balcony. Bathroom well equiped with bath and shower, also hairdryer. Bedroom very modern with built in double wardrobes - wth lights, including a safe - 2.5 eu per day, door onto balcony. talking about the balcony, well that was the second 'WOW!!!!!!!!' double length, double width balcony. Table, 4 chairs, plus 2 sunloungers - and a shower!!! .Whole balcony was covered with retractable sun blinds. Definately 4 star so far. We were half board so we were a bit apprehensive about what the food would be like. well, that was the third 'WOW!!!!!!!' Buffet style with absolutely everything you could imagine, plenty of the usual salad and cold meats but with at least 5 meat dishes, hot veg ans sides. also there was a grill where you selected your own meat or fish, at least 4 choices, and they cooked it for you - the first night i had entrecote steak!! Sweets and fruit galore. Plenty for the kids, burgers, fish fingers, proper hot dogs and differant Pastas. Drinks available, beer 2.5 eu bottle. If you want wine buy a bottle, about 1/3 price of single glasses. The whole place is spotless and all the dining staff were great. Transfer from airport 2hrs 40 mins, back nearly 3 hrs. Next day we explored, there are 3 pools, the 'right hand' one thro gate - room key card -outside hotel, kids pool with water play area and pool bar - bar closed whilst we were there. On 3rd floor, lift from reception, is adult pool, plenty of sunbeds, plenty of German towels as well!!! Past this pool down left is second family area pool, all well maintained and exceptionally clean - only bad bit was people taking and leaving glasses all over the place. The beach area is great, about a 10 min walk away, along a flat plaza. The hotel and in fact the whole resort is wheelchair friendly, even the beach has ramps and special wheelchair shelter. Sheltered cove with lovely sandy beach Plenty of bars and cafes. food cheap, TAPAS fantastic, Last 2 cafes along best value and selling pint for 1.5 eu!! Try sunset over Tenerife from the 'Lighthouse' restaurant over the quay. Really quiet and relaxing, there is a 11:00 pm 'curfew' on loud music so no clubs or 'booming' bars, - peaceful., - even the balcony lights go out at 11pm!!! The whole experience was fantastic, but....there is always a but....2 observations, no air conditioning, ceiling fans in all rooms, ok but i can see they might struggle if it was really hot. Also, although you can make it kid free during the day, there is nowhere to sit and have quiet drink at night. the only sitting area is right next to the kids playground, and the kids entertainment starts at about 8pm. Still, just go downtown!! Altogether a great experience and fantastic value all round. OH, ps, Canaries are outside EU so don't forget your duty frees, don't bother going out there as spirits and cigs are cheaper there, 22eu carton, 12eu a litre. Have a great time!!!

Great Hotel. We are pensioners and took our 15 year old grandaughter with us for a last minute, cheap break away. Apartments were very spacious with a huge balcony. View were stunning. Very clean. Food was good always something to choose from. lovely pool area which was very clean with nice sun beds. Loungers on balcony as well which was great as had sun shine from morning to evening. Only down side was that we had a heat wave while we were there and the rooms have no air conditioning only ceiling fans which just circulate the hot air. Also there was no evening entertainment which was a shame as there was not much to do outside. Overall had a great time and would recommend for all ages. Great value for money.

Stayed at the Cordial Mogan Valle for a week. Food was great and very friendly staff especially Eugenio who made you feel very welcome at meal times. Rooms are very warm and is a bit expensive to have to higher air con for the room 60 Euros for the week. Also a shame that the facilitys in the hotel such as gym and spa you have to pay extra for also would have been nice to have been told a bit more info about hotel. Hotel layout is a bit all over the place but after a couple of days you soon get your bearings. I would ask for a high up room as get noise from the bar over the road as they have the same singer all week doing the same thing every night. Was good that hotel gave us something to eat as we arrived late and when we was leaving gave us a appartment at 7pm to shower as we had late pick up transfer. On the whole a good hotel who caters well for there visitors. With great spacious rooms that have large balcony with a shower.

My husband & I stayed with our two sons aged 12 & 22 in a 2-bedroom apartment on 9-16th June 2012 and we had a fantastic time. After a long day we were tired & found the map a bit confusing and it took a while to find our apartment. But when we finally found it it exceeded all expectations and was much bigger than we had thought it would be. You soon get used to the layout! The resort is lovely and quiet and we were able to enjoy a peaceful night's sleep each night with the doors wide open as it was hot. We were on the very top floor and had a great view. The balcony was massive and very sunny & private. We were self catering and our only "gripe" would be that there was no oven, only a microwave and a two-ring hob. The Hiper Dino opposite & the Spar down the road stocked everything we needed. The towels were changed regularly and the apartment was kept spotless. The whole resort is very clean. There are 3 pools to choose from and we never had a problem getting a sun lounger, even though we would go in the afternoon for a swim in the pool. The staff throughout the Hotel are very friendly and always happy to help. We did not eat at the Hotel, our favourite place to eat was La Linterna down on the beach front. The staff there are fantastic and the food is wonderful and reasonably priced. There is a big market there on a Friday and there are stalls here there & everywhere!! We did not want to come home and can wholeheartedly recommend this resort. We really felt that we had had a holiday and will definitely be going back. We didn't use the Spa so cannot give that a rating.

Just back from a lovely two week holiday with wife & two daughters (4 & 6 month old). We first came to this hotel when there was just the 3 of us in December 2010 and this is the first time we have ever been back to a resort which should tell you a lot, we have been lucky enough to have 2/3 holidays a year for the last 15 or so years. The hotel represents good value for money (based on what we paid for it both times) and Mogan is a nice town with a great beach (sandy, shallow for the kids to waddle about in) and lots of family orientated restuarants to eat in. The restaurants in the town are better (value and more traditional) than those on the seafront - although a special mention to the crepe/homemade ice cream place on the seafront, that was really good and lovely people running it. Mogan is nothing like the cheesy/downmarket Puerto Rico type resort so don't be put off if you've been to other GC resorts. Back to the hotel, nice big rooms, big balcony, several pools (quiet ones for adults & noisy kids one if you were with the brood like us), a good entertainment programme, friendly & hepful staff, I'm really finding it hard to say anything bad about the place. About the only thing is that there is no aircon in the room and it June it got very hot but hey-ho, you aclimatise. You can also hire an AC unit if required. Excellent supermarket opposite too so you can eat well in your apartment without going out to eat all the time if you are watching the cash. I really don't think this is the last time we will visit the Cordial Valle, we all had a great time!

My husband and I stayed at Mogan Valle from 9th - 23rd June 2012. What a super place to go our apartment overlooked the tropical garden onto one of the pools, it was wonderful. There are 3 swimming pools, 1 infinity pool, 1 large family pool with childrens pool and little park and a large pool which we overlooked. Childrens play area and small day centre for the children to play with an entertainer. A Tex Mex restaurant that looked verynice, nightly entertainment every night over the 2weeks was different so that was good you did'nt see the same thing both weeks. Very helpful staff, clean and tidy everywhere. Walking distance to the beach which is a beautiful sandy beach with bars and restaurants surrounding it, nice pretty marina super for a walk in the evenings threw the narrow streets.

We read some reviews and requested a room on 9th floor, self catering. People complained it was a long walk but it really wasn't, although the map isn't the easiest to follow! Nice big apartment with huge balcony and as it was top floor v private. Outdoor shower which was lovely after sunbathing or to cool down. Only downside was room was v hot although ceiling fan cooled you down there was no air con. Kitchen was well equipped except no oven just microwave and two hob rings. Tea towel provided and decent selection of pans etc. hyper dino which us a v well stocked supermarket 2 min walk away. Pools are lovely not too busy. Go to infinity pool if you want a quiter one or the one not close to bar is next quietest. Loads of nice places to eat on the beach or harbour, depending what you fancy. Zoo serves nice steak, or some of the places on the beach for more local stuff, fish etc. Only downside is your a bit of a drive from other bigger towns so when you go on trips you will be picked up fist and dropped off last!! Go to Sioux city fri night if you want a bit of a different night out, VIP trip booked through Thomas cook was ok but alot of driving, only go if you want lots of nice views. Maybe try the canarian combo instead. Sunday's are quiet, the resteraunt in the sister hotel ( which is nice, good service but a bit over priced) next door wasnt open but most places on the harbour were. On the whole a really lovely trip! Pleased with it for the price and glad we were staying there and not any where else!

We stayed in these apartments during the June half term not realising that this was the down season in Gran Canaria. The apartment cost £230 for the week through latedeals.co.uk. Amazing deal. Apartment well sized, clean, pleasant with a huge double balcony ideal for sunbathing. this was on the 8th floor and it has to be said the rooms are not easy to find in such a large set up but that floor does have these larger balconies. The grounds are well kept and pools were in fabulous condition. We had a wonderful relaxing week.

Recently stayed at this hotel. Don't be put off by silly reviews about it being a complicated place to stay. It was a relaxing, peaceful environment. Very high quality decorated lobby, hotel areas and apartment rooms. Large balconies and plenty of pools within the complex mean you can spend a whole day/week there if you want with all you need to hand. But the hotel is close to the main town and marina to access excellent restaurants & bars (Cuba Libre good for the younger crowd). Warning: many seem to close on Wednesdays. Check out La Fontane restaurant (Calle Rivera del Carmen 9) if you go - excellent, authentic food at very reasonable prices.

We'd been to Puerto De Morgan a few times on day trips but this was the first time we had the opportunity to stay in this beautiful place and we were not disappointed with the choice of hotel. The rooms were wonderfully equipped and we were a little apprehensive going half board as we normally go all inclusive but this hotel has everything you could need from sunbeds on the large balconies to awnings that make bringing the children out of the sun to eat a pleasure. The food in the restaurants was fabulous as was the service. The main pool was a little noisy but with two young children of our own we probably contributed to some of the noise ...........but for people who require a little more quiet there's an infinity pool that children aren't allowed in. To be honest this hotel has everything for families and couples who aren't looking for the Maspolomas or Playa del ingles type of Gran Canaria but a more refined and relaxed and authentic Canaries. We can't wait to go back and its not often I take the time to review but this was something special x Just a tip if you order wine dont buy the single small bottles they are 6 euros go straight for the full bottle its only 9 euros 75 lol enjoy x

We stayed for 1 week at the end of May. We arrived at lunchtime and on checking in we were offered a glass of champagne or orange juice whilst they checked to see if our room was ready (which it was). we were also informed that the rooms would be cleaned daily (except Sunday) and towels changed 3 times during our stay (Mon, Wed & Fri). We were also given written information on restaurant/spa etc opening times and given our key card which also opened the security gate to the complex. Our apartment was on the first floor and overlooked the children's play area and pool. It had a very spacious balcony with 2 sunbeds, table and 4 chairs, clothes drier and outdoor shower. The bedroom was fine, with good wardrobe space, safety deposit box, twin beds (a bit uncomfortable) bedside tables and dressing table. There was also a ceiling fan which came in very handy. The kitchen had a large table & 4 chairs and was well equiped with all the crockery/utensils you need, there was also a kettle, toaster & coffee perculator. The fridge had a small icebox and ice cube tray. There was a small wall (waist height) separating the living area and kitchen which made the living area feel bit cramped and sllightly over-furnished with a large sofabed, 2 chairs, corner table, coffee table and tv unit (very limited english channels). Again the ceiling fan was a very welcome additon. The bathroom was a good size with a shower over the bath, inset sink with plenty of space for toiletries etc and the toilet. We didnt eat at the complex so cannot comment on the service/quality of food. There is a well stocked supermarket opposite the complex and a 'Spar' supermarket just down the road. There are also numerous restaurants to choose from in the resort. A 10/15 minute stroll gets you to the beach/shops/promendade/harbour. The resort is lovely, it is very relaxing and picturesque - just what we were looking for. I would recommend to family/friends - and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Just back from a week here, and were pleasantly surpised. The apartments were clean and comfortable, especially the beds. I liked the environmentally friendly feel to the place, so no air con, power goes off when you leave the room etc (but when you hear they've had no rain for 18 months plus it makes sense to save water etc). It was warm at night sometimes, but the fans and open windows cooled us off. We didn't use the facilities much, as went out exploring or hiking most days and ate out most evenings. But we were able to cook if we wanted to (2 hot plates and a microwave). The only irritant was one electric socket to be used for kettle/ toaster/ cofee machine. The supermarket across the road was cheap and well stocked but the Spar had a fishmongers (8-4) as well as a butchers. Overall eating out was very reasonable and good. As below we asked to move as soon as we arrived and they gave us exactly what we asked for a higher floor in the same block. It was also good to be able to keep the apartment on our last day till 6pm for only 25 euros, meant the day wasn't rushed and we could pack and shower when we were ready to leave for the airport.

we stayed at this complex in May 2012 , we had a 1 bed apartment room 507. it was lovely , clean and well equipped, lovely view to the pool nearest our apartment. We had bed & breakfast and the food was excellent with loads of choice and the chefs cooking the fresh eggs, omeletes and pancakes were brilliant. the apartments are spacious and the terrace is huge with loungers, dining set and an outside shower. The staff all seemed helpful and friendly. The entertainment although short, was very good. there are 3 pools however we only used the one because it was so nice with plenty of loungers and chairs, it got the sun but also had enough shaded areas .This is worth the 4 star rating. Port mogan was lovely and very relaxing and picturesque. Plenty of good restaurants around the harbour and the sea front. Would definately like to go again

The apartments are well equipped with everything you need, but I would suggest if you have long hair you may want to take your own hair dryer. We stayed in apartment 607 and it was lovely and quiet. We used the pool below our room as this was the nice and quiet until the Kids turned up once school had finished. I would recommend this hotel for everyone, the food was great and the only thing that let it down was the entertainment, which I thought was very poor considering the high standards of the place. We hired a scooter for only one day but managed to get round the whole island, the mountain roads take forever but the views were amazing. There is a scooter hire place in Mogan called scooter king, you can;t miss it when you walk towards the beech. The beech was a lovely cove with safe swimming for kids. The Harbour is really pretty. We would love to visit again in the future.

We booked this holiday as a last minute one, and we decided to take the half board plus option, which was breakfast and dinner, with all drinks during both meals. There was also additional free spa access as part of our package. The food was great, and lots of choice between pasta, grilled meat and fish, fantastic salad bar, burgers, chips, vegetables....etc etc. The ground floor pool was very clean with plenty of sunbeds. The surrounding grounds were very well kept and very clean. Our apartment was huge. 1 bedroom, lovely modern kitchen area, lounge area, bathroom was large too. The spa was very nice. It had a jacuzzi, sauna,steam room, ice bucket shower, and an area outside for sunbathing. Very nice! This was the best holiday we have had, and we go abroad 3 or 4 times a year. When staying in Gran Canaria, we normally stay in Playa D`ingles as it has the Yumbo centre which has lots of bars etc. Puerto Mogan was a lovely change from the other busier parts of the island, although it was very quiet, there were some lovely restaurants at the harbour, serving a variety of foods. We spent a night in one of the, just people watching. And the beach was very nice, and the market on Friday was suprisingly big! If you dont like it quiet, dont worry, you can hire a car, we did this from the UK via the internet, and it coset £70 for the week, so when you consider the cost of transfers (and the 2 hours involved in travelling by coach via a dozen or so other hotels) it is worthwhile, plus you can then visit Maspalomas (the dunes and beach are out of this world) and Puerto Rico. I`d definately recommend hirng a car, it just makes the holiday so much easier. Anyway, we would definately return to these apartments at the drop of a hat, in fact I`d go tomorrow if we could. We just couldnt fault the place.

Nous avons passé deux semaines (05 au 19 mai 2012) dans cette résidence. C'était notre deuxième séjour, nous y avions passé une semaine l'an dernier à la même période. Le village (Puerto de Mogan) est très joli (sauf le très laid mais pratique centre commercial au pied de la résidence), rien à voir avec les grandes concentrations d’hôtels de Maspalomas et autres centres touristiques. L'ambiance est d'ailleurs différente, les commerçants sont sympathiques contrairement à ces endroits ou l'on se sent agressés dans les boutiques. La plage est à 10 mn à pied. Elle est calme, abritée du vent, parfaite pour les enfants (peut-être un peu petite en haute saison ?). la résidence est construite d'une telle façon que nous n'avons pas eu le sentiment d'être dans un grand complexe. Elle est bien entretenue, fleurie et arborée (autant que possible dans cette région !). Les abords de la grande piscine sont particulièrement agréables. L'appartement était constitué d'une chambre avec deux lits, une cuisine-salon avec un canapé lit (attention en s'allongeant sur le lit, les premières fois, si on s'y prend mal, le pied du lit se relève ! on croit qu'il va se replier !) une grande salle de bain et une très grande terrasse. Il est très agréable. Attention toutefois, à l'entretien, dans la salle de bain, le papier peint se décolle un peu, la porte subit l'humidité et gonfle un peu, rien de gênant pour l'instant (et pour nous !), mais les années passant cela risque de dévaloriser la résidence. Comme l'année dernière, nous avons beaucoup apprécié le professionnalisme, le dynamisme de toute l'équipe. Tous sont toujours souriants et plein de petites attentions qui ont rendu notre séjour très agréable. Pour l'anniversaire de mon mari, pendant le séjour, une bouteille de vin a été déposée dans notre chambre (nous remercions encore l'équipe pour cette attention !) L'accueil au restaurant est très sympathique (merci à Eugenio et son équipe !) et nous avons très bien mangé (les poissons à la plancha sont extras !). les réceptionnistes ont toujours été attentionnés, les femmes de chambres et le service technique (un problème d'ampoule dans la salle de bains) très efficaces. Nous avons apprécié les efforts de l'animateur pour parler Français (alors que nous n'étions pas nombreux !) ainsi que les spectacles (des prestataires extérieurs interviennent chaque soir) : encore bravo au "chapelier fou" et aux contorsionnistes, nous avons adoré ! En conclusion, c'est avec plaisir que nous reviendrons à Gran Canaria (qui n'est pas qu'une usine à touristes, si on se promène dans les terres et le nord de l'île) et à Mogan Vallé. Le séjour en demi-pension est vraiment d'un très bon rapport qualité-prix. Merci encore à tous.

My husband and I stayed in these apartments a couple of weeks ago. We were very pleased with the space and the sunbeds on the balcony were a bonus which meant that there was never a problem getting a sunbed around the pool at any time of the day. There were also awnings on the balcony if the sun got too hot. The hotel and grounds were kept very clean. One evening our kettle switch wouldn't work and we reported it at reception on our way into our evening meal. By the time we got back to the apartment later in the evening this had either been mended or replaced. We were half board plus which included our wine, water, beer or soft drinks. We were allocated a table on second sitting which we kept all week. The food was very good - international choice and there was a choice of meat and fish at the grill which was cooked by the chef to order. Breakfasts were particularly good with plenty of choice for everyone including cooked breakfasts, plenty of fresh fruit, cereal, breads, cakes,etc. Although the restaurant was busy we never had problem with queues. The restaurant staff worked very hard to keep everything running smoothly and always with a smile. The location was excellent - just a 10 minute walk to the lovely harbour. The beach is very good. Good restaurants. There is a large well stocked supermarket just across the road from the hotel. We went into the hotel Mogan Playa next door a couple of times and this was beautiful inside, although we liked the freedom of our apartment. We didn't go to any entertainment so can't comment on this, although we did go to see an Abba show one night but the football went into extra time so it was too late for the show to start. It is a very peaceful relaxing resort ideal for families with young children or couples wanting a quiet holiday. All the staff were brilliant and everyone was friendly and helpful. We will certainly go back and can recommend it.

We stayed 10 nights self catering in the Cordial Valle apartments. Hotel is in an excellent location 5 minutes walk from the beach in Puerto Mogan. We didn't spend a huge amount of time in the hotel, preferring to do a bit of exploring. However the room itself was amazing, huge inside with large bedroom, bathroom, kitchen dining area and a living room. The balcony area was nearly as big again with a table and 4 chairs along with 2 sun loungers. We opted for a sea view (we had room 539) and that seemed an especially good choice if seeking a sun tan in privacy - those apartments lower down looked to have smaller balconies and were much more shaded - some balconies faced public areas. All the hotel staff were very friendly, happily chatting away in English and very encouraging if you tried responding in broken Spanish. I think beds were due to be changed weekly and towels twice weekly but in reality the cleaners called far more often and were very chatty when they did. The rooms and the hotel in general are immaculate. We spent a few hours one day by the main pool which always had plenty of sunbeds free. Again, high standard and a good size. We didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment, however had a few drinks at the snack bar which had 2 pool tables (1 euro a game) and a table tennis table. Good service, typical hotel bar pricing. There's been a few comments about cockroaches, we saw 3 in the hotel in 10 days, never in the rooms or corridors which are clearly regularly treated with insecticide. We arrived during a Heatwave with outside temps of up to 40 degrees - we knew there was no aircon beforehand and as stated elsewhere the fans are completely ineffective. We had no real problem - either sleeping with the balcony doors open or on the balcony. Once the temps dropped back to normal (mid to high 20s) it was totally fine. You get what you pay for - the room was still incredibly good value. We had some slight concerns that Puerto Mogan itself may be too quiet with some reviews suggesting it shut at around 10 or 11. This is nonsense - we went in May which is effectively off season. You have a broad choice of restaurants and cafes which shut between 9 and midnight depending on how busy the day / restaurant is. After that there is a small alley with 3 or 4 late night bars (also serving food). We were certainly there until 1am some nights and the places showed no sign of closing. Highly recommended to anyone considering a trip to Gran Canaria.

Just returned from a week with the family (4) staying at these apartments. The accommodation suited us perfectly with a one bedroomed apartment on the 9th level with large terrace. I would agree with the other comments that the signage and lift system is a little awkward to navigate but once you have been there for a day it all nearly makes sense. The accommodation was clean and functional with a lovely large terrace and good living space. We stayed self-catering and although the kitchen was adequate for breakfast and lunches it was a little basic for cooking evening meals when we didn’t eat out. The apartments were cleaned most days and towels were changed every second or third day which worked well for us. The resort itself is great for families with a lovely sandy beach and the harbour area and restaurants are lovely. It is a quite resort with the apartments and the sister hotel being the main tourist accommodation, most bars restaurants were closing up by 10pm but again this worked well for us, no loud bars clubs anywhere in the resort. Eating out was expensive for a family and the price of local dishes was quite high although there were deals to be had, seafood paella for two 25 euros. There is a local supermarket 100 meters from the apartments which sold everything we needed except local fish. We visited the wildlife/dolphin park which was a great day out and the kids had a great time, www.palmitospark.es and would higly recomend for a day out. We self-drove and it was easy to get around the island, just don’t look down when you are on some of the smaller roads around the cliffs and mountains as they are pretty steep. All in all I would recommend the accommodation for families and people looking for a quite holiday with nice accomadation.

My wife and I returned from a 10 day stay on 02 May. These apartments and their wonderful balconies made this one of the best holidays we have ever had. On arriving on 23 Apr we were booked in by PAULINE on reception who was not only extremely lovely but also very efficient and extremely courteous during our entire stay. She always had a smile and a kind word to everyone. We found our room on the 5th Floor, J Block using the quite complicated lift system and were amazed at the cleanliness and tidiness of the apartment and balcony. This was due to our wonderful cleaner called CARMEN who smiled and greeted us warmly every time we saw her. You could see the days she did not clean (Sundays and Thursdays) but the day she returned everything would be spotless again. We stayed half board and would definitely do so again as the restaurant was first class due to the positive attitude of the staff. Eugene was efficiency itself and very polite to all of the guests even when the restaurant was extremely busy. I must also praise the waiters, especially YADIER and CONTANSA who always seemed to be smiling even under extreme duress and were excellent at their jobs ( they both deserve a wage increase). I only had one complaint with the restaurant. After the first 4 days they ran out of SUGAR PUFFS at breakfast (a total catastrophe in my opinion !!!!!!!!!!!) Mogan is a very quiet resort well suited to older couples who want peace and quiet and families with young children. Teenagers would be very bored after sunbathing. ALL IN ALL, A WONDERFUL REST IN A PERFECT APARTMENT COMPLEX RUN BY EXCELLENT STAFF. WE CANNOT WAIT TO RETURN AND WILL PROBABLY BE BACK LATER THIS YEAR.

Etter vårt tredje 3 ukers opphold på hotellet er vi fortsatt av samme oppfatning at dette er et førsteklasses leilighetshotell for familer. Vi har bestilt et 3 ukers opphold også for 2013. Utmerket service på rommet og hotellet forøvrig. Det er flere bassenger, og utmerkede spisesteder nært hotellet. En stor butikk med godt utvalg av mat og drikke, herunder dagens norske aviser. Med relativ kort avstand til stranda og gode turmuligheter har dette blitt vårt faste feriested.

Veldig rolig og avslappende sted, ingen bråk fra barer eller trafikk! Vi var også veldig fornøyd med hotellet.

After arriving at our Cordial Mogan Valle apartment we were pleasantly surprised how spacious and spotless it was. We had requested a sea view and got one. We stayed there for 7 nights,self catering. The reception staff were extremely pleasant, helpful and courteous. Location was quite a way from the beach, but we didn't mind as the accommodation was first class. Maid service was very good, clean towels each day, even the balcony was kept spotlessly clean. (Ladies you won't need to pack a hairdrier as each apartment has one in the bathroom). Puerto Mogan is a beautiful fishing harbour, plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from, definitely not a place for the younger generation looking for nightclubs, as there didn't seem to be any, which suited us perfectly, so if that's what you are looking for Puerto Mogan is definitely not for you There are boat trips down to Puerto Rico regularly if you wish to explore further, we didn't as once we arrived in Mogan we didn't want to leave. There is also a market on Fridays, with quite a range of stalls, unfortunately we didn't get to stay there long as we had a downpour on that day, so headed for the bar instead!! We tried several restaurants, before finally settling for the Mogan Mar at the far end of the sea front, this had a wide range of foods to choose from with fresh fish delivered daily from local fishermen. We can recommend this restaurant for excellent service from friendly staff and owners. By the way, don't be put off by the reps temperature forecast, as the temp in Las Palmas seems to be a lot cooler than the south of the island. My heart sank as they announced it was just 20-21 degrees, it was more like 28 degrees when we arrived in Mogan. This was our first holiday in Gran Canaria and we are hoping to return in September/October to the Cordial Mogan Valle Apartments. The only thing I would change, is to go for 2 weeks instead of 1.

My daughter and I have recently returned from here and we both thought they were the nicest apartments we have ever stayed in. We did a Travelzoo deal which included breakfast and dinner with wine plus spa entry. We thought we would just get a glass of wine, but no, a bottle each(her white, me red)! It wasn't the nicest wine in the world but at least it was generous. Breakfast was very nice with plenty of choice. Dinner also good with 4 choices on the grill each evening as well as the buffet. We were also able to swap dinner for lunch whenever we wished so that we could try some of the restaurants in the town. Eugene in the restaurant was delightful and always pleased to help. We tried the spa on the one rainy day we had....all ok but be aware that non British guests are happy to use the facilities naked - not always a pleasant sight. The resort itself is just a ten minute level walk away and is lovely with the benefit of a nice beach and a picturesque harbour, both surrounded by restaurants and bars. Everyone was very welcoming...no pestering. The apartment itself was very spacious and clean. We took the tips from previous reviewers and asked for mattress toppers which were promptly delivered. The huge balcony was much used. The pools were attractive but too chilly to really enjoy a cooling dip. Also, although the infinity pool is supposed to be adults only, this isn't clearly signed or enforced and there were often children in the pool (though why anyone would take children there when there was a fantastic family pool is beyond me!). My only criticism was regarding the transfer that was booked for us (nothing to do with the apartments). We made the mistake of going with a shuttle bus....consequently our trip from the airport made 15 drop offs and took well over 2 hours instead of the 40 minutes a taxi would take. We upgraded to a private transfer back which was money well spent. We would certainly visit again.

Stayed here for 5 nights from 23 to 28 April. Weather was lovely apart from last day when it rained and was cloudy. Accomodation was excellent with daily maid service and clean towels when needed. Recommend 1st floor and above so that you get the sun. Although handy for the pool the ground floor apts are always in the shade. Excellent and friendly staff. Free wifi throughout hotel. Lovely pools and plenty of sun beds with no people putting towels on first thing (might be much busier in hi season). Puerto Mogan is simply delightful with lovely beach and marina. Restaurants are plentiful with wonderful food. We did 5 different restaurants in our 5 nights and each one was lovely. We did not find it as expensive as mainland Spain either. Did not eat in the hotel so cannot comment although heard from other guests that it was very good. We went on self catering which was perfect as there was an excellent largish supermarket right opposite the hotel. Abount 7 mins walk to marina and town centre. Cannot comment on any nightlife but imagine it is more about restaurants and bars then clubs. Would definitely return.

Just home from a great two weeks stay at these lovely apartments , very clean and fantastic huge sunny balconies with sun loungers, table & chairs , even a shower. Puerto Mogan is a lovely quiet resort which really suited us, not the cheapest but we thought it was the best in Gran Canaria, lovely marina! You must try the restaurant casito Mediterraneo, the presentation of the food is first class & very tasty, try the trio of fish or pasta mmmm!!! The sweets r to die for!!!! Staff at the apartments are very friendly, supermarket just opposite open every day till 9pm, might close earlier on Sundays, we don't often visit the same place but would make an exception with these apartments/ resort.

We stayed here for a week, self catering for our honeymoon in January 2012. The apartments are spacious and clean and could not fault them in anyway. There is everything in the apartments you need to make a basic meal. There is a pool on the 6th floor just for adults which was great and a bigger pool for children on the ground floor. The weather was great, hot but no scorching. The market on a friday in Mogan is big and bartering is a must. There are buses that run into Puerto Rico, Playa das ingles and Maspelomas every half an hour or so and they are cheap, a few euros if you want to escape. The harbour around Mogan is beautiful and there are lots of lovely resturants overlooking the harbour. We discovered Denneys irish bar and for around 40 euros you can have a great meal with wine and a starter and the meal was fantastic! The italian Brushetta is also superb. All in all we had a superb week and I would recommend it to anyone.

We stayed at the Cordial Mogan Valle apartments last week. We are a family of 4 and the apartments were fantastic. enough space for us all, and the balcony was exceptionally large and superb. The apartment was kept very clean throughout. There are 3 pools and the kids loved playing in the one designed for kids. We also used the Spa, which again was exceptionally well kept and a joy to use. What really made the holiday was the staff. They were truly fantastic. Nothing was too much. We are vegetarian, and the buffet was not really geared for the vegetarian diet, but after speaking to a very sympathetic manager, they prepared dishes for us and arranged for the family to eat at the sister hotel which had several vegetarian dishes. I could not recommend this hotel / apartment highly enough, it was one of the best holidays the family has had.

Hi just got back from this excellant resort! We have in Mogan before so cannot say how wonderful this resort is to stay first class!!!!!! This time we decided to try the cordial apartments as we wanted a bit more flexability. The apartments are very good with a dining sitting room big enough for you to have a meal and relax on the big comfy setee afterwards! The balcolny is huge which I liked particularly, as when you wanted a bit of me time you could stretch out on a sunbed on the balcony! There were two full sized sun beds as well as table and chairs . We opted for bed and breakfast and loved the fact that there was so much variety!!! I especially liked the smoked salmon and champagne!!!!!!!!! My only gripe on this is I felt the dining room was a little small for the number of guests eating as there was always a queue! We ate a number of times at some of the restaurants in the harbor, we particulaly liked cafe mogan where we had a fab meal a superb bottle of red wine plus very good service! we would definatly eat there again when we return!

Still here currently but loving it! Have not met anybody who is unfriendly yet. We are a family of four, separate bedroom is great and the sofa bed pulls out very easily into two proper single beds for the kids. Apartment is spotless, as is the whole complex, anybody who feels the need to study the room for cleanliness needs to get out more! We stay half board, great variety of food though I guess is a bit samey after a while but it's fine. Great dessert buffet, my kids are in heaven! Very good selection for breakfast. The main pool area has a great kids pool, yes it's astro turf but it's brilliant - surface not hot to walk on and it's non slip, parents will get why this is important! My 5 year old has enjoyed the kids club too. The evening entertainment isn't great, but we would rather go for a walk into the very pretty harbour than stay in the hotel permanently anyway. Kids loved the mini disco. Beds a bit hard but on mentioning to reception mattress toppers were delivered and fitted to beds the same day which made a big difference, excellent service. Only negative would be the lack of air con, ok now and the room ceiling fans do a good job but I would imagine in the heat of summer it would be pretty hot everywhere. To Sum up, very clean, well maintained complex, big rooms and great staff who always say hello, smile and seem to genuinely like their jobs, especially in the restaurant.

GENERAL IMPRESSION -Just returned from our second stay at the Cordial Mogan Valle. Pleased to find that the original high standards of customer care and service have been maintained. From reception staff to the gardeners, maintenance team, maids, bar and restaurant staff, everyone was cheerful, diligent and good humoured, in particular Ramon and Eugenio. Our 6th floor apartment, with it's spacious balcony, provided a sunny location overlooking the tennis courts. Having an open walkway to the apartment afforded more privacy as we were not directly overlooked. The accommodation was well appointed, clean and comfortable. Full credit to the maids for their hard work in servicing the apartment and ensuring it was looking it's best. FACILITIES - We enjoyed using the clay tennis courts, usually in the early morning or late afternoon.One hour cost 10 euros (racquets 2 euros each) but we booked a 4 hour package for 25 euros. Milan, from the Animation Team, was friendly and enthusiastic and the air rifle shooting was good fun. The spa, (Saturday is usually quiet), was relaxing, invigorating and decent value at 5 euros per person for use of the steam room, sauna, jacuzzi, flotation cave and very effective 'cool down' water treatments! Tried the snack bar once and was very pleased with the special non-dairy, non-egg veggie salad. Entertainments were okay, the usual cabaret style acts, Abba tribute shows etc, with audience participation encouraged, children and adults alike. We watched a few acts at the Cordial Mogan Playa next door, ranging from the Bejing Acrobats to a Bee Gees tribute group. Reasonably priced cocktails, liqueurs and top brand spirits on offer, served with a smile and generous measures! Even if you don't rate the show, relax with your drink and be mesmerised by the beautiful changing colours of the 'jellyfish light shades'. LOCAL ACTIVITIES - If you're in the mood for a walk, take the twisting pathway up the hill opposite the complex and after about 1 1/4 hours you will reach a fruit plantation. Fifteen minutes later you will have a good view of a secluded beach. After 2 hairpins, a narrow track will lead you to this lovely little strip of dark volcanic sand. A melodic 'whooshing' sound is created by the waves breaking on the rocks and pebbles dotted along the shoreline. We had a mini picnic with a cold beer sitting on the cliff at the far side of the beach. It's a 4 hour round trip, walking at a lively pace, so walking shoes, or at least good trainers, would be advisable, in addition to sensible sun protection. If you're game, you may like to try the local sport, I think it's called 'padle', which can be booked at the gym/sports centre on the way into town on the 'fish walkway'. The charge is 3 or 4 euros per hour, depending on the time of day and 2 euros per bat. It's a cross between squash and tennis, normally a doubles game, played in the outdoors. BARS AND RESTAURANTS - Hopefully, with a variety of restaurants to tempt you in, you will be getting used to the phrase 'La comida estaba deliciosa, muchas gracias' (The food was delicious, thanks very much) on your holiday. For authentic and tasty Italian food we would heartily recommend 'La Cucina'. From the beachfront, cross the bridge to the Plaza Doctor Pedro Betancor Leon and it's a few doors up from the pharmacy. Lots of charm and a warm, friendly welcome from Anna & Massimiliano. Bursts of enthusiastic singing along to Rossini provided a musical 'side order' to a few lovely meals in this little tucked away gem. The usual fare, pizzas and pastas, with vegan options. My favourite was the simple but flavoursome bruschetta pomodoro crostini, using home baked Italian bread. 'Zona Verde' - wood burning grill in a lovely tree-fringed garden setting with a great atmosphere. My wife thought the chicken kebabs were very tasty and I was well satisfied with the salad, a filling and impressive creation of finely shredded red cabbage, carrot, mixed leaves, banana, chickpeas and fruit sauces, with a helping of Canarian potatoes and mojo sauce. Excellent range of beers including Leffe brown, blonde and Duvel, served in proper glasses. 'La Linterna' - tapas restaurant at the end of the promenade. Wood oven baked bread, veggie tapas, fresh fish and Estrella beer from Catalonia. The only restaurant prepared to cook me a vegetable paella for 1 (11 euros), rather than insisting on the 2 person minimum, which I accept is fair considering the preparation time. Also enjoyed 'La Bruschetta' and savoured a return 'al fresco' visit to the 'Taj Tandoori' at the shopping centre. For entertainments, alas, Bar Bohemia is no more but there are a few other bars in Calle Los Pescadores, including the Calypso Bar, which has live music on offer, usually a pretty good crooner and a proficient guitarist called Ivan, delivering laid back, chilled out performances. Nice mojitos, a pool table and some striking artwork. Satisfy your liking for games further by nipping across to Bar Sarito for more pool, 'bar football' and table tennis. In summary, we had a great time and hope you have an enjoyable and memorable holiday as well, should you choose to have a break in Puerto Mogan.

The road is not used at all and the views are great. Overall a great hotel and resort for families

Vi er en familie på fire (mor, far, 2 børn på 9 og 12 år), der i år var på Mogan Valle for 4. gang. Vi har været flere steder på Gran Canaria, men dette er det bedste hotel i den bedste by. Store, dejlige lejligheder med stor terasse. Halvpension inkl. drikkevarer til fordelagtig pris. Dejlig buffet både morgen og aften med frisklavet mad og godt udvalg. Fin rengøring. Opvarmet pool i vinterhalvåret. Godt supermarked 1 min fra hotellet. Det bedste ved hotellet er dog den dejlige, familiære og afslappede stemning. Tjenerne i restauranten er fanatstiske! Der er altid en hyggelig og humoristisk stemning, og hver dag får man indtryk af, at personalet elsker deres job. Især overtjeneren Eugenio, som altid kan få børnene (og os andre) til at grine, er et sjældent positivt menneske, som vi hvert år glæder os til at se igen. Betjeningen bliver dog aldrig påtrængende eller anstrengende. Vi glæder os allerede til vores 5. besøg!

This was our third visit, we love it. The rooms are spacious, maintenance issues are quickly dealt with, the staff are friendly. There is a supermarket nearby. The beach and marina is approx. 500 yards away, as are most restaurants. The weather was sunny but cool in the evening, a light coat or cardigan was required at times.

Vi har en datter på 5 mnd og leide en av leilighetene. Det var skikkelig bra leilighet med høy standard. separat soverom og romslig bad. Men det beste med leiligheten var alikevell den kjempestore verandaen. Helt toppert! Da kunne vesla sove i skyggen og mor og far steke i solen. Det var til og med en egen dusj på hverandaen om vi ville kjøle oss ned litt og ikke orket å gå til bassenget. Bassenget var også kjempe fint. Nå var det flere, men vi brukte bare barnebassenget. Benyttet meg også av spa og treningsannleget og det var rent og stilig. Ikke av de største, men hadde alt man trengte:0) Vil helt klart anbefale dette hotellet til barnefamilier. Frokostbufeen var helt fantastisk så kjøp inkludert frokost, her har de noe for alle!

Vi var 3 generasjoner på reisen. Yngste barn var 6 mnd. En supert sted å bo for alle. Vakre bassengområder og over 25+ i vannet. Hyggelig 10 min. gåtur til sentrum , stranden og det flotte området rundt havna. Koselig liten "by" som er ulik alle andre typiske kanaribyer. Fravær av masete musikk og ingen "digre" hotell. Dette stedet anbefales for de som ønsker en avslappet ferie:) Minus for bussturen mellom flyplass og Mogan. Kun 3 mil, men pga all levering/henting, tar denne turen nesten 2 timer.

This was our first visit to cordial mogan valle apartments and we were not dissapointed. I emailed reception a couple of weeks before our arrival requesting an upper balcony floor with sunny aspect. We were allocated an apartment on the 8th floor (D block north side) overlooking the infinity pool. We were pleasantly surprised by the huge balacony and well equipped kitchen etc. I also mentioned it was my husband's birthday and on the day we found a bottle of cava waiting for us in our room. We couldn't fault the apartments at all and the cleaning service was excellent. We opted for bed and breakfast and the food was plentiful and well presented. Mogan is a beautiful place and certainly a return is planned for next year. Weather was glorious and just needed a light cardigan for the evening. We ate out every evening and tried some of the places previously recommended on this site. We especially liked La Tabona, next to Bar Zoo. An excellent range of tapas and the owner who is english was very helpful in explaining the various dishes. Wine and food was very reasonably priced. We also enjoyed the Mogan Mar restruant, again very reasonably priced and Olivia (next to the bandstand) which was a bit more pricy. Overall, a fabulous holiday with glorious sunshine, excellent apartments and very friendly staff. Will definately return next year.

Any maintenance issues were dealt with very quickly; shower head, broken coffee pot etc. Easy walking distance into town and close to the excellent Zona Verde restaurant. HiperDino supermarket is close by for self-catering and is well stocked. On the whole, a great place for 7 days of winter sun.

It was so different from all the other in Canaria. We realy felt us welcomed as turists. Evry things is done for the best of the visitors in Mogan.

From the time you arrive at reception and are offered a complimentary glass of juice or sparkling wine - the welcome continues as all members of staff have a smile on their face and say Ola. This set of Villas is on the sloping side of the valley. If you have difficulties with inclines there is no need to be concerned in any way. There are lifts everywhere, you have never seen so many. If the first lift does not take you to your floor it is only a short walk to one that will. The sign posting does take a little getting used to but that process really can be quite fun. The standard of cleanliness is second to none! Bedding is changed 2 to 3 times a week and towels 5 times a week. We only ate once in the restaurant, for breakfast and found no fault at all. One of the satellite imaging facilities will show you how many pools there are here and there are plenty to accommodate little ones. Well recommended endorsed by the number of people who were returning for four, five or more times.

We stayed at the Cordial Mogan Valle complex in late February. We were a little concerned that we may be disappointed after a week at it's fantastic next door neighbour - the Cordial Hotel Mogan Playa in 2011! We needn't have worried. The complex is huge and covers a vast area but it manages to retain a homely feel. The apartments are first class and spotlessly clean. Ours had just been refurbished to an extremely high standard and was very well equipped. The huge balcony was amazing. We opted for the B&B package and had breakfast each morning in the dining room. It can get busy at times but the food is plentiful and varied and the staff friendly and efficient. Having stayed at both Cordial properties I can happily say the staff are exceptional in both establishments – well done Cordial! Puerto Mogan is a charming little place and we will be back again next year. The Cordial Mogan Valle is the ideal place to stay and offers good self-catering options. This is important to us as the restaurants in town are, in truth, a little disappointing. Can't wait to return next year.

2nd time at this hotel. Cordial have spent money on the facilities over the year, and it's been worth the effort - more play facilities for the children, better pool bar furniture and especially the artificial turf around the main poolside. We had a problem with our room and it was fixed within 15 minutes - the general manager sought us out to deal with the problem personally. Just super staff here - everyone smiling and good humoured, and courteous and helpful. Can't speak highly enough of the CMV!

Når vinteren kom 19. januar, satte vi oss på flyet til Gran Canaria! I år reiste min venninne og jeg og våre to mødre på 69 og 88 år sammen. Vi valgte å bo på flotte Cordial Mogan Valle i to uker! Her har vi bodd to ganger før og vært superførnøyde! Når man ankommer hotellet blir man tatt i mot med smil og champagne/juice mens man venter på innsjekkingen. Leilighetene er store, lyse, velutstyrte, rene og med stor flott terrasse mot vest! Vi ønsket oss en spesiell leilighet i 6. etg. før ankomst og det gjorde de alt for å oppfylle. Vi bodde en natt i en annen leilighet før vi fikk den leiligheten vi ønsket. Vi valgte å spise frokost i hotellets spisesal under hele oppholdet. Nydelig buffè med godt utvalg både for liten og stor! "Eugenio", hovmester i særklasse og hans staff, var alltid oppmerksomme, behjelpelige og virkelig glad i mennesker! Det er yrende liv på dagtid i den lille vakre, hvite byen Puerto de Mogàn som man går til på 10 min fra hotellet. Her vil vi spesielt anbefale "So Good", italiensk restaurant på strandpromenaden, som et godt spisested. Kokken er fra Napoli og lager nydelig mat. Konen hans serverer og gir den beste service. Vi benyttet oss også av de flotte turmulighetene i fjellet rundt Mogàn! Fantastisk flora og utsikt! Siden det er litt kaldt i sjøen på denne tiden, benyttet vi bassengene på hotellet. Tre flotte basseng å velge mellom. Vi gleder oss allerede til neste tur og opphold på Cordial Mogàn Valle! Her plages man ikke av høylytt musikk eller støy fra trafikk! Et paradis å komme til! ;-)

Stannade med familjen i tre veckor. Vi var jättenöjda! Vår lägenhet på sjätte våning var stor och rymlig med två separata rum och stor terass. Uppdelningen var perfekt för oss och barnen. Sängarna var mycket bekväma, även den utdragbara soffan. Barnen sov i hotellets resesängar. Köket var rustat med allt som behövs för att fixa enklare måltider: kyl, frys, liten spis, mikrovågsugn, kaffebryggare, brödrost, vattenkokare. Vi hade halvpension och ordnade lunchen själva. Direkt utanför hotellet ligger en supermarknad där man fick tag på allt som behövdes. Maten i restaurangen var jättegott och omfattande. Det blev aldrig tråkigt under hela vistelsen. Eugenio och hans team gjorde ett fantastiskt jobb! Barnvänligare personal får man leta efter! Allt fixades åt oss, tom haklappar när vi hade glömt de. Vår tvåårige son såg fram emot varje måltid där han fick träffa Eugenio. Tack vare hjälpen vi fick i restaurangen blev måltiderna avslappnande för oss vuxna. Att det finns en liten lekplats med bollhav utanför restaurangen var ett extra plus. Anläggningen är ren och fräsch. Det finns två poolområden. Bredvis barnpoolen ligger ytterliggare en liten lekplats med rutschkana. Vid ankomst fick vi en Wifi kod och nätet funkade även i lägenheten. Vi nyttjade även den tillhörande spaanläggningen och var nöjda med bastu, whirlpool, gym och massage. Var lite oroliga pga att vi läste om anläggningens storlek och att man måste ta hissar. Men det funkade jättebra. Tillgängligheten med stor barnvagn var utmärkt och vi var särskild glada att vi fick ta in syskonvagnen i restaurangen. Till stranden är det ca 10 minuters gångavstånd. Hela den vägen är bilfri och därmed mycket barnsäker. Vi älskade den lilla stranden och hamnen. Åter igen mycket lättillgänglig med barnvagn ända ner till solstolarna. Gjorde en båtutflykt till Puerto Rico och var jätteglada att vi bodde i Mogan istället!!! Vi åker gärna hit igen!

