“Massage from Bret was fantastic!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We drove out to Lola's and everyone's food on spot on. (The mahi-mahi fish and chips is an original twist.) On impulse, got a massage from Bret and it was perfect. Very highly recommend. I joked with him that my Costa Rica vacation was "all downhill after this great massage!"

“Pitch Perfect”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

if you had to pick a place to represent the best of Costa Rica, this might be the spot. a beach grill and bar with modern class and a great laid back feel. set amongst a mostly shaded palm grove, Lola's is right in front of an excellent beginner to high intermediate surf break. you can emerge from the waves and top the experience off with a killer smoothie, veggie burger, or cocktail. truly awesome.
