Hotel's Favourite
This is a quaint and simple hotel unlike most other resorts in the area. I have to say this hotel may not be for everyone but that's exactly what makes it special. We stayed at an oceanfront bungalow and it was the best stay I have ever experienced in my entire life. Perhaps the

Response from Ivan F, Director of Sales at Hotel Petit Lafitte

Dear rodrickv83 Thank you for all your kind words. Quite frankly, to hear of your intention of returning here to become a regular guests like the ones you met, is exactly our raison d’être. We are very happy to hear that. You are absolutely right about the fact that Petit Lafitte will not fill the eye of everyone that comes here, that for some this will be too rustic or too boring, or the food will not be good enough etcetera. I guess this is where the saying “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” fits well. We are delighted to know that there are people that appreciate simplicity, and sincerity the way you do. Let us know when you wish to return and fulfill your intention of becoming a regular, we do have some special perks for our repeat guests, ask about it when you contact us. All the best and see you next time! Iván Fuentes.

This little family-run hotel is an oasis of chill happiness. Unlike many of the resorts on the riviera maya, it is personal and retains a cultural authenticity while creating a superbly comfortable atmosphere. The staff, many of whom have worked for the hotel for many years, are

This was our sixth time at Petite. We have enjoyed every stay. We have stayed most of the time in the ocean view bungalows. The offer a nice breeze and nice view of the ocean. The water is very close as well as dining, pool and bar. This is a jewel in the midst of the giant

I had the meal plan so breakfast and dinner was included in the room rate which I prepaid. Lunches and drinks were paid on my bill at the end; extremely reasonable for the week's stay. Tips can be done at each meal, or given at the end as you wish. There is a box in the restaurant. I tipped each day for the room service.

The rain is in and out. We were there for a week and the forecast showed rain every day. However, it only rained a few of the days and it was short. There was only 1 day that it rained most the day out of 7 that showed rain. If it does rain, you can get a 1 hour massage for just $30 and the beach bar is covered with plastic walls where needed so you can still have lunch or drinks all day. It was actually nice when it rained.

"All rooms wonderful especially the bungalows! "
"Choose a bungalow that is close to the water."
"I don't have a preference."
"My room was roomy and kept very clean during my stay. It had a step in shower, comfortable bed, desk, dresser and very spacious."
"If you want a real beach/ocean view, stay in one of the front 2 bungalows."
