Legacy Vacation Resorts-Indian Shores
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 26, 2011

We are owners at Legacy in Orlando and traded part of our week to be closer to the ocean. We didn't really know what to expect because we had never been to this area of Florida before. We were so pleasantly surprised at how well the property has been maintained. There are ongoing efforts, such as painting, to freshen the property up.

Our family had what is considered a 3 bedroom unit. It is actually a studio room with 2 double beds and a connecting unit that has a king bed in the bedroom and a queen sleeper sofa. It worked out perfectly for our family, because we were travelling with our "almost grown" children (ages 20, 19 & 15). They were able to have their privacy and stay up as late as they wanted without bothering us old folks or the grandbaby.

The staff are excellent!!! The front desk clerks were always accomodating. Melissa, the activities director, is the nicest person I've EVER met. She's so sweet and goes above and beyond her job description to make sure the guests are having a good time.

We were able to sit on our balcony and watch dolphins and manatee in the canal right outside our rooms. On the back balcony we could see the many birds that would perch in the area behind the hotel. The beach was an easy stroll across the street. It has the prettiest white powder sand I've ever seen and gorgeous sunsets that we were able to enjoy almost every evening.

There are a couple things that I would change if given the opportunity. However, they aren't so bad that we won't go back again. There is no free Wi-Fi and there is only one computer in the office that guests can use. But after all, you're on vacation. You don't wanna be tied to the computer all the time anyway. There are no washer and dryers in the unit. There are 2 washers and 2 dryers in the office that can be used by guests at a cost of $1.25 per cycle.

Overall, Lagacy Indian Shores is a great place to stay!! We will trade our Orlando week for Indian Shores again next year and plan to bring friends with us. But as some of the other reviews have stated, this is not a hustling, bustling place. So if you are wanting non-stop action, you won't enjoy this place at all. There are things to do if you make the effort, but this is not a party every night and all day kinda place. And that is what makes it perfect for families like mine.

We could not have enjoyed our stay here more. The units are huge, and well furnished although not luxurious. Kitchen and bathroom had everything we needed, and everything worked and was up to date. The facility is small and only unit wide, so each unit fronts on a canal and backs onto a city-owned park, keeping the city noise at a minimum. There is a small but well-maintained pool and a large dock at the back, where I spent every possible spare moment in company with the great blue herons, pelicans, and other assorted sea birds. Oystercatchers were nesting on the roof, a family of manatees visited the canal every day, and it was a quick walk across the street to the beach .... idyllic.

It has some flaws; it would be nice if there were someone at the desk 24 hours a day and if the pool were larger. Note that this is not a party place ... if the above description sounds boring, then head up to Clearwater Beach instead. But we had our teenage and pre-teen children with us, and they all thought it was wonderful. I absolutely cannot wait to get back here.

One of the best places we've stayed in ,in Florida. Lovely large rooms with everything at hand .Loved the little pier at the back to sit with a cold beer or two at sunset . Beach just a short walk over a crossing and plenty of places to shop and eat.

We stay here when we can get in with RCI - this time we rented a one bedroom unit. Excellent - this is a very good resort - even though it is not a "waterfront property" - intracoastal waterway is visible from some portions of resort.

Room Tip: Das Hotel ist klein, alle Zimmer gehen auf Palmen/Wiese und den Kanal. Wir hatten 104.
