Great place to relax and enjoyPosted 13-Sep-2014
Cons: Bathrooms could be upgraded
Location: Playa was 5 mins away if you have a car.
We stayed 5 days at Petit Lafitte and we couldn`t be more pleased. The location is great, the beach is gorgeous, the food and the staff are wonderful. If you`re looking for a romantic and relaxing place close to Playa del Carmen this is a great option.

Quiet and relaxing hotel on the beachPosted 2-Sep-2014
Pros: It was small, quiet and quaint.
Cons: The room lighting, mattress size and the lack of storage for clothes. The owners should consider offering a full menu for the evening meal.
We loved Petite Lafitte. It was perfect place for a relaxing and rejuvenating holiday. It's small, quaint and just the place to be when you want to get away from it all. We stayed in bungalow #3 and it was fantastic. The hotel is about 15 minutes to the north of Playa del Carmen; $16 taxi ride each way. We didn't feel the need to leave the property during our 6 day stay except one time. It's hard to find anything negative to say about this property. The food is good, the drinks great and the staff excellent. David is a wonderful! We used the transfer company on the hotel's website. They were 20 minutes late picking us up and the SUV was really shabby; upholstery torn up. We received no water or offer of a cerveza. Wouldn't recommend. It was $80 for the trip from airport to hotel. Used a different company on the trip back to airport and it cost $50. Want to go to the Playa del Carment area? We definitely recommend Petite Lafitte!

Pleasant and quietPosted 23-Aug-2014
Pros: Service, food, location
This was a great find. The staff was wonderful, the food was great and we could not have been more pleased. This hotel had everything we wanted and very low key. A great place to stay if you are looking to do a lot of day excursions.

A true getawayPosted 9-Aug-2014
Pros: Great staff, lovely beach, delicious meals.
Cons: The hotel uses pesticides in its rooms so that's something to be aware of.
Location: The location is well removed from the main scene in Playa del Carmen. You'll be at the beach or at the pool.
Don't come to Petite Lafitte if your idea of a vacation includes a Starbucks on every block, constant air conditioning at 68F and a shopping mall inside your resort. You won't like it. Come for delicious food in an open air restaurant under a thatched roof, a slice of heavenly beach, hammocks and the kindest staff ever. The hotel is located a good 15 minute ride away from the main strip of Playa del Carmen, so it feels completely in a world of its own. I spent four lovely days here on a solo trip and would go back again.

Petite Lafitte is the SheetPosted 15-Jul-2014
Pros: Staff was very friendly. Location & price were perfect. Tons of room on their beach.
Cons: Cancun airport has now monopolized the taxi services. Expect to pay $100 to get anywhere from the airport.
Location: Beautiful turquoise green waters on white sand beach. Cool little pizza place 100 yards from property with surprisingly good pizza & lively little bar
Found them while looking for an inexpensive, unique place near Playa Del Carmen. The beach bungalows caught our eyes immediately. Had glowing reviews that were spot-on . Bungalows are cozy & rustic (yet ours could've slept 5). A little more pricey than reg rooms but totally worth it. The layout gives you an ocean view yet is still private in it's jungle setting. Outdoor bar was 50 feet away & drinks were very reasonably priced. Breakfast & dinner were included & were easily the best meals we've ever had in ANY part of Mexico.

Exactly what we were looking for!Posted 13-Jul-2014
We were looking for a place that was quaint & quite without the party scene or big resort feel. The food & staff were excellent, friendly & very accommodating. It was the perfect spot for a relaxing vacation & honeymoon year 1 for us :).

Charming hotel, great value and foodPosted 17-May-2014 on Hotels.com
My gf and I had just come from Tulum to spend a night in Playa del Carmen and stayed at Lafitte. We were impressed by the pool area and the condition of the rooms, and the dinner and breakfast (both included) were very good. As an added bonus, we saw a 30 minute historical Mayan war dance / ritual re-enacted on the hotel premises. This was a great surprise. The only negative comment relates to the fact that the beach strip is not nearly as clean as Tulum, and getting into the water is tricky due to sharp edged rocks. We have nothing to fault the hotel and see it as an attractive family holiday location for those looking to spend time in Playa del Carmen.

Pros: Small, quiet, intimate and right on the water. Excellent beach location. Nice pool area too!
Location: Not much around. Can't really walk to anything, but hotel does arrange for transportation to area attractions.
Can't wait to go back! Casual place to lay back and relax. If you don't have a car, be sure to pick up snacks on the way in since there isn't anywhere close to shop.
