The personell is very friendly and the view very nice from the hotel. It is located in one of the main places of the island, kapsali, so it has easy access to the downtown and to plenty of beaches. It is quiet so you can sleep well. It is more family style.

Another perfect stay. As per the hotels branding "the definition of hospitality" ... This is what you get year after year. No fuss, no trouble ...all style, comfort and magical views. Vanessa and her team always deliver. Don't worry about other hotels ...just pick this one ...but leave us our favourite room as it's just perfect.

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
