A group of 4 of us stayed in room 336 (penthouse, rooftop) a few weeks ago. The place is really as great as the reviews say it is. The place is amazing and the boats were not a bother to us, nor was the noise of the clubs. The location and views cannot be beat and the service at the Indigo club was superb. Each day one of the workers would dig a hole and place an umbrella over our bed on the beach. We would then have someone bringing us food and drinks all day. At night we would walk directly down the road to many restuarant choices or down the beach to Fusion (recommend for drinks on the beach). We also enjoyed going to Luna Blue to listen to some live music one night (very fun). Everything is within a short walk of the condo. The WIFI worked well and the large amount of filtered water in the condo was a nice touch.
If you are wondering about the safety of Playa, I never felt unsafe. We walked around the streets and along the beach at night without incident.
My only complaint regarding El Taj was the concierge who messed up our excursion reservation and cancelled our private chef at the last minute without even offering alternative dining options. From what I can tell, this is not the norm so maybe she was just having a bad week. I would confirm all reservations with the concierge prior to your trip to make sure.
I highly recommend El Taj. I do not think you will be disappointed (unless you are one of those people who simply cannot be pleased).
