We had an amazing trip at Mustapha's place. The staff was amazing! They were very kind and helpful. They brought us to a beach party and drove us to Stone Town at a more than reasonable price. The food is beyond good--some of the best seafood I've ever had. The accommodation itself was beautiful and the beds were SO comfortable.... More

The best thing about this place is the funky layout and design - plenty of places to relax in major comfort, like hammocks and cushy couches - and all kinds of different species of trees scattered throughout, providing beauty and much-needed shade. Music played in the common area most of the time, but it was not at all overpowering, which... More

We went to Mustapha's a couple of times and always returned because the food was excellent. A great choice and every dish we tried was very good. The restaurand has a lovely decoration with flowers and candles and a good atmosphere with music in the backgroud. In the evening they prepare a nice bonfire to sit around and enjoy the... More

Stayed at Mustapha's for 3 days. The rooms, staff, food, and general layout of the accommodation are really nice. The atmosphere here is super relaxed with a chilled reggae vibe. This place is a little piece of paradise in Bwejuu. Worth a visit.

I spent almost three weeks at Mustapha's Place. It's the perfect place to stay when you are at the east coast of Zanzibar. You'll feel home in paradise. The staff is more than friendly and helpful. Food is simply amazing and incredible tasty. The rooms are very nice and each one is individual and lovely decorated. Back in the european... More

This is a great place if you're looking to stay in Zanzibar on a budget and in a very relaxed atmosphere. To start, if you're looking for excessive luxury, this is not the place. The rooms are basic but the beds are very comfortable and the bathroom has everything you need. No hot water, but honestly there wasn't a single... More

We stayed here for 1 week and it was a nice change from busy stonetown. Situated close to the beach and 20 minute walk along the beach to paje. The homeowners door also has a pool you can use for a small fee. Our room was OK, clean but very hot with only 1 standing fan to cool the room,... More
