I wish I had another couple of days here. It is such a beautiful place. I was on the way from Palermo to malta after a long pan European drive. The hotel is charming and the grounds are amazing and mature gardens. The hotel sits in a beautiful valley and has its own entrance to the temple sites. We only...

One of the finest hotels we have ever used! Our room, the Villa Suite, was remarkable.The patio that looked out toward the Greek temple was enormous.The staff was extraordinarily helpful, the hotel restaurants were outstanding, and the location in relation to the Greek ruins was incredible!

The rooms are great and views wonderful. Great location for getting right into to Valley of the Temples. If they just had good service to go with the rest, I could give them a 5. But this was the worst, least attentive service of all the hotels we have stayed in here in Sicily. Fix this one thing and you...

Booked a room with dinner; room was really lovely. Dinner very nice. Restaurant staff are great (thanks). Note that the spa has to be booked before you visit - I had planned to go to the spa but this wasn't possible, to my disappointment as it's not clear when you book that it's 'subject to availability'

We stayed here for three nights and it was bliss. We had booked a room, which was lovely, but my husband upgraded us to a room with a terrace that had a view of the temple. It was just lovely and so romantic. The staff were great and the food and wine interesting and complex. I would recommend it for...

One of my friends stayed here a few years ago and I saw his pictures online and knew I had to come here. It lived up to every expectation. We stayed in a deluxe room with temple view. Our room had a nice patio you could sit out on, but we were here in the summer so it was super...

We did have a unique experience here. We booked a last minute regular room while walking around the Valley of the Temples. When we arrived at the hotel, there were no rooms left, so they gave us the Villa!!!!!! The wonderful front desk staff made us feel so welcome and happy! They offered suggestions of places to go as we...

We spent two wonderful days at Villa Athena. Our "superior" room looked out at a close up view of one of the world's best preserved (2500 year old) Greek temples. Hotel guests are afforded a special entrance to the Valley of the Temples site...a spectacular series of ancient artifacts. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The room was impeccable....

Excellent small luxury hotel located within the archaeological park. It is well worth the added cost to select one of the few temple view rooms. Only, the Oberoi in Agra, overlooking the Taj Mahal offers an equivalent experience. The rooms and grounds are lovely. The restaurant is first class. The hotel has its own private entrance into the park. If...

The hotel is very well located, big rooms, very clean. Good Italian breakfast. We booked a Relaxing Journey package directly on their website which included a stay in a superior room. According to booking.com and their own website some have a terrace, or a walk in closet or a shower or a tub. We got a room with only a...
