This ocean front resort may not be grand in appearance, but opens up to a rather pleasant five-star experience right in Palm Beach, Florida. This refined resort is comprised of 210 rooms, three restaurants, one pool, spa and fitness center, boutique and kids’ club.

Flying to

The closest airport is Palm Beach International Airport, and the hotel is just a 20 minute drive. Before leaving the airport, you might want to consider renting a car, as the hotel does not have much in the way of offsite dining and shopping within walking distance.

The Rooms

The rooms are elegantly appointed with a light and airy beach vibe. For our family of four, we took a room with two double beds and were quite comfortable during our stay. When choosing a room, there are also a few different view options ranging from ocean to resort to limited. Four Seasons charges no additional fee for children 18 years or under occupying the same guest room as their parents or guardians.

The Beach

four-seasons-palm-beach-water-sportsThe hotel is situated right on the white power sand and aqua water for Palm Beach. Unfortunately, during our stay in November we didn’t have the best beach weather. The sand wasn’t raked, probably do to low occupancy, and there was a quite a bit of seaweed and washed up debris . Not a common complaint for guests, but it would have been nice if it was cleaned up a bit. Many guests do comment that there aren’t enough chairs at the beach and it fills quickly. Beach amenities include:

  • Towel Service
  • Cabana Rentals
  • Tetherball, Bocceball and Volleyballfour-seasons-palm-beach-view
  • Full wait service
  • Chaise Lounges and Umbrellas
  • Sunscreen
  • Snorkeling (guests 12 and over)
  • Motorized and Non-Motorized Water Sports (Rentals)

Spa & Fitness
