... them and shooting up into the sky. We decided to try low tide for our first visit.
The night before I looked up the tide schedule for Jupiter. We arrived around 11:15, which was perfect. Parking was a cinch. There's two parking lots (note that they close around 4:30) just past the first sign for Blowing Rocks. We started our hike by checking out ...
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 ...

We all ate together and then Rich and Roxton headed out to the shops and the others had a jacuzzi bath and watched tv while I packed. When they got back we got the kids to bed and we finished the packing so that we didn't have to do anything in the morning except pack the car. Then ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Omphoy Ocean Resort Palm Beach
Great Hotel, Great Value!
I stayed at this hotel twice on business and enjoyed my stay both times. The hotel is right on the beach. The restaurant and bar have great indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the ocean and the staff is very friendly. The pool and hot tub are both a step from the beach and are very inviting. My only complaint would be that each time I got the same room overlooking the parking lot (probably due to the discounted busines rate), but I still had a side balcony with a partial ocean view. The room was large, clean, comfortable and very reasonably priced. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel for both business and pleasure travel and intend to return for both.
Just got back from a nights stay at this Hotel, and I was not so happy with the meal selections for children at this hotel. We went to the oceanfront restaurant there and it was closed, so we proceded to the outside restaurant and they could only offer, a burger or chicken strips for children (at a very high price I may add). Therefore, there was not another restaurant in the area, we ended up driving for about 1/2 hour to reach a decent name brand restaurant. I did get this reservation on priceline (thank goodness), because if I had paid the going rate for this hotel, I would of definately requested my money back and went further up for a different hotel. May I mention that our room was proubally one of the worst that they offered, not sure if this was because of going through priceline or not. Please be aware that they do charge a $16 a day parking fee, valet parking and you also need to tip on top of the charge every time they get you your car. I would not stay at this hotel again, my suggestion go somewhere else if you have kids.
My friend and I just came back from a long weekend at the Hilton. We had purchased rooms for $90 a night on Priceline, and when we looked up reviews on Trip Advisor we were nervous! However, thankfully, we ended up being pleasantly surprised.--though we would have been annoyed to if we paid what some of the other reviewers did! While the service is not a 4-star level, overall the staff were very nice and helpful. One of the bell hops was kind of rude, but the other guys were great. The hotel is right on the beach, and the restaurants overlook the ocean.
Loved the Ocean and the Price!
I recently stayed at the Hilton Palm Beach Oceanfront Resort. What a great deal!!! After looking at the Breakers, Four Seasons and the Ritz I came along this great resort recommended by the other hotels. At more than $100 less per night than the other Palm Beach hotels I grabbed me a great room. At check in the bell staff was the most friendly I've ever encountered. The front desk was most accomodating. The room was larger than a standard but not a suite and it had a private balcony. The blacony was roomy with chairs and a table. The view was awesome, coming from NY the beach view hit the spot. The eateries are both oceanfront, it was so great I would recommend this hotel to anyone considering to stay in Palm Beach on the Ocean. By the way they are right next to the Four Seasons.
Only car in lot but still 16 bucks
Stayed 4 days. had the same experiences as other reviewers. Front Desk Staff from hell. Charges for everythng little thing. The hotel was 3/4 empty, we were the literally in only car in the lot at times. We even got the car ourselves, cause there was no around and it seemed stupid have valet service but we were still charged $16 dollars day for parking.
Room was standard, but of course we were put the next only other people there who had baby that was crying all night. Had ask for room to moved twice before any action was taken. As I said hotel was about 3/4 empty.
and they still gave us hard time about moving the room.
Lobby was pleasant. Beach was nice. be careful of Sea Lice between May and early July.
This hotel is not a resort and is no better than motel 8. Parking is expensive and the service is poor. It,s not worth the money. I would not stay there again and would not recommend it to anyone. This hotel is a disgrace to Hilton brand.
When we arrived for our honeymoon at the Hilton Resort in the Palm
Here is the list of reasons why I will not recommend this Hilton: 1.Daily parking fee of $16.00 plus tax 2.Swimming pool in middle of parking lot 3) Bottled water in room with a $5.00 price tax per bottle 4)Leaky bathtub faucet that was not repaired during the 6 days of my stay 5)Filthy coffee pot that dumped black chunks in my tea...left a note for the maid to replace, but she did not...I had to go the front desk one evening 6)The convenience store ran out of toothpaste and the front desk does not give it out 7)The convenience store ran out of ice cream for the entire time of my stay 8) Some very unpleasant staff members. i visited the Fairfield Inn across the street while I was here, and I will stay there on my next trip.
Nice little beach, nice service, somewhat secluded
Went there just for a night on business, got a very nice corner room.
Hotel itself is elegant, and the staff was very friendly. Beach is a little small but nice, not crowded. There's NOTHING else around however, as it's off a stretch of A1A, and the food options are obviously limited. I'd come here for a weekend with my wife if we needed a weekend alone away, but I'd go stir crazy on a longer trip.
Note: there's a mandatory daily parking fee that was pretty pricey, and given that it's not convenient to anything else, you basically have to have a car to stay there.
this is the worst resort that i have ever been to. the pool was small, located in the parking lot (despite an oceanfront location), and there were never any towels. The beach was nice, but there was a fee for beach chairs and umbrellas. The food was average at best. The rooms were fine, but the staff was lazy and unattentive. If I were to go back the the area, i would definitely stay at the breakers or the four seasons (next door). the only upside to this trip was that i got a great rate of 119 a night. dont even think of paying more than that for this 'hotel on the beach' (It is definitely not a resort. there is no spa, the pool sucks, there is no tennis and no golf).
