Best place in Akumal for Chela

Just got back from Akumal and Lol Ha proved to be a saving grace. Great outdoor atmosphere. We went there twice. Christian proved to be the better server/waiter but both times were good. The pizza was great! We also had fish (grouper) quesadillas. Plain and simple but ok. Cheaper, better... read more

I've lived in Akumal six months now, and I've eaten at Lolha Snack Bar and Lolha Restaurant more times than I can count. I feel comfortable giving this establishment five stars. It is very important to distinguish between the two areas, because they really serve different functions. The snack bar is simple, tasty casual food: burgers, tacos, salads, etc...or sip... More

This was an unexpected find. Beachside with the best margartias and food we experienced. Go for happy hour when the crowds are gone and the sun is setting. Just a wonderful way to end the day.

This is an amazing spot to sit and have a few cold beers, and just take in the fantastic view of the bay. The food is decent, but nothing great. You go here for the atmosphere, not the food.

I had the shrimp stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon and they were great! I would recommend trying this restaurant for sure! If you plan on snorkelling you can... More

After an early morning swim with the turtles, the six in our party sat down for breakfast. The beachfront location is awesome and our table overlooked the sand to provide a wonderful view of Akumal Bay. The menu had a wide selection, food was good (nothing special), and it came out in a reasonable amount of time. The average service... More

Enjoyed the service, food and location. Other beach bars I have been to let you use their palapas for the minimum price of set food/drink, however, this place charged just to use their fenced off area. Good spot though, included use of bathrooms (charged other people), waiters friendly and we were able to get all day wifi. The palapa location... More
