N A. from Malaysia – The Legend has seen its glory days in the past, nice to see some rooms refurbished to current standard but more to be done. But you stay here to go to the beach, the nice sandy beach stretch for miles. And local attraction like Turtle Sanctuary just a short drive away and plenty of food eateries along the road.(comments taken from agoda.com)

Ahmed N. from Maldives – It was fun, this is the second time staying with the Legend group of hotels first was at port dickson. The rooms were clean and spacious, with large bathrooms and adjoining rooms available for families with kids. The breakfast was good with good variety, the dinner buffet was great with good choices. With multiple swimming pools and activities for kids and near to the beach this was a superb location and a great experience.(comments taken from agoda.com)

Soon M. from Malaysia – It was my second time stay at The Legend Resort. What to say? I would not come for 2nd time if it is not good. In overall, all are as expectations, room are big , clean and comfortable. View from the balcony are not that bad also. The most surprising me is when i woke up in the morning and getting out from the room, there is a newspaper hanging on my door, a wonderful and warm greeting from the early morning which I have not experience before. Good job to The Legend Resort.(comments taken from agoda.com)

Meng H. from Malaysia – My stay was good as the place is quiet and out of the other world. The beach is beautiful and clean. The wave is bit rough but it is very tranquility in the place. The place is good of relaxation. Although no much amenities in the hotel, you can enjoy the swimming pool. the hotel is nearby to the Chinese restaurants with reasonable price and rather good food. The hotel is good for brain storming session and place to have a piece of mind. Transportation is a problem, you need to prepare your own transport to move around in these areas.(comments taken from agoda.com)

Nur A. from Malaysia – It was worth the stay. The surrounding was comfortable and relaxing. My family enjoy the stay and scenery as well as the beach. It’s a pity I get to only stay for one night. Will come again if I have another opportunity.(comments taken from agoda.com)

Syamsul N. from Malaysia – Great. Beach was clean, although we can’t swim as it seems to be jellyfish season. The breakfast buffet still have a lot of room for improvement. I’d say the neighboring hotel (HV)has better breakfast offering. However still a good run for your money(comments taken from agoda.com)

Kent C from Malaysia – This was my third time staying in this resort. The stay was pleasant as I really enjoyed the surronding of the resort, though not extrememly good, but with the money i spent, i would say it was worth staying. I like the pool,big and nicely designed (cleanliness can be improved), the jacuzzi was ok and we tried it as well. This resort has its own private beach (overall ok) and we enjoyed walking on the beach watching sun-set. The staffs were very friendly but as usuall, (same issues I had for 3 times of my stays) the check-in and check-out process took abit longer than other hotel. The breakfast buffet was ok, nothing really impressed me, perhaps the selection of food can be in more variety. The facade of the resort and the inner look of our room looked a bit old, perhaps a refurbishment will do(comments taken from agoda.com)

Mohd P. from Australia – A good resort hotel maintaining its high standardswe have been visiting cherating periodically for the last 25 years. sadly, cherating is dying as a top tourist attraction on malaysia’s east coast, with very low occupancy levels. however, the legend resort has bravely maintained its high standards. our room was newly renovated to far more modern style. the beach front and its activities and the 3 swimming pools are as good as ever. all the hotel staff went out of their way to be helpful. they are all doing their best to keep cherating alive. all the tourism operators should get together with the state tourism ministry to completely renovate cherating as an international and local attraction.(comments taken from agoda.com)

Masnah A. from Malaysia – A Place for Family GetawayThe Legend Resort is not new to me. I have stayed many times (more than five)attending to workshops and meetings and family retreats. THe Legend Resort will always be my choice as for the main reason that my husband love to fly kite along the beach, my daughters and husbands love bringing their children by the beach and pool. Last but not least, the air is fresh and healthty. (comments taken from agoda.com)

Ismi M. from Malaysia – “Great Location and spacious room”We stayed at this hotel at least once a year. Our recent visit falls during school break where the hotel packed. Check-in slightly slow, but we were rewarded with a room with pool and sea view which is great. The swimming pools is big and beautiful beach. I noticed the hotel management had done some interior renovation of their room. Room is spacious and clean. Children game arcade is a plus so my kids have activities is the evening rather than just confined in the room. Will recommend this hotel to friends. (comments taken from Agoda.com)

