Gorgeous gardens, stylish interiors, and a great pool scene - the Hotel Contessina is every inch the relaxing Greek getaway. The location also gets top marks. There's a sandy beach close by and Tsilivi's a 5-minute walk away.
From the outside the Hotel Contessina is pretty traditional looking – all pastel-coloured walls and wrought-iron balconies. But head inside and things take a modern turn. In the lobby bar for instance, retro floral wallpaper sits alongside a spot-lit ceiling. The bedrooms are just as stylish, dressed in different shades. What’s more, they come with in-room extras like TVs, air-conditioning and fridges.
Outside, the pool is framed by a roomy sun terrace peppered with loungers and parasols. Pad across the terrace and you’ll find lawns dotted with olive and cypress trees. Plus, there’s a sandy Blue Flag beach nearby.
On the food front, things have been kept pretty simple. Think fresh salads, bar snacks and a wide variety of cocktails, all served up by the pool. For something more substantial, you’ll need to head into Tsilivi itself which is about a five-minute walk away. And when you want to turn the entertainment factor up a notch, Zante Town is well worth a look, too. It’s a ten-minute drive and there’s a bus stop within walking distance of the hotel.

Lovely hotel. Went late sept early oct. We're a married couple in mid forties, enjoyed location however hotel was too quiet for us. No entertainment of any sort so many people left most nights to go elsewhere. Breakfast very satisfying but if you want food you can't order in the evening time. Staff are very polite/helpful. I had a bottle of wine/card/balloon left In room for my birthday and anniversary which are on the same day. Rooms lovely but a bit basic. I would go back to this hotel but earlier in the season. Only saw 2 children here in the fortnight. I'm 45 and I missed the noise a little bit.More

We first went to the Contessina Hotel with friends in 2009. It was so good we had to return. The staff were really helpful & friendly. The rooms were clean & kept that way throughout the 2 weeks we were there. Breakfast was great & although it was the same most mornings there was plenty of choice. The pool was cleaned every night & new chemicals added weekly. The town itself had plenty of bars & restaurants to choose from although after the 1st week we had our favourites that we kept going back to. All within easy walking/staggering distance from the hotel too. I'm sure we'll be back again in future because we loved it so much. Highly recommend going hereMore
The Contessina really is lovely. We had spotted it the year before whilst staying elsewhere in Tsilivi and decided to come home and price it up for this year. We were pleasantly surprised at how reasonably priced it was and therefore our group of 15 family and friends booked up. We couldn't have had a better hotel. Bearing in mind we like to go out and eat at night, the fact that it was just B&B suited us. The hotel is exceptionally clean, the rooms are lovely and the staff excellent. Thanks to Spiros who ran the bar during the day and Sott who ran the bar ALL night long.....sorry for keeping you up so late :) and to all the staff who work so hard to make this hotel so lovely. Would highly recommend. Nicely positioned, super pool, lovely breakfast and lunches and Sott makes a mean Pina Colada and watch out for his family brewed Raki !!!! You wont get better than this hotel for the price.More

We loved it so much that on return I immediately rebooked to come in October as a couple.The hotel is lovely and clean with wonderful staff.The location is perfect. We met many people who return year after year and I can see why. We shall certainly come back.More
Great Hotel - Great Stay - Efharisto
This Hotel had been recommended by close friends - who had enjoyed many excellent Holidays at the Contessina - they were absolutely right. It is easy to see why this Hotel attracts so many returners. There are many things to like about the Contessina - its cleanliness; its facilities; its location; its pool; its breakfast and snack bar; its value for money and its ,bar. However its biggest asset is its wonderful staff - whether reception, cleaning staff or bar/catering staff. They fully understand customer service - are friendly without being intrusive - and were faultless throughout our stay. The Hotel is within easy walking distance of Tsilivi Beach, the Main Street and numerous restaurants and bars. We particularly enjoyed eating at the Olive Tree & Benikos, snacking/drinking at the beachside Boomerang Bar & partaking in a cocktail or two at the Sunset Boulevard next door to the Hotel. A taxi ride to Zante Town is â¬10 or less if you use the local bus service. If we return to Zante - I would have no hesitation in returning to Tsilivi and the Contessina.More
