We expected an older type of place, and were pleasantly surprised at the modernity of the room furnishing and equipment. The room was a bit on the small size. Our room was with sea view, but the view was obscured by trees, which was a pity. The grounds of the hotel, extending to the sea itself, are very pleasing. Buffet... More

We stayed in hotel Kimen in August. The room was very clean and nice, although quite small. Staff was very friendly and professional. The only problem are Bicycles in the evening on the walkways, but this is not something that Hotel can fix. :)

We stayed in hotel Kimen in July. The room was very clean and nice, although quite small. Cleaning staff was very friendly and professional. This hotel however could benefit from a small swimming pool, at least for the kids. The beach is a bit strange, in between a walkway/bikeway and an area with pine trees and minigolf ground. It's not... More

This was a very pleasant surprise for us. We were aware of 2/3 star rating of the hotel and we chose depandance. It is two star rated - furniture is rather old and there is no air-con. We were staying on ground floor, which meant the room was never too hot and we had exit to the terrace - our... More

Clean, well-located, dog friendly hotel with a nice beachfront near Cres Town. Friendly, competent staff, decent food, with good value for money. I would recommend this for a family with children that doesn't mind large crowds during peak summer months. An alternative to using the beach in front of the hotel (which is very crowded in August, probably a result... More

We stayed in the Dependance block which I guess was built in communist era Yugoslavia. The room was minute and very basic. It was however clean. Temperature outside was a high of 35C and never drpped below 24C so room was very sticky. We stayed on half board basis and breakfast was excellent the dinner was not bad and had... More

We chose this hotel as the basis for a two-day visit to the Cres Island, mainly due to the limited selection of accommodation on the island itself and to our intention to stay in Cres town. We stayed in the main building after reading Tripdavisor previous comments, and found out a modern structure: our room was nice, with good comforts... More

Wifi never works, even in the lobby. A/C didn't work in any of the rooms we were in (we were forced to move mid-stay). Window curtains are too short to actually cover the windows, so expect to wake up at 5am with the sunrise. Don't expect any help from the hotel management, even if they bill you wrong.

We were very well looked after and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There is a beautiful open varanda area where you can eat breakfast and evening meals, watching the sun go down over the sea and listening to the live music provided each evening. Food was lovely and so were the wines and beers. Staff made us very welcome - particularly... More
