Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 October 2009

once again our stay at the hotel proved excellant. It really made our holiday that bit extra special, our thanks to the staff who were really attentive and extremely polite and courteous, nothing is too much trouble for them!!
I would highly recommend a stay at this hotel!!! The food is really top class and the chefs had pulled out all the stops to cater for everyones tastes including a regional dish for guests to try if they wanted.
The rooms are very well put together and the maid service is excellant too with a turning down service on a night along with a chocolate which is a nice touch. All in all an excellant hotel with excellant staff!!!

I really liked this hotel, especially the breakfast and style of the room. Breakfast was a selection of pastries, croissants, rolls, or you could make toast, with jams and cold meats. There were a few different hot items every day, such as mini sausages, tomatoes and scrambled eggs. I particularly enjoyed the fruit salad and yogurts. The coffee is very strong but we eventually got the balance right with the hot milk. We had dinner once at the hotel and that was also very good. We only wanted a main-course each, but they invited us to help ourselves at the salad bar and they had lovely appetizers, so it was like a starter! I had the penne sorrentino, which was delicious.
The room was lovely, with traditional Italian tiles on the floor. However, the room was very basic - no coffee-making facilities, the hair-dryer was an attachment on the bathroom wall (no good), and the safe was very small indeed (we only just managed to squeeze in our passports, travel money, sunglasses case with my jewellery in it and my purse). We found the room with a complimentary bottle of wine and we received a chocolate every evening at turn-down. However, the maid did not replace our toiletries as necessary and one evening we returned to the room to find that they had removed some sweets I had been gradually collecting from the front desk. This made me feel terrible like I wasn't supposed to have taken them, but they were also complimentary. When my partner spoke to the concierge about it, he simply replied that we should take some more!
Also, our room was on the back of the hotel where the sun never came round, so we never got the use of our balcony. The pool area was very nice though, with lots of beds facing the sun and the pool is huge. The pool was definitely not heated, but it was fine when you got in. We tried the pool cafe one day with friends, the food was nice but took a long time to come out.
The location of the hotel was nice as it was secluded and you could just see out to the water, however these views are not as impressive as you might get if you stay further down the street. Also, there is no pavement from La Solara leading down into town, so if you want to walk then you have to walk on the small, busy road! We tried this one evening and it wasn't too bad. It did take a long time though, at least twenty minutes before the pavement started. The rest of the trip we used the free bus that the hotel provided, which left the hotel every hour on the hour (6am-11pm) dropped you off at the Hotel Cesare at about quarter past, which was also the pick-up point and time when you wanted to return. This bus was very convenient, hence it did sometimes get busy with some people having to stand (it was only a small bus - see my photos). We got stung for taxis on our first evening in Sorrento - E20 down to the Bristol Hotel (where the pavement starts) and E25 back! Others told us that taxi drivers hiked up the prices because its end of season and if overcharged, you have to just call the police. We didn't take a taxi again until our last night when we managed to arrange a fixed price of E25 from the main square in Sorrento back to La Solara.
I would definitely stay here again if I was to return to Sorrento. I would ask for a sun-facing room and I would bring my own hair-dryer.

Stayed here for a week. Superb food, staff were just fantastic, very friendly, homely feel. Rooms were great, pool beautiful. The fitness room was a real bonus for me, as the roads are a little scary for running. I will definitely be back. Travelled with Thompsons, through Sally Landers, Travel Counsellors.

Recently returned with my two daughters, (24 & 19 years respectively), from a 2 week stay at this lovely hotel. I'm not going to go on about how superb the staff are as I did that last year, but the welcome we received was lovely :-) it was like staying with 'old friends'. Only one member of staff seemed to have changed from last year which tells me that the guys running La Solara are a close knit team. What I would like to write about though is the entertainment team at the hotel, ie. the duo known as Lello Petricciuolo & Carlo Maresca. These guys play at La Solara three evenings a week, on Gala Dinner Night (Sundays), Tuesdays & Thursdays. They play a variety of upbeat songs in Italian, Spanish & English. Guests are encouraged to dance, if they want, or to sing. Lello has a huge repertoire of songs in his karaoke collection & both he and Carlo are very encouraging guys :-) Check them out on Youtube (La Solara) We will be back next next year & love you all XxX

My friend and I went to this hotel to celebrate our 30th birthdays, so were hoping for a bit of luxury, a bit of spoiling and a lovely setting. It was beyond our hopes - the setting was beautiful, a little out of Sorrento so very peaceful, set on a hill overlooking the sea, amid groves of olive trees. The hotel was so beautifully presented, with beautiful airy public areas. The staff were the most helpful and friendly that I've ever met - nothing was too much trouble. My friend has a gluten allergy and special food was laid on with no fuss and at no extra charge. That alone took a lot of stress out of the holiday. Our room was lovely, with plenty of storage space and a stunning view over the local port of Puerto di Puolo and the island of Ischia. The food was consistently excellent, and I'd definitely recommend going to the gala dinner on Sunday evenings - many courses of wonderful food at a very reasonable price. There just aren't enough compliments to pay to this hotel! I can't wait to go back - when we left it felt like we were leaving friends. I hope to take my family there in the near future.

The hotel was immaculate- the rooms, lobby and pool area all sparkled. The staff were very friendly- the barman at the pool area would always rush over to help move sunbeds around, put umbrellas up and provide towels. We were concerned about the hotel's location but the shuttle bus to town was so convenient that it made no difference- in fact it was better as people in hotels on the edge of the town had to walk all the way in while we were dropped off almost in the centre! In La Solara, there was some noise from the road but not enough for it to be a bother. The only negative point is that the food and drinks in the hotel were very expensive- even small bar snacks and bottles of water were eye wateringly expensive, especially due to the poor exchange rate. However, as soon as we saw the prices we jumped on the shuttle bus to town and stocked up on bottles of water and snacks from the supermarket very cheaply! Also the convenience of the bus meant we could nip into town for lunch. The town was spilling with restaurants to choose from for dinner- so you never have to pay for the expensive food in the hotel if you want to avoid it! Oh and be warned they say they will charge you if you want to use the mini fridge in your room for your own drinks which is a cheek.
