I was greeted with great courtesy and warmth by Fabio upon arrival. He and Salvatore consistently went out of their way to be helpful. The breakfast was excellent and even offered cooked to order items at no additional charge. The location is perfect for visiting the local attractions. The hotel provides a thoughtful and comprehensive map to plan your visit. For the price, this is an OUTSTANDING value. The only downside is, like most hotels in Europe, a soundproof door and a larger shower would be helpful. Best of all, you are treated and welcomed like family here.

The best side is the kindness and availability of the staff: they are so nice and do all to make you happy! The worst side is that the restaurant is not at all flexible: you can do half board only if all people in the same room do it. Half board dinner is made of 4 courses.... honestly too much. As a result, you have to eat "à la carte" no matter what. breakfast on the contrary is perfect, with real italian coffee/cappuccino done at the bar and a lot of salty and sweet things. Nice swimming pool but with too loud music and lots of animation = you can't relax there... Rooms are ok, with a splendid balcony, but they are very badly isolated and you can hear noise from the corridor.

San Leone is ideal for visiting the Valley of Temples & Agrigento and after a hard day's site seeing, it is very pleasant to be able to wander along the promenade by the sea. On arrival, the hotel does not look particularly prepossessing, but don't be put off - the staff are excellent, the rooms are clean and the breakfast buffet very good. We also ate in the hotel one evening and had a very good meal.There is also a pool across the road if in need of a dip.

Cheap hotel very close to the Temple Valley. Decent rooms, not suggested for food: the antipasto had no fresh ingredients and the cooking was really poor, not to speak about the wine. Consider it for staying one or two nights if you want to go around Agrigento and its surroundings.

The only point is that adjacent to the hotel some construction works were carried on at about 7.00am but we still slept well. I would recommend this hotel to all when staying at Agrigento.

The drivers were helpful and proud of their heritage. A bus was organised to go to the beach as well. A well-run hotel.

The staff was nice and friendly but the room we got really stank of smoke. Apparently some host had smoked inside before and the room wasn't cleaned properly. Upon demand, they gave us an other room with no problems but the morning after we were awaken by noises of somebody slamming the doors, more than once. As the hotel was not that crowded, we suspect it was the hotel staff to be slamming the doors while working (we were on the 1st floor). When we made them notice this the morning after, the answer we got was "We'll report this to the right person", but they were kinda laughing in our face when we said that. Not a great customer service experience I must say. Great location for visiting the Valley of Temples tho.

First, a few minor negatives: The breakfast was very basic, and the single room a bit too small (as well as the bed). The free Wi-Fi proved a bit difficult to set up (attempt eventually abandoned). The shower cabin floor was covered with iffy planks to stand on. Otherwise a great hotel with an own gated parking lot, and just a few clicks from the ancient ruins.

The hotel location is 5-min walk from the sea, and 5-min car ride from the valley temple. The value for money was very high as this was the cheapest B&B we found on our trip. We had a breakfast buffer with cornetti, access to swimming pool, private parking and spacious room. Even though the staff was not as welcoming as in other places we recommend that place for anybody willing to visit the valley of temples and have a sea/swimming pool break.

OverallI had a wonderful time at Cosatzzurra. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. I stayed a full week and was really glad I did. The instructions were very clear to follow from Agrigento, and the bus stop right outside the hotel is truly a bonus. I spent a couple of days lounging about the pool, but I have to say it was not for anything more than cooling down in; far too small for laps for anyone else who does enjoy proper swimming.The breakfasts were fantastic; so nice to have such a range of food on offer other than the just a continental breakfast. Meals in the restaurant were also reasonably priced and of high standard. As much as I hate supermarkets, I have to say it was a bonus having one three doors up the road, as well as a great pizza restaurant. I have to say I was one of only two single travellers, so this was a slight drawback. The afternoon trip to the ruins and to Reale to see the Turkish steps were a highlight, thanks to the vivacious staff.My main criticism is that it probably needs to be a little clearer that the main beaches which are best for swimming in are a bus ride away. Thus you need to walk to the end of the street the hotel is on and catch a bus there, or take one outside the hotel and then change at the end of the street. The hotel is situated near the end of the bus loop from Agrigento. This also needs to be made a little clearer. As well as the fact that this loop only goes one way. I worked it out by speaking the language and asking lots of questions. Perhaps the staff might like to wear nametags though or introduce themselves by name? After a whole week I felt embarrassed not knowing anyone's names, especiallly when the staff came up to me while I was waiting at the bus stop to greet me goodbye. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to get away from the busy thoroughfare of the main street. I had a great stay. Thank you,. And thank you for the complimentary bottle of red on my departure. Antonio Castello,Aus.

