A pirate-themed hotel is set to open in Orlando's Legoland in Florida. 

The theme park's third on-site hotel property, Pirate Island Hotel will feature 150 rooms including four suites, a heated pool and in-room Lego treasure hunts. Every room includes two separate spaces for kids and adults: bunk beds and Lego play areas for kids, king size bed and TV for the adults. 

Rooms sleep five people. 

The property spans five storeys and also features an entertainment area with kid-friendly programs, Lego play areas for mini buccaneers, and a bar for parents. 

The hotel is slated to open April 17, 2020. It's the latest expansion to the resort, following the opening of The Lego Movie World with new rides and attractions inspired by the "The Lego Movie."