Never been to Gran Canaria before so looked at reviews on tripadvisor for places to stay. We wanted a quiet resort and Puerto Mogan seemed to fit the bill - we were right. Then we had to choose accommodation. Looking at the reviews, we really fancied Cordial mogan Playa, but it was outside our price range, so Valle seemed a good 2nd choice. We plumped for B & B and requested an apartment on either floor 6 or 9 as I had read that they had large balconies. As Mogan is the furthest resort from the airport we booked private transfer, which was excellent and only took 30 minutes. Booking in at the hotel was quick and easy, with a glass of complimentary fizz welcome. They has taken note of our request and we were allocated a room on the 6th floor. We were given a photocopy of the map of the hotel with directions how to get to our room as the hotel has many lifts which can be confusing. Although we found our way around very quickly and easily, I can see why it could be difficult, as the signage on the outside of the lifts is hard to understand. The apartment was very spacious with plenty of wardrobe space, but only 3 small drawers - could have done with more for tee shirts etc. Even though there was only 2 of us, the apartment still had separate bedroom which was nice. Kitchen area had good quality crockery and cutlary. We always take our own mugs as we like a decent size cup of tea, and we are glad we did, as the cups are very small. 2 burner hob, microwave, kettle and coffee maker no dishwasher but washing up liquid supplied and sponge/scourer. Sofabed very good - pulled out to 2 separate single beds with proper mattresses. Balcony huge and completely unoverlooked with pull out shades covering half of balcony if required. Some of the apartments had slightly smaller balconies and the ones on the ground floor had very small terraces, some of which were quite overlooked round the pool areas, but ideal for small children. We had shower over the bath, which was perfectly adequate - plenty of hot water. Lighting brilliant in bathroom with wall mounted hairdrier.and 2 sided shaving mirror. As we stayed in January we didn't need the fan on and certainly didn't need aircon, although the sun shone every day and it was beautifully warm. Grounds were immaculately kept and swimming pools exceptionally clean. A couple of cats hung around but were not intrusive. Breakfast was excellent - good variety and well labelled. No poached eggs though (scrambled, fried, boiled and omelettes available). Little tip: if you want a hot breakfast with an omelette , choose your fillings for your omelette first, then give to chef - you can then choose you other items while the omelette is being cooked. There were always tables available, so no waiting in a queue. Other than breakfast we ate out or cooked, so can't comment on other meals. We have only 2 slight complaints: TV only had CNN, BBC world news and Disney Channel in English - not even a music channel or radio. The other, which the hotel can do nothing about, is dog barking. Because the resort is in a valley, the noise echoes, but we soon didn't notice it. All in all I would definitely recommend it, but maybe the hotel and the resort in general would not be ideal for teenagers.

God adkomst med hurtige heiser eller trapp. Hyggelig service i resepsjonen. Bra svømmebassenger. God beliggenhet med kjøpesenter like i nærheten, og badestranden, det vakre havneområdet og gode restauranter i grei gangavstand.

Havneområdet i Puerto de Mogan har noen meget bra restauranter. Gode jogge-muligheter i nærområdet, og fint utgangspunkt for turer i fjellene på sykkel eller med bil. Vi koste oss på dette hotellet.

Quiero compartir con todos nuestra experiencia en el apartahotel Cordial Mogán Valle. Antes de ir, ya había leído opiniones sobre el establecimiento y todas en general eran buenas ,y después de haber estado allí seis día maravillosos, he de decir, que en mi opinión es un sitio excelente. Los apartamentos estan muy bien equipados, pero lo que más valoro y por lo que volveré, es sin duda, por el excelente trato de todo el personal del hotel: Eugenio, Ramón, Lidia, Juan, Roberto (ese animador de TC), etc........Nos han tratado maravillosamente. Mis hijos estaban encantados tanto con el personal, como con los apartamentos en sí. La animación muy buena, la única pega es que a las 11h se apagan todas las luces y se acabaron los espectáculos, cierra el bar y demás......si esperas descansar, genial,....sino.......Las piscinas estaban climatizadas, por lo que los niños se pudieron bañar tranquilamente.....el día de Nochevieja, muy bien, aunque a las 2h cerraron las instalaciones, pero muy bien......la comida, excelente, tanto la de diario como la de la gala de Nochevieja....Los platos del snack bar, genial.....El SPA es chiquitito pero encantador y la gente muy amable. El gym también está bastante bien y por 2 euros puedes estar todo el tiempo que quieras.....Es un lugar muy agradable, el puerto de Mogán tiene un encanto especial...En definitiva, volveremos.

Hicimos la reserva a través de Atrapalo.com, y por algún problema no lo encontraban, pero nos lo solucionaron desde recepción en el momento de llegar. Las piscinas y el comedor no se abarrotan (al menos en esta época del año)

We have been to Cordial Mogan Valle three times, and we are certainly looking forward to our fourth time in the end of January. Why do we return again and again? The rooms are beautifully decorated, the kitchen has all we need. And if there is anything we need, the reception is kind enough to provide us with it. The same It is several lovely pools outside, you can choose if you like to be on a quiet place or a place with a little more noise. The entertainment around the pool is also very nice, it is just enough of it, not too much and not too little. We participate in the water gym and the water polo - it is nice with a litte activity during the day. The place is well maintained and the staff is very helpful and friendly. goes for extra pillows etc. The cleaning is excelllent, and they will also provide you with anything you need. And they SMILE. We are only sorry we could stay only two weeks this time, next year we hope it will be three weeks again!

Tilbrakte 14 dager i julen her. For vår familie på fire (barn 9 og 15) ble dette akkurat den ferien vi ønsket oss, og vel så det! Romslig leilighet med godt reinhold. Nydelig terrasse med sol fra kl 10.00. Gode bassenger, og kun 10 min gangtid i trafikkfritt miljø til stranden. Byen er veldig sjarmerende og innbyr til avslappende kveldturer. Ingen trafikkstøy om natten, eller discolyd ut i de små timer. Nydelig turmuligheter i fjellet vis avis hotellet. Start før sola når ned i dalen (0800) og etter en halv time med stigning på lukket vei har du behagelig terreng i alle retninger, og med fantastisk utsikt. ps. Vi hadde en følelse at alle som jobbet på hotellet gjorde sitt beste for at vi skulle ha det bra.

Vi valgte dette hotellet for vår juleferie 2011, to voksne og to barn på 3 og 8 år. Hotell betjeningen var imøtekommende og det var flotte rom med god plass for oss fire. Vi hadde rom med markterrasse ut mot tennisbanen og det var helt ok. Barna koste seg i bassenget og vi deltok på vanngym en av dagene. Baren Discovery hver dag kl 20 var pobpulært. Det er stor pågang til SPA, så bestill to dager i forveien. Puerto de Mogan sentrum var sjarmerende og uten de pågående selgere som det er mange av i Puerto Rico og Playa. Det var mange spennende resturanter men vi vil spesielt anbefale La Tabona, her spise vi god Tapas. Vi kommer nok tilbake til dette hotellet, og det kan trygt anbefales.

Last year we wrote that that the apartments were beginning to look tired. I was therefore delighted when we arrived at the Cordial Mogan Valle Apartments in November '11 to see that investment in the facilities had continued, with new loungers and faux-grass by the pools, and a children's play area. We were a little less pleased to see that the loungers on our balcony were not only original but were broken such that they would not remain upright. However, upon reporting this to reception a very pleasant and hugely apologetic staff member from maintenance arrived within a short time and immediately remedied the problem. This really is a great establishment, well run with friendly staff. The only downside is that the apartments, and the resort more generally, just get busier and busier every year.

Hola a todos, mi nombre es Mauro, ayer llegue tras una semanita de descanso en los apartamentos Mogan Valle en Las Palmas. Os cuento mi experiencia. Este año, por circunstancias, no había podido coger vacaciones todavía, estaba reventado y necesitaba descansar ya que el año había sido muy duro. Mi mujer seleciono Mogan ya que la temperatura en estas fechas, segun decía la gente era la mejor de todas las islas. LLegamos a los apartamentos y la recepción fue como su propio nombre indica, muy cordial (sin prisas, con copita de cava, atencibon esquesita y explicando todas las dudas de mi mujer durante más de 10 minutos). Subimos al apartamento, muy cómodo, gran terraza, amplio y muy limpio (por poner algún punto de mejora, comentaré que la televisión del apartamento un poco antigua y con solo cinco canales nacionales). Durante toda la semana hemos recibido cariño, nos hemos sentido como en casa, en los desayunos, un bufete espectacular, Eugeni, Rambon, Coni,......, todos los camareros nos cuidadban con un cariño sincero, que me llego al corazon. A nuestra hija Jimena que tiene 2 añitos, la cuidaban como si fuese su propia hija, con un cariño que me sorprendio muchísimo. En las comidas, Zoraida, Sandra y Juan, se desvivian por que no nos faltase nada, antes de yo pedirlo, Zoraida ya me estava trayendo my postre favorito (helado de tres bolas con sirope de todo, eso si light con un sobrecito de sacarina). Jimena se le ha pasado pipa jugando en el parque de bolas que tienen en la terraza mientras Moni y yo nos tomabamos un refresco en una mesita charlando de nuetras cosas y viendo jugar a nuestra hija. Por la noche los espectáculos eran muy divertidos, y para todos los públicos, equilibristas, bailarines, música en vivo...... . Justo en frente de los apartamento, hay un Supermercado, donde pudimos comprar todo lo que nos hacía falta sin tener que coger el coche para nada. Las piscinas muy buenas, una para niños donde Jimena se lo paso muy bien jugando con todos los niños que había en los apartamentos (que eran muchos). El ambiente, sanisimo, familiar, con mucha vida (muchas familias), educadísimo, tanto por parte del personal de hotel como por parte de los clientes. El director del hotel, ofrecio una copita de cava, para poder saludar y conocer personalmente, uno por uno, a todos los clientes, escuchando personalmente si tenian alguna queja (y solucionandola inmediatamente, que es lo que más me sorprendio). RESUMEN: HE VUELTO NUEVO, DESCANSADO, FELIZ, HE DEJADO AMIGOS EN MOGAN, MI FAMILIA A DISFRUTADO, VOLVERE. AGRADEZCO A TODO EL PERSONAL DEL HOTEL LA FANTASTICA SEMANA QUE HE PASADO. GRACIAS.

We have just returned from a weeks holiday (2 adults and 2 children) having enjoyed our stay at this resort and appartments. We received a very friendly and genuine warm welcome from the reception staff who were very efficient throughout our stay. We had booked a two bedroomed appartment on a self catering basis. We were allocated an appartment on the top floor which exceeded our expectations by some margin. We can only endorse the other positive comments made by fellow contributors. Our appartment was serviced/cleaned regularly with soaps/towels being replaced etc. Very impressed with the housekeeping regime. We decided to take breakfast on the first morning which offered a good range of choice to cater for most nationalities. Only minor critisism is that we found some of the ingredients to be a little low rent and would single out the "Tropical" fruit juice for special critisism! Outside space very well designed and landscaped. A choice of 3 swimming pools (unheated) and tennis courts. Mogan Port and Marina are approximately 15 minutes walk from the appartment complex. A comprehensive choice of restaurants along the Marina to choose from. There is a gently sloping sandy beach within a horeshoe shaped cove and so swimming is very safe for children. Sun loungers etc are available to hire. There is a large weekly market on Fridays. A word of caution...There is a time share development in the nearby resort of Anfi whose lovely representatives did have a habbit of popping up when least expected as we travelled around the island. They were a bit of a pain, but didn't spoil an otherwise exceptional holiday. We are already thinking of making a return visit next year!

We visited Cordial Morgan Valle 10 - 17 October and had a wonderful stay. We're a family of four (our children are ages five and three), we had a one bedroom apartment which was lovely and spacious - the children slept on the fold out sofa bed (two single beds) and we had the bedroom - plenty of room, massive balcony. We were in block 9D - great, very quiet although resort full. Our apartment was maybe a little far from the pools, but really no problem getting down to them and can't complain at all. No problem getting sunbeds whenever we wandered down. Hob, microwave, fridge made apartment very easy for self catering. Cheap supermarket very close with everything you could need. Maid service great, everything very clean and new. Kids club Tuesday - Sunday 11am - 1pm - our five year old went once and loved it, but we were usually out exploring at this time so we didn't get the chance to get back, though he asked daily to return! There were also pool events for kids in the afternoon about 3pm. A soft play on level one and kids disco nightly. Perfect family accommodation. Three lovely pools, plus kids pool. Staff really friendly and helpful. Only thing we had particulary hot weather while we were there and with no air con nights were a little on the warm side, but ceiling fans and open balcony doors cooled things down. We ate out and about or in our apartment so can't comment on hotel food. Puerto Morgan itself is the perfect holiday destination - the beach and harbour are fantastic, kids loved the Golden Shark submarine trip. Lovely restuarants round beach and harbour. We also went to Aqualand at Maspalmos - kids loved it and the water park close by at Taurito, which was great too. Took the ferry to Puerto Rico and hired a boat there. Loads of options there for boat trips / dolphin spotting. Can't recommend Puerto Mogan and the Cordial Mogan Valle enough for other young families especially. Honestly one of our best holidays we've had!!

Fantastic apartments in a beautiful location. Excellent reception and restaurant staff. Breakfast good. Huge balconies we stayed on top floor so had one of the best with the best view.

We've rated this as excellent for a few reasons. Interestingly not because it is the most luxurious place we have ever stayed or even because it is typical of the accomodation we normally choose or even because it offers the best food. No - in reality our reason is quite simply - because it does exactly what it promises. Yes it might seem a bit confusing when you arrive - "how many lifts to room 843" ??? Not as bad as it seems and the stairs (if you choose not to use the lifts) provide a great work-out - ouch my thighs really hurt on day 2 - it is easy really. The rooms - spotless and well thought out. Important things - water always hot, cleaning done for you, beds really comfy, black out curtains, safe, huge balcony offering private sunbathing or eating, outdoor shower, shade or sun, peace and quiet, fridge etc. etc. Pools - 3 of them with excellent facilities. Staff - sooo nice and very efficient - hardly knew they were there but you could tell they had cleaned everything to within an inch of its life. As a couple needing a stress-free week, the room (and indeed Mogan) offered us everything we could have wished for. Less appealing for us but no big issue was breakfast - very good food and service but too many parents who just don't respect that not everyone wants to share their kids. We have total respect for those beautifully behaved and respectful children and their parents - and there were many of them but the minority......oh their teachers are in for a treat !! I'm afraid we couldn't face the dinner offering or the entertainment room at night but no criticism as (again) the hotel was clear on what it offered. Not sure about the chill out zone being situated next to the childrens play area but I am sure it was well used. In summary this really is a good spot. We popped next door to their more luxurious hotel but once we saw the guests packed in around the pool we knew we had made a good decision especially as our plan was to eat out in the evenings. Quite simply we are glad we saved the extra money for our food and drink budget. Well done Cordial Mogan Valle. We may not be back (there are too many places in the world to visit) but we will be sending a few people your way.

I won't bore people with too many details about this hotel as I can only concur with all of the positives from previous reviewers. I stayed in August with my family and we took 2x 1 bedroom apartments. We requested high level, quiet locations with the 2 apartments being near to each other. We got 9th floor adjoining.... you can't say fairer than that. The reception staff were fabulous and friendly when we arrived... while we were there... and as we were leaving. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble. The cleaners were again friendly and thorough we had absolutely no qualms with them. The rooms are cleaned every day apart from Thursdays and Sunday, the towels are changed every other day and the bedding is changed twice a week. The hotel has a very friendly feel about it with seemingly happy staff as they are always smiling. The restaurant is of a good quality with a varied menu and always a choice of 3 fresh meats or fish cooked to order to go alongside the usual buffet style food and service. The waiting staff again were friendly and professional... you should see how quickly they move if anything is spilt on the floor! The restaurant is headed by a brilliant manager (Eugenio), he has that magic gift in that he is able to converse and joke with adults and children alike no matter what nationality they are. To give you some idea of the service, on our last night,we told Eugenio that we would be leaving fairly early the following morning and so would be into breakfast 'first thing'. He asked if we wanted the restaurant opening early as he would get staff in and open it before the normal 8.00 opening time. We didn't need that BUT he was serious. The hotel manager is also very unassuming and friendly I had the opportunity to have a few chats with him (but apologies as I did not get his name). He obviously leads by example. Just a tip on the restaurant, it has 2 sittings for dinner. If you have young children you want the first sitting and if not you want the second. Now to try and ensure this, it may be wise to make your request when you book the hotel, so that they can allocate the correct sitting, we were allocated the first sitting, but managed to change ..thanks Eugenio. Obviously it makes things easier for him and the hotel if they are forewarned. Any downsides to this hotel? unfortunately yes, but it was due to too many unruly children that were running around in the restaurant which caused havoc, not the fault of the hotel but of their parents. And just for information I am a parent of 2 boys so I am not anti-children. Too make matters worse the biggest culprits seemed to be English. The resort is quietish.... don't be fooled, there are a number of restaurants and shops and the beach was probably 80% full most days. It was certainly busier than we expected after reading some of the previous reviews. True most of the restaurants and bars seemed to close by 11:00pm, but we just made sure that we had a stock of drinks in the apartments and if we fancied a late night we stayed out on our extremely large balconies, mind you as the balcony lights went out at 11:00 also we spent a lot of time looking at the stars. Air Conditioning? No, but we only found this to be problematic for the first couple of days, bearing in mind we were experiencing temperatures of 35+ degrees, we adapted and got used to it. Would we go back...... too true, we are already saving up for next year. Would we recommend to others ..... yes, absolutely

My husband & I stayed here last week and thought it was fabulous, we had a fantastic time. The apartments are huge, clean and well equipted for self catering needs. I had concerns over there not being any air conditioning, (though I know you can rent air con units from the hotel) but I was wrong, the celling fans were amazing keeping us cool all night, as well as being able to keep the patio door open which you can't with air con. We had a room on the 2nd floor it had great garden/pool views & the mountains beyond that, the balcony was massive 3-4 time bigger than your average balcony, we had 2 sun loungers, 4 dinning chairs and a glass topped paito table and a glass topped coffee table, and still we had plenty of room not to mention the outdoor shower! There was plenty of shade on the balcony as there were 2 canopys offering plenty of shade from the burning sun, these could be adjusted as desired, fabulous. The pools were very well kept, clean and tidy and very well maintained the same can be said for the fantastic gardens that surrounded the apartments and pool areas. There was plenty of room pool side with loads of sun loungers, chais and parasols you never felt crampt or Claustrophobic. The main restaurant offered top quality fresh food for the evening buffet, which was constantly replenished, and such variation/choice, unlike some places where you get them same food choices day after day. The only disapointment I have to make (petty it might seem) is the mexican restaurant wasn't open as it was closed for winter!!!! 15 mins walk and your on the Harbour/beach front, so much to offer down there also not forgetting the are 2 very well stocked supermarkets within short walking distance of the hotel. All in all I would definatley stay there again.

Visited resort in August with wife and 2 year old child. Had a wonderful holiday and will definately be returning. Couple of negatives first - drinks in the bar are expensive and service is not always the quickest. The evening entertainment is not great - so generally be prepraed to have a wander round the town. Also - if you are on the ground floor then there is nothing to separate the balconies which mean you can experience fellow guests wandering past your window as a short cut back to the room. We visited on a half board + basis - and have to say the selection of food in the hotel was fantastic. Dinner every night offered a wide variety of fish/ meat/ veg - and the grill where you have your own food cooked was excellent. There were generally no queues (except for one evening where the restaurant opened late) and meals were over quick enough that young children shouldn't get bored/ restless. The beach is no more than a 10 minute stroll away - I would recommend if you intend to visit the beach regularly then you should purchase an umbrella in the shops on route as it costs up to 9 euros a day for 2 loungers and umbrella on the beach. The beach does get quite busy but if you are there before 12 you will get a decent spot. The selection of restaurants at the beach is excellent and we didn't have a bad meal at all. The drinks are very pricey though - up to 4 euros for a soft drink which in the heat can make for an expensive lunch. On the walk down to the beach you will pass by a sign for a barbecue restaurant (Zona Verde). It wasn't until the last night we visited - what a mistake. We all wished we had gone before as the food was excellent and the staff were friendly. It was amazing the effort the chef put in to getting the food just right. Will certainly be visiting this restaurant again. Also visited la taberna and found the food good. The room itself is very spacious and comfortable - you shouldn't need the air conditioner as the fans keep the room cool enough (just). Other reviwers have mentioned cockroaches and beasties etc - this wasn't our experience. There is also a soft play for kids to play in - though randomly and without warning it seemed to close - no real pattern. Overall - an excellent holiday - and will definately go back.

we stayed here at peak time in august and i can honestly say it didn't feel over crowded.we had a ground floor pool view apartment which we requested,it had a smaller patio area but was private,spotless and ideal for our children.the canopy over the patio offered shade which kept the apartment cool and private.we stayed on the full board plus option,with two children it was a super idea and worked well for us,as we ate the food i feel i can give an honest opinion!the dining room was spotless,the staff absolutely fab,great with the children (hi 5 to eugenio the restaurant manager and his staff!)they could not do enough to help,the food was varied and fresh.the breakfast you would be hard to beat,catered for all tastes.we saw a total of 3 cockroaches in the whole of the holiday,none of which were in the apartment (and we were on the ground floor!)puerto mogan is beautiful,a leisurely walk from the complex.went into puerto rico one day couldn't wait to get back to the quiet and relaxing puerto mogan,didn't encounter any timeshare touts here but puerto rico you get hassled.this is a lovely place to come whatever your family set up,many different nationalities and very friendly.hiper dino the supermarket over the road has everything you could need and v cheap.when we were collected to go to the airport at the end of the holiday we stopped at 5 other places to pick-up and can honestly say we are thrilled with the choice we made,would go back again without question.thankyou to all the staff as they were lovely and helpful,we had a great holiday and met some super people.go try and make your own decision you wont be dissapointed.

An Expedia Traveler ,
Insgesamt (Lage, Größe, Sauberkeit, Freundlichkeit des Personals, ruhige Nächte, reichhaltige Büffets, schöner Strand und Geschäfte in der Nähe, Bushaltestelle gegenüber) ein sehr gelungener Urlaub. Einzige Mankos neben der Poolanlage: Aufgrund der Terrassenförmigkeit der Anlage braucht man 4 verschiedene Aufzüge, mit denen man immer 1-3 Etagen weiter kommt, um in die weiter oben gelegenen Apartments zu kommen. Der Gepäcktransport bei An- und Abreise ist daher etwas mühsam. (Wir wohnten im 8.Stock.) Wir hatten auch schon ähnliche Hotels, in denen uns dabei geholfen wurde! Beim Abendbüffet gibt es 2 Essensgruppen, wobei man einer von beiden zugeteilt wird. Die erste Gruppe isst bereits um 18.30 Uhr, was für den Süden viel zu früh ist. Außerdem wird die 1. Essensgruppe vom Personal möglichst schnell durchgeschleust (ständig fragen die Kellner, ob man mit dem Essen fertig ist), um Platz zu machen für die 2. Gruppe, die um 20.15 Uhr isst (sehr viel entspannter und in deutlich angenehmerer Atmosphäre als Gruppe 1). Leider besteht keine Möglichkeit, z.B. um 19.30 Uhr zu essen und danach noch einen Einkaufsbummel zu machen. (Bis die 2. Gruppe mit dem Essen fertig ist, sind die Läden geschlossen.)

Spent a lovely 2-week holiday at Cordial Mogan Valle in a 1-bedroom apartment. We liked the apartment. It was bright thanks to big windows. The balcony was large, the largest we ever had. It was really comfortable with sunloungers on your own balcony. It's true that the sun reaches the balcony first in the afternoon, but that also means your apartment doesn't get that very hot either. Kitchenette has most utensils you need. We were lucky to get an apartment that had window in both kitchenette and bathroom, so we could ventilate the aptm properly. The beds were ok, not as soft as we would have liked. But the sofabed was really nice, you could open only the other bed (two separate mechanisms) and the standard of sofa was best we ever had in a hotel or apartment. Hotelfacilities was good. Pools were nice and not too cold. There was self-service laundies in both wings (north and south) with washing and drying = easy holiday. With laundry available you don't have to bring your entire wardrobe even if you're staying for a longer holiday ;-) And we took the oppertunity to do our laundry just before going home, so we just unpacked our (newly washed) clothes straight into wardrobe. Before our trip we had no idea how close the superstore was, it was actually right on the opposite side of the pedestrian street going to the beach, and apr. 100 meters from the Mogan Valle's main entrance. The staff was friendly and always helpful. Mogan Valle is a nice 10 min stroll from the beach. The marina in Puerto de Mogan is truly a real gem! Nice and we did have a lovely holiday without any mumbo-jumbo-nick-nack-junk-sellers attacing you!

Vi valgte en stuelejlighed og fik nr. 136, som nok var den bedst placerede. Ugenert, men kun 5m til den børnevenlige pool. Med 2 voksne og een på 2 1/2 og een på 4 var det perfekt. Lejligheden var fint indrettet og velfungerende. Selvom køleskabet ikke var gjort rent da vi kom, blev det fixet indenfor 1 time efter anmeldelse til receptionen. Der er ingen air-con - den skal lejes, så det skal man være opmærksom på. Hotellet ligger lige ved siden af et stort supermarked, så det er nemt at tanke op. Det er generelt rent og pænt, og der går konstant folk rundt og samler op og rydder området - dejligt. Morgenmaden var rigtig god - overvældende - med frisk frugt, omelet pr. bestilling, masser af tilbehør mv. Vi prøvede ikke aftensmaden, men den så ikke særligt spændende ud. Med 900 meter til havnen og stranden, hvor vi kunne svælge os i spændende restauranter betød det ikke så meget. Der er masser af "hotelservices" såsom poolbar, restaurant mv., ellers kan man selv medbringe sine drinks til poolen og spare lidt penge. Der var børneaktiviteter hver dag fra 3år og minidisco hver aften, så vores unger fik lidt andet inspiration end forældrene. Generelt kan det bestemt anbefales for en børnefamilie!

Apartment - we stayed in a one bedroom with two young children. It was spacious & stylish. The kids had the twin room & we took the sofa bed, it was easy to assemble & really comfortable. There was access to the balcony from the bedroom & the lounge. The balcony was the whole length of these two room, it has a table & chairs, a couple of sunbeds & an outside shower. We all loved the outside shower feature. It had no iron & just a ceiling fan. There was no air con in the hotel, the ceiling fan was ineffective, so we purchased a couple of fans from the supermarket at £15 each. There is a large reasonably-priced supermarket just in front of the hotel. There was plenty of free parking. It was a short stroll to the beach & marina - both were gorgeous. It's a nice walk through a street market to the town. Those less mobile would struggle to walk this distance. The marina was very pretty with many small bridges & troughs of flowers, it's easy to see why it's known as "little Venice". We got a boat across to Puerto Rico - we wish we'd just stayed in Mogan as it was far prettier & no-one hassling you for time-share/clubs/excursions etc. We had lunch in the top of a lighthouse shaped restaurant, service was slow, but the setting was awesome. We had half board, the food was very good, great choice & the staff were friendly & helpful. In particular, the reception staff were excellent. There was a good kids disco with various nationalities catered for. We caught a couple of shows e.g. Robbie Williams take-off act, but the shows were a bit late for the kids. The whole resort was lovely & clean. We loved the infinity pool, it felt luxurious & there were plenty of sun beds always available.

This was the first time my girlfriend and i had ever been to Gran Canaria and i think we definitely made the right choice coming to these apartments! The apartments were modern, spacious,huge balcony and very clean (apart from a few cobwebs here and there), the sunbeds on the balconies were a bonus, pretty standard cooking equipment but it was clean and well stocked..we were self catering so never used anything more than the toaster and kettle so cant really comment on if the hobs and microwave were any good! Air con would of been nice but we managed with the fans. In the day we'd pull the blinds on the balcony down to keep the sun out and this seemed to cool it down a lot. We were on the top floor which gave fantastic views of everything but it was a total maze finding the room at 11pm when we arrived even with a map! 4 lifts later we got there and it was worth it! We stayed mainly by the infinity pool on level 3 as this was quieter and we could always get a sunbed at whatever time of day which is unheard of usually in mid July! The view from this pool was fantastic..although the pool water was very salty. It was nice and quiet until the weekend when the Spanish invaded the hotel..it then got very noisy as whole families seemed to take over the infinity pool! The only grumble of the complex would be the reception staff who seemed quite unfriendly and abrupt whenever we had to ask them about anything..when we arrived there was nobody at the desk and had to shout into the back room as the receptionist was having her supper by the looks of it! Cant comment on the food as we ate out every night Puerto Mogan is very nice, pretty streets near the harbour were nice to walk around, we found the Irish restaurant previously mentioned our favourite, the food was excellent and not too pricey and the staff were very nice and helpful, and the English waiter there was really nice and spoke to us whenever we went in about our holiday. The Italian behind the beach La Cicala was very nice as well, we were slightly more impressed with this one than La Bruschetta who everyone kept raving about! We went on the ferry to Puerto Rico which we only lasted an hour in as this was very commercial and scruffy and this made us even more glad we chose Puerto Mogan!

Have just returned from the Mogan Valle Apartments which was our third visit and we went to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday couldn't ask for a better place to be.. Still as fab as ever. If you want total relaxation this is the place for you. The apartment has everything you need and fantastic terraces. Perfect. Hope to be back soon.

runandbecome,
We have been to Gran Canaria quite a few times, but after being to Puerto Mogan would not go anywhere else. The apartments are fantastic. They are spotlessly clean, have enormous (and I do mean enormous) balconies and we found them to be very quiet an peaceful. There is no air-conditioning, but you can hire a unit, although it is fairly noisy. However, being on a high floor meant we were able to leave the balcony door open at night, so not really a problem. The staff are wonderful, very helpful, incredibly polite and professional. The whole complex has a very chilled out vibe, perfect for a relaxing holiday. Cannot comment on the entertainment provided at the apartments, as we do not do 'hotel entertainment' - ever! I cannot comment on the food available as we were self-catering and ate out every night. Puerto Mogan has a wonderful selection of restaurants, and tapas bars. There are a few places which serve the usual 'British fare' ie chips with everything and Sunday roast (yuck - stay at home if you want to eat that sort of stuff). The fish and seafood in the restaurants is particularly fantastic and the canarian potatoes with mojo sauce - to die for. One restaurant in particular 'La Lonja' at the marina may not be much to look at but the service and food is amazing, great tapas. If you are into walking directly opposite the apartments there is road which zig-zags up to the top of the hill, there is a barrier at the bottom to stop cars going up, so is very quiet and the view from the top is very worthwhile. At the top of the hill you can either follow the road which takes you along the top or can take a left at the top of the hill and follow a dirt track down to a lighthouse from which you can get great views of Tenerife an Mount Teide. There is a shopping centre opposite the apartments which only has about a quarter of the units filled , real shame - built at the wrong time and probably in the wrong place. The Hiperdino supermarket is very well situated just across from the apartments, the staff here leave a lot to be desired, when you give a smile and say 'hola' all you get is a grunt - if even that. We were quite shocked at just how quiet the resort was. We have been to the Canaries many times before in July, August, October, and have never found it to be so quiet, that goes for the restaurants as well - just shows the recession really is bitting. We only did one trip which was the jeep safari as we have done one in Lanzarote, Tenerife and thought it only fitting to do Gran Canaria as well. The driver we had was fantastic, great fun and a complete nutcase. Lunch is provided at lovely local bar high up in the moutains and there is chance to go swimming at a lake as well. However, a word of warning - do not repeat DO NOT go on this trip if you are of a nervous disposition. There is an off road portion to the safari, I thought perhaps we would tootle around the sand dunes - ha boy was I wrong. The off road portion takes you way up into the mountains, and it really is off road, a dirt track with massive potholes and boulders, no barrier and a crumbling edge. The most disconcerting thing about the road though is that as you are skidding and bouncing along the road you are literally inches from the edge and then nothing, just straight down for a few hundred feet - great fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Put it this way I laughed most of the way round this portion of the safari but it was a nervous almost hysterical sort of 'oh my god I am going to die' laugh. I would recommend these apartments without hesitation to anyone. If you appreciate good service, incredibly professional, polite and welcoming staff, spotlessly clean apartments, a fantastic chilled out, relaxed atmosphere then look no further, the Cordial Mogan Valle is the place to stay.

Myself, my wife and our 2 kids (5 &3) stayed in a double room for 12 nights in the beginning of July and we couldn't have asked for a better spot. Check-in was friendly and efficient. It included the glass of bubbly or orange juice and the map to the room! Finding rooms can be a little confusing at first and I met a few lost souls. But if you have a look around you quickly get used to the layout and even find a few short-cuts. The double room was excellent. It was clean and comfortable. The kids room had two single beds and we had a large double. There were two bathrooms ours was en-suite with two sinks and a large corner bath. The kitchen is well equipped. Turn the fridge up when you get there. Ours was initially set at 2 which is much too low for the climate. Kept ours up a 6 for nicely chilled food and drinks. Cleaning was also friendly and efficient but don't forget these are self catering apartments so some sweeping and cleaning is recommended to keep the place nice. We hired air-conditioning for 100 for the 12 nights. A great spend. It will only cool a small area at a time and the place heats up once turned off but it was great for the bedrooms to help the kids get to sleep or for chilling out in the sitting area on a hot afternoon. Although there are 3 pools, we only used the one with the kids pool which was great, the kids loved it. There's entertainment each evening in the bar but we were usually back from dinner too late for this. It's on quite early as the place shuts down at about 11pm. It is a nice easy stroll to the beach and harbour where we ate nearly every night. If you eat too much and fancy a taxi back it only cost us 4 euro. We got hooked on one place called Bar Marina (Dennehy's) and I hope to review this and a couple of other places and activities we tried while in Gran Canaria so please check my profile for further reviews. The Hiper Dino supermarket across from the apartments is very handy and should have all you need. Get there early if you want the fresh breads! The Spar towards town is great too but you can't beat the convenience of Hiper Dino. To address the issue of ants and cockroaches, this is a hot island so they cannot be avoided completely. The locals all agree it is perfectly normal. A few ants came into the kids room on the first morning so we just bought an insect spray and treated the room. The odd one appeared after a couple of days so I just resprayed every 2 to 3 days to deter them. We had one large cockroach one morning as I had left the bathroom window open - just caught it in a glass and put it outside. You should see plenty when walking around town at night but again this is perfectly normal - they try to keep out of your way! For nicer wildlife - the butterflies and birds in the gardens are plentiful and at night if you look to the sky you can see owls soaring. I don't know what breed they are but I spotted them nearly every night. Please contact me if you would like further info on the apartments of the area.

We stayed at Cordial Mogan Valle for a week and had a brilliant time!The lack of air conditioning in the room didn't bother us as we had the ceiling fans and kept the curtains and balcony closed when we went out to keep the rooms cool.The kitchen was excellent with a kettle,coffee maker,toaster,microwave and 2 hob cooker.There is also plenty of cuterly,plates,bowls,pans and even a tea pot and egg cups!The balcony was huge with 2 sun loungers and a table with 4 chairs.We also loved the outdoor shower!In terms of Pueto De Mogan it is a beautiful fishing village and we enjoyed walking to the beach and harbour for dinner.We had lots of cocktails in Zoo bar and the staff are very friendly especially Sam from Newcastle!We enjoyed the market on Friday morning and also went over to Playa De Ingles for a night out to Caz Bar.A taxi for 4 cost us 35 euros which wasn't too bad.In regards to the hotel entertainment it wasn't brilliant but fair play to the staff as they put a lot of effort into organising them.The 3 pools are great as well,we spent a lot of time by the infinity pool as it was quieter.The food from the snack bar was tasty too and we only saw a few cockroaches in the hotel premises and none in our room! I will def be returning at some point!

esinedharry,
We arrived at the hotel and were immediately offered a wonderful glass of cool Champagne. Check in was easy and the staff member, 'Marcelo' was so helpful and informative it was a pleasure to speak with him. Our apartment was not quite ready so we were given another glass of Champagne and invited to sit and relax. When the apartment was ready we made our way to it and found it easily. I was so pleased when we entered, the apartment was bright, well furnished and VERY clean. One of the best we have ever stayed in. Later that evening a complementary bottle of Champagne was delivered to us as an apology for the slight delay when we arrived. What a super customer related service. The whole stay was superb, the staff wonderfully helpful and the location and accommodation, PERFECT.

We enjoyed a 7 night break in these apartments on a self catering basis. Very pleasing decor, good quality furnishings and fitments and an overall impression of thoughtful planning. Kitchenette was perfectly adequate, despite the absence of an oven; the twin hob and a microwave were fine for snacks and lunches. It was a pleasure to have breakfasts and light meals on our terrace (we were on the ground floor beside the pool in the 'quiet section'). Having briefly called in to the main dining room one morning, we were glad we avoided the din! The grounds were well maintained by the hardworking team, our maid did a brilliant job in keeping the apartment clean and tidy, maintenance men carried out a swift repair of a broken kitchen cupboard and reception staff, in the tastefully designed and spacious foyer, were friendly and professional. Entertainments were satisfactory, we really enjoyed the archery session and would have tried the rifle shooting but it was cancelled. Only tried the evening cabaret style entertainment once. As expected it was a bit cheesy but quite entertaining and the 3 female performers danced and sang their hearts out. In fact I thought it was tough on them that so few people attended to enjoy the Abba medleys etc and give them some support. For a good early morning walk, try the twisting mountain road opposite the complex. At the top of the path you can go straight on through a fruit plantation or branch left for a circular walk near the cliff with good views of the town and harbour. Hyperdino was very convenient for stocking up on provisions, with a good choice of products, including non-dairy margarine and soya milk for vegans or those with a lactose intolerance. The Spar was marginally cheaper, with a good selection of reasonably priced but decent wines. Puerto Mogan is a very pretty resort, great for strolling around, 'promenading', people watching, sunbathing and trying out the local restaurants. Saffron on the beachfront was excellent, cool furnishings and decor, tasty healthy food with superb choice for vegans and vegetarians. Enjoy a chilled Amstel in the classic chunky tankard, far nicer in my opinion than the local Tropicana. If you're missing your 'curry fix', we would recommend the Taj Tandoori in the Plaza Shopping Centre opposite the apartments. Other reviewers have said that the town 'shuts down' at around 10pm. Not the case for Bar Bohemia, in Paseo de los Pescadores (walk down to the underground car park section of the walkway, turn right and you're not far away)Swirling green and red lights will entice you in to it's shadowy interior of sofas and easy chairs, fish tanks and African masks. Nice cocktails and chilled out musicians add to the funky vibe where the music goes on well beyond midnight.

We stayed here for 11 nights from 21st April and had a fantastic time. Our room (B810) was huge with an even bigger balcony & a view over the smaller pool. Very well equipped but ladies bring your own hairdryer as the one in the bathroom is useless. TV only has BBC World News and CNN as English channels and you have to ask for the remote control at reception on arrival. We hired the safe which is 14 euros for week or 2.50 a day. Maids were friendly and room was cleaned 5 or 6 times per week with towels changed 3 times and linen twice. Thy even put our washing up in to soak! There is no air conditioning although I believe you can hire a unit. The ceiling fans were mostly adequate in April/May but noisy at night and would have preferred aircon. Would recommend a higher room as these seem to have larger balconies, personally would not want to stay ground level with a very small terrace or just above with a small balcony. The lift system was only complicated on our first day then easily found our way around mostly using the stairs. Reception were very good, sparkling wine on arrival and always helpful with any queries we had. They also organised us to swap our dinner for lunch on a couple of days as we were on half board but wanted to eat elsewhere in the evening. The buffet restaurant is great quality particularly breakfast with a wide choice of fruit, bread, cheeses, meats and cakes together with a range of cooked items. We loved the omelettes and fried eggs cooked fresh in front of you and the pancakes with bacon and maple syrup! The orange juice was actually not watered down and the coffee not like mud (if you want coffee without sugar get a long coffee and add your own milk as the white coffee is already sweetened). Dinner also had lots of choices with salads and soup as starters, fish and meat grilled in front of you, pasta and pizza, vegetables, hot food and a good selection of desserts including cheeses. You just order your drinks and pay for them at the end of your stay. Tiny bit overpriced - 2.10 for water, 2.50 for bottled beer and 9.75 for OK bottle of house wine, wine by the glass 6 euros and about 20 for a decent bottle. You can leave the wine with them though and drink over 2 nights if preferred. The restaurant staff were excellent, always professional and smiling. There are 3 pools here and we used the smaller one on level G/H which seemed a bit quieter, never any problem with sunbeds or shade. There is the infinity one but was a bit too open for us and the larger one was quite crowded with families during our stay. Did not use the spa as begrudged the 5 euro fee just to go in to use the jacuzzi, sauna or gym. The list of treatments we saw seemed quite expensive. There was no real entertainment on offer apart from a minidisco for the kids which was always busy. We did play pool (1 euro per game) and there was table tennis and tennis available at a cost. The bar did not seem to be used by many guests in the evenings as all drinks were overpriced and the staff were quite miserable. However the snack bar during the day was reasonably priced with large portions and very friendly staff. We usually went to the sportsbar opposite for a large beer at 3 euros and a few games of pool or walked down to the harbour area to Bar Marina, a friendly Irish bar/restaurant where you could get Guinness or Kilkenny for 4 euros. We sat and watched the Royal Wedding there and it was a lovely atmosphere. Would recommend getting the ferry across to Puerto Rico, about half hour each way for 10 euros return. Did not think much of PR itself, too many timeshare touts and commercial centres, but OK for a few hours. We did the Sioux City trip with our rep Thomas Cook but very overpriced at 54 euros, would not recommend. Nearly 2 hour journey in a very hot coach round those windy roads did not bode well to eat a BBQ and all inclusive drinks! The venue itself was OK with good entertainment but not really worth it. Puerto de Mogan is a very pretty quiet relaxing place with lots of good restaurants and a variety of shops. La Bruschetta on the seafront is in our opinion the best restaurant, we had our wedding anniversary meal there and was perfect from start to finish, fantastic food and service. Some of the restaurants in the harbour area are quite expensive but all looked good quality. The Hyperdino supermarket opposite the hotel had great selection of products so used that for water, wine, beer, soft drinks, fruit, icecream etc which we stored in the apartment. We only saw 3 cockroaches during our stay on the walkway from the harbour to the hotel. Never anything in the room or hotel itself, everywhere was very clean and well kept. Would have no hesitation in highly recommending this hotel and resort and will be going back again year after year! ONE FINAL WORD OF WARNING ABOUT LAS PALMAS AIRPORT ON JOURNEY HOME! WE WERE CHARGED 32 EUROS FOR 4 KILOS OF EXCESS BAGGAGE, THEY ARE VERY STRICT AND WE COULD NOT GET OUT OF PAYING (however did overhear others on plane who did not pay so maybe we were very unlucky).

We booked through Miss Ellie's World Travel and they advised to go for the taxi option from Las Palmas airport. It was first class service with no waiting once we had picked up our luggage. There was a 45 minute drive to Mogan which was a beautiful drive through the mountains, being driven by a very polite driver. When we got there the receptionists were very amiable, offering some refreshments whilst the final paperwork was being done. From there, we were directed to our two apartments which were on the bottom floor, right next to the pool which we could basically walk straight out onto. The food is, quite simply, INCREDIBLE - if not repetitive at times. Nobody takes any notice of how much you eat of anything. Fresh steaks, fillets of fish and shish kebabs are grilled in front of you to order, along with just about every accompaniment you could wish for on the buffet section for the evening meal and unlimited full English breakfast and fresh pancakes etc for breakfast. When you've finished a plateful, one of the exceptionally polite and friendly waiters or waitresses will come and whisk your plate away, then you get yourself another one and pile it up again! If there's a downside though, it's that you have to pay for all drinks which are fairly pricey - stick to water though and you get better value for money. Then we come to the apartments themselves. Tastefully decorated with contrasting colour walls and paintings, there's an exceptionally homely feel around. TV isnt great quality but that doesn't really matter. Kitchenette is very user friendly, but does lack an oven if you wanted to do some self catering, although why would you with such an amazing restaurant?! Shower is the most powerful we've ever experienced, with the hot water never running out. Maid service excellent, with the rooms cleaned 5 times a week and beds & towels changed twice a week. Its about a 15 minute walk to the beach, but basically flat and we never walked there very fast really so you could probably do it a lot quicker - very nice beach it is too. The only wi-fi connection is in the reception area which is basically the biggest lounge area you're going to see in a long long time! Dozens of couches and swivelly chairs which gives some privacy if you want to FaceTime someone or something. We don't drink so couldn't really pass judgment on the bar, but there is live football shown on the big screen when its on which is a good way to spend an evening. There's also a pool and table tennis table outside, although you have to pay to play pool - it can get quite expensive and you haemorrage euros! Not a place for loud entertainment which was great for us, if you want peace and quiet it's the right place but if you want 18-30 entertainment, then look elsewhere. It's great for families and the staff in the restaurant are particularly good and accommodating to children. Overall it was probably one of the best holidays that we've ever had - relaxing and completely stress free, which makes it a 100% must go for you!

We were delighted with our stay. The quality of the staff and their customer care was superb as they were always pleasant, great fun with the kids, and nothing was ever too much trouble. The rooms were a good size, clean and quiet, There was a small kitchenette, which was quite sufficient as we were on half board so only needed little snacks. We were put in a terrace level room (rather than with a balcony) and it suited us as it meant we looked right out on the pool and we had easy access all day, rather than needing to pack up bags and food. The balcony rooms have more room with a generous balcony but are higher up - great for sunbathing and evening drinks if that suits you. The restaurant food was very good. Considering that it is buffet style, it was still pretty good quality with a fantastic array of food and different choices every night. They also do fresh food cooked in the morning and evenings (we were only half board). The kids can choose their own and our 7 year old took great delight in getting his food at meal times. The main pool was a good size but still easy to keep an eye on the children, though it was all one depth, so no shallow end for beginners. But people seemed to cope fine with float aids, and it encouraged others to get swimming. There was also a nice small pool for the babies and toddlers. The level of activities provided were just what we wanted, some pool side children's activities and some short events for adults such as aquagym and rifle shooting. A mini disco most evenings rounded off a lovely day for the kids. We did feel that the "animator" we had was particularly good and he was about to move onto another island, but the types of events were ideal for us. The site is easy walking distance to the beautiful Puerto Mogan, where we swam, went rock pooling, enjoyed the tropical fish in the harbour and the flowers were heavenly. Lots of places to eat and drink. We decided to hire a car, but there did seem to be good public transport, so worth enquiring about. Don't use Gold Car, as we were charged a huge amount of money for a full tank of petrol which we didn't use. Though at least the car was reasonable quality. We highly recommend these apartments to any family looking for a quieter resort, with an emphasis on family enjoyment (rather than putting kids in kids clubs), with an excellent choice of good food and fantastic staff.

