February 7, 2012, 10:27 am (OFPR) — February 8, 2012 -- Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Vacation rentals are currently becoming a strong competition to traditional hotels, and recent Readers' Choice Awards 2012 by TripAdvisor, the world's largest travel site that is based on reader-generated travel advice, have selected El Taj Oceanfront Condo Hotel in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, as the second best hotel in Mexico, as well as one of the top 25 luxury and one of the top 25 trendiest hotels. The Award indicates the growth in popularity of condos or vacation homes that are now determined to prove equal, if not better, than all-inclusive resorts and upscale hotels.

"Perfect," says the short description of the hotel, and that sums it all up - the flawless service, the amenities, the ambience and the location. El Taj Oceanfront is the new gem in Playa del Carmen, located right on the sugary sand beach, and designed to organically blend into the breathtaking Mexican Caribbean landscape. At the same time, if you expect just a traditional hotel room, you will be pleasantly surprised. Instead of getting an average hotel room, guests of El Taj stay at posh suites with living rooms overlooking the turquoise see, enjoy multiple spacious bedrooms, each one of them with its own marble bathroom, and lounge on personal terraces or rooftops.

The condo features a smooth Bali-inspired design that seduces imagination by combining soft curves, natural materials and luscious tropical landscaping with soothing water features. Sergio Segura, an innovative Mexican architect, is blending the local tropical landscape, ultra-modern luxury, and his signature soft curves to create exquisite, luxury condominiums. The architect's vision was to create a modern luxury dwelling nestled in the comfort and tranquility of a tropical setting, and to organically blend in exotics and comfort, nature and modern design, tranquility and plentiful amenities.

As for the amenities, the development has a world-class gym, inspired and built by Vito Errico, the original founder of the famous Equinox sports clubs in the US. There are two upscale restaurants, a Spa and a Beauty Salon. Sprinkled with Balinese beds and umbrellas, Indigo Beach Club has become one of the most popular upscale beach clubs rivaling the best hotels. Playa del Carmen guests can find everything they need here.

When it comes to the interior design elements, El Taj Oceanfront features marble counter tops in kitchens and bathrooms, private terraces, the newest appliances, private elevators serving only two units, hurricane resistant window glass, Jacuzzis, private rooftop showers, as well as artwork imported from Bali, among many other things.

It looks like travelers have finally caught up on the trend, and started choosing spacious vacation rentals and condo hotels instead of traditional hotel rooms. Vacationers, especially families, are now looking for an authentic experience, privacy and value. "Home-like experience" and "more room" are listed as top reasons why vacationers think condo-hotels are more attractive than traditional hotels in a research done by HomeAway, Inc., the world's leading online vacation rental marketplace. Other advantages of vacation rentals are listed as "more privacy," "better value," and "more authentic travel experience."

The luxury condos are available for vacation rentals and also for sale. Rental rates start at $280 per night per 1 bedroom condo. The accommodations vary from 1 bedroom apartments to 3 bedroom penthouses.
