Best Western Hotel La Solara Sorrento
Ranked #10 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2010

We were recommended to this hotel and after reading several futher recommendations on trip advisor we booked for 2 weeks, travelling with Thomson. It seemed expensive but given the glowing reviews we decided to give it a try.

The hotel is spotless, the staff are courteous and extremely helpful, the view from our sea view room was stunning. A special mention to Guiseppe and Angelo for there cheerful and attentitive service. The food was of a very high standard and there was plenty of it. The pool and surrounding area are extremely clean and well maintained, plenty of sunbeds and sunshades, to go around.

It is a little quieter than some hotels in the evening, the only entertainment being 2 keyboard players, 3 evenings a week, but this suited us and we could always take the courtesy bus into Sorrento if we wanted a more lively evening.

The location is out of the main Sorrento area, which did concern me initially, but the courtesy bus running hourly from 8 am to 11.15 pm, eleminated any issues.

The Neopolitan and Amalfi coasts are breathtakingly beautiful, we visited Capri, Pompei and Vesuvius, all very enjoyable trips. The tour of the Amalfi Coast was worth paying a little extra for and taking a minibus, it could get to places that the larger buses couldn't and the guide was very attentive.

I'm sure we will find ourselves back at the LaSolara in the future and wont hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.

We returned last week from a holiday in Sorrento at the hotel La Solara. We were made to feel very welcome during our stay at the hotel, the staff were extremely friendly. The food was excellent, and the rooms were very comfortable. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

This hotel is really ,really wonderful .All the staff are very friendly and helpful and seem to enjoy working in the hotel .
Nothing was a bother to either the restaurant staff or the reception staff.The food was out of this world. Cannot give strong enough recommendation.
The Area is beautiful and although the hotel is out of the town centre the courtesy bus runs every hour and is very relaible.
The swimming pool was great , very clean ,in fact the whole hotel was clean .The guests toilets at the pool and reception were always perfect.

Like many others I chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews. It without doubt was a nice hotel, in a nice setting, but I think a lot of the reviewers do raise expectations too high because as with the majority of hotels, it is far from perfect. Our room and bathroom were spacious with plenty of storage but the beds really are quite hard. We paid for a sea view which was worth every penny to see every last minute of the beautiful sunset.

We liked the food in the restaurant. There's lots of choice on the menu to suit those who want to try regional food, especially fish, and those who want something British. Again the food isn't 5 star, but it's good all round food that is plentiful in supply. You can fill up on the salad bar alone. Also, really don't eat anything on the day of the gala dinner. There are about 7 courses in total and by the time I got to the dessert, which was divine, I was too full to finish it. It was a lovely setting having the gala dinner outside, definitely the best evening there.

I was worried about the location despite knowing there was a courtesy bus. With a little planning it wasn't too much of a problem, especially as meal times weren't too laboured so you could easily get back into town for the evening. But please, don't expect to be able to walk anywhere from the hotel. It's really not possible and that's the main thing I missed, just being able to go for an evening stroll without getting the bus back into town. But you have to weigh that up with being away from the noise of the town and apart from the odd building, the hotel is very secluded.

As for the staff, they were great. The more you interacted with them, the more you got back from them. They were very friendly and helpful, and wouldn't mock you if you tried some Italian on them! They make the hotel what it is, and they are why it gets the great reviews on here despite some shortfalls (eg, location).

If we went back to Sorrento I would probably choose a hotel nearer the town. But I would do so reluctantly as I really can't imagine feeling as at home as I did at La Solara and would probably have to go back there another year!

Dear Loopylou 202,
Thank you for the nice words that you had for us and we, all, are very proud for it.
Our staff is always at the disposal and we are very sorry for the hard beds (they are new) but we have also softer beds and by your next visit ( we are sure that by your next visit in Sorrento you will be with us), please, ask for and we will surely change them.
Greetings from all our staff and the management

We were expecting a lot more based on previous reviews. It felt a little like we were at a different hotel! The staff are excellent and the pool and view is great but the hotel was not of the standard/decor we were expecting. The shuttle service was regular and easy for going in to the centre but we would stay more centrally next time.

The main disappointment was the food which was very average. Breakfast was consistently poor with a fresh fruit salad that was mainly apple and not that fresh, no freshly baked bread and hot options that were scrambled eggs and usually a strange sausage. We were on half board and found evening meals a challenge. Whilst the antipasti spread was good and the pasta usually quite good the main course was not. Some dishes were barely edible. I've stayed in the region before on half board and eaten very well at other hotels. We also had some fantastic meals in the town of sorrento (o'parruchiano and inn bufalito were particularly good) so we know how good the cooking in this region can be. We were not alone in our opinion on the food.

Overall a bit of a shame as we booked this hotel because of its reviews and had a disappointing holiday subsequently.

Dear LondonDinkies,
We are very sorry that you were very disappointed about our Hotel.
We are surely not the best Hotel in Sorrento but we try to give the best of us to our guests in every way.
Our restaurant managers & staff are always on duty, for the breakfast & for dinner, to look after our guests to help on choising of the menu ( 4/5 starters & 4/5 main courses) or for any other request and it is very strange that you found our kitchen sooo! bed!
We want to thank all our guests that had a wonderful holiday with us and we hope to have you again with us to make your holiday unforgettable.
Greetings
Ugo Di Maio,General Manager
