Legends Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Great location, it’s okay for its price. If you don’t have a beach side room crossing the busy road constantly Is a pain. There is a friendly guide that does assist with road crossing.The rooms are mediocre, the showers have very little pressure and hot water. The maids spray everything down with insect repellent without warning.The food is very underwhelming and overpriced, The alcohol is very dry and expensive. Walk down the beach for 2 minutes and get the same drinks for half the price. The hotel only provides beach chairs and spots for half the capacity of the hotel, unless you go early and claim a spot and leave your things like everyone else does, you won’t have a spot for the rest of the day. When we first arrived, we went to get food and the hotel staff said our food was free. We accepted it thinking it was a complementary free first meal or something. After the meal they said they messed up and labeled us as all inclusive and made us pay for the meal after we ate it and told it was free. It ended up being 38 dollars for a 2 mediocre plates of mash potatoes, veggies and stir fry. Last meal we had there and not a good first impression. This is the type of place you go for a place to sleep and explore everything around it as it’s a great location and close to the beach.
After a 9 and a half hour flight and hour ish taxi ride to Legends we had an easy smooth check with a cheerful and friendly receptionist. We were given a bottle of water but would have preferred a red stripe 😜. We were shown to our room - sea view , above the restaurant up three flights of stairs. The room was large clean and dated , just as expected. Good WiFi connection and lots of tv channels. It was Christmas Day so we quickly changed and headed straight to the beach , one minute walk and enjoyed our first sunset with a cold all inclusive beer! We have been to the Grand Pineapple before so my review is comparing to there . The sunset is equally as good! The drink quality is the same but lacks in choice. The rooms are of similar standard but the grounds are not as tidy. The all inclusive food is tasty and fresh but lacking in choice. Not self serve to avoid waste I expect but you can go back for more. Beach area cramped. Only missed out on beach chairs towards the end of our holiday as we were getting up later due to time difference to uk , so worked in our favour as the weather had also changed so we didn’t mind too much. I don’t like the idea of beach chairs being reserved for guests from samsara , the bus only arrives at 10.30 some days that was half way though our day and was quite annoying seeing empty beds in the sun whilst we patiently sat on our shady bed ! We spent a day at samsara that was enough , too quiet for us. The vibe of the beach , long walks , beers at interesting beach shacks is what it’s all about for us. We chose Legends as a cheaper all inclusive base so we had spare money to go out and mingle with the locals as and when we felt like it. The staff make this place a pleasant holiday place really , friendly and helpful and have time to chat and get to know you , not like in the big resorts which I hate , special mentions to Kendrick, Giovanni, Notoya, Shauney, Jennifer, Latoya, Kes , Jean, and Michael without you guys the place is nothing . ONE 💕 LOVE 💕 would we stay again , prob not as prefer GP more space ! But will deffo call by to say hi to my new friends.
Check in was a breeze. Very friendly & accommodating. This a small mom & pop type of resort which is why we picked it. What's really nice you have Legends which is on 7 mile beach & SamSara on the cliffs with a free shuttle back & forth daily. Beach at Legends really small no room to accommodate all the guests. If your not an early riser forget about getting a lounge/umbrella. Heard guests complain about that. Spent most of our days at SamSara lots of room there, could always get a lounge plus a nice breeze & views. The food was ok at both places. There are lots other restaurants close by to go off the resort for dinner. Any drinks like a Dirty Bananna, Margs, Hummingbird & other frozen cocktails are not part of the AI. Rooms are dated, beds a little hard, amenities are limited bars of soap only. Our room was very clean, coodos to the housekeepers they do a great job, air worked well. All the staff just wonderful, polite, courteous, smiling & very personable like family. A lot of repeat guests. Says a lot about all the people working their. I would recommend this resort. Just one more thing bring bug spray.
We just got home from Legends last night. This place rocks! The people are wonderful and real. Thank you to the staff - Kenrick for leading the way, Toya, Oudeth, Kesneil (sp), Giovanni, spunky Latoy, Shauna (sp), all of the waitstaff I am forgetting and the cooks. A big thank you to Michael for watching out for us and for all of his wisdom.The beach is absolutely amazing! It is very clean and you can swim out as far as your heart desires. Michael and his crew take care to see that you are happy with your location on the beach and that you have an umbrella if you so desire. They also tend the beach daily so sand fleas are kept at bay. Of course, where there is sand there are sand fleas so bring a little bug spray. Contrary to what we were told before we left, we didn’t see one mosquito.In our room we could hear the waves kissing the beach as well as the sweet sounds of tree frogs. The AC worked well. In fact, there were nights when we were too cold and had to shut if off. For $12. Extra per night they hooked us up with a mini fridge which served us well. We had a closet, and 5 dresser drawers in total. The water pressure at times was spotty; however, it reminded us that we were on an island in the West Indies and gave us a new perspective on our own lives as well as theirs. There are posts here that talk about the rooms being dated, the limited food choices, and spotty Wi-Fi. That’s all true; however, our room was clean, the food was fresh and the Wi-Fi in the lounge and dining room worked well. Legends is reasonably priced and one gets what they pay for. We saw how hard the staff works and they made our stay just perfect. If you would like to lay in the sun in pearls while a butler holds your martini -this is not the place for you. There is music in the air all day and the resort next door has a loud driving bass well into the night. Vendors do petition for your attention but we found that a friendly “no thank you, respect” would kindly send them on their way. If you want to do business with them (buy a bracelet, fruit, sugar cane, lobster, etc) it is best to get off of your lounge chair and walk to them. If you don’t and they come to you, Michael (the security guard) will think they are bothering you and take action to get them away from you. Save him the trouble and do your business beachside and not at the resort.We made many new friends this past week at Legends, both staff and guests and we will return next year.
We stayed here from Oct. 22 through Nov. 04, 2017and were very pleased with overall stay. The hotel itself was nice. The rooms were comfortable. The staff was friendly. The beach has beautiful white sand and the water is clear, clean and warm. If you just want a beautiful place to relax, this is the place.
