This is just an honest-to-goodness beach cafe. We had really tasty simple Mexican food - well cooked. Friendly and efficient service. Bustling atmosphere on Xmas day lunch. And excellent cocktails.

Good food, I ate a "Plato Mexicano mixto" but the portions were really too small for the price. Good service and nice beach view.

I heard they sold their soul when selling land behind the restaurant to a large resort. How sad. The magic of akumal is slowly losing its... More

We stopped to have a late lunch at Lol-Ha two days before Christmas....obviously the restaurant was packed, the beach was packed, but we thoroughly enjoyed our meal! Our waiter was fantastic and the service was lightning fast. Everything ordered was delicious and well-served. We highly recommend the Mexican torta sandwiches (we had chicken and steak...both were excellent!). Three of us... More

There are two Lol-ha experiences happening. There is the pizzaria, bar, snack place and then there is the upscale restaurant portion. My wife and I dressed for the occasion, expecting to avail ourselves of the high end restaurant. This was closed and though they trade to down sell us on their low end we walked away. We were extremely disappointed... More
