Best Western Hotel La Solara Sorrento
Ranked #10 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 June 2012

We had a brillant 7 day holiday at La Solora arriving on 11/5/12. We were given an amazing room with spectacular sea views. This is the second time we have stayed at the hotel in the last 12 months. It is the best and most relaxing hotel we have stayed in with excellent staff, food and rooms. The staff cannot do enough for you and special thanks to Marcello who ensured I had a great meal every night, despite the fact that I am fussy over what I can eat! Nello helped us learn Italian again as well as looking after you in the dining room.

The food is out of this world and the staff make you feel relaxed from the moment you arrive. The rooms are amazing and exceptionally clean. The reception staff are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble.

Will definately be returning again to this hotel, which we normally dont do, it is that good!

We stayed at La Solara for 1 week in the May. We found the hotel to be very clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful, and the shuttle bus was very convenient and punctual. We only had one evening meal but this was of a good standard. The breakfast was also very good with lots of choice. We had a room on the 3rd floor with a large balcony and a wonderful sea view across the bay to Capri. We would return to this Hotel.

We have just returned home from a ten day visit to La Solara. This was our first time to the hotel and we were looking for a relaxing break with the option of exploring the beautiful Sorrentine Peninsula. From walking into the hotel we were given a welcome glass of bubbly and snacks whilst our luggage was taken to our spacious room. The room was lovely - decorated in Italian style with a view over the pool. The public areas as well as our room were spotlessly clean. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff and they were always prepared to go the "extra mile" to help. There was also a complimentary bottle of wine in the room waiting for us which provided a finishing touch and made us feel special.

The meals were the best we have ever had anywhere. The food was beautifully presented and made with fresh vegetables and fruit. The gala meal which is held every Sunday evening and was our last evening meal before we left on the 4th June, surpassed any other meal we have ever had. This added to our very happy memories of our overall experience of this hotel. On speaking to many other guests, it appeared that many had returned to La Solara, time and time again.

The pool area was quiet and peaceful and again spotlesssly clean. Although the hotel is a few kilometres out of Sorrento there was a courtesy bus which left the hotel every hour and returning from Sorrento until late. This meant you could experience the hustle and bustle of Sorrento whilst returning to the solitude of the hotel.

If you are looking for a peaceful getaway with the option of being able to explore the area, together with excellent food and service then this is the place for you. We will certainly be returning as soon as we can.

We have just returned having spent ten wonderful at the la solara.

A common theme in other reviews is the quality of the food and I must agree. We stayed half board, I Have never seen such a choice of fruit at breakfast, fresh strawberries, cherries, peaches pineapple and a lot more, and really fresh not in syrup like in so many hotels, lovely pastries as well. The evening meal was always good quality, the desserts are by far the best course. Lunch and snacks are available by the pool through the day also

We arrived at 10pm and were unsure if we'd be able to get anything to eat, our agent had not let the hotel know what time we arrived so they kept us 3 platters of cold food, melon and parma ham, beef, mozzarella and salad, it was delicious.

The hotel staff were very friendly form the off, we required internet access and struggled initially but they gave us an ethernet cable and a wi fi booster so we could use the internet in the room, when we had difficulty they tested the time and sorted the problem. They advised us of trips to book, gave us a local timetable etc.

Our room was at the back of the hotel so we had no sun on our balcony at any time of the day, but the hotel was in such nice surroundings that we didn't really mind. Rooms at the back and on the left (as you are facing the hotel) do not get much sun and they can be dark. Small point I know.

The hotel seemed to be busy but u never struggled to get a bed by the pool and a good supply of towels, the pool attendant was very helpful, and always tidying up the beds if someone left.

The lounge/ bar area is very comfy to, they have entertainment a few nights a week local singers which we enjoyed but may not be everyone thing.

The hotel was spotlessly clean, with the maids turning your bed down each night and leaving a chocolate which was a lovely touch, We requested a kettle on our 2nd day and it was there in 10 mins.

We found a good supermarket just down the road from where the bus drops you off to stock up on a few bits for those days by the pool if you want to keep the cost down a bit, when the bus drops you off walk down the road for 5 mins ( in the direction the bus in facing) and the supermarket is on the right hand side, it is a large supermarket.

You can book trips through the hotel , we did this for Pompeii and when comparing with the agents in town it seemed to be competitive. The local bus which will take you up to Amalfi is 7.20 a day so good value and gives you the freedom to hop on and off when you wish.

All in all a wonderful in a wonderful place.

Room Tip: rooms on the back left corner, no sun and seemed to be smaller,

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.

Room Tip: Worth getting a sea view room!

Stayed here as was in Sorrento for a Wedding. We chose to stay apart from the main wedding party down the road at the more expensive Cape Demonte and we were glad for it.
This hotel is set outside of Sorrento alhough there is a free and regular shuttle bus, my only gripe being the last one back from Sorrento is a bit early at 11.15.
On arrival we had food given to us even though our flight was delayed and we didn't get there till almost midnight.
The rooms are clean and fairly well appointed and the bathroom we had was large. We were also at the front of the hotel and had an amazing view (even though we didn't request or pay for it)
I agree with other commentors that the rooms could better isolated as you do hear every noise going on around you.
Food wise it was really good and as we ate out they kindly swapped our half board evening meal for a really good lunch - in fact the portions are enormous!
The staff are all amazing, really friendly and have a great sense of humour. There is no evening entertainment to speak of although this didn't bother us as we were out all the time.
Our bar bill for the week was also really good value.
I would recommend this hotel if you like somewhere spotless and friendly but not if you are after a really lively hotel. Just ask for a room at the front.

Room Tip: Higher up rooms have much bigger balconies although I don't know if they cost more.
