This hotel is situated very close to the valley of the temples with an amazing view of the temple Della Concordia - the hotel is rated 5 star and the facilities restaurant and pool are excellent - the complimentary breakfast is excellent and the light lunches by the pool the same. However we were rather disappointed that a light lunch... More

We stayed one night at Hotel Villa Athena but would recommend staying two nights. Our room and bathroom were very large and luxurious, on the bottom level with a terrace, near the pool and had an amazing view of the Temple of Concordia. Cocktails and fancy complimentary appetizers on the terrace was lovely with the Temple of Juno and Temple... More

I stayed for two nights at the Hotel Villa Athena. My room was spotless, the view of the temples from my room was amazing, the food and wine were wonderful. I was able to totally relax and explore the Temples, and some other nearby places that were well worth the trek in the heat and humidity. Returning to my room... More

Villa Athena is a luxury hotel right within to Valle dei Templi, with beautiful views of the Concordia Temple. As mentioned, this is a luxury hotel by any standard, we were surprised to find such a nice hotel in this part of Sicily. We got a suite for about 400 euros which was amazing, really large, recently renovated, it even... More

We stayed here only 1 night, and we regret that decision. We should have stayed much longer. Firstly, the view and the beauty of the villa is top notch. Easily one of the top 5 most beautiful things/sites I have ever seen in my life. The room was undoubtedly clean. We had a nice suite on the bottom level with... More

This SLH property enjoys a fantastic location and offers well sized, beautifully appointed and comfortable rooms together with stunning views. The restaurant also proposes a fine dining experience. A real little paradise until... Until the hotel management drops the concept of quiet retreat to cater for the lucrative business of mass tourism. A lot of reviews mention the high number... More

The highlight of our stay was dinner overlooking the temple. There was a full moon and we watched the moon rise with the temples lit in a soft light at night. Both dinner and breakfast the next morning were excellent. The hotel arranged our guide to take us through the temples the next morning. They also let us stay in... More

The Hotel Villa Athena is one of the most fantastic spots I have ever been. We made a mistake and only booked this hotel for two nights......I wish I had stayed three or four. This incredible property was once a home and now it is a luxurious classy little hotel. How lucky for us. My husband and I flew from... More

Villa Athena was an outstanding hotel. It is located in a unique venue, overlooking the valley of the temples. The hotel itself is small and newly renovated hotel with great service. It was the best hotel we had in our Sicily tour, which was composed of some of the best 5-star hotels on the island. The restaurant is surprisingly excellent... More

We were staying on the east coast of Sicily and wanted to visit the Valley of the Temples so we booked this hotel to enable us to break the drive across Sicily over two days. We arrived quite early so our room was not available but we were directed to the museum and the valley to enjoy the area. We... More
