First, no way could I give El Taj less than 5 stars. The staff is outstanding. Did not meet a single person who was not willing to help, answer question, find a chair, etc. All with a big smile. We stayed in #355, which is a one bedroom. Very clean and nice layout if you want to get some sleep. All we did was run the A/C fan all night for some white noise and we never heard a sound outside our room. The location on the beach is excellent. The location to 5th ave is excellent.
Improvements we would like to make on our next visit: The living room for #355 is not very useful as it really needs a true coffee table instead of that silly little table it has now. It's really just stupid. Maybe pick a room where the living room has some sort of view too. The beach is not the best because of the boats all parked there and how tight the chairs are, but we got over that pretty quickly.
All in all, it was a GREAT stay and can't imagine staying anywhere else in Playa.
