    Stunning cliff views and ocean views

    Absolutely loved my stay at this hotel! The food was great and so was the staff. Very friendly and professional staff who made you feel welcomed. The rooms were immaculately well decorated with hibiscus 🌺 and towels folded in swan designs. The pools were refreshingly relaxing and if you’re able to dive you’ve got the perfect cliffs to dive off from. We were also able to go on a boat tour of the Negril cliffs from the hotel which was perfect as we got to view the corals from the glass bottom boat. If you’re ever in Negril, Jamaica this place is well worth the stay. The price was also attractive and well worth our length of stay. Excellent sunset views and brilliant drinks and cocktail 🍹 from the bar. I’m definitely returning

    Love this place will definitely be back. Food was well cooked for each meal, chicken, fish or beef and Jamaican style. Had pasta options once or twice. No snacks. Drinks available at the one and only bar by the beach. Water available all day at bar. Beach at Legends is stunning but there are vendors. Two pools available. One small by the bar and one big across the street. Both are maintained well. Room are big with great AC. Staff are all extremely friendly. You have the option to visit the sister resort Samsara via free shuttle daily to and from Legends. Samsara doesn’t have a beach, only concrete dock like area with ladders to climb into the water. Not for beginner swimming as water is deep but clear. Wi-Fi in both hotels. No gym. Not like the big chain resorts, more quaint and family style. There is a street to cross at Legends but they provide a crossing guard who helps cross the street every time. Will be back for sure.

    Good hotel but...

    A big group of us stayed here receive for two weeks. On the whole it was a good place the rooms were nice, it was a great location, the breakfast was good and served by lovely staff, the garden was beautiful and maintained by a really nice guy called George. However there were two incidents that were really unpleasant, the first was that two members of our group had cash stolen from their rooms, the management were reasonably helpful and they said that they had fired the suspected person involved but it wasn't ideal. Secondly my partner was sexually harassed by their driver called Omar while she got a lift from him alone, disgusting behavior from this guy and I would warn any female guests from traveling in his cab especially alone, he also made highly inappropriate comments to my teenage niece, the guy is a total sleazeball and I really hope the hotel get rid of him for the safety of the guests. Having said all this I would still recommend the hotel as long as they deal with offending members of staff. Just be sure to avoid Omar like the plague.

    Ghiid cocktails and cliff diving

    I visited Samsara in October in the offseason. The check in was fine, the resort is brilliant for cliff jumping which I enjoyed thoroughly, it's a very good place just to chill out and relax. The cocktail menu for all inclusive is very good (highly reccomend the banana sunset and lovers leap) the staff were friendly, especially the woman who served the breakfast. You can get a free shuttle to Legends by the beach where your all inclusive still stands. All in all a nice place. Only bad experience I had was a moth the size of my head in the bathroom, but that was my fault for leaving the door open 😂
