We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, it is off the beaten path. A bit of a walk to the beach, uphill the entire way back and also about 10 min walk to the major shopping area. The room was small, but cute. The bathroom was recently renovated and was huge (almost the size of the room). The staff was... More

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights - first impression was favourable with the reception staff being very helpful (especially when Air France cancelled my flight the night before I was due to fly out!) and they also had a good sense of humour.

We stopped at the Best Western Kemaris for one night after taking a ferry from Portsmouth (UK) to Santander (Spain) and driving up the coast. We arrived fairly late but the friendly concierge was waiting for us and gave us our key which let us access the small car park at the back. (The security light out there is not... More

I stayed with a friend in what they called their smallest room - while it was indeed very small the room was impeccably clean, our terrace was nice and large, and staff friendly and helpful. Only ten minutes from the beach and 5 from Les Halles with great restaurants.

We stayed at this property for only one night but wished that we had booked a week. This modern, clean hotel is situated about a 10-minute walk to a marvelous beach.

Best Western Kemaris is a clean, well-run hotel within 5-10 minutes walking distance to Biarritz center. The environment is very peaceful and there is not noisy restaurant next to it.
