... write up on the Blowing Rocks Preserve pop up on my Facebook feed one day. I did some research and decided to check it out this past weekend with my friend Alli. I read mixed reviews on when to go...low tide is great because you can see all the rocks and formations. High tide is also beautiful as you can really see the "blowing rocks" or waves ...
Ordered a new REI rolling duffle yesterday. Will it really fit my walking poles? Will I be able to travel 2.5 months in the bag? Will I be able to lug it up B and B stairs which inevitably will present themselves after long days? Just when I am trying to get smaller and smaller gear I have ...
Today we did parent swap again. Feel good for going. Managing 5km comfortably now which is such a blessing. Then started sorting out our clothes for the Caribbean, not that we have many anyway but we are going to take only 1 suitcase. Then it was down to the pool for a swim. Amazing how Rorke was too short on Friday when we arrived but now he is tall enough to go on it, he is in his element. Then Rich and the kids played putt putt and I read in the sun. Then I played with ...
... of the car with some effort. So here i am rescued by my 2 blonde girl hosts that seemed very cool right off the start. They were 25, kind and laid back. So a bit like me i guess. They were very hospitable and got me food, bud beers and a warm Shower. The shower made me feel rebourne, after a day of sweating on the bike, cycling my ass off. They had 2 dogs: a small royal one named Henry and a bigger one called Cody, who They ...
Another day we stopped at the Norton Museum of Art, which had a special exhibit of some of the photo of Annie Leibovitz. I enclosed some of the pictures.
International Polo Club Palm Beach
On Sunday we attended a polo match, which I have enclosed some of the pictures. The speed of the game is very fast and high scoring. The team in black "Lucchese" won 9 to 7.

Historical Traveler Reviews Palm Beach Oceanfront Inn
We spent two nights at this establishment out of necessity as everywhere else that was decent was already booked as it was Valentines weekend. This place is no more than the most basic of motels, despite its description as a 'boutique' hotel. The staff were to be commended as they were as helpful as possible, but the rooms were basic (even the so-called upgraded ones).Our bathroom was covered in pubic hairs, despite the fact that it had been cleaned as evidenced bu the toilet roll having been folded into a neat triangle at the end. The towels are of the small. thin and thin on the ground, as they were reluctant to give us some or the beach. At $161 per night, this does not reflect well on the management.
My kids had a blast!
I stayed there with my 3 children. My kids played on the beach all day.
While I read my books poolside. I could watch them playing becaus ethe pool is right above the beach. Wonderful.
I enjoyed thier restuarnt great food not too expensive.
I had a ball, and kids loved it too.
Love you guys and see you soon!
New ownership Great renovations Looks like a Bermuda style hide away Direct Oceanfront Private Beach Kids loved it Next door to 5 star resorts Minutes to Worth ave and City Place we paid about $100 Need I say more
Awesome see ya soon
The hotel and staff were great. I hope that the other reviews keep guests away, so the prices will stay low. Were can you stay on the beach in Palm Beach County for the money. The restaurant was great, the view fantastic and worth the money. If what you want is First Class, the go to Ritz Carlton; pay the price and don't complain. a satisfied customer that will return many times.
Glad we only had 1 night
November 2003. The carpet in this room was so dirty. The property is run down and in need of attention. A dirty washrag was hanging in the shower. The coffeepot did not work right and only half filled when run.
The Tides grill had good food, a beautiful view and seemed in much better repair. We had supper and breakfast there. We paid $50.00 for the room(2 adults, 2 children) and received $16.00 credit for breakfast on a special rate through Nov. from a discount hotel website. At that rate I guess I can not complain too much. If the carpet had not got our feet dirty I may not have complained at all. It was a safe area and the beach was nice. All in all we got what we paid for.
Now, I try to not be a picky person but these people push it a bit too far. When my friend and I arrived, we had to pay extra money to use the beach even though Florida residents who DO NOT stay at the hotel tell, take up parking and space at the beach for....wel...FREE! And as paying customers we had to pay to use the beach. Then, it costs a dollar each time you use the phone, even if you use a 1-800 number. The receptionist told us it would be a "flat rate of $1.00 per call" but after I made 3 calls my bill mysteriously went up to $5.24. Flat rate?
my wife and i stayed there last week. We paid $69 a night and got a free full breakfast included, not continental. The hotel is directly on the beach next to the Ritz Carlton. We drove to city place and worth ave evryday. The rooms need work but i belive they are being renovated.
The best oceanfront value on the Island of palm Beach, bar none.
We have stayed here for years but did not the last two years and it was always fairly nice, but this time on Aug;10, it was disgusting. The motel has gone down so much. It is such a shame. The room was filthy and no one returned our calls when we wanted to talk to the management.
This hotel was such a disappointment. I only stayed here because my grandmother lives in a condo two doors down, and there wasn't enough room for my whole family to stay there. I feel bad for the people who actually make a vacation out of staying at this place. I don't know why they say the rooms are recently renovated, I'd hate to see them before! I am not very picky about where I sleep, I just expect it to be clean (especially for $150/night). The room was dingy, dark and the carpet was filthy. The bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned in weeks, there was sand and hair still in the tub from the last guests! And there was hair all over the floor. One day, we went to the beach and got back to the room at 5pm, and it still hadn't been cleaned. The pool area is filled with drunk slobs with mullets and tattoos. Thank god I could go over to the pool and beach area at my grandmother's condo! For the price you pay, this hotel is one of the dirtiest I've ever stayed at.
The Palm Beach Hawaiian Ocean Inn is now called the Palm Beach Ocean Front Inn. I now know why they changed their name. I truly regret that I didnt see your reviews of this place before I had the worst hotel experience of my lifetime. My husband and I have travelled the world over and have never been as disgusted as this. We arrived at the hotel late in the evening and couldnt tell how dirty it was. After 1 hour in the room I looked at my socks and they were black! My husband and my Mother threw their socks away. I left mine with the manager to show him the problem. I doubt he will do anything. He never did a thing to help us during our stay. The 2 bedroom suites are poolside. What they dont tell you is this is also bar side. They actually have a speaker mounted on the room right outside your door. The music comes on at 7:30am and stays on constantly until 10:30 pm. I called the manager twice per day all three days to complain. He never turned down the music, even when the bar was empty! They knew we were travelling with a toddler. We had requested a crib. The crib was unusable. Good luck getting a toddler to sleep with music blaring! On Friday night they had a live band. I had to step over the amp to get out of my room. The band was literally 2 feet from my door. I requested to change rooms but the other rooms were standard hotel rooms. The room he offerred me was filthy and smelled awful. I was amazed at the level of total disregard the staff had for us. We were paying $200 per night. We had to suffer through those 3 nights. We couldnt find anywhere else in high season. Dont go to this place unless you are under 21 and love to party, dont mind filth, and arent of afraid of burly drunk men.
