U.S. News Review

Each of the 130 rooms and suites at this modern, minimalist hotel has either a large balcony or terrace to bask in the sea views afforded by its oceanfront perch on South Ocean Boulevard. Other in-suite amenities include stocked minibars and flat-screen TVs. But recent guests suggest you ditch your room to explore everything else that this Palm Beach resort has to offer. At The Omphoy Ocean Resort, you'll find the BABOR Beauty Spa, which offers a variety of treatments, such as facials and massages. The property also boasts a scenic, palm tree-lined infinity pool with private cabanas. Previous guests rave about the decor in this boutique hotel, saying that the upscale ambiance makes it a desirable retreat for couples. Opinions on dining at the Omphoy are mixed, however. Some previous guests have plenty of praise for the cuisine found at the property's four in-house restaurants, but others found the portions a little too small considering the price. Many formers guest praised the location, but not the price tag.
