This is our seventh year in a row in Kapsali and El Sol. We spent here our summer vacations because we need to relax, to have piece of mind and recharge for the difficult winter ahead. No other place on Earth can give us this.

This is their slogan. It's on the back of the shirts, and it is so true. We are here now and still have 2 more nights. It's the beginning of the season, and we just happened here because the place we had originally booked was not as advertised. We are the only guests because it's so early - but the weather is perfect. The pool is sparkling. Breakfast is amazing!!! They are totally pampering and spoiling us. There really is nothing they haven't thought of or won't do, if we ask a question. "May we buy a bottle of that wine so we can put it in our fridge and have it when we get hack to the room later today?" The bottle was in the fridge, but there was also a corkscrew and 2 wine glasses and another treat to go with it. We are pinching ourselves - it's paradise. We'd like to return every year at this time - and next time stay for a week or two or three....

Absolutely beautiful hotel on the hillside overlooking Kapsali and Chora. One of our favorite spots after a week on Kythira. Lovely island architecture with nice rooms and a terrific pool, patio, and breakfast room. Stunning views both day (Kapsali beach and egg island) and night (when the Chora castle is illuminated). Room was basic, but comfortable, complete, and clean. Also nice balcony to take advantage of the views. Family run hotel with terrific pride of ownership and resulting outstanding service. Perfect base to explore the hidden wonders of beautuful southern Kythira. Not walking distance to restaurants, but the view is worth the compromise, and it is a very short drive to Kapsaili.

Did not sleep at the El Sol, but attended a wedding reception at the hotel. A beautiful hotel with a great pool. The staff was attentive and helpful, and the food was delicious. We partied all night long!

We stayed at Hotel El Sol with the whole family for a night on Kythira (2 adults and 2 children). We had to make a last minute reservation due to a fire on the island and we were welcome in the best possible way, turning around a tense situation into a nice adventure. The Hotel enjoys probably the best position on the island, above the Kapsali bay with a privileged view of the old Chora (the castle overlooking the bay). The structure fits perfectly in the landscape and is properly maintained. The hotel revolvs around a fantastic pool with salted water, complete with a restaurant that will prepare everything you need. But the real highlight is the service and the people that will welcome you at El Sol, ready to take care of you with a smile and the warmest greek hospitality. Highly recommended to set base on the island and enjoy Kythira, one of the best kept secret of Greece.
