We stayed at the Petit Lafitte for a whole week and we enjoyed every minute of it. This is a small, boutique style hotel, where location and outstanding service made our vacation a memorable one. Our room, a wooden bungalow on the beach, had two queen beds and one extra single bed, a small fridge, spacious bathroom with all the... More

We stayed in Mexico for 2 weeks and we stayed here for 3 nights before returning home and I am so pleased we booked to stay in this place. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly and we really enjoyed our interactions with them. They were so attentive and are an asset to this hotel. We stayed in a hotel... More

Private Beach. Though encapsulated between two Giants of the industry, its shared and long enough for a good walk. Had a terrific upgraded room with a fantastic view of the ocean, breezy balcony and windows. Great Bar and Attendants. I would have preferred a bit more choice in the restaurant dinner menu though.

The Petit Lafitte staff was awesome and made my wife and I felt very welcome. We rented a bungalow and it was great to be able to walk into the sand! Rocks and seaweed made water entry tough. A short walk up the beach and entry was much easier. The halfboard food was very tasty and we ate pretty much... More

This was both our first time to Mexico and Petit Lafitte. My wife always look for places we can spend a week in the summer. We look for quiet, no crowds, good food, water and a view. This place fits the bill! Service: This was completely amazing. You get individual treatment 24/7. They are not obtrusive, but always polite. They... More

I just returned from a vacation at Petit Laffite, and i must say, this place earned a special place in my heart. I had bungalow #1, right on the beach, and the place was perfect. I'm a creature of comfort, so having A/C 24/7 was priceless for both my girlfriend and I. We came here after spending a few days... More

I would prefer to say good things about this property but I wouldn't stay there again and I rely heavily on other people's reviews so need to be honest. The first room we were put in had a sink that not only leaked but flooded our floor and down to units below us while we were at dinner. They nicely... More

We had the best room in the house, fabulous view, clean, food was delicious, very friendly staff, did their best to make us feel at home! The ambiance of this resort was awesome. Never a crowd, in fact we loved the fact that that there was not one time we had to wait for anything, even though it appeared to... More

Liked this hotel, although probably wouldn't stay here again. If you want the ability to go out and about and do things, it's a decent length away from Playa itself (about 7km along the beach), so walking takes a while depending on the tides etc, and a cab was about $30 each way which we thought was steep so didn't...

This is our favorite place. My girls and I love the environment quite, friendly , secluded. The food is delicious especially the fresh Coco from the trees. Dinner is wonderful a candlelit sit down dinner with all the visitors. The beach is quite not the typical tourist attraction. We plan to come back yearly ... It's just a Sweet Secret... More
