I planned this trip way in advance so I did a ton of research on various hotels. I was looking for something small, quiet and beautiful with great views, great service, great food, and great staff. I found it. The Petit Lafitte had all of these things. From the first time I emailed the hotel several months before I actually...

If you're looking for the glitz, hussel and bussel of downtown, this is not your place. It is quiet, tranquil, beautiful and just secluded enough to unwind and relax. You don't have to fight for a beach chair or palapa, it is peaceful. The service is awesome, if you need something, the staff will go out of their way to...

We absolutely loved this hotel, it is an amazing find and we will be back. The pool, restaurant and bar get high marks for an incredible value; the rooms are basic but quite large and comfortable with all the amenities one would need. It is right on the beach, although when we went there was seaweed, but this cannot be...

We stayed at the Petit Lafitte last week for 6 nights... we didnt want to leave. If you want a big resort hotel that is indicative of this area, this is not the hotel for you.

I would stay no where else in the Cancun/Playa del Carmen area. This resort is great! It's not too big or too small...it's perfect. We stayed in one of the oceanview bungalows and the room was clean and warm. The staff is incredible, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was perfect. The coast there is dealing with seaweed floating...

We chose hotel because it is outside town and on the beach we'll be using with our recent Play home purchase. It is out of the way so if you plan on eating elsewhere, going to town and taking excursions, I recommend renting a car at CUN Airport. Hotel is small but clean, well serviced, and great if you want...

We loved it here. It is a small resort, which is why we chose it. It had everything we needed. We did not stay in the bungalow but in one of the third floor rooms (our choice). The rooms are clean and quite spacious. There is no bath, only a shower which was the only one minor downside. We were...
