There isn't much to say about El Taj, except that it is almost perfect. Rooms are big and extremely clean, bed is tall, big and amazingly comfortable (my room was the 354).
Staff is friendly and helpful in a perfect balance without being pedant. My staying was PERFECT from the moment I booked from the moment I left the hotel.
My wife and I didn't want to stay in an all inclusive resort. I wanted to explore everything Playa has to offer, from tours to restaurants and shops. For that purpose El Taj is the best option. Location can't get any better (one block from 5th av where all restaurants and shops are)
To be honest we didn't stayed much at the hotel or the beach club, but the one time we did stay we really liked. It could get a little crowd and the beach isn't the best to swim and service was great and also food was tasty and above average for a beach restaurant
THE BEST ABOUT EL TAJ
Room (size, amenities, cleaning)
Beautiful and comfy decoration
IT COULD BE BETTER
Sound proof windows - some night clubs make a lot of noise at night
It really worth it paying a little more to stay and the ocean front buildings
There is not really an ocean view from most of the rooms
