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 five-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.
We look for bars, restaurants and shops in our holidays and this is just what we got. The contessina is right next to everything you need!
The team there are wonderful and welcoming. The bartender Sotty made our holiday with his recommendations and hospitality. More

Its like coming to visit friends
I love this hotel, 2nd time to return this year. I know there are others who keep coming back and we all know why. Quite simply, its tourism done well. Excellent customer service from staff who actually care about you. The Staff at the Contessina are what make this place what it is and I truly hope that the owners / management recognise this. The hotel is really nicely fitted out, great rooms and so clean, but above all its the staff. I cried when we left as it was like saying goodbye to close friends. I wish you all a wonderful Winter break and hope to see you all next year.
Only one downside - Showers could be bigger in size and we had the curtain that makes love to you as you shower but it isn't a deal breaker. Still love the hotel and everyone in it.
Big love to you all especially, Sot, Nikos, Elena, Marietta and Ronnie - Efharisto XXXMore

Would recommend this hotel to anyone. It is spotlessly clean and the staff work hard to both keep all areas clean and keep their customers happy. I think we met nearly all staff and all display excellent customer service, except Helen who is the assistant manager-she is obnoxiously rude to customers. A special thanks to Sot for his friendliness and fab drinks! Nikos, night staff, was really helpful as was Ronnie who helped to fix my hair straightener!!
Our only minor gripe was about Helen-when we checked in we were asked to stay in our room for one night and then to move the following night-we obliged, but Helen treated us like the hotel was doing us a favour by giving us a room in the first place. Hotel Contessina, please address this member of staff & this reservations problem for next year-I would hate to see other customers endure this treatment on holidays...
I liked the fact that this hotel wasn't "all inclusive", so please maintain that!More
