The Athena Hotel is a 19th century villa which has been completely refurbished , it is the only one of the valley. We were given a clean and medium sized room with a beautiful view of the temples ,that are at a very close distance from the hotel; the room was satisfactory considering it is a five star hotel, but it could have been better. However we were were not at all satisfied with the restaurant, we found the service to be very poor , and the food badly cooked (I had to send my meal back to the cook because the pasta was glued together into one big ball !) with an extreemly slow service, one of the reasons being that there was a wedding going on in the garden,so there was unnecessary noise and confusion. This was topped off by a very high bill and no apologies. Overall I do not recommend a stay at the hotel and certainly not a meal at the restaurant, but I do recommend a drink there at around seven-thirty to see the temples at dusk and the lights go on under them...
