Hola quasi62, We hope you had a pleasant flight home, even though leaving our beach is hard and one misses it right away. Your description of the property seems very adequate from our stand point. Thank you for concocting it. We’re glad that in the end you left with the feeling that you received more than what you expected. We...

It was awesome to walk onto the white sand straight from our bungalow. The hotel staff were very accommodating. The hammocks outside our door were actually comfortable and the best way to get lost in our summer novels. Three of us enjoyed a relaxing massage on the beach. Our meals were fresh and delicious very night. I would recommend Petit...

This is our second time here and it never disappoints. Private, secluded and quiet little resort North of Playa. Pristine beach to swim and snorkel, uncrowded pool and good breakfast and dinner selections. David, Luis, Lorena, Javier and the rest of the staff are very friendly and attentive. They even prepared a delicious fruit cake with a candle for our...

This is not a luxury place, but frankly I was looking for a place like this. I wanted to avoid the crodws. It is really relaxing and staff really takes care of you. I asked for extra pillows and got them iso-facto. Little beach but very nice if you walk 10 meters to the north. very clean room and plenty...

Dear VíctorG, Thank you for your lovely review. We read a lot of positive comment in it, and makes us wonder how come it is only a 3 out of 5 points? :( I guess the words speak louder than the dots.

Stayed the last 2 nights of our Mexico vacation. We chose Petit Lafitt due its location outside Playa del Carmen, and closer to the airport. Its located in a quit area right at the beach. Further there is a nice pool. Its a bit more outside Carmen, than we expected. We walked along the beach to town (5½ km) and...

What a wonderful small hotel! We stayed in an ocean view room (the bungalows looked very inviting, we will choose them next) and the view was great. A very relaxed, laid back experience. Good food, good drinks and a wonderful, warm staff. The beach front was immaculately groomed and we never had an issue with chairs at the beach or...
