Found Petit Lafitte on Trip Advisor, booked direct with hotel, and stayed 4 nights. This hotel is not one of those mega hotels you usually find in this area, but a relatively small comfortable hotel. On the beach. Quiet. Just what we were looking for. We spent two nights, then picked up our friends at Cancun airport, returning from Canada.... More

How you will feel about this spot will depend upon what is important to you. If you like a self-contained place with good service, this is the place for you. Because it is located far from town, it is calmer and prettier, but offers less access to other restaurants and nightlife. The included breakfasts and dinners are better than cruise... More

We stayed in a Ocean View Bungalow & I would highly recommend Bungalows over the other rooms. The entrees are limited in the restaurant but the food is good & authentic, the breakfast is kind of mexican... More

If you want to be right near the beach, this is the place for you. We stayed at Petit Lafitte in July 2016 and had a fantastic time. The staff was excellent and the food was delicious. We had an Ocean View Bungalow and it was perfect!!! This place is truly amazing.

We just got home from 5 nights at Petite Lafitte. We can't wait to return. From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel welcome and made sure we had everything we needed. We stayed in a Bungalow which was wonderful. Quiet night's sleep. The bird and animal sanctuary connected to the property is wonderful. Got to feed a... More

My family and I (wife and three teenagers) had a great stay at Petit Lafitte. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. David the concierge took care of our every need and arranged multiple excursions for us. Food, beach, and bar were all great. Definitely recommend this resort. However, if you are looking for a large party type resort this... More

In an area literally surrounded by colossal resorts, this small, well run, friendly, unassuming, gem really stands out. We stayed in a bungalow steps away from the beach for 3 days before going to a 5 star all-inclusive for the rest of our stay in the area. It's in a wonderful location. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly in... More

If your plan is to be right by the water please book a room at Petit Lafitte. If you want to ride a golf cart, or literally hike to enjoy the water, then go to a resort. It you want to eat every meal fresh made from scratch and cooked by talented chefs please book at Petit Lafitte. If you... More

Dear C.S. Clear and to the point! Thank you for your brief review. It sure helps differentiate the Petit Lafitte experience from massive tourism that has spread along the coast. We hope your future travels are filled with satisfying experiences and hopefully, you will consider visiting us a second time!? Warm Regards, Iván Fuentes. More
