Bungalows were very sweet and the aircon worked wonders, we were actually too cold for a change. Right by the beach which is perfect, free sun loungers for guests, restaurant was okay. Nothing special and quite pricey for what you get, we went out most nights. The massage bit is okay too, right on the beach so very relaxing but... More

Lovely little bungalows set next to the beach! Rooms were clean and were made up every morning, it had a rustic feel about the whole place. Having the restaurant right there was very convenient and the prices were very reasonable, as well as the food being very good! Would go back as it was lovely for the time we were... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Cactus Bungalow, even extended after 2 nights because it is so relaxing. You get what you pay for and we did not care, it is far enough from the main road, right on the beach, but close enough ATM and Family Mart/7-11. Fishermans village is only 10 min walk. WiFi only works on the... More

We stay 16 days in Cactus and we love it. Friendly staff who is always attentive and like to help. The restaurant, overlooking the bay with a great view to Koh Panghan, offers tasty Thai dishes, seafood and maybe the best pizza on Samui, and don't forget the cocktails. Individually designed and clean bungalows for every budget make you a... More

I've been to Cactus many times and I keep coming back. It's because of the friendly helping staff, the music at the bar (seventies soul and R&B), my bungalow (excellent aircon, cleaned every day and comfy bed) and 'the vibe' (relaxed, lovely well maintained garden, beach at your doorstep).This place is surely well recommended if you love a quite but...

Very helpful owner, you can order some really good meals, direct entry to a very nice beach; the bungalows are really great - perfect working AC, great furnishing for example "stone bed"; fast wifi - everytime available; maybe it´s not quite easy to find the location coming from the street, but I definitely recommend Cactus Bungalow!!

Can not recommend this place enough, Jeff was a fantastic host, helpful and engaging. The staff were attentive and polite. The rooms remarkable, each one individually designed to reflect aspects of Thailand. Rooms impeccably clean and daily made up with clean bedding and towels. The beach was peaceful and plenty of sunbeds available, as was a massage on the beachside... More
