Massapequa Park, New York
May 15, 2002
There is not enough parking at the resort so most of the time we were forced to park at their auxilary parking garage across the street. There is valet parking but they seemed awfully overworked and slow so we didn't partake.
There is a fairly small indoor/outdoor pool (I guess we're spoiled by the giant sized pool at the Embassy Resort in Maui) and it was COLD! Nevertheless, our 11-year-old son enjoyed it and there were always kids to play with.
Lots of other activities are available such as a pool table, bicycles, barbeques, ping-pong tables, games, and organized kids programs. Our son went to movie and game night with some of his new friends and had a great time. They will also arrange side trips and tickets to various attractions usually at a discount.
Two other highlights: There was absolutely no attempt to pull us into a timeshare presentation and the ones we saw people attending seemed very lowkey. But our very favorite feature of the resort was the bathroom toilets equipped with the Sloan Flushmate system! These babies will flush anything! And if you've ever traveled with kids and worried that they'll plug the toilets with huge wads of TP or worse, you can rest easy here!
