Hotel Kimen
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Cres Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 August 2008

If you search for a nice renovated hotel, then Hotel Kimen is ideal place for you. Also they allow pets for a price of a 3 € per day.

Room is not big but is very nice decorated and very clan. Bed, mattress and the pillows are new and are a joy to sleep on. We were very surprised when we found out that they have LCD TVs and a wireless internet. Closet is very spacious and has many shelves and space to hang your clothes. Bathroom is very nice and clean. The only minus is the small balcony. Its long enough but its to narrow. There are two chairs but no table (because there is no space for it). But if you spend most of your time on the beach like we did, then that will not bother you. Also, be aware of the fact that on the day when you check out, you do it before 11 a.m. because the main hotel computer resets the key card for the room and you cant go in anymore. We found out that the hard way.

The beach is great. Its just few minutes walk from the hotel. The sea is crystal clear and warm. You can choose between sandy and concrete beach. Whichever you choose, the entrance in gradual and without big rocks. Its ideal for families with little children. The beach is not to crowded, so you can find your place under the sun at any time of a day. If you dont like to lay under the sun, there is a pine tree wood few meters from the beach where you can enjoy the shade. If you want some recreation you can rent a bike, kayak, go paragliding over the sea or play tennis and table tennis.

Food served at the breakfast is miscellaneous and there are plenty of it. But the dinner could left you feeling a little bit hungry. Especially after a whole day of activity. Its well cooked and very tasty but not quite the amount you could wish for. Salad bar has a several choices. Only down side is the desert. You can choose between fruit yogurt and pudding. Once a week - cake or ice cream.

The city of Cres is beautiful and very colorful. We didnt expect anything like that. There a many restaurants where you can eat good and small bars where you can sit an relax. The prices are reasonable. Standard size pizza is about 6 €. Every evening theres is something going on in the city. We recommend the visit to the open air cinema.

If you want a relaxing vacation, then hotel Kimen on Island of Cres is the place for you.

Our family of four had two impromptu nights at this large hotel on the Island of Cres. The hotel is in pinewoods close to a south-facing but very attractive, clean and reasonably sheltered seashore and pebble beach. The very pretty little town of Cres is ten minutes' walk along the shoreside path. The rooms in the main hotel were newly refurbished, luxurious and air-conditioned, and all had balconies. The buffet breakfast was excellent. The high-season rate was 42 Euros p.p. B&B.
