Phil and Julie welcome you to La Solana Pet Hotel.

About Us

La Solana Pet Hotel was first licenced back in the 1980s and since 2005 has been owned and managed by myself Philip, and my partner Julie.  We have a great love for animals and we have over  15 years experience here in Spain in looking after dogs, cats and a whole host of other animals.  We have a passion for horses,  and have two of our own living very happily here on site.

Based in Xaló, our pet hotel is located in the peaceful countryside of the Jalón Valley and is an ideal place to leave your beloved pets while you enjoy a holiday or a weekend away.

We cater for all breeds/sizes of dogs and have a specially designed cattery within a safe, secure setting.  Our experienced staff are on site and are always sympathetic to your pets individual needs, making sure our animal boarders receive the best care & attention

At our Pet Hotel, we are totally dedicated to providing a friendly, caring and secure environment so that you can relax during  your time away knowing full well that your pet is enjoying the personal attention they receive whilst staying with us.

We do realise that leaving your pet in a kennel/cattery can be very worrying for owners, so we do recommend anyone to inspect our facilities before booking, to put your mind at rest. No appointment is necessary for inspections at our dog kennels/cattery.  All we request is that you pop along during our opening hours.

Please call us if you have doubts or questions.

Thank you! Barney has come home totally relaxed and looking & smelling lovely! It is such a comfort knowing that he is being so well cared for when we have to go away. It was also fantastic to see him follow Phil when he went for Barneys lead this morning, however excited he was to see us. Can’t recommend you guys highly enough.

When living in Spain, we brought our dogs and cats often to Phil and Julie. Always very friendly and helpful. Our animals seemed to love goiing there 
Highly recommended!

We used Solana a number of times for overnight stays and doggy daycare whilst staying in Orba. Naomé (our dog) loved going there and it was very safe, secure and clean. Phil and his team were very friendly and helpful. We would use them again if we are back in the area. Highly recommended!

We unfortunately had to put our German shepherd in to kennels for 7 weeks while we were buying our house. She was well cared for and was very happy there. The kennel was also able to groom her and clip her nails. Excellent friendly service with good accommodation for your furry freind
