Bless!!!! The staff at the Thirsty Turtle were amazing. Where in the world did you find such amazing workers? Good for you Bananarama owners for hiring these fun, hardworking pleasant employees. We always made the effort to get served by the talented,charismatic Albert, the beautiful Shanny, the handsome Steven Raymond, the very sweet Sheena, the hard-working and great dancer Victor...

Great food, good times, especially on St. Patrick's Day. Carolina Walter, one of the wait staff at the Thirsty Turtle was the friendliest person in Roatan. We will definitely visit when we go back and enjoy the festivities again.

The Bananrama Dive and Beach Resort was "taken over" by the Naughty Nine dive group and I don't think they will forget us for a while!! Look for the dollar bill initialed by all and stapled to the beach shutter at the bar. We managed to score the Green Sizzle Special which gave us a weeks accommodation, transportation to and...

We were the first " semi inclusive guests" at the resort with sun wing. The meal plan needed to be clarified and the owners, Jeff and Louis were very helpful and responsive to our concerns. The a la carte menu was nice option compared to buffet meals offered at most all inclusive resorts. The vintage pearl meal was exceptional! Staff... More

I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bananarama. I liked that the resort was smaller, giving a very warm, relaxed and cozy atmosphere. The resort is located right on West Bay beach with stunning sunset views. The rooms/cabanas are basic, but comfortable and clean. As they say on their website - they're rooms are for sleeping! Meliza was there everyday after... More

We just returned from a week's stay at Bananarama. Prior to going, we did all of the typical research and scoured the internet. We don't regret our decision to stay at Bananarama for a moment. It has the personalized one-on-one service you find in an all-inclusive resort -- but it's not an all-inclusive. The staff goes out of their way... More
