“The Hotel that Excels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

This will have been our 7th stay at the Contessina and as always the staff were fantastic.
The rooms were spotlessly clean as were the breakfast,bar and pool area.
Well located with regards to restaurants,supermarkets and shops.
Would highly recommend the Contessina to anyone.

Room Tip: Any room overlooking the pool

This was our first stay in Stivili and the Contessina hotel and what a lovely experience it was. My wife and I stayed for two weeks from the last week in September and the weather was great except for one thunderstorm through the night and one afternoon with heavy shower for about an hour, the rest of the time it was sunshine.
The hotel has to be one of the friendliest, cleanest hotels we have had the pleasure of staying in, the staff right throughout the hotel were very polite, friendly and always ready to help, special mention has to go to the pool bar staff Sot and Christina who always made time for you although the were mainly busy.
My wife and I don't normally go back to the same place on holiday but we shall be back to the Contessina at some point in the future.
May we take this opportunity to thank all the staff for a lovely holiday.

Stayed again at the wonderful Contessina from the 29th Sept for 11 days. Hotel still up to excellent standards. Mostly the same staff, some new but they are wonderful and so helpful. Some of the restaurants were closing towards the end of the 1st week in October....but saying that, most of them said it but didn't in the end. There was some rain, which can be expected but more this year unfortunately then previous years, but still had a brill holiday. Go and enjoy if you are planning on booking the Contessina Hotel...we have already for next September/October for 2 weeks and can't wait.

Stayed at this lovely hotel from the 3rd - 10th October, sadly the weather was not kind to us and I would not advise people to travel to Zante at this time of year as they are prone to rain out of our 7 days we had 2.5 days sun !! The resort, shops & hotels are starting to close the hotel in fact closes on the 17th Oct.

Everything about this hotel is as previous reviews have said, modern, clean hotel with friendly hard working staff. Breakfast is adequate cereal, toast, hot foods, fruit, yoghurts with ample tea & coffee facilities.

Would stay here again if in Tsillivi.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

We've not long been back from the Contessina in Tsilivi. Overall the standard of accommodation was pretty good. We got to see two rooms, one in the left hand building as you face the pool from the bar area and the rear building. I would say the left hand building has been furbished to a slightly higher standard, although the rear building was certainly not a disgrace by any means. The only issue I had was with the shower in the rear block, which was tiny. I'm a fairly large fella, and I had to enter the shower sideways on due to the size of my shoulders. I'd imagine some larger guests could find the size of it a real problem.

The Staff were outstanding and the time we had a problem with some guests they did everything they could to resolve the issue to our satisfaction. The lack of a Excellent from us comes from the breakfast choice, which was poor and what was available was cold. We ate there the first morning and everyday after that we went to cafes and bars.

I'd recommend the hotel to anyone, it is nice to have a real hotel to use for relaxation rather than traditionally basic Greek island dwellings.

Room Tip: Asking for the main block helps to minimise the risk of being disturbed by the noise from the bar la...

We were given a warm welcome at this lovely hotel, with fresh orange on arrival , the staff were friendly and helpful and we had a lovely pool view. The pool area is well maintained and very clean. Our room was nicely decorated and modern with comfortable beds and extra decent pillows if you needed them, we also had a powerful shower in the bathroom, which was nicely tiled and very clean. Whilst here I celebrated my birthday, when we got back to our room after a day out, I was greeted with balloons. a bottle of wine plus 2 glasses and a lovely card from the hotel staff, what a nice gesture. The resort was quiet, but relaxing. The hotel is in a great position close to the beach and eating places. The hotel is one I would recommend to family and friends for its friendliness and cleanliness and we will return here sometime in the future.Thanks to all the Management and staff for all their hard work at keeping standards high at this gem of a hotel.

Room Tip: We had room 607 which has a window in the bathroom this has its advantages for natural light it also...
