Hotel Los Cactus
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Hotel Los Cactus is a great resort that has all of the elements of a solid resort. The rooms are pleasant and have very little issues. They are also well-stocked and maintained daily by great attentive staff. The layout of the suites is perfect. Everything that you'd need is within reach and not terribly far to get to. There are plenty of food choices available with regards to buffet items. While some complain that there's very little variety, they did change up the items regularly. Good a la carte restaurants as well. Make sure to make reservations at the Italian Restaurant. Great pool area with a nice bar. A beautiful beach area with plenty of activities to do. Make sure to check out the catamaran tours!
Experience total privacy on this 26-acre paradise, perfect for those looking for an adults-only ambiance. The special services, sports facilities, excellent dining options and elegant accommodations will make your stay unforgettable. Signature Vacations exclusively offers the Junior Suite section of the hotel with concierge service for our Club guests.
Location: Beachfront, 35 minutes from Juan Guadalberto Gomez International Airport, 2 hours to Havana and 3 minutes to Varadero.
We traveled to the former SuperClubs Breezes Varadero, now known as Hotel Los Cactus on November 24th for 1 week vaca. This adults only resort is aged, but very well kept and has incredible gardens through out. It's small size makes it accessible and easy to get from point A to B, and is situated on a spectacular section of Varadero's famous beach! Stayed in "B" Block with a Gardenview Suite, nice size but restricted view of gardens. Decor is dated but no issues with AC, bed or shower. Plenty of room and the 2nd room was great for suitcases. Housekeeping was excellent and towels and bedding changed daily. Room was tidy everyday. We found the food quite good and always something tasty at the grill with fish, pork, prawns and beef. Not the biggest selections but we didn't come to resort to just eat.Nice snacks at the beach grille which was our choice more often for quick bite at lunch, pork roast, burgers and dogs. Nothing fancy but filling. Italian ala carte was quite good and well presented, mannered and pleasant wait staff and a nice live music quartet. Beach was beautiful and busy but staff were great in providing chairs and digging in a new umbrella for shade. Reception and lobby bar were very helpful and pleasant, which is usually a guests first impression. Only downside I can say, there no "name brand" rum available anywhere, unless you bought in store, which we did and the 1 choice of beer Cristal was really watered down. I was told liquor and beer selection in past years was better. Would I go back, yes, but I would prefer to go back the Sanctuary at Grand Memories for sure. A way better experience, but cost is more.
Trip number 6 to Breezes/Los Cactus and we all enjoyed ourselves. We chose Breezes back in 2009 because it had decent tennis courts and low rise buildings. We discovered a lovely, well kept property, pleasant rooms with private balconies, and friendly, warm staff. Now in 2017, the courts took a hit from the hurricane, but the grounds are beautiful, the beach is fantastic, with plenty of sun shelters. The rooms are spacious, very clean. Good TV. We enjoy the choice of bars, the games room, and the 2 restaurants onsite. Overall, the food isn’t fantastic, but certain items sure are- croissants and omelettes are excellent. The evening entertainment and day activities- volleyball are great, the animation staff does a good job. We’ve been to 2 other Varadero resorts which were ok, but Los Cactus is our favourite, we intend to keep returning.
Great location, quiet, relaxing, adult oriented, beautiful beach that goes for miles, great for walking, close to town but not in town. Friendly staff, always helpful. We appreciate the recommendation to the Fiesta del Carbon a great restaurant (The Best) if you get tired of hotel food. Buffet food changes and offers some limited variation, the staff really try and there is the occasional surprise that included fresh lobster. The Italian restaurant is worth going to and has a wonderful cuban alternative to tiramisu which is just wonderful for desert with coffee. This was our second time at Los Cactus, we have been at other Varadero hotels and would definitely return at this hotel. The hotel has nice size rooms, beautiful orchids when in season, a nice jacuzzi location and is not too big. Coffee bar is a nice extra (we would have liked it to be open in the morning too). Entertainment varies, its a mix, We enjoyed the cuban music trio that plays at the Ranchon Restaurant, and also the jazz at the bar though it would be nice to have more cuban jazz in the repertoire. Overall the hotel offers great value and a little bit of everything for everyone.. Thank yous to all the staff, there are to many to name from the front desk staff to the cooks, servers, animadores and the housekeeping team. Muchas Graciasa Amigos.
Very old hotel.Needs a complete upgrade.Was there from 24.11 to 01.12. Arrived to reception at 11am. Room was not ready, but there was huge storage room locked properly and with the supervisor. And they write in their leaflet, that it has security deposit boxes, as well. Beach is ok, but without palapas. Maybe, because of Irma. They will install umbrellas upon request each morning. Eventually got our room in the building. Room was clean, but some faucets in the bathroom were leaking, everything was out of date. Fridge was not working at all, but after I wrote a letter to the roommade, was fixed or replaced. Welcome drinks were in the room: bottle of bad red wine, big bottle of water, 2 beers, 2 colas, 2 sprite-like ones. Only water next days, but 1 or 2 days nothing. Bedding was replaced once. Room was cleaned properly. Security deposit box is old and has an old metal key you have to keep. Reception forgot to give towel papers. Had to return( plus we took extra towels to leave on the beach while going to eat or to swimming pool area. Beach bar is bad. Do not even tip her, because her drinks are terrible, pina colada is watered down to almost water with some smell of pina colada) Go to pool bar. It is very nice. Drinks are decent, including lemonade.There is a grill bar near the beach, but did not try it and did not go to a la carte restaurants. Buffet is fine, food is even tasty sometimes;) But some male waiters are not attentive at all. Waitresses are good. Tables are old and shakey. Doors in rooms are old, noisy and shakey, too.Lobby bar is average. Coffee bar is good. Grocery and cigar stires are good.Staff is very diverse: some are almost arrogant, some are superpolite) To summarize: this is not 4 star hotel, as they call it. 3 stars, but reasonable for money. Some would rate 2.5 stars...No umbrellas, no coffee machine in rooms, but iron and iron board exist) Would not recommend going there.
I will echo the views of most that this resort is really good value for dollar. The beach goes for miles and we had no issues getting a beach lounger and umbrella. The hot tubs were a great plus when the temperature dropped. The buffet food was good! A nice variety, and it included bacon a couple times too. I would say that the staff in general were pleasant, some more than others, and for the 4 days we were there, only the lobby bar had mint for mojitos. We only went to the Italian à la carte. Our reservation was for 830, we were probably seated by 9 and by then, the menu was a little more limited, but the food was delicious and worth the wait.Overall, great resort, and I would return.
