Contessina Hotel
Ranked #3 of 51 Hotels in Tsilivi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 30, 2013

We have travelled to Greece over the last twenty years visiting various islands, and we can say without a doubt that the Contessina was the best hotel we have ever stayed at.Spotlessly clean, with the rooms being bright and airy and "Boutique" in design. Towels and bed linen were changed on a daily basis. Bathroom was very modern and actually had a shower cubicle so no more paddling around a wet bathroom floor, there was also a hairdryer.

The fridge was by daily hire of three euros per day, with the safety deposit box being four euros fifty cents per day. We didn't need the air conditioning so we are unable to advise the cost of this per day.

Breakfast was again excellent with a choice of hot food i.e. eggs/bacon/sausage/beans etc., plus the usual Continental style breakfast, plus fresh fruit and yogurt and various types of bread.

Try eating a lunch at the pool bar, really good choice and all at very reasonable prices, you are looked after by a really friendly, happy, member of staff. Plus the pool is great with ample sun beds for everyone

We cannot thank the staff at the Contessina enough for making our holiday one of the best,
they were brilliant.

You will note that we have given the Sleep Quality as poor, this is purely that our room was situated on the fourth floor in block number three, (room keys starting with 700) beautiful outlook of the sea to the left and olive groves with chickens directly ahead, with the main road to the right. At night it was a nightmare with the Molly Malone pub on the main road. Unfortunately as there were no buildings to protect us from the noise as per the lower floors had, we got a disco all of our own on the our balcony each night which normally went on until 1- 2.00am. Even with the screen and main balcony door closed it wasn't sufficient to keep the noise out.

We would have no hesitation in highly recommending this hotel, and would certainly go back, but to a room overlooking the pool.

Thank you again to all the members of staff at the Contessina you are good a brilliant job to ensure your guests enjoy their stay.

Room Tip: Front of the fourth floor is O.K but the rear rooms are subject to Disco noise

After deciding to get married in Zante we checked on Trip advisor and decided to book the Contessina as it had such fantastic reviews. From the moment we arrived we were not disappointed! As our rooms were not ready when we arrived (which is understandable from the early time we got there) the reception staff asked us to take a seat in their grand and comfortable seating area, we were also given welcome drinks which was a nice touch. We didn't have to wait that long and we were soon in our lovely room which overlooked the back of the hotel. The whole hotel is decorated to a very high standard and is modern yet classy. Ideal location - short walk to the beach, plenty of shops, bars and restaurants nearby. The breakfast was delicious and there was a large range of items to choose including, cereals, tea, coffee, juice, water, pastries, toast, sliced meats, cheeses, fruit, yogurt, cake and also the usual cooked breakfast. We also ate some days at the pool bar which was also lovely, reasonably priced food. I cant praise the staff enough, they couldn't do enough for you and were so accommodating and friendly! The rooms were cleaned daily to a very high standard and the towels were also changed daily. When we return to Tsilivi (hopefully sometime soon) we will only stay at this hotel!!! Fantastic :)

I was impressed by the hotel immediately that I walked in. The reception area was spacious, the staff very friendly and helpful. I was given all of my passes, keys etc and advised of my room details. The lift was very large so easily able to take my suitcases. Upon entering the room I was surprised by how light, airy and spacious it was. The room was kept spotlessly clean, it was like a home away from home. The only little niggle was that the warm breakfast could sometimes be lukewarm, but there was plenty of it and the cold breakfast (continental style) excellent.

A truly fantastic hotel !! We have just come back from 11 nights at the contessina with our 9 month old baby and we have loved every minute, the facilities are fantastic !! The staff cannot do enough for you the receptionists and bar staff were very helpful, always happy when we asked to warm our babies food up or sterilise the babies bottles. They did this everyday without hessitation (probably glad to see the back of us now) haha!!! But these little things made our holiday. Will certainly be going back soon.

This hotel is fantastic.....fact.

I stayed here with my family for two weeks between 5-19 September as I was getting married at a hotel nearby. Upon arriving at the hotel the staff were very welcoming (Marietta and Spiros) and we were booked in without delay. The rooms were very clean and overlooked the pool (208). It was my sisters birthday when we were there and the staff surprised her with a cake, which was lovely, wine and a card. Throughout our stay there nothing was too much trouble for them and they were always willing to go that extra mile to help us out. I cannot find fault with either the staff or the hotel.

The hotel is well located near to restaurants and bars. My family consists of a 3 year old and a 9 month old baby and although you can hear some noise from the bars nearby they both slept like logs every night!

The hotel does have free wi-fi but you can only really pick it up in reception. Although it was no big deal as the reception has a massage chair.......highly recommended!

If you're thinking of staying in Zante then I recommend this hotel.
