“Nice spot, great value, a bit far from anything else”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

We booked this hotel for closeness to the sea and a pool on site, and it's value. We were concerned about the distance to Agrigento, but having driven around Agrigento - we now realise this wasn't a problem, as the city wasn't so special. It was close to the temples, however having a car is a must as it is still 8km away. The receptionist was friendly and spoke good English. 

We had asked for a room with a nice view and had got a great sized room with view over the pool looking out to the beach and sea. The room had the basics, fridge, TV, Ensuite, and a balcony with drying rack. 

Reception recommended some good local restaurants, which were a 6km drive along the coast. Breakfast was good, but as expected - a full continental buffet option. There is a bar and seating area in the hotel downstairs should you wish to use or have a drink by the poolside. 

At €60 for a double ensuite with breakfast we felt this was great value and would recommend the hotel. Whilst 4 stars seems generous for the hotel rating, I wouldn't have a problem staying here again.

Awesome! Going back next year and definitely staying here again.
Rooms were clean, spacious, well equipped; fantastic bed and mini kitchenette/table. Not to mention view, pool, breakfast.

Best of all though-- The Staff!
Thank you to everyone at Antica Perla, it was a pleasure to stay with you. See you in 2012.

We stayed in the Hotel for nearly a week. The rooms were great. Lots of space. It had a kitchen so could do some cooking, though not alot of cooking utensils etc. Breakfast was great, coffee good too. The kids loved the pool, nice when you returned from a day out. The only thing is you would need your own car as it is quite a way from Agrigento prpoer & lots of the sights. We really enjoyed our stay here.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

We booked this hotel for 3 nights on the basis of the good reviews on here. We had spent most of our holiday on a different part of the island in a remote but beautiful hotel (at the same price level) and so that probably affected our views of Antica Perla, Agrigento is very touristy and so comparatively more expensive. First impressions were OK, on the road approaching the hotel there were rubbish bins literally overflowing into the road, but this is obviously not the hotel's fault. On arrival we were upgraded to a bigger room which was great, and the kitchen facilities were really helpful, particularly the fridge. The room was clean, spacious etc with two balconies. The nearby beach is large but has quite a lot of litter, and the hotel is not really within walking distance of any restaurants, so be prepared to drive. All this was fine until it came to trying to sleep at night - unfortunately there is a bar directly across the road which played very loud music with karaoke until 3am in the morning. After two nights of very little sleep we ended up buying ear plugs and turning the air con up to try and drown out the noise. It's a real shame for this hotel, I mentioned it to one of the staff and he was very apologetic and explained it only happens in the summer months, and he clearly appreciates it is a problem but he cannot do anything about it. For us it was not the end of the world, but I imagine it could be a bit of a nightmare if you have small children.
Other than that, breakfast and all the other facilities were good.

I feel badly that it has taken me this long to write about such a gem of a hotel. I visited Antica Perla as part of a family reunion in October 2011. I was traveling with a total of 4 women, all English speaking. The staff could not have been more accommodating to ensure our comfort and safety. One our first night, we did not have a car, which is essential in this area. They called drivers and really grilled into them the importance of watching over us. They negotiated the fees and upon our return, met us at the locked gate.
Because of family obligations, we did not spend much time in the hotel itself. I look forward to returning and patronizing them. They were honest, lovely and reliable. Least to mention, the lovely area of Agrigento that is within their proximity.

There are many positive aspect of this hotel: fantastic views; very clean modern rooms; friendly, helpful staff; quiet, resort atmosphere; excellent breakfast. When we arrived at Antica Perla, we were stunned at the magnificent location overlooking the Mediterranean. We were greeted by the owner, Antonio, who was so welcoming and gracious. In fact, he upgraded us to a spacious suite with full kitchen, master bedroom, and two balconies with views. We were so happy with his generosity and the beautiful accommodations! After a long drive from Syracusa, we were delighted to sit on our balcony sipping wine and watching the glorious sunset. We highly recommend this beautiful hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony and view.

We spent 3 days in this hotel in october and we really liked it. It was not so easy to find it, but our GPS directed us in a wrong way.
We got a very spacious room with a kitchenette and 2 balconies: one seaside, one hillside. The bathroom was small but O.K.
The staff of the hotel is very kind and helpful. There was a nice swimming pool with a lot of lounge-chairs. There was no restaurant in the hotel and neither in the neighbourhood. But as we had a car, it was no problem to find good restaurants within 4 or 5 km.
In the evening it was very quiet there, but we wonder if it was quiet in july/august too.
We visited the valley of the temples and the "Scala dei Turchi". This last is a must to see.
For us certainly a good place to be.
