“Average hotel, worse than average food!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

Not that you have a ton of options when staying and passing thru in Tehuantepec... The hotel itself is ok, not very glamorous or recently updated, but "itldo" kind of place... The rooms are ok, the bathroom clean and you get hot water and wifi. The pool is nice and there is ample parking outside if you are travelling by car like we are... This said, the hotel is very much passable but the food is about as bad as you can get. Forget north american dishes, stick to anything that sounds spanish or mexican and you should be rewarded... Order a caesar salad and a steak and prepare for utter disappointment! Lastly, we bargained down the price just by asking, worth a shot... Hope this review was helpful!!!

The Hotel Calli is set in pleasant grounds full of trees and bird life. The grounds include a small swimming pool which is pleasant to take a dip in, you can collect a generous amount of towels from reception. Be aware of walking around the grounds at dusk as there is a lot of grass that contains insects that will bite you around the ankles. Long trousers or repellent easily puts them off though. The rooms are basic but comfortable, mine was at ground level with a small balcony, had a window that opened to let in a breeze and a small sized bathroom with a good shower. The fixtures and fittings were dated but all functioning including a TV, free Wifi and air conditioning, hairdryer but there was no safe or iron. Dinner is available in the hotel, the food is basic but well cooked, including Mexican and International food. They offer various dishes of the day including fish, seafood and meat. The service is slow but friendly. Breakfast is basic and buffet style with the usual range of fruit, hot and cold choices and toast/pastries. Most of the guests in the hotel seemed to be international and Mexican tourists on tours who have little choice but to stay at the Hotel Calli as it is the only viable option to stay in a decent hotel if driving from Oaxaca, the next best hotel for such needs is located four hours drive further on in Tuxtla Gutierrez. Although basic the Hotel Calli is comfortable and fine for a short stay.

We travelled belonging to a group of 30 grown-up Scandinavian tourists. There seemed to overnight some other groups on the way up or down. Very few individual tourists were at present. There are not many other options to overnight in Tehuantepec. As there is limited competition, the standards are not put on a high level.
The hotel is aside from the centrum. It does not matter if you are staying here only one night. The hotel area is huge, lot of space around. It looks like Butlins Holiday Camps in England during the 60´s. The whole compound is a little bit old-fashioned. The swimming pool seems to be a little bit dirty from time to time. This time we did not want to go to swim. There is no effective purification systems. But the staff seems to try to keep the pool and the huge green lawn area in some kind of condition.
The maintenance is not very effective. We renewed 3 burnout bulbs in our room. Ask spare bulbs and other missing items from the reception. The room was clean, simple and light enough. The dining hall looked like a refectory of a factory or warehouse. The breakfast was served to tables and it was very modest like in Mexico in common.
With a little effort this hotel could easily lift its level. But why to do so, if there is no need to improve before "manana"...

Room Tip: Rooms to the pool area is a good choice.

We stayed for a night in a nice, clean room with a small balcony overlooking the swimming pool. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Air conditioning worked great. There was hot water in shower. Breakfast was standard Mexican breakfast. Overall a comfortable stay.

This is a very simple hotel but good for just one night stopover. Diner was nice and tasty but the restaurant looks like a refectory of a factory. Rooms were equally simple but clean. Did not have breakfast but we received a picnic breakfast.

A simple hotel. The rooms are simpel, clean?? Not so much! Breakfast is simple. We have spent some time at the pool but not dare to use it. In this region there is not much choice for hotels. The next time we will not stay here and look for a other place to stay.

Big hotel, large rooms with air con- bit noisy. If you get a chance visit the town. Pool looks nice so expect people with not much on walking through reception. Compared to the last hotel in Oaxaca this is much better. But bit of noise at 5.30 from someone having a disco can put you off
