Our daughter's wedding was held here. We and our guests had the entire place to ourselves for the weekend, occupying 40/50 rooms. Their wedding/event planner did a fantastic job in helping us plan the wedding and put us in contact with vendors for music, airport pickups, videographer, hair/make-up, etc... They were a real pleasure to work with. We had preliminary... More

We had a fantastic 4 night stay here, as the final part of our honeymoon. We stayed in a beachfront bungalow, with a direct view onto the beach (but would happily stay in any of the bungalows in future). The dinners in the restaurant were great, and lunches at the bar were fantastic. The staff were all very helpful and... More

I visited this place with my son during a trip for my birthday earlier this year. I had not been back to Mexico for many years. I did very little research and took a punt in deciding to stay here, based upon its reviews and its position. I was pleased to find that his place delivered a quiet break with... More

Our family has been visiting Playa del Carmen for over 20 years and have stayed at Petit Lafitte several times. The staff is very attentive and treat us like family. The food is delicious and we really appreciate the vegetarian entrees. We love the bungalows and what can be better than a day on the beach at Petit Lafitte! It's... More

We came to Petit Lafitte 10/12 - 10/17. It was their low season and it was nice because I definitely needed an R&R and didn't want a big crowd around me. We stayed in room 205 Garden View - 3rd Floor. The room was clean and comfortable. They give you free water which is very nice with the humid weather.... More

Hola Skyhighpam, You noticed that coming in the low season was a great idea no?, Prices are more affordable, there is less people so, facilities are almost just for you, the staff has more time to take care of you, the ocean in the summer and late summer is mostly flat, making snorkeling, scuba or fishing great! ...yes there maybe...

Petit Lafitte was a great little place to stay. The Ocean View Bungalow was great for me and my 3 college buddies needs for a 4 night stay. I would recommend this place to anyone on a budget but who wants to experience Mexico at its finest!!

Dear Rutey17, We appreciate your kind words and you suggestion for new beds. We are still in process of changing all the beds in the standard section. But the goal is to be done before December 16. We just finished changing all the bathroom tiles in that section. We have been moving in the right direction but it takes a... More

My wife and I just got back from Petit Lafitte. We stayed in ocean front bungalow 9 for 8 nights. The room was basic and exactly what we were looking for. All of the rooms here will be excellent. All close to the beach with great views. We had our wedding in Playa Del Carmen back in February. We stayed... More

Hola Scott G. We remember you and your family well, we were wondering, honey moon with baby? I guess it was something that had to be postponed from the original plan. We are so glad that you still did it and chose Petit Lafitte as your pace. As you were able to see, this is a great place to relax,... More

My mom and I spent 4 nights in an ocean view bungalow at Petit Lafitte and had an amazing time. If you are looking for a fancy five star resort or a massive all inclusive, then Lafitte is probably not the right choice for you. But, if you are looking for a laid back retreat with friendly people and great... More

We went on a family vacation for Christmas to Petit Lafite and we were blown away by the hospitality of the staff and the beauty of the surroundings. David the concierge made everything so easy for us, from arranging transportation to reserving a great romantic dinner that we were able to enjoy our last night. Talk about the perfect closing...
