We stayed at the Timothy Beach Resort in August of '09. It was a really great experience because our room was about 100 feet away from the best beech on the island. We rented snorkeling gear a couple days and we saw some really amazing fish and coral. The Hotel's Sunset cafe is really good, I loved eating breakfast there and watching the sun come up. A short walk down the beech or 'strip' as the locals call it, will give you plenty of great beech bars and some really amazing food. Overall the hotel was clean and had all the amenities that we needed; Air Conditioning, 110v AC outlets, TV, etc. It is by no means as glamorous as the Marriott but in my opinion it is a better place to stay. The Marriott is like any resort you could find in Miami, It's really big and secluded, It really cuts you off from the culture of the island. All in all we had the most fun on this vacation and can't wait to go back.
WE PICKED THIS HOTEL IN THE MID-RANGE PRICE TO SAVE MONEY TO BE USED ON ACTIVITIES AND MEALS.IT WAS WELL LOCATED AND CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE.I WOULD RECOMMENT IT TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR THOSE FEATURES.
Recommend room #30 which is on the 2nd floor. Views of the Caribbean and the Atlantic from the balcony. Full kitchen with small table for 4 and 2 bar stools at the bar counter. Vervet monkeys live behind the resort in the mountains that come out in the morning and around 4pm. They are curious and make great subjects for your pictures. Beach bar serves up excellent rum punch and frozen drinks. Great place to watch the sunset! Excellent locale to walk to the Marriott and other restaurants...about 10 to 15 minutes away. Trade winds keep the bugs away and provide a nice breeze. About 100 channels on the TV to keep you and your family entertained. Bathroom has been updated with marble and fresh tile. All in all...excellent value for the cost!
We spend 9 days at Timothy Beach resort. All the employyes are extremely kind,everybody does their best to accomodate your needs and be helpful. Some rooms need some renovation, but is you look around at other hotels on the island you realize at Timothy they're doind their best. I would not reccomend Sunset Cafe. The food is not good and is overprices. BUT go to Shagaddy Shack the food is wonderful, fast service, great prices!! For breakfast buy something at Ram's or take a cab and go to a supermarket in Basseterre (it's not far away)and enjoy your breakfast in the room on the terrace !
my wife and I had a relaxing vacation. The room was comfortable and clean with an amazing view of the carribean ocean. we recommend eating dinner at the sunset cafe, it is a part of the resort, so you can watch the sun set on the ocean. the food and staff were really great too! Our waitress(juliette), was excellant, so was pearl, the accountant. my wife fell and required stitches, and Pearl on her off time went to the E.R. with us and stayed until we were through. She deserves a raise. best vacation we ever had!!!
TIMOTHY BEACH RESORT WAS A NICE PLACE TO STAY. IF I WOULD EVER GO BACK TO ST. KITTS I WOULD STAY AT SAME PLACE.
My husband and I did not stay at this hotel, opting for the Marriott instead, however, we will stay here when we return. St. Kitts is one of those rare islands that isn't over-built YET. This hotel has, by far, the best beach on the island. While it is small, it has everything you will need, including the best places to eat. The food 'huts' are just shacks but don't let that fool you.X at Kathy's makes THE BEST Rum punch, for just $3 and her chicken meal is fabulous! My husband thought the lobster at Shiggity Shack was the best lobster he had on the island and he had it 3 nights. We heard great things about this hotel and it's staff. It's not 5 star, but it's clean in it's appearance. We chose to jog from the Marriott over to this hotel in the mornings for their breakfast. While the price isn't great, it's better than at the Marriott restaurants. If you're there in the morning the wild monkeys come down off the mountain for a visit. Watch out, the locals seem to be a bit afraid of them. The next best beach would be Raggae Beach but there isn't a hotel there. There is a pig, a monkey and the monkey's best friend, a dog . No kidding, the monkey PETS the dog! Oh, and you will have to pay to rent a chair daily but it's only $5. Overall we enjoyed this island. Despite being a bit poor, the locals are very friendly and I felt very safe. We will be going back here for sure.
Food at the Sunset Cafe was very good and the sunsets from the restaurant were truly beautiful. Friendly and helpful staff and service. We made friends there that we hope to keep forever.
FRIENDLY STAFF. NICE VIEW IF YOU GET THE RIGHT ROOM. CABS ALWAYS AVAILABLE.
