“Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2009

Amazing service. Beautiful hotel & grounds. Beware: We had a room that had an adjoining door to another room. The people were so loud that we asked to be moved. The new room was not as nice. They said they were sold out.

Great restaurants & bars. Expensive but worth it. Gorgeous pools. Hardly any beach.

Surreal experience.

Stayed November 2009, traveled on business

Spent a relaxing weekend at the Breakers. The hotel and grounds have a perfect mix of historical opulence and modern luxury. The resort facilities were up to date and spotless, with excellent and friendly service from all the staff. We stayed on the Flagler Club level, which had quite a nice terrace/lounge area open throughout the day with snacks and drinks. This was particularly nice for relaxing, without feeling confined to the room. Really, we couldn't find anything to complain about. Many luxury hotels aren't worth the price, but this one certainly met every standard and beyond.

We stayed there with our 3 young children in October and having travelled a lot and being used to a certain level of quality we can say this hotel is just perfection. Everybody was helpful and made us feel comfortable. It was from far the best hotel we stayed in.

We traveled with our 19 month old son - and if you have any children - get on the first plane to this hotel.

Crumbled up muffin on gorgeous carpet? No problem! Kids club with arcade and playroom for little ones - perfect for husband's PS3 addiction and baby's need to stroll Elmo around the hallway - which is connected to a restaurant so you can play while waiting for your food.

Did I mention the delicious Raspberry Chi Chi drink?

The views? to drop.

Food - extremely overpriced.

Please go.

In the middle of September, 2009, I had the opportunity to spend a week at The Breakers.

This was no spur of the moment decision, no trip taken on a whim – this was a trip of a lifetime to celebrate a milestone birthday of mine, for which my husband and I have been planning for YEARS.

As you can imagine our expectations were sky high, and having never been to this hotel, we were fully aware that our hopes could easily be shattered.

I am delighted to report that The Breakers has not only met, but in many ways exceeded our expectations. It is our belief that no other hotel and its staff could have delivered to the standards that they have.

Service, service, service, to the highest degree. No automatons here, trying to push through as many tourists as possible through their hospitality system – these are professional service people taking great pride in their ability to truly make you feel like a welcomed and cherished guest, without a hint of phoniness or artifice. To top it off, they perform their task with the utmost competence and expediency. How refreshing!

Prior to our trip, my husband worked closely with the concierge group in order to ensure that certain things that he knew would make me feel very special were going to be actualized – e.g. making the staff aware that it’s my birthday, having a certain type of liqueur for our cocktails, with the proper accompaniments, having a special kind of dessert, etc., and just generally making me feel like a queen. The concierge team met all of these requests and added many perfectly appropriate touches of their own, all the while making us feel that it is their sole aim to make us happy.

And happy they made us! Wow… a gorgeous property, meticulously maintained, set right smack next to the “Big One” – a.k.a. Atlantic Ocean, with extraordinary service…. WOW!

So, if ever you want to be treated like royalty, nay deity, GO TO THE BREAKERS – you will NOT be disappointed!

This hotel is amazing. We loved everything, the lobby, rooms, bars (the counter made from the fish tank was awesome), pools, beach - everything. We booked several rooms and had some problems with billing but all worked out. Can't wait to go back.
