Upon arriving at Legacy by the Sea, we were greeted by Karen, who works at the front desk. She was very cheerful and accommodating. She told us about our room and gave us directions on parking.
We went up to our room (on the 14th floor) and it had everything you would need. A king size bed, a kitchenette and a bathroom. Past the kitchenette was the living room with a couch and a gliding chair. There's also a balcony with two chairs and the view was absolutely incredible. All the rooms at Legacy by the Sea have gulf views, which is a big plus. Everything was nice and clean and the AC worked REALLY WELL.
Even though Legacy was probably at 80 percent capacity, it was actually very quiet. I never noticed much noise, even during the day. The staff was incredibly nice, especially Karen, who went out of her way to make sure everything we needed was taken care of.
I didn't get a chance to eat at Barefoot Beach Club which is located next door. This is also where I parked, due to my schedule and all the parking spaces being taken when I arrived back at my room at night. The walk from Barefoot to the Legacy is maybe 50-100 feet. Not much of a walk at all if you've ever stayed at a large hotel.
Overall, I'd give it 4.5 stars out of 5. It's a great value for the money.
On a personal note, I wish the hotel was smoke-free. Nothing like going out on the balcony for some fresh air, only to have it invaded by a continuous chimney of nicotine obnoxiousness one floor down.
