Just an medium quality hotel.
Food is just the worst I have ever tried! Mosquitos will kill you l, the staff is not really friendly. Beach is amazing, rooms are clean and they had closed all the restaurants only the buffet works and it was really bad quality food. I’ll definitely not stay again there. The place is nice btw. But is not the best you will find in Varadero

Lovely staff & beach but rooms need some TLC
Overall I really enjoyed our 4 days at Be Live Los Cactus, but I went in with fairly low expectations. I'm glad to say it exceeded almost all of them, though there is definitely room for improvement. From reviews online I'd been led to believe the food was inedible. This was far from the case. The food was varied and plentiful at the buffet restaurant, and while not gourmet dining, it was tasty enough. Remember that this is Cuba, where a decades-long embargo means they find it difficult to bring in many fresh ingredients. Despite this, the food was fine. The drinks were even better. The staff are mostly excellent - friendly and helpful. The pool was lovely with plenty of loungers, likewise the beach was gorgeous and not too over-crowded. They have kayaks and pedalos for free use. There didn't seem to be a queue for them at any point. They have 4 tennis courts, but just one set of rackets, however we did manage to grab them once for a game! The WiFi was fine (1 CUC for 1 hour and only available in common areas). The rooms are, unfortunately, very tired and in need of TLC. They also weren't particularly clean, with some cobwebs in corners etc. The bed sheets etc were always clean, but the little details of the room weren't. While we were there, they were re-painting outside, but this is cosmetic and really the rooms need renovating. Despite this, I'd stay again, and would wager that Los Cactus compares well v other hotels in the area.

Exceptional 10.0
Nice hotel
Lovely staff, ok food and drink and the most important- access to the beautiful beach and sea. More activities during the evening needed as it was dark by 6 pm and not much was going on then. All the activities were happening during the day when most of the people were on the beach.

Though not the best, worth the money definitely
You could find better all inclusive resorts in Varadero, but this place is nice, considering the price. Staffs are mostly friendly, and foods are not bad either. Wifi available at lobby and restaurants, not in your suite though. Recommendable.

Needs improvement
The resort is very nice, right on the beach that is beautiful. Plenty of chairs on the beach and amazing water. However, the rooms can be cleaner and updated. The buffet food was horrible, not to much variety. The staff that works at the buffet needs to be trained better to take care of the buffet area. The waiting staff was very friendly and tried their best to help everyone but were under staffed (we felt bad for them). The food in Restaurant 'Mojito' and 'International' was a little better and the atmosphere was nice. The reception staff was very helpful at check-in and check-out. All in all we had a nice time at the hotel but as a friendly suggestion to the hotelmanagement we would say: get help to train your buffet-staff and cooks to improve themselfs. Not worth 3 stars (yet).. mainly because the quality of the food.
