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, with a nice pool, and a really crazy 'window plunge pool' above. Hard to explain, but a lot of fun!

One of the things that really made El Taj stand out for us was the staff. All of the staff, from the bell-boy, the reception staff, Rudi the pool concierge and the guys at the restaurant were so friendly, accommodating and welcoming. They really made our stay here so enjoyable.

I would definitely recommend El Taj as a great place to stay - very close to the main strip of P de C, healthy diverse buffet for breakfast, great pier right in front for swimming/snorkelling etc. And (worth repeating) wonderful staff!

Enjoy it!

Everyone was a hundred percent professional and accommodating not to mention the receptionist at the desk by her name Patty!! She was phenomenal sincerely transparent!! We stayed in the penthouse and the rooms were extremely spacious lots of storage super sophisticated. The kitchen and living room was also spacious, ideal for big groups. The seal on the top deck was amazing overlooking the ocean and the jacuzzi was great.

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! There wasn't a lot of natural light unfortunately and our view was of a building site but we got one of the more basic rooms because we brought our dog with us. The other higher rooms we heard have spectacular views of the ocean.

The staff were superb!!! The pools are also lovely but quite small so in peak season I don't know how comfortable they would be. When we were there we basically had both pools to ourselves! I would 100% go back but next time I'd try and get a roof top room. The area is lovely. The beach is gorgeous but the beach area in front of El Taj you can't swim in because there are fishing boats there. You have to walk about 5 minutes to get to the sea you can swim in. I would absolutely recommend for couples.

We absolutely loved our stay here. The staff are wonderful and very personable, and go out of their way to take care of you. We loved everyone we meet and interacted with there. The condos are spacious and clean, and very much feel like home while you stay there. The pool is fantastic, as is the view of the beach. One of our favorite parts of our vacation was having breakfast at Indigo Beach every morning, which is the condo's restaurant and beach club. The service and food there is wonderful, too. Another bonus was the included chocolate soaps and shampoos - it was a small thing but one of the many that made our vacation wonderful. As an aside, the weather report the week we stayed there was full of thunderstorms, but our stay was beautiful, so don't trust the weather reports :) Thank you El Taj for making our trip so wonderful!! #TeamElTaj