This was a really nice hotel in one of the most amazing cities in the world (that is, if you are an ancient history buff--and if you aren't, it isn't likely you would travel to Agrigento in any event). The owner poured us a welcoming drink upon our arrival and was extremely hospitable and helpful. Free parking, fair prices, supermarket nearby, free internet, comfortable bed--it doesn't get any better than that in a 3 star hotel in Italy.

A nice holiday at San Leone. Recently they opended a full size swimming pool area with bar and lounge at the parking lot. A really great breakfast buffet with fresh bread, cake and large variety of fresh fruit. Traffic from the main road can be very loud even late at night but with air conditioning one can keep the windows shut. No private beach resort facilities any more as stated in the discription but clean public beaches are a walk or short ride with car away and the new pool is really an alternative.

Very comfortable hotel, well situated less than a 10 minute drive to the Valley of the Temples. Easy to get to with our TomTom, though I doubt it would be much more difficult with just a printed map. Plenty of parking, with a new lot being refurbished. We were traveling in Sicily in the off-season so we didn't run into any crowds. Imagine it likely is bustling during the warmer months given the fact that it's a reasonable walk to the beach. The room comfortably slept 2 adults and our 2 young children, age 11 and 6. The bathroom was well appointed, though the shower was a little snug. Very reasonably priced menu at dinner with a nice variety and quite tasty. Breakfast is continental style offering enough variety to satisfy the entire family. Costazzurra was perfect for our needs as we toured the island. We'd recommend it without hesitation.

Staff here were very helpful, spoke English well. Comfortable family-size room; convenient parking and location near the beach. Minor complaints: food was so-so; towels were scratchy; spa unheated; and the "laundry service" is only a very expensive wash/press service that charged by the piece. We were told there were no self-servie laundromats, but there are some in town. Also you do have to haul your baggage up a few steps before you reach the lift. Check out Agora bakery in nearby village.

Hotel Costazzurra was nice and pleasant; the staff, consisting of father and son, were very friendly. Two things were unexpected to us: what sold us was their webpage which shows the beach, the ocean, and of course, the Valley of Temples which was the reason for us to visit Agrigento. The hotel was no where near the water, and quite far from the Valley of Temples. In addition, if you wanted to try a restaurant, there were no restaurants nearby, you had to eat at the hotel. Almost all guests tried to go to a restaurant and ended up returning to the hotel for dinner. Food was not the greatest, my italian sausage and chicken were undercooked inside. We were only staying there 2 nights so we stuck it out. The owners were very nice and friendly, they gave us a bottle of wine upon our departure--nice gesture. We should have stayed closer to the Valley of Temples. The hotel's webpage is well presented and gives you the impression that you'll be by the ocean but you are not. The beach houses which you could reserve must be located away from this property because there is no ocean nearby.

Dot and I spent 6 days in Sicily but only one night at Agrigento. The Valley of the Temples and its museums are an absolute treasure. We were warmly welcomed to the Costazzura which is a family business managed by two brothers. The welcome included a very good DVD highlighting the Valley of the Temples and other Agrigento sights. Whilst we were there nothing was too much trouble, and we were able to get all the information we needed about travel options, plus a recommendation to a nearby gelati cafe (unfortunately our travel arrangements meant the only chance we had to get there was when we passed during 'La Pausa'. The meals provided a good range of Italian / Sicilian options that were good value for money. I couldn't recommend this hotel more highly - we're not after the broad range of services available through 4 or 5 star places, and Costzzurra delivers exactly what we wanted at a good price. Other hotels could learn a lot from the way our hosts looked after us.

The Costazzurra brothers are well educated in the Hotel Business. They are up and coming entrepreneurs, we wish them well. It was somewhat of a relief to be able to communicate in English to the brothers, who made every effort to answer all our questions about our surroundings.

The location of the hotel is excellent if you are going to the temples, 10 minute drive. The area around the hotel, towards the beach was very nice for walking. We had some difficulty finding the hotel at night, but a kind man led us there with his truck. The family that owns this hotel was very nice.

The staff at Hotel Costazurra were extremely welcoming and helpful. The hotle has a restaurant which served very authentic sicilian food and good wine list. This family run business offered us a very pleasant stay and we would go back there again. A short walk to the beach was great and free parking and internet facilites.

Best experience out of 4-hotels during our trip. Family run hotel with attention to detail given by two charming sons of old man who a bit grumpy. Given an upgraded rooom on arrival and a bottle of red wine on leaving. Surrounding poor because of abandoned partly built high rise on same grounds. Room view onto this building. Food excellent with good service. Highly recommended.

