My husband and I stayed at El Taj for 4 days and I realized I didn't write a review for this fantastic place. The customer service was amazing. The suites were spectacular and very spacious and clean. We loved every minute of our stay. The pool was beautiful. We didn't stay in the area for the beach but walk along until we found an area we liked and payed our daily rate.

Hands down the best place to stay if have families and kids. We stayed for 6 nights during new years time. The unit has full kitchen, one large bedroom and big big bathroom. The kitchen is modern and the washer dryer was a great addition. The kids were always in water for one reason or other and its great to be able to wash and dry swim gears. The 5th ave is one block away and THAT IS NOT The case with expensive resorts. You are beholden to those resort shops, in addition 5th is happening livel... Read more

The rooms are comfortable and ample. Full kitchen with everything you probably will not use. Fridge had some good craft beers! Soap and shampoo is cacao (chocolate) infused, youâ??ll want to eat it. 5th avenue is just a couple of blocks away which makes it very convenient. Keep in mind, most big resorts are NOT walking distance from 5th avenue which is the main strip in Playa. Overall a great place. I'd stay there again.

I had not been to PDC since 2004 and it has changed dramatically. It has grown a lot in the past 12 years...my husband found it too commercial nowadays, but I still really liked it. El Taj is a great choice...we stayed in unit 339 with 3 couples and it was wonderful. Beautiful condo and excellent service. We paid for the breakfast and thought it was totally worth the value. You have two options for breakfast and both are very good. Overall, I loved this place...the only drawback is the lack of b... Read more

We came to this hotel to enjoy some great time with my friends who came to visit me. We stayed in a family room and honestly it really needs a complete renovation. The furniture is old and the lighting does not work. The cleaning is terrible. The hotel staff does not know Playa del Carmen to give us info. The beach restaurant the service is average and there is actually no beach. Too many boats right in front of the hotel for which we had to go to a beach club where we had lots of fun and the s...

We rented 2 condos here for 10 days. Traveling with my husband, daughter and her partner. The rooms were good size , clean and well equipped. I rented a partial view room thinking I would have a peak a boo view of the ocean. Nope . No view of anything. The pool was ok , nothing special. The beach restaurant serves good breakfasts. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bummer- storms and surf have eroded all of their beach. Seriously all but 10-15 ft is gone. The palapas are gone or ... Read more

This is a mid size hotel right on the beach. Unfortunately, even due to beach erosion, which is no fault of the hotel, you cannot get in the water because of the fishing boats anchored to the beach. You have to beach somewhere else if you want to go in the water. This hotel has arrangements with other hotels to use their facilities but you must travel and then meet a food/drink minimum. Lots of stair climbing as there are not elevators on the room we had (315). Staff was great especially ou... Read more

I gave the El Taj only 3 stars not based on the accommodations (which are lovely), but mainly due to the fact that the food is NOT very good, the front desk manager and desk attendants are not personable or helpful and the beach has pretty much been eroded away. Understand the beach erosion is of out of their control, although Cancun has been adding sand to their eroding beaches for years. The food at all of their outlets and the professionalism or lack there of at the front desk are all area... Read more

Sold us an ocen view and gave us one with a completely obstructed view. Couldn't see anything unless you stood on the table. Granted, before all the beach erosion and need to put heavy potted foliage to barrier the room and hotel outside dining area, I bet it did have a great ocean view. But it now has NO view! And of course the had no other rooms available. Stop selling it as room with a sea view and people will not start off their vacation feeling taken advantage of and deceived. Such an... Read more

Not a luxury hotel, but overall a nice place to stay close to the sea. The room is modern and spacious. Only one problem, the shower was not very convenient to use since I have to hold it by hand. Love the design of the jacuzzi. The pool was small but well designed. Breakfast in Indigo Veach Club was good, enjoyed a lot of fresh fruit.
