We stayed in June and the weather was perfect. Room great with fab views. we were on the very top floor and as far away from reception as you could get -we have both had knee ops and had no problem with stairs/lifts etc - although i was a bit fed up with them after a fortnight :) all staff were great without exception. food was fine and hotel was clean. We managed the walk up and down to beach easily. I agree sunbeds are rammed in with no regard for personal space or comfort - just move them to where there is more space Adult pool fabulous. Nothing to complain about EXCEPT wi fi charges. I would not stay in this hotel again because of this. An absolute ripoff. there are other places which are just as nice and dont make these charges for patchy wifi service.More

Stayed here for a week all inclusive. Food in the restaurant was very good, could find something that appealed every meal. Disappointed that cava although included in the all inclusive was on draught and just didn't taste good, other wines and drinks were good quality though. Room was very spacious and had a wonderful view of the harbour. Evening entertainment was seriously cheesy and this hotel would benefit from a separate bar where guests could have a drink on an evening without being forced to isten to musical shows. Hotel is quite isolated but there are complimentary buses to the beach and Puerto mogan. Enjoyed this trip and it is a very beautiful place More
Let's start with Location:- This Hotel although called âThe Mogan Princess (and Beach Club)â is not actually in Mogan it is located in the next Bay to Mogan at Taurito so if you were thinking of having a leisurely stroll into Mogan in the evening ( as we were ) you will be disappointed. There is actually nowhere too stroll to in the evening except down a very long hill (or steps ) and back up again. The Hotel is built into the hill on the east side of Taurito Bay which means wherever you are in the Hotel the views are stunning. Not only do you have a brilliant view of Taurito Bay but also views of Mogan to the west where the sun sets magnificently in the evening. The sun reaches your balcony around lunchtime and stays there until it sets behind the cliffs of Mogan. The hotel runs a shuttle bus to Mogan once a day around 09:15 and returns at 13:00 you have to book at reception for Friday because its market day and very popular. However we went into Mogan three times during our stay and used the local taxi service which the hotel reception will call for you for the cost of only ten Euros each way (including tips). The Hotel also runs a shuttle service to and from Taurito beach 6 times during the day so spending the day in Taurito is just a five minute bus ride away. With a large Water park and waterspouts such as diving. jet skis and para-sailing also crazy golf, the usual tourist shopping and a nice sandy beach where for the cost of 9 Euros you can hire a 2 sun beds and a Parasol Now the Hotel:- The Mogan Princess is a modern and tidy Hotel. Rooms are clean and for a reasonable fee you can upgrade to a suite where you have interconnecting rooms and they replace the bed in 1 room with a sofa bed. This means you have two bathrooms and showers and two terraces/balcony s although only one has balcony furniture. We upgraded and it was really good to have his and her bathrooms (no waiting for the shower or the loo)! The bathrooms don't go overboard on toiletries only providing two bars of soap for the sink/ bath and shower gel dispenser in the shower (No body lotion,sewing kit,shower cap or comb which other 4 Star hotels provide). The levels of cleanliness are quite acceptable with rooms cleaned every day and towels replaced. The hotel also provided free poolside towels which were waiting for us in our room. The televisions in the rooms are old CRT technology with the choice of English channels being CNN, BBC News, All rooms have A.C. which is nice and cool and keeps the rooms very comfortable, The Disney Channel and Moviesformen! If you like watching television â Forget it! The beds are positively huge I could lay in the middle of the bed with my arms stretched out and not be able to touch my partner sleeping on the edge! The Hotel is built in a series of blocks all with their own lifts and stairs between blocks. We were in block 2 which overlooked the main terrace area level with reception. To get to the main restaurant we walked down 5 flights of stairs ( our choice there are lifts but we decided we needed the exercise and we walked back up as well ) if we were in block 5 then we would have had to take 4 lifts and walk down 60 stairs ( no choice ) and the same going back. The main restaurant is two floors below reception and provides typical all inclusive buffet food we have had better and worse so no real complaints. There is a snack bar at the end of the pool area which provides burgers and hot dogs and the inevitable chips also fruit and self service soft drinks beer and wine. There is also a pool bar open during the day where you can get local spirits and beers. Both the snack bar and pool bar close at 6pm. After 6pm the main bar is open situated one floor above the main restaurant and this is also where the entertainment is provided in the evening. Now we come to the main problem with this hotel at any time if I want a Gin and Tonic there is only one bar open â during the day the pool bar - during the evening the main