We loved the hotel, the rooms are simple but clean. The servise is excellent and courtius. But if you like a big hotel with disco's and pool games and loud music this hotel is not for you. Hotel Petit Lafitte is secluded , small and located on the beach. The food is delissius and every night something different. It's possible... More

I usually don't write reviews but I had such an incredible experience here that I had to comment on it. My family and I just came back home from vacation after staying at Petit Laffitte and we already miss the staff and excellent service they provided! Particularly, Jesus Pastrana, one of of their staff members, went above and beyond to... More

clean, great food, great beach, great staff, what more can you ask for. We rented a van and there are good golf courses, sights, and shopping nearby. Varied menu each day and is all inclusive. Thanks for a great stay

This lovely small resort away from the high-rise hotels and clatter of Cancun is immensely rewarding. The beach is sublime, the swimming pool very attractive and seldom used, the bar adjacent to the pool lively and the drinks first rate, the rooms pleasant and beautifully attended. Above all the staff is marvelous: courteous, lively, and fully accommodating. They interact easily... More

We were looking for a low-key non-mega resort for our visit to Playa Del Carmen and Petit Lafitte was everything I hoped for and more. The beach is so beautiful, for the first 24 hours I felt like I was in a dream. I can't believe how affordable it is to sleep literally steps from the ocean, which is really... More

We stayed in one of the bungalow's on the beach at this lovely all-inclusive resort. The staff were just wonderful and generous of their time to show you around or to help you in any way. The food was great and plenty of it. Lunch was at the beachfront bar and grill so you could enjoy a light bite in... More

I spent this last Christmas and the Christmas before as well as a short stay at Petit Lafitte in April of 2014. One of the MANY things I love about Petit is that many families come over and over every year..... so it was fun to see people come in each day that I met last year. The food is... More

Like a lot of others, we are long term return guests (some go back more than 20 years). It is a little gem: small, quiet, serene. If you're looking for casinos, Wayne Newton shows and tennis courts, look elsewhere. But if you want peace and quiet, a friendly/family staff, and great food in a tropical paradise, this place is for... More

Read all the positive reviews. They are all correct. We have been coming to Playa since 1984 and Petit Lafitte has all the elements that made us fall in love with this area back then. But visit SOON. Another large resort is going up next door on the north side. So like he rest of Playa.............so goes. The beach, food,... More

Our family -- three generations -- spent a week at La Petite Lafitte. The staff was excellent, the rooms comfortable and the food varied and interesting. David Herrera does a great job of helping the guests get the best of our their visit. We particularly appreciated the scale of the place -- small and cozy -- tucked in among the... More
