The place is not the prettiest around, but if you ignore that the food is nice. Service is not bad, but could better. At night it had some live music, which depending on your tastes you could enjoy.

Whatever your reason is for visiting West Bay, or even Roatan, your trip won't be complete without a stop at the Thirsty Turtle Bar and Grill at Bananarama Beach and Dive Resort. The atmosphere is gorgeous, inviting, friendly and fun...and the staff are second to none! Marta, Derry, Sandra and Eddison are not only attentive and friendly bartenders but they... More

We had free shots and really good beer,chicken, and ribs! They sure know their way around a smoker. What's not to like? Another night, they had fire dancer that could crack the whip that was fire and he would set trails of flames in the sand. Very entertaining place with good food.

Every trip to Roatan I find myself spending hours at the Thirsty Turtle, after diving and for dinner. The food, drinks, and service is great. Martha's monkey la la's and mojitos, and service is awesome. I strongly recommend them. Edson and Martha are my favorite bartenders. I will definitely be back. Thank you Guys!!! Rudy

We love the Thirsty Turtle Bar and Grill. We visited many times during our visit. We were staying just a couple doors down so it was quite easy to hop over for dinner and drinks. We met some great people here and loved our bartender Edison Mann. He was especially fantastic as he shared a lot of information about the... More

My friend and I walked past this place multiple times and sort of "refused" to go into what looked like a tourist trap. We ended up racing in one day when we thought a storm was approaching and got lunch. Unexpectedly, it was a decent fresh lunch. She ordered the seafood special and I had the veggie burrito. She loved... More

I spent one week at Bananarama resort and I got the possibility to eat and drink everyday at Thirsty Turtle since I got the all inclusive. Everything was really typical and tasty! My favourites were plantains and seafood really well cooked! There is just a thing that I have to say about the breakfast...being European, it is really complicate not... More

To quench hunger after hours in the water or to kick back at the end of the day, this place is great. Friendly and fast service. Great prices. Unbeatable environment. We repeatedly made a meal out of the flash fried calamari and the smoothies.

We arrived on Sunday. I had previously read about Bananarama's Sunday night fun, so we went. Thirsty Turtle is the bar/restaurant (walking only 3 minutes on the beach from our condo at Infinity Bay up7 steps to this fun outside bar was so convenient) at the Bananarama Resort. On Sunday nights they have crab races to benefit area children in... More

Hands down this is my son's favorite place to eat in West Bay. We have been to Roatan twice and on each trip we frequent the Thirsty Turtle. IT has a great atmosphere, great drinks, cold beer and good food. Plus there is always an evening activity going on here!
