Welcome to El Sol Hotel

Kythira of Legends and History. Kythira of Glory and Dreams. Kythira of the songs. This island gently and graciously meets with the Aegean, Ionian, and Cretan Sea. The same island where the goddess Aphrodite was born and where the Earth punished the sky. This is the island of corsairs and pirates. Its waters with the shipwreck of Mentor and the Antikythera Mechanism. It’s where the golden-yellow of the flower Sempre Viva meets the vast blue of the sea…

In this land where all three seas meet and where the Sempre-Viva promises eternal life to locals and visitors stands El Sol Hotel located right across from Hytra and the Venetian Castle. The saltiness of the sea, the smells of the island, and our “meraki” which continues the tradition of the Raikou family are waiting for you in a paradise on earth.

Breathtaking views

We were are the hotel for a family wedding that was held at the hotel. The staff were so accommodating and the hotel itself is all you need. The views from the hotel are breathtaking and almost don’t look real! The castle is definitely worth a trip and I would recommend a trip to the shops on the streets up to the castle for some beautiful gifts for the family. Well worth a visit and highly recommend hotel and island.


This hotel is a paradise

This hotel, with its glorious views and handy position, is a paradise. 10 minutes walk from the beach and 20 minutes from the Fortress and town, it is well situated. The rooms are large and well-appointed, the pool is terrific and the restaurant, open all day and late into the night, is excellent. But the best thing is the hospitality. The staff know what people want and provide it with genuine friendliness and efficiency. Kythera may not be well known as a Greek Isle destination, but, based in this hotel, there is a lot you can do and see
