    My First Visit to Mexico

    We had a wonderful time. The accomodations were lovely. Condos & grounds are immaculate. It is right around the corner from the beach. Indigo Beach Club is a real gem. Staff is very courteous & helpful. Will definitely be returning & staying at the EL Taj again.

    If you want a good lobster or steak dinner, go to the Blue Lobster restaurant. The food is wonderful & so is the service.

    i went back, i will be back

    for us the location is great...perhaps prettier beaches in cancun but way too many big hotels. playa still has some personal feel. both on the 5th ave shopping and the people. hotel is located on the water but close to all the action, be in shopping or loud night clubbing. the local fishing fleet are anchored of the hotel beach. some do not like, i like the activity and energy the fishermen and their clientele bring to the beach. not the best beach as for extensive body surfing but sitting on the beach enjoying the beachside dining is excellent. if want to body surf go down a litlle . the staff, from owner on down are excellent. they try and really do want to help

    Very Nice

    Took the family for spring break. Great small hotel with big hotel feel. Never had to fight for a seat at the beach or pool side. You can walk to everything in town, shopping dinning, morning coffee, car rental 1 block away. Rooms are well maintained and clean. Great breakfast and lunch on the beach. I will be going back. Staff is super helpful.

    Impressive

    We spent 4 nights at the Hotel and we had a exceptional pleasant stay. Everything exceeded our expectations. Location is a must. Walking distance from 5th Avenue and even though the clubs close by play loudly music, the acoustic of the place blocked the noise very nicely. Breakfast buffet was fantastic. Plenty of choices and well done. I can't wait to go back.

    Couple vacation

    The Taj was perfect. Great in town location. Our condo was large and nicely furnished and spotless. The desk staff was wonderful and check in was easy . The affiliated gym was great, modern,upscale and clean and the classes were good. It's not the best beach for swimming as there are a lot of boats tied up there. But the beach service was great. This was the only slight negative but I would definitely stay there again.
