    We had an amazing stay here! I can't wait to go back. They decorated the room for my girlfriend's birthday. The parking garage was safe and convenient. We paid for the included breakfast, which was well worth it. The breakfast is located right on the beach. The staff was so nice and helpful our entire staff. Most of all the location was PERFECT!

    We really enjoy our stay at the Taj.... excellent cleanliness and overall was the best, I highly recommend it the best! The only thing is the beach but that is due to the weather and clima change... thanks to all the staff of the Taj for such a great service. Lucy Slominski from Houston Texas

    We truly enjoyed our stay. We were just down 2 months prior at an all inclusive but we wanted to explore this trip. Location of this hotel is thee best! Walking distance to downtown. The only negative I have to say is the beach, its basically nonexistent. But we read the reviews prior to booking and knew what to expect. No beautiful water view, boats all along the shoreline. Oh and the heated jacuzzi was not heated. Most probably won't care because its warm out but I wanted a hot tub at night.
