I've been to Playa del Carmen many times, this time we had to find a place to hold a wedding ceremony. We stayed in the 3 bedroom condo with private terrace. It was beautiful and we had a gorgeous view.

Hotel's Favorite
I visited in May of this year with a friend, both of us had a great time. The location is amazing, right on the beach. Clean, beautiful view of the ocean from the patio. I loved having a full-sized kitchen to cook with. The breakfast included option saved me more than once. Most importantly, the staff were fabulous from the front desk reception to the Indigo Beach club to the concierge. Andres was very dependable and helpful, he really went out of his way to make our stay a great one. I'll definitely be back!

We had a very nice week here. Cozy garden and pool areas. Lovely sunrises at the beach bar. Very nice and helpful staff. The beach wasn't all that nice right outside the hotel, we had to walk a bit up the beach to be able to swim which was a big issue for me, on crutches at the time, but wouldn't be otherways. A lot of stairs and no elevator to reach all places in the area, so maybe a problem for disabled. Shadow on the beachchairs in the afternoons. Nice rooms and overall a very pleasant stay.

El Taj is perfectly located right next to the beach. The staff makes you feel welcomed soon as you walk in the door. Everyone is very professional. The rooms are beautiful. Very clean. Tons of extras are included with the rooms. Perfect location. Couple blocks from 5th ave. Security 24/7. Has two pools. Some of the rooms have their own Jacuzzis. Beautiful place to stay with a family. We’re definitely coming back. Can’t wait!

I book trough Airbnb from February 6th to March 11th. I rented condo 343 on the second floor with my private jacuzzi. This place is amazing and the host Patricia was the best. She even answered my questions during her vacation The view from my balcony was breathtaking. I enjoyed sitting and watching the view of the ocean while enjoying your coffee. The staff is amazing, there like family and I felt very safe there. The condo was beautiful and super clean. Everytime I needed something like water soap or ice, the attended to me right away. I enjoyed doing aquavit. Thank you to all the staff for an amazing time
