Extraordinary. 5 Stars all the way around. For both business & pleasure. This place has it all. As soon as you walk into The Lobby you will be awed. Kind of place you would say "I could easily live here" Dr Ron. Boca Raton & Jupiter, Fla.

Room Tip: Simple. The more you pay. The better the accommodation. However, nothing is less than great.

This hotel has fantastic service. Every meal item was delicious. The pool areas are also very nice. The hotel decor is very classy, it feels palacial. The rooms are clean, modern and well maintained. The floors are marble. There is a quaint outdoor garden with water fountain adjacent to the coffee shop, a great place to relax.

Ive always heard of the Breakers and was curious why it had always been featured in the movies and why the Rich and famous stayed here.
Just pulling up to the property I knew this was going to be my favorite place in Palm beach! I've been to some spectacular resorts from bora bora and to lots of Ritzs! This place blows every resort out of the water!!! It was just simply amazing. Even my date said I couldn't stop smiling!
We started out at hotel bar which is very large and grand. Yes this place is SUPER expensive but O sooooo worth it! I WILL get married here someday :) or live at this wonderland !

The Breakers is exhuberant in every way. While the (standard) room was relatively small it was perfectely comfortable. I didn.t stay much in the room anyway - with its 3 pools and miles of sand, the action is outside. Service is simply perfect. For people seeking simplicity and authencity, i would not recommend the Breakers... But then i would simply not recommend palm beach to anyone incomfortable around public display of wealth!

~ The facial, the massage

Really... what isn't there to like.

Room Tip: Ocean View ... so nice to sit and watch the waves and fall asleep to the sound.

We stay at Classic Hotels very often, but this Hotel is Top Notch! You will not be disappointed if you expect a high end Hotel on the Beach and with a Golf Course. The Breakers is the most incredible large piece of property (Ocean Views/Golf Course) with history! Great restaurants and bars to choose from. Plus a great location with closeby restaurants, shopping, etc. Your first encounter will be with the gorgeous flower arrangements displayed everywhere. Then in the morning, the gorgeous blue waves crashing into the sand, while you work out in the gym. The food & drinks are a little pricy, compared to restaurants in California, but worth it while vacationing and viewing the gorgeous scene. My husband and I had manicures and pedicures in the spa and found the area small, but they give you a cleaver gift of your nail color and nail accessories to take home, which worked great because we still had 2 more weeks of traveling out of the country.

Room Tip: Oceanfront, but they have smaller balcony's then we are used to.

You can expect to be treated like royalty. The architecture, decor and ambiance is unparalleled. Have not seen any other hotel like it and I travel a lot. From the moment you walk in you will feel special. The seafood bar has the best burgers I have ever tried in my life. The italian restaurant has amazing food as well. Love it!
