Once you find it...RELAX!

Posted 21-Jul-2017
Cons: pool could use some attention...few missing tiles etc...but it was clean and comfortable.
Location: Drive to Chichen Itza or Tulum for the Mayan ruins. Chichen Itza is big, but its so far, too many vendors. Tulum is closer, more reasonable.
We stayed in a ground floor ocean view room near the pool. Rooms are nice and clean, AC worked well. I slept extremely well. The property overall could use minor repairs and tweaks here and there but nothing worth complaining about. Location of our room was right by the pool and bar but it was never too noisy for us. We spent very little time in the room. If you stay here...and are considering the option of paying a little extra for the included breakfast and dinner...DO IT. Food was outstanding and plentiful, awesome waitstaff, etc... Seriously, two of our best meals in Mexico were dinner at the hotel. The beach is beautiful, but not huge. They have clearly brought in some new sand...it's deep and soft...but the beach isn't great for swimming right in front of the hotel. You only have to walk down the beach a little to get to a better swim spot. I also like being a few miles away from Playa town center. We had a rental car and made several easy trips to town for shopping, dining options, and exploring the area. You will need navigation to find the hotel from the main road and look closely for the signs, but once you find it...RELAX!

Great place to unplug

This is a great hotel to relax! No drunk teens or waiting in long lines. Staff will know you by name and is willing to help. Again not a party hotel.

Short Getaway

Posted 5-Jul-2017
Cons: Food quality could be a little better and mattress is not the most comfortable.
This is a great little property if you are looking for a calm and relaxing experience. Food is decent quality, staff is all friendly and bungalows are a great alternative to the standard room experience.

On the beach

Posted 26-Apr-2017
Pros: Location and laid-back local vibe.
Location: Close to most of the attractions in Riviera Maya.
Walk out of your room to the sand and beach. Quaint, quiet, and unique beach resort. Family friendly, good food and wonderful staff.

Quiet friendly hotel on the beach

Posted 23-Apr-2017
So happy to have found hotel. We are a family of 4 with two children, ages 10 & 12, stayed for a week. Our family is not the mega, all inclusive resort type who never leaves the resort and eats all meals on site but we did like that breakfast and dinner were included here. Completely happy with our garden bungalow, staff, location, everything. Loved the beach bar, beach patio, pool, and hammocks hanging in the shade everywhere. Felt very safe and welcomed by hotel. Staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. We do not sit still long before we feel compelled to set out for an adventure. Location is the perfect spot if you want to see the incredible sights nearby. We had a car for the week and could eat breakfast then venture out for the day and make it back in time for dinner except for day we went to Chichen Itza. Woke at 5:30am to get there by 8:00am and so glad we beat the heat and crowds that were arriving as we were leaving at noon. Would stay again and would recommend to anyone who does not want a mega resort, wants to be centrally located, and is interested in seeing the incredible sites and Mayan culture. We loved tulum, coba, Chichen Itza, cenote dos ojos, cenote samula, xcaret. Even 5th avenue in playa was fun to walk and shop for a few hours. So much to see, a week is not enough.

loved this place

Great staff and we loved the location. We were looking for a small hotel with a more personal and authentic experience and this checked all of our boxes. We loved the food and the service and the rooms.

Comfortable and convenient.

Posted 6-Apr-2017
Nothing but accolades for this resort and its staff. We needed a base for our touring and Petite Lafitte was our home away from home. Of special mention was the accomodaring staff. A special thanks to Eduardo at the front desk.

Happy place

Posted 5-Apr-2017 on Hotels
First time in Playa del Carmen and happy to be further out, away from it all. Lovely hotel, amazing staff, comfortable beds, great bar with very reasonably priced drinks. Our garden bungalow was near the sanctuary so lots of chances to see the monkeys that come visiting for bananas! Beach not as pretty as other visits we've had to Mexico but relaxing surroundings, friendly people and lack of chaos made up for it. Breakfasts were good. Dinners were my least favourite part. Some evenings were really good, some not so. We were there for six nights and went out for dinner one of the nights. If we were staying there longer, we definitely would have gone out to eat more. Lovely relaxed dining setting though and really friendly, happy staff. We would return.
