Beautiful Condo close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was beautifully updated, clean and near everything! The beach is literally out your front door and down a few steps and downtown Playa two blocks away. We loved that it functioned as a condo/hotel as they had all the amenities of a hotel but with the space of a condo.

Meal vouchers were available for off-site restaurants through the hotel. They were a great value but more importantly the restaurants were wonderful! This is coming from someone who considers themselves a foodie and travels all over the world.

As mentioned, the beach is close but I wouldn't consider it a swimming beach. There are boats anchored immediately off shore. If you're looking for that "perfect beach" you won't find it immediately outside of the property. HOWEVER, you will find it by taking a 5 minute walk down the beach. Beaches are public in Mexico so finding a place to lay your towel or a beach club with chairs (the price for a chair is nominal) is no problem. This property also has agreements with other beach clubs in the area. All you need to do is spend a small amount (easy to do!) and you're able to enjoy their facilities all day.

We were concerned about the club noise the first evening we were there but quickly learned that the white noise machines, provided in the bedrooms, drowned out most everything. My husband is particularly sensitive to noise and never complained once...a ringing endorsement!

Working with the owners was a dream. They are incredibly responsive to all inquiries as was the Taj staff. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: We are so thrilled that you enjoyed your stay at El Taj so much! Playa del Carmen has grown from a small fishing village to a large community now enjoyed by all. By law, all beaches are public so we have to respect the fisherman. Depending on the time of day, you may find boats in front or not. El Taj also offers transport to other beach club options for you to explore (as of Jan 2017) and we are glad you got to experience them too! This is probably one of the most significant and unique amenities that El Taj has to offer. We hope to have you back again soon!
