We gave this resort a 5 start even though it lacked location (the beach being across the street). However, the service, food quality (best breakfast buffet we had in 3 weeks in Greece and even better than the Hilton), cleanliness, etc. was great. Dinner buffet for 5 nights was tremendous (and we have seen quite a few all inclusive dinner... More

Fantastic hotel. We expected to go out most of the time or at best to get bored hanging around the hotel. but we loved being there. Pools, food, staff, bars, all excellent. Staff friendly and helpful, the food excellent at every meal and plenty of room to relax. The spa is an excellent standard.

We spent a week here in May 2015. Wow, what a hotel, we have been lucky to spend time a quite a few 5 star hotels, and this is the real deal. It is beautiful designed, modern, clean and tidy, and picturesquely landscape; and compared to other hotels we have stayed at, good value for money. The rooms were good,... More

It always helps when the sun is hot. This was the first week of the season it opened. Always a risk but everything worked liked it had been running smoothly non stop. The rooms are comfortable and spotless. The food is good and sound. The a la carte restaurant is worth a visit. The staff are exceptional and cannot do... More

My friend and I have just returned from the cactus royal hotel and spa. We were upgraded to a junior suite which gave us a sitting room as well as a bedroom. The hotel is amazing, as are the staff. The hotel predominantly serves German, Dutch and Swedish guests and the staff were very pleased to have two English girls... More

IF you believe you are heading to a 5 star hotel, you might have to have a look at other options as well. And here is why: THE HOTEL * Territory. The territory is quite small, with no actual playground or garden (however there is a small one which we did not actually visit). The entire area is quite clean,... More

Last day staying at the Cactus Resort and we will definitely be coming back again. Okay so I've stayed at luxury 5*hotels in London/Paris etc and this hotel doesn't really have the luxury element, however, the relaxed and chilled out feeling of this hotel deserves the five star award. Good point - *The hotel is super clean, pool is spotless,... More
