Athena Resort is one of those enormous resort villages. I like the concept of developing such a place, but at its most busy season, I saw it suffering some organization problems. Athena gives a lot of entertainment to its visitors, there's a beautiful botany garden, an old villa of a famous archeaologist at the very center of the village, also... More

First thing that I would like to inform other travellers is that this is not a hotel. It is some kind of village resort with Villas. They give a room from the villa, which sounds okey at first. When you enter the room is dirty, noisy and if you booked mansard room for the view and you are above 1.70m... More

The nice private beach is 5-6 km away and is well served with shuttle buses in every 8-20 minites. The drive takes 10 min. The Athena resort complex is also a good base for exploring Sicily. There are numerous organized excursions to many points of interest, and in summer months (twice a week) a day-trip excursion to Malta for 150... More

We stayed 7 nights at this beautiful resort! Everything was great - the rooms are clean, the food in the 3 restaurants was various, animation team did a great job and the beach is superb with enough sun beds!The pools were clean. We definitely will return again! My kids asked me if we can live there! 😄

We spent 10 days in September 2015 in the resort. I had my reservations but it actually it was much more that I expected. A lot of green, very well maintained garden, and the food at the restaurant is delicious - I think one of the best we had in a hotel. The beach is 5 min, away with a... More

For the record, this is not a hotel I picked. It was a 3 day event with hundreds of people coming in from around Europe and this was where the organizers decided to book.
