Three couples in their 60's & 70's spent four nights at Hotel Leyenda. Wow! What a find. Rooms, grounds, pool, food and service were excellent. Playa Carillo beach is beautiful and not crowded. The hotel takes a trailer with showers and restrooms in it for guests to use at the beach. Plus, they will bring you lounge chairs to use... More

This is a lovely hotel and we found the staff to be very kind and helpful. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained with a beautiful warm pool and the food in the restaurant was very good.

After 5 days of not having luck staying in nice hotels for reasonable price, this is definitely a giant highlight. Everything is clean and works. The people are smiley and helpful. There is a nice big pool and a big well-maintained garden. Restaurant offers a rich menu. Their fish was delicious. Definitely I can recommend this place.

We just spent one week at the Hotel Leyenda and enjoyed it very much. The staff is courteous and friendly and the restaurant food is good. The hotel provides a shuttle service to the nearby excellent Playa Carillo complete with chairs and shower. The rooms are clean and the pool is great. Go there, you won't regret it.

Very friendly staff and wonderful food. Nice surroundings and rooms. Comfortable and relaxing. I recommend it wholeheartedly. Its easy to get to the beach and its amazing. We had our own car and could easily visit both playa carillo and samara but we liked playa carillo the most. I hope to be able to return to this hotel.

We had a very pleasant stay at Hotel Leyenda. Nice rooms,clean and quiet. Maybe a bit too quiet, not so many guests at the hotel when we where there. In the beginning of January. The food in the hotel restaurant was excellent and the service also.

Beautiful hotel, great rooms. Paid $45/night. We arrived a day late without notice and the manager carried our booking over so we didn't have to pay the night we weren't there. Very helpful. A bit tucked away. Need a car to get to Playa Carillo, Samara, or any place to eat. To get there make sure you take Hwy 150... More

This hotel is an amazing bargain for the area (where things tend to be expensive), very nice, clean, pretty hotel with a good restaurant, and great pool for a decent price. I can highly recommend it. Even if you just come for lunch or dinner you can still use the pool, which makes for a relaxing afternoon. Try the tuna... More
