This is the only hotel within the park. The temples are seen at night lit up from many areas in the hotel. The rooms and bathrooms are beautiful and the people are helpful. Schedule a private tour of the ruins with an archaeologist to understand the history of Sicily. The restaurant is excellent. it is not far from the dramatic...

After a long drive from Catania we were glad to find welcoming waiter with interesting menu. We had bavette pasta with pistachio sauce and Norma pasta. Also had the eggplant Parmesan roll which was absolutely delicious. Tasty and savoure food and very well presented. Efficient service but more expensive than other restaurants around - even so, pasta at 14 euros...

Only downside of our stay was that it was too short!!! This is a beautiful hotel in a truly amazing setting right in the middle of the Valley of the Temples (with its own private entrance). The staff couldn't have been more helpful from the front desk to the restaurant ... where we came across someone who had worked in...

This is a genuinely classy hotel but it is not pretentious. Beautifully appointed interior and excellent rooms. Staff were friendly, helpful and professional. The real highlight of the hotel is its location, just a few hundred metres from the Valle dei Templi. Better than that, the hotel has its own private entrance to the site. We really enjoyed our stay...

Beautiful hotel, lovely staff, excellent restaurant. The private entranice to the valley of the temples was a pleasant convenience and no doubt a huge time saver in the summer. I will definitely be returning!

This was our second time at this hotel and it was better then ever. We were upgraded to a room that overlooked the temple Concordia which was a magical sight, especially at night when the lights were directed at it. We explored these temples and those in Selinunte. The room was perfection and spotless with a great shower and turndown...

My husband and I spent one night at Villa Athena in January and could not have been more pleased with our stay. The hotel was easy to find. Service was impeccable at the front desk, in the restaurant and spa. They were very prompt and accommodating to my multiple emails requesting spa and restaurant reservations and inquiring about them holding...

Villa Athena is a marvelous jewel in the Valle dei Templi. Room was extremely clean, comfortable and elegant. All the staff very kind and friendly. It is the perfect location to accomplish an holiday in the fantastic Agrigento.

Staying on the grounds of the Greek ruins was phenomenal. The views at night are spectacular. The receptionists were so warm and friendly. The room was spacious, clean, and, again, the views were amazing. We purchased tickets to the Valley of the Temples from the front desk and it was an easy walk down the path to the ruins. Thank...