bar. There is no quiet bar where you can sit and read a book or just relax and have a conversation. You want a gin and Tonic during the day - get your swimming gear on and go to the pool bar. You want a Gin and Tonic during the evening â walk down to the main bar and shout your order. This Hotel needs a second Bar open from 10am to 12pm. If I was the hotel designer the area to the right of reception currently looks down into the main bar on the floor below I would build the floor in and create a bar where you can relax. The Hotel has a large terraced area which is really nice with wonderful views, we used this area very evening to play cards, or sit and watch the sun go down but if we wanted a drink yep you guessed it 100 mtrs walk down the 2 flights of stairs to the main bar â shout your order â transfer the drinks to plastic glasses to take out, walk up two flights of stairs 100mtrs walk to the terrace and relax. This is not very good and needs to be addressed, in the short term with waiter service on the terrace, in the long term with a second bar open all day. Pools There are two pools one of which is adults only. The adults only pool is a nice quiet pool and provides self service beer wine and soft drinks. The Main pool is usually very busy and has the only bar open during the day. It is also on the same level as block 1. If you want a quiet room during the day don't go for block 1! Both pools are heated and are very clean. There is a rule that you are not allowed to reserve sunbeds before 10:00 am but we observed towels being placed on sunbeds as early as 07:00am. You know who you are!! OK now for the scores and final verdict Hotel Location 3 out of 10 Nowhere to walk to in the evening. Rooms 7 out of 10 Food 8 out of 10 Bars 3 out of 10 Just one bar open in the evening. Cleanliness 9 out of 10 Staff 9 out of 10 Helpful Staff. Wi-Fi 4 out of 10 Only available in reception / Main Bar,More

My friend and I were booked to stay for 1 week at the Mogan Princess, however we ended up being moved to the Taurito Princess after 4 nights as there was 'water contamination' at the hotel and they ended up moving about 130+ people to the other hotel. However, I won't bother letting that affect my review of this place as I would rather be moved than get ill. The guy at reception was really friendly and efficient and check in was really quick. The rooms are nice and spacious, nothing to write home about, but the best bit about them is the balcony with those views. We were in block 3 and had an amazing view and sun on the balcony for most of the day. Didn't have a problem getting around, although the lifts can be slow. We knew the hotel is built into the side of a cliff so it is just common sense that there would be a lot of stairs and walking involved. I donât understand why people are moaning about this! Every member of staff we met were really friendly and attentive. Had no complaints with the food either - there are so many choices for each meal. Unless you are one of those people who, just because it is a buffet, piles your plate up with a bit of every single thing on offer, you could eat something different every day. The drinks on offer are local brands but they were all pretty good â not to mention pretty strong! My only gripe about this place is people reserving sun loungers and then not even using them. I wish the staff at the hotel could 'police' that a little better. Although we managed to get a couple of sun loungers by the main pool, it did take some searching and we gave up trying to even get a space around the adult pool. So we ended up going down to the beach nearly every day. Yes, you have to pay for the sun loungers but it is much quieter down there and there is the Princess beach bar where you can use your all-inclusive wrist band to get drinks for the beach. We walked down there most days (it is all downhill) and it only took 10 mins. Wouldn't bother trying to walk back up though so took the bus back. Highly recommend going into Puerto Mogan, you can get the bus but a taxi costs less than 8 Euros. There is a lot more to do down there â shopping, bars, restaurants and a really nice beach. Pay a visit to La Linterna along the front of the beach for an amazing meal and fantastic service. All in all I canât fault this hotel as you get what you pay for. I just wish we hadnât been moved, as although the Taurito Princess was more expensive (and right on the beach), it really isnât as good as the Mogan Princess.More
Hotel amenities (pool, bar, entertainment, etc) were absolutely fine - no problems in that respect. We (group of four) went to the beach everyday and the bus was excellent - the beach bar the hotel puts on is excellent - food and alcohol at your convenience. The Beach at Taurito is really nice, not too crowded but yet still gives off a nice thriving atmosphere. Hotel food on the other wasn't the best. Whilst there was a wide selection.. nothing really did it for any of us.. the the term quantity over quality comes to mind. The alcohol was okay. I would suggest they open the snack bar in the evening and serve alcohol. Overall I have no real unpleasant things to say about this hotel other than that the food wasn't the best. This is defiantly not a 4 star hotel though. positive points: Great views Bus to beach Taurito beach Table tennis table negative points: paying for a safe paying for the fridge paying for towels food repetativeMore
