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
I am so impressed with the the staff at The Breakers. Every employee I encountered from the check in desk to pool attendants were friendly and so helpful. We were given an upgraded room on arrival. When a family emergency occurred and our plans had to change they were very understanding and waived their charges on a spa appointment cancelled on the day of the scheduled service. The spa was one of the most beautiful and relaxing that I have visited and my esthetician ( Lauren) gave me the best facial I have ever had. We will be returning, hopefully without any emergencies to shorten our trip
My wife and I had dinner at The Italian Restaurant locates at the Breakers Resort in Palm Beach, Fl. The staff was superb in their attentiveness and attention to detail. The food was spectacular! I recommend the calamari appetizer and the tortellini as an entree. The decor was clean and inviting. The food was on the expensive side but you get what you pay for!
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.
