If you plan to visit Agrigento we'd highly recommend you consider a room at this hotel with a view of the temples. While we did see the temples during the day (just a very short walk from the hotel), seeing them lit up at night was even more beautiful. Anyone that just passes through Agrigento during the day is missing out on how beautiful they look at night. This hotel has a lovely restaurant which also overlooks the temples and the food was very good. Our room as well, was lovely and sizeable. The staff was very pleasant. Our only complaint was that they seemed to be short on staff in the bar/restaurant area. Prior to dinner, we went down to the bar area which also has beautiful views of the temples. We thought we'd have a pre-dinner cocktail and take some photos of the temples around sunset. We had plenty of time to look at the temples and take photos but, the entire time we sat there, we didn't get served. There was just one waiter and he seemed overwhelmed having to handle too many patrons. So, after admiring the temples for a while and taking photos we went to dinner. While the food was very good, service was very, very slow. Again, there seemed like there weren't enough waiters to handle the very packed dining area. Other than that one issue, we thoroughly enjoyed our stayed and would still highly recommend it.
