The Breakers Palm Beach5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I feel compelled to write this review after my recent experience at the brunch at The Breakers. Knowing the ridiculous pruce for brunch. I had high expectations. Granted the food was very good, but the experience was nothing special. The service was terrible. In fact, they cleared our table of all plates, tablecloth, glasses and silverware when we went back to the buffet for dessert! The check was still on the table! The first staff member sent me to the totally wrong side of the property when I asked where the brunch was. While The Breakers is a magnificent building, it is filled with tourists. Not the posh atmosphere one would expect to find. There are many outstanding restaurants in Palm Beach. This is not one of them.
This is about the most near perfect place there can be. When I read the previous reviews before arriving, I noticed that so many people come back every year. Now, I can see why. I will say up front that if money is an issue and you care about what things cost, then stop reading the review now and go elsewhere. Everything costs a small fortune here so it is not for those on a budget. As said, don't get annoyed, this place will not be for you. Another reviewer wrote that if you are budget conscious then this place is like a death by a thousand cuts LOL! Ok, now that I got that out of the way, this place is nearly perfect. The room was very nice and we were lucky to have a small upgrade since the room wasn't ready until mid afternoon. Everything here is elegant. We had the buffet breakfasts (the only thing included) every day and at both places they were fantastic. We hung out at 3 different pools, two of which were adult only. If I were to nit pick and say what could have been better to make it perfect, sure the heated pools could have been warmer and we didn't have dinner at the seafood bar restaurant because they don't take reservations, even for guests. We ate lunch there once and it was top notch as was Flaglers Steak where we ate at twice. We will be back but will do so a month earlier since the prices go up after November 1st. Also of note, they have golf on premises and another course 20 minutes away which they will shuttle you to. The golf off premises is a much tougher course for those of you that aren't top golfers, be ready.
I stayed at this hotel last year and ended up with a laceration on the bridge of my nose, from a accident that happened in my hotel room. After being treated by a EMS worker, I traveled back home to New York to receive proper medical attention. . After I got back to New York, a hotel manager from the Breakers called me to ask if they could do anything for me, i was being treated by my doctor and still on the mend, so I told them I would get back to them. If I ran into any complications. I never heard back from the hotel after that phone call. So a year Later, I traveled back to the Hotel and I informed the manager that I was back and if they wanted to do anything for me, it would be nice. The Manager on duty, who’s name is Brandon, quickly dismissed me and said my accident didn’t warrant anything from the hotel in terms of compensation. I was actually shocked to hear him say that. I reminded him that a year ago I was injured on the hotel property and his hotel reached out to me and asked me if they can do anything for me. He said he didn’t care. I was blown away that he actually said that. Outside of the phone calll from a year ago. I was never even sent a get well card to ask how I was doing. Being back at the hotel, and informing them of my stay, gave them an opportunity to reach out to me and do something nice and genuine, which they did not. The hotel manager showed no customer service skills. I do not think I will ever go back to the Breakers hotel, I can certainly spend my money somewhere else, where I feel valued.

Yes Folks, its the Breakers..... A very distinguished property with all the trimmings and history here in Palm Beach Florida. I have ventured into this hotel for some 30 years now all mostly at Holiday time. We always go to church around the corner at Bethesda By the Sea every Christmas Eve. I'll have to say that I always enjoy their beautiful entrance to the property. Christmas is amazing here as we meet Santa Claus on his entrance every year with delicious cookies and milk. Dining on Christmas Eve in the Breakers is so extra special, especially at HMF with their amazing apps and entrees. It feels like its definitely Christmas Eve here. If your are looking for seafood then the seafood bar is for you. Incredible fresh seafood with a lovely lighted bar area. After all this is Palm Beach isn't it? The pools, the beach, the cabanas, the spa..... I could go on forever!!! This is definitely the way to go in Palm Beach!! Explore your room options if you are staying here too to be sure you book the room that can accommodate your family. Enjoy your stay at the Breakers. Every moment is an occasion here. These memories will last forever.... Trust me
When we booked our four night stay at The Breakers - we were not sure what to expect. The website states "Once you stay, you'll understand." We now understand! The rooms are clean, the building is remarkable, the pool areas are great, but the service is out of this world! I run a service business and I'm a tough critic of customer service. Very few businesses meet my standards, and The Breakers shattered that standard! Well done to every one who works at The Breakers.
We’ve travelled the world and this is — by far — the fanciest, most beautiful, well run, and opulent resort we’ve been to, with impeccable service only other organizations would dream of. Service is spot on, every time, without exception, perfect. Still owned by the descendants of Henry Flagler, one of the co-founders of Standard Oil and the man who Brought the railroad from New York to key west, this resort is a flagship of the family. You honestly would have expected to see Marilyn Monroe or the like here. Don’t go with a budget conscious mind. Otherwise you will not enjoy yourself and the money will be death by a thousand cuts. Go with the mindset — either you can afford it and no problem, or this is a splurge. The architecture is impeccable, the food and bars are six star, and service is like none other. FYI drinks are 10-20 dollars. Lunch for 2 can be $175. But they include tip with everything. We had a dinner on the "ocean lawn" in a group that was worthy out of a movie.
The Breakers is a beautiful resort that is worth checking out, if you can afford it. It's not cheap: parking was $30/day, drinks in the beautiful Seafood Bar are $20+, dinner in the steakhouse was $500 for 4 people, and room service breakfast was $50. For a short visit, it's worth it though as the entire resort is meticulously maintained and overwhelmingly luxurious with no detail left behind.
We spent the weekend here and enjoyed most everything Great pool, lounges, basketball court, bars, restaurants, shops- only thing lacking is beach access- which is not available due to recent storms Valet parking easy & quick What a beautiful property!
I live in Palm Beach, but decided to take my little girl for a mommy/daughter week at the Breakers and we felt like princesses. Everything was perfect .... the room, the restaurants, the pool areas, the service. The Breakers attracts visitors from across the world, and with one visit you will understand why. Even as a native Palm Beacher, I still go as often as I can, even if it is just for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a spa treatment.
We didn't stay at the hotel, but went for a visit and it was quite nice. Valet is expensive ($30), but if you spend the same amount or more inside the hotel, it's complimentary. The architecture and decoration are impressive and there are a few stores, nothing much. The cafe doesn't offer many options and the hotel store is expensive.
