We returned for our 3rd visit in September and once again had a fantastic time. I echo everything everyone else is saying about the beautiful location, lovely gardens, pool with easy access for those of us with mobility problems, and of course Yiannis, the Hotel Manager. Always smiling and helpful, no matter what you need, and when I cracked a... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks with my partner and 2 year old in July 2012. Small hotel just what we needed, in the perfect location right on the beach with some really nice traditional taverna's a close walk away. A very peaceful holiday (quiet ) and no childrens activities, but there is a big park nearby. Hotel kept very... More

Stayed at Tara Beach Hotel 18th to 25th Sept 2012 and loved it. Even though its rated a 2-Star this place is worthy of a higher ranking we reckon. The hotel is beautifully clean, comfortable and well-maintained and set in lovely gardens. The manager Yiannis and his staff look after all guests impeccably (how Yiannis remembers everybody's name beats me!)... More

We are a regular visitor to Scala and booked rather at the last minute for the Tara. The location of the hotel is very good, 20 m from the beach 2 mins walk from the town. The gardens and pool are stunning with fruit trees with simply the biggest lemon and limes you are ever likely to see. The rooms... More

We spent a week at the Tara Beach on 7th of August and have to say we were all plesantly supprised.The hotel looked more like a traditional greek styled hotel set in lovely gardens with citrus trees and flowers. There was 7 of us in 3 rooms and the rooms were basic and clean, and maybe the shower area could... More

I have recently spent four weeks at the Tara and as usual everything about the stay was faultless. The pool area and small bar were always kept clean and tidy and ideal for parents to keep an eye on children in the pool. Lauren and Christiana who run the bar were always polite and would do their up-most to ensure... More

Just spent two weeks at Tara Beach. This is a well run hotel with friendly and efficient staff, it is clean and tidy and set in very well kept grounds. Room was clean and tidy with a small balcony with a nice view. The toilet /bathroom was a bit compact and dated but this didn't bother us much. The pool... More

Just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay at Tara Beach. I was with my friend and her 5 year old daughter who had visited the hotel before and spoke highly of it, so I was expecting a nice hotel but all my expectations were well and truly exceeded. The location of the hotel is beautiful, wonderful views onto the... More

We stayed at Tara Beach from 3 – 13 June, this year. It’s taken me until now to post a review as I struggled to find words to describe how much we loved it. We chose it partly because we trusted the very positive reviews on Trip Advisor and partly because we loved the honest simplicity that shone out, in... More
