We requested a beach front room but you have to do so months in advance since the rooms go very fast (we booked in June for a December trip). The water in Paje is BEAUTIFUL and we had dinner on the beach on several occasions. The hotel is very affordable and good for people on a budget. When driving to... More

Pros. Swimming pool is big and deep enough for actual swimming, VERY polite and helpful staff, spacious rooms with proper air conditioning (A/C is extremely crucial thing when it's nearly +40 outside with 100% humidity!), great location within walking distance to mini-markets, liquor store, motorbike/car rent centers, and countless beach restaurants. Cons. Breakfasts were quite poor, though as far as... More

As a kitesurfer, the only thing I liked about this hotel was the location. It's right on the beach in the middle of a great kiting spot. That being said, the rest of the hotel experience was very disappointing, a far cry from the hotels our friends were staying at during the same trip. We read the dodgy reviews, and... More

If you're not a kite surfer (this hotel is smack dab in the middle of several kite surfing rental shops and on the Paje kite surfing beach), and are looking for a relaxing, comfortable, spot on the beach I would avoid this place. First off, the food is FRIGHTFUL -- I don't know who the reviewers are who rave about... More
