Stayed in unit #325 in the Oceanside El Taj for 10 nights with my family of 5. Pools were smaller than I imagined but unique and beautiful. Lots of chlorine so blondes be ware!!! Kids liked the lagoon pool across the street in Beachside El Taj the best. Grass and plantings surround the black tiled pool.
Rooms were clean and kitchen was well stocked. Pay extra for an ocean view, well worth it. Railings and decks are dangerous for toddlers so just be weary and watch constantly!
Hotel is mostly European guests which gives it a very hip international vibe. Downtown Playa is just blocks away and so much fun to walk around. Would return to El Taj for sure.
Do not take photos with a group called Ecopercetion.org!!! They claim they are seeking donations for the animal sanctuaries but this is false. They have been on 5th avenue with Tiger cubs, monkeys, jaguars and lions. Very sad and sedated animals. Not reputable group at all.
