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...

I just got home from Petit Lafitte, this hotel is nestled away from all the big hotels and it is the most beautiful treasure we found. We stayed in one of the bungalows, it was being in your home right on the beach. The food was amazing and the service is outstanding. Free internet access made connecting with the outside... More

I chose Petite Lafitte because I wanted to stay in a Bungalow. They do have hotel rooms, though I was looking for a different vacation experience. I read the reviews on Tripadvisor, and hence my choice Petite Lafitte. I cannot say enough for the warm welcome from Luis the personal assistance from every one and the lovely accommodations. Our bungalow... More

Just returned from Petit Lafitte. Stayed at this hotel from 4.02.14 to 4.10.14. Great vacation. This is a small resort hotel on one of the best beaches I have been anywhere. We stayed in the 2nd building from the beach. It does not matter where you stay at this resort, you are under 1 minute walk away from a great... More

Lisa and I stayed a week at Petit Lafitte at the suggestion of a friend, and we were so very happy with almost everything. We had been looking for the perfect spot to get away from the snow and cold, and Playa Del Carmen in February sounded devine. We first went the route of looking at all the big all-inclusives,...

We had been here once before, for only 2 nights, and we got invited to join a wedding reception happening that night! Almost everyone there had been coming back for years. This visit was for 3 nights, on the tail end of a seminar week at another hotel in Playa. Our next visit will definitely be for longer. So many... More

We had a nice six night stay at Petit Lafitte which included incredible views of the azure ocean, good food and friendly staff. Most people miss the pleasant small private zoo (well kept exotic birds and a few animals just next door, ask the guard). Our only complaint was the rooms. Although clean, they are old and not remodeled (our... More
