About Jamais McCullough Trujillo

We have been enjoying Playa del Carmen for the past 8 yrs and love calling it home.

The Taj properties are very well maintained and the design of the building promotes lots of privacy. We took full advantage of the rooftop jacuzzi every night for sunset! The apartment was very well appointed, very clean with all the amenities expected. We'd definetly stay there again

amazing service and attention to details!

  • 5 of 5

thank you for making our vacation so special! The condo was exactly as advertised but even better... The customer service was excellent and the attention to detail was fantastic! Jamais Trujillo helped make all the important requirements come together. She was responsive - often answering my emails and phone calls late at night and on weekends....we certainly did not expact that. Once we arrived the condo was better than we had anticipated! Jamais even took her personal time to help us get situated with the area and help with recommendations for activities and restaurants.

Thank you for making our stay so special!
