“WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a difference two months makes”

As the Headline states................... From my last visit a huge change in the look of the reception area, I wanted to see the rooms.

I stayed 2 nights this time, again I was pleasantly greeted & reconized by the reception staff, which i think is great.

The room had a fresh look about it, part tile floor, part carpet, & the heating worked :-)

The whole hotel looked like it was going through a transformation.............

I have all ready booked my next business trip with the Cactus & look forward to how it will look in season.

I Arrived at the Cactus on Friday 2nd Nov 2007 at approx 1700, yes it was getting dark so I couldn't see much of the outside, but it did look the same run down, from neglect.
A smartly dressed receptionist, who was very polite & courteous, greeted me.
I had only booked a small single room, however when I got to my room it was a double.
The room had a clean odour too it, however me being me, & what I had read previous, I had to inspect it throughout.
Surprised, I was as the room was definitely clean even under the bed!!!!!!!!!
The next day I met with the same receptionist who asked me how my night was, I replied it was OK, what I had read about the hotel I thought I would be in for a rough night.
I was then approached by 2 gents, who in turn introduced themselves as the new hotel management as of the 1st of November, and explained to me that they were starting the process of turning this hotel back to it's former self.

I had to mention the post I had read the day before, & was a little concerned before I arrived, but was more at ease when at least I had a clean room to sleep.
They said that this was the first step, but there was a lot more work to be done.
So overall Yes I only stayed one night, however the fact that I had seen an instant change on the staffing & the hotel itself.

So I look forward to my next visit to the Cactus, to which I will keep you posted.

In all the years that I have been travelling abroad, this is the worst accommodatin I have ever seen. The staff were nice enough -receptionist, a cleaner, and a handyman - wasn't there long enough to see if there were any more staff. I read somewhere that the hotel was refurbished in 2001, and I believe that. I also believe that it has never been cleaned since. One expects some dust etc during hot weather, but not hair balls under the bed sitting on top of pure dirt, skirtings that were filthy with all manner of "spillages", between the spars on the armschairs had obviously never been cleaned since they were bought (presumably 5 years). The bathroom area, was an entomologists dream. The cockroaches in the bedroom were the end. All in all not even someone who was hoping for an "Adventure" holiday would enjoy this hotel. We booked out an hour after we checked in, and that was including the time to make a series of phone calls to find alternative accommodation. In all honesty would not recommend this Hotel to anyone in its present state.

My friend and I booked in at 5.30pm on 16/10/2006 and were on our way to another Hotel at 7.30pm. The smell outside the Hotel should have been warning enough but we still ventured inside and checked in - much to our sorrow. The only thing I can say is that the sheets may have been clean but I was too afraid to inspect them too closely. I was shocked to see that state of the carpet and the dust and filth under the bed and bedside cabinets was undescribable. The beds were bolted to the floor and I cannot understand why as you would need to be insane to try to run off with one of them, but maybe the beds were in the habit or running off themselves!!!!!. We went to the nearest shop and bought bleach, disinfectant, cleaning materials and cockroach spray and on our return informed Reception that our rooms were dirty and they said that they would send a maid, but seemed totally amazed that we were complaining. The maid promptly arrived but the concept of cleaning was beyond her as all she did was bring in a very dirty hoover and quickly hoover around the two beds and thought that she had done a wonderful job. She could hardly speak any English therefore we were unable to communicate with her so we just gave it up as a bad joke. Then the largest cockroach I have ever seem in my life made an unwelcome appearance in my room (the rest of it's family were following it along the corridor)- that did it for me as I had already killed two unknown species of wildlife in the shower room. Dust and muck inches thick everywhere not to mention the so called Pool which was nothing more than a dirty puddle and the dining room was so dark that I doubt you would have been able to see what you were eating - Thank God we didn't have to wait and see what horrors were served up. There were supposed to be guests staying there but I don't know how they managed it so if you want to enjoy your holiday don't even think about booking this "Hotel" steer well clear find one that has star ratings as I think this one must have received them when it first opened many, many years ago.

Currency Exchange Rates I found that I could get better exchange rates in Cyprus than any Bank, Intrnet of Travel Shop deal here in the UK.

Mosquitos Go to Pafos instead.Take plenty of mosquito spray. Mind the kerbs- some up to one foot high.

Eating out The food is good in Larnaca, especially the FISH. You can pay a lot or a little, have a good look around at the menus before going in, it's fun.
