“Great food but the waiter tried to rip us off”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

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 guy was really nervous giving it to us. Had we just paid what he asked and thrown in a good tip for the great meal he probably would have pocketed extra 200-250 peso tip. The place is really busy and it's not like they wouldn't make good tips honest way. We would go back for the food but made us realize how careful you have to be here

I am very concerned about the waiter experience you had. This is the second comment I get about this sort of thing this month so I know we have a problem and I need to resolve it. I am very grateful for your review so we can get to the bottom of this.

If you could send me a message about the time you were there , what you ordered and if you remember which waiter, we can certainly work with that to ensure it does not happen again.

Any waiter caught doing this is automatic dismissal. Thank you again!

Sincerely.

“Great Beach Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

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 Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

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!

“You can depend Lol Ha”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

We've vacationed in Akumal for a week bi-annually for the past twenty years, and always breakfast here our first morning and enjoy dinner here on our last evening. With their choices of traditional Mayan and American dishes, everyone is always pleased. Lol Ha, with it's lovely view of the bay, excellent wait staff and selection of dishes always strengthens our already considerable affection for Akumal. The rest of the week we enjoy Que Onda, Turtle Bay Cafe, Cueva, Buena Vida, and now Tequilaville and Pancho Villa for dinners.
