He has been a fundamental part of your Pirates Village experience since we unveiled our pirate-themed hotel in 2013. He has been there to share memories with all your family, entertaining the kids whilst, at the same time, making you, as parents, feel like big kids again. He’s written and acted in the shows, whilst giving you recommendations on things to do around the island and provided bundles of laughs with his mischievous pirate ways at the same time.
So, without a moment’s hesitation, let’s get some insight on Robbie’s, AKA Captain Legend’s, time at Pirates Village…
Hi Robbie! Can you give us some insight on what Captain Legend is like?
Hey! So Captain Legend is a guy who doesn’t really know which way to go in his life. He’s a very rich guy who is desperately seeking love but his love interest isn’t good for him due to the fact she’s crazy! He always makes out he’s brave but when action comes a-knocking, he cowardly runs away from the fight. He’s one of the kids’ favourites because he’s a superhero who has never actually done anything in his life!
Which would you say is your favourite show?
My favourite show has definitely got to be Sunday’s Pirates Attack. This is because everyone takes part- adults as well as children- and so we get a boost from this, from their energy. I think that having our guests participate is the thing that has made the show the success that it is.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
What I enjoy most is the close contact we have with our guests as we get constant feedback from them, hourly as well as daily. Some guests have even become our friends, actually I would say more like family. For example, we know about 6 or 7 families who, after having met each other here in 2013 at the very beginning, now come at the same time as each other every single year!
What do you think guests enjoy most about the Pirates Village experience?
I think that Pirates Village has touched on something that other hotels haven’t be able to yet. We don’t just focus on the kids but on trying to make adults feel like big kids again, which makes them enjoy their holiday a lot more. We are able to make parents see the hotel through their kids’ eyes and so I think this is the thing they enjoy most. When it comes to a show or activity in particular, I would say our guests’ favourite is also mine: Pirates Attack.
What makes Pirates Village unique to you?
It’s unique because of the staff’s mindset. Every single member of staff who works here believes that they are part of this hotel, of its concept and of what we create. This mindset, the teamwork of every single department of this hotel, is what makes Pirates so unique.
What was your favourite moment of the 2017 season?
I don’t have one in particular but something that really stands out for me is when returnee customers arrive at the hotel and they’re so overjoyed to see us!
Who would you say customers’ favourite character is?
I think we are all their favourites! There are some ‘villains’ they like to boo but they still love them all the same. It’s all fun and games at the end of the day.
