WONDERFUL 1 BR CONDO. VERY LARGE. GREAT LOCATION.
THIS IS A GREAT CONDO. LARGEST 1 BR UNIT. NEAR POOL. VERY QUIET. GREAT PEOPLE TO WORK WITH. ALSO RESTAURANT IS EXCELLENT.
My husband and I were just in Playa del Carmen and stayed at this property as well as at Porto Playa (owned by the same company, equally as beautiful). The unit and grounds are gorgeous and so tastefully decorated! The Indigo Beach Club just steps away is wonderful for any meal and drinks, either seated or lounging under your umbrella on one of the beach chairs that are free for your use. The white sandy beach is amazing, and being right on it makes it so easy to stroll down and stop at any one of the fabulous restaurants along the oceanfront. We spent much of our time hopping between our beach chairs, checking out 5th avenue and having drinks/food and returning to our chairs to soak up the sun. It was a perfect vacation and we will absolutely be returning!
This place has it all and is beautiful. The white sandy beach is literally steps from the front door. The unit is very clean and tastefully decorated. The staff is pleasant and very helpful. The Indigo Beach Club makes great food and even better drinks (try the grande margaritas!). I would highly recommend staying here.
Glad you enjoyed your stay with us Thanks for the nice note.
Girls Just Want To Have Fun
Spent a great time with friends at El Taj Ocean in Playa del Carmen. We couldn't have had a better room, #341. Ocean views everywhere! Our room was very close to the spa pool overlooking the ocean and steps away from the beach. The service at the Indigo Beach Club was fantastic , whether they where cleaning your sunglasses or repositioning your beach umbrella! If you have never been to Playa before , there is so much to do. I've enjoyed side trips to Tulum to visit the ruins and the snorkeling at Xel-Ha. And of course the shopping on 5th Avenue which is only a block away! If you are looking for an overall great vacation ,stay here, you won't be disappointed!
El Taj Ocean was a great place for a beach getaway. Laura, who booked our reservation, couldn't have been more helpful in planning our trip. Unit 341 was beautiful and just steps away from the white sandy beach and clear blue waters of the Caribbean. We loved sitting out on the patio having coffee and watching the sunrise or sitting out in the evening with a glass of wine watching the sunset. The Indigo Beach Club on the property is awesome. Their service was amazing . Great food & drinks. Can't wait to go back!
Thank you so much - we love it too! El Taj Ocean was ranked the #2 property in all of Mexico and it's an awesome place. Glad you enjoyed it
Amazing Beach Vacation
El Taj Ocean was amazing. The picturesque ocean view from the patio was so relaxing. Each morning we sat outside and drank our coffee and each evening we had drinks and appetizers while watching the sun set. We spent the day lounging in comfortable beach chairs, while every request was handled graciously by the staff. Late afternoons we languished in the aqua spa steps from the patio relaxing after a day at the beach. The evenings were so much fun as we headed down to 5th Avenue for delicious food, drinks and entertainment. We're already planning another "amazing beach vacation" at El Taj Ocean!
El Taj Ocean is located on the beach in the Premier Zone of Playa del Carmen. You can walk everywhere and have no need for a car.
