Just back from our second visit to Petit Lafitte and had a wonderful stay. We really like this hotel. Travelling with 2 children aged 8 and 5 who adore the pool, ocean front lunches, animal sanctuary and the kind staff. Breakfast is included in the price of the room and is delicious. We didn't eat the evening meal (also included)... More

From begining to end this place was a delight. Caring & friendly staff, good food, simple amenitties but a great value. The live entertainment every night was a total bonus. Plenty of beach chairs, shade & hammocks to relax. This is not the place if your looking to party. And not walking distance to any shops, markets or restaurants. Its... More

First of all, let me say that the glowing reviews here are not exaggerated. I recently stayed five nights with my 19 year old daughter. Our number one priority was the beach and we were not disappointed. Simply gorgeous. Not crowded. Great for walking. Never had a problem finding a beach chair in the shade. Entry for swimming was just... More

I was just there in March with my sister, brother in law and nephew...everything turned out great! We first decided to come here last year around December and we knew we had to come back after our first stay! When we came back, the staff greeted us unlike any hotel I've ever stayed at..with kindness and open arms. The place... More

Petit Lafitte is a small, private paradise. This was my 2nd time going - I also went in 2012. The rooms are charming - simple, rustic, right next to the beach. The food? DELICIOUS. Scrumptious! Local cuisine - fresh fruit and juices, tasty fish and meats. I seriously miss the chilaquiles for breakfast - AND the shrimp tacos for lunch.... More

I just returned from my first visit to Petit Lafitte - my second, over Christmas and New Year Holiday, is already booked! I just could not leave this wonderful place without making sure there would be a room for me. Everything was wonderful - the food, the drinks, the pool, the beach, the room, the massage - and most of... More

We are a young couple (30 and 32), with a one year old baby. We stayed at the Petit Lafitte in April 2014. This was our second visit to this hotel, but won't be our last! Our last visit was in April 2011, despite the fact that 3 years had gone by, I was amazed to find ALL the same... More

We stayed at Petit in March- this was our second visit. Both times, the staff overwhelmed us with their kindness, humor, efficiency and least expected of all, their friendship. I've never stayed somewhere where the staff knew our names within one day. They cared about what we needed and got to know us as people. This is very rare, if... More

Excellent staff. Polite and helpful. Quaint little resort right on the beach. We stayed in one of the bungalows and it was perfect. I am extremely picky about hotels/resorts and this rustic little cabin was perfect for what it was. By that I mean, if you are looking for a rustic little bungalow at a small resort, this place is...
