“Good value - and great pool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2009

Although it's a fair distance out of town, the Hotel Solara is a good base for visiting Sorrento so long as you're happy with waiting for the hourly free shuttle bus into and back from the centre.

It's a large, resort-style hotel; perhaps not the most chic design, but pleasant, comfortable and helpful. Free wi-fi is a good feature. But the greatest praise is due for its substantial 25m outdoor pool.

There's the option to have dinner in the restaurant (reasonably priced), and there was piano-bar style entertainment which was fun (while bearing an ever-so-slight resemblance to an Italian version of Smith & Jones's cheesy cocktail bar entertainers).

The staff make this hotel so enjoyable to stay in. Without being intrusive they make the visitor welcome and do everything possible to satisfy our wishes. Nowhere else have we found staff and a meal waiting when our flight was delayed by bad weather causing us to arrive well outside restaurant hours; similarly for our return breafast was laid on from 0545.
We hope to return for a 4th holiday and maybe more.

Just returned from our honeymoon and spent half our time at this hotel. We got a great deal through the website on a room with a view and huge terrace. The staff were so unbelievably helfpul, from arranging pick up to/from the airport, getting us to/from the hospital when my husband was feeling sick (it was free! a shock to those of us from the US!), giving us recommendations etc. They would go out of their way to make sure we were having a great time. The food at the restaurant is very good. There is a daily menu that was 25 euro per person for drink, 2 dishes, and a dessert. There is a salad bar each night which is minimal salad and mostly amazing vegetables, so delicious. The shuttle to/from the city was timely, I wouldn't recommend walking into town. The best hotel I've ever stayed at.

We stayed at La Solara in the third week of October 2009. We were most impressed. The room was comfortable, the staff were polite and friendly (without being familiar), and we got the impression of a very well-run and happy establishment. We were on half-board, and soon found ourselves looking forward to the evening meal. The menu was varied, with a good collection of local specialities, and the portiions were almost too generous (!)
Although some three kilometres form the town centre, the hotel runs an hourly shuttle bus from early in the morning until late at night, making it handier for central Sorreento than some establishments that were theoretically nearer, but required a walk along the pavement-less coast road.
Strongly recommended. We would happily stay again.

We booked this hotel, partly due to the reviews,i liked the look of the pool as i do a bit of swimming to keep fit,and as we were there for a fortnight it seemed like a good idea after the food.i booked a room with a sea view and balconey, on arriving in the room, room was very nice, lovely sea view, however the balconey was so small you could not sit and face the sea it was that small, i complained to the staff who were ok about it but it would take a week to change which they did to a high floor with a much bigger balconey.when we go back i would not pay for a sea view or balconey, this did not spoil a very good holiday.
The staff are all very good, polite and very helpful, the drivers do a supurb job driving up and down to sorrento all day every day,
The rooms are all very nice, very clean and comfortable.
The food is plentyful,so much so that we could not eat all the courses. for lunch we walked down to the beach where there are a number of cafes at a good price as the hotel is exspensive to buy lunch and drinks.
The pool is superb plenty of sun beds and no putting towels out early, the swimming pool itself was very clean and well looked after,as it is compatition pool 25 m not olympic which is 50m it was great to swim lenghts as a lot of other people did to work off the food . i read in another review that the pool was going to be refubished, if it is dont change the style as it was a great selling point for us.
Sorrento and the surrounding area is beautiful we will be returning.

This was a last minute idea to return for our 11th visit in 9 years.
The staff were as wonderful as ever and the food in the restaurant was superb. The location a little out of sorrento but with a regular and reliable hotel bus of about 10 minutes into the centre of town gives you the best of both worlds.There cannot be a cleaner better organised our managed hotel anywhere to compete with La Solara. Just check out the number of returnees we are fairly low on the totem pole. We are looking forward to our 12th visit in May 2010.

We were staying at La Solara because of my grandparents anniversary and the hotel was brilliant. The food was good and on the gala dinner (Sundays) it was a 5 course meal! The swimming pool is heated but is still cold in October. The gym is good, but 2 things dont work. And the WiFi takes FOREVER to load
Apart Fromm that, very nice *****

We thank you for giving us your mind and you can be sure that it gives us the possibility for better service. The two things in the gym are already repaired and for the wifi we hope that by your next visit we will have a better internet line.
We hope to have you again with us in a not distant future.
