Lovers of Puerto de Mogan

Just read this article and thought i would share it with the "Lovers of Mogan ".....http://www.islandconnections.eu/ then click on "News" at the top of the page ,then click on Gran Canaria to the right of the page,and scroll down to headline "Plans Blocked"

I think Fussy57 at least will breathe a sigh of relief !!!!

Thanks for that oneleg. It would be a pity for such a beautiful place to be spoilt by overcrowding BUT, at the same time, if they don't do something about the now serious lack of entertainment in bars, I fear they will lose a lot of visitors.

To be away from all the hustle and bustle is one thing BUT to be in god's waiting room is something else!

We WILL return again to the Cordial hotel because it has so much to offer. It's just that after a hard day's eating, drinking and sunbathing it would be nice to have somewhere livelier to go in the evenings.

Surely such a nice place does not need nosiy bars with enterainement

this is what is attractive about the mogan. I think people will visit as their

are a lot of us who like quiet area with quiet bars.

It is easy enough to go to Poto Rica for entaintment.

I do enjoy going on holiday for relaxation

Hello again olnf,I read the article and thought here we go again.The councils here in ireland allowed the most historical and scenic places to be rezoned and now we have nothing short of a mess that we can not reverse.Mogan is unique as it is and to a point should be preserved .My only concern is will it be left behind as the local economy depends on tourism.A recent poster stated everthing was closed down before midnight ,like being in gods waiting room.Family members have said the same thing.We love mogan with a passion ,we had our wedding blessing there but it does need to progress as far as diversity is concerned.By that i do not mean irish and english bars popping up everywhere .The local council along with business owners need to sit down and debate how they together can maximise mogans potential as an alternative to other resorts.By that i mean if they were to source family friendly holiday makers, or mature holiday makers(40s and over) and allowed one or two bars to cater for people who would like to have a quiet drink in the beach area by night that was not spanish orientated,it might make a difference.My wife and i would love to stay in mogan not just visit by day .It is not as we like the bar scene but if staying for two weeks it would be nice to meet up with other people by night given a chance.nice to hear from you again onelegnofeet.

Hi Cumnor ,i did post a similar thing to what you have said last night but it would not accept it (??).Yes i do believe Fussy57 meant a similar thing ,by her previous posts i have an insight to what she likes .I dont think she or myself like you want another PR or PDI ,but just something a little later than 11 pm ,my reasoning behind this is not just to suit me but a few others i know is that during the summer months we tend to want to eat later and rather than just sitting on the balconies have a drink later on whilst it starts to cool down a little before retiring it would be nice to socialise in a bar ,restaurant with a little light entertainment .I first visited Mogan when it was first being developed ,since which they have built the squares where they sometimes hold the market when its not on the marina wall .When i saw this i thought please no not another over developed resort ,but i do feel in the economic climate that something (??) needs to be done .Yes others will disagree of that i am sure ,but if the buisness's fail and tourism drops (any further ) then i think it will start to show in Mogans up keep .They do look after the place ,its amazing how quickly the market is cleaned up after the hoards of visitors .so i think though i love Mogan ,until there is something beyond 11pm i shall have to remain staying in PR and visit Mogan .Dont mean to upset rosedavy 20 ,i know what they mean its what they love about it ,quite right to ,but i would hate Mogan to go the same way as a few areas of GC have gone oveer the last 2 years especially around Maspalomas and Melonares .I hope alls well Cumnor .Take care .

I am just back from Puerto de Mogan. There are 4 late bars in what is called bar street. On the street down from the little church. These bars are open until 3.00 in the morning. There is entertainment on in at least one of them every evening. For the size of PM it is more than sufficient. I would add that they were not busy. Quite a few locals there. Either nobody knows about them or the visitors do not come for entertainment. We watched many people heading back to the Cordial Hotel/Apartments around 10.30 p.m. when they could easily have visited this little street. So leave Puerto de Mogan as it is and if anyone needs nightclubs they will just have to pay out for a taxi or stay elsewhere. Lizmd

We stayed in P Mogan for the first time at Easter but had our teenagers with us. I say unfortunately because I wanted to go to visit quiet Spanish bars for a late night drink and listen to some music, but had to return to the apartments because the girls were bunched after their days in the water. We're going back in October without 'the crankies' and really looking forward to evenings sipping wine and emersing ourselves in Mogan. We spent 4 hours in PR and ran back to Mogan, delighted to be back (especially the teenagers). Do not and I stress DO NOT underestimate what follows when you give license to a night club. It isn't the club that's the problem - it's the drunken followers. If you really need to drink until dawn, then you've got the wrong destination!! Having said all that, I would like a little more music available in the restaurants and bars, but I'd be very choosey.

Lizmacd,i have not heard mention of these bars ,as i say i usually i stay in PR and visit Mogan .Not that i am a drinker but i do like to sit about later than 11 pm mainly because i only sleep for 2 hours , so maybe next time i visit Mogan i shall stay later to check these places out and then stay on other visits in Mogan ,as the hills in PR are getting a little to much now ,even though the taxis are inexpensive .

I would hate for Mogan to over developed and on the whole its fine as is ,but in ever changing times it does seem inevitable that things will change .I just hope its done sympathetically to a gorgeous place.Prior to the Cordial being built i read the up roar from many locals at that time complaining of over developing and when Mogan as you know it now was being built the few locals that lived in the area had the same thoughts .So fingers crossed for the future of Mogan .

Hi Liz ,I can not see a mention of nightclubs in any of the earlier posts ,I am just pointing out the fact that mogan needs to move forward constructively with ideas bought forward by all concerned with the area.Four bars not one of them busy,at least one of them with entertainment every evening.This is hardly inspiring holiday makers like myself who would prefer to avoid the noisier resorts while equally going somewhere where you can relax by day and have a sociable drink by night with other holiday makers.When we go on holiday we would like to have more options than you have described and that is why people are going back to the hotel at 10.30 pm.I do sincerely respect your opinion ,all i am trying to get across here is that Mogan can only benefit from opening up to new ideas ,and not turning it in to another PR.Changes can be made to the determent or betterment of mogan but with a bit of common sense and monitoring I personally think mogan can maintain its original character while encouraging more tourism.Glad we can exchange views.More importantly i am glad you enjoyed your holiday,regards cumnor.

Sorry Cumnor, I wasn't meaning to attack you. I know where you are coming from exactly I was only pointing out that there was an area with late bars and some entertainment.

I believe that there is already 4 nightclub spaces under the shopping market by the Cordial Mogan Hotel. Apparently one or either has tried on occasion to open but closed due to lack of interest. When the tunnel opens probably so will they but I wonder how the guests at the hotel will feel when all the entertainment is right on their doorstep. I have been informed by locals that there will never be a late entertainment licence permitted at the port or beach. My daughter gets married in the local church in October this year with a roof top reception at PLaya Mogan Hotel and a meal at Tu Casa Restaurant in the evening. The entertainment we have arranged has to finish at 11p.m. But this was the location my daughter wanted so the wedding begins at 2.00 and finishes at 11p.m. We can still buy drink but no music.
