El Taj Oceanfront & Beachside Condos Hotel
Ranked #47 of 217 Hotels in Playa del Carmen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 July 2010

WOW! What a great experience my husband and I had while staying at the El Taj. Our room was #345, and it was incredible. The view of the ocean, along with the private hot tub, made our honeymoon totally relaxing. El Taj is located within walking distance to all different kinds of restaurants, bars, and clubs. And, of course, the condo is located right on the beach. It was pretty cool to lay out, and have the waiter from the restaurant come and dig a hole for your own umbrella, and then come back with beers! The staff was so helpful in planning excursions for us. We went on a lot of adventures, like a cave tour, and were always grateful to get back to room #345 to relax. It really felt like home.

This place was recommended by a friend that used it in the past.
i went with my girlfriend and 2 yr old twins as well as her parents.
We had suite number 345 and
this place was 1500 square foot 3 bedroom full condo with everything you need. Fulkl kitchen, washer and dryer. It is literally brand new and was gorgeous.
And the best part was this condo had a 1200 square foot upper level terrace which had a great BBQ, an awesome hot tub! and a great big sitting area under a palapa. We ended every day there and had a great great time. I've stayed in many places but this place is WOW. It was an 8 minute walk to Walmart to buy milk and diapers and fruit etcc. Its 5 minutes away from great restaurants and nightclubs and shopping. You dont need a car. Everythning is in walking distance. When we shopped at Walmart, it cost $5 for a taxi to the condo.

I highly recommend this place. Its posh, brand new and has everything you need. Pool, Beach, privacy and access to everything.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom penthouse condo, and from the first moment of walking into the hotel, we were amazed how everything looked. As soon as you walk up the entrance stairs your breath is taken away from the view of the condos overlooking the ocean. Great first impression!
All the staff are very friendly and would do anything for us.
Our condo was very stylish, had everything we needed and the cleaners always kept the condo spotless.
Also the hotel is situated very very close to the main bars/clubs and all the restaurants & shops, (2 min walk)
If i was to go to playa del carmen again, there would be no other hotel i would stay at
EL TAJ is definately the place to stay!!!!!!!
