Some complaints of subpar poolside and beachside service
10-minute drive south of the main Palm Beach action
The Four Seasons Resort is located on a relatively quiet stretch of sand about a 10-minute drive south of the area's main attractions. The 210 rooms are decorated in sophisticated beach style, with a blue, white and cream color scheme, and have private balconies. There are thoughtful amenities for families; the chic spa is a high point; and guests can expect extra touches like water spritzes and sunscreen at the (smallish) ocean-view pool. But some may feel the property isn't quite up to the usual Four Seasons standard: The building exterior is short on curb appeal, rooms lack "wow" factor, and some have complained that poolside and beachside service could be better. The hotel will be closing in summer 2017 for a renovation of the lobby and guest rooms.
