Gorgeous gardens, stylish interiors and a great pool scene – the Hotel Contessina is every inch the relaxing Greek getaway.
The location of the Hotel Contessina gets top marks. There's a sandy beach close by and Tsilivi is a five-minute walk away.
From the outside the Hotel Contessina has a traditional look, but inside things take a modern turn, with a retro bar and stylish bedrooms. This hotel is part of the Skytours range until April 2017.

Middle of Zakynthos
In June 2016 me and my boyfriend travelled to Zakynthos. Choice of city on the island was made so that traveling all over the island would be easy, because we are the type of people that rent a car and explore the island. The city is situated perfectly in between the main attractions - navagio, Vasilikos with its beaches and the laganas for parties. You have to make a choice: "ok " beach and many restaurants to dine and a touristy street to have an evening stroll( tsilivi) or perfect beach and nothing outside of the hotel (vasilikos) or nasty beach and parties ( laganas). The hotel is perfectly situated near main restaurants, everything in walking distance, the beach is 2 min walk, but we went there once, I advise driving to vasilikos, navagio, xigia, marathia beach. Back to the hotel- rooms very clean, ask for room facing the street, not the pool. There are many British people who enjoy a beer and soccer during the evening and they get loud. The breakfasts are ok, some pastries, fresh fruit, cereal, sausages, bacon and eggs. The hotel has its free parking. Very helpful staff. I drowned my phone and the man at the reception quickly gave me contact in the city where I could fix it. My friends stayed at vasilikos in a 5 star hotel. They enjoyed their lazy holiday but for them to see the whole island was a 40 minute ride just to get to the capital of the island, and about 1,40 to get to navagio. From tsivili we visited navagio a couple of times. Would definitely recommend the hotel and the city! More
This hotel is fantastic. I could not recommend it more highly. Don't get me wrong the rooms are basic but it really is relaxing and clean, friendly staff and bar. This will be our 3rd visit here in June and I can not wait :) More
Travelled for some "girlie" time with myself, sister and mother for a week in June. From the minute you walked in with a warm greeting you felt at home. Lovely pool area, breakfasts great, room clean with good facilities. Hotel well located for easy access to restaurants/bars and not far from beach. Thoroughly enjoyable stay.More

We stayed at the Contessina in August 2016 as a family to attend a family wedding on the island. The hotel is nicely laid out and attractive. It is a little way from the main "action" areas of the town which suited us just fine, it is a pleasant walk into the main town area. It is also close to the beach. Breakfast was fine, albeit a bit squashed as the dining area is not very big. All the main requirements were catered for but the choice wasn't massive to be honest. Not too impressed at having to pay for the fridge and the air conditioning - they are a "must" in August when the temperature is very high and it was quite a steep additional cost on top of what was an expensive holiday. The pool area is very attractive and from what we saw whilst there, and also from what I saw when reviewing where to stay, I would say it is probably one of the best hotel pools in the area. The hotel staff make this hotel - my step son made friends of the bar staff in particular but everyone was very friendly and helpful. Overall, I would recommend this hotel - one of the best ones in this resort.More
" Another Great holiday "
Well what can i say another faultless stay at the Contessina, my partner and i have stayed all around the world and the Contessina draws us back every time. We last stayed here two years ago and cannot believe that the staff even remembered our names. The hotel is spotless but then again they are constantly cleaning around the hotel and its grounds. They are a diamond team of staff and cannot be faulted .Elena makes sure the hotel runs like clockwork and is a very charming lady and so helpful.. Nikos on reception is a great person .He is so friendly but professional at all times . Nikki a new member of staff and was so lovely and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.She would always stop to chat to us and ask if everything is ok.. Nikos the night time receptionist is such a gentlemen and so attentive. Handyman Ronnie ,what a charming man and Ronnie your English is coming on leaps and bounds you sound like a mini Sot. And lastly the Jewel of the hotel, our dear mate Sotti [ very good very good], what a character always laughing and smiley before dinner and after dinner always draws you back to the hotel bar with his infectious personality and makes sure everyone is happy and even gets people mixing together . The hotel is just off from the main strip with loads of restaurants and small but friendly bars. It is a perfect location from everything tucked away in a quiet location only 7 minute walk to the beach. Lastly a huge thank you to everyone at the Contessina hotel.See you all very soon.More
