My partner and I have just returned from a midweek break at Sand Bay. We have been regulars there for at least 9 years. Although they are undergoing many changes with the Pontins take over, they are still providing excellent service and value for money. The changes involve self service in the restaurant, which was not a problem to us and I think it provided a more relaxed approach to meal times. There are helpful staff around to help those with less mobility. Other than that the food provided was still very nice and hot. Aesthetically there are things that need maintaining but give them a chance to sort these things out as the staff too are having to work through the changes. We had a lovely week, entertaining and relaxing but with plenty to join in with if you wanted to. I would certainly recommend that you give this fantastic place a visit. I know nobody likes change, but keep an open mind and go as if it is your first visit. If it is your first visit enjoy. The prices available this year are excellent. We have just booked to go back in a couple of weeks. My only dislike of the new set up was that the Bluecoats were introduced as Bluecoat Jo or Bluecoat Mark, which I found a bit demoralising to staff and an insult to the guests intelligence. This might be acceptable for younger family camps but not for an adult camp. We did not get chance to mention this to the entertainments manager as he was not visible very often and did not speak to us. Maybe when we visit next time. Please come and see for yourself then make your own mind up. Don't look back, look forward. There is a lot of good things there that is the same as it was. There is a great resident band, so we had live music as well as visiting cabarets. Warm rooms and friendly staff. Ideal for us. Give it a go. Tina & Viv.
