We just got back from a week at El Taj. The property is really beautiful! The new suites have wonderful top finishes and plenty of room. (The beds were extremely hard as a side note.) The hotel is right on a spectacular white, sandy beach along the breath-taking blue Carribbean Sea shoreline.
The staff was fantastic! From the front desk, to the concierge, the management, the beach-front waitstaff, maintenence, and finally the staff at the Indigo Beach club were all superb! Truly, everyone was wonderfully welcoming and accommodating.
The hotel is only a few blocks from 5th Ave and all the shops, restaurants, and nightlife that you'll want for a fun vacation. The Indigo club is a bit small and when everyone goes down for breakfast in the morning, there can be a wait. And the chairs on the beach fill up extremely fast, so be sure to plan for those events. The gym is being remodeled in Dec 2011 which will be nice as it's currently a bit small as well.
The Riviera Maya is a dream away from home-we had a wonderful honeymoon full of great memories! Thank you.
