This place offers 2 big pools and easy access to the beach. And pretty Puerto Mogan is just down the road.
The rooms here are laid out around courtyards and terraces. And surrounding the buildings are lush gardens that are home to 2 big pools. There’s also a pair of buffet places with cook-to-order steaks.
You’re a 10-minute walk from the beach, where the waters are calm, shallow and child-friendly. And it’s the same distance to Puerto Mogan’s harbour, known as Little Venice for its bridges and pretty buildings.

A lovely positioned hotel.
We went last year and returned this year. We had room 7325 full sunshine all day (so quite warm) and also a lovely distant view of the sea, great view of the swimming pool, tennis court and mountains. Food is fantastic so there is something for everybody, you can hire kettles for your room for that afternoon coffee/tea or there is a cooling fridge for that little tipple. There is a supermarket to the left outside main reception for your little extras. Evening meals come in two settings 6.30 to 7.45 and 8.45 to 10.30 The gardens are lovely to walk through and your door key can be used at the rear door though the gardens or also the side door onto the large promenade walk. If you like walking then there is a great walk up to the mountains overlooking all of Mogan, turn right outside reception go around the back of Dino supermarket out to the main road and look for the black tarmac winding road, follow this up and then at the top you will have these great views. (At the beginning of this road it does show a sign of a person with a X across it don't worry it means walking only,no cars) make sure you take water it takes around 45 minutes to get up but you may stay to admire the views for a while. There is a ferry from mogan marina worth taking also and takes you to 3 different beaches and promenades and marinas and also lovely views of the mountainous landscapes. For a local entertaining evening make a night to go to Dani Bocatta bar (turn left outside reception and it's the bar to the right at the end of the promenade with the yellow awning. It's a family run bar ( you can get basic food) but from 8.30pm they entertain you with music till 11pm believe me if you go once you will go back. We love this place and will go back again.More
Cordial mogan playa - lovely hotel
There isn't much left for me to say about this hotel, it is exactly as all the previous reviewers have said. it Is a lovely hotel, food excellent, lots of choice and all fresh, good evening meals - breakfast excellent, again massive choice - even champagne and caviar if that's what you fancy. rooms very comfortable and clean. This hotel is very big and is split into blocks. Our room was in block 3 which was facing the pool. you can request a pool view direct with the hotel, my one tip would be if you do this ask for a room with railings on the balcony, ours had concrete as a balcony which looked good from the pool but not so good if you want to sit on the balcony and watch the world go by. there re 2 pools, one at the top of the complex and one at the bottom, identical in design. the pool area has loads of sun beds and there are grass areas with sun beds on also. the pool its self was lovely. I believe they are heated so it was cool but not freezing. We swapped our evening meal for lunch one day which was also very nice. Lunch is taken at the bottom pool bar and is a buffet just like your evening meal. We went half board plus which meant your drinks were included in your evening meal, this I can recommend if you get a bottle of wine with dinner anyway. Drinks in the hotel are on the pricey side but to be honest, drinks in porto mogan are quite expensive - we were paying around 13 euros for a gin and tonic and a vodka and tonic. it is a 10 minute stroll into porto mogan which is nice after dinner. We walked to the port every day - its a pretty little place. if you have, or are thinking of booking this hotel for you next holiday - you are guaranteed to love it. oh just to mention, over the road from the hotel is a fabulous little supermarket called hiper Dino - you could stock your fridge up with drinks and take them to the pool - the hotel don't seem to mind you doing this - we walked across and got fresh sandwiches from there one day - they were also very nice. Good for your duty frees as well.More

Makes you want to return
Having just returned from two weeks at the Mogan Playa, we can certainly see why people return again and again, it feels like you have arrived in a tropical paradise, with lush gardens, both inside and out, with waterfalls, pools and rocky grottos. Rooms and apartments are spread around the swimming pools, down towards the sea front, the lower garden rooms are set in the lush gardens, some so well hidden you don't know they are there. Our room overlooked the restaurant pool and waterfalls, and up to the mountains. The room was comfortable and well equipped, serviced daily, and a short walk to the reception and restaurant, about midway between both swimming pools. The pools are a good size, with plenty of good loungers, however although there are plenty of notices asking guests not to put towels out to reserve beds, on the way to breakfast, there were always dozens of towels laid out, some people just can't let it go, we never had any trouble finding a bed. A word of warning, both pools have areas that are made up of gravel, don't ask me why, but this gravel gets everywhere, so wear flip-flops round the pools. The restaurant operates a two sitting policy for evening meal, and which sitting you choose you have for your stay, same table. This can be changed, but not without difficulty. Also if you would like wine with you evening meal, and you are not on full board plus, this will cost a whopping 20 euros a bottle. The food however is splendid, with plenty of choice, and top quality, it is however a bit spread out, and you do find yourself wandering about to see what is on offer, also some of the waiters seem more interested in keeping their managers happy rather than attending to diners as they arrive. The town of Puerto Mogan is very quiet, even quieter than we were expecting, with a lot of shops and restaurants closing early, or not opening during the week, however the choice is all encompassing, with Canarian, Italian, Greek, and one Chinese restaurant within a short stroll of the hotel, live music, of varying quality is also on offer. This is handy as the evening entertainment in the hotel doesn't start until 9.45, so gives you something to do if you are on early sitting for dinner. The entertainment on offer was of a very good standard, with something for everyone, from the 3 Tenors, 70's Allstars, to a magic act, and a Bollywood dance troupe, and Il Trio, all very good, and deserving of bigger audiences. The hotel is conveniently placed for the weekly market, and close to the bus depot, where half-hourly buses run to the capital, and the other resorts, at very cheap fares. Car hire at the hotel is very good, and reasonably priced, driving on the Island is easy, the roads are good, even in the mountains, petrol is reasonable, we had 3 days driving for the price of a bottle of wine. This is a lovely hotel, and we would certainly return, but we wouldn't bother going any more than half board.More
Excellent hotel with a fantastic photograph opportunity
My husband and I have just returned from this superb hotel. The room (suite), food and hotel cleanliness were faultless. Staff could not have done any more to make our stay perfect. One particular member of the animation team deserves a mention, MichaÅ Kosciukiewicz. We looked forward to his Yogilates session every morning. He followed up with aqua aerobics, injecting copious amounts of humour into his sessions. He even enticed us into a game of waterpolo, something I would never have done in the past. I scored three out of the six goals! Much to my husband's annoyance, I continued to remind him of my sporting prowess throughout the remaining holiday!!! The hotel provided an opportunity to have professional photographs taken by Fotoeventi Group. Photographs are taken around the hotel, with guests permission. One is not under any obligation to buy. There is absolutely no pushy sales tactics or encouragement to purchase any pictures. My husband and I chose to have some photographs taken around the hotel by Claudio; and in addition Andrea took us to Mogan village. Both photographers were extremely professional and good fun. One of the main highlights of the holidays was our evening spent with Andea, as he took photo after photo in the harbour. To describe the photographs as being lovely, is doing both Andrea and Claudio a disservice. The pictures are phenomenal; the lightning and focusing and all those intricacies that professional photographers need to produce exceptional pictures were first class. If staying in this hotel, I would highly recommend contacting Andrea and Claudio.More
