The all inclusive doesn't meet standards
GEORGE N.

The room and hotel itself was pretty much what we expected, however the food was not good at all. There were very few choices for meals. Breakfast didn't include any breakfast meats at all. No bacon, sausage or anything like that. Not even any chopped ham for omelets. No scrambled eggs, no yogurt, no bagels or English muffins, fruit that was served for breakfast was very limited (3 kinds). This could easily be fixed. Lunch was OK, but the evening meal was very poor. All inclusive at the bar didn't even include most of the kinds of drinks that they actually poor. No rum cream, no Hummingbirds or Tequila sunrise etc. They made them, but if you wanted them you had to pay. The beach area was small, but live able. The security on the beach was Excellent, thanks to Micheal the security guard. Beach chair cushions could be upgraded. There was no entertainment except for the bartenders dancing at times. The wait staff was very good as were the bartenders with the exception of a couple of them that wouldn't even look at you, never said thank-you when you tipped or anything. They could update their lock box system and replace with in room safes. The lock box does work, but just not as convenient. Not sure if it the hotel ownership or the way the hotel is managed, but most of it's problems could be fixed! The breakfast cook at the egg station was friendly and nice for 6 out of the 7 days. But the back up person on Wednesday couldn't even make two eggs at the same time causing huge back ups in the breakfast line. With such limited choices for breakfast most people opted for eggs. The water for tea wasn't even hot enough to steep tea. Had hotter water in the bathroom in our room that what you got for tea, and only 1 kind of tea available unless you brought your own.

The pictures for this hotel are old. My first overall impression was dissappointment. We paid extra for superior beachside. DO NOT do this. The view is over a dirty roof, from a balcony in bad need of repair. Garden side will be just fine. Also what you do not know is that Superioe beachside is up 2 flights of concrete stairs. You will wait at least 5 to 8 minutes for a shower. Then it will be freezing cold, then scalding hot again. The beach is TINY. There are never enough chairs, and very few umbrellas. But who wants to lay in a row and back to back with all the other guests? There are several hotels close by - where the beach is much more accomodating and spacious. The food was just ok. The bar tenders lack any personality for the most part. You will get served - but I often felt like I was bothering them. This is not a place that you will need to bring any dressy clothes. The restuarant next door is good - but very overpriced, with small portions. There is a good place to shop across the street - buy your stuff there...not along the beach! I would not go back to the Legends. Jamaica has a beautiful beach - but enjoy from some other place.

Not at all what we expected from the write-ups and descriptions.

We were very disappointed that the room had not refrigerators in them. Prices at the restaurant were relatively high although that was typical of all the restaurants on the beach. We paid extra for the superior beachside room and the only thing that was beachside about it was that it was on the beachside of the road. The hotel could have offered more amenities with regards to activities and helping with excursions. The staff was friendly and courteous and the rooms were adequate, bathrooms need some work. I doubt that I would visit Negril again, you could not walk on the beach without being approached by the native Jamaicans asking you to buy this and that or to get you to come into their establishment.

The staff was very friendly, they took care of any problems we may have come across. Michael the gaurd does an mazing job at keeping rif raf out of your hair as well. As for apple vacation it's self. I will never book a trip through you ever again, nor will I recommend your travel agency either. After numerous times of asking for beachside room we didn't receive one. Among other problems I had while booking.

Over all the trip was ok. We spent alot of time off site as the staff was not very friendly and there was no entertainment or activities offered. The biggest disappointment was upon our arival to the airport in Montego Bay. Our trip included tranport to and from our resort. We could not find anyone from Apple to take us to the resort. It cost us a $100 cab ride to get from the airport to Legends! Two day before our departre, we were checking with the front desk to make sure we were not going to have to also pay to get back to the airport. An Apple rep happened to be there. When we told him about having to pay $100 for a cab instead of the transport we were supposed to have received, his only response was "Are you serious?" I was very dissapointed. I feel we should be reimbursed for our added expense.

