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.

Great Family Hotel
This is the fifth time I have stayed here, each time with the family. Each visit has been superb and the hotel is so well maintained that nothing ever looks tired. The gardens are amazing (including the small church), the choice of food is phenomenal and the quality is great. If you like fresh fish or steaks cooked in front of you then you won't be disappointed here. The rooms are spacious and well appointed including fridge and a DVD player. The rooms are arranged in blocks and my personal favorite is the 7000 numbered rooms, particularly those with a pool view. Avoid room 5101 as this is not very private and is directly above the kids club. The kids club is great though and has loads of activities to keep the younger guests amused and it also runs on an evening. The downsides of the hotel - I think it's a bit mean to charge you to use the safe in your room and this time I noticed that the spirits were measured rather than the usual generous glassful but all in all, I cannot speak highly enough of the hotel and staff. I hope to return again next year.More

This is our second visit
This is our second visit to this delightful Spanish resort. Once again, we were not let down! Our welcome started with a lovely glass of Cava whilst checking in at Reception and then we were taken to our charming room overlooking the swimming pool. We really can't find fault with Cordial, and one of the many highlights for us the is most amazing buffet in the evening! We have travelled extensively and this is undoubtedly the best. There's something for everyone! Although Cordial's brochure does not do it justice, this resort is also child-friendly and although we tend to prefer holidays without lots of children, we were quite happy to sunbathe at the 'kiddies' pool who, although exuberant, were not in the least badly behaved. We also used the 'adult' pool which is also beautifully designed with lots of mature landscaping. One small downside is that the balcony to our room had a solid wall, rather than a metal 'see-through' one which meant we were unable to enjoy the view - pity. We also were not hugely in favour of having a choice of either 6:30 pm or 8:30 pm for dinner as we normally have our evening meal at 7:30 pm, however, we so looked forward to the buffet, we put this minor aggravation to one side. I enjoyed several visits to the spa which is well run and has a very calming atmosphere. The little harbour of Porto Mogan is literally a seven minute pleasant walk away and has a delightful atmosphere with many cafes, tapas and bars and lots of water movement with small and large boats/yachts on the go. We plan to book again next February (if it's not fully booked,that is!) and look forward to our next visit whenever that might be. It goes without saying that the weather is also a huge draw!More

Reasonable Hotel - Has lost it's magic.
I have just returned a few days ago from this hotel this would be the 4th visit over the past 12 years. We visited with our kids 13 and 9. We used to love this hotel and decided to book again we don't often return to the same hotel twice this is the only hotel we visited more than once in Europe. The last time we visited was around 5 years ago. The hotel used to have this real luxury feel to it with robes slippers and lovely rooms and you didn't mind the fact it was half board as the food was so good and the surroundings this was a small price to pay and without sounding snobby the half board sometimes erases certain types of stereo typical all inclusive travellers. However the drinks were very over priced this time around, to the point that we just ordered mineral water at meal times most of the week and purchased wine and soft weeks from the Spar shop that was very near by 5 minute walk you do have a fridge in our room. To give an indication on the first night we arrived we had a bottle of Cava that was 18 Euros the same bottle in the nearby supermarket was 5.50 Euros. We had a round of soft drinks in the daytime this was 3 smoothies and a coffee and the bill total was 28 euros. Its a real shame as we noticed only very small number of customers purchasing drinks and we quickly realised why. If the prices were middle of the road the sort of prices you pay in the port itself in the cafes this would have be fine the prices have definely gone up and we had a 10% discount card too this is free to anyone returning you just have to call up and ask before you revisit and they post you a card. On this note when I called to order the card as we lost our last cards some years ago I specifically requested a family room or interconnecting rooms as we couldn't book the suites as our daughter was 13 the minimuim age for two kids in the suite is 12. So we booked two rooms when I called the hotel I was told no problem at all they have plenty of family/interconnecting rooms when we arrived there was all denial of this call and we were made to feel very unwelcome and were basically told they would try to sort something else out the next morning as the hotel was fully booked not a great start to the holiday. They did the next morning move us but we were very partronised by the head of reception who gave us a lecture on booking at a hotel which I could not believe ! If you need interconnecting rooms make sure you get a name and email confirmation as apparently although I called the hotel direct the number goes of somewhere else hence the mix up. Other returning customers have mentioned welcome fruit on returning in the rooms we had this last time but a very poor start this time and no welcome fruit in the room and they seemed to overlook our requirement's. They did however give us a complimentary upgrade to the ala carte restaurant as an apology so they made an attempt to ensure we were made to feel welcome after this awful start. On the plus side the rooms are very basic but very very clean, and the gardens are still beautiful. I visited the spa twice and had treatments and this was amazing. Dinner was like a cattle market I think they have too many people staying at the hotel and not enough restaurant space. They have almost become a victim of their own success. Dinner was never so busy when we visited before even in peak season. The food is still very good though. I wouldn't come back to this hotel though as they try to force you to dine in timed sitting's and it's just to manic and at the same table each night I really don't like to be so forced in to all of this on holiday. The wifi didnt work in our room and only sometimes worked on the balcony we had no sun at all on our balcony so I would email and request this as we didnt sit out as our balcony was blocked by all the plants and totally in the shade at all times. And swimwear didnt dry out outside because of this. If you need email for business on this holiday in the room you could not rely on the wifi in the room. This was a pain. We have stayed in many other 4/5 star hotels and never has it been so busy in the dining areas they really need to sort this out. Most nights our plates were just not cleared of the tables and that is not nice when you are eating desert and the dinner plates are all over the table. Top Tips Bring a travel Iron and kettle. There is neither. Visit Maspalomas lovely area and we had a half hour camel ride in the dunes which was great fun there is a bus station by the spa shop all the buses have air conditioning and go all around the island and this was much cheaper than an organised tour too. Friday market is really good fun it goes right round the harbour. It starts early and finishes around lunchtime. Bring your EU health card there is a free medical centre as long as you have your card if you do need to see a doctor we needed ear drops and we were in an out within 20 minutes - by the bus station (not the private one where you pay a fortune on the sea front they do not accept the EU cards) Overall we did have great holiday but for the money we spent Â£4100 for 1 week all inclusive our 13 year old is counted as adult and this is peak season. I would rather go somewhere else and on an 4 or 5 star all inclusive instead with drinks at these prices. Sadly the Cordial seem's to have lost its special magic it once had.More

Love Love Love this hotel !!!!
This is the second year we have visited with our children both 5. We don't usually go to the same place but as it was so fantastic last year we decided to go again. This year we visited in school holidays end of July. It was good that it was still not over crowded and you can get a sunbed easily. The children love the disco and kids club and we love the food!!! The staff are so friendly and some remembered us from the year before. We definitely want to return !!! The best rooms are facing the main pool by reception!! Also if you have a cordial card when you revisit you get one night free for every 7 nights staying which Is very good value !More
