“omalos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Was on a self guided walking holiday with headwater. Hotel was chosen for us. It was what we expected, small, clean and comfortable. We had no choice of meal but it was delicious. Breakfast wasn't great but no worse than other places on Crete. Had a good packed lunch. Transfers to the gorge was fine and our luggage arrived at our next hotel a day late as the boats were not running but they had informed us of this. If you want posh avoid. If you want a simple friendly place to stay before the Samaria gorge, its great

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

The hotel was made in 80s and has not changed since then. Our bathroom was literally breaking down (no lights!). The restaurant is poor offering frozen mills. No hospitality with raki and fruits, forget it. It s not a place that offers anything for free. I explicitly asked if the breakfast was included in the price. It appeared to be not, although i was told the contrary. And the final touch - a laugh in your face when you ask the receipt. If i could recommend, sleep in Lakki - truly beautiful place 10 min away. Omalos is grey and dull. No advantage over Lakki in starting the gorge walk early.

Me and my friend were on a mission to visit the Somaria Gorge. We setted of from Malia (terrible place: for drunks and clubbers). We hired a 4x4 and made our way to Somaria; unfortunately when we got there the gorge was closed and was due to re-open the next day (Saturday 7am). We were dissappointed, but then decided to stay at a hotel in Omalos. There were three hotels to choose from, but I can definitely say Exari Hotel was the best in terms of rate, people, condition of room etc, and we do not regret staying there. The following day (6.30 am) the lady served us and the other customers breakfast (it was a huge breakfast) and she only charged 5 euros. Would highly recommend this place. Area is very quiet and isolated, but you will definitely see other tourist staying so nothing to be worried about.
