As stated in the subject, great food and pretty good service. One day we ran into or followed a huge group, needless to say we ( a few in our party) went hungry waiting.
Great place to have lunch or dinner and the nightly entertainment is perfect for an evening on a beach with a pina colada!
A must!

Thank Tony K

I did not stay at the hotel, but did go for a bite after a day of diving.

The restaurants/bar food is AWFULLLL!!! I went there for a late dinner, knowing that it would be the typical "bar food" (I define as everything is fried, sandwiches and fries). I ordered a simple wrap, took a bite,.. and could not continue. They can definitely improve this.

The bar scene looked fun, but since my food was bad I did not give it a chance.

Marcela,

We are very concerned that you had this experience which is uncommon for us. We do get the occasional complaint on slow service which typically takes 20 to 25 minutes from the time the server puts the order in... If you can let me know who your server was, the day you came and what you ordered I will send you a check to make this right. You can contact me privately. In the future I would suggest that you mention this immediately to the server. We would be more than happy to exchange items if you felt the food was not up to par.

Sincerely
Louis

We ate there two nights. Saturday they had an amazing rib special 2 for $25 with a choice of two sides (Get the coconut rice and beans!). Sunday night we came back again with amazing entertainment --- Crab races to raise money to benefit women with HIV on the island also incredible fire dancer show. The dinner special was a grilled fish filet with a tequila lime sauce and sautéed vegetables for 2 for $25 that was phenomenal. BE SURE TO ASK FOR VICTOR --- Gave us the best seat in the house to watch the crab races, fire dancers, and also listen to the live island music! Overall a great experience with great cocktails and atmosphere!

Bellr16,

Thank you for joining us for a couple of really fun nights:) We do have some amazing activities and the entertainment is loads of fun:) I do suggest for future guests to show up early on Rib night... the Ribs are imported, smoked here and are nothing short of amazing... especially with the coconut rice and beans! Many of our specials have limited quantities as we prefer our food to be fresh and made from scratch each shift.

Thank you for your recommendation and for point out that Victor is an amazing server.
Sincerely,
Louis

West Beach at Roatan, Honduras is a good place to snorkel and the Thirsty Turtle Bar and Grill provides good food at fairly reasonable prices. Our server Victor was very helpful.

If you are a customer at this restaurant, you will have use of showers and bathrooms. The resort also provides beach security which reduces the risk of loss of your items.

There are still a lot of beach vendors selling their wares, so remember, if it's valuable, if you leave it home or on the ship, it can't get lost.

Takalevy,

Thank you for your comments and review. The restaurant is a ton of fun, but if you are only here a couple of hours on a ship you are going to miss the best parts. Each night we have different activity and special which our guests and locals really enjoy.

I do agree that our security is fantastic and do help with the vendor problem... they secure our commercial area of the beach from vendors and keep the vendors out of our resort areas as well... which can make a huge difference in your overall experience of the island.

Thank you for your recommendation and for taking the time to give such a detailed review.
Sincerely,
Louis

This place is amazing, food and drinks were good, portions are very generous, Service was amazing just ask for Dishon , we did not stay at the resort but we were there everyday for both lunch and dinner, Couldn't have asked for a better waiter. Entertainment was great from Crab races, movies, trivia or fire dancers you can't go wrong a must visit if you in West Bay.
