“Lola's is a Must Do!”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

Not sure I can add to other reviews - this place has it all! If you are staying at the JW Marriott, go to the beach, turn left (south) and you can walk to Lola's in about 30-45 minutes. A beautiful walk on a beautiful beach!

“Great experience”
Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

As the pervious posts say, great atmosphere right on the beach. You could stay all day and run up to the bar for something to cool you off. We were fortunate to see Lola (an 800 lb. pig)make the dash from the restaurant down to the beach to bath in the surf...what a sight! This is a big surfing restaurant and bar that is enjoyed by many. Great for the family. Lola's is only open for breakfast and lunch. You could walk there from the Marriott but it is a little long and you have to go during low tide. Closed on Monday's.

“Incredible atmosphere and location!”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

Food was good, but not the best. View, location and atmosphere, however, was up there with the best I've ever experienced. The service was excellent as well.

“Awesome!!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

This place is a MUST if you're in the Playa Negra area! The beach is GORGEOUS; with LOLA'S right there, plan on staying all day!

A very relaxed, welcoming atmosphere offering open-air beach dining and great music under beautiful shading palm trees, what's not to like? They offer unique choices of delicious food (try the picante pizza!) and cold, cheap drinks...smoothies for the kids!

P.S. Lola is a huge pig that wanders around. :) Take your camera; you won't ever want to forget this place!
