This was a great stay for us. Loved the room, the pool, and the staff was amazing. I travel a ton, every year, business and pleasure, I would put this resort in my top 5 of all time. Will be back in 2013.....

recently stayed at the Breakers for the 7th time! We stayed on the concierge floor and enjoyed it.I did feel the rooms seemed smaller than others but perhaps that was because we had twin beds. Chris and Tiffany went above and beyond(Chris let my daughter borrow a computer to send an urgent email)
I had been concerned we would be farther from the pools but the floor is smaller than I expected which meant the actual lounge was not crowded- a pleasant surprise. Of course we were also staying prior to the start of the Christmas season.

Room Tip: while we loved the concierge level I did feel the rooms were smaller, lower ceilings perhaps?

The Breakers has everything anyone would want for a wonderful vacation; beach, sun, golf, tennis. Lots to do and see in Palm Beach -- but watch out for your wallet on Worth Ave! Nicely redone rooms and the new restaurant and beach club is fantastic. It is a large property so be prepared for lots of families, kids and groups. All great for us.

The location of the Breakers was convenient (walking distance to off-property restaurants and an easy 15 minutes to the airport). I found the room small, not very cozy and was disappointed that it did not have a balcony - very few of the rooms did. The pillows were horrible. The food at the restaurants did not warrant the high prices, but the service was excellent. Everybody was very accommodating. If you have a late flight, they have great facilities with everything you need to shower, etc. It was a nice hotel and I enjoyed myself, but it fell short of total luxury. I would only stay there again if the price was right. If you are looking for a top-notch Florida 5 star hotel, stay at the Ritz in Naples.

A gracious, old-world hotel on a beautiful stretch of beach, and with great restaurants, Breakers falls down only on its music policy which seems designed to drive you crazy, or to get you to buy and then wear ear defenders (which none of the fancy on-site boutiques sell).
You'll eat your breakfast oatmeal and muffins to the sound of vocalised jazz standards. Then as you walk from the hotel and through the pool and bar areas, it begins to feel like you're spinning through the stations on an American radio; we go from chill out (lap pool) to Latino (main pool) to adult-orientated rock (third pool), with the odd power ballad and blast of classical from the bars and boutiques along the way. The only place to get some quiet is on the beach, where the waves and wind actually mange to drown out Celine Dion, Ricky Martin, The Eagles etc., or oddly, the gym, It's incredibly oppressive and also quite mystifying. Hotel managers always say that music creates an 'atmosphere', but surely the marvellous interiors and wonderful setting gives Breakers all the atmosphere it needs?
Excellent steak at Flaglers, and the Japanese/Pac-Rim restaurant also very good. Breakfast bakery tasted a bit 'brought-in'. The new bar looks (and must have cost) a million $.

From the minute you walk in you know that you are in a special place. There is a hostess in the lobby to greet you and help you check in. The expansive entry hallway has a luxurious old world feel, and down each of the hallways are stewards armed with a smile and the time to chat or show you the way to your next destination. Outside their is a beautiful beach surrounded by 4 pools and staffed to make your stay in the sun as relaxing as possible.
Inside their are 4 restaurants that give you such a wide array of choices that you need go nowhere else. My favorite was The Ocean, where the bar was an aquarium.
To sum up my experience, I felt that The Breakers gave me the pampered luxury of a bygone era. The sort of treatment the Rockefellers or Vanderbilts might have enjoyed.

As you cross the bridge into Palm Beach to your arrival at The Breakers ,you immediately are surrounded by the lush beauty of this tropical resort!Arriving at the entrance and to check -in very professional .Graciously greeted at front desk and checked in.
Beautiful room with spacious bath and shower area ,ask for separate tub and bath and upgrade to a deluxe if possible .American Express Platinum allows for early checkin and late checkout at 4:00 with a room upgrade.
Beautiful lobby ,and you really need to take the time to explore all areas of this beautiful resort ,before you head to the pool .Great coffee shop and shopping area ,expensive but definitely worth taking the time to browse and shop.
The pool area is just outstanding ,the backdrop of the ocean a beautiful turquoise blue with white sand,4 pools one a lap pool with cabanas and fabulous outdoor eating area ,our breakfast was superb,looking out at the ocean !
The spa was beautiful ,one of the best I have visited ,very tranquil and relaxing ,the facialist ,Margo was outstanding ,what a treat!
Room service was great prompt and food delicious.,the Seafood Bar looking out at the ocean ,what a view ,drinks great but very expensive ,bartenders friendly and work hard to please.
I have already rebooked for the holidays we had such a splendid time!

Room Tip: Up grade if you can from the standard
