Beautiful and peaceful hideaway

Posted 31-Aug-2015
We have just returned from a week of total relaxation! This was our second stay at Petite Lafitte and we will definitely return again. If you are looking for crowded beaches, lots of people, boring tourist food, and lots of noise this is not your spot. If you are looking for a calm and relaxing place to lay in a hammock, get a beachside massage, beach recliners that are always available, a bar and grill that overlooks the ocean, and grounds that are kept very clean, this is your place! This hotel is close enough to everything you'd like to do and far enough away that you feel like have your own private beach. There are hotels on either side of Petite, but even they are just far enough away to not feel crowded. The beach directly in front of the hotel is not suitable for swimming because of the rocks but if you go maybe 500 feet to your left there's a beautiful swimming area. We brought our own masks and snorkels and saw beautiful fish every day! They also rent kayaks and blow up (pool type) inner tubes that you can use in the ocean. They clean the seaweed from the front of the beach twice a day so it's always clean. The food is delicious and fresh and always creative. Not the typical Mexican food here in the states. Bottles of water are always in the room and we've never had any problems. The people who work there are so friendly and are willing to do anything that you need. Victor, Antonio, Manuel and everyone there are just awesome. Tip well, they work incredibly hard!

Schöne Strandlage

Posted 23-Aug-2015
Sehr schönes familiäres Hotel, direkt am Strand gelegen, von dem Aus man allerdings aufgrund von Felsen nicht ins Wasser gehen kann, sondern ca 50m weitergegen muss. Super gepflegte Gartenanlage mit großem Swimmingpool und Strandbar, von der aus einem auch direkt an die Liegestuehle am Strand serviert wird. Gechilltes Personal, freundlicher und prompter Service. Mietwagen ratsam, wenn man öfter nach Playa Del Carmen möchte und auch Touren vorhat. Das Hotel ist ruhig gelegen, in Nachbarschaft ein gutes Restaurant (Cocos Cabanas), erreichbar über den Strand (rechts). Im Hotel abends kann man nicht a La Carte essen, Menü 25 $. Im Restaurant nebenan kostet ein gutes Abendessen die Haelfte.

Very nice hotel

Posted 20-Aug-2015
Pros: Everything. The room was nice. The restaurant food was great, the waiters are always checking if you need anything the atmosphere is very nice.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: The beach is right there. Playa del Carmen downtown is about 10 mins. Xcaret and Xplor are 15-20 mins. Xel-ha & Tulum are 45-50 mins.
We stayed at a bungalow - garden view and it was really nice and very clean. It's a great hotel to relax and enjoy the beach. The staff is very friendly and attentive.

Just what we were looking for

Posted 15-Aug-2015
It's a small hotel if you compared it to all-inclusive resorts but that's exactly what we wanted; a small quiet hotel next to the beach. We wanted to avoid the big crowds. The staff was great and the food too. Would definitely stay there again when I go back to Playa.

Geniale, freundliche Atmosphäre und tolle Anlage

Posted 23-Jul-2015
Super freundliches und lustiges Personal, sehr leckeres Essen, Karibikfeeling pur mit Palmen, viel Holz, Hängematten, Stroh-Sonnenschirmen und sauberem Sand! Zimmer super ausgestattet - kein salziges Wasser aus den Leitungen im vergleich zu vielen anderen Hotels in der Region, sehe hilfsbereites Personal an der Rezeption, gute Tour-angebote und und und ... :)

Hotel ideal para descansar

Posted 22-Jul-2015
El hotel tiene pocas habitaciones motivo por el cual todos los servicios son mas personalizados, esto también te acerca a los demás huéspedes. Todas las personas del hotel son súper amables, en un par de días te hacen sentir como si fueran familia. Las habitaciones no son supremas pero si bastante funcionales y limpias, se cuenta con wifi y la comida es bastante buena. Definitivamente regresaría.

Boutique hotel

Posted 15-Jun-2015
Pros: Small hotel with friendly service
Cons: Although we were fully aware that this wasn't an 'all inclusive' hotel, we feel for the price we paid, it really should be.
Location: Location was fine - we didn't leave the hotel premises!
My husband and I spent 5 nights at Petit Lafitte in early June after travelling through the USA for 4 weeks. It was a welcome relief to relax and unwind at this lovely, smallish hotel. The staff were friendly and professional and we thoroughly enjoyed our chats with Jesus at the bar!!! Unfortunately the seaweed was thick and plentiful which excluded us from swimming in the sea, however, the pool was more than a good substitute.

Great place for family

This would be a truly memorable place during the winter. But June brings wind and rain reducing the enjoyment. Staff is great as is the food

Estancia tranquila al borde del caribe

Posted 8-Jun-2015
Piscina muy bonita. Playa rocosa y con algas (como casi toda la zona de playa del carmen). Cuartos amplios. Personal muy amable y desayuno excelente.
