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 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

This was my second visit to Kefalonia, which in itself is a beautiful, friendly island of such diversity and interest. What added to this holiday, above everything else, was the exceptionally warm welcome from the moment you were dropped off to the moment you left. Yiannis and his staff are quite simply amazing. They are not just professional, polite and... More

I visited Tara Beach Hotel with my boyfriend for a week. The hotel is set in beautiful gardens and the pool area is spotless. We had a lovely view from our balcony of the gardens and the sea (Room 8) and although the room could do with an update, it was cleaned daily. The bathroom was the area that could... More

Just returned from a relaxing week at Tara Beach Hotel. Everything was perfect, especially the gardens which had the biggest lemon trees I have ever seen outside of Amalfi.
