We celebrated my daughter's birthday this month in this hotel and purchased the "birthday package". In the package includes a special birthday gift for the celebrant ( be sure to remind the staff during the check in, 'coz they forgot to give it to my daughter only after i asked and reminded them), a "huge cake" given during dinner in the restaurant of your choice at legoland ( we choice bricks since its more family friendly and buffets include an array of foods that kids can get it by themselves since the food stands are of their level) and a short but sweet singing of happy birthday to my daughter by a group of "fun-costumed" staff in the restaurant. We stayed in a "pirates junior suite room". The room is HUGE and a lot of space that can fit 7-8 people. Although you are only allowed to have 5 people in the room, the hotel is not that strict about counting people who stays in the rooms. But they do count the number of persons entering the restaurants during the buffet. Our room has one king (that is so spacious for me, my hubby and 4 yr old son) and the bunk beds in the other side that comfortable accommodated my 15, 12, and 8 year old kids. But realistically, there is just more, enough space to put an air bed in the floor that can accommodate 2-4 more persons in your party ( i should say 2 more adults and 2 more kids). Again, just saying that only 5 is allowed but "you dont have to declare" that you have more in your party. And to add up to this very spacious Pirate Junior Suite room is "2" (yes, not 1) balconies overlooking the pool wherein you can watch people enjoying the pool and even watch the nightly movies being shown in a big projector by the pool. All of these you can watch in your own pleasure and convenience of your 2 connecting, spacious balconies. Bathroom is huge. Pirate decors and colors are awesome for the kids! Legos in the room to play (but not to bring home). Be sure to ask for a microwave (free). There is a mini fridge.
The elevators are super fun with the strobe lights and music enjoyed by both adults and kids. Dining Staffs at Bricks Restaurant are soooooo nice and went far and beyond their service by even putting our left-over "huge" birthday cake in their fridge during our entire 3days/2nights stay. We can call in anytime to bring the cake in our room and if we dont finish the whole thing, we can always request it to be placed back to their ref.
Everything is "almost" Awesome in legoland but not quite due to few flaws. Food is "expensive" in Bricks. Even if we paid $50/dinner package for 4 people. The quality and variety of foods presented are poor. Breakfast is free. Breakfast is "just average" but better than the dinner.
Front desk staff are "terrible" most of them does not smile(considering the is hotel is for kids) Only about 2 staffs from the front desk whom i saw played and smiled with the kids but the rest just seem to be just their "to work" not " to work and have fun with kids and guests".
Legoland Hotel is expensive. But overall, you get the prize of what you paid seeing your kids mesmerized by the decors, legos, colors, music and fun things everywhere... If i am going to choose to stay there again...even if its super, duper expensive...for the love of my kids... I WILL... :)
P.S: Book early in advance, pirates room are the first to fill up.
