My wife and I stayed at Timothy Beach in February. It was our first time to St. Kitts and we wanted an island/ local experience. You'll find that at Timothy Beach Resort. No frills, close to the strip and a great island resort. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. The water is clear, the beach is brown from the volcanic sand. I would recommend getting a kitchenette because breakfast and lunch can be a little pricey. Get an ocean front room as well. The monkeys in the mornig were fun to watch and the night time view of the mountain and the lights were cool. We will stay there again on our next trip.
