This place offers two 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 two 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.
These twin rooms are designed with a warm and inviting scheme. There’s 1 child bed in the twin bedroom. If you step through the french doors you’ll find a balcony or terrace for that bit of added space. Plus air-conditioning is available from May to October.
These junior suites are designed with cosy furnishings. There’s twin beds and 1 child bed in the lounge. You’ll have a balcony or terrace for that extra bit of space outside. Plus air-conditioning is available from May to October.

Just back from a week at the Cordial Mogan Playa. This is one of the cleanest hotels I have stayed in and the staff are most definitely the friendliest.
Nothing was too much trouble and every request dealt with promptly and with a smile.
The room was comfortable, breakfasts excellent and dinners good. The choice at both was incredible and you would have to be very fussy if you couldn't find something you liked.
The pool bar also served the best Sangria we've ever had!
On arrival we were even told where the nearest supermarket was so that we could buy milk, water, wine, beer, whatever to keep in our room. This is in stark contrast to other holiday hotels that have charged for the pleasure of using the in room fridge for your own items.
Would I recommend this hotel? Most definitely.
Another excellent stay
You can't ask for anything much better. An excellent hotel along with its staff. The rooms are very well presented( 7301) on the 3rd floor overlooking the spa. Very quiet and cooler in the day. It's never cold at this time of year unless you are very nesh! Food is excellent as is the variety and choice. Do try the a la carte. Well worth it. Entertainment at night is dependent on your taste but on the whole very good. A walk down to the village after dinner can provide good entertainment around the bandstand by the harbour. The animation team were very good and inspiring and encouraging.
Staff all round from top to bottom were helpful, courteous and humorous.
Gardens are so well cared for providing much needed shade from time to time.
Will be back again for the winter 2017More

Another wonderful stay
Ever since our visit this time last year, we wanted to go back to this hotel. This time we booked direct with the hotel using the discount card, plus we managed to book early enough to get an additional early booking discount. We booked flights through Ryanair and car hire through Cicar.
I find it hard to fault this hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful and all my comments in my last review still stand. The food is very good with a huge selection, in fact, it might have been marginally better this time, so full marks there. We noticed a kettle and mugs in the room now too, a nice touch that I did mention was missing in my last review, so again, top marks there.
We had a room overlooking the spa this time. Other reviewers recommended this, but in hindsight I think I preferred our first room overlooking the top pool. Though the spa is quiet, and just caught the evening sun for a while which was nice. We were woken by the canaries singing in the morning, a nice change from an alarm clock!
As before, the gardens are immaculately maintained. This hotel is more like a small village or gated community than a hotel, so peaceful and enjoyable to walk around.
I'm really not sure why people still feel the need to place towels on sunbeds though. Here at least there has to be three sunbeds for every resident. Yet, despite warnings posted everywhere, people still "reserved" beds. We never had a problem finding a sunbed, even if we spent the morning out. Don't do it people, its totally unnecessary. It was good to see the staff notifying residents of this too. Well done!
We ate one night at Los Guayres restaurant attached to the hotel. You get 15% off the bill here if you are half or full board as you aren't taking your meal in the hotel. If you have the chance, its worth it for the experience. Try the cold Canarian cheese starter if its still on the menu, delicious!
We had the need to contact reception for two problems during our 14 day stay, once due to us realising we had no towels in the room, and once because the toilet cistern malfunctioned. Both were dealt with outstandingly quickly and to our complete satisfaction.
Other problems? Not really. As I say, its hard to find fault with this hotel.
Oh, and yes, they are building a new hotel just up from this one, but no, it does not impact on the Cordial Mogan Playa at all, its further up the barranco for it to be a problem. In a way, Puerto de Mogan needs another hotel in exactly the position its being built on, the shopping centre will benefit from the additional clientele, but I hope Puerto de Mogan stop there with the hotels, its currently a very beautiful village that, unlike so many resorts, still retains the charm of the original, it would be a shame to lose it through over development.
So another 10/10 for the Cordial Mogan Playa hotel. Well done everyone, and thank you for another very pleasant two weeks.

We had a sunny and relaxing stay at Cordial Mogan Playa in January. The hotel rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Garden in the hotel grounds is filled with beautiful plants and flowers. In our earlier trips to Teneriffe, the pool water was too cold, even though it was heated, here it was warm. Breakfast was fresh & tasty and the buffet dinner surprised us positively, with specific themes on certain evenings! Special thanks to friendly staff:-)More

why didn't I know about this gem before
I have visited Gran Canaria 15 times in the last 20 years and always stayed at other resorts. This year we decided to stay in Mogan as we loved day trips here. Why didn't I know about this gem before now? It is the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms were very clean, the staff were so nice, breakfasts and dinners were full of choices and the food was excellent. The hotel was lovely and the gardens were totally stunning. I am so glad that I found this place. A real gem. I liked the way the staff have special feeding areas for cats, with clean food and water. I cant recommend this hotel highly enough, set in a stunning location. It was paradise.More
