Good for a short stay

Posted Jul 12, 2015
We only stayed here one night and then changed hotels. All of the staff were friendly, polite and helpful. Pool bar prices were reasonable! Unfortunately the beds were quite uncomfortable, hair dryer in the room was really weak and the breakfast didnt seem very fresh, like it had been sat there for quite some time! For a short stay, on a budget. The contessa is okay!

Attractive Hotel close to all the amenities

Posted Oct 10, 2013
Pros: Its overall appearance and cleanliness
Cons: The service in the hotel bar, as mentioned above. I am sure that more revenue could be achieved if run properly
Location: Location fine, with lovely views from the fourth floor. Water sports available on the beach. Fair selection of tavernas and shops close by.
The outside area of the hotel is very attractive, with a nice pool area and landscaped gardens. A reasonable selection of snacks and drinks were available from the pool bar which had very pleasant and obliging staff. Rooms, especially those overlooking the pool were more than adequate and of a reasonable size and standard. The breakfast which was included with room charge, was reasonable. The buffet dinner at 10 euros was good value. The hotel bar was disappointing, in that it was very poorly lit and not staffed. Drinks had to be ordered via reception or the pool bar. Overall, for the amount paid, it was good value for money.

We had a wonderful week in this hotel in mid May! The hotel is situated close to all facilities - supermarkets, restaurants, bars etc., and only a short walk from the beach. It is family run, the staff were very helpful and obliging. Our room was large and comfortable with a balcony - even had a sea view but I think not all rooms do. Dinners in the restaurant were not overpriced and were plentiful and varied. We might even return - this is a high recommendation! The only downside was that so many things were charged as extras - key safe, fridge, air conditioning, mattresses for the sun loungers by the pool (very uncomfortable without!).

Good hotel in its range but poor Wifi

Posted Aug 30, 2015
Pros: Good pool area, friendly personnel
Cons: Very lousy Wifi 2€ for a matress for the sunbed is ridiculous
Location: Near the centre and plenty of restaurants around
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 a big minus is the Wifi that is almost always unavailable in the room and around the pool and very unstable in the lobby and even then at low speed. This is not up to standard 2015 and is the main reason I just can not give more that 3/5, Wifi is nowadays a core basic need!

Bell'albergo vicino al mare, ma poca spiaggia

Posted Aug 2, 2015
Pros: La struttura in se, la sua posizione e la sua piscina.
Cons: Secondo noi bisogna assolutamente migliorare l'offerta della colazione.
Location: Ottima posizione centrale, si possono raggiungere delle belle spiagge con dei bus navetta.
Siamo stati dal 19 luglio al 31 luglio 2015 ad Argassi presso l’Hotel Contessa (in 5 persone/2 stanze). La struttura era molto bella con una stupenda vista mare (terrazza ristorante). Peccato la colazione che non era un granché (p.es. non vi era varietà di frutta fresca, mancavano i cornetti! e il personale potrebbe essere un po’ più cordiale…). La piscina era bellissima e il bar di quest’ultima era ben servito da un personale simpaticissimo. Le stanze erano ampie e pulite, unica pecca è che ti consegnano solo una chiave (al momento che esci dalla stanza, il climatizzatore si spegne…). Ci complimentiamo con il personale della reception per la sua disponibilità.
