“Perfect for family break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

If you going on a short break with kids - on their terms, Lalandia is a good choice. Lalandia is a bit tacky, but a lot of fun if you like waterslides. You rent a house for accommodation. Legoland is next door. Do not stay more than 2-3 days.

We stayed at Lalandia as part of a Legoland Holiday and were really pleased with our stay. The whole place is a bit like a Centre parcs in the UK but smaller in size. Firstly, it is so easy to get to from Billund airport by taxi and you can go and use the facilities even if you arrive before the 3pm check-in time. Legoland is a 5 minute walk from the Lalandia centre.

Once you check in (you go directly to your cabin and use the code given to you via email before you arrive), you get a wristband each which gives you access to the Aquadome and the play area bit called Monky Tonky. Basically there is the main centre which has the service centre, shops, restaurants, Aquadome, play area, bowling, etc etc and then lots of cabins in quite a large area. The whole place is spotlessly clean. There is even a field of very cute goats that you can go in and pet. The staff in the service centre are really nice and all speak excellent English. The staff in the restaurants are a little hands off - customer service isn't exceptional but perfectly good.

There is a little train which runs every 30 mins (but oddly only Thurs - Sunday) and takes you to near your cabin (there are no cars allowed on this central road), or if you have a car, there is another entrance you can use depending on where your cabin is.

TIP - As we didn't have a car, we asked to have a cabin as near to the centre as possible and they kindly did put us in the Birkestein area. It was 5-10 mins walk to the centre which was absolutely fine.

We booked a Classic 4 cabin (as there are only 3 of us) and it was absolutely super. Spotlessly clean, very nicely designed and fully kitted out with lots of kitchen equipment, oven, fridge, freezer, microwave etc. We didn't have a double bed in our bedroom as advertised but 2 singles pushed together so no big problem. The cabins are really well insulated so retain the heat very well. There is plenty of green space between you and the next cabin and there are lots of mini play parks dotted about for the kids. Very family orientated. As it is near to the airport there is plane noise but just take ear plugs.

TIP - The blinds are quite thin so take a black-out blind for little kids.

You will need to take bed linen and towels with you or you can hire them there. Also you get one toilet roll and a few dishwasher tablets. Everything else you can get from their supermarket (or another in the area). I was surprised with how well their supermarket was stocked - very good variety but as expected quite pricey (Denmark is more expensive than the UK in terms of food and drink but being in a resort increased this too).

Aquadome
This was great fun! It was pretty busy on all the days we were there (Sunday pm was a lot quieter though). There are several kids pools, wave machines, rapids (lovely gentle flowing 'river' where you can sit back and relax on a ring) and lots of flumes. There are 4 flumes you go down on a sleeping bag type thing which are good fun with a blinking steep drop at the end! Then there are 1 person and 2 person rides which are good fun and exciting. Then there is the ride I will never do again!!!! The 4 person ride has a MASSIVE steep drop where you think you are going to crash head first to earth. We did it once but never again - there were plenty of thrill seekers going again and again on it - very brave.

TIP: The queuing system is basically you wait at the end of the ride and when someone comes down the flume, they should hand the ring to the person waiting. Queues moved pretty quickly.

There is also a kids water area which has loads of water guns, spraying machines, mini flumes etc and was loved by our 6 year old. An outdoor Jacuzzi is also really nice. I found the temperature in the Aquadome fine - we got chilly at one point but if you can just warm up in the Jacuzzi and do a few flumes to get the blood pumping!

Monky Tonky
As with all soft play places the world over, they are hell on earth for adults but the kids love them. Our 6 year old wasn't too impressed with it as I think it is geared to slightly younger kids. I am sure if she had a little pal with her she would have been fine.

Eating Out
There are 4 restaurants in the main centre and it seemed as though a lot of them were only open at the weekend so do check. I couldn't be bothered to cook in the cabin so off we went! We ate at il Bambino which is an all you can eat buffet. The price is about £25 per adult and £10 per child for all you can eat. You pay in advance when you arrive. I was dreading it slightly wondering what sort of choice there would be but it was pretty good! There is a range of cheeses, meats, pate, breads, salads for starters and then for mains there was lots of very nicely cooked roast meats, veg, lasagne, pasta, pizza, roast salmon etc. Not fine dining but decent tasty food and you could go back up as often as you liked. For kids there is a salad bar with raw veg, pizza, sausages, spaghetti but they can have anything from the grown ups food too - not limited to the children's food.
Pudding is great for those with a sweet tooth - 8 flavours of ice cream, lots of fresh fruit, a chocolate fountain, tiramisu, toppings, sprinkles etc!!! Worth reminding kids to only take what they can manage to avoid wastage as to a 6 year old it is all rather tempting! We didn't eat at the other restaurants so can't comment on them.

