Me and 10 members of my family stayed May last year for a week and it was so relaxing and the people were very friendly, the cocktails tasted gorgeous and garden looks beautiful. The room was very basic but the view looking out at the beautiful roses was lovely. We enjoyed it so much last year we have booked Tara... More

I went with my family and we all had a lovely time staying at this hotel. The people that work there are very friendly, it is not to load so it was relaxing and the cocktails are gorgeous. But the rooms are very basic but I was mostly by the pool. Booked already for another stay this year.

Hotel very well placed on close to centre of the report and the beach. Lots of good points, I know there's mixed reviews but the room was basic as expected but was... More

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
