Outstanding Hotel and Spa. Stayed for 2 nights with a spa and meal package.
Reception was courteous, friendly and informative.
The room was modern extremely clean and well maintained.
Great transportation provided if you want to visit the beach or Valley of the Temples.
The restaurant provided a well balanced selection of pasta, seafood and meat dishes. The breakfast buffet has multiple assortments of grains, pastry, juices, meat, eggs, fruit etc. The staff, presentation and food was first class.
The Spa was one of the best I have visited throughout Europe and America. What makes it so special is you are provided a private spa area that is incredible modern with an extra large spa/jacuzzi, Turkish Steam room, Swedish sauna, a multi jet shower and relaxing areas to relax and have a chilled water or hot tea. The massage therapist are highly trained and professional. I liked it so much I booked two spa days while I was there.
I am already planning my return.

We'd recommend this hotel for anyone staying in the Agrigento / Valley of the Temples area. Run by two brothers who speak excellent English (as do many staff) and give considerable attention to the detail of what makes for an enjoyable stay. It is quite upscale for the room rates and our family room was spacious, modern and nicely decorated in minimalist style, as all rooms seem to be following a major renovation. It had a good small balcony with a glimpse of the sea from the suburb of San Leone it is located in, about 300m from the beach, though lower rooms might not see the water. Worked well for us with two teenage children who enjoyed the pool area (separate from the hotel but easy to access and really nice) and the shuttle service to the private sandy beach area the hotel can access though for an additional sum to guests. This has superb swimming and a restaurant for a lazy beach lunch. The hotel will organise visits to the amazing Valley of the Temples and other sites though we hired a car so made our own way around. The appealing hilltop city of Agrigento is nearby as is the hard to find but well worth discovering Farm Cultural Park in another hilltop city, Favara. The hotel has its own restaurant much used by non guests, and we thought the food was okay though quite pricey so we mostly ate out for a range of Sicilian eating experiences, which can be wonderful. Breakfasts are good but a guest advised us to ask for a coffee from the kitchen not the machine in the dining room - an invaluable tip. The staff are great and very keen to help with local knowledge and anything you need.

Great and helpful staff that also speaks English. Very neat and clean. They decorated our room with swans made out of towels and rose petals sprinkled around and Proseco. Be mindful if you have any seafood allergies, let them know before hand because they are very accommodating. My girlfriend has a shell fish allergy and although it was a set menu for the dinner, Mario worked hard and adjusted it for her. The spa services were amazing! The Turkish bath was very relaxing, followed by a soothing massage, ending with an awesome exfoliating scrub. Also, they provided us with transportation from the hotel to the Valley of the Temples and back. It was a great stay for Valentine's weekend. I would definitely recommend a nice getaway here.

We stayed here for visiting the Valley of Temples. It's just a few minutes drive distance with a car. Hotel seems also provides shuttle to the site return for a fee of 10 EUR. To the sandy beach just walk five minutes. Hotel has secure and free car parking and a swimming pool. The hotel restaurant also provides delicious local food. Highly recommended. The staff at both reception and restaurant are very friendly and helpful. When we complained about the party noise on the same floor, they immediately changed our room to another floor, a quiet place. THANK YOU!

The hotel room is clean and spacious, but the wall's sound isolation needs to be improved.

My wife and I loved Hotel Costazzurra because it was like spending three nights in paradise. The staff provided first rate services in all respects. Fabio and Ricardo were exceptional in every possible way. They carried our suitcases to our room, arranged for hotel shuttle transfers to the Valley of Temples and to downtown Agrigento, provided us with helpful information regarding the locations of the supermarket, pharmacy, and restaurants. and answered our many questions about Sicily. The room was very comfortable with excellent air conditioning which is a great relief in the Sicilian summer. Dinner at the restaurant was a remarkable outside dining experience featuring delicious Sicilian food and a DJ that played both Italian and English language music including many Frank Sinatra songs. The hotel also offers a complementary breakfast 0700 until 1030 each morning featuring an excellent selection of hot and cold food choices. The swimming pool was wonderful with crystal clear water, plenty of chase lounges, pleasant music that was similar to the restaurant, a waiter to serve food and drink and Italian landscaping that was simply breath taking. The hotel also offers free parking which is a big plus in Sicily. I highly recommend Hotel Costazzurra and we will definitely stay here again should we ever have the good fortune of visiting Sicily again.

