We enjoyed three luxurious nights here, with really splendid views to the temples. Superb pool with same views and top class dining outside facing the illuminated temples. Ideally position in walking distance from the temples outside of Agrigento itself. Almost perfect service - they just needed to fix the Skybox connections which seemed unreliable! Obviously priced to match the quality... More

The Athena is by far the best hotel in Agrigento and is very good overlooking the Greek Temples a wonderful view ! The food is good the rooms all nice though some have poor views but the terraces and pool have the full view and are delightful . It is the best hotel in this town but honestly second best... More

We was not in the hotel. But we went there for having dinner. Is an amazing place in front of the temple. In the night is fantastic. The atmosphere with live playing piano and a good meal in front of the temple is like heaven. 100% recommended. Without wine aprox. 40e. Highly recommended.

Everything about the hotel was first class-- the staff, the accommodations, the food. We had a balcony with a view of the temples. Words are not adequate to describe the beauty. The archeological site was within walking distance of the hotel. It was hot for mid October and the pool was just what was needed after hours at the temples.... More

We stayed for two lovely nights in a view room with a terrace. The view of the Concordia Temple is every bit as lovely as the pictures from the terraces, the pool and the terrace rooms. It is a short walk from the Villa down to the entrance to the archeologic park and a short walk uphill to the entrance... More

There are limited options when it comes to first class hotel experiences in Sicily, but we definitely had one during our two night stay at the Villa Athena this October. Check in was a breeze, the newly renovated rooms and public spaces were spanking clean, the grounds are perfectly maintained, the pool is lovely, and the view is absolutely breathtaking.... More

We stayed here and had two junior suites. One had a view of a temple but mostly the view was of a roof. The other had a balcony that looked out on the side of the hotel which was undergoing some type of construction. The junior suites had a sitting area that proved to be of little value. So... don't...

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.
