My wife has stayed here 9 times. I have here with her 4 of those times. The three top features I love are great service, amazing location, and the food/bar. Breakfast and dinner are included in the price. Breakfast includes a buffet of cereal, oatmeal, fresh fruit, yogurt, well you get the idea. There is also a full cooked-to-order menu...

This is a very small hotel as why we booked it. The beach is great and the pool is average and so is the food. Good price if you want to go on a mellow vacation that's not expensive. Its an all in one.

We stayed for 8 days in a beach view bungalow. I love that I have my own porch looking at the beach. The whole setting here is beautiful, the beach and landscaping is just beautiful! I've been staying at Lafite and Kialuum for over 30 years, the staff is so wonderful and friendly. Not to mention that they remember us...

Petit Lafitte was a cute and charming hotel. My husband and I spent a few days there in April. This hotel seems better for families rather than couples trying to enjoy some quiet relaxation. The food was good and the breakfasts and dinners were a pleasant communal event. I would 100% recommend this hotel for any families looking for a...

You know when you return to a fabulous place for a 2nd visit and your memories are better than reality? Well, our 2nd experience at Petit Lafitte was fantastic and definitely better and more special than the first. Why you may ask? Our bungalow was as clean, the pool was as refreshing, the food was even better, and the entire...

This was our 5th visit to Petit Lafitte. For those of you who haven't been there in a while, I would like to assure you that not only is it the the same friendly place as ever, a few upgrades have been made. I noticed the following upgrades: * Showers now have a wall in lieu of shower curtain. A...

We decided to have a girls trip to Mexico and our travel agent highly recommended Petit Lafitte. SHE DID GOOD! Not knowing what to expect we were delighted and amazed. The beach is breathtaking and the grounds always clean. We stayed in the Garden Villa and loved it. Having a front porch was an added bonus. It was very rustic...

My wife and I visited Petit Lafitte the first week of April 2017, and absolutely loved everything about it. The beach was beautiful with plenty of beach chairs, and had close proximity to an awesome beachside bar. The breakfasts were included with delicious fresh fruit (Mangos were so good), as were the dinners which were for the most part very...
