My wife and I just returned from a trip to Playa del Carmen and we stayed in Unit 327, a large 1 bedroom condo on the ground floor, to celebrate our anniversary. To say that we enjoyed our stay would be an understatement. This is a beautiful property that is located in the most central location one could hope for if they wanted to be in the middle of all that Playa has to offer. We walked everywhere and loved it! The unit is a beautifully decorated 1-bedroom on the bottom floor with a great ocean view from the patio and the living room/kitchen. It is literally two steps from the entrance to the jacuzzi and a few more steps down a short staircase to the pool. You can see the water from the open patio out front as well. The resort staff was wonderful. The bellmen we dealt with and the people at the front office and concierge all spoke great english which helped us tremendously since our spanish was quite limited. Everyone was friendly, welcoming, and always diligently working to keep the entire resort as clean and well-maintained as could be. Additionally, the owner was great to deal with. If we were staying at El Taj again, I'd hope to deal with the owner again because he was so thorough and easy to contact. We had a small issue with a miscommunication upon arrival and with a quick email to the owner he had it straightened out in a matter of minutes. He also was really helpful in emails prior to our trip providing us with some local tips and tricks for getting to and from the airport and eating as well! It was a real pleasure. We hope to stay there again! If you're looking for an easy going stay at a place that isn't too big like all the cookie cutter resorts, give El Taj, and specifically Unit 327, a look. You'll be hard pressed to find a better all-around experience. Thanks again!
