In this post, I share with you Legends Beach Hotel located in Negril, Jamaica. Interestingly enough, this location is the sister hotel to another place in which I have already reviewed before on ReggaeSteem.io, Samsara On The Cliffs. Both of these Boutique Hotel locations allow the travel-goer to really feel, know, and vibe the real Jamaica. They also have a free shuttle bus that travels back and forth, bringing you from the cliffs to the beach and vice versa if you ever want to take a day trip.

Legends is not a place I have ever stayed, but it is a location that I have passed numerous times walking the 7-mile beach or even stopping from time to time simply to relax. In 2007, super-irie and I stayed at the sister Samsara and took the free shuttle to Legends to hang out, vibe the beach, and hang with the people for a day.
Legends is located in a prime time spot on the 7-mile beach strip and offers the low-profile traveler type some key relaxation while still getting to know and feel the real Jamaica. When you are hanging at Legends, you will feel like just chilling and hanging out with the locals. None of this all-inclusive resort crap only leaving the bar area when you have to get up and go to the wash closet.

Legends offers a friendly environment even to those who are not paying customers. I remember one time stopping at Legends just to sit, relax, and get out of the hot Caribbean sun one mid-afternoon day. These sort and type of stays are the ones I generally opt for while straying away from high class, fancy resorts. The price is right, the amenities are sufficient, and the feel is generally super irie.

As I mentioned, Legends is centrally located on the 7-mile and offers a wide array of options such as music, great food and beverage options, as well as many local craft and art vendor setups nearby. Jamaicans are renowned for their friendly manner and willingness to share the irie vibes with anyone who respects the Rastafari culture, so take the time to appreciate not only the beautiful atmosphere and scenery but also the amazing people who call Negril home. I promise you don't have to partake in everything that is offered, and you will still be left with nothing but respect when parting ways with the Jamaican people.
