Best kept secret around. Have them schedule taxi from/to airport. About 45 min drive. Difficult to find at night if your not familiar with things. Friendliest staff we've ever encountered. Nothing but good for all areas.

I had been to the old Capitan Lafitte's (and Kailuum, a wonderful paradise next door) years ago. I wanted to go somewhere relatively easy to get to from the Midwest where I could relax and not have to worry about finding restaurants, somewhere safe, and on the beach. Lafitte's filled the bill! I have to say that the best part...

After tedious wedding planning, my wife and I wanted a relaxed, calm, and easy-going environment to spend our honeymoon. The place was absolutely perfect. We stayed in a Bungalow with Breakfast and Dinner included and, in addition from being relatively affordable, it was truly an incredible experience. The staff is friendly, helpful, and fun (David, in particular). They help with...

We are some of the many "repeat" guests that return to this wonderful hotel year after year- 27 years to be exact! We first discovered it when it was Capitan Lafitte, a short distance north of the present Hotel Petit Lafitte. Readers may wonder what it is that would make so many come back year after year when there are...

We had a great time at Petit Lafitte. The people, food, accommodations and guests were wonderful. Breakfast and dinner were included and were delicious. 2 for 1 Happy Hour is always fun and there was entertainment a few of the nights. The view was breathtaking! Special thanks to David, Ivan, Antonio, Jesus, Victor and Manuel for keeping me smiling for...

We stayed here in July of 2016. I didn't realize that I had not reviewed it, or would have done so sooner. Firstly, Playa del Carmen is an amazing place to stay. We drove over after a 2 week stay in Merida, Yucatan, and were so glad that we did so. I like this property, because it is very private...

Everyone at Petit Lafitte was so welcoming and always knew you when you by your name the entire stay. The breakfast and dinner is including in the room rate. The food was wonderful. You have no need to leave the resort on your own, everything can be arranged by David. They will pick you up at the resort. You don't...

At check-in, our clerk Luis was a pure delight - charming, great sense of humor and very welcoming. All the staff members we interacted with went out of their way to greet us, humor our badly mangled attempts at Spanish and were just flat out nice people. We really enjoyed the groundskeeper who cares for the birds in the small...

Lovely location. Small hotel with very friendly staff and service. We were there to celebrate a birthday and to take in the sites. This is perfect for those who are looking for some r&r. This is a beachfront location with a small pool. Hammocks are located beachfront along with beach chairs to lay out.

We had an excellent vacation thanks to the charming, funny, and helpful staff. It has been that way for years. We will go back. The room was comfortable, although the lighting is severely lacking. Readers are advised to take small clip on reading lights.
