The Breakers has a style, look and reputation as being a very ornate, classy, up-scale resort. In many ways it delivers: the decor, the attention from staff and the sublime beach front. But for the exorbitant cost of a stay here (room, food, activities) you would think there would be a peaceful spot at one of the pools or a... More

but there is no way I could afford it. This is the second time my girlfriend and I have been to The Breakers and I can't believe they made it even better. I don't even know where to start. Everything about the place is absolutely beautiful, and it has a really cool history that you can hear about on one... More

This is probably one of the 3 best oceanfront resorts in the United States. I have been at this hotel at least 30 times and rarely not been 100% satisfied. The only thing they could improve on would be the seafood bar. Dated décor and not up to par with the rest of the property. The offsite restaurants' are great... More

A stay in the Breakers is always a treat but we sure miss the days before conventioneers overran hotel. We've stayed here many times through the years but it isn't the same even though the grounds, rooms and dining rooms are superb.

Let me put this into context. I've stayed at a number of five star resorts around the world. This hotel more than ever is room dependent. What do I mean...make sure you are clear what you are buying. I have visited prison cells bigger than some of the hotel rooms here. And make sure you understand where you are in... More

What an outstanding experience! This resort delivers on the luxury promise from check-in to check-out. The facility is outstanding with every aspect of the property extremely well groomed. How awe-inspiring to approach the twin towers inspired by the House of Medici in Venice. The hotel is a tribute to a bygone era. The hotel was built by craftsmen in the... More

This is a wonderful spot and it is a good to place in Palm Beach. That said you pay for the experience. If you are on an expense account or a Hedge Fund Mogul or just took your on line delivery company public it might be worth it but there are better spots if you are paying for it with... More

In early October, we held our annual law firm retreat at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida. It was outstanding in every respect: the rooms are fabulous (ocean views worth the upcharge); the restaurants exceptional; golf, pool and sporting activities excellent; and the staff is incredibly helpful. If there is a better resort in the country, please tell me about... More

Went into the Breakers this afternoon for lunch. My friend took me here knowing fully well what to expect. Never having been myself, just upon turning into the driveway, I was in awe of the hotel. Amazing site to see. As we proceeded down the driveway it just got better and better. After parking on the grounds We went into... More

This past weekend was our fourth visit to this magnificent property and finally I have the opportunity to post a bit about their excellence. Two of our prior visits were for corporate escapes and the hotel staff does not disappoint. Our last two visits have been for pleasure mixed with business and relaxation, and again, this hotel knows how to... More
