My wife and I have just stayed 10 nights at this hotel and frankly couldn't be happier! The rooms are fantastic- with comfy beds and sweet air conditioning if you want to escape the heat for a little while. Service is fast and friendly with great complimentary restaurant options for breakfast AND a surprisingly inexpensive and tasty room service menu....

Just returned from my 3d trip to Playa del Carmen, my first stay at El Taj. It was excellent. The only reason I didn't rate the resort a "5"' across the board was the beach and the boats. However, that can be solved by a short walk up or down the beach. El Taj is almost like being in Tahiti...

Stayed 5 nights at this condo hotel. My arrival from Cancun airport was very nice and smooth. Took the private transfer before, but realize it was overpriced, so I did some research and found out they sell bus tickets to Playa for $128 pesos, only 9 bucks for a single trip. So decided to give it a try. Please note...

The property is excellent,well kept and very luxurious,housekeeping stayed busy all day long keeping the room and surrounding areas clean and attractive. However, if the beach is the main reason of your trip, look otherwise! the water is very unattractive(very unusual for Playa!) and most of the oceanfront is occupied by private/commercial boats all day long making it impossible to...
