went for Happy Hour and stayed for dinner because every dish I say that left the kitchen was worth ordering. I had the deep fried grouper and can promise that I will have it again

Beautiful setting. A bit crowded on the day we were there b/c of the World Cup. But it was an unforgettable experience watching the finals with people from all over the world. The food was good and my son could run into the water while I watched from our table.

It's just such a beautiful place. Food is great and the service impeccable. Little spendy, but worth it. Try the Mayan coffee for dessert. It's fun to watch them make it.

When I go to Akumal Bay beach, I tend to rent a chair at Lol-Ha. I really like that aspect of their business. It's only $7.00 for the day, and greatly adds to my comfort level while at the beach. The chairs are all in a fenced-off space, with ample shady areas and areas exposed to the sun. I also ate at Lol-Ha on my recent stay, and was disappointed. The food presentation was lovely -- but frankly, the meal itself was mediocre. I got a combo plate of Mexican dishes. The meats were very dry and the food was tasteless. I requested their habanero condiment, and that saved the day. It was well-made and at least added some flavor to a basically dull plate. So, thumbs up on the chairs, as well as on the fact that the restaurant is right on the beach (lovely) but thumbs down on the food itself.

I recently tasted the combination plate you ordered and realized it needs work! I agree it is not up to our standards and we are working on getting a really tasty Mexican combination plate that incorporates the true tastes we were trying to get!

I am so sorry you did not get a taste of the new improved version. Please come back and try us again!

Sincerely.
