My boyfriend and I spent the last few days of our Thanksgiving trip at Petit Lafitte. It is truly a hidden gem near Playa del Carmen. The restaurant and bar is open air and rustic yet well appointed. Every employee was extremely helpful and would go out of their way to ensure one’s comfort. Kudos to the parents traveling with children as there was not specific children activities like one would find at a resort; the children were well behaved. They offer yoga each morning and opportunity for Temezcal which is an experience for a sensory renewal. I highly recommend Petit Lafitte. They are proud of their property and it shows in their customer service. Simple elegance, exquisitely executed.

Our fourth visit to Petit Lafitte, we missed last year with the virus stuff. The low key resort still has the friendly vibe which we love. They have adjusted their business model by adding a local beach club. While I understand the need for income, the beach club doesn't add anything positive to the resort feeling. We tried a beach view room rather than a bungalow this year and loved watching the sunrise each morning. The only drawback was poor wifi service in building 5. The food was very good, especially the buffets on the beach. Looking forward to returning next year.

Family trip with our 3 year old. Not the best experience. Wi-Fi sucks. Poor service, had to always look for a waiter to order. Also, were not very friendly. They say breakfast and dinner are included, however the only drink included is Water and black coffee. Besides alcoholic beverages you pay for milk for your cereal and juice. Room cleaning was not top notch. Never changed floor mat towel. Coffee pot dirty. Cute.. but will not be staying there again. All inclusive is the way to go! IBEROSTAR ❤️

We always have a wonderful experience when we come here. The staff always is super friendly and goes above and beyond. We love that it isn’t a commercialized resort very mom and pop and they sure do make you feel welcome. We will definitely be returning. When relaxing is your priority this is definitely the spot for you. Very quiet and family friendly, we have been here as an adults only trip and with the children and everyone loves it.

Petit Lafitte did it again! My husband and I keep going back! This hotel is one of the hidden gems of the Caribbean. If you are looking for a hotel that provides you tranquility, name recognition with no required arm bracelet, service that goes above and beyond, look no further. Give it a try....I can promise you that you won't regret it!

Our mother-daughter retreat was wonderful at Hotel Petit Lafitte...once we got there. We couldn't have chosen a more ideal spot, even coming from the West Coast. We felt enveloped by exquisite hospitality, excellent food, and extra opportunities like the beach massage, the daily yoga sessions and the sound-bath experience. Elsa is a gifted yoga instructor, an unexpected treasure! Even though we were delayed in arrival until 9:30pm the thoughtful staff saved us dinner and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We will return... (The shuttle was a bit clunky and confusing; it would be good if the hotel had an auxiliary service from CUN as back-up; the hotel was apologetic, and more than made up for the glitch.)

This was my 3rd time visiting this year alone. We've enjoyed Petit for 4 years total now. This trip was mother/child trip with a classmate of my daughters and his mom. There's nothing I can say that I haven't already said. This continues to be our favorite place on Earth.

We just got back form a stay at Petite La Fitte with 2 other couples. I was disappointed as we drove up as we stayed at a similar kind of place in Playa for years that was beautiful. The resort looked run down and unkempt as we pulled up. As we walked in we saw that the main dining area was closed for renovations. As we went further back we saw the pool which was small but ok and another dining area outside by the bar. It was cute. We stayed in an oceanfront bungalow. It was nice clean and the AC worked well. the beach are was very disappointing as it was small and rocky. We had to walk down the beach to be able to get in the water. The beach chairs were not the most comfortable. Food was not great, although burgers and fries were great. We ended up eating dinner out about 3 nights. The service at first was very good because there were quite a few people there. By the weekend we were the only people there and the service went downhill. We felt like we were a bother to the waitstaff. Drinks were fair, hardly any alcohol in them. If we had not been with two other couples we would have been quite bored as there was absolutely nothing going on at the resort. It is very rustic so if you want a no frills laid back place this is for you. We ended up eating all our meals at the outside area and got bitten up by mosquitos. La Petite is a no frills, laid back, rustic place. It has great potential but needs major renovations.
