You have direct access to the beach; two pools; and it is walkable to a number of restaurants and shopping. It is very rustic, but units are very clean & well maintained. Love all the historical artifacts found throughout the resort. Staff is very responsive and friendly.

Stayed in room 202 in high rise. Room was a studio rated a silver crown by RCI. WE FOUND IT VERY CRAMPED FOR 2 people. The bed was in a boxed in area with a 6-12 inch perimeter around it. The only storage space for our clothes was the equivalent of 2 two drawer pedestals which is not really adequate... More

Stayed here for four nights over Christmas. First two nights were in a one bedroom with a loft that had a shared deck/balcony with the 3 other rooms on the same level and it overlooked the pool, restaurant and ocean. Really nice to have coffee and watch the surf. Room had a bit of a smell to it but not... More

Every one who works here are very friendly and go out of there way to make you feel welcome. This is the second time we stayed here. Good location right on the ocean. Waldo's is a great place for lunch or dinner. Friendly staff.

We usually try to book this resort thru AFVC......we enjoy the food, the views from the rockers that face the ocean, and just the general area, Never had a dirty room, always had friendly office staff. If I stay at one resort it's here. Wish there was more availability thru the winter , but we keep trying!!

Oceanfront, spacious, clean rooms. Friendly staff. Park your car and they have 2 swimming pools, tiki bar with restaurant, live music on the patio/ pool deck. And walking distance to other popular Vero restaurants and shopping. Just an awesome place to get away. Thoroughly enjoyed my birthday.

Apparently, they use the excuse its dirty and smells real bad because, this place is historic (1940's) really? Ive stayed at places from the 1700's that are beautiful and clean. This dump states because they are historic it may smell or seem dirty? But get over it! And that we as paying customers should deal with it and pay them... More

Sorry you feel the way you do. As is evidenced by the VAST majority of reviews here most do not share your optinion. Since your review lacked anything specific except that you thought the Driftwood should be torn down I have nothing to say except that we are sorry you didn't like the property which is on the National Registry...
