i travelled oct 15-22 to playa del carmen. the weather was absolutely perfect , extremely hot but definitely blue skies /sun all week. El Taj was amazing and beautiful and right on the OCean. as soon as you walk in you get the feeling of relaxation and tranquility . Service was impeccable. The hotel is close to everything in Playa del Carmen. We never needed a cab. Fifth ave where all the shopping, rest, and nightlife is is right around the corner. The entire staff was great. Marco at checkin /checkout was great. Pedro loves to clean your sunglasses everyday and ask Preguntas (inside joke with him) Miguel is right by your side whether your falling or need the umbrella. Alfonso and Crispen are the best servers on the beach and will get you whatever you want. For a boutique hotel , i felt the service was absolutely incredible. The best i have ever received on any vacation at any hotel. i have always stayed in big exclusive resorts but this time i was very impressed with El Taj being a boutique hotel. You cannot beat the service you will receive at El Taj. Also, for breakfast we really enjoyed going to Imprevist which is around the corner. We felt the food there was better than at the beach club. We actually took turns going to both places. Indigo beach club was a great time for during day or night . We really enjoyed the Beach club as well.
i cannot wait to go back and am already planning my next trip and stay to El Taj in June.