Lägenhetshotell med jättetrevlig personal alla kategorier. Med närhet till "ica-handel", Mycket god och omfattande frukost (förbestäld och betald via Apollo) värd varje krona då man stod sig på den hela dagen. Fräscha badrum. Enkelt kök som räcker bra med kyl, micro och två plattor - tyvärr stekpanna och gryta utan jämn botten vilket försämrade funktionen, Vinglas ingår inte i grundsorimentet. Lite väl många byten av hiss för att komma till övre våningarna då de ligger i etage, tar ofta trapporna. Tre bra men inte jättestora pooler varav en är tänkt för mer motions-simmning. Vi är jättenöjda.

Very helpful and friendly staff. The apartment was lovely with good quality furniture and very comfy beds. The balcony was huge and we were high up in block F, floor 8 so lots of sunshine and no noise from the pool etc. We stayed half board and the food was of a good standard. There are 3 good pools which catered for everyone. The sunbeds were plentiful and not usually 'reserved'. An easy 15min stroll to the harbour which has lots of different restaraunts to choose from. Will definetely stay here again in the future.

We enjoyed a wonderful two week stay in this superb complex. The apartment was spacious, clean, well furnished and well equipped. The amenities and facilities are first rate and the food and buffet restaurant service excellent. Above all we appreciated the superb staff service. At all levels the staff were helpful and cheerful and could not do enough to make sure that we enjoyed our stay to the full. The location of the complex is also very good, with views of the hills opposite and an attractive, easy walk to the port and the beach.

All we wanted was to escape for some early spring sunshine and a chance to relax - the Cordial Mogan Valle apartments were perfect for this. Puerto Mogan is a quiet pretty resort based on a small village - very different from the brash and bustling resorts elsewhere. There are many excellent cafes and restaurants by the beach and in the marina, and we enjoyed walking down the lovely tree-lined and paved esplanade from the apartments to the waterfront (about 15 min). We found the apartments to be of exceptional quality - a comfortable bedroom, huge bathroom and spacious, well-furnished lounge/diner area. The kitchenette was good and self-catering is easy due to an excellent large supermarket next to the apartments. Although the complex is large (over 300 rooms), the design is very clever - the apartments have an unexpected feel of privacy and when relaxing on the balcony (enormous, with table and 4 chairs, plus two sun-beds and an outdoor shower!), we were only occasionally aware of other guests. The apartments are set in a deep mountain valley and catch the sun for most of the afternoon and evening, with pleasant mountain views. We liked the bright modern furniture, decor and artwork in the apartments and throughout the hotel. There are two pleasant pools - one simple, smaller pool which is very quiet and another larger pool complex on the ground floor that was popular with families. There was some entertainment and pool activities which looked well-organised, although we didn't use them. All the staff we encountered were excellent - reception and housekeeping were very friendly and efficient. The daily cleaning, change of towels and bedding was much better than we have encountered on many s/c holidays. Overall, this was one of the best holidays of its type that we have experienced and we will definitely return.

From the minute we checked in with a complimentary glass of bubbly to checking out this was a perfect place to spend a chilled out week. Rooms were spacious with good decor and the self catering facilities (even though we did not use them much) were better than we have come across elsewhere, with microwave, kettle and toaster for no extra charge as is often the case. Location is ideal too, just oposite the supermarket, 10 minute or so walk to the centre, five minutes from bus station. A good tip if you arrive on a Monday or a Thursday is the hotel barbecue - really good value at 7.50 Euros and saves the walk back to the port area for an evening meal if you are a bit weary. Pools all good, and no fighting for sunbeds, but this was March, not sure what it is like in high season. We were also very impressed with the size of the balcony, with ample space for the two sunbeds provided, table andchairs and even an outside shower. All very clean too. Excellent.

Have just returned from two weeks at the Cordial Mogan Valle. And what a fantastic two weeks they were! The location of the hotel complex is excellent. Easy walking distance to the lovely beach and marina with its variety of restaurants and shops. The bus station is also within easy walking distance. The hotel complex itself is confusing at first but you do quickly get used to it. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and the apartments were cleaned five days a week so cleanliness was definitely not an issue. The rooms were huge and newly decorated so all in all we could not fault the accommodation. My husband and I were self-catering so we can't comment on the food available in the restaurant or bar areas. In terms of cooking facilities in the apartment they were perfectly adequate for a two week holiday. Yes there was no oven but I have to say we managed perfectly with just the two electric rings and indeed cooked some pretty impressive suppers using fresh local fish. The swimming pools were great and well maintained. There are many daily hotel activities on offer for adults and children and although we did not make use of the evening entertainment we did spend a lovely morning walking with the guide from the hotel who afterwards showed us how to make our own aloe vera cream from the plants we had collected on route. Puerto Mogan itself is beautiful and a very relaxing holiday destination. Things to be recommended are hiring a car to see the breathtaking scenery on the island (and gasp at the amazing mountain roads!) and walking. If you go to the tourist information hut on the beach you will find some mountain trail guides, all free, and the zig-zig walk opposite the hotel is a must. If you like fresh fish you won't be disappointed in any of the restaurants but if you are self-catering do make a special trip to the fishmonger in Senor Elias Street and buy some of the local fish such as bocinegro and sargo. Delicious! Cannot wait to go back to Puerto Mogan and the Cordial Mogan Valle!

Another week of sunshine in our lovely spacious appartment, nothing was too much trouble for the staff they are very friendly and helpful, we asked to change rooms due to us having a palm tree on the balcony, we were moved the next day, we were so comfortable we rarely moved from the balcony. The daily maids work very hard and placed our bath towels in shape of swans which was a lovely touch. The gentleman looking after the tennis courts was so dedicated, with brushing, rolling and hosing down. The pool areas are excellent. We will be back again next year. Added bonus is the supermarket opposite, very handy

Stayed at these apartments for five days in half term week in Feb. We've been to Gran Canaria a lol over the years for some winter sunshine, usually staying In Puerto Rico or Maspalomas. We knew Puerto Mogan as a pretty marina with some great restaurants but since our last visit some eight years ago the place has been transformed with a great beach and super accommodation. Now we'd never go anywhere else. The apartments are spacious, decent sized living room (there were only two of us), reasonable basic kitchen, lovely sized bedroom and bathroom. Really comfy beds and spacious too. The balcony was gorgeous, but if you know GC you know you only get sun in the valley either in the morning or afternoon. We were on the 7th floor (second to top) and got sun from about 2.30 until about 6.30pm - would probably be longer in the summer. We only went to the 'adults' pool - no toddlers, but plenty of under 10s - it was a stunning 25m infinity pool, heated and great for swimming lengths. We didn't find any difficulties finding our way around as some other posters did but we usually took the first life to the third floor and then walked - much quicker and easier. No one 'booked' sunloungers and they were always some free, even in this busy week. We walked down to the beach - about 15mins - along the lovely boulevard every day where it was sunny and deserted in the morning. Great cafes and restaurants around the beach, plenty of choice. Service was delightful at the apartments - although they were too busy to give us a late check out they did offer to store luggage and say we could use the spa to shower and change. Our one bad experience was waiting an hour and a half for a meal in a restaurant on the harbour front - and we eventually walked out. Beware restaurants that look very busy without many staff on - they really can't cope. But would recommend the Zoo bar - lovely people and fun vibe and a little cafe on the beach front near the steps (can't remember the name) for great coffee and ambiance. Didn't eat at the hotel because never do. We're already planning our next trip.

Have just returned from a wonderful week at the cordial mogan valle. Apartments bright clean and spacious, food good and service exceptional especially Marcos head receptionist who did everything possible to make our stay perfect. If you are looking for a peaceful,calm and stylish break this is the place to go.Just a ten minuit stroll from the stunning harbour and pretty beach at peurto mogan. For those self catering there is an excellent hyper market directly opposite the apartments. Boat trips from harbour every hour and very good value .Five minute bus ride to Tauito where there is a water park for children although there are three lovely pools on the complex. If you are looking for wild night life or burger bars this is not the place for you. Definately one of the most delightful trips i have EVER taken. Michelle and family xx

Just came back from a half term break at the Cordial Mogan Valle and what a fantastic break it was. The apartments are spacious and very functional. This large complex is exceptionally clean and tidy and is located just a very pleasant 10 minute stroll to the beach. The breakfasts were excellent and plentiful and the evening meals quite standard, but good. The outstanding feature of the hotel was the quality of the staff. From the moment we were checked in by Marcos at Reception, nothing was too much trouble. We were constantly asked whether we were enjoying our stay and we were also most impressed by all the staff at the restaurant. Even during the busy times the restaurant staff were fully attentive to the needs of all the customers and always worked with a smile on their faces. It is clear that the management have got the ethos of this place just right. My only gripe is that many of the sunbeds around the pool area (at G block) were broken so that you had to lie down horizontally! This was also our first visit to Gran Canaria and I must admit that after last year's disastrous holiday to Playa Blanca I was just a little nervous about what to expect, but I need not have worried as Puerto De Mogan is an absolute jewel in the Canaries. Upmarket, laid back and stunningly pretty around the harbour area, it was as good as any we have visited and I would recommend it wholeheartedly.Would go back to both the hotel and the resort without a doubt.

Excellent place to stay. Spacious rooms. Nice buffet at reasonable prices. Friendly staff. Nice walk to the harbour or have a walk in the mountains opposite Cordial Mogan Valle. Have you ever been in a location where you received a courtesy call after a few days asking if everything was as expected? Are they inventing the term Hospitality again in this nice Gran Canarian location? Is this the trend that every self respecting hotel - resort - complex should follow? I hope so because by asking you are confident to solve any issue there might be in the perception of the guest. And in this location they can because there will not be many issues. Yes the lifts are a nightmare but building on a mountain will probably always need many lifts. Enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Wir haben das Cordial Valle nun schon zum dritten Mal besucht.Das spricht schon für sich. Die Appartements sind sehr geräumig,zwei Schlafzimmer,zwei geräumige Badezimmer, Wohnzimmer mit Küchenzeile und ein großzügiger Balkon mit ausreichender Bestuhlung und Sonnenliegen.Für drei Personen(2 Erw.1Kind) perfekt.Leider klappte es trotz vorheriger Absprache nie,das von uns gewünschte Appartement zu bekommen. Vor Ort wurde versucht uns ein gleichwertiges Zimmer zur Verfügung zu stellen bzw.ein Zimmerwechsel einige Tage später angeboten.Die Anlage macht im großen und ganzen einen gepflegten Eindruck,leider stellen sich schon erste Baumängel ein, die jedoch ständig ausgebessert werden.Es ist eine sehr weitläufige Anlage und die höhergelegenen Zimmer muß man zumindest bei Anreise mit dem Fahrstuhl erreichen. Dieses ist aber trotz vieler Wegweiser kaum möglich,alles sehr verwirrend.Wir selbst haben schon vielen Neuankömmlingen den Weg gezeigt....dieses Mankow besteht schon seid der Eröffnung...es wäre wünschenswert bei Anreise einen Pagen zur Verfügung zu stellen. Die Poolanlage ist ausreichend groß,das Wasser allerdings nicht sehr warm, das Kinderbecken war meines erachtens nicht geheizt. Der Zimmerservice ist sauber, korrekt und freundlich. Die Kinderanimation war erstklassig. Unsere Tochter (5Jahre) hat es jeden Vormittag genossen mit dem Animateur zu malen,basteln oder zu spielen nicht zu vergessen die abendliche Kinderdisco - einfach klasse-.Das Restaurant ist nicht ganz so gemütlich, aber das Essen ist lecker die Auswahl gut. Für jeden Geschmack ist etwas dabei. Der Restaurantleiter "Eugenius" und sein nettes Team lassen keinen Wunsch unerfüllt. Es wird ein umsichtiger,freundlicher,fleißiger Service geboten.Abschließend können wir sagen,wir haben uns sehr,sehr wohl gefüllt und werden auf jedenfall wiederkommen.

From the welcome when we got there until we left the staff were courteous and always smiling. The apartments were well furnished and comfortable and the kitchen well equipt. The three swimming pools were brilliant, our daughter did the yoga and she and I took part in the Water aerobics too. The location was great with a realy good supermarket just over the road. The sea and marina were just 10 mins away with numerous restuarants to try out. Peurto Mogan is described as little venice and the description is bang on. the location is so pretty so much so that we only went out on trips on 2 days. The market on Friday was great, lots to see and buy. I don't think we can say what was best, it was all fantastic. A great place for couples and families alike.

Was greeted with 'champagne' and very helpful staff on reception. After first day reception phoned to ask if we were happy with everything. Even tho' we were there such a short time the apartment was cleaned and towels and bedding were changed.

Our family, grandpa and grandma, son and daughter in law, boy 3 yrs and girl 1 yr stayed for two weeks. We had a two bedroom apartment in section A. We had half pension, breakfast and dinner buffé (or lunch). Good food but the dining room was not so nice, rather noisy and no outside places. Since the location at north there were no sun before 11am. Our balcony had only sun between 3pm and 6pm. The beach in the harbour was very good for small children, no waves. We could walk to the beach on a pedestrian street. Some of the apartments had big balconies and some had more sun. Section E, F, I, J, K and L was faced more to the South West and A, B, C, D, G, H to North West.

we had a superb holiday in the Cordial Mogan Apartments in delightful,unspoilt Mogan Playa.The only gripe was that the beach and harbour are MUCH FURTHER THAN 300 YRDS AWAY,as described! More like almost one mile! Also we booked room with sea-view,but didn't get it,and they wouldn't change us.The only other comment is that it is incredibly difficult to find one's way around the buildings,with lots of walking along long corridors etc. The apartment was fine,but next time we'll be booking a privately owned apartment in the harbour/beach area.

We chose this hotel because of the great reviews here, and were not disappointed. Extremely friendly people, fast service and a bottle of champagne and birthday song (not great singers at the reception, but SOOO nice!!) for my partner when we arrived on her birthday. The appartment was large and super clean. The only thing we were disappointed of was the lack of sun on our balcony. We were situated at the very north of thee complex, and thee sun never reached our balcony at any time of the day (a part from about 50cm between 4-6pm). Also, quite a few sunbeds were also broken at the most northern pool, and the water in our closest pool was very cold the first days of our stay (but this was fixed after that). BUT: the overall experience was GREAT!! Especially because of the amazing staff. Thank you!

Researched this hotel on Trip Advisor and we were encouraged to go and try it. Absolutely no regrets. We were welcomed right from the word go, with a glass of cava and a smile, even though we arrived at 9pm. We were even told that the supermarket across the way would be shutting and the receptionist suggested we leave our luggage in a safe room by the front desk while we shopped. The apartment was fantastic, large lounge, large bedroom, "humungus" terrace and quiet. We had our room cleaned every day and the towels changed at least 3 times. The pools were all nice and clean and we were very close to one. The only bad thing I would say is that the bars were all shut between 4 and 6pm. We would certainly go again.

Trevlig och hjälpsam personal som mottog oss, några pratade tom. svenska. Vi hade bokat en stor tre-rumslägenhet men hotellet hade problem med fukt i dessa lägenheter och erbjöd oss då två stycken lägenheter istället. Samtidigt blev vi kompenserade med frukost och spa. Frukosten var mycket fin och det fanns ett stort utbud av olika rätter. Servicen var på topp och det rådde ordning och reda hela tiden. Hotellet är stort med 3 pooler, varav en var uppvärmd då vi var där. Man får åka hiss mellan de olika våningsplanen, men det finns även trappor. Stora och rymliga utrymmen och superstor balkong med jättefin utsikt om man bor några våningar högre upp. Tysta och fina lägenheter. Vi sov gott i de sköna sängarna. Vi åker gärna hit igen!

hotel is very large and you would expect it to be very busy but here was always a quiet calm about the place and the rooms were great, the beds though are as hard as bricks, rooms were cleaned to high standard and every mmber of staff was lovely, meals to eat in were reasonable and the bbq night is only -50pp great value but the price of drinks will bankrupt you, on the whole will def be back but will take warm pj,s and housecoat as the rooms get very chilly quickly as it loses the sun early on. Mogan is a lovely place, no hills, unlike puerto rico, very pleasant place to stroll in the evening and feels a very safe place.

I stayed at cordial mogan valle with my family, we were there for 1 week. The people in the reception was very helpful and nice, always with a smile on their faces. When we arrived we got champagne. The apartments were very clean and big, with a terrace with to sunbeds, a table w/4 chairs and a shower in the corner. It was water-gym/aerobic in the morning (don't know the name of the instructur but he was very good at motivating people:) do anyone know his name? I'm so curious:p ), kids-club during the day and waterpolo in the afternoon. Something for the whole family! The bar had entertainment some of the nights, mostly for the kids, but fun for everybody. The hotel has 3 swimmingpools, spa, fitness-room, 3 pool tables, tabletennis (ping-pong), and a tenniscourt. You can barrow books in the reception, they have plenty of them and in different languages. It is also free internet in the bar and reception if you want to bring your own pc:) You have to have a key-card to get in or out of the hotel, so no one who doesen't live there can come in to the hotel-area. On the other side of the road of the hotel, it is a really nice road to run or power-walk. On the top of the mountain you can see over the marine.

Stayed 1 week arriving Christmas day, nice clean and recently furnished appartment, good kitchen facilities. Nice clean bathroom with bath & shower, also outside shower on large balcony. Good service daily of room & extensive supply of clean towels. Large supermarket opposite, better choice 5 mins away in SPAR. Indian restaurant opposite EXCELLENT ! Complex has 3 swimming pools & a small spa with jacuzzi & a bit ot peace from the children. We took to the beach at Mogan in prefrence and further away at Amadores an even better beach. car hire via the hotel is very reasonable, good to tour the island which we found charming. didnt to use complex food outlets much as there was virtually no vegetarian options - even at the Gala Dinner - but this was no suprise hence the self catering option and the town has many restaurants includign some "proper" Italians. Our end of the apratmnents very quiet - block G610 - so for earlier posters if you want quiet book away from the bars and hotels. Would definately go again - though never again with Tompson airways - awfull flight faiclities.

My family & I stayed here for 1 week and we all had a lovely relaxing holiday. The Hotel is strangely built off the hillside, and it took us 3 elevators to reach our 9th floor room, as they are staggered towards the mountain side. As reception booked us in, we were offered a glass of champagne or orange juice, which is a nice touch for the weary traveller. Throughout our stay, the staff were consistenly helpful and friendly. The view from the room was really rewarding, as your had a real sense of feedom from the high vantage point, and you could look down towards the sea on your left, or up to the mountains on your right. We were in a 2 x bedroom apartment which was very good / clean. The bedrooms were a decent size. The living / dining area was quite compact, but adequate. Cooking facilities were basic but again adequate. We enjoyed the welcome bonus of 2 x bathrooms. A small downside was no air-conditioning, but in October this wasn't an issue. There were ceiling fans in each room, which at least gave a circulation of air, and opening doors / windows gave a through draft. The balcony was undoubtedly the prize aspect of the apartment. it was the biggest & best we have ever had. 4 x sun loungers / 2 x metal tabels / 8 x metal chairs / 1 x shower (yes a shower! - great for a quick cool-off). Because of the size of the balcony area, there was plenty of scope over the day for getting the sun. Alternatively, if you'd had enough sun, there were awnings overhead with extra shades that you could roll down to suit. These could cover a good amount of the area. meaning you could comfortably be in the sun or in the shade. The choice of 3 pools was nice and we just picked a favourite, based on personal preference. The hotel restaurant food was very good, but our preference would still be a good breakfast there, and eat out in the resort at night. The hotel has a very good supermarket directly across the road. It is around a 15 min flat walk to the beach / marina area, where most of the nightine activity can be found. The resort is picturesque, clean & peaceful, with many overhanging gardens. It has managed to maintain traditional holiday standards, and attracts a good standard of visitor. The beach & harbour are beautiful & surrounded by plenty of bars & restaurants, some with live local musicians. This was our 3rd time in Mogan, previously staying in privately owned apartments, but the Cordial Valle certainly added to our holiday enjoyment this time round. We have already booked for next October, and Marcos (head of reception) has promised us the same room! (cheers Marcos) We would definitely recommend this Hotel, if Mogan is the kind of resort / holiday that people were looking for.

Ubicación excepcional en un entorno muy tranquilo, y a pocos minutos de la fantástica playa de Mogán, junto al puerto conocido como "la Pequeña Venecia". Magnífico mercadillo los viernes por la mañana, dando al lugar un gran atractivo. Con respecto al alojamiento en el establecimiento, decir que ni una sola queja, al contrario, mi familia y yo (3pax), estamos muy agradecidos al Personal por su profesionalidad y calidad para con el cliente al igual que la simpatía que derrochan para que nos encontremos cómodos. Como cliente que soy del complejo desde la inauguración y del Hotel Cordial Mogán Playa, no puedo pedir nada más pues lo que buscaba lo he encontrado con esta cadena. Decir que la habitación es fiel reflejo de las fotos que muestran, muy amplia, acogedora y con todo lo que se necesita, un pedazo de terraza que no he visto en ningún otro complejo, con ducha incorporada y zona de solarium, si bien es cierto que lo único que se echa en falta en verano es el aire acondicionado, por lo demás no le falta de nada. ´Quiero aprovechar la ocasión, para agradecer al personal de mantenimiento, recepción (Sres. Ulises, Marcos, Marisa y Aday), personal de restauración-bar (Sres. Vladimir, Eugenio, Sandra, Ana y Esaú), como no podía faltar al Sr. Simón de Animación y en particular a la Sra.Pilar de la Central de Reservas, la excelente dedicación que derrocharon para con nosotros en todas las ocasiones que los hemos visitado y como no, en estos días del pasado mes de septiembre 2010 que coincidieron con el cumpleaños de mi esposa y nos sorprendieron de forma espectacular y al mínimo detalle.

We stayed at this apartment complex last week and like all the other reviews cannot find anything bad to say. When you are welcomed at the reception with a warm smile and a glass of Cava you know that you are at the start of a great vacation. Marcus, the head receptionist leads his team to perfection and it works. The apartments are clean and well equipped and the terrace/balconies are fantastic, we hardly went to the pool areas as we could relax on the terrace. It is a quiet area and we were never disturbed once by noise or load people and we slept with the window open every night. A short walk to the nearest supermarket which has all the basics and a five minute walk into the town which has another supermarket with slightly more choice. The town itself is lovely, easy to navigate and everything you need. Some fantastic restaurants although you pay for what you get. Our favourite was Seemuschel La Caracola in the port itself. Run by a German couple who know about service, we have never eaten such fantastic fish in the whole of our lives. Tuna and monk fish steaks cooked to perfection, you would think you were eating the best fillet steak. Do not go to Puerto Mogan if you are looking for clubs, pubs and a wild night life, but do go to relax, eat well and enjoy the unending sunshine.

We arrived back this week after two weeks at the Cordial Mogan Valle Apartments.The apartments were very clean and modern. The Supermarket was dead opposite and it was only a ten minute walk to the village which was very pretty,with plenty of eating places. We went on one trip up into the mountains (Island Dreams) which was expensive but well worth the outlay. We were very lucky the day was very clear and from the highest point were able to see Mt Tiede on Teneriffe. The ride up was a bit hairy but well worth it. We spent most days down by the pool rather than on the beach. They were nice and quiet but had to wait for the sun to rise at about 10.30 a.m. The staff were very helpful and could not do enough for you. Our cleaner was excellent, cleaning everyday except thursday and sunday. We were very pleased with the accomodation which was 604 and our balcony was very roomy with 2 sunbeds and a table and 4 chairs. Breakfast was adequate, streaky bacon eggs and toast. There was alternatives there if you didn't want that. We didn't go to any entertainment so I cant comment on that. I do wish that they would put a british entertainment channel on the television rather than BBC World which is repetative and boring.All other nationalities seem to have good programmes.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in June and had such a fabulous holiday we decided to take our mothers and brother with us for a week in September. The hotel is lovely and has everything you need, apartments are well appointed and have lovely huge terraces. We stayed half board and the food was excellent couldn't fault it and plenty for my vegetarian husband to eat. Three pools to choose from. If you want a totally relaxing holiday this is the place to go. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The resort is lovely too, a nice little beach and a pretty harbour to walk around. We are already looking forward to going back next year. Great for a romantic break or with family.

Towyfisherman,
Have just returned from the Cordial Mogan Valle after a fortnights family holiday and want to go back now!. After bad experiences in other self catering apartments, we were really impressed with the cleanliness of these apartments. They were spotless. The staff were all very friendly and always had a smile. The balconys were fantastic. They were huge with a table and chairs for four and two sunbeds (for a two bed apartment) plus an outside shower if you needed to cool down form the sun. Although the complex is quite large it didn't seem busy (and one of our weeks holiday was half term) and noise wasn't a problem either. The ten minute walk into Puerto Mogan was lovely and Puerto Mogan itself is a real gem. It's beautiful, the houses, the flowers, the boats and harbour. It is also very peaceful despite all the tourists. There are lots of restaurants to choose from and a fantastic jewelry shop! If we have the chance we would definately go back to these apartments.

Good quality apartment complex which offers some nice little touches, like a welcome drink at check in and a check-up call after a few days. We were travelling light due to Ryanair flights so missed the nonexistent toiletries in bathrooms nor to they do they provide the option of pool towels (kitchen cleaning pack is good- washing up liquid, cloth/pad and tea towels, it a shame we also packed these items too). The modern complex is well maintained but someone had a job lot of turquiose plant which they had use to freshen the decor, but it rather jarred with the rest of the modern but elegant decor. The pool area was clean and other facilities well looked after. The sunbeds are superbly comfortable and generally available when required despite it being UK school half term week. Once in, the pool temperature was cool but bearable -the heating only kicks in mid Novemeber. The main flaw is that its a constaint depth in the main pool which meant our newly swimming 5 year old could not touch the bottom at any point. Paddling pool fine upto 4 years and main pools probably OK for 8 years old onward. At night, the entertainment program was low key but the Puerto was within a longish walking range. But once the day tripper had gone, the whole resort felt a bit abandoned. There are plenty of choice of resturants but we didn't find anything outstanding that I'd want to recommend. Would I go again?. Probably look first at Tenerife (Costa Adeje) or Lanzarote (Playa Blanca or Puerto Calero) for a quiet but tasteful week but if this was the only option, I wouldn't say no!

This was our second visit this year and we have had excellent stays on both occasions. In February I stayed with my father, sister and three children and stayed on a self catering holiday, we had such a good time both enjoying the hotel and loving the resort of Mogan that I have just revisited with my Husand and son. This time we decided to stay on a half board basis and were very impressed by the standard of the food provided. Buffet stylel, but also cooked to order at the grill. Everyone catered for, excellent sea food! We will definately be returning for a thirf time and I would recommend this hotel and resort for all those wanting a different view of the Canaries and a very laid back holiday.

Allein schon der Empfang ist traumhaft: die Herren Cesari und Marcello haben stets ein Lächeln und eine Lösung parat. Die Terasse war riesig mit schönem Blick sowohl am Tag, am Abend und Nachts zum Sterne gucken. Man kann kann auf die Liegen im Freien schlafen, wenn man will. Wir sind ungerne wieder weggegangen und ehrlich, so nett das kleine Örtchen Puerte de Mogan auch ist, man könnte auch getrost den ganzen Urlaub im Hotel verbringen, so schön ist es dort. Direkt davor liegt ein Riesen Supermarkt mit allem was das Herz begehrt, die Küche ist gut ausgestattet mit Toaster und Warmwasserkocher, es gibt deutsche Fernsehprogramme und Wireless in der Empfangshalle, in der Snackbar auf auf manchen Stufen der Anlage - je nach Wind. Das einzige was merkwürdig war: der Geruch . Ab und zu eine Welle Kloakenduft , ebenfalls je nach Windrichtung, zwischen 1 Stunde und mehrere Stunden . Man munkelt , es sei die Kläranlage der Stadt, aber vielleicht ist es der Fluss der an gewissen Stellen Trocken liegt , bez. vorläufig mit Stilles Wasser gefüllt ist ? Hotel allerdings 1 A. Nichts für Partygänger, keine Diskos, kein Nachtleben. Allerdings auch keine Kultur, kein Museum, keine Kirchen etc... zu besichtigen. Wer Ruhe braucht und dennoch ein paar Schiffchen und ein paar Restaurants dazu haben will , wird begeistert sein.

Het was boven verwachting, met champagne en een prachtig appartement. Ons appartement lag erg gunstig, 3e verdieping in het midden van het complex. Hierdoor mooi uitzicht en geen mensen boven ons. Ook dicht bij het zwembad. Alles is schoon, netjes en mooi. Onze kamer werd goed schoongemaakt steeds en de medewerkers zijn vriendelijk en spreken goed engels. De locatie van het complex is relatief ver van het strandje. Maar door de boulevard erg leuk om heen te wandelen. Voor ons prima, wij hadden ook een auto de hele week wat echt relaxed is. Supermarkt tegenover het complex. Ik vind dit appartement een aanrader!

Myself and husband stayed in these apartments for a week on 11th September. The apartments themselves are simply the best we have ever had - plenty of space, very clean and nicely appointed. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and I can honestly say that the food we sampled was excellent - all tastes were catered for and the buffet was replenished regularly by the very attentive staff. The omelettes 'made to order' were particularly good! We had asked for a high room, thinking that we wouldn't like to be overlooked, but from what we saw, none of the apartments were on top of each other and all had their privacy - I think next time, we would ask for a lower floor to cut down on the lift travelling! Ah - the lifts! The system is quite confusing at first ( especially if ,like us, you had to take 4 lifts up and walk a long corridor to your room!) but after a day or so, it starts to make sense. I do think the signs could be clearer, but it's a minor gripe. The staff are wonderful - all very friendly and helpful - they help make your stay very pleasant. The animation person at the poolside seemed very popular with all of the kids and stopped to chat with everyone else as well. We tended to lounge around the pool most days (it was very hot!) and one annoying thing was the lack of a pool bar - it opened on the Sunday (our first full day) for about 2 hours, but then didn't open again all week? Not sure of the reason for this, but it meant relying on the very expensive water from the vending machines (1 euro - only 23 cents in the supermarket!) or making the effort to walk to the nearest bar - there is a snack bar on the 1st floor, but again - this wasn't open until 1.30pm. All in all, we had a lovely relaxing week and would recommend these apartments wholeheartedly - they're very peaceful and comfortable.

All reception staff speak very good english.They were very helpfull to us,in particular Marcello and an english lady, Joan.We stayed half board and it was a good decision.Good variety at breakfast and dinner and generally very tasty.Staff worked with a smile, were very efficient, friendly, and we were made to feel very welcome. Left my watch behind once. It was returned on our next visit. Honesty. Bedroom, kitchen, living area and bathroom spacious and very clean. Must mention the beautiful Brazilian lady with the big smile.Sorry I kept calling you Maria.She looked after the apartment as if it were her own.Best till last.The balcony has to be seen to be believed.It contained 2 loungers,a table and 4 chairs, small table, shower and still lots of space.Yes a shower on the balcony.Also 3 lovely pools in a very cosy complex.Going back for 2 weeks end of september to chill out again.

as previous reviews state, big spacious appartment with huge balcony,just what we needed for a week re.laxing. very clean well kept complex,loved the fantastic choice at breakfast we only needed lunch twice there was so much choice and very good quality. had dinner on our departure night wish we had done before as it was lovely and very reasonably priced. only gripe was the amount of children around the infinity pool,could this not be adult only as the complex has 2 other pools? i was not the only person who thought this whilst we were there,4 other couples trying to read and relax around it thought the same.

Ich hatte mich vorher durch alle gefundene Beurteilungen ein Bild gemacht was uns erwartet. Wir wurden sehr angehnehm überrascht. Alles war, wie wir uns es vorgestellt haben und noch einiges schöner. Ein User von TripAdvisor empfahl mir Zimmer Nr. 941,942 oder 943. Ich habe diese Zimmerauswahl per email vorab versucht zu reservieren und prompt bekam ich Nr. 942 mit herrlichem Blick über Mogan und ein Stück Meer. Es war herrlich ruhig und auf der riesigen Terrasse konnte man sich wunderbar entspannen. Wir hatten Halbpension und waren sehr zufrieden. Es gab alles was man sich vorstellen kann und ich weiss wirklich nicht, was es hier auszusetzen gibt. Die Entfernung zum Strand ist ca. 30 Minuten und der Bummel durch das kleine Dorf ist sehr empfehlenswert. Es ist nichts für Partygänger! Wir kommen bestimmt wieder.

We stayed here for 2 weeks and had the pleasure of staying in one of the 2 bedroom apartments. Wow - The apartment itself is very bid with 2 bathrooms, but it is the terrace that really makes the room. For a 2 bedroom apartment, the terrace is the width of 3 rooms, so roughly 30ft wide and its about 12ft in depth. We ate breakfast and lunch out there most days and as we had a 3 month baby, it was great to have a big outside area that meant you did not have to keep coming back up from the pool all time! Rather than repeat what others have said already, I'll just focus on anything not mentioned. We took a portable dvd player with us for our 2yr old, the tv's in the room have the 3 plug (red, white, yellow) connector on the side so we could use it to keep her amused when she was too tired from playing in the sun. We were in block A towards the back, the swimming pool on this side was very quiet compared to the other ground floor swimming pool which had the kids paddling pool and most days there were less than 10 or so people using the pool. There are two laundry rooms, its 4 euros to use the washing machine and they only take 1 euro coins. While we were there, a lot of the rooms in our area were closed as they were adding blinds to the terraces. The blinds are great as they come out horizontally from the room to give you some shade on the terrace, but then you can also extend them downwards to stop sun coming into the rooms or just to keep part of the terrace in shade as the sun goes down in the afternoon. We must have eaten in around 7 or 8 different restaurants, either in the row behind the beach or facing into the harbour. Some were better than others but all the meals were fine at worst and a couple of the restaurants were superb. All of them were child friendly and in some of them I reckon my wife would say that the staff were more helpful with the kids than i was!! The ladies running Il Bagatto (behind beach) were so good with the kids and the food here was very nice. Food at Cafe de Mogan (harbour) was excellent although you pay a little more here. We also went it a German restaurant (C.Mediterranean i think?) that was nearly at the end of the line of restaurants in the harbour and the food was excellent here as well, home made burgers, fresh fish, home made puddings - every course we had here was lovely! We will definately consider coming back to Mogan Valle next year!

My wife and I stayed in a one bedroom apartment with our two boys 14 and 5. The rooms were great, plenty of space in the living area, even with the sofa bed open. The sun terrace was very spacious and the outside shower was a welcome touch. Inside was well appointed and the ceiling fans kept the rooms at an even temperature. The location was ideal, close to the beach and next to the supermarket. The pools were very good and clean with ample sun loungers and parasols. The staff were helpful and spoke very good English. I would recommend this complex to anyone.

We booked this on the recommendation of my mother who had stayed at the Cordial Hotel & said we would love Mogan. The choice was 7 days in the hotel or 10 days for the same price in the apartments.... and when we saw the reviews on here about the large terraces, the apartments (already ahead) won! To give context, we are 40 + 47 and holiday 2-3 times a year. Paramount for us is location, with lots of restaurants. So, here goes: Apartments: § Great size, well furnished (comfy beds) and with those amazing terraces, which really are fantastic for private sunbathing. We didn't cook, but there's a kettle, toaster, coffee maker, 2-ring and fridge. In the bathroom, the showers are pretty powerful and even the hairdryer had some energy to it! § One to note: the apartments are not cleaned on Sunday or Thursday, and the towels are not refreshed on those days either. We insisted on new towels on the first occasion as we hadn’t known this and had put them in the bath to indicate they needed cleaning – Reception sounded a bit narked when I rang and explained, but new towels were there within half an hour. Complex/Pools/Staff § Yes it's an odd layout, but it makes sense after a day. One good aspect of the layout is that it's very secure, there's no way in except through reception, which has CCTV and alert staff. § We only used the pools twice as we struggled to get a bed (at 10am) on the first 2 days, though I think that's because we were there during the Spanish holidays. After the first weekend it quitened considerably, but by then we were enjoying sunbathing on the terrace, being able to pop inside for drinks etc. Food: § We were half board (you can swap dinner for lunch so you can eat out at night, which is great) and I personally really liked the food… and I normally loathe buffets. Hot and cold choices, and you could have meat cooked to order. Mogan: § This is the reason we booked here, and I have to say we were more than thrilled. Similar to other marina-based places like Villamoura (but classier), over 10 days we had fantastic meal after fantastic meal. A shared starter, 2 mains + wine + brandy was £80-£100 which we thought reasonable given the great quality. I would particularly recommend: Café De Morgan – ignore the misleading name, this is the poshest (and best) restaurant on the marina. Superb food and service Costa Bella – also excellent, look out for the signature Sole dish. Mogan itself is upmarket, quiet and safe. It's a 15 minute flat (and pedestrianised) stroll down to the marina from the apartments. Once there, there are no karaoke bars, sports bars or ‘fish & chip’ type places… and long may they continue to resist it. You will love this place if you like to dress up and eat well, or just if you like a quiet stroll on an evening.

El Cordial Mogán Valle ha sido todo un descubrimiento positivo para nosotros. Nuestras hijas, de 10 y 5 años, lo pasaron fenomenal. Esideal para las vacaciones con la familia. Las instalaciones están en un estado perfecto y las piscinas son estupendas. Las habitaciones son muy amplias con una terraza inmensa para tomar el sol o el té de media tarde. El buffet es muy completo, y tiene cocina a la plancha permanente en todas las comidas. Pero sobre todo destaco el servicio. Para mí es el valor añadido de este complejo. Desde el personal de recepción, hasta los camareros del buffet, el servicio es muy atento y nos hicieron sentir estupendamente. Y todo esto contando con el buen tiempo que suele hacer en Mogán. Pues nada, que lo hemos pasado tan bien que volvemos en Agosto.

These apartments are the highest quality we have stayed in. The decor, furniture, kitchen equipment and general finish are excellent. Reception staff and the maids are very good. The pools are very clean and well maintained. The maids came most days and beds were changed three times in a week. The buffet was very good and very good value for money too. These apartments need air conditioning; we paid for the air conditioning unit, otherwise we would not have slept, They would be 4 star, if not for this omission. The beds were excellent, good quality mattresses even on the sofa bed. Because of tiered appts ,there was no noise from those above or below, and no noise from organised entertainment either. This is a quiet, upmarket family complex and resort. There are no noisy pubs or nightclubs-nice bars and good variety of restaurants-excellent food at reasonable prices. Excellent supermarket opposite appartments.

Loved these apartments, very clean large rooms with large balconies - just be warned the guys up stairs have good view of you sunbathing... I would suggest you ask for accommodation on an upper floor because on the ground level the terrace is a little small and enclosed by bushes. The lovely quiet town is only a few min walk away with an abundance of restaurants, one better that the rest, would recommend the little tapas place beside the band stand in the square. Opposite the apartments is an disused road that I recommend you explore it. It will take to the top of a hill with fabulous views of the town and harbour.

My family & I stayed here for 9 days and we had a brilliant holiday. We arrived early morning & it was very quiet. Reception booked us in & gave us a map to our room - the hotel is so big it may have been a good idea to escort us to our room really, as it took us a good 20 mins to find it after going up and down the wrong corridirs but this would be my only critisim on this. Once we finally located out room all i can say is WOW!. We booked a two bed apartment & we were not disappointed. It was spotlessly clean, spacious & as an added & unexpected bonus it had two large bathrooms - on main one & one as an ensuite to the main bedroom. Both bedrooms are roomy & have plenty of wardrobe space. The kitchen facilities are ample with every you need provided & its all spotlessly clean. The Balcony was a major wow factor........it was massive!!.....4 sun loungers + small tables + a table for 6 people...Awnings overhead with extra shades that you can roll down to block out the sun if it gets too much for you ..it was almost perfect.....the one thing it was lacking is Air -Conditioning........the ceiling fans only serve to move the hot air about the room which can make it uncomfortable in the heat but this would be the only thing that i could fault. The Pools are lovely especially the infinity pool on floor 3, plenty of sunbeds but you still get the age old problem of people leaving there towels on the beds all day but not coming back for hours but this is a problem wherever you go isn't it! Childrens play area is bascially a slide so if you have little ones then don't pin your hopes on this as there is nothing major provided. The resort is lovely, clean, peacful with no touts pulling you into shops, bars or restuarants, no timeshare & best of all , no lager louts or people getting drunk & rowdy,,,,this is a quality resort without being snobby.....you definetely get the best of both worlds. The beach & harbour are beatiful & surrounded by plenty of bars & restaurants to choose from - it cost about 25 per head for a meal out though so don't expect a cheap holiday whan it comes to eating out .....a small coke would cost 3 euros!! beer is 6 euros ....malibu & coke 6.5-8 euros ( when the rate was 1.15euro to the pound) ....a steak or fish main meal 13-16 euros so take plenty of money... Gone are the days fo cheap meals out abroad. All inall this was a perfect holiday destination and i would highly recommend it to anyone -you will not be disappointed.

Ich habe mich entschieden über das Hotel zu schreiben nachdem ich einigen schlechten Bewertungen gelesen habe. Wir gehen meine Freundin und ich jeden Winter für 3-4 Wochen nach Gran Canaria und wechseln oft die Hotels innerhalb eines Urlaubes, auch auf anderen Inseln. Unter allen 4 Sternen Apartment Hotels auf Gran Canaria ist dieses das Beste Hotel. Und wenn der Preis stimmt dann umso besser. Die Sternen zu zählen ist quatsch. Das Hotel ist neu und sauber, was alles andere als Selbstverständlich ist, selbst in einem 5-Sternen Hotel auf der Insel. Die Wohnung sind über 40m2 groß und das Schlafzimmer ist immer getrennt. Oft haben die ein große Terrasse mit eigener Außendusche, Tisch mit 2 Stühle + 2 Liegestühle. 2 Starken Ventilatoren ersetzen die Klimaanlage, vielleicht das einzige was nach 3 Sternen aussieht. Das Bad ist sauber und modern. die Küche ausgestattet und den modernen Ansprüche gerecht. Die Matratzen sind prima im Vergleich zu den vielen schmalen Matratzen auf der Insel, wo jeder Dämpfer zu spüren ist. Es sind 3 Pools in der Anlage, 2 großen, eins davon mit einem Becken für Kleinkinder und eins unbeheizt. Mein Gott, wenn das einem nicht reicht... Nebenbei sind auch kostenlosen Parkplätze vorhanden, was für uns eine große Rolle spielte. Das Essen im Restaurant soll schlecht sein. Keins der Hotels auf der Insel bietet für das selbe Geld gutes Essen. Mogan hat etwa 100 Restaurants aller Kategorien. Zu viele Kinder/Lärm? Ja, das Hotel ist kinderfreundlich, und das hat für mich sogar eine entsprechende Qualität. Partygäste Fehlanzeige. Keine Russen, wenige Engländer. Die Zimmer sind hellhörig, klar, aber in Spanien ist es so... Viele Kritiker sollten nebenan ins Playa ziehen, das beste Hotel der Insel, wo ein richtig gutes und teures Restaurant auf sie wartet. Pures Luxus mit echten 5 Sternen Flair Klima und Poollandschaft. Keine Kinder, keine Animation, kein Lärm, eine leere Bar. Das Playa Hotel kostet etwa doppelt so viel Pro Nacht und die Zimmer sind deutlich kleiner und oft nur mit einem kleinen Balkon ausgestattet. Ob das diese Kritiker bezahlen wollen?

el hotel precio-calidad formidable,el personal muy educado y atento.El primer dia no teniamos la mesa de la cena preparada y nos invitaron al bar terraza a tomar lo que quisieramos.el unico problema es la distancia a la playa 10 minutos andando,pero ya lo sabiamos antes de reservar.El ultimo dia saliamos por la tarde y el jefe de recepcion Marcos nos puso a nuestra disposicion una habitacion de cortesia para todo el dia,esto en un hotel de 4 o 5 estrellas te cobran por ello.mis vacaciones fueron del 13 al 20 de julio,el hotel no tiene aire acondicionado pero salvo el primer dia por el cambio de clima no hace falta la noche es muy fresca.El buffet no es repetitivo y la comia es de buena calidad y abundante.

My wife and I spent two weeks here in June 2010. We will definitely return in October or November. It's not a place for rowdy boozers but if you like reasonable peace and beauty spend your holiday here. I'm sure you will like it. We had a one bedroom apartment on the ground floor. It was roomy with a controlable ceiling fan in the living area and another in the bedroom.. The amenities were adequate. A microwave with variable settings, a two ring electric stove. coffee maker, toaster and a reasonable sized fridge. The cups, saucers, plates, glasses etc. were very clean and servicable. The patio had a glass top table and four chairs. If they were not already there you can bring sunbeds onto your patio. Talking of sunbeds, I've never been to a place where it was so easy to get a sunbed. No getting up at the crack of dawn to join thhe kamakazi rush for a bed. The ground floor adult and seperate children's swimming pool are set in a beautiful tree, plant and flower filled garden area. There are two other swimming pools in the complex. All the staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. For the sporty there are tennis courts and a gym and there are the usual adult and childrens events. There is a good sized and reasonably priced supermarket just outside the hotel. There are two market days a week A few minutes walk brings you to Puerto Mogan itself. To the left is the good, safe sandy beach where there are plenty of restaurants. To the right is the town of Puerto Mogan. Please visit here. It is beautiful It surrounds a port and marina and is full of little streets which are lined with masses of colourful flowers. There are even little canals running between and under some of the houses. There are lots of restaurants to suit most tastes. If you wish to go further it is only 1 euro 40 to go on the local bus to the busy resort of Puerto Rico. The local buses put Maspalomas, Playe del Ingles and even Las Palmas within easy reach. I could go on.......... If you like a holiday in a good class hotel in a beautiful resort go to Cordial Mogan Valle. Have I any regrets ? Yes ! I had to come home.

