Rooms are old and durty, security sucks!, personal lie to you they tell you one thing and is another, worst place I ever been to. My car was hit from behind and nobody new anything about it even though they have a security guard at the entrance, this hotel looks like a scary gost town. Never coming back.

SAME JOINT. don't look for it in Ensenada - you won't find it. lots of history, lots of great views, lots of delicious foods... check the other review... More

Three of us stayed at Califia on Friday, 18 July. A spur of the moment trip. I had been there many years ago and heard that it was reopened. Friendly staff...gratis margaritas were nice, too. The room was very reasonable and clean, although we could see that the hotel still has a number of maintenance issues. A door knob on... More

If you are looking for high-vibrated places to rest your mind, soul and body, this is it. The energy of this place is undescribable. No wonder they say Carl Sagan and others like him used to stay here... Do expect a place rebuildung itself (place is presently under renovation). But in my view, you simply can't be at a better...

Took a quick trip to Baja and stayed one night at Califia. Our room was very clean and we had an ocean view for under $60. Very quiet and relaxing. Jesus the desk clerk is very friendly and can answer all you questions about the area. Can't wait to go back!!

So we attended a wedding the weekend of 7/23/2011 that was held in the courtyard overlooking the ocean. We drove from San Diego, the drive was nice and there was some road work happening on the drive down. The exit for getting to Calafia was covered in pot holes (much like the entire place) and needed some major work. You... More

After making reservations, we called their office located off site in the USA to cancel, but were told we could not cancel reservations. When we called the credit card company, they said the room fee had already been processed, even though we check in wasn't for 2 more weeks! So we stayed overnight after all for a wedding at the...

Stayed at Califia for a wedding, beware! Flithy rooms, holes in walls, unpainted patches,dirty bedding, no hot water at all certain hours. Desk clerk tried to change my pre reserved rate to a higher amount. It looks nothing like the web site!
