If you’ve been following my Instagram account you’ll know that I was at The Breakers in West Palm Beach over the weekend. Also, if you aren’t following me on Instagram you can do so here @MyGoldenBeauty.
This is the second year in a row that I’ve been to this historic hotel and I can tell you that it does not disappoint! So a little about the hotel. The hotel was founded by Henry M. Flagler and was called “The Breakers” due to the proximity of the water and location – it is literally where the waves crash. What is interesting is that the hotel has gone through multiple renovations due to two fires in the early 1900’s. The current style of the hotel has European influences with so much beautiful architecture.
When you first pull into the long palm tree lined boulevard, you feel as though you are transported in time. You pull up into what is about to be the beginning of the most luxurious weekend. After being escorted out of your car and luggage taken inside, the lobby greats you with it absolutely stunning ceiling. Check-in was seamless and we were off to our room in no time.
We had a king room with ocean views and it sure didn’t disappoint! The bed is sooo comfortable and linens are top notch as well. There is also a cute little sitting area with two chairs and a table next to the window. The closet is also a pretty good size with plenty of wooden hangers and shelving. Now the bathroom is one of my favorites with its good lighting and the small face mirror and don't forget (my favorite part) - the television that is built into the mirror. It seriously made getting ready each day all that more enjoyable.
There are FOUR pools in total – we would congregate at the pool furthest away from the resort each day since it’s near a large bar and the lavish private beach bungalows. The pool service is also pretty good. Our cups were always full as there were always servers taking our drink orders. Each pool has a stand for towels (no limit to how many towels you take) and water. There is also a life guard on duty. In the beach area there are activities such as paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling, etc (but for a fee). There is also a golf course and tennis courts which we didn't check out since we were in the pool all day. There is also a Spa which we did not venture into but heard it was amazing from a few people that had services.
There are definetly plenty of dining and drink options at the resort:
The Italian Restaurant
Echo (Asian food)
Beach Club Restaurant
Each place has really good food and HMF is where everyone goes at night to grab drinks. It is packed each night and is quite the scene! The Seafood Bar is also worth checking out – the bar is literally a fish tank! We ate lunch at the Beach Club Restaurant each day andyou won't be disappointed (my favorite is the flat bread pizza with the prosciutto and arugula and also the turkey burger). Last year when we were at The Breakers, we dined at the Italian Restaurant which is also pretty good.
We ventured out of the resort and had dinner at our friends friend restaurant called Kitchen. It was really good! They had set up a pre-fix menu for our large group - seriously there was about 20 of us! Afterwards we ventured to Clematis street and bar hopped.
Overall, we had an amazing time on our trip and I can't wait to return again! If you have any questions feel free to ask in the comments below or shoot me and email!
