What a wonderful small hotel! We stayed in an ocean view room (the bungalows looked very inviting, we will choose them next) and the view was great. A very relaxed, laid back experience. Good food, good drinks and a wonderful, warm staff. The beach front was immaculately groomed and we never had an issue with chairs at the beach or... More

My new wife and I recently stayed at this wonderful place sun-fri may 2014. First of all, the staff here was extraordinary. They were super friendly with fast, great service. The rooms had been very well taken care of: cleaned every day and the a/c worked great. The food at night was 5 star. It was usually a three course... More

I stayed a couple nights here with my boyfriend. It was perfect-- beautiful, serene, not crowded, and had delicious food and drinks. We stayed in a bungalow, which offered optimal privacy, and quick/easy access to the beach. The staff was welcoming and attentive, and overall, it was affordable. I highly recommend it to those looking for a no frills, and... More

Much more relaxing than the big resort hotels - this is a small resort and not over crowded. Nice room (we stayed in Room 401), with very good AC and a few TV channels. We had the breakfast included option, and the breakfast was good. Unlimited fresh fruit, cereal, pastries, coffee, and fresh squeezed juice. You could also order a... More

My sister and I along with our daughters (11 and 9) had a great experience at Petit Lafitte! The size of this resort was absolutley perfect. We loved a more intimate atmosphere and the family feel of Petit Lafitte. It was not over crowded, most times we were the only ones in the pool! The grounds/gardens were absolutley beautiful. The...

Petit Lafitte is the perfect getaway hotel if you wish to chill! I went solo and was very content with all! The staff was more than helpful and caring. The property is just beautiful and the food was just fine. I would have liked more possibilities at dinner. Otherwise, I will come back again. I would recommend renting a car... More

This place is perfect for a relaxing getaway which is exactly what my wife and I needed. As a same sex couple this hotel was more than welcoming. We stayed in a Garden View Bungalow and right out side our door was their bird refuge area. It is so wonderful that they have this on property. The birds are intercepted... More

My wife and I had a great time in Playa Del Carmen. We stayed a couple nights in the city and then the rest of the week at Petit Lafitte (4miles outside the city). While it was quiet, compared to the hotels near 5th ave., the friendly staff, good food and beautiful grounds made our stay memorable. Our room was... More

We enjoyed our stay for the cost. The area is very pretty. Good pizza place Coco Cabanas around the corner. Breakfast was good. Unfortunately dinner was unusually expensive for the meal. Other than that a great beach, pool is fine bar is on the sand. Rooms are fine, strong ac. Low tech door locks and safe.

My wife and I stayed here in June of 2014 for some relaxation. We got an ocean view bungalow (number 11). This is the place if you are looking for a relaxing vacation with a great beach, and are not into big crowds and huge resorts. The room was great - big king bed, very clean, great view of the...
