My brother and I stayed at the Bananarama Dive Resort for a week in September 2014. We had the all-inclusive meal plan and ate all but one meal here. The food was quite good. We really liked the pizzas and the BBQ pulled pork. Can't think of a think we didn't like. What really stands out is the attentive service.... More

We ate here many times over our week's stay. The first night they were really busy and our waitress was a bit flustered and a little slow, but hey we were on vacation on a beautiful island so we dealt with it:) It was a Sunday night and they had the crab races and we had a lot of fun... More

You should go watch the fire dancing and crab races on Sunday. We ate dinner and our service was the fastest on the island. The food is basic fare, plentiful, good quality and reasonably priced. It was a loud and busy place, but we enjoyed the atmosphere.

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
