We previously enjoyed staying at the Villa Athena in 2002. My, how things have changed. Then it was a bit dated, but also quite a bargain! We stayed in the hotel's best room (Room 205 in 2002) then for about $200. That room today is $950. But, of course, it has been updated and given a face lift. This year... More

Awesome hotel located in the middle of the famous Temples Valley in Agrigento. The Temple of "Concordia" ", the most preserved one, is directly in front of the hotel and you can have breakfast or swim in the pool looking to this masterpiece of the classic architecture! The structure is a restructured ancient Villa but the rooms are pretty modern.... More

We have been traveling around Sicily for a couple of weeks doing the usual touristy things. Southern Sicily had become a little disappointing due to the piles of garbage in the towns and the tourist attractions that were either closed or in disrepair. Staying at the Hotel Villa Athena has made all things well again. We had room 302 which... More

Reception is friendly and extememely helpful getting us started on our sightseeing. Parking is on the grounds and that is a plus; our room was large and comfortable with nice linens, towels etc. the grounds... More

High luxury interiors, excellent lunch and dinner as well as very nice breakfast (with canoli to stuff by yourself).

My wife and I spent two wonderful nights at the Hotel Villa Athena at the end of October. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by very professional and courteous people. They showed us around the gorgeous property and then to our absolutely perfect room overlook the breathtaking Greek Temples a couple of hundred meters away. The beds were... More

A magical setting overlooking the temples. Both the temples and the museum are within walking distance. The setting and the service are just perfect: you feel as if you are a guest at someone's very special home. Service is very friendly and helpful, but also unobtrusive, a perfect combination. The rooms are beautifully done and the beds super comfortable. We... More

An all round wonderful experience. We found the staff very helpful and our room was perfect; comfortable bed, good toiletries, good breakfast and lovey surrounds. The highlight was dinner on looking at the temples. It was a lovely night and the staff very knowledgeable assisting us in selecting a fantastic wine. I would go back in heartbeat.
