Get a room with a balcony, light up a Cuban, sip your cocktail and ''take it in''!! If walking is a problem you won't miss much if you just take it in from your room......a great vista of a well kept Concord temple and good view of temple Hera. Large bathrooms with walk-in showers and a view of the temple.... More

This is the only hotel which is right next to the Valley of the Temples, and from which the site and museum can be easily reached on foot. That being so, it commands premium prices and must be booked several months in advance. But it is certainly worth it. The decor is bright, clean and stylish. A wonderful dinner on... More

Our family stayed in 3 rooms at this gorgeous hotel during a trip around the entire island of Sicily, and we LOVED the property. As reviewers have said, there is no better located hotel in Agrigento. At night and during the day you have a perfect unobstructed view of the Temple. The hotel is pricey, but as others have also... More

I booked a room at this Hotel Villa Athena in July 2014 for my upcoming trip this September/October. I booked through hotels.com, with a credit card, and received a "guaranteed reservation" from Hotels.com. Now I am leaving for Sicily this Friday, 26 September. My room reservation for Wednesday, October 1 was declined yesterday by the Hotel Villa Athena! Hotels.com has... More

Stayed there during the first day of our honeymoon, with a booking made 3 months in advance (we have highest status with SLH loyalty program so should have been entitled to some benefits). Ended up with the worst possible room, with view on parking lot, extremely poorly maintained shower room (no bath, damaged furniture, rotten shower head, dirty tiles, etc.).... More

Dear Guests, Unfortunately we are not very surprised to read these so negative comments about the quality of our hotel, the rooms and the staff, considering the fact that your stay at Villa Athena started to not be up to the standards SLH from the moment the receptionists explained with absolute kindness that an upgrade to a room with a...

As many have said before, this is a perfectly located hotel. A 5 minute walk to the Valley of The Temples. You pay for the privilege of staying but waking up to a full-view of the Temple of Concordia was worth every Euro. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food at both breakfast and the on-site restaurant were... More

We stayed in the room with direct views of the temples and swimming pool. Extraordinary, having the dinner and viewing the Temple all the time. Greek were aware what is the perfect location. HavingTurkish stairs and magnificent beaches around we spent great days finishing with great dinner in the hotel viewing temples. Magnificent!!

If you’re planning to visit Agrigento, you probably have the Valley of the Temples at the top of your list. The Villa Athena is perfectly located with direct views of the temples, especially the Temple of Concord, from almost everywhere. It is a short walk of about 200-300m to the entrance. While all rooms may not have a direct view... More

The location overlooking the Valley of the Temples could not have been better. We never needed our car, and could use the hotel as an oasis for lunch and a swim before going out again to see the sights. Food, service, and room were all exceptional.

The hotel and accommodation were wonderful, the location makes if really special but it was a little let down by the restaurant which flattered to deceive . The views were amazing from the terrace and the menu looks wonderful, but the food is little more than ordinary and we were slightly disappointed. However, overall if you are staying in agrigento...
