Just back from our first trip to Petit Lafitte, six nights, which we picked because of the consistently glowing TripAdvisor reviews. The reviews are right! Beautiful location, above average resort food (lunch at the bar grill and soups in the dining room are especially good, lobster dinners can be special-ordered), easy in/out from Cancun. Staff (almost all male) are outstanding,... More

This is the best! Forget about the huge all-inclusive hotels.... Petit Lafitte is the way to go for an unforgettable stay in Playa del Carmen. Great food, great staff and superb service. We stayed in bungalow 11, and even though I was hoping for the Ocean Front one, this one had a great view as well... Clean, spacious, with A/C... More

I really enjoyed our stay at Petit Lafitte. The location was great, right on the beach. Included breakfast and dinner were always on point which was perfect as we had day trips planned each day. It's not a 5 star and the rooms aren't super fancy, but man, for the price it is absolutely fantastic. I hear think there are... More

We love Lafitte, we first stayed many years ago at the original Capitan Lafitte and loved it. We love Petit too. We've stayed in both the ocean view rooms and cabinas. As all reviews state, the staff are exceptional. The food is good and plentiful. The beach is wonderful and there are plenty of chairs and palapas. We were in... More

My 50th Birthday celebration, which was to be with a good friend, and turned out to be just me. I love this place, the people are beautiful, I simply loved the Bungalow. This is my second time here. I was there for 10 days in April. Ivan and his lovely hotel staff are beautiful, welcoming people. The resort is very... More

We stayed for 5 nights last week and everything was just as the reviews state. Very relaxing, right on the beach, very quiet and just a perfect vacation for us. If you are looking for crowds, noise, large resort, etc. then this is not the place for you! We stayed in the premium king room and it was great. Everyone... More

The entrance to this hotel is not impressive at all. Now that I have stayed there, I actually think that is actually a good thing. The real treasure is what is located beyond the entrance. The beach bungalow was large. The A/C worked great. The bed was comfortable. The pool is large and refreshing. To be honest, I spent much... More

The service was amazing, everyone was so welcoming and friendly. I would not stay in a bungalow again for several reasons. I do not think they are worth the extra price involved. The food was excellent as well.

We stayed for five nights at this lovely quiet hotel. Next time we would spend a bit more to stay in a bungalow. Pros: the staff were all extremely helpful and accommodating (I broke a toe during my stay and they gave me ice as many times as I needed :), newer firm bed, the Wed & Sat special meal... More

My husband and I had been to Petit Lafitte maybe 5 years ago and have been dreaming about returning ever since. We came back April 2 and our memories were accurate! The only drawback this trip was the week was apparently a common school vacation week, so there were lots of kids at the hotel. This mean that the pool... More
