Lovely stay, very local you beech just across road. Accommodation simple but enough for holiday purposes. Lovely local town with really nice food and friendly people. Family run business which must parents have been for many years. Very welcoming.

Stayed at Tara Beach for 2 weeks from 6 Sept, first time in Kephalonia - what a beautiful island! We thought the hotel was in the best position in Skala - right across from the beach and a short walk (albeit up a bit of a hill) into town. The hotel gardens are absolutely gorgeous, full of lemon trees and...

We stayed here for 2 weeks in September. The location is beautiful - right opposite the beach and only five minutes from the many good restaurants in Skala. The rooms are set amongst lovely gardens with gorgeous smells of jasmine and tropical flowers. Breakfast is simple Greek style which we enjoyed on the front terrace looking out to sea. Yiannis...

This was our second trip to Scala and our first time at the Tara Beach. We were made to feel very welcome by Yannis, George and Christina and all the staff. From the cleaners to the owners!! The rooms are simple and spotlessly clean, the air con is powerful and there is always plenty of hot water in the shower...

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...

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...

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...
