Just returned from a wonderful 2-week holiday at Villa Costa. Prior to our arrival we did have some concerns due to the reported issues around the refurbishment of the room we had booked some months before. We booked our holiday with Sovereign and on our experience, they could have been better in terms of obtaining and sharing information to reassure... More

My wife and I stayed at the Villa Costa in the Chloe room for 14 nights up to 19th July. The room is 95% complete with a few cosmetic touches still needed. The veranda is in the sun up to 8pm at night and is only slightly over looked to the rear.I can say that the room is certainly not... More

We have just returned from spending a week at Villa Costa and would agree with all of the 5* reviews. Mario has developed a concept unusual to Greece that is very appealing to his clientele - first and foremost exceptional food and wine followed by a small, intimate environment (only 8 rooms) with fantastic service. We were upgraded from half... More

My wife and I, having been regular visitors to the enchanting island of Kefalonia since 2001, often admired from afar the Villa Costa in Skala but always found the hotel fully booked. It is not difficult to understand why. On our first visit on 23 June 2015, fourteen months after making a reservation, we arrived to find a wonderfully relaxing... More

Villa Costa is without doubt a superb boutique hotel, and has a staff who work hard 7 days a week to ensure the highest level of service I have found anywhere, and ensure your holiday is satisfactory. This year there is a new boat trip available run by Villa Costa which offers a full day trip, including lunch on a... More

Like other reviewers we were due to be going to Villa Costa this Sunday 14th June only to find out today(Friday 12th) that our room is not ready, we booked in October 2014! To say we are angry is an understatement, this would have been our 5th visit to Villa Costa which has been outstanding as an establishment and we... More

In total agreement with other two reviews. We booked 6 months before holiday date. Only to be told 3 days before holiday our rooms were not ready, really bad on Villa Costa part. They must have known well in advance they would not be ready. I too wouldnever book this hotel.

Our plane was delayed so we didn't arrive until almost midnight but Mario, the proprietor, was at the front gate to shake our hands in welcome to his little oasis of peace. As we had missed dinner they had left delicious baguettes, a dessert and wine in our room without any prompting from anyone. That pretty much set the theme... More
