Having been to Sand Bay several times in recent years for a family week-end i was very surprised to read the harsh reviews prior to my recent visit. I have to agree with the majority and say this camp has gone downhill drastically.
Friday arrival started with a mad rush to reception to obtain chalet keys which were not released until 4pm !!!
We were then informed that the dining room would only be open for one hour for evening meal (6-7pm) & breakfast from 8-9am...If your late you don't eat. The soup was cold on 2 of 3 nights and when we complained to the waitress she disappeared ? Apart from the soup the rest of the food was quite edible, if you managed to get some before it ran out.
Entertainment, i use the term loosely, was a performance by the Blue Coats which was completely underwhelming - it seems they didn't learn anything from Scott Paige who was an excellent performer & arranger.
Couldn't get a drink from the bar during the Rugby & Football on Saturday as it was closed till 5pm !
Saturday's entertainment was Debbie Farrell (Vocalist) who proceeded to let 3 audience members take over the show.
On Sunday the bar actually opened at 11.45am then closed at 12.30 (why bother). Evening entertainment was again performed by George John (Blue Coat) who has the stage presence and personality of a plank, after every song he pulled a sheet of paper from his pocket to see what was next.
I think it safe to say we as a family will not be returning to Sand Bay as long as PONTINS are involved.
