Friendly welcome and a good sized room that is clean and comfortable. 5 mins to nearest beach. 10-15 mins to main shopping and restaurant area. Parking 13 euros high season. Breakfast at 12 euros looks a bit pricey.

A short walk to the beach. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Parking impossible outside the hotel so 11 euros a day for hotel car park essential. Rooms modern but hardly spacious. No bath. En suite had a "modern" wash basin which was hardly functional with water spilling out as its capacity was very limited.

The Hotel Best Western Kemaris consists of a main building and an annexe. Only the main building was open in October. We had booked a standard double room. It is modern furnished but too narrow to be comfortable. The bed is offering a good sleep. The bathroom is very small as well, equipped with a shower cabin. Wi-Fi is free... More

Good little hotel, the rooms are a good size and modern decoration. The location at first was very hard to find (I was on foot) but after settling in and discovering how close it was to one of the surf breaks, and the chocolate museum I quite enjoyed it's location.

The hotel itself is recently renovated but to a low end standard. The room is not bad but the cleanliness is of medium standards and it lacks a certain attention which downgrades the accommodation. It is a pity really to have nice rooms and newly renovated and have pieces of dirt under the bed, mould in the bathroom, melted plastic... More
