We stayed there for a few days and loved it. It is very quiet, there are only a few other cabanas and the pool in the middle is lovely and often empty. We were worried about security but there is always someone taking care of the property during the day so no reason to worry. It is clean but very...

35 years ago, when he was just a young surfer and wood carver, my brother, Charlie, met Mario Inowe, proprietor of the Acali. Mario was just building his hotel and Charlie has been coming back to Puerto Escondido all these years. Charlie invited me to come with him this trip to Puerto Escondido and stay at Hotel Acali a beautiful,...

The outside of the cabanas look nice, however don't trust the photos on booking.com I.e. There is no kitchen. There is a gas stove outside on a set of drawers which doesn't really work. One pot, a pan, no knives, forks, spoons, plates etc We arrived and were escorted to one cabana with no privacy whatsoever, so requested to be...

We loved the Acali. The aesthetics created hidden cabins in coconut palm forest. The cabins could be considered "glamping" but for the price the Acali offers more than just self contained cabins. Beautiful pool, helpful staff and a great location. A slice of paradise for sure.

Nice and quiet little cabins with true Mexican flavour Small refrigerator, nice swimming pool and very friendly personnel. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The cabins are rough and give you a true feeling of Mexico.They are across from the beach and many restaurants by the sea. Parking is secure and there is an attendant 24 hrs. It is also pet...

We made a reservation via Booking.com and unfortunately booking gives a price in USD. I like to pay in MXN, so the guy at the reception had to convert the amount. He tried to screw us there, since he converted 16 MXN for 1 USD (the current rate is about 13). After some discussion we settled at 14. Furthermore the...

When we arrived in Puerto Escondido we had just spent about 10 hours sleeping on a bus from Oaxaca, and arrived at 7.30 in the morning at a very tiny bus stop. We asked the taxidriver to take us to the Zicatela beach, which we had read was the prettiest one, and asked if he knew a good hotel. He...

We went to Playa Zicatela after we found out that it is the best one in North America for surfing, and we were not disappointed. I would rather go there than any beach in CA, not to mention that it is probably cheaper. The Acali was small, and cozy. For the price you can't go wrong. The little cabins are...

This is a sweet spot close to the entry road to the "surfer strip" in Puerto Escondido. There are a number of small cabanas around a clean, pleasant pool, but these offer little privacy, are close to the street, and have no view. Ask for one of the cabins up on the hillside. They are quieter, more private, and have...