My wife and I went to Mogan Cordial valle appartments in Puerto Mogan (mid June). Although we visited the resort once before on a day trip, this was our first time staying there. We chose the appartments instead of the sister hotel next door as we didnt want to eat in the hotel every night (hotel is full or half board only - no self catering), we much prefer to explore the restaurants. We were delighted with these appartments and would not hesitate to recommend them. They are very spacious with a living area, dining area, large bedroom and great bathroom. Our appt was spotlessly clean when we arrived and the decor is beautiful. We were on the 9th teir and the balcony was huge with table, four chairs two sunbeds and a shower. The view from the balcony was beautiful and the sun was on the balcony from 10.30am to 8.15 pm. The one negative thing about the appts was that; despite the brochure's claim that rooms would be serviced 5 times a week - we were there 7 days and our room was serviced twice. We phoned reception and pointed this out and housekeeping was there within ten minutes (still, pity we had to phone them) Staff at reception were very friendly and helpful as were all staff we came across. There are three pools - two large landscaped on ground level and one smaller quieter on level 3. All pools were clean and spacious. To be fair, if you are staying on the top teirs the lifts are a bit of a hassle but you soon get used to them and it is straightforward. The pool areas and in fact the entire complex is spotlessly clean and exceptionally well manicured. A 10 minute stroll takes you to the beach, the village centre and the beautiful harbour/marina area. This charming tasteful resort is in complete contrast to the shabby concrete eyesore that the nearby resort of Puerto Rico has become. The village is beautiful with flowers everywhere, quaint streets and little arched bridges over streams - it earns the name 'little venice'. It is perfect to stroll around and stop for coffee or a snack during the day in one of the little restaurants or coffee bars overlooking the marina, harbour or beach. It has a nice selection of little botiques and shops but thankfully none of the horrible camera/junk shops which are all over the more comercial resorts in the canaries. Unfortunately there is a halfday market on Fridays (full of the usual overpriced junk) when the resort is invaded by hundreds of visitors from the rest of the island - trust me Friday is the perfect day to stay by your pool or head off somewhere else! The beach is small but clean and plenty of available sunbeds or you prefer the towel on the sand option, two thirds of the beach are sunbed free and quieter. In the evenings there are plenty of good restaurants to try in the village. The restaurants at the marina are slightly more expensive than those in the village and at the beach but as we were just the two of us with no kids this time we kept returning there as the view made it worth the couple of extra euros. If going with young children the restaurants at the beach are ideal and still good quality. We didnt eat in the restaurant at the appartments but a couple we met did eat there one night and said it 'just ok'. It is definitely worth the 10 minute stroll to the harbour to eat in the evenings (but then I never could really understand the point of 'all inclusive' unless you have young children) To sum up, if you want a totally relaxing holiday in a very peaceful stylish resort and appartments then I would highly recommend these appartments and Puerto Mogan. If you want nightlife, entertainment and excitement then Puerto Mogan is not for you.

I booked this hotel as I wanted just a nice quiet relaxing holiday with my partner and this certainly came true. Cordial Mogan Valle hotel is a fantastic hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful. The apartments are of excellent standard in my eyes with all the amenities you will need, lovely furnishings and as you have probably read on other reviews the balconies are huge! We were able to have the choice to sunbathe in private, take a nice cold outside shower if it got a little too hot or alternatively take advantage of the several pools on the complex. I came to this hotel based on the reviews I have read on trip advisor and having read many of these detailed reviews it appears that most mention the number of lifts and confusion finding their apartments on arrival. Personally I didn't think it was a problem at all. Reception will provide you with a map and details on how to get to your apartment. It's just a matter of listening to what they say and follow your map. There are 9 floors in total. We were on the 8th floor so that says it all. Once you've sussed the place out you soon start to find your way around. We went self catering and found it worked out well for us. I cannot comment on the hotel food as we didn't use the restaurant. We either ate out or went to Hiperdinos supermarket which is a stone throw away. Everything you need you will find and I found them to be very reasonable. Lots of locals come here too for their weekly shopping. One thing I will mention is sometimes there isn't enough people on the tills and it can get a little busy...all depends what time you go. Eating out is a must! There are many small restaurants in or around the port which is only 10 mins walks from the hotel (a very pleasant walk!). We went to saffron for a tapas, beautiful light meal and not bad prices considering it's just overlooking the beach. We also had a breakfast one morning at the irish bar right opposite the port. We paid 5 euros each and it was lovely!!! There's lots more places to eat, it's just a matter of looking around and check out the prices and of course to see if there are any other people eating there. On Fridays in Puerto Mogan is Market day...this is a must! Very unique and the most stress free market I've ever been to. All based in and around the port and it gives you a chance you use any haggling skills you may have! We managed to get all gifts from here. There are many excursions available on the island. We tried the the dolphin search and were not disappointed! We must have seen over 60 dolphins swimming / jumping together in the sea and were also lucky enough to spot a flying fish. A definite must for anyone who hasn't experience this before! We booked this excursion through Thomson, however if you go to the port you can also book the trip from here. Overall we had the most enjoyable relaxing holiday and would recommend it to anyone who wants a bit of peace and quiet away from it all :-)

We just returned 2 weeks ago from our 1st time in Puerto De Mogan and found the Cordial Mogan Valle apartments fantastic. Here is what we thought Apartments themselves: Very spacious. We have a young child and got a 2 bed apartment which we found more than spacious, in fact we could have managed with a 1 bed! Kitchens are equiped to a good enough standard to manage, there's a hob, microwave and fridge but no oven or dishwasher but you wouldn't expect that in holiday apartments anyway, just private ones. There are laundry facilities in the place so that's not a problem. No airconditioning, but fans so wouldn't recommend staying in the height of summer as we found it even warm in May. Balcony is absolutely huge, nearly the size of apartment, great for kids as enough room for a bit of freedom Food: We stayed self catering and glad we did, we did try the buffet and have to say we would have been bored if it was every night but you can't have an opinion til you try! But that's just us we love variety when it comes to food. There are plenty of brilliant restaurants in Peurto de Mogan, we found a few on the beach front, and some on the way to the harbour and then some on the harbour. We also stayed in one night and cooked ourselves going across the road to the a snack bar just under the supermarket called El Encuentro, who do takeaway pizza, chicken etc for a great price. Very handy when you have youngsters. BTW his chicken is the best i tasted while on holiday, I went back a few times! Also the supermarket is literally 2 minutes across from the complex and has everything so that is very handy. Location: The apartments are very well located, a good 15 minute walk from the beach but it's all flat so no problem. The apartments cascade up on a hill so depending on what room you get you might have a walk, we did but once you got used to it you became very organised once you left the apartment so you didn't have to go back. Service: Front desk staff are excellent, if you have any question just ask them, they know it all and don't try to sell you anything. We had a 2 year old and wanted to know what to do, they recommended taking the boat to Puerto rico return, and also going to Palmitos park which I would hightly recommend to people with children, it's a bit of a trek but believe me it's worth it, it's practically a zoo but without the African animals, has everything else though, monkeys, meerkats, gorillas, birds, dolphins, etc. Nightlife: Bar in the complex but in May it was very quiet, I think alot of families with children and not many drinkers! Puerto de Mogan is more based around restaurants, only one little street you will see on your way down to the beach with about 4 or 5 bars. We had our inlaws so got a night out and tried it out, they have bellydancing in one on a wednesday and saturday and everyone sits around staring at them! Very funny as you'd swear they women were naked the way the men had their jaws on the floor! But was entertaining] Overall a very enjoyable holiday and would recommend to anyone

Having just returned from Mogan Valle I'm not sure who is more disappointed that we had to come home, me or my children. We took our boys, 7 and 4, and from the moment we arrived it was bliss. We were offered champagne/orange juice at reception on arrival. All the staff spoke perfect English and made a fuss of the boys and couldn't be more welcoming and friendly. The room was "wow" in the apartment stakes - sofa beds were of excellent quality, not the usual sofa that you just sleep on. Breakfast / Dinner buffets left us all stuffed and not once did any of us utter the words "I'm Hungry!". The area was very quiet with some nice bars and restaurants on the sea front - the beach too was lovely with no worries about the boys getting out of their depth as the shore gently shelved into the sea. If you travel with kids just beware the area around the pool is treacherously slippy. A lovely place to go if you want a quiet, relaxing holiday.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment with huge terrace which we spent most of our time on relaxing. The supermarket is just over the road and is well stocked and all the amenities in the room meant that we could spend time just chilling out. Mid April is a strange time to spend in Puerto Mogan, one moment it is warm and sunny the next it was blowing a gale and quite cool! We travelled on a bed and breakfast basis and spent the evenings at the beach area and around the harbour. The dining was very pricey but very enjoyable and good quality. Our favourite was La Bodeguilla, excellent food and the service was good, but there are plenty of others including El capachino and Thats Amore in partucular. I read other reviews that mention difficulty in finding the room, but ours was fairly straightforward, but I can see how others may have struggled. We were there during the 'ash cloud' and Thomson transferred us to Playa Del Ingles for the four nights before we left for home and believe me if you need reminding how relaxing and beautiful Puerto mogan is, just spend a couple of nights in a place thats awful!!! I would certainly return to the Cordial Valle - Beautiful and relaxing!

We stayed for 10 days in a 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom apartment. The aprtment was very spacious- 2 good sized bedrooms, and 2 large bathrooms, with plenty of storage space. The balcony was also spacious, with room for a table and 4 chairs, as well as 2 loungers. The apartment was kept very clean, as was the complex on the whole. Nice well maintained tennis courts, although they were expensive. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We ordered a parasol for the balcony (none of them have them as standard, but can be hired) and it was there within 15 minutes. The pool areas were kept very clean, and had plenty of good qualtiy loungers available. Entertainment programme was impressive - very nice organiser, with some activities for kids, some for adults; no need to book, and not at all pushy for those more reluctant to join in! We also booked a transfer with the drivers recomended on the website, who was faultless. At the airport with a board displaying our name; it was safe, relaxing and unhurried drive in a comfortable car - no debate over whether to book a taxi or private transfer for return journey. All in all, an excllent holiday. Lovely resort and we definately will return.

We returned from this accommodation yesterday having spent a week as two adults with two young children (5 and 3 years) in a one bedroomed apartment on a half board basis. Having read previous reviews, on arrival we expected to have difficulty in finding our accommodation. We did not! The lady on reception was extremely welcoming and helpful, gving clear directions, instructions and a diagram. Perhaps we were lucky, but we had no difficulty in locating the apartment at all. Having found it we were then very impressed that they had even made up the sofa bed in readiness for the 4 of us (something in our experience that most places do not do). The rooms are nicely decorated, sufficiently spacious, with a large bathroom, and HUGE balcony. The balncony has a shower, two sunbeds, safe height railings for young ones, table and four chairs, and a handy small pull out clothes rail. We were overlooking the north (quieter) pool which I would say has the best views of all - ie up the valley to the mountains. The apartment was clean, well serviced and equipped with everything we needed. All the staff are really, really helpful, and when requesting anything, they are very quick to respond. (We had a faulty sunbed which we reported and it was replaced immediately). Although not something we would normally do, we booked half board as we thought this would be easier with young children. We were very pleasantly surprised by the selection and standard available at both breakfast and dinner. Two sittings are available in the evening which is great if you want your chidren to eat a bit earlier - the first sitting commences at 6.30pm. There is a children's mini disco at 8pm 6 nights a week and adult entertainment usually from about 9.30pm - again great if you don't want to venture far - but beware drinks are very, very expensive at this resort. The supermarket across the road is extensive and reasonably priced so you can always by your prefered drink from there and have one on the balcony! There is also some daytime activities at the south pool bar for children. Older children will enjoy the table tennis and pool etc. by the snack bar. It is a pleasant 10 minute stroll to the beach/port for adults. We didn't spend much time there, but what we did experience was wonderful. There are some lovely shops, and whilst we didn't spend long there I didn't see an array of cheap tatt at all. The atmosphere both in the acoommodation and in the resort/area was wonderfully relaxed. I would have hated this area in my 20's but it is perfect for families and couples - and we can honestly say we didn't see a single lager lout or dodgy looking individual the whole week we were there! We would love to return and would recommend it highly.

Jag var förfärad när bussen åkte igenom playa de engles och puerto rico, och tänkte att mitt första besök på ön kommer att bli en flopp. Men så kom vi till den lilla oasen Puerto de Mogan , visst är det turistigt men på ett helt annat sätt, en del av den lokala befolkningen är påtaglig. Dom sköna gubbarna på torget som sitter och högljutt spelar spel och dom små bus ungarna som leker emellan. hotellet var lyxigt och rent och hade allt en små barns familj kan önska. Efter morgon badet i barn poolen sov dotten middag och jag och sambon satt på altanen och solade och duschade i våran ute dusch. när det blev för varmt. promenaden på promenad stråket till stranden och byn tar ca 10 min. och den väl sorterade "ICAn" 2 min från hotellet. Ett perfekt tillhåll för pensionärer och småbarns familjer.

These apartments are great quite spacious for my husband & I. Very large balcony on which we had three sunloungers, table & four chairs and outdoor shower & still plenty of space. We were on the first floor and after reading previous reviews about finding your apartment, we found the receptionist showed us a map & drew on it how to get there (while we had a glass of cava), which we found very easily. Did see one person struggling to find his way to the 9th floor! The apartments are very well equipped with everything you expect in an apartment and more. The pool is very nice with plenty of sunbeds & umbrellas. We sat there in the morning, sun came up in march at the pool between 9.30 & 10. Great supermarket across the road from the apts for all your provisions for breakfast/lunch. By the afternoon sun on the balcony and you could sunbathe there till just after 6pm when the sun went down below the mountains across from apt. Look for the infinity pool - not very big but nice to sit at & quite quiet, you catch a bit of a breeze there as my husband found sitting on the balcony - it got very hot. Lots of restaurants down at the front, but the ones at the harbour are quiet pricey, our favourites were the El Capuchino which served lovely fresh fish & a lovey little italian place La Cucina up on a hill with a couple of tables outside, we had a 3 course meal with wine here for 30 euros, the pizzas are fab! We went on a friday and had planned to go back before leaving on monday morning but it is closed on a saturday and sunday. The Hola Hola bar was nice for a drink after your meal. Puerto De Mogan is a lovely place, for a quiet relaxing holiday, sunbathing or talking a stroll through the day around the quaint streets and the harbour area and then a meal and a few drinks at night. If your looking for a more lively holiday then Puerto Rico might be more your place. All in all we had a great time here and would hope to return sometime in the future.

Just back from a week in the sun 30 Jan to 6 Feb. We had a fabulous break - apartment is large, comfortable, well equipped and we had an enormous terrace which was very private where we sunbathed every day. Great supermarket across the road, the town is beautiful and a huge number of restaurants to choose from (I'm vegetarian). Try the Patio at the harbour for DIY tomato bread and fantastic canarian potatoes with mojo sauce! I will stay at the apartments again, the only issue is with a lack of information at the hotel. Nothing is easy to find, I've still no idea what the Spa offers and its a complicated layout.

All you need to relax & unwind after the bustle of normal life. A spacious, comfortable ,clean and well equipped appartment in a well maintained complex. The gardens are superb, the public areas clean and modern and all the staff we met were friendly,helpful and efficient. Situated as it is opposite a well stocked supermarket but only a pleasant stroll from the beach and the delightful harbour with its' selection of shops and restuarants there really was nothing to spoil a week of pure relaxation. The only question for this year is when to go - where we are going is not in doubt!

Just back from a one week stay over new year week. Apartments very well clean and maintained to a high standard. Rooms were cleaned 5 times week and towels changed 3 times a week. Communal areas were spotlessly clean and the outdoor heated pool was fantastic. (The children's pool and the infinity pool are not heated so in January are a little bracing) Staff were very friendly and accomodating and nothing was too much trouble. There is an excellent and well stocked supermarket outside the front door, distance to Puerton Mogan is a 15 minute stroll along a pedestrian area and is flat for pushchairs and wheelchair users. Excellent restaurants in the harbour include La Tortuga and Cafe de Mogan. I will certainly be looking to book again for next year.

We had stayed in the resort twice before, so obviously like it (relatively peaceful and relaxed). On our second visit we often walked past this new development of apartments as the builders applied the final touches, and figured they would be just right for us when finished - and got it right. The seafront is an easy stroll away, as is the harbour area with all its restaurants; but some days we stayed on our own terrace to soak up the sun or ventured to one of three pool areas for some relaxation. And some evenings we bought a bit of fish at the neighbouring supermarket and ate in - the kitchens are just about good enough for a simple meal. Living area and bedroom functional, ceiling fans effective at this time of year, bathroom spacious enough. Maid service 5 times a week is unusually good for self catering, reception staff most helpful (glass of bubbly at check-in, bottle of bubbly on birthday). It seems to attract a broad mix of nationalities, all of whom were polite. And it has attracted us back for another trip next April, booked already.

have just returned for a week selfcatering at the CMV. The weather was fantastic and the apartments were just perfect. We had a 2 bed apartment. It was huge. 2 bedrooms one had two single beds pushed together and plenty of wardrobe space. The other had the biggest bed ever and had an ensuite. There is also another full bathroom. The kitchen living room had a pull out sofa which consisted of two seperate single beds. Can't comment on food as we only had drinks one night in hotel bar. We cooked breakfast and lunch in the kitchen and ate out most evenings. The kitchen is just perfect. Had kettle, toaster, microwave, utensils and cuttlery. All were new and worked perfectly. Cleaning staff came nearly every day. Supermarket is straight across the road. Only gripe would be the swimming pools-they were freezing. Could do with some heating up. There are 3 pools in the complex with only one of these having a childrens pool. We were staying in the top left hand side of the complex and by the time we would get down to the childrens pool it would be completely full. So my 3 year old only spent one day there. The rest were spent at the pool nearest to our apartment. Aircon would also be a lovely addition to the apartments as the ceiling fans do little to cool down the rooms. All in all a fantastic holiday. Mogan is a beautiful little piece of heaven. Beach is small but lovely. Don't think i saw one drunk person there. Fantastic for those looking for a relaxing break.

Wonderful trip to Mogan. The place really is a gem and you feel like you are part of a secret club that knows and protects this resort from becoming over commercialised like all the other spots on the island. Hotel great , clean, service super and balcony magnificent. entertainment at nite is fairly rubbish but no harm really as keeps the noise levels down. the beach is wonderful, water crisp and clear and the surrounding area is a hive of little bars and cafes. the best place was the little 'sun terrace snack bar'' on the left hand side as you walk down from the mogan valle. it advertises bbq and wine for 12 euros and is well worth a trip. its run by a young guy who has had the place for the last year and is a great mix of superb food, nice ambience , singing by the locals and a chilled out vibe that makes you not want to go home. loved the whole experience and we all agree we will return asap.

I stayed at the Cordial Mogan Valle Apartments for a week in September 2009. I was really impressed with the standard of accommodation throughout, from reception, public areas and apartments, I couldn't fault a thing! Staff were also fantastic. It's quite a big complex but doesn't feel too busy or loud. I went for a relaxing holiday - wasn't disappointed. Three swimming pools to choose from so again, not too busy and sunbeds always available, even in the afternoon. Gym and spa both fantastic, good value for money! We only ate there once as we preferred to eat out. At the cafe on level 2/3, we had burger & chips each, 2 cokes for only 9 euro. Supermarket directly opposit so you can make good use of the kitchen facilities within your apartment. 5-10 minute walk to beach/harbour area with plenty fab restaurants. I would definitely recommend these apartments! If you don't like self-catering, you can also do Bed & Breakfast or Half Board.

We have just returned from a stay in Cordial Mogan Valle. Beautiful apartment with a fabulous large balcony. We had the no problem with lifts. Got the hang of them straight away. Good proximity to harbour and beach. Great choice of restaurants. Favourites were the Clipper Italian in corner of square. Caravagio - lovely eating experience. The Zoo lovely but a bit pricey. Denny's Irish bar. Very pleasant and easy walk to all these venues. Only one complaint 6 Euro for glass of wine in apartment bar and restaurant. Carmel & Derek ( Senior Citizens) Dublin

We are just back from a great week in Puerto de Mogan. The Cordial Mogan Valle was one of the best apartments we have ever stayed in. We had a one bedroom apartment which was very spacious and comfortable. Because of the good weather we hardly used the dining and lounge area - but it was there if we wanted it. The balcony was huge!! had a small table with 4 chairs (bigger apartments had more chairs) plus two comfortable sun loungers. We were on the 9th floor but that is not as horrendous as it sounds. We only took the lift out of the reception area(which is large and modern and air-conditioned) up 3 floors and walked up the rest of the short flights of steps to our floor. We like the top floor accommodation as we soon realised that no-one could overlook us but we did overlook the floor below. The pool we used was on the 3rd floor so was convenient for our apartment. It was a normal rectangular pool with no kiddie facilities - but as we have none that was OK. When we were there it was quite quiet and when a group of children arrived later in the week we suddenly realised we had been spoiled by the lack of shrieks etc. There are 3 pools so there are always other options. The pool in the northern area of the complex is free form and has a small children's pool and play area - we did not use this at all despite the fact that it had a bar near it so cannot comment on the snack or drink prices. We had been told that the other pool was not available but there was certainly a third pool when we were there - in the southern end of the complex. Everything around the 3rd floor pool was clean and pleasant and the loungers were comfortable. The non slip surface around the pool was good if a little bit prickly on my bare feet and there were two showers available at this pool. We only used the bar/salon area once, on our last evening as we were hanging around waiting for our late departure. It is a comfortable area but a gin and tonic did cost 6euros and a beer 3euros. So I am glad that we had our own duty free G&T. The actual town is very pretty once you get down to the beach/harbour area. The beach has plenty of space with loungers and parasols if you want them. We only used them once and it cost us 9euros for two loungers and one parasol. The streets around the harbour are pretty and the restaurants around the marina are good - we tried a different one every night and were always pleased. I am a vegan so sometimes finding a place which can cater for my difficult requests can be quite a challenge but this did not prove to be the case in Puerto Mogan. There was a jazz festival on when we were there so it was nice to sit around at the end of the evening and relax and listen to the band who were playing in the band stand in the square. It seems to be something sponsored by the Irish Marina Bar and is Trad Jazz so is easy listening. From a notice board I saw that they have this event a few times a year. Eating out every night is a bit of an extravagance and did prove more costly for us this year but there are only two of us and it was a holiday. You could easily eat in the apartment as eating out on the balcony would have been very pleasant. There were two rings, a microwave, a kettle and a toaster in the very modern kitchen area. There is a modern shopping complex across the road from the apartments which is handy for the Dino Hypermarket. Unfortunately the credit crunch seems to have affected the take up of the units and only very few of them are open. We did eat in the Taj Indian Restaurant one night and it was good and the cheapest meal we had all week, 50 euros for both of us, including a good wine. As you can see we both loved Puerto Mogan and the Cordial Valle apartments are recommended, I just wish there had been more shade on the walk down to the harbour area it was hot as you would expect, perhaps when the shrubs and trees have grown a bit more there will be more shade available. I just hope they do not over-develop this resort once the "crunch" subsides as it is just perfect at the moments (apart from the half started building sites).

Did not know what to expect when we booked this holiday but we were not disappointed. Have visited Puerto Mogan before but never stayed for a holiday so did not know if it would be too quiet a place. Read similar reviews of the appartments and found that the general complaint was that it was difficult to find your room initially but we had no problem whatsoever even though it was late at night when we arrived after a flight delay. Staff very helpful , appartments a really good size, pool areas very pleasant. We stayed bed and breakfast for our stay and dining was good. Cant wait to go back again and would definitely recommend for a quiet relaxing holiday.

These apartments are very well appointed, with lots of maintenance going on to keep them fresh. The three pools are good with plenty of sun loungers, the infinity pool having reopened at the end of our stay. The 2 bed apartment was very comfortable ,and being near the top of the block we had a massive balcony, big enough for 4 sun loungers a table, outdoor shower etc. You can hire air conditioning at about 120 euros for two weeks, well worth even with a bit of breeze being up the hill. The number of lifts can be confusing due to the gradient of the hill with the apartments layout being up the hillside, they are vital though as two of our party had foot injuries at some time during the break (no fault of the resort). The staff were friendly and helpful too. Puerto Mogan is a very nice resort, especially by the harbour with a good choice of quality restaurants and no English pub type places. The Friday market is worth a visit for all manner of goods. The beach is clean and close to lots of bars etc. Opposite the apartments we can recommend the Indian restaurant

Me he sentido muy comodo en el complejo, pues las habitaciones son amplias y con una decoración exquisita y funcional. La limpieza en las piscinas es algo que dice si me puede bañar en ellas o me tengo que ir a la playa (en otros apartamentos que he estado parecen estanques) y me quede en las piscinas, no se veia suciedad alguna por ninguna parte. La terraza del apartamento, ESPECTACULAR, ENORME, en definitiva, para mi, un lujo de apartamento.

He visto en esta misma pagina una critica bastante negativa sobre este mismo complejoy yo creo que no nos hemos quedado en el mismo sitio porque nuestra estancia ha sido una maravilla en todos los sentidos, la unica "queja " nuestra fue la falta de aire acondicionado, pero el director nos lo soluciono al momento con uno portatil. El personal hace honor al nombre de la cadena CORDIAL. El personal del buffet estaban muy pendientes de que no nos faltara de nada, la comida fue sabrosa , abundante,y variada con muchos platos de verduras que nos encantaron. La animacion para mis niños fue muy buena pero hacia falta mas personal. En resumen , recomiendo este establecimiento a familias con niños. un 8.5.

Llegamos a los apartamentos el 9 de Julio, son exactamente igual que en las fotos que publica su web.IM-PRESIONANTES.Son sin duda los mejores en los que he estado.Y es la primera vez que voy a un hotel de 3 estrellas, siempre vamos a hoteles de 4. La terraza es espectacular, con 2 tumbonas, mesa con 4 sillas (todo de calidad y diseño),y una ducha que viene de cine para refrescarte mientras tomas el sol. El interior ,lo mismo , con muebles de calidad, y todo muy moderno ...precioso. La gente del hotel es muy servicial y amigable, en especial un chico gaditano del comedor, un 10 para él. Estuvimos con media pensión, todo correcto, aunque podria haber un poco mas de variedad.Se puede elegir comida o cena. De todas formas mucho mejor cenar que comer, ya que el bufet de la comida es super reducido (casi nadie se queda para comer, todo el mundo elige la cena). La zona de piscinas tambien muy bien, hay 3 en diferentes zonas y una para niños pequeños con cascaditas. La única pega que tienen los apartamentos es que no hay aire acodionado, yo creo que es lo único que le falta para tener 4 estrellas. La zona es, para mí , lo mejor de Gran Canarias. Puerto Mogán es precioso, nada de aglomeraciones, tranquilo pero con todos los servicios.Hay restaurantes en el puerto, un Hiper Dino al lado del hotel, la cala es super bonita, hay canales por las calles con puentes (la llaman la pequeña Venecia),... de verdad precioso. Hemos estado alojados también unos días en la playa del inglés, y ni color con Puerto Mogán, allí solo hemos encontrado guiris muy jóvenes que van a emborracharse y arman follón a la noche, playas masificadas y todo orientado a los alemanes. Puerto Mogán es mucho mas acogedor, perfecto para familias. En fin lo recomiedo a todo el mundo , no se arrepentirán.

Ya sólo con el título lo digo todo!!! Mi estancia en Cordial fue ESTUPENDA, quiero DESTACAR, que ya antes de ir, previa información por internet y por teléfono, nos dieron una visita guiada (incluido el interior del apartamento), instalaciones, etc, por lo que si ya teniamos claro que ibamos a ir, despues de eso simplemente fue confirmar nuestas expectativas y sin habernos alojado!!! El apartamento....sin palabras todo de primera calidad, realmente cómodo, amplio (qué terraza!!!! y esa ducha que tantas veces ayudó a paliar el calor!!!), la cocina con todo lo necesario....lo que veis en las fotos es VERDAD, es todo así de IDEAL. Como anécdota, decir que el día de nuestra llegada, cayó tremenda lluvia y claro se filtró algo de agua....pero vamos parecía que tenia el servicio de habitaciones conmigo porque enseguida se prestaron a cambiar de habitación, limpiar todo, dejarnos algo para secar el suelo....un ENCANTO!!! El spa, fue otra de las cosas que nos hizo decantarnos por este alojamiento. Destaco, que gustarnos nos gustó TODO!!!! Pero si tuvieramos que destacar algo, sería que durante nuestra estancia parecía que el complejo era nuestro, porque aunque habia gente, no estaba nada masificado (y eso es muy de agradecer), por lo que la tranquilidad esta ASEGURADA. Ya por último, cuando fuimos, apenas estaba "recién inaugurado" por lo que faltaba una piscina por abrir y nuestras cenas las realizabamos en el Hotel Cordial Mogán Playa, al lado del estableciemiento y al cual también incluyo en todos los halagos que he hecho del apartamento. Por lo demás el pueblo de mogán es precioso. Así que, aunque Mogán queda "algo retirado", merece la pena darse una escapada.

Wir waren insgesamt sehr zufrieden. Gestört hat der Lärm der Busfahrer, die ständig an einer unübersichtlichen Kehre hupten, an einer Straße die unmittelbar hinter der Anlage liegt. Außerdem störte der Buslärm eines Busparkplatzes der unmittelbar vor der Anlage liegt. Die Busse kommen spät abends dorthin und fahren sehr früh morgens wieder ab und lassen dann ihre Motoren laufen. Entgegen einigen Beschreibungen ist es keine 4 Sterne Hotelanlage, sondern eine 3 Schlüssel Apparmentanlage.

I visited this hotel in June 2009, and was prepared to be slighly disapointed with the hotel in comparison to the photos online. However it was far better than expected. The pictures do not do this hotel justice. On our arrival we were greeted with a glass of cava each and given the room we requested on a high floor with excellent directions - and had no problem finding the room. (we were given a map to follow) The room was spotless and had everything we needed for a self catering holiday. In comparison to most hotel rooms or apartments it was quite big with plenty of space. The best feature was definatly the balcony with 2 sun loungers a small table, a large table with 4 chairs and an outdoor shower. The view from the room was also great. We chose a room on a high floor - we were floor 9 at the very top. If you plan to spend a lot of time on the balcony i would recommend a high floor as some are shaded by balconys above. There are two ceiling fans one in the bedroom the other in the living room/kitchen, we left one key in the room to keep the fans going while we were out, and the doors open when we were in to circulate air which worked ok. Theres plenty of storage space in the apartments in comparison to other hotels with two wardrobes with pelnty of hangers, and 3 drawers in the bedroom. Great laundry facilities right beside the pool, with 2 washers and 2 dryers. The hotel was very quiet and plenty of sunloungers around the 3 pools - which were quite cold. Plus the kids pool. And no pool was particularly busy and therefore very relaxing. The staff make this hotel, the reception staff were more than friendly, and did anything possible to help you. The animation team were great and made the stay even more enjoyable. Entertainment at the weekends was good except for the 60s band on saturday nights which we avoided. Rooms are cleaned throughly on a regular bases with no cleaning on a sunday or thursday, however extra towels are left the day before. 14 euro desposit for the safe each week, and 30 euro for the tv remote - which is refunded when the remote is returned. Only problem we had was ants in the bed one night, however the sofa in the living room folded out into two singles, we slept there for one night and within 30minutes after telling reception the next morning the bedding was changed and the room cleaned. Late checkout is available for 25 euro, but you need to ask this on the day you leave and not before, however we were given a courtesy room for 45 minutes on leaving with no charge but you must also book this on the morning of your departure. The gym in the hotel is less than adequate (from my partners opinion) however he went to the gym across the street 10 euro for one week membership which was much better in equipment and value. Hiperdino is much cheaper than the spar, however both the indian and buger bar across the street do cheap meals to sit in and take away. Puerto Mogan is beautiful and much less "tacky" than the other resorts. It was out first stay in Gran Canaria and from seeing the other resorts i would safely say i would never stay in them and would always opt for puerto mogan. The market on fridays is a great way to fill a morning and it stretches the whole way around the harbour. Theres a great artist selling his own paintings of mogan and other resorts at the end of the harbour at the last stall for resonable prices. Great italian restaurant in the square in Puerto Mogan - the clipper (tucked away in the corner with a football shirt up inside) Great pizza and pasta for reasonable prices. (we both ate with one glass of wine/beer for 35 euro) Overall this was a great holiday and we didn't want to leave, and would return again many times! I tried to find faults with this hotel on our return home, and i am very fussy, however i could'nt find a single problem with the hotel - it was perfect.

We are a couple in our early 50s, so the following is based on our frame of reference Start with slight negative on these apartments, as many have said before can be confusing to find your room on arrival, lots of lifts and floors, just follow the map supplied on arrival and will be ok. Apartments are less than a year old and are to a very high standard, balconys large and ideal for sunbathing. 3 pools, sun hits them from 11am omwards. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We were self catering so cannot comment on standard of food. Will definitley return to this hotel, Definately 4 star. Supermarket Dino opposite complex stocks every thing you would need for a SC holiday. Also in same shopping mall a bar with entertainment nightly, Spar supermarket slightly cheaper than Dino and more choice 5 mins walk towards resort centre. Resort beach and harbour approx 15 mins walk along very attractive tree lined avenue.Beach clean with a number of resturants within mitres of the sand. Harbour is lined with resturants and is without question the perfect setting for an evening meal. During the day ferrys arrive and depart every 10 minutes or so, therefore lots of day trippers, but in the evening less busy and nice atmosphere. Eating out similar prices to UK. No chavs or idiots in union jack shorts trying to drink the world dry here (go to P Rico for clubs, time share touts etc), just easy going people chilling out in fantastic surroundings. Bandstand in harbour area surrounded by resturants, had live entertainment (jazz band) while we were there, great atmoshere, with couples dancing in the warm spring evening. Mogan: the contrast between the other resorts we travelled through from the airport is startling. This resort is without question the jewel in this islands crown, We would not consider anywhere else in the Canaries. A fantastic holiday, we have travelled the Med extensively and done most of the Greek islands, but this special. Enjoy

Bueno que voy a decir que una vez mas se consiguio el objetivo de la visita, aunque esta vez nuestra camarera de pisos fue fantastica nos atendio a lo largo de la semana con una profesionalidad extrema. La habitación era espaciosa y con mucha claridad y como ya conociamos el establecimiento no hemos tenido ningún problema con adaptarnos. Contratamos la media pensión y para un establecimiento de 3 estrellas la comida que vi me impresiono, la verdad que hay hoteles de 4 estrellas que no ofrecen tanta cariedad de comida,era abundante y cocinada al momento. El SPA es brutal por fin decidí dejar el tenis a un lado y disfrutar de la sauna, el baño turco que tenia una bobeda estelar que cambiaba de color y una sesión de flotación es como estar en el espacio en gravedad cero. Aunque durante esta semana santa hacia un pco de calor para jugar al tenis me las arregle para hacer un par de horas nocturnas. Continuen así y seguro que nos veremos una vez más.

We had a brilliant time at the Cordial Mogan Valle, despite the fact it was really quiet, despite being Easter break. We stayed self-catering in a spacious, clean and comfortable two bedded apartment. The master bedroom had an en-suite with corner bath and there was another, smaller bathroom next to the smaller bedroom. The kitchen has a hob and microwave, a fridge and plenty of storage space. The loung was comfortable enough to relax in when it got a bit chilly. The pool areas are great. The larger pool with the kids "spitting snakes" was fun and better than the average kid's pool. There is a small play area, with slide and a game for the kids to play, it was more of a meeting point for adventure games than anything else. We also used the infinity pool, which was lovely, but not the third pool. We ate in the restaurant twice (first night and a night in between when we really couldn't be bothered to do anything!) The food was plentiful and hot, as was breakfast on our first morning. I would imagine it got a little repetitive though, if half board. Drinks were expensive, but with "Hiper-dino" across the way it is easy to but drinks for around the pool. The bar at night had poor entertainment, but we had fun with the kids and other parents. The Animation Team work really hard to keep up and get those that want to moving - the cocktail game was good fun and ranged from making paper aeroplanes to spitting ice cubes. The bar is expensive though, and sometimes takes forever to get served despite not having many customers. The walk into town took between ten and fifteen minutes, if you have small children get them to walk on one colour fish only - worked a treat for us! The beach restaurants and harbour ones are fantastic. We didn't have a bad meal, will post a review in the foody bit, but Cafe de Mogan and the Canarian restaurant on the square with the wooden barrels were our favourite. Some people have talked about the difficulty finding their way around - it was great fun watching new arrivals fall out! Two tips - the lift by the infinity pool takes you to reception and the one by the pool tables near the bar takes you (via two lifts) to the main pool. Access to the third pool is from the infinity pool! Just remember that D is your block, the first number your floor and the last two numbers your room! So D925 is black D, Floor 9 room 25 (925). Spa was great too, I had a brilliant massage. We had a great time and would return in an instant. Any questions feel free to message me.

We were plesantly surprised by the size and quality of the apartments. They were very clean and had tasteful decor. The balcony was huge with 2 sun loungers and a table with 4 chairs. Our apartment was in block J room 537 which was the block nearest the sea. I would suggest when booking you ask for an apartment on a high floor with a sea view and you won't be disappointed. We had 2 single beds pushed together but understand that some rooms do have double beds on request. The entertainment was poor and the bar was very expensive. We ate in one of the many lovely restaurants in Puerto Mogan. Our favourites include El Capuchino (excellent fish)and La Bodequilla (tapas) if you want to splash out. We did go into the hotel next door a couple of nights for the entertainment which was better. The resort itself was quiet after 11 at night so if you want a good night life don't come here. Would definetly return to these apartments.

We drove from the airport to Puerto Mogan in about 45 minutes, with the apartment complex very easy to find and plenty of parking close by. A very welcoming check-in process (aided by glass of Cava). The receptionist gave detailed instructions to find the room although they were not entirely accurate. However we soon found the quickest way to/from the room & stuck with it. The infinity pool being centrally located is very easy to find, while the other two on the ground floor take a bit more hunting. The one bedded apartment was fine with a reasonably spacious bathroom. The kitchen was reasonably well equipped, however while a corkscrew was provided, wine glasses were not and the bar wanting a €10 deposit to borrow a couple for a day! We had an L shaped balcony which while not as large as some in the complex was fine for two people, but any more would have a problem. While we were relatively high up on the F7 level there was not much of a view, only the roof of the apartment in front of us and a side view of the sea in the distance. A 10 min walk to the main part of the village where there are plenty of bars & restaurants. In the evening we preferred the area around the marina as there was much more atmosphere than in the restaurants that fronted the beach. We had opted for B&B which saved having to go to the nearby supermarket every morning and while the breakfast buffet had plenty to chose from, the restaurant was a bit canteen like and quite noisy with young children. In summary a good place to go to catch some winter sun, but not sure how robust the apartment furnishings will prove to be.

Took off on time from East Midlands and arrived 30mins early. Easy to find transfer bus due to efficient Thomson’s rep(s). 45 min transfer (only one other stop in Taurito) then had an hour wait for room to be ready. Free fizzy wine and orange provided then went for a look around. At least two couples (only staying for a week) where transferred to the hotel (Mogan Playa) including meals at no extra cost because the complex was full. One couple were happy with this but another couple only agreed if they could have a kettle! (which they provided). Back on time (2.00pm) and room ready. We asked for a key to the room safe and a TV remote. No mention at the time but on checking out was charged 28Euros for the safe for the two weeks, which thanks to TA we were expecting. We were not charged for TV remote. Even though we thought we were well prepared for finding our rooms we weren’t! It is just an illogical and confusing layout. I have made an attempt at a method to find your way but it will be boring, confusing and probably a waste of time so I will post it at the bottom of this trip report. The complex is now fully open with the restaurant fully functioning and the infinity pool completed. All reception staff speak very good English and are very friendly and helpful. We did not use the restaurant, as we ate out every night, but I think it was 7.50Euro for breakfast and 20Euro for dinner. The rooms themselves are very, very nice with quirky furnishings but all very clean and still new looking. We had a very large balcony (8M x 8M) that had a proper table and chairs and sun beds (not the usual plastic) and an outside shower. Beware; it is obvious that not all balconies are as large as this! There seemed to be anything you would want provided for cooking etc. but as we ate out we didn’t use much. The only thing we missed were a couple of mugs (just small tea cups provided) for that essential morning coffee fix. The rooms were well cleaned each day (not Sunday and Thursday) by friendly staff although not so good with English although with our limited Spanish and their English we were able to talk. About three times a week there is a show in the Bar Salon starting about 9.30 with I think kids activities just before. With one exception all were watchable and a couple of the shows were good with the kids (Acrucuba and Acrobatty.). One night of Ballet/flamenco dancing and one a waste of time, a trio Magic Sound. These stood for three plays doing nothing, sang about three songs and then disappeared for 35 mins and maybe more, we had left! There are three pools. Two are at ground level one in each of the north and south sides. The one in the south side has a kid’s pool and seemed to be very busy and sun beds looked to be at a premium around this pool (this also gets the sun first at about 10.00am). The second in the north side was very quiet. The third pool (just recently opened) is an infinity pool on (main lifts) button three, in about the centre, and was very quiet all the time we were there (our rooms, on level 8, overlooked it two levels down). I think this is in part because it is 1.34M deep throughout its length and so discourages kids who cannot swim. This gets the sun about 10.45am. The south pool is accessible via the side gate (use your room card) this also leads to the Spa and outside bar. Considering the apartments were full and it was half term we wondered where every one was as nothing (well perhaps the south pool) was busy. The apartments are situated on the east side of a barranco at the top of the valley. There is a very pleasant paved (with fish pattern) walk-way to the port which is lined with gardens, palm and banana trees. Although it is about 15mins (25mins when you have relaxed after a couple of days!) to the port it is a very pleasant walk with no site or sound of cars until you reach the port. On the way down you pass first a large supermarket then a partially occupied shopping centre (with Indian and another restaurant), a gym, a school and finally a couple of shops and restaurants. Don’t read this unless you can’t sleep! The site is split notionally into north and south (nearest the sea) and you will be told which half you are in as well as given a map and directions. You will be given a room number like 815 but if you look at the key etc it will say e.g., B815. The important thing is to think of this as B8 (block B level 8) room #15. The first and obvious piece of advice is to follow your instructions, even if they seem “wrong”. There is a bank of three lifts, near to reception, and these are the ONLY lifts that connect (most) of the complex and reception. With one exception these are what you will use all the time. Button one puts you out at the restaurant and Bar Salon, button two is where you will be told to go to if you are in the north half and button three if you are in (most) of the south side. The north side has blocks A-D and levels 4 to 9 and the south side has blocks D-L and levels 1 to 9 (the south side stretching further down the hill side). If you could stand facing the apartments block A (levels 9,8 and 7) would be in the top left and block L (levels 3,2 and 1) would be to the bottom right with all the rest in order between. If you are in the north turn right out of the lift at button two and walk along past the infinity swimming pool which will be above you, carry on round the end of the pool and then carry on passed the first of the lifts that you come to. These are the first of the 22 lifts that you could use but like many of the others these only go down and are used extensively by the maids etc. Now you need your block and level number. If you are in blocks A,B,C and half of D you need to find an up lift (usually hidden behind the lift shaft!). If in blocks G and H you need to find a down lift. You then need to find the level and then your room. If you get lost read from the signs what block and level you are on (it is backed in red) and then navigate to the correct block and level. E.g. if you find yourself at C7 you need to go up one level and across one block to get to B8. Your rooms will be somewhere off the corridor. The south side has blocks (half of) D then E,F,I J K and L. As we were in the north side I am not quite so sure of these directions. If you are in blocks E,F.I and J leave the lift at button three and turn right for blocks E and F you need an up lift I and J a down lift then use the same navigation as above to find first your block and then your level and then your room. If you are in blocks K and L you need to go back out of the main door and left down the path that closely follows round the building till you get to a gate, use you room card to get through and then navigate from there. All staff are very willing to help and will help you locate your rooms. Don’t forget that to get back to reception you have to get to the bank of three lifts. Common mistakes, seen through out our two week stay. As the three main lifts open in different directions you must follow your instructions (i.e. turn right or left) don’t use instinct! People going to the north side reach the end of the pool and try and use the first lift. People in the lower blocks of the south side go out the main door and turn right and not left (down the not very obvious path) and are seen trailing their cases up the road until they see that they can not get in and trail them back. All that being said it took us about 15mins to find our room and you’ve then got the rest of your holiday to enjoy! My brain hurts and I wish I hadn’t started this! If, when you have been, you can do a better job then PLEASE have a go.

Read all the reviews before we left so just wanted to add a few of my own. Loved our holiday here with two kids ages 6 and 10 months. We couldn't get a two bedroom apartment so ended up in a one bedroom and on the sofa-beds. These my partner found pretty uncomfortable. Used the cooking facilities for ready-steady cook like meals -using the two rings and microwave. Made full use of the laundry facilities despite the £4/3 charge- they are situated between blocks K and L. Ate out a fair bit and tried to ignore the prices. Enjoyed trips to the beach 15min away. Also enjoyed plenty of parking for hire car. And excellent "animations" in the morning for our 6 year old. Would definitely go back again.

A thoroughly enjoyable stay. The check in was trouble free with extremely friendly and helpful reception staff. Once we found our rooms, the layout can be a little tricky at first, we were pleasantly surprised by the size and standard. We stayed half board and the restaurant is a credit to the matre dee (Vladimir) and the waiters are the most friendly people I have come across in a long time. Puerto Mogan is lovely and we will be returning to the resort and the Mogan Valle very soon.