Legends Resort - Negril, Jamaica
MARC L.
Mar 08 2013
Legends Resort was a rated 2-star. This is accurate. The hotel room was clean, but bare-bones. There were few amenties. The lighting in the room and the bathroom was very dark, so these could have been improved. The bed was very comfortable. The beach at the hotel was very small, but Michael (security guard) was very tenacious about keeping the riff-raff out of the area. It was nice that we could go to Samsara (sister hotel) and use their facilities. It took out out of the fray for a day or two. The cook (Mama) prepared basic, but good meals. We knew this would not be a 5-star resort when we booked it. We checked out the reviews on Trip Advisor, and many of them were negative. We had an excellent time, but we are very adaptable people. All we wanted was a clean room. Although the room was a little shabby, it was clean, so this satisfied our needs. As far as recommending this resort to friend/family, we could recomment it to some. Others would not find it up to their standards. We wanted more of a local experience, and we got it at Legends.

I also asked for extra towels, which the office said there's a procedure and the maid would take the 1 towel in am noit return till almost dinner time, no hand towels or wash rags were given. The toilet broke, I had to reming them several times, the AC leaked water all over my clothed, hotel never offered to clean them or never fixed it, they gave me after a few days and I slipped many times, large beacj towels to soak up water, I will certainly make sure next vacation hotel supplies things that I tought were standard.

Staff/facility

The Legends Resort hotel dining/bar/beach area is staffed by the most caring and friendly people I have ever come across. Within 24 hours of our arrival the staff made it clear by their actions that taking care of the guest was very importtant to them. The facility was very child/family friendly, and the service staff in the dining/bar beach area made it more so by learning quickly what tha childrens names were, and who they belonged to. We felt as if we had half dozen helpers looking after the kids, that makes life much more relaxing for mom and dad. The hotel rooms,food etc. is not five star, but everything is clean,very good value for the money paid. Everything regarding connections went as smooth as silk, but the bus ride to and from the airport is a little longer than I liked.

Another relaxing vacay at our home away from home =)

This is our 4th time at Legends and love it here. We like to stay on the garden side in the room right next to the pool. We spend half our time between the pool and beach and love the quiet of the garden side. The staff are great, always greet you with a smile and are attentive to your every needs. The food is good, you will not go hungry. It is such a great location and within walking distance from restaurants, bars, etc...It is a home away from home for us, no worries, surrounded by great people and relaxing atmosphere. I highly recommend Legends if you want that "mom n pop/family" feeling on your vacay, as opposed to those big resorts that you need a golf cart to get around anywhere. If you look at most of the reviews, a lot of us come back year after year, so they are doing something right! Shout out to MIKEY and MISTA WALKA (thanks for walking us across that road 10 zillion times a day!) Nestor keep up the good efficient work boss, you're on top of things as soon as they happen and knowing we can come to you for anything is always a plus. You guys are great and we will see you again next year!! Miranda and Lee

Still my favorite place in Negril

Just returned from another enjoyable and relaxing visit @ Legends. Been coming here for about 20 years now and this is still the only place I want to stay. Legends is right on the beach. About 1 Km south of downtown Negril and the end of 7 mile beach. I felt my stress level disappear as soon as I came thru the front gate to check-in. A big smile and a "Welcome Back" from Jennifer @ the front desk warmly greeted me. I always stay beach-side @ Legends. It makes for a short walk to the restaurant / bar as well as the beach. I was fortunate enough to stay in one of the 2nd floor rooms ( #504 ) overlooking the Caribbean Sea. It was very nice to have the balcony doors open with a nice ocean breeze coming thru the room. Blue Mountain coffee and a swim in the sea before breakfast made for a great way to start each morning. Meals were tasty and I never walked away hungry. Adult beverages were cold, strong and refreshing. Special thanks to my friends Michael and Donovan working security at the front gate and the beach. Keeping everyone safe and comfortable. Thanks to all of the kitchen, wait and bar staff, Jennifer, Kiss, Latoy and many others for keeping me fat and happy ! Special Thanks also to my host Mr. Kendrick for hooking me up with that Great Room and helping to make this another terrific vacation. My sister and brother in-law were staying up the beach @ one of those fancy resorts and they came down to visit me one day. They were quite jealous after seeing my ocean-front room and Legends in general. Don't ever change this place ! You have a Great hotel and Crew here. Looking forward to visiting again as soon as I can. Much Love ! John

Great to see old friends!!

