About
This is the heart of the resort where guests gather to enjoy a meal, talk about their day of adventures, and join in the various activities available. The perfect spot to quench your thirst with a tropical drink or a fresh fruit smoothie and watch the beautiful Roatan sunsets. Start your evening right with a 2 for 1 drink from 4pm – 6pm. Try an appetizer like calamari, chicken wings, or nachos. Enjoy one of our signature dinner plates such as coconut shrimp, lobster with tropical sauce, or a whole fried fish. The Thirsty Turtle is truly the focal point of West Bay beach and offers fun games, live music, karaoke, fire dancers, crab races and other activities throughout the week. There is something

Sadly pizzas were undercooked but we took them home and heated them again for lunch the next day, they were tasty. Service was impossibly slow it took 20 minutes to get drinks from server and it wasn't busy.
