The Breakers Palm Beach

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our family loved the hotel’s decoration, services, the variety of the swimming pools, the convenience of the kids camp, the abundant shopping activities available!! And the new year eve ball was fantastic with the performance, the food and the ambiance!

Atmosphere = A, Quality of Food = C, Caliber of Service = C. Atmosphere would've rated A+ had there been a view of the sea. The tea consisted of several choices of tea in individual pots, one scone per guest, a few miniscule tea sandwiches and a number of very pedestrian chocolates tasting much the same. Our waitress forgot to bring butter for the scones and sugar for the tea. There is a 20% gratuity added to your bill. You decide.

We have stayed at this resort many times over multiple years and have unfortunately experienced a decline in customer service likely due to under-staffing. More specifically, we experienced long check-in lines with only one person behind the check in desk, long waits to reach room-service or concierge, rooms cleaned at inconvenient times late in the day, etc. Recently, we were told that a room was available and that we could have early check-in once this room or a better room was cleaned. We waited hours in the lobby only to find out later that the room was not even available at the guaranteed check in time of 4:00pm. We were frustrated with the wasted afternoon only to be told by R. Higley, the manager, that the hotel only represented that it would make an "effort." it was under no obligation to deliver a room. In addition, we were offered a "resort credit" because the room was not available at 4:00pm which hardly made up for the wasted afternoon. In expressing our frustration to the manager and decision to leave, we were only reminded of their contractual rights to charge for the stay. The hotel staff is professional but not conducive to a relaxing and inviting customer friendly experience.

$30 valet parking becomes free if you validate at bar/lounge entrance. Still a crowded place but has lost its sheen. Could use some renovation to make it come alive again. There with lovely Xmas trees and lights.

I was shocked at the over priced stay at The Breakers. The staff was very pleasant however the prices were insane. I invited two buisness guests for lunch and the hotel wanted to charge each of my guests $50.00 to each at the beach club(that’s not including the lunch). The Breakers should take lessons and learn from the Beverly Hills Hotel. I will not be returning to the Breakers anytime soon.

I expect a five-star resort to have a hefty price tag on most services and this resort does live up to that 5 star price ..but it is with world-class service. We went for breakfast at Circles recently. If you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on meals you can eat at Circles restaurant for breakfast or for lunch at reasonable cost. Sitting where Henry Flagler sat in luxury with huge Tiffany’s chandelier and skylights overhead and beautiful views of Atlantic Ocean is a historic experience! Our party had the breakfast buffet with carved roast beef and custom Omelettes . Yes it is 5 star resort with embossed butter, fresh juice, and crispy bacon. Best place for photo or selfie with fountain is just out main entrance. Also if you valet park( yes $36) get your ticket validated to waive fee if you eat meal at restaurant. Note There is no general parking or free parking at the breakers. Tip- if you’re not staying at the hotel and went to see the hotel or eat at the restaurants you can park nearby in downtown shopping area and take Uber to resort or from downtown area short walk to the Flagler steakhouse and take the free shuttle that runs all day over to the Breakers!

You have to stay here, just once. If you can't stay at least you owe it to yourself to go for a visit. It is stunningly beautiful from the outside and driving up the main drive you will be in awe of the majesty and presence of this historic property. Inside it will take your breath away. Have a drink in their wonderful bar or a coffee in the lobby. You could walk around for hours and take it all in. The staff is wonderful - friendly, helpful and professional. The rooms are clean and well appointed. Beds are comfortable and rooms are quiet. Can't say enough wonderful things about this place....

I stayed with family and co-workers the weekend of Dec. 15th. We were there for some holiday party festivities. While those festivies (On site) were incredible, I would like to just speak for the Breakers hotel. This is on of the most high end resorts in the country and it is NOT owned by any chain. The decor and service is impeccable. I do believe everyone should read up on the history of this hotel and stay here at least once in their lifetime. The ambiance was amazing. Pools and beach were gorgeous. Service incredible. Food and drinks were so good. Amazing bed as well. I hope I am lucky enough to go back some day.

There's something... magnificent about The Breakers. The style, the elegance, the art, the architecture and amenities combine to make this a destination hotel. Alas, as such, from the vantage point of being a guest, so many tourists come by to simply see and walk around the hotel that the intimacy in public rooms that could otherwise be had is precluded. That being said, The Breakers is a gem. I highly recommend a drink {or coffee} at the seaside bar. The bar itself is actually a living aquarium - seriously! The Breakers is on a par with such Grand Hotels as Chateau Frontenac: Quebec City; The Empress" Victoria Island, British Columbia; The Grand Hotel: Mackinac Island: Michigan; Chateau Lake Louise: Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada; The Grand Hotel Timeo: Taormina, Sicily, Italy; Hotel Del Coronado: San Diego;, California; The Montreux Palace Hotel: Monrteux, Switzerland; Raffles Hotel: Singapore; et al. As such, perhaps the best time to truly enjoy this establishment is off-season. Additionally, since the goings on at Mar a lago down the road a piece have been as / what they are, numerous organizations have cancelled functions there and re-booked them to The Breakers. Therefore, The Breakers is even more than usual to have fairly large functions. Finally, there's no 'self-parking' at The Breakers, it's valet only and non-staying guests to / at The Breakers will pay $30 to park. The hotel does, however, offer to validate your parking if you spend a certain level at the hotel.

The Breakers is a stunning hotel. The driveway entrance is so grand and impressive. Inside the hotel the design and interior is amazing! I could spend hours walking around and not get bored. This hotel is a must visit if you are in the area even if it’s only for the day.
