My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights of our vacation. We liked how the hotel was not so commercial. It reminded me of coming to a home rather than a huge resort. The arrangement of the buildings also allowed our room to be just steps from the pool and beach. Our stay also included breakfast, which was very... More

This is our second time at Petit and it was as enjoyable as our first. We stayed at one of the beachside bungalows (highly recommend this if you can get one) with my wife and 2 children (12 & 16). They can provide a rollaway bed if you ask. It is great being able to walk out to the beach... More

The location is quite hidden from the hustle and bustle of playa del Carmen and what you get is a real beach experience. The bungalows are awesome just steps away from the sand and a hundred feet from the beach.

We arrived by taxi down a dirt road that was fenced off and being used by construction trucks. The map looked like the hotel would be closer to town, but was a 20 minute cab ride. It was an extra $40 a day to add my 14 year old son so he could eat breakfast, which I thought was very... More

This was our first time here and probably our fifth time to the Playa area in the last 10 years. If you are looking for a quiet, very slow paced place, this is the place for you. We stayed in one of the bungalows which was very close to the beach. A/C was great, Bathroom good. Food was pretty good.... More

We have to thank the Petit Lafitte family again for giving us a truly unforgettable experience. This review could never express our gratitude and everlasting effect and memories that we took with us home. Every detail was executed flawlessly, and the jovial staff whose been there at least 10 years made it more of a family affair. You could not... More

The Petit Laffite is a smallish, charming, professionally run hotel. It's small enough that it has a bed and breakfast feel. You get to know many of your fellow guests who come from seemingly everywhere. Likewise, the staff is relatively small, incredibly hard working, and very friendly. The staff, not only the front desk, are an excellent resource for local... More

this hotel was a pleasant suprise. it was much more than i expected for the price range. this is a small intimate resort where you get to know your fellow guest at the beach bar. the grounds are very well maintained with a nice relaxing pool right in the middle of everything. the rooms are good sized with a tiled...

It was awesome to walk onto the white sand straight from our bungalow. The hotel staff were very accommodating. The hammocks outside our door were actually comfortable and the best way to get lost in our summer novels. Three of us enjoyed a relaxing massage on the beach. Our meals were fresh and delicious very night. I would recommend Petit... More

This is our second time here and it never disappoints. Private, secluded and quiet little resort North of Playa. Pristine beach to swim and snorkel, uncrowded pool and good breakfast and dinner selections. David, Luis, Lorena, Javier and the rest of the staff are very friendly and attentive. They even prepared a delicious fruit cake with a candle for our... More
