This was our second stay at La Solara making a return visit after our first stay in October 2011.
We liked it so much we came back home and booked straight away! From our arrival we were made to feel like honoured guests. Nothing is too much trouble for the happy dedicated staff. We
were amazed to receive a complimentary bottle of wine,fruit basket,fresh flowers, canapes and champagne on ice as soon as we got to our room. Just to thank us for coming back!
Rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable.
Food choice is amazing for dinner and such good quality.The Gala dinner was fantastic.
Don't expect English fare, after all you are in Italy. Embrace the culture!
However, we still like our tea in the room so one tip is to ask for a complimentary kettle and tea and coffee for your room on arrival if you want this.
The hotel is in a beautiful setting a few miles from Sorrento. However this is not a problem as the hotel's reliable courtesy bus runs on the hour from 8 am to 11pm. Sorrento is a charming,
picturesque town full of Italian character. Take time to explore the shops and narrow streets.
Do try to arrange your own trips by public transport. Its much cheaper than Thomsons. Although for the Amalfi drive we hired a private taxi via the hotel with an English speaking guide
Ask for Giovanni an excellent safe driver
(At 40 euros/hour shared between 4 of us we thought it good value and the taxi can get to places the larger buses can't. Saves your legs on steep parts of Positano for example)
Do walk down to the little beach of Marina di Puolo across from the hotel. An easy walk down,
and a steep pull back up, but its through pretty olive and lemon groves.
It was an excellent holiday despite the terrible wet weather. The hotel itself is a huge reason for the great holiday. Its HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
