“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Myself and 2 friends stayed for a week in the hotel on a half board basis. We had booked it all through a travel agent in Ireland, Falcon Travel. The agent was great in passing on our request for a south facing room, and 2 rooms interconnecting, all of which we got! I have stayed in many good hotels both in Europe and the Far East and the Cordial Mogan is way up there. The staff are SO efficient, friendly and helpful and there seems to be a very high morale amongst them all. The rooms are very well appointed, and my only real moan would be about the dining room, it is a real nightmare at breakfast....I would suggest trying to go for an early one before 9am, because if you leave it till later, some things will have run out!
On the half board, we were able to get a voucher for lunch instead in the little dining room beside the pool, again, I would recommend this as a nice alternative to always having supper in the dining room. I would definitely go back, and very much hope to do so!

Room Tip: We asked for a South facing room, which is lovely for evening sunshine, and I would also ask for a h...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

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

Room Tip: Some rooms have no sun, so ask for a high sunny room if that is what you want, and they really try t...

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

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

This is a lovely hotel with very lovely staff. I arrived at 12.30am after a long delay and no bag as Iberia had lost it!! The receptionist was so helpful, sorted everything out, offered me champagne at 12.45am, got me water and then asked her colleague to take me to the dining room, to get something to eat. I was then accompanied to my room to sleep soundly (every night). The room was larger than average and had a partial view of the pool. It didn't get the sun all day but that didn't matter. Internet connection was average. Breakfasts were great with plenty of choice and plenty of room to sit. Choice of food at Dinner was good but the dining room was hectic and staff not as friendly as at breakfast. Pool areas great, some sun bed reserving occurring. Great hikes possible across from the hotel and up the winding ravine road. Beach ten minutes walk. Pleasant village which is not too spoilt with over-development. A very relaxing holiday at a very good hotel. I would return!

Basically very nice , it is 4 star, needs perhaps some upgrades , food only average+ due perhaps to number of guests.

What is unique in my experience is the friendliness and proactive attitude of the staff. Unlike the earlier review I was cconstantly impressed by the friendliness and proactive work of everyone from cleaners to servers to front desk. At one point my wife had some concerns which they listened to sympathetically and within an hour had come up with an unexpected solution.

They also gave us very clear directions and ideas for visiting other locations.

I stay in (far too) many hotels and this one stands out in recent years because of the staff.

Room Tip: There is no sea view. Best location is upper floor with a view of the mountains where the changing l...
