A great timeshare trade as the place felt like home as soon as we walked in the room. Rooms had been recently redone and even though an older property, it is in good shape and well kept up. It is a short walk (1 minute) to its part of the beach complete with chairs and loungers. The beach is amazing... More

We recently spent a week at this small hotel and were quite pleased with our stay. It is an older property, but with updated room, and its location is perfect as once you get here, there is beach, food, and fun all within walking distance. We tried several of the local restaurants and were not disappointed but once and the... More

Stayed for a week in October, 2014 as a timeshare guest. I just loved the place. Nice private pool area, private beach access, clean, clean, clean! Staff could not have been friendlier. Have had a let down at timeshares in the past but this place makes up for the bad taste. Location is a plus, between A1A and El Mar.... More

This is our second visit here, and we love it. Keep expecting Doris Day to come around the corner ... Lovely apartments, very small resort with really friendly people (office staff and fellow visitors). We arrived at midnight and were immediately greeted by guests sitting at the pool. They offered help with the luggage and very cold beer! We've hired... More

Well first of all we have never stayed at your very clean and nice looking place and I have always wanted to. I read the reviews all the time and I predict that we will become a part of the Beach Club family. Although I have not met Ellen it seems like we met already, and that is a feeling... More

Just spent two weeks at the Driftwood. This is a really friendly timeshare property right accross from the beach. Very clean unit with modernised kitchen/lounge area. Bathroom is adequate but has not been updated. The let down for this property is that the air conditioning unit is positioned in a walk in closet in the bedroom and is noisy all... More
