We spent over three weeks in Italy and this was our absolutely favorite hotel and hotel experience. The staff is wonderful! We were treated like very special guests. They offered a free night tour of Agrigento which ended with them treating us to a gelato, The rooms are very modern and impeccable. The view is absolutely stunning and it is... More

What a fantastic hotel. We not only had a fantastic view of the temple, but we also had direct access to a path to the temple. The restaurant and service was wonderful, and the spa was a nice added touch.

We didn't know what to expect after a gruelling first day driving around Sicily, but our welcome could not have been warmer or the hotel more beautiful. This is a five star hotel, with fabulous service, every comfort you could desire in a stylish and atmospheric package. The breakfasts are amazing, and the more formal restaurant is wonderful with fabulous... More

Spent three nights here. Hotel definitely 5 star. Eating out on the terrace at night is a joy. Spectacular views of Concordia Temple and terrific food and wine (but not cheap). Agrigento is inland so one morning we visited San Leone (closest beach to Agrigento0. Very ordinary and dishevelled. So beware. Would go back.

The hotel was amazing. Top notch staff, clean, gorgeous rooms, great pool and restaurant. The breakfast, which was included, was fantastic. It had something for everyone on the buffet. Front desk was very helpful as well.

Stayed at Hotel Vila Athena during July 2015 with our 9-year old son. stunning view over the valley of temples, nice sizes of room and friendly, service minded staff. Restaurant is good but a bit lower level compared to our last stay.

Fabulous hotel which is build within the temples site. You have excellent uninterrupted views onto the main temple. While we were there a wedding was taking place. The hotel generously arranged for an evening escorted bus tour of the temples and city free of charge. Some guests were moaning about this being bribery to get us guests out of the... More

We visited the Hotel Villa Athena in July but had a mixed experience. Pro: - Great location in the Valley of the Temples with a private entrance to the temples (however you still need to purchase tickets at the front desk). Note that the restaurants and the pool all have the view of the Concordia Temple, not entirely necessary to... More
