This has been the perfect vacation! El taj is a 4 stars resort but the rooms themselves are at least 5 stars. Seriously - the most fabulous, spacious, well decorated, comfortable and spotless rooms I have seen. The service is also 5 stars - efficient and friendly. Just great. El taj is located at the beating heart of Playa -... More

This hotel was great! We were there for 5 days on a Bachelor Party and we rented one of the ocean front penthouses. The room was amazing and the stay was perfect. The staff was amazing, specially our Concierge Annuar and our Cleaning Lady Guadalupe. They helped us so much with all our requests. Cant wait to go Back!

We rented #302 for 5 days and had a great time. The staff was very responsive and professional. The only issue was the marketing photos of the unit made it appear to be on the beach while the views were actually of some buildings under construction. You could technically see the beach from the roof but you had to look... More

This is my second visit to El Taj--the first was in November 2012--and I'm happy to report that this lovely hotel continues to amaze. As I write, my balcony door is open and I can hear the waves lapping at the shore behind the sounds of people laughing on the street and some happy mariachi band at a nearby resort.... More

We booked a 1 bedroom oceanview from Expedia. When we got to El Taj, we were given a room with no oceanview. No ocean at all, not leaning over a railing or from any window or patio. After a little complaining, we were told that in 2 days we could have oceanview. Our next room was 2 bedroom with a... More
