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
This property is highly overrated...While the food is above average, the cost of everything here is exorbitant. As an example; I had a (3) shrimp cocktail with a diet coke, and my bill was almost $40.
The Staff is very friendly and accommodating...However, they are getting a guaranteed 20% on every tab because it is automatically included.
I was here on business, but I would never come here personally.
Visited the Breakers in Palm Beach for my anniversary in September. The hotel is amazing, it is very historical as it was first built in the 1800’s. From Check in to Check our the service was incredible. My rom was upgraded and I was accommodated in a corner ocean front room. My husband and I had breakfast and lunch on property and it was delicious! Great mini staycation.
I have been to the Breakers for over 10 years running an event there, but this was the first time I ever stayed there. Was there for one night on the Flagler club floor and you can't find better service anywhere else. The rooms were not big but very plush and comfortable. If you ever get the chance to stay at the Breakers don't miss the opportunity a special treat!
