I hope you don't think the title of this review is a little over the top, but, I can't get over the place. We stayed for 10 nights in July 2015. We were a little apprehensive as we had read such great thins on here about the place, and were worried our expatiations were to high. We could't be more wrong. We were welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine and a juice for the kids. The check in was quick and the reception staff were very friendly.
We had a one bed apartment booked, I read on here to request a room on the south wing away from the building work, which we had. The photos of the rooms don't do it justice, we were worried the room would be small as we usually book a 2 bed. The room was a great size, and the bedroom was great to as we had a travel cot up and still had plenty of room, and as for the balcony, it was massive with 2 sun loungers and a table to seat 4.
they have 3 main pools, about 5ft deep, water a little salty but you get used to it after a little while, We spent most of our time at the splash zone. The water in the pool is only ankle deep with various sprinklers for the kids to play in. Our little girl is 3 and we didn't have to worry about would she fall in the pool and she could run around to her hearts content. This section doesn't open until 11am and there was always towels on the beds from early, but we did find that people came and went throughout the day and we could get beds no problem.
We only eat at the pool bar a couple of times, it is what it is pizza, hot dogs and sambos. I've never been anywhere where there's been a great menu at a pool bar, so we weren't expecting to much. We were self catering and didn't eat in any of the restaurants or the snack bar so I can't comment on the food.
The building work going on across the road is by no means noisy. Even though we had a south block room we were directly facing the work. They arrive about 7am and the trucks start to be loaded at 8am. but we found the buses going from the depot to the motorway noisier than the trucks, they sounded like planes landing coming down the valley. the building work will not intrude on your holiday one little bit. My kids made a game out of it watching the trucks climb up the side of the mountain.
I entitled this review wow,wow,wow because I've never been to an apartment block were I was made feel so welcome. all the staff from the front desk, maintenance and cleaners were very friendly and done a great job. I've never had such a relaxing holiday were we didn't have to constantly watch the kids, I felt like I had a holiday for the first time in years.More

lovely family holiday great value for money
We spent a week at cordial mogan valle at the beginning of August. We had a lovely time, the staff were so welcoming and friendly. Our room was spacious and clean. Yes it was a little hot at night but with the fan on the door open a little it wasn't 'unbearable' as some reviews have said. I was surprised how quiet it was considering it was the height of summer, we always managed to find a sunbed and my two boys 6 and 4 loved the pools and the splash park. We stayed self catering and directly opposite was a supermarket with everything you need very reasonable. It was a 15 minute stroll to the beach and restaurants of which there were plenty. It was such a beautiful little village and everyone was so welcoming. We loved it so much we are planning on going back next year but for longer this time.More

Great hotel in a lovely location
I stayed here for a week in July 2015 with my girlfriend. This was our first beach holiday together and we both agree that it was a great choice.
Rooms were good and equipped with what was required. We rarely stayed in the room so didn't require too much. I would recommend paying extra for air con, it was very hot and uncomfortable during the night. Swimming pools were regularly busy and at the start of our stay, loungers were hard to come by as there would be so many unoccupied towels laid down. Halfway through our stay a note was passed through our door reminding guests not to reserve loungers with our towels, and after that there was a noticeable difference.
We stayed half board and each night there was a good selection of seafood and meats to choose from. On reflection, I think I would choose self-catering now, so could try more of the local foods and see more of the area without having to worry about returning for dinner.
Puerto de Mogan is a lovely harbour town offering a different option to those wanting to visit the south of the island. Quieter than neighbouring resorts of Puerto Rico and Maspalomas, Puerto de Mogan doesn't feature a vast array of watersports and activities in comparison, but what it does offer is a lovely, quieter location featuring a beautiful harbour and a good choice of bars and restaurants. The market, which is on every Friday, is very good! It is much larger than I had anticipated and takes up the majority of the town.
I would thoroughly recommend staying in Puerto de Mogan, and Cordial Mogan Valle is a great choice for the area.More

