I just returned after attending a wedding at this resort. It was the most beautiful, well run facility I have ever visited. !00%of the staff were pleasant and helpful. The food and drink was outstanding ,albeit very expensive. Every corner of the hotel was a OMG moment-the frecoes on the ceilings, tapastries on the walls, fresh flowers and plants throughout. The pools were sparkling clean and cater to different interests..... we preferred the relaxation pool with soft SPA MUSIC and serentity. The ACTIVE POOL had contempory music and was close to the TIKI Bar and a casual resturant. We thoroughly enjoyed a rather modest lunch for 3 people which cost $110 with tip.. ....but the quality was awesome. The wedding reception in the Ventian Room was top notch...we wanted for nothing. With more than 200 guests, the food was expertly prepared and served. We found the buffet breakfast in the Circle restaurant to be an excellant value with fresh squeezed orange juice, omelet station,fresh fruit, assoted breads, ham , bacon, and much more.Again, the service was outstaning. We enjoyed the ambiance of the Tapastry bar in the evening with big deep chairs to sing into and enjoy a well made cocktail. Combos providing various music was very enjoyable. One word to describe this place.........ELEGANT!!!

Stayed with friends for a few days in August (third year in a row). Absolutely EVERYTHING was perfect. The staff is superior; from the front desk, to those that attend the concierge room (particularly the French gentleman who goes above and beyond!!), to the guys that attend the cabanas and the beach. Even when my keys were locked in my car, the young attendant (Stefanie..I think) was incredibly helpful and kind.

The building is really beautiful. Rooms perfectly clean. Food excellent!

It is my favorite hotel...ever! If there was a rating higher than excellent I would give it!!

Room Tip: We had two rooms on the Flagler Club floor. Both were excellent and the benefits of the Club far out...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in September. We were given a deluxe room (I'm sure that it was just a standard room) that was recently renovated. The room was very beautiful with mirrored doors and even a television in the plush bathroom. My only complaint with the room is the flooring. They choose tile, while very pretty, it does not control the noise. We were woken up daily by a baby crying, not something that is appealing when you are celebrating an anniversary.
Besides that minor issue, the hotel was grand in every way. The grounds were pristine. Fitness center was great (a lot of hotels can't really make this claim). The pools were very refreshing. The staff anticipated our every need.
Here's my big contribution: save up your money for the Sunday brunch. While very pricey ($60 for hotel guest and $75 for others), it is so worth it. This is coming from a budget savy gal. Crab claws, lobster, sushi, and endless Mimosa's and bloody mary's. My favorite is the desert bar. Count on at least twenty different concoctions that will make you smile for hours.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room away from the elevators

We stayed off season so got a great rate. We stayed on the club level which is a great value; there is a beautiful patio to sit and have drinks and relax after dinner. It is also a great place for reading the paper with breakfast.

Although the beach was not crowded we rented a cabana for extra space; we got one right near the beach and had fabulous views, a hammock, and great service.

The kids good advantage of surfing lessons which were a huge hit.

We have nothing but praise for the property--great service, great location, great waves and great weather. It ended up being cooler in Palm Beach than in the Northeast in early June!

Room Tip: we loved the Flagler level club rooms

Obviously, The Breakers says it all. If you have a weak wallet, don't even read this review, this place is not for you. However, for those who like fine accommodations and are willing to part with a few bucks to partake in luxury, this is your cup of tea. Having said this, I was annoyed when I asked for a late checkout. The lady at the desk was less than accommodating and dismissed me immediately saying, "We are fully committed, you will need to vacate the room at 12." This may or may not have been the case, but what she should have said was, "Unfortunately we can't accommodate you, but if you'd like to stay at by the pool the rest of the day, you have an option to rent out a cabana. The cabana has a flat screen TV, frig, shower, and bathroom. I would have gladly signed up. I didn't learn about it until later in the day, after being inconvenienced with storing my travel bags and pulling out select clothes for the day at the beach. It cost a few dollars but it would have been nice to watch the football game and soak in the sun at the same time in privacy....but she never offered it to me. I complained to a manager who pretty much shrugged his shoulders and apologized.
