We just spent two weeks at Petite Lafitte. It was by far the most relaxing vacation we have EVER taken. If you are looking for massive buildings with craziness all around this is not for you. The setting is absolutely serene. The staff is beyond helpful, friendly as well as funny. The food is all freshly made at the hotel....

I'm not sure we could have found a better place to spend our Honeymoon. Overall experience was great. Petit Lafitte is the perfect option to the oversized, crowded, overbooked resorts in the area. The staff is very attentive, and they are a blast to interact with. The scenery could not be more picture perfect for the area. Make sure you...

Not a thing I would want different! The staff was more than accommodating and friendly. The property was meticulously maintained. The food was excellent. This is truly a place I would come to again and again.

I planned this trip way in advance so I did a ton of research on various hotels. I was looking for something small, quiet and beautiful with great views, great service, great food, and great staff. I found it. The Petit Lafitte had all of these things. From the first time I emailed the hotel several months before I actually...

If you're looking for the glitz, hussel and bussel of downtown, this is not your place. It is quiet, tranquil, beautiful and just secluded enough to unwind and relax.

We absolutely loved this hotel, it is an amazing find and we will be back.
