“Great Mediteranean Breakfast Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2011

Me and my friends from Turkey decided to have Greek Islands Trip for two weeks. Santorini , Mykanos , Zakynthos and couple of more islands were in our list. With the recommendation of the locals Zakynthos , we have decided to stay in Contessa . Our first day has started with a delicious Greek breakfast tasting the famous Greek feta and olive oil.The good part of the breakfast is that , they have alternatives for international people with different eating habits including fruits, yogurt, cereal and eggs. The hotel staff was very helpful with guiding the tourists about the events going on in the island.Thanks to them , we didn't have any lost moment because there was always something to do both in the hotel ad the island.The rooms were extremely clean , and pool area was fun as well as safe for our friends with kids.We have decided to extent our trip in Zakynthos due to our good experience there. I strongly recommend Contessa if you are willing to have fun time in a healthy and clean area close to all the attractions in the island

Contessa hotel totally adds to your experience of Zakynthos. The staff are very very friendly and it was the best place to just relax and clam down. The rooms are comfortable and luxurious , great value for money. A must stay.

we stayed at contessa the first week in august with my best friends.from the moment the coach stopped in front of contessa we knew that we would have a great holiday.the hotel looked really nice and cosy.all the staff were really friendly and tried their best to make us feel like home.the roof garden where the breakfast is served as well as dinner with only 9 euro per person(you can eat as much as you want including fruit and sweet)was really delicious.the snack bar at the pool had a lot of different choices and Athina who worked there every morning around 10 had our frappes ready!!! i definitely recommend this hotel for relaxing and enjoyable holiday!!
