If you've come to Agrigento to see the Valley of the Temples, then this is the hotel where you should stay. The view from our bedroom window after sunset, overlooking the Temple of Concordia warmly floodlit under a starry sky, must be amongst the most romantic we've seen.
Service at the hotel was professional and courteous, even if a little impersonal. Our room was clean and well appointed, with a big bathroom and three windows overlooking the archaeological site.
The biggest drawback? There's a restaurant on site, the Granaio di Ibla, but we wouldn't recommend eating there, and you have to drive into town to eat somewhere else.
The bottom line? This was one of the very finest hotels we stayed at in Sicily. We'll be going back.
