We stayed at Tao for ten days and had a fabulous time. The cafe provided friendly and speedy service. (I only wish the menu had a few more options.) Afrojazz classes with Rene were the best! He has such energy and spirit. If he'd taught every day, I'd have gone. The pools are clean and uncrowded. Beautiful space.

Our original plan was to rent a place right next to the beach. However, by the time we started to look for accommodations nearly everything beach side had been taken. Although we were skeptical of renting a condo on the jungle side of the highway we were so happy that we did. Located behind the gates of the Bahia Principal... More

We booked this through air bnb and really had no idea what to expect. But, the price was right and we went for it. Four-bedroom condo for really cheap was perfect for cooking breakfast together, the place was clean and well-appointed. Concrete walls meant no sound bleed. This was fantastic. The house host was great, came and gave us instructions.... More

(Once again this is a review for the eatery on the ground level, NOT for the gym). Have eaten here a few times and the food is ok, but the service is better than most places in Mexico. Very quick and attentive, can eat and be gone fast. Not a whole lot of seating, about 5 tables. Happy hour is... More

We stayed at a very nicely appointed, privately-owned, first floor, air-conditioned, 2-bedroom condo, a Tao Wellness Center residence, and found it to be very comfortable. We had use of the facilities there, as well as many of the amenities of the huge Bahia Principe resort across the highway. We paid extra for the 'all inclusive' option there for 1+ night,... More

Set in a very tranquil setting although a little difficult to find this gym is very enjoyable to work out in. I loved visiting this centre but if my sister hadn't stayed previously I wouldn't have a clue where it was. Would be helpful to have colour coded notices for locations or road directions.

Currently part of the complex is under construction. It's a beautiful, safe location. The wellness center which is a bargain for "owners" isn't a bargain for travelers. Eat there only if that's the only option for whatever reason you have. Just outside the gates are fantastic places to eat.
