We came the second time and stayed for 4 nights. It was great again. The staff is friendly and the breakfast nice. The kids enjoyed the pool. The place is like small green paradise with all the plants and beautiful with all its small houses and huts. You can walk barefoot on the sandy paths all the time. A unique place with a special atmosphere, very kids and family friendly.

This is the most disappointing reservation... When we arrived to this scruffy overgrown place we had a shock...but I'm sure it would have suited Bob Marley & The Wailers in their early years to smoke a joint or two... The rooms were small dark and no AC. They advertise themselfs as being on beachfront, that is a lie...the beach is not even visible ... not at the beach..not child friendly and no AC.. being eco friendly does not mean scruffy...this is scruffy...

We booked in good faith due to photos and rewievs. The place is scruffy, not near the beach as we were lead to believe due to photos. Bungalows small and humid, no AC. We decided not to stay, the owner (italian lady) denied cancelling so we had to freeze card and go through the bank!

We stayed at Mustapha's Place for ten days and we didn't want to leave. It is just the most lovely, laid-back, comfortable place you can imagine. Our room was simple, but comfortable and spotlessly clean. The property is filled with trees, plants and flowers. The large pool is really nice and it is very well-maintained. Bestof all is the tiny bar/restaurant that serves really good food. The menu isn't extensive, but the dishes are well-prepared and the food is very fresh. The staff are all very friendly, polite and helpful. It is not directly on the beach, but it is only a two-minute walk. the neighbouring hotel has begun to play music until quite late some nights, but it didn't bother us. We would come back to stay with Mustapha and his crew anytime.

We stayed for two weeks in october 2022 and it was such a great place to stay . The staff are so lovely , most live on the grounds and are always there to smile and help . Evenings by the fire mixing with everyone and hearing about their lives was wonderful. I want to thank Alexandria for all the help and good tips on what to do and see . She is there most days , and if she is not responds straight away to whats app messages. The pool right in the middle of a lush jungle like garden is really lovely . Food and the cocktails are brilliant . It really felt like a little corner of paradise . Mustphas place is about 3km walk to Paje , which we did often , very easy walk along the beach to town, we preferred being a little outside , as Paje does get busy . Lovely white sand beach, two minutes walk down a sand path also very easy and nit too many people at all . We will absolutely come back to Mutaphas place thank you again all the staff for looking after us . All our best , Sasha , Yann and Leo's

Kids love it here. Welcoming. Thank you for the playground. We came here in 2016 and again now in 2022. The pool is amazing. Hard to leave. Easy to come back. Also very hard to find a place this amazing for our family at less than $100 usd a night. Thank you again. We will certainly return some day when we have enough pennies again. Also really like that this place is inclusive. People from all over the world. Locals and tourists rubbing elbows. More our style. Peace. Asante Sana!

beautiful brick huts, some with two floors, clean and comfortable, in a beautiful palm garden. Cozy restaurant, soft atmosphere, excellent cuisine, a good cook. A stone's throw from a white sand beach and palm trees. Only the private beach is missing, it would be enough to put a couple of sunbeds and a bit of shade.

Very relaxed community of unique houses surrounded by beautiful grounds and an excellent pool. Friendly staff and decent cafe and bar. In quiet location about twenty minutes along the beach from more lively Paje.

Beautiful gem with easy access to the beach. Fantastic staff and atmosphere you feel instantly at home. The food is great. The lady who gives massage is very good. There's hammocks and sofas dotted around in the lush setting. We truly enjoyed our stay. The only thing I could ask for is a few more shelves and hooks in the room which are simple but very clean and to be honest you only sleep there so you don't need much more. Thanks Alessandra, Mustapha, Stella and the rest of the staff for our stay.

This was the perfect place to decompress after our Tanzania safari. Loved the unique bungalows and beautiful pool. I would give it a 5 but I felt they were a bit stingy in some respects...we had to buy our own water, the breakfast was ok but there was a charge for anything beyond coffee, 2-eggs, toast and fruit, and when I asked to borrow a bike for the 1.5 mile walk to the ATM in Paje, I was told the bikes are rented for $5. That's a deal if I wanted the bike for the day, but I would've had it back in less than an hour. ATM didn't have any cash, anyway! Dinner was fine but if you walk about 1/4 mile north there is a local place 1 row off the beach where the prices are half. Be sure to use the bed mosquito nets, this was the only place in 2 weeks in Tanzania where mosquitos were a problem.
