Our first time at Contessa Hotel, from the great reviews we had read prior to arrival we had high expectations and I must say they were exceeded. Communication via email to the hotel prior to arrival was fantastic, they were incredibly responsive and patient to my email queries

We spent 7 nights and we liked the hotel. We recommend it. Plus: - Decent size of the room, clean room and very good service - Very big pool (we did not use it as we went there to enjoy the sea not the hotel pool) - Very big and nice restaurant on the top of the hotel

most of the pool area has sun at some point in the day. There are trees and umbrella's if you want shade, but you have to be up early to gain the best spots. There does seem to be plenty of sunbeds for all the guests, but the hotel charges 2 euros for the mattress, per bed per day. At first I thought this was a bit extreme, but they do make the sunbeds very comfy if your planning a day by the pool. Just like to add, Spiros and Elle at the pool bar are lovely, and will make your stay a happy one.

Yes. There was one if you turned right when you got to the main street, at about 500 meters. There were theme nights. We saw some guy that was pretending to be Michael Jackson.
