The main reason to stay at the Villa Athena is the magnificent unobstructed view of the Valley of the Temples archaeological park (unobstructed by the modern town of Agrigento, that is). And it is a definite splurge. But if you can afford it you do get what you pay for. The rooms are lovely, fresh from a recent redecoration, and... More

As you drive into the property this SLH 5 Star it looks underwhelming, but walk in the door and immediately this hotel impresses, the numerous staff are immaculate; the atmosphere is fantastic; a hostess escorts you to the room and fully explains everything; the room looks exquisite. But the beds are hard, the water pressure varies, the towels are paper... More

My two nights here left a mixed feeling. Sure, its location is fantastic. The rooms are small and expensive, with thin walls and hard beds. The staff is mostly very friendly, but one at the front desk treated me quite badly, and left me with the impression that the staff in their white jackets consider themselves far better than the...

Dear Guest, We are very sorry for the mixed impressions you have about our hotel. Please allow us to clarify a few points: our matrasses are Simons notoriously know as being the best in the world and our walls are sound proof and the doors ( for sure you remember how heavy they are ) do not let any sound...

Even in a rain storm, Villa Athena delivered. A beautiful view of the temple, good luxury hotel services, and delicious breakfast. Accommodating staff helped create one of our best experiences in Sicily.

I've spent two weeks driving around Sicily and this was by far the best place I stayed. Very well located, you could actually walk to the Valley of The Temples. The place is very well decorated, comfortable, silent and clean. The restaurant was good but the breakfast buffet was excellent. The staff was courteous and attentive and there was enough... More

We stayed two nights at the Villa Athena in a room with a large terrace overlooking the temples. What a view! Our room was comfortable, the wifi worked perfectly and the bathroom was very nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful especially when all the roads to the hotel were closed on our first evening for an almond festival... More

a very exclusive hotel with a breathtaking view over the fascinating temples. It is in a walking distance to the temple ruins and the museum. The restaurant is also excellent. The staff is very helpful and friendly. At the swimming pool you have a nice view of the temples.

This hotel is located inside a park of ancient ruins. Breathtaking views of greek temples. This is not a four star hotel by any means, but it's small suites are clean and comfortable. Service is pleasant but less than professional. The pool and outdoor dining areas are both very enjoyable. Two nights in Agrigento are more than enough and this... More

This hotel and its surroundings are stunning. Unfortuantely we only had a one night stay at the Villa Athena. The hotel was quiet so we were upgraded to a room with a private balcony - wow, what a view. It was almost as if time stood still as we sat on the balcony in the sun gazing over at the... More

I stayed only one night at the Villa Athena. The hotel's main claim to fame is definitely the view over the temples at Agrigento. It was such a pleasure to open the shutters and to look out over the "Temple of Concord", illuminated at night, as well as in the morning. The hotel is definitely upscale, but I don't know... More
