The hotel is delightful and the views are spectacular. It is only a few minutes walk from the Agrigento archaeological site so perfect to enjoy a day out at the ruins - don't forget sunscreen and a hat! It is not in the city but easy enough to get there by taxi for more restaurants (the hotel is small so... More

Villa Athena is nothing but first class luxury. Located amid the ancient Greek ruins of Agrigento Sicily, the view from our room was simply amazing, day and night. From the comfort of our balcony, in the coziest of robes (and after a deligtful trip to the pool), we sipped Proseco accompanied by regional treats (olives, pistacios, almonds). A superb dinner...

What a wonderful experience. The property is spectacular, the service was stellar and we were upgraded to a suite that was easily the most beautiful room we've ever stayed in. The view of the temple is breathtaking, especially at night. Dinner was excellent. We are still raving about it months later.

This is an outstanding hotel in every way. The location is perfect, as it is the only hotel on the grounds of the archeological park. The views of the Greek temples from our room were incredible. The room was very comfortable and the hotel restaurant was excellent.

Just book and stay at least 3 nights. you can read the reviews but your room may have gone by the time you have read this.... make sure you have 'A room with a view!' It's just nice from looking at the Temples whilst lying in bed, to looking at them floodlit at night whilst eating your sumptuous dinner. I... More

From the moment we arrived, our stay at Villa Athena was nothing short of wonderful. Service was gracious, our room far exceeded expectations, and the dining was among the best in Sicily. Can't praise the whole experience enough!

perfectly located for the temples we were upgraded to the presidential suite with a terrace facing the Temple of Concordia and a similar view through the porthole window in the bathroom;so that could not be bettered (as others have remarked not all rooms have temple views and i would stay in town if a temple view room is not available)...

Beautiful hotel, wonderful setting. Breakfast was full of surprises e.g almond milk. Dinner on the terrace with the view of the temples was memorable. Extras included a garden tour, an evening visit to view the temples with ice cream sadly we had to leave and missed the cookery demonstration.

This is a great small hotel. It would be worth every (quite a few) dollar even without the awesome views of the nearby Temple of Concord, one of the great Greek temples, and the beautiful Temple of Hera further away. Ask for a room with a balcony. The service is great, the room luxurious and beautifully appointed and the dinner... More

We wanted to go to see the Valley of the Temples but ended up realizing this hotel is a destination in and of itself. The website doesn't do the hotel justice; to sit by the beautiful, sleek Poland look onto Greek ruins is...unbelievable. Practicalities: the breakfast buffet is excellent with a good range; lunch and dinner solid and well executed... More
