It's just such a beautiful place. Food is great and the service impeccable. Little spendy, but worth it. Try the Mayan coffee for dessert. It's fun to watch them make it.

When I go to Akumal Bay beach, I tend to rent a chair at Lol-Ha. I really like that aspect of their business. It's only $7.00 for the day, and greatly adds to my comfort level while at the beach. The chairs are all in a fenced-off space, with ample shady areas and areas exposed to the sun. I also... More

I recently tasted the combination plate you ordered and realized it needs work! I agree it is not up to our standards and we are working on getting a really tasty Mexican combination plate that incorporates the true tastes we were trying to get! I am so sorry you did not get a taste of the new improved version. Please... More

Full menu of International foods served fresh with great service and right on the best beach around. Try breakfast or dinner on the outdoor deck. Full moons make even more beautiful. Friday night prime rib special is my favorite.

We loved the location of this place as it is on the beach metres from the sea, so there are amazing views of the beach as the sun sets. All of our table had the churros which were amazing!! Really fun place, very Mexican, we loved it! It was quite busy but we were still able to get a table... More

We came here annually in late July -- early August when our children were younger to swim with sea turtles in Tortuga Bay, and Lol-Ha was welcome relief from the sun. This was the first time back in six or so years and the increased number of people swimming on their own and in snorkeling tours was staggering. The beach... More

Normally, a lot of locals means great food! We tried a few things on the menu and it was a nice change from our resort food. TRY THE CHURROS!! We went back for a second round.

Great place to get a meal before or after snorkeling with the turtles. The food was tasty and the service was good. Just try to remember that slow is the pace and no one is in a hurry to "turn" the table over so sit back and relax and enjoy and remember you are on vacation!

Had lunch here between snorkeling sessions. They did not open for lunch until 11:30, so they gave us a table and then ignored us for a while. Service was OK, food was uninspiring. There are showers and a rest room in the back, but it will cost you 20 pesos to rinse off and 5 pesos to use the toilet... More

For the last three years while vacationing in the Akumal area I have wanted to visit Lol-Ha restaurant. We should have saved our money and eaten at the resort. Both my husband and I had the shrimp dinners, he had the breaded and mine was cooked in garlic and butter. His was much better than mine. While waiting for our... More

I regret that your experience at Lolha made you decide not to return! It's so unfortunate that you had a fly and bee problem and that the food was not as good as it should have been. We would really love for you to try us out again in the future. We have other options that are not as expensive... More

Our family enjoyed a lunch at Lol-Ha after a morning of snorkeling. Our drinks were very good, the homemade chips & salsa that we started off with were excellent! Our main meals were great, our waiter was top notch. The restaurant is very "open" with a thatched roof and you can look right out to a wonderful view of the... More
