We and our family and friends, took over 39 units for a wedding week in November 2014. The service, amenities, comforts, food, and attention were superb! there was no request that was not carefully satisfied for an entire week or more. every person, from front desk, to concierge, to bellmen, to housekeepers, were joyful, gracious, hospitable, and attentive to detail....

We stayed in a 3rd floor Beachside Penthouse Condo. The condo itself was very nicely appointed and comfortable. However, our private deck seemed a little dated. The only other huge downside was the absence of elevators which made the trek up 3 flights several times a day a bit old... Because we ate out every day we didn’t get a... More

we stayed there expecting a lovely beach front ocean view and a wrap around balcony, as that is what the website says! That's a lie! When we got there the room which said the above did not have a beach view in fact it had an awful view of a dirty worn down place! The "wrap around" balcony was straight... More

The condo, the property, the location all make for a perfect vacation. We stayed in a third floor, one bedroom condo, 355 which is beautiful, spacious, spotless and very comfortable, especially for the one rainy day we had when we hung out in the living room and balcony. We had our breakfast every morning on the large, private balcony which... More

My wife and I just got home from El Taj in playa del Carmen and I already started planning my trip there next year. It's the highest rated hotel for a reason. First, if you are looking for a party atmosphere all inclusive resort, this is not it. The demographic is mainly honeymooners, small groups of couples, young families, and... More

We stayed for a week in condo 328 and it was amazing from start to finish. The only bad thing was that we couldn't stay for longer! Wonderful ocean views, great balcony with a private hot tub, the apartment had everything you could need and more, it was immaculately clean, very private and quiet.

This condo complex is absolutely gorgeous. The pool is so refreshing after a day in the ocean. We (3 couples) stayed in #350 the first night. The staff is very helpful and pleasant. The condo is beautifully decorated. The little porch was a great spot to congregate and watch the ocean. The beds are super comfortable and they put cushy... More

We' ve spent tree days in El Taj this november. Staff was very helpful, lovely and able to satisfy all client' s needs. We' ll certanly come back to this hotel in our next time in Playa del Carmem. Notice we got a suite with no view of the sea, but we still have remarkable memories of the place.
