I just arrived back at work after a long weekend at the Breakers. I'm used to 3 stars or less. My husband and I are lower middle income and really had to stretch to fit this into our budget, but it was absolutely, positively worth EVERY PENNY!! I'm normally a go-go-go kind of traveler, but this hotel just beckons you to slow down and take it easy. I spent hours on the pool deck listening to the ocean waves. We were flabbergasted to receive an upgraded room at check-in as we were celebrating our first Anniversary. We had an Ocean View room. The beautiful blue-green water captured my eyes the second the room door was opened. The staff are ridiculously obliging. They seem to instinctively know what you are going to ask before you ask it. They always smile and say hello in the halls. The food is top notch. We really enjoyed the Seafood Bar and the Flagler steakhouse. We can't wait to try Echo. I have opened a special savings account to start saving for my next trip because I will be back. This country bug is hooked for life!
