We were here in august and everything was perfect. The food is still absolutely fantastic. The beach in Stalis is one of the best on Crete. 6 eur for umbrella and two beds is good price. We will be back for sure.

All was perfect here. The room, the staff, the all-inclusive breakfast, lunch and dinner. Especially I was positively surprised from the greek cuisine. Finally, the hotel has also a beautiful beach with sand.

My and my boyfriend stayed there for 12days 3 years ago. It was our first time on Crete and we were very satisfied. It is bigger hotel, not one large building, but a few smaller houses with rooms in amazing garden. Beach is good, a lot of sunbeds... food was delicious, everything fresh and tasty... in front of the hotel... More

We did not plan to come to the cactus beach hotel, we were originally booked in to phaedra beach but were emailed just hours before our flight saying we had to be relocated - so we had absolutely no idea what this hotel would be like! Fortunately, we were immediately impressed and we are so glad that for whatever reason... More

we stayed in cactus beach for a week. what you dont realize is that the hotel is actually huge, all is laid out so you dont feel it, which is nice. clean rooms and working facilities, pool clean and well equipped. dining area is big, easily accomodates all guests without the unneccesary crowd and noise. evenings for kids (loud music)...

If I knew all the details of this hotel before booking, I would have never chosen it. I will start with the positive first, because its the shortest part. The restaurant and its food - great variety, great quality and amazingly tasty! I believe this is all thanks to the restaurant manager who is always on watch like an eagle... More

Dear Anastasia, You write correctly in your review, you had better before your vacation inform yourself about our hotel. Because in the brochures and the internet, we announce that we do not change towels and sheets every day. This is mainly the reason to think about the environment. We also announce that we rent beach towels for a deposit (€... More

Average facilities, many in bad state of repair. Good food in restaurant, although very repetitive if staying more than a few days. Restaurant and room staff were nice, animation staff energetic, but the front-desk staff were unhelpful, sometimes rude and did not tell us about many of the inclusions in our stay. Close to nice beach, but crowded in August... More

Kalimera! Many thanks for the review of our hotel. We're very sorry that you did not enjoy your holiday with us in every way. You write quite right that here on Crete it’s much livelier in August – which means in high season – as in May or October. We're also very sorry that you perceived our staff from the... More
