Hotel Kimen

Reviewed 29 August 2017 via mobile

Hotel Kimen is a very clean hotel with nice and plesant personnel (including the cleaning ladies). The room is a bit smaller, but also clean and with fresh towels. Food is very good, especially breakfast (dinner is served, but also good and there was always good choices). The surroundings of the hotel is excellent for sport activities, (tennis, kanu, bicycle, walking...), the city is 15 minutes away by foot.
For dog lovers (or not) - this hotel is dog friendly, there are also dog beaches very close to the hotel.
The only thing that bothered us was the fact that the staff that we encountered in the hotel restaurant preferred some of the nationalities, which was obvious through the days. This was not the case with a waiter named Ante, who was very proffesional towards all the guests in the hotel durring the holiday (Ante, vsaka čast in hvala!).

Very nice hotel close to Cres town. The rooms are modern and comfortable, the staff is very polite and helpful. Food is very good for a 3 star hotel. A lot of choices at breakfast and 4 meals to choose from for dinner. The beach is also very beautiful, the water is cristal clear and the entire beach area is clean. The location of the hotel is just perfect, the beach is just below the hotel and you can easily walk to Cres town (1,5km) where there are many restaurants with good sea food. Highly recommended option at Cres island!

We were there for the hiking rather than sun worshipping. Friendly staff, clean modern hotel.

The only thing I would say is that we were in the dark the first night on the dinner options. If we had been told that, would have been useful. How it runs is you make a menu choice the day before from the A4 sheet (Not in English), that gets transferred to your card that you leave on the table. There is always a veggie option. Problem was on the first night we were not asked so got steak. Veggie was not so happy.

The staff do speak English so will help you out with the menu or you can translate from the three languages the next day's menu is presented in. The food was generally good. A fair few buffet treats to be had at breakfast and dinner. At dinner you get your own salad / bread and desert if the latter isn't ice cream which is served. Plate 1 and 2 is served (starters and main course).

Booking.com selected a sea view room, never did see the sea from the room due to a palm tree outside. It did keep the room shaded thou. Due to the trees around you would need to be on the top floor I reckon to see the sea. The reception staff did chuckle about the sea view when I confirmed at arrival.

The camping site is their camping site so whilst some recent reviews moaned about campsite people using the beach it is theirs as well. There is a long track to the right by the sea that people go to bath / sunbath. Some nudist, some not, some rule braking etc. It seemed most of the hotel were down on the front. One of our hikes brought us back that way.
