Just had a very short break and stayed at the Hotel Villa Athena for 3 nights. The view was stunning (facing the Temple of Concord). The room was clean and well equipped with a very good shower. The restaurant was first class; try the Spaghetti alla Norma. And best of all the staff were very helpful and friendly. The archeological... More

Villa Athena has an amazing location, the view of the temples is an incredible experience, the garden with the pool is such as to make words unfit to describe it. The villa hosting the hotel is beautiful but the deluxe room we had was tiny, in dire need of a facelift. The bathroom had see through glass sliding doors which... More

We stayed in a junior suite which was large and spacious, but realised on arrival that the best rooms that have the view of the temples are the superior rooms which are cheaper than junior suites. The view however was visible from the outdoor seating area. The bathroom was nice with bidet and bath/shower which was large enough. However, I... More

Well, it was just great. The staff were just lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. We stayed only one night but we got exactly what we asked for (two rooms, adjacent, one with three beds for the kids) and something we didn't which was a fine view from both rooms of the temple site. The restaurant was brilliant -... More

If you are in Agrigento and if it even vaguely fits into your budget, try to spend a night or two at the fabulous Villa Athena. A small hotel, you can't beat its service, restaurant, or the views from the rooms facing the Valley of the Temples. We had the wonderful pleasure of spending hours on our balcony watching the...

This is a fancy, elegant hotel where, if you pay the extra for a "temple view", you will have the view of a lifetime. We traveled in January, the off-season, and paid slightly more than $200 for one night here, which is about double what we budgeted for our hotel rooms elsewhere in Sicily on our vacation. But it was... More

We have been privileged to stay in many great hotels, but the Hotel Villa Athena in Agrigento, Sicily is, quite possibly, the best ever. Terrific staff in the hotel and in the excellent restaurant next door (ask for the inimitable Salvatore). But the view out of the window of your room is difficult to match since, looking as if it...

They know what they are, namely the only five-star, luxury hotel in the Valley of the Temples, and it shows. Our room was very smart, the service was impeccable and the location is perfect for visiting the temples. The only downside is that such unchallenged exclusivity comes at a price. Otherwise, from our experience, the hotel can hardly be faulted.

The Hotel Athena is just about the best place to stay if you want a good view of the well preserved Temple of Concordia. It is in a pretty valley staring right at the temples and must have made a magnificent house in its day. There is not much to see in Agrigento town but making the effort to see... More
