Having just returned from a 2 week stay this lovely place deserves a detailed review. Firstly we have to start with a little tip. If you are going to Greece and expect a typical British boutique style hotel, stop. This is Greece. Other hotels, in England, that have been given 4* reviews are being compared to establishments in England. In... More

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Tara beach hotel. We were a party of 6. Two of our party were returning for the 3rd time. We could not praise the hospitality of yiannis, the owner and his fabulous staff highly enough. We have never felt more welcome and looked after. We have stayed in 5... More

My fiance and I stayed at Tara Beach Hotel in July 2016 and we had a fantastic holiday from start to end. We were welcomed upon arrival by the lovely Yiannis who showed us to our spacious room which overlooked the gardens and we settled in straight away. We read some negative comments on here before we went on holiday... More

The hotel is 20m from Skala beach and 200 m from main road with restaurants-ideal location from mine point of view! Rooms are basic, but cleaned every day. Breakfast could be improved. The owners are friendly and helpful.

I spent a week here from 1 September. I was in room 6 which had a lovely view over the pool and the sea and lovely garden. Although the room was a little tired and dated it was clean and bright with a lot of light coming in from the patio. The breakfast offered was cereal, toast and a continental... More

We stayed at this lovely hotel for 2 weeks in August as a family of 4 (2 teenagers). Yiannis and all the staff work so hard to ensure your stay is perfect and as previous reviews have stated, he remembers everyone by name. Breakfast was basic Greek with breads, cheese, ham, tomatoes and jam etc. You can make toast or... More

Visited here with my parter for 2 weeks, this was our second holiday in Skala but our first stay at Tara Beach. The best thing about this hotel is the location, very central close to all bars, tavernas, shops, taxi rank and directly across the road from the beach, all amenities no more than a 5 minute walk. Overall we... More

We had room 7 which faced both the beach and pool area, a supply of soap in the bathroom. Plenty of hangers and storage for your clothes. The maid was in every day and always friendly and smiling. The girls work... More

We stayed for one week in August and the welcome was almost as warm as the weather. Yannis and his staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was large and spotless and the hotel was typically greek which was what we wanted. We only used the pool once as we went to the beach a lot, and the lady... More
