“Superb hotel!!!!!”
Reviewed May 29, 2011

Sometimes its the management and staff running a hotel which makes all the difference, and this is the case with The Legian. Physically the hotel itself is very nice with large well appointed rooms ( so large the light switches are a bugger to find), large well kept grounds and pool, nice hip ing the has been well looked after, although the styling has an older robust feel, rather than some more contemporary hotels, and this seems to suit the target clientele.

The staff and management of the hotel are fantastic, as other reviews have pointed out they are helpful friendly and know your surname even though we only stayed 3 nights. Our departing flight was at midnight and checkoutform the hotel was at 12noon, but they have a spare suite for guests to use (1hour bookings) at no cost plus we were able to stay at the hotel (luggage in storage) all day and use the facilities. We spent the day by the beach and boogie boarding before watching the sunset, using the courtesy suite and leaving for the airport. We oveheard others who had been at the airport since midday, so this service made all the difference.

Ignore the bad review, the rooms are fully equipped and the tv is in the living room not the bedroom, you should get up to watch and why would anyone go to Bali to watch tv anyway!

The reason what makes this hotel so fabulous is the extremely helpful and friendly staff. We have been here for five days and have had the most splendid time. Our room is perfect, ample space inside, tastefully furnished, views direct out onto the sea and a bed to die for. The Spa is also definitely worth a visit. Each masseur has learnt each massage for three months before they can practice and they are heavenly. The Tibetan Hot Stone massage is highly recommended. Ignore the review of the person who wrote such disparaging remarks. None of it is true. I could not recommend the Legian more highly.

Absolutely stunning room and view with two balconies. They have thought of everything and then some. Very friendly staff always willing to help. Hotel is expensive but worth the cost for special stay. Much of staff welcomed me by name by second day. Beach is lovely to look at but rough while we were there. Not much beach at high tide but very wide at low tide as it is almost flat. Great theme suppers. Suggest you walk up beach to next hotel ( under construction) for a wonderful beachfront dinner. Not much in the immediate neighbourhood besides a variety store. Taxi needed to go into town unless you like a walk on fairly poor street. Significant security at the hotel. Free soft drinks in room bar, ice delivered every afternoon, twice a day room clean with fresh towels each time. Sun tan lotion and ice water brought to pool lounges.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms are ocean front and wonderful

We stayed for three nights at the Legian and everything was perfect. We were upgraded to a one bedroom suite which was awesome: large, comfortable, all kind of amenities. We didn't like Seminyak that much so we spent most of our time in the hotel, at the beach, pool, bar or restaurant. The staff was friendly and helpful - on our day of departure we got a late check out at 7pm. Overall a great stay.

Well, you can ignore the review below from who seems to be a serial complainer. I was there at the same time as this person and experienced none of the negative points he raises. This hotel is in a great position in the north of Seminyak away from the hordes but close enough to the action if you need it. The beach is clean and has wonderful surf to jump around and body-board in. The hotel has more of a members-club/boutique feel to it, especially when atmospeherically lit at night. Rooms are huge: the one-bedroom suite we had was 110 sq m PLUS the large terravce outside. They are stylishly decorated in subtle neutral colour schemes with all mod cons including some nice touches like Bose I-pod docks.
The pool area is lovely with a tiered swimming pool leading down to the beach and very comfy day-beds elevated up from the beach.
But, the best thing about the hotel, apart from the rooms, is the service. It is second to none, Everyone, from the pool-attendants constantly refilling your water glasses and checking you are ok to the wonderful General Manager, Carla, is striving to ensure your stay is as special as possible.
One small criticism...the bar-tender at the pool-bar could mabe fine-tune his cocktail making skills, especially at their prices!
Overall a great hotel for anyone from romantic couples to young families.

I don'y know where the other people have stayed that reviewed this previously. Maybe they have never been in a five-star hotel but my experience with this place is horrible.
The hotel is old and is in disrepair for a supposed 5-star hotel
The first room I was allocated was located adjacent to a construction site
The second room offered was still next to the construction
The third room offered was not satisfactory
The furniture is old
No amenities are offered in the room
The balcony has no lights so we cannot use it at night
The bath overflow was not working - the bath tub overflowed onto the bathroom floor - the bathroom floor had no drain.
The bed is small
No TV in the bedroom
The AC not working properly
Food that we ordered was not good - for a sandwich the bread was stale
The towels and bed linen are old and grey rather than white.

The pictures shown for this hotel on its website and the description of the hotel and its facilities are misleading.

This hotel has spoilt my trip to Bali. It is by far and away the worst value for money for any hotel that I have ever stayed in.

As it is late at night here we will stay one night but will check out in the morning and find a proper hotel.

I believe that the Legian should be removed from your site as it is in no way a leading hotel in anything except deception.

Loved the location, the hotel, the service and just the small touches that completed my experience there...

The staff were friendly and nothing was too small for them to attend to. I had an issue with the air conditioning as it was getting too hot in the evenings when it came time to sleep and I only mentioned it casually thinking I was just having hot flashes but after further investigations, they found a fault. They fixed it and I slept better on the 3rd night.

Comfy beddings, good shower pressure.... great view from my balcony. I did not have to leave it to view Bali's sunset... I just sat with a drink in hand.

I would suggest not leaving the hotel altogether as it could be a lovely honeymoon or a great romantic getaway for couples.... I look forward to bringing my husband there in the future.
