My son treated my husband and myself to an afternoon at The Breakers. The reservation was made a few weeks in advance. The grounds of the resort are well manicured, the hotel is absolutely gorgeous. We did a walking indoor tour which revealed multiple well decorated dining and sitting areas. Our brunch reservation started promptly at the scheduled time. Don't let the word brunch fool you. The food selections were impressive. There was the option to of course have the typical breakfast items of bacon and eggs, but why start there when you can begin with caviar? The mini waffles had the best flavor that I've ever tasted. The number of dessert selections were too numerous to count. Our mimosa and beverage glasses were never empty. We end our brunch with a personal serenade by a talented harpist! This was absolutely a pace - yourself three hour reservation. We topped it off by walking the paths that led to a beautiful view of the ocean. There is a spa on site which looked very inviting but we didn't have the opportunity to take advantage of it. This was definitely a special experience for us and it is well worth repeating on another visit!!!
Everything about The Breakers was great. My wife and I got massages at the spa and they were outstanding. Breakfast at the beach club was great every day. The setting with the pools and the beach was very relaxing. Service every where you went could not have been better. There is nothing we would have changed about the trip?
Although legendary, I had never seen the Breakers hotel in Palm Beach, Florida. This time our aim was to lunch in the Seafood bar which sits exactly alongside the amazing view of the Atlantic ocean. Nothing about the restaurant itself screams out to be noticed, except for the bar's aquarium lit up with an aquarium integrated. But the food is very good and the service lives up to the hotel's reputation. The coconut shrimp was a novelty and I'll remember it although I preferred the Blue Point oysters by a nautical mile. That was the starter. Then we as all had salads with extra protein in the form of shrimp of chicken or fish. The salad dressings were plenty varied and it was well washed down with copious amounts of Miraval rosé. After that, the visit through the Breakers served as substitute for the dessert we never had, and jaws were dropped in awe. Bravo! Busy valet parking but quick.
this restaurant is fantastic! We went with my family and the food is delicious the view is fantastic and the attention idem When going to the restaurant you can walk and see the hotel which is a real gem and you can also walk along the beach 10 of 10
The Breakers is world renowned and for a very good reason. Although an older hotel, it is still luxurious, from the shops of high end goods, to the fine china that the food is served with. You will know you are surrounded by luxury.
The Breakers is a magnificent and historic hotel that draws a lot of people. If you are looking for a small quiet hotel and experience, not here. This is a large hotel and grounds that hosts many events, weddings, conferences and such. The hotel itself is amazing and at least worth going to see and have a drink or dinner. The decor takes you back to a time in history where everything was so grand. We like staying here because we can play tennis, golf and use the pool all at one place. This does come with a price and it is not inexpensive but you are worth it! If you book with a Platinum American Express card you get a free breakfast buffet each morning, $100 resort credit, possible early check in and late check out and just maybe an upgrade if available. Daily valet parking is $30. Be organized when you show up and know what to take out of your car because it can be really busy in front with lots of people and cars. The staff is great and very helpful. You will need photo ID with you just about all the time. Rental bikes were fun to use. Cigar friendly in certain areas. A couple things that I did notice...coffee cup handles are small and hard to hold with large hands. Toilet paper was not quite "robust" enough. Public spaces need more attention to clean up like towels left on benches outside pool areas, trash cans and cigarette ash trays were overflowing with trash. With such nice views it was sad that the windows were so dirty on the outside but at a seaside resort it must be tough to keep them clean. Bathroom exhaust fan did not work and bathroom door would not stay open. Rooms are small but very nice. Somehow they lost our golf tee times made in advance and the valet did not take our golf clubs out of the car and send to the golf shop, as requested. I will be back again soon hopefully!
There are a few things an eager vacationer should know about the legendary Breakers Palm Beach to ensure a stay memorable. The first is that the oceanfront resort dates back to the late-1890s and was founded by American industrialists Henry M. Flagler. The second is that the six-story property gushes with European influence with its intricate Italian painted ceiling and grand public architectural flair – an environment which it term “unapologetic luxury.” The third, which you must know to keep your $700 per night binge from becoming a colossal money-squandering bust is that the hotel has 3 full-priced rooms in the North Tower, which directly abut a neatly hidden corridor containing 4 heavily-used service elevators. These elevators are used by staff at all hours of the day and night. Avoid at all costs rooms 2305, 4205 and 5205, which the hotel receptionist hand out to unsuspecting guests without warning. Overnighting in these “partial ocean view” rooms will forever compromise The Breakers experience for you. It will transform “A Picture Perfect Escape” into a frustrating, sleepless wasted experience.
Aside from the beauty of the hotel everywhere and the gorgeous landscaping and flower arrangements in the lobby, the hotel is stunning to look at everywhere and the rooms re well appointed and everything about this place screams poshness. But I was there because of a conference and thus was not able to take part in their amenities. Their entire catering staff can not be beat. The food is sumptuous,, but I needed special menus. And they accommodated me and my food was delicious. Each waiter and waitress treated me like a queen. They do this for everyone.
Beautiful hotel and restaurant. The service was exceptional. Location uneqaled on the east coast. The brunch was over the top. Even if you don't want to spend the night, do brunch here. It is expensive, no doubt, but I thought it was worth it.
Visited for conference purpose. Great facility for business and vacation. Benches along swimming pool as well as on the beach are the place you want to stay forever! Complementary shuttle bus runs within the island and it can take you out to restaurants in case you want to try other choices than restaurants within.
