I booked a twin and a king room, maybe it was due to low season, got free upgraded to sea view and the rooms are connected. Once sliding doors opened, I can walk straight to the beach, nice view it was.

Rooms are faily clean, bathroom with some mouldy smell, but not a big problem as the price was very cheap for big rooms like this.

Will come back to stay again.

This was my first booking through expedia and i found it very convenient as everything done online..A bit expensive but i understood that was a peak season during raya festive .We arrived around 5 pm and warmly greeted by a friendly receptionist .I accepted 2 single bed joined together since the kingsize bed all being taken .
The room seriouosly required major facelift as it had no difference compared to my last visit a few years back . The bulky sized television set still in the room . The moment i changed the channel..the volume went up..But the nightmare didnt end there .In the bath tub, there were 2 taps labelled with H &C . Seriously i thought C stands for Cold...by the moment i put it on, the hot water came out...OMG !!Luckily i managed to keep the baby away drom it, otherwise u could imagine what happened .
The operator took ages to answer my call requesting a baby cot . That night i went dinner with a buddy.The moment he parked his car infront of the lobby waiting for me,one of the staff immediately came and chased him away without any greeting or not even asked him politely..Seriously i think this hotel's customer service really sucks . i had the chance to see a local guest just arrived at the lobby,he took all the luggages from his car, he personally took the trolley and stacked up the belongings with no one from the hotel seemed to care.
During breakfast, i approached the egg station and requested half boiled eggs.I was promised they will be ready in few minutes.After 10 mins, nothing was ready.the funny answer i got when i asked back was there were too many guests . Wait the minute...i think all guests paid for the service and yet u took that as an excuse not to serve the customers better...After breakfast, immediately we checked out as i found out it was really waste of money to stay here...Overall , the service given was deteriorating and The Management need to look seriously on this...

We booked two rooms for two nights as we are travelling with 3 kids.
Room were clean, staff very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool by the sea is very nice.
That being said, this resort is a bit old and would need little refresh. The food is also not great. Breakfast buffet is so-so, and the dinner buffet we had was expensive and clearly not good.
The value is rather OK for the money overall....

Facade of the resort is pretty much similar to other resorts around, however they have an upper advantage in terms of facilities/activities. Our room was booked through Agoda so rate wise is alright. We found it odd that toothbrush was not provided for this resort,but luckily, we brought our own. Room is tired looking however it was decent enough for 2 nights's stay as the bed and pillows are surprisingly comfortable. Pool is large and resort has a clean beach. Food wise was average, went out for meals as there are options available. There is a live band in house. WIFI is provided only in the lobby area. Do consider other options before choosing this resort but it does suffice as a simple getaway.

We drove from Jb-Cherating it was short getaway after a very stressfull work & city life.
We took the Kota Tinggi-Mersing-Kuantan route approximately 5 hours drive. I been here to Cherating 3 years back with my family and now i went with my Hubby very long tiring journey alot of construction towards to Cherating area the signboard not very clear lucky we stop to ask direction the local. We booked in The Legend resort for one night. We reach in resort quite early as in 11am we was as usual thing no Early check in available as hotelier we truly understand hotel rules & tricks of early check in so we register ourselves and we was told by the reception lady Nisa that if the room is available "i will call you Sir" Hmmmm.......... this is something new to new so we went to restaurant to have our Branch after the long journey. Since check in time at 3pm and we was promise if the Room available she will call us with that hope went to drive around for sight seeing. Nothing much to see or look around unless if you are staying for longer period alot of attractive packages is available for scuba diving, snorneling and so on.
We book the fireflies river Cruise with Payong Travel Agent which only RM20 per person where by the Hotel charging their guest at $50 per pax. Since mu hubby very tired driving we decided to rest in resort lobby back to resort that was about 1.30pm while we are resting i saw few "amok" westerners are check in or registering in reception and i notice he got the key immediately without waiting a even one minute.... OK!!!!!! this is too much not only one guest there were 3 of them all of them got their key whereby went we came in the lady in reception in counter dont event bother to smile to us, and i really can see they different how she behave with locals and westerners. I waited for her to finish with them and i asked her is my room ready knowing that i was very pissed of with her attitude she immediately give me the key but it was two single bed.
To me it is ok as long i was inform about it was long walk but the view is pool view and we was upgrade to the next category as a service recovery. Talking about the room altough looking tired but the bed & pillow was SUPER very comfortable and the Tv channel very limited channel but they just change the TV to a flat screen TV. Nothing much o complaint about the rooms is good, bu no dental kit provided. The restaurant staff was very friendly & very helpful..
The food quality is good especially the Mamak Mee Goreng & the homemade Sausages for Breakfast. The variety of food selection need to be improve very limited variety not sure may be cause of Muslims Fasting month. The pool was good, beach is clean. Overall the Hotel is worth for money which we paid.
attraction we went Fireflies cruise was good but not many fireflies due to the weather. And also we had dinner in Chinese Seafood restaurant just at the entrance of the resort the food was ok average but the waiting time estimated about an hour.

Room Tip: Any Tourist attraction like fireflies or turtle watching please go the travel Agent directly is much...

Stayed in a junior suite which was located very near to the beach area & swimming pool. It's the end unit......hence no disturbance of view.

The weather was good & I could watch the sunrise & sunset clearly from my room while enjoying morning & afternoon coffee/tea.....it's such a nice view!

Room facility - ok but the white bedsheet is not that clean & there are torn parts on some parts of one of the bedshet layers. The toilet is too big.....

Surrounding resort area is nice but rooms are mainly quite far from the reception area. Swimming pool is nice-different pool for babies, children & adults hence they are not crowded.

Overall service & environment is nice.
