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... More

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,... More

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... More

Mario and his small team made our holiday a most lovely and relaxing experience. From the minute we entered the gates and were guided to our room we were in heaven. The food was excellent and the atmosphere full of calmness and serenity. It was unfortunate that we were unable to stay for the two weeks we had planned however... More

First time visitors in June. We picked Villa Costa mainly due to all the wonderful reviews and we were definitely not disappointed. I don't think I have ever got into relaxation mode as quickly as I did on arrival. Again on the theme of other recent reviews, we too would like to point out that if you are not prepared... More

We have just returned from our second visit to the splendid Villa Costa boutique hotel in beautiful Skala. Before extolling the qualities of this charming hotel, we must respond to the somewhat pompous review posted on Trip Advisor on 16 July. In some respects, we would agree with the contributor that the evening cuisine was occasionally disappointing and it certainly... More

Mario and team did a great job and made our holiday one to remember. We are back next year Mario in July with Andy/Mandy hopefully so make sure the bar is stocked... More

This was our third visit to Villa Costa and I really can not recommend it highly enough. From the moment you step out of the taxi at the hotel gates you know that you are on holiday and that you can simply relax and enjoy your beautiful surroundings. Villa Costa is an eight roomed hotel set on the beach road... More

This was our first visit to Kefalonia and we chose to stay at the Villa Costa in Skala, mainly due to the fantastic reviews that we had read. We were not dissapointed! We were greeted on arrival by the villa owner Mario, who took us to our room through the beautifully manicured grounds. We stayed in the Nausicaa, which is... More
