El Taj Playa Del Carmen–Playa’s Most Sought-After Address!
The El Taj Playa Del Carmen is the premier—and most sought-after—address in the city. One glance in its direction will quickly tell you why condos at the El Taj Playa Del Carmen were snapped up quicker than a ray of sunshine.
The El Taj is one of the few condo units in all of Playa Del Carmen to be situated directly on a beach, with its few beachfront competitors being located significantly further away from downtown Playa. But the beachfront location isn’t the only element drawing people in of course, the luxurious design and extremely well-constructed units were also huge selling points.
El Taj has been such a popular address that not only does this condo function as a lifestyle for many Playa Del Carmen residents, but it is also one of the city’s trendiest boutique hotels. Its boutique hotel status has served to rapidly expand the condo’s amenities to include optional resort-quality services for its permanent residents.
The El Taj Playa Del Carmen Condo Units
There are two distinct addresses for 57 units at the El Taj, the El Taj Oceanfront (directly on the beach) and the El Taj Beachside (directly in front, on the other side of 1 Calle Sur / 1 Street South). The majority of the units at the Oceanfront are used as hotel rentals, meaning the addresses that become available at the El Taj are for the El Taj Beachside.
Units at either address are bathed in luxury, and leverage a rustic-chic design philosophy. The interior and exterior of the condos are designed with Balinese design concepts, and utilize rich dark woods and intricate decorative accents.
Amenities at the El Taj
There are more amenities at the El Taj Playa Del Carmen than any other condo development in the city, thanks to the overnight, overwhelming popularity of the building’s condo hotel. The El Taj’s amenities have turned it into a one-stop vacation spot, with an on-site restaurant, on-site beach club, on-site full-service spa (which also do in-suite treatments!), beauty salon and more. As a resident of the El Taj you also gain access to Playa’s most exclusive fitness facility, The Gym—which is just a block away.
Life at the El Taj Playa Del Carmen is an aquatic one as not only does it sit on the beachfront giving you ample access to the ocean but it also has not one but two heated, designer swimming pools, an ‘aqua spa lounge’ and Jacuzzi (there are also private rooftop Jacuzzis included in their penthouse suites). There is a pool at each of the El Taj buildings, with their beachside location boasting of a black infinity pool surrounded by lush tropical gardens, and the Oceanfront location boasting of a tropical-inspired pool that is adjoined with the hotel’s Indigo Beach Club.
El Taj: The Location!
Not that you will ever tire of relaxing in El Taj’s natural beauty, but should you decide to wander out of your condo you have everything that Playa has to offer at your fingertips. Located in the heart of the entertainment district this address is close to many top restaurants, including the Blue Lobster, Diabilito Cha Cha Cha, Di Vino and many more. You’re also a stone’s throw from all the popular bars on Playa’s famous 12th Street.

I used American Realty to help me buy my condo in Playa del Carmen… The first thing that I would like to say is that the whole staff was incredibly helpful. Doing a real estate transaction in a foreign country can be a very daunting experience and I don’t think I would have gone through with it without all the information that I was given as they walked me through the process. From initially explaining my options and the process, to finding the actual condo (that I love) and closing the transaction, they were patient with all my questions and made me feel very comfortable with my decision. My condo is about 4 blocks from the beach and very near the center of town and I couldn’t be happier! My family loves coming to Playa del Carmen and now we have our own place when we visit. A condo in the Caribbean that we can call our own and one that makes me a decent income while we aren’t here. All in all, I couldn’t be happier with my experience and would highly recommend using American Realty to buy or sell any real estate in Playa del Carmen.
I am not one to sit down and do a review unless I feel it was worth the effort. I flew to PDC in hopes of meeting a real estate agent I had set up before flying down. Two days in, no word. I was out walking and stumbled on to a the American Realty office on 5th Ave. American Realty and met Matthew. (this is their satellite office) I told him my price range. Next day bam! Looking at units in my price range and not trying to up sell. Visited a couple buildings under construction and made my decision to buy in PDC. The size suited me best. He made this an incredibly EASY buy for me. He set up the meetings with the lawyer, notary and translator. He picked me up and drove me to the lawyer office and their own office for paperwork. People fear buying in a foreign country. Mexico is fast, safe and secure. Everything is laid out in front of you. Money is incredibly easy to transfer in escrow, this was my biggest fear. What if it disappears?? Well it doesn't. It goes to a US company then back to Mexico. Lawyers act on my behalf to pay the developer as per terms. Matthew made all of this incredibly easy. He is efficient, on time and knows this area. Follow up questions are answered promptly. Many agents get their commission and you never hear from them. I asked Matthew if he could drive to the condo to update me with some photos. No problem for him! That is customer service. I recommend any Canadian or foreigner to meet him if you are planning to invest in PDC or area. Dealing with a fellow Canadian made it much more enjoyable and trusting. I am happy with the end result and happy that I met him. Feb 8 2019

If you are looking for a property in Playa del Carmen, I would highly recommend American Realty! Theo and the office were brilliant in mapping out our needs and found a great property for us! Their services from the very first moment we met in their office on 5th Ave, till signing the contract were outstanding. They picked us up from the place we stayed at, drove us around introducing the different areas of Playa. Were accommodating and patient with our kids when we took them to view some of the properties. We got all the help we needed with the lawyers and managing the different bits of the contracting process. They have been taking care of us like old friends - and even now that the deal has closed they check in every once in a while, which is very nice. 🙂 So all in all - excellent service and great people! Thanks Theo and American Realty. 🙂 Szilvia & Zoltan - Nov 11 2019

My Wife and I worked with Theo during our house hunting trip in September 2019. Process was completed in one day. He showed us exactly what we were looking for in the price range requested. Did not waste our time. Offer made and accepted. Theo worked with us during the entire process lining up the legal team to help us through the process of purchasing property in Mexico. Theo has been there to help us with any and all questions we might have and has been there for us AFTER the sale with questions not related to the purchase of the property (getting a car, setting up WIFI, VPN, TV service, electric, etc). We got a great place and a new friend out of the deal. Highly recommend Theo and America Realty if you are buying property in Mexico. Feb 26 2020

Everyother agency turned us away and said that we could not find what we were looking for in our price range. We believed it until American Realty was recommended to us through a random encounter. Feeling defeated and thought we’d take one last shot we talked with one of the agents from Canada and within ten minutes after walking into his office he explained that he may have something. So we set up a viewing the next day and sure enough he found it! Hit it right on the head. Amazing job! I’d highly recommend their services for anyone interested in real estate in Playa Del Carmen.
