I couldn't recommend this location highly enough for families, or couples looking to enjoy a quiet vacation. In comparison to the grandiose hotels nearby Lafitte offers a unique, personal experience that allows the visitor to be immersed in nature while enjoying the excellent service of caring staff. At all times our needs were accommodated and we felt a part of...

First time visitors to Playa del Carmen and we didnt want a mega-hotel experience. Petite is run efficiently by an extremely pleasant staff. The grounds are well kept, the rooms clean, and everyone offers service with a genuine smile. Breakfast & dinner are included and the food was pretty good. The service is what sets the experience apart. Nice little...

I used to go to the Akumal Beach Resort, 30 minutes south of Playa, until they remodeled it and it lost its mellow vibe.Tthe Petit Lafitte, which has been around a long time ( when I told friends we were going there, many people had been there in the 90s) still has that small, charming, personal ambiance. We chose a...

I wanted to avoid the tourist trappings of huge impersonal resorts and find an intimate and quaint accommodation on the beach with lots of charm and character. I found it in Petit Lafitte! Petit Lafitte is a unique and rare gem. It has a great location that makes it very accessible to a variety of day excursions up and down...

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...
