Just came back from a business trip to The Breakers in Palm Beach. I stayed an extra night on my own dime to enjoy the lovely hotel with my husband and I was so glad I did. From the minute you enter this hotel you are in another world, it's like walking back in time to a more gracious lovely... More

Gorgeous breakfast room with a domed painted ceiling. Beautiful vaulted, painted ceilings in grand main floor. Our room as spotless, well supplied, large, and very comfortable. Food, service, and amenities were good. Four nice pools, spa, gym., beach. Close to upscale shopping and restaurants.

Scanning the reviews on this property, I wonder if what tends to happen is that people are so impressed by the mythical Breakers that when things go awry, they are reluctant to write about it........In my instance, this myth dissolved when I entered my room and saw that the "peaceful location with the beautiful view" that I was sure to...

We visited the Breakers in May for a girls getaway trip. It was wonderful as usual. We had beautiful weather for the entire weekend. The only downside was a huge conference was taking place the same weekend and also several weddings, so it was crowded and noisy at times. It can also be an inconvenience when they are setting up...

It's a lovely grand dame of hotels, so I am reluctant to write a negative review. However, three problems were just too noticeable not to metion. 1.the air system in our room would go up to 88 degrees if the thermostat was turned up just by one degree (from 68 to 69F). Maintenance reset it to 68 in the afternoon.... More

Cheap? No. But worth every penny. Best, most relaxing family vacaition ever. Our 9 yr old and 4 yr old were thoroughly entertained by the FREE day camps and excited to run into friends they met at the hotel and during meals (which were also FREE for kids!) Life guards at all the pools AND the beach provided a second... More

My husband and I took the kids for our family vacation. Our children are ages 1,12,and 18 and they all enjoyed themselves. The food is amazing. Try the Sunday Brunch it is well worth it. The staff was very friendly and helpful with the exception of one employee in the signature shop. The grounds are really beautiful. Our room was... More

We have a family of 4 young children below the ages of 8. This place is fantastic for children and there are numerous events which cater to young children. We even took advantage of the babysitting services so that my wife and I could enjoy some adult time at the bar. The grounds are pristine. The pools and beach add... More
