9.0.Superb.
  • 8.0.Very Good

    So let's start off with a simple statement, if you are coming to Agrigento to see the Temples, this is the hotel to stay in. Private access, beautiful views and excellent food. However, I advise caution on room selection. I deliberately booked a suite as the photos clearly showed this was the first room type with a private terrace. That was not the case, and from outside it looks like only a single room has a terrace so that must be reserved for the presidential suite or whatever the top price one is. Still great hotel and excellent staff but be aware of that nugget, and come feeling flush as nothing is cheap here

    Fantastic location, worth a splurge.

    Lovely stay, great view of the Temple of Concordia from our room. We also did the Taster menu in the restaurant our first night. The meal was incredible. Loved the fact that if you have bought your ticket to the temples online you can enter via the hotel's private entrance. Great stay.

    A planned wedding with loud music until 1am should have been disclosed at the time of booking. We were assured a quiet room and found it was 50 feet from the band and on the street. Service is very nice and polite but reception desk is completely useless. Won’t be coming back.
