Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A Modern hotel with friendly personal. I like soft beds, and this was what I got for a good sleep. All rooms have aircondition. If you book a standart room, it could be that your view from your balcony is to the neighbor building, so better book a room with sea view or just don't stay in the room/balcony go out and enjoy on the cot directly at the sea. The food is tasty and rotating theme every day. Hotel has a great spa, and my special thanks to the spa team Kalliopi, Loanna, Erofili and Theodosia, which make a great job. You will get good advice of possible massages for your needs and can define its intensity. Best massage I got in a hotel spa. Thank you. The hotel has direct access to the sea. Great to watch the waves. Hotel own beach is a little rocky, but you can also go from this beach to the open beach next to it, with a sandy beach. At the pool bar you get tasty cocktails or very good Cappuccino. Nice place to relax and chill. I had a good time.

Between the 22.07 - 29.07, we got to spend some quality time at this wonderful and sweet hotel. Everything was great, whether it was the food, the drinks, the room or the location of the hotel. But what truly made our stay special, were the wonderful people who work there, so a big thank you to you all! A special thank you goes out to: - The two Dimitras at the bar during day time - My friend Giannis the philosopher, my friend Fanis and Maria at the bar during night time - And the two lovely and humorous ladies from the spa Theodosia and Erofili (your next Gyros is on us :D ) Without a doubt we can recommend this hotel and we are looking forward to visiting this place again in the near future

Hotel has a really cool and modern style, rooms are very pretty and quiet. I like the desserts and cakes very much - so creamy and delicious ! I would recommend this hotel to those who like to relax and take care of nothing (of course with all inclusive).

We spent a wonderful week at the Cactus Mare. I come from the hotel industry myself and can only say that the concept, design and equipment are absolutely perfect! The price-performance ratio is absolutely great! You should definitely book the spa area with Eleni and Erofili. It is very expensive, but really good. My partner and I both had massages. My partner had shoulder problems and I had blockages in my neck and back. We felt like we were born again!!!!!

Room clean and OK but small 'Junior Suite' Food OK, service very nice except for the evening at the bar, Fanis gives the impression that it's better to disappear, otherwise it's no fun - the service at the bar during the day is perfect - unfortunately in the evening only with the so-called service Otherwise everything OK Food OK, room OK except for the service at the 'evening bar'

This is the fifth time we have been to the Cactus Mare. The high standards are always improving. Excellent food with a daily changing buffet. Very spacious, clean rooms. We had rooms with a side sea view and a lovely balcony. Very friendly staff in all areas.
