My wife and I stayed in a bungalow for five nights and were very pleased with Petit. From the moment we arrived the service was top notch. David is the leader and he takes charge to make sure you are completely satisfied.
Our bungalow was an "ocean view" and after reviewing all bungalow locations we determined that the "ocean view" was best for us. "Ocean Front" are a few feet closer to ocean but we didn't feel that it would be worth the upgrade of approximately $50/day. On the other hand we did like to view the water while reading out on front porch and thus glad we opted to do the "ocean view" upgrade.
The food was excellent. Breakfast options never got old. Great fresh squeezed juices, traditional breakfast dishes, and authentic Mexican dishes were all tasty. Lunch was affordable and amazing. Dinner options were limited to two entres per evening but this allows chefs to focus on perfecting their offerings. We felt like the food was better than other all inclusives chains we have stayed at including Paradisus and Sandals. We did not have anything but top notch service from all waiters.
Beach walks every day for excercise allowed us to explore area and we did feel that petit's beachfront was the best. The beach bar serves great drinks. The mango daiquiri went down too easy. Also the margaritas were excellent. All drinks are extremely affordable which is great since they are not included in the hotel package. They run a tab for your room and at checkout you see the damage. It was less than we thought!
We'll be back!
Overall we loved it and plan to come back next year and bring the little ones. As for this trip it was a nice romantic getaway.