Our family had an excellent stay at Hotel Costazzurra in San Leone. We pre-arranged for a driver from the hotel, Salvatore, to collect us from Agrigento Centrale train station. Salvatore is friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The hotel is very clean with a laid back beach town vibe. My husband and I stayed in the newer building, and our 4 teenagers stayed in the tower. All rooms are well appointed and comfortable, with excellent showers. The hotel pool area is just awesome. The pool attendant and bartender, Marco, gave us exceptional service, always with a friendly smile. We ate dinner in the hotel restaurant, and we really enjoyed the delicious pizza, the lovely outdoor seating, and once again, the excellent service. The breakfast was great, too, with your typical assortment of meat, cheese, eggs, yogurts, fruits, and pastries. We were grateful for the free shuttle services to The Valley of the Temples, and to the hotel’s private section of Havana Beach. For $10 per person, we rented chaise lounges and umbrellas at this beautiful beach, which also has a full snack bar and cocktail bar.
A relaxing day well spent! I must mention that Ricardo and Mario (and Mario’s sweet dog Fulvo), also added to our wonderful experience at this welcoming hotel. Don’t miss the rooftop garden with hot tub! Lastly, the hotel manager gifted us with a box of 6 bottles of wine upon our departure, as a thank you for staying with them. Wow, what a great hotel. We will return again to this gem of a place!

We stayed at Hotel Costazzurra Museum & Spa between 23rd July and 30th July and we can say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As a family of 9, this was an excellent base for our stay in Agrigento. We were in town to celebrate our parents 50th wedding anniversary and found the location great for such a big event.

Located near the valley of temples, beach and restaurants, we highly recommend the hotel for anyone wanting to explore the gorgeous San Leone area and surrounding Agrigento province. It is also a great base for those wanting to explore the gorgeous south-west side of the island of Sicily.

Run by 2 brothers, the establishment is extremely family friendly. The staff were professional, knowledgeable, friendly and spoke excellent English. All rooms were clean, modern and well maintained. The hotel has a lovely spa equipped with jacuzzi and treatments – ideal for those who are looking for a relaxation day.

The service provided was impeccable – as mentioned by previous reviewers, the hotel will organize shuttle services (to and from) to various areas of the surrounding area (Valley of the Temples, Scala dei Turchi, Agrigento city center, beaches etc for a sum). Staff were always available for any help, questions or support.

The swimming pool area, which is separate was excellent for those who fancied a lazy pool day. It is rather spacious and has a little bar where you can order drinks and food.

We opted for Bed & Breakfast however ate several times at the in-house restaurant operated by the hotel. The restaurant food was of a great quality and the staff were attentive and friendly. A big shout out to Mario & team for being so wonderful. For those who fancy eating out, the hotel is a stone throw away from some amazing restaurants, bars and ice cream parlours!

Additionally, we would like to say a BIG thank you to the hotel for the excellent service they provided for our parents 50th wedding anniversary celebration (catering, flowers etc). We had approx. 30 guests at the event and the hotel went out of there way to make it a well organized and memorable event – my parents were absolutely delighted with everything.

In all, we highly recommend the Hotel Costazzurra Museum & Spa and will most definitely be returning again in the near future!

Easy location to find and drive to with protected parking. Very helpful staff both at the front desk and in the associated restaurant, Il Grecale. Front-desk staff helped us print out some documents while the bilingual waiters not only gave us excellent service but also gave us suggestions for touring Sicily.

Easy walking distance to beach and a short drive to Valle dei Templi.

Don’t recommend booking via Agoda though, discounts and taxes were different than what we expected, but hotel itself was great.

The kindest and friendliest staff at this hotel, which is located in the San Leone beach area of Agrigento. They have car parking, plus pool and recreation area with a bar and these are located directly over the road.
Our modern spacious rooms all had balconies to sit out on. We dined there every night as food excellent and chef came out to meet us each night and explained his nightly new items on menu.
Hotel offers free shuttle to the temples which was perfect for us. They also offer a beauty spa, which we didn't have time to utilise sadly.
It was a short walk down to waterfront where there are shops and restaurants, and it was from there we caught a bus into the town centre.
Great spot to stay.

This was a great hotel for our visit to Agrigento. Everything was so convenient and not stressful at all. The secure parking is right in front of the hotel. As mentioned previously, the hotel offers a free shuttle to the Monuments and Archaeological Museum. In addition, we opted to take the bus into Agrigento proper, and the bus stop is literally right in front of the the hotel. The Staff could not have been better. They were so patient with us, explaining everything from how to access parking to how to get on the bus. The free breakfast was also delicious , and lastly the rooms were spacious and comfortable . We had a lovely balcony and chairs outside our room. Finally, you can walk to the sea very easily, and have a nice meal right by the water. This hotel exceeded our expectations. Thank you all so much for a perfect stay!

10 minutes walk to the closet beach but it’s not very nice. There is a restaurant with a private beach 5 minutes further but it’s about €10 for a sunbed and umbrella.

Dear Eileen, We had a rental car. Given the distance I think that a taxi from the station to the hotel might be the best option. Perhaps you cancall the hotel and ask?
