As we had used Best Western Hotels in other places in Italy, we decided to try La Solara.
Generally the experience was positive. The hotel clearly caters to holiday packages for people from Britain and had the feel of a retirement village. Our twenty two year old daughter who joined us was the youngest person there by about forty years! (In fairness after a couple of days there were a couple of other families with younger children). The additional charge for our daughter was expensive at 50 Euros extra a night. It is well appointed, clean and the cleaning staff were very thorough - even folding our PJs neatly and tidying up our mess. Our balcony overlooked the Bay of Naples. Unfortunately it was also close to the lounge where the piano bar and the entertainment provided as part of the package tours went on until about 11.00pm. With your balcony door/window open you could also hear the conversations of people on the next balcony as they drank their complimentary bottle or red and loudly debated their plans for the next day! The breakfast was excellent but the wait staff had very clear ideas about where you should sit. We checked out the dinner menu but felt that it was very expensive if you weren't part of the package tour. We preferred to have meals in Sorrento and the shuttle bus was great for this. Each trip began and ended with the driver backing up/down the very steep driveway - it certainly added to the adventure! Both the drivers were helpful and happily dropped us off at the train station on the day of our departure which was a great help when we were dragging a big suitcase. The pool area was lovely and we were so disappointed that it was just too cold to have a swim. The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful.
