Legends turned out to be a great trip. The water and beach were excellent. Bar service excellent. Breakfast very good, lunch OK, dinner good. If you are coming for the food, this is not the place. Mama the cook made the very best of what she had, but it was limited. Somethings like instant mash potatoes stand out.
The rooms were good. Not beachfront, but clean and simple. It would be about like a Quality Inn or Econo Lodge.
One thing to keep in mind with this location is the Jamaican hustle. Pretty much everyone around you is constantly trying to hustle you in one way or another. The difference between here and resorts in say Mexico is the hustle is everywhere and just gets to be old after a while. There is not one single thing you can do without the hustle. Samasara does give a nice relief from the hustle.
The bonus of being able to go to Samsara was a real plus. You do not have to go at the scheduled times, it is only $5/couple outside the free shuttle, so if you want to take the 10am and come back early or go late and catch the 4pm back it is only $5/couple. The pool, bar, and general set up are better at Samsara, The benefit of Legends over Samsara is the beach, and being able to walk to other spots. The water at Samsara can get rougher than some may like to get into.
