“Loved the Legend's Edge!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2006

We stayed in the Bluebelle building in early July. The two bedrooms, two baths, full kitchen, and large living area villa was beautifully decorated and well-appointed. Everything was spotless and appeared to be new.

We enjoyed the pool and the really large hot tub. The propane gas grills by the pools were "turned on" during the day so that you don't have to worry about bringing charcoal.

We enjoyed the dive-in movie nights at the Marriott hotel nearby. The movies were shown on a movie screen right by the main pool.

Yes, there was construction right next to the Bluebelle building, but we didn't think the noise was too bad.

To get to a real beach, you do have to drive off the property. We went to St. Andrews State Park and swam by the jetty. The water on the Gulf side was so clear, the sand was so white - we stayed too long because we didn't want to leave the beach.

As guests (and not timeshare owners), we had complementary daily maid service. They loaded/unloaded the dishwasher, replaced the towels, didn't make the beds, but was nice to have the villa spiffed up.

We ate at Captain Jack's seafood buffet - the crab legs were very good.
A local resident recommended Uncle Ernie's in Panama City. We had lunch there and enjoyed the grilled grouper sandwich and the fried soft shell crab sandwich. The sandwiches were served on croissants, not french bread.

We went to Shell Island via a tour on the Ashley Gorman. Be aware that any shuttle to Shell Island is expensive. Even the shuttle provided at and by the state park was expensive - $11.50 for an adult. And, nothing is provided. However, Shell Island (the Gulf side, not the bay side) is full of shells and sand dollars! Of course, what's available depends on the weather activity going on in the Gulf!

Oh, the tour on the Ashley Gorman provided "dinner". Dinner was a turkey and cheese sandwich, chips, and a watered down soda drink. For kids, it was a hot dog, chips, and soda. It was a three hour tour: 1 hour to get to Shell Island, 1 hour on Shell Island, and 1 hour to get back. Can't understand why it takes so long to get to Shell Island. Anyway, dinner isn't served until we're heading back so we didn't eat until 7-ish. By this time, the kids were starving. Of course, there were chips and candies for sale on board. I don't think we'll be taking this tour again. But, you have to go to Shell Island at least once.

We liked this place so much that we went ahead a bought another vacation for next year.

Overall, we had fun on this trip and would definitely stay at the Legend's Edge again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2006

We stayed here for three nights during the first week of June 2006. This is a beautiful place that is away from the traffic and congestion by the beaches. There was some construction going on directly next to the villas and be warned that they start EARLY in the morning on this! We enjoyed our stay and the people and the pool were very nice. The Villas are large and spacious! My one big complaint is that the pool is open until midnight and parents think that is a great place to dump their kids and let them scream and holler until they go back to their room. This was very rude we thought and showed an uncaring for other guests on the part of the parents. Other than that, we really enjoyed our time and visit at this location. When go to this resort, make sure you check out Captain Andersons restaurant the best seafood we had all week

This is a nice place, but there is so much construction going on, that everything is a mess and it's noisy. They are building more and more density on this property. It's somewhat removed from the rest of the town, so if you want to go to a nice beach, you have a ways to drive. Also, when we were ready to check out, the people at the front desk were trying to get us to pay for an extra night. I called up the manager, and he fixed the problem quickly. He said that is not the policy during the off-season, but apparently the front desk didn't know that.

The legends edge was a great resort. The pool was very big. it is located in bay point, which was away from the spring break crazyness. I would definitely recommend it. the only thing was the bluebelle building was smaller than the azalea building, so stay in the azalea building.

Excellent property. I stayed with my family of six and this was a special place among the aging and run down town. The staff was friendly and the room was spacious and clean. We were surprised at the daily cleaning service provided along with the large beach towels that were replinished in our room every morning. The staff even emptied our dishwasher daily! The pool area was extremely spacious and they even had a ping pong and pool table available. The resort activities could be improved upon. The person running the children's games didn't have a lot of enthusiasm. They also charged quite a bit for the extra activities such as the crafts and ice cream socials but it was optional so I can't complain too much!

I was here a week in early July, 2004. Golf is fantastic and the suites overlook the 17th fairway. The pool is quite large with a seperate kiddie pool and hot tub. The suites were quite large and clean. Hotel amenities from the Marriott hotel next door are included, and there is a small private beach located there. This property would benefit someone who wants a quiet getaway without the congestion of downtown. Bar hoppers and extreme party goers should look for something closer to the strip.

This is a very nice timeshare unit on St. Andrews bay. Me and my family stayed there in May of 2004 as part of a timeshare solicitation. The units are exceptional with two full baths, a full kitchen, and a large living area. The units are decorated in a very modern bright motif. The pool area is quite simply one of the nicest I have ever seen that is great for families. The property is mostly suited to people that do not mind being on their own (no restuarant or bar). While staying at the property you do have reciprocal privileges with the ajoining bay point resort. In summary this is a great place to stay as a temporary guest but I would not commit to a timeshare because the numbers simply do not work out.
