HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 September 2016

We thought this was so much better than a larger all-inclusive resort.

There were nice touches...

We absolutely loved this place. The rooms, location and entire staff were all incredible. This was a family vacation with our two kids (13 & 10). And you won't find a more perfect place for families. The rooms are amazing and you have a ton of space. We had a 2-room penthouse suite with the private rooftop deck with jacuzzi...

Beautiful property away from the resort crowds. Located off a quiet street and on the Caribbean. Condos are beautifully decorated and up to date. Staff extremely caring, kind, and friendly. Good food at the beach restaurant.

Stayed in the 3Bedroom Penthouse for 5nights with Friends. Extremely happy with the quality of the apartments, location and cleanliness.

Wow! El Taj and the staff are amazing! Staff was welcoming, kind and friendly! The room was large, clean and amazing! The view was perfect! This was one of the best vacations. Location, location, location! The beach with the beautiful blue waters: breathtaking. We enjoyed watching the fisherman arrive daily. So peaceful. We will return.
