Great family hotel

Would recommend Fri, Aug 21, 2015
My 2 children (ages 10 and 14) and I stayed here for a week. We had an excellent experience. The breakfast was delicious with lots of great menu items. We enjoyed the swimming pool, game room with ping pong and pool table, and of course, the lovely white sand beach. I appreciated the location - close to Playa, but quiet and cozy. There is a great pizza place within walking distance to the south. One of our highlights at the hotel was one evening when a group of colorful costumed Mayan actors performed singing and dancing with local instruments! They were so amazing and memorable!

Peace and silence

Would recommend Sat, Jul 25, 2015
I have stayed at this place for the third time during 10 years. I was more than happy to find out that it still exists and was not devoured by resorts around (although they unfortunately swept the beach both sides so the disco is heard even here at nights). It is a place where people whisper even in the swimming pool not to bother others, and the courtesy and care of the staff is just amazing, not to mention the excellent food and simple (in the best meaning of word) design of the hotel.

Love Petit Lafitte

Would recommend Fri, Jan 16, 2015
This is a wonderful retreat. Understated elegance and great service, no crowds - just peace and the beauty around you!

Dining

The garden view rooms are lovely - if you don't go for the ocean front room, don't bother upgrading to ocean view. The garden view is great.

Great Relaxing Beachside Hotel!

Would recommend Mon, Feb 10, 2014
Great smaller hotel on the beach. Staff is one of the best I have ever experienced. We had planned excursions for our trip but did not leave the hotel for five days. Rooms were very clean, grounds were well taken care of, and of course the beverages are not to be missed. I will be back again soon.

Relaxing Ladies Getaway

Would recommend Thu, Jan 30, 2014
I almost don't want to tell everyone about how great this hotel is because then everyone will go here. My best friend and I went here on a mini relaxing vacation to escape the cold weather. We are both in our mid thirties. Let me start off with a disclaimer. This is a small, simple hotel with all the basic necessities that you need for a relaxing, fun vacation. But if you are looking for one of those larger, all inclusive (think Sandals) resorts, this is not the place for you. The beach is amazingly beautiful here and they have paid the taxes so outside vendors can't harass you to buy anything while you are relaxing on the beach. All the staff are kind, accommodating and work very hard. I believe most have been working there for years. And they really make an effort to know your name. They also know you are on vacation, so they won't bother you. The breakfast and dinner is included with your stay. The breakfast is by far way better than the dinners. There is fresh fruit and fresh orange juice daily. I have never tasted anything more delicious than the pineapple and the OJ. Dinner won't knock your socks off and it's a limited menu. But for what you are paying, it's totally worth it. And you can always go next door to Coco's (which is really, really good food too) or into town if you want something different. Fresh, bottled water is provided for free and is such a nice amenity. There is the choice of staying in the bungalows or the hotel rooms. We stayed in the hotel and really liked it. It wasn't fancy, but it was clean and had all you needed. TV channels are limited, but if you went to Mexico to watch TV then you might as well stay home. Some people said the bungalows were dark at night but romantic. All the guests are nice too. This place is good for couples, families and friends going on vacation. But there is no party scene here. The bar on the beach is great and reminds me of the movie Cocktail. But don't expect late night wildness. Oh! And we always felt safe staying here. I think we even slept with all our windows open. I had my doubts about our safety before going. And downtown Playa del Carmen is a modern, European like downtown. Think Barcelona meets Miami.

Attractions

Bring USD cash. Everyone will accept it and prefer it. Rent a car to save money on cab fare. There is really only one main highway that takes you everywhere and lots of signs so I think it will be easy to get around. Go to Tulum because it's gorgeous. And go to the beach right outside the Tulum ruins. We wish we could have stayed there longer. You can even snorkel in Tulum. Skip Akumal. It felt like a tourist trap to me.

We had a great time. Staff was excellent and extremely helpful as we were first timers to the area. Food was outstanding, and we did not want to leave. So much to see and do. We will definitely return.
