Un-Typical Playa del Carmen Beach Bungalow Hotel

In the globalized world of super-sized beach resorts, Petit Lafitte challenges the concept of ‘standardized luxury.’ The owners’ philosophy is simple – pamper their guests with personalized 5-star service, a tranquil, inviting atmosphere and delicious, freshly-prepared meals.

Petit Lafitte, with its private bungalows and hotel rooms, is nestled right on the white sandy beach of Riviera Maya just a few kilometers north of Playa del Carmen.

The story has it that a famous French pirate Jean Lafitte earned a pardon for his crimes, by aiding the United States in the War of 1812. It’s easy to imagine that after becoming a respected member of society, the ex-pirate retired to the Yucatan Peninsula and spent his days drinking Margaritas and lazing in a hammock under the palm trees. The secluded location, laid-back atmosphere, and comfortable, rustic-style bungalows are what he would have fallen in love with.

Stay Within the Coconut Grove for a Real Tropical Feeling

The 17 bungalows, nestled in the coconut grove and tropical gardens are air conditioned and feature a king size bed (or two double beds), a private terrace, a safe, minibar, coffee maker and Wi-Fi. The Petit Lafitte bungalows are divided into three categories: beach front, ocean view, and garden view. Regardless of which one you choose, you’ll still be only a few steps away from the turquoise waters of the Caribbean.

The hotel rooms overlook the beautiful pool area and Playa del Carmen’s white sandy beach. Just like the bungalows, Petit Lafitte hotel rooms are equipped with a king size bed (or two double beds), a private terrace or a balcony (depending on the floor) and other amenities, including a safe, minibar and a hairdryer. In addition to Wi-Fi, all hotel rooms also come with cable TV and a telephone. You can read more details in the Amenities section to choose the type of accommodation and the view that suits you best.

Activities at Your Hotel Beach or Throughout the Riviera Maya

Be ready to embrace numerous water sports activities right off the beach. Or if you are looking for hours of relaxation, just pick one of the chaise lounges around the pool or on the beach.

Should you want to spend a day, exploring the Riviera Maya and its Eco parks, Loco Gringo’s concierge service will be happy to arrange a tour for you. We are glad to provide a local perspective on the must see places and must do activities during your Riviera Maya vacation.

Bottom line is: Petit Lafitte is a perfect and unique Caribbean getaway for couples, families, and ex-pirates. To book one of its charming beach cabanas or hotel rooms, click “Add to Inquiry” and raise the bar for your next Riviera Maya vacation!
