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.

located right at the beach where you snorkel. Had an excellent lunch, very casual, (we were in bathing suits). Price is reasonable, service was great and staff very friendly.

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.

A great lunch super casual (no shoes and still in bathing suits!) but nothing lacking in the food department-great options with many of the traditional Mexican favourites. We had beef fajitas, chicken tacos, and coconut shrimp. The pina colatas were tasty and refreshing (including the non-alcohol options for the kids). Service was quick so we could get back to the...

Nice setting. Overpriced for the average quality, as you would expect given the location - but the only real place to get some food if you're on the beach there for a few hours.

We went as a group of 5. Sat down and waited five to ten minutes for a waiter. When he came, he didn't smile and seemed very unhappy. We told him we were going to have drinks and then order food in a bit. We then asked if if we could leave grandma sitting there to have drinks in the... More
