We stayed at Mustaphas Place for 10 nights over Christmas and New Year. It was the perfect place for us (a family with 3 couples). The rooms with fans were ok, what we expected and since we only spend time there to sleep they were sufficient. We enjoyed the good food (which is actually cheaper than in the other restaurants along the beach) and the super friendly and helpful staff. Every request we had was fulfilled. It was really good value for the price (we paid 35 USD for a double room without bathroom and although it was high season the prices were not increased). Mustaphas place is 50m away from the beach which did not bother us because we simply took our sun shade when high tide was coming and went into the direction of Paje and set the sun shade up whereever we wanted. When it was low tide we spend time on the very nice compound of Mustaphas Place, enjoyed fresh fruit juices in the shade and played cards. If you are not looking for a luxurious hotel, but for a friedly place with very nice and helpful people and if you are considering your budget, Mustaphas Place is the perfect choice! We recommend it and would come back!
