Things to Know

If you are looking for a comfortable, small, oceanfront hotel at a great price, Legends Beach Resort in Jamaica is the place for you.

Legends Beach Resort: Enjoy Reggae Vibes and Jamaican Flair

Discover beautiful Jamaica at Legends Beach Resort in Negril. Vibrantly colored buildings set among lush island vegetation create the perfect place to get into the island frame of mind.

This intimate hotel boasts two pools, one oceanside and one by the gardens. After poolside sunbathing, make your way to the beach for a leisurely stroll along the soft ivory sand. Thatched shades and coconut palm trees line this stretch of Negril's fabulous Seven Mile Beach. The warm water is always calm, so wade out and wriggle your toes in the soft sand of the ocean floor. Water sports are available courtesy of nearby vendors. For a memorable adventure, take the free shuttle to Samsara Cliff Resort and try cliff diving! There, you can also make arrangements for diving lessons and PADI certification.

When you're ready to chow down, Legends Restaurant is the place to go for homemade dishes created with fresh, local ingredients. Theme nights, like Pasta Fiesta Tuesday, keep dinnertime funky and fun. Things really heat up with Jamaican Me Crazy Fridays, when guests can cut loose with drinks and reggae music while enjoying live entertainers like thrilling fire displays. For an even greater selection of grub, check out Grill Night Thursday at Samsara Restaurant. To top it off, both restaurants have their own bars and keep the drinks flowing until 11pm. And, because Legends Beach Resort is located in the entertainment district, you can keep the party going all night long at nearby clubs and bars.

In addition to great food and an awesome location, the resort has its own spa. Indulge in a sea salt and apricot body scrub, or try a Japanese hot stone massage. You can even get your hair braided in cool, exotic styles. After a refreshing day at the spa, relax and watch the sunset from the private veranda of your Beachside Room.

    A week in Negril

    Just got back. The rooms are good and were cleaned well. Location on the beach is excellent and close to many restaurants and entertainment at night. We didn't find the vendors too annoying and bought some beach food. They do certainly try to gouge you though! The staff is hit and miss ranging from helpful and friendly to rude and ignoring. The food so so. We didn't go AI but be aware if you do that you only get buffet food, draft beer and local liquor. Bar is only open from 10 to 10. What annoyed me most was that they gate the beach entrance at 10 pm. So if you are out somewhere else on the beach after that time you have to go through another property out to the road and walk back, which can be kind of sketchy especially after a few drinks. Why do that to your guests? Most other places employ a security guard to watch who goes in and out. All in all if you want a budget vacation and your expectations are not too high give it a try.

    Nice beach 7 mile of it so they say

    The all inclusive was alright three meals a day.The bar was nice but it closed at 10 pm some evenings it seemed to close before.Also there was no wine on the all inclusive I did already know this but it was not there unless extra money was payed.My room was good on the Garden side but the bar and food and beach were all on the beach side across the road.The pool was near my room on the garden side it looked nice but I tried it once and it felt cold.Crossing the road was not a problem but outside the gates on both sides of the road there were always people trying to get you to stop and chat and spend money.The town was not far away but walking it was hot any time of day.What I liked was the beach and sea and the bar and the music which could be heard most of the time when in the sea most of the time it was okay to listen to.You could get a massage just yards away from the hotel on the beach side these were okay.Going outside the hotel with someone just for a drink was expensive I would stay inside the hotel and eat and drink if I went to Jamaica or Negril again I would choose a hotel that served drink until at least 11 pm and I would stay on the beach side so I did not have the problem of crossing the road each time to get back to my room also not having to avoid street vendors or other people outside both sets of gates on either side of the road.

    The truth

    This was our 3rd trip to Jamaica. Our 2nd time to Legends. We came back because of the Beach and the staff. If you need 12 bars, non stop activities, and swanky accommodations check out Royalton, Couples or Sandals at at least twice the cost. The front desk ladies are adorable, and always willing to help. My buddy George, always a smile and a good morning. The beach man Michael, please bring him a book. He will keep the gange peddlers away. The wait staff also are always friendly and eager to help. Miss Jean is out favorite chef along with Miss Veronica who will find a way around any food allergy. We appreciated all of their effort. The food is always tasty. Our buddy Kendrick is always there with a smile and willing to help. These people treat you like family. There are tons of things to do nearby. Thanks for another wonderful week. Hope to see you all soon
