We have been to Petit Lafitte 5 times now - and each time is just as amazing and magical as the first. This is a quiet getaway spot - perfect for families. We always look forward to seeing familiar faces, and sipping on those amazing Margaritas and Mojitos. We are already checking our calendar for visit #6!!!

This was our first stay in Playa del Carmen so I picked this hotel based on reviews. We prefer smaller hotels and love the Tulum area (where we spent half this vacation and at least part of every other vacation in the area). We were surprised when we arrived as it felt a lot larger than it is (50 rooms)....

Just returned from 11 days at Petit Lafitte's and miss it already! We decided there was no better place than Petit's to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. Such fun and so relaxing sums it up. We have many years with Lafitte's and keep returning because they truly do take excellent care of you. We love the ocean bungalows with the...

For the second year in a row now I have had the pleasure of staying at Petit Lafitte. The staff are wonderful and become like family. The comedy shins are perfect in their simplicity. Neat and tidy and situated close to both the pool and the ocean. I love the intimacy of this place--unique in my experiences of Caribbean travel....

I took my Father to Petit a couple of weeks ago for his birthday and everything was perfect. Unlike most hotels along the beach in Playa, Petit is a smaller more intimate setting where all of the staff knows you by name. The food is amazing! The bar is amazing! The beachfront is beautiful! Unlike some beachfront properties, Petit's staff...

I was there with a group of about 24 women for a fitness retreat and it was amazing. This small resort covered all the bases. Awesome food, excellent service and great rooms. Located right on the water and the pool and restaurant was right outside the room. It was super quiet and affordable. I need to work while I am...

This was our 24th visit to Petit Lafitte, counting the times we visited Capitán Lafitte before it closed. Many of the same wonderful staff members are still there, the food is amazing, and the accommodations are modest but very comfortable. If you're looking for a place to totally unwind and enjoy the magnificent Mayan Riviera without the feeling of Cancún,...

Loved this place. Attended a wedding there. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are very nice, very clean, but no frillish. But who cares when you're going to spend all your time at the beach or in the pool? A great bar right near the ocean, and tons of fun activities to do in the area. Restful hammocks...

Nicely intimate resort with exceedingly kind, witty and caring staff. The bartenders and servers were all delightful. Ivan also made the wedding of our niece and her fiancé go beautifully. Highly recommended!
