Hotelanlage mit Atmosphäre

Posted 3-Mar-2015
Pros: Um es umgekehrt zu sagen - es war nichts, was zu kritisieren wäre. Preis/Leistungsverhältnis excellent.
Location: Das Hotel liegt ca. 5 km von Playa del Carmen entfernt zwischen Appartement-Anlagen, wer Wert auf Trubel legt, braucht ein Auto. Parkplatz kostenlos.
Etwas für Leute, die keinen Massen-All-Inclusiv-Urlaub mögen. Geräumige Zimmer mit air-condition und zusätzlich nostalgischem Propeller, tropische Gartenanlage mit kleinerem aber nie überlaufenem Pool und für den Preis excellentes Essen (Frühstück mit umfangreichem Früchtebuffet und rund einem Dutzend à-la-carte Gerichte, Dinner mit Salatbuffet und jeweils 2 Gerichten zur Wahl). Dazu locker-freundliches Personal. Auch für Familien mit Kindern gut geeignet. Lage direkt am Bilderbuch-Strand (wie dort überall öffentlich, aber absolut kein Gedränge) mit weißem Sand und türkisfarbenem Wasser, gemütliche Strandbar. In der Lobby 2 Computer zur freien Benutzung, davon einer mit angeschlossenem Drucker. Kostenloses WLAN vorhanden, aber öffentliches Netz offenbar häufig überlastet.

Familiäres freundliches Hotel in ruhiger Lage

Posted 1-Mar-2015
Das Hotel liegt außerhalb von Playa del Carmen direkt am Strand. Wir hatten ein Zimmer mit direktem Blick auf den Strand. Das Hotel ist wesentlich kleiner als all die umliegenden Resorts und wird sehr familiär und freundlich geführt. Man findet schnell Kontakt und es ergeben sich angenehme Gespräche. Das Hotel hat einen eigenen Strandabschnitt, an dem die Liegen nicht zu eng stehen. Wer will, findet Schatten. Im Vergleich zu den Resorts in der Nähe, steht wesentlich mehr Platz am Strand pro Person zur Verfügung. Außerhalb von Playa del Carmen ist das Meer eher felsig und daher nicht überall ideal zum Baden. Jedoch direkt am Strand vom Hotel bestehts ein Abschnitt, an dem man gut baden kann. Das Frühstück und das Abendessen sind abwechslungsreich und umfangreich. Wir sind Vegetarier. Das Hotel war sehr bemüht spezielle Mahlzeiten für uns zu erstellen. Das Hotel ist geeignet, wenn man Abends die Ruhe sucht. In der Umgebung vom Hotel herrscht Stille. Zur Stadt ist es weit und nur mit Taxi oder Mietwagen möglich. Mietwagen kann direkt im Hotel bestellen. Hat sehr gut geklappt. Neuerdings bietet das Hotel auch Yoga werktags an. Das langjährige Personal ist sehr freundlich und kümmert sich um die kleinen Sorgen. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden das Hotel wieder wählen.

Paradise off the beaten path

Posted 26-Jan-2015
Pros: Location, staff and food.
Cons: Rooms are dated but clean.
Location: A $15-25 cab ride to Playa del Carmen. We also walked the beach to town...about an hour and a half walk (one way.)
We stayed here for 4 nights in January and wished we would have stayed longer! The highlights are the staff, the staff!, the staff!!, great food and quiet location. We did not want a mega, all inclusive with loud music, crowding and buffet food. Petite LaFitte was perfect! It has a bed and breakfast feel. The owner, George, really tries to get to know you and looks out for his guests. A very caring and kind man. David, the activities director, is genuine and so helpful. The waitstaff is attentive and personable...knew our names & preferred orders by the 2nd day! There are plenty of chairs & umbrellas on the beach (free!) so we did not have to race the crowds to ensure a prime beach spot. There were also very few "beach peddlers" which we liked (I saw only 2). It should be noted that the ocean directly in front of the hotel has rough waters so they advise to swim in an area directly adjacent...an extra 40 steps through the soft, white sand! We were surprised at the exceptional food! Tasted & looked beautiful! They offer a few choices of generously portioned main entrees each evening (seated dinner) and also have a substantial buffet of salads, fruits, breads, etc. We really enjoyed the beachside dinner. They don't have organized activities but they do have kayaks, boogie boards, etc to use. There was pre-dinner entertainment on our last evening...Mayan dancers! With the quaint size of the hotel, it really was a private performance. Top notch hospitality!!

Staff very welcoming and accomadating.

Posted 24-Jan-2015
Pros: Staff was friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Food was well presented and waiters were very socialble. Room was very clean.
Cons: A little better curb appeal when entering the property, and for me a little softer bed.
Location: Right on the beach, and a short taxi ride into town.
From the get go, resort was warm and friendly. Staff was easy to get to know and met repeat guests. In town, other than people hounding you felt safe and expierienced a totally different world we were used to.

Great Place, perfect beach and good food

Posted 24-Jan-2015
Pros: Great Place, perfect beach and good food
Cons: a shuttle to drive people to the city, like two times a day thing or something.
This hotel is really good for chilling and relaxing. perfect beach and good food plus the staff is very nice and helpful. do take in consideration it is a 10 minute drive form center of playa, you can't walk there.
