We chose to stay here because we couldn't find a hotel in Agrigento with any good reviews and we are very pleased we did. Favara itself is not a great place (but as we found out Agrigento isn't exactly lovely either) and there's very little to recommend it apart from this hotel but it is well worth staying here for a couple of days if you wish to visit the Valley of the Temples.
It was failrly easy to find because it was signposted from the main road but reaching it involved working our way through a maze of small streets which can be confusing. On the first night we found it difficult to park but on the next 2 nights there were no problems and, if you can't find anywhere, the hotel will park your car for you.
From the outside it's difficult to believe that the exterior hides rooms which are modern with great bathrooms. We found that the minimistic style coupled with light wooden flooring made the rooms feel airy and light.
Everyone at the hotel was incredibly friendly and helpful, they genuinely made you feel as though you were welcome. Throughout our stay the quality of service was excellent.
Favara is probably not the sort of place you would like to eat out in so it's fortunate that the hotel has an excellent restaurant, Le Traveggole, which serves amazing steaks and fish which are cooked to perfection. There were some very nice touches like the complimentary glass of fizz and toasted almonds when you sit down plus the option to sit indoors or outside. It also offers an extensive wine list in all price ranges including a good house wine.
We considered ourselves very fortunate to come across this small hotel and highly recommend it - just don't let Favara put you off !
