Hotel Spotlight: The Breakers
Here at Swirl, we love shining the spotlight on family-friendly hotels in beautiful, desirable locations - and The Breakers is certainly one of our favorites. The Breakers is a stunning property in sunny Palm Beach, Florida, and one that is perfect for bringing along your entire crew whether it’s a multi-generational family or groups of friends whose families run the age gamut. The Breakers truly makes it easy to bring grandparents, babies and kids, and even the sometimes tough-to-please teenagers along for an enjoyable and memorable vacation.
From family fitness classes, golf clinics, and bicycle rentals to an impressive 4,500sqft playground space, a bounty of age-appropriate toys, movie nights, and water sports, The Breakers literally has something for everyone. They have childcare if you’d like an evening out and camps for the kids to keep them engaged, entertained, and educated during the day. Plus, with nine (9!!) restaurants on site, including an Italian joint right next to the playground so the kids can get their wiggles out while you eat, there really is no need to leave the property!
Between the ‘Shortboards’ and the ‘Longboards’, Camp Breakers hosts kids ages 3 to 12, immersing them in nature, getting their imagination going with creative programming, and sending them on fantastic scavenger hunts around the beach and throughout the property. Camp Breakers also puts on inspiring science labs and involves daily education involving topics like the Florida railroad or Florida wildlife. A robust program combined with a small child-to-staff ration (usually 6:1) means kids are playing, learning, and making memories all day long.
Around holidays, like the 4th of July, Camp Breakers provides a myriad of additional activities like lawn games, balloon artists, bounce house jumping and family-friendly dive-in movies. This spectacular lineup builds on the Breakers long standing history of catering to multigenerational travel. It is no surprise that the property was recognized by Parents Magazine as a “Best Family Friendly Resort.” They have a thriving market on property, an array of dining options as well as thoughtful recreation for all ages. An outdoor playground and considerate, family-oriented staff help take the experience to the next level.
The Breakers is more than a travel destination, they play an important role in the local community. Their impact includes over 25,000 volunteer hours donated, thousands of meals donated to alleviate hunger and even 430 toys donated to the boys and girls club. This adds up to over $2.45 million dollars donated to worthy causes.
All in all, it makes for a wonderful place to make memories while supporting a property that is serving its community.
