First the good things. Could be the best hotel of the island. Location!! On a hill, perfect view of the old castle, the Med. sea and the hytra island, big pool, 1km from Kapsali beach, 1-2km from the old city. The breakfast has a few local products, honey, barley rusks, but the quality of the rests didnt satisfy us. People... More

I hesitate to praise Kythera ( kapsali in particular) too much, because it will reveal a lovely secret. Kythera has everything from beautiful beaches to fascinating history going for it. El sol is he perfect place to appreciate it from. The lovely relaxed atmosphere and beautiful vistas ( particularly from the pool bar area) made for a memorable stay. Vanessa... More

El Sol is located on a hill top overlooking Kapsali and just opposite Kythera Chora. It's a great, quiet location with very nice views. Just note that since it's on a hill you really need to use your car to move around. The staff at the hotel are really friendly and supportive. We really enjoyed the genuine hospitality and attitude.... More

I totally over-looked reviewing our stay here. We had an absolutely lovely stay here in a comfortable 'greek style' room with all amenities and a great pool and breakfast area. Sensational aspect and close to some good eats in Kapsali. Vanessa was great, from the moment I contacted her to make our reservation many months earlier and right thru our... More

This hotel only opens in the summer months. It overlooks Kapsali on a mountain top. The pool is stunning with rooms surrounding it. The staff were wonderful and there is free wifi at reception. When visiting kythera...why would you want to stay anywhere else? Had a room with bunk beds for the kids and dinner at the pool was fantastic.... More
