4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had booked a 3 bedroom penthouse for a bachelorette party. We really loved the set up of the suite. It had a full kitchen and living room along with 2 full bathrooms. In addition we also had a balcony and rooftop jacuzzi. There was also an area for us to barbecue which was a private area. The location of the hotel was also great. It was within walking distance of fifth avenue. We were also in a good location for excursions.

We had a nice condo with an outstanding private rooftop with our own Jacuzzi, kitchen, seating and sunbathing area...views of water were spectacular....just magical!

The rooms where great. We stayed in Beachfront 313 and the condo was great. Best location in town. Close to 5th Ave, Plank and other fine restaurants. The staff was GREAT. We will be back.

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.

My recent stay at El Taj was excellent, its a great location if you want to be close to everything. Great service, staff is super friendly and accommodating.

perfect hotel, great location, good food, wonderful staff, we'll came back again!

The staff was very accommodating! We were in a king room and we had plenty of space for our two week vacation, nice to have a little space. The staff at Indigo beach club were great. The only problem some may have with the beach was all the boats were tied up right in front. I enjoyed watching the activity but not great if you want to easily excess the water. The pools were very cool but not great for lounging. The place is very pretty and great location, out the the front on the beach out the back only steps from great restaurants/shopping.

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.

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed at and I'm so picky about my hotels.

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

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.

Beautiful amenities, super friendly and service oriented staff. Gorgeous penthouse!!!! location is great, the only disadvantage is that there are 2 night clubs near by so it can be noise at times.

Staying in El Taj and the other two Condo Hotels Playa group is having the best of both worlds, a resort like setting away off from the hustle and bustle of the town center but within a five minute walk.
