My husband and I stayed at Petite Lafitte from Thursday, June 25 - Sunday, June 28th. We were in room #206 (3rd floor). In the room was a flat screen TV, micro fridge, small dresser and table. We had a king size bed with two side tables (lamps on both tables). There was a ceiling fan in the room. There...

We stayed here for a few days after staying in Downtown Playa Del Carmen for a friend’s birthday during the BPM Festival. My girlfriend and I wanted a laid-back place where we could just relax on the beach in peace and quiet. This was definitely the right choice! The minute we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly staff....

Overall this was a great hotel. We went the last week of May and it was hot and humid! The real feel temperature was 102 most days. There is AC in the rooms but everything else (restaurants, bar, etc) is outdoors. There is a nice breeze so that helps. We stayed in the hotel section (not the bungalows) and had...

Hola JoshC, We’re glad you really enjoyed Petit Lafitte. Thank you for sharing your views with others and for all the encouraging words.

Just back from our first trip to Petit Lafitte, six nights, which we picked because of the consistently glowing TripAdvisor reviews. The reviews are right! Beautiful location, above average resort food (lunch at the bar grill and soups in the dining room are especially good, lobster dinners can be special-ordered), easy in/out from Cancun. Staff (almost all male) are outstanding,...

This is the best! Forget about the huge all-inclusive hotels.... Petit Lafitte is the way to go for an unforgettable stay in Playa del Carmen. Great food, great staff and superb service.

I really enjoyed our stay at Petit Lafitte. The location was great, right on the beach. Included breakfast and dinner were always on point which was perfect as we had day trips planned each day. It's not a 5 star and the rooms aren't super fancy, but man, for the price it is absolutely fantastic. I hear think there are...

“Stay in the main building for tv and/or to save money. Garden bungalows for quiet. Beach bungalows if the view is super important to you.”

“My husband and I rented a private bungalow! #7 Our bungalow was always cleaned by noon to include fresh linens, towels, water, restocked fridge and most importantly, clean foot dipping water to keep the sand out and not in! Every one seems to tip their cleaning staff at the end of their stay as you always have the same housekeeper. The office will give you special envelopes for this gratuity.”
