The curtain has closed on the 2017 summer season and it has been our pleasure to have spent it with all of you at Pirates Village. Every year we thoroughly enjoy seeing familiar faces and new arrivals arrive at our door and cannot thank you enough for the memories we have shared with you and the good times you have given us.
We know how much you enjoy getting to know our pirates and vice versa, so, with that being said, would you like to know what our pirates’ highlights of this season are?
Read below for our exclusive interview with no other than our favourite entertainment manager herself, Marta, otherwise known as Pirate Princess Charlotte.
Hi Marta! Can you tell us a bit about your experience at Pirates Village and your role?
Hi! So this is my fourth season at Pirates Village. By day I am Marta, the hotel’s entertainment manager, and by night I am Charlotte, the Pirate Princess in love with Captain Legend. Charlotte’s a brave heroine although a bit crazy at times!
What would you say is your favourite activity or show?
I would say my favourite shows are the ones we write ourselves. They are written and edited entirely by us which gives us a sense of pride when we see both adults and the little ones enjoying them so much. These shows are Looking for legend, There’s something about Charlotte and Pirate’s Attack.
In your opinion, what would you say the guests’ favourite part of Pirates Village is?
I think that parents enjoy the fact that their children have a lot of contact with us all day and evening long. We are with them during the day, playing games and taking part in activities with them and then we are with them at night, taking on the roles of our characters. In fact, we used to have separate actors performing in the shows but then we decided it would be better for us to take over the roles in order to develop closer contact with our guests. I think that our guests appreciate the fact that their children don’t just see all the entertainment then we just leave, we are there throughout their entire stay. In terms of a particularly favourite show, I would definitely say it’s the Pirates Attack.
Does this mean you see a lot of families coming back?
Yes, a lot. We know many families who come back year after year and even those who come back several times in one season. This is especially relevant at this time of year (end of October) as we create a special show at this time…
I think they enjoy coming back, not for the pool or the hotel’s ratings, but for the fact that, due to the amount of activities and entertainment we provide and the close contact we have with them, they enjoy a personalised stay where they truly feel special.
What was your favourite moment of this summer season?
I can’t think of one in particular but, considering the whole Pirates Village experience in general I would say my favourite moment is when the children are leaving and start crying because they are sad about going. Of course, I don’t mean it in a bad way but I think it just proves how well we have done our jobs in that the children have enjoyed themselves so much that they’re devastated to leave. It also shows that our close contact with the children and their families really makes a difference.
And finally… Can you describe the Pirates Village Apartments experience in 3 words?
Yes: Excitement, fun and happiness!
