Where do I begin? The other reviews I read before booking were pretty accurate. Since I was vacationing with teens, I didn't need anything fancy and it is NOT! I did not want a walked off compound and wanted a local feel. The hotel has not been updated in 35 + years maybe? My guess is that the Indian owners...

The location is gorgeous on the cliffs overlooking the ocean and the staff is incredibly friendly. O'Wayne behind the bar is fantastic as is Sasha, who goes around during the day by the pool giving complimentary back massages (but please tip her!! She is great!). The drinks are fine. We had done a Groupon and upgraded to a cottage. It...

Location was great however Negril is 1 1/2 hr drive from Montego Bay. It was a good value bought from Groupon for 5 night stay (all inclusive) in the garden rooms across the street from the resort. It is quiet, but one night, we could hear our neighbors in the next room arguing late at night. I would prefer to...

Exceeded our expectations in terms of value for the price. Staff was very friendly & good & place seemed well-managed. Our superior ocean side room looked just like the photos. It was very spacious & clean. Not sure if all oceanside rooms have ocean views or not, but our 2nd floor room had a great view across resort out to...

My husband saw this place online last year and we knew we had to try it even with reviews being up and down. This was our first non-AI and our first cliff stay. We traveled with our sons 11 and 12 and upgraded to superior king cottage to get 2 beds. ($383 for 2 nights.) Check in took at least...

I arrived to Legends to celebrate my birthday on the beach. At first glance I was disappointed with the older looking grounds and rooms. After a short walk on the beach, I could see that neighboring properties on 7 mile beach are about the same. I had to remind myself of how the elements of sand, sun, water can quickly...
