After reading all the great Trip advisor reviews, we booked a vacation to Petit LaFitte the first week of February. We couldn't have been more pleased that we chose this resort! There are hotel rooms and bungalows on the beach. We stayed in the hotel. The room was spacious with a nice balcony that had a table and chairs. There...

Warm, friendly staff that made us feel like part of the family. Safe, casual, gorgeous! We stayed in the bungalows and enjoyed having no TV but instead, a beautiful view of a sandy palm tree promenade. The food was fantastic! The kids made friends and had a blast. Loved the monkeys too!

Tucked in-between the mega-resorts, this more boutique hotel provides a genuine and unbeatable mix of service and helpfulness, friendly and welcoming atmosphere, fine rooms and amenities, great beach and a bar to enjoy good drinks with the waves rolling in, and sufficient tranquility for perfect relaxation. We had our 6 month old son with us, and the team and crew...

The hotel is clean and quiet. We stayed in the bungalows. The AC worked perfectly. It's not a crazy party/loud music hotel which was perfect for us. If you want a chair on the beach with a palapa (dried palm thatched roof umbrella), you have to go out and put a towel on your seat at 6:30 am or so....

Best kept secret around. Have them schedule taxi from/to airport. About 45 min drive. Difficult to find at night if your not familiar with things. Friendliest staff we've ever encountered. Nothing but good for all areas.

I had been to the old Capitan Lafitte's (and Kailuum, a wonderful paradise next door) years ago. I wanted to go somewhere relatively easy to get to from the Midwest where I could relax and not have to worry about finding restaurants, somewhere safe, and on the beach. Lafitte's filled the bill! I have to say that the best part...

After tedious wedding planning, my wife and I wanted a relaxed, calm, and easy-going environment to spend our honeymoon. The place was absolutely perfect. We stayed in a Bungalow with Breakfast and Dinner included and, in addition from being relatively affordable, it was truly an incredible experience. The staff is friendly, helpful, and fun (David, in particular). They help with...

We are some of the many "repeat" guests that return to this wonderful hotel year after year- 27 years to be exact! We first discovered it when it was Capitan Lafitte, a short distance north of the present Hotel Petit Lafitte. Readers may wonder what it is that would make so many come back year after year when there are...

We had a great time at Petit Lafitte. The people, food, accommodations and guests were wonderful. Breakfast and dinner were included and were delicious. 2 for 1 Happy Hour is always fun and there was entertainment a few of the nights. The view was breathtaking!
