We have eaten at the restaurant a number of times and this time we decided to stay overnight on a B&B basis. The hotel owners and staff were very friendly and welcoming, the room was modern, clean and very cosy. We will be back in the future in the summer to experience the wonderful views yet again

Have eaten here before and have enjoyed it. Recent change in ownership has seen refurb of the restaurant. Now very modern, and the food is modern too. Good quality - bit pricey but worth it. Service needs to improve a bit - and quite slow with the food. We ate inside, but there is a very nice external terrace with... More

Clean and modern with very reliable wifi. The Cara Sol is set in a fabulous very convenient town. Elne allows you easy access to the mountains and the beach. The breakfast is fresh and plentiful and the evening menu is comprehensive. The views from the bedrooms are just fabulous. A really lovely hotel.

We have stayed at the Cara Sol about 5 times and have always been very impressed by the quality of food, accommodation and ambience provided by John Sutcliffe and his team. However, John has sold the business to a French couple and we happened to arrive on John's last day (30th June) and stayed for the first 4 days under... More

This hotel has been described as a little gem in a number of reviews and I have to totally agree. We stayed here for one night at the end of May 2015 and on arrival found the room was fresh and clean, with great views. The food at dinner was excellent. Host and owner John was very helpful and the... More

We returned to the Cara Sol for 3 days at the end of May. On this occasion we managed to catch some fine weather and were able to enjoy the fabulous views of the Pyrenees from the hotel's lovely terrace. It is an excellent base for touring the area which is full of interest.

We stayed here for a couple of nights in July on our road trip through France and Spain. We wanted to stay somewhere not too far from the beaches but far enough away for peace and quiet and nice views. Cara Sol is a great place and the owner works hard to ensure his guests and restaurant customers are well... More

I stayed here with a small group in the area for work, it was an absolute delight to stay at the hotel. Everything felt clean, stylish, tasteful and designed with the guests in mind. Our room was gorgeous, with views of the countryside and a simple, fresh design which I love. The food is really outstanding, a small, well chosen... More

I can't vouch for the accommodation as I didn't stay here but the food is fantastic and the owner extremely personable. The menu is typical for the region and is priced reasonably. Elne is a lovely little town and this hotel makes it all the more special. I will be back next year (again)!
