First of all ignore all the bad reviews. This place is basic yes but if you want more upmarket there are plenty up the road. The staff are fantastic and go out of their way for you. Yannis is so friendly and george who works at the bar is the friendlliest. If you have kids i would not recommend this...

Yiannis and his staff were very welcoming for our two week stay at the Tara Beach. Just across the road from the beach and the sunbeds and a few minutes from the shops and tavernas of Skala, this is an ideal and relaxing location. The hotel is set in lovely gardens. The bedrooms are built as two blocks, rising through...

We have just visited the tara beach hotel, and although we never usually write reviews, i felt i had to tell others about this gem of a hotel in a beautiful resort. Firstly the people we encountered working within the hotel were lovely, with much credit going to Yhannis and George. Yhannis and George were really personable, and couldn't do...

Tara beach is in a great location only a stones throw away from the beach ! We returned from Tara beach yesterday morning, and yes the hotel rooms are a little bit dated but really that's why they named Greece Simply Greece ! The beds were comfy, clean and fresh, the paintwork a tad tiered along with the furniture !...

Would love to say that this hotel was perfect. The owners and staff are wonderful and completely without fault but regrettably the rooms are very tired and have a number of issues as well as desperately needing to be brought up to a better standard. I understand that it is not one of the most expensive hotels in Skala but...

The Tara beach is the most friendliest hotel I have stayed in and that is just the staff. The location is the best in skala right on the beach and nearest hotel to the restaurants and shops. Gorgeous floral gardens surround the hotel that I didn't see at any other hotel. Pool is big enough. Always clean, kids enjoyed it....
