We stayed here two nights. Very nice all around. Good pool and good restaurant. Nice breakfast which is included in room rate. The beach is steps away but we preferred the pool frankly. Ample free parking too Would recommend staying here.

Lovely place for family. Villa Romana is very close to the sea and has a good swimming pool. Great dinner at the hotel restaurant. The room was quite and very clean with working television. Great breakfast!

Warmly greeted at reception. People saying hard to find, I must have a good navigator in my Mrs then. Its on the coast road. The rear of the hotel is actually on the dual carriageway as you enter Porto Empedocle travelling east the next turning right pass the hotel will take you to the sea front, right again is the...

A good stop in the Agrigento area. If you are going to the Valley of the Temples, stay at one of the beach resorts rather than in Agrigento itself. It is more relaxing and a change of pace and good for the kids too. The rooms are quaint, but do not have traditional showers. The restaurant has a limited selection... More

TomTom in our rental could not find no.1 so we ended in a dead end beach path... As friendly as all people we met in the area, a police car escorted us to the entrance. The hotel itself has everything you expect from a 4* plus their own beach with chairs and umbrellas next to the swimming pool. Staff was... More

My friend and I stayed at Villa Romana in the hope of a peaceful and relaxing break. This hotel was perfect for just that! It's a very warm and friendly hotel and located right next to the beach, which is ideal. The hotel is rather secluded so you won't get very far without a car (bus services are not great... More

We stayed here 4 nights with the intention of relaxing and recharging our batteries. This was perfect. Scala del Turchi is a 15 min walk along the beach (Do not miss this if you come here) and Porto Empedocle is a €10 taxi ride away (Some very good restaurants on Via Roma). The immediate surrounding area is not great and... More

The plus of the place is definitely the location, only 10 minutes walking along the beach to reach the "Scala dei turchi" (quite a site), and the pool to freshen up when back. But that's it. The personnel is not really friendly, the air-con was out of order, so was the tv, so was the shower. This hotel has no... More

Nice hotel if you like walking on the beach and don't mind to drive in Sicily. Friendly staff and relaxing stay guaranteed. Be patient when try to find this hotel-look at signs carefully and do not turn on to one way road!

Although difficult to find, this hotel was very good. Our room was clean and comfortable. Parking was adequate and the area around the hotel was scenic with a beach about 20 or so yards from the hotel entrance. Our rate included dinner which was very good. The pool was in good shape with plenty of lounges. We were unable to... More
