Lovely location. Small hotel with very friendly staff and service. We were there to celebrate a birthday and to take in the sites. This is perfect for those who are looking for some r&r. This is a beachfront location with a small pool. Hammocks are located beachfront along with beach chairs to lay out.

We had an excellent vacation thanks to the charming, funny, and helpful staff. It has been that way for years. We will go back. The room was comfortable, although the lighting is severely lacking. Readers are advised to take small clip on reading lights.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Petit Lafitte in mid-February. From the food to the staff to the beach bungalow we stayed in, everything was perfect. The included food is good - breakfast offers a buffet of fruit to start with and an array of dishes to choose from, while dinner changes each night and can include...

We return every year to this small resort North of Playa del Carmen. There is a reason -- mostly the friendly and helpful and entertaining staff; next the wonderful food; the pretty beach; clean and quiet rooms.

White sands, clean rooms, great food and the nicest staff you'll ever meet. There are numerous excursions available and they'll arrange the transportation. The bar is great and entertainment is provided often from singers, Mayan dancers etc.

All the Petite Lafitte staff were so kind, attentive to all our needs. Great praise for our bartender, Victor. We didn't think all the food was exciting, but our favorites were the coconut ice cream and the steak nachos for lunch on the beach. PL has a fabulous beach location, so much more desirable than a mega-resort. It is all...

Excellent, low price, small, boutique hotel. Walk 25 meters into the water, on the beach, on the North end and there is good snorkeling. Bartenders are great. Local entertainment three nights a week for an hour by the bar at 6:30PM. Warning: It is a ninety minute walk on the beach south to get into Play del Carmen 5 Avenue.

First time in Mexico at petit lafitte and we will be back here without a doubt. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation on the beach this place is it. We were a little skeptical on the drive in (construction, barbed fences etc.) but the second you walk past the lobby it's pure paradise. Everything is great here from...

Petit Lafitte is a perfect example of what a vacation resort should be. This beautiful family owned boutique hotel is a rose amongst the ever growing number of mammoth all-inclusive options in the area. My experience starts at the front entrance where I am always greeted with a hug and hearty, "Welcome Back!" My choice of room is a cabana,...

We arranged for about 25 family members to stay here for a week vacation, as well as have have our wedding on the beach here. It was incredible!! The personal service is just outstanding...you will pretty much get to know everyone by the time you leave. Ivan, our wedding planner, was awesome! He made it so much fun and easy...
