3 nights in Sorrento. We were there for a few hours as part of a tour from our Mediterranean Cruise 2 years ago. We loved it then and we still love it. After 4 cab rides, 2 ferries and a 3 hour bus ride to get there from Corfu we were tired. We stayed at the hotel the first day, had a swim, and a great meal at the hotel. A little expensive for the …
... quite happy about meeting Giuseppe.
Later on, the guys in the architect apartment offered to make us dinner, and we spent a couple of hours eating, drinking, and just chatting it up. My mom was caught up on gossip within the group (she loves being in-the-know), and then came the display of embarrassing pictures my dad finds of me on his phone. Damn technology.
On Thursday I took my parents to the ruins ...
... It's a very cute hillside town with lots of small streets. Positano was very crowded, but we enjoyed our stroll around before heading back on the road.
The next stop was Ravello. It took some time getting there...as the road along the Amalfi Coast isn't just winding, it is super tight and there were a lot of buses on the road. Glad we hired a driver...there was no way I would've been prepared to navigate this ...

Jim and Ruth joined Julianne, Ian and ourselves for dinner at the Patio Grill tonight and plans have been made to have dinner at Restaurant 2 with them on the last night.
Need to get to bed since the captain is going to spend ½ hour around Stromboli at 5am tomorrow morning so we can catch the volcano’s eruption. It apparently erupts every 20 minutes or so and against the dawn sky should be spectacular.
... used as an instruction manual for 'lovemaking'. What struck me as the obvious open air life of the citizens. There are a myriad of roadside bars and cafes because they tended to luncheon alfresco, stoping at these restaurants which were divided into rooms, including the famous triclinium where they lay on beds to eat. The city in its heyday boasted a population of between 10000 and 20000 inhabitants all living their life. The town was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Best Western Hotel La Solara Sorrento
Sorrento in June
We have just returned from a weeks holiday at the La Solara hotel in Sorrento and had a great time. We had read all of the reviews on this site before going and were not surprised when we arrived. The hotel is well appointed and the staff really can't do enough for you, no matter what you ask for. We were away for my wife's birthday, and the chef had made a birthday cake for a surprise dessert, a really nice surprise.
The only negative comments that we had, were that the hotel would be even better if it had a gym, or some other activities other than the just the pool. Internet access, other than that provided via the ports in certain rooms if you have your own laptop, would also have been nice.
Overall we had a great holiday in a really nice hotel.
Just back from 7 days at La Solara. Was a bit apprehensive at first as the hotel is situated out of town but this wasn't a problem in the end. The free hotel courtesy bus runs into Sorrento regularly throughout the day (and in the evening) and only takes about 10 minutes. The hotel is situated on a coast road but there is little noise and you can sit and watch the Italian drivers overtaking on the bend below - great entertainment.
We visited Sorrento in March 2005 and stayed at the Hotel La Solara. The rooms, food and staff were excellent - nothing was too much trouble. Free transport was provided to take/return you from the centre of Sorrento -timetables allocated in your room. We will certainly return. An ideal place for couples, all age groups and families.
Very nice hotel outside of town
Spent 3 nights here in May 2005 and enjoyed it. Our room was quite nice with a balcony looking out to the pool. Staff goood. The only real drawbacks were the location outside of town and the dinner service in the restaurant. They had a shuttle bus to town about every hour but if your schedule didn't permit use of the shuttle, a cab cost about 15 euro. The dinner in the restaurant was what I view as typical of a tourist hotel, only a multi-course, fixed-price option, no ala carte ability. Breakfast was good, with scrambled eggs, a meat, yogurt, fruit, etc. every morning.
Couldn't ask for better
A great relaxing hotel with very friendly, helpful staff who didn't give the impression that they were always after a tip. The food was excellent, the rooms clean and tidy, and the one's facing the sea - what a view.The only drawback is the distance from town, probably walkable for the young and fit but the road is bendy and there is no pavement, so walking is definitely not an option for anyone pushing a buggy or walking with young children. However the regular shuttle bus easily compensates for this. In total all the pluses far outweigh the one small minus and we would certainly go back again
25/sept/04 We booked a late deal with Thomson, like many of the people staying at our hotel, being situated out of the town its not everyones first choice hotel, but it is much quieter (apart from every vehicle bigger than a car honking its horn when it goes round the bend outside the hotel.
You won't be disappointed
I stayed here from 23-30 July 2004, a charming hotel. The hotel is lovely, our room was very clean the air conditioning was a great help as the weather can be quite humid. Food, well it is plentiful and delicious, if you appreciate good food you'll enjoy being half board. The pool was gorgeous a good size and very clean. Staff were very professional and friendly. The location of the hotel is slightly difficult to reach to walk in and out of Sorrento (the walk is steep and there is no footpath and the driving can be a bit on the crazy side) but do not worry as the hotel provides a courtesy bus. It is doubtful that you will fail to enjoy your stay at this hotel.
We (2 adults 30 & 30) went as part of a Thomson package from the UK in May 2004. The hotels is modern, clean and tidy with very friendly and helpful mature staff.
I want to go back
La Solara is one of the best hotels I have ever visited. The food is plentiful and excellent quality, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and towels changed daily. Although there is a road at the front of the hotel, no noise could be heard once the balcony door is closed (there is air conditioning in the summer). The hotel is outside Sorrento but a courtesy bus takes you to and from Sorrento 8 or 9 times a day. If the bus is full, the driver will come back to pick you up. I would definetly recommend this hotel for adults
