The location is great... right on Akumal Bay. Snorkel and then walk right up. This is what the first two stars are for. The lack of the last three stars are for poor service and overly americanized average expensive food. This was the worst food we had in our 7 days in Mexico... which is a shame because the location... More

Not just your average beach bar restaurant!! Amazing views, great soups that change daily, and the best bartenders to help you with your Spanish. Thanks as always Alberto and Oscar for letting us stay longer than we planned today! Way to much fun

What a beautiful spot for breakfast and the menu is extensive!!! The coffee was wonderful and we had a leisurely meal. As I learned before visiting Mexico, you will have to ask for your check. The wait staff will not rush you nor will they give you your check without asking. Nice! The scrambled eggs and chorizo was fabulous!! This... More

Have not eaten dinner here for a few years but Lol-Ha is always great for lunch. They are busy but the service is good and the burger and fries are great.

Weather was very cloudy and decided to eat here with some friends. Cocktails awesome. Coconut prawns, stuffed japenos and chicken wings were fine although all frozen. Main courses of the specialty hotdog and burgers were fine. Service excellent along with value for money considering the absolute fantastic location. Would definitely recommend.

The food was great, lots of options for vegetarians and meat lovers alike, I had some pork tacos which were delicious while the rest of the family had assorted dishes ranging from seafood to quesadillas. The prices were a little bit higher than I've seen in Mexico but considering the proximity to tourist attractions it was fair. They were on... More

The restaurant is right on the Akumal beach where the tourist swim and snorkel. Its not a place for peace or quite if that is what you are looking for. The service is fair/good and above average Mexican food. Overall a good time and good experience.

Ate at both the informal and formal restaurants. Food was good at both and so was service. More formal dining had a wonderful musician playing various saxophones and it really contributed to the meal.
