This hotel is AMAZING. Its a very small resort, but it couldn't be any better. We went for our Anniversary and we're ready to go back! The grounds are gorgeous, the beach is breathtaking. They really do a good job of making and keeping the resort beautiful. Every single employee at this resort went out of their way to make... More

Just came back from our second visit to Petite Lafitte and already we can't wait to return. My husband and I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Mexico. We were a part of a pretty large group this time and a bit to handle at times I'm sure but the Petite Lafitte team did so with grace and charm. Being... More

If you are looking for an amazing location, laid back and relaxing, this is the right spot. Our daughter loved the pool, beach and hammocks in the coconut grove. The bungalows have all you need basic but prime location. Staff friendly, happy and helpful. Food was good and the drinks fantastic none of that syrupy water downed awful cocktail-fresh squeezed...

My husband and I stayed at Petit Lafitte for 5 nights. We had a good time. The location is really nice. The hotel is right on the beach, which is gorgeous and exactly as pictured. The ocean directly in front of the hotel is a rather damaged area of coral reef, but if you take some time to look (you’ll... More

We loved everything about our stay at Petit Lafitte. We had the beauty and charm of a resort with delicious food without the huge monstrosity and cheesiness of a big all inclusive. The staff loves to engage in conversation and the quiet well taken care of beach was a delight.

Got married in Playa Del Carmen and decided to stay at Petit Lafitte. All the guests who came to the wedding, around 40 people, all stayed at Petit Lafitte and loved it! Service and food were amazing and the staff is very friendly. I want to go back asap!

Quaint place on the ocean. Very enjoyable with a pleasant and accommodating staff and good food. Reasonably priced so cannot ask for more. Moderate budget with above average amenities and accommodations.

I loved the feel of this place. Its small, peaceful, laid back, the staff are nice and helpful, its right on the beach, there's a lovely breeze. There's not much to do -- which is just what we were looking for! We stayed for 3 nights in May. We splurged for an oceanfront bungalow, and it was lovely walking right... More

Awesome resort, can't say enough good things about it. Beautiful location, great food, wonderful staff. We stayed 5 days and loved every minute. Staff goes above & beyond every day. They work really hard to remember & greet you by name when they see you. We had the half-board plan that included breakfast & dinner. The food was fantastic! Wonderful... More
