My wife and I arrived early for a 1 night stay and were able to check in right away, which seemed to stretch our stay. This resort is top notch in every area and worth the cost if you want to spoil yourself for a special occasion. We ate in the hotel for dinner at the small plate restaurant and... More

The grounds are gorgeous and extremely well maintained. The rooms are tiny but well decorated and fresh. The pools are lovely. The beach is one of the least attractive that I've seen. The food and service are nothing to rave about and the prices are ridiculous. Above all don't eat at the hotel if you like high-end food because you... More

We loved The Breakers! Although we traveled about two summers ago, we always talk about this amazing summer family vacation. The entire resort is so kid friendly. They have activities by the pool, lifeguards always on staff and go out of your way to make our little one feel special. The property itself is stunning! We can't wait until we... More

Liked: setting, building, facilities, location, and white glove service. Special mention deserve the Italian ceiling paintings and its tradition in excess of 100 years

You can never be too rich or too thin as one famous person once said. Well the Breakers while expensive is worth every penny. The best restaurants best beach Best view best golf course Do yourself a favor and go to the Breakers as soon as you can you'll never forget it.

We love visiting the beakers. It's a home away from home. The property is spectacular. It's a historic property with so much attention to detail. They are always updating the property and beautifying their grounds. The pools are wonderful, however, make sure to get chairs early. The rooms are extremely comfortable. Very classic beach feel with all the amenities of... More

A great hotel with a great history - one that can be enjoyed (not for much longer, presumably) via a free historic tour every Tuesday at 14:00 with the 97 year old Mr Ponce, who started work at the hotel back in the 50's. The hotel has huge grounds, to all sides, and the beach area comes with 4 pools.... More

Three room changes later we finally got a room without a bed that felt like it would not collapse, we settled in. Opulent hotel- really nothing like it in America. Circle room for breakfast is unbelievable- you just want to stay all morning. Exceptional service throughout the hotel. Beach is small width wise and do not expect Caribbean like sand.... More

The restaurant has a nice view. We asked for burgers with no blood and we were served with blood; the virgin piña colada for my kids were charged at normal fee 13$; the server took 20% gratuity, unacceptable! Do not go there they will get $ out of your pocket
