    Everything was great. Right on the beach. Clean rooms serviced daily. Competent and helpful, friendly staff. Great food. Breakfast and a chef prepared dinner were included in the reservation. Can't say enough good about this place! Concierge David has groomed an excellent staff and we can' wait to go back, only two weeks next time!

    New ownership left us sad!

    New ownership was very disappointing. Food services really needs help! 3 hours to complete dinner made us drive to Playa del Carmen to eat! We have been there 4 times in previous years, felt like strangers with new owners, and we will not be returning!!!!

    The hotel was located next to a sandy beach. The room was clean, quiet, comfortable, spacious, and well equipped. The meals were ample and tasty. The staff members were pleasant, helpful, and efficient; and, their attention bestowed upon the guests made one believe that the hotel was rated as a five star hotel. Thank you to all!!

    It was half board and they were not at all accommodative towards us being vegetarians, though we were told they would make a vegetarian dinner for us, we were served pasta with the soup from the buffet as our sauce and lied to saying it was something else. The manager apologised for this while checkout but it was pointless as our stay was over anyway. I paid the same amount at a different hotel for the next few days of our stay at Mexico and it was brilliant compared to this excuse of a hotel. Salty water runs through the taps so they advised us to use bottled water for brushing. But shower has salt water too. Would def not go back even if I was offered a free stay nevertheless pay so much for bad service.

    Lafitte's promotions say "simplemente diferente." They could say "siempre lo mismo." The same warm, welcoming staff to greet you on your return. The same good food and drink. The same comfortable bedding. And the same immediate access to beach and sea.
