This review is for the bar, not the restaurant. (with a name like thirsty turtle, are you expecting food?). They have events every night, from live bands to music trivia to karaoke. Drinks are reasonably priced, bartenders are nice, and the entertainment is appreciated.

Loved the 10 days we spent in Roatan, with the majority of our days ending at the Thirsty Turtle. The bartenders were all very friendly and entertaining and drinks were amazing.

For kids, it doesn't get any better than crab races, especially for a good cause. The kids were so excited they had this again this year. The live music was great, the food was good, but not great. Watch out on the beach out front, several pipes sticking up out of the sand....ouch. We will go back again next year.... More

Super great place to grab some grub and drinks! The lobster bites are fabulous. The drinks are fun and fresh. If you get a chance to hang out there, definitely do it. Trivia night is a blast. Service was awesome! After a few hours there, I didn't even care that it was raining!!!

We ate here our first night on the island, and started our trip out with a nice lobster dinner. We went back for lunch and had their shrimp special, it was very yummy.

Mojitos were great, good burger, pizza wasn't good. Nightly entertainment. Great beach location, and there are lockers for rent, which is handy.

Spent a week in August 2016 at Bananarama and had most meals at Thirsty Turtle. Drank many Salva Vida beers here too.

We always have a few meals, and many drinks at the Bananarama. I love their Monkey LaLa's. Their pizza is pretty darn delicious, and could possibly go down as our best dinner on the island! The "band" was a little loud - would have been a more enjoyable dinner if it were turned down just a notch. Other than that,... More

Plenty to eat great service and right on the best beach of the Caribbean! Choice for all family members and a must do on West Bay Beach.

The sandwich is a bit pricy, cost 15 usd with tips and tax. The bun and fries were nothing special but the shrimp was really fresh and sweet. The restaurant also offer free wifi too.