On arrival, a glass of sparkling wine awaited us in reception - just what was needed after a long journey. Other reviewers have made mention of the hard to understand layout of the apartments - now, instead of getting a map of the resort, the receptionist gives you a map of the apartments. Directions to our apartment were very concise and he had marked our apartment on the map as well so we had no problem navigating our way to our apartment. The apartment itself was clean and tidy and larger than many self catering apartments we have stayed in. Plenty of storage space and wooden hangers in the wardrobes. Pillows are not good - no spares in the apartment. Bathroom large and airy. Wash basin set in a vanity top so there was plenty of space with a large mirror over and plenty of light (often a problem in hotel rooms both here and overseas!). there is also a window in the bathroom! Because of the layout of the apartments, built down the side of a valley, each apartment has a really large balcony with table and four chairs together with two sun loungers and a small table. There is also a shower in one corner! Sun got to us around midday, so if you go down to the village in the morning for a coffee and spot of people watching, by the time you come back for lunch, the sun is on the balcony. Don't drink in the apartment complex - very expensive. a glass of wine (which was a small 18.5 ml bottle) and a small beer was nearly 9 euros - ie £9! There is entertainment every night - we came back for what was billed as a professional group - they would not have got through the preliminary rounds of X Factor!!!!! Unusually, for an apartment complex, there is a spa and fitness centre. didn't try gym but did have a couple of treatments - very good. Only thing was that the spa was closed on Mondays and Saturdays when we were there. The village is about a 10 minute stroll away down a wide paved pedestrian walkway with plenty of lighting so it was a pleasant stroll down to the harbour for morning coffee and then again for dinner in the evening - at least the walk stopped us being totally lazy! Restaurants are good and at least in Puerto Mogan you don't get pestered by the waiters to go into their restaurant like you do in the neighbouring resort of Puerto Rico which is a huge bonus - we felt that we could eat where we wanted and weren't pressurised to go into one particular restaurant. Mozart is a good one - very good pork fillet with gorgonzola. Bruschetta is the one for morning coffee - as it is an Italian restaurant you do get a proper cappuchino! the restaurant to the left of that (can't remember the name) does a very good fillet steak!. Eating out was expensive but the resort is an expensive one anyway and with the £ being so bad against the euro it felt more expensive. don't bother to go to th eFriday market - the tour reps tell you that there is a lot of African goods there as the island is only some 60 miles from Africa - yes there are some stalls selling African goods, but the majority of the stalls are full of the usual tat you find in market stalls anywhere in the world - ie cheap clothing, watches, etc. Not worth the bother of walking round. I was disappointed as, because it is a weekly event, I thought it woudl be more colourful and with more local goods on sale - not at all. All in all we were impressed by the apartments at Mogan Valle - they are relatively new and therefore the decoratons are clean and appliances in teh kitchen all work. It has certainly spoiled us for other apartment holidays.

En esta nueva visita a este complejo, nos damos cuenta que todo va en mejoría, como siempre quedamos encantado por lo que se nos ofrecio y como se nos trato. Era nuestra primera visita desde que se puso en funcionamiento los restaurantes. Podemos comentar que los desayunos fueron buffet muy variados y de excelente calidad, de igual manera las cenar eran implecables. Probamos tb el restaurante tex mex, a mi mujer y mi hija le encanta ese tipo de comida, yo soy más tradicional, pudiendo decir q el servicio y la calidad de los platos fue estupenda. Como se podrá deducir, seguiremos visitando siempre que podamos, (seguro que menos veces de las que deseariamos), este complejo.

Los apartamentos son un poco laberinticos al principio pero una vez familiarizado con el entorno es muy facil de encontrarse. El personal de restaurante y comedor han sido fantasticos, especialmente una camarera de restaurante andaluza que se preocupo mucho por nuestro niño pequeño. Los apartamentos están muy bien amublados y con un gusto exquisito. No dudo que en nuestras proximas vacaciones volveremos a estos apartamentos, el sol no salia hasta las 10,30 de la mañana en nuestros apartamentos aunque eso nos permitia dormir hasta tarde especiamente los crios.

Just back from a very relaxing week at the Mogan Valle, first foreign holiday with a 7 month old and a great success. As other reviews report the apartments are lovely, well sized, furnished and decorated. We had a 2 bedroomed apartment which also had a second bathroom with spacious corner bath. The apartments form one side of the valley floor, slightly inland, so they overlook the opposite side of the valley, no sea views here. The positive side of this is that the harbour and marina area remains compact and very attractive, unlike other resort areas with tier upon tier of apartments overlooking the sea. Although the port area was apparently purpose built in the last 20 or 30 years it is beautifully done with bougainvillea everywhere and lots of little nooks and crannies and little lanes to wander around. The apartments themselves are about a 10 minute walk to the beach and port area down a wide and flat pedestrianised walkway. The resort as a whole, and these apartments especially, seemed to attract mostly young families with babies and toddlers and older couples. Not the area for teeming nightlife. The staff were fantastic with our baby, in both the apartments but also in the resort more widely, really friendly and welcoming, certainly no awkwardness as yet more food ended up on the floor. It made it very easy to enjoy our holiday. There is a very well equipped supermarket just 5 minutes walk away so self catering would be ok. We stayed bed and breakfast and the breakfast spread was comprehensive and fresh with lots of very yummy vanilla cream pastries! We didn't try eating there in the evenings so can't comment. Nor did we try the spa so no comments there either. There are lots of lovely restaurants in the resort area though with plenty of choice I had wondered how the apartments could be so confusing to get around as other reviews have commented, but yes, they can be. Essentially the apartmentsare staggered up a hillside and there are many lifts but each only goes up 3 or maybe 4 storeys, due to the staggering. Plus as the apartments climb the hill they are set increasingly back so you end up having to walk back some metres to get another lift to continue on your way, if that makes any sense! The bus station is just a few minute walk away and there are regular buses to Playa des Ingles and up to Las Palmas so it easy to go out exploring if you wanted to We thoroughly enjoyed our week and would consider a return trip.

My new wife and I stayed at the Cordial Valle Apartments in Puerto Mogan for our honeymoon between 3rd and 17th January 2009. We chose this particular place mainly on the basis of reports from other travellers on this website. We checked in very quickly and found the reception and staff very helpful. It can be a little confusing to find your way around at first but let's be honest, the apartments are built into the side of a mountain and we actually found the layout easy to navigate around after a couple of days (my wife is also 4 months pregnant and she didn't complain!!). The room we were given on the 6th floor was excellent, very clean with a massive balcony, outdoor shower, sun loungers, table and 4 chairs. The view was also good, looking down towards the sea and Puerto Mogan itself. I have read some reviews complaining about the mountain views but what would you expect from an island that is mainly volcanic rock! We mainly sunbathed on the balcony but on the few occasions I used the pool, I was always able to obtain a lounger and the pool was clean and heated. Granted, the sun did not reach the pool until 11 am but again, you have to remember that we visited in January - I would imagine this will change in the summer months. We also found the supermarkets well equipped and within easy access. Puerto Mogan itself is a beautiful place if you are looking for a laid back holiday and every restaurant we visited served excellent food (I would recommend Cafe de Mogan). We used the snack bar at the apartments for lunch and again, the food and staff were excellent. The gym and sauna/jacuzzi were also well looked after and I also used these during our stay. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cordial Valle Apartments and are planning to go back again next year (we will also have a little one, complete with buggy!) and cannot wait to return.

My wifeand I stayed in the apartments for a week at the end of November. We hired a car from the airport and found them without any problems whatsoever. The hotel reception staff were helpful and polite and had no difficulties describing the facilities or giving us any advice when asked. The apartment block is still under construction but the builders didn't spoil our stay at all - it was even amausing trying to decide what they were trying to achieve at times. Noise and dust were kept to a minimum. The apartments are very spacious and well appointed and, because the whole place is brand new, none of the decore is scuffed or damaged and the towels, bedding etc. are all brand new as well. How long this will last will be the testament of the hotel and apartments. The one criticism I would have is the overall design of the place. It is rumoured that there are in excess of 20 lifts but none of them carry passengers for more than a couple of floors. That means that you wander a corridor to one lift, go up a couple of floors, wander in another direction to another lift etc etc etc. I felt I needed Sat Nav to find my room some days! Also, to get to the apartments from the reception there is a lift - what I never found were stairs in case of fire. All the other lifts in the complex have stairs at the side of them but not these. Not being a morbid person I don't even know why I thought of it but, since I did I thought I would share. I don't think there is any risk because there are ample opportunities to get to the gardens but they don't give any access to the streets. The apartments are only a 10 miniute easy walk to Puerta Mogan that really is one of the most picturesque villages with ample opportunity to eat. The exchange rate when we were there made everything expensive but that's not their fault. There is a good supermarket very close by for those who want to self cater. One draw back to hiring a car and using this as a base to explore the island was the road between Puerta Mogan and Puerta Rico that is very narrow and on the cliff edge most of the way. There are a couple of bends that buses have difficulty getting round and the locals obviously know it a lot better than me given the speeds and overtaking manouvres they continually achieved. I will be staying at Puerta Mogan again as it is the prettiest place we visited but I will also be watching Tripadvisor to see if they keep the standards up before booking the apartments again.

We stayed at the Mogan Valle Apartments between 29th Nov - 8th Dec. We have a 3 yr old so booked a two bedroom apartment and it was lovely, really well equipped and spacious and we even had our own ensuite bathroom with lovely corner bath, also the water in the bathroom was always lovely and hot for baths and showers. The balcony was huge with a table and chairs and two sunloungers and a shower. The apartment was spotless and cleaned most days and given new towels. We were self catering and there is a supermarket opposite the hotel were you can get anything you need. Pool at the hotel is lovley and warm this time of year. It was a 15 minute walk to beach along a nice promenade, very safe for children. The beach is again very safe for children. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from to eat at, our favourite was 'Clipper' in the Port area. All the restaurants were very child friendly. We got a indian take away one night from the Indian opposite the hotel which was delicious. I dont think there is much nightlife in Mogan but as we have young children we wern't after that anyway. There was a junior disco in the bar every night at 8 for the children. The only thing we were surprised at is how expensive eating out was, the hotel was cheap enough but at the restaurants on the sea front and harbour we were spending 60-80Euros a night (inc bottle wine, 3 main courses and starters), but I expect you could find cheaper places if you looked and we have not been to canaries for 3 years so maybe we were abit out of touch on this. Having said this we could not complain because every meal we had was fantastic and its not their fault the Euro = £ was so bad. I would really recommend this resort for foodies! All in all I would 100% reccomend this hotel and resort to families with young children. We loved it and I am quite fussy. I would definately go back.

Stayed at the Cordial Mogan apartments from 1st to 8th November. After reading most of the excellent reviews I was worried that it might not live up to its expectations but I am happy to say I worried needlessly and the apartments far exceeded all expectations. We arrived at silly 0' clock (4 in the morning) and luckily, because I had read on Trip Advisor that it is difficult to find the apartment, I made sure I had pen and paper with my passport and wrote the directions down. It did save a lot of hassle. The restaurant wasn't finished and so we were upgraded to the hotel's restaurant for our meals. I have to say that every meal was excellent. There was always lots of choice and everything was served hot. If there was a criticism to make it was that it got very busy and sometimes there were long queues. When we stopped and thought about it though, it was because WE (the people from the apartments) were there and that was what was making it busy. On our last day my husband overheard a waiter telling a hotel guest that the hotel restaurant was 120 per cent full because the apartment restaurant was not open. Our apartment was so spacious with two patio doors - one leading from the bedroom to the balcony and the other from the living room to the balcony. All the furniture and equipment was in pristine condition. The balcony easily accommodated a table and four chairs and the two sun loungers. I have never seen such huuuuge balconies in self catering apartments. There should be three pools but the third one hasn't been finished yet. There were plenty of sun loungers available at all times we visited the pool. I don't know whether it wasn't busy because we were not in the children's school holidays, because the weather wasn't too hot or whether people preferred the privacy of their huuuuuge balconies. We found the pianist and saxophone player in the hotel to be so relaxing. We used to listen to them before and after dinner. Mogan itself is a delightful place to be. Your holiday can be as quiet or as busy as you want it to be. Sometimes we would just stroll along to the harbour and people watch. There is a bus stop directly across from the apartments and the No 1 bus takes you into Puerto Rico. The No 32 takes you into Ingles. Both places are well worth a visit. As already mentioned on Trip Advisor, Orilla's bar is well worth a visit. We went there twice and both evenings were different. Antonio is such a happy person and his enthusiasm for music and life rubs off on you - a truly professional entertainer. You are guaranteed to come away singing! A boat trip to Puerto Rico is well worth doing. For 10 euros we got a return trip, with a cup of Sangria and the captain even did an impromptu stop so we could see dolphins. I am trying very hard to think of the negative points of this holiday and I give up. Unless I am really nit picking I cannot think of any. I cannot blame the apartments for two overcast days or for the fact that my plane did not leave to go back to Gatwick until 8.30 pm! To sum up - we had a truly wonderful holiday. I am not called fussy for nothing and if I say it was wonderful then it was!!!!! We were only home for a day and I was already on the 'phone to Thomsons to book for next year. This time I did it properly though and booked for two weeks instead of one.

We had a great week at these lovely apartments. The apartments were spacious, comfortable and well equipped- in fact one of the best we have ever stayed in. Almost like a boutique hotel. We were on 8th floor and although lifts can be confusing at first we had no problems.The reception staff are in the main fine but some were more helpful than others. Only negative really was being charged to use safe in room and the bar was very quiet apart from entertainment nights- which we managed to miss. The resort is lovely, very pretty and well thought out. Great choice of restaurants- our favourite being La Tortuga on the harbour (free apetizer too which was always lovely)- best fillet steak we`ve had in years. Mind you all the restaurants we tried were great even the canarian one near band stand with large wooden round tables despite the very rude owner (not sure if it is a gimmick with him though). Only down side was that apart from eating out there is very little night life- very quiet everywhere but could be because of time of year. I would have no hesitation recommending this resort or these apartments.

Just returned from our hols and we had a really good time, lovely weather, nice location and great apartments. Puerto Mogan is a pretty place right by the marina. Good variety of places to eat about the same prices as in the U.K. Not much for kids to do apart from the beach and no clubs for young people which is all great for the more mature ( like us ) The apartment complex is very modern with lots of art work everywhere and only opened earlier thisyear. Our apartments was really for 4 so we had to pay an extra £144 for under occupancy. It had a large twin bedroom with plenty of storage and lovely decor. A large bathroom with bath with shower in. A large lounge kitchen diner plenty of kitchen eqipment. The lounge was nice comfotable furniture, the sofa was a sofa bed. Good T.V. with only BBC World T.V. in english. A maid came in every day to clean and do the beds. Everywhere in the complex was spotless. The restaurant is still not open but there is a nice bar serving snacks and drinks about the same prices as everywhere else. Ther is a very comfortable seeting area with comfy out door sofas ans chairs. There are 2 pool areas one with a kids pool and play area and snack bar. The only thing you have to get to grips with are the numerous lifts or stairs you have to use to get anywhere. But you soon sort it out after a few wrong turns. Ther is a supermarket opposite and one in the town 5 mins walk away. It is a 10 mins flat walk to the marina.We were dissappointed on our last day thet there was no courtesy room or late checkout as our pick up was not till 10.30 PM . We would definately return as long as we had better flight times.

We have just returned from the Cordial Mogan Valle apartments and had a great week (wish it had been longer). Arrived at about 3.30am and it took us nearly half an hour to find our apartment. We were only on the ground floor but were given the wrong room number! Our apartment was very spacious with a small patio area near to the pool which was surprisingly quiet. Mogan is a beautiful resort. About 10 minutes stroll to the beach and 15 minutes to the restaurants, all of which had great food. Never had a bad meal. It is worth taking a walk to the other side of the harbour to a restaurant called El Faro. There are lovely views both upstairs and down and we were the only couple there one evening which felt very special and romantic! This restaurant is busier during the day when day trippers arrive to go out on the Yellow Submarine which is a 45 minute trip which is worth going on just to see the shipwrecks. The cost is 28 euros per person. We also went on an excursion to the north side up in the mountains in a people carrier which is very comfortable. The views are spectacular but not for the faint hearted! Remember to bring a jacket though as it is freezing! We also had use of the spa, including jacuzzi, sauna, steam room (we understand this was because of the restaurant not yet being open). We also had a look around the Mogan Valle hotel nearby which has the most stunning receiption area! There was just one negative point that we would like to mention about the apartments - if you are leaving late (our coach was collecting us at 11.20pm) it may be worth prebooking a late check-out room. We tried to do so while we were there but had no luck as we were told that all rooms were full. This is fair enough except that they do not provide a courtesy room for you to have a shower after you have spent the day at the pool/beach! We have travelled to many apartments over the years and have never not had a room to shower in on the last day. After speaking to our rep she did manage to persude the hotelier to allow us to use the shower in the spa (closes at 7.00pm). This resort and apartments are a really lovely and relaxing place to spend a quiet week or two and if you want a little more nightlife then Puerto Rico is only a short ride away. It would be lovely to come back again in a few years time and really hope that it has not changed too much as it is just beautiful as it is!

We stayed at the Cordial Valle Apartments recently and were extremely pleased with the accommodation. We always opt, where possible, for quality accommodation and that is exactly what we got. The rooms were exceptionally well furnished, designed to be modern and contemporary. The balcony was huge and again well furnished with a patio table and 4 chairs, 2 sun loungers and an outside corner shower. This apartment hotel is an absolute little gem. Anyone staying will not be disappointed. Take a look at the photos, they speak for themselves. The resort centre and harbour is a delightful little place, we found that it was best to avoid the harbour during the day as it becomes busy with day trippers from other resorts in Gran Canaria. Night time is a different story, it retains a charm and quietness that is so often difficult to find in tourist areas these days. Sitting by the harbour at one of the local restaurants was a great experience. One of our great finds was a little back street Italian restaurant, "La Cucina", run by a very welcoming Italian couple, not much to look at but the food is excellent and very reasonably priced. Best pizzas we've tasted for years.

Acabamos de estar en estos apartamentos, y no queremos rebundar más en que son nuevos y estan en un estado excelente. Lo que si recalcamos es la implecable presencia que tienen, se cuida hasta el ultimo detalle, el apartamento esta totalmente dotado de todo lo necesario, hasta del más minimo utencilio que se necesita en una cocina, (como ejemplo existe un kit totalmente precintado, o sea nuevo, de lavajillas, esponja, trapos, ...). El personal es muy profesional y de trato muy amable, un trato superior a las estrellas que aparecen para este establecimiento. En las pisicinas (existen dos y otra infantil) hay un gran número de hamacas y sombrillas, de sobra para los que estabamos tomando el sol. Nosotros elegimos la que no tiene bar, que es más tranquila, en la otra es donde se realizan las distintas actividades de animación. El complejo en general es tranquilo y la localización, puerto de Mogán, es uno de los rincones más típicos de la isla, turistico pero sin masificación. Un punto aparte es el Spa, magnifico y gratuito para los hospedados. por experiencia de mi pareja se q los masajistas son de primera calidad :). En resumen, puede haber sitio más baratos pero no con esta calidad. Y como prueba de ello es q el día 05 de septiembre volvemos durante tres días

It’s a long time since I’ve stayed in an apartment complex and this is certainly the best one. Transfer from airport was great – a small minibus which went straight to the complex with no other drop offs taking around 40 mins. We were obviously the first occupants in our particular apartment as some of the kitchen facilities still had the seal/wrapper on them. Lovely big rooms with high ceilings and a huge balcony area which had the sun from 10 am until 8 pm with two sun loungers, shower, table and four chairs. We asked for an upper floor prior to arrival and this is what we got. Ground floor apartments open on to the pool area which is good for pool access but means you can’t leave your patio doors open during the day/night, and don’t have the privacy of a balcony. The rooms were hot, despite leaving the fan on 24/7, but bearable. TV has two English channels – you are charged a deposit on the remote, but don’t bother with it – you won’t want to sit in watching TV while you are there. Kitchen had kettle, toaster, microwave, oven, hotplate, filter coffee maker, but only one plug socket. A small pack of washing up liquid and dishcloths was provided. Bathroom was big, and clean with a great shower and massive sink/mirror area. Pool area (we used the one without the snack bar) was nice and quiet, but some visitors still insisted on putting towels out early in the morning, despite notices around the place asking guests not to do this. Spa was good, though had a few teething troubles due to its newness (ie Jacuzzi was out of action) so they gave us a free session in the floatation cave to compensate. Staff were pleasant and helpful enough. Though when trying to borrow an iron (a service one of the brochures in room said was available) we were told we would have to hire one for the week! So we didn’t bother. The adjacent hotel is lovely, with a stunning reception and numerous pool areas and is well worth a visit. Well stocked supermarket opposite, but the shopping centre opposite does not have many shops. Puerto Mogan is lovely with a number of restaurants and bars, and very far removed from a typical tourist area. Some of the restaurants were closed for the summer – we were told they cater more for winter visitors. It was sometimes a little too quiet for us though, so we hopped on the very cheap bus to Puerto Rico a couple of nights, a taxi back was around 15 euros. I would love to go back. My only concerns would be whether the peaceful nature of the complex would be the same when operating at full capacity (I think at least a third of the apartments were not yet in use) and whether the pristine nature of the apartments would be maintained after 12 months of other travellers staying in them.

After our recent 1 week stay (14/7/08) at the Cordial Mogan Apartments, which are self catering, we can advise all potential visitors that they are open, but not fully and are simply fantastic! There are two wings (north and south) and we stayed in the northern wing of which the top 3 floors are still not open, also 1 pool was closed, but this didn't effect our stay. Our ground floor apartment was brand new (we were the first occupants!) and only 5m from the triangular pool and very well appointed. Plenty of space around the pool, although this may change when complex is fully open? Very quite location, Purto Mogan is so different to the other resorts, simply beautiful place to stay, but not recommended for party goers (good reason to stay we think!). Beach is small (a good 10-15min walk from apartments) and a little overcrowded on occassions, but the Cordial complex has first class facilities for sun worshipers so why leave! Recommend visitors visit the local supermarket to stock up on essentials on arrival and sit back to enjoy the peaceful and beautiful location. We were slighlty disapointed with the quality of local restaurants plus they were on the pricey side, food tends to be better away from the quayside, we found the little Italian (caravagio's) in the little venice side streets to be excellent. Fresh fish was excellent, but pricey. Recommend hiring a car to explore the island, cheaper than any tour and you'll get great feel for the island as it is so small, but the roads are not for the faint-hearted in the mountains!!! Overall a very beautiful place to stay and a cut above the rest, we would recommend it for anyone looking for a quality self-catering stay in quiet, peaceful and beautiful location.

We stayed at these newly opened apartments from 14th-28th July and loved them. Considering they have just opened and not all the apartments are ready yet, we were not once disturbed by any work going on. We were the only apartment open along our corridor. We arrived late at night and were helped to our apartment. It took 3 lifts and 2 flights of stairs but later in the week the 4th lift opened. We had a 2-bedroom apartment (until they are fully open, if you are worried about not getting a 2-bed apartment and have young children ring them up before you go. They are giving priorty for these apartments to those with young children). It was fantastic - very spacious. The main bedroom has a HUGE bed (super king size) and en-suite bathroom with corner bath, shower over bath, hairdryer and 2 sinks. The second bedroom has 2 single beds pushed together. There is another bathroom with bath, shower over, hairdyer and sink. The lounge area had TV (only 2 English channels available - CNN and BBC World News), sofa bed, 2 chairs and phone. The kitchen area was well equipped - fridge, 2 ceramic hobs, microwave, toaster, kettle and coffee machine. Only fault was there was only 1 socket so you can't make your tea and toast at the same time. We managed to cook in several times. Our balcony was long and thin but we noticed that the balconies varied a lot in size. There were 2 sun loungers, a table and 4 chairs and a shower. We didn't find the apartments too hot as has been mentioned in other reviews. We kept the doors open and fans on 24-7. From the position of our apartment we felt very safe and figured only spiderman could get in so took the risk of leaving the doors open while were we out to stop it getting so hot. I wouldn't recommend this for all apartments. The apartments by the pool open straight out onto the pool area and are not private at all. You'd have to shut your doors at night. We saw several cockroaches in our apartment - very quickly evicted by hero of a husband! It's part and parcel of going to a hot country. Our apartment was cleaned 5 times a week. Beds are changed twice a week and towels 3 times a week. They do request towels are not left on the floor apart from on towel changing days. We had a problem with the safe but that was sorted out straight away - can't complain considering we were the first in the apartment and we arrived at about 11pm. The next day we couldn't open the lounge patio door and again someone came very quickly to sort it out. Outside areas are kept very clean. We were amazed at how beautiful the plants were considering the place at just opened. There are currently 2 out of 3 pools open. We only used the one by the bar as it has a childrens' pool. It was great for kids. There is a playground but it only has a slide and that gets RED hot in the sun. The supermarket across the road is very well equipped and is open 9am-9pm. There is also a Spar further towards the port which has a bigger meat selection and lovely freshly baked bread throughout the day. It's about a 15 minute walk to the beach/harbour along a paved walkway. The beach was quiet during the week but it gets very busy at weekends when the locals descend. The harbour area is beautiful and has a good selection of restaurants. We had a fantastic holiday and wouldn't hesitate to return to these apartments.

My family of 2 adults and 2 kids (05 & 13yrs) stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment for 2 weeks from the 05th july 2008. These are only open about 2 weeks prior to arrival. Probably one of the best standards of apartments we have ever stayed in. 9 floors high, so a series of steps or lifts to be negotiated at all times. Accom is very spacious with couch converting 2 single beds in the living room, quite a large bedroom, huge bathroom and fully fitted kitchen. Balcony very spacious with 2 sunbeds and table & 4 chairs.Towels and bedlinen changed Monday/Wed/Fri. 2 very nice pools with ample sunbeds. Washing machines and dryers avaialble at 4 euro per load. Nice restaurant on site with a bar but entertainment has begun yet.No proper kids club.Just 1 animator who plays volleyball twice a day.Spa is absolutely beautiful with treatments not too expensive.Hyperdino supermarket right across the road.Beach about 10mins walk as is also the port area for the restaurants.Eating out is limited in Porto Mogan unless you like Tapas.2 of our fav restaurants were Marina Bar (Irish) and Clipper (Italian). Bus to Puerto Rico was 5 euro oneway for the 4 of us.However Mogan is so beautiful and peaceful, you would not want to leave. The only problem I had with this holiday was the staff of Cordial Mogan Valle. They were so rude and unhelpful at all times . Final tip, you have to vacate apartments by midday on day of departure. You can request a late checkout for a fee of 25.00 euro ut this can only be confirmed on that morning.Overall an excellant accomodation that I would gladly stayin again.

I just got back from these apartments this morning and i had the most amazing holiday. The wait for the apartments to open was well worth it and all the stress and worry that went with it. The apartments are very clean, very well equipped and thought out and if you get one by the pool that is an extra bonus. The staff are tops... they couldn't help out any more than they did... they went out of their way for us and they were very friendly. You also have to check out the health suite too. I am already planning my next trip back there.

Les appartements sont à côté de l'hôtel cordial mogan playa et sont tous neufs (une partie de l'établissement est encore en cours de finition) Que dire ? Puerto Mogan est vraiment la station balnéaire la plus sympa de Grande canarie, bien loin de l'agitation de playa del ingles ou puerto rico. Les apparts sont spacieux (50 m2 environ), confortables et bien équipés. La terrasse est grande. Egalement plusieurs piscines faciles d'accés ou que l'on soit. Sans oublier l'accés gratuit au sauna, à la salle de sport et au jacuzzi ! Un bar et un snack bien accueillants également. Pas d'animations (sauf certains soirs pour les enfants) ce qui fait que l'hébergement est super calme tout le temps. En résumé, allez y c'est vraiment top !

We booked this apartment about a month or so before departure and managed to get an excellent half-board rate. We did our research online first and discovered that the apartments were only just opened, but from reading a few forums realised that this was not an issue, and that all was well. We had a very early morning flight, and one thing worth remembering is that Mogan is often the last of the airport drop-offs, so please remember this when considering your flight times, as you will be facing an airport transfer of over an hour. We arrived into the complex about 3am fairly tired and weary, to be greeted by a very friendly member of reception staff who dealt with us swiftly and efficiently. He did say that this was only his second night in the job, but this didnt show, and he even chased after us to announce that because we were on half-board rate that he had some food for us to take up to the room. It was a lovely salad and meat selection, and exactly what we needed after a long transfer. Top marks for this care alone! One thing worth knowing is that after midnight the llighting around the complex goes to a minimum amount, so finding your way around the complex can be an issue in the early hours on arrival, being so unfamiliar with the surroundings. The complex is vast, and the numbering system a little intricate, but after 10mins or so we found our room. This development is brand new, so the room was spotless and very well equipped. You have a kitchen area with microwave and grill, hob, fridge with freezer compartment and ample dishes and cutlery. The seating area has a fold out bed, and the bathroom has a bath and excellent water pressure in the shower. The balcony has modern loungers and seats with a table. You can also hire a parasol for the duration of your stay for a few Euros, but you can manage to stay in the shade with a careful placement of your lounger. One thing missing from the room was air conditioning, but this can be hired for around 40 Euros per week. For a modern development this is annoying, as most people find this a standard requirement. There are three pools in the development, all of ample size, and with the current under-occupancy of the apartments there are plenty of sun loungers to go around. This naturally doesnt stop the idiots that still think they can reserve their own sunlounger by the towel method... One bonus of our early visit was that the restaurant in the development was not ready yet, so we were sent for meals to the adjoining sister hotel the Mogan Playa, which has a far higher room rate. The food there was fabulous, with a wide and varied selection across the week. The half-board rate also allows you to swap dinner for lunch, which we chose to do one day in the Mogan Valle snack bar. The waitress informed us we could choose a starter, a main and a sweet for lunch which was a vast amount of food for us, so we ended up sharing a dish each. Again the quality of food was superb. The development is brand new, and because of this there are a few minor teething issues- 1. staff really dont know the place too well- we were almost sent to the wrong town (good job I know the area and ignored the advice) 2. minor ongoing works- some of the rooms arent finished yet (I heard one horror story of a couple encountering a cat in their room on arrival that had clearly marked out its territory), so there is the odd workman during the day, but not making a lot of noise. 3. the entertainment was poor- its clearly still being tested, but the entertainment in the Mogan Valle was dreadful. Go to the Mogan Playa for entertainment there, as its a bit better. The Four Tops tribute was the best act (although amusingly there are only three of them in the band...) The location of the development really is excellent, with a nice stroll to the harbour and a supermarket and shops located yards away. Take the ferry around to Peurto Rico (I recommend Mama Pinos for food in the Commercial Centre, but eat inside to avoid the Sunglasses salesmen) if you want a noisier scene. On the whole, a great bargain at the moment, even better if you're on half-board rate.

Een goed apartementencompleks, maar door de ligging tegen de berg wel met veel liften (21). Van de receptie naar niveau 9 heb je er daarvan 4 of 5 nodig. Altijd een beetje zoeken. Anders was mijn beoordeling uitstekend geweest. Goed, behulpzaam en (zeer kind-)vriendelijk personeel. Behalve met Spaans kun je er heel goed terecht met Engels en Duits. Eten is goed en voldoende gevarieerd. Kamers zijn zeer ruim, met compleet ingerichte keuken, en worden goed schoon gehouden. Grote balkons of terras indien gelegen aan een zwembad. Supermarkt dichtbij. Voor de gezelligheid in het dorp is het ca 15 minuten lopen. Met het naast gelegen hotel Cordial Mogan Playa zijn goede afspraken over gebruik van faciliteiten. Ook de duikbasis (extradivers) is daar gevestigd.

We had previously stayed next door at the Cordial Mogan Playa Hotel and were a bit nervous about staying at the "cheaper" premises. Also as we had got a coupon on the internet for an unbelievably low price for half board we were doubly anxious. We went in June of this year and apart from the long journey to Puerto Mogan we were happy from the moment we entered the Cordial Mogan Valle. The size and the comfort of the apartments were wonderful. As stated before the balconies were big enough for 2 sunbeds and table and chairs. The colours of the rooms were relaxing and my only concern when we got there was that we were only staying 1 week! The food was excellent and as we only had to cater for ourselves for lunch we shopped at the very convenient supermarked opposite. The staff at the Mogan Valle are really professional and helpful which really adds to the holiday. The little town of Puerto Mogan is the only place in Gran Canaria I would visit as it is so low key and no wild bars or nightly misbehaviour. There was a good misture of nationalities which always makes it more interesting while on holiday. All in all a wonderful trip to the Mogan Valle complex. You are allowed to go into the beautiful Mogan Playa Hotel next door and enjoy the lush wonderful gardens. What more could you ask for ?

Just back from a one week stay 1/11-8/11 at cordial morgan Valle appts. Really enjoyed our stay at puerto de mogan, a really lovely seaside town with some nice waterfront restaurants. The appts were great. Plus side large balcony (we had 4 sun lounges and a table with 6 chairs), 3 large pools plus baby pool with plenty of sunlounges, good breakfast buffe (recommend the omelettes made by the cook to serve), friendly staff and kids liked the activities. Downside is the stairs and lifts and pools could do with being warmed up..although our kids didn't complain. We used the spa which was nice..and my husband had a massage which he rated very highly. We had half pension but swapped some dinners for lunch so we could try some of the waterfront restaurants. The supermarket across the road was great and convenient for drinks and snacks. We did two day trips ..one by boat to Anfi beach and the other by bus (bus no 1) to Amadores beach. Had great weather the whole week and really enjoyed our stay at cordial morgan valle and Puerto de Mogan.

Superb accomodation which was immaculately clean and well presented in all areas. All staff encountered were very friendly. We didnt eaet in the complex -preferring to have breakfast on the huge balcony and most lunches too.We took advantage of the many restaurants by the harbour. The whole holiday was great although the bar in the complex was well stocked and spacious there were few customers and little atmosphere aswell as early closing. The snack bar menu was very limited so did not tempt us. The nearby supermarket had a good variety of fresh food and the Rose was only 2 euros 85 so made for a lovely lunch in the sun !! Would heartily recommend the appartments and hope to return :) Did not use Spa

This is a fine, well-priced hotel. The rooms are large and comfortable, with one of the highlights superbly sized balconies with good shades and blinds to keep the height of the heat off. The pool facilities are good (though unsurprisingly busy at peak times), and the food is perfectly acceptable - not Michelin-starred dining, but that's not what you'd expect in this sort of hotel. The location is good - a 5-10 minutes walk from the beach, shops, and restaurant; and there is a well-stocked and fairly priced supermarket just across the road from the hotel.

I have just been back to Cordial Valle. This time I wished for an appartment with a view, which I got. I do not use any of the facilities at the hote. I make my own breakfast ang have lunch at one of the restaurant at the beach or I go to the fish restaurants where the fishboats are delevering their catch. Fresh and very good fish. I use the free WiFi and it works ok. I just hope that they will have aircondition installed some day. The staff at the reception desk are polite and helpfull. I will be back. Mogan is a quiet place and there are two big supermarkeds there. One across from the hotel and Spar closer to the beach. Both very good.

This is a very nice apartment complex. Particularly suited for families with kids (best to avoid if you are looking for a romantic setting). The apartments are large, clean and comfortable, with a nice terrace. The location is a 10 minute walk from the beach. The buffet is fine and the service is excellent, very efficient and friendly. Everything worked seamlessly. The swimming pools are nice, they have enthusiastic entertaining for the kids, etc.

We visited Gran Canaria for the first time this summer and stayed here for one week. The apartment was much bigger than we expected, and was nice and clean. The balcony was a good size but got a little too hot during the day - for the evening it was perfect though! The staff were very helpful, quickly replacing our kettle as it stopped working. We mostly cooked for ourselves, the supermarket across the way was convenient and well stocked, however there are also some great restaurants by the beach! We spent most days on the beach as we generally prefer this to the pool, however we did notice that unless you get to the pool very early, you might arrive to find every lounger with a towel on it (despite the hotel asking for towels not to be left). On our second day we witnessed an argument break out among guests about if a towel had been moved - after this we decided we'd stick to the beach - and had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday!

The Cordial apartments and balconies are huge. The kitchen equipment could be better but one can 'get by' if the imagination is used when shopping in the very convenient Hiperdino just over the road or the Spar which is a 5 minute walk away. There are three pools to choose from and plenty of sunbathing space. Food is good. Apartment cleaned 5 days out of seven with regular towel changes. No air conditioning but ceiling fans do a reasonable job. Puerto Mogan harbour is gorgeous and well worth the stroll. This was not our first visit and we will be back again!! Thoroughly recommend.

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. Thought hotel was very nice - the apartment was lovely. We were half board and thought the food was very good. Would definitely return. The staff were very friendly and we thought the Entertainment team did a good job. The only thing to spoil the holiday was the fact that we had opted for shuttle bus from airport and this took 4 hours - without any exaggeration. On the return journey we got a cab and that jjourney took 35 minutes. So don't be fooled by claims that transfer takes 1 hour - maybe it does if there are not lots of hotels to drop off at first.... Nightmare.

The rooms are fantastic, ask for a high floor as others have suggested if you are without young children. We have stayed on floor 9 and the views are spectacular. Room is fantastic (1-bedroom apartment). The balcony is huge - comes with a table, 4 chairs and two sun beds on it along with a shower. The pools are very nice. The one closest to us (middle pool, called the infinity pool) was really nice and more quiet than the others which tended to attract families with kids. It would be nice if the hotel made the infinity pool adults only to keep it nice and quiet for those wishing to relax. Plenty of restaurants down the road at the harbour. The walk there is very pleasant and easy. Would certainly recommend this place. We tried the hotel buffet breakfast one morning...it's fine, although glad we opted for the room only option and not go all-inclusive as some do as would get bored and miss out on the nice restaurants in the town.

The apartments are brilliant for a family. They are clean, and are well kitted out. This was the first time we had gone self catering in about 7 years as we were fed up of the restrictions of being all inclusive (the feeling of not wanting to leave a resort as you had paid for the food and drink), but I can honestly say this was a refreshing change. At the resort there are 3 pools 1 is quite noisy as it seems to get all the children playing there (best avoided if no kids), then there is the infinity pool, which is nice and relaxed and then there is a 3rd pool which seems to get overlooked by everyone. This one for me was the best as it wasn't to busy, but had enough going on so that the children did not look as though they were disturbing those who just wanted to sunbathe and relax. The other good aspect about the pools was it was not frowned upon taking your own food and drink to them. The supermarket just outside the apartments was very convenient and stayed open till around 10pm. Prices there are very reasonable. Beach is about 10 minute walk down a non motorised pedestrian walk way, so no real worries about watching the children and traffic. The beaches do get busy at the weekends when compared to the middle of the week, I suspect that this is the influx of locals relaxing. There are lots of restaurants around the harbour/Marina with some great food, and the best thing is that there is no loud disco type bars, and the cliental that these places attract. Would I go back.....Defo and can see why the resort gets so many repeat visits.

Returned from these apartments yesterday ( 2.09.13 ), all I can say is if you are looking for 2 bedrooms with ample space this place has it, the balcony is massive,the master bedroon has a huge double bed & is en suite, whilst the other bedroom has their own toilet next door....fantastic. The resort itself is great, just a 10 - 15 min stroll down to the harbour area for some great food, Zoo Bar is brill or try Mogs if your kids are fussy eaters ( some great chic nuggets ). Puerto Mogan is so nice, avoid Puerto Rico....unless you like Brit Bars & McDonalds !!!!

Thomasponty,
This was our third time at this resort and it was as good as we remember it. It was busier than our previous visits as we usually go at Easter. But this was not a problem but an advantage for our children ages 13 and 11 who made some very good friends over the two weeks that we were there. Firstly the resort is beautifully located and amazing if you like peace and quite. There is very little in mogan but just enough for an easy simple life! We felt totally safe and happy to leave our children to wander from pool to pool and freely around the complex. The rooms were as we remembered and the 3rd and 4 th beds in the lounge area for the children were better than any others we have experienced in other hotels with the same set up. The staff are amazing, without exception in all areas of the hotel. They are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Top tip! Call reception and get more pillows for your comfort! A few things were actually better as now they provide you with a code for multiple devices for free wi fi throughout the complex, poolside, apartment etc. there is also an upgrade from half board where you can pay 20 euros per person per week to have unlimited drinks with your evening meal. This was so money saving as my husband and I would have a bottle of wine with our meal plus a soft drink for the four of us, we really got lots more than our money's worth. There isn't an issue with pool side sun loungers if you have a leisurely breakfast and get to the pool at 10.30-11. A few morning we had to shift loungers around but this was not a problem. Silvan dino and Maria the entertainment team were great also. Thank you. I would highly highly recommend this hotel for a quiet family holiday. And would definitely go back got a fourth visit because there isn't really anything better for the price.

Unfortunatly they have put the kids play area next to the bar, so for us traveling without kids, it wasn't a nice place to relax. Spa area was nice. Good treatments. Service was excellent on all the hotell.

We stayed at this apartment complex in May for a week. It is well located for the small, charming fishing village of puerto mogan as it is only a 10 minute walk to the harbour along an accessible pedestrian walkway. There is a good selection of restaurants and cafes dotted around the scenic harbour and there is also a small beach area where you can hire loungers. Ferries can be booked and accessed from the harbour front. The apartment we stayed in was on level 4 beside one of the pools and we had a small patio area with direct access. It was quite busy during the day and privacy was limited. Given the choice I would prefer to stay in an apartment on a higher level which had spacious balconies and a better view. The public areas were well maintained and clean as were the pool areas which were regularly cleaned. Navigation around the complex was initially difficult as it is quite big and there was a mixture of levels and blocks with poor signage. It was a couple of days before we figured out the layout! Our apartment was pleasant and well equipped with all the kitchen essentials needed if you wanted to cook. The only down side was a poorly fitted shower head which was hard to adjust although the pressure was fine. Housekeeping was regular and through and there were laundry facilities available. The rooms have ceiling fans which we found fine as the weather was around 28 degrees although I feel they might not be adequate in really hot weather and air con would be a bonus. We didn't eat in the complex but there is a snack bar and restaurant on site and a large supermarket directly across the road. Reception staff were pleasant, helpful and unobtrusive. In general we had a really pleasant stay in a nice location. The area is quiet and relaxing and suitable for families and older couples - if your looking for nightlife and late nights I think Puerto Rico would be a better option. However it was ideal for us and we were able to check out other resorts using the regular bus service ( bus station located about 5 mins from complex ) and were happy with our choice of location. Puerto mogan has a bit more atmosphere and character in comparison with other resorts. The town comes to life on Fridays when the market is held mostly selling tack but worth a look. Overall verdict good, reasonably priced accomodation in a really nice location.

Während unseres Urlaubs mit 2 erwachsenen "Kindern" war die Appartmentanlage kompett ausgebucht, zu ca. 50 % mit englischen Familien, ansonsten Skandinavier und deutsche Gäste. Das sehr nette Personal schaffte es, besonders während der turbulenten Abendessensphasen, doch irgendwie allen gerecht zu werden. Da das von uns gebuchte Appartment mit 2 Schlaf- und Badezimmern nicht verfügbar war, wurden uns zwei getrennte Appartments im 9. Stock angeboten, die sehr ruhig lagen und eine schöne Aussicht hatten. Als Entschädigung bekamen wir zusätzlich noch für die gesamte Ferienzeit kostenloses Mittagessen incl. Getränken, das war wirklich eine mehr als ausreichende Entschädigung. Die Zimmer waren sehr sauber, Montags, Mittwochs und Freitags gab es neue Handtücher, einmal wöchentlich Bettwäsche, das war völlig ausreichend. Das Essen bot zu allen Mahlzeiten eine sehr große Auswahl an warmen und kalten Speisen, Salaten, Desserts, Kuchen, Eis. Mittags und Abends wurden verschiedene Fisch- und Fleischsorten nach Auswahl direkt frisch gebraten. Wer da nicht satt/zufrieden ist, dem ist nicht zu helfen. Zum Animations-, Unterhaltungs-, Kinderprogramm können wir nichts sagen, da wir diese nicht in Anspuch genommen haben. In der Anlage schließt die Bar um 23 Uhr, danach war auch wirklich Ruhe. Empfehlenswert war für uns die Anmietung eines Autos von Deutschland aus, mit Hotelzustellung, so konnten wir nach Maspalomas an den Strand, diverse Erkundungstouren ins Inselinnere, Städtetour nach Las Palmas ... Die Autobahn ist seit einigen Wochen bis ca. 1 km vom Hotel fertig, so dass man in 20 Min. in Maspalomas, 30 Min. am Flughafen, 50 Min. in Las Palmas ist.

Exceeded expectations for our family week in the sun (two kids under 7), even though it was a personal recommendation. Nice, straightforward room; great pool; good location close to a lovely small beach framed by great variety of restaurants and bars; good breakfast (though heard from others that other meals for all-inclusive guests were a bit ropey); better than expected service, front desk especially good. Generally really good. Minor grumbles would be lack of aircon (ceiling fans instead) meant nights were quite hot and the lack of enforcement of a 'no reserving loungers with your towels' meant that some mornings there were no sun-loungers available by the kids pool. But these were minor, when everything else was so good.

From the moment we were checked in with a glass of cava, this place hit the spot. Located a pleasant 10 minute walk from the beach, this huge apartment block hugs the cliffs as if hanging on for its life. It's a sprawling complex that, whilst meaning most apartments are away from reception , they're quietly located and very peaceful. Inside, you'll find everything you need for a comfortable stay. The best part however is the generous terrace that has a table with chairs, two comfy sunbeds and a shower!! THe pools looked good but busy( the usual sunbed hoggers abound); we didn't trouble them however and preferred the privacy of our own terrace. Highly recommended and worth double what they charge here

Estuvimos 3 días a final de Junio. Los apartamentos son muy cómodos, sorprendentemente amplios y bien equipados. Ligeramente calurosos aunque la presencia de ventiladores lo suavizaba. Es extraño que no tengan aire condicionado para lo nuevos que son. Las zonas comunes muy variadas, 1 pisicina muy familiar (incluye la piscina pequeñita para niños de 1 año), 1 pisicina menos familiar zona intermedia y 1 pisicina solo adultos. La tipología de apartamentos es muy variada, la mayoría con una gran y estupenda terraza, aunque algunos con menos terraza aunque con acceso directo a piscina familiar. Los servicios de comidas y bebidas nada especial, pero se supone que si vas a unos apartamentos equipados no los debes usar mucho. Supermercado muy bueno justo en frente y playa a 10 minutos de paseo. restaurantes y la bella zona puerto de Mogán a 15 minutos. En definitiva muy aconsejables, pero teniendo muy claro lo que quieres, puesto que hay apartamentos muy cerca de piscina o muy lejos de piscina pero muy tranquilos. Hay que tener en cuenta que la construcción de bancada hace que subir pisos requiere paseo de ascensor en ascensor (pero si estas de vacaciones, ¡que más te da!).

Just arrived back from a lovely week away with my family at this beautiful and peaceful resort of Puerto De Mogan. Upon arrivail at the apartments at Cordial Mogan Valle, we were given a welcome drink and the apartment itself was very well kept although our bathroom looked a bit "tired" but still immaculately clean and served its purpose. The fans made a bit of a noise but you soon got used to it and kept the rooms fairly cool but not as good as air conditioning. The pool area is as most have described and we had no trouble with sun beds for most of the week until this weekend when we found out that it was a bank holiday for the Spanish and as this accommodation seems good value, it became very packed and noisy at the pool area and down at the local beach, it appeared to be quietening down again as we left on Monday - so one would assume that if the locals like this resort and accommodation I would think that this is a good recommendation! Our grandchildren are aged from 2 to 4 years and they enjoyed the mini disco which is held 8 - 8.30 pm and the soft play area. The only "down side" is that a packet of crisps cost 1.50 euros so go well prepared. The beer is very reasonably priced but the cocktails were 5.80 euros and there was not much choice so you would be better off in the town for one of those! There is a supermarket close by which is quite well stocked and if you are cooking in your apartment and a meat lover - a steak does not cost as much as it does in England! There are no oven facilities in the apartment but we ate in three times and had no problems getting round this. The restaurants in the harbour area are comparative with England and very friendly. It only took us 40 minutes from the airport (we went with Skytours) to be dropped off (first drop off) and one hour from being picked up (first pick up). Two sun beds at the local beach including umbrella were 9 euros and again, this is a lovely, well kept beach. I would suggest that this resort/accommodation definitely suits families and if you want peace and quiet - this is the place for you.

