The Breakers consists of three buildings: The Hotel, The Boutique North Tower and The Paradise Tower. The Hotel is the original building, offering oceanfront units that range from rooms to three-room suites. Most units face the ocean and feature kitchen, flat-screen televisions and balconies. The property is close to local shops, restaurants and live entertainment. On the grounds, there are many pools and whirlpools (both indoor and outdoor). A spacious lawn overlooks the beach. Papa’s Restaurant serves a hearty breakfast buffet or a la carte dishes for dinner. Red Parrot Cafe is open for lunch and dinner, serving American favorites, like burgers and fries. Live entertainment is provided nightly. An ice cream parlor and Starbucks are also onsite.
Boutique North Tower is set a few blocks further down the beach at 27th Avenue. At this property, guests stay in two- and three-room suites. The grounds showcase a large children’s pool and a whirlpool. Market Restaurant serves a daily breakfast buffet.
The newest of the three, Paradise Tower offers one- to three-bedroom condos with full kitchens, balconies, washer/dryer units and Jacuzzi tubs. These suites sleep up to six people. The Paradise Tower is a family favorite, as it hosts a pirate-themed waterpark with a long Lazy River and a Kid’s Activity Center.

This is a nice place to go but if you have someone that is wheelchair bound this is not the place for you. It was a struggle to get in and out for a person that is in a wheelchair. You have to go all the way down a sidewalk and enter a gate in the back of the hotel, maneuver through the pools and enter that way. The same goes for the luggage carts, you can not enter the front of the building with them.
The Palms has several steps going up to lobby. The only way around this is to go around the back and carry your luggage on uneven stone between pool to reach elevator. The room were updated and nice with a college dorm frig, microwave and stove/plates. Nice since they don’t offer a free breakfast. Also, the front desk clerk gave me the wrong room number and I had a housekeeper open the door to a messed up room that had someone’s stuff in it (glad they weren’t there). The hot tub at Palms and Pardise were crowded but nice!
