The Breakers is the real deal—a stunning example of grand Floridian architecture built by Henry Flagler in 1896. And while the hotel still has the miles of stately gardens and gorgeous sea view it did over a century ago, there have been some welcome additions—four oceanfront pools, five whirlpools, and nine restaurants, from the Flagler Steakhouse to the seafood-centric Ocean Grill. Then there are two 18-hole golf courses, ten tennis courts, a spa (offering treatments for kids as well as adults), scuba diving and certification, and 11 designer shops on-site.
In the Area
The Palm Beach area is full of choices: shoppers and strollers have their pick between Clematis Street, the center of West Palm Beach which is full of boutiques, restaurants, and art galleries; or Worth Avenue, the heart of Palm Beach, with every designer store from Alex and Ani to Vilebrequin. Art lovers argue over whether to hit the Norton Museum, with its collection of contemporary and photography, or the Society of the Four Arts, which includes a botanical and sculpture garden, library, gallery, and an auditorium for concerts, lectures, and opera.
How to Get There
The hotel scene was just breath taking. The lobby was absolutely amazing very detailed art in the ceiling. The staff was really nice and friendly. I love their matching uniforms, it was very stylish. This hotel is definitely some place I would like to take my children one day. I felt welcomed here at the breakers and not one time did I feel uncomfortable. It was worth the drive from Miami to Palm Beach for a staycation.
My daughter, son and their father started their own tradition of an annual long weekend and my adult kids would rave about The Breakers, I had not been, until...my daughter got engaged and decided she and her fiancé wanted to forgo a huge wedding and instead wanted a small group of 25 immediate friends and family to join them at the breakers to celebrate their marriage. It was the most luxurious property I have ever stayed at in an “old school” tasteful way. Just pulling up on arrival was a treat...a long driveway flanked by palm trees only to be greeted by one of the many amazingly attentive valets and bellmen. Every single detail of the property, every interaction with staff, every possible thing we did or could possibly request, was so enjoyable. The service was supreme, the food top notch. We actually stayed the whole week and I am so glad we did! Yes, it is on the pricey side, we went in June so it was a little less on the room a, but included was a wonderful breakfast each day and all gratuities, tennis and exercise. And being right on the water, with the breeze, it was not too hot at all. Don’t wait for a wedding, go for yourself.
Holly cow talk about attention to detail the breakers has it down pack from the second you reach their gates from the valet, bellhop to the checkin desk. Feels like cheers everyone uses your name and is so welcoming. As for the hotel it’s amazing from the inside and out it obviously clear that they put a lot of care to the property. The property is majestic from fitness, pools and a amazing clean beach the breaker has it all. As for it’s restaurant the seafood bar is a must visit the grouper was cooked so tender that it falls apart in you mouth with a delicious garlic sauce. Overall we felt like royalty at the breakers and
