Historical Traveller Reviews of Legends Beach Resort Hotel
First experience All-inclusivefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The AC was extremely noisy, and had a hard time getting the room cool enough to sleep, especially with the heat from the kitchen below, and afternoon sun in the french doors. Staying right on the beach can be noisy, not from our hotel, but from others about three properties away on either side. If you're not early-to-bed, early-to-rise types, it probably wouldn't bother you. In spite of the problems, some of which could be encountered anywhere, I'd have to say that for a budget vacation, we enjoyed our time at Legends.
Basic but adequatefrom A TripAdvisor Member
However, their water is heated by solar energy so don't expect a warm shower in the morning. Its very cold! When we came in from the beach in the afternoon and showered, then we finally had warm water. Our housekeeper was very good - kept the room spotless. However, it seems to be difficult to get any extra towels. She had to "check" first before we finally got an extra washcloth. There are no handtowels - just 1 washcloth and bath towel per person. The food was mediocre at best. There was little variety and by day 3, everything started to taste the same. Needless to say, we went elsewhere. Kuyaba next door is excellent - in both service, friendliness and food. Would highly recommend it. The office staff at Legends could use a crash course in customer service. They are not the most friendly and haven't seemed to master the art of smiling. We felt they do not appreciate questions and are not the most helpful. They come across as "strictly business" and thats that. The beach is beautiful, chairs are plentiful, shade is limited. Overall, we love Negril and will go back someday, but probably won't stay at Legends.
Okay, but not 3 stars!from A TripAdvisor Member
Unfortunately, I can't come up with anymore positives. The beach is small and sometimes it's hard to find a chair especially in the shade.
The food was pretty good - but not great. They were out of tap beer in the afternoon one day - with no apologies (I went all-inclusive but I don't recommend it). The room was large enough with a nice balcony, but didn't have washcloths or hand towels. The beds are uncomfortable. The bathroom lacked hot water and could have been cleaner. If my wife would have been with me, we would have checked out and found another place (her with higher standards!). I did have a good time, but I will spend more for a nicer Hotel next time.

t believe the website!!!!!!from A TripAdvisor Member
And speaking of the beach, Negril is not the nice town with the nice beach that it claims to be. First of all, the town is very run-down, not modernized whatsoever, you'd be better off staying in Montego Bay if you want nice. The ater was very pretty, but that was about it, the sand was not. I've seen better beaches in Texas. If you wanted to lay out at Legends, they crammed you into this tiny little space because they didn't want you to go off the property even 5 feet. And you had the choice of either looking at nasty women with their tops off (seriously, these women had no business going topless, and anyone that told them otherwise is blind), or you had the choice of looking at men in speedos. They do not mention on their website that they allow nude sunbathing, and if they had, I would've never stayed there. I'm sorry, but they need to keep that stuff in Europe where it's expected. Too many Americans visit Jamaica, and we have more respect for ourselves than that, not to mention, I saw several families with children. That's just what I want my 10 year old son to see, I might as well buy him a playboy mag.And to top it all off, the restaurant was right there on the beach, and you might be sitting there eating your breakfast, and all of a sudden you've got boobs in your face. And by the way, I'm so glad we didn't opt for the all-inclusive here because the food was awful,and the service was even worse. We ordered iced tea one night, and then the next night we ordered it again and the server told us they couldn't make it. They didn't have over half of what was on the menu, so we'd had enough. We went 20 feet next door and ate at Kuyaba, which was 1000 times better. It was elegant and charming, everyone was incredibly friendly and the food was excellent. The ironic thing was, everything was the same price as Legends...we check out there hotel online when we got back and the rooms were nicer and about the same price, if not cheaper. We couldn't believe we didn't find that place when we were searching for a place to stay. So if you really want to waster your time and money in Jamaica, and you're not want to spend too much, but are looking for something nice, stay at Kuyaba. But seriously, I will never visit Jamaica again. The people are disrespectful, and for being such a poor country, they are extremely greedy!!!
Great for the pricefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The Worst Hotel on Earthfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The shower was dirty and basically just a concrete slab, we had to fight everyday to get some clean towels. The food was alright and a reasonable prize (5 or 6 dollars). The wait staff, security and water sport people were all really nice. But those were about the only good things about the hotel. On our final night there someone broke into one of our rooms and went through our things, taking any money they could find. They even left muddy footprints throughout the room. When we tried to call for help we couldn't because the hotel cuts your phone off the day before you leave. So on the last day we were forced to all sleep in the same room with our luggage against the door scared that someone would try and come into the other room. When we tried to complain to the manager he basically called us liars and wouldnt help.
He tried to claim that he had a video camera there that sees who's going in and out of rooms and saw nothing. But that was a lie cause he wouldnt even let us see the tape or tell us whether or not he saw us entering or leaving the room. While we were in the front office another women came in talking about she was going to hurt her travel agent because the place was nothing like what she expected. Some of us even ended up with $200 phone bills from calling home twice for 5 minutes.
The lady at the front desk really LIED about the long distance charges saying it was only $4 to connect and 1.45 each minute afterward.
Although that is still ridiculous it definitely shouldnt equal a $200 phone bill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Regardless, the only reason i had any fun was because i was with my friends, but if you were going for a beautiful, relaxing trip and counting on the hotel to do that for you , THINK AGAIN. go down the street to hedonism II or sandals you'll get your money's worth there.
Pleasantly surprised ...after reading other reviews.from A TripAdvisor Member

Top Local Tips for Negril
Kuyaba Go eat at Kuyaba and lunck at Alfreds so you will not get scurvy.
how much to pay 300-400 jamaican. 300 for most places. roundtrip to Scotia bank was 300 or 400. Ricks can be done for 400.
great food great food can be found at: kuyaba (nxt door), rick's (on the cliffs), angelas (a few doors down), which are all great but can be pricey, cheaper good food can be found at: selinas cafe (across the street) and reggie cafe (a few doors down the main street). Great place to visit is the roaring river by mayfield falls although wear suitable footwear. you get a tour guide around a local village and a blue lagoon.
