We just returned yesterday from a lovely family holiday at the Tara Beach Hotel. The location is perfect, right opposite the beach and just a few minutes walk away from the main street where the shops and restaurants are. The beach is shingly but that didn't bother us. Some days we stayed there all day, other days were spent by... More

This was our second visit to Kefalonia and also our second time in Skala. Last time we travelled in mid-May and only stayed for a week, but we enjoyed the holiday so much we decided to come back a couple of years later for a longer stay in June. Kefalonia really suits us as it's a beautiful unspoilt island with... More

Just got back today from a wonderfully relaxing holiday at the Tara beach hotel and wishing I was still there! I went with my partner and would highly recommend this hotel for your break away. Perfect for families or couples alike, this family run friendly hotel is ideally located on the beach front. Yannis, the manager is a great guy... More

We first came here in 2010, as a couple. This year we came as an extended family of 8, including 2 young children. Everything about the holiday was first class. Totally stress free and each one of us had a wonderful time. The hotel and gardens are superb, Yannis, a young, very professional proprietor, with a wonderful calmness about him,... More

We had a lovely 2 weeks stay at Tara Beach. In the most perfect location close (but not too close!) to everything you need in Skala. Yannis was wonderful, helping us to organise anything we needed. He met us as we arrived and saw us off on the coach when we left. Nothing was too much trouble for him or... More

I can't put into words how much we love Tara Beach. There is something magical about the place.. from the moment we arrived it was like being "home" it was our 2nd year and we were welcomed as friends, so special. Yannis, his parents, George and Cristina they are all such wonderful people and make sure everything is just perfect.... More

Stayed at this hotel previously and nothing has changed. If you are looking for luxury look elsewhere but if you want a basic very clean hotel set in lovely gardens in the perfect location look no further. Yannis meets you on arrival and waves you off at the end of your holiday a nice touch and with his prodigious memory... More

Have just returned from the 2nd visit of the year to Tara Beach. I travelled with my 8 year old daughter earlier this year and we liked it so much we went back. Cannot praise the hotel and staff highly enough. The rooms are kept immaculately clean, the gardens are fantastically tended. Surprised people complain about the Greek Continental Breakfast?... More
