The hotel has comfortable accommodation, a good sized swimming pool (cleaned every day), stunning views and a first class breakfast offering. So is that it? Well absolutely not, what puts this hotel onto another level is the service plus dedicated management and staff, nothing is too much trouble and the staff show a real interest in their guests; where else...

We stayed here for a week in July 2016. The rooms are well laid out, neat and very clean. The amenities are fantastic, and the pool a welcome relief on those clear, hot, sunny Greek Island days. Every room has a view to die for, overlooking Kapsali bay to the left, across the sea to the towering Chora Castle on...

From the moment I made contact with Vanessa the owner and manager she helped me organise everything. The hotel itself has the best position on the whole Island with...

El Sol was a fantastic place to stay in Kythera. The service was outstanding, very personalized and any want was catered for. The rooms are simple with everything you need. Breakfast was great. The hotel is away from the beach which might not appeal to some people but we had a car so no issue for us. The only negative...

Excellent accommodation, excellent location, excellent facilities, beautiful swimming pool and what a location for a Wedding.

I stayed for five days with my family (2 adults and 3 children). Very nice hotel just five minute drive from Kapsali. Amassing view to the castle and to Kapsali bay. Spacious, clean and well equipped rooms although with limited internet access in some areas, nice gym, large swimming pool and parking. Very friendly staff, especially with children, who were...
