We stayed at Kythira Golden Sun for 4 nights.
This new hotel is located at Agia Pelagia,and it's only a short walk from the beach and the restaurants.It's a 30-45min drive from the port Diakofti.
This property is a little jem.Our sea view room(No4) was spotless clean,was very spacious and tidy,had A/C,free WiFi,iron,fridge etc.Towels and sheets were changed every second day.
The owner Mr.Tasos has paid attention to every single detail and also promotes an environmentally sensitive development,biological filters that recycle water.
He was very helpful and friendly and upon arrival he gave us a map and suggested the must "see" and "do"places of the island.
The only con about this place is that they don't provide breakfast and Agia Pelagia does not have a bakery(There's a mini market close by and some places that serve breakfast,but we didn't try them)
If you want pastries and fresh bread,you must drive to the near village called Karavas and buy some from the island's central bakery.(it's a 15-20min drive from Agia Pelagia)
You should definitely try the almond and honey rusks,they are delicious!!
We recommend Kythira Golden Sun to everyone!It's also ideal for families with children,as just across the property there's a children's park/play area.
About the island:
Kythira is an unusual Greek island... it 's quiet without being remote.
Locals are very friendly and happy.
You will definitely need a car to explore the island,which has unique landscapes.One part of the island is green and the other part is rocky.The beaches are marvelous and crystal clear,but access to some of them is very difficult.
The roads are very dangerous as they are very narrow and road signs are limited. There's no road lighting at night.Must be extra careful when driving and use GPS.
