We were a group of 16 people and we had a bit of an unusual request from the owner to use the venue for our meetings as well. He was very kind and allowed us to move furniture around and make the place comfortable for us. We had a good dinner on arrival and the breakfasts were good as well....

I definitely recommend Hakuna Shida to everyone looking for great service, coziness and convenient location.

An absolute treat! Some of the loveliest, most welcoming people we've met. Every individual or group need was met with patience, understanding and care. Food is delicious, it is very clean, but most importantly, it is a peaceful place where you feel at home, with friends. I would go back anytime!

Hakuna Shida is an awesome place. Very cozy, clean, quiet and most important - it has lovely staff. The restaurant offers good number of dishes and the food is really good. As a person who generally doesn't eat/like a lot of sea food, I was amazed by the taste of it.

We stayed here for several days over Christmas, and had a lovely time. Hakuna Shida is maybe a 30 second walk from one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen, and surrounded by a handful of bars, beach cafes and kite surfing places, if that is something you're into. Paje itself is a charming little village with lots...

Lovely little place with clean rooms and a nice pool. Breakfasts are OK but it is worth sticking around for dinner - I recommend the ceviche. Really helpful and friendly staff. Couldn't beat it for the price.

Quiet place, near to the beach, where food is great and service simple but good. Low budget, backpackers but also families will enjoy this place in Paje. highly recommended for a safe stay. A small swimming pool to chill out at night when the wind is blowing strongly.
