The place to stay in Agrigento...

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 19, 2016

We searched hard for hotels in Agrigento and came to the conclusion that Villa Athena is *the* place to stay. We had been looking for a proper hotel, but could only find less appealing B&B-type accommodation in the historic centre of Agrigento. Hotel Villa Athena seemed many notches higher both in terms of price as well as amenities, and it is also a member of www.slh.com, so it was a safe bet. In fact, it was the most expensive hotel we stayed at in the whole of Sicily. After staying here and visiting the town of Agrigento, I could confidently recommend Villa Athena over anything else in town, assuming the price is not prohibitive, and would definitely stay here again. The hotel's most important feature is that it is located within the archaeological site with the best views over the Valley of the Temples, and until recently, one could walk directly into the site from the hotel. The grounds are beautiful and the hotel is very well kept after a recent renovation. It has a large outdoor pool and a spa. The décor is simple and not extraordinary, but the rooms are very comfortable. So, is the price justified? I would say no relative to the other hotels we stayed at all over the island, but perhaps yes given that it is the only quality hotel in Agrigento. All in all, I would say that it suffers a bit from being the only luxury hotel in town. Some competition would be good for everyone...

This is a 5 star hotel, which has been recently completely rennovated. It is the only hotel situated walking distance to the Valley of the Temples. The rooms are incredibly beautiful, decorated with exquisite taste and warm colors. But the highlight of this hotel are the breath-taking views to the Valley of the Temples, especially in the night when the Valley is illuminated and it looks like it's floating in the air. Almost all the rooms have views to the Valley, some have shower rooms with a porthole which overlook the Valley...magnificent!

Unique Quality: The restaurant: here I had the best meal of my life!!!
