The Thirsty Turtle is the beach restaurant of Bananarama Beach Resort. I can only speak great things of this place, whether is the food or the service. Everything was awesome! Hands down one of the best restaurants on the island!

the food and service were good, the bar served the normal bar fare and was consistent; bar seating and tables available and each night there was some 'form' of entertainment from movies to live music

Located right on West Bay beach in Bananarama Resort, with a beach bar, plenty of sturdy tables and chairs, it is all you want for a nice Margarita or Salva Vida (local beer). The pizzas, made on site in a wood-burning oven are excellent, and...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

Description
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!
