We booked our reservation late in the day and upon arrival we were greeted with an unexpected and much appreciated upgrade to a suite. The accommodations were beautiful - complete with a jacuzzi in the living room. The most amazing part of the suite was the view overlooking the temple ruins glowing in the the evening light. This magical view...

My wife and I decided we're split on the assesment of Hotel Villa Athena in Agrigento. For the most part she found the hotel and our experience as generally excellent. I found it somewhat less in almost all departments. As a measure of standard, we have stayed at many '5-star' hotels across Europe (London, Paris, Rome, etc.) and to me,...

The Villa Athena hotel is located in the valley of the temples, we had a perfect view of the main temple from our room. The restaurants are also 5 star in service and food quality, plus superb temple views on the terrace restaurant. Clearly the best place to stay in Agrigento!

This renovated hotel is located on the most beautiful site of the Vallei del Temple. Almost every room has a balcony with a view of Concordia temple, and is fully equipped.The outdoor restaurant is recommended: good food, with piano... romantic!

We had a room that had unobstructed views of the Temple Concordia, and it was breathtaking. I forgave all the minor things that would usually irk me (i.e. less than stellar sound insulation, double booked confirmation - which they quickly fixed) because the views were just so gorgeous, day and night. The hotel itself was beautiful, set in an old...

We enjoyed a 2 night stay here after a week in a Eurocamp in the north of Sicily so we were looking forward to 5* treatment. & that is what we got! Fabulous & welcoming reception staff. Travelling as a family of 4, we were given room 101 which was enormous, spotlessly clean with all the mod cons one would...

We went to two different hotels in agrigento, and villa athena was miles better than the other (yet 4 stars) hotel. Great service, attention to detail, location etc. A 5 star place as you'd expect. The view on the temples is fantsastic. If you don't stay there at the hotel, you should at least get an aperitivo (or dinner) there....

We spent two nights at this hotel which was a splurge we were looking forward to because of its extraordinary location. The hotel is very nice in appearance and exquisitely sited. We had a lovely bedroom with a terrace overlooking the Temple Concordia. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Regrettably we never had maid service and our dishes were...

The hotel by far the closest hotel to the ruins. The rooms are spacious and quite. You of course are paying extra to be close and have an amazing view. I would high recommend staying here. The restaurant is good but a bit over priced but of course you are paying for the amazing view.
