Looking for 10 days in Neapolitan Riviera this summer

Options
Hi,

Sorry to make a new thread, I've looked for the ongoing 'request' thread and can't find it anywhere.

My PIL are trying to book a holiday for this summer. They are both teachers, and can travel anytime after 24th July for 10 days. They are after Neapolitan Riviera, 5* accommodation; preferably half board but would consider B&B. Flying from the North West.

They did find a deal they were interested in, but when they came to book it had gone :-( Budgetwise I think they're looking between £1000 - £1700 (for them both) or a touch more for something really special.

They especially like Sorrento, but doesn't have to be there. Most important is a top class hotel which is hopefully not miles away from everything. All they can seem to find now is rooms with sea views which costs from £10-£20 per person extra per night, there don't seem to be any rooms left with non sea views which is pushing prices right up.

Thanks.

    A really good hotel is " La Solara" on outskirts of Sorrento.

    You cant walk into Sorrento, but there is a free minibus service every hour or so to the centre of Sorrento.

    Check the reviews at https://www.holidaysuncovered.co.uk

    Hope that helps

    Thanks for everyone'e help and suggestions. They booked yesterday and funnily enough they've gone for the Solara. They had reservations regarding how isolated it was, but have decided they'll be able to pay for taxis and it'll be worth it. cost about £1100 - although that is only B&B as there was no HB option unfortunately.
