The best hotel everPosted Nov 17, 2013
Pros: Subtle sophistication, well-trained staff, hotelier cordiality
Location: Valle dei Templi; Contrada "Kaos", Luigi Pirandello's native home;
We thought we'd seen it all, but we were wrong! We booked this hotel following the suggestion of our friends (rather picky people in matters of convenience) and what a revelation! Although we expected it to be excellent, it was beyond. We spent one week in September at The Antica Perla Residence Hotel of Agrigento, and we could have stayed forever. There is so much to see and so much to enjoy! Everyone could not have been happier. The rooms, beds, breakfast, pool, service, and inherent Sicilian hospitality of staff and family-employees made our Sicilian vacation unforgettable. We can see why this grand hotel is given highest scores from all its guests. Where can you swim in an outdoor heated pool just few steps from Mediterranean Sea with the magnificent and unique Valle dei Templi and snowcapped, expiring on the incandescent lava Etna volcano surrounding you? Definitely breathtaking views! A great place to get away and live the good life in this extraordinary Hotel run by a fantastic person, Mr. Antonio, master of his craft, generous and magnanimous person, in this fascinating and charismatic town of Agrigento with its 2.5 thousand-year of mind-boggling history (was founded in 581 BC by ancient Greek colonists), the birthplace of Luigi Pirandello, the greatest Italian of the XX century.

Great Hotel in AgrigentoPosted Oct 12, 2013
Pros: Location, size and condition of room.
Location: Very close to the valley of the Temples and right across the road from the beach.
We were only there one night but staff were helpful and friendly room was large and very comfortable for 5 people. Nice large balcony with view over the ocean.

Great base for visiting the Valley of the TemplesPosted Oct 10, 2013
Pros: Great value for the price - and stylish too!
Cons: Not the hotel's fault - the immediate surroundings aren't that attractive, despite being on the sea front - and no restaurant within walking distance.
Location: Valley of the Temples and Regional Museum - stunning. And Agrigento is worth a visit - a much nicer town that it looks from a distance!
This hotel was a real bargain! We had a big, well-appointed room with a balcony (side view of the sea); it also had a small kitchen and a table for meals. The hotel is contemporary in style, has an outdoor pool, parking in the grounds and provided good breakfasts in the Italian style. It was a great location for visiting the Valley of the Temples - better than staying in Agrigento itself (which. although worth a visit, is not easy to get around in). The only downside is the location, which, although right by the sea, is in a relatively unattractive residential area. Staff were helpful in providing information, including location of restaurants (the best of which we found in nearby San Leone) because the hotel doesn't serve evening meals. Or, of course, we could have prepared a simple meal in our room using its small kitchen.

No beach facilities or service at the beach. No restaurant on the premises, however the people at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The area around the hotel is not attractive and the cleanliness needs to be improved (garbage not picked up) More info should be available on the activities in the area

Nice hotel on the MediterraneanPosted Sep 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
We spent one night here while exploring the Southeast part of Sicily. The hotel was clean and modern. The room had a balcony overlooking the Sea. The view was grand. The beach itself (not part of the hotel) was disappointing, but the water was nice. The location was reasonably near to the sites in the region, All in all, for the price we paid, it was a good deal.

Beautiful viewsPosted Sep 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
What a brilliant hotel overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The room was spacious and clean.The staff were very friendly and helpful even giving us a lift one night into San leone centre and offering to bring us back if required. There is a very good pizzeria next door which we ate at a few times, there is also a good restaurant a the top of the road (30 min walk) We used it has a base to discover this side of Sicily, close to the valley of the temples,would advise you hire a car though. The swimming pool was clean and big and there were plenty sun beds to use.

Wonderful Gem by the SeaPosted Aug 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
We loved the accomodations, which were clean, updated, energy efficient and wonderful, friendly, courteous staff. Situated across the street from the beach and a great late night restaurant. The views were wonderful and we will return.

Not what we expectedPosted Jul 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
We booked two days but left after the first day. The neighborhood was not very good and we were very isolated. You could not walk to any restaurant because there weren't any close by and the area was dicey. Beach was not really usable and dirty. A lot of garbage and surprisingly graffiti around. Due to these conditions we left early and did not stay our second day there. The staff was pleasant but could not overcome our disappointment with the location. We strongly suggest renting a car if you are planning on staying at this hotel as nothing is close by and cab fare ran about 20 Euros each way to the city proper.
