We very much enjoyed our stay at Petit Lafitte. The meals were good, our cabin was comfortable and cleaned very well daily, and we enjoyed the porch.

We spent five days at the Petit and did not leave the hotel except to go to the beach, as relaxing as is possible. The staff are great and the breakfasts wonderful, the bar and deck is as good as it gets, if you want a beach holiday you will do well to do better.

Dear T!RSD, Sometimes pleasure is found in the simplest things….a sunrise or moonrise over the ocean, the feel of sand on your feet, the smell of fresh breeze coming from the sea, or the wind on your skin while you sway on a hammock beneath two palm trees. For those who appreciated, Petit lafitte is heaven. Thank you for writing...
