I have enjoyed the DBC fro more years than I can count. It is always nice to go at the same time every year and catch up on the news from the other guests. The area is quaint and serene and a great place to relax and enjoy the food and drinks. The staff are always polite and helpful and... More

We stayed for a few days in late March in a 1 bedroom on the first floor. The room had a full kitchen, bath, living room (with pull out bed/couch), and a queen size bed. The living room was clearly renovated recently, but the bedroom, kitchen appliances and bath seemed a little dated. The free wifi was spotty in the... More

My husband and I recently stayed a week at The Driftwood on and RCI exchange. It is an older, smaller property that has been renovated but that is part of its charm. It is well maintained. It's so nice to walk out of your unit and be at the pool. They have a beautiful, private beach patio which we enjoyed... More

The Driftwood is an older property but very well maintained. Newly decorated/furnished (most rooms are complete), all suites w/small kitchen and living room plus a few studio apts. Very near the ocean (about 1/2 block via Driftwood's private property your w/shuffle board courts). Nice pool w/diving board and jacuzzi. Several restaurants within walking distance. Free Wifi. Friendly staff. I have... More

Wow our experience here was one of the worse I've had in my travels. See the pictures posted!! Bugs and trash at the door. Murphy Bed. Can't see TV from the bed. But the zinger was arriving to a locked office and notice that they would return at 4 pm. Didn't want early check in but the courtesy of dropping... More

Dear Driftwood Guest, We are sorry that you were disappointed with your studio assignment from RCI. Because we try to have as many of our amenities as possible in a small space, the studios can be a bit crowded. The televisions are on a moveable cart which some guests roll out further to watch television from the bed. As you... More

Can't imagine a better place to stay for vacation. The staff is awesome, the location is perfect and the place itself allows you to truly relax. We go back every year to be with friends and family. Can't wait for next year!

The only downside of our recent stay at Driftwood was that it was way to short! Driftwood is primarily a timeshare place, but with a few holiday rental units as well. A lot of guests/owners have been coming for the same weeks for years and years and obviously know each other well. Even as passing outsiders, we were made to... More

Great experience from the moment we walked on the property. Arrived early and was able to check into room. Beach access easy. Having access to chairs on beach is a plus. Beach...... steps away. Stayed in a one bedroom unit...... spacious and immaculate. Couldn't get a better location. Thumbs up
