“TOUR OPERATOR VERY RELIABLE & HELPFUL”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

It was a weekend retreat with my son to Cherating. I wanted to bring him to the turtle sanctuary & enjoy the beach. Bought a deal through groupon and boy, I'm glad I made the right choice!! Like I was hitting a jackpot. Not only the location is just great, with the beach right in front of the hotel, the room is sooo spacious and clean too. Nevermind that the telly is the box type, Im not there to sit in the room! But the BEST PART IS THE WATER SPORTS OPERATOR that was available in the hotel. Not only they have been helpful to plan the activity through out the stay, they were kind enough to drive us around for local culinary experience. Upon arrival, we went and spent the evening on the beach. At night, the tour manager sent us to watch firefly on a boat ride at a nearby river. We had dinner after that at a local 'ikan bakar' restaurant. The next day, we went for a swim at the sea, went on ATV ride in the woods, then do water sports, lazing by the pool and after lunch, we went to the turtle sanctuary. We had our tea time in Hai Ping Kemaman and went back to our hotel for a late check out. I have to say that it is worth every penny spent for a wholesome 2days 1 night trip to Cheratin.GREAT LOCATION, NICE HOSPITALITY & EXCELLENT RECREATION ACTIVITY TOUR GUIDE AVAILABLE IN THE HOTEL COMPOUND.

Room Tip: Choose the ones facing the sea and nearby the coffee house.

Spent two nights there. T booked for three but giot a room with two signgle bad. I agreed to use the sofa bed for my youngest daughter...The matress was disgusting, lots of old blood on it!!
The bath room needs an urgent investment.Looks old, and dirty. The ceiling paint was falling down. The smell inside the room did not indicate that it had been used for a while. Then wondering why i was given that room where the hotel was almost empty.

Final disappointment : the major pool could not be used because of its greenish colourof its water...

We had no other option, if you have pick another hotel in the area.

Room Tip: avoid room 147

Dear Kualacorinne,

Greetings from Legend Resort Cherating

Please accept my sincerest apologies over your rather unpleasant experience at our hotel and my personal gratitude for your insightful feedback. We have proceeded to rectify these issues by offering the room a fresh new coat of paint and sprucing up the furniture. As per the pool, maintenance works have been completed and the pool is now as good as new. Rest assured we will continually strive to better ourselves and we most certainly hope that you will visit us again soon.

Warmest Regards,

The hotel itself isn't bad, a bit run down in places perhaps, but what really upset me was the receptionist staff. Arrived at 1.30 pm, and the hotel was not full - you could tell by the carpark. However we were told that rooms were being cleaned and to come back later. We came back at 2.30 pm, and a room was still not ready. After a long journey, that really annoyed me. When the head receptionist came a room was allocated immediately. So why couldn't they have done that on arrival at 1.30 ??? So what could have been a pleasant one night stay turned out to be an upseting experience which could have been avoided. It's just not acceptable.

Room Tip: For a good room go to a different hotel.

Went to legend resort with my wife and family. We got our rooms upgraded for free to the deluxe sea views. These were nice and clean, with good sea views. We enjoyed the swimming pool and buffet breakfast however other food was quite expensive and average.

Resort has good potential and needs more attention. There is a lack of activities. No surf boards, kayaks, and the banana boat was always cancelled due to it being too rough (though the waves were very small). When searching for further things to do everything costs extra to hire (eg pool toys, tennis rackets, hiring court). The tennis court, gym, squash court and exterior (roads, park) of the hotel all very dated and need updating. Booking activities off site costs extra through the hotel (about double) and I'd recommend to travel to cherating town where things are cheaper. You may prefer to stay in this area to save on taxi rides (it appeared other tourists were staying here as legend is pretty quiet).

On a plus there is free drinks for ladies all night, the beach is nice though becomes brown when the tide changes and the river mud creates a coke coloured water.

Hopefully this hotel can update its activity base and clean up the exterior in future.

Room Tip: Go for the grand deluxe with sea rooms

We had 5 rooms booked for group of friends (with kids) stayed for 2 nights. Resort's location is good with friendly staff. Especially appreciative of Reception manager Kamal who was very patient during our check out process where we had some confusion in the rates. Please do book online as they have genuine discounts and all 2 night bookings come with breakfast. Good variety of breakfast and the cook made some vegetarian dishes for us for breakfast. There is also a live band at the bar from 9PM on weekends. Overall it is a fun place to be either to relax or some team activities. be careful with the beach as it is infested with Jelly fish....Due to low tide we noticed many dead jelly fishes and did not venture into the beach

Room Tip: Ask for refurbished block just adjacent to the beach

The resort is located in a nice beach area in Cherating. Some rooms faces the sea and offers a good view. In terms of decor, the resort looks a bit tired and is due for a makeover. While the outdoor pool is great, the rooms are quite old and sparsely furnished. They do have some of the newer looking rooms where a premium will be charged. Not much activity in the resort, while food at the dining room was just average.

Room Tip: Request a sea facing room.

Spent 3D2N there. The resort is nice and we had our seaview grand deluxe room. Had a relax and pleasant stay enjoying sea breeze and waves. But don't forget to close the balcony door around evening,unless u want to become blood bag for the mosquitoes.
