Lol Ha has both a find dining restaurant and the beach bar. This review is for the fine dining side. It's a wonderful spot for breakfast and I highly recommend the Eggs Charlene or their pancakes. Delish. Oh and the view ain't so bad either.

We took a day trip to Akumal, not knowing at all what to expect. It turned out to be one of the best days we had on this trip. Of the 3 weeks we vacationed, it rained only once...the day we went to Akumal...in buckets. So, when our palapa wasn't enough we had to find shelter, and so did the... More

Had an excellent lunch overlooking Akumal Bay. There was 11 of us there for lunch the first time. It was so good we had a second lunch there. They make great mojitos. The fish we had was fresh and tasty.

My husband and I went here for our last dinner in Mexico before heading home. We treated ourselves to the filet mignon and it was so worth it! Very reasonably priced compared to ordering one at home. The meat melted in our mouths and was cooked to perfection. We would return here in a moment!

Four of us went to go to Akumsl to go swimming with the turtles. This was the closest place to eat and the only reason we chose it, but it turned out the food was great. I had nachos al Pastor and a strawberry mojito. Friends had empanadas, cheese sticks, and shrimp tacos. We all enjoyed what we ate.

There are many choices of restaurants in Akumal. This one is great for fine dining. The restaurant is next to an outdoor one - you need to go inside of the north building to find Lol Ha. Good for larger parties, live music and delicious food...the menu is quite diverse and offers Yucatan dishes as well as Western style food... More

We enjoyed our lunch at Lol Ha. The food was good. We had beef and chicken empanadas and queso and chicken soup. It took a while for the server to take our order and for the food to come. So many people!! I would like to try it again but at a slower time.

So, I really love this place. It's a cool beach bar, moderately priced. The food isn't amazing but it's pretty good. I love the chili nachos. They have happy hour each day, which is nice. And you can use your credit card too. You have to get a voucher to go to the bathroom to keep random beachgoers from using... More

I love Akumal! Stayed in Akumal with my kids and husband for 3 nights before going to Cozumel. Had dinner at Lol-Ha beachside bar/grill our first night and everything was amazing. Service, food, delicious margaritas. Great prices too! We had breakfast every morning as it was included with Our hotel stay. Great breakfast. We usually upgraded from the included continental....

We really enjoyed setting up shop at Lol-Ha for our Akumal Beach day. First, they make excellent margaritas with the right combination of alcohol, sweet, salt and sour. The flavor remains the same throughout the drink. It begs another, but you have to be careful here...The food we ordered was the beach food which was quite good; especially the ceviche.... More
