Very acceptable place for a family vacation. A few steps from the beach and Lauderdale by the Sea village and restuarants, friendly and responsive staff and a great family atmosphere. The hotel is in the process of upgrading the interiors, but it's very well maintained and extremely clean with well stocked kitchenette. This isn't our first visitant will not be... More

We travel frequently and it is unusual for us to visit the same place twice. We like to see new places and explore new things. We visited Driftwood Beach club a few years ago and it was more than worthy of a second visit. It is near the beach and the family like atmosphere is so relaxing and fun to... More

Booked this through an RCI exchange. The apartment is clean and well furnished with a comfortable double bed. There are plenty of drawers and storage space. The kitchenette is very adequate and has partly been upgraded- the cupboards and work top/ sink are very modern but the noisy fridge and cooker are something out of the 1980s. I remember us... More

My experience is excellent. Family atmosphere, great location,Staff is friendly. Ellen the manager is always so helpful and cares about your stay. The new young addition "Bobby" is quite an asset to the Driftwood. His willingness to help and smile is amazing for a young man. Thank you for everything.

The rooms are great! Beds are comfortable, new decor. Rooms are clean and staff is amazing. Walk out to the pool. Private access to beach. Restaurants and shopping just a few steps away. I have been going there 20 years and wouldn't stay anywhere else.

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
