One of America’s most iconic resorts, The Breakers is an Italian Renaissance-style hotel situated on 140 acres of oceanfront property on the island of Palm Beach, Florida. Founded in 1896 by magnate Henry M. Flagler, and still in the hands of his heirs today, this legendary destination continues to thrive independent of chain affiliation. Each year, an investment averaging $25 million in capital improvements and ongoing revitalization, carefully balances preservation & modernization.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and recognized as a AAA Five Diamond property, The Breakers has also earned numerous accolades for its social impact on the environment, community and team member well-being.
Guest rooms total 538, which include 68 suites (two Imperial Suites and four Royal Poinciana Suites). Each room offers captivating views of the Atlantic or resort grounds, décor inspired by Palm Beach’s luxury lifestyle and complimentary Wi-Fi. Childproofing and parental equipment are available for guest rooms upon request.
An intimate, exceptionally customized experience, The Breakers’ elegant Flagler Club is an exclusive, 25-room boutique hotel nestled atop the resort. Private access leads to beautifully-appointed accommodations, top-of-the-line amenities inclusive of a Club Lounge and panoramic rooftop Terrace, as well as personalized service from pre-arrival to departure.
Ten restaurants range from casual beachfront to stylishly sophisticated, while a world-class private beach club hosts four pools, six whirlpool spas, 25 poolside bungalows and a variety of on-site watersports. In addition, there are two 18-hole golf courses, 10 Har-Tru tennis courts, a world-class indoor/outdoor spa, an oceanfront fitness center, 13 signature boutiques, Via Flagler by The Breakers - an al fresco shopping plaza and a Family Entertainment Center. There is also never a resort fee.
Look. We’ve paid $3200 + fees + taxes per night for this hotel. I don’t want to sound snobby but when you pay as much you expect better. Room was nice but nothing really special, windows don’t really open so you can’t get that ocean breeze, the sheets were old and not well kept (see photo), doors of the bathroom were kinda destroyed (see photo) and shaving mirror was broken (see photo)… again i am not snobby but when you pay so much you expect much better… at least in Europe i am not sure about the USA… kinda disappointing
Oceanfront suite with daily service including turndown. Fridge stocked with sparkling and flat water. Luxe linens. Toiletries way above par. So many trips here and it feels like home. The fitness center is outstanding and overlooks the Atlantic. The only critique of the Breakers is that yoga is not offered and it used to be if memory serves? Breakfast is served in the Circle dining room or on the beach - which we choose after working out. Staff has been there for many years, and the food is consistent especially for buffet. There are many spots around the property to find solitude - in the early mornings I find coffee in the small market and sit near the front lawn for reading and writing. Restaurants on property - all good. There is a shuttle every 5 minutes to off property shopping/restaurants, as well Tesla house cars that are generally available. Finding a spot at the adult pool can be challenging but once found is above adequate. Palm trees shade areas - balancing between sun and shade throughout the day. This stately property continues to thrive and excel - all through Covid even - and is only a short ride from PBI airport terminals.…
You have to experience the Seafood Bar. I won't give it away. Yes, everything is over-priced, but you get great service and great drinks. My wife had her best passion fruit dessert ever! Oysters $8 a piece is crazy too.
We visited just before Xmas and the resort was decorated BEAUTIFULLY. It was magical. The Resort grounds are absolutely beautiful and there are so many gathering areas in which to sit and enjoy. Fantastic shops and restaurants. A place to see and be seen. Bring your nicest clothes and accessories!!
My wife have been at the Breakers for the last week We booked a suite in the Flagler Club, a small hotel within the larger hotel, on the 6th and 7th floors. While the suite is smaller than we prefer, the service both at the Flagler Club as well as the entire hotel has been superb. The Team in the ‘Flagler Club have been very accommodating especially organizing complimentary car service to the various restaurants we have eaten at. The complimentary food and liquor offerings during the day have been excellent. While the suite is somewhat small , the outside lounge area and the outdoor deck allows for more space. We ate at the Seafood Bar one night and it was excellent and drinks at HMF are always a fun night. Breakfast at the Pool restaurant is a wonderful Buffett (or a la cart) with great service. We generally try to get to Florida for a week each February and the Breakers continues to be an outstanding place to stay.…
This is a mixed review. The bedding is a positive standout (it is exceptional), and rooms are recently refurbished and with very modern amenities. The service is below standard of a five star hotel on all fronts (waiting in line to check-in, single-day housekeeping, general unresponsiveness to repeated requests). Some of the amenities (gym, for example) are excessively crowded, perhaps a consequences of a very large hotel (500+ rooms?) plus shared amenities with a club). Boutique hotel this is not. Lots of character and attention to detail throughout (real candles grace the lobby in the evening, very good (but way-too-large) chocolates await at turn-down service). No coffee maker in the room or provided at reception, and coffee at News & Gourmet is average (as is the overall food quality). The security around the compound is a bit off putting. The beach is excellent by Florida standards, but average in comparison to true world-class beaches. In short, very classic, good for meetings, accessible location, and will stay again if hosted. BUT, this is NOT a destination property by any means. Not worth the price.…
Some rooms are redone with an Art Deco spin. Of course there are two golf courses, tennis club, beach, pools…what do you really want? Actually, the best thing is the transparent bar with fish, eels, crustaceans swimming in the bar under your drink!!!!
this place is legendary and as such it is very well run and very expensive. but as the saying goes you get what you pay for. beach is great hotel rooms are period designed . food is expensive as you would expect
I attended an annual surgical meeting at The Breakers, Dec 3 thru 7. First, The Breakers knows how to hold a meeting. The meeting room, ancillary rooms, banquet facilities and staff were top notch. Best part was being able to secure adjoining rooms for my granddaughter and daughter who took full advantage of the larger hotel facilities. In addition to The Breakers’ tradition of service excellence, it turns out it is kid friendly. My 4 year old granddaughter had a ball exploring the building and grounds with her “passport” and taking full advantage (with her Mom and Grandmother) of the children’s play area, Beach and pool. My family had a great time. The food was excellent and the room was excellent with outstanding service. Can’t wait to head back.
This review is long overdue since my visit was April 2022.
