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

This past May, my wife and I returned from a 9 night visit to Petit Lafitte - our home away from home. We are one of the many return guests that also spent time at the old Capitan Lafitte and Kailuum. Many of the same staff that provided top notch service there are still present today at Petit Lafitte. In... More

We had a king size bed with two side tables (lamps on both tables). There was a ceiling fan in the room. There... More

We stayed here for a few days after staying in Downtown Playa Del Carmen for a friend’s birthday during the BPM Festival. My girlfriend and I wanted a laid-back place where we could just relax on the beach in peace and quiet. This was definitely the right choice! The minute we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly staff.... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Petit Lafitte and we availed their honeymoon package. I can say that we had a great honeymoon at this hotel. The staffs were very accommodating and each of them knew our names. The food was great and the romantic dinner we had as part of the honeymoon package was just beyond sumptuous!... More

Overall this was a great hotel. We went the last week of May and it was hot and humid! The real feel temperature was 102 most days. There is AC in the rooms but everything else (restaurants, bar, etc) is outdoors. There is a nice breeze so that helps. We stayed in the hotel section (not the bungalows) and had... More

Simple Review: Food - excellent - cant beat the quality of breakfast and dinner for all inclusive - beach bbq with Mayan show was the best - delicious! Lunch - EXCELLENT - it is not included but they are very honest and fair with pesos to dollar conversion - it was the best Mexican food we tried even after visiting... More

Hola JoshC, We’re glad you really enjoyed Petit Lafitte. Thank you for sharing your views with others and for all the encouraging words. I just wanted to stress your words “island feeling” because among all the large concrete all inclusive, new trends and competition, Petit Lafitte strives to conserve that natural, “island feel” you talk about. We hope you find... More

Just back from our first trip to Petit Lafitte, six nights, which we picked because of the consistently glowing TripAdvisor reviews. The reviews are right! Beautiful location, above average resort food (lunch at the bar grill and soups in the dining room are especially good, lobster dinners can be special-ordered), easy in/out from Cancun. Staff (almost all male) are outstanding,... More

This is the best! Forget about the huge all-inclusive hotels.... Petit Lafitte is the way to go for an unforgettable stay in Playa del Carmen. Great food, great staff and superb service. We stayed in bungalow 11, and even though I was hoping for the Ocean Front one, this one had a great view as well... Clean, spacious, with A/C... More

I really enjoyed our stay at Petit Lafitte. The location was great, right on the beach. Included breakfast and dinner were always on point which was perfect as we had day trips planned each day. It's not a 5 star and the rooms aren't super fancy, but man, for the price it is absolutely fantastic. I hear think there are... More