Alex W,
Went here with a family of 5 during the February half term, was a good break, friendly staff. Only downsides were the walking of up stairs or using lifts, however this wasn't too much of a problem, This is a lovely place to relax and not do too much with local amenities such as a supermarket down the road, i wouldn't say it was for the people who liked a action packed holiday as everybody is quite relaxed and chilled around the hotel! The beaches are suitable for what is needed, overall the holiday was a nice week break, only other downside was sometimes the temperature fluctuated from being nice and warm to a little bit chilly, however this is what is expected when going in Febuary! Would recommend to people looking for a nice break and relaxation!

My partner and I have recently returned from a week break at the Coridal Mogan Valle apartments and had a wonderful and relaxing break. You can be as inactive or busy as you choose. There are 3 pools, one of which is geared more towards the kids and is busy and noisier than the other two. The infinity pool has more of a gentle breeze as higher up in the complex and the 3rd pool is nestled in amongst the gardens. It is well worth requesting a higher floored apartment as the balcony areas are huge and you get your own sun loungers to sunbathe in private. The restaurant is incredibly well equipped and should cater for the fussiest of eaters. The only down side is that the first sitting (of two) feels rather rushed and we were even asked to leave without having finished our bottle of wine. We weren't allowed to take our wine to the bar area so had to leave it on the table un-finished. I would say that the first sitting is more suitable for families and if you are dining as a couple then you should go for the second sitting as less rushed. Not much to do in the evenings at the complex, unless you've got kids and like Agadoo! But then the lovely harbour town is only a lovely 10 minute walk away and there are lots of lovely little bistros and bars to sit and enjoy the sunsets. The market on a Friday is definitely worth a visit as well! Would also recommend a private transfer from the airport as well as it cuts down the journey from 2 hours to just 35 minutes! All in all a wonderful place, fantastic climate and great food!

We had a great fortnight in puerto Mogan a quiet resort but we like it like that- could have been a bit more busy in the evening after 9 but maybe it is in height of season. We enjoyed our stay - it has all been said -these are excellent apts with great staff but what I feel is not valued so much is the cafe area. We had lunch there on our last day and it was fabulous the house wine was great and extremely reasonable compared with what we had been paying in the more 'up beat' restaurants we were expecting greasy chips cheap burgers etc but I had lasagne it was beautifully presented with a parmesan tuille in large deep bowls with a delish creamy sauce my hubby had a pizza but it was filled with tuna and cheese and as good as the ones in Naples we also had a salad with asparagus, olives and the rest of salad ingredients all fresh and quickly served we only wish we'd had more lunches there. We paid 24 euros for salad, pizza and lasagne with water and a bottle of wine - great.

We have just returned from a great week in this super apartment. We had a room with a super view of the mountains and a little view of the sea at Mogan. Our apartment was very modern and with plenty of storage, hanging area for clothes. Bedroom fab and sleeping area outside very spacious too. Great shower/ large bathroom. We were amazed at the size of the balcony and it had its own shower, loungers and table and chairs. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Overall it was a good experience and we would consider coming again. On the downside though it was very quiet at night. More suited to families with small children but we really didn't mind too much as we just wanted to have a relaxing week.

Lovely big apartment, large balcony with sunbeds, table and chairs and a shower outside. We had a room on the 3rd floor and the sun was there in the morning and stayed all day so was nice to sit by the pool and in the after noon go to the balcony very quiet and private. Would have been disappointed if we had a room on the ground floor, lots of trees block out the sun. Reception staff very helpful and we were given a glass of cava on arrival, a nice touch. We didn't eat in hotel but food looked nice. Spa was brilliant €7 each for the day and a beautiful oriental garden with sun beds which was attached to the spa very quiet. Apartments are just a short walk away from a beautiful harbour with many restaurants very reasonably priced and not a kareoke bar insight perfect. There is a supermarket just outside the hotel food was quite cheap, freshly baked breads. I made breakfast in the apartment every day and bought bread, cold meat and salads for lunch and we ate out at the harbour in the evening. The entertainment in the hotel is a bit naff on the 2 occasions we went back to the hotel early there was only a few people in the bar. This hotel quiet and very relaxing but there is also a children's pool and play area which we avoided. I can't wait to return in November as we left feeling like we had a relaxing holiday, would recommend it

We have recently returned from a weeks holiday here with friends. On arrival we were offered a glass of Cava which we thought was a nice touch. Reception staff were pleasant efficient and helpful. We both had rooms on level eight and finding our way the first time was a bit of an adventure, but after that we were fine. Our apartments was large with a good sized kitchen area that had a table and four chairs. There was only one plug socket in the kitchen and when they give you a toaster and kettle you really could do with a double socket. This I accept is only a minor point though. The bedroom was a good size with two large wardrobes but there was limited draw space. The whole apartment was of a good standard and clean. The wow factor though came with the balcony. The balconies on level eight have a wonderful view and they are huge. There was a table with four chairs, two sun loungers, a shower and you still had enough room for a barn dance !! There are three good sized pools on site and also a play area for children. The whole complex is clean and well maintained. There is also free wifi available. The supermarket opposite the apartments is well stocked and has all you will require for your stay. It is only a short stroll to the beach and town centre along a pedestrian walkway. In the small town of Mogan there is a nice beach which shelves gently into the sea so it is very safe for children. There is a lovely Marina to walk round with plenty of cafes and shops. There are so many good restaurants you are spoiled for choice. We enjoyed eating in El Capuchino which is near the marina and also at La Linterna, which is on the beach front. At La Linterna you can get a large beer for two euros and have a lovely see view and the food is very good. The laughs starts though when the evening rush is over and the waiters start having some fun. I have no problem recommending the Cordial Mogan Valle Apartments and the lovely spot of Puerto Mogan. If you want night life and to party all night though this resort is not for you.

Got to the resort in no time, thanks to the new motorway and its' multitude of tunnels. Check-in was a breeze, straight up to the room. The rooms really are a super size, huge balcony with 2 sunbeds for relaxing in the afternoon, when they get the sun! The hotel is really lovely but is very quiet, the bar in the complex closes at 11. We went next door to the Morgan playa for a late drink and this was great. The location is perfect, only a leisurely 10 min stroll to the town and the beach. Best to ask for a high room if you have no kids, the lower floors are really close to the pools.

We requested an apartment on an upper floor so we could have the sun on the large balcony for the majority of the day. We were given room 910 (top floor) which was lovely. The apartment was spacious and bright with a lovely large balcony. We had the sun from around 11am until 6pm. The cleaners were friendly and efficient, the reception staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke great english which was a bonus. We booked self catering but decided to eat in the hotel restaurant a few times during our stay as it was reasonably priced with lots of options. The head waiter was lovely. I don't need to babble on as everything is pretty much covered in the previous reviews. But I would definitely recommend going to the bbq held at the hotel, the food was lovely! Also, you must try Zona Verde, a small outdoor restaurant located close to the shopping centre on the walkway, it doesn't look that great from the front, but trust me, it's well worth a visit. The meat and fish is all barbequed and is delicious. You will have to make reservations though, but it is well worth the wait. Food was fantastic!! My only, very slight, criticism would be that the signage around the hotel isn't very clear. It is a large hotel with a very complicated lift process to get to the higher floors. Although it is reasonably easy once you've been there a few days, on our first day we were well and truly lost as the signage wasn't exactly helpful. Other than that small negative, we had a fantastic holiday and will definitely be returning. Puerto de Mogan is beautiful!

Helt ok hotell med mycket vacker och välskött trädgård fylld av exotiska buskar och träd. Bäst av allt var miniklubben ledd av underbara Nerea och Franco! De fixade massor med roliga aktiviteter för barnen, allt från spel och pyssel, till roligt minidisco. Även roliga tävlingar för de vuxna anordnades av Franco och Nerea, som frågeutmaningar och tennistävlingar med trevliga priser. Personalen var alla mycket trevliga och tillmötesgående. Vi är väldigt nöjda och barnen längtar redan tillbaka. En annan bra sak, var att der var nära till matbutik (ca 100 m) med ordentligt sortiment. Consejo sobre las habitaciones: Vi bodde i hus I och hade nära till snackbaren och den uppvärmda poolen. Hotellet är väldigt långstr...

Vi var meget positivt overrasket over dette hotellet. Det er jo alltid spennende å se hvordan det ser ut i virkeligheten, og leiligheten skuffet ikke. Vi var to voksne pluss en baby og hadde mer enn god nok plass. Spisebord med plass til fire, rent og innbydende hybelkjøkken hvor vi spiste frokost hver dag. Leiligheten har også en stuedel med sofa, og en stor terrasse. I resepsjonen var de veldig hyggelige og hjalp til med alle spørsmål. Meget serviceinnstilte! Rengjøringen var også bra, de vasker fem av syv dager og bytter håndkle tre av dagene. Uteområdene var flotte og velholdte og bassengene virket veldig rene. Bassenget i sør og det som ligger på taket over resepsjonen er oppvarmede (vil tippe litt over 20 grader). Bassenget i norenden der vi lå, var imidlertid iskaldt og ikke et sted du vil bade med en baby (det var ikke en gang fristende for oss voksne). Vi måtte selv finne ut av hvilke basseng som var oppvarmet, da det ikke sto informasjon om dette. Men de to bassengene som var varme var helt supre. En annen ting som er verdt å merke seg er at solen ikke kommer før ca klokken 12 og går ned igjen ca seks på ettermiddagen. Da anbefales det å ta seg en tur ned til havna eller en gåtur opp lia på sikksakkveien som er avstengt for trafikk. Der kommer nemlig sola en god del tidligere. Til slutt må det nevnes at Puerto de Mogan er en utrolig koselig by, og alle restaurantene vi spiste på hadde god mat. Consejo sobre las habitaciones: Vi lå i nordenden, i 2. etasje og syns det var en veldig fin plassering. Fikk høre av noen andre gje... Ver más recomendaciones relativas a las habitaciones

After having stayed a week at Cordial Mogan Playa, we decided that we wanted to try this hotel as well. A different concept from Mogan Playa, but definitely an excellent place this too. We spent a week on a self catering basis and had a very nice and relaxing time. When we arrived, we were received by Esther Castro at the reception, who to our great surprise spoke Norwegian very well. She told us she had been studying Norwegian by herself for three months only, but was now able to give information and answer our questions in Norwegian. Well done, Esther! She was very service minded and a great help during our stay like the rest of the staff. The appartment was quite spacious with a bedroom, a bathroom and a combined sitting room and kitchen. The terrace was big with a table and four chairs and two sunbeds which were changed to new and very comfortable ones the week we were there. There was also an outdoor shower on the terrace. Hiper Dino supermarket was right outside the hotel, so catering for ourselves was not a problem. If you wish, the hotel also offer halfboard or fullboard. There are three pools and several activities for children. Free wifi in all of the rooms, but sometimes a little difficult to log on. Easy to find parking for the car just outside the hotel. Puerto Mogan is probably the most charming resort on Gran Canaria, so Mogan Valle is a good choice, especially with children. Only a five to ten minutes' walk down to the beach and the harbour where there are lots of shops and restaurants.

For tredje gang var vi på Mogan Valle i forbindelse med jul/nyttår. Vi opplever dette som et veldig hyggelig leilighets-kompleks. Store romslige leiligheter som er forholdsvis godt utstyrt, og store, fine terrasser med solsenger, stoler og bord. Imøtekommende personale både i resepsjon og andre steder. Eneste minus, litt harde senger dessverre. Men som sagt, dette er vår tredje gang og vi kommer mer enn gjerne igjen hit. Trives meget godt her :-) Vi hadde med hele familien og fikk leiligheter ved siden av hverandre, alle var superfornøyde og imponert .

Stayed here for one week 10th to 17th Dec. Requested a high room due to Tripadvisor reports and was not disappointed.The balconies at high level are fantastic very large with table and four chairs and two adjustable loungers.One of the loungers broke and after reporting this to reception was fixed within 4 hours.You do not get the sun in december until around 2 pm but this isnt a problem. The staff were excellent, reception first class and maintenance and cleaning staff were all super efficient and very polite. We were on a Thomas Cook package but had no requirements to use the on site rep apart from the second to last day when we asked about flights, we received a shrug of the shoulders and " not a clue " response ! seemed a shame to drag him away from texting, which he was doing every single time we passed his desk ! We didnt use the pools or restaurants so cannot comment on them. Well stocked supermarket straight opposite but found too late that the Spar supermarkets in the smaller towns en route are much cheaper which brings me to car hire. I use an excellent internet hire company called " Do You Spain " and booked a small car through them, got a good deal for £56 airport pick up. They then emailed me a week prior to the holiday warning me of the local company (Goldcar) fuel policy, return empty which you can never risk or do on a small island. They charge you a super inflated fuel fill up cost of 90 euros plus on top of the hire and can end up costing you nearly 200 euros !!!!! for a Fiesta. Do You Spain switched me to Avis which cost me £68 plus 11 euros for fuel to return full. Please be on your guard for this fiddle. Peurto Mogan itself is beautiful and tranquil with a great selection of superb restaurants and small bars. A couple of jewels are Zona Verde about half way from the hotel to the resort as everyone says dont go by the look from the walkway it has a lovely outside dining area and the food is tremendous especially the meat, yum yum ! I had the beef kebab and my wife the entrecote steak, a good two inches thick cooked to perfection on a wood buring BBQ all for 42 euros with a bottle of wine. At the Beach area we found another gem, 1.50 euros a pint during the day and a great selection of snacks or full meals ( chicken fajittas to die for ) Its called La Linterna although it has Tex Mex on the side sun shade great staff and owner and open kitchen, always a good sign. It about the third from last from the end as you look out to sea from the beach prom. We did try the end bar for day drinks 1.50 euros a pint but got continually pestered by the staff for refills, nice beer so shame really. I am sure you will love both the Cordial Mogan Valle and Peurto Mogan, we did.

This was our third visit to these apartments, but the first with our daughter, son-in-law and their 9 month baby. As before, our holiday was a huge success. The apartments are spacious and well-equipped, although the television channels are rather limited and we were surprised to have to pay to hire a high chair. The balconies are large and have plenty of room for eating out as a whole family and for sunbathing on the loungers. The location is excellent with a view of the mountain opposite (which provides a great opportunity for an early morning walk to watch the sunrise!) and a pleasant pedestrianised walk to the pretty port with its beach, port, canals and masses of bougainvillea. There are a number of restaurants and bars in the port from where you can sit and watch the world go by. However, the food in the buffet bar of the hotel is amazing and the restaurant is very children friendly, as is the whole complex. We were superbly well looked after by head waiter, Eugenio, and waitresses Isabel and Maite. We shall certainly return next year.

My wife and I stopped in these apartments week commencing 10/12/2012. We had room 402 which was on the ground floor near the unheated pool. This turned out to be a good choice as although it did not get much sun, it was very private and only 15 metres from the sunbeds around the pool. There were only a few adults using the sunbeds at any time and although a bit cool the pool was the ideal temp for swimming. The apartments were very well equiped with toaster,kettle,coffee maker, two rings and microwave.There was every utensil you would need and even tea towels and washing up liquid. The tv was dated and a bit awkward to control as there was no remote,but we dont tend to watch tv on holiday. Cleaning was done on 5 days and the maid was very pleasant and super efficient. The free wifi was good and could be accessed anywhere in the complex We have been to Mogan several times but would definately come back to this accommodation. The area has become noticably quieter over the last 2 years but it was ideal for a warm winter holiday.

We are a family with 2 small children who enjoyed 1 week at this hotel. Cava at check in was a pleasant surprise, as well as 2 advent calendars for the kids. Very nice, big rooms with good size fridge, cooking utensils, cutlery and eating area for 4 pax. Huge balcony with shower, table with 4 chairs and 2 sun beds. 3 pools in different areas of the hotel, they were a bit cold but very nice. Nice miniclub for the kids, good play areas which some days included free waffle/ice cream tasting, yum! Free wi-fi of good quality. Relaxed and friendly staff. The hotel is located very close to a HipoDino which is a big supermarket where you can buy everything you need. The lovely Mogan port area is a short walk away, nice kid friendly beach, lots of places to eat.. romantic narrow streets, white houses that are covered in beautiful bougainvillaea flowers!!!

The Cordial Mogan Valle is situated approx 40 minutes drive south east of Grand Canaria airport, located in a mountain valley. This hotel/apartment complex is built on one side facing an almost bare valley wall opposite and tapers gradually up its steep incline. Stayed here with my girlfriend in early November & on arrival we couldn't have been happier. Greeted at reception very warmly by Rick with a glass of Cava & everything went smoothly. We were informed that as part of a hotel promotion we had been upgraded to a 2 bedroom apartment, which was a welcome surprise. On arrival at the room (G714), which was accessed via the lift in reception & past the infinity pool, we were very impressed with what we found. A spacious 2 bed apartment with a well appointed kitchen, 2 bathrooms, living room & large balcony. A short stroll along the pedestrian area brings you to the beach & marina for sunbathing, restaurants & shops. There is a shopping centre opposite the hotel & a hyperdino supermarket which would be the equivalent to Aldi or Lidl, which is perfect for self catered apartments. All in all very relaxing holiday & would definitely return although it was a little quiet with no real night life to speak of but maybe that was just the time of year. On reaching the seaside town of Puerto de Mogan there are plenty of choices for dining. Turn left for a beach view & cheaper but not necessarily poorer quality & right over the Venice like bridge to the marina for more expensive menus. Something to be wary of are the electronics shops. Three of these are run by the same "gentleman" that changes his mind about prices, recommended a camera I wasn't interested in & very limited offers (10 minutes from €300 to €499). If you get a good deal take it with caution as people who operate like this wouldn't this of selling seconds or unfit products. (Rant over) So finally, location & accommodation is excellent, plenty of menu choice from restaurants & perfect place to unwind. Will return & recommend.

Dejligt hotel med mange faciliteter. Mulighed for at booke spa behandlinger. Stort udvalg på morgenmads buffeten. 3 swimmingpools, flere legepladser, bordtennis, pool og tennis. Store værelser med store terasser. Dog er møbler og udstyr på værelserne ved at være slidt. Mange trapper! Vores børn havde stor glæde af børneaktiviteterne (Foregik på spansk/engelsk, men det betyder intet, hun var meget dygtig) Aften underholdningen var af svingende kvalitet. Der er skygge på hotellet om morgen og først på formiddagen, pga. det er bygget op af en bjergvæg. Sol ved poolområdet omkring kl. 11 (I November) Byen har gode restauranter og hyggelig havn. Vi mødte ingen irriterende timeshare sælgere. Vi vil gerne holde ferie der igen.

We have been at the hotel seveal times and enjoy the peaceful place in spite of its size. It`s close to the small, but nice beach. Also you can choose between to pools. The room is nice and clean. We didn´t find the restaurant very interesting, but it is easy to cook in the small kitchen and enjoy the meals in the large terasse. The staff is very kind and helpfull. We hired a car from the airport and went up in the Mountains, where it is easy to find trails to walk, so yes, we will be back.

We have just returned from a weeks break at the Cordial Valle and would really recommend a stay. We had a one bedroom apartment, perfect for our family (two kids). The hotel was clean, welcoming and offered a really relaxing stay. Having Jo been o Gran Canaria before we weren't sure what to expect but the pretty harbour of Mogan didn't disappoint. Great restaurants and. Love safe beach just ten minutes walk from the apartments. Would certainly recommend.

These are lovely well run apartments. We arrived after a long day travelling having had our plane diverted from Leeds to Manchester due to fog the reception staff were really nice and offered us a glass of cava and our daughter a glass of orange juice ( a very nice touch we thought). Having read on Trip Advisor about how finding your room can be difficult due to the size of the complex we didn't find it a problem though it did involve a few lifts and stairs. The apartments are very clean and furnished to a good standard. Clean microwave ,two rings and a fridge with small ice box. Kettle and plenty of cutlery/ glasses etc. The cups are small. There is a tv with CNN / BBC world and Disney channel all free just pick up a remote control from reception. Wi Fi was also free we just asked for the password again at reception. The spa looked nice and the treatments didn't look too expensive. We over looked the infinity pool on the six floor this was wonderful to swim in and quiet most of the time. The sun didn't reach that area until late morning though which was good because at least there isn't a rush to grab a sunbed first thing. We spent lots of time on our balcony with two sunbeds, comfortable chairs and even our own outdoor shower. The lights on the balcony go out at 11 and it is very quiet the best nights sleep i have ever had whilst on holiday. The walk to the marina and beach takes about 10 - 15 mins.There is plenty of room to park hire cars the drive into the resort is spectacular right on the edge of the cliffs.

Room H615 offered great space on the balcony.

Downside no air conditioning , fans only and lights on the balconies go off at around 11pm. However we had a great relaxing holiday in good accommodation. The staff from reception to the maid were attentive and helpful and seemed to go out of their way to offer every assistance. Returned home feeling I was given value for money will be looking to return to soon. The bars and restaurants around the beach and marina offer excellent value should you not wish to make the most of the entertainment on the complex

Hyggelig personale, som er veldig opptatt av å gjøre oppholdet så bra som mulig. 5 min unna er det en butikk med stort utvalg av varer, og har lange åpningstider.

Well appointed large apartments, and once you get used the lift system, (up two floors along the corridor down one floor in our case) plain sailing. Apartments are clean and beds comfortable. Maid service is friendly and efficient. The balconies are huge with 2 loungers and a table and chairs. We stayed in July dirung a 42c heatwave, but because there are no mosquitos, could leave the balcony doors open at night, so didn't find the lack of air-con ( which I find very noisy anyway) a problem. The old harbour is lovely for an evening meal, watching the world go by. Food varies considerably from one establishment to another. If the powers that be are not careful then this lovely area will be spolit by overdevelopment. As it is now it's perfect. Recommend for couples who don't want the nightclub life style

Just returned from a week at Cordial Mogan Valle and thoroughly enjoyed it. My first time in Gran Canaria and I would definitely come back and try and stay here. Fantastic apartments, very spacious with large balcony and very well appointed. Most apartments seem to have a good view of the resort especially those further up the hill. Liked the resort too. Not too busy and had a laid back feel. Felt quite quiet but must have been because of the time of year as it is the shoulder season before the winter season kicks off. We hired a car and had no problem parking outside the apartments. Liked the book/magazine exchange in reception and the welcome drink on arrival. Staff were very helpful. We were self catering so can't comment on the food. All that was missing for us was some air conditioning in the apartments but we were aware you could hire them. We just made do with the fans in the room.

Just returned back from our first visit to gran canaria, Staying at the cordial mogan valle apartments . We were pleasantly surprised when we got into the apartment having everything you could want really to spend a relaxing week in the sun. The balcony was huge and had the sun all afternoon and with table and 4chairs and 2 sunloungers on it . As an added touch it has a shower on the balcony as well to cool you down instead of going down to the pool all the time . The kitchen has microwave, fridge,toaster etc., and quite a large bathroom with shower over the bath and a hairdryer. The bedroom has patio doors and the lounge area has patio doors aswell. No aircon but a celing fan in bedroom and another in the lounge area. Breakfast was good with a large aray of various choices . We were on self catering but you could upgrade to breakfast , or half board and can even pay daily if you you wish. 3 pools on different floors one being an infinity . Also coin operated washer and dryer on site . Shoping center oppersite with various caffes eat in or take away , supermarket , bars etc,. and a duty free shop . Easy walk to the beach , along a paved walkway where there are more shops restaurants and bars along the front promanade . Two sunbeds and a broli on beach cost 9euros . We also found an allyou can eat chinese buffet on the front for 7euros each Good food and very good value . Half chicken and chips at the hotel snack bar was 6. 50 euros , bus station oppersite spar supermarket near beach to take you various places throughout the island , cheap fares. Thomson rep john is very good nothing was too much . ( we stayed from sept 1st to sept 8th 2012 ) and the weather was at least 30 dgrs each day . If you keep your room on past 12 on last day it will cost you 25 euros and if not there is a curtisey room you can have for an hour free , but remember to book it at reception .

Just returned from a week at these fantastic apartments. The holiday was for 4 of us - myself, husband and children aged 9 and 11. I was expecting the transfer from the airport by coach to drag but the 1 hour 20 minutes past quickly with fantastic views over the coast of Gran Canaria. We arrived and were offered complimentary drinks but our room was not ready. We had to wait for an hour but it was worth it. We stayed in J639 which had a huge balcony and views of the sea across roof tops. The apartments were very clean and you get a list of what days it will be cleaned and when towels and bedding will be changed. We asked if the maid come do our room at a specific time each day and it happened. The bathroom was large and the outside shower was perfect for my little one who hopped in each time he got too hot! We didn't eat at the restaurant in the hotel, we tried one night but they were fully booked until 9.15pm which was a little late for us, but this was not a problem as you are a 10minute stroll down to the nearest restaurants by the beach with a wide variety of food choices. We are vegetarian and found the choice plentiful and of good quality. There is a Hyper Dino supermarket right outside the apartments which is great for snacks. It was cheaper to nip to the supermarket than to get drinks and ice creams from the pool bar so we did that (take a small cooler bag with you down to the pool!) We didn't do any of the hotel evening entertainment as our kids prefer to wander along the beach after an evening meal but during the day they joined in the pool games which there thoroughly loved. The pool entertainment was just right- some quick games at 1.30pm and a longer game for kids at 3.00pm but only at the largest pool. I agree about the layout that other people have mentioned and the lifts, but you soon find the few routes that you need and stick to them. We found it easier to use the stairs than the lifts and it was good excersise after all the ice creams but this could be a hassle if you have a push chair or wheel chair. Evenings were quiet. Lights went out on the balconies at 10.50pm and then perfect peace. The rooms are hot without aircon but you quickly adjust and you can leave the patio doors open- it would be hard for anyone to get into the apartment. We would definitely return again. Lovely if you are looking for a calm, peaceful holiday based around the pool, a stroll down to the beach and then out for an evening meal.

these apartments are spacious and well equipped. The location is at the edge of the lovely quiet resort of puerto Mogan which has just enough bars and restaurants to meet your holiday needs. The apartments are clean and the staff are extremely helpful. We were welcomed with a glass of bubbly it really was lovely and the staff rang to book all of the trips that we wanted to go on. There are 3 pools to choose from 2 are more lively with children's facilities the third a little quieter. Hotel does what it can to stop sun bed hogging but unfortunately it does happen. The complex tales a little getting used to as it has several blocks and levels, but the lift will take you pretty much anywhere you want to go. Breakfast was of a very good standard and lots of choice so something for everyone. Would certainly go back.

Just back from a 2 week holiday in these apartments - can highly recommend them - we stayed in one of the upper floors - F838 to be exact - apartments are a good size with a very large balcony - cleaned 5 days a week with towels changed 3 times a week - only down side was lack of an oven and the rather "quirky" lift system - I recommend that you leave the wife, kids and luggage at reception and find your room first when you first arrive as newcomers find the complex layout rather complex if you forgive the pun - we ate out every night so cannot comment on the food in Cordial Valle - there are 3 pools - the childrens entertainers work very hard and the facilities are very good - the town of Mogan itself is very quiet so dont expect to party all night and the shopping is limited - I must recommend 2 restaurants - Casiti Mediterraneo and Zona Verde - they both provide fantastic food and excellent service - note Zona Verde doesnt hand out menus so the choices are relayed by the waitress - you also dont know the prices but it is well worth it - also they do the most amazing Mojitos I have ever tasted with fresh ingredients - dont be put off by the look of the outside of the building as you are seated outside in a more secluded location. With regards Casiti Mediterraneo (it is situated at the marina just past the larger irish pub) I just cannot rate it highly enough - we ate there 3 times and each time they exceeded out expections with regards service, quality of the food and presentation - you also have to try their Sangrias - the Almendra Blanco and Strawberry rose are sublime. I would also recommend the Gran Canaria Divers PADI centre if you are looking to Scuba Dive - they put ny 12 year old son through the PADI Junior open water course and he passed with fly colours

Stayed here early July on a short break. I haven't visited Mogan for about 14 years and was nicely surprised at how much has been built in those years. The place itself has grown hugely, with the addition of all the shops and a new centre which is right across from these apartments, but still remains unspoilt, if that's not a contradiction. On arrival we were greeted with a glass of sparkling wine, a very nice touch and a really easy, smooth check in. The apartment was big with a large balcony, clean, and very comfortable would benefit from AC as the fans can be quite noisy. Towels changed regularly, Didn't use the restaurant so can't comment on the food. The staff were all quite pleasant. The only down side was that despite all the signs to the contrary it was really difficult to get a sunbed by any of the pools because they were covered in towels very early in the morning which meant we spent most of our time either at the beach or on our balcony, but that suited us. Perfect break if you want to relax.

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children who stayed at the Cordial Mogan Valle with friends (another family of 4) between 23rd July and 06th August 2012. In advance I emailed a request of the top floor with 2 apartments near to each other. They emailed back to say they couldn't guarantee my request, but indeed we got the top floor....and what a beautiful view of the mountains! The apartments are clean and spacious, although the sofabeds are uncomfortable so in hindsight would book earlier next time to get a 2 bed apt. It is very hot without air con. and does take some getting used to the noise of the ceiling fans (but you do after a few days), but these are the only negatives for our family! It is a quiet, peaceful resort (the lifts are mastered within days and really not that bad - the apartments afterall are built into a mountain side!) with fantastic scenery and noiseproof rooms! The beach is so family friendly with lovely soft sand, reasonably priced sunbeds/parasols (£3 euros each) and shallow water perfect for children to paddle in safely with no crashing waves due to it being a sheltered cove (but not a small cove like the tiny one's found in menorca) There is a large choice of restaurants, reasonably priced (we spent alot less money than we thought we would), although disappointed with the tapas available and this was the one meal we were looking forward to. Turn right at the beach to find restaurants overlooking the dock - beautiful! (The beach and restaurants are a good 10-15 min walk away, but all on a level, mainly pedestrianised, walkway, and the bonus was not putting on any weight this holiday!) We would absolutely go back (albeit to a 2 bed apartment this time and hope that they install air con (if not, we would still go back as this is a little price to pay for such a traditional port that is so family friendly with lovely pools and the most amazing scenery).

We stayed at Cordial Mogan Valle for a week which was plenty for us as there isnt a great deal to do here. Perfect if you only want to relax and bathe by the pool or down at the local beach. This was a mystery holiday for me organised by my partner and after a 2 1/2 hour transfer from the airport I wasnt impressed so far, but arriving at the hotel quickly made up for the wait. The first impressions were great. A very modern presented lobby. Swish. A refreshing drink on arrival was a nice touch too and very much needed. Our room was on the second floor and easy for us to find. Native flowers growing over the open corridor was beautiful and finished it off nicely. The rooms were large with high ceilings, beautiful decor and very modern. Our room was very clean and we were happy with what we got. We couldnt fault it at all. The balcony was very big with two sunbeds, a table and chairs and an outside shower (and a view of the pool). Both rooms had a ceiling fan with adjustable speed settings. It was possible to hire an air conditioning unit from reception but we didnt need this as the fans were enough to keep the room cool. The bedroom has a safe in the wardrobe which we hired for 14 euros for the week, reccomended just for peace of mind. Breakfast was (8am-10.30am) buffet with plenty of choice for everyone. We ate like kings every morning. Superb. The hotel has 3 swimming pools. All of which a nice size. Plenty of sunbeds but could do with some more umbrellas as there wasnt enough to go round. We timed the walk down to the local beach, beautiful harbour and shops which took 12-15 minutes from the front of the hotel. That was at normal pace. On the way you pass a supermarket (pretty much opposite the hotel) and an up and coming shopping center. At the moment theres only a few shops on the ground floor. Upstairs is 'Taj', an indian restaurant. Recommended places to eat at are La Cicala (an Italian) which is right opposite the beach. Zoo on the way to the harbour and Taj which is the Indian restaurant opposite the hotel. Mogan had 2 markets while we were there, one on the friday which is on the walk down to the beach and all the way round the harbour. The market on the Sunday was a handcraft market which we never went to. At the end of the harbour is a yellow submarine which takes you out of the harbour and emerses under water to view the fish. This is very popular and you need to book early. We done this through our hotel reception. Puerto Rico is a couple of bays from Mogan and we got the local bus there in the morning which cost us 1.55 euros each and took 17 minutes to get there. The bay before it (Amadores, 10mins from Mogan) looked amazing with crystal clear water and a few shops along the beach, unfortunately we didnt have time to go there but another family from our hotel went for the day. Overall a good stay, this town is still very up and coming. The staff were great and very helpful especially Simone on reception. She was our hero for the holiday and helped us with all our needs and queries. One member of staff at breakfast was a funny guy too and enjoyed a laugh with everyone. Great entertainment of an evening too.

Después de leer todas las opiniones sobre estos apartamentos, decidí ir con mi marido y mis dos hijos durante 8 días a finales de junio. Una palabra: estancia perfecta. Los apartamentos están fenomenal, la terraza impresionante, la limpieza muy buena y la comida increíble (salvo el café) aunque yo fui en media pensión. Los peor: está a casi una hora del aeropuerto y con una carretera de curvas no apta para cardíacos, el tema del aire acondicionado que efectivamente como llegues con calima (como me pasó a mí) ya puedes ir pidiendo el aire portátil que tienen porque sino es imposible dormir, el tema de las hamacas que siempre estaban llenas y a pesar de que tienen tres piscinas en todas a cierta hora era imposible encontrar sitio, el lío que te haces con el plano cuando llegas buscando tu apartamento (a los pocos días ya te conoces hasta los atajos) Lo mejor: la tranquilidad de la zona perfecta para familias con niños, la terraza del apartamento donde hacíamos la cena y se estaba de muerte, la amabilidad y atención de todo el personal, la cercanía a la playa (pequeña, muy tranquila y con muy poca gente), la zona de juegos para los niños, la comida super abundante y muy buena,... Del spa no puedo opinar porque no lo utilicé. En resumen muy, muy, muy recomendable. Mucho mejor que muchos 4* e incluso 5* en los que he estado.

Spent 11 nights at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was great value for the quality of the accommodation and the resort as a whole. It is a large resort with alot of corridors and lifts, we were on the third floor which was good as it only required one lift and you were on the same floor as the restaurant, lounge and play area. We were self catering and only ate one night in the hotel to try it out; which was nice but not every night of my stay as it would have got quite samey. Rooms were very comfortable with all the cutlery and dishes you would need to create simple holiday food. Beds were comfortable, though if there were adults or teenage children sleeping on the bed settee, they may find the mattresses thin and need toppers, which i understand are available. We were there at a very busy period, during a local holiday where plenty of Spainiards come to the complex, which is good, because if the locals use it - though this created the difficulty round all the pools that there were no sun loungers and parasols available - though after complaining more were made available but not much space to put them in!! The village itself still retains some authenticity which is really nice. Plenty of restaurants round the marina and beach, which is a 15 minute walk from the hotel. Our party of 4 (2adults and 2 kids) were averaging around 55euros a night eating out. This is definitely somewhere that as a family I would not hesitate to return, if you want a quite, restful holiday. this is not a place where the bars remain open late and you can party into the small hours!

Etter 14 dager så er min familie på 5 stk veldig fornøyde. Når vi ankom opprette de oss til to stk superior-rom med havutsikt og frokost inkl. Det var jo flott. Rent og pent. Ikke langt å gå til sentrum og den flotte stranden. Mange butikker og mange bra spisesteder. Stille ca 23. Passet oss utmerket. Eneste å utsette er litt trange bassenområder og lite antall solsenger. Men totalt så kan dette stedet anbefales. Vi kommer tilbake hit.

lovely apartments, large balcony & very modern.No air conditioning and fans can be a bit noisy especially at night as i am a light sleeper' also there was a heat wave while we were there so we had to leave patio doors open at night as it was so hot. The lift system is a bit tricky but after a few days you get used to it. Super market right across the road.Very scenic resort but extremely quiet. My hasband & i are in our 30's & look forward to going out at night for a meal and a few drinks.I knew it was a quiet resort but when you are having a drink at 10 o clock at night and they are bringing in the chairs around you it wouldnt encourage you to even stay out till 11. You have to go to puerto rico if you want any night life.Irish bars / restaurants are not even open on a sunday so you would to go to puerto rico to watch GAA. If you want a complete rest no night life this the resort for you and the are apartments are lovely & very good value.

Had a lovely week here. Huge balcony made it as you can sunbathe in privacy and cool off in the outdoor shower. High quality room fittings and kitchen. Self catering next time. Just had breakfast this time and it was good. Pleasant walk to village each night with loads of restaurants and bars. Pretty town. Used the infinity pool every morning for my execise swim and also went to the gym every day. Only slight criticism is the hard red plastic chairs in the bar and it was lacking in atmosphere but we nearly always drink in the town. Okay for smaller kids not for tweens and teens. Will go back and I don't often say that. Some people moaned about getting lost going to their rooms but you know your way around after a day.

Hotellet , og beliggenheten er ypperlig som feriested hvis man ønsker et stille og rolig opphold uten bråk og mye støy.Byen Puerto Mogan er en liten perle i seg selv med sine vakre hus som er omslynget av like vakre planter i poraler og gater. Hvis man ønsker å bevege seg til fots så er det utmerket å ta turen opp på fjellet langs anleggsveien opp til vannreservoaret og videre bakover mot en bananplantasje ca. 6 km unna.

This is our second time here and unusually for us we are coming back again next year, last year we had breakfast included which was good but decided to just go self catering this time and glad we did! The apartments are spacious and very clean, one of the big plus points for us is the huge balcony, you have your own two sun loungers and a table with four chairs.No need to go anywhere!! The kitchen equipment whilst not extensive is perfectly adequate and we had breakfast and lunch in the apartment going out for evening meals. There is a supermarket opposite the apartments and a spar in town which has a good deli and bread selection. The maid was friendly and kept the apartment spotless. There is a lounge area - writing the review from the sofa at the moment!! And a tv which we have only used to catch up on the news so not sure what the selection of channels are like, we spend most of our time on the balcony! There isn't air conditioning which isn't a problem in the early year not sure how it would be when really hot but the ceiling fans in the front room and bedroom are very effective. We like the fact its a short,5-10 min walk to town as it means the apartments are quiet at night, never had one nights disturbed sleep! I would recommend if you get a late flight in the Indian opposite do take aways and do not miss a meal in Zona Verde outstanding! All the staff we have met here have been helpful and polite and yep we will be coming back! If you want pure relaxation, nice resturants and a peaceful holiday this is the place for you!

We have just returned from the Cordial Valle apartments 25th April 2012. I will try and be concise with my/our comments. Very clean, spacious, comfortable, quiet, private etc etc. Having read previous reviews I went with the thought that maybe they were too complimentry, but NO they are not! my husband and I like self catering and we have been to many places around Europe but these are far the best we have have stayed in. The staff were all very pleasant and our cleaner Esther did a brilliant job in our very spacious accommodation ( even swept our very large balcony railings and moved furniture to firstly hoover then wash the floor). The staff in the breakfast room worked efficiently and with humour. My husband who has never taken to filling in accommodation questionaires before, did so with great pleasure in giving nothing but positve comments. We had never been to Gran Canaria before WE WILL BE BACK . The resort is lovely and we didnt get pestered to go into the plentiful and lovely restaurants of which we dined in each of night we were there. I have only been back 24 hours but have already told my colleagues about the place and passed on to the details

First trip to Gran Canaria and would definitely return to these apartments. I am very fussy and yet was very pleasantly surprised. I agree evening entertainment poor but you can always just have a drink in the bar, have drinks on your own very large balcony or walk to the beautiful harbour. Plenty of places to eat in the harbour, special mention to Jez @ Denneys Irish restaurant where the food and service was so great we ate there every night except 1 when they were shut! didn't find the area too expensive as others did, food for 4 with drinks, 2 courses about 62 euros. Kids thoughly enjoyed thieir first trip on a plane and as said planning to return with friends next year.

For me first time on canarian islands. Very nice experience and exactly what we were looking for (family with 2 small children 3.5y and 20 months). Puerto de mogan is by far the nicest place we saw on gran canaria. Sure it's focused on tourism but the village keeps some authenticity and calm. Big difference with the "tourist traps" puerto rico and playa del ingles. Good hotel with nice pools, playgrounds for children and comfortable and spacious apartments. We had room 445 with 2 separate bedrooms. This was at the far end of the hotel so couple of minutes walk to reception and restaurant but also peace and quiet and no noise from the rest of the hotel. We loved the apartment, especially the big terrace were we spent our evening reading with a nice glass of red wine while kids were sleeping. Main reason why I give 4 and not 5/5 was the food. The food was ok but not super, typical buffet style breakfast and diner. Everything we needed and we expected for this kind of hotel but I would need some more special culinary experiences to give a 5/5. Staff was very friendly and helpful, especially in the restaurant. We will certainly consider coming back, even if we normally never go to the same place twice.

It was our second visit to Puerto Mogan and this hotel. We had a two-room apartment with balcony. And we´d like to go back. Why? The apartment had a large balcony with deckchairs,chairs and table. A lovely place where you could relax in the sun, eat breakfast in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. A well-equipped kitchen, a large bed and clean linen and rooms.Enough hot water! We can´t eveluate the food, there are too many good restaurants in P.M, but we had paella at the bar once. We´ve tasted better. Service and friendliness at the reception: Very good.We rented a car, and it was arranged by the reception. We´ll return.

Underbart ställe, speciellt om du reser med lite yngre barn. Här finns allt från miniklubb, lekplatser och minidisco.Trevlig och hjälpsam personal och bra buffet resturang med god variation för både oss vuxna och barnen. Det bästa med rummen var nog den enorma altanen.Om jag ska klaga på något skulle det vara de hårda sängarna, annars var allt toppen. Vi trivdes otroligt bra och skulle inte tveka en sekund på att åka tillbaka!

This is the 4th time that I have stayed here which suggests how much I love it! We were in the south of the building this year (we were in the Apartments) and I don't think we got as much sun as the north of the building but other than that, perfecto!! The manager held a cocktail night on the Tuesday evening which was great, it would be good for the bar area to fe more popular and busy? But no complaints, love these apartments and Puerto de Mogan.

Stayed Feb half term at these apartments and on first impression was really pleased with our choice, the drive from the airport to Puerto Mogan was enjoyable. Had a few minor issues with our room, ie room wasnt made up and then the sofa bed had not been left any bedding but reception resolved the issues as soon as we brought it to their attention, overall we felt the reception staff were very professional and helpful during our stay. We had booked a two bed apartment but were given 2 x one bed next too each other which we were happy with, they were on the 5th floor (easy enough to find) with the large balconys which was lovely and sunny in the afternoon, often sat on the balcony around 5 o clock with a glass of wine until the sun went down, lovely views of the mountains, great chill out. Only little quibble, we would have liked a double bed but had two twins pushed together and my husband said his bed was quite lumpy, mine wasn't so bad, maybe the mattress needed replacing. The breakfasts were very good, choice of everything from fresh breads and eggs to the usual, the breakfast staff were very good/efficient. The walk to the top of the mountain opposite the apartments is a great walk with amazing views over Puerto Mogan, you could even jog up their if you are feeling really fit. We ate out most evenings in Puerto Mogan but with four teenages this was quite expensive, unless you go for the cheaper options like Pasta, prices similar to the UK, I guess you just don't get cheap meals out much in Europe anymore. We bought food for lunch and wine from the supermarket we preferred the Spa rather than the Hippo Dino, look out for the cheap wine around 1.70 Euro in Spa which is actually not bad wine at all, so at least you can have a few glasses before you venture out as you could pay up to 6 Euros for a large glass of wine in some restaurants. I guess if you are just a couple its okay but with 6 of us it was costly. Overall we felt the apartments and the public area's were nice, the location is fab, perfect break for a week with some nice warm sunshine, having read reviews on trip advisor we felt that these apartments were exactly what we were expecting or perhaps even better.

We stayed here on a B&B basis the first two weeks in February 2012 and would recommend it wholeheartedly, echoing many of the points made in Jonty58's review. It is particularly suitable for those with children (we are "child-free"!), since the restaurant staff made a big fuss of kids and there seemed to be plenty of amusements and facilities for them. (There were a great many children in the restaurant, from babes in arms to teenagers.) We found all staff very friendly, helpful, courteous and efficient. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the balcony was very large. The apartments run along the eastern side of the valley, below the road which runs into Puerto de Mogan along high cliffs. Be aware that at this time of year, rooms in the northern part of the complex did not get any sun until 2pm-ish and it was gone by 5.30pm. We had anticipated sitting on the balcony morning and evening, but out of the sun it was pretty chilly. Other reviewers made the point that there was no air conditioning, but this was not a problem for us - the temperature of our rooms was fine. The restaurant was especially well managed and the buffet breakfasts were wonderful; there could hardly have been more choice of cooked and cold meats, fishes, cheeses, pancakes, breads, pastries, jams, yoghurts, fruits and cereals, including eggs freshly made to order and a glass of cava every day. For those who were self catering, there was an option to pay for all or any meals, or shop at the well-stocked Hiper Dino supermarket a few minutes' walk away. On our third day, we received a phone call from reception, who ran through a questionnaire on everything including the staff, environs, room, food. In the second week, an independently conducted written questionnaire asked more detailed questions on similar issues, and we were given a final questionnaire at the end of the holiday. There seemed no doubt that they were keen to ensure our opinions were made known! There was a lovely wide pedestrian-only pavement with a fish motif running from the harbour past the Cordial Mogan Playa Hotel next door and the Cordial apartments for about a mile. It took us 20 minutes to walk to the harbour (about 15 to the beach) from our rooms at the far end of the apartment complex. There were many restaurants at the beach and harbour, and a small number en route, including the wonderful Los Guyares at the hotel next door and the lovely Zona Verde a little further away. We had a lovely time here and would definitely stay at the apartments again.

