    Superb

    This hotel is in the pefect setting, and only a ten minute walk to the entrance to the Temples. We had a room overlooking the Temples (stunning especially at night) and even the bathroom had a superb view. The room was spacious and comfotable. The staff were excellent, we arrived erly but we were able to check in and leave our bags in reception, then we returned later, having visited the museum, and our room was ready and our luggage in situ. Breakfast was excellent.

    It's a shame the restaurant in separate from the hotel, as a view over the temples whilst dining would be wonderful (tho' we did not have an evening meal there)

    Superb

    Our room was really wonderful.Very luxurious and comforting.Great view of the temples and countryside off of our private balcony.The lounge chairs on the balcony were very comfortable and inviting to relax in and enjoy the view.The staff at the front desk were very helpful.The service was very good when we needed anything as far as room service or an extra pillow.A basket of fruit was left in our room after we returned from dinner.The bathroom also had a charming small picture window with a view as well.These details stood out as well as the overall exceptional quality of fixtures ,design and attention to detail in the room.

    I felt the location of the restaurant to be odd as it did not take advantage of the views of the property.The restaurant felt cold and not so welcoming in it's decor.Not very intimate.Possibly too much glass and not enough upholstery or plants to add an organic touch.Service was good,the food was fine,overall a pleasant dining experience.I felt the bar,etc was also a bit cold and oddly positioned.Service at breakfast was not the best I experienced in Italy and the selection could have been possibly more impressive given the category of the hotel.

    Beautifully situated, with the best possible view of the Valley of the Temples. The hotel grounds are lovely, with delightful citrus trees and an inviting pool. The rooms were stylish and luxurious. We came mainly for visiting the ancient temples, but we wish we could have stayed longer just to relax at the hotel.

    The location is fabulous (once you have braved the Sicilian driving to get there). The Valley of the Temples and Archaeological Museum are walkable, as in fact is Agrigento itself (we walked back, not there which would be uphill all the way). The rooms are extremely comfortable and access to the pool, restaurant etc is all simple. Lots of parking and efficient and really friendly, excellent staff. It is an exceptionally relaxing and elegant place to stay.

    Piped music on a loop was driving me crazy- especially as it was on a loop of less than around an hour which played all day long. It was all background music of no musical worth and the sound of silence would have been nicer- at least in the morning and in the period immediately after lunch. It really was an issue, especially when we had a swing band practising as well and one night during dinner I had to ask the Maitre d to turn the piped music down as it was competing with the (very good) live music from the wedding the hotel was catering. The restaurant was not top notch- trying too hard. Impossible to have really classic, simple sea food for example. But good wine list. The hotel is on a bend in a busy road and in August it can take ages to get out and walking can be genuinely treacherous.

    Extraordinary location - right beside the ruins. All facilities were of the finest quality. Elegantly appointed and spacious.

    Expensive restaurant and a little annoying that it appears they say the room is not ready to make sure you have lunch first. Maybe my imagination!

    Beautiful hotel with wonderful views over the Greek temples. The rooms are spacious and luxurious.

    Evening dinner in the restaurant was average for the price paid.

    Superb

    It was adjacent to the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, Sicily, a short walk to the entrance. It was old world elegance with very model amenities and style. And some of the rooms had views of the most impressive temple ruins.

    A bit noisy in the morning: delivery trucks.

    Everything was especially nice. Beautiful room with view. Huge shower head with great water supply. If you have traveled to Italy you would know showers have slow flow and most are hand held. Wonderful resturant great service.

    Everything was fantastic

    LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! We have stayed at the Villa Athena two times before and and always go back to that hotel purely because of the location directly in front of the ruins. The ruins are illuminated at night and the view is spectacular! This time we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the hotel and found that they had done a major renovation a few years ago. The hotel is Beautiful! This is definitely the hotel to stay in if you are visiting Agrigento.

    The position is great. The hotel was good, rooms good and breakfast excellent. The reception staff were very good.

    Not too impressed with dinner. Setting is marvellous overlooking the Temples and the food quite good but the service not so good! Coffee ordered that did not arrive etc.
