Coming from Italy and first time in the area we reviewed a number of options in and close to Playa and ended up selecting this beautiful gem. Petit Lafitte is right on the beach with a manageable number of rooms and bungalows with great style. Staff is extremely kind and attentive making you feel truly at home. To the extent... More

Petit Lafitte is a relatively small hotel (30 rooms and around 25 bungalows) that is dedicated to give their guests an excellent stay. ALL employees are very friendly and I really felt like at home with my son. I would love to come again as Petit Lafitte really is outstanding in friendliness and service. Petit Lafitte is the ideal place... More

We had a great time at Petit Lafitte. This is a small resort that never felt crowded. We had a cute bungalow that was nicely air conditioned and well maintained. The staff is excellent and goes above and beyond to see to your needs - very friendly. Very nice pool, and right on the beach if you prefer the ocean.... More

We loved our stay at this hotel. Almost everything was perfect, really friendly staff, a great beach, very tasty mexican Food, a nice room. However, at the beach, the Relaxing atmosphere was a bit interrupted by the gas smell causing from the many many jetskis driving relatively closely to the beach. The price per night is quite hight

We just stayed at PL from Aug. 4 to Aug.12. This is our second time at PL, in two years. Everything was great again. The resort has a relaxing and calm atmosphere with natural surroundings. The weather was perfect, sunny with a nice breeze. The beach was great as usual. It is long and you can walk both directions for... More

We stayed here with our family of 6, comprising of three generations: college students, parents, grandparents. We had a fabulous stay. This is a small resort right on the beach, which is wonderful. None of the crowds of the other resorts we walked past on the beach. We stayed in three of the bungalows which sit right on the sand,... More

We stayed here for 9 nights in July, traveling with our neighbors. They had vacationed here a year and a half ago and had been eager to return ever since. Everything they told us was absolutely true. Petit Lafitte is a paradise. There were 4 adults and 5 kids total (aged: 12, two 10 year olds, 7 and 4). Our... More

We just returned from Playa Del Carmen and a week stay at the Petit Lafitte. I intentionally chose this resort because of the trip advisor reviews regarding the smaller size of the resort and the more personal feel. We were not disappointed! We were very glad we chose this resort instead of the large all inclusives! We were very pleased... More

I believe this was my 4th trip to Petit Lafitte and as always, had a wonderful time. All of the staff works really hard to ensure you have a fun and comfortable stay. The food is still amazing and I would highly recommend staying in the ocean front bungalows, but friends stayed in the hotel and enjoyed their stay just... More
