“Another wonderful holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2011

We have just returned from our third visit to this hotel and once again we couldn't fault it. Unfortunately, as we went earlier in the year, the weather wasn't as good as previous years but that could not distract from the warm welcome and service we received from all the staff at La Solara. Whilst all the staff are really helpful and cheery I would like to say a big THANK YOU to Pascal, the mini-bus driver, who saw us standing by the road in the pouring rain, stopped to pick us up and delivered us right to the hotel door. This year we persuaded our sister and brother-in-law to join us; they enjoyed it so much it looks as if we will have to come again next year!!!!! I just need to get rid of the extra pounds put on by the eating the excellent food. Thanks to all

Having planned to get married in Italy our next task was to choose a hotel. Following the reviews we had read on Trip Advisor we opted for La Solara. Upon arrival we were greeted with a glass of champagne. From this point on things only seemed to get better.

We went to our room and our bags arrived promptly afterwards.The room was very tidy and there was a complementary bottle of wine awaiting us (this is standard and not just for those getting married as I first suspected). Although the room was very clean and of a very good standard, it was a bit small and it always seemed a bit dark even when all the lights were on. The view from our balcony was lovely and we could see out over the bay of Naples.

The hotel is set some distance from the Sorrento Town centre. However this is not an issue as it has a shuttle bus that goes and returns every hour from 0900 - 2300hrs.

The hotel appears to be half board only and to begin with we were a bit unsure whether this would suit us. However following our meal on the first night we couldnt have been happier. The meals were some of the best we had ever had. The quality was excellent and the staff were an absolute pleasure, going out of their way to make sure we were looked after.

This was probably the best hotel either of us have ever stayed in and I can not rate the food and staff highly enough!

We actually stayed here in July 2010 - I thought I wrote a review back then! Anyways... we stayed 3 nights, and chose this hotel mainly on TripAdvisor reviews, but also because we did some research into "celiac-friendly" accommodations. After getting off the train in Sorrento, we got mixed-up as to where to meet the free shuttle bus, so we took a cab (we were a little frustrated about this, mainly because it was VERY hot!). The friendly attendent at check-in apologized for the confusion about this, and we were shown to our room immediately. Our room overlooked the pool, but when we went onto the balcony we could get a glimpse of the Bay of Naples. If you wish to spend more, there are rooms that look directly onto the bay; but from the restaurant and anywhere outside the hotel, you have an excellent view. Our room was very spacious, with a separate sitting area and full bathroom (including bathtub, which many hotels in Italy do not have). The Sunday evening special dinner was fantastic, with live music, and meet the chefs afterwards. The manager was very attentive to my wife's food allergy (celiac), and we pre-arranged some options for her, no problem. The hotel staff arranged a great Amalfi Coast bus tour for us, very reasonable. If you are travelling with children, the pool area is great, but the beach is a little tricky to get to, unless you have a car: you have to go down a steep road (not far from the hotel entrance), park in a common area, then walk down a steep path to get there. La Solara is about 10 minutes drive to Sorrento, and they have a convenient shuttle service, once you got to know it's stops. We were very pleased with our stay, a clean and well-maintained property, in a beautiful setting, with excellent food and service. Definitely we would stay here again.

Had a wounderful holiday at this hotel.

The distance out of Sorrento means a little planning is needed but it has a more relaxing and peaceful location. We had some wonderful evenings sipping wine on our balcony watching bats, an owl and the lights of boats in the bay.

We stayed here from 18th April for 11 nts through Thomsons, and got married in Villa Fondi on 27/4. I'm so glad i picked this hotel its the best I've ever stayed at, the staff are so friendly and helpful, each and every one of them especially Antonio, Marcello, Angello, Pepe, Nello to name just a few. Also Tina the Thomsons rep was very friendly and helpful. There was a group of 40 of us and the hotel agreed to let us have the wedding meal together after i got married (most of the guests were staying there anyway but they let us pay for a few extra people). The staff really made my day extra special and went out of their way to make it a day for us to remember.
The food was beautiful throughout the whole stay, the rooms were lovely and clean aswell. Our wedding planner was very helpful and I'm so glad i picked Villa Fondi it had gorgeous views and i much preffered it to the other place you could get married at which was the cloisters, Villa Fondi was much more private and better views, it did take about 20 minutes to get there from the hotel but this wasnt a problem i had arranged transport for everybody through Sorrento Taxis and a lovely wedding car-which was cheaper than Thomsons. We also chose to have the photo's done through Thomsons which were amazing well worth the money and they came in a gorgeous album with breifcase-very impressed. And we had the mandolin and guitarist through Thomsons which was nice touch, if anybody has any questions anout weddings here feel free to message me!
Trips- We only done 1 through Thomsons which was Ischia and the thermal Spa-which was a beautiful day out slightly overpriced but a nice relaxing day and again beautiful scenery with plenty of photo opportunites. We went to Pompei ourselves which was really cheap as we got the hotels free bus to the train station the the return ticket to pompei was just 3 euros and 11 euros entry.
The free bus that the hotel provides is so useful as its quite diffucult to get around otherwise, and Sorrento town centre is lovely with lots of shops/places to eat.
Finally I would just like to say thankyou so much to all of the staff for making our holiday and wedding so special, and thankyou to the musicians that play at the hotel, we had an amazing time and will definitely be back one day, Gemma & Jon x

We have just returned from a family holiday in Sorrento where we stayed at Hotel La Solara. We travelled as a family of four, including our children aged 10 and 17. The hotel reception staff greeted us at the door where we were given champayne to welcome us. The hotel from our first impression was superb, and believe me it didnt let us down! The staff couldnt do enough for us. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. They all work so hard. Set in beautiful surroundings the hotel isnt big but just what you need. The pool area was stunning, very well kept by antonio, who spent all day there keeping it clean and tidy. The rooms were extremely clean and modern. Also really spacious. The food was lovely too, but just too much!. The hotel provided a courtesy bus into Sorrento which ran like clockwork every hour which was fantastic, a great service.
For April the weather was great, first week warm but the second week hot!
We travelled with thomson which was great but we found the trips far too expensive for a family of four. we decided to take the local train to Pompeii and ferry to Isle of Capri which was brill, highly recommended.
Sorrento was beautiful, little streets and shops.
The only thing I would say is that the hotel doesnt have much entertainment at night and the road next to the hotel was too dangerous to walk out at night, however the hotel does host a great gala dinner every Sunday which was lovely.
Overall highly recommended, splendid hotel!

Room Tip: Relaxing, spotless,extremely friendly

We were absolutely delighted with the hotel and the staff. Everyone could not be more helpful and friendly. We arrived at 2 am which posed no problems for the staff. The next morning they provide breakfast for our 2 kids in the room without any hesitation. Everyone smiled and was so charming. There was a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival and a chocolate each every night, kids loved that! Breakfast was ample though not superb. We did not eat in the evening in the hotel but other guests rated the food highly. Although it is a way out of Sorrento, this was an advantage as Sorrento itself is very noisy. Plus there is a complimentary bus to the city every hour which was great. Pool large and warm enough for the kids even in April. Rooms, although not my taste in decor, were spotlessly clean and large ,with fantastic balconies. Get one with a sea view if you can. The best thing of all was the staff. This is obviously a well managed hotel as everyone was happy.
Thank-you we will be back.
