This was our second time at this hotel and it was better then ever. We were upgraded to a room that overlooked the temple Concordia which was a magical sight, especially at night when the lights were directed at it. We explored these temples and those in Selinunte. The room was perfection and spotless with a great shower and turndown...

My husband and I spent one night at Villa Athena in January and could not have been more pleased with our stay. The hotel was easy to find. Service was impeccable at the front desk, in the restaurant and spa. They were very prompt and accommodating to my multiple emails requesting spa and restaurant reservations and inquiring about them holding...

Staying on the grounds of the Greek ruins was phenomenal. The views at night are spectacular. The receptionists were so warm and friendly. The room was spacious, clean, and, again, the views were amazing. We purchased tickets to the Valley of the Temples from the front desk and it was an easy walk down the path to the ruins. Thank...

We only stayed for one night and we regreted it ! I wished we had stayed 2 or 3 ! The staff is very nice and always ready to help. The view on the temples is incredible despite the small size of the room compare to American Standard. The breakfast and the diner was also very nice.

The view of the temple is just to die for. Our suite had a spectacular terrace. Service was cordial and attentive and rooms were clean and new. Food was also very good (a bit slow). Good breakfast. If I went again to Agrigento I would stat there again.

We stayed here for two nights over Christmas. The hotel is located close to the temples with its own entrance gate - you buy your tickets at reception for 10 euro each. Parking is easy within the hotel grounds. Very nice restaurant with pianist - no other restaurants in walking distance.

This hotel has " the view" ...the room was clean, the grounds well cared for, the walk to the temples easy...the dining room expensive, but worth a good meal with that view. I liked it so well ( best breakfast you will have anywhere ) I stayed 3 nights instead of two. I got a good deal on the room...
