You may be asking: where is the rest of the Breakers Hotel review?
I promise, it's coming! My husband had to take a last minute business trip up to Atlanta, Georgia. I decided to tag along. So once I am done with my Breakers information I'll be helping you virtually explore some of the sights in the Atlanta area!
It was a great surprise to me that they have extensive children's areas at The Breakers Hotel. We did not utilize them because our son was only 3 1/2 months at the time of our visit, but if we do return one day I would not hesitate to let my child enjoy in all that they offer. Throughout the day we saw counselors playing field games with kids, taking them to the various pools, etc. All of the children looked like they were enjoying themselves. Here is a quick run-down of the facilities.
The Breakers Palm beach has an infant and toddler pool. It was small, but what else do the little ones need? It was less than a foot deep and situated right near the main pool and active pool. It was nice because not many hotel properties allow babies in swim diapers due to public health risks. We had our son double swim diapered! Children are allowed in the other pools as well, but I loved that they have a pool specific to the little ones.
There was a full fledged playground near Family Entertainment Center & Italian Restaurant. During the day it was fairly empty, but in the evenings there were kids of all ages playing on the equipment.
Family Entertainment Center
Within the Family Entertainment Center, there were a variety of things such as computer stations, a movie theater, large arcade, toddler room with toys, large fishtank, craft tables and more!
Coconut Crew Night Camp/ Babysitting
From 5:30pm until 9:30pm children ages 3-12 can have dinner and participate in a variety of activities from arts & crafts, supervised indoor/outdoor activities, and scavenger hunts. If reserved early enough in advance there are also in-room baby sitters available.
The Breakers certainly has no shortage of pools! The lap pool was under construction during our visit, but that's quite alright! There were 3 large pools with various purposes. South Pool was more for relaxing, Main pool was for the families, and Active pool appeared to be more family oriented as well. We didn't see any activities going on there during our stay, but we hung by the infant/toddler pool due to our little one. In the pool area were two restaurants and a multitude of bungalows.
When we arrived at the pool one of the employees helped find us two lounges in the shade because we had the baby with us. It was great, they brought us water and occasionally asked if we needed anything. We even saw him move an umbrella for another young family so they could sit by the children's pool and have some shade! There was no shortage of great service.
My birthday was back in May. My husband told me that he had a really nice present for me, but I would have to wait for it and that it would be a surprise.
So I woke up Father's Day morning expecting to let him pick what we would do for the day and let it be relaxing and laid back. Instead, my husband said "Pack a bag for you and Connor, we're going somewhere!"
We ended up at the Breakers Hotel on Palm Beach. Yes, this was definitely going to be a relaxing and laid back Father's Day!
Tune in this week for my review!
I am a huge fan of entertainment and gimmick dining: Melting Pot, Hibachi/ Teppanyaki, Brazilian steakhouses, etc. where there is more than just a meal. So when my dad told me about Hard Eight I figured this was right up my alley!
It was a bit of a drive from where we were staying, but I didn't mind because we were on vacation. We went to the Coppell location.
It is a bit on the expensive side because you pay by the pound and each side is a la carte. However I enjoyed the food and experience!
What did I have? Pork ribs, mac n cheese, cornbread salad, and beans! The ribs were very good, I was able to add as much or little sauce as I wanted. As I stated above the, mac n cheese tasted like Velveeta Shells & Cheese, the cornbread salad (tomatoes, bacon, green onion, cheese, and mayo/miracle whip) was an interesting new thing for me but good, and the beans were so-so in my opinion.
