Comfortable hotel just outside Sorrento

Posted Sep 24, 2016
Pros: Staff at this hotel were freindly and very helpful. Could not do enough to make our stay pleasant
Just back from a very enjoyable stay in La Solara hotel. Found the room to be clean and comfortable with tea making facilities, mini bar, air con, and safe. Hotel is about a mile from the middle of Sorrento but has a free coach for travelling in and out which was very handy.

A fantastic hotel in Sorrento

Posted Nov 4, 2015 on Orbitz
We were here for four wonderful nights with friends. The hotel is a bit outside from the town centre but the shuttle service is excellent. The staff is experienced and very helpful. They are always smiling and willing to go out of the way to ensure a pleasant stay for guests. The breakfast is adequate and has something for everyone.

Excellent all round

Posted Oct 23, 2012
Pros: Exceptionally friendly staff. Excellent food and service.
Cons: None
Location: 3kms out of town, but hourly free shuttle bus ran from 8am to 11pm.
Excellent hotel all round. All staff from the management down were friendly and helpful. We stayed on half board basis, the food was delicious! Lots of choice at dinner and breakfast. Would recommend this hotel to everyone, couples, families and older people.

Great hotel, amazing staff - out of Sorrento

Posted Oct 4, 2012
The hotel is brilliant. The staff are friendly, helpful and attentive. The rooms are very clean and in the evening the bed is turned down and a chocolate left which was a nice touch. The pool area is great and gets loads of sun through the day, not that we were around a lot as there are so many sites to see. The hotel has lots of excursions that can be booked through them, they seemed to be well priced and you would be taken and picked up from the meeting point. We did feel like we had to fend for ourselves sometimes when we arrived at the meeting points though as there are so many guides and you need to find out which one is yours!! We found the guests at the hotel were mostly older, I guess this is because the hotel is a way out of Sorrento. They have a shuttle bus running from 8am till 11pm, which is great unless you fancy staying out for a few later drinks, a taxi back is 25 Euros. It’s a 15 minute drive so the walk would take ages and the road really isn't the safest. Hope this is helpful

A wonderful retreat

Posted May 8, 2012 on Hotels
We headed out to Sorrento to relax after a busy week with students in Rome and Florence. This place was hard to find when first coming from the train station, but once we figured out where the free shuttle picks up, it offered a nice respite. We had a HUGE room, especially by Italian standards, with 2 TVs! The staff was very friendly and competent, and there were nice little touches, like complimentary wine & sweets. The wifi comes and goes, but that seems to happen all over Italy. There was a very nice breakfast buffet with a view overlooking the sea. Same with the pool – and as a swimmer, I was very glad to finally stay somewhere with a pool big enough to swim laps. But it’s also nice just for lounging. Getting into town was a bit of a chore with the shuttle, but it’s nice to be up on the hill away from the hustle and bustle. If you want a relaxing retreat, this should do it.

Hotel Solara

Posted Apr 30, 2012
Pros: Very professionaly run
Cons: Food and drink was expensive compared with the rest of Italy, no alt. restaraunts within easy reach, Did not tell us where to pick up the shuttle bus
Location: Outside of Sorrento with nothing close by BUT hourly shuttel bus.
Traditional upmarket hotel, outside of Sorrento aimed at the package tour market. Plus points - extremly well & proffesionally managed if a bit old fashioned. Minus - No local alternatives to the hotel restaraunt unless you go into Sorrento. Hotel restaraunt is good for a 3 course meal but there is no alternative selling Pizza and snacks. Food is dearer than in Sorrento where there is a lot of competition.

Wonderful hotel, family friendly, great views!

Posted Apr 14, 2012
Location: The location is very hilly. It is not accessible on foot due to no pavements and the steep nature of the roads but there is a regular minibus service.
The only concern I would raise about this hotel was that it was advertised as air conditioned. There was in fact air conditioning in the room but it was not switched on (Arpil) I do not know if this is a policy not to switch it on until later in the season or if it is never switched on? I did ask for a fan and was provided with an air conditioner but it was large and bulky and noisy so not really appropriate. There were balcony doors that could be opened though but we were on a low floor and I didn't want to leave them open all night. The hotel was very family friendly with free pool side towels & free table tennis which the boys loved. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The views from the hotel are spectacular, I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Near towns....far from the crowds. The entire staff was superb in every way. Best views are from the top floor !!!! We stayed here in early October.
