Not sure what I can add to all the glowing reviews other than this: they are spot on. My wife and I walked up and down the beach passing all the other resorts and we kept saying to each other "I'm SO glad we are at Lafitte." We were treated like family. The food was

Response from Ivan F, Director of Sales at Hotel Petit Lafitte
Responded 11 Dec 2018
Dear BronzeBelgetti Sounds like your first visit to Petit Lafitte, won your heart and you are already dreaming of a return trip someday! To be sincere, that is what we get up for every morning. To provide an experience that people deem worth repeating. You mention in your review that you actually met several of our guests who have been here before, some on their 3rd, some o their 7th visit. The true testimony that when there is open hearts and genuine care, connections are formed. We thank you for choosing us for your vacation as a couple and for all the nice things you said about us. I will keep the metaphor about building a house that will be sold and building a house that one will live in. We built this house over many years of learning and we feel proud to say that we have a loyal audience who call us their home away from home. Sound like our paths will cross again… We are already looking forward to that day. Warm Regards Iván Fuentes

Petit Lafitte continues to surpass our expectations. Our room was very clean and comfortable, and I think that the food is better than ever. Our weather wasn't perfect, but the rain didn't keep us from having a good time.

What an incredible experience! Petite Lafitte is truly a hidden gem. A quiet, serene alternative to staying at a giant all-inclusive. Breakfast and dinner were included, breakfast was very good and dinner was absolutely amazing every night. The staff was friendly and hard

We were very happy with our choice of the Petit Lafitte, a very friendly, small hotel with a peaceful environment in the midst of the party atmosphere of Playa del Carmen. The hotel has about 25 bungalows and about 30 other rooms in a low rise building. It has a half board

Palm trees, white sand, turquoise sea...And your favorite drink!
I had the meal plan so breakfast and dinner was included in the room rate which I prepaid. Lunches and drinks were paid on my bill at the end; extremely reasonable for the week's stay. Tips can be done at each meal, or given at the end as you wish. There is a box in the restaurant. I tipped each day for the room service.

The rain is in and out. We were there for a week and the forecast showed rain every day. However, it only rained a few of the days and it was short. There was only 1 day that it rained most the day out of 7 that showed rain. If it does rain, you can get a 1 hour massage for just $30 and the beach bar is covered with plastic walls where needed so you can still have lunch or drinks all day. It was actually nice when it rained.

"This year we stayed in room 1; we also like room 9. But we have never stayed in a room we did not enjoy."
"We stayed in a cabana. It was cost but workable with three of us together. Loved having our porch for quiet reads or card games. "
"Thank you "
"Arrange transportation with reception. They can get you better deals."
"Love Room #1"
