“FANTASTIC.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2009

This was our first trip without the children so picked the Cordial Mogan playa by chance and what a fantastic hotel it is. From the moment you first enter the reception...well its just fantastic. The layout of the hotel is very good with good disabled access in the form of ramps and elevators. my wife and i had a ground floor room on the west side of the hotel over looking some of the gardens and it had all you needed...nice large bathroom with shower / bath, sink, mirror and w/c, the bedroom contained double bed, tables, chairs and TV though the English channels were limited to the news channels but the tv could take cd"s and like the hotel the room was spotless with maid service every day, the hotel gardens are extreamly good as is the swimming pools, bars and resturants that are within the hotel complex.
We went for the half board option with breakfast and evening meal and the food and service was just superb !
All i can say is that this hotel and resort of Mogan is Just FANTASTIC ! we got back to rainy old England early Sunday and i booked up straight away for 2010....try it, you will not be disapointed.

Irecently spent two weeks at Cordial Mogan Playa and cannot reccomend this hotel highly enough. It is set in the most breathtaking surroundings where waterfalls flow through the hotel itself.The bedrooms are luxurious and the hotel is spotless. The staff are professional and so corteous.The choice of food at the buffet is fabolous.I am already looking forward to my return trip!!

My husband and I had never been to Gran Canaria before, but we will certainly go again and back to the same hotel! Everything was brilliant, from the cleanliness of the rooms and hotel in general to the beautiful landscaped gardens, waterfalls and resort itself. We agreed at the end of the holiday that it was the best holiday ever. The only fault that the English programmes were extremely limited - not that we went to watch television, but while getting ready for dinner for example, it would have been nice to watch something. At the beginning of our stay we could get Sky news, but from 1st October this wasn't possible and the BBC world news was such terrible reception that we couldn't watch it. Only a small gripe though and did not spoil anything.

Thanks to all hotel staff for giving us a fantastic holiday - we will be back next year - promise!

We have never returned to the same hotel & resort three times for our summer holiday but the Mogan Playa changed that and we don't regret going back. Everything about it is first class and the beautiful surroundings and pleasant staff ensure that your stay is memorable.

Just returned after 11 nights from what can only be described as paradise! I didn't want to leave and was totally jealous of the new arrivals. I consider myself to be really fussy and we never go to the same place twice but this hotel ticks all the right boxes.. Lets start with the spectatular scenary. The hotel is situated in a mountain revine with a backdrop that would not look out of place in a Clint Eastwood movie. There is only one road in and out of Mogan and its etched into the mountains and runs along the coast (a bit hair raising in places) but the local bus/coach drivers seem to know the road well so not really a problem. We were given a warm welcome and a nice glass of fizzy. The desk staff were proffessional, efficient and very friendy. We were then taken to our room. The rooms are spacious, furnished to a very high standard with a lovely large bathroom that is well equiped (even a shower gel dispenser). It was dark so we couldn't really see much of the grounds. Next morning we were gobsmacked!! The ground of this hotel are fab!! Tropical trees, plants, exotic flowers, tiled walkways, water features, ponds, even a bird aviery full of pretty canaries and its own chapel in the gardens. The pools were spotless and we noticed that the pool staff continually sample the water. No trouble gettng a sunbed, plenty to choose from. We were Full Board and the food was plentiful. Lots of choice, breakfast was a treat, so much to choose from. Buffet lunch is served in an old colonial styled house, really lovely to sit outside on the veranda by the waterfall. Dinner was good too, lots of choice and the salads were delicious. Entertainment was varied, some nights excellant!! Loved Mamma Mia, so funny!! Will leave out the hotel decoy, let you find that out for yourselves... but brace yourself, your in for a treat!! Mogan is beautiful. The harbour is quaint, so pretty with its flowers. Lots of restuarants to choose from. The beach is small but adequant and its so peaceful. The sea is a bit sloped and does seem to get deep quickly so be careful with little ones. Market day on Friday is good, be ready to haggle.. We got 10 euros off most of what we brought.
Excursions: Camel Capers was an experience.. had a giggle. Highly recommend Garbos.. Fantasic show!! We paid the extra and went Gold, free drinks all night so well worth the extra.
Holiday type: If your looking for a knees up in a british type holiday resort then this is not the place for you. If your yearning for the ultimate chill out in beautiful tranquil surroundings then you have struck GOLD!
Would we go back? Just try and stop us... already booked for next year!!!

Yet again we had a great stay at Cordial Playa having last stayed in March 2009.
People say the 2nd visit to any hotel is never the same as the first, but i can honestly say that our second stay was even better. All the Staff are so friendly and polite.

We spend most days lazing around the pool and relaxing. Most afternoon we would meet up with animation team to play one of the sport events they do. Derek especially enjoyed playing Table Tennis with other guests .

We did the Hotel Tour which the Animation team organise each Friday. It was amazing to go under the hotel to see parts of the hotel guests dont see. Interesting to see how the salt is mixed in the water for the swimming pools. All the machinery for the Air conditioning. We went into the laundry and we all had a laugh using the machine to fold up the towels, it was harder than it looked. The staff all work very hard especially in the hot conditions, and where always smiling. We also went into the Kitchens they where imaculate and the smell of baking cakes made you mouth water. At the end of the tour we where presented with a glass of Cava which was a nice touch.

We ate in Restaurant most Lunch times and the food was very enjoyable, plenty of choice. The food in the evening was excellent and also had everything you could wish. I do not like Buffet as prefer to have my food served by waiter, but on occasions we did eat at the hotel in the evening we both enjoyed what we ate. If you do eat down in the harbour go to the "Berliner" , the food is amazing especially the homemade soups.

The only concern we have is outside of the Hotel. We have stayed In puerto De Mogan over the last 3 years and have noticed that the pedestrian area especially around the shopping centre is starting to look run down. Tiles cracked and not replaced, Loose tiles when walking down to the harbour. Graffiti on some of the walls. This is such a shame to see.

We are planning our next trip to return in Feb/March and cant wait. We often ask ourselves "Do we go somewhere else for a change?". The answer is always NO, although there are some other great hotels on the island, Not one of them would be able to tick all the boxes including location.

This hotel is amazing, absolute paradise. Nice sized pools with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas, very clean spacious rooms, plenty of choice at mealtimes and the staff are really friendly and genuinely happy to help with anything. They even had no objection to us using our own travel kettle. A huge amount of thought and planning has gone into this place, plants and flowers of all kinds and colours all over, but the real jaw dropper are the waterfalls and streams. They even have a waterfall inside just past reception. You often hear the phrase we could have stayed there forever, but we really could have. The only slight problem is the evening entertainment but if you are lucky like us and meet some wonderful people you won't notice too much. I guarantee you won't be disappointed with this hotel. 1 word of warning: If you go to the shopping centre opposite avoid the shop that sells clothing, electrical goods, bags etc. If you find later what you have bought is not right or faulty they won't give a refund. The other shops there are OK though.
