I would describe Tara beach as a Traditional well Kept hotel with lovely owners and staff. We Couldn't have ever wished for a better room with two balconies and fantastic sea views. Rooms were cleaned daily and to a good standard, fridge in the room a bonus to keep little snacks and drinks. The hotel has a fantastic swimming pool... More

We chose Tara beach because of its location despite the poor reviews on the breakfast, thinking it really could not be that bad, WRONG ! breakfast is rubbish except for the Greek yogurt and honey. Come on Yiannis, 1 euro for a boiled egg is insulting to us, your customers, and you should be embarrassed to impose such a outrageous... More

We really enjoyed our simple stay at this hotel - go there expecting basic greek standards! The grounds are beautiful. The rooms are very basic including the bathrooms. The breakfast is not worth getting out of bed for. But, saying all that - we got a last minute bargain and for what we paid we really enjoyed out stay. However,... More

We stayed at the tara beach at the end of Sept 2013. The weather was good, the staff who run the hotel are very friendly and helpful, but the hotel is starting to show its age (it was one of the first to be built in the 80's). Avoid the Thompson 'Idylic Ithica' 65 euro tour - you can get... More

I think my review will upset some people as I researched the Hotel before I travelled, but here goes; It was my first trip to Cephalonia, having travelled extensively throughout the Greek Islands it has long been on my to-do list. Knowing that the island has a permanent residence of around 500 people I was expecting 'Greece'. Unfortunately, it shows.... More

First time for us in Kefaliona and the beautiful resort of Skala. I emailed ahead to Tara Beach requesting a ground floor room for my parents and they couldn't of been more helpful. Rooms are clean but basic, shower is the best one we have encounted in Greece! Clean towels and linen provided every three days, Air-con was a must... More
