I came to Petit Lafitte with my boyfriend for a 4 night stay. It was absolutely incredible. From the moment you enter, the staff is EXCELLENT! They give you a small tour of the grounds and are always there 24.7 to help you. The beach is beautiful, and you can take lovely long walks along the beach. The bar opens...

Dear DyviaP. We are very honored to be considered one of the best spots you have stayed at. Thank you! Evidently you are not the “all inclusive-large hotel” type of traveler. And we’re glad to hear that you would always prefer something like Petit Lafitte over the other, larger options. It is relieving and pleasant to read that you traveled...

Dear Vancouver Dreamer, Thank you for trying Petit Lafitte, we see that you liked it for the most part and there were some issues with the atmosphere that was affected by the presence of noisy children.

SUMMARY Full of families with children running around on the playground and taking up the entire pool and with a bar that is nearly empty by about 8pm, Petit Lafitte is definitely NOT for couples. The staff is extremely warm, welcoming, and competent, and the breakfasts are outstanding, but the dinners are mediocre. The beach and pool, while adequate, are...

The hotel is a little outside the town, so it is actually feels quite secluded. The beach is nice, though it can get windy during the day. Breakfast and dinner is included in the price. Service is friendly and cordial. This hotel is an amazing value.

Initially, we were somewhat dissappointed because the hotel was not in Tulum, as we mistakenly believed. It was also somewhat isolated and hard to go places from there. A few hours later, we realized these were its best qualities. The hotel is 45 min from Cancun's airport, not as far as Tulums. Yet, has all the qualities of a small...
