Quaint and quiet with beautiful beachPosted Nov 9, 2015
Pros: The bungalows are picture perfect.
Cons: The drive up on the dirt road was a bit off putting.
Location: You can snorkel right off the hotel's beach, but bring your water shoes for the rocks. You have to take a taxi to get to shopping and restaurants.
The staff was extremely personable, helpful and knew us by our first names almost immediately. The bungalows are quaint, beach bungalows, but they still have AC, which is super important. There are no TV's in the bungalows, which can be a surprise for some, but they do have free wifi. The food provided was phenomenal! If you're looking for a quiet place to bond with your partner, this is perfect. If you're looking for a party hotel with tons of restaurants and bars within walking distance, this is not the place for you.

Beautiful and peaceful hideawayPosted Aug 31, 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 StrandlagePosted Aug 23, 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 hotelPosted Aug 20, 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.
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 forPosted Aug 15, 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.

Best little hotelPosted Aug 14, 2015 on Hotels
Great for families very relaxing. The food was the best and service was excellent.The staff members were very friendly and helpful. The beach was great however at the time we were there a lot of seaweed was coming in and the staff was trying to clear it from the beach. If you want to sightsee I recommend that you rent a car.

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 descansarPosted Jul 22, 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.
