“Another great vacation at Cordial Mogan Playa”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

This was third winter vacation at Cordial Mogan Playa for my wife and me. The high standard has been maintained. Excellent facilities, great staff always willing to help and a great place to stay for a relaxing holiday. It is always difficult to resist the excellent food! We don't normally return to the same vacation spot but this is the one exception!

Room Tip: Ask for a west or south facing room if you want sun on your balcony.

We have now stayed twice at this hotel - and we enjoy the hotel and its' surroundings as well: the mountains, the village, the beach and the atmosphere in general. The standard is quite good for a hotel offering all inclusive and the Mini Club for children was second to none with a very skilled and dedicated staff and with a lot of options for the kids during the day.

However, I think that the hotel management should consider three things carefully:

1) Since last year the sales efforts towards the guests seems to have increased a lot - now guests are approached much more than previously by sales persons wanting to sell cosmetics or treatments, photos or wanting participation in sports activities on the site. One day we were approached five times without showing any desire to seek contact - we just wanted our privacy like the other guests - and especially the photographers and the sports activitiy people were way too long to understand that we were not interested. It is not pleasant to have to be a bit unpolite to get rid of people - but we were there only for relaxing and enjoying ourselves. Sometimes during the week I felt that we were walking on a market place in Tunesia or Morocco with all those sales approches.

2) The food could especially at lunch be improved - but also in the evenings. If the food at lunch (we had Full Board Plus) were improved (recipies etc.), I am convinced that many more guests would choose this option. I suggest that the management force themselves to eat there every day for a week - then you would see changes coming up...!! Having said that, I must state that the lunch staff are wonderful! At the evening buffet there is a very fine selection and many options/choices - but the cooks are so careful not to use spices in their effort to cook dishes, they feel anyone can eat, that it all in the end (after a week) becomes very ordinary and not longer a pleasure. When being a 4 star plus hotel, I think that the food should be more delicious and inventive - and not so ordinary.

3) Pool 2 was quite cold. Two extra degrees would be wonderful.

My husband and I joined up with our son and his wife and two children for a week's vacation from the 11th to the 18th of January 2014. It was our first visit to Gran Canaria and we really enjoyed it. The food was superb and there was a great selection for buffet breakfast and again for buffet evening dinner. Meals for the children were free. The room was very comfortable with balcony and also the family room was also very comfortable and spacious.

Cordial Mogan Playa has been our home away from home during the winter in Norway.
Last year we visited the hotel 3times for the total of 5 weeks.
This year we have already spent to weeks in January, and we go back for another two weeks in February.
The service is excellent, the rooms are functioning very well. Wonderful pools, heated in the winter, Jacuzzi. The rooms are placed in several buildings, connected together, and many different types of rooms. You have to visit to find out which type of room is best for you.
The tropical garden surrounding the different buildings, is outstanding. Never seen anything like it in any luxury, and much more expensive hotels around the world.
Breakfast and evening buffet in the main restaurant, has very high quality. Like the very best 5 star hotels. In addition an a la carte restaurant ( open Tuesday to Saturday), with excellent food, very reasonable priced.
Internet ( Wi fi) could function much better, as it is almost absent with exemption of the lobby. Should be upgraded, as so many is using all kind of data these days.
Very many guests from Scandinavia, and even if watching TV is not the reason to visit Cordial Playa, main TV channels from those countries could have been included. There are plenty of other European TV channels.

Booked this hotel because of the reviews here - and we were not disappointed. Excellent service throughout, we had a junior suite which definitely paid off, given the additional space. Breakfast was in a special restaurant reserved for guests in suites and there was plenty on offer, with tables available on the outside terrace. Dinner was very good as well - I can not understand the reviews who mention queues at the show cooking - ok there may be 5-6 people in front of you but hey, we are on holiday, aren´t we? Take your time here and enjoy.

Quite a lot of families with smaller children during holiday season, so those who want to relax in a more quiet setting should visit out of that time.

This is a very nice hotel. The 4 star rating is somewhat misleading, this hotel is better than some 5 star hotels we have visited. Normally we are not very fond of the type of hotels that try to look like a Spanish village, but at this hotel it works, and it works very well. For example, there is no real garden here, and yet it is, and a very nice one to. The whole walk through the hotel down to the port is one long beautful gardenwalk.

It is probobly the most priceworthy hotel we have ever visited. If you are going to live on a good 5 star hotel, you will have to pay apprimately 50-75% more. If every 4 star hotel was like Cordial Mogan Playa, we would shift from 5 star to 4 star. (Perhaps with one exeption, when we are in Puerto de la Cruz, our favorite place, we will always stay at the Botanico.)

We have been here twice, and we will return. Jan K

What a wonderful stay we had this one week in January. Fantastic place, lovely swimming pools, nice rooms and friendly staff. And what a breakfast! Eggs cooked to your liking and Cava if you wanted it. We will definitely be back.
