Stayed here with my brother his wife and a friend. I think overall it was a good choice of location, the setting idyllic , the beach amazing the sea like bath water. Our arrival was fine no particular issue other than I don't like my passport out of my sight and they put it in a box on the bar......

The welcoming is just like the name : Cactus 😖 If you look after the boss just check the man in front of the laptop, here he is all day long. In fact he is certainly not the boss since he cares about nothing, including you except to make you take out your money . Do not expect either the...

Stayed at the bungalow for a week and we were surprised about the general maintenance of the area. Bungalows are really outdated, moldy bathroom with a horrible water smell, dirty lamps with spiderwebs, filthy ceiling....on top of all, the service was not pleasant. None of the servers at the restaurant greeted us unless we spoke to them first, and we...

The bungalows simple and effectively decorated, large bed, bathroom/toilet airco(or fan), cable-tv and safe. yes, basic but clean and it all works! WiFi in the bar area. If you need more...

We booked into Cactus because of good reviews her on TA and low price for the bungalows. We felt a bit dissapointed after arriving Cactus. We first stayed in bungalow #11, located at the back from the beach. The bungalow was basic still spacious and you had everything you needed for some days at the beach. There was a moldy...

The rooms were exactly as pictured. The restaurant was a little overpriced, but had awesome margaritas and good breakfasts! The beach is right there....with beautiful views of the neighboring islands.

Gotta say, this place exceeded my expectations. It's a cheap 2 star bungalow place right on the beautiful Bophut beach in Samui. We originally booked for 19 nights but had to leave after 10 due to torrential rain, but we enjoyed every moment at Cactus Bungalows regardless of weather. Jeff, the manager, was always very accommodating and was constantly asking...

The Cactus is situated on Bophut Beach. It is a 2* resort with air-con or fan bungalows. We stayed for 8 nights and only paid £80 for the stay. It is very basic, no fridge or wardrobe, etc, but for the price it is clean and comfortable. The staff speak english and the snack bar serves nice food in a...

We actually stayed further along the same beach in a place called charlee villas which despite being on the beach was awful . In desperation we walked to cactus to find some amenities. Douza the lady at cactus was delightfully welcoming and so helpful.Her English was excellent. She was happy for us to use sun loungers and bar, she booked...

We didn't stay here, but discovered this fantastic, relaxed bar, with comfy, rustic seating and a laid back vibe... Great elevated views over the sea, ice cold glasses, Chang and more besides - low prices, what more could you ask!! By the end of 10 days we were welcome regulars and also had an easy lazy supper one night which...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the middle of Bophut Beach. Created 13 years ago and designed by the owner. Still considers itself as a guest house. One of the last old school getaways in Samui. Attractive prices. Great food from traditional Thai to home-made pizza. Cocktail bar (great mojitos) and free pool-table. For the ones who like it smooth and simple. ... more   less
