“Perfect location and value for money”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Just returned from a weeks holiday at cactus with 7 friends. When we arrived staff were very welcoming and allowed us to use all facilities straight away even though we were early and Check in wasn't open. The rooms were spacious and beds were comfortable despite not spending much time in them. The air conditioning is €38 a week and although it kept breaking in our room it worked perfectly for our friends. Music was played daily around the pool and we never had a problem finding sunbeds. The beach was also a nice place to spend the day at with free sunbeds and many nice bars. We spent every night out on the strip with pre drinks at 'must bar', as cactus hotel is roughly a 3 minute walk to the strip and 5 minute walk to the beach. Perfect hotel for 18-30 holidays but not for a family holiday. Another plus side is that right next door is a supermarket so you don't have to walk far to get food and it's reasonably priced. I would Definatly recommend visiting 'cool peppers' restaurant along the beach as we visited here on our last night and the food was perfect. It was a really nice way to finish our holiday. Would Definatly stay here again if we visited Zante.

I stayed at the Cactus hotel for a week in July 2011. Only go here if you are young and expecting a fun holiday. The hotel is a great place to stay to recover from the previous nights/early morning. Just a two minute walk from the main strip where it's non stop till 6 in the morning, and only 5 minute walk from the beach, this hotel is brilliant! The pool is small, but just what you need to cool down in. The staff are all amazingly friendly and will go to any measure to help you. The food selection is good, and there's a shop next door if you ever need large cheap bottles of water and the essentials. It's not a gigantic hotel, it's simple but comfortable. The staff make it feel like home, Christy the pool guard will even say hello when you come back at 4 in the morning, making sure everyone's quiet when they come in so no one is rudely awoken. I loved my stay here.

I believe the bad reviews are from people who go here not knowing what they're getting. If you're expecting a quiet, traditional Greek getaway, you will be disappointed as the hotel is right in Laganas, party central. If you're expecting an all singing all dancing, large Americanized hotel, you will be disappointed. If you're expecting a party holiday with a group of friends, with a hotel you can relax in and have a laugh at during the day or when you're getting ready then it's perfect. I wouldn't stay at any other hotel.

Dont go here if you are an Irish couple, try a different part of the island..
Pool is digusting, no sunbeds, and food and cigarettes everywhere during the day and service very slow.. The resort has no decent pubs, its all clubs.. if you are english and young this would be a great spot.. No nice restuarants... We found lovely pool bar that we went to every day, its off the strip a bit, if you walk to end of the beach its nicer down there too.. Made the best of the holiday but would never go back there again.. ive been to many resorts and this was the least enjoyable holiday I had...I found the strip dangerous around 5 am, Romians attacking you, it was awful.. In most other places playa del lingus, Horsonnis, corfu, lanzortote I always felt safe staying out late...

Room Tip: You have to pay 35 euro for air conditioning,, room ok..

This is a great hotel if you want to be right near whats going on in zakynthos, we didnt have to walk much at all! The bar staff in the hotel were friendly, but apart from that everything seemed to be quite old and worn. Fittings in the room were broken or just plain simple. Pool tiles were coming away from the smaller pool. This is a great place if you were like us, just wanting something just to lay your head done and get abit drunk, but its a no go for couples etc.

only paid £289 for the place and would say its worth about £5 for the weeks stay!
we found used condoms under the bed within half a day of been there? do the rooms not get cleaned before new people come in? curtains hanging off the rail, thick black mould in the shower.
we found this out during our stay as we begged for new towels and bedding as they hadnt been changed till a day before leaving! 6 days with dirty towels!
floor didnt get swept once, left with out toliet roll, only thing that got done every two days was the bins emptyed! i saw the stairs outside our apartment get cleaned more then our room
the whole room smelt dirty and dusty
wires hanging out our shower, we had no hot water for four nights, the person running the hotel told us it was not there problem? and by our last night it still hadnt been fixed
the place is a joke only nice thing about the whole room is getting out the door and not going back!
even tho we got kicked out at 12pm on the 21st june and dint fly till 7am on the 22nd june!!!!
