“A nice spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2012

We stayed here last week for three nights while exploring the area. The hotel was a complete contrast to the other hotel was used as it is very contemporary in style. The room was fine and had air conditioning which was needed as it got very warm while we were there. The evening meals in the terrace were a great end to the day, with lovely views of the mountains, and the food was always good. Breakfast was a little more basic than other places we have stayed but still good. The only slight problem was more one for us in that is was very easy to speak English throughout the stay! As we now live in France we try to speak French wherever possible to build up our knowledge but it is always quicker to fall back on what you know!

Room Tip: We had a room on the front looking out at the mountains which was very nice.

Cara-sol is classified as a 2-chimney establishment in the French Logis guide – I’ve stayed in many 2-chimney Logis, and I think that Cara-sol is infinitely better than any of them. It is moreover excellent value for money: we had a modern, clean, comfortable bedroom with a stunning view over the plain of the Roussillon towards the Pyrenees, and a copious breakfast, for 85 euros. Bathroom well-equipped, but a hairdryer would be useful. Bed and pillows a little hard. Good restaurant, with terrace sharing the same wonderful views. Highly recommended.

After returning from a spain vacation, we stayed a couple of nights in this great hotel. Sitting on the walls of Elne, you have a stunning view on the Pyrenees. The restaurant is great, wonderful meals, the english cook is doing as good, if not better than any french cook in this price range. John, the owner and host is always helpful. While staying there, the hotel went through some major extension with adding more rooms. The town is easy to reach from here, as well as the sea cost and Perpignan. The rooms are good size, nicely equipped and clean.

We have stayed in the hotel Cara Sol a number of times now and just can not fault it in any way even more so after the hotel has had a whole transformation. You will arrive to the most spectacular views across the Pyrenees and greeted by such friendly and helpful staff, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are modern and clean with all the facilities you require. The beautiful restaurant and bar which serves excellent food and wine, the outside terrace is also a real treat. Well worth a visit!!!
