“A Hotel that exceeds expectations”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Having visited Italy on several occasions and been disappointed with the hotel standards we experienced, it was a complete joy to stay at a hotel that exceeds expectations in every way. It is clear that the staff at La Solara have a pride in all that they do. From the efficient and friendly reception to a magnificent restaurant overseen by the marvellous Marcello everyone is keen to ensure guests are well looked after. Special mention must go to Angello and his bar staff, with Giuseppe looking after diners wine orders like a military exercise! The sea view rooms are excellent and the housekeeping staff maintain them in a spotless fashion. We can only endorse the positive comments given by previous reviewers. Don't be put off by the location, the shuttle bus can be used to visit Sorrento as and when you wish. We shall certainly return and have already recommended this hotel to friends and family

Room Tip: Corner Sea view on 3rd and 4th floors

Another fantastic holiday (4th time) made all the more pleasurable by the hotel staff. Each and every one of them is a credit to this lovely hotel....... We will be back again.

A few notes for those that are considering booking. This is not a lively hotel, it is quiet and the evening entertainment is limited but that suits us. It is a couple of miles outside Sorrento but the hotel has a free 'hourly' bus service. The restaurant is waiter service but the food is plentiful and of excellent quality. The bar is reasonably priced. Rooms are spacious and very clean. The hotel will provide a kettle in the room. Towels are offered twice a day and the beds are turned down and chocolate left at bedtime which is a nice touch. There is a small harbour about a 20 minute walk away but its a bit of a steep climb coming back. The only very very minor negative comment would be that the free wi-fi seems a bit temperamental as is the mobile phone signal which business users might find a problem. Ovverall mark 9.9 out of 10.

We were in Sorrento for wedding and chose La Solara as we needed a family room. Ours was amazing...a separate sleeping area for the children , a huge balcony (room406) and Grandad was next door in room 408. Brilliant atmosphere, great swimming pool, amazing food spotless and we were treated very well by all. The staff are amazing, they were brilliant with the kids, spoilt them rotten and looked after us all throughout our stay. A week was NOT long enough! Staying in La Solara was like being part of an efficient clockwork machine that worked perfectly...rarely does a hotel make you feel that you are their most important guests, but they did, and I'm sure will continue to do so for every single guest that stays there. Gratzi to all!

Had a fabulous two week holiday at this outstanding hotel in May/June. We have been fortunate enough to stay at some really good hotels but La Solara beats them all and exceeded all our expectations. The staff are all excellent and work tirelessly to ensure that everything runs smoothly.Our only reservation on booking this hotel was that it is located a little out of the centre of Sorrento. This was not a problem as the hotel shuttle bus was efficient,reliable,convenient and ran from early morning till late at night.We would not hesitate to recommend La Solara to friends and family and in fact have already done so. We hope to return to Sorrento soon and will without a doubt stay again at La Solara!

We are not in the habit of returning 3 times in 18 months to an hotel but this is what La Solara and Sorrento does to sensible people!
We received such a warm welcome and a room in the penthouse floor 5! Only 4 rooms with large balconies and ours 508 overlooked olive grove and sea, being at the side we didn't get to hear the usual scraping of cars along the road walls at night!
The courtesy bus is a godsend, the local beach has improved a lot and we were lucky when a local took pity on us and drove us back to the top of the hill.
The staff are so courteous and happy in their work, no-one fails to give 100% which says a lot about the management too. The food once again fantastic and catered for my coeliac diet really thoughtfully especially on gala night.
We did not do any trips this time as a recent illness meant it was more of an r&r visit, but little trips into town to watch the world go by and drink lovely wine and eat fresh tomatoes and mozzarella did the trick.
Well done to all.

We have just enjoyed two weeks at La Solara. Our room (404) was very quiet, with a great sea view and a very large balcony which enjoyed sunshine from mid afternoon until sunset (which was very scenic). The room was very well maintained; towels were changed morning and night, if required, bed sheets twice a week, and although the bed was a bit hard, it was not that bad really. Late check out was available for us which was great as we had a later flight home so we enjoyed a final day in the pool.
The food was of very good quality and as you have probably read, you have about 5 options for each course. I found the fish dishes exceptional and a word about the packed lunch - superb! Ours contained hot items (breaded chicken and omelette), cold items (cheese and ham), fruit, a roll and a carton of juice. A feast!
The hotel is on the outskirts of Sorrento and whilst the courtesy bus between Sorrento is very good, and by all accounts one of the most frequent (hourly), it also saves you 25 Euro each way compared to equivalent taxi fares. But you do need to plan ahead as there is nowhere to really walk to from the hotel i.e. no local pubs or shops. There is however a beach nearby (take a right from the hotel for about 300 metres then a 10 minute walk down a zig-zag road and a twenty minute walk back up) where you can have a sunbed and umbrella for 5 Euro's each and a choice of venues for snacks. I'm not too sure how much is open in the evening as we were only there during the day.
The pool area, like the hotel lounges, are very spacious and welcoming. The pool snack food is of course of very good quality but the portions are far too large - one dish e.g. sandwich and French fries or pizza easily feeds two people.
A word about the trips you may take e.g. to Capri, Pompeii, Amalfi Drive, the entrance fees (where applicable) and lunch (which we found very poor) are not always included in the trip cost.
I would also say a word in support of the free one hour Italian lessons at the hotel - please try these. One is on basic expressions (which was extremely useful) and the other on conversation in the restaurant (again extremely useful).
So in summary, we might not be in the club who return here year on year but we do applaud the friendly service (particularly in the restaurant and poolside) and overall cleanliness. La Solara punches above its weight on both counts. We will certainly return when we feel a need to chill out, and relax.
Thank you La Solara.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms have bigger balconies and you can opt for a pool or sea view. When we return, I t...

Dear Norriel1958,
it is with great pleasure to read your review and appreciate heartily with all the staff who see their hard work recognized by our Guests. I have read that hardly you return to the same area for your holidays but I'm sure you'll soon have homesickness for Sorrento and we will be here to greet you. By your next visit to have a nice walk to Sorrento is a good suggestion: Take our shuttle At Set Times, where it begins to get off the path (about 1000/1500 meters) and from there enjoy the magnificent view of the marina grande, the Vesuvius and the beautiful coast. After this beautiful walk take our shuttle from the bus stop and return to the tranquility of LA SOLARA

After two and one half weeks of sightseeing different regions of Italy, La Solara was our last stop. This hotel is more like a resort. A beautiful pool and deck area to relax. Great dining room with reasonable prices and good food. The commons area is a gathering place to relax a the end of the day. The staff is extremely attentive and eager to please and very friendly. Rooms are large and comfortable. Perfect ending to our Italian vacation
