Tara Beach is the most wonderful place to rest and unwind and, in our opinion, it occupies the best location in Skala – just a minute from the beach and a short walk to all the tavernas, bars and shops that the town has to offer. The hotel is family owned and run very efficiently by Yiannis who has now... More

What a place! From the minute you enter you are made to feel special. Yannis knows your name and then remembers it throughout your stay. Our room was small and overlooked the washing but it was spotlessly clean and the team of staff work hard and always time to say hello. Bathroom very dated with avocado suite but come on... More

After asking the Thomson for a move to another hotel a twin room miraculously became available the next day so we moved. Credit to them for moving our belongings. These beds were... More

Stayed in August, first holiday in Cephalonia. Chose Tara beach as it looked nice and friendly and was close to both the beach and centre/restaurants. Wasn't disappointed at all. Yannis greeted us and soon committed our names to memory, never forgot through the holiday and always got a cheerful hello from him. We found all the staff friendly. Breakfasts, as... More
