“Lots of smiles and excellent food!”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

Spent a fortnight at La Solara; it is situated about 10 minutes' drive from Sorrento, an hourly free shuttle is available from the hotel and back. The hotel consists of mainly British guests. It is spotlessly clean and our room was plenty big enough for 3 adults. We were welcomed to the hotel with champagne and nibbles and there was a free bottle of wine in our room. This was the ethos of the hotel during our stay. Each member of the team is extremely welcoming, friendly and efficient in every part of the hotel. There is a large pool suitable for swimming lengths and a smaller toddler pool. There is a poolside bar and plenty of sunbeds - no need to put your towels out at 6am as the pool attendant will happily put out more beds. That half stone of weight you want to lose before your holiday make it a stone before you come here as the food is absolutely amazing. Buffet style breakfast, lunches we shared in the end as they were huge and then in the evening, buffet salads and then a 3-course sit down dinner served by the wonderful waiters. Thanks to our waiter for 7 massive profiteroles one night!! On a Sunday there is a gala dinner where everyone is made to feel so special. We were especially privileged to hear Angelo singing on a number of occasions and, of course, all the way from Las Vegas, the hugely talented 'Pepe'!! Each member of the team should be proud of themselves from us all in room Cento Ventidue!! For trips to Pompeii, Vesuvius, Amalfi Coast etc, it is easy and cheap to use public transport which was also reliable. We would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is wonderful. The staff makes you feel like royalty. It was a pleasure staying here for 4 days. You will not regret your stay here. Upon arrival they gave us a bottle of homemade red wine, and when leaving gave us a gift-a painting. So amazing will definitely go back!!! My one minor issue is the sea view I paid a lot for wasn't a direct view. Be very specific if you want that view.

We have just spent a great fortnight at this beautiful hotel. The staff are so freindly and helpful and the food is amazing with lots of choice and very large portions. The pool is a good size with plenty of sunbeds. The whole place is spotlessly clean. The location is very peaceful, but it only takes 10 minutes to get into Sorrento on the courtesy bus. We will definitely come back to this hotel.

This hotel is a little gem, the best we have ever stayed in. The service was faultless, all the staff are so friendly and helpful, and the whole hotel was spotlessly clean. As for the food, just take elastic waist clothes, you will definitely need them. This hotel does not know the meaning of portion control, and the food is excellent and very plentiful .If you just fancy a quite day the pool is excellent, very clean and well cared for with plenty of room for all.
If you want tea and coffee facilities in the room ask at reception same goes for softer pillows etc
The hotel is in a quiet area just outside the city but provides an excellent courtesy bus service to and from Sorrento, where there is an abundance of shops and yet more friendly people who all spoke English pretty well ( a lot better than my Italian).
We did the trips out to the usual tourist places, some with Thomson’s others we made our own way, but I think the highpoint was the Vesuvius 4 x 4 select with the wine tasting and light lunch ( which wasn’t light at all), a bit higher on the cost than the normal trip but well worth the extra.
Would we go back ? Oh yeah !!!

Room Tip: Pay the extra for sea views, stunning !

Lovely, considerate and helpful staff. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Great pool with a fabulous review. Good food, terrific donuts for breakfast (with a wide choice of hot and cold alternatives). A great base for Sorrento and around. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the La Solara on July 4th and 5th. The room was clean and spacious. There was a nice pool on the grounds. The hotel provides a shuttle that runs on the hour. This is necessary because the property is located just a few km from the main 'downtown' area. The shuttle was run on a convenient schedule which made the location not an issue. In fact, I liked the fact that it was located in a more quiet area. At night we would enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace with a beautiful view of the sea. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The shuttle pick up and drop off is right behind the train station. One day we took a train to Pompeii, which was very easy to get too. We didn't have to pre-book the train nor a guided tour on-site.
We timed our trip on our anniversary. The hotel had a nice welcome plate and bottle of sparkling wine to help us celebrate. It was a nice touch. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

I spent a lovely time at the Best Western La Solara. A Beautiful swimming pool where you can lay down and relax, a lovely pool bar with amazing food. The staff are always nice and polite and ready to help you, in particular Fabio at the Reception. Another peak that makes la Solara different from all other Hotels is the "Gala Night" with the Piano Bar. The views are amazing, you wake up and you are able to see the Island of Capri. I would recommend any own to try it.
