We are repeat customers at Petit Lafitte. My family is treated like family at Petit Lafitte, and we absolutely love our time spent here. The food was delicious, the bar and dining staff was spectacular, the ground keepers were amazing, and everyone overall is like a "well oiled machine". We did not want to leave, but look so very forward...

Great little place, really chilled, great bar with lovely drinks and huge range of beers. Room we had (not a bungalow) was basic but comfortable. Drinks very well priced. Breakfast good, dinner less so but nice no frills eating. Great staff. Great getaway. Sorry drive outside of playa del Carmen so nice and quiet. We would love to go again.

Petit Lafitte is at the end of a short, bumpy road, after other narrow roads, but it's so worth going there! The place is a gem, made moreso by the people. This was my 4th visit in 5 years; its the best! It must be a good place to work too, because I see the same waiters and bartenders and...

We stayed at Petit Lafitte for 3 days before going to Cozumel. Everyone was so nice and the place is so relaxing clean and tranquil. Would certainly go back if we are ever that way again. Our 3 days there was a great start to a great vacation.

About 30 minutes from Cancun airport, down a bumpy, winding road, lies a little piece of paradise. This was our first visit to Petit Lafitte and definitely will not be our last. From the moment that we were greeted by Davy, to the waiters who at the end of the week became our friends, we quickly became family. This was...

This year was our eighth year in a row coming to this gem of a resort. As always we were greeted with the warmest hola's and welcome home. From the moment you arrive and kick off your shoes and settle in to the relaxed vibe of Petit, to the moment (with heavy hearts)you have to put your shoes back on...

Simply an amazing find just 3 miles North of downtown Playa del Carmen. Petit LaFitte is a hidden gem. As I stepped on property, all time slipped away. This is not a mega resort. It is a family friendly oasis. If you're looking for a relaxing vacation experience, Petit is the place for you. If you want a vacation full...

Petit Lafitte is a great small resort getaway. Only 52 rooms and enough lounge chairs to accommodate everyone. No lineups or crowds, just excellent personal service from longtime welcoming employees. Meals are absolutely excellent and served in a timely manner. Happy Hour almost every evening along with excellent entertainment round out an overall great experience.

Petit Lafitte responses give clear picture of hotel and services. From the reviews and the lengthy responses I feel like I know exactly what to expect and exactly what is promised. Can't wait! See you soon!

Started going to this area in the early 80's (to sister property Kailuum) - this is my "go-to" beach to relax and explore the surroundings when the inspiration hits. As with many areas, beachfront properties have proliferated incredibly - but that's the way of the world, right? After visiting in 2016, I was very saddened to see a big new...

“I didn't see much a difference between the Ocean View and Ocean Front bungalows.”
  • Ocean View bungalow

“WE always stay in the Ocean-view Bungalows - the view of the beach and protection from the wind is so worth it!”

“I prefer the rooms in the main hotel than the bungalows. The bungalows were better for families with small children.”

“Oceanfront bungalow #9 did not disappoint. Bonus, oceanfront bungalows are close enough to the beachfront bar that our 7 yo felt at ease with us leaving the room after bedtime to enjoy adult social time and could easily find us if needed. The bar is situated in a way that the bungalows are sheltered from any bar noise.”
