It also has a lavish, huge lounge and kitchen area and an attractive and well appointed, well functioning bathroom (in addition to the en-suite). It is situated on the 2nd floor with... More

We stayed at El Taj for our honeymoon and we had high expectations because of all the amazing reviews. It was a beautiful resort but not quite 5 stars unfortunately. The rooms were nice but bathrooms could have been bigger and our ocean view was more like an ocean glimpse!!! Marco on front desk was very helpful and the beach... More

We stayed at El Taj from 12/21/14-12/28/14 in a 2BR/2BA penthouse unit #312. It was immaculate and very comfortable for myself, wife and 2 older kids (21 & 24). We decided to stay at El Taj after much research because of it's proximity to the beach and to 5th Ave. & the clubs (for our kids). The property is absolutely... More

I wish I did not have to write this review, but in #305 - the music was REALLY loud. I agree, the condos themselves are nice, spacious, and the service provided were great. But, let me list why I am giving this property a "2". (1) There are now numerous clubs at the end of the street. From unit 305... More

We are a family of five, ages range from 18 to 58. This condo hotel exceeded everyone’s expectations. The rooms were clean, spacious (more so that you would expect), open and nicely decorated. It has the amenities of a luxury hotel, but with added charm and more personalized service. We were on the beach side, with a great, intimate infinity... More
