On our arrival at Petit Lafitte, I knew that we had found a "real gem" and I was so right. Our delightful bungalow was just steps from the water and it was perfect.

I first visited this area almost 30 years ago and stayed at captain Lafitte. Petit lafitte is a wonderful reincarnation and many of the staff worked at both places. Small, intimate, beautiful and comfortable. We stayed in one of the ocean view bungalows. The lofts are too warm for sleeping but the bungalow itself was very comfortable. Food was good,...

The staff was incredibly friendly and the food was excellent. The beach is right next to the hotel, and a wide range of toys are available to rent for fun in the surf. We did not have a car, but it was easy to use a cab or take a bus tour right from the hotel. It definitely feels like...

We visited Petit Lafitte in November and it was a lovely experience. A small, quaint and very clean resort with very friendly, attentive staff. We loved it. Romantic and relaxing and a short taxi ride to the Playa del Carmen tourist area. A hidden gem !

We had a good experience at Petit Lafitte. Service was very friendly and meals were delicious. Rooms are a little dated and I didn't care for the pirate logo on the windows so much but all things considered it was a good deal.
