The minute you arrive you will be treated with extraordinary professionalism! We had some issues on our first day caused by Mother Nature but they were solved very fast. Customer service is outstanding. The place is beautiful, clean and luxurious. You are very close to all the trendy restaurants, shops and bars. My only critique is the beach. Although this... More

We stayed at El Taj last week in unit 340 (by the way, stay in this unit if possible...probably the best accommodations on that entire stretch of beach). Every single person we came in contact with was extremely professional and friendly, from the front desk, the gentlemen that delivered our bags, to the housekeeping, everyone. The complimentary breakfast was unbelievable.... More

From the minute we arrived we loved everything about this place. Customer service is fantastic, room was wonderful. Full kitchen saved a ton of money on eating out. Right on the beach, quiet, near town.

We stayed this past week and our trip was amazing. Jack and the El Taj team have built an amazing place. The rooms are wonderful. We were in 315 and loved it.

My husband and I stayed at El Taj along with our 20 year old daughter for 10 nights at the end of August, into the beginning of September. I had read plenty of TA reviews beforehand, so my expectations were pretty high. Fortunately, they were met by the wonderful friendly, staff and the beautiful accommodations. We stayed in a 2...

Just came back from El Taj.. Weather was perfect. Rained maybe 30 min the whole 7 days we were there. We stayed in room 331 two steps away from the pool which was awesome. The customer service at el taj is what makes it excellent. The location is perfect next to la quinta and I had ZERO noise problems from... More

El Taj has many wonderful attributes, but I would never stay again due to the over-powering stench of rotting seaweed. It must be some sort of ownership / ordinance issue, but this half of the beach is covered in 12-24" of seaweed. Across the wharf, the hotel staff rake up the seaweed frequently enough that it is comfortable to walk,... More

Spend half day at their resort relaxing on the beach ground. Great pool to relax and enjoy the view along with the drinks. Kids love to walk the grounds. A little bit over crowded but well control by the staff, who are always there to get your drinks.
