We spent the last week of May at La Solara. We booked through Thomsons and got the last top price level of sea view room - we booked in January, so you have to book early! It was well worth getting a sea view room. Our room had a wonderful view (beautiful sunsets) and a terrace. The room itself had basic furniture but all well kept and it had comfortable beds and a nice tiled floor too. We didn't get any noise from other rooms.
The thing that really stood out for us was the cleanliness of the room and the communal areas, all kept spotlessly clean. The hotel cleaning staff are rarely seen but behind the scenes do a fantastic job.
There were lovely little touches which gave a personal and friendly feel to the hotel, like being welcomed by the manager and staff on arrival and bid farewell on departure, plus the turning down of the beds and the little chocolate each night(!) and the bottle of wine in the room on arrival.
The evening meal (dining room a bit 70s in decor and table linen, but one could call it 'rustic' too!) was good - anything Italian particularly good! I thought the mezze on the salad buffet was devine! Breakfasts were very nice too. Waiting staff efficient and friendly.
As another review said, you need to decide what you want from this holiday and whether you would prefer to be in the centre of Sorrento or don't mind being outside. It didn't bother us taking the hotel shuttle bus into Sorrento, but there were times when it would have been nice not to have to time our departure by the bus.
One day we took a public bus from Sorrento's main bus terminal to Positano but we couldn't get on the first bus and had to wait half an hour for the next, and then on our return had to cram onto a bus, standing and at points hanging on for dear life!! We took the excursion for Amalfi and Ravello with Thomsons which was good and worth the extra cost for less hassle!
90% couples when we were there.
You can see why people keep going back to this hotel You know that you will find a a very well run hotel - homely feel, friendly staff who seem to be a real team, quiet at night, good food and very clean.
