Family Entertainment at The Breakers Palm Beach- Freedom for Parents and Fun for Kids

I won’t beat around the bush. What makes a great stay at a family resort? Plenty of kids activities and freedom for the parents.

Ironically enough, up to this point, my kids always chose to hang out with their mama and papa over all the cool activities that some resorts or even cruises offer. I know, I should be so thankful that my children still want to spend time with me rather than run off and do their own thing.

But once in a while it’s really fun to have an adult conversation at a meal rather than be constantly interrupted or be whined to. I can guarantee that all parents will agree with me on this one.

The Breakers Palm Beach offers so many wonderful kids activities that we decided to give it a try. Coconut Crew day camp was the chosen activity. This way my husband and I could enjoy a peaceful buffet breakfast at the famous The Circle restaurant.

Of course on the day of camp my kids decide to sleep in. Every day for the past month they are up at the crack of dawn, and today of all days, I woke them up at 8:30 so they can get breakfast, in room service, and head on their merry way.

The camp is located in the Family Entertainment building which has tons of activities. However, it’s the girls that won us over. Immediately they greeted my kids and swept them away without me even realizing it.

Meanwhile, while registering them, I’m telling the lady in charge that I’m sure my baby will be calling for me within the next 30 minutes and acting all paranoid. Next time I saw my kids was after their lunch. In other words, they had a blast.

As we left, we saw the boys doing tricks and monkey bars at the playground as we sneaked away with me still anticipating a phone call from the camp administrator.

When we arrived to pick them up, they showed us all the cool things they did, from masks to scavenger hunts. Plus, the group was an international bunch with a little girl from France and two boys from Norway. None of which could speak English, yet were able to communicate with one another on kids terms. That to me was the highlight of it all, besides giving us three hours of tranquility.

Breakfast for Adults – Elegance and Fine Dining – Enjoyed and Savored

What does freedom look, sound and smell like for you? For me, on this particular day, my view was one of the most grandiose dining rooms I’ve ever been to.

And my nose was inhaling the delicious scents of a breakfast buffet.

And what I listened to was the chef explain to me what he’ll be putting in my omelet. And best of all, I had the chance to listen and participate in a normal, back and forth conversation with my husband while trying out all the yummy food and drinking my morning tea.
