What does U.S. News have to say about El Taj Ocean?

“With a bevy of hospitality industry awards under its belt, this condo-style beachfront resort in central Playa del Carmen consistently earns high praise for its stylish design, upscale amenities and friendly staff. Travelers looking for more space will find plenty of elbow room here, not to mention deluxe in-room extras like Egyptian cotton linens, private terraces or balconies, fully functional kitchens and flat-screen TVs.

And while staying here, you’ll have access to three on-site restaurants, the full-service Maya Spa and numerous heated pools and Jacuzzis, not to mention daily fitness classes. If you prefer the beach to the pool, El Taj’s Beach Club service provides everything from beach beds and umbrellas to food and drink service. But despite El Taj’s long list of amenities, guests cite the resort’s quality customer service as a primary reason to return.”
