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 guest rooms come with custom furnishings and high-end linens, as well as flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi access. Yet not all previous travelers were impressed, noting that the resort's rooms are small, dated and pricey. However, many recent guests raved about the on-site restaurants, recommending The Beach Club Restaurant for breakfast or lunch and the Flagler Steakhouse for an elegant dinner. You'll find The Breakers along Palm Beach, Florida's South County Road, less than 2 miles east of downtown West Palm Beach.

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.

Fodor's Choice

Condé Nast Traveler


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.'

Travel + Leisure


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.


This sprawling 140-acre resort feels more like a Renaissance palace than a hotel. The oceanfront grounds are defined by historic architecture and elegant landscaping, and the extensive features include five swimming pools, two 18-hole golf courses, 10 tennis courts, nine restaurants, and 10 boutique shops.



Originally built in 1896 by Henry Flagler, this Italian-inspired hotel is one of the world's most famous. The multifaceted resort features everything that you can imagine, even a 16 person hot tub.
