The Breakers is a gorgeous Palm Beach landmark consisting of a hotel, spa, and several dining venues. This version was built in the 1920's, and the 200-foot-long main lobby and the high-arched ceiling decorated with paintings are only a few of the many stunning architectural details. Don't miss the banquet rooms and courtyard garden, not to mention the jaw-dropping wine... More

The Breakers has been the "go to place" in Palm Beach for almost 100 years. The Rich, The Upper Middle Class and business executives floc here for relief fro the everyday world that most of us live in. Many important business functions, weddings, and family functions are held here as their conference facilities are quite legendary. The reason that they... More

Service in general on the lower end of so-so (except HMF bar was great!! Impressed by their bartenders!) rooms nice and very well maintained, food not great. Good gym. A good place to stay on business, wouldn't recommend it for a romantic weekend or getaway. Food needs upgrade and staff really needs to undergo training befitting a higher end resort,... More

The reason this resort is world renowned is because they do everything right. The staff is friendly, helpful and plentiful. The HSF restaurant and Flagler Steakhouse are wonderful. The ribeye steak we had at Flagler was memorable. The beach and pools were perfect. The tennis club was friendly, well organized and had good instruction. The room was well appointed and... More

We stayed here last year as a family vacation and I have attended a few conferences there. Pros: Lovely architecture, great service from everyone, convenient to downtown. For families with children, it's nice to be able to walk (or bike) in the town and not have to pack everyone into the car. Cons: The decor is dated and I feel... More

The Breakers is a gorgeous Palm Beach landmark, hotel, spa, and dining experience. Our favorite is the famous us day brunch in the circle dining room, which is an event not to be missed. If all you can eat lobster, shrimp, sushi, crab, rack of lamb, fresh crepes, caviar, champagne, mimosas, and bloody Mary's don't pique your interest, perhaps the... More

If you'd like a spectacular manicure at a spectacular price ($$$$) try The Breakers Spa. Went there for a day that started at the spa for said manicure, then lunch by the pool, then pool for the rest of the day. Staff is wonderful, always but always smiling and helpful. Beyond the pale property and service. You just can't stop... More

The Breakers, in over stuffed, uber wealthy Palm Beach, Florida is an architectural gem, both inside and out. Situated right on the beach, you can enjoy the crashing of the waves. This hotel is old school luxury. If you want something modern, cool or hip, this is not the hotel for you. The hotel is also huge, with lots of... More

We checked into a suite that cost $1,200 a night. On top of that we paid $300 a day for a private Bungalow by the pool. The spa was also pricey. But, the staff pamper you in every way possible. The atmosphere is snobby but in a good way. Only the finest of everything at this magnificent resort.

I am finishing up my first stay here at the Breakers, and I had high expectations. I came away distinctly underwhelmed. The location is indeed ideal, and the staff is pleasant enough. But the prices for all food and services are quite outrageous (example: coffee for two in the room is $15 plus a service fee). The rooms are nice... More
