Our family of 7 came to Lola’s 4 times during our vacation. Everyone including the kids loved it. The view can’t be beat and it’s nice to have the shade. The food is very good, but expect resort area prices. The service can be a...More

Lola’s is right on the beach. Good menu from salads to pitas to fish tacos. Food was very good and fresh. Average price for a meal is about $15; this is to be expected in a touristy place. Just remember that by law, service charge...More

We drove down from Tamarindo for lunch and an afternoon surf session. This place is a gem, a beach bar taken to a whole other level, and the food is as good as the ambiance!

I visited this restaurant last year in May and had a wonderful experience. Actually my experience was so good that I've told my friends and family that Lola's is the best restaurant that I had ever been to in my life. The food was fantastic,...More

This place is a joke. Overpriced substandard food. Rude and unhelpful staff. They get away with it because they are the only restaurant at Avellanas. Save your money. Lola's is a rip-off.

The only real bar in playa avellana is very stylish but the prices are very high. 5$ for a beer is a lot i think. The Breakfast and the Smoothies are very delicious but not really cheap too. The view is perfect you sit just...More

I had friends who visited Lola's in the past and they said we had to go. I'm so glad we made the trip. Beautiful shady rest from the beach and the best goat cheese/arugula pizza I've ever had!

A must do - we stayed in Tamarindo. Bit of an expense car service but hotel hooked up is with driver. View spectacular, all hand carved tables and chairs. View was really good and beer was really cold. Missed seeing the pig but met a...More

Great waves, Great beach, Great libations! The beach was quite and relaxing. It is obvious it’s a locals hangout. Worth visiting to grab something to eat and drink while watching the sunset of the Pacific Ocean.

I don’t remember seeing anything other than the restaurant. Right by the restaurant though, you can get a massage ($40 for an hour)! It’s not a spa - just some tables set up outside.

Left if you go into the gate of the JW Marriott you keep going to the left. It is worth the rough ride to it from the Marriott. Just something different from resort life. Make sure you also take a trip to Tamarindo... More
