The Legend Resort Cherating

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Big hotel with fantastic location. Beautiful beach and wonderful big swimming pools. Just love to do my lapps in the deepest pool. Our room is big & clean. Dated but well maintained. The restaurant serves good food and the breakfast buffet was very impressive with great choices. This is really a good place for relaxation.

Whenever I visit Cherating, the Legend Resort has always been my first choice due to the beautiful beach views and large swimming pools..but my recent trip has changed the perception somewhat. The hotel as whole needs a thorough rejuvenation, what with better choices available in the area now e.g. Royale Chulan. So much potential but so much more needs to be done to ensure the crowds don’t shift their loyalties elsewhere.

On a 1st year im staying at 1st floor deluxe room.2nd year at 2nd floor with bathub.if u like to have a bathub choose upper floor.the room was spacious & well maintain. We had an oceans view from our room.just a breathaking moment 💓 plus we had a evening tea with teh tarik & keropok lekor at the beach.very nice moment with my family.this year we will be there on this coming school holiday

Stay 3D2N in Villa B, view from room is very nice, the highlight is the beach. Private beach, clean, good scenery & unforgettable. Parking is far from the villa, need to walk about 5 min from entrance. Many restaurants around the beach, & remember to have cash because the nearest atm is about 10-15 min from the resort. We end up go to Kemaman as we running out of cash. Btw, Good memory with family.

I can’t say enough good things about this hotel. Starting from seamless booking with Ms Kavita to the front office team and not to forget the housekeeping team, they kept the room and surrounding to a very high level of cleanliness. People are so friendly and helpful. With an amazing view of cherating beach and spectacular swimming pool, it’s just another great holiday made possible by Ms Kavita. Legend Resort is a must stay resort if you’re visiting Cherating.

we wanted a quick getaway to the beach and chose Cherating as its just 45 minutes drive away. we were recommended this hotel by a friend as she said that this is one of the better ones along the coast [bar the newly opened Royal Chulan] upon arrival we were surprised to see the vast pool area, the grounds were immaculate and quite a few workers tending the gardens / surrounding. there were not many people around as it was mid week and literally the pool and beach were ours. we had lunch at the onsite restaurant; the food was really good. we in fact had lunch again the next day before checking out. however the rooms were such a letdown. as everyone mentioned it does need an upgrade. total re-do of the rooms. the whole room looks very old, the bathroom wasn't that clean and it was dusty. it is such a shame as the area is beautiful, the grounds are really taken care of and the services from the staff were great. upon checking out the lady at the reception asked me whether we would return next year; my answer was honest. I said - everything else is satisfactory except for the room conditions. If you get that sorted more people will come back.

Booked a stay for 2 nights in the superior deluxe room facing the swimming pool/sea. Room is okay but need to be refurbished. They were ample parking outside the hotel. Hotel have a big and nice swimming pool. New year’s eve buffet dinner was good. The staff was very helpful. It was raining when we were there, the wave is quite strong. There were also restaurants and stalls nearby located opposite the hotel.

When our taxi driver drove us up to the front, we were unimpressed wiih the look of the hotel, It looked very run down. As we walked into the lobby, everything looked old. However, the reception staff was very friendly and checked us in very quickly, Our room was amazing, Very clean and well presented overlooking the ocean. The pool was very nice and clean too.The food at the restaurant however was unimpressive. The staff did not look like they wanted to be there, Unfriendly and unattentive. They got our orders wrong a few times. More training should be given to them. We ended up going out to town to eat most nights. This hotel could do with a makeover.

Looks really nice at first sigth, the manegers are really good and some staff to, but the evening/night staff speak so bad english that we dont even get the right food and drinks. Acctully my husband get his food (wrong food) way earlyer then me, he send it back, we ask for cocktails before the food and waited long time. And the waiter dont understand a word we tell him. The resturant was open untill 01.00 nighttime but every lights was of already turned of, we started up them by our self 23.00. They lie about what they have on the 24 open roomservice aswell when we called, I told him, yes you have this and get it at last, lazy?! The hotwater did not work, a staff came and "fix it" but it was not fixed. The massage girl and her son was awesome, if you go, try them! The also lie about the safetybox, when we asked the all was on repairing, then we trethed to call and then boom, we have one. Wierd.

Booked and stayed from January 4-6, 2018. The 4-star rating should be downgraded to a 2 star. The hotel is rundown and outdated. Initially I was given a room that has not been renovated, and it was filthy. The bathroom walls and bath tub were yellow and cracked. The room had an awful smell with dirty and washed out walls. The balcony was dirty without patio furnishing. The staff was helpful though and after I complained, they switched me to a renovated room with better furnishings and somewhat cleaner bathroom, but it did not come with extra toilet rolls. The bed linens were also damp, and my body was covered with insect bugs at the end of my stay! I am still healing from it till today.
