More than any other Palm Beach high-rise, this 354-room hotel has a casual, lived-in quality. Perhaps it's because one of the wings incorporates the area's first hotel or the fact that mature coconut, sea grape, and frangipani trees have been allowed to go slightly feral. The fine-sand beach, which is studded with 150 palapas, seems to come all the way up to a pair of free-form swimming pools rimmed by cabanas and sea oats. Many rooms have plantation-style four-poster mahogany beds, and all have Italian marble bathrooms and free Internet access. The seventh- and eighth-floor Plaza Club rooms have 42-inch flat-screen TVs, Egyptian cotton sheets, and angled water-view balconies. The family-conscious operation also has a kid's camp, PADI-certified dive center, fitness center, and Avis car-rental desk. Grown-ups will appreciate the four-diamond Sunset Grille, a steakhouse with superb service and wine cellar, and the award-winning Larimar Spa, an Asian-Caribbean space where you can soothe sun-baked skin with an aloe vera and rum massage.
