We stayed here as a couple for a week in September. Hotel was one of the best we have stayed in in Zante. We booked through Thomson but after reading tips on here we upgraded direct with the hotel for 5 euro a night to get a pool view room - which was well worth it! The hotel is clean,...

Just returned from our week long holiday in Zante, staying at The Contessa Hotel in Argassi (first time without 'the kids'). So pleased we chose to stay here because it lived up to its expectations. So many reviews have said how friendly the staff are and how clean the hotel is and they are so right! Every single person working...

This was our 2nd visit to this wonderful hotel, once again it did not disappoint, we took a couple of friends with us this year and they too enjoyed their stay and cannot wait to return! Always clean and comfortable with a family friendly atmosphere, many people we met this time had visited before which says a lot about the...

First of all, mind that this hotel is located in Argassi, which does not have a beach. Ok, it says it has one, but trust me, it is not the beach you are looking for in Greece. So as long as you are comfortable with this, Argassi it's a nice resort. It definitely has some of the best tavernas (check...

Contessa hotel is a family friendly hotel with good facilities and very friendly staff. There's plenty of nice bars and restaurants nearby and it's close to Zakinthos town too. We spent plenty of time by the pool and at the pool bar. The bartender, Dennis was really nice and friendly and looked after us the whole time. The only drawback...

The hotel is clean and tidy, the staff very friendly. Prices are affordable. Minus is that there is no free wifi, additional payment is required for air-conditioning, fridge .... Near the hotel all beaches are desperate

Just returned home after a fantastic 2 week stay here! The hotel was spotless - really happy with our pool view room - even if there was music outside at the pool bar we couldn't hear it with the door closed. Other people have mentioned the bathroom being small but it didn't bother us as we don't go on holiday...

We had a wonderful holiday in the last two weeks of August in Zakynthos. Best of all was our decision to stay at the Contessa Hotel. It is not a grand hotel and is rated as 3 stars, but I have stayed in many 4 star hotels and found them to be inferior. Everything you need for a great stay...

Normal rooms are clean, little old, but good enough to not being disturbing. Friendly staff, very good pool and childrens pool with enough sun beds and shade. Ok midday snacks at the pool side, reasanable cockails at good price 4€. Breakfast is extensive but gets boring since it is the same every other day. Overall a very good hotel but...
