The Timothy Beach Resort offers plain-Jane accommodations but location, location, location. It’s within 100 yards of the watersports center and popular beachfront Monkey Bar, and there’s only a 10-foot cliff and some rocks between the restaurant terrace and ocean. Unfortunately, hurricanes have left the beach littered with stones and the most comfortable swimming is a quarter-mile away.
Built on multiple levels cut into a steep hill, this property requires considerable stair-climbing. Staff --- including maintenance employees --- were invariably friendly and, except for some lapses during the busy breakfast hour, attentive. My room was comfortable but furnished only with the basics plus a cable TV (Which let me follow the stock market on CNBC).
The open-air restaurant was pleasant and the food ok, but I had better dinners at other restaurants nearby. Still, for basic lodging in a great location at reasonable prices, you won’t go wrong here.
