Overview

Property offers a plethora of outdoor amenities, including two golf courses, four pools and a private beach
Some guests say this hotel is overpriced

Travelers and critics alike gush over this Italian Renaissance-style resort. High on their list of perks are the gorgeous grounds, which feature two golf courses, four pools, a private beach and 10 Har-Tru tennis courts. And the genial front desk staff will probably recommend you spend a day in the relaxing spa. As for lodging, the spacious guest rooms come with custom furnishings and high-end linens, as well as flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi access. Yet not all travelers were impressed, noting that the resort can get crowded and advising guests to watch out for hidden fees. Reviews are much better for the on-site restaurants: Recent guests appreciated the variety of dining options, though some do say the prices here can be a little steep. Visitors suggest The Beach Club Restaurant for breakfast or lunch and the Flagler Steakhouse for an elegant dinner. You'll find The Breakers along Palm Beach's South County Road, less than 2 miles east of downtown West Palm Beach.

READ MORE 

More than an opulent hotel, The Breakers is a legendary 140-acre self-contained jewel of a resort built in a Mediterranean style and loaded with amenities, from a 20,000-square-foot luxury spa and grandiose beach club with four pools and a half-mile private beach, to 10 tennis courts, croquet courts, and two 18-hole golf courses. Henry Flagler's descendants still run the place and invest $25 million a year to keep it at the cutting edge. Dating from 1896 and on the National Register of Historic Places, the common areas have water nymphs frolicking at the main fountain, and majestic frescoes grace hallways leading to restaurants.

Inspired by the Italian villas of the fifteenth century and modeled on the Villa Medici in Rome, this historic hotel, built by Henry Morrison Flagler, has 'timeless Italian Renaissance–style architecture.' 'The opulent public areas are exquisitely appointed and feel special.'

Unsurpassed in terms of luxury when oil tycoon Henry Flagler built it in 1896, the Breakers outdid itself in a 1926 renovation modeled after various Italian renaissance palaces and gardens. Still the Grande Dame of deep-pocketed Palm Beach, the ... resort, set on 140 beachfront acres, is pure drama, its palm-lined drive leading up to the twin-spired towers.
