My wife and I just returned from a week at Petite LaFitte and will definitely be going back. The resort is small and intimate, which we definitely prefer. Many of the guests we met had been coming to the resort for years, it felt like its own little community. As one reviewer noted, many of the resorts that surround it...

This is a hidden gem. You are steps from the beach at all times. The grounds and buildings are lovely. The staff is very friendly and helpful. So glad I go the chance to stay here. Highly recommend!!!!

My wife and I have been coming to Lafitte for 35+years. It is our favorite place to be on this planet. These days there are many Mega-Resorts in the Yucatan but Lafitte is very different. Guests are always invited into the Lafitte family which has remained basically the same for generations. Everyone knows our names and we are always treated...

Loved this location. So many Playa resorts on a Vegas scale. Totally not our thing. This beach bungalow resort is really wonderful. We stayed in bungalow 3. We agreed that we loved that location but next time plan to be in bungalow 1 or 9 (even closer to the ocean) if possible. It was really a great visit. Love Norberto...

Every time we return to Petit Lafitte(and there have been many) we are never disappointed- The wonderful staff and their attention to their guests is something unique and special- We have made wonderful friends among all of the Lafitte family and those relationships bring us back year after year- The mega all inclusive resorts all around do not intrude into...

This is a new review of a previous visit, but as I just made a reservation for an up coming trip back, wanted to renew a great trip. As a visitor to the "old" Capitan Lafite, I was hesitant to take my children for Spring Break last year. However, we were so happy with our stay. We had the cabin...

Petit Lafitte was exactly what we were looking for. A place to relax, enjoy the the beach, be pampered, and do nothing. Big all-inclusives are not for us. We like the feel of a small boutique - and Petit Lafitte fit the bill. We were actually steps from the water. The food was outstanding - gourmet! The bartenders called you...

This is the second year in a row that we have stayed here and it is a "true gem". Perfect location and the greatest staff you will ever find. The beach is wonderful, the food very good and everyone is so very kind. It is NOT the biggest all inclusive with lots of bars and swimming pools, but a VERY...

This was our second stay at the resort. Both times we have gone in a large group and the report has been perfect. Rooms are awesome, free breakfast and lunch are great, staff is amazon and super accommodating, drinks are CHEAP! Those of you looking for all inclusive should consider this place, the bar is super cheap and after 5...

This review is a long time coming, since we went last June. This place is wonderful! My partner and I were upgraded to a bungalow and absolutely loved the rustic feel and the short walk to the beach. Definitely not the mega resort feel. Someone said it remind them of family camp- and it does! The service was impeccable. And...
