A Luxury Boutique Hotel

and Beach Club in Playa del Carmen, Mexico


El Taj is the proud recipient of the 2014 & 2013 TripAdvisor’s 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 resort, 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 on many terraces. El Taj offers 57 spacious units in total, situated on two separate sister properties.
