This is right on the main beach in Akumal. It is causal. You can eat in your bathing suit. We went several times to get a drink or a snack. Menu has something for everyone. Food is good. Service is good

If you are visiting Akumal Bay to snorkel with the turtles or just take in the sun, Lol Ha is the perfect place for breakfast or lunch or dinner.

The food here is pretty good but more expensive than other places I have been.Very short walk from my resort. Good onion rings , shrimp , nachos . The service is what you would expect at a bigger tourist rather than local place but a nice place to have lunch

We visited Lo-Ha in 2015 and enjoyed our visit, the food is a bit pricey but was well prepared, the service was great and the entertainement was really good. Dave and Natalie were an awesome duet. Would visit again

I visit the Akumal area about once a year for the snorkeling and people watching. I have to admit, I haven't tried anything else on the menu, the fish tacos are that good! The service has always been good, the beer cold, and a beautiful view of the bay.

The location is what you come for and it is literally on the beach. Fairly typical food selections, reasonable prices.

Located directly on Akumal bay, this restaurants is there to serve tourists. Food is average, but again, you're paying for the location. Enjoy it for what it is.