We stayed at the Mogan Valle for 12 nights on a B&B basis from late Jan to Feb 2012. We loved it and if the option was there would give it 4.5 out of 5 then that's how we'd have scored it. Plus points were the friendly, helpful, courteous and humourous staff who could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was tremendous; 3 nice pools and the whole place was kept spotless. We stayed in room H501 at the far north side. This was great but out of range of the free wi-fi which they say covers the whole site but does not, but easily picked up in the more central areas. Some contributors have said that the apartments need their decor refreshed and I can see that to an extent - ours was fine although as they were built some 4 or 5 years ago they are coming up to their first redecoration and we saw some being re-painted between re-lets. The design - built into the side of the mountain - terraced down to give maximum sunlight to the balconies and pools is fascinating. The network of stairs and lifts makes the building seem like an enormous game of snakes and ladders. Probably for ease of access the second floor is probably the simplest to access. Two single beds together can work as a double but there was no option to have double sized bed linen - which we have had elsewhere and seems something that this hotel could offer. It's a 1 minute walk along a lovely level paved boulevard to the beach, marina, restaurants etc. We found this a very enjoyable stroll and a major plus point was the supermarket (Hiper Dino) being so close and so no real distance at all to carry shopping. If we return to Puerto Mogan (which is lovely) we would be happy to stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here on a week-long break in February. We stayed in a one-bedroom apartment and chose to include breakfast. The apartment itself was lovely, modern decor and a spacious balcony. The view was mostly of the new shopping centre opposite although if we looked to the far left we could see the sea. The only criticism I would have of the apartment was that the cooking facilities were limited. There was no oven, just a two-ring hob and a microwave. The location is as good as it could be for an apartment complex this size. I say this because the port of Mogan is an old fishing village and the area near the beach is taken up with shops and restaurants. The hotel is therefore a pleasant short stroll from the beach and port. The breakfast was excellent, lots of different choices of fresh fruit, breads, omelettes, cold meats, cheese etc and would fill you up for the best part of the day. There are three pools but I only used one and found it lovely, no fighting for a space and the astro-turf around the pool meant no burnt feet either which can be a problem in the Canaries. The staff here were some of the friendliest and most helpful we have encountered and we have travelled to many holiday resorts. They are very keen to please and to make sure we were enjoying our stay. This, coupled with the fact that we now feel, having stayed three times in Gran Canaria, that Puerto de Mogan is the best resort, means that we are very likely to return.

My husband and I stayed here a week in mid-January, found the buffet meals excellent and the room very adequate. The pools were a bit cool for swimming, but of many activites possible, I enjoyed the Spanish lesson given by Roberto of the Animation Team. The 500 metre walk to the town for meals in one of the many harbour-side restaurants is pleasant but might become samey. If one can get to the centre of the island, Roque Nublo is a must.

As we travelled couple in their 50s we had stayed in private apartments in Puerto Mogan previously but were unable to use them on our recent visit and decided to try the Cordial Mogan apartments. We stayed on the 9th floor with a large terrace with sunbeds, shower and dining table in a one bed apt. It was very pleasant. The reception informed us of the 'route' to our apt via 4 lifts and although it seemed horrendous there were no waits and easypeasy after the first day!Met with a glass of bubbly and welcomed even after the Christmas rush and altogether very happy with room cleaning, no noise from other apts with kids. Never ate there because there are more than enough lovely restaurants in PM to waste time in a hotel!

Stayed here over New Year week. Was initialy on ground floor by pool, but asked for shift to higher level which we got after 2 days (fully booked). Second room much better loads of room on balcony area. Rooms were clean and well kitted out. Could have done with extra bedding for fold out bed which my son used as it was coldish at night. This was our only complaint. Staff were helpful and courtious at all times. Location is a 10 minute walk from beach / town centre, but has all shops you need just outside complex. Didn't eat here as we went out to try different places. Best place by a mile is Zona Verde just down the road from appartments. Found Puerto Mogan to be overpriced for food and drink, but this would not stop me from going back there. No lager louts, didn't see one person rolling around drunk in the whole time we were there. Probably because there wasn't too many of us British there, mainly queue jumping Germans and scandinavians, dutch and italians Great place to bring family, highlight was the Submarine trip - 73 Euros for 2 adults and 1 child.

Altid smilende og imødekommende personale. Overdådig morgenmad med alt fra rugbrød til bacon & eggs. Hiper Dino indkøb lige udenfor hotellet samt indkøbscenter med mindre udvalg. Godt udbud af restaurenter omkring havnen til fornuftige priser.

If you're looking for a super nice apartment hotel in the beautiful and tranquil fishing village / marina of Puerto de Mogan, this is the place. The apartments are very large, modern and tastefully decorated. Our balcony was huge with sun beds, tables and chairs and a shower. Beautiful views over the valley. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel's services include also breakfast buffet, spa / wellness, tennis courts, three pools, etc. Can only recommend this hotel.

When you arrive at your holiday destination to find out that not only has your luggage not managed to make the flight with you, it also won't arrive for four days, you begin to worry whether your holiday is doomed! However, caring staff, spacious and clean accommodation certainly went a long way to to easing our concerns. The staff were attentive and friendly from reception to the cleaners. With four swimming pools there were always plenty of sunbeds available. The rooms were adequately equipped for self catering, and the balcony was surprisingly roomy. The apartment complex is a bit of a maze and takes a while to become orientated. The apartments are good value for money but any 'extras' (for example, an iron) are charged for. The beach and harbour in Puerto Mogan are about a ten minute walk away and is ideal for families as the water is lovely and calm thanks to the harbour protection. Eating out can be expensive but if you want something a bit more interesting there are some good restaurants, try La Bodeguilla Juanana and La Caracola. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the apartments and would recommend them to anyone seeking a friendly,charming resort, even without your luggage.

Book-in was very quick, staff efficient and we were given a glass of cava too. I had e-mailed a few weeks prior to going to request apartment i343 [as per a reviewer's recommendation] and were given this apartment. It was very clean and had basic cooking facilities. I noticed the back rests on both the sunbeds on our balcony were damaged and maintenance came up straight away to fix them. Very spacious accommodation, cleaned to a high standard five times weekly, towels changed three times per week, beds comfy. The supermarket is a stone's throw away and sells everything you need. The walk to the beach/marina area [about 15 minutes] was pleasant and on the flat. Many nice restaurants to choose from there, our particular favourites being The Irish Tavern, The Zoo Bar [both good value] and La Brushchetta. The downsides: It could be difficult to find your apartment [you are given a map] and there is nobody available to help with luggage. There are many lifts and steps and it can be confusing. Also there are no cushions on the sunbeds both by the pool and on the balconies and these are not very comfortable. If these few things could be put right I would give it 5 stars. It should also be borne in mind that this is a family complex so there are lots of young children and it can be noisy, depending upon where you are situated. There was a manager's cocktail party whilst we were there and, on my birthday, a bottle of wine was sent to our apartment, a nice touch. All in all, a lovely holiday and I would go there again.

Vi var 2 uker på ferie i puerto de mogan og er kjempefornøyd. VI hadde med en liten gutt på 1 år som storkoste seg i barnebassenget og på stranden. Vi likte hotellet godt og synes det var god service generelt. Frokosten var kjempegod, middagen var litt mer varierende. Store balkonger med ettermiddagssol, kjempegreit for lillegutt å leke der ute også. Flott spa-avdeling som vi dessverre ikke benyttet oss av, men brukte treningsrommet som er greit utstyrt, men litt lite. VI gikk "fjelltur" med lillegutt i bæresele på en høyde rett ved hotellet. Ellers er det et supermarked rett over veien for hotellet, evt en spar butikk på vei til stranden/sentrum. Mange koselige restauranter i sentrum. Noe slitasje på hotellrommet, men ellers er det lite å klage på. FInt bassengområde og rolige omgivelser. Vil trekke fram ekstra god service i buffeten, kan trygt anbefale dette hotellet :)

Just returned from these apartments after a 1 week stay and our first visit to Mogan. We were given room I626, located just above the snack bar which we had no problems navigating too, unlike others have mentioned. As plenty has been said already about the facilities here there is no need for me repeat everything, except to say we had a very enjoyable stay and will definitely consider these apartments in the future as they ticked all the boxes. The harbour area of Mogan is extremely pretty and we had some wonderful meals in the restaurants around the square. As we're not looking for late night entertainment or discos etc we felt this easy going place was perfect for a relaxing holiday. There is a more upmarket feel here than other resorts on the island which is reflected in the price but worth it in our opinion as you get what you pay for!! We can't wait to return.

Just returned from a week at the Cordial Mogan Valle apartments, this is the first year we opted for self catering as we have a fussy 3 year old. These apartments are really well equipped for pretty much everything you need. The only thing we didn't have was an oven but the microwave and hob catered well for our needs for a week. The supermarkets worked out pretty similar to the UK in price and you could pick up most things the same as in the UK. We ate out once in a restaurant on the front of the harbour, our aim was to eat out every night and just do lunch and breakfast in our room but after sampling the food we decided to cook in every night, we ordered a soft drink, one beer, 3 tapas dishes and a pizza, it came to 44 euro's and the food was horrible! Never tried the restaurant in the hotel so cannot comment on that. The entertainment day and night was good, Karolina was excellent doing the games in the day (good fun to break up sitting by the pool for 5mins!) and our daughter loved to dance with her at the kids mini disco every evening. We had a room on the 2nd floor so never got confused finiding our room and it was easy to get to the pool or restaurant plus we had a good sized balcony too. The fans kept the room at a more even temperature, the first 2 nights we were there I was ready to hire the aircon unit but after that we got used to the temperature and it seemed normal to us. The harbour was beautiful and beach also lovely, about a 10min walk, we used to walk down first thing in the morning so it was not so unbearable in the heat. Good for a family break with smaller children.

The rep said when we arrive these are some of the best equiped apartments around, and he was probably right. Kettle, toaster with croissant rack, microwave, two ring cooker and coffee machine. Pretty good. Clean and modernly decorated and the safe is reasonably priced for the week. Mogan is very nice, quiet but nice. It is a popular trip to come to the place, and the market on friday is ok. So far so good. Whilst the supermarket (across the road from reception) is similar prices to UK (sorry if you aren't UK - I go by what I know) but eating out, wow. Seriously expensive. Expect to spend main prices for a starter. E.g. meal out and one drink 50 euros. With wine, two courses, 70 euros. There are a lot of shops empty in the place, so I guess its down on numbers - so restaurants are trying to make the same money from less people. At the end of the day, you are a captive audience. Yes you can cook in your room, but who does. We made lunch to save money, and went out each night. Walk to the port area in 15 mins at a slow stroll pace half if you walk quick, which is a nice distance So what did I take away. Nice place, nice apartment but seriously expensive to eat out. I'd get half board in the hotel next door (which is nicer - search for Cordial Mogan - same complex just not apartments) or take lots of money. Do eat one night next door- it looks expensive but its not that different to town, and it good.

Just back from 2weeks in the Morgan Valle & can honestly say it has been 1 of the most relaxing breaks we have ever had. It was also our 1st without the kids who are grown up. I requested high room (936)which is what we were allocated views were excellent, mind it did take a couple of days to get our head round the many lifts but once we had mastered it there was no problems. All staff were friendly & willing to assist. Towels were changed 5days per week & beds twice a week which we thought was really good. I know some people have complained twice is not enough but hey I don't change my own bedding at home twice a week!! The balconies were massive compared to the 4star plus sister hotel & a real haven for privacy especially being on the top floor. We did see 1 dead cockroach but really were surprised there were not any more due to this being a hot Island. We got notices twice whilst there advising to shut balcony doors & windows between 4-7am as they were using pesticides so maybe this is why there is not many creepy crawlies. The pools were clean & we did not seem to have any trouble finding any sunbeds usually late morning. There were loads of signs stating do not reserve sunbeds but you still had some sad people putting towels out 1st thing. I tried the spa & had a reflexology treatment. I thought I would treat myself & I was not disappointed was a great relaxation treatment & would recommend if you wanted to spoil yourself. Did not try the bar or entertainment so can not comment on these. The weather was red hot some of the locals reckoned it was in the 40s a couple of days we were there & we were worried about the lack of AC but I don't know if we were used to the heat but both celling fans & leaving doors open all night did us fine which was great as didn't really want to spend an extra 120euros on a portable AC machine. We went self catering but there was a special offer on consisting of 4 breakfast & evening meal for 80euros per person. I would not normally use this facility but due to the heat & the fact we could not be bothered to walk down to the harbour each day I decided to try it. The buffet style restaurant catered for all dietary requirements & chefs cooked fresh meat & fish to order we certainly enjoyed what was on offer but the 4days were enough don't think we could have gone half board for full 2weeks, as we do like to sample the local cuisine & we were not disappointed we tried several of the restaurants & could not fault any of them. This is really the place for a relaxing break local shops were fine but they all seem to sell the same tat as in any other areas & apart from cigarettes we didn't think there was any bargains to be had. It is supposed to be duty free Island but I could buy my perfumes cheaper at home. On the whole it was well worth the cost of the holiday & would proberly agree that maybe 4star pushing it but 3star plus definitely as we have paid a lot more for other holidays & ended up in a lot worse places. Would go back & recommend for the relation & getting away from the hustle & bustle.

I personally would go back to this resort but would hire an Air Con unit for 60 euro. Staff where very friendly and people staying here where all nice folks. Pools where nice and spacious and all in good condition. Overall a pleasant stay that's left me relaxed to go back to work!!

between the cockroaches and the smell of sewerage from drains i dont know which was worse. balconies were not all the same size but luckily we got a rather large one. room service was hit and miss till we contacted reception. resort makes much of the peace and quiet - lights out at 11. the recession was definitly affecting the town but prices still cheaper than in ireland. glad to have a holiday this year so would endure the little irritations but i agree with westendsweetie about the barman. no wonder the place was dead. had great time as i can make my own holiday atmosthphere if u can't stay well clear.

We have just returned from a week at the Cordial Mogan Valle- professional couple in our late 30's, 7 year old and 4 year old. The resort is lovely and the apartments as I expected. On arrival (9.30 pm) I was initially dissapointed as we were not greeted with cava as other reviewers had been. The first impression of the apartment was bad with the smell of the previous occupants smoke evident...The decor was pleasant and the rooms spacious. The furniture and soft furnishings while of a good quality and style were slightly grubby- a lovely 60's style cream swivel chair had grubby arms from dozens of sweaty hands rubbing over many stays...I'm always suspicious of bed-throws abroad and immediately stowed then in the wardrobe (on top of several warm fleecy blankets??!!) Despite my initial concerns the apartment was lovely and was kept clean. I saw 1 (dead) cockroach on the complex and a further 4 around the resort and believe me, I looked for them!! The pool area that we used was accessed by your room key so no interlopers were possible. The whole pool area was spotless and disinfected every day, A few broken sunbeds were the only issue. The lady at the pool bar was a star and put up with my daughter and her little friend constantly hanging around her! She cheerfully chatted to them and never seemed put out. Our apartment was 916, above the infinity pool. We left the main pool every day at 6pm and walked past the infinity pool to get to our room. It was deserted by this time save for a few couples generally reading / chilling out. We got ready, had drinks on the balcony and went out to dinner, passing the by now deserted infinty pool. We were home every night between 10pm and 11pm...not a soul near the infinity pool, not a sound! We catered for ourselves for breakfast and lunch from the well equiped hiper-dino (top-tip- try the 'Castel Llord' cava 2.14 euros and as nice as the 25 euro wines we were paying for at night!) We ate out every night and didn't have a bad meal. Best was La Bruchetta were the welcoming staff (in partcular Tarnya) kept the children happy while waiting for dinner, feeding the fish and making glasses out of straws! We also liked Bodeguilla (across the square from Dehennys) but made the mistake of letting the waiter choose our wine...35 euros later...! Dehennys was the only slight dissapointment given that so many previous reviewers have raved about it...as foodies we found the welcome and quality of food lacking. Average dinner cost 100 euros- e.g. olives and bread, lobster linguine, seabass, seabream (from specials board), child's lasagne, 2 soft drinks and wine. Much cheaper options and full children's menus were available. The nice thing about this lovely resort is the feeling that just because you have children you don't have to sack your tastes and head off to a 'chips with everything' resort. Puerto de Mogan kept us all happy! Silence fell at 11pm which for us was perfect but options were available. Not a neon sign or Brit pub in sight! I would recommend the little waterpark at Taurito but it is shabby in places...Large areas of pool tiles are broken I found to my cost- I gashed open the sole of my foot- luckily this was on out penultimate day as it would have spoiled the holiday otherwise. We will be back (but with a 2 bed apartment, the one bed option with 4 staying put the living room out of action and the sofa bed was uncomfortable) either to the Valle or the next door Playa. We will be keeping this place secret and hope that commercialisation doesn't spoil it in time.

Just returned (Aug 2011) after two weeks with our 10 & 7 year old, and another family with 3 kids. Apartments were generally as most other reviews say, large, clean, bright, great balconies (but try to avoid the ground floor - not very private, backing right on to the pool). They are still quite new, perhaps in a few years they may start to look a bit tatty. The ceiling fans were pretty useless though, we kept all our balcony doors open all night but it was pretty hot (it is August though). The staff I thought were really quite helpful and friendly, there are two main pools serving the different ends of the apartments and a smallish infinity pool in the middle. Unfortunately we generally had to start reserving sun loungers at about 8 - 9am because we were a large party of 9 and wanted to stay together. That said there was never really a total lack of beds, it's more the size of the area around the pools are quite tight but generally you will always find a reasonable space. Certainly seen a lot worse in other places. Cockroaches? - Trust me these apartments do not have a cockroach "problem" like other reviews say. This is a hot climate, where just like everywhere else cockroaches are present. We saw the odd one mainly outside in the street over the entire 2 weeks. I found one in our room once. The apartments are not infested, you have to expect the odd one could walk in off the street but you may also find you don't see a single one (such as the rest of our group travelling with us who were in the apartment next door). Can't comment on the food as we went SC, but we did find the drinks in the bar really quite expensive. TIP- if you enjoy a spirit be warned they pour very large measures but charge a fortune. Just ask for another glass, pour half your spirit into that and just buy the mixer on the next round!!! (at around 6.40 euros for a G & T, it will save you money) and the general atmostphere including entertainment gave the feel of a caravan camp site. Not really up to much. The kids enjoyed the ball pit located by the bar. Food in the restaurants in Mogan was ok. Had the odd issue here and there but nothing too unusual. We generally found Dennehys Irish bar/grill,(and the place opposite this too, can't remember the name) The Zoo bar, and La Bruschetta the best quality food. Not the cheapest places I've eaten in. You really should try the Zona Verde though, a standalone place on the right as you walk down to the harbour and beach. Run by a French guy, he cooks everything on a wood burning oven next to the outdoor seating area and while there isn't much of a choice (sirloin, chicken kebab, usually a fish dish such as swordfish) it is a quirky place and probably the best tasting food we had in Mogan. The sirloin must have been 2 inches thick, cooked to perfection, and a bit more though had gone into your meal, not like the other restaurants which are more generic for the tourists. Well worth a try! Waterparks - Aqualand is about 45min bus ride away and expensive, we took the bus 5 mins round the corner to Taurito where you cannot miss a smaller waterpark which was really good value for money, 14 euros per adult and 5 euros per child, 2 euros sun bed rental (although we never rented any but used a couple and no one checked). There were about 5 or 6 big slides (10 years and 120cm height limit), 3 or 4 intermediate ones (100 cm height limit) and a few little ones. Salt water pools. It was probably a little tatty in places but worth a visit, we had a great day and cheap on the bus (10 euros for the 8 of us) plus a great journey around the mountain roads. Puerto De Mogan on the whole is a pretty, small and quiet resort, it's not lively anywhere at all but that's why we went. You'll have a good holiday if your a young family. The beach was great for kids too, the sea calm thanks to the breakwaters that have been put in.

The apartments are very modern, bright and spacious. The apartments are over 9 levels and a bit of a challenge to navigate when you first arrived, but you soon get used to it. Every 3rd level of apartments in the complex has double height ceilings in the living room and bedrooms. We had one of these are they really felt spacious. They also have a huge balcony with a shower on it which was handy. There were sun loungers on the balcony as well as a table and 4 chairs. There are 3 swimming pools, one an infinity pool overlooking the valley. We were self -catering and there is a Hyper-Dino supermarket just across the road. We found the prices fine and obviously it was very handy. The most criticism I could give it is that there are only fans in the room which does make it hot, particularly in the first few days while you acclimatise, but you can rent air-conditioning units. We tried to get half board for a few days but they were 'booked out' for this. They also have a Tex Mex restaurant advertised, but this closes during the summer!? So there is not much opportunity to eat at the apartments, you end up cooking or going down to the Marina. Their literature suggests that they do this as part of their philosophy of keeping the full community in business given that its a quite small resort. Seems admirable enough I think. Restaurant prices aren't as cheap as in other Gran Canaria resorts but its not excessive. We loved Zoo, great food and the kids loved the animals (none real..oh except the snake!) so I'd recommend trying it out. There is only a couple of apartment complexes and hotels in the whole resort so it was very relaxed and mainly populated by people from the Nordic countries, Germany, and Spain. There was a sprinkling of Irish and English. The area is beautiful and a 10 minute stroll down the promenade brings you to a beautiful marina on one side and a really nice beach on the other. There are 10-15 restaurants on the beach side and maybe 20 on the marina side. Personally i preferred the Marina side, I think it was even more relaxed than the beach side. And thats saying something cause this really is a lovely, peaceful, relaxed resort and not the place if you want nightlife..i think there's only a couple of bars that stay open after 11. The submarine trip is good. The 'Lighthouse' bar at the end of the harbour is lovely for a drink or some food as its surrounded by water. Other than that we went on a 'submarine boat' out of Puerto Rico which was sea-sickness inducing! On the subject of Puerto Rico, we went for a day and hated it!! So much hassle from restaurants as you walk down the street, and that really bugs me! Mogan was sooo much more beautiful and relaxing compared to it, we were very happy we had chosen Mogan. Overall, these are great apartments and a beautiful resort as long as you're happy with the simple things as its not packed with things to do. But it suited us perfectly (Mam/Dad/ 2 kids under 10)

I stayed here from the 2nd-16th of August with my mother and my 12 year old son. The apartment was clean & modern but very hot due to the lack of air con I hired one in the hotel for €60 p/w. I had emailed in advance asking for a high floor and was given apartment 938 we had a huge balcony with amazing views we were on the top floor so we had the sun until almost 8.30pm on the balcony. There are 3 pools we went to the infinity pool as it was quieter there. The lights go off on the balcony at 11pm so if you want to sit out any later bring a battery operated light. The resort itself is beautiful but very quiet if you are looking for a lively holiday Puerto Mogan is not for you. We went out for dinner every night we mainly went to The Marina Bar (Dennehys) we also liked Bruschetta & The Zoo Bar. We got the ferry into Puerto Rico one of the days! We also went to Palmitos Park which is a lovely day out we got off the bus in Maspalomas on the way back and did some shopping there. I would definately return to the Mogan Valle it was my mothers birthday while we were there and there was a bottle of champaigne sent up to the apartment I thought this was a lovely gesture as we have been away almost every year for her birthday and have never gotten this service.

We booked this holiday through Dawson and Sanderson (build your own section) for 2 adults, a 12 year old, 11 year old and an 18month. The flight was fine (apart from a nightmare child) and locating the bus was straightforward. The driver spoke no English and didnt seem overjoyed at the trip to Mogan. We were the last drop off which took around 1hr 30mins with little or no air con on the bus, over the high hills and tight roads at 2am in the morning is enough to keep you alert. Arriving at the hotel at this time meant no arrival drinks but we just wanted our beds anyway to be honest. We were in room 230 which was near the kids pool on the 1st floor. The room was tidy with a big balcony, good kitchen utensils and clean sheets. As per eveyone elses complaints the lack of air con was really hard but as the week went on we got climatised. BIG TIP!!! If you are booking over the phone you will get the option of upper or lower level. Chose Upper Level to guarentee a big balcony as the lower level balconies are tiny. People did have their towels on beds from early morning but we went down around midday with no issues getting beds. The kids pool was busy with predominantly spanish people taking over from late afternoon. There were some english there but noticably more spanish holiday makers, but also germans as well. The infinity pool was nice but small and the north pool was okay. I know its what you expect and there is nothing the hotel can do with this but with the age groups we took I wish we booked an English only hotel as I seen numerous arguments with spanish kids ganging up on the English kids, even a Spanish adult throwing a ball of an English kid and shouting harsh words??? The enteratainment was basic and unless you like hearing the entertainer repeat everything in 3 languages every time they need to say something, I would give it a miss. Drinks by the pool and in the hotel are so expensive so get them in stock from across the road in the Hippodiner (supermarket). I got 4 drinks on the night time which came to 25 euros??? There is a sports bar directly opposite with some friendly staff next to the Hippodiner. As you walk down to the marina there is a Spar, which is very expensive, even compared to the Hippodiner. We went to the Zoo Restaurant near the Marina which was nice but our favourite was a restaurant at the end of the marina (chicken curry was amazing). The lighthouse restaurant was also nice. Okay....now the market everyone has been raving about. Its on a Friday and can I suggest they change the name to Copycat-Tat Market? Over priced crap, no further comments needed. Overall the hotel is perfect for a relaxing family holiday,but do not go ifr you are in a couple under 40. We didnt leave uhntil 9pm to come home and they couldnt not give late check out. There is free wifi in reception as well which is handy for you phones.

Only back from a week in the Mogan Valle and couldn't fault the apartments at all. They were spotless and had everyting that you would need for a lovely holiday (comfy beds, great shower, kettle, toaster, etc) We did ask for a lower (but not ground) floor apt and were put on the ground floor. This apartment was dark and had a patio instead of a balacony and was right beside the very noisy and busy pool. We asked to move to a slightly higher floor and ended up on the 8th floor - but what a difference! The balcony was huge with outdoor shower, table and 4 chairs, and two sun loungers... The only little quibble was changing lifts 4 times to get there! The staff on the whole were very helpful and pleasant - with the exception of the lady in the bar who looked like she would rather be anywhere else. The bar closed at around 11 and there never seemed to be anyone in there - not surprising with 'welcome' on offer. We went in on at least two different occassions after our one and only drink and it wasn't any better. In general, I thought the Mogan was very nice - different from any other resort I've been in. The shops closed at around 7pm, the restaurant/bars mainly before midnight so its not the place to go if you're looking for a mad party holiday. However, if you're looking for a relaxing break - its hard to beat..... We did get the bus to Puerto Rico one evening for a change but ended up back in Mogan for last orders (not easy when that's 11pm!)

Just came back from from a fantastic last minute hol here. Stayed here two years ago and found apartments stifling hot no air con but was pleasantly surprised with the canopys they have installed on windows made a massive difference. Mogan is the most relaxing place to stop lovely beach nice restaurants to eat in and friendly people. We will definitely go back.

Top holiday. We had a ground floor apartment which walked out onto the main pool area, and absolutely loved it. Self catering meant we hardly spent a penny at the hotel itself, Hiper dino supermarket was across the road and had everything we needed. We slipped into the sports bar to watch the charity shield - the chap there couldn't do enough for us , setting us up with a table in front of the telly. The Taj tandoori was next door to that - a blokes dream.From a family view point the beach & harbour were a 10 minute walkaway and were beautiful, all restaurants we ate in were great, particulary Fragata 1 & the larger irish bar right next to it. food & service amazing here ( i don't normally do Irish bars but this one i'lll make an exception for) El pescadore in the harbour square was also very good. MIxed experience on the reception desk some great service some especially unhelpful. We saw many comments about the lack of aircon... and went with it.... the room was hot & aircon would definitely have been beneficial. when we asked for one at reception none were available from the hotel, so we could rent one from an outside compny which may arrive in 2 days for eur 90 per week, not the eur60 the hotel were charging.... we ended up buying a fan from good old hiperdino at eur23, it was ok but not aircon. we visited the hotel next door - that was amazing. friday market was really good & well worth a visit. we hired a pedalo a the beach eur 12 for an hour. gym at the hotel opens a bit late at 11 am- 7 pm and was cosy.

We stayed here for 2 weeks in August, we booked direct with Cordial Resorts based in the UK (MissElliesWorld) and they did our flights and private transfer too. We paid a lot less than Thomson/First Choice guests and also we were on half board. We didnt really want Half Board as we enjoy eating out as a family, but we did use it some nights. I thought the food was good at all time, yes you get bored of seeing same thing but you can eat something different every night if you want to, the salads were always fresh and varied, I didnt eat the veg, chips or pasta as dont like them,, but always a good choice of bread and at least 3 meat and 2 fish choices cooked fresh in front of you. Breakfast was the same, dont forget it caters for europeans so you get salad, pate etc for breakfast too, I had a daily omelette and fresh fruit so all in all I ate really well at the hotel. If you are on half board you can choose to eat the meal at lunchtime as long as you tell them the night before. We often bought rolls in the supermarket opposite and made our own lunch in the room. The rooms are massive, we had a 2 bedroom apartment on the top floor, the higher you are the less cockroaches you will see, we only had 1 in our room and soon killed it. You are also not overlooked from above which is nice. the apartments desperately need aircon, but keep the curtains shut and shades on the balcony down after 3pm and it helps. We adjusted to the hot climate each day and slept ok at night with the doors closed. YOu are better to buy a fan at the supermarket and put it on your bedside table than hire aircon units as they are rubbish apparently. The fans are approx 15 euros each. The stairs and lifts are a pain but you get used to them and they are a good workout if you run up them!! The town is a 10 minute stroll through a pedestrian area, not really any shops worth mentioning but lots of restaurants to choose from. We ate at the Irish Bar in the square, Patio Restaurant next to Hotel Club de Mar, Zoo Bar and an italian in the square, and another small one in the square, we had nice meals at all of them. We tended to eat at the harbour and have a drink and icecream near beach afterwards. Prices vary and for someone used to Portugal prices I thought it was very expensive!! At one of the restaurants who i wont name as they did put it right, but its a warning for others, I had a travelex cash passport in euros and paid for a meal for 8 one night 188 euros, but didnt get asked to check the amount, just to enter the pin, I checked my statement online a few days later and they had debited 216 euros at a rate of 1.15 so had selected for me to pay in GBP instead of EUROs, hence not showing me the amount on the PDQ machine. This is a con and they knew what they were doing, I went back with my statement and got the 28 EUROS refunded, beware if you pay by cash passport as I am sure this goes on withouth people knowing, if I hadnt seen it on my statement until I got home I wouldnt have been able to do anything about it. I used the cashpoints in the town and didnt get charged to withdraw using the travelex cash passport. The beach is lovely, the sea is warm and calm and yes it gets busy especially at the weekend. We visited the Mogan Playa next door, you are allowed to use the bar, watch the shows, and pay to eat there, but not use the pool. We chose the apartments over the hotel as didnt want a hotel room with a sofa bed or z beds for our kids who are now 12 & 10 as its too cramped. The buffet is very similar as the apartments, but in nicer surroundings. A few guests got moved to the hotel after complaining about the apartments, but had to pay a hefty upgrade to move, and so they should. One family pretended to cry about the hot rooms and then made a gesture of triumph behind the receptionists back when she agreed to move them so I hope they paid a lot!! I might sound bitter but if you read the reviews properly you know what you are getting at te Mogan Valle, and I got the impression that this family knew exactly what they were doing or how else would they know what the hotel was like?? We went and watched a few shows in thet hotel as the Mogan Valle entertainment is non existent,, I dont like hotel entertainment and never bother watching it and this was no different! Mogan Valle could make more of the bar area as its very uninviting with tables all lined up and a rude barman, drinks are not that dear unless you have a spirit and mixer which is 6 euros! We did the boat trip to Puerto Rico hourly for 6 euros one way or 10 euros return, and half for kids, which was nice, not the resort though!! Hounded by timeshare sharks as soon as we got off boat, if you think Mogan beach is packed you should see Puerto Rico! We also did AQUALAND, we bought tickets on their website and saved 15% on gate price, but you have to take a copy of your passport or you wont get in, a copy will do. YOu can get a taxi there for 30euros each way, and there are loads waiting at the end of the day, or you can get a bus but have to change, this would be a lot cheaper but we couldnt really be doing with it, especially after seeing the buses going round the corner on the mountain roads!! I enjoyed the holiday and certainly wouldnt complain about the apartments as I knew what too expect. Staff were helpful, rooms were spotless and recently decorated, and we got a courtesy room for 25 euros for our last day as they needed our 2 bedroom apartment. I would go back but not in high season, it would be a nice winter sun break

I've just returned after spending 10 nights at this hotel. I booked the Ryanair flights myself and the hotel via the internet. After checking how much the taxi transfer to and from the airport would cost I decided to opt for a hire car for the whole 10 days. My biggest worry from reading reviews here was the lack of air conditioning. I was relieved to find that this wasn't a problem provided you are prepared to leave some patio doors open overnight. A great feature of the accommodation are the large sun blinds that enable you to keep direct sunlight from shining through the patio doors. In fact the moveable blinds enabled us to sit in the shade at any time of day at our table and chairs. We are not really sunbathers and find we catch enough sun just by walking around and swimming in the pools. My second biggest worry based on a stay in Tenerife was the cockroaches. Once again I needn't have worried as I only saw 2 dead cockroaches and 1 live one and they were outside of our rooms. The rooms were clean and spacious and the self-catering facilities were pretty good. We only did bed and breakfast and the breakfasts were fine apart from the hot food being a bit cold. The pools were good although apart from the baby pool the pools are all the same depth with no shallow end so our 6 year old had to wear his arm bands. Puerto Mogan is a really nice small resort and after seeing and driving through most of the southern resorts we definitely made the right choice. The other resorts seemed positively tacky by comparison. My only warning on the accommodation concerns the ground floor. I had initially asked for a room on the 1st or 2nd floors but was allocated a ground floor apartment and when asked to be moved was told that the hotel was completely full. We ended up in room 140 which overlooked the tennis courts and was fine for us with little disturbance from people walking past. Some of the other ground floor apartments closer to the pool and reception were in very exposed positions with people constantly walking past your "private" space. A tip if you have a hire car: Drive to Mogan and continue for a few kms until on your left you will see a restaurant/grill bar with the car park to your right. The food is good and the setting is excellent. Drive another 10-15 minutes into the mountains and you will come across Las Canadas, a totally charming grill bar and museum which sold delicious fresh fruit drinks as well as very reasonably priced meals. I hope to return to this hotel/resort in the future.

Stayed here for 7 nights last year, everything was great, going back for 11 nights soon, but staying at different hotel in Mogan(Club de Mar), just for a change and a different view, no other reason, nothing wrong with the hotel at all. Enjoy:)

Hola. Mi marido , yo y nuestro niño de 20 meses nos alojamos una semana en este hotel, ahora en agosto. Acabamos de volver, y la verdad es que está muy bien para las familias, está orientado a ese tipo de turismo, hay muchísimos niños por todos lados y ellos lo pasan genial, hay mucho alemán pero también mucha gente canaria que veranea allí en Mogan, y a diferencia de otros sitios, te hablan español en todas partes.. Las instalaciones están muy bien porque es todo muy nuevo, muy limpio, y los apartamentos son grandes y con terrazas enormes, casi todas con vistas porque van escalonadas por la montaña. Puntos fuertes: para mi, la amabilidad tanto de la gente de recepción como de los camareros, que siempre estaban de buen humor, y haciendo bromas a los niños, y pendientes de si necesitas algo; y que los niños tienen de todo: tronas por todas partes, parque de bolas, piscina.... Puntos débiles: el bufet, le falta variedad. Yo os aconsejaria solo coger alojamiento y desayuno ( que si es variado) pero no comida ni cena, casi mejor cocinar en el apartamento, porque la comida es bastante regular, y la cena se hace en dos turnos, aunque ahora en agosto había 3, y como te ponen ellos en el que quieren, a nosotros nos pusieron en el úlitmo que era de 9 y media a 10 y media, y ya se habían acabado muchas cosas del bufet, supongo que lo bueno. Y también falla la animación infantil, en concreto la chica que tenían como animadora, era una aburrida a la que claramente no le gustaban los niños y en el miniclub los tenia haciendo pequeñas manualidades en silencio todos, sin música ni nada, así que los crios aburridisimos, cada vez iban menos, al final un día que se quedó mi marido con el peque, se puso él a cantar y animarlos, aunque como hay tantos niños se hacen amigos entre ellos, pero la chica, la verdad que pésima. Deberían cuidar eso en un sitio destinado a familias. Aun así en general, os lo recomiendo, nosotros hemos ido a varios aparthoteles y éste en general, está muy bien.

Stayed in a two bedroom apartment in late July with my family (Wife and two children), apartment was a great size, good level of furniture and equipment. Massive rooms and huge balcony, that had a a six seat table, four sun loungers and an outdoor shower. We spent the majority of our time on the balcony, popping down to the pool as and when required. We took the breakfast option and thoroughly enjoyed, even though it was quite busy there was always tables available and plenty of food. Downside, no air conditioning, we ended up with the three ceiling fans constantly on, the three patio doors always open - we managed, but air conditioning would have made it superb.

Vraiment très spacieux, une cuisine bien équipée et une terrasse sans vis à vis de laquelle on peut profiter d'une vue vierge d'immeuble (ce qui est plutôt rare dans cette partie des Canaries). L'accueil est sympathique avec une coupe de cava ou un verre de jus d'orange pour les enfants. Préférer selon mon goût un appartement en étage élevé. On s'y perd les premières fois, la résidence proposant de nombreux appartements sur plusieurs étages... mais cette position vous permet de garantir tranquillité et vue agréable. Les piscines sont au nombre de 3. Une préférence pour la piscine nord entourée de jardins aux bananiers et autres plantes tropicales. En bref, excellent séjour avec des enfants !

Just returned from 10 night stay in cordial mogan valle had a really good holiday. The rooms are clean and bright with great balcony shame they havent got air con but you can request this for a cost we didnt bother as it cooled down a bit in evening so wasnt too bad. The pool areas are nice and plenty of sunloungers however at the end of our stay people were putting towells out to reserve them. My kids liked the kids club and the cocktail games by the pool bar. We ate at the restaurant in the hotel next door called los guayres twice its not cheep but yummy food and friendly service and nice setting. We also enjoyed the wood burning stove restaurant which is on a bit further then the hyperdino i think called zona verde Looks a bit like someones back garden but fab!! Breakfasts really nice lots of choice too. Nice little ballpit area for younger kids to play in by bar. Evening entertainment a little poor and everything closes at 11pm but at least that means its not noisy till early hours. My kids had plenty of friends to play with and it is nice as there are lots of nationalities.

Our second trip to Gran Canaria. we had trouble finding 2 bedroom appartments in all our online searches. We found them at Cordial Valle. Puerto de Mogan is a lovely small town. The appartments were about a 10 minute walk to the town/beach. The 2 bedroom appartments are a good size with 2 bathrooms, As the complex is built into a hillside there are a number of lifts to negotiate to get around. The three pools in the complex were great, and the childrens pool is great for smaller kids. The other facilities in the complex were good, though there was some refurbishment going on when we were there. Very helpful and pleasant staff. Overall it was a great place to stay - its not the 4 star hotel down the road but very good facilities for an appartment complex. We will probably return!

We arrived late to our hotel, and were happy to get a glass of cool champagne while we registered. Our room was on the top level, and when we got there, via 3 lifts, we found the room to be much more luxurious than we were expecting. We booked bed and breakfast, and in the morning were amazed at the variety and quantity of food on offer. And the staff, even on the first day were so friendly, helpful and smiling. If you want fried eggs you have to queue up for a couple of minutes, but the scrambled egg with ham was my choice most days. After the first day or so finding our way around the hotel and the local area, we settled down for a relaxing time at the pool side. We found the big pool in the middle of the hotel best, the sun lounges were in much better condition. As usual when we arrived after breakfast, the usual towels on loungers and the pool mostly empty. Yet another surprise to find the hotel staff leaving letters for guests advising them AGAIN about the lounger policy, and even better, a member of staff removing towels, HOORAY!! Be warned. Did not eat at the hotel in the evenings, but more than enough places at the sea front, beware the flies which appear as soon as food arrives, probably better to sit a bit further inside. Or go to the restaurants around the marina area, there is less of a problem with the flies. We found a superb restaurant DENNEHYS, a sort of Irish pub, serving ale as well as lager. We did not have a bad meal here, and i recommend the John Dory with cheese and onion sauce. Jez, one of the waiters there, was a mine of information, and always came over to say hello, even if he had not served us. That's what i call great customer service. Jez, ask the boss for a raise!! The ferry boats are a great trip, but beware Puerto Rico. We were accosted on 9 separate occasions by people selling time share apartments, and that was just walking from the ferry to the town centre. They tried again on the way back. Spoilt the whole visit to the town. Puerto Rico town council take note, these people are not helping your tourist trade!! Less of a thrill is the Yellow Submarine trip, all right if you have £60 to spare. Works out to about a £1 per person per minute. The market on friday's is great as well, but don't be tempted by the first stalls in the square, the market goes right through the town to the harbour. All in all we enjoyed our first trip to the Canaries, and would certainly go back to the Cordial Mogan Valle Apartments again. Thanks to all the staff for there great customer service, and always a smile when talking to you.

Stayed early June (which was low season and nice and quiet) with my boyfriend. Very impressed with the apartment which was spacious and modern. I would say that if you are staying in hotter months you might want to think about renting an a/c unit as the ceilings fans are not very effective. Unfortunately we had a bad first night experience when we realised our bed sheets were full of insects (suspected small cockroach species), however we think these had got into the sheets before they were put on the beds rather than the room itself. We went down to reception (at 12.30pm!) which took us a while to remember where it was as to start with the layout of lifts, etc is not easy to start with. They immediately moved us to a different room and gave us a bottle of sparkling wine the next day to apologise. After this the rest of our 9 night holiday was perfect. We mainly used the inifinity pool on the 3rd floor as this was quiter and had beatuiful views. Puerto Mogan is a quiet, relaxed and beautiful location. The Hiperdino opposite the apartments is very convenient. Don't be fooled by the 'shopping centre' also opposite. There were about 6 shops on the ground floor and an Indian Restaurant/Take Away on the second and that's it. Other units are unoccupied and the second floor is not even finished. A good shop on the ground floor is Natura and everyone loves the huge bear in the doorway! There is a big market every Friday that stretches from the shops near the beach all the way down the harbour. It took us 10-15mins to walk to the beachfront. If you want to use the sunbeds on the beach they are 3 euros and parasoles are 3. Restaurants around the beach are cheaper than the ones round the harbour, the food is not out of this world with these but still good quality. Drinks can be quite pricey, one restaurant/bar charged 3.50 euros for a 350ml of fanta! We recommend El Faro restaurant which is right at the very end of the harbour, you can see it from the beach side and it has lovely panoramic views. We had lamb and steak which were excellent. If you want to do boat trips, the best place to go to is Puerto Rico as Mogan only does the submarine trip and fishing trips. You can also do parasailing and jet skis but these were expensive activities. You can get a ferry boat to Rico for 10 euros return although bus is 2.50. We really enjoyed this holiday as it was quite and relaxing. If you want a nightlife go elsewhere. We would definitely go back again.

This was our (husband & I) first trip to Gran Canaria and we were very pleased with Puerto Mogan and this aparthotel. Our flat was a good size for the two of us with a generous sized bath and big balcony that was full of sun from early afternoon til evening (the sun was warm enough to sunbathe until about 18.30!) We spent the morning til early afternoon and one of the two quiet smaller pools; the third and largest pool is best for families with children. Our the private transportation that was included in our package took 40 minutes to the quiet Puerto Mogan. We're not party people so the quietness suited us and we felt very safe there. Almost every night we strolled down the pedestrian street to eat at a restaurant (we recommend La Taberna del Puerto at the port, not the beach) for about 40 euro, including alcohol. Otherwise we shopped at HyperDino (open Sundays as well), the grocery store directly across from the hotel which was very reasonably priced (keeping in mind we are from Norway) and carries everything one might need. The flat's kitchen is well equipped for 4 persons. We read about others difficulty with cockroaches, but we saw none. We had a brief problem with tiny ants in the bathroom that was solved by locating the tiny crack in the grout where they came from and stopping it with toothpaste. Oh, bring your own handsoap for the sink. Others are right -- the hairdryer is HOPELESS. Bring your own. Water presser in the shower was wonderful, but the pane of glass was too narrow to keep the floor dry. The employees were all very friendly. Since we didn't know what to expect, our package included breakfast. The breakfast selection was wide and varied to make everyone happy. Maria at the omelette/fried egg station was very pleasant and taught me how to place my order in Spanish (even though she had it memorized by day 3). Yes, there is no air conditioning, but for May, we were ok with the fans in the bedroom and living area. If it were any warmer, we would have had to rent one. It was a little disappointing to have to rent the room safe (14 euro/wk). Two evenings were affected by noise from the British pub across the way showing a televised football game. It was so loud we could understand the announcer word-for-word from our balcony. The front desk said this was frequently a problem and could not be solved by them complaining to the pub.

Un hotel muy recomendable por servicio, limpieza, situación, tranquilidad,... Sólo un problema. Entre las normas del hotel está el no reservar hamacas y sombrillas en la piscina y no se cumple. Antes de las 10, horario de inicio de funcionamiento de la piscina no quedaba ni una hamaca, ni una sombrilla sin reservar en ninguna de las piscinas. Lo peor es que no existe ningún control, ya que estuve 4 horas en la piscina y gran parte de las hamacas no fueron ocupadas por nadie durante ese tiempo.

Mycket lugnt hotell med bra läge och väldigt trevlig personal. Lägenhetsköket fungerade mycket bra till de frukostar vi tillagade, men några storkok var det inte tal om för vår del. Lägenheterna var rymliga för två personer. Dock en del letande i början innan man hittade tillbaka till rummet. Det finns många hissar och ville man inte gå i trappor blev det för vår del tre (3) olika hissturer till sjunde våningen. Rena, fräscha pooler med omärkbar klorering. Duschen vid poolen hade mycket starkare klordoft. Det enda som vi har lite åsikter om är maten i snackbaren som inte föll oss i smaken (tråkig, okryddad och utan finess) - Men smaken är ju som bekant delad. De omedelbara omgivningarna kännetecknas av turistaffärer och vägen som går igenom byn. Dock med väldigt lite trafik på genomfartsleden. Närheten till hamnen och dess många restauranger gav en kort men välbehövlig promenad efter måltiderna. Kollektivtrafik (bussar) finns också alldeles i närheten. Så vår bedömning är ett fräscht lägenhetshotell med hygglig spansk standard till resonabelt pris. Om det blir Gran Canaria fler gånger vet vi inte, men om det blir så är möjligheten stor att det blir detta hotellet även nästa gång.

