I've been going to Akumal and the Lol-Ha for almost 30 years and in the past 10 or so found the formal restaurant to be a bit out of its league. This last visit surprised me no end - have the scallops! they were cooked to perfection and my table-mates made the same comments about the tuna and pork chops... More

Some of the best ceviche I've ever had. The location steps from our hotel on the beach was perfect. I also thought it was very well priced considering the lack of beachfront competition in such a popular area.

We went for dinner here. It was lovely. The food was tasty, the prices were great and there was a saxophone player. Will return on my next visit to Mexico.

Our group of 4 arrived around 6 pm on a weekday for happy hour and were seated right away at a beachside table. The place was lively but not too jam packed. Service was friendly and efficient. We all enjoyed our beers and cocktails, though the favorite was the mojito. We shared three appetizers, all generously portioned and delicious: the... More

We had lunch and dinner here two different days, and highly recommend this restaurant. It's situated right on the beach! The food is fabulous and the prices very reasonable. The pork spareribs were excellent, expecially with the homemade sauce! Chicken parmesan was good, but lacked sauce (we could have asked for some). Pizza was excellent, with lots of cheese and...

Vegan empanadas as well as other vegan choices; Mexico is so good to me! We had a perfect corner table overlooking the beach so we could watch the waning light and the beach goers reluctantly packing up after their day on the beach. Service was good, friendly and unhurried, just right for our evening. Open-air, good food, nice drinks, perfect... More

We visited this resto for breakfast and lunch. Breakfast was average, and a bit expensive overall. Lunch was better, served at the Palapas they rent near the beach. The resto is centrally located and gets a lot of traffic. We had 'finger foods" such as nachos, fish tacos, guacamole, soups, etc. They were all good. The beverages were also good.

We ate lunch here as a family of 3 whilst spending the day at Akumal Bay. Lol-ha provided the perfect spot to grab lunch and take in the spectacular views of Akumal Bay. We were lucky enough to get a table right next to the beach with great views and a cooling sea breeze. The food was great and the... More

I am so very sorry you had a negative experience with us. It's important for us to find out as much information as we can in order to improve on the dishes that are not up to par. We pride ourselves for our authentic Mexican dishes so this is concerning! Also, with no indication whether this was our beach bar... More