Lovely relaxing family holiday
We have just returned from a 14 night stay here and it was fabulous! The food is very nice and you get a really good choice of different meals - my 7 year old boy is rather fussy but always found something he would eat. And the opposite to my daughter who loves her fruit and there was always a good selection of fresh fruit for her to pick too! There was always fresh fish such as prawns and mussels and lots of choice of different salads.
As others have said the entertainment in the evening could be better. there was always a mini disco for the younger kids which my 2 enjoyed - even my 9 year old joined in. then a bit later they would have something for the bigger kids like bingo or karaoke but that was about it. sometimes a music quiz was advertised but never happened. They did have a couple of special evenings on where they had Spanish dancing and they were both quite good. My kids made lots of friends anyway so the lack of entertainment didn't bother them much,
The pools are all nice, we mainly used the splash pool and the south pool, and yes we did reserve sunbeds just because everyone else seemed to be so we thought 'if you cant beat them, join them!'
The good thing about this hotel I found was if you order drinks or food from the bars or restaurant you can just add them to your room and pay at the end of your holiday. we found this useful as we took half cash and half credit card, so we had the choice of how to pay at the end depending on how much cash we had left - which meant no exchanging euros once we got home!
The room was excellent - we asked for south side and high up and we got a room right at the top which had excellent views. Yes, as others have said, the lifts are annoying having to catch several to get to the top but we used the stairs every day as I hate lifts and thought also I would get a bit of exercise whilst on holiday climbing the stairs every day! I would say if you have a pushchair or struggle to climb stairs ask for a room on a lower level. The noise from the building work didn't effect our stay at all, even when youre by the pool the noise from the children was louder than anything so you couldn't hear it anyway.
This hotel is great for families with children aged 10 downwards, but older kids may get bored. I wouldn't recommend it to couples due to the amount of kids there and also the entertainment, or lack of! It is also situated in a beautiful port just 10 minutes walk.More
Travelled with my wife and 2 children for 2 weeks in August. I had never heard of Puerto de Mogan and travelled on the recommendation of a travel agent.
We were welcomed to the complex by a friendly staff member at reception who gave us all welcome drinks and provided us with a map of the complex and directions to our rooms. He also gave us the usual warning about reserving sun beds, we took note of it, unfortunately many others did not.
It took us a while to find and get to the apartment as the complex is a maze of lifts and stairs. We managed to get comfortable with the main routes within 2-3 days.
Our first impression of the complex and the apartment was that it was clean, spacious and well equipped.....apart from air conditioning! This was the real bug bearer I had with the place. I had read other reviews warning about the lack of air conditioning and sought to rent a unit from reception. I can't remember the price, I've a feeling it was around â¬80 per week but they were all out on hire and there was a lengthy waiting list. There was 2 ceiling fans in the apartment but they didn't really provide much respite from the humidity.
There were 3 entertainers providing various kids and adult activities at day and night. They all seemed very nice but the quality of entertainment was not good. Night time in particular was a let down and kids club during the day just seemed to be colouring. We actually brought the kids to the animation team in the adjacent hotel on 2 occasions and they loved it.
The pool areas were nice. The warning from reception about booking sun beds was not heeded by most which was really annoying. Particularly when you see chairs sitting idle for the best part of the day and then guests simply return, remove their towels and vacate having not spent any time there at all. The 'Quiet Pool' was less busy and was a nice break from the busy main pool. The Splash Park is great, kids enjoyed it.
In terms of location, the complex was situated perfectly within 10 minute walk of the harbour and close by grocery store. The building works going on close by had no impact on us. Main road is close by with bus stop within 5 minutes of our building.
Wifi reception was poor in many parts, wasn't too bothered about that though. If you need it, it's ok in Reception.
So, what I liked about the place was that it was well situated allowing us take full advantage of the beauty of Puerto de Mogan and its many restaurants as well as the small beach. The apartments were clean and fairly well equipped. The big draw back was the lack of air conditioning which made night times very uncomfortable. The animation team was poor, I'm sorry to say that because the are really nice people. Would I go back ? - I would love to simply to enjoy Puerto de Mogan again, I actually couldn't see myself going to another part of Gran Canaria in the future. However, I'm not sure if I would stay here again because of the air conditioning problem. It might sound trivial but with the dead heat of Gran Canaria, it was badly needed.
One other thing that I found a little peculiar was that in the last few days of our stay there was a thunder storm that let the area very dirty. It happened to be on a Wednesday and when asked about clean up we were told that the cleaners did not work on Thursday!More
