Yucatecan Lime soup.....

This is what kept my family coming back to Akumal for over a decade now. No joke. We have a version we make at home when we long for our other "home away from home" in the Q. Roo. Fortunately, our limes aren't quite like the ones in the Yucatan, so we *have* to go back to relive the soup... read more

We went on a cruise to Cozumel, took the ferry to Playa del Carmen and by a taxi driver recomendation we end up at Lol-Ha. It is what we wanted, a place where we can rent a Palapa and some chairs and spend the day. We were a big party and the waiter took care of us. Food was ok,... More

Nice view, right on the beach of Akumal, but thats about it. My burrito platter came with store bought salsa, the only restaurant in Mexico that didn't serve fresh salsa that I've ever been to. All the ingredients were low quality and their margarita was very disappointing as well. There are more restaurants around, don't waste your money there!

Today I had Salmon Chimichurri Salad for lunch and it was great along w/cold Modelo Especial beer.The Bay was full of people , all having a ball. Smiles and chattering going on everywhere. Super enjoyable. BUT, if you... More

Gret food and location at a good price, Chicken parmigiana was superb, and you cant beat the beachfront setting close to washrooms and change rooms so if your going to the beach you are not far from the place to change and clean up for lunch or dinner

There are two restaurants. One is the bar; the other is a nice sit down restaurant. We ate at both and both were great. At the bar (lunch) I had lobster that was very good but the beef empanadas are fabulous. The burgers and hotdogs are very good as well. At the sit down restaurant (breakfast and dinner) The grouper... More

This place is just one of several places to eat etc. The whole bay is fantastic but make your own way there in a collectivo and get there early to see the Turtles better.

We went here several times during our one week stay. Food was pretty good and a couple of dishes were wonderful. Great place to people watch. We always managed to find a table with a good view.

This was a lovely place and if we could have been there without all the tourists it would have been a nice snorkel; however, even though we went fairly early in the morning, there were too many people there, too many novice snorkelers stirring up the water, stepping on the fragile environment, etc. The set up itself was nice- the...

Very American menu. When you order the 4 cheese pizza, know that they cover it with blue cheese, uck! Can order it without. Good drinks and food!
