We had a marvelous stay in Playa del Carmen at the Petit Lafitte Hotel. Wonderful oceanfront hotel, excellent service and exquisite dining. I am so glad I chose this hotel for my kids' first experience to playa. This place is far from the crowds and will stay close to your heart.

How can anyone give this less than 5 stars? I will say, we rented the ocean front bungalow & being it was the closest to the ocean, but still next door to the ocean view, we would probably save a few bucks & get the ocean view bungalow next time. It was fun being #1 though! Step out on to... More

It was our 3rd time within 5 years at Petit Lafitte and it was as great as our first time. Friendly staff, nice and clean place, great food, good cocktails. When you want to have a quiet holiday and don't want to put your towel at the beach around 7 AM, this is the place to be. We certainly will... More

This place is kinda between all inclusive and hotels. Relaxed and unpretentious. Rooms are adequate. There were a lot of families there who were repeat guest. We were there for a short stay and only ate breakfast but no dinner.

From the moment we arrived to Petit Lafitte my daughter and I felt as if we were staying with friends in the lovely Playa del Carmen. Although we arrived late (as dinner was ending), we were told that the check-in process could wait until we'd had enjoyed a meal and relaxed for a few moments after our long flight. We... More

We visited in December and were very pleasantly surprised by this hotel! Our garden bungalow was just what we were looking for...peaceful, well appointed, and with room to just relax without the crowds. Food was very good, service was excellent, friendly and always helpful. There were plenty of activities either nearby or just a short distance away. We watched the... More

First of all, we will be coming back, and bringing friends and family. This is a small bungalow resort with great food, drinks, views and staff. Very laid back and we just chilled the entire time. Breakfast and dinner were included and quite often we didn't even order lunch because we were still full from the great breakfast. You can... More

Wonderful! Best Family Vacation We Have Ever Had! We have stayed in Playa del Carmen twice before and stayed at one of the large hotels, but this time we brought our 3 kids including a 2yr old and 4yr old. We wanted something smaller, more family friendly, that didn't have a party vibe. We read the great reviews and booked... More

I thought that overall the hotel was great. My only problem was that I wish there was more seafood on the dinner menu. They give you two options each night and while all of the food was good, I was looking forward to more seafood while on the coast. The lunch was pretty good too.
