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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
