Bunch of us came to Akumal Beach to snorkel and ended up hanging at Lol-Ha for a couple hours after we came out of the water. We had apps and cervezas. Everything was good, maybe a little pricey but hey with that view it was worth a couple extra pesos.

What's up with LOL-HA? When we dined here, on multiple occasions, six years ago and had a very good experience. This time our experience was terrible. The waiter was outright rude!! RUDE!! We have travelled in Mexico for over 30 years, speak passable Spanish and are friendly and kind. This waiter was horrible!! In addition my wife ordered the Coconut... More

I am so very sorry you had such a bad experience on this occasion! We do have some new waiters that I am thinking might be the problem , due to lack of time to train them , but I am certainly going to go over all their track records because only the best, and most serviceable and honest are...

Had lunch there today. Great food as usual and good prices. When we asked the waiter for the bill he said it was 670 pesos verbally. I had already been told when in Mexico to always make sure you get a written bill so I asked for one. Sure enough the bill was for 570 pesos. You could see the... More

We ate lunch under this cute palapa beach restaurant. The atomosphere was great, service quick and food delicious. They make an AWESOME Tom Collins! They had plenty of menu options and we were all happy!

Great place to catch a little lunch and refreshment after walking the beach & swimming a bit. Our group had either tacos or fish burgers for lunch and we enjoyed the food. I did try the specialty drink, mezcalita or something like that, sorry to say I did not like it... Stick to regular margaritas, they were good!
