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!

Good place to go for lunch or dinner. Can get quite busy, and live music can be a bit too loud. Fresh, tasty ceviche, decent prices, miny mojitos.

Pizza is great here as well. Reasonably priced. Service was great, food is fresh and tasty. One burger plate could feed two people and it was very tasty.

We waited for ages and I mean ages (even though there were not many other guests). After being ignored long enough we finally got a menu - the food we ordered was brought in a take away box (we ne er said anything like we wanted to havefood for take away), it was cold already when it came (we had a veg burrito) and the plates promised from the waiter never came either - drinks have been served in paper cups... all in all a not good place to go. they are slow do not pay attention and obviously do not care if you are a happy guest or not - food was not very good either unfortunately. we were totally tired after a long day exploring the northern part of the island so we just accepted it to be bad ... :/

We ate here a few times during our stay the pizza is very good, they have many different ingredients and the option to customize. Only thing is that if you order several pizzas the staff mixes them up and at the end you get a mix of the ingredients you asked for. We went 3 times and all 3 times at least one of the pizzas came with e.g one ingredient more than ordered or they mixed the ingredients between the different pizza’s. They should also hire more waiters, they only had 2 and the restaurant it’s big, they are running around the whole time and you have to wait longer than in other places to order or get the food.

This was my fourth time in the island and I have never tried a better restaurant. Good food, good prices, good customer service. I would highly recomend the pizza, ceviche and the shrimp! I would 100% come back to this restaurant next time I am here!
