The Petit Lafitte staff was awesome and made my wife and I felt very welcome. We rented a bungalow and it was great to be able to walk into the sand! Rocks and seaweed made water entry tough. A short walk up the beach and entry was much easier. The halfboard food was very tasty and we ate pretty much...

This was both our first time to Mexico and Petit Lafitte. My wife always look for places we can spend a week in the summer. We look for quiet, no crowds, good food, water and a view. This place fits the bill! Service: This was completely amazing. You get individual treatment 24/7. They are not obtrusive, but always polite. They...

I just returned from a vacation at Petit Laffite, and i must say, this place earned a special place in my heart. I had bungalow #1, right on the beach, and the place was perfect. I'm a creature of comfort, so having A/C 24/7 was priceless for both my girlfriend and I. We came here after spending a few days...

I would prefer to say good things about this property but I wouldn't stay there again and I rely heavily on other people's reviews so need to be honest.

Dear Kay, Thank you for your sincere review. We respect your opinion and lament the fact that you would not come back here. We appreciate your positive comments about the service, breakfast, the pool and the effort of our staff to deliver. The standard section of the hotel is certainly some 25 years old.

Reviewed 7 July 2015

Liked this hotel, although probably wouldn't stay here again. If you want the ability to go out and about and do things, it's a decent length away from Playa itself (about 7km along the beach), so walking takes a while depending on the tides etc, and a cab was about $30 each way which we thought was steep so didn't...

This is our favorite place. My girls and I love the environment quite, friendly , secluded. The food is delicious especially the fresh Coco from the trees.

“Oceanfront bungalow #9 did not disappoint. Bonus, oceanfront bungalows are close enough to the beachfront bar that our 7 yo felt at ease with us leaving the room after bedtime to enjoy adult social time and could easily find us if needed. The bar is situated in a way that the bungalows are sheltered from any bar noise.”
