El Taj Oceanfront condo description

My Name is Rick Howe. I'm an experienced voyager to Mexico, and I write reviews

I can book any unit at El Taj Oceanfront, El Taj Beachside, Maya Villa, Porto Playa or Villas Sacbe. And all my exclusive discounts apply to all bookings.

WHEN I BOOK A RESERVATION YOU WILL RECEIVE CONFIRMATION AND PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS DIRECT FROM EL TAJ. I DO NOT TAKE PAYMENTS. YOU ARE WORKING DIRECTLY WITH PLAYA ASSOCIATES, THE MANAGERS OF EL TAJ, MAYA VILLA, PORTO PLAYA AND VILLAS SACBE.

In early 2012, after only two stays at El Taj, we fell in love with the place (more true than you know - it's where my son proposed to his girlfriend) and ended up as owners!

Unit 328 features spectacular ocean views and in a large (1300 sq. Ft) second-floor 2 bedroom unit. It features its own private wrap around terrace with outdoor jacuzzi and a separate sun parlor with an outdoor wet bar and refrigerator and even an outdoor electric BBQ grill. Enjoy dining or lounging on your private terrace with superb ocean views. Enter your large living room, and feel like you are in Bali, as every detail in this unit has an authentic Balinese origin. The living room has curved windows facing the beach plus two large sliding glass doors leading out to the private terrace.Take advantage of your terrace and enjoy a meal from your own outdoor BBQ grill or soak in your own jacuzzi, while watching the bright tropical stars and views of Cozumel on the horizon of the sea.

El taj oceanfront is directly in front of the ocean and el taj beachside is across the street. Guests get to use all of our amenities, including two incredible heated pools. One is an exotic black mosaic infinity pool on the beachside property, while the oceanfront's heated pool sits right on the beach in front of our trendy indigo beach club. We're located in the liveliest area of playa that offers the convenience of the best restaurants, nightlife and shopping within one block of el taj.

The beachside condos have private terraces that are surrounded by exotic plants and lily ponds, and all face the pool and cascading waterfalls. All of the penthouse units in el taj beachside feature ocean views from their private rooftop decks. All of the oceanfront's units have views of the ocean.

Our designers traveled the globe in search of a perfect design, and selected most of materials in Indonesia, trying to recreate an environment reminiscent to bali. Perhaps you want to stretch out on one of our original antique Balinese lounge beds? Or gaze at our lush tropical gardens with the sound and sight of water falling into a large pool covered with beautiful iridescent tiles? All the architectural details and decorative accessories have been imported from bali, including a Buddha statue that is next to a koi fish pond with lilies in bloom. Even our beach club includes furnishings and umbrellas imported from bali.

We offer services and amenities that are usually associated with the world's finest hotels. Playa del Carmen has numerous options for hotels with nice amenities, but el Taj truly stands above the rest.

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About: I am a new owner at El Taj Oceanfront. But I have vast experience in Mexico, particularly in the Yucatan and Quintana Roo Coast. We fell in love with El Taj in 2011, when my son proposed to his (now) fiancé. The setting, the location, the suites and the people - it was all magic. So now I am in a position to share that magic with you! And you can check my website

              Why El Taj Oceanfront:
              El Taj is the proud recipient of the 2012 & 2013 Travelers' Choice Award for top hotels in Mexico. It was also chosen as one of the top luxury hotels in Mexico, in addition to one of the trendiest hotels. Playa del Carmen has no other hotel that has won all these top three categories. El Taj has also received recognition from The New York Times and USA Today for its design, luxury and excellence in service. We are not an all-inclusive Ritz-type hotel, but we are considered to be the best of the area's hotels. Playa del Carmen has a lot to offer, but nothing compares to El Taj. El Taj's luxury units have one to four bedrooms that feature huge living rooms and fully equipped kitchens with private outdoor Jacuzzis in many terraces. El Taj offers 57 spacious units in total, situated on two separate sister properties.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              The Mexican Government has increased the IVA Tax to 19% as of Jan. 1, 2014 (it previously was 14%). I will instantly REBATE that 5% increase on your booking, out of my own pocket! And other exclusive discounts may apply to your reservation.
