We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights and were married in Kythira during this time. I found the hotel on the Internet while I was planning our trip from Australia. 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... More

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... More

Excellent accommodation, excellent location, excellent facilities, beautiful swimming pool and what a location for a Wedding. Breakfast is a kytherian experience, traditional, delicious and nutritious. Service is great, the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. We have stayed at the hotel two times in the past years and we are looking forward to book... More

This is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review for a hotel we didn't even stay in. My wife and I recently had 1 week in Kythera. On a whim we decided to drive up to the El Sol Hotel to have a look. We were blown away by not only the property itself but also... More

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...

Large rooms. Simple but comfortable. Stunning views. Lovely pool area. Good breakfast. Fantastic service by Vanessa and team. Incredibly relaxing. Play area and multi purpose court a little tired. You really need a car to stay here as it is up a steep hill. I have not stayed anywhere else on Kythera but think this place would be hard to... More

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.
