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

Having booked a twin room we were given a double and a single bed added after complaining. This bed was very hard and uncomfortable and the bathroom shocking. 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

my review of tara beach is a bit of a mixture of the previous two, we had a great holiday but a few small improvements could have made it even better. good points first, the location is brilliant, facing the beach and only a couple of minutes walk to village main st, the ground and gardens of tara beach are...

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

So I have only just joined tripadvisor, with good reason. I have just returned from a two week stay at the Tara Beach, booked through Thomson, and, as the title of my review suggests, I hated every minute I spent in the hotel. I am not a negative person, in fact I will continue on after this review to leave... More

Yet another fantastic holiday in Skala, Yiannis welcomed us as soon as we arrived and remembered all six of us from the previous year. We had requested rooms on the first floor and were not disappointed. We had a lovely holiday and would definitely stay here again! The staff are so great with the kids and are happy to chat... More

Just returned from our third visit to Skala and the Tara Beach hotel and have had a wonderful time. Previously we have been as a couple but this year we brought our 11 year old son for the first time. The reason we return to the hotel is for its position and the setting . The hotel is at the...
