We've just got back from a 4 night break at The Bay & didn't want to leave!!
Stayed in a Plymouth apartment which was lovely - really nicely furnished with modern fixtures & fittings & very clean. The only slight complaint would be that there was a distinct lack of free cupboard space for food storage & no drainage facilities for drying pots etc.
The site itself is still under construction but the building work didnt interfere with our stay at all.
It took about 10 minutes to walk down to the beach & it was quite steep so could be a bit of a struggle for some people. The beach itself is beautiful.
We used the gym while there (£4 per session), it was small but had enough cardio machines & plenty of free weights. The swimming pool, which is free, was very nice too and the steam room felt like something out of a sci fi film - try it!!! Again one slight niggle was that the changing facilites weren't particularly clean & very basic.
We eat in the pub onsite every day & the food was gorgeous! We also ate in the bistro one day which although there had been a problem with the delivery & they didnt have much that was on the menu left was still very nice.
All the staff we dealt with were really friendly & polite, including the cleaning ladies who helped us find our apartment when we first arrived & the bar staff who brought Harvey (our dog) a free bowl of water when he joined us in the pub!!
The real bonus of this site is that dogs are allowed pretty much everywhere which makes it feel like a proper holiday for them too.
Filey, Bridlington & Scarborough are all within easy driving distance & are very pleasant drives.
As other people have mentioned the site really does need a convenience store, although the pharmacy does stock a limited range of basic household items & there is a petrol station for newspapers about 15 minute walk away. The nearest supermarket is in Filey which about 10 minute drive.
We will definitely be going to The Bay!
