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.

Our 2 week stay was amazing. The pool area was clean and safe. The bedroom I stayed in was outstanding and could not have been faulted. Our bedroom was huge and our bathroom was also very large. This was perfect for 2 arguing sisters. The air conditioning was fab, 1 problem and was resolved straight away. The staff were amazing very chatty and happy to help. Local bars, resturants, beaches and shops very close. Lovely walks and trips. We went on the most amazing boat trip to turtle beach, banana beach and the caves. This trip is well worth it, you leave around 1pm and arrive back 6-7pm. All staff aboard are amazing the trip is called ZanteLavante, captain Sprious made my day. Way back he goes VERY fast, you get the wettest at the back just to warn you. The food during our stay was also outstanding at the contessina, breakfast was great and the lunch menu was great too. ONly a 7 minute walk to the water park. Reception call cabs for you etc. Drinks on arrival... WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR!!!??? Thank you to everyone at the ContessinaMore

Very clean very friendly hotel
When you visit this hotel you'll realise immediately how special it is, spotlessly clean and well set out, the rooms are everything that could be asked of a hotel room and are kept clean by fantastic staff everyday. The pool is a reasonable size and enjoys the sun all day long until early evening, the buffet breakfast is also very good with a rotating selection off cooked foods everyday plus a continental selection too. If you want a sunbed be up early though, residents are like a wolf pack at 08:00 reserving them this is the only downside. Aircon is a must which costs â¬7 a day (2014), which is included if you book direct through contessinahotel.com. Our family will be back next year for our third stay within Tslivi which is a great family resort. Super sunny Zante see you in 2015.More

3rd visit,lovely hotel.
Fantastic hotel,great location.Staff are very friendly,this was our third stay at the Contessina and had a fantastic view from our balcony in room 704 of the sea.All the rooms are well decorated and clean.only down side is that in our first week all the sun beds had towels on them before 07.40 in the morning,but after a few complaints the staff did stop people reserving beds before 08.00.Will defiantly stay there again.More
