“Good Times, Good Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

My friend and I reluctantly stayed at Legends after reading a lot of the reviews here. I am SO GLAD WE DIDN'T CHANGE OUR MINDS. Legends is what most people are saying, it is basic, it is clean, the staff are friendly and kind. The location is AMAZING. We have stayed at several resorts in Negril and this is the most basic of them but it had everything we needed. We did not choose the all inclusive option as we knew places to eat outside the resort. I would do the same again. We did eat breakfast at the hotel one day, it was hot, fresh and served with a smile.
We brought a kettle, beach towels and some breakfast items. I would suggest bringing beach towels, wash clothes (I use a pouf so didn't need one), and a cup of some sort for when you brush your teeth. We always had fresh clean towels, the floor mat was a little worse for ware, but meh who cares. The beds were SUPER comfortable. We did stay on the beach side as we were not sure how big the resort was. Our next stay we have decided that we will save the extra money and stay Garden side as the walk is minimal and Bertrum and the others are always there to cross you over with a smile!
If you are looking for entertainment, round the clock people bugging you to play games and having loud music played all day, this is NOT the place for you. If you are looking for a simple place, with simple decor, with amazing people on an amazing beach, this IS the place for you.
We loved it and will be back again!!!!

My husband and I just got married at this resort. We spent a week in Jamaica. This was the best decision we have ever made.It was the most relaxing event possible. Not only was it a wonderful, beautiful vacation but the resort staff took care of every detail. They even calmed me down when it was raining an hour before our wedding. The staff at Legends (especially Paul, Adrian, Shanna, and Aneka) spoiled us. We wanted for nothing. The food was good, drinks were great. This is the perfect place to get away, relax and do nothing. But if you wanted some adventure and fun, the staff was very knowledgeable and eager to help.
The wedding itself was better than I could have ever imagined. All of the pre-planning was handled early and quickly. After arriving at the resort, the staff quickly got any last minute details resolved so that we could start having fun. We actually got married at the sister resort, Samsara, on the cliffs. The setting was perfect. We had a beautiful sunset over gorgeous water. The staff did a great job setting everything up and make sure the event went smoothly. We had the event live-casted so our family could watch at home. The photographer, Zavian, was amazing. We got over 400 stunning pictures; more than we anticipated.
We plan on going back as many times as we can. The all-inclusive was worth every penny. Also, the massages at the spa were excellent (not our first massages, but definitely the best). The only tip I have is if you are going to be there Saturday night, plan on going out to party because all of Negril is awake and partying.

Room Tip: We stayed on the beach side, excellent room because close to the beach, bar, and restaurant. Garden...

we paid more for beach side, I tought it was ocean view but not! but very practical to be beach side because you are near the bar , buffet and the beach!
buffet ok, no restaurant, only 1 dessert in the buffet
coffee excellent (bring a small bottle of banana rhum cream to put in your coffee the morning! ;-
Excellent service by Mrs Sheneka and Jennifer and also the barman Clayton! Thanks!
I would go back there!

Room Tip: choose the beach side!

Hey Eric! Thank you for your positive review. We appreciate it very much. Great to know you were beachside, close to all the action, the pool, beach, restaurant and beach bar. As said, we do offer great coffee in the mornings and around the clock. Straight from the Blue Mountains and roasted to perfection. Great service is what we aim for and our staff makes it look easy. Thanks once more for your comments. Bless!

