    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Costazzurra San Leone

    Not Bad


    Overall, I would have to say that my wife and I enjoyed our stay at the hotel. We found the son (Salavatore) most helpful with his command of the English language and helpful advice. I would also say tht the food and service of their in-house restaurant was adequate and convenient. Besides the hotel not being located very close to any of the downtown plazas or shopping areas (the bus assisted with this situation), the other thing we did not care for was the terrible view outside of our nice and spacious balcony. Outside of our window was this gigantic structure being built (another hotel?) that looked as though construction had ceased. It was certainly an eyesore to say the least. These several issues aside, we would have no problem staying there again and enjoying Salvatore and his father's hospitaility.

    Friendly helpful staff and very clean rooms


    We stumbled across this little gem after arriving in Agrigento late one evening--we'd been on the road all day. After checking out a couple of places that were full and a couple that were ghastly we found "The Costazzurra". The front desk staff were very accommodating and welcoming and we were shown to our clean and minimalist rooms--fresh white sheets, wardrobe, TV and a four piece bath. The rooms also came with secured parking directly across the street from the hotel, a real bonus. Breakfast was the traditional continental style with cappuccino, brioche, lots of fresh fruit and cheese, little biscuits etc, very tasty and appealing. The hotel is run by the La Gaipa family and we were treated in a very professional and courteous manner by Gioacchino and his sons. (Other staff were equally good)

    During our stay at "The Costazzura" I developed an infection in my finger which needed antibiotics. I was really quite worried. Gioacchino suggested a visit to the pharmacist before heading to the doctor. I was able to obtain pills directly from the pharmacist and I know that Gioacchino's advice saved me many euro and I'm sure a long day's wait to see a doctor. When you travel so far from home and you need medical help, you really need a man like Gioacchino!!!

    I want to say that the kindness of the family towards me was sincerely appreciated and what could have been a complicated and expensive mess was completely averted by Gioacchino's wisdom.

    I would highly recommend "The Costazzurra" to any travellers visiting beautiful Agrigento.

    Wouldn't stay here again....


    I waited till the last minute to book a spot in Agrigento, and was looking for 2 rooms as we are a family of six.

    It was rainy to begin with - which obviously isn't the fault of the hotel - but the atmospohere of the rooms was cold. The showers didn't look like they'd been well-cleaned (which may or may not have simply been a hard water issue). Regardless, I didn't use it.

    Overall....I would recommend looking for something else.

    Very nice hotel friendly welcome


    I'm a Spanish women living in Rome wtih family, We have just come back from a trip in Sicily and, my family stayed 3 days at Costazzurra. It's a nice 3 star renewed resort, well managed. The staff was very nice with me and my children, the lovely beach near the hotel was well equipped; the room with balcony was clean and well funished.



    Avoid this hotel at all cost. They barely acknowledge you when you arrive, don't offer to help you with luggage. I was traveling alone (women) I got a single room where both my luggage & myself barely fit & if your bigger than a 5 ft. 100 lb. person you'll die laughing at the size of the shower. My advise again run! And yes there is a building next to it that is merely a begining of another part of their hotel I know why nobody goes there.

    Don't torture yourself


    At best this property is a 2 star and that is being very generous!! If you have ever watched "Seinfeld" you are familiar with the "Soup Nazi"....well this place is run by the "Hotel Nazi". We stayed there in Sept. 2002, it was very hot, the airconditioner was minimal at best but was turned off around midnight, you awake around 2am drenched in persperation. At around 5:30 or 6am the fishman BLASTS his loudspeaker that he is open for business, it will scare the begebees out of wakeup call. As for breakfast...pack granola bars. Elevator is the size of a small phone booth, the shower is even smaller so don't drop the'll have to get out of the shower to pick it up. Please....stay anywhere else!!!

    Loved the hotel, will go again


    My partner and I would just like to say, that we have just returned from San Leone and we stayed at the Costazzurra. we were very pleased, the room were great, the hotel very clean, the food excellent and the owners and staff very hospitable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Ok it was a little way from the beach, but they have an agreement with the BSide Beach and it was clean and enjoyable. I's so nice to dress up in the evenings and 'strut your stuff.'

    Not even the cats ate the food


    The hotel was empty in March. San Leone is not a place to go if you want to enjoy the beach. My family stayed in three rooms and although my son's room stunk they refused to change his room. The service was minimal and rude. We ate in the hotel but nobody was able to eat the second course. The waiter/owner said the cats would eat well tonight, but the next morning we saw the food outside. Not even the cats could eat it. Although the description says that they have heating, by ten they turn it off for the night even though it was cold. This place left a very bad taste in our mouth.

    Ugly Neighborhood, Curt Service


    The Costazzura Hotel in Agrigento is located next to the concrete frame of

    a six-story building (finished next year? year after? ever?) in a residential area. Fortunately, we had a car to get to restaurants, ruins, etc. because

    there was nothing nearby.

    The service was minimal, the rooms clean but smelling of smoke.

    The breakfast was also minimal, not like the others we had in Sicily.

    The three-star hotel had a good price, but we could have done better.

    Would not recommend this hotel.

    Day 34 - Agrigento & the Valley of Temples

    A travel blog entry by patanddavid on Sep 06, 2015

    Our task today was to try explore and understand the ancient area close by to us I.e., The Valley of the Temples. The Valley of the Temples is a historical site of massive proportion situated just two kilometres from our hotel. It is in fact the largest and best preserved area of Ancient Greek temples and building to be found outside of Greece itself and is believed to have been constructed between the years 510 BC and 430 BC. In ancient times, the ...

    This morning we took our time booking out of our great little Cefalu B&B with the view that a slightly later start would hopefully see some of the traffic moved out of the narrow streets we were destined to travel along. Our target for today was to reach the city of Agrigento located approximately 2.5 hours from Cefalu on the Southern Coast of Sicily. We've been quite looking forward to our 2 nights stopover in this little ...

The Concordia temple is said to be the most impressive Greek Doric temple still in existence, after Athens’s Parthenon, and almost wholly entact. The structure was later adapted as a Christian church and numerous tombs have been escavated.

    After scorching ourselves walking through the extensive valley of temples it was time to hit the ...

    ... oh, it's free as part of a European Union/Unesco project for sailors coming into various ports around Sicily and Italy. So this morning we were taken to visit the magnificent Doric temples at Agrigento. These temples were built around 2500 years ago and are well worth a visit.

    However the temperature is around 35 degrees throughout the day and even the wind is really warm! We have no complaints. We are falling in love with Sicily.
