We only stayed for one night and we regreted it ! I wished we had stayed 2 or 3 ! The staff is very nice and always ready to help. The view on the temples is incredible despite the small size of the room compare to American Standard. The breakfast and the diner was also very nice.

Certainly one of the most luxurious experiences in Italy. Rooms are superbly comfortable, great showers, ultra clean, views to the Temples of extraordinary, service terrific and the best breakfast ever!! Yes you walk through their gardens of olive trees up to the Temple. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Ample parking. Wifi great.

The view of the temple is just to die for. Our suite had a spectacular terrace. Service was cordial and attentive and rooms were clean and new. Food was also very good (a bit slow). Good breakfast. If I went again to Agrigento I would stat there again.

We stayed here for two nights over Christmas. The hotel is located close to the temples with its own entrance gate - you buy your tickets at reception for 10 euro each. Parking is easy within the hotel grounds. Very nice restaurant with pianist - no other restaurants in walking distance.

This hotel has " the view" ...the room was clean, the grounds well cared for, the walk to the temples easy...the dining room expensive, but worth a good meal with that view. I liked it so well ( best breakfast you will have anywhere ) I stayed 3 nights instead of two. I got a good deal on the room...

It's a beautiful hotel with beautiful spacious rooms. Lots of staff available to respond to your needs. One can spend hours gazing at the temples and enjoying the beautiful grounds and features of the hotel. But there are issues. The A/C system had been shut off for the winter and our room was hot, so the only way to cool...

By far, Villa Athena was the highlight of our 3 week Sicily vacation. Accommodations were most perfect and staff above perfection! Most special was spending our evening dinners outside on veranda, fantastic food and service, grand piano music, and best of all, the view of Concordia Greek Temple, lit up in the most beautiful warm golden color, standing right in...

One of the most amazing views from a hotel property you will ever find. I am sure this property and the view has been featured many times in travel magazines.

We stayed at the Villa Athena many years ago. the view was spectacular. My husband had a tummy bug and missed the dinner on the terrace. We had to return! This time, the Hotel surpassed expectations!
