We are staying just north of playa in a residential area, and have had a hard time finding places on the beach that are open to the public for food and drinks.

We stayed here for 10 days and it was fabulous! The location is perfect. It is just far enough from the town of Playa Del Carmen for the beach to be clean and peaceful. The beach in front is perfect. You can walk right in on the soft sand and there is also nice snorkeling. The beach is clean and... More

Dear Iseeamoose, and P. Thank you so much for your review for Petit Lafitte. It sounds like you really liked the location (far enough-close enough to town) that allowed for peaceful and clean beach. It also sounds like you loved the elements that compose the beach landscape, from blue waters, sand, sea shells, and even pelicans fishing! I think a... More

Outstanding service everywhere except 1 person in the bar, but everyone else is top notch and treat you exceptionally well. Beautiful beach and great pool area.

Today the state of Q-Roo is built on tourism.
