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.
The hotel is like an oasis in the middle of a desert. It was our first time in Gran Canaria and the trip from the airport was a very barren journey with us getting more worried by the minute! On arrival at the resort it seemed that the hotel was set in botanical gardens. It is a large hotel but due to all the different areas it easily seemed a lot smaller.
The buffet meals are very comprehensive, the best we have had for a holiday hotel and there is something for everyone, my only niggle would be that although some of the food is named there are some that aren't, for example the fresh fish!
My husband and I went for a week in October to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Before we left my husband emailed the hotel to see if there was anything that could be arrange to make our anniversary day extra special, he did not receive an answer which was disappointing and a little unprofessional. We heard from a few guests that they had a bottle of wine and some fruit in their room on their arrival, they were unsure why they had received these gifts as it was also their first visit and no special occasions!
The entertainment staff were brilliant with the children but the adult shows they produced weren't quite so good meaning a lot of the guests did not attend, preferring to walk into the town for a drink or to stay in the cocktail bar. The DJ playing the music on any evening seemed to be able to empty the dance floor quite effectively and we were disappointed we didn't manage to have much of a dance.
99.9% of the staff are very friendly and very hard working, the hotel was immaculate and the restaurant staff very efficient especially the one morning when it was exceptionally busy. The only staff that we had any issue with were 2 reception staff who were a little abrupt, it's a shame the name badges are so small that without staring at the staff chests you have trouble reading them as the lady who welcomed us to the hotel and the porter who took our luggage to our room was superb, very friendly and a credit to the hotel. Also a special mention to the gardeners for the lovely grounds.
We were woken up by a fire alarm at 3am one morning which intermittently went on for an hour, we rang reception twice as we were worried about whether we needed to leave our room. We were told it was only a false alarm but even then it was hard to have peace of mind and get back to sleep. A nice gesture of the management would have been to have placed a written apology in the rooms the next day of those who had been affected
We will hopefully return and will also recommend this hotel to friends.More

Even the weather did not spoil our stay.
Stayed again at the Cordial Mogan Playa this Month, and for 2 days in the middle of our stay we caught the tail of the extreme weather which came across the Atlantic, this however, did not spoil our 4th stay in this very good hotel.
The food and the varied choices are excellent, the staff are very helpful and efficient, the gardens and surrounding areas are clean and very comfortable.
My wife and I, highly recommend this lovely hotel, set in the quiet and peaceful resort.More

The 21. time there even better than the previous!
Hotel Cordial still have some positive surprises! We got a room in another building, and the view became new and beautiful! And the room was excellent!
The large cage for the canary birds was empty when we arrived. But it was no close-down, just maintanance and cleaning. Twittering glad birds next day!
The bar in the reception has become more popular, a fine place for a starter.More

3rd Visit to this excellent Hotel
My last review stated that due to the food we would not be returning. Well that didn't last long, because this hotel is probably in the top 4 of hotels on the Island and as far as we are concerned, definately the best in Puerto Mogan, we tried it again.
We are sure glad we did, the Hotel has the best grounds we have ever seen, they even have a small chapel in the grounds. You can take a Stroll through the gardens to a door which gives you access for a short walk to the sea front, harbour restaurants and shops.
The staff can not do enough for guests, we asked for the same room if possible as a previous visit, no problem. The food was great, having a large variety to choose from.
The hotel, pool and gardens are kept immaculate. One other advantage is that the hotel is on level ground with the sea, you don't have to go up/down a mountain to visit the front.
Puerto Mogan is known as little Venice, it is well named with beutiful walkways through arches filled with colourful flowers. We would suggest the best place on the island.
The final great addition is that a road tunnel has been created which cuts out travel time from the airport and the previous hairy drive round mountains. We would again definitely recommend this hotel and we will definately be visiting again.More
A happy place to spend a holiday
We have just returned home after 11 days at Cordial Mogan Playa. The ambience of the hotel is just perfect for a holiday in the sun. The staff are wonderfully happy people. The pools and gardens are full of exotic colourful plants and the spa is so peaceful if you want to hide away and be pampered for a few hours. We don't particularly like buffet meals but the Cordial does them very well indeed. Lunch in one of the pool terrace restaurants is waiter service so that is a great alternative to lounging around all day in the sun. The port, beach and village of Mogan are close by just down a gentle slope.The whole place is so clean.
Don't want to sound too enthusiastic or we may not be able to get a room next time we want to book!More
