This is my third time staying at El Taj. I have looked at other properties to stay at while there, to make sure it is the best and none can compare. It has the best location,the rooms are beautiful and staff is very accomodating. I have never had a problem with the noise and I have stayed on both sides...

Spent 10 nights in Penthouse 340, El Taj Oceanfront Condos recently for a milestone birthday with a bunch of close friends. It was just the ticket, close enough to the action but far enough away to sleep peacefully at night and wake up to AMAZING ocean views in the morning. Penthouse 340 is really the pick of the bunch and...

Spent 5 nights in lovely El Taj, room 348 (2nd floor). This condo is Oceanside and on the far side of the discos. We couldn't hear the music that other reviewers complained about. There was some random street noise (e.g., car alarm at 7 am once and a garbage truck a different day), but otherwise quiet. There are photos on...

My wife and I got married in Playa at another hotel and chose El Taj to stay for the remainder of our trip. It is a great property but I have a few pointers for you. #1....it is walking distance to some night clubs (discotecas) so it can get quite loud with the bass beats between 10pm and 3am. However,...

Experience started with amazing service from Lourdes and continued to be a dream vacation. We had just come from a bachelor party in Cabo the month prior at a huge cookie cutter resort and this was such a pleasent escape to go to with my girlfriend. The condos with ocean views and private hot tubs are great with amazing ocean...

My (now) husband and I got married in October in Playa, and selected El Taj for the guests and ourselves to book hotel accommodations. My husband is a general manager of a hotel here in the states, so he has VERY high standards, and both of us were impressed and 110% satisfied. It was absolutely everything we wanted: 1) Friendly...

We wanted to see as much of the Yucatan Peninsula as we could, so we first traveled to Merida and then on to Cancun before our last stop in Playa del Carmen. Merida was great and we're glad we got to see one of the early cities of Mexico. To be frank, we were unimpressed with Cancun, finding it "Las...

We loved our 5 night stay at El Taj. Best place to stay if you want to be in the heart of downtown playa on the beach, as oppose to staying in a resort away from the town. It's right on the beach with a beach club, restaurant/bar with friendly service. It's a great base to take tours from and...

We are a family of five people from Finland and spent one week at El Taj Oceanfront in June 2013. What we expected to have? Good food, some shopping, enjoying the sun and opportunity to go to Chichen Itza. What we got? Mostly all of these things. El Taj is a stylish place and we liked our room very much....

El Taj Oceanfront building is in front of the beach. The beachside building is on the street behind but a 5 minute walk to the beach and both very close to 5th avenue. This is not a hotel bur a condo, like a flat and has everything. More suitable for longer stays but I loved. The only negative points are:...
