Playa del Carmen | Petit Lafitte Hotel | Playa del Carmen Riviera Maya Mexico
Now we are off the subject of all-inclusive, I'll throw in a plug for our favorite option, the half-board, breakfast and dinner, no booze. This is a family fun resort in Playa, small, cozy and safe. Actually a few minutes away from Playa, which gives you peace and quiet. They have a beachfront bar where you can get lunch and cheap drinks. The staff have been there for years and have a vested interest in making you happy. The happiest, most relaxed place we have ever visited, we go every year in December.
They will hook you up with reliable tours to anywhere and also have hotel owned cabs and vans for private trips. Check out tripadvisior, most of the reviews for this property are right on. We meet people there who have been staying for over 20 years.
