I recently stayed at the Tara beach hotel with my friend and we had a lovely relaxing stay . The hotel grounds and gardens are beautiful and very well kept,the rooms are spotless and tended to every day,which I wasn't expecting ! The location is perfect as the beach is across the road and it's a short stroll to skala...

A great family run hotel which was extremely friendly. Close to all amenities but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. Beach just across a quiet road and loads of very good restaurants and bars only 50 metres away. Facilities more than adequate and water always hot and plentiful. Would certainly return.

A relaxing week spent at the Tara Beach. The rooms are dated, but kept spotlessly clean with a powerful shower and plenty of hot water. There is a bar for drinks and snacks and light meals. The location is perfect, a few steps from a long stretch of beach with plenty of sun beds and parasols. 7 Euros for 2...

Decided last year to stray away from Tara.. Big mistake.. The beauty of skala you can't find anywhere else.. And the placement of the hotel is absolutely perfect for the resort centre.. I've written a lot about this hotel and my opinion hasn't changed. The welcome you receive is beyond any other I have experienced in my travels. Yiannis always...

stayed there last year and could not fault the service or the location . Sure its a bit tired in places and could do with a splash of paint, but for us it was simply a place to sleep in , drink in , have a lunch time snack if we were around the pool and use as a base...

It's a good place, but not somewhere to go if your looking for something special. Would suit small families or couples seeking a quiet holiday. Nice place to use as base if you want to hire a car and explore the island

We stayed there for two weeks last September. It's perfectly located close to beach and the sea. It takes only few minutes to get to the main street of Skala with many tavernas and shops. Rooms are rather small but tidy. Mayby some of them should renovated but it's OK for those who come to Cephalonia to see the island...

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...
