You can tell by the other reviews that you should totally stay here, so here are some things to know: *Lunch and alcoholic drinks during the day aren't included, but they are beyond reasonably priced and delicious. We did quite a bit of eating & drinking during a 5 day stay, and our bill was $175 usd. We were shocked...

My husband and I absolutely love Petit Lafitte! From the very beginning to the very end! When you walk in the doors the management staff greets you by your name (they actually take the time to remember your name)! Not only is it the management team, but also the restaurant staff, bar staff to the housekeeping staff know your name!...

We had a garden view room for our 10 day stay and everything was truly perfect. Our room was comfortable and clean. The food was delicious and very well served. The wonderful bar over looking the ocean was fun and the bartenders could not have been more friendly - they knew our names and favorite drinks after the first night....

This was mine and my girlfriend's third time coming to petit lafitte. It's still the best! So great to see all the same friendly people every year. It is a beautiful property, right on the beach. Great happy hour. We always meet friends from all over. Also this year our flight back home was cancelled because of a hurricane in...

Having really enjoyed our stay previously we decided to book again. Often, a return visit is never as good as the first, but this was not the case. It just got better. It is evident the staff are highly trained in customer service skills be it waiter, receptionist, gardener, room service operative etc. All exchange a cheery ola when you...

We are repeat customers at Petit Lafitte. My family is treated like family at Petit Lafitte, and we absolutely love our time spent here. The food was delicious, the bar and dining staff was spectacular, the ground keepers were amazing, and everyone overall is like a "well oiled machine". We did not want to leave, but look so very forward...

Great little place, really chilled, great bar with lovely drinks and huge range of beers. Room we had (not a bungalow) was basic but comfortable. Drinks very well priced. Breakfast good, dinner less so but nice no frills eating. Great staff. Great getaway. Sorry drive outside of playa del Carmen so nice and quiet. We would love to go again.

Petit Lafitte is at the end of a short, bumpy road, after other narrow roads, but it's so worth going there! The place is a gem, made moreso by the people. This was my 4th visit in 5 years; its the best! It must be a good place to work too, because I see the same waiters and bartenders and...

We stayed at Petit Lafitte for 3 days before going to Cozumel. Everyone was so nice and the place is so relaxing clean and tranquil. Would certainly go back if we are ever that way again. Our 3 days there was a great start to a great vacation.

About 30 minutes from Cancun airport, down a bumpy, winding road, lies a little piece of paradise. This was our first visit to Petit Lafitte and definitely will not be our last. From the moment that we were greeted by Davy, to the waiters who at the end of the week became our friends, we quickly became family. This was...

“Stay in the main building for tv and/or to save money. Garden bungalows for quiet. Beach bungalows if the view is super important to you.”

“My husband and I rented a private bungalow! #7 Our bungalow was always cleaned by noon to include fresh linens, towels, water, restocked fridge and most importantly, clean foot dipping water to keep the sand out and not in! Every one seems to tip their cleaning staff at the end of their stay as you always have the same housekeeper. The office will give you special envelopes for this gratuity.”
