I booked this Hotel for 4 nights based on the TA reviews and I couldn't be happier. Upon arriving from the Stazione via an over priced Taxi (30e for a 10min spin is atrocious). The Hotel staff welcomed us armly and we were greeted by amazing views of Bay of Naples/Vesuvius and a very large open airy reception area. Our room on the 2nd floor was massive but the view wasn't great as we could only see the corner of the pool and no view of the sea. However it was spotlessly clean. We didn't spend a lot of time there to be honest.
The breakfast was excellent, a super spread of continental breakfast including scrambled eggs/bacon/mushrooms or sautéed potatoes. It set us up nicely for the day. We never had dinner there so I cannot comment on this. There is a gala dinner every Sunday night but it wasn't our scene. The clientele of the hotel is mainly elderly couples so the nightlife is fairly sedate. Also the decor is a bit dated but you get over that as it has a bit of charm.
The shuttle bus is so handy, however the latest bus home is 11:15. You'd be advised to get this as you could not walk to the hotel and the taxi fare is disgraceful. The pool is without doubt the highlight of the hotel 23m x 13m and as clean as I've ever seen. I wish I spent more time in Sorrento for this pool alone! All in all we loved our 4 nights here in La Solara. All the staff were very friendly from reception to bar staff to bus driver.
