Worst service on the planet, they look unhappy and unfriendly and uneverything. The thirsty turtle may have stay thirsty because of the service. It’s hard to mess up breakfast... but for this guys was challenge accepted! Terrible.

The Thirsty Turtle is a wonderful bar and grill that is literally footsteps off the beach and so close to the ocean that everyone would drown if a big wave came in (at least everyone who was drinking their Long Island Ice Teas - all...More

The food is fine, bar/beach food. My husband had the steak taco's (his stomach hurt after) and my daughter had the quesadilla (soooo much cheese). Cold beer and nice wait staff though!

Every night they have a special, and they are always good. The smoked meats, pork, ribs, chicken, are all delicious. The grilled fish and fried whole fish are great. They offer a wide assortment of side dishes but I like the beans and coconut rice...More

I don't think the Thirsty Turtle has pizza since there is another restaurant on the property that is a pizzeria. It's mostly bar food etc. I did not eat at the pizzeria. You could write Bananarama and they will get back to... More

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 for everyone at Bananarama!
