“Excellent, intimate little hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

It really is little - only three rooms. That translates into perfect, personal service: everything is spotless, and the owner (John) is more a host than a hotel-owner, serving breakfast (large, fresh, excellent quality and variety) on demand, helping with taxis, supplying recommendations for car hire, restaurants and sightseeing - anything to make your holiday better. You get your own keys and can come and go as you please.
The hotel location is excellent, in a small, quiet side street in the old city (be aware that if you have a lot of luggage, you will have a short walk - 2 to 3 minutes - to where you can get a taxi).
We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough: my wife and I stayed 10 days, and from arrival (to find a bottle of wine and glasses waiting for us) to departure (John insisted on coming very early to ensure we met our taxi to the airport) we have nothing but praise.

Room Tip: There basically aren't any bad rooms - the only difference is size.

Zacosta is a gem: comfortable, very quiet, and in the middle of the old walled city. The owner, John P., is very knowledgeable and a warm, cordial and supportive host. His patio breakfasts are wonderful. Rooms are fine: roomy, and well-lit, very comfortable beds. Our group was extremely pleased in all respects; we would all enjoy a return trip -- especially in the off-season period, when tourists are few.

I recently stayed there with my wife, two kids and parents and would highly recommend it. John is a very generous and knowledgeable host. The location of the hotel is ideal and the rooms are well appointed and very cozy. As other reviewers have noted, the breakfasts are fantastic. A great, low-key yet extremely comfortable place to stay.

My partner and I stayed at the Zacosta Villa for a short break in September. The owner - John - really is the perfect host. The location is great. The rooms are lovely. The court yard is heaven - ideal to sit back and relax in if you want a break from the hustle and bustle. The breakfast was superb - what a spread. Luxury bathgowns, slippers & toiletries.
The ideal place to stay if visiting Rhodes. Would love to go back one day, and would definitely return to the Zacosta Villa Hotel.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room and as a result had our own door out to the court yard which was great. W...

My Husband and I stayed at the Zacosta Villa Hotel for a few nights in January for our honeymoon.. We had the most wonderful time at the Zacosta Hotel.. Please stay here!! You will not be disappointed! John was a fantastic host! He waited for us to arrive in our cab then carried out luggage for us to the hotel! We had a bottle of wine waiting for us at the room when we got in.. The room was so cozy and perfect for us! The Location of the Zacosta Hotel was very convenient! It was very easy for us to walk wherever we needed to go.. John also recommended some tour guides and cabs for us.. I also need to add that the breakfast was amazing!!! Thanks again John!
