HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2016

It hard to beat the service I get at St Regis or a Ritz Carlton but I think it's fair to say I found it at El TAJ! The incredible personal service even when I am demanding, a bit pushy...well ok quite pushy, giving specific requests even before I arrive. I deserved a red star altert to look out for... More

My wife and I and three small children stayed at El Taj at the beginning of September '16. We really loved it. We had a lovely, spacious 3 bedroom condo with a hot tub on the terrace. The kitchen was well equipped, and the washer-dryer came in very handy with three children! El Taj looks wonderful - all curved lines,... More

This place had awesome condos. It was right on the beach and centrally located. 2 blocks and you are where all the action happens. There was no noise issue. I would definitely stay here again. No need for a car.

El Taj is a beautiful hotel. We stayed in one of the lower level rooms and it was extremely spacious and completely spotless. We actually preferred it to our apartment at home!

We thought this was so much better than a larger all-inclusive resort. It is located right in the middle of Playa del Carmen so you get out to see the local environment and experience a wider range of restaurants and shopping than in the big resorts, which are all a taxi ride away from the town. There were nice touches... More