My wife and I have just returned from a week in Puerto de Mogan staying at the Cordial Mogan Valle. Puerto de Mogan is all we were looking for and more! If you're looking for loud bars and late night clubs it's not for you. If you want a pretty little fishing village with a decent size beach and a good selection of restaurants then you will not be disappointed. We chose to go self catering as we like to rise late and enjoy a relaxed breakfast before heading down to the pool and then heading down to the harbour to choose a nice restaurant to spend the evening. We couldn't have been happier with our choice of apartment/location. Our apartment was very spacious with more than enough room to relax. The kitchen was well appointed with two rings, microwave, fridge (with freezer compartment), kettle, toaster and coffee machine - although we didn't cook any meals so can't comment on the oven. The balcony was gloriously huge with more than enough room to fit a table with 4 chairs and 2 sun beds. There's even a shower on the balcony so you can cool off after too much sun. If I am being really picky (and I'm forcing myself here) I might comment on the lack of english speaking TV channels (CNN and BBC World Service get's a bit boring after a while) but then we weren't there to watch TV. My one recommendation would be to book a private transfer. We didn't and after crawling round all the tiny, twisty streets in Playa des Ingles the total transfer time from airport to hotel was 2 hours! Having said that I believe it helped us appreciate Puerto de Mogan all the more, having seen all the other places we dropped off/picked up at I can honestly say I would not have swapped for any of them. I can't think of any other negative, the only reason I haven't given this place 5 stars is that I've stayed at 5 star resorts and there is a difference. But I would happily recommend this apartment complex/location to anyone.

The apartment was clean and spacious and served well as a base. The complex is large and seems a little impersonal although we were there out of season. The apartment we had did not get much sun until very late in the afternoon. The town itself is quiet with some good quality restaurants. We did find that wine was a little costly and the food was not cheap. A good place for a quiet, relaxing holiday!

I really loved this hotel/apartments. Our apartment was clean and spacious and very well appointed. The bathroom was large and there was plenty of hot water and a bath. The balcony had a nice view of the mountains and had sun loungers, a shower and even a little patch of fake grass, which our daughter loved to play on. The room was cleaned regularly. The staff were polite and helpful. I don't know about the food as we did not eat at the hotel, we used to walk down to the harbour and beach where there are lots of restaurants and cafes. Our daughter (20 months) enjoyed the baby pool and the beach, both of which are very safe for young children. My only gripes would be that the main pools are not heated (they stop heating them in March) and at the beginning of May they were FREEZING. So much so that people who were brave enough to swim in them actually felt physically ill. The Atlantic sea was warmer and that's saying something. So it limited what we could do during the day and it was frustrating to see such lovely pools and not be able to actually use them. Another thing was that there is a mini disco every night for the children, which is great for families but we never got to go as they started it later and later and our daughter could never wait up that long. She would have loved to go but 8.30 is too late for most little kids. Finally, the hotel has quite a complicated lay out with lifts that face various ways and go to various levels and the maps are just pictures and takes a bit of working out. On arrival we were given a lovelycold drink and a warm welcome and then we were left with a map we didn't really understand, trying to find our apartment dragging a buggy and 4 suitcases in and out of wrong lifts. I would really recommend that the staff show you to your room and have someone help with the luggage as this poor beginning does not reflect the over all quality of this establishment.

Flott hotell som passer godt uansett alder. Store praktiske leiligheter med veldig stor og flott veranda med to solsenger og bord med fire stoler. Vi hadde basseng til barna på verandaen, og fremdeles var det masse plass! Hotellet ligger en kort spasertur fra sentrum, i rolige omgivelser og med tilgang til det du måtte trenge! Veldig vakkert område, med muligheter for turer både med og uten puls. Både sparbutikk og nærbutikk i umiddelbar nærhet, hvor de blant annet har barnemat, morsmelkerstatning og bleier. Stranden er flott, og det er forholdsvis billig å leie solsenger. Ved stranden ligger masse restauranter.

I would be 'nit-picking' to find fault with these apartments.I agree with most,if not all, of the positive comments here. The majority of the staff were exemplary in their manner during our stay,the apartment was well up to standard with regard to cleanliness, and,despite not being to my taste with regard to decor, was certainly not 'tired' or in any way unacceptable.As an aside, I have what I could describe as a virtual phobia about cockroaches, and, having been to Gran Canaria in the past , know that they can be commonplace.That having been said,to my relief I didn't see a single one of the aforementioned creatures during my entire stay , neither within the complex nor elsewhere on the island during my week's stay.Fellow entomophobics(I had to look that up in the dictionary) you can sleep well in your beds, during april at least!.I hope everyone enjoys their stay as much as I did.

We stayed for a week at these apartments on a self catering basis. Check in was quick and easy, our room easy to find (L243) but i can see how others may have had problems, its a massive complex with lots of lifts, stairs, corridors. The apartment was great, clean and spacious. Massive balcony with sun loungers, table and chairs - we quickly got into the habit of having an hour or two in the sun on the balcony each afternoon and also having a morning coffee watching the tennis in the courts below. Sound carried from nearby balconies during the morning / daytime, but it was never a problem at night and didnt affect our sleep at all. Beds were comfortable and room cleaned /towels changed 5 times during our 7 day staff. We are a couple with no children, but its clear that this is an accommodation suited to families too - the children all seemed to love the babies pool etc. Overall, very happy with the accommodation - my only complaint is that the pool bar needs more staff. I waited there for almost 30 minutes one day - couldnt blame the poor guy working there, just he could do with a buzzer to ring for assistance at busy times, or just put another member of staff on.. Plus all his equipment (coffee machine, ice chipper, sandwich maker) seemed to be very slow, which didnt help. We did use the spa facilities twice - the first time was fab, the second time, ok, but the floatation tank was too hot and despite me mentioning it to a staff member, it hadnt cooled down enough to use before we left the spa. Tiny nit-picking complaints really - we had a great holiday at this accommodation :-) PS - we hired a car and drove from the airport to Mogan - just be aware the road is a little hairy on the last section due to it running along the mountainside - its worse on the return journey from Mogan to the airport!!

Somos un matrimonio con dos niños de 8 y 6 años y hemos estado alojados aquí una semana. Los apartamentos son muy, muy amplios y tienen una terraza estupenda. Una de las cosas que más hemos valorado es la tranquilidad a la hora de dormir (tanto dentro como fuera del hotel). El personal es muy agradable y atento. La comida también está bastante bien para lo que suele ser en este tipo de hoteles. La playa, aunque hay un paseito hasta llegar, está muy bien para los niños porque no tiene ningún peligro. Además hay tres piscinas, una de ellas con unas vistas estupendas. En definitiva, muy recomendable.

We came to stay for a week after Easter and were not disappointed by the accomodation and service which has exceeded out expectations.we were self catering so can't comment on the catering arrangements. Though thed is sn excellent hypermarket opposite. The entertainment was a bit hit and miss with some events like the Abba night being cancelled for apparent scheduling issues me

Viajamos con dos niños pequeños y todo fue genial. El apartamento muy agradable; destacar sobretodo la terraza con hamacas y ducha. Pero lo que más nos gustó fue el trato del personal, nuestro agradecimiento especial a Eugenio y su equipo, siempre pendiente de ofrecer el mejor servicio. También destacar que la playa está estupenda para niños pequeños porque es muy tranquila y segura. Pasamos unas vacaciones de semana santa ¡estupendas!

We asked our travel agent to find a family-friendly place in the sun for us that wasn't smack dab in the middle of a lively tourist town. The Coridal Mogan Valle in Puerto de Mogan hit the nail on the head. We just returned yesterday after spending a week and will definitely go back. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful with whatever we needed. The champagne on arrival was a great touch. Our apartment was on the ground floor in the "G" block - it was a bit tricky remembering how to get there (up 2 floors in one lift, walk across the sundeck, then 2 floors down another lift and walk through "H" block), but after a couple of days you get your head around it. Our apartment was directly by the pool yet we still had privacy due to a lush tropical garden bed separating our patio from the pool deck and we also had a sun shade we could roll down for further privacy. The pool at this end of the resort was probably the quietest of the 3, probably because it was out of the way and there wasn't a play area or bar attached to it! FYI - the pools are only heated until March 31st so the water was FREEZING when we were there. Even my 7 year old daughter who will brave most any water could only stay in for a very short period of time! Our 1 bedroom apartment was a very good size and well kitted with everything for self-catering: we had glasses/mugs, and table service for 4, a large and small frying pans, a sauce pan, and large pan for soups. Plenty of cooking utensils, cutting board, toaster, kettle, and filter coffee maker (but only one outlet so breakfast was a juggle!) There is a small fridge with a good icebox that we stocked with ice cream :) The rooms have a ceiling fan in the kitchen/lounge area and another in the bedroom. Our bathroom was spacious but sadly lacked any kind of ventilation - some rooms have windows in the bathrooms but ours didn't...a fan would have been nice but it wasn't that big of a deal. The beds are VERY FIRM - that's a plus if you like that sort of thing but we're soft bed people. Fortunately we exhausted ourselves during the day and went to sleep anyway. The staff were very good about giving us more pillows which helped to increase the comfort. We only ate at the buffet once (the night we arrived). The food was OK but it didn't inspire us enough for a return visit. We stuck with self-catering or enjoyed one of the many restaurants down by the beach and harbour. There are plenty of eating places to choose from, truly something for everyone and every budget. No chain restaurants, but every place we went to was child-friendly and had separate childrens' menu. If you want to book into the restaurant at the hotel next door, reception can take of that for you but be warned, it might take a few days for a table. There is a Mini Disco at the resort in the evenings (times vary, but usually around 8pm) led by a wildly dressed Animator. The kids loved it but sadly it was only half an hour long! This was the one big shortcoming of the Mogan Valle - it is in dire need of a Kid's Club or more children's activities in the evening! Towards the end of the week as more families arrived for Easter Holidays, the atmosphere became positively chaotic (and deafening!) once the Mini Disco was finished. The children moved from the terrace into the bar and started running around, playing ball by the bar (!), loads of shouting and screaming...! It was too chilly and windy for night swimming and there are only 2 English speaking channels on TV (CNN and BBC World Service News, although sometimes the Disney Channel had shows in English), so the nights can drag on a bit if you have children! Other than that it was a spectacular stay. BTW - the HyperDino supermarket is right across from the Mogan Valle. Bottled water is cheap (about 79 cents for 8 Litre bottle!), there is a charge for the bags (5 cents), and sometimes our MasterCard Money Passport card didn't work so be sure to have cash as a back up! That was the only place we had problems with it, though. There is a Spar in town that is quite good and open everyday until 8:30pm. Out of all the towns we visited on the island, Puerto de Mogan was the best. The location is gorgeous and the small fishing village still feels authentic in spite of the growing tourist trade. It's a sharp contrast to overly crowded, purpose-built tourist resort towns of Maspalmas and Puerto Rico.

Mycket bra lägenhetshotell, lyxigt med stor balkong som det fanns både solstolar, bord med 4 stolar samt UTEdusch, härligt, dock saknades bra kokutrustning, kastruller o stekpanna hade rund botten vilket innebar att det tog lång tid att laga mat, så har ni för avsikt att äta era middagar i lägenheten rekommenderar jag att ni checkar av utrustningen. Saknade även vinglas, men det går säkert att låna om man ber om det. Tänk även på att ta med poolhandukar då de inte är villiga att lämna ut sådana trots att det står att det finns i katalogen. Mycket lugnt o bra område om man inte är ute efter håll i gång, hörde tom fåglarna på morgonen, dock saknades bra promenadstråk om man inte vill vandra uppe i bergen, det var en del cyklister där o de verkade älska bergen. Det tog ca 10 min att gå ner till byn där alla mysiga restauranger låg, men det var bara bra så man fick röra på sig. Kan rekommendera att ta båten över till bl a Puerto Rico, tar ca 20-30 min o kostar tur o retur ca 100:-. På fredagar har de marknad o den var enorm, hela byn var full av folk, tyvärr var det lite för varmt att gå, hade varit bättre på kvällen då solen gått ned. Det jag tyckte var värst var den långa transfern, hade bussen gått direkt till Mogan så hade det varit ok men att åka högst upp i bergen i Puerto Rico för att släppa av enstaka personer det var helt sjukt, resan tog 95 min på denna slingriga väg, så har ni anlag för åksjuka så är det inget för er. I det hela var det bra o om de ändrar transferrutten så kommer jag absolut åka dit igen.

The reception area was clean with comfortable sofas and the staff were friendly and helpful. The layout of the apartments was a little complicated but we were given a map with clear instructions. The apartment was furnished in contemporary furniture and was comfortable. The balcony was large enough for two loungers, table and 4 chairs and an outside shower. Maid service was regular and the apartment was kept clean. The views from the balcony weren't the best but we still enjoyed sitting out on a morning and evening. The room was also quiet with no noise from nightlife. The location of the hotel was an easy walk from the beach, unlike neighbouring resorts the apartments are not built up a hillside necessitating a walk up and down a steep hill to get to the beach. There were 3 pools, none of them very big but they were clean and the surrounding areas in good condition with comfortable loungers or chairs. There were only a couple of niggles about the apartment. One was that there was the occassional smell of drains but that is pretty standard for the hotter countries. The other was that there was no oven in the apartment, just a microwave and two hotplates, we could have done with an oven to heat up pizzas.

Die Apatmentanlage ist sehr gepflegt und noch relativ neu, unser Apartment daher wenig abgenutzt und abgewohnt. Die üblichen kleineren Schäden, die der spanischen Bauweise und dem Wetter geschuldet sind lasse ich mal außen vor. In den ersten Tagen hatten wir starken Regen, was dazu führte, dass Wasser in unseren Flur, unter der Tür hindurch, eindrang. Die Hotelleitung kümmerte sich umgehend darum, dass der Schaden beseitigt wurde und hat uns zur Entschädigung einen leckeren Obstkorb mit einer Flasche Sekt aufs Zimmer stellen lassen. Das Personal ist sehr nett, wie überall in Spanien, besonders zu Kindern. Wir haben uns ernsthaft willkommen und gut betreut gefühlt. Das Essen war abwechslungsreich und jeden Tag frisch und appetitlich angerichtet. Es gab jeden Tag frischen Fisch und Fleisch, direkt vor den Augen frisch gegrillt, dazu ein reichhaltiges Salatbufet und diverse andere warme Speisen und Sättigungsbeilagen. Für die Kinder war immer etwas dabei. Angenehmes Unterhaltungsprogramm und Animation. Minidisco, die meine ältere Tochter regelmäßig und mit Begeisterung besuchte und immer mal wieder ein Showprogramm für die Erwachsenen, aber auch für Kinder nicht uninteressant. Alles in Allem ein rundum gelungener Urlaub!!! Wir kommen wieder!

Firstly, we didn't get lost finding our apartment!! Yes, there are several lifts to use as the complex is so wide, but after the first day with suitcases, we used the stairs and its a very easy complex to find your way around. These apartments are ideally located for the port of Puerto Mogan which in itself is beautiful. There is a supermarket immediately opposite the hotel which sells everything you'll need (not open on Sundays) and then the port is a very short stroll away. You get a nice welcome drink on arrival, and we had emailed in advance asking to be high up, which they honoured! Only negatives for us (couple in early thirties) is that the port is very quiet. We didn't want loud thumping nightlife, but a couple of lively bars would have been nice. Its a very gentile resort, and if you like keeping up with the news, then the tv is perfect as the only English channels are BBC World and CNN!!! The walls are very thin so the screaming child next door woke us up each morning with her chorus of 'mama, mama' at 6am, but other than that, the apartments are huge! Amazing size balconies (some sun about 10ish in the morning, then mostly between 3pm and 6pm when it dips below the mountain opposite), with two sun loungers and a table and chairs for meals. The kitchen area is perfectly equipped for cooking in (we did a couple of times as that way wine is cheaper!!) and there is a living room area too. The bedrooms are twin beds pushed together, as in most European Hotels/Apartments. All in all, we highly recommend this complex and would go back for another week.

Me, my husband and our son aged 4 years spent a week at this hotel in February-March 2011. Our aim was sun, beach and relaxation, as we come from Northern Norway where these things are more or less absent...Spent a lot of time searching for location and hotel. We weren`t disappointed - we all had a fantastic week! In the following I`ll sum up our impressions. LOCATION: Puerto Mogan is a small town located south-southwest. Nice place to go in the winter, not so much wind as in Maspalomas/Playa del Ingles etc. Distance from airport is about 65 km - if you arrive at night, have a taxi as the bus will take forever (2,5 hours). Very quiet town, so if you are looking for nightlife this is not the place to go. In fact, the restaurants and bars are closing at about 10.30 pm. But if you just want to relax and enjoy the sun, it`s perfect. Highly recommended if you have small children - the main street leading down to the beach/town from the hotels Cordial Mogan Valle and Cordial Mogan Playa is completely without traffic, and the little ones can run a bit on their own. If you have teenagers/older children, the place might be a bit boring. Beach is very nice, fine sand from the Sahara desert, no waves. Lunch with drinks in the restaurants close to the beach costs about 10 euro per head, dinner is more expensive. I can`t tell so much about activities etc., as we didn`t take part in these - but I know there is lots of opportunities (boat trip to Tenerife, surfing, guided tour in a submarine, jeep safari etc.) HOTEL: We had a 2-bed apartment, with our son sleeping on the bed sofa in the livingroom. This worked out absolutely fine - the apartment is very spacious and there isn`t a problem with four persons living together. Beds in the bedroom are a bit hard, but we still slept well - no noise or traffic. Plenty of wardrobe space in the bedroom. Bathroom spacious with shower and a bath tub, always plenty of hot water and good pressure. Large balcony with two sunbeds, four chairs and a table, facility for drying clothes and even a shower. The apartment was clean - of course not so clean as most people have it in their homes, but very clean compared to many other places. Daily cleaning was fine, carried out five times a week, not Thursday and Sunday. Towels were changed two times, bed sheets one time. In the winter it might be smart to bring a warm pj as the blankets are not so warm. No airconditoin, only fans, but this was adequate in February. The sun reached our balcony at about 12.30 pm and stayed until 6.00 pm. Our apartment was in the southern part of the complex. I think you will get less sun if you live in the northern part, because the hotel is located in a valley, with high mountains around. We were half board (but the apartment is well equipped and self-catering is no problem, no oven though). Breakfast was absolutely excellent, plenty of choices. Dinner was terrible. The children`s food (spaghetti, pizza, hot dogs, chips etc) was quite cold, and the chips was hardly fried. For the adults you could have entrecote/meat or fish grilled on the spot, but as we all know no meat is done in two minutes unless you want a tartar (it was just like chewing the sole of a shoe). Terrible. There was also a buffet - plenty of tasty salads and vegetables, but only one/two pots of meat (chicken wings, gulasch etc) or fish, and when these were empty, they were never refilled (and believe me, they were empty after five minutes - because there was nothing else to eat). Dessert was ok, especially the ice cream. You pay for the drinks you have for dinner - we only had sparkling water, as we thought the food was so bad it wasn`t worth wasting money on wine or beer... Drinks in the hotel were expensive, almost like at home...but there is a nice supermarket (HiperDino) just across the street, so we chose our cava and beer from there. The bar at the hotel was very quiet, maybe only one our two couples every night. Entertainment every night, but I can`t say anything about the quality. Minidisco for the kids, although it didn`t start until 8-8.30 pm. Daytime there were activities for kids at the pool side. For adults there is daily yoga/stretching, water gym and water polo. We didn`t check out the spa or gym. Service was excellent - there was never a problem, no matter what we asked for. Staff were friendly and polite, always smiling and doing "high five" with the kids. Pools very nice and clean, as the rest of the pool areas. There is a pool bar open in the afternoon, and there are machines providing ice cream, drinks and snacks just by the pool side (ice cream machine was, however, empty after two days and it never got refilled). Distance from hotel to beach is about 800m-1000m. We had a fantastic holiday and would love to go back, hopefully the dinner will improve...

Stayed here over the half term holiday and had a lovely relaxing stay. On arrival it was a glass of champers for the adults and orange juice for the kids in reception. Very good English spoken by the staff as usual putting my Spanish to shame - I will do those night classes!!!! I`ll start with the 2 moans - The complicated layout takes some getting used to eg lifts going to some levels but not all, the 3 pools on 3 different levels, (it took nearlt a week for some of my party to find their way round fully!!!). For self catering the cooking facilities are very basic, 2 electric hobs and a microwave oven so it was a good job we ate out every evening. Entertainment was available although we managed to resist. Apartments were nice and clean, ceiling fans instead of air con which in February was fine. Piping hot water and very powerful showers. Nice big balconies with an outside cold shower. Pools were clean with 2 out of 3 heated. Only problem there was German couple who didn't like getting splashed when in the water!!!! Location is lovely, 12 minute walk along a lovely pedestrian walkway down to the small beach and lovely harbour with an abundance of good quality restaurants and bars. Hyper Dino (supermarket) across from the apartments came in very useful but allow for some crazy long queues. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel for families with younger kids, as there is not alot about for teens.

This is a large, but fairly quiet aparthotel. Service from the reception is very good, and the receptionists seem to speek english, german and scandinavian in addition to spanish. Finding your way around this hotel, however, feels like walking around in the maze of the minotaur, so be prepared to use a couple of days to learn the way to your room, the pool, the reception and so on. Walking distance to some of the rooms is quite long, so be sure to ask for a room close to the reception and pools if you are walking impaired. The apartments (we had a 2-room apartment) are spacious, clean and well kept. Large balconys with sunbeds and shower (!) Sun from about 11 AM to 6 PM. Beds are quite hard. Cleaning 5 days a week (not thursday or sunday). Satellite-TV in rooms with spanish, french, german, dutch and some international channels (BBC News, CNN, Eurosport). The hotel has 3 pools of which 2 are heated. 1 has a separate kids pool, this can be a bit noisy, the other 2 are very quiet. During our stay a lot of the sunbeds were not functioning properly, and little was done to fix them.. There are eating options in the hotel. We didn't try the breakfast, but the lunch bar was ok, the evening buffet was quite dull. Would recommend eating out. Hotel has a small spa (didn't try it) and a small gym. 2 tennis courts. Large supermarked right outside the hotel. 10 minute stroll to get "downtown" and to the beach. All in all a nice stay. Puerto Mogan is a great place for everyone except those who want to party all night. Hotel more than good enough, but not excellent. Would not mind coming back. Pros: -quiet -spacious apartments and balconys -friendly staff Cons: -large walking distances -confusing room/floor/elevator organization -hard beds -Wi-fi only in reception and lunchbar area

We travelled independently during half term week. The resort is ideal for a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of larger resorts. Very picturesque marina surrounded by numerous restaurants with lots of choice if you prefer to eat out. We found the one bedroom apartment to be spacious and is cleaned nearly every day. Plenty of wardrobe space. Very large twin beds which are pushed together and large sofa bed in living area. Beds were quite firm. No air conditioning but large ceiling fan in bedroom and dining area. Not a problem in February as temperature night and day very comfortable. Portable air con is available for hire but we didn't need it. Dining table is in kitchen area leading to a sitting area with TV..English channels are BBC World News, CNN, a Disney Channel. There is Eurosport too. Very large balcony with table chairs and two sun beds. A small point is there were no mugs or wine glasses, just small cups and tumblers. We always managed to get a sunbed by one of the pools, although many of the sun beds were broken, as the backs wouldn't prop up..One afternoon I tried about 8 or 9 and they were all broken, then one actually broke as I sat down. Fortunately I was un-injured and complained at reception due to frustration at not finding a decent sun bed. The management apologised, sent a member of staff to me with a brand new sun bed and later that evening sent up a bottle of wine to our apartment. That's customer service! In relation to the lifts you have to keep in view that these apartments are built in steps into the hillside so impossible to have one lift going from bottom to top so you have to go up in stages. A small sacrifice if you want the best views. The apartments are a 15 minute stroll from the beach and marina where the best restaurants are. It is a pleasant walked and is paved almost all the way. There is a taxi stand if you do not want to walk back. In conclusion..a lovely resort, spacious and clean apartment, friendly staff..We had a lovely, relaxing week.

This is our second time to stay at the Cordial Mogan Valle Apartments. Apart from an initial problem of requesting the same apartment as last time but being given a completely different one (not the Cordial Mogan's fault - our tour operator's fault) our stay was a very pleasant one. My thanks to Marcos for sorting out the mistake as quickly as was possible, given that the complex was fully booked. I have stayed in three apartments at this stage and they have all been very clean, well equipped, with excellent showers, hairdryers that work, good quality kitchen utensils, coffee-maker, etc. In fact, my only complaint would be the cork screw (very difficult to use) and the absence of wine glasses. Drinking a nice bottle of wine from a heavy tumbler style glass is not quite right. The balconies are great - very large with two sun loungers as well as table and four chairs. Very relaxing. We spent a lot of time on the balcony. The 'Cordial' has three swimming pools - two at ground level and one on the third floor and although we have never used them, they always looked very clean with plenty of sun loungers. The reception staff were friendly and helpful and 'out' to please their customers - the complex is relatively new (built in 2008) and I think that in these recessionary times, they want it to do well. We will definitely go back again but I hope they don't become 'too pricey' in the meantime. Marie - 58 Dublin

After reading lots of reviews we booked direct. Excellent booking no problems. The suite was large and very clean but needs updating, bathroom large and spacious but again tiles need updating.The bedroom is a good size with lots of wardrobe space and good lighting, the sheets are changed every few days but the bed covers are old fashioned and need replacing. The lounge area is again clean but the furniture is not wipe clean and therefore some needs replacing due to wear and tear. The balcony and furniture is lovely spacious and set out well. Our room was quiet although near the pool on first floor I would not have wanted to be on the ground floor. We went half board and although there was plenty of choice at the buffet breakfast and dinner I feel that maybe with a little more inventiveness it could be better, the staff service at meal time was excellent. The immediate area is lovely with a useful supermarket opposite open late and on Sundays. A walkway down to the main town area with marbled paving and palm trees is absolutely delightful. Puerto Mogan is a lovely small harbour with plenty of reasonabley priced places to eat. I would go back again to the hotel. If this hotel made some small improvements it could be extremely good.

Ê' stato bello, proprio bello. Il personale ECCEZIONALE, molto cordiali e disponibili per aiutarti al massimo. Gli appartamenti spaziosi e funzionali e quindi molto bene utilizzabili con bambini. Ineteressante la pulizia delle camere giornaliere ed il cambio asciugamani ogni 2 gg. Bella la terrazza sfruttata tantissimo. Buona la colazione, un pò standart la cena.. ma non fa niente... . Si è a pochi min. di cammino da una bella spiaggia, calda e poco ventosa e in una zona piacevole. C 'è anche un pò di animazione, non troppo ma il giusto per coinvolgere un pò i bamibini e i ragazzi. Interessante la zona SPA.. Belle piscine. Lo consiglio sicuramente a famiglie che hanno voglia di stare un pò in tranquillità. Consiglio noleggio Auto.

We arrived at Las Palmas airport expecting the transfer to the resort to be as stated 45mins,in fact it took us 2 hrs 30mins.This was because ours was the last drop. When we did arrive the staff at the Cordial were very pleasant & the offer of a glass of cava seemed to dull the pain of the journey.The apartment was great, very spacious & the balcony offered everything for the 'al fresco'feel.We didn't opt to eat in the resturant at the apartments after hearing that the food was cold & i thought the resturant was lacking in atmosphere.The harbour was loverly, plenty of resturants although the prices reflected the fact the resort was populated by Scandanavians & Germans.The bus service is great & is easy & cheap to visit other resorts,although Puerto Mogan is the best. It is a quiet resort so don't go if you are lookiing for plenty of nightlife.But for us it was just right.One downside is if the weather is poor it can be a bit boring & the fact that out of 22 chanels offered on the TV only 2 are in English.

We stayed for 3 nights in Jan 11 after spending 4 nights in Las Palmas. We chose Puerto do Mogan as the quietest resort on the South coast, hoping for some winter sunshine - we were not disappointed! The apartment was very spacious and well equipped. There was lots of space - sitting area with settee and chairs; dining area in very adequate kitchen; outside terrace with dining furniture and sun loungers and spacious bathroom and bedroom. There was a large supermarket very close by, so self catering would have been easy. We, however ate down by the sea - good, but more expensive than Las Palmas! The apartment was excellent. If we ever go back, we would stay there again.
“Huge and nice apartments on the outskirts of Puerto de Mogan”

First the destination: Puerto de Mogan is by far the most charming and interesting of Gran Canaria's south coast resorts. There is an actual, real, pre-tourist village on the mountainside next to the harbour, and the "new town" by the harbour has the feel of a real town (although it isn't really) – very different from Puerto Rico or Playa del Ingles. There is a good selection of restaurants and the beach is nice (imported yellow sand from Sahara). It attracts a somewhat older crowd, and some might find it a bit too quiet – we went with our 6 month old son, so we weren’t exactly there to party. Puerto de Mogan is gradually expanding inland along the valley floor, and this apartment complex is located about 1 km. from the beach on the outskirts of the town. The surrounding area is still not fully developed (and given the current crisis in Spain, it will probably take a while for that to happen) and thus has a bit of an empty feel (but in no way dodgy or unsafe). However, there is a nice, wide promenade leading from Cordial Mogan Valle to the centre, making it an easy and comfortable 15 min. walk. The apartment was huge and appeared recently furbished, with an equally huge terrace. Excellent value for money. We had an ok view across the valley, but no sea view. A few of the upper tier apartments might have sea view, but if you want to enjoy looking at he sun setting in the Atlantic from your terrace, this is not the place. There are plenty of amenities, three nice pools, and the restaurant and snack bar serve decent food, although we mostly had dinner in the town or cooked ourselves (there is a huge supermarket 50m from the reception - the peculiarly named Hiper Dino). The children’s entertainment at night was loud and horrible (for us, probably not the kids), but easily avoided. To sum up: You get plenty of square meters and very nice facilities close to the nicest town in southern Gran Canaria, so there is plenty to recommend. However, if we go back to Puerto de Mogan, we would probably consider staying in the town centre instead – although we might end up concluding that Cordial Mogan Valle is still the better option.

We arrived on the 3rd January to a lovely warm welcome from Pedro on reception, after reading other reviews was slightly dissapointed that we didn't have the huge balcony others mentioned, however this was compensated by the fact that we were right near the pool on the ground level which was lovely and quiet and very convenient. I agree with all the positives others have mentioned mogan is beautiful, we took a trip to neighbouring puerto rico and couldn't wait to get back!! I think the only reason this is not 4 star is the lack of small finishing touches, such as, shampoo's, pool towels etc. All the staff were very helpful and friendly and could teach the staff at 'posher' hotels a thing or two about customer service, for example we were asked to move to a smaller table for dinner after initially being allocated a larger one and given a free bottle of wine for the inconvenience even though we didn't mind anyway, We had a bit of a shock on getting to the airport and being met with grumpy staff after our week at the mogan valle. Our only dissapointment was that we were not staying longer!!

Excellent check in apartment very modern, clean and spacious. The balcony was excellent including loungers and a shower. Apartment very well equiped with all you need and very clean. Staff at reception very helpful and friendly although watch the bar staff 1 guy a bit dodgy tried to do me on first day! Dont drink their tea or coffee (not good). The spa was brill I had a mud wrap which was very good and not too pricey If you are self catering you must try the La Capuchino restaurant it is excellent and was our favourite. Also the Irish bar does the best irish coffee I have ever had. Overall a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday would go back

We visited in November, for the third consecutive year. It remains a very good place for a self-catering holiday in the Canaries, so long as you like it quiet. The apartments were however full for the first time in our experience and this makes it harder to get the room that you want. The complex is also beginning to look a bit tired in places, so I hope the quiet winter months are put to good use! Eat at Le Grand Blue, Caravaggio and get takeaway from the Taj opposite.

Clean apartments with good sized kitchen, living room and nice interior. Good sized bathroom and kitchen has microwave, oven, hob etc. No air con just fans but got the hang of pulling the balcony blind down before the sun came out. Great size balcony with dining table and sun lounger. I recommend asking for the top floor as you get better views and no-one is above you so you get a bit more privacy. Supermarket next to hotel (Dino) abit pricey better to go down the road to the Spar. Staff friendly, room was cleaned every few days. 3 pools, very busy. Only negative was the adult pool was full of children so couldn't really relax on the pool side. Too many lifts and finding your room can be difficult a bit like a maze. The apartments have a spa (10 Euro) very good but you can also use the facilities in the next cordial hotel. Good location - great views of the valley and the old town. Walking towards the beach and town is just a lovely 10 minute walk. Restaurants are average to pricey but you need to check prices of drinks as they can be expensive especially if you think you getting a good priced meal. A great restaurant bu the beach is recommended called Safron. We had a hire car so in the evenings we drove to Playa De Ingles and other resorts as Mogan can be quiet in the evening. positives: good location and relaxing - clean appartments negative: children in the adult pool

We had an excellent holiday in these apartments in the first week of December. The apartment was modern, well-furnished, clean and comfortable. We agree entirely with the favourable reviews. Warning, the apartments do not have air conditioning. This was no problem in December, but might be an issue in summer. Also, we had one buffet dinner in the restaurant, which was adequate, but no more. Puerto de Mogan is a fairly quiet, attractive resort. Self-catering suited us very well, because there are excellent restaurants in the beach and harbour area (a 15 minute gentle walk). It was our first visit to Gran Canaria and we were not sure what to expect. Puerto de Mogan scores well on ambience, but might not be the best resort if you want to do a lot of touring, because you would usually have a 45-minute drive back to Maspalomas before you started. Also if, like my wife, you suffer from travel sickness, the winding cliff road between Puerto Rico and Puerto de Mogan is not ideal. We travelled on a package with Thomson. The legroom on Thomson flights is appalling, significantly worse than Easyjet. I don't think I could contemplate a long-haul flight with them. However, on the way out we narrowly escaped being delayed by snow, and on the way back by air traffic controllers' strike, so that we were glad enough to have a package rather than having to fend for ourselves. The resort rep was pleasant and helpful. Our two best meals were in La Bruschetta (behind the beach) and El Capuchino (just before the harbour). The La Bruschetta whole bass baked in salt, and the El Capuchino mixed plate of locally caught fish are both highly recommended. A bonus during the week we were there was that an excellent Jazz Band, the Seven Stars of Jazz played every evening by the harbour in the open air and free to listen to or dance to. Thomson succeeded in selling us two excursions. We thought beforehand that the walking trip with HappyHiking/HappyBiking was overpriced, but afterwards felt it was well worth it. We had an excellent full-on day with delightful and informative guides Manfred (Austrian) and Jose (Belgian). On the other hand, the Island Delights Premium tour was a mild disappointment. The luxurious 8-seater people carrier is actually one of a convoy of ordinary minibuses, with the guide giving a commentary from the front bus by radio. The visibility from the back of a minibus is quite poor, you can't ask the guide a question, the drivers have no command of English e.g. don't know what 'sick' translates as, and the convoy has little flexibility. At 13.15, we stood around for more than 20 minutes at a crater, we realised afterwards to wait for the lunch stop restaurant to clear. Then, when we reached the interesting historical town of Teror, to catch up we were given just 20 minutes to do the church, the museum and the historical area. We saw and learnt much more about the island on the other excursion, driving to and from the hike. We chose south Gran Canaria for winter sunshine and were not disappointed, although we arrived to high winds and rain. Overnight there was an impressive storm with continuous thunder, lightning, rain and wind, but by morning it had cleared. The rest of the week was warm, dry and often sunny, though several days the mountains were in mist and it was probably raining in the northwest of the island.

The apartment is lovely and felt very spacious. Good facilities for cooking and having a brew. The balcony is just perfect. Found the staff very friendly - you're greeted with a glass of cava when booking in. You are close to everything. Right beside the supermarket for all the essentials and not to far of a walk for the beach and marina. Only negatives were that we found a lot of broken chairs down at the pool area, that said we didn't bring it to anyone's attention. We only found the cafe/restaurant on the last day. We both found our food very salty. Overall, a brilliant place to stay.

Read all the reviews before we booked, it was even better than we expected. We requested a high up room, which we got, wonderful views and privacy on the balcony, which was huge, plenty of sun from midday onwards but shady in the morning. Apartment and hotel very clean and contemporary, but as a previous reviewer said, why oh why is there only one socket in the kitchen!!! Didn't eat in the hotel so can't comment on the food, not enough information about entertainment etc. Puerto Mogan itself is beautiful and seemed fairly quiet, plenty of good places to eat, some cheap and cheerful and others more expensive. Brits far outnumbered by other nationalities. A grande beer ranged in price from 2.5 to 4 euros, wine similarly ranged in price. Basically if a bar or restaurant hasn't got the price on show , it will be expensive, so beware! Took the local bus to Puerto Rico, only 1.5 euros each, but beware , as soon as you get there you are pestered by 'time share type touts' all day. You also have to pay 50cents to use a loo! Lovely walk round to Amadores . Took the ferry back to Mogan (6euros each). Friday is market day in Mogan so unless you want to buy a load of imported tat and get crushed ( a bit like North Weald market if anyone knows that!), either stay by the pool or on the balcony in your hotel or leave town for the day!!! Plenty of shops in town with better quality goods. We found plenty to do for a week but if you stayed for 2 would probably need a hire car for some of the time.

Acabo de regresar de pasar una semana en estos apartamentos y mi experiencia ha sido fantástica. Buscabamos sol y tranquilidad y hemos encontrado justo ésto. Mogán tiene un clima increible y la zona del hotel es muy tranquila. Si queríamos más jaleo nos íbamos a pasear por Puerto Rico, Maspalomas, Playa del Inglés... El personal del hotel es super atento. Muchas gracias a Jasmine por servirnos todos los días con una gran sonrisa en la boca. A Gosia, porque mis hijas se enamoraron de ella y lo pasaron fenomenal en el miniclub y en la minidisco. Tiene una mano increible con los críos, aunque no sepa hablar español, la entendían y la adoraban. Conocimos al chico que estaba anteriormente los primeros dias y nada que ver. Eso sí, un consejo, una persona es muy poco para animar. La habitación nos gustó mucho y estuvimos muy cómodos. La comida está muy bien, aunque cogimos pensión completa y resultaba un poco repetitivo. Creo que es mejor ir en media pensión y apañarse para comer con la cocina de los apartamentos. Justo enfrente hay un supermercado Hiperdino con muy buenos precios. Probé el SPA del Cordial Mogán Playa (está al lado) y fue una experiencia super relajante... está genial!. En recepción nos recomendaron ir a ver Palmitos Park con las niñas y quedamos toda la familia encantados. Totalmente recomendable!!. No sé cuando volveremos a Gran Canaria, pero volveríamos de nuevo a éate hotel.

I have just returned from 1 weeks holiday at these apartments. It is the first time that my husband and I have gone on a self-catering package holiday and we were not disappointed. The apartment was large, clean and furnished well in a modern style. The kitchen equipment seemed brand new, although we could have done with an extra electric socket here - only one, so you couldn't boil the kettle and use the toaster at the same time! Bathroom had a seperate shaving/make-up mirror, which is always a bonus but the hairdryer was a bit dodgy. (I took my own as other reviewers have commented on this). We didn't eat at the restaurants on-site at all during our stay, mainly because we didn't realise they were there! They are hidden behind an unmarked door near the lifts and if you don't pass there during a serving time you would never know that they were there! The port is the best place to eat and there are more than enough restaurants to choose from. Our favourite was 'El Capuchino' just behind the port. Food and service here was excellent. However Puerto de Mogan is not cheap. A pint of local draught beer is 3.5 euros everywhere in this resort while along at Puerto Rico it's only 1.5 euros. A meal for 2 with a bottle of wine worked out on average between 50 - 60 euros. However we had a lovely holiday, with a trip up to Las Palmas by public bus, which takes 2 hours but was well worth it to see a working capital city and the old cultural centre and a trip by water-taxi to Puerto Rico. A walk up the hill opposite the apartments isn't as hard as it looks and the views from the top are great. Weather was fab and lying by the infinity pool was quiet and relaxing. I could go back tomorrow!

We have just returned after a week at these apartments. We enjoyed our stay and overall would recommend them, but with some reservations. We were allocated a ground-floor apartment, which means we got a small outside patio with a table and chairs and nothing else. As all the upper-level apartments have large balconies with sun loungers, an outdoor shower, and so on, we feel we should really have been charged a lower fee for this. Definitely, if you're booking here, put in a request for an upstairs apartment. Our apartment itself was spacious and well-equipped. We did just find the finish left a bit to be desired. Among other things, one bedroom light was hanging out of the ceiling, the front door would only close if you slammed it hard, and the bedroom door wouldn't close at all. Two of the towel rails were also coming away from the wall, though to be fair one was fixed during our stay. As others have noted, there is no aircon in the apartments (or anywhere in the complex). We found the ceiling fans fine for the end of October, but would agree that in high summer it might get a bit uncomfortable. The towels and bedding were both changed once during our week's stay, which seems to us barely acceptable (it was less times than promised by the man at reception). The apartment was cleaned four times in all. We stayed on a self-catering basis, but tried the buffet restaurant on a couple of evenings. We found the food excellent and varied. One note of warning, though - the hours of service are rigorously enforced! We went to the 7.45 to 9 pm sitting. The section where your choice of fish or meat is cooked while you wait closed at 8.30. All the main course buffet items were being removed by 8.45, and the desserts by 9 pm. If you turned up at 8.30 or later expecting a three-course meal, you would have to eat very fast to get it in! The entertainment seemed very much orientated towards children. As a child-free, middle-aged couple we might have appreciated a few more adult activities, e.g. quizzes, craft or cooking demonstrations, language lessons, and so on. Some evening entertainment was provided in the snack bar next to the buffet restaurant. The first time we went, this was a bird show. The actual 'show' was very short, and the main purpose seemed to be to persuade parents to get their children's photo taken with one of the birds. We didn't stay long. On the second occasion, the entertainment was provided by a singer/keyboard-player. He was actually quite good, but had to compete with a group of over-excited children led by a member of the animation team playing noisy games in front of him. We thought this was a bit disrespectful to the musician. It certainly meant we couldn't really relax and enjoy the music. We might have gone to the entertainment more often, but there seemed to be no way of finding out what was on. Certainly, nobody at reception knew when we asked. A noticeboard or daily bulletin - as provided at other places we have stayed - would have been appreciated. As keen swimmers, we checked out all three pools in the complex. On the third floor there is a small but attractive infinity pool, with good views over the mountains. It did get quite busy and noisy here, however. We spent more of the time at the main pool, which happened to be a short distance from our apartment. This is a good size, and has plenty of sunbeds around it. There is also a pool bar, although this frequently closed early during our stay. According to the hotel information it is open till 5 pm, but we found it was shut by 4.30 or even 4 - invariably, just when we wanted to use it! The reception area has free wifi and paid-for Internet access. We found the reception staff extremely helpful and friendly. Free orange juice, champagne or water were offered to us on arrival, and were very much appreciated. Contrary to what is claimed in some holiday brochures, the apartments are not 'on the beach'. The latter is ten minutes brisk walk away, and the attractive harbour just past that. There are plenty of nice places to eat out in this area; we liked Mozart, a friendly German (or Austrian?) run restaurant, and El Patio Canario. The latter is a slightly more expensive place, which impressed us straight away by producing a huge basket of garlic bread with tomatoes and raw garlic in it. At the end of our (excellent) meal here, the waiter left a large bottle of honey rum on our table, with the invitation to help ourselves, which we did, several times... Overall, we think the Cordial Mogan Valle Apartments offer a good-value holiday in a quiet and (in parts anyway) attractive resort. They are probably ideally suited to families with young children. Those seeking a bit more in the way of night-life and non-child-orientated entertainment might be a bit disappointed, though. And do remember to request an upper-floor apartment!

Ideal for families with young children, the mini disco was fun for my 4 year old and the daytime activities were helpful to keep her from being bored, painting, drawing, face painting always something different most days. Gosia was very friendly with the children I wondered how she kept her energy levels up. The staff were very friendly in all areas from reception through to the cleaning staff, a bit more choice on the halfboard evening meal would of been nice but I found myself trying new dishes and found them very pleasent. The only fault I did find was there wasnt enough space around the pool for more sunloungers and people did put there towels out at breakfast time, we ended up doing the same just so that we got 2 lounges together. But all in all a good holiday, great sized apartments for a family of 4.

Appartments are easily visible as you arrive in the town, easy 10 minute walk to the centre. Good sized supermarket opposite. Hotel Reception on the whole friendly and good free Wifi connection there. Appartments are a very good size, large terrace area. We were in Block G which was at the far end of the complex and quieter. On arrival the lifts and stairs are a bit confusing (you could always recognise the newbies by their slightly panicked "where the hell am I" look), but once memorised you get used to it. Appartment very clean and was cleaned every other day. Swimming pools nice, well maintained, and although there was a bit of "towels on the sunloungers to reserve them'" going on, you could normally find one. I really liked the town itself, the harbour area is very attractive. As for restaurants, we walked over to the other side of the harbour for some lovely fresh fish at Cafradia, and also really liked Saffron on the beach front. We hired a car for the week so enjoyed a wander round Las Palmas, the capital city, and along the coast. The other resorts have a different feel - Playa del ingles seems more high rise hotels and tourist bars/shops/restaus. Maspalomas has lots of four and five star hotels and areas of branded shops (Esprit, Guess, Mango etc). So overall a good choice of resort if you're not into loud music, bars and nightclubs. Appartments good value and well located. Weather in our week was 25C each day and sunny, so Gran Canaria is a good choice for an Autumn break. I think you'd need to drive into the centre of the island to get more picturesque views and scenery. The coastline area is scrubland, rocky outcrops etc.

We are quite fussy when it comes to accomodation and usually opt for a villa. However, we were really quite pleased with the Cordial Mogan Valle for a variety of reasons. Firstly, its a quiet resort with a lovely beach which our daughter enjoyed playing on and the apartments are a ten minute stroll away. Secondly, the rooms are spacious, modern and very clean, thirdly the staff clearly go out of their way to make sure you have a pleasant stay, nothing appears too much trouble. Our room was situated on the lower floor in block G which is by the quieter pool. The weather was fabulous and our terrace was fully shaded which was great. All the balconies/terraces do have sun blinds too. We did not eat in the restaurants during our stay. Now for my lttle moans, the gym opens at 1100hrs-1900hrs. We would have used this facility daily had it opened earlier or closed later. It looked great and was well equipped but the opening times are wrong. We were out and about by 1100hrs each day and still out at 1900hrs. Also, the spa prices were expensive approx fifty euros for a pedicure when the salon across the road charged eighteen. There is only one very small childrens pool, with some novelty features. We ventured there once, its clearly the busier side fo
