You cannot beat Bananarama for meals in West Bay. The atmosphere is lively and the view is fantastic. We were there for their special New Year's dinner, which was amazing. We had a platter of lobster tails, fish kebabs, calamari and a seafood salad. All were excellent!

This is part of the banana a group. Good dinner, reasonably priced, but really slow service on an evening when the restaurant was a little over half full.

We stumbled upon Thirsty Turtle while trying to find a place to watch the Dallas Cowboys game while on vacation. We bellied up to the bar and the bartender found the game on the TV behind the bar. We enjoyed some cold drinks and hot food. Had a terrific pizza and some nachos, your usually football watching grub. Bartender kept... More

There were 6 of us eating at Thirsty Turtle bar and there were enough different dishes to choose from. My sister had the shrimp taco (lots of shrimp). Two of our group had 2 different pizzas - very good. The waiters were attentive and listened to us.

We've visited West Bay several times and always check the daily lunch special, happy hour specials, and dinner special here. The food is always great. The drinks are very reasonably priced. (We love the Bananarama.) And their lobster bites are the BEST! Looking forward to returning!

We ate at the Thirsty Turtle several times while we were in Roatan over Christmas. The food overall was good, especially the pizza, and they had a food and drink special each day. They did seem to be occasionally understaffed, but the servers worked hard to keep up, and were never in a hurry. Overall, the staff were great. Food... More

I didn't have drinks here, but the food was AWESOME! I took it with me and had enough to share with my wife. The price was a little high, I thought, until I saw how much food there was.

We came here with our 4 kids while in port on a cruise ship, Friday Dec. 30th. It was incredibly crowded and they only had 2 bartenders working and 2 servers. We were on the beach, but never saw a server so I would go to the bar myself, which took 15 minutes each trip. They had no Sprite or... More

Unfortunately I do not have a positive review to write. Our family has been in Roatan for over a week and are completely accustomed to island service time, but this was a different case. It was ridiculous. Today was really busy in West Bay, but it does not excuse the terrible service we had! First when we arrived the server... More