The Centre is a little odd with its false starry sky ceiling but it is pretty calm and relaxing. They also do singing and live music shows for children and families in the central area. We didn't venture in to Billund itself at all as we were all pretty exhausted after Legoladn and Aquadome all day long so eating at the Centre was convenient.

In summary, we really enjoyed our time here and would certainly return - probably with friends next time.

Room Tip: If travelling without a car ask for a cabin as near to the centre as possible.

We went to Lalandia as a trip with the whole family to celebrate the grandparents' wedding anniversary.The houses are renovated and look fresh and clean but for that price is the least i expect (more than 700e for 3 nights per house).On top of that you have to pay extra for linnen etc and at the end of your stay your energy bill.There's was a wifi code written in the house that should be for out house's wifi but that didnt exist.There is further no soap anywhere in the house-everything you got to bring yourself (smarter than buying it at the store there).The food at the Plaza (we had dinner at picolino or something like that) was buffet and not great at all plus there are no signs explaining what food on the trays in front of you.the service is also slow and they are great at bringing you other stuff than the ones you ask which happens to be more expensive.(asked for glass of wine and a whole bottle came that was in our bill).Nothing is open until late so if you arriving a bit late better be prepared.The houses are close to Legoland and to the plaza and there is also a train to bring you up and down that goes every half hour(not that punctual) To park your car in front of the plaza is free for one hour otherwise the next better option is to buy a parking card for a year (which is cheaper than paying day by day but still a waste of money).you basically have to arrange everything yourself because it s not easy to find a reception and no actual check out.Also the door of our house wasnt closing properly unless you slammed it,which was not handy at all late at night or early in the morning.Overall a disappointing experience

I think at least one other person described Lalandia this way and it's a fairly accurate description. It has a range of activities and Legoland is a short walk away. Many of the properties are detached and whilst they're close together we never felt too overlooked. Many of the cottages are very new so it will probably improve as the trees and bushes grow up a bit. Inside they are well decorated with tiled floors in the bathroom and communal areas and carpets in the bedroom. The blinds could be a bit darker but they weren't too bad in the bright mornings. The beds were reasonably comfortable and the kitchen had a decent range of equipment for self catering. As a Brit in Sweden I've got used to some places expecting you to bring your own sheets and towels or pay extra so this wasn't a shock - it can be a pain if you're trying to pack light. Paying for electricity and water was a new one on me but it seems to be standard for Danish holiday homes.

The water park was good for people with young kids with plenty of slides and features aimed at under 8s. The bigger slides tended to require the use of various rings and mats so I don't know if that would be exciting enough for older teenagers. Families using the four way inflatable slides seemed to be enjoying themselves but there was a minimum height of 120cm so we missed out on this one. The other big slides were 110cm and 100cm. There was also a large indoor play area with ball pens, ropes and slides. This and the waterpark were both included in the cost of the accommodation but there were a range of indoor activities that you could pay extra for including minigolf, ice skating, climbing and rather bizarrely skiing. The slope looked so short it was hard to see how well it would work.

There were several onsite restaurants but some of these only open in the evening and there seemed to be an emphasis on buffet menus. The Cafe Plaza had a menu with more choices but I'm still unsure whether I got food poisoning from here or from food that I bought from the onsite supermarket. The supermarket wasn't cheap but then nowhere in Denmark is. Several hotels in the area have nicer a la carte options and we had two good meals at the Hotel Propellen.

Overall I think that about 4 nights would be about right if you wanted to use it as a base for Legoland as well. Pool admission is included for the duration of your stay including arrival and departure days.

Room Tip: There is a train to get you from the furthest properties to the water park but it seemed to be irreg...

We are a family of 6 with 2 teenagers and 2 smaller children. The cabin was wonderful. The little kids really enjoyed their fantasy room. The kitchen is well equiped and everything worked really well. The cabin was spotless clean.
Bringing your own bed linen and towels is quite anoying (you can rent some but it´s quite expensive.
No point in dining out, just buy your groceries from the local market (Lalandia shop prices are quite reasonable) but you can find less expensive stores in Billund center (2 km away) with a very nice selection of groceries.

Room Tip: Ask for a cabin near the train. Actually, we asked for one near Aquadome/Lalandia resort but they ga...

We stayed in the Billund campsite to visit Legoland, and came here to use the facilities on our second day. The children enjoyed it but for a few waterslides and a short pool and wave machine it was very over-priced. Big softplay area, few overpriced restaurants, reasonable supermarket, minigolf, bowling, etc. Perhaps it is better value if you are staying in their chalets?

We stayed only over the weekend but enjoyed the change to get some quieter time between spending days in Legoland.
Holiday home was comfortable, roomy and had fully equipped kitchen and washing rooms. Area was close enough to Legoland to walk or you could always take the free “train” that goes every half hour.
You have to rent bed linens and towels separately if you don’t bring your own (which was a bit of a problem since we arrived so late in the evening that service center was no longer open). You also need to bring or buy pretty much everything else with you as well (kitchen paper etc.).
