I took my Father to Petit a couple of weeks ago for his birthday and everything was perfect. Unlike most hotels along the beach in Playa, Petit is a smaller more intimate setting where all of the staff knows you by name. The food is amazing! The bar is amazing! The beachfront is beautiful! Unlike some beachfront properties, Petit's staff...

Daughters wedding - 90 guests - had entire resort. Everyone loved it - personal attention, great entertainment, good food. Right on beach, beach bar, open air dining room. Much prefer for wedding over large resorts where people get lost in crowd.

I was there with a group of about 24 women for a fitness retreat and it was amazing. This small resort covered all the bases. Awesome food, excellent service and great rooms. Located right on the water and the pool and restaurant was right outside the room. It was super quiet and affordable. I need to work while I am...

This was our 24th visit to Petit Lafitte, counting the times we visited Capitán Lafitte before it closed. Many of the same wonderful staff members are still there, the food is amazing, and the accommodations are modest but very comfortable. If you're looking for a place to totally unwind and enjoy the magnificent Mayan Riviera without the feeling of Cancún,...

Loved this place. Attended a wedding there. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are very nice, very clean, but no frillish. But who cares when you're going to spend all your time at the beach or in the pool? A great bar right near the ocean, and tons of fun activities to do in the area. Restful hammocks...

Nicely intimate resort with exceedingly kind, witty and caring staff. The bartenders and servers were all delightful. Ivan also made the wedding of our niece and her fiancé go beautifully. Highly recommended!

Accommodated a big group for a wedding and we had the place to ourselves. Bungalow was quaint and quiet. Beach was excellent. Breakfast and dinner were included- breakfast was great but dinner menus were a little strange. We had BBQ one night and that was the best dinner by far. Massages were $30 and beers were $2!!! Restaurant staff was...

We stayed at Petit Lafitte for a wedding and everyone has mentioned the staff was phenomenal. Great food and drinks (which were very reasonably priced) and the property is beautiful. We stayed in bungalow 10 which was a perfect distance from the beach and the rest of the property. The staff were really wonderful – warm, kind and very attentive....

First, if you are looking for a party hotel with on-going activities and late nights at the bar - this is not the place for you. However, if you are looking for a place that you can truly rest and relax - I can't think of a better place. Like many reviewers have said, it really is a hidden gem...
