It's a very nice place to stay. The garden is really beautiful and you can see the illuminated temple in the evening while dining or having a walk. The room is very clean, with a lot of space, the windows have wooden shades and the aircondition is working very good. What we didn't like, was the place where the breakfast... More

We select hotels using TripAdvisor, Fodors and other travel guides and Villa Athena definitely deserves it's #1 rating in Agrigento by TripAdvisor. We found the accomodations to be lovely and comfortable. Also with modern technology (AC and WiFi that both actually work, a rarity in Sicily!). The setting with the view of the famous temple and ruins is impressive and... More

Absolutely beautiful. Arrived here after a long drive from Siracusa and it simply took our breath away. Our room had a huge terrace overlooking the Valley of The Temples. The suite itself was fantastic as was the hotel. We had our evening meal in the restaurant which was great, alfresco dining with a view of the temples lit up. Great... More

Villa Athena is referred to as a 5 star hotel and it is, even by USA standards. It is the only hotel located within the Valley of the Temples "park". Our room had an unbelievably beautiful view of the Concordia ruin from the window of the bedroom as well as an artfully constructed port hole in the wall of the... More

We had a fabulous stay at Hotel Villa Athena, from check-in to check-out it was a truly 5 star experience. The setting with view on temple Concordia is breath-taking and the service top-notch. We had one of our best meals in Sicily at the hotel restaurant, with definitely the best view of our entire trip. We booked a family suite,... More

This 5 star hotel is the absolute must for visiting the Valley of the temples in Agrgento, Sicily. It sits right across from the valley and has rooms that look over the temples. It is a short walk or drive to the temples themselves and to the museum, the location is unbeatable. The hotel staff is very helpful, the rooms... More

This property seems to be living on the reputation it had way in the past. Is way overrated and way over priced. Apart from the view of the Temple from a private terrace it you can pay what they are asking for these rooms it is just a little above average property good for no more than a 2 night... More

I have to say that I've been really disappointed with this Hotel. On the website, everything seemed nice: a great view, beautiful rooms, nice location... In reality... It was different... First of all, when you enter a 5 stars Hotel, you don't expect to see unfinished construction details. Plus, the decoration in the rooms is okay in appearance but kind... More

Agrigento and Villa Athena was our favorite stop in the whole of Sicily. To have dinner within view of 3000 year old ruins was amazing. The spa is a nice addition and the facility was top shelf. Service throughout our stay was superior. My only complaint was that the menu was a little too creative. I prefer superior ingredients prepared... More
