Great Get Away

I had a blast and will come back as soon as possible. When we arrived we had to go to their sister hotel (SamSarah) which was unexpected due to over crowding, however after the adjustment was made we really made the best of it and had a memorable experience. We were then able to stay at Legends for our last night there which was really great (given that that's what I originally booked). Either way, Id go back because the staff was awesome, the hotel(s) were clean and accommodating, and we had so much fun!

Girls Trip

1st time staying at Legends. We found the resort wonderful. stayed on Garden Side which was nice. Rooms clean, service nice. Only thing we wished is that we could have parked our car on the Garden Side rather than beach side,

Great bargain

This is not a five star all-inclusive, so if that is what you are after then do not come here. It is however a nice, clean, comfortable budget hotel at a great location on the beach. Staff was super friendly and eager to make us happy. Food was good but not great, bar service awesome, rooms were comfy with daily maid service. Free shuttle to their sister property Samsara on the cliffs. You don't get huge buffets or free sail boards, but you do get a no hassles, worry free vacation at the best stretch of white sand beach in the world.

Good beach, decent accommodations, not family friendly

We enjoyed our stay, but the hotel was very simple and this place was not family friendly. The hotel also did not offer any sort of considerations or refund when we checked out 4 days early due to food poisoning.

Great place for the price

Excellent location on the beach. The staff was friendly and always up-beat. Rooms were basic but clean. You also have access to their sister resort Samsara on the cliffs. I believe the shuttle runs twice a day. Over all a very good value, I would stay here again, and most likely will.

Perfect!

I found an awesome deal for Legends. I arrived early, room wasn't ready, but a few minutes later it was and I was upgraded! The room was clean, ac and tv on. The views from the balcony were beautiful. The bed was clean and comfy as well. A maid cleaned daily, left fresh towels and soap. The pool was clean and warmed by the sun. Restaurant was big, drinks at the bar pricey but good. Try a hummingbird! Beach chairs are close together but you won't feel crowded. I enjoyed it at Legends and would stay again.

So so

The hotel was quite cheap and that is the main reason we I think I would still recommend it to a friend, however it could do so much better. We bought the all-inclusive option for 1 week but the food was actually every 2 days exactly the same. On the one hand we are happy we took it because they offered some traditional jamaican food, on the other hand it could be way more diversified. We were expecting more fruits to be available for guests all day long but that was not the case. As far as the standard is concerned, it was not so bad, and our room looked pretty much as on the pictures. Because the place is cheap, there are quite a lot of hustlers standing on the beach every single day. And here, big plus for the security guy who was much like a teksas ranger. Cool, there was an option of free rides to another hotel located on the cliffs - we could take a breath from annoying ppl on the beach.

not even close to a 3 star by american standards, overpriced

the room was depressing (decore, furniture, paint, etc.), they did not provide shampoo, no safe in the room, impossible to get clean towells, no hair dryer available, and the list goes on. Way overprices (was ~$200/night), and far worse than you would get for a descent 3 * hotel in the us. They lock the beach entrance at around 10pm and don't have a security guard there to let people in, making it a real pain to get in to the hotel from the beach after that (I had to convince the security guard at the hotel next door to let me walk through to get to the street entrance for this hotel. On the upside, the location was great, and raft red strip at the bar was $1.50. Staff was nice, but did not seem empowered to solve any problems. Would definitely not stay again. Would be reasonable for $80-$100 a night.
