Beautiful setting but bit disappointing
Posted Feb 27, 2016
I rely on the reviews so I will be honest with my opinion. Timothy Bay has a beautiful location and has the potential to be a first class resort, but right now it is just a Caribbean resort that needs some improvements. Three days I had to go to the desk to get soap for the shower, in spite of leaving housekeeping a note. This is the first time I stayed at hotel that did not provide shampoo. It’s a little thing but it shows some of the shortcuts they are taking. We had a car so we went out and bought shampoo. The snorkeling at their beach was among the best of the 8 or 9 other beaches we tried snorkeling. After a full day in the water I expect and good shower, soap and shampoo. The toilet seat lid fell off almost every time we raised the lid. The one light would not turn off so we had to pull the plug, only 2 lights in the room so we needed to use both. House Keeping did OK but they should have noticed these problems and had them fixed without me going to the desk. There are a number of good restaurants within a 10 minute walk right down the road. I highly recommend Rituals Coffee shop right down the road for a great breakfast at a very reasonable cost. The food at the resort was ok it could be better, and presentation of food can be better. Staff was friendly. Place was ok but left us disappointed. If you want quiet, take a room on back side because loud music from the beach bars 100 yds off the Resort till 1 or 2 am many nights.