I am a REAL person with a REAL review on this resort. I am not picky and I'm not a huge traveler. This trip was one of the best i have been on in a long time. The staff is WONDERFUL and seeing that anyone saying different - especially seeing that it was during the time i was there - shocks me. The managers, bartenders, servers, house keepers - all have a HUGE smile on their face and there was never a question or favor we asked for that was answered with a 'no' - not one. The staff made sure that we were happy at all times, but not over the top in our faces. Clayton (bartender) is one of the sweetest kids ever and we were happy to see him every time we went downstairs. The whole island goes off of the 'nothing is a problem' feel and we felt it more than ever at Legends. The shuttles were always on time and if we needed an extra ride because WE were running late - there was no issue. The food is what you would expect from any hotel and the drinks were great. I would definitely suggest the all inclusive because we did not pay a dime the 7 days we were there either on our resort or at Samsara. We spend half of our time at our resort and the other half on Samsara's resort - both fun but Legends takes the cake. Bring your own towels. A/C is ice-cold. We were fighting over the blankets the entire night :) Reserve at the beach side building. Trust me. Shanna and Paul were wonderful as well.You really learn to make friendships with the staff here. They are there to help you have a great time. The beach is powder white and security is on point. There are lots of activities and we felt very safe. I will definitely be back next year - we have decided to make a tradition out of it. If you are looking for a ''fancy resort'' - look elsewhere. This is the real Jamaican feel and everything is wonderful - you get your money's worth.

Thank you staff - you all made our trip such a great experience and we will be seeing you next year!

Legends is nice enough. More than casual . With a lot of regulars. Negril beach is always lovely . We did all inclusive , we did it because it was cheap. We enjoyed ourselves. The staff was great . We really liked all the people we dealt with. We also met other nice people staying there. Just the place is old and could use some tlc , but we still love Jamaica!!! If you are casual and don't worry about amenities. You'll be fine

Hi Jennifer! Thank you for posting your review. Legends is located on Negril’s famous 7 mile white sandy beach. Perfect location to relax, unwind and have fun. We are happy to know the staff provided quality service that made your stay comfortable and also that your reservation included our reasonable priced All Inclusive Meal Plan. You may be interested to know that we’ve just recently completed the installation of 40” flat screen wall TV’s in all of our rooms which is a great addition to our accommodations. Our guest love the new TV’s. We would be more than happy to have your return trip booked at Legends. Thank you once more for taking the time to make this review. Bless!

Stayed at Legends for 4 nights. The best thing was the friendly staff. They will always greet you with a smile and a good drink. The beach is powder white sand Legends is located directly on 7 mile beach. Location is perfect within close walking distance to many good places to eat and drink also Time Square Mall is right across the street. While on the beach hustlers bother you all the time the guards tell them to keep going but once you step over the boundary of the resorts they hound you constantly. You can't even take a romantic walk on the beach day or night without getting hounded. You say no thank you and they want to shake your hand, want to know your name if you don't stop they will follow you. They are offended if you ignore them that is in their eyes a sign of disrespect. That drove my fiance crazy. Food is good. Do the all inclusive its well worth the money.

We booked three nights at the Legends Resort in Negril after leaving the Half Moon resort in Montego Bay in April. The service at Legends resort was poor. The staff does not greet you in a friendly manner, in fact, they look at you quite strangely. The cable TV in our room barely worked. The manager did switch out our TV when we first arrived when the house keeper cut on our TV and discovered it didn't work (so at least we had something). We had two double bed rooms and the room quality was sub par. The beds were not vey comfortable and we didn't have a good view from our room.

We also had issues with getting the staff to actually respond to our needs. We called twice to get extra wash cloths and never got them. We also called twice to toilet paper and didn't receive anything until the next day. Also, the wifi offered was very bad. We paid $36 each for wifi service that didn't work half the time and was extremely slow. Additionally, we had an all inclusive deal where we received free meals and drinks from the hotel's restaurant. Unfortunately, the meal selection from the resort restaurant was terrible. We ordered pizza when we arrived that wasn't warm and didn't taste good. The next day they offered cheese sandwiches. Yes, cheese sandwiches! Not to mention, the soda was always flat. Because of this we started frequenting the restaurant next door to Legends which had food quality that was much better.

The only decent thing about Legends is that the resort building is a short walk to the water. The water is pretty shallow but it is a half decent view when you sit out on the sand.

I know this resort review is all over the place but I honestly don't have anything good to say about this resort. The quality of this resort should be likened to that of a Motel 6. I would not recommend this resort to anyone.
