ROOMS & SUITES: 540


One of America's legendary resort destinations, this 538-room, Italian Renaissance-style hotel was founded in 1896, and resides on 140 acres of oceanfront property in the heart of Palm Beach.


Renowned for its gracious service, the modern classic resort indulges its clientele, whether couples on a romantic getaway, multi-generational travelers on a family vacation or large gatherings in celebration. The Breakers' timeless atmosphere – from its magnificent interiors to its artfully designed landscape -- has been renewed in a style of relaxed elegance. Thanks to the dedication of its longstanding family ownership (descendants of founder Henry Flagler), the iconic resort continues to thrive independent of chain affiliation, re-investing a minimum of $30 million each year in capital improvements and ongoing revitalization. This extraordinary commitment balances preservation and modernization, continuously introducing and transforming amenities to bolster its contemporary appeal, such as the October 2015 debut of Flagler Club, an ultra-luxury boutique hotel set within the resort.

The Breakers features 36 holes of championship golf, including the Ocean Course and The Breakers Rees Jones® Course; 10 Har-Tru tennis courts; a new luxury spa; a breathtaking oceanfront with a half-mile of private beach, Mediterranean-style beach club, as well as poolside bungalows for daytime-rental, four oceanfront pools, five whirlpool spas and a variety of water sports; a Family Entertainment Center and an extensive program of family and children's activities. Nine restaurants, with settings ranging from casual beachfront to stylishly sophisticated, including HMF, the resort's destination for social drinking and eating and the transformed Flagler Steakhouse; as well as an array of on-site boutiques, are all owned and managed by the resort. The Breakers is recognized as a AAA Five Diamond property and has earned numerous accolades for its extraordinary social responsibility to the environment, the community and its team member quality of life and satisfaction.

• All diets can be catered for - Vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, etc. - just ask the chef.
• We loved their menu of fresh squeezed fruit and vegetable juices. Our favorite - Kale, spinach & cucumber.
• Due to its close proximity to the Gulfstream, Palm Beach enjoys a sub-tropical climate noted for year-round breezes and moderate temperatures ranging from 75-85 degrees.
• The Seafood Bar has oceanfront views (rare for Palm Beach restaurants) and a bar that is a glass fish aquarium.
• Best rooms to book are oceanfront with balconies.
• Evenings in the lobby offer fabulous people watching -- you might just see some iconic faces of Palm Beach.
