Paradise off the beaten path

Posted Jan 26, 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 Jan 24, 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.

Fantastic for quiet, comfortable family vacation.

Posted Jan 19, 2015
This was our second time there. It's quiet, clean and quaint. the staff is outstanding. The food was great -- we were happy with each meal. If you want a super fancy place or a place to party, it's not for you. But if you want to relax in a great environment, it's the place to go. A great value in the Maya Riviera.