Hazni Y. from Malaysia – “Awesome Hotel to stay”A one night stay at Deluxe Sea View was not enough. Such a perfect place with seaview for family vacation. Complete with various outdoor and indoor activities. However, I found that the pool is not that clean. The 5 feet pool is very clean though. In addition, the price for the ATV riding is very expensive. Maybe there should be a good discount for the guests.(comments taken from agoda.com)

Lai K. from Malaysia – “Spacious room and pool”This is our 2nd stay at this hotel. We like the pool because it is very spacious. Since it is connected to the beach, you can just sit back and enjoy the sea breeze. The room condition and cleanliness are always at the tip top condition. We will definitely stay there again. (comments taken from agoda.com)

Big room and swimming pool.The deluxe room is very spacious and clean. The swimming pool is big, hence we would always have space for ourselves. Since the hotel has a private beach, we were able to just sit on the beach and have afternoon naps with the breeze. Breakfast buffet range was good. The sauna and jacuzzi at the sports centre were great!(comments taken from agoda.com)

Nancy from Booking.com from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

After reading those posted reviews, my husband and I were abit hesitant about The Legend Cherating Resort. But other hotels were full in Cherating so we booked anyway.
We were very thankful that we were given a king size bed because of our 2 years old son so that he could sleep inbetween us.(We asked when we checked in) Twin beds is a no no because he would fall off the bed! The room was a new room as the bell boy told us it was newly renovated. All was new!! Even the TV was 32” LCD. The room is so different from the website and even the bath room was newly renovated. We could even sit at the balcony, and enjoy the breeze. Our room was facing the seaview. The aircon locating at the balcony didn’t really bother us much because it wasn’t noisy at all.

It was our custom and our way to thank the housekeeping whenever we stay overseas hotel, we usually leave the tip by the TV. They didn’t take the tip, so the next day, we placed the tip in the bath room, and they didn’t take it again. They didn’t take it the next 2 days. All in all we stay for 4 nights. Nevertheless, they did a good job in cleaning up the room.

Breakfast was ok, they did try their best to change the menu daily. We took dinner at the hotel twice, it was quite delicious especially the tom yam soup and the fried chicken wing.

The pool was not murky but there were leaves and bugs which I think is unavoidable because of the wind. Hotels and resorts by the beach usually have bugs flying around, so we are prepared. We spend time by the beach too, there weren’t any sandfilies around and our son enjoyed the stay very much. So did we.

However, part of the beach is dirty, as paper cups and rubbish were lying around. I guess those were left behind or carelessly thrown by those who attending team build seminars. When we were there, there were 2 groups attending team building seminars by the beach, and water/juices and finger food were provided. Personally, I think in order to have everyone and future guests to enjoy a nice clean beach, we have to do our part in keep the beach clean.

Internet access is only available in the lobby, so we are ok with that.
The hotel staff were friendly, they even recommend us good food and nice traditional coffee which we did. We drove to Chukai, which is about 15mins drive from the hotel. (I think the name of the coffee shop is Hai Peng. The coffee is good as I am a coffee lover.

Just outside the hotel, across the road, there is a few Malay restaurants. We took dinner once at this restaurant. (I can’t recall the name) but is just opposite Peninsula Seafood restaruant. It has a big screen TV, so you can’t miss it. The food is not bad. We tried to go to Peninula Seafood (no need to cross the road, just a 5 mins walk out from the hotel) twice but it was closed. Once it was their rest day, another we were too earlier. They are opened only 6pm.

Overall, we are happy during our stay and we are looking forward to come back to The Legend Cherating probably end of the year or next.

Once again, I would like to say a BIG Thank You to the hotel staff for making our trip a memorable one. 🙂

We were there during christmas 09. We had a good time there. My kids really enjoy the beach and also the pool. What make thing better was the weather…it was cloudy but it does not rain. Not to much sun and it was windy. Perfect..to tell the truth..those were the longest time I had ever spent on the beach..with the kids..plus the foods was excellent…
