This hotel is so incredible. We stayed for 3 nights in the suite with the very large deck that looks over the pool and out to Temples. At night the Temples are lit and the views are jaw dropping. We enjoyed one lunch and two dinners. The accommodation, bed linens, service, quality of the food...all fantastic. We thank Laura Castellana... More

Was so looking forward to staying here! First impressions were bad as receptionist was more involved with a colleague than offering a welcome! Wanted a refreshment at the pool and it took 30 minutes for service and then only on account of my return visit to reception. A basket of fruit was given along with a complementary drink but first...

We did not spend the night here - went for lunch, which was so wonderful, the food, the view, the service - all impeccable. We decided we better go back for dinner. We were not disappointed. Event though a wedding was going on, we were treated as if we were the most important guests there. Can't say enough good things.... More

This a splendid small hotel. My daughter and I took a suite and found ourselves in the lap of luxury. The accommodation could not have been better. The staff were extremely helpful. The hotel has a wonderful view, morning and night, of theTemple of Concord. It boasts a swimming pool. Meals were excellent, served on a lovely terrace with a... More

What an oasis. After a long drive from Siracusa, we were so happy to arrive at this hotel. The rooms are beautiful with a gorgeous view of the Temple Concordia. You're on the front steps of the park to visit the Valley of the Temples, but you almost don't need to if you stay here!

If you travel to Agrigento, staying here is a dream. Beautiful rooms, property and pool with views to the Valley of Temples. Our room had a lovely patio the over looked the pool and gardens with the best view of Temple Concordia. If you don't stay here, come for dinner. The Concordia Restaurant is alfresco dining at its best. We... More

Everything was fabulous: the food, the staff, the room and the location. The stunning view from this hotel is of the Temple of Concord and the Temple of June. Both of which are around 2,400 years old. We will remember our three night stay for ever.

We stayed at the Vila Athena Hotel for 2 nights in 3 and 4 January 2016 and got very competitive rates, booking 2 rooms when we were already in town, for 2 upgraded rooms facing the ruins. At night, from the distance (not far), it is a very interesting vision and feeling. The restaurant is a bit snobbish and not... More

Staff wasn't too friendly, a bit snobby, especially when asked to call a taxi to go into the towns city center and to go to see the temples. Carpet was dirty on multiple floors. We actually chose this hotel because of the evening views of the temples when sitting having a cocktail and we were not able to do this... More

We stayed at Villa Athena for one night while visiting the Valley of the Temples. Rooms were quite nice -- well appointed, clean, and modern. Bathroom was a bit more dated, but not terribly. Hotel staff were warm and helpful Hotel had a lot of amenities, but given our short stay we didn't really partake in the pool, gym or... More