Just home from another great stay at Legends Beach resort. It was great to return to see many old friends, and make some new ones. From the gates at the road to the beach, you will find SO many happy, smiling faces you will never want to leave. We were greeted with a big "Welcome Home" from Jennifer at the front desk, along with many others who did the same as we settled in. This is a place you will make "friends" not just acquaintances like many larger resorts. Heartfelt welcomes and hugs is what you can expect if you find and return to this little slice of Paradise. Thanks SO Much to our friends in the kitchen, Elorine and Victoria. Kendrick your gracious host, Casteel ( who always had our table set with coffee,water and O.J.at breakfast the moment he saw us enter), Melissa, Carin and Lemar all worked hard to make sure everyone enjoyed their meals. Big shout outs to Jennifer,Shaney and Georgiana at the beach bar! Security second to None, courtesy of Donovan(Powder) and the King(LOL) Michael . They will make sure all is good during your stay. For those we may have forgotten, our apologies, and we will make it up on our next trip"Home". Legends location allows you to explore, as it is perfectly located to So many shops,markets and restaurants. Respect to All,One Love. See you again Friends! Carrie & Steve

Stayed at this hotel for 5 days. Originally was booked to stay on the 'garden side' but then paid extra to be on the beach side. Managed to leave my jacket in my room on the garden side, but failed to remember until I went to leave. No sign of my jacket, only to be told by the manager - maybe I did not pack a jacket?? Kind of find that hard to believe as I travelled from London to Montego Bay? Manager dealt with this situation extremely poorly. Some training may be required - #justsaying. My room was fine. Nice size bed. No fridge. Rooms are quite dark - even on sunny days. Room was cleaned every other day. Only bath towels are provided - no hand towels or wash cloths provided? No beach towels provided? No iron in the room, no ironing board in the room, no safe. I didn't eat at the hotel. Drinks were quite expensive at the bar - felt a simple glass of orange juice was the same price as a meal down the road. Struggled to get onto the beach for a sunrise walk/swim - gates are locked from 10 pm - 7 am - sun rises at 6 am?? Had to speak with the hotel next door to see if they would allow me to go through on their side. Staff were OK, but could do with some cheering up. The beach is wonderful - it is Negril! Sun loungers are available as are parasols. If you just need a place to stay - this does that.

Very unfriendly stuff

The hotel is kind of old, basic rooms but very clean! The pool areas are not really nice and clean! The beach is amazing but this is the 7 miles beach. When you need a fridge you have to pay 12$ per day. The lady in the shop is lovley!! The stuff in the restaurant is kind of lazy and not really friendly but not all of them. I asked the waiters for a bottle of water and told i will pay in 10 min when my friend is coming back with the money - it wasn’t possible he acted unfriendly and complicated, he talked with me like iam a child and at the end he told (shouting)me iam rude! The security guy at the beach is horrible we asked him if he can help us to move a sun umbrella, his answer was why you wanna stay there, stay there were umbrellas are - after a discussion he helpt. A few hours later he was shouting at me i should stop talking with the sellers on the beach - the funny thing is i was talking with 2 other guest. The next day he acted exactly in the same way. A person told me the rude security is working there over 10 years and the unfriendly behaviour is normal. I really could feel some of the stuff are hating their job!! They aren’t interested or not use to do a good service, it’s sad. The service of the stuff is so important for a hotel!