Nous avons été enchantés de ce choix. L'accueil y est très sympathique et l'ambiance familiale et sans prétention. La chambre était tout à fait correcte et la salle de bains impeccable. Le dîner était très agréable et à prix raisonnable. Le petit déjeûner était classique et le café excellent. L'environnement de l'hôtel est assez tristounet et San Leone est sans intérêt mais à cinq minutes de la fabuleuse "Vallée des Temples". Malheureusement, l'insonorisation intérieure de l'hôtel n'est pas très bonne. Mais, quand on est fatigué par une longue journée de visite, on y dort quand même très bien. Grand parking fermé très sécurisant.

A new hotel just a few kilometres from Agrigento. The room was clean, huge and quiet (perhaps those which give to the main road aren´t so quiet). The staff very helpfull and professional. A wonderfull stay.

Firstly I would like to commend the Costazzura Hotel for the excellect directions. We were driving from Trapani and from the time we left the motorway the hotel was signposted. We got an excellent welcome from the owner when we arrived. He supplied us with maps and advice on what to see in the area. We were given an upgraded room which was spotlessly clean and had a balcony. Unfortunately, the balcony overlooked a derelict building. The restaurant is very good value. Typical Sicilian food is served (sometimes a bit heavy handed with the sauces). After each meal we had there we were given either a complimentary liqeur or desert. When we left we were given a bottle of local wine.

This is fantastic hotel.The staff are very helpful, they 'go the extra mile!; the rooms are great and the food excellent. We stayed in 4 hotels in sicily on our stay and this was by far the best. It doent have sea views, but it is only a very short walk to the beach and the attractions are not far away by car or bus.The secure car park is a nice touch (remote controlled gates). Its a shame it doesnt have a pool, but the whirlpool they have is OK, and with the beach so close it doesnt really matter(small charge for private beach or free public beach). It was very hot weather when we were there and their airconditioning in the rooms worked well. But the best thing about this hotel which makes it so special is the people who run it (a family business), who know how to treat their guests. I would recommend it and would definately stay there again.

A perfect place to stay whilst visiting Palermo, with the benefit of a peaceful environment to return to. Our room had an amaxing view over the valley towards Palermo and the sea, you can have breakfast on the terrace with the same view. Monreale itself is a great place to spend a day, the Cathedral is amazing and there are a number of good restaurants. The hotel was not at all busy, considering we stayed there at the end of July. I can't imagine why as I would strongly recommend it for the view alone.

Most convenient stopover for visiting the ancient sites at Agrigento. Very helpful & friendly staff. An evening walk to the beach is interesting, but don't expect the refinement of a posh resort!

If you can, STAY HERE! The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the public beach and a 5 minute drive from the Valley of the Temples. It is family run and the service is excellent. We usually don't eat at the hotels we stay at but the family was so nice we decided to try it. Before dinner the son offered us a Sicilian appertiv wine to try. For 16 Euro each we got a 4 course, excellent, home cooked meal. The rooms are spacious, there is free internet in the lobby, and gated parking. When we checked out the family gave us a bottle of the wine we tried the night before as a present. I sincerely recommend this hotel if you plan on a visit to Valley of the Temples and Agrigento.

Good modern hotel in seaside resort of San Leone. You can get there from Agrigento railway station on bus number 2 which does a loop round San Leone and stops opposite the hotel on return journey. Same bus for temples area. Location OK - short walk to beach and restaurants.

Hotel had very secure parking, which is important. Staff was extremely gracious - family-run. The breakfast was not great, but the restaurant for dinner, after a long day of driving, was quite good. Not having to get into our car and drive to find a restaurant was a blessing.

if it were in a quiet area, i would rate this hotel much higher - double room was comfortable, single room was cell-like - very noisy at night - no view - traffic, barking dogs - breakfast unremarkable, but dinner marvelous - very friendly, extremely helpful family staff - salvatore & his family couldn't have been more helpful - relatively convenient location - plenty of secure parking - not far from beach & restaurants - beach not ready for tourists, yet - close to archaelogical area -

This hotel is in San Leone, a rather faded seaside town, not Agrigento. It is also located about 10 mins walk from the seafront and is surrounded by half constructed concrete shells. Having said that the hotel itself is comfortable with good sized rooms and some spacious balconies. Plentiful secured parking. Quiet location although limited soundproofing between rooms. Good value restaurant serves meat only menu, Le Caprice up the road offers more choice but at a significantly greater cost. Overall a reasonable base if you have a car.

You can like it or not, but in the morning there is a strong smell of brioche going into everywhere (which enters the bedrooms ...). I liked it, my husband did not ... . Anyway, a little bit noisy because there is not moquette or wood, but it is "only" a three star hotel and, therfore, excellent!
