I stayed at driftwood with my sister and friend and we were not disappointed. At first look, the place looked stuck in the 70's and very motel like. Our room although updated in some aspects seemed dated BUT after spending a week here I would not hesitate to come back. On Monday morning we headed to the patio for donuts... More

Our perfect-sized resort!! Hate the large, sterile, elevator-to-the-15+ floor-type condos! Feel like your in city WITHIN a city. Yuk! This was great! Only 2 floors; all access to pool; VERY friendly staff AND fellow-guests! Best part: direct,private access to beach equipped with beach chairs& lounges! (no umbrellas, though :-( Close to cool eatin places,& other shops! Weather "smiled on us"... 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

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!
