I recently jetted to Palm Beach with my little ones to experience a few days at the iconic Breakers resort. I have had the good fortune to visit the property with girlfriends several years ago, and was especially excited to this time bring my kids! One huge perk is that the Breakers has GREAT summer specials. They may change from year to year, but for the past couple have included complimentary kids meals for children under 12. And this is in ADDITION TO Virtuoso amenities (listed below). This is a great deal for families in the summer, and there is a comprehensive daily Camp Breakers program available for the kids as well.
But what I really love best about the Breakers is that it is one of those unique properties that caters extremely well to both families AND couples, with spot-on great service by its smiling staff. They do feature a quiet, adults-only pool and the HMF bar & lounge is perfect for an apertif!
The Breakers is a historic Florida landmark created by Henry S. Flagler which opened in 1926 after a resurrection of his original hotel due to fire. The lobby’s soaring frescoed ceilings evoke grand European hotels and it certainly feels glamorous! Upon check-in, my kids each received a “passport” filled with questions they could ask of staff members, and in turn they could earn stickers to fill their book. So clever- they loved it! Once in our beautiful Premium guest room, the kids discovered a sand pail full of toys they could play with at the beach (and this is one perk of booking through Haute Holidays!)
Over the next few days, we enjoyed exploring the four oceanfront pools, family activities center, and restaurants. The kids loved the pizza at the Italian restaurant while I obsessed over the red quinoa salad with salmon at the poolside Ocean House. We had such a fun time, splashing in the pool and building sandcastles on the beach. This trip I stayed on property, but if you have time to explore, the Breakers rents bikes.. and also the famous Worth Avenue nearby is great for shopping. I know that I will return someday (many guests return year after year!) for the ambiance, friendly staff, and beautiful resort amenities. Til next time, Breakers!
