Wish I could give 3.5 because Its above average but not quite very good. I was struggling to pinpoint why but looking back its because its such a small hotel it does become very cliquey (so agree with previous poster). The foods very nice but after a week the menu repeats itself and we didn't fancy the barbecue either week....

Our first, and last, visit to this property. It has a nice location but it was very cliquey and as we visited at the end of October it was very cold eating as the dining room is not inside and was open to the elements especially in the evening. The meals were very samey and the breakfasts never varied. There...

We had a fortnight towards the end of October. We were very lucky with the weather - sunny days, warm evenings with only 2 days rain during our stay. Temperatures ranged between 21 and 26c. Villa Costa is adult only and has 8 boutique rooms. Ours had sea views and a covered terrace. There was a swimming pool (water slightly...

Our second visit and still first class. A couple of nights the food menu was not to our liking so we ate next door, not a problem. There is a new room now built so one of the rooms is under a "roof" and no longer gets any sun, look before you book. A joy of Costa is there are...

We were there from 6th to 13th September and arrived during a heavy storm. The hotel is an absolute gem. From the moment we arrived and saw our room "Artemis" (top floor on the right) it was just perfect with or without the rain. Right on the front, cross the road and there's the beach with sun beds and umbrellas...

We have just returned from a fantastic week at Mario's hotel. The quality of the facility and the food was excellent. Mario's team were all first class, particularly Theo and his sister as well as Mario's mum, who is still working at 82. The hotel is very small and niche facility with only eight rooms, so you do tend to...

It was our first time at Villa Costa. A superb staff led by Mario, gave us a fantastic relaxing holiday. Theo the waiter/ bar man, a charming man, who made the stay so pleasant. Friendly family service. The food was superb. The Wine Tasting evening was very informative and enjoyable. I tried to find fault,it was hard,the only thing was...

We could have spent all week in the hotel, not walked out of the door and still had a great time, 10 metres (tops) from the beach, Mario a superb host with the rest of the team, including Theo who always has a smile on his face. However we did leave the site and hired a car for 4 days,...

We love Villa Costa; simple as that. There is no where else on Kefalonia that can match it for its charm, style and level of service. As serial returnees we know what to expect and we have never been dissappointed. Mario has a winning formula; its small, relaxed and very friendly. With only 8 rooms you certainly feel special when...
