“Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2010

We visited and toured the Breakers previously but had not had the opportunity to stay. We were impressed by the history, architecture, and grounds of the Breakers. What we did not expect when we visited this July, was to be awestruck by the service. At every turn from the time we pulled up to the valet to the minute we drove away down the palm lined drive, every staff encounter was stellar! Rooms were lovely and pristine. Meals may appear pricey to some, but the food and service is worth the price! If you have the time and the inclination indulge in a day at the Bungalows, especially near the relaxation pool -truly a one of a kind experience. The spa is also outstanding.

A high end resort where they know how to pamper. I've travelled around the globe - business and pleasure but have yet to see such consistent/authentic, pleasant and helpful customer service with a smile from everyone everyday. A very classy place that loves kids and is down to earth/no snobbery here. Room was a tad small but fine for the three of us (with a 4 year old). Value was exceptional on summer promo (free kid camp worth $95 per day on it's own, free breakfast - incl. juice/tea/coffee , free WiFi and valet parking). Grab lunch at the cafe and eat in the courtyard just outside. Interesting activities everyday! The larger courtyard was under construction (would never have known other than the view from our window) and was off limits. Golf/tennis prices out of reach - yes pricey but worth every penny. This is a 5 diamond...not a 5 star. Loved it and will definitely be back - with or without kid in tow.

We traveled with several other couples for a long weekend of golf, dining, and swimming. The staff were professional. Check-in was quick, and our room was ready on arrival. The grounds, public areas and our room were spotless. We ate at four of the restaurants; the food was excellent, but a little on the expensive side. The beach and pools were not too crowded, and we always had beach chairs and umbrellas.
All in all, it was a totally relaxing and enjoyable time. We hope to return with our children sometime in the near future. They will go wild over the many pools, and the calm ocean waters.

Our stay at The Breakers was wonderful from the beautiful building to the first-class service at the hotel. The hotel is extremely kid-friendly - our girls enjoyed the Coconut Crew and were treated like princesses the entire weekend. The room was clean and roomy - the staff took it upon themselves to install bed rails when they realized we had little kids. Service was wonderful everywhere from the hotel shops, restaurants, kids club, pool etc. The Family Center was perfect for the rainy afternoons. The only negative that I can think of is the beach - it isn't a very big beach although it was big enough for us! The Breakers is definitely a gem - the perfect mix of a top-notch resort while kid-friendly.

This is the perfect place to stay in Palm Beach. The hotel is Impeccably clean. The location is great. There are 4 swimming pools and all are clean and warm. The setting is very beautiful. Service is 5-star. Food is of the highest quality. Although, the beach is not as beautiful as more well known beaches, but the white sands and the overall experience make-up for that short-coming.

A business trip brought us back. We have been here several times over the past seven years. Consistently over the years it's always five stars. The service is top notch, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the food is superb! The only downside is that the food and amenities are expensive. The fantastic Cheeseburger will set you back $20 but the Avocado fries are so good you'll forget all about it. The golf course is friendly and immaculate. Not withstanding, this Resort is the best in my book.

Staying here is staying in a historic place. Grand old 1925 hotel that still packs them in, even in the Florida summer. I was here for a business meeting and brought my wife, who was celebrating her birthday. Once the hotel found out, there were little surprises for her all weekend. One night in a bar, the manager discovered it was her birthday (coded on charge key, I believe) and waved off our two drinks as on the house "because, come on, it's her birthday". Service all weekend was outstanding.

Walls were thin and we could hear the couple next door arguing all weekend. But then she was REALLY shouting.

I like this place. Now, you can eat much less expensively off grounds (downtown Palm Beach with great restaurants is two blocks to the North, but many people don't know that). One last tip: Avoid the hotel's Flagler's Steak House. Good food (at a price) but no atmosphere at all..
