We walked down to Lola's at low tide from the JW Marriott. It's a pretty long walk, but worth it! The beach is amazing and great for finding all kinds of shells. We sat at the bar and watched them cook. I didn't see any...More

Although the road leading to Lola's will make you question if it's worth the trip, I promise it IS! Lola's has a wonderful laid back beach atmosphere. Very authentic for Costa Rica. The food is a bit pricey, but, you'll be glad you made it....More

We stayed in Playa Flamingo for a week. The owners of Surf Box suggested we visit Lola's, and it was amazing. We were able to eat, surf and watch an amazing sunset. The road there was bad, but worth trekking out for day...did not disappoint!!

Had a great time at Lola's watching the waves and surf. Water was warm and sand pristine. Lola's food is always great and their liquor prices reasonable....especially for the view they offer. Service is spectacular!

This is not the place to go if you are looking to grab a quick lunch on a busy day. The drive to get here is harrowing, back and forth plus lunch will take several hours total. Spend the afternoon here exploring the beach instead...More

If you want to enjoy some tacos or a sandwich while watching surfers and enjoying the sunshine, this is a great spot for lunch.

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
