“Fantastic hotel in the heart of Tsilivi”
Reviewed 15 November 2012

I stayed here in September with my boyfriend and what a pleasant stay we had! We arrived to a glass of orange juice and a lovely smile from the receptionist and after feeling tired from an early morning flight was brilliant to receive this sort of service. Even as a Thomson Travel Agent myself (which I didn't tell them) I received high amounts of service from the rep and staff and would definitely visit here again. It is very central for eating out and the main strip is simply a short stroll away which was great. Went to the jolly Rodger a few days for lunch and loved costas and the family who ran this and also would recommend the wine and roses and il gusto. The beach in Tsilivi wasn't brilliant so if your looking for a beach based holiday would defo recommend laganas side of the island. Rooms were to a very high standard and bathrooms were lovely, and as was my boyfriends birthday they even put a bottle of wine in the room with a card and some balloons which was lovely! Would definitely recommend staying here!

It really is as good as people say. We stayed for 14 nights from 9th October to 23rd October and loved it. The only slight niggle is that sometimes there are flies in the dining room but that is not enough for me to downgrade the place.
We hired a car from Euro Alfa which for a week cost 213 Euros. It was fine. Away from the main tourist areas, all road signs are in Greek and they are not numbered. Try to learn the Greek alphabet; it is not too difficult and it will make navigating the maze of roads a little easier.
We had 14 evening meals out and never had a bad one. If pushed I would suggest that Giorgios is the best but only by a small margin because they were all so good.

Do take plenty of insect repellent and on arrival, buy a can of fly killer. When leaving the room in the morning and evening, spray the room.

We went to this hotel for the first time 2nd oct to 12th oct. The pool and surrounding areas were cleaned everyday even at this quieter time of the season!. The staff were lovely anything you asked they would help you with.The breakfast varied eachday and was very good.The maid sevice was brilliant lovely smiley faces when ever you saw them even though they had long days good on you ladys for all your hard work! We met quite a few couples there who had been back year after year infact one couple were busy booking next year whilst sat around the pool that says it all. Lots of places to eat or just have a drink to the left and right as you come out of the hotel dont be afraid to explore and find the friendly locals.If you choose to stay at the contessina you will not be dissapointed.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 705 lovely high room compared to others made it feel spacious also we had the sun...

A little oasis of heaven....what a gorgeous hotel! Beautiful decor, spotlessly clean and right where all the action is. The staff were wonderful...a shout out to Sophie the barmaid....nothing was too much trouble for any of them. Maid service every day, loads of sunbeds and 24 hr reception...why this is a 3 star I do not know. A very stylish and welcoming hotel indeed. If I could have a wish list, it would be to make the air con free, extra English speaking channels on the TV, and bacon every day instead of every few days, but those things were not the end of the world. We love Tsilivi, and have been 4 years on the trot. Would go back to this hotel like a shot. Very highly recommended.
