We stayed here for the first time and were pleasantly surprised. We booked a garden view room and ended up in building 1 on the 2nd floor. We agreed that the room location was one of the least desirable in the entire resort. The main dining area was right in front of our patio and it did stay noisy until... More

Stayed at this Hotel for 2 weeks in February. If you want a relaxed laid back holiday with good hosts and staff this is the place to stay. Food good and alternative meals for evening by arrangement if booked before 1.00pm. Beach area superb served by a bar for drinks and lunchtime meals at reasonable cost. Only 60 bedrooms and... More

We stayed at Lafitte during Boston's February school break, and it was our 10th or 11th visit going back to when it was known as "Capitan Lafitte".There is a reason for our having visited here for over over 20 years, which is the locale and the atmosphere. If you need blaring music, want to impersonate a sardine interjected on a... More

We stayed in Petit Lafitte after a long trip around South Mexico and we were very content in general with the facilities and location. The rooms are comfortable and big in a not too crowded or too touristic environment, which was our key demand, we didn't want a large touristic complex. It has two restaurants, one for lunch and drinks... More

Rooms are fine, you don't have to have a bungalow. If you book a room, see if you can get something in the 500 block of rooms facing the bar - you can pick up the bar wifi from your room if you do, and you will have an ocean view from your balcony. Never miss breakfast. It's outstanding. Endless... More

My husband and I spent 9 nights here over Christmas with our three children aged 5.5, 3 years and two months and 14 months in a bungalow set back a little bit from the beach - number 15. The food was great as was the attentive service. Javier, Jesus, Victor, Giovani, David, the lovely fellow who cleaned our room I... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Petit Lafitte. The meals were good, our cabin was comfortable and cleaned very well daily, and we enjoyed the porch. We loved the small amount of people and the fact that our beach was not crowded. The staff cleaned our beach every morning. We walked a couple of miles along the beach in... More

We spent five days at the Petit and did not leave the hotel except to go to the beach, as relaxing as is possible. The staff are great and the breakfasts wonderful, the bar and deck is as good as it gets, if you want a beach holiday you will do well to do better.

The small intimate atmosphere is accentuated by David and his staff. They attend to all wants and needs, putting the customer first while maitaining a professional and caring approach. Dining was wonderful. The chefs and their staff are to be commended. We were greeted with a smile from each and every employee, with many of them going out of their... More
