Spent a wonderful 2 weeks holiday at the end of June. Met on arrival by Yiannis and his staff who were excellent in every department. We had a garden view room which was very comfortable, only downside being the shower was a bit small but always had plentiful supply of boiling hot water. Nice pool and pool bar serving snacks...

Situated over the road from the beach, with restaurants, pubs and shops a five minute walk away. Yanis and all his staff, very friendly, and all approachable and helpful, nothing a bother, especially the person we got to know most, Christina. Very clean but bathroom dated in need of a little tlc, and a need for a bit of lenor... More

The hotel was situated perfectly for our needs (a couple); across the road from the beach and a very short stroll around the corner to the main street with its shops, bars and restaurants. The rooms were of a reasonable size and kept very clean. We had a wonderful view of the gardens and a side view of the sea.... More

Just returned from a very hot week in Skala at the Tara Beach. Not really a lot more to add to the other very good reviews. In summary - fantastic location opposite the beach and less than 5 minutes walk to Skala main street with its great selection of Taverna's. Very clean hotel complex and pool area. Very friendly and... More

My wife and I visited the Tara Beach at the beginning of September.I am not normally the sort of person to write reviews but when you leave Kefalonia with such a warm feeling in your heart then you feel compelled to make a comment.I believe the Tara Beach is probably Scala's oldest hotel. That is reflected in the feeling that... More

Spent two weeks at the beginning of September at the Tara Beach hotel in Skala. Staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfasts could do with a little variety and the rooms could do with a spruce up but our overall experience was great. Very conveniently situated for the village and plenty of restaurants and supermarkets. South... More

The hotel is fairly basic, but don't let that out people off. The owner Yannis and his staff are the nicest people who will do everything to make your stay wonderful. My friend and I found that because the hotel was small the other people staying there were friendly. Snacks available all day until 6 pm at the hotel. breakfast... More

If you want traditional Greek with a homely feel, this is the hotel for you. The hotel situation just across from the beach is perfect and there's nothing better than having a drink from the bar looking at the view and watching the world go by. All the staff are friendly and welcome you back as one of the family.... More
