Weekend trip to El Taj
I had a wonderful stay overall. Great amenities and a very relax atmosphere. My room was impeccable and the staff was very courteous and willing to go the extra mile. The negatives I would have to say is that the WI-FI did not function my entire hotel stay, I was surprised with a $500 Deposit upon arrival of what was not disclosed, some of the spa services in the Jacuzzi were not working and the pool was missing rocks that were very noticeable. Overall a decent stay.

In Playa del Carmen, there are few hotels oceanfront. Here they have a group of boats in front of the beach which may obstruct the view, but out of this, Service was awesome, excelent spa facilities, drinks at beach area were delicious. Breakfast had a wide variety, Hugo is the best Chef's Captain.

Hotel is fine, great location in town, but the beach is worthless. We went each day to other beaches which meant spending money in taxis and access fees...gym was excellent but it's located two blocks away. For the price we expected better...

Help! Where's the beach?
Beautiful condo/hotel! Great location in Playa! Our room was street side and the music from several local night clubs is very loud! Unfortunately, their beach has disappeared! Hundreds of sand bags and ropes holding up the beach palm trees. Lots of boats are tied up here causing seaweed (smell) buildup, ropes to trip on and no swimming in front of the hotel. It's time that Playa gets a marina! Still an overall good review!

A great birthday getaway!
Everything about El Taj was excellent. We were recommended to Maya Spa though, which was terrible, we ended up leaving half way through our facial, do not go there. Other than that, everything with the hotel and property was perfect!!
