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.

I booked this hotel following reviews on trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. The rooms were large and airy and spotlessly clean. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and I would like to thank them for all their hard work. Great location in a quieter part of town and only a couple of minutes to a fabulous beach. Pool area was quite busy but as we prefer the beach not an issue. Also be aware that aircon, fridge and safety deposit was an extra cost but overall still great value for money. Want to be back there now!!More
Very friendly and helpful staff . Hotel is very clean everywhere. Close to bars and restaurants and a 5 minute walk from the beach. Definitely be taking family back to the contessina on next years holiday.More

Another fantastic stay at Contessina
If we return to Tsilivi again this is the hotel we would choose again and again. The staff are so lovely here , welcoming, friendly and never tire of helping you -more like friends. Hotel is so clean, always cleaning , I watched the maids shake out the front door mat every morning from my balcony-nothing is left untouched! Hotel is in a good position for beach, waterpark and shops/restaurant access. Can get tricky at times to get a sunbed at pool but we prefer beach and were always able to get a sunbed when we returned but not always in a great spot .We were in the main building and were not bothered by any noise. Tsilivi is a brilliant family resort and would recommend a levante speedboat trip, horse +cart ride and visit to Zante town too if planning a trip here. Well done Contessina!More

Well what can I say absolutely amazing holiday! We foolishly went for only 1 week, wish we had booked for two. Check in was so smooth and quick. Our hair dryer in the room had broken, the reception provided me with a temporary one until a new permanent one was fixed - was done by the afternoon of our second day! We also had a late flight on our last day so the reception provided us with a store for our suitcases and also whence wanted showers later on in the day provided us with towels and a room. Staff are just amazing here - especially Sot the barman! My only negative would be that our room was right behind the trees so didn't get any sun (room:511).The hotel is in a great location with restaurants/bars all around and the beach only a 2minute walk away. Would definitely recommend this hotel!More
I don't normally write reviews but this hotel was too good not to! I can understand why people go back year after year. The staff are absolutely fantastic. Especially Spiros and Sot behind the bar. Also, the reception staff are wonderful nothing is too much trouble. Thank you all for making our holiday so memorable. The cleaning staff are amazing, they work so hard to keep the hotel so clean and tidy everyday. This hotel definitely deserves another star or 2! We will be back again :) More
